Darrell Issa comes Very Close to Calling Eric Holder a Liar

Rep. Darrell Issa's website has posted some pretty strong words directed at Eric Holder after the latter testified at a House Judiciary committee hearing about the Project Gunrunner scandal. Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, grilled Holder while sitting on the Judiciary Committee and is obviously not satisfied with the responses he got from Holder, whose testimony was suspect on several levels. He denied knowing about Operation Fast and Furious until just 'a few weeks' ago and would not answer questions relative to who authorized the program.

The title of the post at the Oversight & Government Reform website is titled: 'What Attorney General Holder Won't Tell on Controversial Gun Operation, Documents Do'

From Issa's website:
At a House Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa confronted Attorney General Eric Holder on the DOJ’s Operation Fast and Furious, a highly controversial operation where federal authorities facilitated the purchase of assault weapons for drug cartels and chose not to interdict them before being transported to Mexico.

While Attorney General Holder was unwilling to provide answer about who at the Department of Justice authorized, knew about, and even whether he still defended Operation Fast and Furious, three new documents provide information that Attorney General Holder did not address in response to questions posed by Rep. Issa.
Two of those documents are memos from early 2010 that implicate Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer and US Attorney in Arizona Dennis Burke as being well aware of the operation that killed two American border agents and an untold number of innocent Mexican civilians.

Hezbollah has Base in Mexico, working with Drug Cartels

A local San Diego television station interviewed a former U.S. intelligence agent about what's really going on in Mexico and Hezbollah has been putting down roots there for some time. The group is also working closely with drug cartels. We've seen signs of this when you consider the tunnels and beheadings; both are tactics used in the Middle East. The agent also says that Hezbollah's training is far more advanced than that of al-Qaeda and is on par with the training of the Chinese, Cubans, and Russians. Of course, this adds an entirely new dimension to the Project Gunrunner scandal.

Via Channel 10 News in San Diego:
A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle East has established another home base across the border in Mexico.

"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."

Some of the group's bombings include the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.

However, the group is now active much closer to San Diego.
"We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico," the agent told 10News.
Apparently, over those 15 or 20 years, Hezbollah has been developing strong alliances with the drug cartels:
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.

He told 10News the group receives cartel cash and protection in exchange for Hezbollah expertise.

"From money laundering to firearms training and explosives training," the agent said.
If the ATF and - increasingly likely, the Justice Department - allowed thousands of weapons to 'walk' into Mexico, how much of a stretch is it to consider that some of those guns ended up in the hands of Hezbollah?

Remember, in addition to the Project Gunrunner scandal, our own Defense and State Departments are sending much more powerful weaponry down to Mexico and Latin America that is ending up in the hands of cartels and, dare I say it, Hezbollah?

Is 'Son of Hamas' a Very Dangerous Infiltrator?

Last year, Mosab Hassan Yousef made the talk show circuit to promote his book, 'Son of Hamas.' As the son of a founding member of Hamas who allegedly converted to Christianity, his story was in demand - and he, in grave danger. According to a former Muslim terrorist who speaks Arabic, Yousef's words in that language paint an entirely different picture. Walid Shoebt has translated Yousef's statements in Arabic into English and insists the 'Son of Hamas' is an infiltrator and enemy of Israel.

Shoebat has written about his findings at Pajamas Media:
Mosab did not convert to what the West would recognize as Christianity, but to a fiery, Palestinian brand of the faith that is vehemently anti-Israel. According to Mosab, his main goal in coming to the U.S. is to infiltrate the main source of international support for Israel: the American church. From an interview with Al-Arabiya:

"During my tours in universities and even churches, [I found] the real support for Israel stems from the church in the West. … We need to understand the difference between 'revenge' and 'resistance' and once the Palestinians do, we will have our victory against Israel."

Activists like Mosab know very well that Western media rarely translate their doublespeak. He continues:

"Israel is the problem and as an occupation it needs to end. … There are many ways to do this besides the coward explosive operations."

Mosab’s formula? Infiltrate the West with his book:

"This will be the first time in history that a Palestinian book will find success so that the Western reader can see for himself the reality of what goes on over there. People in the West do not know what happens over there."
Shoebat then translates Mosab's Arabic from when the latter appeared on an Arabic-language program known as 'Daring Question.' This ain't pretty:
Perhaps the most shocking revelation: Mosab asks Arabs not to report terrorist activity. The host of Daring Question asked a caller:

"If you were in Mosab’s position and have two choices: either someone from Hamas will be killed, or school children in a bus will be killed, will you report it?"

The Arab Christian caller vacillated, then Mosab spoke:

"If I was in your shoes, you should not report it to Israel. I do not encourage anyone to give information to Israel or collaborate with Israel. If anyone hears me right now and they are in relation to Israeli security I advise them to work for the interest of their own people — number one — and do not work with the [Israeli] enemy against the interest of our people. They should collaborate with the Palestinian Authority only."
Shoebat has successfully exposed some prominent Muslim people with nefarious intentions by finding their words on Arabic outlets, including Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.
