Indirectly, Americans helped fund terrorists who attacked Jews all at the same time Obama is refusing to strengthen US-Israel ties and reject BDS though it’s called for by law.
Iran is an evil regime that sponsors terrorism throughout the world. Without even a signed agreement or any viable means to prove they will abide by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement, the Obama administration gave them a total of about $150 billion in sanctions relief. He even made certain interest was included for some of the funds.
Obama reached a new low never before seen in an appeasement regime. Even Hitler signed the Munich Pact.
The Islamic Republic of Iran began spending the money we gave them. They are giving $7,000 to each of the families of deceased Palestinian murderers of Israeli Jews and others involved in the stabbing incidents in Israel.
The Iranian ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Fathali said on Wednesday that Tehran will give $7,000 to families of “martyrs of the intifada in occupied Jerusalem” and a further “$30,000 to every family whose home the occupation has demolished for the participation of one of its sons.”
Homes of terrorists in Israeli territory are demolished to discourage terrorism.
He incited more terror, saying “the martyrs’ blood will release the entire Palestine, from the river to the sea.” The Times of Israel reports the story here.
Saddam Hussein was the first to pay $25,000 to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers who killed Israelis
Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon notes that they’re coming for us. Alster quotes Ya’alon: “The Iranian regime, through the Iranian Revolutionary Guard corps, is building a complex terror infrastructure, including [sleeper] cells that are stockpiling arms, intelligence and operatives, and are ready to act on order, including in Europe and America.”
They are coming with the help of the US president who just this past week said he opposes portions of a bipartisan trade bill that would strengthen economic ties between the U.S. and Israel and force trade partners to sever ties with backers of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, an anti-Israel movement that seeks to economically isolate the Jewish state. He will not abide by these portions. He is lawless as we know. Obama said it will legitimize Israeli settlements which even Democrats acknowledge is a lie.
For those who don’t know, Israeli settlements are apartment buildings within Israeli territory that the Palestinian terrorists want.
Even Democrats came through on this one and called out the lying Obama.
“While the Obama Administration has reiterated its opposition to boycotts, divestment campaigns, and sanctions targeting the State of Israel, it has mischaracterized the TPA and Customs bill provisions as making a U.S. policy statement about Israeli settlements,” Sens. Harry Reid (D., Nev.), Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), Ron Wyden (D., Ore.), Ben Cardin (D., Md.), Michael Bennet (D., Colo.), and Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) said in a joint statement released Thursday.
The senators accused the Obama administration of lying about the pro-Israel bill and pushing a false narrative in efforts to oppose it.
“This simply is not the case,” they said. “These provisions are not about Israeli settlements.”
“Rather, consistent with U.S. policy, they are about discouraging politically-motivated commercial actions aimed at delegitimizing Israel and pressuring Israel into unilateral concessions outside the bounds of direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations,” the senators said. “We urge the Administration to implement these provisions as enacted and intended.”
Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), who authored the pro-Israel language along with Rep. Juan Vargas (D., Calif.), criticized the administration for not upholding the will of Congress and the American people.
Yep, he does whatever the hell he wants.
Roskam vows to pursue this.
There is no word from the administration on this yet.
