Hezbollah is already here
Sheeple thought of the day: "Hezbollah is not my problem."
You think Hezbollah is only Israel's headache? Wake up. Iranian Hezbollah's
spokesman Mojtaba Bigdeli's threat on Tuesday to dispatch 2,000 operatives
"to every corner of the world to jeopardize Israel and America's interests"
is more than just idle Islamic heavy-breathing.
The Jew-hating terrorists of Hezbollah who call themselves the "party of
God" are already here. In America. Plotting attacks. Raising money.
Slipping through the cracks.
In May, the New York Post reported on Hezbollah's plans to activate sleeper
cells in New York, Los Angeles , Boston and Detroit as the nuclear showdown
with Iran heats up. One focal point: "the Iranian Mission to the United
Nations, where there have already been three episodes in the last four years
in which diplomats and security guards have been expelled for casing and
photographing New York City subways and other potential targets." Heightened
alert comes in the wake of reports that Iranian crackpot president Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad met with Hezbollah leaders in Syria earlier this year.
Four years ago, I reported on how information-sharing walls between federal
immigration and law enforcement agencies created a path to citizenship for
at least one known Hezbollah member. He walked through our figurative front
door. The then-assistant district director for INS investigations in New
York City and two FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) officials were
placed on administrative leave when the bungle was discovered.
Sources informed me the unidentified Middle Eastern male now a fellow
American appeared on terrorist watch lists and is a member of the
Hezbollah terrorist organization. Despite numerous calls from adjudicators
in Newark, N.J., handling the alleged terrorist's naturalization case, the
FBI and INS reportedly did not respond to requests to turn over the
individual's "alien file." The A-file includes biographical and status
information and investigative data. It is unclear why INS and the JTTF did
not turn over the file, or why the New York office neglected to order the
adjudications branch in Newark to put the naturalization process on hold.
Why did INS adjudicators in Newark proceed without viewing the alleged
terrorist's file? Adjudicators to this day remain under intense pressure to
meet naturalization "quotas." Job-performance ratings and cash bonuses are
based on the number of naturalization approvals processed. It's standard

Hezbollah has also enlisted the aid of gullible American women to ease their
way into the country.
Jessica Yolanda Fortune hooked up with Lebanon-born Chawki Youssef Hammoud
in 1994. The marriage enabled him to obtain a green card-and the cover to
operate a Charlotte, North Carolina-based cell that smuggled cigarettes to
raise cash for Hezbollah. The terror cell reportedly answered to a senior
Hezbollah leadership in Lebanon and was part of a broader North American
network responsible for also obtaining dual-use technologies for
Hezbollah including goggles, global positioning systems, stun guns, naval
equipment, nitrogen cutters and laser range finders.
Fortune was convicted of marriage fraud in October 2001. Hammoud was
convicted of smuggling, credit card fraud, money laundering, and
racketeering in June 2002. Fortune's brother-in-law, Mohammed Hammoud,
married three different American women. After arriving in the United
Stateson a counterfeit visa, being ordered deported, and filing an
appeal, he wed
Sabina Edwards to gain a green card. INS officials refused to award him
legal status after this first marriage was deemed bogus in 1994.
He then married Jessica Wedel in May 1997, and while still wed to her, paid
Angela Tsioumas to marry him in Detroit. Tsioumas entered a plea agreement
in March 2002 on charges of conspiracy. Her "husband" was convicted on 16
counts that included providing material support to Hezbollah. A total of 25
people connected to the ring were nabbed.
Does the name "Hammoud" sound familiar? Earlier this month, the FBI
announced the capture of Assem Hammoud also a Lebanese-born Muslim like the
members of the cigarette-smuggling Hammoud gang. He is suspected of working
for al Qaeda on a plot to blow up PATH train tunnels between New Jersey and
lower Manhattan with a team of suicide bombers. The 1998 terrorism
indictment of Osama bin Laden notes al Qaeda's forged alliances "with the
government of Iran and its associated terrorist group Hezbollah."

In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild
adj : affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary
*** Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
In In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians. - The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor. - The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. - The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help the Bush re-election campaign. - The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush advisor Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party. - And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild!
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. The good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
