Iran's War on Israel: Hamas Is a Weapon, and the Palestinians Are Pawns

(Washington Times) Clifford D. May - Iran's rulers fund, arm and instruct Hamas, which rules Gaza, and has fired more than 3,000 rockets at Israeli cities over recent days. Iran's rulers fund, arm and instruct Hizbullah, which dominates Lebanon. Iran's rulers fund, arm and instruct Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian dictator who has killed hundreds of thousands of his own citizens. Iran's rulers fund, arm and instruct Houthi rebels in Yemen. Do you detect a pattern here? U.S. envoys in Vienna are conducting negotiations with Iran's rulers, offering them billions of dollars in exchange for permitting the U.S. to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal. Under that deal, Iran's rulers promise to curtail - just for a few years - some aspects of their nuclear weapons development program. They do not promise to refrain from further funding, arming and instructing the Houthis, the Assad regime, Hizbullah, Hamas, or Palestinian Islamic Jihad. They will use whatever funds flow their way to further these projects with groups committed to "Death to Israel" and "Death to America!"
