Remember when we thought diplomacy with Iran would be a good idea? Yeah, that was hilarious.
We already knew the nation is the largest state sponsor of terror – and that’s according to our own State Department. Even if Iran obeys all tenets of the nuclear deal (unlikely), we can’t stop them from funding the umbrella of terrorist organizations they support. And one in particular is a threat to our greatest ally in the middle east: Israel.
How do we know? The terrorists themselves say so. According to Israel National News: Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah acknowledged on Friday that his group had lost fighters in Syria, but vowed to continue to be involved in the war there.
Speaking in remarks broadcast on the Shiite group’s Al-Manar television and quoted by AFP, Nasrallah said that the offensive on the city of Aleppo was the “greatest battle” in Syria.
He stressed his group would “increase our presence in Aleppo… because the real, strategic, greatest battle is in Aleppo and the surrounding area.”
Nasrallah also admitted his group’s close connections with Iran, denying reports that Hezbollah was low on funds due to sanctions that have been imposed on it by the United States and others.
“We say openly that our funds come directly from Iran. As long as Iran has money, so will Hezbollah have money,” he declared, according to a report on Army Radio.
Hezbollah’s leader has said in the past “If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.” They’re just as genocidal as Hamas when it comes to the Jewish people.
We would never make a deal with terrorists, so why did we make one with their “investors”?
