They’re Here: Two Hezbollah Jihadists Arrested In New York: “Pre-Operational Surveillance Of Terror Targets, Extensive Bomb Making Training, Grenade Launchers…”

Following the methodically planned San Bernadino massacre in December of 2015 we warned that more attacks were coming and that terrorists have more than likely already already infiltrated the United States in an effort to identify potential targets and execute future strikes on American citizens.

This month, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Attorney’s Office and other federal and local agencies have confirmed our suspicions.

According to a press release from the U.S.  Department of Justice, in early June the FBI arrested two individuals connected to the Lebanese-based Hezbollah terrorist organization. While the group considers itself a political party, the United States, the Arab league and scores of others have designated it a dangerous terrorist organization. The paramilitary wing of Hezbollah is referred to as the Jihad Council and is believed to be behind numerous terrorist actions across the globe.

Acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said:  “Today, we announce serious terrorism charges against two men who allegedly trained with and supported the Islamic Jihad Organization, a component of the foreign terrorist organization Hizballah.  Recruited as Hizballah operatives, Samer El Debek and Ali Kourani allegedly received military-style training, including in the use of weapons like rocket-propelled grenade launchers and machine guns for use in support of the group’s terrorist mission.  At the direction of his Hizballah handlers, El Debek allegedly conducted missions in Panama to locate the U.S. and Israeli Embassies and to assess the vulnerabilities of the Panama Canal and ships in the Canal.  Kourani allegedly conducted surveillance of potential targets in America, including military and law enforcement facilities in New York City. 

The two men, one of whom, frighteningly, is a naturalized U.S. citizen, allegedly provided material support for Hezbollah operations in the United States and Central America. Both appear to have received military-style training, which they then put to use when scouting law enforcement and military targets within the United States.

Moreover, it appears that both men are being charged with weapons violations involving the use of rocket propelled grenade launchers and machine guns, often the weapons of choice for Jihadi-style attacks in the middle east, as well as against Western targets.

KOURANI was arrested in the Bronx for providing, attempting, and conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah; receiving and conspiring to receive military-type training from Hizballah; a related weapons offense that is alleged to have involved, among other weapons, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and machine guns; violating and conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (“IEEPA”); and naturalization fraud to facilitate an act of international terrorism

EL DEBEK was arrested in Livonia, Michigan, outside of Detroit, for providing, attempting, and conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah; receiving and conspiring to receive military-type training from Hizballah; use of weapons in connection with a crime of violence that is alleged to have involved, among other weapons, explosives, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and machine guns; and violating and conspiring to violate IEEPA.

According to the FBI, their scouting activities were part of standard Hezbollah pre-planning operations.

As well, one of the individuals has received extensive bomb-making training, highlighting the possibility that any future attacks would likely have considered the utilization of remotely detonated  improvised explosive devices and/or suicide bombers similar to what we saw in Manchester, England last month.

As part of his work for Hezbollah, Kourani and others allegedly conducted covert surveillance of potential targets, including U.S. military bases and Israeli military personnel here in New York City.  Pre-operational surveillance is one of the hallmarks of Hezbollah in planning for future attacks.  As alleged, Kourani, on at least two occasions, received sophisticated military training overseas, including the use of a rocket propelled grenade. In addition, El Debek is charged in an unrelated complaint, for allegedly possessing extensive bomb making training received from Hezbollah.

We’ve repeatedly warned of the security threat posed by Jihadists to the citizens of the United States.

These two individuals are essentially a scouting party looking for targets to strike. But it should be clear that they are only a small part of a much broader operation designed to target the United States, as noted by Red Flag News:

The FBI did a good job this time around catching these men before any attack occurred, but it just goes to show that Islamic terrorists are operating actively in the United States. And it’s not a coincidence that both come from a country with a long history of terrorist activity.

If there are two scouts, then one can credibly assume that there are other operatives lying in wait to execute Jihadi attacks on the American people. In fact, it’s been reported that operatives from a number of terrorist groups and/or foreign governments have been smuggled into the United States through our porous southern border.

Islamic extremists are constantly innovating their methods, including a recent report indicating that terror groups are working on laptop bombs and chemical weapons of mass destruction.

They are determined. They are supported by extensive global terror networks. And they have no qualms about killing you, your family and your friends.

      it’s spreading. we contained it to the middle east for a while… until the shitheads in Europe and here opened the border flood gates.

      now we’ll pay the price.

        I thought the terrorists were in Langley VA, I’m pretty sure thats their headquarters, but maybe I’m wrong.

          SHTF needs to stop the opportunistic jingoism and peddling of false flag warm up propaganda. ISIS is the enemy- not Hezbollah. NEVER would they come to US to attack, and thus justify attack on their sponsors, IRAN. But ISRAEL would do it- posing as them. Like w 911 & USS Liberty. In fact, we can bet articles like this planted in the MSM zio owned press are the start of such a jew campaign.
          When will the Useless Idiots learn???
          WTFU and back off the bullshit. Quit aiding the suckerdom and stupidity of Americans.
          “Hezbollah attack”=ISRAEL “Mista’aravim”. Its an entire IDF unit dedicated to just this- dressing/passing as Arabs to frame them

        Yes it’s spreading.

        Islam was stopped at the battle of Tours. The head of the beast, the Muslim King, was mortally wounded, but oil has breathed new life into Islam, hurt not the oil.

        The beast has comeback to life, who is likes to the beast.

        The beast will bring the world to the brink of destruction.

        Don’t expect a killer volcano, don’t expect an EMP, don’t expect asteroids, don’t expect to be nuked. Expect Islam.

      • ImagineIt

        Imagine, just for a moment, if those folks went after the few puppet masters that – so easily – pull their strings (indicating how little the “shitheads” are able to think for themselves) instead of the clueless public? Approached from a different point of view, if those folks did such a thing they would likely risk gaining a favorable opinion among the public. Interesting thought exercise.

        Hezbollah does not attack civilians, nor does it wear masks or behead people or torture. They wear uniforms and conduct themselves in an honorable manner. They are greatly feared by Israel. Israel has probably conducted a false flag to besmirch Hezbollah’s’ reputation.

      Holy war is expensive. Qatar has been accused of supporting Hezbollah and other terrorist groups. The Qatar crisis is more important than most Americans realize. In the past, Turkey has been a stabilizing force but that’s changing. I believe that a war is coming that will draw even more nations into war. The more war in the middle east, the more refugees. The more refugees, the more terrorists. The large settlements of Muslims in cities like London and Detroit allow them to blend in. This wider war will bring a flood of refugees that will far exceed that of the wars in Syria and Iraq. The bible in Ezekiel 38 and 39 describes a Gog-Magog war and it seems this could be it.

        The CIA and Modsad are the world largest network of Jihadists out there. The 5 dancing Parasites on 911 is proof enough for me. Oh but they get a pass and are considered horoes back in their stolen squatter land of Palestine. Oh the real enemy is plenty here alright. They run TV networks, banks even our money system and Courts. Wake up sheep!! If you work for the FBI and even mention the word Gews you are blackballed and demoted. Our government is one big FRAUD. Oh sure, the FBI needs to catch a real terrorist now and then to keep their Billion Dollars budgets flush with cash and for payroll. Id rather just hire the Mafia to kill every enemy here in the US for a fraction of the cost. Or just hunt and dispose of them ourselves for a bounty. Sign me up!!

      Comey is responsible! They and the deep state, MSM, have been running cover for the previous regime who funded and supplied all their needs. How much money did they fly over to Iran and give to the PA, MB, and ISIS affiliated groups? Billions and billions! They have opened the doors to hell and there can be no closing! I too have been saying and seeing this at close quarters from before 911! Why is the Justice Department not investigating and prosecuting their treasonous behavior?

      The terrorists do not need to be smuggled in. They are coming in legally with protection from the democratic bureaucrats, judges and lawmakers, including RINOs. They are here, just waiting to get their orders from the Califate.

    9. laeagle

      I believe, the previous regime was so intent on harming this country that many of them are still embedded in the government, including the legal system, military, police, and intelligence services. Some of them were writing policies for the previous regime. There needs to be a thorough house-cleaning and review of all policies and appointments from the previous regime. It is a monumental task, for sure. It must be done!

      Americans who call themselves Christian refuse to answer this question:

      In 2016, the US military dropped 26,171 bombs on seven nations (Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan) last year. Millions of people were killed, maimed, displaced or otherwise harmed. Specifically which of these seven nations would Jesus Christ have supported bombing? This is not a rhetorical question.

      Pastor Chuck Baldwin dares to speak the truth. Payback will literally be Hell.

      In 1965 90% of Americans were white of European descent.
      We had blacks whose ancestors came here before the mid 1800’s.

      We lived quiet peaceful relatively happily with not much thought to the Middle East.

      Then the “you know who” pushed for the 1965 immigration act.

      Today is June 19, 2017.

      We have Senators being shot down in baseball parks.
      And anchor baby’s growing up and planning to bomb our Military.

      I can’t get too upset that these Hezbollah wanted to attack Israeli Military here in NY.
      What are Israeli Military doing in NY?

      If we Americans were not waging proxy wars for Isreal maybe Hezbollah would not retaliate in this manner. Recall that after beheading an Englishman, a terrorist said they would stop when English soldiers stopped attacking them in their Countries.

      We, Americans need to repeal the 1965 Immigration Act.
      Send all the “Refugees” back where they came from.
      Build the damn wall.
      Stop giving welfare benefits, jobs, health care, housing, schooling, to illegals and start arresting people who break the law.
      Get out of the Middle East and let Isreal fight their own wars.

      After that we can start working on our own problems. We have plenty of them.

      By now, our Israeli Overlord wanted Syria to be wasted and Iran being ‘Shocked and Awed’ by their GOYIM slaves in the USA.

      Israel is mad as Hell that hasn’t happened, since they want to invade Lebanon AGAIN to steal their River Litani, but Hezbollah is standing in the way, and the IDF might be the best when it comes to shooting women and children, but when it comes to fighting MEN, they run away like scared bunnies, so in steps the FBI to start a war against Hezbollah for our Israeli Masters.

          The Marines were there because Israel went on a mass-murder spree against Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.
          Israel KNEW about the bombing but did NOTHING to alert the USA.

      So how did they import gernade, rpg, and full autos into usa? Training with pvc pipes is more likely. Trust me it is quite easy to get an explosives tax stamp from the atf pretty much same process and background checks as purchasing a class 3 gun or supressor although finding any rocket launchers or gernades for sale in USA is near impossible. I’ve seen just 1 gernade on the black market in my entire life and the seller was arrested. The news will call a firework mortar a rocket launcher or hand gernade due to ignorance just like calling semi auto an automatic or assault rifle

      How the ME mess first came about, thanks to that war criminal Kissinger:

      Kissinger’s first meeting with Assad on December 15, 1973, lasted six and a half hours. Assad astounded his guest, the first U.S. secretary of state in his capital since 1953, by agreeing to exclude his Soviet patrons from the discussions on the understanding that the U.S. alone could influence Israel. Kissinger surprised Assad with the claim that his major obstacle emanated from those who control “the financial capital and means of communications” in the U.S., not so subtle code for the Zionist lobby that had yet to achieve the influence it would wield in later years. The Syrian transcripts contain Kissinger’s numerous disparaging remarks about the lobby, but, Shaaban writes, “The U.S. record makes no mention of him citing ‘financial capital’ or ‘means of communication.’”

      The most ignorant line is in the final paragraph:

      “They are supported by extensive global terror networks”

      ….unless you are talking about the “extensive global terror network” of the CIA and other psychopath controlled US Government Agencies, who: created these terrorists by blowing up the entire Middle East, train these terrorists, fund them, and then turn them loose to cause the needed chaos for Martial Law, and the Satanic psychopath so-called “Great Plan” for total enslavement and control of the dumbed down New Babylonian American cowards, and the children they whored out long ago.

      ‘They’re’ here?

      Of course; Private mercs’, sociopath US government operatives, and Mossad have been here a lonnnnnng time.

      I’m waiting for the 1st armed patriot to take down one of these ‘jihadists’, AND LO AND BEHOLD, it will be a Mossad or Craft International murderer, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’!

      (In case you didn’t know this, Craft Int’l were the guys at Boston WHO HAD THE CORRECT BACKPACK WITH THE SO-CALLED BOMB)

      Whip out your phone, remove their balacklava and photograph/vid a White guy, rip out a chunk of hair FOR 100% PROOF POSITIVE DNA, and HAUL ASS OUT OF THERE (leave the weapon, but take photos and serial number). Grab their other goodies, too

      You have maybe 60 seconds, and you have just moved to the very top of the FBI’s Most Wanted list of ‘fugitives terrorist’, and you need to make multiple copies of what you have, get copies to anyone and everyone you can think of, get it out to EVERY major and alt-news station/reporting (MSM will never air it, but they’ll soon be outed for having sat on it, like the good government whores they are), and get to a major law firm, engage SEVERAL attorneys. NOT JUST ONE. It’s too easy for him to ‘commit suicide’ when he realizes he’s “distraught at helping a terrorist’ – like 2 rounds to the back of his head.

      My 2¢ – but I’ll bet it’s 100% correct.

    27. D3F1ANT

      Uncovering these jihadists DOSN’T mean they’re suddenly here. They’ve been here. These two terrorists should be treated NO differently than the two Nazi spies that were sent here to infiltrate and were caught on the East Coast during WWII.

      I dont get into town everyday but I have noted groups of young moslem men from 6-14 in stores and restaurants who appear to be passing through to some where else. They are often body guards for long bearded men ot they are escorting a shopping cart of food and water Six in a group walking ahead then spaced out two pushing the cart and then spaced out 6 more men following up. Acting like they are not together but keeping pace with the cart. swarthy men young some with long beards black curly hair Not Mexicans They are up to something perhaps a training camp some where in the Pacific northwest woods
