Arutz Sheva: “Iran has received more than $10 billion in sanctions relief from around the world in the form of cash and gold in the past three years, since it signed a preliminary nuclear deal with world powers, The Wall Street Journal has revealed.
The large shipments of gold and cash, from oil funds unfrozen in numerous countries, represent the kind of financial relief that made Iran’s leaders eager to complete the international nuclear accord, officials told the newspaper.”
Opinion: I like to call it Obamacash: read on and you will see why.
The Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) determined on January 1 that Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy, remains the most serious conventional threat to Israel. According to the report, Hezbollah has rockets that can reach any range, precision-guided missiles, attack and suicide drones and the best Russian-made air defense systems.
Hezbollah ground units are training to conquer Israeli towns and cities.
A trip down memory lane:
December 2010: John Brennan, Deputy National Security Adviser, who once claimed that ‘Islam helped shape his world view’, expressed a desire to encourage “moderate elements” of Hezbollah, which was then a State Department-designated terrorist organization.
February, 2013: John Brennan was named president Barack Obama’s nominee to head the CIA. He repeatedly expressed a hope that “moderates” within Iran and its terror proxy Hezbollah would steer their respective constituencies away from terrorism.
Domestically, Brennan claimed that radical Islam did not pose its own, unique threat to American security.
January 2014: An annual report delivered to the US Senate by James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats.
March 2015: An annual security assessment presented to the U.S. Senate by James Clapper, excluded Iran and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah from its list of terror threats to U.S. interests.
April 2015: The Iran nuclear deal framework – a preliminary framework agreement reached and Obamacash began flowing to Iran.
So it was a set-up from day one of the Obama administration. In 2009 Obama legitimized the Muslim Brotherhood, parent group of Hamas, and immediately began the process of legitimizing Iran and its proxy Hezbollah which dominates southern Lebanon.
Obama refused to respond to protests of Iran’s 2009 election despite signs imploring him to do so in English.
Three thousand years ago a temple priest named Asaph prophesied that the inhabitants of Tyre (the ancient name for Lebanon) would be in league with Philistia (Gaza) which is inhabited by Hamas, to launch an attack on Israel.
Both Hezbollah and Hamas are funded by Iran. Wars cost money and $10 billion buys a lot of weapons.
