Gee wiz...We try and overthrow a country's democratically-elected government, and they repay us like this? Not very grateful.
Margarita Island is a tourist resort - There might be some muslim immigrants there. NO ONE has ever made the claim that Margarita island is a Hezbollah haven.
Brian - we have not seen all this activity because Hezbollah does operate in SOuth America.
Timing? During the 2004 elections there were a bunch of orange terror alert warnings.
Sebastian Otella makes the claim that there are a lot of Lebanese in Argentina and in South America. - He FAILS to mention that MOST latin American countries have had CHRISTIANS of Lebanese, Palestinian and Syria descent that have fled persecution and the instability. They WOULD NOT be raising money and joining Hezbollah
Can he give the names of these people that he uses as sources?
Hezbollah has been in South America for years (remember the bombings in Buenos Aires). Looks like a new bunch is on the way...
