Hezbollah’s CFO Defects to Israel With Millions in Stolen Funds

(Al Arabiya)

Hezbollah’s CFO defected to Israel today with millions in stolen money from Iran.
The 29 year-old Hussein Fahs also took with him classified documents and maps.
Al-Arabiya reported:

Hezbollah’s CFO has fled to Israel taking with him large sum of stolen money, classified documents and maps, local news media reported on Friday.

The news website, Now Lebanon, cited Hezbollah officials saying that the 29-year old telecommunication engineer, Hussein Fahs, has crossed to Israel carrying with him $5 million in embezzled money from the group. Fahs is also head of Hezbollah’s operational communications network.

In September, Fahs, who is native of southern Lebanon, was arrested along with other four Hezbollah members over the suspicion of embezzling the group’s funds and collaborating with Israel, Yoni Alpert’s Terror Watch reported.

The operation to arrest the five was a collaborative one between Hezbollah and Iranian intelligence. Hezbollah, which has long been a staunch ally to both Iran and Syria, officially became part of the Lebanese government in 2011.

According to Al-Joumhouria newspaper, he was arrested while on his way to an unknown destination by 20 Iranian intelligence officers at Beirut’s Hariri Airport. At the time it was suspected that they stole at least $5 million in Iranian aid funds.

Cases of Lebanese nationals collaborating and spying for Israel are not new.

On Tuesday, Imad al-Zein, a Lebanese Military Tribunal Judge, issued eight arrest warrants against Lebanese citizens charged of collaborating with Israel, Lebanon’s National News Agency reported.

    “Israel denies report Hezbollah CFO defects with funds”

    Will be a developing story no doubt!

    If you were the ones in Israel in charge of hiding this guy, would YOU admit the story to the world?

    So, if the dude was arrested in late September by 20 Iranian intelligence officers (which doesn’t quite make sense given it was in Lebanon), how did he get free to grab the $5 million and run?

    What we do know is Iranians have no more trust in each other than the vicious cartels in Mexico want to do cross-trade. Would you trust any Iranian or cartel spokesman?

    The Obama Administration is demanding that Israel return stolen funds from this peaceful organization.

    Sad thing is that this fake update could actually be true or come true and that people who read will think it is because of the same reason.

    Don’t you just get all giggly when the sub-humans turn their hatred onto each other?

    The Israelis should download whatever information they can from this guy, take the money as partial reparations owed to them and then turn this guy loose at 2:00AM in a back alley in downtown Beirut… with a Star of David tattooed on his chest over his heart.

    Why in the world would the Lebanese and Iranians even report this? The iranians probably offed the guy and are using this as a propaganda tool to incite their people even more against the Jews. A lesson in futility since they have already been incited to beserkdom. Of course, it could be to cover someone’s tracks. No doubt the $5 million disappeared into someone’s pocket if it ever existed in the first place.
