A police officer runs after an attack on police patrol trucks in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

A Hezbollah-like car bomb explodes in a border town as a congresswoman asks Homeland Security about links between the terrorist group and Mexican drug cartels. This is more than an immigration problem.

Car bombs are a terrorist specialty and not a drug cartel modus operandi. The heavily armed cartels are more into shootings and kidnappings. So the car bomb that exploded Thursday in Ciudad Juarez, near a federal police headquarters, killing four, was either a change in tactics for the cartels or a sign of teaming up with a terrorist group, one of which could be Iran-linked Hezbollah.

Officials called it a well-planned trap using what may have been the first time that traffickers have used a car bomb since the start of a military-led offensive against drug cartels. It also may be the first indication of Hezbollah’s growing influence south of the border.

Erick Stakelbeck of the Investigative Project, a counterterrorism research group, says Hezbollah has established a base in the Americas in what is known as the Tri-Border area, where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay meet. As he reports, “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.”

Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., recently sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security asking it to form a task force to investigate growing ties between Hezbollah and the drug cartels as well as growing evidence of a Hezbollah presence in Mexico.

“We have seen their cooperation in countries across South America, particularly the tri-border area of South America (bounded by Puerto Iguazu, Argentina; Ciudad del Este, Paraguay; and Foz do Iguanzo, Brazil). Hezbollah operates almost like a Mafia family in the region, often demanding protection money and ‘taxes’ from local inhabitants,” Myrick said in the letter.

Last year we reported that Colombian officials were investigating the Medellin-based Office of Envigado cartel as a Hezbollah front organization. This came after the arrest in Bogota of Chekri Mahmoud Harb, a suspected go-between for Hezbollah and the Taliban in Colombia.

According to an April 30 report compiled by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, “International terrorist groups, including Hamas and Hezbollah, have also reportedly raised funding for these terrorist activities through linkages formed with (drug-trafficking organizations) in South America, particularly those operating in the tri-border area of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.”

Samir Khan, a 24-year-old North Carolina man who left for Yemen last October, is believed to be editor-in-chief of Inspire, a newly launched online magazine that seeks to recruit members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula

A young North Carolina man who has moved to Yemen appears to be the editor-in-chief of a flashy new Al Qaeda magazine that features bomb-making instructions and an article by Usama bin Laden, U.S. officials said Monday.

Samir Khan, a 24-year-old American citizen who left the country last October, is believed to be the top editor of Inspire, a newly launched online magazine that seeks to recruit members of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – the notorious terror group’s Yemeni branch that is linked to the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound U.S. flight last Christmas.

The 67-page online publication, written in colloquial English and launched last month, features flashy graphics and punchy headlines like “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” as well an article on global warming said to be written by Bin Laden.

Anwar Al-Awlaki, an America-born cleric linked to several attacks on the U.S., including the Foot Hood massacre and the failed Times Square car bomb plot, has held a prominent role with the site and was thought to be its key proponent. Al-Awlaki, designated by the U.S. Treasury Department on Friday as a key leader in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, recently posted an article on the site titled “May Our Souls be Sacrificed for You,” in which he called for the Seattle cartoonist who launched “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” to be executed.

A Border Patrol tipster e-mailed me about this earlier today. New Black Panther Party blowhard Malik Zulu Shabazz was turned away by Canada for his hate-mongering views:

The leader of the U.S.-based New Black Panther Party, whose invitation to Toronto angered Jewish groups, was denied entry into the country Tuesday morning, the Black Youth Taking Action said.

Malik Zulu Shabazz was denied entry by customs officials apparently because of a minor criminal record — a misdemeanour five years ago, members of the group told reporters.

They said they invited Shabazz to speak on issues such as establishing black-focused schools and changing curriculums to include contributions by black people.

Shabazz had been scheduled to attend a rally in front of the Ontario legislature Tuesday afternoon and deliver a lecture at Ryerson University later in the day.

The group held a raucous and angry news conference at Ryerson, lashing out at what they said was the role of the “Jewish lobby” in keeping Shabazz out of the country.

Glad to see that our neighbors to the north are paying attention to his hateful spewing.

“it’s not that conservatives are not open minded, it’s that we believe liberals are just wrong”

Next, one Malik Shabazz, leader of the “New Black Panther Party,” refuses to apologize for lynching the innocent Duke lacrosse players–and then proceeds to call me a “political prostitute” and mouthpiece for whites. Like I haven’t heard that a half-million times before.

FOOTNOTE: New Black Panther Party endorses Barack Obama for President

In a 1993 speech condemned by the U.S. Congress and Senate, Muhammad, lionized on the NBPP site, referred to Jews as “bloodsuckers,” labeled the pope a “no-good cracker” and advocated the murder of white South Africans who would not leave the nation subsequent to a 24-hour warning.

MANNING, S.C. — In his first campaign appearance, South Carolina’s surprising U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene avoided any major gaffes Sunday as he hit his three major themes of jobs, education and justice.

The speech started off with a joke and ended with Greene timidly waving, a shy smile spreading across his face as he got a standing ovation before a friendly audience in his hometown of Manning.

~Snippets…

* Greene’s 6 1/2 minute speech at the local NAAP’s monthly meeting was mostly serious. Left out was any mention of his suggestion earlier this month that creating a line of action figures modeled after him could give South Carolinians jobs. In their place came platitudes familiar to anyone who has heard a stump speech.

* He opened by joking that he was not only the best candidate for Senate, but also the best choice for one of next year’s NAACP Image Awards.

* But beating those kind of odds should be familiar to anyone who reads the Bible, said Manning NAACP president Bobby Fleming.

“It was not the people who put David before Goliath,” Fleming said. “It was God who gave him the opportunity to defeat the giant.”

~ GAG! Spare me with using anything holy…

Full story…

~CNN

The speech, given at a meeting of the local chapter of the NAACP, was voters’ first glimpse of Greene’s campaign vision as he mounts an unlikely challenge against Republican incumbent Sen. Jim DeMint.

“South Carolina and America cannot afford six more years of my opponent,” Greene said of DeMint. “We cannot let my opponent keep this country hostage.”

~ It’s obvious someone else wrote his speech, most likely the NAACP

~Blah-blah story here…

~From Gateway Pundit…

True democrat Alvin Greene will hold his first rally today in Manning, South Carolina.
The NAACP is sponsoring the rally.
WLTX reported:

South Carolina’s Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, Alvin Greene, is getting ready for his first campaign rally.

Greene is scheduled to speak Sunday at the monthly meeting of the local NAACP branch in his hometown of Manning.

Greene has said he campaigned in the weeks leading up to his shocking June 8 primary win, when the unemployed Army veteran beat a longtime politician with the full backing of the Democratic party.

But he hasn’t said where he campaigned, and no one outside of his barber shop can recall Greene trying to woo voters.
