International law-enforcement authorities combating
terrorism have growing concerns about a major influx into Mexico of
Arabic-speaking visitors carrying Cuban, Russian and European passports.
Some of these "Europeans" could not even
speak the language of their so-called mother land, according to a secret report
given to the Mexican legislators.
Intelligence sources have been warning us
that they have noticed a tendency among Islamic terrorists to operate in Mexico.
Mexico with a territory slightly bigger than Alaska and with geographic
extremes that have proven perfect for hiding illegal aliens and drugs is a no
brainier. This Information has been known by the U.S. law enforcement before
911, but has to date failed to do much about it.
Newspaper reports tell of Muslims having
in addition to Mexico have also found their way into Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil
and other neighboring countries, and authorities claim most Muslims crystallize
into small community clusters, centering mainly in large cities, close to
mosques, prayer locations or religious Quran schools known as madrassas. One of
the best examples to this trend is the Maicao district, where some 70 percent of
all small- and medium-sized businesses belong to Muslims mainly of Syrian,
Lebanese and Egyptian origin.
A Colombian official told G2 Bulletin: "A
fair part of our Muslim community are second- and third-generation immigrants,
but the problems arise from recent immigrants who import new jihadi
philosophies. These people are also active in Islamic missionary work converting
the poor and destitute with promises of a better life under Islam."
These terrorists are organized in active
cells around the country of Mexico according to a Mexican General who wants to
remain nameless. I have seen documents describing part of the drug-smuggling
cartels cooperation with terrorists using their existing routes though Mexico to
the states. Islamic terrorists are paying millions to the Mexicans to transport
their drugs from Afghanistan, as well as weapons and people. These elaborate
well defined drug routes run through a web of border crossings pointing also to
the complex cooperation between various "smuggling cartels and the terrorists."
These belong to jihadi organizations such as al-Qaida, joining forces with local
drug lords, developing and oiling their smuggling mechanism all the way to
Mexico aiming ultimately to hit the U.S.
With the nature of lawlessness, graft,
poverty and disorder in Mexico, enables operatives of such terrorist groups as
al-Qaida, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas to operate with impunity. These
organizations have turned Mexico into a logistical attack base.
The growing danger is that the militant
Islam terrorists have penetrated Mexico, a country with an increasing Muslim
community, including Muslim converts. Some of them have ties to the Mexican
community and to illegal immigrants' smugglers operating in American states
bordering Mexico, especially those with connections in Arizona, New Mexico,
Texas and California.

agrees to monitor foreign groups as Muslim recruitment rate skyrockets.
Islam is on the move in
Mexico and throughout Latin America, making dramatic gains in converting the
native population, increasing immigration, establishing businesses and charities
and attracting attention from U.S. government officials who have asked their
neighbors to the south to keep an eye on foreign Muslim groups.
The monitoring of foreign groups is
intended to "avoid problems in Mexico that have an impact in the United States,"
said the head of the Attorney General Office's special terrorism investigation
unit, Gen. Jorge Serrano. The ones who ... are being watched by migration (authorities) are
foreigners," Serrano said, without revealing the number of people being
monitored or their countries of origin.
Serrano said no Muslim
terrorists have been found living in Mexico, though the office is investigating
alleged terrorist activities being carried out by Mexicans.
The recruitment of new
followers is especially active in southern Mexico and among the indigenous
Mayans who are converting by the hundreds, according to a report in Der Spiegel.
The Mexican government, the report says, is concerned about a culture clash in
its own back yard.
Tzozil-Indians have converted to Islam in recent years and it's a development
that is beginning to worry the Mexican government, said the Der Spiegel report.
The government even suspects the new converts of subversive activity and has
already set the secret service onto the track of the Mayan Muslims. Mexican
President Vincente Fox has even gone so far as to say he fears the influence of
the radical fundamentalists of al-Qaida.
Indeed, with Islamic
"charities" under increasing international pressure and scrutiny to cut ties
with terrorists, al-Qaida and other allied organizations are expanding
operations throughout Latin America, establishing both legitimate and criminal
enterprises to fund future operations.
According to U.S.
Ambassador to Venezuela Charles Shapiro, almost every extremist terror group is
now represented in Latin America.
have confirmed human smuggling rings in Latin America are attempting to sneak
al-Qaida operatives into the U.S.
say extremist cells tied to Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and al-Qaida network are
operating in Argentina, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay and
Uruguay. Although cooperation between al-Qaida and Hezbollah has been known for
some time, the two groups have formed a much closer relationship since al-Qaida
was evicted from its base in Afghanistan.
In March, FBI Director
Robert Mueller told a congressional panel that illegal aliens from countries
with ties to al-Qaida have crossed into the U.S. from Mexico using false
Mueller said some of
the aliens are people with Middle Eastern names who have adopted Hispanic last
names before coming into the U.S.
"We are concerned,
Homeland Security is concerned about special interest aliens entering the United
States," Mueller said.
Mueller said one route
takes Middle Easterners to Brazil, where they assume false identities before
entering Mexico and then crossing into the U.S. Bush administration officials
have previously said al-Qaida could try to infiltrate the United States through
the Mexican border.
The administrator of
the Drug Enforcement Administration, Asa Hutchinson, has said, that more
recently, al-Qaida has become deeply involved in cocaine and heroine
trafficking, arms and uranium smuggling, counterfeiting CDs and DVDs and
Of growing concern to
some U.S. officials is the way the terrorists south of the border might use lax
immigration standards to slip into the U.S.
Tens of millions of
Muslims, mostly of Arabic descent, live in Latin America.
The terrorists even
get some official support in Latin America, according to sources.
Air Force Maj. Juan
Diaz Castillo, who was Chavez's pilot, told WorldNetDaily through an interpreter
that "the American people should awaken and be aware of the enemy they have just
three hours' flight from the United States."
Diaz said he was part
of an operation in which Chavez gave $1 million to al-Qaida for relocation
costs, shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States.
Detonating a nuclear weapon in
Juarez, Mexico is the same thing as detonating one in El Paso, Texas:
Walk seven blocks south from
the heart of downtown El Paso and you’re on the bridge that empties into Avenida
Juárez, the tourism center of Juárez, and you’re a few blocks from the city’s
cathedral and main plaza. Nowhere else in the world are two major cities of two
different countries so closely connected — or so easy to visit from either side.

singles out the Mexican border as an especially inviting target for Hezbollah
operatives. “Many alien smuggling networks that facilitate the
movement of non-Mexicans have established links to Muslim communities in
Mexico,” its Counter Terrorism Center said in a 2004 threat paper.
“Non-Mexicans often are more difficult to intercept because they typically pay
high-end smugglers a large sum of money to efficiently assist them across the
border, rather than haphazardly traverse it on their own.”
America’s enemies have chosen Latin America as a preferred target to undermine
security in the Americas and weaken America politically and strategically.
America’s various adversaries have chosen Mexico as their infiltration route.
And American politicians are opening the doors wide to our enemies with
NAFTA and The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP).
Grenier, who until recently was head of the CIA's counter-terrorism center, told
a press conference in Mexico said that the Muslim terrorist organizations see
the illegal immigration and drug trafficking networks in the Latin American
nations as the most effective way to move people and equipment into the US.
said that the Bush Administration fears both Hamas and Hizballah may already
have sleeper cells operating in Mexico.
Hizballah have both threatened in the past to extend their war against Israel to
include the United States.
Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey tells
NewsMax in an exclusive interview that terrorists could strike the American
homeland — possibly with a weapon of mass destruction.
A terrorist strike with a dirty bomb or
with biological weapons was "a real possibility." Woolsey's comments echo those
of FBI Director Robert Mueller, who told NewsMax that al-Qaida's paramount goal
is clear: to detonate a nuclear device that would kill hundreds of thousands of
Americans. leaders and documents, the plan is called the "American Hiroshima"
and involves the multiple detonation of nuclear weapons already smuggled into
the U.S. over the Mexican border with the
help of the MS-13 street gang and other organized crime groups.
