Michigan, USA - Terrorist Haven?

According to the Detroit Free Press, Osama Siblani, publisher of The Arab American News
compares Hizballah with America's founding fathers, such as George Washington, saying, "Your terrorist could be my freedom fighter. A terrorist to the Israelis could be a freedom fighter of mine."
On October 23, 1983, Hezbollah, designated a terrorist organization by the United States, attacked and murdered 241 American servicemen.

The Detroit Free Press went on to say that
The FBI in Detroit says Hizballah has a presence in Michigan, and the bureau has set up a division to investigate the Shi'ite Muslim group. In recent cases, federal agents are looking at ties to Sheikh Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah, a Shi'ite Muslim cleric in Lebanon who the U.S. government says is a Hizballah leader. The FBI in Detroit also has divisions that investigate Hamas and Al Qaeda, but those terrorist groups are not cited as often as Hizballah in local cases.
