Is Your Phony Airbag Funding Hezbollah? Shi’ite Muslims Charged in Scheme for Hezbo Car Transfer to Africa
Today, two Shi’ite Muslim Lebanese Arabs made appearances in U.S. District Court in Detroit. The men, Samar Ayoub of Dearbornistan Heights and Hussein Jomaa of Dearbornistan, were charged in federal criminal complaints alleging that they were involved in a scheme of buying counterfeit Honda air bags from China and fitting them into cars bound for Africa. The investigation was conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. While the press release announcing the criminal charges doesn’t say so, it’s quite apparent that the scheme is tied to an Hezbollah money-laundering scheme I wrote about last year, in which used cars were sent to Africa, sold there, and the profits went to Hezbollah terrorism financing.

As I told you then, used car rings around America, all owned by Arab Muslims, were sending used cars from the U.S. to Africa in a scheme to fund Hezbollah through countries like Guinea, where Lebanese Shi’ite Muslims have footholds. As I also told you, I and informants of mine in Dearborn were on to this scheme for several years and alerted authorities, but we were ignored. Then, late last year, a division of the DEA which deals with the nexus between illegal drugs and terrorism investigated and began seizing the used car dealerships and shutting them down. Unfortunately, the DEA agents involved went for headlines and grandstanding and quickly shut the investigation down, deliberately choosing not to go after the core of the operation, which remains in place, including in Dearbornistan.
I did my own investigative research on these individuals and discovered that men with the same names, both residing in the Detroit area, filed for bankruptcy, with Ayoub’s bankruptcy completed in 2005 and Jomaa’s in 2010 (which means the fake air bag investigation was ongoing at the time or started just afterward). One wonders, since they had credit card debt, whether their bankruptcies were scams to cover up “busting out” schemes, which have been used by Hezbollah supporters in the Detroit area who’ve transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars to mysterious bank accounts in Lebanon.
DETROIT – Two metropolitan Detroit residents face criminal charges following their arrests Monday morning by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents during an enforcement action targeting an alleged counterfeit air bag trafficking scheme. The arrests capped a nearly two-year investigation by HSI [Homeland Security Investigations - the new branded name for ICE] special agents. . . .
The suspects Samar Ayoub, 39, of Dearborn Heights, Mich., and Hussein Jomaa, 30, of Dearborn, Mich., who made their initial appearances in federal court Monday afternoon, are charged in a criminal complaint with knowingly trafficking counterfeit merchandise.
According to the complaint, which was unsealed Oct. 15, Jomaa purchased Honda-branded air bags and other Honda trademark-infringing items from Ayoub late last year. Jomaa, the documented general manager of Eagle Auto in northwest Detroit, indicated he purchased the air bags and other counterfeit parts to place in vehicles destined for Africa. Ayoub is alleged to have originally purchased the air bags and other items from a manufacturer in China.
Yet another area of the counterfeit goods market that goes to funding Islamic terrorism. And more evidence that the feds are too cowardly and too politically correct to point out apparent Hezbollah terrorism financing, even though it’s all too obvious to them and anyone in the know.
