One of the worries about the crap-sandwich known as the P5+1 deal with Iran is that the rogue regime will take the $150 billion dollars of cash it will get as part of the deal and give most of it to its terrorist puppets. Well that fear should be erased because the terrorist-supporting regime isn’t waiting to get the cash bonus, it is already upping its funding of terrorist groups.
In anticipation of the Obama concession windfall, since the deal was signed Iran has greatly upped its military contributions to Hamas and Hezbollah. According to the Times Of Israel:
In the years before the deal was signed, the crippling sanctions limited this support, which had significantly diminished along with Iran’s economy. But Tehran’s belief that tens, or hundreds, of billions of dollars will flow into the country in the coming years as a result of sanctions relief has led to a decision to boost the cash flow to these terror organizations.
With the new cash, Hezbollah which already has 150,000 rockets pointed at Israel, has been able to secure advanced technology weapons:
Al-Rai, a Kuwaiti newspaper, reported Saturday that Hezbollah has received all the advanced weaponry that Syria has obtained from the Russians. The report cited a security source involved in the fighting in Zabadani, on the Syria-Lebanon border, where Hezbollah is fighting the al-Nusra Front, the Islamic State, and other groups. It is evidently the growing Iranian financial support that is enabling the Lebanese Shiite militia to purchase advanced weapons, including ones that were hitherto outside of its reach.
The increased Iranian financial support for Hezbollah in the wake of the deal is not unrelated to other political developments in the region. The growing sense of security in Iran with regard to its political status has also been bolstered by a Russian decision to increase its involvement in Syria, and may be what drove Iran to send hundreds of members of its Revolutionary Guard Corps to play an active role in the Syria fighting. Iran, along with Hezbollah and Moscow, has decided to dispatch sizable forces to the Syrian front in the past few weeks to prevent the collapse of Bashar Assad’s regime.
But Iran also has another responsibility they are the only Syrian ally that is trying to build terror cells to attack Israel from the Golan Heights:
This does not mean that the Syrian president is aware of these attempts or green-lighted them. But for Israel, that does not matter. Tehran is investing more effort and money after the nuclear deal to carry out attacks against Israel from the Golan, even under Assad’s nose.
As regards the Palestinians, in the past two months, Iran has sent suitcases of cash – literally – to Hamas’s military wing in Gaza. Not everyone is happy about this, including some Hamas officials. Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, who was always the man who controlled the money, has found himself outside the circle of Iranian funding over the summer. Tehran, which was none too pleased by his visit to Saudi Arabia and meeting with King Salman, decided to take revenge on him in an original way. It bypassed Mashaal and has handed over the suitcases, by way of couriers, directly to the leaders of the group’s military wing in the Gaza Strip.
Boy oh boy, what a great bunch of guys these new friends of President Obama are. Without even being asked and without even getting their money yet they are already setting up their buddies for new attacks against Israel. And when the attacks come, all those Democrats who voted for the agreement, along with its supporters in the administration will have that blood on their hands. Not that they would care, as we have learned by the P5+1 discussion in Congress, the Democrats don’t give a rat’s ass about Jewish blood.
