Israel Bombs Iranians in Syria

It appears that Israel has fired missiles at a base in Syria from where they believe the chemical attack in Damascus was launched. Iran is also known to operate from this base.

Imagine that, Israel retaliating for Iran using chemical weapons on Muslim children. Just let that sink in. Israel is defending Muslim children from being gassed by other Muslims for being the wrong kind of Muslims.

Dearborn Raid Linked to Hezbollah

I've seen a lot of speculation about last weeks FBI rain in Dearborn that took place near some relatives of Huma Abedin.

You can stop speculating, here is the real deal from DOJ presser.


Ali Kourani, 32, of the Bronx, New York, and Samer el Debek, 37, of Dearborn, Michigan, aka, “Samer Eldebek,” were arrested on Thursday, June 1, on charges related to their alleged activities on behalf of Hizballah, a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security Dana Boente, Acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim for the Southern District of New York, Assistant Director in Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. of the FBI’s New York Office, and Commissioner James P. O’Neill of the NYPD made the announcement.

Acting U.S. Attorney Kim said: “Today, we announce serious terrorism charges against two men who allegedly trained with and supported the Islamic Jihad Organization, a component of the foreign terrorist organization Hizballah. Recruited as Hizballah operatives, Samer El Debek and Ali Kourani allegedly received military-style training, including in the use of weapons like rocket-propelled grenade launchers and machine guns for use in support of the group’s terrorist mission. At the direction of his Hizballah handlers, El Debek allegedly conducted missions in Panama to locate the U.S. and Israeli Embassies and to assess the vulnerabilities of the Panama Canal and ships in the Canal. Kourani allegedly conducted surveillance of potential targets in America, including military and law enforcement facilities in New York City. Thanks to the outstanding work of the FBI and NYPD, the allegedly destructive designs of these two Hizballah operatives have been thwarted, and they will now face justice in a Manhattan federal court.”

Assistant Director in Charge Sweeney Jr. said: “The charges announced today reveal once again that the New York City region remains a focus of many adversaries, demonstrated as alleged in this instance by followers of a sophisticated and determined organization with a long history of coordinating violent activities on behalf of Hizballah. Our announcement today also reveals, however, that the dozens of agencies working together with our FBI JTTFs nationwide are just as determined to disrupt the plans of those working to harm our communities. I’d like to thank the hundreds of investigators who comprise the FBI’s New York JTTF and display constant vigilance on our behalf, and I encourage the public to remain engaged and to immediately report suspicious activity to law enforcement.”

Commissioner O’Neill said: “As part of his work for Hezbollah, Kourani and others allegedly conducted covert surveillance of potential targets, including U.S. military bases and Israeli military personnel here in New York City. Pre-operational surveillance is one of the hallmarks of Hezbollah in planning for future attacks. As alleged, Kourani, on at least two occasions, received sophisticated military training overseas, including the use of a rocket propelled grenade. In addition, El Debek is charged in an unrelated complaint, for allegedly possessing extensive bomb making training received from Hezbollah. Today’s charges of two for their work on behalf of Hezbollah is a tribute to the collaborative work of the agents and detectives of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.”

Kourani was arrested in the Bronx for providing, attempting, and conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah; receiving and conspiring to receive military-type training from Hizballah; a related weapons offense that is alleged to have involved, among other weapons, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and machine guns; violating and conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA); and naturalization fraud to facilitate an act of international terrorism. Kourani was presented on Friday, June 2, before Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses in Manhattan federal court.

El Debek was arrested in Livonia, Michigan, outside of Detroit, for providing, attempting and conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah; receiving and conspiring to receive military-type training from Hizballah; use of weapons in connection with a crime of violence that is alleged to have involved, among other weapons, explosives, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and machine guns; and violating and conspiring to violate IEEPA. El Debek was presented on June 5, before Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman in Manhattan federal court.

As alleged in the criminal Complaints against Kourani and el Debek,[1] both of which were unsealed today in Manhattan federal court:

Background on Hizballah and the Islamic Jihad Organization

Hizballah is a Lebanon-based Shia Islamic organization with political, social, and terrorist components. Hizballah was founded in the 1980s with support from Iran after the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and its mission includes establishing a fundamentalist Islamic state in Lebanon. Since Hizballah’s formation, the organization has been responsible for numerous terrorist attacks that have killed hundreds, including U.S. citizens and military personnel. In 1997, the U.S. Department of State designated Hizballah a Foreign Terrorist Organization, pursuant to Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, and it remains so designated today. In 2001, pursuant to Executive Order 13224, the U.S. Department of Treasury designated Hizballah a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity. In 2010, State Department officials described Hizballah as the most technically capable terrorist group in the world, and a continued security threat to the U.S.

The Islamic Jihad Organization (“IJO”), which is also known as the External Security Organization and “910,” is a component of Hizballah responsible for the planning and coordination of intelligence, counterintelligence, and terrorist activities on behalf of Hizballah outside of Lebanon. In July 2012, an IJO operative detonated explosives on a bus transporting Israeli tourists in the vicinity of an airport in Burgas, Bulgaria, which killed six people and injured 32 others. Law enforcement authorities have disrupted several other IJO attack-planning operations around the world, including the arrest of an IJO operative surveilling Israeli targets in Cyprus in 2012, the seizure of bomb-making precursor chemicals in Thailand in 2012, including chemicals manufactured by a medical devices company based in Guangzhou, China (“Guangzhou Company-1”), and a similar seizure of chemicals manufactured by Guangzhou Company-1 in Cyprus in May 2015 in connection with the arrest of another IJO operative.

Kourani’s Alleged Support of Hizballah

Kourani, who was born in Lebanon, attended Hizballah-sponsored weapons training in Lebanon in 2000 when he was approximately 16 years old. After lawfully entering the U.S. in 2003, Kourani obtained a Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering in 2009, and a Masters of Business Administration in 2013.

Kourani and certain of his relatives were present during the summer 2006 conflict between Israel and Hizballah in Lebanon, when a residence belonging to his family was destroyed. Kourani was subsequently recruited to join the IJO by 2008. In August 2008, Kourani submitted an application for naturalization in the U.S. in which he falsely claimed, among other things, that he was not affiliated with a terrorist organization. In April 2009, Kourani became a naturalized citizen and was issued a U.S. passport. Despite claiming in his passport application that he had no travel plans, Kourani traveled to Guangzhou, China – the location of Guangzhou Company-1 – on May 3, 2009. He later claimed to the FBI that the purpose of the trip was to meet with medical device manufacturers and other businessmen.

Kourani was assigned an IJO handler, or mentor, responsible for providing him with taskings, debriefings, and arranging training. Kourani sometimes communicated with his handler using coded email communications, including messages sent by the handler that informed Kourani of the need to return to Lebanon. In order to establish contact with his handler when Kourani returned to Lebanon, Kourani called a telephone number associated with a pager (the “IJO Pager”) and provided a code that he understood was specific to him. After Kourani called the IJO Pager, the handler would contact Kourani to set up an in-person meeting by calling a phone belonging to one of Kourani’s relatives. The IJO also provided Kourani with additional training in tradecraft, weapons, and tactics. In 2011, for example, Kourani attended an IJO military training camp located in the vicinity of Birkat Jabrur, Lebanon, where he was provided with military-tactics and weapons training, including training in the use of a rocket propelled grenade launcher, an AK-47 assault rifle, an MP5 submachine gun, a PKS machine gun (a Russian-made belt-fed weapon), and a Glock pistol.

Based on other taskings from IJO personnel, which were conveyed during periodic in-person meetings when Kourani returned to Lebanon, Kourani conducted operations that included searching for weapons suppliers in the U.S. who could provide firearms to support IJO operations, identifying individuals affiliated with the Israeli Defense Force, gathering information regarding operations and security at airports in the U.S. and elsewhere, and surveilling U.S. military and law enforcement facilities in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Kourani transmitted some of the products of his surveillance and intelligence-gathering efforts back to IJO personnel in Lebanon using digital storage media.

El Debek’s Alleged Support of Hizballah

El Debek, a naturalized U.S. citizen, was first recruited by Hizballah in late 2007 or early 2008, began to receive a salary from Hizballah shortly thereafter, and was paid by Hizballah through approximately 2015. In July 2006, shortly before he was recruited by Hizballah, el Debek expressed by email his support for Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hizballah.

El Debek received military training from Hizballah in Lebanon on several occasions, from approximately 2008 through approximately 2014. El Debek received training in basic military tactics, the handling of various weapons, surveillance and counter-surveillance techniques, and the creation and handling of explosives and explosive devices. Based on information el Debek provided to the FBI, FBI bomb technicians have assessed that el Debek received extensive training as a bomb-maker, has a high degree of technical sophistication in the area, and was trained in techniques and methods similar to those used to construct the improvised explosive device used in Hizballah’s 2012 Burgas, Bulgaria, bus bombing, a bombing that el Debek reported was carried out by a relative of his. El Debek received by email in 2010 a list of raw materials that could be sent from Syria or Dubai, including items often used in explosives and improvised explosive devices.

El Debek also conducted missions for Hizballah in Thailand and Panama. In May 2009, el Debek traveled from Lebanon, through Malaysia, to Thailand, where his mission was to clean up explosive precursors in a house in Bangkok that others had left because they were under surveillance. El Debek used his U.S. passport to enter and leave Thailand, consistent with his instructions from Hizballah to use his U.S. passport so he could travel from Malaysia to Thailand without obtaining a visa.

El Debek first traveled to Panama for Hizballah in 2011, where his operational tasks included locating the U.S. and Israeli Embassies, casing security procedures at the Panama Canal and the Israeli Embassy, and locating hardware stores where explosive precursors could be purchased. Shortly before traveling to Panama, el Debek updated his status on Facebook with a post that read, in part, “Do not make peace or share food with those who killed your people.”

In early 2012, el Debek again traveled to Panama for Hizballah, passing through New York and New Jersey, and was asked to identify areas of weakness and construction at the Panama Canal, as well as provide information about how close someone could get to a ship passing through the Canal. Upon his return from Panama, el Debek’s IJO handlers asked him for photographs of the U.S. Embassy there and details about its security procedures.

El Debek has told the FBI that he was detained by Hizballah from December 2015 to April 2016 and falsely accused of spying for the U.S. Between November 2014 and February 2017, el Debek, who received religious training from Hizballah, has conducted more than 250 Facebook searches using search terms such as “martyrs of the holy defense,” “martyrs of Islamic resistance,” “Hizballah martyrs,” and “martyrs of the Islamic resistance in Lebanon.”

Huffpo Hates??? Oh Come On One Guess


Carlos Almonte and Huffpo, not all that far apart.

How far will The Huffington Post go to legitimize and whitewash Palestinian terrorists, dehumanize their Jewish victims, and incite hatred against Israel? See for yourself in this explosive new documentary video, produced by SaveTheWest.com.

SaveTheWest’s examination revealed five key facts:

(1) Of the 105 Palestinian terror attacks during this period, HuffPost ignored 94 of them, meaning they never appeared on either its front page or World page, its two highest-traffic pages that deal with international news.

(2) Of the 11 stories concerning attacks that HuffPost did cover – all of which were wire service reports from the AP or Reuters – in 9 cases it manipulated either (a) the provided headline copy, to blur the distinction between Palestinian terrorists and their Jewish victims, or (b) the headline imagery, to evoke sympathy for Palestinians. In one case, it falsely implied that Israel was the aggressor. In another, it insinuated that Israeli Jews are murderous racists.

Hezbollah Perp Gets Juiced Via Remote Control

It's not nice to mess with the Juices toys

splodey dopes_2.jpg
A member of Hezbollah was killed when an Israeli listening device exploded in southern Lebanon, the group said on Saturday.

On Friday, the army said that a "suspicious device" had been found near the town of Adloun, and that "the Israeli enemy blew it up remotely, killing a civilian who was in the area."

Hezbollah confirmed that the man killed was in fact one of its own.

Hezbollah Blames JUICE for Assassination of Leader

And you know what? Normally they'd be right. But Lebanon is square in the middle of a proxy war between Sunni opponents of Syria's Assad regime and Hezbollah, which is sending its terrorists to fight on behalf of Assad.

So, consider this rhetoric. Both sides always blame the JOOs for everything bad that happens. They're like gremlins, those wascally Jews! Don't feed them after midnight.

Hezbollah on Wednesday said one of its leaders had been assassinated near Beirut and accused Israel of being behind the killing.

"The Islamic resistance announces the death of one of its leaders, the martyr Hassan Hawlo al-Lakiss, who was assassinated near his house in the Hadath region" east of Beirut, Hezbollah television channel Al Manar said.

"Direct accusation is aimed of course against the Israeli enemy which had tried to eliminate our martyred brother again and again and in several places but had failed, until yesterday evening," a Hezbollah statement broadcast by the channel said.

I guess if I'm being honest with myself, I really don't care who killed this guy. The fact that he's dead is good enough.

Excellent: Son of President of S.A. Banana Republic Indicted for Aiding Hezbollah

The bad news: the son of the President of Suriname is willing to help any bad guy for a buck. And I do mean anybody. This guy was already in jail for drug trafficking.

Drug traffickers, terrorists: six of one, half a dozen of the other.

The good news: the "Hezbollah agents" this guy flew all over the world to meet with to help them set up a training base in the jungles of Suriname were really federal agents.

I wonder if federalpoundmeintheassprison is much different than a Surinamese jail?

U.S. prosecutors in New York have charged the son of the president of Suriname with terrorism offenses.

An indictment unsealed Friday says Dino Bouterse (BOW'-tur-say) agreed to provide heavy weapons and a home base in his South American country to U.S. operatives pretending to be with the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.

Funny enough, I just got through reading a novel in which the dictator of an imaginary country lodged between Suriname and French Guyana did something pretty close to this.

Hezbollah Shoots Down Zionist Endangered Species Eagle

The eyes of the Juice, they're everywhere:

Hezbollah’s Al-Manar website recently boasted of capturing an eagle that carried an Israel-labeled transmission device on its back and claimed the bird was an Israeli spy. It said hunters in central Lebanon shot down the bird and found devices on it as well as a copper ring on its leg that reads “Israel” in English followed by letters that refer to Tel Aviv University. The fate of the eagle remains unclear.

Israeli ornithologist Yossi Leshem said Thursday he was tracking the bird for research and was “incredibly frustrated” it was harmed.

It's all making sense now...

San Antonio, TX: Accused Alleged Hezbollah Member Referred To As God Of Death...

Update on my previous post regarding a lying sack of alleged 'ex' Hezbollah shite who tried to get a sensitive DoD position.

This is disturbing, is so many ways: [Prosecutor]Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”"

In the defense's version, Wissam Allouche was a former linguist for the U.S. Army who ran a gas station in Northeast San Antonio as he became an American citizen.
But to counterterrorism officials, Allouche, 44, belonged to Hezbollah, falsely claimed to be a U.S. special forces officer during visits to Fort Sam Houston, and even tried to hook up with women at the post, possibly to gain access to sensitive information.[...]

For more than three years, the task force has been investigating Allouche, and even used an undercover person to record conversations with him, authorities said.

The FBI raided his then-home in Universal City in 2011, and found documents which they claim he fabricated to falsely show he had security clearances, membership in U.S. special forces and Defense Department intelligence units.

“He admitted on tape that he was a member of Amal and that he was a commander of Hezbollah,” prosecutor Mark Roomberg told the judge, who agreed to keep Allouche behind bars pending trial.

Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”[...]

Allouche was a Israeli POW:
Army Criminal Investigations agent Jeff Cram, a member of the task force, testified that an investigation revealed Allouche's ties. And, Cram said, Allouche was seen by at least two people at Fort Sam dressed in U.S. military uniform displaying insignias from special forces.
Continued below:

See another profile of the allahdouche here

He also boasted to women on base of being in the special forces, Cram testified.

While Orr argued that it could have simply been flirtation, Roomberg and Cram alleged a “honey pot” or a “honey trap” situation — recruiting someone into espionage through a romantic relationship.

“So being flirtatious would give him access” to sensitive information? Roomberg asked.

“Yes, sir,” Cram responded.

Cram also testified the task force received eight photos from a source showing Allouche during his days with Amal and Hezbollah. In them, he's holding assault rifles or rocket propelled grenades, Cram said.

“He was given at least three aliases,” Cram testified.

One meant “god of death,” Cram said, adding that Allouche was also known for “acting crazy or acting dangerously.”

If convicted of lying in his naturalization forms, Allouche faces up to 10 years in prison, and his citizenship would be revoked. He faces up to five years for the charge of lying on security-clearance forms.

State Dept. Calls For Hezbollah To Leave Syria

I voted for Bronco and all I got...

They must be dreaming of rainbows and unicorns:

The State Department called for Hezbollah fighters to leave Syria Wednesday amid growing reports of the Islamic group’s participation in the civil war.

Spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters that the State Department’s demand comes as a response to Hezbollah’s recent vow for victory in Syria.

In a televised statement Saturday, Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese Shia militant Hezbollah movement, claimed to work for President Assad’s forces and would not allow the Sunni rebels to win the civil war in Syria.

Secretary of State John Kerry has recognized Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria and said that Iran is supporting the militant group.

Syria: Speaking Of Hezbollah

Phillip Smyth has an excellent post at Foreign Policy titled "Hezbollah's Fallen Soldiers".

He has been compiling of list of "Hezbollah Cavalcade' aka their deaths using pro-Hezbollah social media sites including Hezbollah's official announcements.

"The presence of veteran fighters in Syria underlines the importance of this campaign for Hezbollah"

Hezbollah is throwing its men into battle in the Syrian city of Qusayr, and many are returning to Lebanon in coffins. Through their funerals and commemorations posted on pro-Hezbollah Facebook pages, we are now getting a sense of the casualties that the self-proclaimed "Party of God" is suffering as it joins the Syrian conflict on the side of President Bashar al-Assad.

It's no secret why Qusayr is a vital piece of real estate for both the Syrian regime and the Lebanese paramilitary group. The city is a strategic link in the Syrian communications chain, connecting the capital of Damascus, Syria's Alawite-dominated coastal highlands, and Hezbollah's heartland in Lebanon's Beqaa Valley. The Lebanese border is only a few miles to the city's west, and the Damascus-Aleppo highway lies to its east.

Hezbollah maintains a tight lid on information about its fighters. The Lebanese paramilitary organization does not acknowledge that its fighters are being killed in Syria, and employs vague language to explain their deaths: All fighters who have been killed in Syria are said to have died performing their "Jihadist duties." Secretary of State John Kerry said on May 22 there were "several thousands" of Hezbollah fighters engaged in combat in Syria.

But Hezbollah can't conceal the reality of their fighters' deaths in Syria entirely. The group often announces a fighter's death on the day of the funeral, or a day before it. These funerals are carefully scripted, and access by non-Hezbollah media is severely restricted. New York Times reporter Anne Barnard was even thrown out of a funeral when she was covering the death of Hassan Faysal Shuker, one of 12 dead Hezbollah members named by the organization during the height of the fighting in Qusayr.

[Continue reading]

The article is well worth the read especially since Mr Smyth is well versed in this area.

Also, he has a new post up at Jihadology, a new edition to Jihadology

Expanding the Scope of Jihadology: Intro to the #HizballahCavalcade

What is Hizballah Cavalcade?

The new and improved Hizballah Cavalcade has now moved to its new home and will present new information here at Jihadology. Beginning as a humble Twitter hashtag ( #HizballahCavalcade) by Phillip Smyth, Hizballah Cavalcade initially sought to post photos of Lebanese Hizballah members killed in Syria and their funerals.

Hizballah Cavalcade will now also focus on (but is not limited to) organizations such as: Lebanon’s Hizballah and Harakat Amal (Amal Movement); Iraq’s Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq’s (League of the Righteous), Kata’ib Hizballah (Hizballah Brigades), and Liwa’a al-Yum al-Mawud (Promised Day Brigades); and Syria’s new Liwa’a Abu Fadhl al-Abbas (The Abu Fadl al-Abbas Brigade).

Snippet of his new post:
Hizballah Cavalcade: The Qusayr Meat Grinder: Hizballah’s Dead From May 20-May 25, 2013The five day period from May 20-25th saw a massive rise in the number of Hizballah funerals which occurred across Lebanon. There were also group funerals. One occurred in the Bekka city of Ba’albek and is shown below.

An undeniable trend, which has also become much more widespread, is the insistence that every dead Hizballah member was a “Defender” of Damascus’s Sayda Zaynab Shrine. During earlier announcements and funerals, the Zaynab Shrine and it’s protection were invoked quite regularly, but this shift demonstrates a more full acceptance of the narrative that all Hizballah members who are dying in Syria are “Protecting the Lady Zaynab”. On Facebook, albums holding the pictures of Hizballah’s dead from Syria have been entitled, “The Campaign to Defend Saydah Zaynab’s Shrine” to “Zaynab’s Defenders”. The narrative disregards whether these fighters were serving in the countryside near Qusayr, Damascus, or elsewhere within Syria. Instead, the main theme is that all actions executed in Syria are done to protect the Zaynab Shrine. Of course, this promotes more sectarian aspects of the war in Syria and with Hizballah’s involvement.

The listed Hizballah members were all confirmed by checking close to 30 pro-Hizballah and official Hizballah forums, Facebook pages, and websites[More..

Phillip Smyth is also a very funny dude.

Alleged Member Of Hezbollah Indicted In San Antonio, Texas
Wissam Allouche Tried To Get A Sensitive DoD Position

Oh my

The FBI has arrested a San Antonio man on charges he lied to get into the United States and tried to get a sensitive Defense Department position.

Wissam Allouche, 44, appeared for an initial hearing Friday afternoon, and shook his head when U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad read the charges leveled in a federal indictment. The judge ordered him held pending a bail hearing and his arraignment Tuesday.

“He allegedly tried to cover up his affiliation with Hezbollah,” said special agent Erik Vasys, spokesman for the FBI in San Antonio. “It is believed he was looking to secure a sensitive position with the U.S. government at some point.”[More...]

"Hezbollah Fighters Killed In Syria Will Go To Hell" Says Former Leader

Former Hezbollah Secretary General Sheikh Sobhi Tfaili criticized the participation of Hezbollah fighters in the Syrian conflict, saying those who are killed in Syria will “go to hell” and are not considered martyrs.

During a televised interview this week, Tfaili “confirmed” that Hezbollah is fighting alongside the regime in Syria.

“Hezbollah members who kill children, terrorize people and destroy houses in Syria will not be martyrs and will end up in hell,” he said.

Tfaili added that Shiites in Syria do not need anyone to stand up for them[...]

Mad Mullahs/Assad: How dare The Juice Interrupt Our Transfer Of WMD To Our Beloved Hezbollah..

Iran threatens to attack Tel Aviv in retaliation for IAF airstrike on Syria

[ZIP]In Iran, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday as saying the raid on Syria will have significant implications for the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

[FPM]On Sunday, Israeli Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom told Army Radio that the country’s top security officials had held a special meeting and warned that the transfer of Syrian chemical weapons to Hezbollah would be crossing a line that would mean action.

It was not the first time that Israel had warned Assad not to follow in the footsteps of his former ally, Saddam Hussein, but it was the sharpest warning to date. The warning was clearly meant to head off a specific course of action by Syria. But true to form, Bashar Assad did not listen.

Report: Israeli Jets Strike Convoy Along Syrian Border

Syria denies strike on convoy and said IAF struck a "research facility"

(CNN) -- Israeli fighter jets struck overnight a suspected Syrian convoy along the Lebanese-Syrian border believed to be moving weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday.

Fighter jets struck the vehicles because they were carrying SA-17 missile parts, a Russian-made medium-range delivery system, and equipment that could have been employed in an attack against Israel, another source told CNN.

But Damascus said the strike had instead targeted a research facility near the Syrian capital.

"Israeli warplanes penetrated our airspace at dawn today and directly bombed one of the scientific research centers responsible for raising the level of resistance and self-defense in the area of Jimraya in the Damascus countryside," the military said in a statement aired on state-run television. "This comes after multiple failed attempts over months by terrorist groups to enter and seize the mentioned site."[More...]

Hezbollah has been wanting to add extra weapons to their arsenal.

As @ChallahHuAkbar notes on "Syrian Research Facilities": "activities focus substantively on the development of biological and chemical weapons". Quoted via treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages

EU: Killing Jews Doesn't Make You a Terrorist

A Bus Full of Jews Killed by Not-A-Terrorist

I'm not sure how else to read this:

Hezbollah may not be included on the European Union's list of terrorist groups even if it did bomb Jewish tourists in Bulgaria, the EU's top counter-terrorism official reportedly said....

“There is no automatic listing just because you have been behind a terrorist attack," de Kerchove is quoted as saying. "It's not only the legal requirement that you have to take into consideration, it's also a political assessment of the context and the timing."

"Context". You know, like if the victims were Jews or not.

Thanks to Jon.

Mad Mullah's Heart & Support Palestinian Terror Organizations

Hemorrhoid itches.... people looking.... must not scratch... must not scratch...

Via the Evil Juice Intel Center

1. The military capabilities of Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) were revealed in Operation Pillar of Defense. Those capabilities were the product of massive Iranian support constructed around an arsenal of many thousands of rockets, both standard and manufactured by the terrorist organizations themselves (using Iranian technical knowhow). They included medium-range Fajr-5 rockets (made in Iran) and M75s (manufactured in the Gaza Strip). The massive rocket fire targeting Israeli civilian population centers, including a number of rockets fired at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, was made possible by Iran's support for the terrorist organizations.[1]

2. Aid from Iran to Hamas and the PIJ in the years before operative arrived in the Gaza Strip overland, by air and by sea, facilitated by border-crossing networks of smugglers and merchants. The main route for smuggling arms was from Iran to Sudan and from Sudan to Egypt and into the Gaza Strip through the smuggling tunnels controlled by Hamas. The sea route was also used, as revealed on March 15, 2011 when the freighter Victoria was seized by the IDF. The ship was carrying arms bound for the Gaza Strip by way of Egypt, whose arrival would upgrade military capabilities of the terrorist organizations. Among the weapons on board the Victoria were C704 anti-ship missiles, which could be used to attack not only military and civilian vessels but also strategic targets in the southern Israeli cities of Ashdod and Ashqelon.

3. Until Operation Pillar of Defense, Iran and the terrorist organizations supported by it were careful, for security and political considerations,to keep secret Iran's military aid and the network smuggling weapons into the Gaza Strip.

Egypt's Envoy To Lebanon: Cairo Will Work With Hezbollah

Because the terror group is a real political and military force.

Arab spring just keeps on giving!

[E]gypt’s ambassador to Lebanon said his country will pursue a relationship with Hezbollah, a “real political and military force,” The Daily Star reported Saturday. If implemented, the decision would constitute a dramatic policy shift from that of the former Hosni Mubarak administration.

Egypt’s relations with Hezbollah, a Shi’ite Islamic group that is considered a terror organization by the United States, have been strained, in large part, by Cairo’s 1979 peace accord with Israel. The ambassador’s comments on a possible Hezbollah-Egyptian rapprochement came on the heels of the passage of the controversial Muslim Brotherhood-backed constitution by President Mohammed Morsi last week.

Speaking from his office in Beirut, Ashraf Hamdy told the Lebanese news source that Egypt’s new foreign policy objectives include the need to explore fresh modes of communications, which means keeping regional contacts “tight,” even with its enemies.

h/t @StandWithUs

As you may know, Hezbollah is a US Designated Foreign Terror Organization. Providing services to them is illegal. In other words, I bet Randy Bush is happy about Egypt working with Hezbollah. he hearts Hezbollah and child porn.

From a earlier post by Howie:

Randy the technical contact for Hezbollah's DNS record responds to our request that www. DNS record be frozen


Go Fuck ourselves? Now that's not very nice. Not very nice at all. What other causes does Randy support? Porn, child porn.

MEMRI Research Fellow Mansour Al-Hadj Justifies Facebook Shutting Down Hizbullah, Taliban Pages

As you will note in the video they show one of Hamas' twitter accounts (@AlquassamBrigade). What's more, CloudFlare refuses to stop providing services to quassam.ps because censorship. This is what I received after I contacted them:

CloudFlare received your abuse report dated December 20, 2012 regarding:

Your abuse report was denied due to a lack of evidence. We cooperate with all appropriate law enforcement agencies where appropriate.

Please also review our stance on censorship: http://blog.cloudflare.com/58611873

God forbid they comply to US designating Hamas as a foreign terror org.(FTO). This brings to mind, why doesn't the State Dept. do something? There is no intel, nada to be had at Hamas websites, just terror propaganda.

ATTN Hizbullah's Al Manor TV & Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

Dah Juice OWND your Facebook pages, bitches

Congrats MEMRI and thank you Facebook

MEMRI's series of articles on Hizbullah's Facebook activity and its multiple Facebook pages was followed by Facebook's August 2012 removal of Hizbullah and Al-Manar pages; MEMRI's activity against Hizbullah's social media activities has been reported by the Lebanese media.

Following this removal of the previous Hizbullah and Al-Manar TV Facebook pages, and after vowing to return to Facebook, Hizbullah created two new Facebook pages for its Al-Manar TV, as MEMRI reported on August 22, 2012.

Last night, Facebook removed these two new Hizbullah Al-Manar TV pages, as well as a page belonging to Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah. This latter page, while it was created in October 2011, has never been shut down; its removal is a new move for Facebook.[More...]

When Hezbollah Work Days Go Terribly Right

If every day on the job working for Hezbollah were like this, we'd all be better off:

Lebanon's Hezbollah has announced the deaths of three of its fighters in a series of blasts at a weapons-storage depot in the country's eastern Bekaa Valley.

A Lebanese security official had previously said that at least nine people were killed in Wednesday's explosions, including four Syrian workers.

Fatwa? Hezbollah Leader Calls For Week Of Deeply Uncivilized Rage Against Mohammed Video

Deeply Uncivilized rage boys [h/t B'emetOr]

Nasrallah out did himself by calling the movie "the worst attack ever on Islam".

...Nasrallah told followers to stagger their protests around the country. He called for protests in southern Beirut on Monday, in the southern city of Tyre on Wednesday, in the eastern city of Baalbek on Friday, in Bint Jbeil in south Lebanon on Saturday, and in Hermel in the eastern Bekaa valley region on Sunday. All are majority Shia areas.

He also called for people across the Islamic world to demonstrate against the film, which he described as "the worst attack ever on Islam, worse than the Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, the burning of the Quran in Afghanistan and the cartoons in the European media".

"There should be resolutions adopted in top international institutions, that are binding on all states and governments in the world, to forbid the defamation of religions," said Nasrallah, adding attacks on Muslims were "frequent".

"Those who write or draw or make such a film would know that they would be punished wherever they are, and they would not feel protected," the Hezbollah chief said.

He also blamed the United States for the film.

Dear Nasrallah, is this what you mean by drawing stuff?

Fatwa me you fat assed bitch!

Howie wants one first, though.

San Jose Imam Arrested in Mexico, Hezbollah Ties

Another American Muslim arrested as a terrorist, yet I didn't see a single story about this over the past few days. Not even on Fox News. Jewish Press:

Over the weeked, three suspected members of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, a proxy group for Iran, were arrested in the capital city of the Yucatan Province, Mexico.

One of the three, Rafic Mohamad Labboun Allaboun, 44, is a Lebanese American. According to Benito Rosell Isaac, head of the Mexican National Migration Institute (INM) in Yucatan, Labboun had a warrant out for his arrest from Houston, Texas, and he was deported there within hours of his arrest. He had a court appearance on Monday morning, September 10, and then was returned to the San Jose division of the Northern District Court of California....

Labboun was convicted by a jury on July 19, 2010, on seven counts of bank fraud. The fraud involved the creation of false lines of credit between several US banks. Credit cards and checks from those lines were then used to obtain more than $100,000 in gold from Saudi Arabia. The money is believed to have ended up in Lebanon, and was allegedly used to finance terrorist activities by Hezbollah. The money was never recovered.

After he served his time and was released, he jumped parole and fled to Mexico where he and two others were arrested over the weekend and then deported to the US. Local media reported that a full military style assault led to the trio's capture and that this was an indication that far more was going on here then a simple parole violation.

U.S. Seizes $150 Million in Alleged Hezbollah-Linked Cash


Iranian Quds Day demos, note Hezbollah flag


U.S. officials said Monday they seized $150 million connected to a scheme in which entities linked to Hezbollah allegedly used the U.S. financial system to launder money through West Africa and back to the group’s base of Lebanon.

The seizure stems from a civil lawsuit filed last year by federal prosecutors in Manhattan against defunct Lebanese Canadian Bank, or LCB, and two Lebanese exchange houses seeking more than $480 million in funds allegedly derived from drug trafficking and other criminal activity passing through the U.S. financial system.[More...]

Not So Fast: Hezbollah iPad, iPhone, Android App Back

Ugh. They're ba-aack:

Hezbollah’s smart­phone appli­ca­tion, launched at the end of July but promptly removed by Apple and Google, has been rere­leased for the Android oper­at­ing sys­tem and is “back on Ipad and Iphone,” accord­ing to Al-Manar, the Lebanese ter­ror­ist organization’s satel­lite tele­vi­sion station....

n an effort to avoid dis­trib­u­tor poli­cies and con­trol, the new appli­ca­tions are down­load­able directly from Al-Manar’s web­site, which is hosted British server. The web­site also pro­vides instruc­tions, along with screen shots, on con­fig­ur­ing Android phones to accept appli­ca­tions “not sourced in Android Market.”

Wouldn't it just be easier to kill some people here? No, I am being serious. And by "kill" I do mean, you know, kill. I have no problem killing any one in Hezbollah. You join, you forfeit your life. Even if you are a so-called "journalist" or webmaster for the terror group.

Better Late than Never: Facebook Pulls Plug on Hezbollah Account
Twitter Refuses to do the Same

The good news:

Facebook management has ordered the removal of pages belonging to Hezbollah and its Al-Manar television network, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the decision to ban Hezbollah from the popular social networking site was made due to Facebook's policy against terror incitement and hate propagation. The U.S. State Department included Al-Manar on its Terrorism Exclusion List in December 2004.

The bad news? Twitter refuses to take down Hezbollah's twitter account: @almanarnews

Hezbollah: There's an App for That

Or, at least, there was an app for that:

Apple and Google have removed a Hizballah-affiliated app from their electronic devices after less than a week, reports CNET.com. The program streamed Hizballah's television station al-Manar even though the media group was proscribed by the State Department's Terrorism Exclusion List in December 2004.
