Ο Tareck El Aissami είναι ένας Μαρξιστής πολιτικός από την Βενεζουέλα, ο οποίος έχει ασπαστεί το Ισλάμ, εξού και το όνομα, και είναι ο άνθρωπος του Ιράν, της Βενεζουέλας και της Χεζμπολάχ στην Βενεζουέλα. Ο Aissami βοηθάει την Χεζμπολάχ να προωθεί τα ναρκωτικά της Κολομβίας στην Μέση Ανατολή και τις ΗΠΑ, και επίσης ξεπλένει μαύρο χρήμα της Χεζμπολάχ μέσω του τραπεζικού συστήματος της Βενεζουέλας, και μέσω των δεκάδων επιχειρήσεων που χρησιμοποιεί ως βιτρίνα.

Ο Ούγκο Τσάβεζ είχε διορίσει τον Tareck El Aissami σε κρίσιμες θέσεις στις κυβερνήσεις της Βενεζουέλας, και τον είχε κάνει και υπουργό. Αλλά μετά την εκλογή Τραμπ, ο Μαδούρο έκανε τον Tareck El Aissami αντιπρόεδρο, καθώς είναι πολύ πιθανόν το Ιράν και οι ΗΠΑ να συγκρουστούν στο Ιράκ. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι ο Μαδούρο προορίζει τον Aissami για διάδοχο του.
Οι ΗΠΑ επέβαλλαν οικονομικές κυρώσεις στον Tareck El Aissami, και του πάγωσαν τα περιουσιακά του στοιχεία στις ΗΠΑ. Βλέπε Wall Street Journal “U.S. Puts Venezuelan Vice President Tareck El Aissami on Sanctions List”, Φεβρουάριος 2017.

Closes Ranks Around Sanctioned Vice President, Tareck El Aissami”, Φεβρουάριος 2017 Venezuela
President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela on Tuesday defended his second-in-command, who has been sanctioned by the
over allegations that he is a narcotics trafficker, and said he would demand a public apology from the American government. United States
Vice President Tareck El Aissami was blacklisted on Monday by the Treasury Department, which said that Mr. El Aissami and an associate had moved drugs within Venezuela and had helped protect international kingpins.
The moves blocked Americans from doing business with Mr. El Aissami, 42, and froze his assets in the
, which American officials said totaled in the tens of millions of dollars. Sanctions against such a high-ranking Venezuelan represented what analysts considered a first salvo against the Maduro government by the Trump administration at the urging of many in Congress. United States
On Tuesday, Mr. Maduro went on national television to express his anger.
Venezuela will respond, step by step, with balance and force,” he said, adding that he had ordered his foreign minister to call the chargé d’affaires of the United States Embassy in to issue a formal complaint. “They will retract and apologize publicly to our vice president,” Mr. Maduro said. (The two countries have not had ambassadors in each other’s capitals for nearly a decade.) Caracas
The president also offered a spirited defense of Mr. El Aissami, saying that in previous posts in the government, including at the Interior Ministry, he had led campaigns against drug trafficking in
. More than 100 kingpins have been caught in Venezuela Venezuela during Mr. El Aissami’s tenure in the government, the president said, with many extradited to the . United States
Mr. El Aissami “delivered the strongest blows against the heads of drug trafficking,” Mr. Maduro said.
The sanctions, announced on Monday by the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, described Mr. El Aissami as a “drug trafficker” and a “kingpin” who had used his past positions of power, which also included a state governorship, to move large quantities of narcotics.
Among the accusations were that he had protected a Colombian drug lord and coordinated shipments to the Zetas drug cartel in
. He also “facilitated shipments of narcotics from Mexico Venezuela, to include control over planes that leave from a Venezuelan air base, as well as control of drug routes through the ports in ,” the office said. Venezuela
On Twitter on Tuesday, Mr. El Aissami called the accusations “infamy and aggression,” but he said he would focus his attention on fixing
’s economic collapse. Venezuela
“May we not be distracted by these miserable provocations,” he wrote. “Our principal job is to work with @NicolasMaduro in the economic recovery.”
In its later years, the Obama administration avoided antagonizing
with new sanctions, often preferring to ignore officials entirely, a policy it said gave the leftist government fewer opportunities to seize on American actions for its own propaganda. Venezuela
“THIS CHARISMATIC MUSLIM MARXIST TERRORIST DRUG SMUGGLER SHOULD BE THE DEM 2020 FAVORITE”, Ιανουάριος 2017
The great big question in national politics now is 2020. Will it be Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren? But an unlikely candidate has emerged south of the border.
The appointment of Tareck El Aissami, formerly the governor of Aragua state, means that if he could become the country’s president if the increasingly-embattled Nicholas Maduro is recalled or steps down.
If you're wondering why a guy named Tarek El Aissami is a politician in
, there's an easy answer. It involves the second favorite Dem dictator named Hussein. Venezuela
But the crucial part is that Tarek has it all. He's so hated that appointing him as VP was a poison pill move by
's insane Marxist dictator, who talks to birds and starves his people, to prevent him from being recalled. Venezuela
And he's into drug smuggling (common sense sentencing reform) and terrorism (battling Islamophobia through explosive awareness campaigns) and if he sneaks across the border, he could even be an illegal alien. He truly has it all.
The Democrats would be fools to let this opportunity pass them by. Why settle for second rate imitations of Obama like Cory Booker. Go for the real thing. An actual Marxist Muslim allegedly involved in drugs and terrorism. If he's not the front runner for the Dem nomination in 2020, I'll eat my dinner. Which is more than most Venezuelans living under Socialism can do.
“A suspected terrorist and drug trafficker just became
's vice president”, Ιανουάριος 2017 Venezuela

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, the successor to the late socialist President Hugo Chavez, announced on Wednesday that former minister Tareck El Aissami would become vice president of the country.
That means that, in a country of complete and utter chaos — where people are starving, healthcare is nonexistent, electricity is scarce, and vigilante justice is becoming a norm — a suspected terrorist is one heartbeat away from the highest office in the land.
El Aissami is a known entity in the world of
intelligence. He is allegedly a part of US Venezuela's state drug-trafficking network and has ties to Iran, , and Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah. Syria
And if Maduro is ousted, as his opposition is calling for, El Aissami will become the president of a failed state in
's backyard. America
A little-discussed feature, at least here in the
, of Chavez's socialist regime was its ties to hardline Islamists. For example, from 2007 to at least 2010, there was a flight from US Caracas, Venezuela, to Tehran, Iran, that made a stop in . Damascus, Syria
Chavez and former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly called it "Aeroterror." Only government officials with a special clearance were permitted to fly on it, and there were often very few passengers. The flights mostly carried drugs, weapons, cash and terrorists, according to
government testimony and a report by Brazilian paper Veja. US

From 2007 to at least 2010, there was a flight from
Caracas, Venezuela to Tehran, Iran that made a stop in . Damascus, Syria
Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly called it 'Aeroterror.' Only government officials with a special clearance were permitted to fly on it, and there were often very few passengers.
Instead, according to
government testimony and a report by Brazilian paper Veja, the plane was laden with drugs, weapons, and cash. US
Since the mysterious death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman in January,
Iran's presence in South America has come into focus. Nisman died the day before he planned to testify that the Argentine government had covered up Iran's involvement in a 1994 terrorist attack. He had spent about a decade investigating Iran and Hezbollah's growing presence in the Western hemisphere. Buenos Aires
High-level Venezuelan defectors then started talking to Veja journalist Leonardo Coutinho. They told Veja that Aeroterror came to be a biweekly flight that carried drugs and cash to finance
Iran's activities in South America, and that it would stop in Damascus to pick up fake passports and other documents to ensure that Iran's agents could move freely once they arrived in . Caracas
"Not only is [the Veja report] credible, but it underscores the allegations prosecutor Nisman put forth about Iran's longstanding desire to have Argentina restart nuclear cooperation with Iran," Toby Dershowitz of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told Business Insider.
Testimony from diplomats and Nisman over the years corroborates Veja's work.
"The Venezuelan state-owned airline, Conviasa, operates regular service from
Caracas to Damascus and Tehran – providing , Hezbollah, and associated narco-traffickers a surreptitious means to move personnel, weapons, contraband and other materiel," former Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere Roger F. Noriega said in Senate testimony back in 2012. Iran
Noriega continued: "Mr. Chairman, our project has shared substantial information about these aforementioned threats with
government officials — either directly or through Members of Congress. Quite frankly, too often the attitude we have encountered has been one of skepticism or indifference." U.S.
What Nisman was about to report before he died — an exhaustive report on Iranian orchestration of the 1994
bombing that followed a 502 page report he published back in 2013 — also corroborates the Aeroterror claims. Buenos Aires
Before that, Nisman published a report on the same subjects that he took to Interpol in 2007 — Iranian officials threatened to arrest Nisman after it was presented.
Reports indicate that Chavez and Ahmadinejad planned Aeroterror at a meeting
Caracas back in 2007, during which Ahmadinejad also asked Chavez to help him get Argentina to help with its nuclear program. Since then, Iran Iran has only strengthened its ties to South America.
"The DOJ and other USG agencies should be concerned about who killed a prosecutor with whom it had an important relationship and whether it was aimed at silencing him and his work implicating
," Dershowitz said. "Nisman's work was akin to a canary in a coal mine, and his suspicious death is a matter I hope the next attorney general and others will pursue impartially even if it comes at an inconvenient time as the P5+1 negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran ." Iran
Nisman tried to track the network of Mohsen Rabbani, who he believed led
Iran's cell in Latin America and was an architect of the 1994 bombing.
Iranian operatives eventually reached
Washington DC in 2011, when Tehran recruited a man to attempt the assassination of a Saudi ambassador at an upscale restaurant. Georgetown
Noriega, the former Assistant Secretary of State for
Western Hemisphere affairs, mentioned the threat of this Iranian network in the West during his 2012 Senate testimony:
"Chávez’s petro-diplomacy has paved the way for Ahmadinejad to cultivate partnerships with anti-U.S. regimes in
Cuba, Ecuador, , Nicaragua et al. Today, a shadowy network of commercial and industrial enterprises in several countries affords Bolivia Iran a physical presence in relatively close proximity to the ," he said. United States
Iran is well- positioned to use its relationships with these countries to pose a direct threat to territory, strategic waterways and American allies." U.S.
Significantly, the status of this network — and those shady flights to and from
— is unclear to this day. Tehran
