Yeah, helping Iran so they can give even more money to Hamas is a really good idea

The Obama Administration is working tirelessly to undermine Israel and to promote the interests of Iran through their shonky deal.

All the while Iran has plenty of millions to throw the way of Hamas to help them re-arm after last years attacks from Gaza on Israel.

Iran has sent Hamas’s military wing tens of millions of dollars to help it rebuild the network of tunnels in Gaza destroyed by Israel’s invasion last summer, intelligence sources have told The Sunday Telegraph.

It is also funding new missile supplies to replenish stocks used to bombard residential neighbourhoods in Israel during the war, code-named Operation Protective Edge by Israel.

The renewed funding is a sign that the two old allies are putting behind them a rift caused by the conflict in Syria, where Shia Iran is backing President Bashar al-Assad against Hamas’s mainly Sunni allies.

Iran has sponsored Hamas’s military operations for years, despite the contradiction that Hamas is part of the worldwide, Sunni-supremacist Muslim Brotherhood, while Iran is Shia.

Hamas’s leader, Khaled Meshaal, who left Damascus for Qatar after falling out with the Assad regime, has often fought with Hamas’s military wing over the strength of the Iranian connection.

However, with the Sunni Arab world joining forces against Iran, led by Saudi Arabia and President Abdelfattah el-Sisi of Egypt, who are both hostile to Hamas, the Palestinian militant group has been left little option but to accept the Iranian largesse.  

Haaretz also reports on the rearming effort:

Iran has allocated millions of dollars to Hamas’ military wing for the rebuilding of the tunnels destroyed by Israel during last summer’s war in Gaza, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

Citing intelligence sources, the report said Iran was also funding new missile supplies to help restock projectile weapons used by the militant organization to target Israeli civilian population during Israel’s Operation Protective Edge.

Following the military operation in Gaza, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon had estimated that Hamas retained 2,000 rockets and mortars – about 20 percent of the 10,000 projectiles it had before the war. Thousands of these were either fired at Israel during the 50-day war or destroyed in Israeli attacks on Gaza.

During the fighting, the Israeli army destroyed 32 attack tunnels that were located by Israeli intelligence.

A resurgent economy in Iran means more money and arms for Hamas and more civilian deaths in Israel.

No wonder Israel is at loggerheads with the United States.
