HEZBOLLAH SWIMMING THE RIO GRANDE?
When I encountered chilling information on Hezbollah agents working in Mexico, I nearly fell out of my chair. I had met Palestinians in Israel who claimed to work in Hezbollah. They seemed like ordinary locals who made their living selling tourist trinkets. While I had no idea what these guys were capable of, they didn’t seem frightening. Of course, the lady who sat next to Ted Bundy found him to be charming before she discovered he was one of America’s most infamous serial killers. Regardless of what the Palestinians boys actually did at night, I would never have dreamed that one day they might be swimming across the Rio Grande to attack America.
The Arizonia Department of Public Safety reported to the contrary. Just a few months earlier, Al-Sevassah, a Kuwait newspaper, published a story claiming Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist groups were using Mexican nationals for their operation in Latin America. Surprise! Surprise! Whose name should show up in this escapade but Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. And of course, at the bottom of the barrel we find Columbian drug cartels trafficking for weapons. The picture got full exposure when Jameel Nasr was arrested in Tijuana a year ago. He was attempting to conduct a business deal selling thousands of U.S. arms stolen from American forces in Iraq to agents in Mexico for storage there.
Is the picture getting a little dark and gloomy for you? It is for me.
Here’s what the Tuscon Police department concluded: Islamic terrorist groups are working to create a base in Mexico by using connections with drug cartels. A terrorist network now exists in Mexico and Central America. The arsenal contains assault rifles, hand grenades, explosives, and anti-tank weapons. The Vito Carleone family is back big time, but they’re not speaking Sicilian anymore.
A year ago, Representative Sue Myrick wrote Homeland Security that intelligence gathering was needed on Hezbollah’s work on the U.S. and Mexican border. She suggested that Hezbollah operated like a Mafia family using protection threats on boarder residents.
Did you hear that reported by the press? I certainly didn’t.
Part of the problems seems to be that the U.S. State Department doesn’t want to report publically on this situation. Perhaps, they are attempting to position America to better encourage negotiations with Israel. Certainly, there is a value in that idea. However, we are now on the threshold of Israel attacking Iran and Syria is currently exploding in civil war. Iran claims they have the ability to strike the United States. Could they be talking about Hezbollah agents waiting in Mexico or now crossing the border?
The time to keep citizens in the dark to make them feel more secure would seem to be over. If people haven’t figured it out yet, Hezbollah enjoys setting off bombs on crowded buses in Jerusalem and killing children, women, anyone else in sight. They don’t make good neighbors (to put it mildly). We need to be watching the neighborhood!
I believe the hour is at hand to make people aware of the possibilities of what’s cooking on the border. We’re talking enchildades loaded with dynamite. Time to turn the oven off!
