Feds: Hezbollah Recruited American to Be Sleeper Agent

A Bronx man was allegedly part of the Lebanese terror group’s plan to have operatives ready in case of an emergency.

When U.S. authorities allegedly discovered a Bronx man with terror training checking out potential targets in New York, they might have assumed he was inspired by ISIS.

Instead, it seems the city was facing a very unusual terror threat.

Ali Kourani was an alleged sleeper agent recruited by Hezbollah’s external terror arm, the Islamic Jihad Organization, or IJO.

    If he is indeed a terrorist recruited by Hezbollah and he succeeded in carrying out a terrorist attack he would be making history as this would be the first terrorist attack on U.S. soil by a group linked to the Lebanese militia.

    This article reads like typical war propaganda. The writer – Katie Zavadski – says the man was recruited by the “Islamic Jihad Organization”. The IJO is a defunct group that went out of business in 1992! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Jihad_Organization#Decline_and_demise_1986–1992

    When was the last time Hezabollah carried out a terrorist attack? All I know is they have been fighting ISIS the last 5 years making Syria safe again for its diverse population including the millions of Syrian Christian’s that no one in the west seems to give a damn about. For Hezbollah’s courageous actions in Syria they are despised by the United States and it’s “allies” Saudi Arabia and Israel.

    The American’s really seem intent on starting war with Iran lately. The news is filled with stories about how Iran and its proxy are the greatest threat to the world. The stupid neocon whore – Nimratta Haley – trotted out a spent missile fired at Saudi Arabia in an effort to agitate for war with Iran. The world never learns. Once again we are being sleep walked into another pointless war in the middle east. How many millions will die this time?

      How many times must the Ayatollahs and their Hezbollah puppets scream “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” before people realize that they are a menace to the peace? And they are no benefactors of Christians either. Look at Iran and Lebanon.

        They certainly were benefactors to the Christians in Syria who were facing genocide had ISIS succeeded. As for Lebanon as far as I am aware its very large Christian population coexists peacefully with Shia, Sunni, Druze groups despite efforts in the past to divide and conquer this small country.

    Remember this guy the next time CAIR, now NCCM , tells you that muslims are your neighbours, co-workers, Cops, teachers and cab drivers.

    They are ONLY muslims until the Jihad where they suddenly has NOTHING to do with islam .

    I wonder what the Hezbos consider an “emergency.”

    • Watchman

      Non-muslims still not converting or paying jizyah. That would be the emergency. /sarc
