EXCLUSIVE: Minneapolis Ciggie Smugglers Are HAMASniks; Over $2.5 Mill in MN Taxes Likely Went to HAMAS Operations

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE (And Added Links) ****
Last week, I told you about members of the Al-Esawi and Wazwaz families who were convicted of cigarette smuggling and tax fraud of over $2.5 million in Minnesota. (One of them used the alias, “Anthony Stallone.”) Like Hezbo convicts before them, they smuggled ciggies into the Minneapolis area that they bought in another state with little or no cigarette taxes. Then, they pocketed the difference–the exorbitant cigarette taxes that were supposed to go to the State of Minnesota.
As usual, the article in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune did not mention that these men were Muslims or Arabs or tied to terrorism. But I figured they were, and when I wrote about this, I asked which terrorist group they were doing this for–Hezbollah or HAMAS? Well, I got my answer.


Adel Wazwaz a/k/a Adel Salem:

HAMAS Poet Has Cigarette Smuggling Family in Minnesota
My intelligence sources in the region inform me that the Al-Esawi and Wazwaz families are related by marriage and made up of Palestinians active at some of the highest levels of HAMAS, some of whom moved to Minnesota. One of them is even a Palestinian terrorist “poet,” Adel Wazwaz a/k/a Adel Salem. He appears to be the same Adel Salem who was convicted in the cigarette tax fraud. And for certain, his close relatives were the ones I wrote about who were indicted, convicted, and sentenced, sadly to only about two years (which means they’ll do far less. Here’s what one of my sources told me about Adel Wazwaz/Salem:

Adel Mohammad Wazwaz, a poet who wrote a lot of poetry and books in support of the Palestinian cause lives in Minnesota. Adel Wazwaz, whose full name is Adel Mohammad Abd Al-Ruhman Ali Hasan Salem Wazwaz, also sometimes goes by the name Adel Salem. I am sure the money from the cigarette scam went to support terror groups like HAMAS and offshoots of it.
Wazwaz was in Jerusalem and came to the U.S. with his parents in 1976. He studied here and was traveling back and forth to Jerusalem. He was arrested twice by the IDF in 1985 and served 29 months in Beer Sheva and Nafha prisons for his support and activities with the Palestinian terror groups. After his release and in 1987, he was put under house arrest for six months on the condition to report daily to a police station. His books and poetry, some of which he wrote in prison, are great inspiration for the Palestinian terrorists. He published some books in Beirut and his writing is published in Palestinian papers on the net. He came back to the U.S. permanently in 1989.

How the heck does that happen? Get out of Israeli prison after terrorist activity, get welcomed to the U.S. The deafness, dumbness, and blindness of our country continues to be jaw-dropping.

The Al-Esawi family is originally from what they call “Palestine,” but are spread throughout the Arab world with the surname Wazwaz.
The Wazwaz family lives in what they call “the West Bank,” in the Hebron/Jerusalem area/Khorbet Kelkas which is east of the Drom Har settlement, ie., in the area of Judea and Samaria.

Yup, and they’ve long since invaded our country. Splendid.
**** UPDATE, 03/13/08: Check out Adel Salem’s biography (in Arabic). He wrote a book in 2006, called, “For the Eyes of the Green Card.” Hello . . . ? It was published in Beirut.
Also, check out this aerial map of houses of the Wazwaz family in Hebron (they’re calling it “Al Khalil”), not far from the Palestinian Polytechnic University, a/k/a “HAMAS U”–a hotbed of HAMAS members, activity, and recruitment.

I am linguistically ignorant so this is probably just a coincidence, but I think it’s a funny one: From my regular reading of on-line fatwa sites, I have learned that the whisperings of Satan are called “waswas” – at least that’s how the Ask The Imam guy spells it – at it makes for a consistent idea: the Hamas poet is named for the whisperings of the devil.

Such concern is admirable, but the blind eye towards Mossad control of the ecstasy smuggling into the US, which raises unaccountable billions yearly is not. Nor towards the Northern Alliance and the US ARMY enabling the restoration of opium traffic from Afghanistan, and the way this administration and the UK’s allow 92% of the world’s opium to flow freely. All those drones, satellites, spy planes, soldiers on the ground, and the poppies are somehow planted, raised and harvested every year since we attacked Afghanistan.
The farmers say they pay protection to the local warlords from the Americans and Brits, and they’re getting their money’s worth.
Ever wonder how many billions the Bush cut must be? Yawn… I knew you hadn’t.
Quick recap: Drugs under the control of natives for distribution and profits, BAD. Drugs whose distribution is controlled by US interests, GOOD.
Got it?
The ciggie scam is primarily, if not totally, for self-enrichment. Every Palestinian has Hamas or Fatah links/contacts. But the stretch about tax money going to Hamas sounds good…

Why be concerned about something that is a fairy tale? Where did this come from? Stormfront? fpp?
