Two Middle East immigrants in the United States have been arrested in connection with terrorist activities after the FBI found out their chilling ties to the terrorist organization known as Hezbollah. This is a wake-up call to every American.

According to a news release from United States Attorney’s Office, District of New York, “Ali Kourani and Samer El Debek, a/k/a ‘Samer Eldebek,’ were arrested on Thursday, June 1, 2017, on charges related to their alleged activities on behalf of Hizballah[sic], a designated foreign terrorist organization. “

Kourani was reportedly living in the Bronx in New York, while Eldebek was living in Michigan. According to the detailed news release outlining the case, the men were allegedly searching out areas for possible terror attacks on U.S. soil and in Panama. According to NBC News, Kourani had sought out La Guardia International Airport as a possible target, as well as the New York FBI Headquarters.

Kourani, a native of Lebanon, is a naturalized American citizen who has been in the United States since 2003. According to the news release, he lied during his entry examination and omitted the fact that he had trained under Hezbollah in Lebanon when he was as a teenager. According to the release, Kourani has been arrested on charges that included:

“Providing, attempting, and conspiring to provide material support to Hizballah [sic]; 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.”

More at the link. One was scouting La Guardia Airport and FBI headquarters. That one had weapons charges, in addition to other charges, which included "a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and machine guns."

The other was scouting Panama US Embassy and Israeli Embassy.

I’m guessing these guys might have been on federal assistance but that’s just me being bitter.

I meant public assistance -welfare etc. because somehow these people have time for this activity and because they didn’t mention work places for either man.

Panama? Isn't that where that globally important canal is located? The one that Jimmy Carter gave away. Correction: if memory serves, Carter actually paid Panama to take it.

I’m tired of these America bigots not valuing diversity nor respecting the peaceful muzz slime culture, blowing up sh*t, being a central tenant of their rich, loamy, overly ripe even, religion. /s

I posted the following on a different thread;

Look what JUST happened in my region of NY (Southern Tier):

Muslim caught with multiple stashes of many firearms and very large amount of ammo!

http://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/public-safety/2017/06/14/weapons-bust-da-announcing-arrest/393688001/

All of the handguns were loaded when found. From his picture - he looks a bit smugly secretive to me. Like, “Yeah, ya got me - but you didn’t get much, hehehe”. That’s how he looks to me anyway.

They show one close-up of a garment that has Arabic writing on it. I am sure it’s all innocent.

“Happy to watch it..” makes me recoil in horror from your post. I will NEVER be happy to watch innocent people die.

Maybe the NYC is crap, but the upstate area still has some right thinking people.
This happened not to far from my NE PA birthplace. Scary times lie ahead, I fear
