The other, other front in the GWoT

This might give you something to think about.

The Arab Invasion of South America
When students protesting Hugo Chavez’s plan to make himself into a dictator for life protested in Caracas chanting “Freedom”, the riot police that smashed through their ranks were under the supervision of Deputy Justice Minister Tarik or Tareck El-Aissami.

In his early thirties Tarik El-Assimi is one of the younger men to have held such a post. His father Carlos el-Aissami headed the Venezuelan branch of the Baath Party, while his great-uncle Shibli el-Aissami was a close Saddam ally and served as assistant to the Secretary General of the Baath Party.

Before the invasion of Iraq, Carlos El-Aissami held a press conference in which he described himself as a Taliban and called Osama Bin Laden, “the great Mujahedeen, Sheik Osama bin Laden”. The son, Tareck el-Aissimi who headed up Venezuela’s visa department and now serves as deputy justice minister, began as student union leader supervising drug dealing and a car theft ring, while intimidating his rivals. He maintained links to terrorist organizations. With the rise of Chavez, Tariq El-Aissimi’s rise began as well.

When discussing South America, one of the most understated topics is the extent to which Arab terrorist networks have developed a foothold from Mexico to Uruguay. Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian Arab immigrants have infiltrated the economic, business and political lives of South American nations spawning crime rings, drug smuggling and political corruption. The bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Argentina would not have been possible without the complicity of Argentina’s Syrian immigrant President Carlos Menem.

The simple list of Arab South American Presidents is startling in and of itself. These include Abdalá Bucaram, the Arab President of Ecuador. Antonio Saca, the current Palestinian Arab President of Ecuador. Jacobo Majluta, the former Lebanese Arab President of the Dominican Republic. Jamil Mahuad, the former Lebanese Arab President of Ecuador. Carlos Menem, the former Syrian Arab President of Argentina. Said Musa, the current Palestinian Arab Prime Minister of Belize. Edward Seaga, the former Lebanese Arab Prime Minister of Jamaica. Julio Cesar Turbay, the former Lebanese Arab President of Colombia. Carlos Flores Facusse, the Palestinian Arab former President of Honduras.

See, the thing about a world-wide diaspora is that it actually is world wide!

Now let’s kick it up another notch, and think a little bit about terrorists collaborating with criminal gangs. It happens. And it’s been going on for quite some time:

Located where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay meet, the area is home to roughly 20,000 Middle Eastern immigrants—mostly from Lebanon and Syria—and has long been a hotbed for terrorist fundraising, arms and drug trafficking, counterfeiting and money laundering. By moving freely through the region’s porous borders, operatives from the terrorist organizations Hizbollah, Hamas, and according to some reports, al-Qaeda, are able to conduct arms-for-drugs deals with secular Latin American terrorist groups like the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and Peru’s Sendero Luminosos (Shining Path). All told, U.S. officials believe that between $10 and $12 billion is funneled through the tri-border region each year, with Hizbollah among the prime beneficiaries.

So, do you think it would be better to clean up our own hemisphere first, or keep pretending that all the action is over there in sandland?

... and another year goes by with no wall and very little border security.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
