NowLebanon is reporting that U.S. and Canadian intelligence agencies, which have previously warned of “the possibility of attacks carried out by Hezbollah against ‘Jewish targets’ outside the Middle East” have reactivated dormant cells in Canada.

We know from open sources that Canadian-based Hezbollah-sympathizers have routinely – often anonymously — defended the Lebanon-based terror group on various websites and listserves (and such sympathizers have viciously condemned outspoken critics of Hezbollah). And though few Americans are aware of it, there are growing pockets of Hezbollah support within some of the Shiia communities here in the United States.

Problem is, far too many in the media tend to whitewash Hezbollah as nothing more than “an armed group and a political party in Lebanon.”

Those in the media whitewashing Hezbollah are perhaps attempting to soften the threat for undeclared (but nevertheless real) political reasons, and they are getting away with it despite that fact that national security and counterterrorism experts are increasingly saying Hezbollah is a dangerously expanding terrorist group that “makes Al Qaeda look like a minor league team,” as Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff recently said.

Today, according to NowLebanon: “Some of the party’s chief activists have moved from Lebanon to Canada, Europe and Africa.”

We also know they are in South America (see yesterday’s and last week’s entries on Hezbollah in Venezuela).

In other news:  Sources are telling us that Assaad Hardan – who is on the U.S. Treasury Department’s designated list of pro-Syrian, terrorist-supporting bad guys who are undermining the push toward Lebanon’s democracy – will become the next president of the Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party (SSNP) in Lebanon.

Hardan is a very bad guy, and the SSNP – whose heavily armed and black-masked operatives were photographed rifling through Future News’s offices during Hezbollah’s attacks against the country last month — is a very dangerous group allied to Hezbollah.
