Full title: Iran Aggressively Recruiting Invisible Army of Latin American Converts to Infiltrate U.S. Through Soft Belly of the Southern Border
Iran is recruiting an invisible army of revolutionary sympathizers in Latin America to infiltrate the U.S. through the soft belly of the southern border, U.S. officials and national security experts told TheBlaze. And theyre using one website in particular to do it.
The Iranian regimes conversion efforts are becoming increasingly aggressive, especially over the Internet, with the goal of conducting operations against United States interests in the Western Hemisphere, according to U.S. government officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the nature of their work in the region.
Islamoriente.com, which focuses on religion and politics, is one of Irans main recruitment and conversion websites for Latin America on the Internet, TheBlaze has learned. The site, which launched in 2008, includes links to Iranian television for Spanish speakers, anti-American news stories, essays on reasons to convert to Islam, chat rooms and a personal message from the Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran.
Even as President Barack Obama waits for Congress to make a decision on Syria, the Iranian website wastes no time and has no shortage of stories ridiculing the U.S. administration for threatening to strike President Bashar Assads regime, a staunch ally of Iran.
Jim Phillips, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation and expert in Iranian affairs, said Irans focus on Hispanic converts is a new evolution in Iranian operations in Latin America. Phillips said Khamaneis message titled The Importance of Work and the Nobility of the Worker in Islam, is significant because the Ayatollah is normally a background player in these sorts of efforts and doesnt usually play such a public role.

After the very first one attacks, Obama, Holder and Napalitano should all be brought up on charges of treason and dereliction of duty.
I agree but that would never happen.
If an attack is launched against Syria I expect lots of “small” attacks inside the US. I hope I’m wrong.

If Russians are killed, Putin will not be happy.
This would be a good time for Putin to test his latest anti missile defense systems. Use some of his ships to launch against cruise missiles and see what works.
Continue to be sad.
The evil bastard Obama is going to get a whole lot of people killed.
You’re going to continue to get “VerySad”.
Vlady would be one tick off KGB agent LOL!
And Putin detests girly man Obama.
It’s a process. First comes denial. Then sadness. Then anger. If you don’t start feeling better at that point you become sad again. I’m sad about what has happened to the country I served.
Im sad about what has happened to the country I served.
Yep, we didn’t serve and sacrifice to see what’s happening today. I’m sad, too.
Putin; talk about ruthless! Russia has warned us not to get involved. I have to believe he’s used much stronger words in private. I don’t think he’s going to like being ignored. What would we do if Russia issued a statement that says an attack on Syria will be considered an attack on Russia. I doubt that’ll happen but.....
Is the Russian delgation coming to talk to congress or are they waiting to be invited?
Right. But Obama is going to meet with a bunch of Gays while he’s in Russia. He’s beyond disgusting.
