HEZBOLLAH – IRAN’S PROXY AGAINST THE UNITED STATES – Connection To MS-13 Invasion – Threat?

by Ruby Henley

I know that Hezbollah was birthed from the Israel/Iran conflict, and it may have started as a benign resistance against Israel.  I do not dispute that. I am living in the present day, and I am asking does the United States have a legitimate issue with Hezbollah and Iran at this time?

I will start from this perspective –  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hezbollah

Since 2012, Hezbollah has helped the Syrian government during the Syrian civil war in its fight against the Syrian opposition, which Hezbollah has described as a Zionist plot and a “Wahhabi-Zionist conspiracy” to destroy its alliance with Assad against Israel.[48][49] It has deployed its militia in both Syria and Iraq to fight or train local forces to fight against ISIS.[50][51] Once seen as a resistance movement throughout much of the Arab world,[22] this image upon which the group’s legitimacy rested has been severely damaged due to the sectarian nature of the Syrian Civil War in which it has become embroiled.[37][52][53]

No doubt that the United States is allied with Israel.  No doubt that Israel should fear Iran and Hezbollah. No doubt that Iran/Syria/Russia are fighting against the United States in Syria.  It is a bloody mess, and a travesty. The boundaries are blurred, and that is a fact.

 

On 16 February 1985, Sheik Ibrahim al-Amin issued Hezbollah’s manifesto. Translated excerpts from Hezbollah’s original 1985 manifesto read:

We are the sons of the umma (Muslim community) …

… We are an ummah linked to the Muslims of the whole world by the solid doctrinal and religious connection of Islam, whose message God wanted to be fulfilled by the Seal of the Prophets, i.e., Prophet Muhammad. … As for our culture, it is based on the Holy Quran, the Sunna and the legal rulings of the faqih who is our source of imitation …[30]

 

Hezbollah sounds very much like ISIS to me.

 

In 2010, Iran’s parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani said, “Iran takes pride in Lebanon’s Islamic resistance movement for its steadfast Islamic stance. Hezbollah nurtures the original ideas of Islamic Jihad.” He also instead charged the West with having accused Iran with support of terrorism and said, “The real terrorists are those who provide the Zionist regime with military equipment to bomb the people.”[120]

 

If you think that Hezbollah and Iran wish the United States well – I disagree.  It is what it is. The Iran Deal was a terrible mistake. We pay Iran millions for what?  Oh, yeah, to not go nuclear. I am sure they have given that up.

Who funds Hezbollah?  How far does its tentacles reach?

Money comes from Lebanese business groups, private persons, businessmen, the Lebanese diaspora involved in African diamond exploration, other Islamic groups and countries, and the taxes paid by the Shia Lebanese.[121] Hezbollah says that the main source of its income comes from its own investment portfolios and donations by Muslims, however, Western sources maintain that Hezbollah actually receives most of its financial, training, weapons, explosives, political, diplomatic, and organizational aid from Iran and Syria.[69][82][122] Iran is said to have given $400 million between 1983 and 1989 through donation. The situation has been changed due to economic problems, but Iran still funds humanitarian actions carried on by Hezbollah.[121] According to reports released in February 2010, Hezbollah received $400 million from Iran.[123][124][125] The US estimates that Iran has been giving Hezbollah about US$60–100 million per year in financial assistance.[126] Other estimates are as high as $200 million annually.[citation needed] In 2011 Iran earmarked $7 million to Hezbollah’s activities in the region.[127] Hezbollah has relied also on funding from the Shi’ite Lebanese Diaspora in West Africa, the United States and, most importantly, the Triple Frontier, or tri-border area, along the junction of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil.[128] U.S. law enforcement officials have identified an illegal multimillion-dollar cigarette-smuggling fund raising operation[129] and a drug smuggling operation.[130][131][132] However, Nasrallah has repeatedly denied any links between the South American drug trade and Hezbollah, calling such accusations “propaganda” and attempts “to damage the image of Hezbollah”.[133][134]

Members of the Venezuelan government have been accused of providing financial aid to Hezbollah by the United States Department of the Treasury.[135] According to the testimony of a former Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Roger Noriega, Hugo Chávez’s government gave “indispensable support” to Iran and Hezbollah in the Western Hemisphere.[136] In an article by the conservative think tank the American Enterprise Institute, Noriega explained how two witnesses alleged that Ghazi Atef Nassereddine, a Venezuelan diplomat in Syria, was an operative of Hezbollah who used Venezuelan entities to launder money for Hezbollah with President Nicolas Maduro’s personal approval.[137]

 

Hezbollah has a military branch known as the Jihad Council,[24] one component of which is Al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya (“The Islamic Resistance”), and is the possible sponsor of a number of lesser-known militant groups, some of which may be little more than fronts for Hezbollah itself, including the Organization of the Oppressed, the Revolutionary Justice Organization, the Organization of Right Against Wrong, and Followers of the Prophet Muhammad.[82]

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1559 called for the disarmament of militia[187] with the Taif agreement at the end of the Lebanese civil war. Hezbollah denounced, and protested against, the resolution.[188] The 2006 military conflict with Israel has increased the controversy. Failure to disarm remains a violation of the resolution and agreement as well as subsequent United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701.[189] Since then both Israel and Hezbollah have asserted that the organization has gained in military strength.[33] A Lebanese public opinion poll taken in August 2006 shows that most of the Shia did not believe that Hezbollah should disarm after the 2006 Lebanon war, while the majority of Sunni, Druze and Christians believed that they should.[190] The Lebanese cabinet, under president Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, guidelines state that Hezbollah enjoys the right to “liberate occupied lands.”[191] In 2009, a Hezbollah commander (speaking on condition of anonymity) said, “[W]e have far more rockets and missiles [now] than we did in 2006.”[1

 

In 2012, Hezbollah fighters crossed the border from Lebanon and took over eight villages in the Al-Qusayr District of Syria.[258] On 16–17 February 2013, Syrian opposition groups claimed that Hezbollah, backed by the Syrian military, attacked three neighboring Sunni villages controlled by the Free Syrian Army (FSA). An FSA spokesman said, “Hezbollah’s invasion is the first of its kind in terms of organisation, planning and coordination with the Syrian regime’s air force”. Hezbollah said three Lebanese Shiites, “acting in self-defense”, were killed in the clashes with the FSA.[258][259] Lebanese security sources said that the three were Hezbollah members.[260] In response, the FSA allegedly attacked two Hezbollah positions on 21 February; one in Syria and one in Lebanon. Five days later, it said it destroyed a convoy carrying Hezbollah fighters and Syrian officers to Lebanon, killing all the passengers.[261]

In January 2013, a weapons convoy carrying SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles to Hezbollah was destroyed allegedly by the Israeli Air Force. A nearby research center for chemical weapons was also damaged. A similar attack on weapons destined for Hezbollah occurred in May of the same year.

The leaders of the March 14 alliance and other prominent Lebanese figures called on Hezbollah to end its involvement in Syria and said it is putting Lebanon at risk.[262] Subhi al-Tufayli, Hezbollah’s former leader, said “Hezbollah should not be defending the criminal regime that kills its own people and that has never fired a shot in defense of the Palestinians”. He said “those Hezbollah fighters who are killing children and terrorizing people and destroying houses in Syria will go to hell”.[263] The Consultative Gathering, a group of Shia and Sunni leaders in Baalbek-Hermel, also called on Hezbollah not to “interfere” in Syria. They said, “Opening a front against the Syrian people and dragging Lebanon to war with the Syrian people is very dangerous and will have a negative impact on the relations between the two”.[260] Walid Jumblatt, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party, also called on Hezbollah to end its involvement[262] and claimed that “Hezbollah is fighting inside Syria with orders from Iran”.[264] Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi condemned Hezbollah by saying, “We stand against Hezbollah in its aggression against the Syrian people. There is no space or place for Hezbollah in Syria”.[265] Support for Hezbollah among the Syrian public has weakened since the involvement of Hezbollah and Iran in propping up the Assad regime during the civil war.[266]

 

ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING as this is the link between Hezbollah/Iran and LATIN AMERICA/MS-13.

In 2010, Ahbash and Hezbollah members were involved in a street battle which was perceived to be over parking issues, both groups later met to form a joint compensation fund for the victims of the conflict.[270] Hezbollah was accused of infiltrating South America and having ties with Latin American drug cartels.[271]

The Latin American drug cartels are MS-13 oriented, and Hezbollah has jointed forces with the same MS-13 that President Trump has declared war against.  They are literally taking over the United States. This is a fact.

Hezbollah is Iran.  Hezbollah is connected to Latin American gang members MS-13.

The United Nations Security Council never listed Hezbollah as a terrorist organization under its sanctions list although its members listed it on an individual basis: The United States[313] and France listed the entire group as a terrorist organization although the United Kingdom listed Hezbollah’s military wing as well.[13] Russia has considered Hezbollah a legitimate sociopolitical organization,[314] and the People’s Republic of China remains neutral, and maintains contacts with Hezbollah.[315]

In May 2013, France and Germany released statements that they will join other European countries in calling for a EU-blacklisting of Hezbollah as a terror group.[3

This source goes at length to map and document the gangs connected to Hezbollah – MS-13, and the worldwide activity.

Hezbollah may have started out as a resistance movement against Zionist occupation, but it is now – present day – a mere terrorist and gang committed to the destruction of the United States and Israel.

This is a fact, and if the United States has already been invaded by MS-13 – if President Trump declared war on ISIS in the Middle East and MS-13, who is now all over the US, and we have more coming in right now – right now – if these are the facts, and you agree – you must see the war the United States is presently fighting.

You must see who is threatening us – Iran.  Iran just announced if we pull out of the Iran Deal, we will suffer greatly.

You must see Iran’s ties to Hezbollah, and you must see Hezbollah’s ties to Latin America and to MS-13.

Do the math.

U.S. policymakers who hope that the nuclear deal will help nudge the Islamic revolutionary state into becoming a normal member of the international community seem to forget the past. Policymakers, journalists, and intelligence analysts had all predicted that the era of former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami was a sure sign of the evolution of the revolution. Khatami was replaced by the even more hardline president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It seems clear that despite the American political establishment’s failure to recognize that a state of war already exists between Iran and the United States, the Islamic Republic has no doubt with whom it is at war.

Iran has been at war with the "Great Satan” (USA) since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979. Its opening move was the regime’s seizure of the American Embassy and its taking U.S. diplomats hostage for 444 days in 1979-1980. Technically, the move was an internationally recognized casus belli, legitimate cause for war.

In addition, the Iranian regime’s proxy terrorist group, Hezbollah, engineered the murder of 241 U.S. soldiers, sailors, and marines in Lebanon on October 23, 1983. Iran also sponsored the truck bombing that murdered 19 US Air Force personnel at the Khobar Towers housing complex in Saudi Arabia on June 25, 1996,[1] in an attack allegedly executed by a Bahrain-based cell of Hezbollah, with the cooperation of a Saudi-trained Hezbollah cell.[2[2]p>

Iran has also taken its offensive against the United States to the Western hemisphere. Iran has forged intelligence relationships with several Latin American countries that do not have friendly diplomatic relationships with the U.S., such as Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Bolivia.

Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy terrorist group, has also infiltrated parts of the United States, with sleeper cells in Dearborn, Michigan; Charlotte, North Carolina; and several other locales.[8[8]p>

On a strategic political plane, Iran probably believes that it has been able to drive a wedge between the U.S. and its ally, the “Little Satan,” Israel, over the Obama Administration’s effort to forge a negotiated nuclear treaty with the Iran.[9[9]p>

It seems clear that despite the American political establishment’s failure to recognize that a state of war already exists between Iran and the United States, the Islamic Republic has no doubt with whom it is at war.
