Nations in the Middle East, some of whom were once allies of the U.S., appear to be defying America. This is very evident when reviewing the events over the past six months in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Iraq, and also among the Palestinians. As former Vice President Dick Cheney stated, “our allies no longer trust us, or have confidence in us, and our adversaries no longer fear us.” The problem is also that America’s allies in the region are dwindling while its adversaries are increasing.
The terrorist group Hezb’allah, based in Lebanon, is establishing “resistance cells” worldwide under the direction of Iran, according to Mohammad Hussein Babai, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the province of Golestan.
The cells are already infiltrating the United States with the help of Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez and drug cartels.
The Iranian Student News Agency, which is close to the Guards, reported last week that Babai, during a press conference, revealed that these jihadist cells began forming after the 2006 Lebanon war between Israel and Hezb’allah, and with the current Islamic Awakening, they have expanded their operations.
Their mission, Babai said, is to help create an Islam-dominated world.
