The rise of jihad in our hemisphere. There is an extensive jihadi network involving what was described in this weekend's post: Hezb'Allah black market in Miami
Here is a report in Spanish showing that Hezbollah is all over South America, numbering in the thousands. (hat tip Tito the builder)
They're ready to come here. Muslims are declaring they will come speaking in Spanish, with bombs strapped to themselves. They will defy the typical profile and they will use the Mexican border.
Shia Iran spreads Islam via foreign terror proxies across the world. Now we see the the proliferation of jihad here -- south of the border.
The Sunni Saudis spread their jihad with billions, building mosques that incite to violence and jihad. The Saudi arm, North American Islamic Trust, has built over 80% of the mosques in America.
Sunni or shia ..........it's all Islam.
Here's an article from 2007 that elaborates.
Hezbollah builds a Western base (hat tip Debbie)
From inside South America’s Tri-border area, Iran-linked militia targets U.S.
CIUDAD DEL ESTE, Paraguay - The Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia has taken root in South America, fostering a well-financed force of Islamist radicals boiling with hatred for the United States and ready to die to prove it, according to militia members, U.S. officials and police agencies across the continent.
From its Western base in a remote region divided by the borders of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina known as the Tri-border, or the Triple Frontier, Hezbollah has mined the frustrations of many Muslims among about 25,000 Arab residents whose families immigrated mainly from Lebanon in two waves, after the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and after the 1985 Lebanese civil war.
An investigation by Telemundo and NBC News has uncovered details of an extensive smuggling network run by Hezbollah, a Shiite Muslim group founded in Lebanon in 1982 that the United States has labeled an international terrorist organization. The operation funnels large sums of money to militia leaders in the Middle East and finances training camps, propaganda operations and bomb attacks in South America, according to U.S. and South American officials.
U.S. officials fear that poorly patrolled borders and rampant corruption in the Tri-border region could make it easy for Hezbollah terrorists to infiltrate the southern U.S. border. From the largely lawless region, it is easy for potential terrorists, without detection, to book passage to the United States through Brazil and then Mexico simply by posing as tourists.
They are men like Mustafa Khalil Meri, a young Arab Muslim whom Telemundo interviewed in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay’s second-largest city and the center of the Tri-border region. There is nothing particularly distinctive about him, but beneath the everyday T-shirt he wears beats the heart of a devoted Hezbollah militiaman.
“If he attacks Iran, in two minutes Bush is dead,” Meri said. “We are Muslims. I am Hezbollah. We are Muslims, and we will defend our countries at any time they are attacked.”
