An Israeli Arab who defrauded Muslims and Islamic organizations, including terrorist groups, is pleading with Canadian officials not to deport him to Israel because he fears for his life. Mohammed Mustaf Agbareia, a 39-year-old Nazareth native, is known as a career con artist who has been deported from Canada twice before. He is wanted by law enforcement authorities in Michigan and New York and has been convicted of fraud in England.
