Egypt Announces Plans to Strengthen Ties With Hezbollah Terror Group


Arab Spring.
Egypt announced plans to strengthen ties with the Hezbollah terrorist group in Lebanon.
Russia Today reported:

Egypt will develop its ties with Hezbollah, recognizing it as a “real political and military force,” said an Egyptian official to Lebanese press. The announcement signals a U-turn in policy where Egypt had accused the group of operating terror cells.

In an interview with Lebanese publication the Daily Star, Egyptian ambassador to Lebanon Ashraf Hamdy said that his country’s newly-elected Islamist government would build “tight” relations with Hezbollah.

He stated that the ruling Muslim Brotherhood was “stretching out its hand” to its neighbors with a view to developing its foreign policy and furthering interests.

“You cannot discuss politics in Lebanon without having a relationship with Hezbollah. It is a real force on the ground. It has a big political and military influence in Lebanon,” Hamdy stressed to the Daily Star.

He went on to deny reports that a delegation from the political group had already visited Egypt for negotiations, but conceded that he had met with Hezbollah political bureau members for discussions “to understand each other better.”

    Congressman blasts Obama’s decision to ‘arm’ extremists

    [Congressman Ted Poe, R-Texas, says it is irresponsible for
    Barack Obama to be “arming” a country that may be aiming
    for the destruction of Israel with a shipment of 20 F-16
    fighter jets.]

    Obama: Hamas and Hezbollah have “legitimate claims”

    [The U.S. needs a foreign policy that “looks at the root causes of problems and dangers.” Obama compared Hezbollah to Hamas. Both need to be compelled to understand that “they’re going down a blind alley with violence that weakens their legitimate claims.” He knows these movements aren’t going away anytime soon (“Those missiles aren’t going to dissolve”), but “if they decide to shift, we’re going to recognize that. That’s an evolution that should be recognized.”]

    oh, you mean that doesn’t make sense to you either?? /s/

    bottom line:

    EARTH TO OBAMA – THEY HAVEN’T EVOLVED, AS A MATTER OF
    FACT, UNDER YOUR”LEADERSHIP”, THEY’RE DEVOLVING GAH!!

    btw, the following is connected as well.. 😡

    Ahmadinejad, Chavez and the Obama Doctrine

    [Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wrapped up a two day visit to Iran
    with a flurry of official agreements and rhetorical broadsides denouncing
    the United States. Chavez, visiting Iran for the ninth time as President,
    lauded his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and proclaimed
    that bilateral ties are “solid and very, very deep.” Ahmadinejad stated
    that “Iran and Venezuela are united to establish a new world order
    based on humanity and justice.” The Iranian president, always eager to
    make a veiled threat, warned: “The enemies of our nations will go one
    day. This is the promise of God and the promise of God will definitely be
    fulfilled.”]

    also connected to Bill Ayers, nay,
    well connected to Bill Ayers.. 🙁

    Islamic Terrorist Groups Plot Attacks
    on US From Mexico & Latin America

    [ Terrorists from several Middle Eastern groups have infiltrated Latin
    American countries — especially Mexico — in order to plot and carry
    out attacks against the United States, according to an alarming
    exposé broadcast this week by the world’s largest Spanish news
    network.

    While the news media in Latin American countries are covering this
    ongoing story, the U.S. media is delivering scant coverage — or no
    coverage at all — a U.S. law enforcement commander told the Law
    Enforcement Examiner.

    Univision, a multi-national Spanish-language TV network, this week
    aired a disturbing documentary titled, “La Amenaza Irani” (Iranian
    Threat), The documentary uses undercover, never- before- seen video
    footage to illustrate how Iran’s growing political, economic and military
    ties to Latin America threaten U.S. security, according to a blog
    published by the Washington, DC- based watchdog group Judicial
    Watch. ]

    Muslim Brotherhood ‘infiltrated’ U.S. gov’t

    [He said neither Republicans nor Democrats want to protest
    too loudly over concerns of being branded intolerant.

    Boykin said Republicans proved their weakness on the issue by roundly
    condemning Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., for sounding the alarm
    on this issue and specifically wondering about the Brotherhood ties of
    Huma Abedin, a top assistant to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    He also slammed the sequestration plan that has the military on course
    for an additional $500 billion in cuts over the next decade, saying that
    will weaken every branch of the service and that a naive rationale is
    behind it all.]

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S.
    security policy explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez.
    Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network
    including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives,
    figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical
    regime in Tehran
    – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards
    the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.

    [Iran has expanded its terror network and now has tens of thousands
    of agents in Latin America, according to a former Iranian official who
    has witnessed the regime’s crimes against humanity inside Iran and
    has knowledge of its terror network targeting the West.

    In interviews with the opposition outside Iran, the official revealed that
    more than 40,000 of the regime’s security, intelligence and propaganda
    forces successfully have been placed over time in Bolivia, Brazil,
    Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela.]

    Make no mistake about it, the two are mortal enemies.

    They both, however appeal to the antisemitic inherited appeal of the leftist lot who will give money (and a helluva’ it) to whoever bring shiah and sunni mahommedan terror groups toghether.

    There is one thing who unites those animals toghether, and we all know what: the Koran and their messianic bloodlust to the jews. Rest will follow.

    Let’s face it: MB and Hezbollah as allies?? Lol! They do however have a common hate and while pretend to be buddy-buddy with each other and collect US taxpayer mony certainly won’t hurt.

    “The Project”

    The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”

    [One might be led to think that if international law enforcement authorities and Western intelligence agencies had discovered a twenty-year old document revealing a top-secret plan developed by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world to launch a program of “cultural invasion” and eventual conquest of the West that virtually mirrors the tactics used by Islamists for more than two decades, that such news would scream from headlines published on the front pages and above the fold of the New York Times, Washington Post, London Times, Le Monde, Bild, and La Repubblica.

    If that’s what you might think, you would be wrong.

    In fact, such a document was recovered in a raid by Swiss authorities in November 2001, two months after the horror of 9/11. Since that time information about this document, known in counterterrorism circles as “The Project”, and discussion regarding its content has been limited to the top-secret world of Western intelligence communities. Only through the work of an intrepid Swiss journalist, Sylvain Besson of Le Temps, and his book published in October 2005 in France, La conquête de l’Occident: Le projet secret des Islamistes (The Conquest of the West: The Islamists’ Secret Project), has information regarding The Project finally been made public. One Western official cited by Besson has described The Project as “a totalitarian ideology of infiltration which represents, in the end, the greatest danger for European societies.”]

    The Muslim Brotherhood “Project” (Continued)

    [This report presents a global vision of a worldwide strategy for Islamic policy [or “political Islam”]. Local Islamic policies will be drawn up in the different regions in accordance with its guidelines. It acts, first of all, to define the points of departure of that policy, then to set up the components and the most important procedures linked to each point of departure; finally we suggest several missions, by way of example only, may Allah protect us.]

    they consider homicidal suicide missions
    to be an allahu akbar poligious honor..

    we do not know our enemy, we believe in ourselves, ergo, like
    i’ve stated long before Obama, we are on a suicide mission of
    our own via aiding and abetting our enemy, the problem is, we
    don’t even know it, because we not only think we can play God
    and change the minds & hearts of the inherent evil intent that
    exists in our sworn enemy into good.. that’s why Obama can so
    easily transition himself into a dictator, he is the “like some sort
    of god” leader above it all that we worship in ourselves.. 🙁

    bottom line: our vanity will not only kill
    US, but our goodness will not save US,

    God helps those who help themselves is logic, it does not
    mean God will do battle for US, it means we must fight for
    good against evil..

    how dumbed down are we?? verily..

    US Agents Cut Deal with Mexican Drug Cartel, Court Documents Say

    [U.S. federal agents allegedly cut a deal with the Sinaloa drug cartel
    that allowed it to traffic tons of narcotics across the border, in exchange
    for information about rival cartels, according to documents filed in federal
    court.

    The allegations are made by Vicente Zambada-Niebla, a top ranking
    cartel boss extradited to the U.S. last year on drug charges. He is a
    close associate of Mexico’s most wanted man, Joaquín “El Chapo”
    Guzmán and the son of Ismael “Mayo” Zambada-García.]

    A quick perusal of articles about crime and violence along the
    U.S.-Mexico border on this website alone should lead to the
    inevitable conclusion of a resounding NO!]

    From one of bg’s #8 links:

    They are recognized by many experts as the ‘A’ team of Muslim terrorist organizations,” a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.

    The former agent, referring to Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, “They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings.”

    “We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico,” the agent told 10News.

    Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, U.S. policy has focused on al-Qaida and its offshoots.

    “They are more shooters than thinkers … it’s a lot of muscles, courage, desire but not a lot of training,” the agent said, referring to al-Qaida.

    Hezbollah, he said, is far more advanced.

    “Their operators are far more skilled … they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans,” he said. “I consider Hezbollah much more dangerous in that sense because of strategic thinking; they think more long-term.”

    Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then Central America, along with their sometime rival, sometime ally Hamas.

    Sooo…part of that “long-term” thinking – strategery – might include Hillary’s HUMA or even Barry’s VALERIE, perhaps?

    Fast and Furious smells even more. Barry sent – and LOST – those guns to the drug cartels? More like those guns were destined for Hezbollah.** Another reason to tell Barry, “That’s right. You ain’t takin’ our guns, TRAITOR.*** In fact, we plan to buy even more.”

    **The agent, who has spent years deep undercover in Mexico, said Hezbollah is partnering with drug organizations, but which ones is not clear at this time.

    The Terrorist Camps Around The U.S.

    [They may be living right next door…

    Scattered across the United States, unknown to all but a handful of citizens, are 35 Islamic terrorist training compounds known as “Muslims of America.” Under the leadership of a radical Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, Muslims of America has thousands of devoted followers who are being groomed for HOMEGROWN JIHAD.

    In never-before-seen video footage, the Christian Action Network exposes these dangerous terrorist compounds and reveals for the first time a secret training tape in which American Muslims are recruited to “join one of the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare”… right here in America! They are called “Soldiers of Allah” and they are trained in explosives, kidnapping, murder, firing weapons, and guerilla warfare. They are told, “Act like you are a friend, then kill him just like from the book.”]

    Thanks to bg — that’s what I went looking for…location of the camps —

    anyone else interested, hit her first link at #27 and watch the very compelling video.

    How comforting…FBI told Colorado governor they couldn’t do anything about the camp in his state when he contacted them about getting rid of it. Orders, they said, from “Washington”…

    Hearing Sheik Gilani came here to establish those terrorist camps in 1980 from Paahkeestaahn, reminded me our Barry headed for the big “P” in ’81 with his college pal…ya think he was after their brand of “radicals” — hey! he claims that’s who he’s usually drawn to..
