No Bond for Detroit-area Man Linked to Hizbullah


A Detroit-area man accused of trying to travel to the Middle East to fight alongside Hizbullah in Syria's civil war will remain in custody while his case moves through court.

The government said Monday that 22-year-old Mohammad Hamdan wanted to join Hizbullah, which the U.S. considers a terrorist organization.

He is charged with violating a law that prohibits support for “terrorist groups.”

Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen said that Hamdan won't be released on bond.

Whalen pored over transcripts of secretly recorded conversations and said Hamdan is a "confused young man." He fears the suspect may try to flee.

Whalen said there's no evidence that Hamdan wanted to harm America.

But defense attorney Art Weiss vowed fight the charge.

The FBI said an informant recorded conversations with Hamdan.

He wanted to go fight the Wahabi throat slitting savages, which with great unfortunance, I must say is who the US is currently supporting. The ones who blow up churches and Shia mosques alike.

@Kanaandian : Meanwhile, all Alcolhol shops and restaurants in the south of Lebanon are being closed, or bombed and owners harassed!

There is no difference between your Wahabi throat slitting savages and Hezbollah... all extremists !

Meanwhile Ali and refaat Eid escape to Syria post bombing two Sunni mosques for your blind eyes. Oh wait Hizbollah is protecting our villages by sending their men deep into Syria and fighting along the failure Syrian army.

How about taking his us citizenship and giving back his Iranian one?

Thumb Elemental 01 April 2014, 08:35

Kinda hypocritical living in the US wouldn't you say? You are with a group that hates the US yet you live there why? Anyhow that doesn't make sense. However, find the source there in Michigan who's promoting this, and secondly if you wanna go and fight out the good ol' feud, head to KSA and Iran and duke it out there.

Oh the irony :P

Actually elemental he doesn't support the govt. just because someone disagrees with a govt policy does not mean ur against the country. I was against the war in Iraq. Does that mean I'm against the USA even though I live here in the USA?

He wasn't going to fight.

Full Disclosure : "I'm talking about well educated and worldly people, they don't blindly follow things"

You mean Hezbollah followers are neither "Educated" nor "wordly" because they blindly follow things ? Nasrallah says "fight" so they all carry weapons and go fight to their deaths ?

They could be building our country and economy instead but no.... we have to die for our cause ! What is our cause again ? I keep forgetting !

Free ...

... Lebanon ?
... Palestine ?
... Syria ?
... Water ?
... Oil ?
... All of the above ?

My cause is to free our people from the illusion depicted by Hezbollah, their weapons and their opponents.

Oh yes Foreclosure, we believe everything you say. Of course you have many Jewish friends, and are a groomsman in a Jewish wedding..... we believe you, jut because you say so.

Everything you say is sooooo believable.

It makes a lot of sense that a secular person like you, comes to a pro-M14 website, and spends 24/7 posting pro-Iranian propaganda here, while at the same time, you and your co-workers (fifi, roro and momo) ridicule this website for being biased against you and all other Syrian bootlickers.

It's very normal that a pro-Iranian, pro-Assad regime, pro-Hezbollah propagandist spends 24/7 posting over 50 comments per day on an M14-leaning website, a website which does not represent his values. Especially normal when said pro-Iranian propagandist proclaims to be "secular".

We don't see much of momo anymore, ever since you showed up.

Missing people-power 01 April 2014, 22:04

Oh of course Full-Taqiya..... your promise to "send a postcard" makes it all more believable.

Missing people-power 02 April 2014, 00:02

What a delusional Egomaniac!

Full-Taqiya..... I have no interest in "debating" with you.

You are a paid propagandist, who has ZERO life, and spends 24/7 posting comments on a website that you constantly disagree with. You are a loser. Get a life!

Hint: Anyone who thinks that someone who points out your falsehoods is losing "the debate" is surely self-delusional. And if you think you are winning anything, you are simply an egomaniac with no grasp on reality. Charlie Sheen syndrome.

There are many Hizballah and Amal, and ex-Hizballah and ex-Amal members, thug and cronies in Dearborn, MI. Additionally, many of the Dearborn residents are supporters by means of donations. Many receive food stamps and bridge cards (welfare) and use money saved to open up businesses to gain wealth to embezzle and launder money, and sending donations to Hizballah in Lebanon. I don't know why the FBI in MI does not put a stop to it.

Joseph you are right!!!

Default-user-icon Joseph (Guest) 01 April 2014, 10:53

@frankenstein I know a lot more than you think and I can tell you that Dearborn, Michigan is infested with Hizballah sympathizer, supporters and ex-Hizballah and ex-Amal members! I can also tell you that many have come here very poor and committed tax fraud, tax evasion, insurance fraud, real,estate fraud among other crimes. They do this while hiding their profit from their business and have their wives go apply and collect (welfare) food-stamps/bridge-card. They also send not millions but, hundreds of millions of dollars each year and most of it goes to their immediate families who are Hizballah members or should I say Hizballah cronies, thugs and thieves like the ones here in Dearborn, MI.

Missing hammouds 01 April 2014, 10:58

Lol I am one of those Dearborn residents. You have no idea what you're talking about.

Please elaborate Mr. hammouds...

And don't tell me you I don't know what I am talking about.

Thumb Elemental 01 April 2014, 18:34

Well Frankenstein, it's true as much as you want to dispute it. I've listened to HA cronies out of Dearborn and surrounding parts of Michigan, and they are the most depressing pre-programmed people I've ever had to deal with. If you ask them anything outside their "logic" there's nothing but anger and bigotted ignorance from them. They're there purely to leech off the system.

What a waste of a life to pledge allegiance to Iran~!-- poor peasants from Southern Lebanon with no hope in sight but this miserable resistance that has taken advantage of them. Shameful.

Death Sentence with lethal injection is the minimum he should get. Sectarian filth..

Default-user-icon Joseph (Guest) 01 April 2014, 10:33

poppi this is not sectarian. It is ideological. You should refrain from accusing the entire Shia sect for the actions of Hizballah. That is something you sectarian minded people need to stop doing. You can easily say because of a few Sunni extremist committing terrorist acts that all Sunnis are terrorist but, that is truly not the case. Leave the sectarian redundancy out of the comments and have a more lively discussion...It is enriching and enlightening when you can discuss or debate and article without resorting to name calling or sectarian patronization of other sects.

Thumb eagledawn 01 April 2014, 12:53

let me answer this for you fake josephani. 98% of shia in Lebanon and wherever shias exist exist support and condone the actions of your hizb. I am not a moslem, but I can tell you with a high degree of certainty that 98% of sunni moslems in Lebanon do not support extremists or fundamentalists. Kindly, stop your propaganda disguised under being a moderate after you have been banned for your despicable sectarian language. You are nobody who should be giving lectures in decency and morals.

alternatively and if you insist, I would say hand him over in one piece to the families of those massacred in Qusayr and Yabrud. They will choose the maximum applicable punishment.

There are more Hezbollah fighters in Syria than the sum of all other foreigners there. Shove your BS back where it came from!

Thumb FlameCatcher 01 April 2014, 16:28

Who talks about the West ? Why the total irrelevance ???

It doesn't matter where they come from. Hezbollah fighters are MERCENARY Terrorists in Syria like any other foreign fighter. Their numbers far exceed other foreign fighters in Syria. Whether they come from the north, east, south or west is irrelevant.

Iranian Reports have shown there are over 50,000 men from Hezbollah and Iran fighting in Syria. Go find me any other equivalent amount of terrorists on the other side...

Thumb FlameCatcher 01 April 2014, 16:39

Your comment is about "1000's join al qaeda, al nusra every week". They have to come from the west for me to argue with you ?

So if HA and Iranian terrorists go fight in Syria and don't hold US citizenship, it doesn't count ?

Berri is a US citizen too you know :) He came from the west and stole our parliament for decades ...
