More on Venezuela and Terror

Today the Jerusalem Post (via AP) reports that the U.S. has frozen the assets of a Venezuelan diplomat stationed in Lebanon, Ghazi Nasr al Din, who has apparently been fundraising for Hezbollah:

The U.S. government alleges that Nasr al Din used his position as a diplomat and president of a Caracas-based Shi’ a Islamic Center to give financial assistance to Hizbullah . . . Nasr al Din is suspected of counseling Hizbullah donors on fundraising efforts and providing donors with specific bank account information where “donors deposits would go directly to Hizbullah,” the department said. He also allegedly arranged the travel of Hizbullah members to Iran.

In addition to Nasr al Din, the Treasury has frozen the assets of another Venezuelan, Fawzi Kana’an, and two travel agencies based there.
