JFK terror plot suspect pleads guilty

On the eve of his criminal trial, Abdel Nur, a Guyanese national charged in an international plot to blow up fuel lines at JFK Airport, pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorists.

Nur, 60, who was extradited from Trinidad to stand trial in the case, acted as a go-between with the plot’s mastermind, Russell Defreitas, and the radical Islamic group in the Caribbean, Jamat al Muslimeen.

Hezbollah works with Mexican drug cartels on U.S. border

Iran-tied terror group Hezbollah may be colluding with drug cartels along the U.S.-Mexico border, a Republican congresswoman warned, calling on Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to establish a special task force to figure out how to “clamp down” on this “national security” threat.

The Lebanon-based group has long-standing and documented ties to South America and its drug gangs, but reports have recently surfaced that it is expanding its influence to Mexico and the U.S. border.

Former New Jersey resident, Hezbollah member arrested in Paraguay

A former New Jersey resident indicted by federal authorities last year over his role in a U.S.-based Hezbollah terror cell was arrested in Paraguay on Tuesday and faces extradition to the United States.

Moussa Ali Hamdan, 38, a native of Lebanon who for a time lived in a $600-a-month efficiency apartment in West Collingswood, New Jersey, was a central figure in a four-year probe led by the FBI’s Philadelphia Joint Terrorism Task Force.
