Terrorists At Our Southern Border

The Face of Islam

Sign of Things to Come?

Something happened at our southern border, with Mexico, last week that garnered little in the way of attention from the MSM. Not one major TV network picked it up to my knowledge. No, it was not a gang of narco-terrorists killing more of our law enforcement officers. No, it was not about illegal immigrants trashing their way across the border to the land of free social services. Unfortunately, it is something that many people (including yours truly ) have been saying since September 11, 2001. It is a fear that keeps our dedicated men and women at the U.S. Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Federal Bureau of Investigation and law enforcement all along the Mexican border up at night worrying about the "perfect storm ."

What happened last week was a Muslim cleric, Said Jaziri, was caught trying to enter this country at the Mexican border. Jaziri was curled up in the "boot" of a Mexican BMW. What is unfortunate about this incident is that Said Jaziri is not just an ordinary Muslim cleric. He has been banned from Canada and the UK for his controversial inflammatory speech. He was the cleric who called for the death of a Danish cartoonist who drew a picture of the prophet Mohammed, How difficult was it for him to get as far as he did? He had a Mexican guide help him cross the border at Tecate. He later caught a ride with the driver who drove him to the border. The driver, Robert Lawler and Said Jaziri were both arrested. Jaziri claims he would be tortured if he is repatriated to his homeland of Tunisia.

The fact that a controversial Muslim cleric was caught at the border is not the real story here. The real story is how many Islamic militants have crossed our southern border undetected? It is beyond the absurd to think this is just an isolated case. Sure, Jaziri wanted to come to the USA for protection for his controversial (he has stated that homosexuality is a disease) ideas. But, what does this mean for U.S. security? It should be a wakeup call to the U.S. government. But, because he was caught, no alarms went off in the Obama administration. I doubt any mention was made of it by a White House spokesman. I find it doubtful that Big Sis at Homeland Security uttered a word about this. There have long been fears that sleeper cells of Muslim fanatics have crossed our border with Mexico since 9-1-1. The FBI has not been able to find sleeper cells thus far. But, that sure as hell doesn't mean they don't exist.

My biggest fear has been of Muslim fanatics crossing our border, helped by illegal aliens, with the material necessary to make a dirty bomb. I've always believed if it were to happen, it will be in a so-called "sanctuary city" like Houston, Texas. Obviously, Muslim fanatics have no regard or any cares about illegal aliens, much less Americans and legal residents. Sanctuary city or not, that would be their prime target because of the inability of local law enforcement to inquire about immigration status. These people could go undetected for the months or even years necessary to carry out this horrific scenario. Could this happen? If the sign of a fanatical Muslim cleric being caught at the border doesn't give credence to this possibly happening, I don't know what will. Now, I don't think Said Jaziri was crossing the border for no other reason than to find a safe house to keep from being deported to Tunisia. But, I don't know that for a fact. We should err on the side of caution in a case such as this.

Of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention the incompetence or unwillingness of the Mexican government to help patrol our mutual border. They are too busy pushing their illiterate peasants onto the burdens of the American taxpayer than to be worried about something as trivial as Muslim fanatics crossing from their country into the USA. If the above nightmare scenario ever does take place, Mexico will have an indirect hand in a dirty bomb detonating in an American city. Promises will be made to secure the border and a "new willingness " by Mexico to stop the flow of illegal aliens into this country. But, that will be far too late for the many Americans (and precious illegal aliens) that would die from the negligence of both the Mexican government and the U.S. government as well. While a dirty bomb is not on the same level as the atomic weapons in arsenals around the world. the devastating psychologlical effects would last for decades. Don't think the Muslim cleric, Said Jaziri, is not aware of this also.

Paul, Mexico is a priority because of their own political corruption. It is their government that created our illegal immigration problems. I'm not sure how anyone can not recognize this. Yes, Mexico is a problem we have to deal with now. I agree with you that much. I agree with you about a strong Mexico makes everything better for both countries. But, at some point (and I know you must be tired of this by now), Mexico has to decide to stop accepting welfare from the USA and stand on their own. This is an ongoing problem. The illegal immigration problem didn't just pop up recently. It has been a problem since the late 19th century. Only now it is worse due to world economic conditions. Mexico has to deal with not becoming a narco-state right now. That is their priority right now or it should be.

Yes, Mexico should be a priority. Mexico is our direct neighbor, North Americans, they affect our Continental property value. A strong Mexico solves immigration and makes us safer. The problem should be fixed through education on both sides.

Paul, actually, I didn't say anything about not affecting us if Mexico is "struggling like hell." I'm saying at some point in time, Mexico has to take care of themselves. They have been struggling since the President Theodore Roosevelt administration. They are supposed to be a sovereign state, not a U.S. territory. Answer these questions; should we help every "struggling" country by taking their indigent and caring for them? For how long should we do this? How about our own indigent? Do they just take a backseat to the poor of Latin America?

Yeah, guess your right, doesn't affect us if they are struggling like hell, every man for himself.

PaulStaley, it seems like Mexico would have a vested interest in taking care of themselves. But, like all Latin American countries, they are inherently corrupt and constantly need help as a result. Mexico could be a good neighbor by controlling their northern border. But, I don't expect that to ever happen.

Sounds like we have a vested interest that Mexico does well. They are our neighbors!

Way past, but it will not happen, there is a reason and it hasn't been fulfilled. People are getting rich leaving the borders open and they can never have enough and Obama may yet make them all citizens, but then they shouldn't get all the freebies, or medical. There are some going home though I am hearing where factories in the states are going bankrupt and no work for them.

We on the same page insofar as illegal immigration, Polly. This has been my #1 issue with politicians. Both Alabama senators almost know me by my first name now! LOL I'm lucky in that both of our senators are staunchly against illegals. I've seen enough Americans killed, murdered and raped by illegal aliens. Time to ship them OUT of this country.

It is really maddening and so many just everyday citizens call you a trouble maker trying to save everyone from disaster. I can't even remember if you and I are on the same side David (although I am on no ones side really unless they don't lie to my face and expect me to smile and believe it)but I do know we both see the danger and try to warn. It just is so unbelievable so many could care less. Oh to have the the Hippies back...they must have had the good dope. Bad joke..but you know what I mean. They would die protesting, they could make people listen, and not just Hippies...many many stood up for our country. Now we have none to protest and really no country, we really don't.

Polly, it does not surprise me that Yahoo deleted that comment. There is a lot of that going around now to those who have a conservative ideology. It is happening right here on HP with little fanfare. The Socilists simply can not abide by dissent. Facts are rarely, if ever, on their side. So, the only thing they can do is censure. That's it. The diseases that illegals bring across is a great hidden secret that few want to touch. Right here in Alabama, there were two recorded cases of TB, a disease that was supposedly eradicated. Nothing surprises me any longer.

My husband hears a lot at work on some station that concentrates on these things and he told me one of them was talking about how we are pushed to fear the terrorist countries away when we have an open border to a country beheading each other and running in and out of our country with drugs and our government doesn't care and we all know why. It is the craziest thing we have ever let our government get by with! And yes anyone can get in, they know that too. I have heard one story Hillary was taking I thought it said billions and going to work with Mexico's leader, so maybe it was millions instead, but then not so long ago I know it was $600 million Obama was taking for border control. I posted a question on yahoo questions asking how many knew we had at least 10 million unscreened illegals in our country with diseases we had wiped out or never known working in restaurants and with produce and meat factories. Mexico buses their really ill over to the states and we foot the bill besides for the millions here and they can't get a plan for citizens. They deleted it. It wasn't a lie I even told what some official from new York said that it was epidemic and Americans had no idea how bad it was. What are we going to do? Surely someone has an answer. I think I might feel safer in Iran.

Brenda, I don't hold out much hope for Obama to wake up in regard to our border with Mexico also. I am really worried that no one in the Obama administration realizes the danger they are placing Americans in so they can placate the open borders zealots. Thanks for the comment.

breakfastpop, Napoltano is as clueless as Obama. Both are inept and ill-qualified to be in the positions they are in now. November 2012 needs to get here soon. Thanks for the comment.

Very important and well done hub. This one incident is just the tip of the iceberg. Napolitano is inept and it's time for her to go. Voted up and useful.

Good timely hub. Thanks for exposing these facts. As far as Obama waking up, I don't hold my breath for that.

Larry, thanks for all you do on my hubs. It is much appreciated. It appears this hub was posted with great timing. WikiLeaks has released documents that say al-qaeda has got a dirty bomb ready to use. I have it linked above....but here it is again. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Qaida+brink+using...

eovery, I worry about it all the time for some reason. I just think this is the scenario that is going to cause us a great tragedy for this country. Obama and his lackeys better wake up.

Tweeted and Facebooked this today.

I'll share it further tomorrow. You did a good job on this one. I knew about it before this, but you gave more information about it. I've already oiled my Guns up for action. Fools won't get away with much if we keep an eye out.

As usual, you put together another great and useful hubpage for us to learn from.

Thanks
