For years, experts who already have their hands full with the persistent threat of Al Qaeda have warned of the rise of Hezbollah in our midst.
The day has arrived.
Mexican authorities have rolled up a Hezbollah network being built in Tijuana, right across the border from Texas and closer to American homes than the terrorist hideouts in the Bekaa Valley are to Israel.
Its goal, according to a Kuwaiti newspaper that reported on the investigation: to strike targets in Israel and the West.
Over the years, Hezbollah – rich with Iranian oil money and narcocash – has generated revenue by cozying up with Mexican cartels to smuggle drugs and people into the U.S.
