The upside is both the husband and wife will know where one another is at all times. The Ohio couple is serving time for trying to fund Hizbollah’s terrorist efforts against Israel.

Hor I. Akl was sentenced yesterday to 75 months in prison for scheming with wife Amera to send hundreds of thousands of dollars to the designated foreign terrorist organization Hizballah, announced Ohio U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach and Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Cleveland Division Stephen Anthony.

The two plotted with a confidential source working for the FBI in 2009-10 to hide bundles of money in a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer, then send the car on a container ship to Lebanese Hizbollah leaders.

Amera Akl, who told the FBI source she dreamed of martyring herself, is currently serving a 40 month sentence for conspiracy.

“Money is the lifeblood of terrorist organizations, and stopping the flow is a key component to choking off these organizations,” said U.S. Attorney Dettelbach.
