Freed Up Iranian Cash Going To Fund Terror
Ever wonder what has become of the $150 billion of Iranian assets that Barack Obama and John Kerry freed up on our behalf? Did Obama or Kerry ever bother to ask – Gee Ayatollah, what do you plan to do with all that extra cash?
Will it go to education or maybe healthcare? Perhaps they intend to use it for roads and bridges or help the less fortunate, both at home and in other much needier nations.
I don’t know about the former, but as it turns out the Iranian Regime does intend on helping the less fortunate. Iran’s Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Fateh Ali announced, “that the world’s foremost terrorist state will be giving $7,000 to the families of ‘martyrs of the intifada in occupied Jerusalem,’ plus another ‘$30,000 to every family whose home the occupation has demolished for the participation of one of its sons.’”
It’s like the Iranian Regime just won the lottery – the largest jackpot in the history of the world and their spreading it around. I wonder if they opted for payments over 20 years or simply took the lump sum.
As it turns out, this was always the intent of Iran – to ramp up funding of terrorists groups like Hamas. And they are so bold and arrogant regarding Obama’s weakness that they are not even attempting to hide their intentions.
It was reported on Israeli TV that Hamas Leaders actually traveled to Tehran to meet the “chief of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Al-Quds Force to discuss financing” for terrorist operations aimed at Israel.
But Ambassador Ali is evidently all for equal opportunity. He announced that the payments would not be strictly for Hamas terrorists. Anyone can join in the fun. Payments would be happily made to any suicide attack on Israelis – regardless of affiliation.
Twenty-nine Israelis and three non-Israelis have been killed in Palestinian terrorist attacks since October, during which over 170 Palestinians have also been killed, at least two-thirds of them while attacking Israelis, and the rest during clashes with troops.
Now that such large sums of money are being offered, it follows that Israel should be bracing for a sharp uptick in suicide attacks against its citizens and infrastructure. Most of the families in those areas don’t have two nickels to rub together. Imagine being offered thousands of dollars and all they have to do is convince one of the family members to take one for the team. Adding that carrot to those already indoctrinated in the hatred of the Jews and Hamas should be able to find plenty of volunteers.
And this is all thanks to Obama and Kerry, who one must therefore conclude are either the dumbest humans alive or hate Israel as much as Iran. Anyone with even an inkling of sense could have seen this coming.
I say this because the Iranian Insurance Plan directly negates the Israeli strategy of rooting out terrorists and destroying their hideouts. With this money it will be relatively easy for “terrorists and their families to find new digs from which to plot future attacks.”
And with all this new cash floating around, would it not make sense for the Iranians to also target the Great Satan? For those unfamiliar – America is the Great Satan. With billions of dollars at their disposal, why would we think they would stop at just attackingIsrael? Is this not the same regime that chanted “Death to America” during the negotiations and still continues the same chant to this day?
Al-Qaeda spent no more than $500,000 on the 9/11 attacks. Imagine what carnage several million or $1 billion could buy.
