While the Obama administration celebrates the death of Osama Bin Laden and our military forces are poking around in caves all over Afghanistan looking for members of al-Qaeda, a far more dangerous threat is growing right in our own backyard. Hezbollah has established bases all over Mexico, Central America and South America. Hezbollah is now heavily involved in the drug trade and in trafficking illegal aliens. But do we hear about any of this in the news? No, instead our government and our media are obsessed with al-Qaeda. This is a fundamental mistake. Hezbollah is far more organized and far more dangerous.
One local television news program recently interviewed a former U.S. intelligence agent who has spent many years tracking Hezbollah activities in Mexico. The following are some quotes from that interview about Hezbollah....
*"They are recognized by many experts as the 'A' team of Muslim terrorist organizations."
*"We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico."
*"they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans"
*"They're focusing on developing … infiltrating communities within North America."
Right now they are making a ton of money from selling drugs and trafficking illegal aliens, and they send that money back to Lebanon to fund the fight against Israel. But someday the organization that Hezbollah has built up in Mexico will be used to fight against the United States.
The following is a video news report that contains the quotes you just read above....
So why doesn't the U.S. government do something about all this?
That is a very good question.
In our recent article entitled "The Truth About Securing The Border" we noted that the U.S. seems more than happy to help other nations secure their borders and yet refuses to secure our own....
Is there a reason why the U.S. government refuses to secure our border with Mexico?
After all, we seem more than happy to help other nations secure their borders.
In fact, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has just agreed to help Saudi Arabia secure its dangerous border areas near Yemen.
Not only that, we have secured the border between South Korea and North Korea so well that not a single North Korean has crossed over the border illegally in over 50 years.
And yet we continue to leave our border with Mexico completely wide open.
Not only is doing so insanely bad public policy, it also greatly endangers our national security.
Border officials tell us that a growing number of radical Muslims are sneaking over the Mexican border into the United States.
And we are doing almost nothing to stop them.
Our government likes to pretend that they are serious about national security, but the truth is that they are asleep at the switch.
Illegal immigration is rampant and our border is wide open.
In fact, our border with Mexico is now being called "the most dangerous place on earth".
Someday our lack of border security and our tolerance of Hezbollah in Mexico is really going to bit us on our backsides.
So what do all of you think about this? Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts below....
