Funnel money to the terrorist group Hezbollah as part of an international money laundering scheme Walid Ferris is a fox is military.
That he made -- Fox News Middle East and terrorism analyst and author of the confrontation first off -- -- tell me how this works.
While this is almost -- James bone Jihad you have out of eleven on a network of Hezbollah from fold financial institutions including banks.
And other agencies.
Sending millions of dollars to banks and that works and North America -- being Canada and the United States.
Who purchased from those dozens of dealerships used cars to be shipped.
To Africa West Africa to four or five countries in West Africa.
And the operation there would be.
Should send that money plus -- and money and back and -- I don't what don't know about half a billion dollars back to Hezbollah from this operation now so are these dealerships Lebanese owned.
There are many according to the reports of those dealerships are either owned or managed by Lebanese some of them of course we're gonna see may be connected directly to Hezbollah others are.

That's the problem Brian because over the past months announced a couple three years we have been the government demonstration I've been saying this is a war against -- caught up.
That -- on the thought about I'm a thought enemy that's -- -- thing that happened yesterday.
But we're not focusing on being planned network of the jihadist including Hezbollah including Hamas of course that that's a systemic problem.
