Hezbollah (Hizbollah) in Mexico
Although the Iranian assassination plot against the Saudi ambassador in Washington, DC, failed, the US was actually rather shocked once it had found out the details, which led to the a Mexican drug cartel.
When Iran and Venezuela became buddies they exchanged much more than smiles and handshakes. Iran imports much of its uranium for nuclear bombs from there, and then there is Hezbollah, the proxy of Iranian terrorist attacks in the Middle East and infiltrating in Mexico and Latin America. In 2006, Hezbollah America was formed in Venezuela and its first act was to bomb the US Embassy in Caracas. Iran now has 11 embassies in Latin America.
Hezbollah is growing in Latin America and Mexico and have solid ties to local drug traffickers and this is a main source of some of their income. There are over 5 million Muslims in Latin America and for Hezbollah it provides fodder for their terrorist activities if cultivated carefully.
In 2010, the US authorities in Arizona caught what seemed to be a member of a Mexican drug cartel, yet his tattoo, was clearly Hezbollah insignia. He was and conducting drug activities with members of a Mexican drug cartel. Some of the cartels are using IEDs and VBIEDS (bombs in vehicles) which clearly are Hezbollah signature and expertise. Luckily, they are only in Mexico.
Then, there was a Syrian officer trying to sell weapons to the Colombian terrorists in exhange for a ton of cocaine. In July , 2010, a Mexican, was caught attempting to set up logistics for a Shiite Lebanese group that would be a base for operations against the US. Luckily, the Mexican police were watching his movements to and from Colombia. Upon questioning, the man divulged that he was trying set up a base camp in Mexico for Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. That was a shock to the system.
America is providing Mexico with much support and training and for good reason, it is in everyone's interest because the infiltration is coming from Iran and there target is the America's.
In December 201, an indictment of Lebanese drug lord Ayman Juma occurred. The indictment revealed Juma was a go-between for Hezbollah and the Mexican Los Zetas cartel. Juma’s indictment showed that 85 tons of cocaine had been delivered into the US for the Los Zetas cartel. Juma had laundered $850 million for the cartel, of which he received approximately 12% in commissions. The commissions were then given to Hezbollah to fund terrorism.
