Arizona Muslims draw FBI scrutiny

PHOENIX, Nov. 16 (UPI) — Muslim leaders in Arizona have drawn increased scrutiny from federal officials in the past year because of a string of suspicious incidents, officials say.

Although no one in the state has been accused of supporting terrorists, one Mesa, Ariz., man was charged with lying to the FBI during the terror financing investigation into a Muslim charity accused of funneling money to the Palestinian group Hamas, The Arizona Republic reported Sunday.

Also drawing attention to Arizona Muslims was a target-shooting episode in Phoenix that involved a large group of Muslim men and boys firing hundreds of rounds from AK-47s and other guns. Then there was the removal in 2006 of six Arizona-bound imams from a jetliner after passengers and crew complained of their behavior.  More from UPI.com
