Convergence of crime and jihad terror as Venezuela harbors Hizballah, Chinese Triad and Russian Mafia


Increasing evidence indicates that the Venezuelan regime is using its state apparatus to provide cover and concealment for terrorists and traffickers alike. It's time we consider designating their government as a state sponsor of terrorism and transnational organized crime.

The struggling socialist Venezuelan regime, a global hub for crime-terror convergence, has been harboring criminal and terrorist groups such as Iran's proxy Hezbollah, Chinese Triads, the Russian Mafia, and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia

It is already of grave concern that Venezuela's Vice President, Tareck El Aissami, "is a known entity in the world of US intelligence. He is allegedly a part of Venezuela's state drug-trafficking network and has ties to Iran, Syria, and Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah." Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro also met with Ayatollah Khamenei in 2016; they both slammed Israel (tp which they referred, of course, as the "Zionist regime") and the United States.

Now Hizballah can conceal its jihad activity behind drug crime . . .
