Obama’s Iran legacy is Trump’s nightmare: Iranian paramilitary sleeper cells nest in U.S.

Photograph: Iran’s proxy paramilitary outfit is none other than the terrorist members of Hezbollah. Although not part of the Sunni Muslim groups such as Al-Qaeda or ISIS, they have been known to work with them against a common enemy — the Jews and Americans.

American intelligence agencies possess a growing amount of evidence that the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist group maintains a network of sleeper cells in the United States, according to a new report. While former President Barack Obama and his minions – John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Valeria Jarrett, etc. – paint a victorious picture based on their own claims, but in reality they left the new President, Donald J. Trump, a nightmare in the making.

Hezbollah or “the Party of God” is based in southern Lebanon and has long served as Iran’s way of Islamizing a formerly Christian country while also stoking the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and periodically launching rockets into northern Israel.

In fact, the Shiite terror group has been building its presence in South America since the late 1980s and was able to make inroads on the North American continent during the Obama years, terror analysts say. According to testimony given to the US House of Representatives Armed Services Committee by Marine General Peter Pace, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 2007, even Hamas has joined Hezbollah and al-Qaeda in the Triple Frontier Zone in Latin America where the borders of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay converge.

Meanwhile, Air Force General Douglas Fraser, commanding officer of the U.S. Southern Command, said in 2011 that Iran has significantly increased the number of Iranian embassies in the region while building “cultural centers” and mosques in more than 15 Latin American countries. Intelligence sources claim the Iranian built Mosques teach a radical brand of Islam to the impoverished people in Latin America. Gen. Fraser has already reported to the Senate Armed Services Committee that military intelligence confirmed Iranians hosted heads of state from three countries: Bolivia, Guyana and Venezuela. 

Iranian and Hezbollah operatives have cultivated and consolidated operating bases in South America, especially in the Triple Frontier Zone. With a large Muslim population featuring significant numbers of Hezbollah sympathizers, the region is ripe for recruitment, arms smuggling and drug trafficking. Hezbollah continues to exploit other Lebanese Shiite diaspora communities, including in the United States, to strengthen its presence worldwide. 

In addition, Hezbollah’s secret services have been described as “one of the best in the world”, and have even infiltrated the Israeli army. Hezbollah’s secret services collaborate with the Lebanese intelligence agencies and the Iranian spy agencies and its military.

If these killers aren’t afraid to target or assassinate prosecutors and cops, or they are willing to confront National Guard troops, then who in America is really safe from terrorists, murderers, rapists and other offenders, especially when anyone wishing to address the problem is labeled a racist or xenophobe.

Americans can probably only count on President Donald Trump and a few congressional members to even debate the issues of illegal immigration or border security honestly. What sense does it make to inspect shipping containers in New York seaports while ignoring the vulnerabilities existing on our borders?
