During a meeting with American Jewish leaders on Tuesday, President Obama announced that if Congress rejects his nuclear deal with Iranian Supreme leader Ali Khamenei, the result would be the Iranian proxy army known as Hezbollah firing rockets at Tel Aviv.
With the potential for accessing more than $100 billion of assets frozen abroad, Iran has reportedly instructed Hezbollah not to escalate the explosive Middle East climate with any attacks on Israel, according the Saudi newspaper Al-Wanton.
If we accept President Obama’s claim, which Iran’s deal with Hezbollah seems to back up, then we are speaking about stick up – a direct case of negotiating with terrorists. While many of the Obama administration’s points regarding support for the Iran nuclear deal are faulty, this latest reason boils down to agree to a $100 billion ransom or an attack will occur.
Iranian Supreme leader Ali Khamenei, who recently published a book detailing plans to destroy Israel, has done nothing to sell Iran as a peaceful, forward thinking country. With Iranian troops currently occupying parts of Yemen, Syria and Iraq, there can be little doubt about whrere the $100 billion in ransom money will go to.
Despite President Obama’s eagerness to capitulate to the terrorist threats of Iran, the United States is still referred to in the majority of Iranian foreign policy statements as Shaytân-e Bozorg, which translates in English to the Great Satan. Allowing threats of violence to influence a negation with a warring, American hating country is an act of appeasement that will rivals what took place prior to World War 2.
America needs their congressman to spare our incompetent, cowering president from living up to the title of the next Neville Chamberlain.
