ISLAMIC GENOCIDE

Some of highlighted mass casualties by (political) Islam in course of the last century, from 1915 and on (updated June, 2012)

  • Casualties: 2,700,000 Chritians – (1915-1923) by Ottoman-Empire Muslim Turkey. 750,000 Assyrians, 500,000 Greeks and 1.5 million Armenians.[1]
    Nature: 1.) Ethnic cleansing.[2] 2.) Islamic Jihad.[3][4]
  • Casualties: close to 27,000 In Israel between 1920-2012, at the hands of Arab/Muslims. 24,526 Israelis/Jews killed, 35,356 injured, and 1,967 Arab “Palestinians” killed by other Arab “Palestinians.”[5]
    Nature: roots and motivation: the genocide campaign[6][7][8][9] began (mainly) in the early 1920s by the supreme Islam leader, the pan-Arab Mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, motivated by both: ethnic racism and religious bigotry,[10] which is the root and the ungoing motivation for the violence.[11][12][13] In WW2, the Mufti worked with Adolf Hitler,[14][15] together with his henchman and spokesman Ahmad Shukairy,[16] the first PLO leader, who called in 1967 to ‘throw the Jews into the sea.’[17][18][19]
    There were numerous calls for anti-Israel jihad.[20][21][22]
    Note: most Israeli casualties are innocent non-combatants. Most Arab “Palestinian” casualties are combatants and/or involved in violent attacks.[23] (“The great majority of Arabs killed in the framework of the Israeli-Arab Conflict were killed as a result of wars instigated by the Arabs…”[24]) All the while, humane Israeli soldiers sacrifice their own lives in order to minimize Arab casualties.[25] Not to mention Arab-Islamic intentional routine in causing deaths on their side via human shields.[26] Same goes to Hezbollah tactics.[27] In fact: It stands out, the ‘IDF’s unparalleled record of sparing civilians in counter-terrorism operations.’[28]

Thousands were forcibly converted.”[30][31] by “a fanatical Moslem sect which attempted forcible conversions to Islam.”[32] They were decendants of Arabs who were intending to establish an Islamic regime.[33] The Moplahs who “regarded all non-Muslims as infidels, and who had been influenced by the Khilafat movement, declared two independent Muslim kingdoms. They then attacked both Europeans and Hindus.”[34]They called for a Holy war against Britain, as a “duty of Mahomedans to join in a Jehad, or holy war,”[35] and against Hindus.[36] “The Khilafat Muslim leaders.. sent telegrams to Moplah rebels extolling them as heroes fighting for the glory of their religion.”[37]
  • Casualties: 6,000 Assyrians, in 1933, Simele, Iraq.[38] It was seen as “a Muslim jihad, holy war, waged against a small Christian community.”[39] Indeed, “All Arab classes were called by the Government organs, such as newspapers and others, to join in the Holy War. Non-compliance mean treachery.”[40]

    2.) The AIAI (al-Ittihad al-Islamiyya) was the main anti-Barre force, though it was known to be very Islamist, it was backed by Somalis because of its strong anti-Barre image. After Barre’s fall, the AIAI turned to a jihad against Ethiopia, it was aided by Saudis. “The Ethiopian military far overpowered AIAI destroying the organization’s political and military infrastructures. The defeat led to the disbandment of al-Ittihad al-Islamiyya in January 1997. After AIAI dissolved, many of its former members fled to Mogadishu and joined up with the Islamic Courts movement that was beginning to gain momentum there.”[131]
    3.) Ruthless Sunni warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid (Aideed) – wanted Somalia governed by “Islamic princpiles.”[132] He was becoming increasingly ‘Islamist’ in nature. especially since Islamic Mujahiddin were fighting for him.[133]

    7.) The ‘Union of Islamic Courts’ (IUC) – “a system of clan-based sharia courts that fought to gain control of Mogadishu through their militias.”[140] It contains some radical elements, with some linked to al-Qaeda.[141] It has since, became more and more powerful, planning secretly for a great ‘Islamic Republic.’[142]
    Some see the ICU, like the Taliban, in politics of ‘radical Islamism.’[143] Note: Civil war also exposed deep racism from Afro-Arabs against natives. Arabs ‘always run the show.’[144]

  • Casualties: 16,000[174]Syria 2011-2012, or at least over 15,000[175] or at least over 13,000[176] by Syrian forces with Iranian[177][178][179] and Hezbollah active participation[180][181][182]
    Nature: Alawite Islamic apartheid,[183] Sunni Vs Alawi ‘religious hatred.’[184][185][186][187][188][189] It also serves as a “Battleground Between Sunnis and Shiites.”[190]

ISLAMISTS’ GENOCIDE IN SOMALIA – so far – 30,000 CHILDREN DEAD!

September 6, 2011

ISLAMISTS’ GENOCIDE IN SOMALIA – 30,000 CHILDREN DEAD! Islamists refuse [Western] aid to the famine in Somalia. Thousands perish. Many flee.



Al shabaab refuses aid agencies to help the needy Somalis – Shabelle [Jan 12, 2011] MOGADISHU (Sh. M. Network) – Somalia’s Al shabaab movement refused international and local aid agencies to reach droughts affected areas in southen and central Somalia to help the needy Somalis, an Al shabaab official said on Wednesday. Sheikh Suldan Mohammed Ala Mohammed, an Al shabaab official, has told local Mogadishu radios that they will never allow aid agencies to operate in the regions under their control. Ala Mohammed charged those aid agencies with having hidden agendas in which they want to propagate and promulgate the Christianity, adding that they also want to launch brain wash attacks against ordinary people of Somalia.

He went on to say that selling and consumption of drugs to be spread in all Somali regions by what he called Christian relief agencies. He pointed they would also like to confront among Somalis. The statement of that official comes as Al shabaab ahs already banned more than 20 relief organizations from operating in south-central Somalia. Relief agencies serving inside Somalia say aid to millions of Somalis is hampered by the danger that aid workers face and a lack of respect for international humanitarian law by parties to the conflict.

Daily Monitor: – World | Al-shabaab opposes banned groups from returning to Somalia By Abdulkadir Khalif Posted Saturday, July 23 2011 at 00:00 Radical Somali Islamist group al-Shabaab has said organisations already banned in the war-torn country will not be allowed back. Al-Shabaab spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamoud Raghe alias Sheikh Ali Dhere, said the said organisations were not welcome to Somali, currently facing severe humanitarian crisis. “The organisations that we banned cannot come back,” the spokesman stated Thursday evening. “Such entities are not included among those now invited to provide humanitarian aid,” he added, without naming the affected organisations. Sheikh Ali Dhere was reacting to a report by the United Nations on Wednesday that famine had hit two parts of rebel-held Somalia, due to a severe drought affecting more than 10 million people in the Horn of Africa.

Islamist group in Somalia bans samosas after deciding they’re too Western..’ By Stewart Maclean Last updated at 3:28 PM on 26th July 2011 Somalia’s al-Shabaab group has banned samosas after ruling the popular snacks are ‘offensive’ and too Christian.

Militant Islamist fighters last week used vehicles mounted with loudspeakers to announce the bizarre ruling across the regions of the war-torn country it controls. The extremist group has offered no official explanation for the ban on the triangular snacks, which are commonly cooked up and served across the Horn of Africa… The bizarre ban comes just days after militants linked to Al-Qaida in Somalia refused to let some aid workers into the country as tens of thousands suffered in the nation’s massive famine. Aid groups including the UN Food Programme say they were not given permission by militants to provide aid in the country, where it has been warned that 800,000 children could die from starvation.

BBC News – Somali Islamists maintain aid ban and deny famine – Jul 22, 2011 – Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamists have denied lifting their ban on some Western aid agencies and say UN reports of famine are “sheer propaganda”. The UN on Wednesday said that parts of Somalia were suffering a famine after the worst drought in 60 years. A spokesman for al-Shabab, which has ties to al-Qaeda and controls much of the country, accused the banned groups of being political.

But the UN insists famine exists and it will continue its aid efforts. Most Western aid agencies quit Somalia in 2009 following al-Shabab’s threats, though some say they have managed to continue operating through local partners. Some 10 million people are said to need food aid across East Africa but Somalia is by far the worst-affected country, as there is no national government to co-ordinate aid after two decades of fighting. Thousands of people are fleeing areas under al-Shabab control to camps set up in areas of the capital controlled by the weak interim government, which is battling the Islamist insurgents. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) was one of those banned. [Many Somali mothers have already seen their children die in the drought]

Al-Qaeda Affiliate, not Famine, is Responsible for Somalian Genocide Townhall Columnists Rachel Alexander 9/5/2011 Somalia is in the midst of a famine, suffering from the worst drought in 60 years. 29,000 Somali children have died within the past three months, and 100,000 Somalis are expected to die in the next few weeks. The al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabab has destroyed the country, taking over much of the southern part of the country where it has imposed a strict version of Sharia law. The Taliban-like organization refuses to allow humanitarian organizations associated with the West to provide aid to the starving people. Al-Shabab expelled the U.N.’s World Food Programme, which had provided the bulk of the aid, from much of the country in January 2010, accusing it of being a U.S. proxy. Incredulously, some are blaming the U.S. for the famine, not al-Shabab.

In Somalia – Jihad Uber Alles

Posted by David Meir-Levi

on Aug 17th, 2011 The drought in the Horn of Africa that began in 2009 is the worst in 60 years. But humanitarian aid from the UN, the USA and other countries has prevented mass starvation in the nations of that region, except one. In Somalia that drought soon turned into a famine of unprecedented proportions. To date almost 30,000 children under the age of 5 have died of starvation, according to U.S. estimates. The UN fears that at least 640,000 Somali children are acutely malnourished: a statistic that suggests the death toll of small children could rise to as many as 800,000! More than one million Somalis have fled to Ethiopia and Kenya, where makeshift refugee camps house hundreds of thousands.[1]

One might expect that all Somali leaders and political parties would join forces to help their people survive this enormous tragedy; but one would be wrong. The Somali Muslim terrorists known as al-Shabaab have worked for the past two years to prevent any foreign aid from reaching their Muslim Somali co-religionists, even as tens of thousands of Somali Muslim children die of starvation and hundreds of thousands of starving Muslim families flee al-Shabaab’s reach to find food and water in nearby Kenya and Ethiopia. Harakat ash-Shabaab al-Mujahideen (the “Organization of the Youth Jihad Fighters”), or al-Shabaab (“the lads” or “the youths” in Arabic) for short, is a group of Islamist terrorist jihadis fighting to overthrow the Muslim government of Somalia in order to replace it with a government committed to a more extreme form of Islam and to Shari’a law. The group now controls large swathes of southern Somalia. Its leaders claim that they are waging war against the “enemies of Islam” which includes the present Somali government. Al-Shabaab is an offshoot of Hizbul Islam (“The Islamic Party”), formed to fight the Somali government of President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed.

In December, 2010 Hizbul Islam merged with al-Shabaab to better implement jihad against President Ahmed and his government. Al-Shabaab has been designated a terrorist organization by several western governments. Al-Shabaab leaders formerly denied any connection with el-Qaeda, but early in 2010 they acknowledged that they worked with el-Qaeda forces in Pakistan and Yemen for training and deployment. The U.N. and the USA blame al-Shabaab for the famine, because its terrorist forces, under el-Qaeda influence, have created the single greatest obstacle to humanitarian assistance in Somalia. Thanks to al-Shabaab, the rate of malnutrition in southern Somalia is the highest in the world, approaching half the population, according to CNN. In addition to denying aid workers access to the regions where the drought and famine rage, al-Shabaab terrorists force local Somali Muslim humanitarian organizations to pay “taxes” (aka bribes) in order to be able to funnel food and other supplies to the devastated areas. They demand bribes from U.N. and from aid agency officials to allow them to work in areas under al-Shabaab control. In some cases, al-Shabaab terrorists have burned food stocks and medicine, and have kidnapped or killed charity workers, when bribes were not paid. These “taxes” can be as high as $10,000 for access to the areas al-Shabaab controls.

Then there are the “registration fees” of another $10,000, and payments of $6,000 every six months, as well as 20 percent of the value of all food and other supplies and 10 percent on all vehicles, as a form of “import duties.” Their terrorism pays well; but their extorted wealth and their Islamic jihad agenda come at the expense of the lives of hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions, of their own people. A gut-wrenching and tragic example of this kind of Islamofascist tyranny is reported in a recent Newsweek magazine interview[2] with a local Somali doctor. Dr. Hawa Abdi is an obstetrician and gynecologist running a clinic near Mogadishu since 1983. Today her medical compound holds 90,000 people, mostly women and children, all homeless refugees fleeing al-Shabaab and the famine. Al-Shabaab’s predecessor, the terrorist group Hizbul Islam, invaded her hospital and camp in 2010 in order to shut her down and take over her property and the hospital, because she is a woman and “…women are not allowed to shoulder any responsibility and authority.”[3] She refused even though they threatened to shoot her. They relented and she kept her medical compound and back-yard refugee camp running. This year however, al-Shabaab leaders, now emboldened by their merger with Hizbul Islam, attacked her hospital and home and compound (refuge to 90,000 homeless starving Somali Muslims!) with artillery and automatic weapons, in retaliation for her having been candid in a BBC radio interview about the damage that al-Shabaab has done in Somalia. They targetted the maternity and surgical wards and the pediatric malnutrition center. Hundreds died and thousands more fled, despite their need for medical care, only to die in the Somali desert. This vengeful cruelty becomes utterly unimaginable when one learns that some of these al-Shebaab attackers have their own wives and mothers living as refugees in Dr. Abdi’s compound.[4] Why does al-Shabaab wreck this horrific inhuman brutality against their own Muslim Somali people? As al-Shabaab spokespersons explain it, alien non-Muslim groups cannot be permitted to enter Somalia because they might host spies, or worse, promote an un-Islamic way of life among the Somali Muslims. According to some al-Shabaab representatives, the U.N.’s declaration of famine in parts of Somalia is politically motivated and “pure propaganda;” and attacks on humanitarian workers and the restrictions against the UN and other groups bringing food to starving Somalis are merely self-defense against foreign non-Muslim influences that might corrupt the pure Islamic way of life for Somali Muslims. Al-Shabaab leaders insist that there is no famine.

The claims of famine are a hoax, they say, perpetrated by Christians who have an anti-Muslim strategy to transport Somali Muslims abroad, especially into Christian countries like Ethiopia and Kenya, “…so that their faith can be destroyed and they could be staff and soldiers for the Christians.” Meanwhile, 30,000 children have died, hundreds of thousands more are malnourished, half-a-million Somali adults are starving, and 1.5 million are homeless; but Somali Islam is kept pure and unsullied by kafir influences. This is conspiracy theory gone ballistic, psychotic mass murder of these terrorists’ own people in order to advance their Muslim jihadist agenda. When the lives of hundreds of thousands of their own Muslim kin mean nothing compared to improving the chances of an al-Shabaab jihad victory in Somalia, we must acknowledge that we are dealing with psychopathic mass murder: Jihad uber Alles. The good news is that Somali government forces have driven al-Shabaab from Somalia’s capitol city, Mogadishu, and have opened the port and roads for UN and USAID supplies and aid workers, at least in the capitol city. Moreover, al-Shabaab may have been weakened both by the government forces’ liberation of Mogadishu and by the blowback of discontent from millions of starving or near-starving Somalis who correctly see al-Shabaab as the cause of their plight. So al-Shebaab’s totalitarian ruthless inhumane treatment of its own Muslim people may now backfire as Somalis suffer mass starvation and hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by al-Shebaab’s blockade and attacks on hospitals and aid workers. Is this a localized Somali tragedy, or should al-Shabaab’s unspeakable cruelty concern the USA?

U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY) has answered that question. On July 27, Rep. King, Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, convened a Homeland Security meeting in Washington D.C., entitled “Al Shabaab: Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland.” He said: “Some argue that al-Shabaab is only a Somali problem…(but)…that kind of thinking is a glaring example of what the 9/11 Commission called a failure of imagination.” In his presentation, Rep. King documented that Al-Shabaab operatives in the USA and Canada are engaged in an ongoing successful effort to recruit and radicalize young Muslim Somali Americans for jihad. These young Somali Americans are trained by el-Qaeda in Pakistan, and have been deployed in Yemen, Afghanisan, and Somalia. Some of the recruits who joined Al-Shabaab’s terror cadres in Somalia have been killed in the fighting there, and three became suicide bombers. One who quickly rose to the rank of commander in al-Shabaab in Somalia, Mr. Omar Hammami, was raised a Baptist in Alabama! Al-Shabaab in the USA has been far more successful in recruiting Somali American citizens to their terror ranks than has el-Qaeda. Somali Al-Shabaab emissaries recruit actively in mosques in Somali communities all over the USA, with no opposition from local non-Somali imams (though lack of opposition may be out of fear rather than out of support for the al-Shabaab jihad). Federal prosecutions for funding terrorism and recruiting for terrorist groups are the most numerous for Somali-American Muslims than for other Muslim Americans working for other terror organizations. According to Rep. King, these Somali-American Muslim recruits pose a serious threat of home-grown terrorism. “…this threat is real, and …. al-Shabaab leaders’ public calls for attacks against America — including in retaliation for killing bin Laden — must be taken seriously. With a large group of Muslim-Americans willing to die as “martyrs,” and a strong operational partnership with al-Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and in Yemen, al-Shabaab now has more capability than ever to strike the U.S. homeland.” We must learn from our 9/11 “failure of imagination” and pay close attention to Rep. King’s admonitions. The Somali al-Shabaab display utterly inhuman ruthlessness as they callously condemn hundreds of thousands of their own to death by starvation, in the name of Allah and jihad. Home-grown Somali-American jihadists, trained by al-Qaeda and battle hardened in Somalia and elsewhere, can be expected to treat American kafiroon no less harshly. We must connect the dots now, and take pre-emptive defensive action, before al-Shabaab or their ilk perpetrate another 9/11. Notes: [1] For more details cf.

Obama’s inhuman “humanitarian” doctrine

March 30, 2011

Obama’s inhuman “humanitarian” doctrine

Obama is active in Libya, spending Billions of dollars, he said it’s a “humanitarian” mission to “protect civilians.”
Is Obama really “concerned” about civilian casualties???

  • When protesters against the oppressive totalitarian Islamic-apartheid regime of Iran were slaughtered in the streets. Obama said: “We don’t intervene.” At a time when the Islamic Republic pushes bloodshed (directly or via its Hezbollah arm) in: Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Israel, Somalia, Afghanistan, etc.
  • In the Ivory Coast people are dying. “Moral” Obama couldn’t find oil there, apparently.
  • In the Sudan genocide, 2,500,000 already died in previous years by Khartoum. Lately, despite the cessation of the South, Omar al-Bashir continues crimes against Southerners. But Obama doesn’t act when the Arab is the aggressor, unless he has the Arab league behind him. The Arab league always supported the Arab supremacist, apartheid against non-Arabs and African-slavery regime of al-Bashir.
  • When Palestinian-Arab Hamas regime fires from densely populated areas, Jihadists slash babies’ throats and blow up buses with the intent to commit mass massacres among civilians, incited by the “moderate” PA regime’s hate propaganda (who dehumanizes Jews, glorifies jihadism, advocates anti-Christian, anti-Jewish apartheid and ethnic cleansing of all Jews in the area) to the cheers of the Arab main street. Obama is busy blaming the victim, condemning Israel’s so-called “settlements.” As if rebuilding part of a historic land is the issue and not targeting Jews by bloodthirsty Arab-Islamic elements and the incitement, venomous atmosphere in general Arab-Palestine.
  • When ‘who-knows-how-many’ are murdered in the streets of the ‘prison State’ Syria [the anti-Kurdish racist-Arab regime] and its involvement in arming bloody Hezbollah butchers is evident. Obama practices “talk is cheap.”

Conclusion, Obama’s “doctrine” is anti-humanitarian pro-Islamism.

December 7, 1950 – Jihad Watch

Dec 7, 2010

Nine years after Pearl Harbor, World War II had been over for five years. The nation was strong and confident in the face of the Cold War threat from the Soviets, and was in the process of magnanimously helping Germany and Japan rebuild.

Nine years after 9/11, and we are barely even at square one. Consider, by way of comparison, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s speech to Congress the day after the Pearl Harbor attacks and the U.S. in the age of Barack Hussein Obama. The similarities — and the differences — are striking.

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Speech to the U.S. Congress on December 8th, 1941 (as delivered)

Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, of the House of Representatives:

Yesterday, December 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

And on September 11, 2001 — a date which will likewise live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the global Islamic jihad.

The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. […]

The United States was at peace with the warriors of Islam, and considers itself to be at peace with them still, and has undertaken numerous efforts to mollify Muslims and convince them that it has no quarrel with Islam or with Muslims at all.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace. […]

It will be recorded that the doctrines of jihad in Islam and the statements of jihad terrorists worldwide make it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned as a jihad attack. During the ensuing nine years, Islamic spokesmen have deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.

Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

This morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The People of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

Islamic jihad forces are currently operating in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, Nigeria, Chechnya, and elsewhere. The jihadists have, therefore, undertaken an offensive extending throughout the world. The facts of 9/11 and today speak for themselves. Yet the People of the United States largely remain unequipped to form their opinions and understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation, for neither government nor media is telling them the truth about the nature of the threat.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. […]

Today the Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy involves people who hold exactly the same belief-system as that held by those who attacked us on 9/11 in vital measures taken for our defense.

And not even nine years after 9/11 does our nation as a whole fully understand the character of the onslaught against us.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounding determination of our People – we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941 a state of War has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounding determination of our People – we will gain the inevitable triumph – so help us God.

But Congress has declared no state of War, and nine years after the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Islamic jihadists on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, no one is even sure who or what we are fighting.

Except, that is, our jihadist enemies themselves. They know full well who they are and what they are about. And the fog of deception is one of their foremost and most effective weapons in this country.

REAGAN

“The Reagan presidency: an oral history of the era”, Deborah Hart Strober, Gerald S. Strober, p. 189, 2003 (631 pages)
President Reagan and Israel Shimon Peres Israel was one of those issues about which he had a very clear opinion; he was unshakable — he was a staunch supporter. From that point of view, he belonged to the good people of this world.

As Reagan had entered office with the reputation of being very pro- Israeli and cynical about the Arab nations, his staunch support for the AWACS sale was surprising.

Reagan: A Staunch Friend of Israel

Jon E. Dougherty, NewsMax.com
Wednesday, June 9, 2004

While most American leaders over the past several decades have been supporters of Israel, the lone democracy in the Middle East, few were better friends of the Jewish state than Ronald Reagan.

The late president opened communications, security and economic links to Israel – many of which still exist today – that resulted in the close, symbiotic relationship between Washington and Jerusalem, according to U.S. and Israel political analysts and experts.

Also, Reagan shared a spiritual bond with Israel that has been compared with President Bush’s understanding of the strategic, historic and biblical role of Israel, say experts.

“It seems that presidents like Reagan and Bush who have a foundation in the Bible have a better understanding of what Israel’s role is in the world,” said Helen Freedman, the executive director of American For a Safe Israel [AFSI], based in New York City.

“Israel is not meant to be a nation like all the other nations,” she told NewsMax. “It’s not meant to be absorbed into the Middle East or the Commonwealth of Nations. It is a nation that represents the biblical promise – the Promised Land, the chosen people, and its obligation to be a light unto the nations.”

Reagan, Freedman said, was a president “we had heard woke up every morning and asked to do God’s will – not his will, but God’s will. We believe President Bush is somewhat on that track also.”



Israel Legacy



In many respects, experts said Reagan was the best U.S. friend Israel has had since its founding in 1948.

Among his many accomplishments was his successful efforts to get the Soviet Union to allow persecuted Russian Jews to emigrate to the Jewish state. Reagan’s policies eventually led to a tidal wave of immigrants for Israel.



“There are a number of things President Reagan did that are monumental in their importance to U.S.-Israel relationship,” said Josh Block, a spokesman for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee [AIPAC] in Washington, D.C.

Among them:

  • Reagan was instrumental in the enhancement of the U.S.-Israel Strategic Cooperation Agreement, which resulted in the establishment of the Joint Political-Military Group [JPMG], a Pentagon program which oversees joint intelligence and military ventures between both nations.

  • The nation’s 40th president oversaw the creation of the Joint Security Assistance Planning Group [JSAP] in April 1988, a mechanism by which both countries review Israel’s security needs in light of current threat assessments and U.S. budgetary demands. This forum is enormously important for deciding a wide array of bilateral strategic interests, said AIPAC.

  • A strategic relationship that has led to advances for both countries in their battles against terrorism.

  • The signing of an American-Israel free trade agreement, which allowed Israeli companies to compete equally with European companies. Since 1985, trade between the two countries has increased 400 percent and topped $20 billion last year (Israel is the United States’ 21st largest trading partner). This agreement served as a model for other, similar agreements, including the North America Free Trade Agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    When he signed the agreement, Reagan said, “I believe this new economic relationship with our friends in Israel will further our historic friendship, strengthen both our economies, and provide for new opportunities between our peoples for communication and commerce.”

    Block said in 1985 and 1986, when the Israeli economy was experiencing inflation rates as high as 445 percent, Reagan approved $1.5 billion in Israeli assistance, which was paid in two installments — one each year.

    “It was an extraordinarily important effort to help Israel make it through their economic crisis,” he said.



    Bolstering Aid Packages



    Prior to the Reagan presidency, the U.S. provided financial backing and assistance to Israel via a collection of loans and grants.

    But after he took office, the loans and grants evolved into the “very important economic and military aid” the U.S. currently and regularly provides Jerusalem, America’s only democratic ally in the Middle East.

    “Israel has received more direct aid from the United States since World War II than any other country,” but the amounts during the first half of that time period “were relatively small,” writes Mitchell Bard, for the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise.

    “Starting with fiscal year 1987, Israel annually received $1.2 billion in all grant economic aid and $1.8 billion in all grant military assistance,” Bard wrote. But, he added, “In 1998, Israel offered to voluntarily reduce its dependence on U.S. economic aid. According to an agreement reached with the Clinton Administration and Congress, the $1.2 billion economic aid package will be reduced by $120 million each year so that it will be phased out in ten years.”

    Still, half those savings ($60 million) will be added to Israel’s military aid package.



    Commonsense Friend



    Reagan seemed to be at ease in his dealings with Israel, partly because experts believe he knew and understood the importance of a strong Jewish state in the region.

    “He had some real good commonsense approaches” to U.S. relations with Israel, said Freedman, of AFSI. “He understood Jerusalem could not be divided, and that there cannot be a Palestinian state” because the latter “would spell the end of Israel,” she said.

    Block said Reagan signed a strategic letter of understanding in 1982 with the Israeli administration of Prime Minister Menachem Begin, which is still used by both governments today.

    Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz, a leading New York rabbi, told NewsMax that Reagan “was a friend of Israel from the time the country was founded, and he was very consistent.”

    Pomerantz said while Bush understands that Israel “lives under the kind of terrorism that struck the U.S. on September 11, 2001,” he also agreed that Reagan saw early the terror threat to both countries as well, especially after Iranian-backed terrorists bombed a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1983, killing 241 Marines.

    “Reagan recognized Israel as an actual ally during the Cold War,” he said, “which he was most responsible for winning.”

    Reagan may have used Israel to help him defeat the Evil Empire. But he had a deep affinity for the only other nation to claim a Providential founding.

    “In Israel, free men and women are every day demonstrating the power of courage and faith,” Reagan once remarked. “Back in 1948 when Israel was founded, pundits claimed the new country could never survive. Today, no one questions that. Israel is a land of stability and democracy in a region of tyranny and unrest.”

    CARTER

    While Jimmy Carter, called the worst president in 20th century, simply lost it, lost the America’s trust in him, from the New York Times of Jan. 21, 981: Reagan Takes Oath as 40th President; Promises an ’Era of National Renewal’–Minutes Later, 52 U.S. Hostages In Iran Fly to Freedom After 444-Day Ordeal
    .

    Infamous Carter, as in causing [indirectly] the fascist ‘Islamic revolution’ that endangers the world today with Hezbollah Mahdi thugs (not only reacking havoc in Lebanon and Israel but) in major (Islamic) hot spots, including in: Somalia, Iraq (more ), Afghanistan, and playing a a dangerous game in Latin America. Arming itself with nuclear arms capabale of reaching Europe and calling genocide on the Jews in Israel.
    the Ex-President For Sale, who -with Arab oil lobby’s money- published his venemous anti-Israel hate book, this, despite his own admission on CNN: “I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.”

    OBAMA?

    So far, Obama has cowed to Islamic leaders, bowed to Arab Muslim tyrants, “apologized” for America’s mistakes, toured the world, often as an embarrased American… worst, (unlike the crystal clarity that of Reagan’s) he can’t even seem to define the Islamic militant threat upon the world.

    Conclusion

    To Prez. Obama, your actions will determine if you will become a ‘Reagan’ or a ‘Carter’ in America’s hearts, empty spinning “words” alone simply won’t do it.

    Hezbollah’s criminal activities streches from “blood diamonds” in Africa to Latin Amerca’s drug trafficking.

    I’d say that attacking: US, France, Kuwait, Britain, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Lebanon, Egypt; its global criminal financial activities; its oppression and constant crimes against humanity on its own -millions of Iranian- citizens, and even moreso on its minorities; threatening ‘Death to US’ – the “big Satan;” planning a nuclear attack for genocide on 6,000,000 Jews in Israel (with an introduction of denying the Holocaust); threatening its immediate neighbours, Europe; Ahmadinejad’s dreaming of becoming the “Mahdi” to dominate the world under a theocratic Islamic totalitarian system run by the mullahs, constitute a serious threat, Don’t you?

    10 Highlighted problems with mainstream Islam

    September 20, 2010

    10 Highlighted problems with mainstream Islam

    [clarity and concerns are not “bigotry”]

    1) DEHUMANIZATION

    Apes and pigs, the dehumanization of non-Muslims, Christians as pigs and Jews as apes.[1][2][3][4][5] (Or as some Islamic cleric of the ‘Bali bombing’ called non-Muslims: “worms, snakes and maggots.”[6][7]

    2) TERRORISM

    Had the mainstream Islam really eject its radicals, the Jihadists wouldn’t have the motivation to go on, Why else is there Islamic terrorism still active in so many parts of the world? The half-way condemnation, and almost always accompanied by a “but”, but the west does this or that argument is still on – after 9 Years from the 9/11 Islamic massacre in 2001.[8][9]

    3) SHARIA: OPPRESSION AND ANNIHILATING THE INFIDEL

    The campaign, hidden or open for implementation for Sharia law. In Sharia, besides the legal basis for the war against the infidel,[10] women are subjucated, which explaines how top Islamic cleric of Australia called non-Muslim women plain “meat.”[11]

    4) HONOR KILLING

    One of the great imports from the Islamic culture.[12][13]5) JIHAD & INTIMIDATIONS BY “MODERATES”The so called moderate Muslim leaders that the best they can do is intimidate the west to give in to their Islamic expansion, or else… the radicals will be unleashed.[14][15] The hidden Jihad.

    6) SELF-MADE VICTIMHODD

    The wide sympathy and support in mainstream Islam to the Palestinian,[16][17][18][19][20] Hezbollah,[21] Taliban,[22] Al Qeada in Iraq tactics of using civilians (indirect murder of their own people) so that the west looks bad. (All of the above causalties are seen by mainstream Islam as nothing else but the ‘victims of the west’).

    7) ISLAMIC APARTHEID / BIGOTRY

    With all the ‘criticism” of the west, the Islamic world is still practicing Apartheid (in the real sense), religious and gender wise.[23][24][25][26] In the intolerant Muslim world all non-Muslims are either at an inferior status or worse. The Christian minority has dwindeled in Lebanon[27] and among the Jordanian / Palestinian Arabs[28][29][30][31][32] while Muslim population have increased, persection. Islamic bigotry’s also at the roots of conflicts, including in the Sudan[33][34] and in Israel/Palestine[35] (in the intolerant Arab – Islamic world[36][37] against the “other”[38]).

    8)}WORLD DOMINATION – GOAL

    The open or silent goal by Jihadists, yet backed by so many in mainstream Islam, towards a Caliphate – a theocratic Islamic dictatorship based on the Sharia (religious Islamic law).[39][40][41][42][43][44]

    9) A TOTALITARIAN WORLD

    The Arab-Islamic world is totalitarian[45][46][47][48] – oppressive, even Lebanon that is supposedly the real democracy in that world, the terror Islamic group Hezbollah has immense power. (Iraq is yet to bee seen). Minorities are in even worse shape.

    10) MOST CONFLICTS ALL OVER THE GLOBE ARE BY MUSLIMS

    Draw a map and point to the conflicts,[49] then try to detach most of it from Muslims. Here’s a partial list: Russia. Somalia. Sudan. Nigeria. Lebanon. Israel. Iraq. Afghanistan. Pakistan. India. Kashmir. Thailand. Philippines. China.

    Hezbollah / Islamic Iran in Latin America

    June 10, 2010

    Brazil objects sanctions – Islamic Iran / Hezbollah’s roots in Brazil (& Latin America)

    Quote:
    UN approves Iran sanctions [9 Jun 2010] … UN approves Iran sanctions. Twelve Security Council members endorse fourth round of sanctions against Tehran; Turkey and Brazil vote against proposal, Lebanon abstains; decision marks compromise between US demands, Russia’s and China’s conditions…

    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3902831,00.html

    Turkey? We all know that the current Islamic party’s Mr. Erdogan was looking for an excuse to go against Israel, especially since the Gaza operation, the Flotilla Jihad boat incident only helped him in his anti-Israelism campaign.

    Quote:
    Analysis: Erdogan’s harsh Israel rhetoric tests …2 Jun 2010 … The AKP emerged the leading party in local elections last year with 39 percent of the vote, … "Turkey is moving closer to an Islamic perspective with this government," …

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/06/02/analysis-erdogans-harsh-israel-rhetoric-tests-turkeys-role-bridge-east-west/

    Turkey is calling for a jihad against Israel | Joshua Teitelbaum …8 Jun 2010 … Turkey….. A party that has sunni Islamic roots…

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/jun/08/turkey-jihad-israel-flotilla

    The surprise might have been that Brazil was so involved and voicing against the sanctions.

    The interesting part was that Lebanon, the home of Iran’s Hezbollah abstained while Brazil objected, Ever thought that Brazil would be more Islamic-appeaser than Russia and China, or worse, being on the opposite side of those nations on a radical-Islam’s issue?

    We have to keep in mind that Arabs in Brazil have a "representation" of over 1.5 Million, mostly from Syria and Lebanon.

    We all know how Hezbollah is financed, by illegal snuggling, drug trafficking (http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/67377) and blood diamonds… and also through donations by Lebanese merchants in Latin America and in Africa. (http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/hizballah.htm)

    Hence, from the fallout in the UN you can see the power of Iran / Hezbollah in Brazil, far greater than in Lebanon.

    One expression of affinity with the Islamic world in recent years, came out in the form of a soap-opera (telenovela) called ‘O Clone,’ the Clone, which ran for a long time.

    Quote:
    (WSJ) RIO DE JANEIRO — As the world turns — possibly toward a clash with Islam — a prime-time soap opera on Brazil’s most popular channel has people hooked on the troubled romance between a Muslim woman and a Catholic man. Soon, people in the U.S. will have the chance to get addicted, too….

    ‘O Clone,’ a Brazilian soap opera, stars a Muslim woman named Jade… The telenovela unfolds in Brazil and Morocco … (oclone.net/forum/index.php?tid=61&tpg=1)

    Major Arab population in Latin America [many are in the textile, perfume business, and other]:

    * Brazil (Rio, more than Sao Paolo, though the region Bras (for instance) is very heavy occupied by Arab merchants).

    * Honduras.

    * Chile.

    * Haiti. (Syrian Arabs, though the Haitians have seen little or nothing in aid from them…)

    Border areas:

    * TBA, Tri Border Area of Paraguay – Brazil – Argentina (famous Hezbollah base).

    * Venezuela, many Arabs have financed Hugo Chavez.

    * Colombia (especially in the region bordering with Venezuela).

    * Between Panama (there was a Hezbollah linked 1994 bombing of an airline in Panama) & Costa Rica (some Hezbollah "activists" have used the central America line to enter the States (A.K.A. ‘Panama-CostaRica-Nicaragua-Honduras-ElSalvador-Guatemala-Mexico-US’, for instance, some Iranian Hezbollah tried to get into Costa Rica with Venezuelan passports… and we all know about Chavez’s passports issuing for Iranians, even Somalis have been caught in Panama’s Darien last year, trying to sneak in the area, in another time, some Somalis have been seen wondering-about in Tapachula – Mexico, P.S. Somali terrorists Islamists al-Shabab are allied with Hezbollah).

    Note, though a large portion is Christian, yet:

    A- Muslims still have a stronghold among the overall Arab population, (especially when they seek to come out as "Arab heroes." evoking Arab longing/tradition of Salahdin, keep that picture in mind and understand a Lebanese Arab’s willingness to support Hezbollah when approached…) B- Some "christians" care more about supporting Muslim issues than for any Christians anywhere, some have called them "IslamoChristians."

    This is not to say that some Arab Christians are not real, honest and pro west.

    Iran’s, Syria-backed Global Arab-Islamic Terrorists: The Hezbollah

    May 24, 2010

    Contents

    Iranian, Syrian Backed: Arab Islamic Hezbollah Global Terrorists

    Huzbollah is a radical Shi’a Muslim organization fighting against Israel and “western imperialism” in Lebanon, and has advocated since its beginning (1982) for an Islamic State, Tehran style[1]. The group does not recognize the legitimacy of the State of Israel. Hezbollah refers to itself with multiple titles including the “Organization of the Oppressed on Earth” and the “Revolutionary Justice Organization.” Its main goal is the establishment of an Islamic government across the Arab world that will “liberate” Jerusalem and the entire area of the present-day State of Israel.

    It is financed and armed by Iran and enjoys full backing from Syria. Hezbollah was founded with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

    Syria backs Hizballah morally and has also supplied it with money and arms. In return, Hizballah protects Syria’s political and military interests in Lebanon. [2][3]

    The two major leaders of Hezbollah are Secretary General Sheikh Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the organization’s spiritual chief, Sheikh Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah, both named “specially designated global terrorists” by the U.S. government. [4]

    It was founded and continued, and still is marked by violence, locally and worldwide, though, recently, it tries to portray itself as a mere “political” party. It has been said that: “The very year Hezbollah was founded it became the most lethal terrorist organization in Lebanon” & “neither had ever managed to spill so much blood in a single incident.” [5]

    Funding

    Dirty Money, Blood Money

    Criminal funding

    The Lebanese Shiite Terrorist Organization has been highlighted as a profile in “Crime and Terrorism” – Hezbollah’s Criminal activity is widely in Lebanon and worldwide [6], or what researches call: “various criminal enterprises to raise funds for Hezbollah.” [7] Among the illegal, criminal methods of the Islamic group is wide fraud, drug trafficking, credit card fraud & cigarette smuggling, it has been known that “Cigarette Smuggling Funds Terrorism.” [8] [9] In a 2009 report on “Hezbollah: narco-Islamism Middle East Strategy at Harvard” researchers have found that: ‘more than any other Islamist group, Hezbollah has a long record of engaging in criminal activity to support its activities.’ [10] [11]

    Latin America

    The ‘Hezbollah’s global finance network’ includes “The Triple Frontier” (in South America) – “Argentina, Brasil & Paraguay.” [12], [13]

    There’s an extensive report on “Hezbollah and the Drug Trade in South America” – Hezbollah is active in the drug trade in Colombia, a web of criminality that extends from Lebanon to Africa to South America. [14]

    Douglas Farah wrote in 2006 on “Hezbollah’s External Support Network in West Africa and Latin America” that Hezbollah, has the largest financial structure in Latin America and it is similar to that in of the organization’s Africa structure, that is to say, structured along family/clan lines. These clans have family members across the continent’s main free trade zones of Panama, (Venezuela’s) Isla Margarita and the TBA (tri-border area), allowing for multiple opportunities to launder funds by over invoicing stocks, under invoicing merchandise and thtough the use of little-monitored electronic money transfer systems and bulk money smuggling. The first study of this overlapping clan structure spread across broad geographic areas was not undertaken until 2004.

    The TBA has for years drawn attention as a center for contraband smuggling, drug trafficking and large-scale money laundering, in part because all of the countries whose borders are involved profit from the illicit trade. It is also an easy place to hide and move money. Estimates of the amount of drug money alone laundered through the two main urban centers in the TBA, Foz do Iguacu and Ciudad del Este, range as high as $12 billion a year. [15]

    From a 2003 research on Hezbollah “Hezbollah: A Case Study of Global Reach”: Hezbollah is also active in Chile, Venezuela, Cuba, Panama and Ecuador. [16]

    Counter terrorism expert Steven Emerson wrote in 2007 in an article titled “Blood Money: Hezbollah’s revenue stream flows through the Americas”:

    A New Front. Hezbollah operatives have frequently sought out sympathetic members of the Lebanese Diaspora to assist them, several of whom have owned and operated Lebanese restaurants. Salim Boughader Mucharrafille, owner of Cafe La Libanesa in Tijuana, Mexico, was arrested in December 2002 for running a ring that allegedly smuggled at least 200 Lebanese compatriots into the United States , including an employee of Al- Manar, Hezbollah’s television station. Although it was never confirmed, Boughader was suspected of having helped Kourani to slip over the border. Last May, a Mexican judge sentenced Boughader to 14 years in prison for organized crime and human smuggling.
    The case of Rady Zaiter, a.k.a. David Assi Alvarez, is an example of drug-running activities designed to benefit Hezbollah, using a restaurant as a front. In June 2005, Ecuadorian police broke up an international drug-trafficking ring led by the owners of El Turco restaurant: Zaiter and his partner, Maher Hamajo. The restaurant in Quito served as the logistical center for the ring’s activities. Drug mules carried cocaine in double bottomed suitcases bound for other countries in South America, as well as Europe and the Middle East. According to investigating authorities, Hezbollah received at least 70 percent of the drug money. Additionally, officials confiscated more than $150,000 and 2,000 euros. Further arrests were made in Brazil, Syria and the Dutch Antilles, bringing the total apprehended to 19 people. El Turco, like the Detroit-area restaurant La Shish that was recently allegedly linked to Hezbollah, was a very popular restaurant, appreciated by the locals. [4]

    In 2008, Colombia smashed a drug ring tied to Hezbollah, Colombian authorities said that they had broken up a drug and money-laundering ring in an international operation that included the capture of three suspects from the Middle East who used profits from the drug trade to fund Hezbollah.

    More than 100 suspects were arrested in Colombia and overseas on charges that they trafficked drugs and laundered cash for Colombia’s Norte del Valle cartel and outlawed paramilitaries, in a network that stretched from South America to Asia. “The criminal organization used routes through Venezuela, Panama, Guatemala, the Middle East and Europe, bringing in cash from the sale of these substances,” the statement said. [17][18]

    From ‘Inside Homeland Security’ 2009:

    Muslim businessmen operating companies in Panama “for many years” have laundered funds for Hezbollah, Hamas and the PLO.[19]

    U.S.

    The Washington Times had an editorial (2005) on ‘Hezbollah in America,’ a 41-year-old businessman, was arrested at his Dearborn home on charges of smuggling funds to Hezbollah.[20] In 2009, a grand jury in Philadelphia indicted four men in connection with a plot to support Hezbollah through schemes like buying machine guns.[21]

    Al-Mabarrat has a U.S.-based branch headquartered in Dearborn, Mich. Founded in 1991, the Al-Mabarrat Charitable Organization-USA, Inc., has repeatedly changed its name over the past 15 years. Although Al-Mabarrat acknowledges on its Web site that it works in conjunction with the Al-Mabarrat Association in Lebanon (whose logo it shares), it omits the fact that Al-Mabarrat Lebanon is run by Sheikh Fadlallah. Despite Al- Mabarrat USA’s direct link to a Fadlallah-controlled organization, the U.S. branch continues to operate unfettered.

    Hezbollah’s use of Al-Mabarrat as a fund-raising front is a savvy strategic move, mirroring a tactic long exploited by terrorist groups operating on U.S. soil. By utilizing charities, terrorists can generate popular support by providing some legitimate services, attract contributions from donors both unwitting and aware, and attempt to obscure financial trails. But such operations extend far beyond the United States. [4]

    Europe

    There’s a serious “Hezbollah’s Terrorist Threat to the European Union” writes The Heritage (2007) [22]. From a report on “Hezbollah Around the World” – Arabs, Muslims in Germany have been key fund raising center for Hezbollah. through crimes of: drug trafficking, weapons and people smuggling, document and currency fraud. [23] From a May 2010 report: ‘Hezbollah funded by drug trade in Europe,’ German police arrested Lebanese men who transferred millions of Euros to family connected to Hezbollah. [24][25]

    Hezbollah has established several front charities, mainly operating from Great Britain and Germany, to raise funds earmarked to support the group’s members in Lebanon . For example, the British-based Lebanese Welfare Committee, HELP Charity Association for Relief and Abrar Islamic Foundation are among the charities suspected of channeling funds to Sheikh Nasrallah and Hezbollah. [4]

    U.S. Mexican border

    Hezbollah is also accused of using the same southern narcotics routes that Mexican drug kingpins use, that Hezbollah members have entered the U.S. border through drug cartel. [26][27] The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wrote an article on ‎Apr 10, 2009, “The Hezbollah threat: It’s here, now.” [28]

    Blood diamonds

    The Associated Press reported on “Blood diamonds fund Hezbollah” (2004): that Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrilla movement is systematically siphoning profits from West Africa’s multimillion-dollar diamond trade, in part by threatening the Lebanese merchants who long have handled much of the region’s diamond business, US diplomats in West Africa charge.

    The pervasive claim is wider –on organised and co-ercive Hezbollah profiteering from West Africa’s diamond trade– than most US officials have previously acknowledged.

    “One thing that’s incontrovertible is the financing of Hezbollah. It’s not even an open secret; there is no secret,” Larry Andre, deputy chief of mission for the US Embassy in diamond-rich Sierra Leone, told The Associated Press. [29][30]

    T. Schure wrote in “Blood Diamonds: Still Bloody” (May 14, 2010) that West Africa is a well known transit center for smuggled diamonds, especially for Lebanese traders, with many sales funding criminal and terrorist groups including Hezbollah. [31]

    Douglas Farah in the Washington Post: “Digging Up Congo’s Dirty Gems; Officials Say Diamond Trade Funds Radical Islamic Groups”, that diamond dealers and intelligence sources said Hezbollah and other groups buy diamonds in. Congo — sometimes through middlemen, sometimes directly.

    European and American intelligence sources have long known that Hezbollah has raised significant amounts of money in West Africa through the largely Shiite Muslim Lebanese communities in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Togo. There are an estimated 120,000 Lebanese in West Africa, mostly involved in import-export businesses.

    “Hezbollah is active in all these countries and are deeply involved in many businesses across the region,” said one European official tracking the movement. “It is only a small part of the Lebanese community that is sympathetic, but many people contribute to them just to keep Hezbollah off their backs.”

    For at least since the early 1980s, Hezbollah had also raised some cash through the sale of diamonds from Sierra Leone, intelligence sources said. Bah, they said, was long suspected of brokering diamond deals through buyers connected to Hezbollah, assisted by sympathetic Lebanese businessmen across the region. [32]

    Character, racism, fascism

    A writer in the Christian Science Monitor explains that “Hizbullah’s real goal is racist: To free the Middle East holy lands of Jews… Hizbullah’s goal is not the “liberation” of Palestine. Its members are not Palestinian. They are (Arab) Islamic extremists who want to “liberate” all Islamic land.”[33]

    Its Al-Manar television is infamous for being racist, several European countries, including France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as Australia, have also taken measures to block Al-Manar. In March 2005, the broadcasting regulators in the European Union agreed to ban satellite broadcasting of Al-Manar on the basis that the channel carried racist material and incitement. As a result, several satellite service providers, most of them European, dropped Al-Manar, making it unavailable in North and South America, Asia and Australia. Al-Manar, is, however, still available in Europe through Arab satellite companies and its Web site offers English, French and Spanish translations of its material. [34]

    On its TV, Jews are termed pigs and monkeys (stemming from radical Islamic teaching of “apes & pigs” – branding Christians as pigs, Jews as apes [18][19][20][21][22][23]) and the Holocaust is denied. Participants in a network-sponsored symposium urge that Israel “be completely wiped out” and “just like Hitler fought the Jews” the “great Islamic nation of Jihad” should “fight the Jews and burn them.” [35]

    It has been written in an article titled “Hezbollah’s Nazi roots” that “Hezbollah’s Nazi salute evokes memories of Hitler’s support for Arab agitators such as the Grand Mufti (al-Husayni) of Jerusalem and the leaders of a pro-Nazi coup.”[36]

    From the book, ‘Planting hatred, sowing pain: the psychology of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict’:

    Palestinians are constantly exposed to cultural products that expouse classical anti-Semitic ideas. Fir example, a television series produced by Hezbollah, the south Lebanon Shiite militia group, titled Al-Shatat. This series is focused oin the old middle-ages myth of the blood libel (in which Jews –supposedly– need the blood of Christian children for the Passover matzoth). [37]

    Related, from an ADL speech:

    In recent years, Jews were killed because they were Jews, something we have not witnessed since World War II, at the hands of jihadists. There was the Buenos Aires bombings of the Israeli embassy and the Jewish center; there was the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl in Pakistan; there was the kidnapping and murder of Ilan Halimi in Paris; and there was the attack on the Seattle Jewish Federation. Hamas and Hezbollah do not want to kill for land, but to eliminate Jews and a Jewish presence.

    [38]

    Nasrallah & the Jews

    Within a month of Nasrallah’s taking over as leader, Hezbollah (with the help of Iranian intelligence) bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 and injuring over 200. The next attack perpetrated by Hezbollah—again with Iranian help—was the bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, killing 86 and injuring over 200.

    The widening arena of Hezbollah’s attacks stemmed from Nasrallah’s perception that Jews anywhere are legitimate targets. In fact, Nasarallah has said:

    If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002)[39][40][41][42]

    Shiite scholar Amal Saad-Ghorayeb analyzed the anti-Jewish roots of Hezbollah ideology in her book Hezbollah: Politics & Religion. In it, she quotes Hassan Nasrallah describing his antipathy toward Jews:

    If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice, I do not say the Israeli. (New Yorker, Oct. 14, 2002)[43]

    Nasrallah also incoroporates anti-Semitic rhetoric in speeches. For example, he has characterized Jews as the “grandsons of apes and pigs” and “Allah’s most cowardly and greedy creatures.” (MEMRI: Al- Manar, Feb. 3, 2006) [44][45]

    In 1998, Ashura commemorations of Hessein’s martyrdom coincided with Israel’s fiftieth anniversary. Nasrallah used the occasion to lambaste Israelis as “the descendants of apes and pigs. “A few million vagabonds from all over the world, brought together…” [46][47][48]

    Iran’s arm: “Big Satan, Little Satan”

    Israel and the United States as Portrayed in the Doctrine of Hezbollah:

    1) Hatred of Israel (“that vile microbe”) and the Jewish people, –As an arm of Iran it regards, [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] and it seeks to– Eradicating the ‘Little Satan.’ 2) Hatred of the United States (“the big Satan”) [55]

    Death cult, suicide missions, martyrdom philosophy, inventing ‘mass casualty’ bombing

    The doctrine of Hezbollah: Suicide attacks (“the shortest road to Allah”) are of supreme value. [56]

    In May 2006, Nasrallah appeared on the network to explain that “our nation’s willingness to sacrifice their blood, souls, children, fathers, and families” is an advantage over the Jews “who guard their lives.” [57]

    The modern, high-casualty suicide attack, which has changed our lives irreversibly, was invented by Hezbollah in Lebanon in 1982. [5]

    To attack the multinational forces, Hezbolah invented a terrible new weapon–the suicide truck bomb. The group loaded several hundred pounds of explosives into a truck. A member of the group–someone prepared to sacrifice his or her life–would drive the truck in front of an embassy or into a military base. The driver then set off the explosives with a control switch in the truck’s cab. The detonation would instantly destroy the driver, the truck, and any buildings or people standing within several hundred feet. Sheikh Fadlallah and Hezbollah never took credit for these attacks. As a Shi’ite cleric, Fadlallah knew that Islam would get tarnished by terrorism and the killing of innocent civilians. Fadlallah also claimed to be running the Hezbollah as a political, not a military organization. However, as Many Islamic nation have declared jihads against enemies. For this reason, an organization calling itself the “Islamic Jihad” publicly claimed responsibility for terrorists acts in Lebanon. For several years, the United States and other governments tried to find out who was running the Islamic Jihad. In fact, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad were one and the same. [58]

    Regional plans

    Amongst its stated objectives is the establishment of a Shiite theocracy in Lebanon. [59] Hezbollah’s goal is the establishment of an Islamic state encompassing Lebanon and Israel. [60] Many in the Lebanese Christian diaspora, beyond the reach of Hezbollah intimidation, speak out forcefully against turning Lebanon into a Shia theocracy emulating Iran. [61]

    Global Plans

    The Associated Press reported in May, 2010, that a Muslim cleric calls for ‘Greater Iran’ – Shi’ite Islamic union would stretch from Afghanistan to Israel. Ayatollah Mohammad Bagher Kharrazi said the creation of what he termed an “Islamic United States” is a central aim of the political party he leads – called Hizbullah, or Party of God. He added that he hoped to make his vision a reality if the party won the next presidential election. “The Islamic United States will be an introduction to the formation of the global village of the oppressed and that will be a prelude to the single global rule of the Mahdi,” the newspaper quoted him as saying. [62][63]

    Violence, Bloodshed

    Their known spreading of violence & bloodshed includes:

    Regional: Lebanon, Israel

    Kidnappings, torture

    Hezbollah’s founding quickly resulted in a spate of kidnappings, torture. [64] Among the notorious victims were: William Francis Buckley, Terry Anderson, William Richard Higgins.

    Hezbollah’s founding quickly resulted in a spate of kidnappings, torture. [63] Among the notorious victims were: William Francis Buckley, Terry Anderson, William Richard Higgins.

    In March, 1984, Hezbollah operatives kidnapped William Francis Buckley, the CIA’s station chief in Lebanon. He was whisked to Damascus and on to Tehran, where, after 15 months of torture, he succumbed to a heart attack. [65]

    Feb. 17, 1988: The group kidnaps Col. William Higgins, a U.S. Marine serving with a United Nations truce monitoring group in Lebanon, and later murders him.

    The United States asserts that top Hezbollah military commander who was one of America’s most wanted men, accused of involvement in a string of bombings, hijackings and kidnappings during the 1980s and 1990s, Imad Mughniyeh, was also behind the torture and murder of William Buckley, the CIA station chief in Beirut, in 1984; the kidnapping, torture and murder of Lieutenant Colonel William Richard Higgins of the Marines, who was on peacekeeping duty in Lebanon in 1988; and, through the Islamic Jihad Organization, the seizure of Western hostages in Beirut during the 1980s. [66] [67] [68]

    From a legal claim against Iran:

    In the instant case the evidence once again discloses that Iran provided Hezbollah with funding, direction and training for its terrorist activities in Lebanon, including the kidnapping and torture of Terry Anderson hezbollah kidnapping torture and his imprisonment as a hostage for 2,454 days. [69]

    Dec. 31, 1986: Under the alias Organization of the Oppressed on Earth, Hezbollah announces it had kidnapped and murdered three Lebanese Jews. The organization previously had taken responsibility for killing four other Jews since 1984. [70]

    The 1985 Hezbollah torture-murder of Isaac Tarab, 63, and Chaim Halala Cohen, 39, the 1986 Hezbollah’s torturing to death of Ibrahim Benesti, aged 54, of Beirut, and his elderly relatives, Yehudah and Yosef, Benesti’s family – like many Lebanese Jews – had been in Lebanon since 2,000 B.C. (before the birth of Mohammed), [described as a charitable and kindly candy store owner who gave free candy to children of all religions]. All these crimes were motivated for no other reason than for the victims simply being Jewish.[71] See: Character, racism, fascism.

    The Time had a detailed piece by William Dowell in May 23, 1988 titled: “Three Years in the Belly of Beirut”:

    “They weren’t human or inhuman. They were nonhuman.” That was how French Journalist Jean-Paul Kauffmann, quoting fellow hostage Michel Seurat, , described the pro-Iranian Islamic Jihad terrorists who held him hostage for three years. The wrenching account of his kidnaping, captivity and release appeared last week in L’Evenement du Jeudi, the French newsmagazine Kauffmann worked for when he and French Researcher Seurat were abducted in May 1985.
    The two men became hostages by chance after missing a Beirut airport bus and deciding to take a taxi. When a Mercedes pulled alongside and ordered them to stop, they expected a robbery. Instead they were forced into the back of the gunmen’s car. What followed was three years of intimidation and psychological torture.
    For more than a year, the hostages never saw daylight. Their only diversion was reading the handful of books provided by their jailers; Kauffmann read War and Peace more than 20 times. At one point, he and Seurat listened while their Shi’ite captors spent eight days torturing an Arab suspected of being a spy. When it was over, Kauffmann’s jailer joked, “I damaged him a little. He had two broken ribs. We broke both his legs. Finally he talked, and we set him free.” Freedom, Kauffmann learned, was a euphemism for death.
    In one of the most bizarre episodes, Seurat was allowed a brief visit in August 1985 with his wife and daughters in Beirut, and then returned to the cell loaded down with sociology books. It was the last time he saw his family. A month later, he was deathly ill with hepatitis. A Lebanese Jewish doctor, Elie Hallat, who was also a hostage, pleaded in vain for Seurat’s release. As his condition worsened, a Shi’ite commander volunteered a transfusion. “You are becoming a Shi’ite,” joked a captor after Seurat was given blood. In fact, the researcher was dying. By then French Hostages Marcel Carton and Marcel Fontaine had been added to the group. “So I am going to die,” Seurat told his friends.
    In March 1986, the Islamic Jihad announced that it had “executed” Seurat. It seems likely, however, that he succumbed, at 39, to his disease. But the jailers told the hostages he was alive and recovering in a hospital. Kauffmann later learned from a radio newscast that Hallat, doomed by his captors’ rabid anti-Semitism, had been executed. Kauffmann, Carton and Fontaine were continually moved from apartment to apartment. At one point Kauffmann was wrapped in bandages like a mummy, sealed in a metal box and bolted under the chassis of a truck. When he banged on the side, he was told he would be shot. “Kill me,” he snapped back. “It doesn’t make any difference.”
    At another point Kauffmann and Fontaine were tied together and placed in a coffin. When they were let out for a moment, Fontaine peered under his blindfold and saw that they were near a cement factory. “They’re going to kill us here, put our bodies in cement and dump us in the sea,” said Fontaine. Later Kauffmann and Fontaine were put in a new cell and chained like animals to a spike in the floor. [72]

    At a 2008 proisoner swap-deal, Israel was forced to make with Hezbollah, Bradley Burston wrote “The pleasure that Hezbollah takes in torture.”

    Few innocent people have been tortured like the loved ones of the people murdered by Samir Kuntar, the Palestine Liberation Front monster convicted of a crime so brutal that even the designation terrorist is too good for him. This week, the loved ones will know that Kuntar will be feted to a hero’s welcome staged by Hezbollah, whose claims to being a religious organization, stain the word religious with a level of sadism that is astonishing, reaching new levels with every gloat by the torture master who calls himself a spiritual leader, Hassan Nasrallah. But that will be only one aspect of the glee with which Hezbollah will likely take explicit pride and claim exultant victory.

    Not satisfied with keeping the families of kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in the dark for two years as to their fate, a Lebanese report which appears to have been leaked by Hezbollah two days before the prisoner swap, stated that one of the soldiers had survived the kidnapping attack, but that the other was surely dead.

    Then, to torture the families further, the report refrained from revealing which of the two had been killed, or whether the other was still alive. But for sheer gratuitous sadism, the case of Samir Kuntar has few rivals. Consider the survivors of Kuntar’s acts of murder. Consider Smadar Haran, a survivor of the 1979 attack led by Kuntar. Kuntar burst into Haran’s apartment building in the dead of night, seizing Smadar Haran’s husband Danny and their daughter Einat, 4 years old. Desperate to save their two-year-old girl Yael, Smadar Haran huddled with her in a crawl space in the attic. “I will never forget the joy and the hatred in the voices [of Kuntar and his men] as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades,” she later recalled in the Washington Post. “I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed,” she wrote in 2003. “So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. ‘This is just like what happened to my mother,’ I thought.” Smadar Haran’s personal torture had only begun. She would later learn that Kuntar had dragged her husband Danny and older daughter to the beach nearby, where he shot Danny execution style, making sure that her father’s death would be the last sight her little girl would ever see. Kuntar then took the butt of his assault rifle and brought in down on Einat’s head, crushing it against a rock. Smadar Haran would later recall, “By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too, was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her.” Two weeks ago, in an act of heroism that is beyond imagination, Smadar Haran spoke publicly of coming to terms with the impending release of the monster who turned her life into a waking nightmare. “Samir Kuntar isn’t, nor has he ever been, my private prisoner,” she told a news conference. “His fate must be decided now according to Israel’s needs and ethical interests.” …Kuntar… his elevation to the status of hero and martyr to the Palestinian struggle or the Lebanese resistance.

    For Israelis, even after all these years, the release of Kuntar is a form of self-inflicted torture. So heinous, so unpardonable were his crimes, that American Jewish author and journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, himself a veteran of the IDF, wrote on The Atlantic Monthly’s Website… “As unbelievable as this sounds, Israel is actually thinking of swapping Samir Kuntar in a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah. Kuntar is perhaps the most terrible person held in an Israeli prison, a man who crushed the skull of a Jewish child against a rock.” [73]

    Terror attack on US embassy

    The attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon on April 18, 1983 . The bombing was carried out via a stolen van, carrying 2000 pounds of explosives, slamming into the embassy, killing 63 people. [74] [75] [76][77][78]

    Terror attack on peacekeeping US marine

    The attack on U.S. Marine Barracks in Oct. 1983. [79] Hezbollah conducted simultaneous suicide truck bombings against the two buildings housing U.S. Marines and French paratroopers in Beirut, killing 241 Marines and 58 French soldiers who were in Lebanon as part of a multinational peacekeeping mission. [80] [81] [82] [83] A US federal judge found (in 2003) Iran liable for the 1983 bombing of a US marine barracks. [84] [85]

    The Beirut mission started out as an effort to stabilize a fragile peace in a war-torn country. Lebanon had been in turmoil since the Palestine Liberation Organization, having been expelled from Jordan, took refuge there in the 1970s. In 1975, a panoply of Christian and Muslim militias, turned what had been a Middle East oasis into a no-man’s land of urban warfare. The situation fell apart quickly. Islamic Militia leaders began to view the United States and its allies as favoring the Christian-led forces of the Lebanese government. [86]

    Targeting Israeli civilians




    Hezbollah has been targeting Israeli civilians, for years. since the 1980s, (Which prompted Israel in 1996 to conduct a defensive operation “Grapes of Wrath.” [87]) its main weapon – firing rockets, missiles into residential areas[88][89] [90] [91] [92] [93] [94] [95]. Though there were also other methods like in Apr 2001 – A 42 year-old Israeli woman was stabbed to death in Haifa. Her murder was the initiation rite of a terrorist cell, whose members were apprehended in July. Six members of a Hezbollah-linked Palestinian terrorist cell responsible for the murder, originally thought to be criminally motivated, were arrested in July. The murder was the initiation rite of one of the terrorists into the organization. [96][97]

    Use of its civilian population in war


    Use of Lebanese as human shields [98] [99] [100] [101] [102] [103], (copying the Arab-Palestinian tactics routine [24] [25] [26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37]), especially was publicized, in their initiated war with Israel, Hezbollah’s use of “Christian villages as shields in missile attacks.” witnesses: “If Israel does nothing Hezbollah will continue to fire rockets from inside Lebanon shockingly using Christians as human shields actually.” “Hezbollah is hiding among civilian populations and launching attacks behind human shields.” [104] [105], this crime has been categorized as a “Hezbollah specialty” [106], even using the U.N.[107], A.) to cause casualties among their own Arab population, especially among children, in order to generate sympathy and an outcry in the Arab world. B.) Hated Israelis’ image get tarnished, an “important” goal in it of itself to make the Zionists look as “killers.” C.) To cripple Israel’s humane army to respond, thus enables them to come out as “heroes.” [108] & saviours against the Zionist enemy.”

    Subjugation, persecution

    Hezbollah has a long history of persecuting Christians, decries a Lebanese author.[109]

    The writer W. Phares explains on the suffering of civilians, especially since Hezbollah’s take over in 2000:

    Such takeover by the Jihadist militia was expected to provoke an exodus by thousands of civilians who would have been subjected to Hezbollah’s persecution. However suddenly on May 23, the Israeli Government then under Prime Minister Ehud Barak ordered a quick pull out from the security zone without waiting for the local force, at the time known as ‘South Lebanon Army’ (SLA) to be transferred under the United Nations or to operate as a local force to stop Hezbollah until the UN would decide what to do. The population of the “security zone” was about 150,000 counting the district of Jezzine; and its local forces were about 3,000 strong. the make up of the population was Christian, Shia and Druse with some Sunni villages to the East. To their north Hezbollah had massed its forces backed by Iranian Pasdaran advisors. Between 1984 and 2000 Hezbollah launched several offensives against the SLA positions but was unable to overrun them permanently. [110]

    Civil war

    Some of civil war/clashes waged on the Lebanese by the Hezbollah:

    In Jan. 2007, clash pits Hezbollah against rule in Lebanon. The police said at least three people died and 100 more were wounded throughout the country in the violence. [111] [112]

    “Rival factions return to arms as Lebanon stares into the abyss” in Nov 2007.[113]

    In May 8, 2008 Clashes erupted as Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah claims ‘War’ [114], clashes between Hezbollah and Druze continued in Lebanon for the 5th day, it erupted in Lebanon’s northern port city of Tripoli, as fighting between the Hezbollah militia and its rivals grew. [115][116] The Lebanese army said it will intervene, it will use force from to stop fighting, which brough the overall toll to 81 dead and about 250 wounded. [117] [118]

    In July 2008, fighting among Lebanese government and the Islamic Hezbollah terrrorists categorized as “Sectarian battles,” the battles killed six, wounded 50. [119][120][121]

    In 28 Aug 2008, Hezbollah has “brazenly attacked the Lebanese Army” – in its shooting-attack on an army helicopter, killing 1st Lt. Samer Hanna and wounding several others – so say the leaders of Lebanon’s pro-democracy movement. This is not the first time Hezbollah has attacked the Lebanese government. But it is one of the boldest attacks to date against the army. Hezbollah kills Lebanese Army Officer. [122]

    Global violence

    Hezbollah is another example (like Al Qaeda) of an Islamist insurgency that is both local and transnational. [123]

    Attack on US, French embassies in Kuwait

    Hezbollah’s responsible for U.S. and French embassies attacks in Kuwait in 1983 [124]. The American embassy in Kuwait was bombed in a series of attacks whose targets also included the French embassy, the control tower at the airport, the country’s main oil refinery, and a residential area for employees of the American corporation Raytheon. Six people were killed, including a suicide truck bomber, and more than 80 others were injured. In Kuwait, 17 people were arrested and convicted for participating in the attacks. One of those convicted was Mustafa Youssef Badreddin, a cousin and brother-in-law of one of Hezbollah’s senior officers, Imad Mughniyah. After a six-week trial in Kuwait, Badreddin was sentenced to death for his role in the bombings.[125]

    Hijacking Kuwaiti planes

    A year after the 1983 attacks (on US, French targets), Kuwait Airways flight 221 was hijacked wherein the hijackers demanded the release of Islamic militant: ‘Al-Dawa 17.’ Two US passengers were killed and Iranian police freed the hijackers in Iran where the plane had been diverted. Imad Mugniyah and Hezbollah were accused by US authorities in the hijacking and killings.

    In 1988, militants hijacked a second plane, Kuwait Airways Flight 422, with 110 passengers for 16 days. At one point during the hijacking, the plane was diverted to Iran where multiple survivors reportedly believed the original hijackers deplaned and were replaced by a fresh crew of hijackers who were armed with increased gun power.

    During the ordeal, the hijackers met with reporters who quoted one as saying upon requesting the refueling of the plane in order to enable the plane to leave Algeria, “We will liquidate our account with Kuwait elsewhere. We don’t want to have the massacre in a friendly country.” A hijacker was quoted as saying, “Kuwait has to know that we do not fear death.” The hijackers demands included the release of Al-Dawa 17.

    The plane was diverted to Cyprus where two young Kuwaitis aged 20 and 25 were tortured and then shot. Their dead bodies were dumped on the tarmac of the Cyprus airport.[126][127][128]

    Iraq

    Already in November 24, 2003, The New York Times elaborated in an article: “A region inflamed, the hand of Tehran,” Hezbollah, in Iraq, that Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Shiite group, has established a significant presence in Iraq.[129]

    In 2006. U.S. Officials said: “Hezbollah Training Iraqi Shiite Militia Group.“ [130][131]

    The Wall Street Journal wrote (2007) on Iran’s Proxy War, The involvement of Hezbollah in Iraq. [132]

    The BBC reported on additional proof, US officials had in 2007 of the link. [133] In an article on Iran in Iraq, the Washington Post wrote on Iran’s Hezbollah soldiers and methods in the war in Iraq.[134] the CNN reported on a Hezbollah agent played deaf before confessing, the top special operations officer with Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia pretended to be deaf and mute when he was captured in Iraq.[135]

    In 2008, there were reports on Hezbollah training Iraqis in Iran[136] Iraqi president Jalal Talabani charged (May, 2008) Hezbollah interference, in a Baghdad interview, he accused the leader of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah of meddling in Iraq’s affairs.[137]

    In May, 2010, the US said that Syria must curb arm shipments to Hezbollah, top US diplomat has urged Syria to do more to prevent arms shipments to the militant Lebanese Hezbollah and stem the flow of militants into Iraq.[138]

    Somalia

    The New York Times reported on Hezbollah in Somalia. [139] From NPR (November 15, 2006), the “U.N. Report ties Somali Islamists to Hezbollah,” in an alarming report about the situation in Somalia. [140] More than 700 Somali fighters are said to have gone to support and get training from Hezbollah.. [141]

    Afghanistan

    Hezbollah Link in the war in Afghanistan have been found. [142]

    Sudan

    The Hezbollah, reportedly, is very supportive of Al-Bashir’s genocide in the Sudan. [143]

    Egypt

    In 2009, the BBC reported that Egypt was ‘hunting Hezbollah suspects’[144], prosecutor accused Hezbollah of plotting attacks in Egypt, of sending operatives to Egypt to carry out attacks in the country and to smuggle weapons.[145] [146] [147] On Apr 2010 An Egyptian court convicted 26 men of belonging to a Hezbollah cell. [148] The Hezbollah Plot exposed Egypt’s shared interests with Israel.[149] Analysts said that the Egypt-Hezbollah standoff dents Egypt-Iran relations.[150]

    Azerbaijan

    Hezbollah plotted embassy attack’ in Azerbaijan – was revealed in 2009. A trial under way in Azerbaijan of two Hezbollah members and four Azeris, where prosecutors drew a link between Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror missions. [151][152]

    Europe

    Hijacking TWA flight



    Among the highlighted terror crimes of the Hezbollah is the: TWA Hijacking, June 14, 1985: A Trans-World Airlines flight ‘847’ was hijacked en route to Rome from Athens by two Lebanese Hizballah terrorists, and forced to fly to Beirut. The eight crew members and 145 passengers were held for seventeen days, during which one American hostage, a U.S. Navy sailor, was murdered. After being flown twice to Algiers, the aircraft was returned to Beirut after Israel released 435 Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners. [153][154][155][156] [157][158]

    The plane was on a scheduled flight from Cairo to Athens. Hijackers –the two terrorists were brandishing grenades and pistols– forced it to Beirut and twice went to Algiers before returning to Beirut releasing most of the (non-American) 152 passengers along the way, and murdering U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem, one of the passengers—beating him, torturing, shooting him in the temple and dumping his body on the tarmac of Beirut International Airport (June 15).

    On June 30, Hezbollah released 39 American passengers they held captive for 17 days.

    German authorities arrested Mohammed Ali Hammadi and convicted him of Stethem’s murder in 1987. Hammadi was paroled in 2005 and returned to Beirut, where he is believed to be living today (2009). [159][160] [161]

    From a letter, Robert’s brother Kenneth has sent to president George W. Bush in 2006 as Robert’s murderer was released by the German government (and fled to Lebanon) in an apparent exchange for a German hostage in Iraq:

    While Robert was being dragged to the door, he knew that all he had to do in order to live was to cry into that transmitter, but he wouldn’t do it. He would not give in to the demands of the terrorists. He would not allow the honor and dignity of America to be intimidated by the fear and pain that Hammadi and terrorists everywhere represent. Robert sacrificed his life in order to protect our liberty and defend our way of life.[162]

    Dowining of a French airline

    The Los Angeles Times wrote in November 1, 1989 that a Palestinian group allied with Hezbollah is linked to a plane crash.

    Specialists have linked a terrorist bomb that destroyed a French airliner last month (Oct, 1989) in Africa to a Palestinian group allied with the pro-Iranian Hezbollah, the newspaper Figaro said… Working with fragments of a suitcase found in the wreckage of the airliner, specialists in Paris’ central police laboratory found similarities to a terrorist bomb that exploded at a Paris department store almost five years ago. The February 1985 attack at the department store resulted in the arrest of Habib Maammar, a Tunisian member of a group directed by the Palestinian bomb maker Abu Ibrahim. [163]

    Terror attack on French department stores

    Paris’ Boulevard Haussmann was targeted in 1985 and 1986 during attacks on Paris department stores, many of them claimed by the Lebanese Hezbollah militants, which left 13 dead and 303 injured. Terrorists from Hezbollah, set off bombs in both Printemps and Galeries Lafayette in December 1985, injuring 43 people.[164] [165]

    Workers at Printemps in December 1985 when Hezbollah bombs exploded on the ground floor there and in the Galeries Lafayette department store, recalled the attack which led to a bomb scare in Dec. 2008, when explosives were found there. [166] [167]

    Network

    Although Europe has recently been exempt from Hezbollah attacks, numerous intelligence experts and officials assert that the group’s operatives maintain cells across the continent. German authorities, in particular, have expressed concern about the presence of several hundred Hezbollah members in their country.

    Reports of an increase in Hezbollah recruiting have emerged in eastern European countries, specifically Slovakia, Bosnia and Russia . And over the past few years, Hezbollah has sent operatives with European identification papers to Israel in order to collect intelligence for future attacks. Efforts by European authorities to curtail Hezbollah’s influence have included France ‘s 2004 ban of Hezbollah’s television station and chief propaganda machine, Al- Manar, from that nation’s satellite television providers. Spain and the United States have made similar moves. [4]

    Attempts of attacks between 1988-1996

    Other attacks researchers have attributed to Hezbollah include an unsuccessful attempt to carry out attacks in Cyprus in 1988; a plot, foiled by Spanish police, to carry out attacks against Jewish targets in Europe in 1989; an unsuccessful attempt to detonate a car bomb outside a Jewish community building in Romania in 1992; and a planned 1996 attack, also foiled by police, on an Israeli institution in Paris. [168]

    Attempts of ‘massive-attacks’ in 2009

    In 2009, there was a report of a “Massive Hezbollah Terror Attack Against Israeli Target In Europe,” that has been thwarted. [169]

    Latin America

    From a US statement in 1995 titled “Latin American Terrorism backed by Iran”

    “We believe that Hizballah activities, which include narcotics and smuggling as well as terrorism, are supported in the tri-border area of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. The organization is known to have cells in Colombia and Venezuela as well. Hizballah cells are concealed amidst the large Shia’ Muslim population of Lebanese origin which has settled in the tri-border area.” [170]

    Venezuela

    US designated two Hezbollah operatives in Venezuela as terrorists- Hezbollah has used the tri-border region between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay to recruit, train, raise and launder money, and plot attacks. [171]

    Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez (Called a dictator [172] [173][174] & his regime a dictatorship [175], and has close ties with the Mullahcracy theocracy dictatorship of the Islamic Republic of Iran [176] [177]) has publicly supported a Hezbollah candidate for the Lebanese government, he was a supporter of Hezbollah during the 2006 war in Lebanon; afterward, the group placed signs in Lebanon proclaiming “Gracias, Chavez!” He openly invited Hezbollah members to live in Venezuela. Venezuela’s embassies in the Middle East have been used to launder Hezbollah’s dirty money, per investigation by the U.S. Treasury Dept In January 2010, Israeli intelligence released information that Chavez shipped heavy arms to Hezbollah the year before; the ship originated in Venezuela, stopped in Iran and docked in Lebanon. [178]

    Chavez has a close relationship with Iran’s President Ahmedinejad. The two leaders regularly visit each other. In 2007, they instituted weekly flights between Tehran and Caracas. Interestingly, the aircraft stops one place – Damascus, Syria. Journalists and others have tried to book a seat on the aircraft and have been denied. The passenger and cargo manifests are kept secret.

    In an article (2009) in Forbes Magazine it was discussed how an attack by Israel against Gaza could be fought asymmetrically by Hezbollah – with help from Venezuela and Chavez. [179]

    (Worth mentioning [asides from Chavez’s “personal” war with “imperialist” US] that Venezuela, has a large Lebanese-Arab community [180], many of them supported, financed Chavez’s presidency. There’s also a significant concentration of this community in the area bordering with Colombia (Macau). Jews have been attacked[181] in that country. From a (2000) report on “Antisemitism And Racism,” responses to the intifada in the media, in wall graffiti and by Arab organizations in Venezuela such as FEARAB (Arab Federation for Latin America) were directed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel, which was accused of causing the Palestinian tragedy. The radical language used against Israel was not infrequently antisemitic, for example, the comparison of Israeli soldiers with Nazis [182], described (in 2009) as “the New Hero in the Arab World.” [183], moreover, Hezbollah’s Nasrallah said: Arabs have much to learn from Chavez.[184], he was even exhorting his countrymen to return to their “Arab roots,” Chavez has paid state visits to rouge-Arab-Islamic states like: Libya, Iraq and Iran and signed a series of mutual-cooperation.[185], it has been said that “The Arabs have appreciated Chavez’s declarations of support, and the Arab League has promised to lobby in behalf of Venezuela in the United Nations.”[186], a defector even accused: ‘Chavez gave money to Al Qaeda.’[187] In an alarming report, the ADL wrote (2008) “Chavez’s Venezuela: The Jewish Community Under Threat” on praise for Chavez and his anti-Israel actions echoed across the Arab and Muslim, Chavez Fosters Atmosphere of Intimidation and Fear for Venezuelan Jewish community.[188], and that the Chavez Regime is ‘Fostering Anti-Semitism, hate and Supporting Radical Islamists, which led to a rise in Anti-Semitism in Venezuela.[189], Intelligence sources say Chavez is withholding information on Arabs, some of whom were important financial contributors to terrorism.[190], and has illegally given more than 270 Venezuelan passports to Arab extremists. [191])

    Attack on Israeli embassy in Argentina

    Hezbollah & Iran attacked the Israel’s embassy in Argentina in 1992, in which 29 people were killed. [192] [193] [194] [195]

    Attack on a Jewish center (Amia) in Argentina

    Hezbollah & Iran attacked the Israel’s embassy in Argentina in 1992, in which 29 people were killed. [191] [192] [193] [194]

    Hezbollah and Iran both are also charged, via clear evidence, by Argentinian court, terror bombing on the (civilian building) Amia ‘Jewish-Argentine Mutual Association Community Cente’ which killed 85 and wounded 300. [196][197][198][199], furthermore, Argentina accuses Iran of meddling in probe of the 1994 Jewish center bombing[200], the investigation finds Iranian, Hezbollah and Syrian involvement. [201]

    Haaretz wrote in detail on “How Iran planned the Buenos Aires blast – 1994” [202]

    Bombing in Panama

    July 19, 1994 Panama, A suicide bomber reportedly linked to Hezbollah detonated a bomb on a commuter plane in Colón, Panama, killing all 21 people aboard, including 12 Jewish businessmen, at least four of whom were Israeli, and three U.S. citizens. [203][204][205]

    Earlier, on July 18, a bomb killed 95 people at a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The next day, an explosion on a commuter plane in Panama killed all 21 people aboard, inclding 12 Jews. An anti-Israel group in Lebanon had indirectly claimed responsibility for both attacks. [206]

    Experts on terrorism make the link, after the Lebanese newspaper An- Nahar published a communique from an organization calling itself Ansar Allah taking responsibility for the AMIA bombing as well as the bombing over Panama of an Alas Chiricanas passenger airliner.

    As it turns out, the name Ansar Allah turned out to be one of the many fictitious names that Hezbollah has used to claim responsibility for its attacks. Moreover, experience has shown that Hezbollah has habitually adopted this method for the clear purpose of avoiding blame for the various actions it has carried out, except for those realized in Lebanon where the conflict has taken the form of a conventional war. [207]

    From the LA Times, Aug. 4, 1994 “Hezbollah: The Latin connection.”

    Bombings in Argentina and Panama prompt concern over the radical group’s growing presence in the region. Experts say lax security and porous borders create a prime base for terrorists.[208]
