Mexican Narcoterrorist Region May Abandon Catholicism for Islam

It would seem as if Bishop Ruiz’s brand of Liberation Theology has had the same effect on Chiapas as on Europe. Chiapas is poor, but it’s now also appearing to trend Islamic as any region under the influence of the left eventually does. When you kill the local religion and replace it with social justice, foreign religions eventually take its place.

In the mid-1990s, a leftist resistance group which calls itself The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) made Chiapas its home. Its attempts to fight the Mexican Army repeatedly failed, but the Zapatistas are still very active in the district’s rural areas. Chiapas is considered a dangerous place, where every home has an arms arsenal of its own; and like many other places in Mexico, Chiapas’ streets have become the battlefield where the government and local drug lords wrestle for dominance.

Chiapas, however, harbors an even more sinister secret: It is also a hub of radical Islamist activity.

Catholic Mexico is in the midst of a crisis of faith. According to a local businessman, who asked to remain anonymous, it is widely believed that within a decade, Chiapas will be the first federal state in Mexico to turn its back on the Church.

“The Muslim missionaries are very active there,” he said. “It’s hard to know exactly how many people have converted to Islam over the past few years.”

In December 2011, the US authorities released an indictment filed against Lebanese drug lord Ayman Juma, which exposed Hezbollah’s involvement with the Los Zetas drug cartel. According to the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Los Zetas is the most technologically advanced and most dangerous cartel operating in Mexico.

Juma was indicted in absentia for smuggling 85 tons of cocaine into the US and for laundering $850 million for Los Zetas. He was also accused of serving as a go-between for the Mexican crime syndicate and the Shiite terror group.

According to US officials, for a modest 8%-14% commission, Juma’s money laundering process would take about a week. The operation involved bank accounts in dozens of countries, making it virtually impossible to track the dirty money.

US intelligence concluded that Hezbollah has established sleeper cells, intelligence infrastructure and training bases in Mexico and other South American countries. The Shiite group is also helping the drug lords build smuggling tunnels under the US-Mexico border and satellite images show that they are nearly identical to the maze of tunnels running under the Gaza-Egypt border.

Hezbollah is also training the cartels’ operatives in the dubious art of explosives, helping drug lords improve their bomb-making skills.

Now why would they need to learn how to make better bombs?

So, first they abandoned Catholicism for protestantism and now abandoning protestantism for Islam? Color me skeptical. Chiapas has population of five million — maybe a few thousand Muslims out of that? They’ve got a long way to go to unseat the Christians and Christian/Indian-religion hybrids. These people are not secular unlike Europeans.

There's something else you might want to be concerned with.

That’s one way to get Hussein to support them.

Before it can be anything, the drug cartels and Islamafacists are going to go to war with each other.

Drugs dealers joining a cult which endorses the abuse and rape of women and children and the killing of infidels?

Who would have thought?

The US Socialistas will shrug their shoulders, ask "Which way is east?" and convert rather than put up a fight.

Ahhh! Still more evidence of the convergence between The Left, the Muzzies and the Globalist Fascists.

They are all 3 aligning against the Christians, Jews and some others fo faith.

God help the U.S., Israel and Texas. God Bless your family and mine.

You forgot the first step, where they were coerced into Catholicism by conquering armies of frenchmen and spaniards.

I thought that was implied by the inclusion of the religion-hybrid phrase.

Really, you think it is the same people?

Chiapas is still 67% Catholic, with many moving to Protestantism, and the article that this article links to, says that there are only 4,000 Muslims in all of Mexico.

The 'Frontpage' article cut off the second sentence from the Isreali source they were using, """The Muslim missionaries are very active there," he said. "It's hard to know exactly how many people have converted to Islam over the past few years." Official data suggests that Mexico is home to some 4,000 Muslims – a fraction in a country whose population numbers 115 million.""
