The enemy next door

While it is no secret that many American Muslims are sympathetic towards the plight of terrorist organizations, it is very disconcerting that they are allowed to raise funds and support Hezbollah unfettered. has a post on the Dearborn, MI concentration of the fund-raising, and Michelle Malkin has more. (by the way, Dearborn is a 15 minute drive from my house.)
...there is convincing evidence that a Hezbollah-linked charity, with direct ties to the group’s spiritual leader in Lebanon, is currently operating in Dearborn, Michigan.
Despite Al-Mabarrat-USA’s direct link to a Fadlallah-controlled organization, to date, the U.S. branch continues to operate unfettered. In fact, the organization appears to have gained a level of credibility in the U.S. as the Detroit Free Press reported earlier this month that “many Muslims in the region have donated to Al-Mabarrat.”

Debbie Schlussel has done deep digging on Hezbollah front charity Al Mabarrat Association and its Dearborn, Michigan affiliate, Al Mabarat Charitable Organization.

Her question: "Why do the FBI, ICE, and the Justice Department continue to allow an obvious Hezbollah charity to continue to operate on our shores?"
