Not Ready for my Burqua: The Growing Threat of Narco-Terror

leave a comment »

With a great deal of attention focused of late on Hizbullah’s extensive arms buildup, little heed has been paid to yet another dangerous development taking place across the northern border: the resurgence of the drug trade in Lebanon.

Without much fanfare, the Shi’ite terrorist group has been presiding over an increase in the cultivation and production of illicit crops such as opium and hashish in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

And though the extent of the drug trafficking is still well below the levels reached during the heyday of the 1980s, it is nonetheless on the upswing once again.

That alone should have policymakers both in Israel and the West concerned, if only because the lucrative narcotics trade plays such an important role in financing Hizbullah’s network of terror and mayhem.

Not Ready for my Burqua: The Growing Threat of Narco-Terror.

Wherever there is a terror network, drug traffic appears: looks at Afghanistan… Yes, there are places where the incidency of drugs is not so important (Iraq) but that’s because the money coming from drugs is somwhere else (Afghanistan, Central Asia, Morocco…).
