Miami, Florida's high-profile Islamist, Sofian Zakkout, takes every opportunity to broadcast to the public about his board membership in local anti-crime groups, Crime Stoppers and Citizen's Crime Watch, and about his connections with government and law enforcement. Conversely, he is also very public about his support for the terrorist organization Hamas and white supremacist David Duke. In fact, he may be involved with Hamas, himself. This schizophrenic behavior has been going on for years, yet it would seem to any sane individual that Zakkout's two separate lives are at dangerous odds with one another and on the verge of collision.
Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, the founder and Director of the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA), was born in Gaza, grew up in Kuwait, and moved to the U.S. in 1977. Though he has been here nearly four decades, Zakkout has shown no interest in discarding his Gazan roots. Indeed, it would seem that he has come here to act as an operative within and to promote a Gazan agenda.
