Mexican Cartels Help Hezbollah Infiltrate U.S.

In a shocking revelation made by a veteran U.S. counterterrorism expert, Hezbollah has infiltrated the Southwest United States by joining forces with Mexican drug cartels that have long operated in the region.

Judicial Watch has for years reported on the chilling connection between Islamic extremists and Mexican drug cartels. In fact, as far back as 2007 JW wrote about an astounding Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) report that lays out how Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug gangs have teamed up to successfully penetrate the U.S. as well as finance terror networks in the Middle East

In Hezbollah’s case, a growing “business relationship” with cartels has allowed the Shia Islamic militant group to have a growing presence in the U.S., says Matthew Levitt, an esteemed terrorism expert with an impressive resume. Levitt is a former counterterrorism intelligence analyst at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and State Department counterterrorism adviser. He also served as the No. 2 intelligence official at the U.S. Treasury where he operated the agency’s terrorism and financial intelligence branch.

Levitt offers details of this mind-boggling collaboration between two powerful criminal enterprises in a new book titled: “Hezbollah: The Global Footprint of Lebanon’s Party of God.” A nonprofit dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamic extremism, the Clarion Project, profiled the book in a recent article titled “Growing Hezbollah Presence in Southwest U.S.”  

Hezbollah’s business relationship with Mexican drug cartels is a driving force behind this phenomenon, according to the analysis that quotes alarming excerpts from the book. For instance in 2009, a former Chief of Operations for the DEA said that Hezbollah uses “the same criminal weapons smugglers, document traffickers and transportation experts as the drug cartels.”

A year later a man (Jamal Yousef) arrested in New York admitted stealing weapons from Iraq for Hezbollah and told authorities of a Hezbollah stockpile in Mexico that included 100 M-16 assault rifles, 100 AR-15 rifles, 2500 hand grenades, C4 explosives and anti-tank weapons. That same year a Hezbollah terrorist was captured in Tijuana and a senior Mexican military officer confirmed the group was conducting explosives training for members of Mexican drug cartels.

In the U.S., law enforcement officials across the nation’s Southwest region report a rise in imprisoned gang members with Farsi tattoos that experts say express loyalty to Hezbollah, the book analysis reveals. One U.S. law enforcement official is quoted as saying this: “You could almost pick your city and you would probably have a [Hezbollah] presence.”

  1. There is such a simple solution to this. I do NOT understand why it hasn’t been done already.
    First, take an ad out in every major newspaper in Mexico as well as Central America;
    Do the same thing on the major TV Network News.

    Put the Military on the border stating in those ads that anyone shot crossing the border…..the U.S.will NOT accept wrongful death lawsuits if the families try to file suit for the murder of friends and/or family. They were, after all, “invading” a country illegally.

    Folks, this is not rocket science!!
    Oh! And, the stupid fence? The Cartels have dug very sophisticated tunnels between Mexico and the U.S. complete with lighting and water for their long tiring journey.

    1. They need to make a two fence border rounded with automated security cameras and weapons, with warning that anyone who breaks through the first fence is shot without further questioning. Cartels are now merely lifting the fence and getting through. This is a dangerous joke.

  2. This is very scary. Nothing will be done while Obozo is in office.

    By the way, I’d just like to thank the Muslim Issue for the excellent articles.

  3. This could be part of the reason he didn’t WANT the borders protected. After all, how could his friends get into the country.
