1. Bottom line: when will the hydra's head be cut off instead
of its proxy tentacles?
The future human cost of fixing the consequences of senseless & fruitless "negociations" & other measures to kick the can down the road is rising by the day as examplified in Syria.
Even if Iran temporarily find it convenient to relieve economic pressures & appears to relent on its objectives, it will not in the end give them up without a fight to the finish. The main source of money,
weapons, terror & propaganda from Tehran has to be eradicated not slowed or temporarily suspended.
2. Viva Zapata!
3. Social organisation
Remember once french président Chirac callled them a social organisation...
In a way!!!
Europe is blind
4. To 1: Hydras head cut off?
To no avail, every head cut off leads to the growth of two new heads. The only remedy is burn down the stumps with fire, if you remember the story...
5. Old news
This is old news. It's been going on for a LONG time.
6. Danger, but neither the CIA nor the Mossad assassinate
hez-bull-ah, why not, because our muslum president won't permit it?

7. Hezbollah still not on the terrorist list right EU, UN?
8. NY Times????
As incredible as it sounds this story wouldn't even make the obituary page of the NY Times. The only solution is all out legalization of cocaine by prescription at 1/2 the street cost.

9. The CIA behaves like UN observers.
They watched and allowed this to grow. What good are they?
Does the use of drugs by these terrorists really surprise anyone?
They are violent, they are nasty and they are totally without human values.
Typical drug runners.

11. Proof, as if it was needed...
That Hizballah is nothing but a bunch of gangsters interested in their own agenda.

12. Utterly baseless
4000 individuals are a concern to the USA because they're Muslim??? WTF! This reads like an anti-Semitic canard but Jew has been replaced with the word Muslim and bank replaced with Hezbollah. Utterly disgraceful garbage. The Zapitistas have been at war with the Mexican government for over 30-years! Before the drug cartels and before bloody Hezbollah!
I lived in Chiapas for several years not long ago (San Cristobal De Las Casas) and I can tell you that the source for this “article” is full of it.
First off, there is only one federal district in Mexico, and that is the capital, Mexico City. Chiapas is a state in southern Mexico, and far from the drug violence that comes from the cartels fighting for the drug smuggling routes of the north.
The Zapatistas, are not violent and more of an opposition (alternate) government than an army. In all the years I was there, I never heard of someone being killed by them. They concern themselves more with indigenous rights, the building of schools and hospitals, and the protection of the Lacandon jungle and forests.
Yes, they have turned away from the Catholic Church. After centuries of being told by corrupt priests to be humble, accept their poverty, and wait for their reward in Heaven, they decided to tell the Roman Catholic Church to shove it. I sincerely doubt they would now accept another faith that tells them to also wait for their rewards in heaven. They have returned to their ancient forms of spiritual expression.
As for the cartels getting together with Hezbollah, I can’t say. However, I fail to see how that partnership would in any way benefit the cartels. The cartels don’t need Arab money, they don’t need weapons from the ME (they get better weapons from the US) and they grow and manufacture all the drugs that they move. On the other hand, getting in bed with terrorists would only bring even more heat down on them. It makes no sense.
14. Oh, and Carlos Slim
the richest man in the world, did not immigrate to Mexico. He was born in Mexico City; his CATHOLIC father immigrated to Mexico from Lebanon as a teenager. Lebanon was part of the Ottoman Empire at the time. His mother, also descendant from Catholic Lebanese immigrants, was born in Mexico.
Most of those Syrian and Lebanese immigrants are in fact Christians and Jews.
ie; Comunidad Maguen David, and Alianza Monte Siani.
How about some fact checking YNET?
15. 13 & 14: Right on
Thanks to Ze'ev for trying to set the record straight. Your comments are factual.

16. #13 thanks for the valuable info but.....
The Hezzis need to sell the drugs in Lebanon or even in Israel to support themselves. That is what the article is focusing on. That is why they would need the cartels.
