In recent years, Hezbollah has stepped up its activities beyond Lebanons borders. This uptick has been clearest in the Middle Eastin Iraq, Yemen, and especially Syriabut plots have also been thwarted in South America, Asia, Europe, and now, possibly, the United States.
Reports of Hezbollah activity in North America are not new, though such reporting tends to focus on the groups fundraising, money laundering, procurement, or other logistical activities from Vancouver to Miami. But last month, the criminal prosecution and conviction in New York of the Hezbollah operative Ali Kourani revealed disturbing new information about the extent of Hezbollahs operations and activities in the United States and Canada.
Taken together, the arrests in 2017 of Kourani and another Hezbollah operative, Samer el-Debek, led the U.S. intelligence community to revisit its longstanding assessment that Hezbollah would be unlikely to attack the U.S. homeland unless the group perceived Washington to be taking action threatening its existence or that of its patronIran. Following Kourani and Debeks arrests, the director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center said in October 2017, Its our assessment that Hezbollah is determined to give itself a potential homeland option as a critical component of its terrorism playbook.
Kourani carried out other operational activities as a long-term sleeper agent, acting on behalf of Hezbollahs external attack-planning component, the Islamic Jihad Organization (IJO), such as identifying Israelis in New York who could be targeted by Hezbollah and finding people from whom he could procure arms that Hezbollah could stockpile in the area.

Foreign Policy magazine is the mouthpiece of CFR, which may be as explicit a manifestation of the Deep State there is.
They really really want Trump to torpedo himself with a war in Iran. He’d lose in 2020, they’ll put a stop to all the investigations, and the rest of the cat stays in the bag.
The fact is, the terrorists Kourani and el-Debek are not creations of the CFR they are creations of Iran and they’re not here to deliver flowers.
