In the past week Syrian forces have sided with Hezbollah in a battle against al-Qaeda in Syria. According to YALIBNAN, “The opposition Free Syrian Army (FSA) claims that chemical weapons were used on Wednesday in a Damascus town by Hezbollah fighters and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.”
Assad has denied that his forces used the chemicals against his own people however, it was stated by Pat Dollard that “Al-Watan, quoting unnamed sources from the Syrian opposition, reported that Syrian President Bashar Assad has been transferring weapons to Hezbollah since the beginning of 2012, including two tons of mustard gas and long-range missiles capable of carrying chemical warheads and traveling 300 kilometers.” Assad, along with Iran, have increased Hezbollah’s weaponry to advance an agenda that is being carried out by “The Party of Allah”.
Hezbollah’s greatest presence can be found in Lebanon, conversely this terrorist organization can be found throughout the world. This Shi’a Islamic militant group is funded by Iran and came into official existence in 1985 after the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Hezbollah translated means “Party of Allah”, and its current leader is Hassan Nasrallah.
Although Hezbollah’s primary mission in the Middle East is to obliterate Israel and claim the territory as their own, this terrorist organization does threaten the United States internally. At the website, http://www.zionism-israel.com/hdoc/Hezbollah_Charter.htm, Hezbollah’s ideology and goals are laid out. Underneath the subheading, “Our Fight” one will find this statement:
The US has tried, through its local agents, to persuade the people that those who crushed their arrogance in Lebanon and frustrated their conspiracy against the oppressed (mustad’afin) were nothing but a bunch of fanatic terrorists whose sole aim is to dynamite bars and destroy slot machines. Such suggestions cannot and will not mislead our umma, for the whole world knows that whoever wishes to oppose the US, that arrogant superpower, cannot indulge in marginal acts which may make it deviate from its major objective. We combat abomination and we shall tear out its very roots, its primary roots, which are the US. All attempts made to drive us into marginal actions will fail, especially as our determination to fight the US is solid.
In the United States, known Hezbollah terrorist cells can be found in the following cities: Detroit, Michigan ~ Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas ~ New York, New York, ~ San Fransisco, California and Potomac, Maryland. This United States manifestation of Hezbollah members is not contained to our homeland alone, but can be accounted for through North America; and they have stated their base can be found in Canada.
