Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) on Friday said Hezbollah is setting up camp in Mexico and that Middle Eastern individuals who wish to do Americans harm are coming across the border. “We know that Hezbollah has been setting up camp across the U.S. border in Mexico, that they have been working with drug cartels in Mexico," Gohmert said. "It appears we see some of the signs of that in the way people are murdered, the way the crime business is developed.” Hezbollah is a Shiite militant group based out of Southern Lebanon that receives funding from Iran and seeks the destruction of both Israel and the United States. The U.S. State Department classifies Hezbollah as a terrorist organization........
Any body else heard about this? Sounds like this alone should give us enough reason to close our southern border.
A book celebrating suicide bombers has been found in the Arizona desert just north of the U.S.-Mexican border, authorities tell Fox News.
The book, “In Memory of Our Martyrs,” was spotted Tuesday by a U.S. Border Patrol agent out of the Casa Grande substation who was patrolling a route known for smuggling illegal immigrants and drugs.
Published in Iran, it consists of short biographies of Islamic suicide bombers and other Islamic militants who died carrying out attacks.
According to internal U.S. Customs and Border Protection documents, “The book also includes letters from suicide attackers to their families, as well as some of their last wills and testaments.” Each biographical page contains “the terrorist’s name, date of death, and how they died.” www.foxnews.com...
...Here are the highlights from the documents, which we obtained pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request filed on January 26, 2011:

* U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended 59,017 “Other Than Mexican” illegal aliens through October 7, 2010.
* Among the nations represented in apprehension statistics are the four countries currently on the State Department’s list of “State Sponsors of Terrorism,” Cuba (712), Iran (14), Syria (5) and Sudan (5), as well as Somalia (9), Afghanistan (9), Pakistan (37), Saudi Arabia (5) and Yemen (11).

...Gee, the govt is really on the ball. Those along the southern AZ border knew all this over 10 years ago when the prayer rugs, korans, and illegals arrived who claimed to be from Mexico but could hardly speak the language....biggovernment.com...
One local television news program recently interviewed a former U.S. intelligence agent who has spent many years tracking Hezbollah activities in Mexico. The following are some quotes from that interview about Hezbollah....
*"They are recognized by many experts as the 'A' team of Muslim terrorist organizations."
*"We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico."
*"they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans"
*"They're focusing on developing … infiltrating communities within North America." Right now they are making a ton of money from selling drugs and trafficking illegal aliens, and they send that money back to Lebanon to fund the fight against Israel. But someday the organization that Hezbollah has built up in Mexico will be used to fight against the United States.
