New York (AFP) – An American of Lebanese descent was sentenced to 40 years in prison on Tuesday for buying weapons and plotting attacks on behalf of the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah.

Ali Kourani, 34, was found guilty in May of gathering intelligence on potential attack targets, including New York’s JFK International Airport and a federal building in Manhattan.

A federal court in America’s financial capital convicted him of eight allegations including conspiracy to use weapons in a violent crime.

Born in Lebanon but naturalized by the United States in 2009, Kourani attended several Hezbollah training camps in his country of birth and took orders from agents of the Iran-backed organization after his 2003 arrival in the United States.

Hezbollah was created by Iran in the early 1980s and has fought Israel for decades.

There is only one cure for dedicated Mohammedans.

It comes in a variety of calibers.

Is that 100 million we just sent to Lebanon definitely going to stay in the right hands?

Lebanon’s army is infiltrated by Hezbollah, so the aid (and the weapons it buys) could easily end up in jihadi hands. Not that that’s anything new.

Wonderful. Now the US is on the hook for the next 40 years for a comfy room with a TV and three meals a day. Does this equal and eye for an eye or a tooth for a tooth?

Well, at least one more DeBlasio/Cuomo/Clinton/Sanders/Warren voter is not going to vote next year.
