Bartell and Gray, Hezbollah The Mexican drug cartels have facilitated the acquisition of weapons and weapon. components and the smuggling of weapons weapon components and Hezbollah operatives. into the United States These smuggling operations place Hezbollah terrorists and the. resources they need to carry out terrorist operations within the borders of the United States. And fourth the potential of Hezbollah establishing itself in Mexico gives Hezbollah safe. haven within close proximity to the United States This makes it easier for Hezbollah to plan. and stage terrorist operations against the United States. Similar to Hezbollah Al Shabaab presents a direct threat to the United States for. several reasons by staging itself within Mexico First the recruitment efforts of Al Shabaab. to target Islamic residents of the United States is easier when Al Shabaab is geographically. co located within proximity of the targets of its recruitment Al Shabaab recruiting Islamic. residents of the United States creates radicalized and terrorist trained individuals that can. travel reside and operate freely in the United States Second Al Shabaab s affiliation with al. Qaeda aligns Al Shabaab with al Qaeda s global jihad in which the United States it allies. and interests are a primary target With Al Shabaab absorbing the philosophy of al Qaeda s. global jihad an Al Shabaab terrorist element in the state of Mexico makes it easier for Al. Shabaab to successfully target the United States Third Al Shabaab residing in Mexico. makes it easier to smuggle Al Shabaab operatives into the United States via the U S Mexican. border These smuggling operations have created a situation where US officials are unable to. track the number of Al Shabaab terrorists that may already be in the United States making it. difficult for the United States to mitigate this threat And forth the potential of Al Shabaab. establishing itself in Mexico gives Al Shabaab safe haven within close proximity to the. United States This makes it easier for Al Shabaab to plan and stage terrorist operations. against the United States The common contributing factor that has allowed for Hezbollah. and Al Shabaab to reside within the state of Mexico is Mexico s inability to secure much of. its sovereign territory or its border between Mexico and the United States. The Creation and Development of Hezbollah, One terrorist group residing in Mexico that presents a direct threat to the United. States is Hezbollah Hezbollah is a Shi a militant group that is also considered a Muslim. political entity but because of its violent activities is also considered a terrorist group. Hezbollah is a Shiite Muslim political group with a militant wing the United States defines. as a terrorist organization CFR Hezbollah 2010 The event that led to the creation and. development of Hezbollah stems from the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 when. thousands of Palestinians were pushed into the neighboring countries of Lebanon and. Jordan Fetini 2009 The Anti Defamation League ADL goes further to explain that. Hezbollah was able to do establish itself with the help of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards. Corps IRGC Iran s elite military unit ADL Hezbollah 2012 Since Hezbollah s. creation Hezbollah has continued to enjoy substantial support and sponsorship from Iran. Iran s elite military unit the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps IRGC. supports Hezbollah with training weapons and financial support The IRGC s. special operations branch provides Hezbollah with 100 200 million in. funding every year and has allegedly trained Hezbollah fighters in various. Hezbollah and Al Shabaab in Mexico and the Terrorist Threat to the United States. military tactics according to the U S Treasury Department ADL Hezbollah. Another country Hezbollah relies heavily on for different types of support is Syria. Hezbollah receives diplomatic political and logistical support from Syria according to the. U S State Department Syria reportedly supplies Hezbollah with a quarter of the terrorist. organization s arsenal of mid and long range missiles ADL Hezbollah 2012 On the. political side Hezbollah maintains a presence and political influence within Lebanon Its. base is in Lebanon s Shiite dominated areas including parts of Beirut southern Lebanon and. the Bekaa Valley CFR Hezbollah 2010 Hezbollah s main goal is eradicating the Israeli. presence in Lebanon through a series of crude guerrilla attacks including suicide bombings. kidnappings and assassinations Fetini 2009 Since Hezbollah s creation in 1982. Hezbollah has persistently pursued the goal of eradicating the Israeli presence in Lebanon. and up to the present time has continued to wage an anti Israel campaign and guerilla war. against Israeli forces CFR Hezbollah 2010, However Hezbollah did realize in order be completely successful in reaching this. goal of eradicating Israeli forces in Lebanon it could not remain strictly a guerilla force it. had to expand into politics in order to achieve strength legitimacy and political influence in. the region Hezbollah began pursuing political legitimacy in 1992 when Hezbollah got a new. Nasrallah took over as the group s secretary general Capitalizing on its. growing clout among sympathetic Lebanese and claiming a spot under the. ideological umbrella of Iran s ayatollah Nasrallah entered Hizballah into. Lebanon s general election that year the group won eight parliamentary seats. solidifying its legitimacy Fetini 2009, In addition to becoming a political entity Hezbollah provides basic services and. assistance to Lebanon s Shi a population in order to maintain and grow its support. Hezbollah is a major provider of social services operating schools hospitals and. agricultural services for thousands of Lebanese Shiites CFR Hezbollah 2010 Hezbollah. also provides these basic services assistance and military protection in order to maintain its. political influence in the region and retain its parliamentary seats Hezbollah s political. standing was bolstered after a wave of violence in May 2008 prompted Lebanon s lawmakers. to compromise with the group In August 2008 the country s parliament approved a national. unity cabinet giving Hezbollah and its allies veto power with eleven of thirty cabinet seats. CFR Hezbollah 2010, Although Hezbollah may be a recognized political entity and a legitimate force by.
Lebanon and most Arab states many Western governments meanwhile consider it a. terrorist group it was placed on the U S State Department s terrorist list in 1999 Fetini. 2009 The perspective of many Western governments that Hezbollah is a terrorist group is. well founded due to the historical terrorist operations Hezbollah has been involved in. Hezbollah has, Been implicated in numerous terrorist attacks against Western targets. Bartell and Gray, including the 1983 bombings at the U S Embassy and the multinational force. barracks in Beirut Hezbollah is also responsible for the 1985 hijacking of. TWA flight 847 during which a U S Navy diver was killed and the 1996. Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 American servicemen. CFR Hezbollah 2010, What is disturbing about these terrorist operations is that it shows Hezbollah s. willingness to conduct terrorist operations outside the region of Lebanon and Israel and to. also to target Western targets Although it is well established that Hezbollah is based mainly. in Lebanon U S intelligence reports say that Hezbollah cells operate in Europe Africa. South America and North America CFR Hezbollah 2010 Hezbollah s willingness to. operate internationally has become a direct threat to the United States According to a former. U S intelligence agent Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then. Central America along with their sometime rival sometime ally Hamas Now the group is. blending into Shi a Muslim communities in Mexico including Tijuana San Diego News. 2011 The threat to the United States by Hezbollah establishing itself in Mexico according. to the Tucson Police Department is due to the U S political and financial support of Israel. Hezbollah regards our nation as a viable target Rios 2010 What compounds this danger is. the fact that Iran is also vehemently anti Israel and Iran has been known to use Hezbollah as. a proxy to strike targets directed by Iran, Iran was previously accused in a disrupted plot to assassinate the Saudi. ambassador to the U S here last year a plan interpreted in the U S. intelligence community as a clear message that Iran is not afraid to carry out. an attack inside this country U S officials long have worried that Iran would. use Hezbollah to carry attacks into the United States Sullivan 2012. Hezbollah in Mexico, The presence of Hezbollah in Mexico makes it easier for Iran to use Hezbollah as a.
proxy to strike targets within the United States if Iran were ever to see fit to do so Iran has. been blamed for violent acts in the U S before In 1980 for instance an American convert to. Islam gunned down an Iranian critic of Iran s religious leaders in Bethesda MD Sullivan. 2012 The presence of terrorist groups in Mexico is not a recent trend. Statements made by high ranking Mexican officials prior to and following the. September 11 2001 terrorist attacks indicate that one or more Islamic terrorist. organizations has sought to establish a presence in Mexico In May 2001. former Mexican National security adviser and ambassador to the United. Nations Adolfo Aguilar Zinser reported that Spanish and Islamic terrorist. groups are using Mexico as a refuge McCaul 2006, Nor is the presence of Hezbollah in Mexico a recent trend In 2011 a former U S intelligence. agent stated in a report aired by 10 News San Diego that we are looking at 15 or 20 years. that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico San Diego News 2011 Hezbollah is. not the only terrorist group establishing itself in Mexico. Hezbollah and Al Shabaab in Mexico and the Terrorist Threat to the United States. Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Robert Mueller has confirmed in. testimony that there are individuals from countries with known al Qa ida. connections who are changing their Islamic surnames to Hispanic sounding. names and obtaining false Hispanic identities learning to speak Spanish and. pretending to be Hispanic immigrants McCaul 2006, The danger in having terrorist operatives in Mexico assimilating and blending into the. Mexican population is that it makes it much more difficult for authorities to properly identify. these individuals as terrorists and gives these terrorists freedom of movement within Mexico. and possibly within the United States as well, Furthering Hezbollah s success as an international terrorist group in North America is. Hezbollah s efforts to establish a relationship with Mexico s drug cartels Michael Braun a. former chief of operations at the Drug Enforcement Agency said Hezbollah had developed. relationships with the powerful Mexican drug cartels to move their agenda forward New. Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management 2012 Hezbollah. in establishing this relationship with Mexican drug cartels has set itself up to take advantage. of the well established criminal transportation and smuggling routes between Mexico and the. United States, Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez summed it up this way I dare to say that at any. given time daytime or nighttime one can get on a boat and traverse back and. forth between Texas and Mexico and not get caught If smugglers can bring in. tons of marijuana and cocaine at one time and can smuggle 20 to 30 persons at. one time one can just imagine how easy it would be to bring in 2 to 3. terrorists or their weapons of mass destruction across the river and not be. detected Chances of apprehension are very slim McCaul 2006. The danger in this is it increases the ability of Hezbollah to plan set up and conduct terrorist. operations from Mexico against targets in the United States. Braun said Quds Force and Hezbollah work very very hard to develop. relationships with criminal groups that already have in place systems for. illegal activities including drug and human trafficking money laundering and. forged document operations And by developing those relations it provides. them with the ability to operate far from home in our neighborhood and as I. said earlier on our doorstep New Mexico Department of Homeland. Security and Emergency Management 2012, Although Hezbollah mainly operates within Lebanon with an anti Israeli agenda the.
United States is considered a viable target because of the United State s open support to. Israel Historically Hezbollah has shown it is willing to targeting Americans around the. world and willing to strike targets in the United States Prior to the September 11 2001. terrorist attacks Hezbollah was responsible for the deaths of more Americans around the. world than any other terrorist organization ADL Hezbollah 2012 Hezbollah residing in. Bartell and Gray, Mexico and fostering a relationship with the Mexican drug cartels has increased the terrorist. capacity of Hezbollah to strike targets in the United States In a 20 February 2012 New. Mexico Department of Homeland Security report Michael Braun. Cited a plot recently uncovered by the DEA involving an Iranian operative in.
