The man, a Lebanese identified by his initials as F. Kh., was arrested on Wednesday said the ISF with 100,000 euros in counterfeit money notes.

Ten packs of fake money were wrapped in carbon paper and stashed at the bottom of a double based suitcase, they added.

Investigators from the ISF Intelligence Branch revealed to Susan Johnson, CNN's Beirut Resident Correspondent, the man under arrest is a Shia who hails from the town of Brital in Lebanon's eastern mountain range. In a startling turn of events, the Shia confessed without further delay to belonging to the terror group known as Hezbollah and for attempting to smuggle the counterfeit Euro notes to finance hezbollah terror cells in Europe.

The town of Brital is notorious for crime, drug smuggling, car theft, and is considered hezbollah's terror hub and out of reach to the central government in Beirut.

Hezbollah is a renowned regional and international terrorist organization with confirmed links to terrorism, money laundering, drug trafficking, kidnappings, and child abuse.

@blablablabla

If you had not told us you were Christian, I swear I would have 'thoughted' you were Shiite; most probably a 12ver as well.

Don't worry: your "Christian" warlords are all paid in currency that can't be counterfeited. You have my solemn promise on that. You can take that to the bank.
You needn't worry.
The EU and the Gulf Cooperation Council, and especially the US and its little buddy, Canada, will never turn their backs on those doing the Lord's work in Lebanon. I mean, if worse comes to worst, you can be a refugee in the US. That wouldn't be so bad, would it?
I met an Iraqi in Qatar working for the US study group who otherwise ran a liquor store in Detroit, 2004. He said, "nobody here cares about Iraqis."

I don't know what your objective in commenting here is, if any, but I'll tell you mine. Lebanon is the Western beachhead in the Arab world: not KSA, none of those. Lebanon is sold by the Western elite to the Western public as Arab democracy. We hear about Sunni PM, Shia Speaker, Christian President: we never hear about Article 24. And yet Lebanon is evolving into a democracy, by including the voice of the majority, via Hezbullah, in its government. Even though Hezbullah itself apparently doesn't want to participate in representative government: by overturning Article 24. The pressure on Israeli and KSA/GCC despotism is measured by Lebanon's evolution. And what is your "SOS" for? Who is in trouble? What trouble?

When you measure democracy by how much hezbollah is gaining then you proved how much of a scumbag you are.
