Hezbollah's Rafic Labboun in Belize: Is the Justice of the Peace Involved?

Yasser Safa is one of two naturalized Belizean men who were captured in Mexico along with U.S. fugitive, Rafic Mohammad Labboun Allaboun on Saturday, September 8th, after a successful operation by the National Migration Institute (INM) and the State Police. According to reports, almost a dozen law enforcement vehicles were seen parked in front of Labboun’s Mexican home in the Francisco Montejo area of Merida. The officers breached the premises with extremely high powered rifles. Arrested along with Labboun, and naturalized Belizeans, Safa was George Abdalah Elders.
Rafic Mohammad Labboun is a U.S. citizen of Lebanese citizen,  who has first moved to the States almost 30 years ago. He was convicted of credit card fraud and after serving time in prison, he was released on parole. However, he violated the terms of that parole when he left the United States.  Labboun was deported to the U.S. a few hours after his arrest, Sunday very early in the morning, because there was a warrant out for his arrest in Houston, Texas. On Monday, he appeared before a judge in Texas for violating his parole and was returned to California for imprisonment.

According to officials, Rafic Labboun identified himself at the time of the arrest using a Belizean passport with the name William Dyck. The Belize Police Department is currently engaged in an investigation to determine exactly how it is that he got the passport. The Guardian spoke to the Senior Public Relations Officer in the ministry of National Security, Delroy Cuthkelvin, on Wednesday, September 13th. He explained that the matter has been turned over to the Criminal Investigation Branch. So far, they have determined that William Dyck was born in Shipyard in Orange Walk on February 8th, 1976. The birth registration was confirmed by the Vital Statistics Unit. Police visited the listed address for Dyck and, according to Cuthkelvin, they spoke to a woman, who said that she does remember William Dyck. The woman identified herself as Dyck’s sister and informed the officers that William Dyck died two months after birth in 1976. Both of their parents have since died as well. Police then visited the Vital Statistics Unit but could not find documentation of the baby’s death. They then focused the investigation on the application and issuance of the identification documents. Labboun was also found with a Belizean driver’s license.  

Police investigation has revealed that a copy of William Dyck’s birth certificate was issued on August 29th of this year. Anyone can request a person’s birth certificate. However, their name must appear on the application form. The application form for Dyck’s birth certificate has not been found at the Vital Statistics Unit since police started their investigation. Therefore, it is not known who applied for the document. Police investigation has also revealed that, on the same day the birth certificate was issued, a passport application was filed. The applicant paid $100 for express service and received the passport the following day, on August 30th. The driver’s license that Rafic Labboun had was issued by the Belmopan City Council. The license identification number is 02592 and the serial number is 12751. Subsequent checks at the Belmopan City Hall revealed that the license identification number already belonged to another Belmopan resident. A further check showed that Belmopan licenses have not even reached the 12000 series as yet; therefore, 12751 could not have been issued. As part of police’s investigation into the validity of the passport, police have spoken to Juliana Arana who was the Justice of the Peace that signed on the passport application. In a striking bout of coincidence, Juliana Arana’s house was burnt on Saturday morning a little after 4 a.m. She was not at home at the time, she was in Barranco attending a family funeral. Just like the case with the Vital Statistics Unit, the Immigration Department is experiencing difficulties tracking down the passport application form. Cuthkelvin says that if it is not a culture of negligence, it is a practice of poor filing techniques because old application forms at both departments seem extremely hard to locate. The application forms would answer very important questions like who applied for the documents; who accepted the application form; who issued the document and who received the document. Cuthkelvin says that police have confirmed that Labboun visited the immigration office himself to apply for and receive his passport. How he got into the country in the first place is another question still unanswered.
As for Safa and Elders, both Lebanese immigrants and naturalized Belizeans, they both entered Mexico legally and no charges are expected to be filed against them or their family. However, according to reports, they are believed to be operatives of a Hezbollah cell stationed in Mexico and Central America. Sources say that intelligence agencies from the United States were tracking the group for a while. It is believed that they were participating in financing activities in an attempt to bail out incarcerated Hezbollah members jailed in the United States. Safa is no stranger to Belize police. He's been known in Belize for selling a bunch of stolen SUVs from Guatemala and passing off multiple bounce cheques. In February of 2007, Yasser Safa was busted in Panama with 3 kilos of cocaine. According to a report by 7 News on February 5th, 2007, Safa had also been busted in Mexico on a human trafficking charge, but was traded back into Belize on a prisoner exchange programme. Despite all allegations and charges against Safa, he seems to have a gift for escaping prolonged jail time. Elders worked in Belize as a mechanic on Coney Drive.

Malcolm Shabazz Reveals the Khomeinist Colors of Saba Center of San Jose

Malcolm Shabazz, a maternal grandson the name-sake of Malcolm X, reveals the true colors of the Northern California-based Saba Islamic Center of San Jose and Fatimiyya Islamic Center of Hayward: Hezbollah is a helpful organization and the hanging of Blacks from trees is the reason as to why White Christians hang ornaments on Christmas trees!
Shabazz was brutally murdered on May 9, 2013, in a bar in Mexico City while he was drinking beer in the company of Miguel Suarez. The latter is a deportee from the United States and the leader of RUMEC -- a construction company and labor rights organization based in San Jose, CA.


Lee Kaplan Discusses the Pro-terrorism Activities of Ali Mir of SABA Islamic Center

Lee Kaplan discusses the pro-Hezbollah activities of SABA Islamic Center's Ali R. Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi)

The investigative journalist Lee Kaplan looks into the pro-terrorism Internet activities of Ali R. Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi) and discusses them with Zia Atabay on NITV.

Ali R. Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi): "HEZBOLLAH [a dangerous international terrorist organization] -- Take the gun and fight the Zionists [i.e., Jews] and the Nawasib [i.e., Sunni-Muslims]."

Ali Mir (Ishraq Abidi) is a leading figure at the San Jose-based Shia Association of Bay Area (SABA Islamic Center). He is the son of SABA's troubled imam Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi). Ali Mir is also a Qur'an teacher in SABA's Sunday School. Last year, Ali Mir led SABA's procession during its yearly Husayn Day "Peace" Walk, an event that uses to promote extremism in the Bay Area.

Said Lee Kaplan: "There are a lot of things going on because of the Internet. That's one of the things too. I did an article on (the Northeast Intelligence Network), where I talked about the imam's son [Ali R. Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi)]at the SABA Mosque who seems to be, you know, a forthright young man of seventeen, who is the imam's son. But, you know, after we did some research into the boy's social media on the Internet we saw a multitude of websites, which had Jihadist and Khomeinist leanings on them. Now I am not just talking, you know, about public opinion or propaganda in favor of the Velayat-e Faqih regime, but I am talking about things that promoted terrorist entities, you know. Things like, you know, "fight the Zionists," which is of course the Jews; "fight the Nawasib," which is of course the Saudis because they are considered the enemy [by the Khomeinists] because they are Sunnis. And the boy's social media pages are festooned with armed terrorists, armed fighters, propaganda war videos from Iran and things like this..."

The Court Appeal of Rafic Labboun: Denied

Raffic Labboun appeals his conviction of seven counts of bank fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344(1). As alleged by the government and found by the jury, each of these counts arose from an alleged credit card “bust out” scheme in which Labboun used “bad checks” to pay off outstanding credit card account balances and then incurred or attempted to incur additional charges on those accounts before the checks bounced. He raises eight issues on appeal. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and we affirm.

Qayeem Abbas: The Beast of Alipur

Watch Maulana Hujjat-ol Islam Syed Dr. Qayeem Abbas (a.k.a. The Beast of Alipur) calling for massacring the Jews and destroying America (in Urdu):

Every Khomeini-infested town has a beast and in Alipur the beast is Qayeem Abbas!

Qayeem used the Arabic word "Yahud" (Arabic for Jews. Arabic: يهود) to refer to the Jewish people. Qayeem is shown in this video clip screaming "Khaybar, Khaybar ya Yahud," invoking the infamous Islamofascist call for the annihilation of the Jews. He later on also invokes calls for the destruction of the United States while glorifying the Khomeinist Iranian regime.

Alipur is a primitive remote village located in Karnataka, India. This town is totally controlled by Khomeinist "Sadat" mullahs who take advantage of the naiveté and isolation of their followers to build-up Judeophobia and anti-Americanism in their minds.

Alipur is also the hometown of the infamous San Francisco Bay Area-based Khomeinist mullah Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi). Qayeem and Nabi Raza are not only relatives but also graduates of the Hawzas (seminaries) of Qom, Iran. While Qayeem is brainwashing the villagers of Alipur, his cousin Nabi Raza is very busy indoctrinating the Shia youths and children of the Bay Area with Khomeinism. Qayeem works against the United States on the outside but Nabi Raza got the better end of the deal: He works against America from the inside!

Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi) is the in-house cleric at Shia Association of Bay Area (SABA), the extremist anti-Semitic pro-Hezbollah Khomeinist sectarian organization based in San Jose, California.
