Hezbollah in America

I am bringing this back up to the top.
I received a comment this morning. You see my blog is set up so that I can OK posts made on here, and I like it that way. However, because this recent comment is shall we say not friendly and not just some Democrat spouting off I thought it was a good idea to allow the comment to show up. To have a record of it being made is the reason I allowed it.

I find it interesting that this poster calling himself madcat, decided to comment on a post I made all the way back on October 12th .
So madcat, have a nice day. I am giving you your 15 minutes of fame.

Here is my original post dated October 12th,2005................................

Hezbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah quotes: "Israel is our enemy. This is an aggressive, illegal, and illegitimate entity, which has no future in our land. Its destiny is manifested in our motto: 'Death to Israel, Death to America!"

Nasrallah has said Hezbollah is proud to be called a terrorist organization by the "Great Satan." He has repeatedly argued that the United States is the cause of all Lebanon's woes. In the wake of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, he explained "death to America is not a slogan. Death to America is a policy, a strategy and a vision."

Hassan Nasrallah:"How can death become joyous? How can death become happiness? When Al-Hussein asked his nephew Al-Qassem, when he had not yet reached puberty: 'How do you like the taste of death, son?' He answered that it was sweeter than honey. How can the foul taste of death become sweeter than honey? Only through conviction, ideology, and faith, through belief, and devotion. We are not interested in our own personal security. On the contrary, each of us lives his days and nights hoping more than anything to be killed for the sake of Allah."

Aside from al Qaeda, no terrorist group has killed more Americans than Hezbollah, which is bankrolled by Iran to the tune of at least $100 million a year. Hezbollah's main theaters of operation are Lebanon, its home country (where it killed hundreds of Americans during the 1980s), and the West Bank and Gaza, where it helps Palestinian rejectionists target Israel. But the group is active in the United States as well. Hezbollah is believed to have cells in at least 10 U.S. cities.

Although the organization has yet to launch an attack on U.S. soil, its U.S. activities are far from benign. Its work in this country has two major purposes: One is to raise money and smuggle arms to Hezbollah fighters, often by criminal activities ranging from credit-card fraud to cigarette smuggling; and the other is to conduct surveillance behind enemy lines, with a possible eye toward launching attacks on U.S. targets in the event of an armed conflict between the United States and Tehran. Like his backers in Iran, Hezbollah boss Hassan Nasrallah routinely denounces the United States and Israel as his organization's main enemies. Given the events of September 11, and given Hezbollah's own record of kidnapping, torturing and killing Americans when it has had the opportunity, we ignore the group's operations in this country at our peril.

Outside of metropolitan Detroit, last month's arrest of Nemr Ali Rahal, a 41-year-old businessman, at his Dearborn home on charges of smuggling funds to Hezbollah, went largely unreported by the news media around the United States. But the story deserves our attention. In Mr. Rahal's house, agents found a videotape of a Hezbollah rally he attended in Lebanon three years ago. The FBI said it found $600 worth of change in buckets in the Rahal home, and that he said the money was meant to go to "orphans" -- the children of suicide bombers. Mr. Rahal has been charged with stealing more than $400,000 by means of credit-card fraud. When Mr. Rahal returned Feb. 9 from a trip to Canada, Customs agents found traces of explosives on his passport.

In March,Mahmoud Kourani of Dearborn pleaded guilty to providing material support for Hezbollah. He will be sentenced next month. Kourani (whose brother is Hezbollah's chief of military security in southern Lebanon) is an illegal alien who sneaked into the United States from Mexico in February 2001. Federal authorities have repeatedly arrested suspected Hezbollah operatives for attempting to smuggle night-vision goggles and other military equipment to the organization. One suspect, arrested in 1998, skipped bail and fled to Lebanon before returning to the United States last year to face federal charges. In 2003, a federal court convicted a Hezbollah cell based in Charlotte, N.C., on charges of aiding Hezbollah by operating a cigarette-smuggling ring. The leader of that group, Mohammed Hammoud, received 155 years in prison.

Well this is my message to the Hezbollah!

Our Troops will find you!

Our Troops will take you out!

Count on it!

Here’s something I bet most don't know.

Back when I had my last security briefing (1996) the largest know cell of Hammas outside of the Middle East was located in Kansas City.

Detroit has a very large population of Arabs, one of the largest in the world except for a few cities in the Middle East. During Desert Storm that was of great concern to those based at Wurtsmith AFB which is only about 150 miles North of Detroit. B-52’s from Wurtsmith dropped over 28% of the total tonnage of bombs on Iraq.

They’re not only here; they have been here for a long time. We had better be prepared.

It's time to put the comics down, discard your Star Trek Transporter model, your bath towel turban, and move out of your mother's basement. While you're at it, open the window to air out the Clearasil smell, change your pink boxers, use a moist towelette on yourself and buy a new pair of flip-flops.

When you get into the sun, your complexion will clear up, your pasty face will turn pink, and be sure to wear your My Little Pony sunglasses to protect your beady eyes. Also learn how to spell, pinhead.

Then, when your pals at Hezbollah run up against a real American male, count the ways we eliminate this human garbage. Find a can for yourself, too, snotball, and never, never, find yourself in my path.

And our women aren't homely and scared like yours Madcat

I think Madcat is just some dysfunctional lefty misfit somewhere on one of the coasts. His highest ambition is to have a moustache as thick as his mother's.

The troubling equation is that 100,000 Hezbollah means that Madcat's God has to mint 720,000 virgins in only a couple of days after our guys get there. That's a big order, even for Madcat's God. The Marines have one word for Madcat. Fallujah.

Little piglet, why don't you come and meet my friends, they would love to meet you: USMC 2nd Division, Iraq. Looking forward to tearing your heart out, and feeding it to the hogs.

Semper Fi, my man. Little Piglet (great nickname).

Kicked Israel out of Lebanon? What, are you dreaming or wishing? You couldn’t kick an Israeli out of a McDonalds, never mind Lebanon.

Posted by: BobF at January 31, 2006 03:04 PM

Rhod, thanks! The USMC is very near and dear to me. My father-in-law was in the Marines, My "Uncle" Fitz served with the 2nd during WWII. He fought at Guadalcanal, and Tarawa where he was wounded.

The link below is about how the 2nd is doing in Iraq.

The wanker Madcat probably isn't a terrorist symp, but the end product of a process that involved a paternity suit involving several men. Some poor dope lost and ended up with him. Now Madcat (call him Angry Pussy...sorry Wild Thing...delete if necessary) spends his time in front of a computer, spending the loser's money and pretending he's a tough guy.

In any case, the remark about the Marines in Lebanon was despicable. It's the one thing for which I fault Reagan, because he didn't multiply the 240 Marines who died by ten thousand, and kill that many radical Islamists as a response. Things would be different today if he had.

Madcat should remember Fallujah, which also involved Armored Cav (Army), because the Marines there certainly had The Barracks to avenge, and the Army knocked down the walls enabling them to do it.

It's taken me a long time to come around to the Semper Fi, because I never liked them in VN (although their tactics were superior to ours). But I've met the best of them on the blogs, and there are none better. None. You have much to be proud of.

Thank you all! Well except for madcat. haha

(((((hug)))))for each of you!

Madcat go do one of your 5 prayers a day and pray you never meet up with our troops or our Veterans. Your ass will be grass!
