BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Monday that he had designated five groups as transnational criminal organizations. 

Among the groups designated as transnational criminal organizations by the Attorney General on Monday were Hezbollah, MS-13, Sinaloa Cartel, Clan de Golfo, and Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion.

A special team of “experienced international narcotics trafficking, terrorism, organized crime, and money laundering prosecutors” will investigate individuals and networks providing support to Hezbollah, Sessions said, as quoted by the Reuters News Agency.

Of the five groups designated to this list, Hezbollah was the only organization not based in Latin America.

“With this new task force in place, our efforts will be more targeted and more effective than ever,” Sessions said, explaining that in 90 days task-force members will give him specific recommendations “to prosecute these groups and ultimately take them off of our streets.”

But we know that about Hezbullah! When the US and Israel recognize that they’re the number one terrorists in the world then, at last, they got a little bit right. And just who the h**l do they think they are? . . . those vain glory warmongering maggots . . .

It’s laughable the CIA are the biggest drug cartel/distributor ever, just as Israel is the biggest terrorist organisation in the world.

Nasrallah = Pablo Escobar 2.0, Khamenei = El Chapo 2.0, both will end the same way. And they’ll need getting rid of their turbans and a good headshave because of lice 😉

Instead of this just fix the Israel and Arab dispute then dismantle all those groups because they won’t have reason to exist. This is my opinion.

The Israel-Arab dispute has ALWAYS been only the fact of Arabs and was created by creepy bigots like Amin al-Husseini. The Palestinian shït has been artificially created even before the state of Israel became independent.

Amin al-Husseini (Arafat’s uncle) started to fuel hatred as soon as 1921 on religious grounds when he became grand mufti of al-Aqsa, ordering the murder of all VIPs wanting to live in peace together with the Jews, on the behalf of Islam.

Meanwhile, even Koran recognises that the land of Israel belongs to the Jews!

Fuckestine is 77% the kingdom of Jordan. It’s a region, it has never been a country. Arab-Fuckestine is Jordan, Jewish-Fuckestine is Israel…

Should not a Jury or Court designate – not the attorney general?

LOL.

p.s. That is because the use of cocaine in Israel is high in the statistics about 1% of the people use it. US or Scotland have even higher percentage of users and thus US or Scotland will give even higher results. US + cocaine 70 million entries… Only number one Albania with more than 2% of the people using it lags in Google entries.
