Biden Gives Iran Access To $10 Billion After Iranian-Backed Hamas Terrorists Murder 1,200 Israelis | Eastern North Carolina Now

    President Joe Biden's administration allowed the Islamic Republic of Iran to have access to more than $10 billion in electricity revenues, which comes just weeks after Iranian-backed terrorists carried out one of the worst terrorist attacks in world history against Israel.

    The decision to allow Iran, the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, to have access to the money has generated intense criticism since the money will likely go toward funding terrorism either directly or indirectly, since money is fungible.

    "Five weeks after the October 7 massacre and in the wake of 55 attacks on U.S. forces since October 17, the idea of making $10 billion available to the sponsor of all this evil makes little sense," said Richard Goldberg, a former Trump administration official and senior adviser at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD).

    "Congress rightfully pushed to lock down the $6 billion in Qatar; it should move quickly to lock down this $10 billion too," he added.

    FDD noted that Iran sends Hamas $100+ million per year and gives another $700+ million a year to Hezbollah, an Islamic terrorist organization based in Lebanon that is considered to be the world's most powerful non-state actor.

    Hezbollah recently attempted to carry out terrorist attacks against Jews living in Brazil, but was thwarted after Israel's intelligence services alerted federal law enforcement officials in Brazil.

    The Wall Street Journal reported last month that 500+ terrorists with Hamas were trained by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force (IRGC-QF) in the weeks leading up to the October 7 attack.

    Many of the weapons used in the attack are believed to have been supplied by Iran, and CNN reported this week that a document recovered from a computer found inside a Hamas truck "shows a Hamas military commander requesting a scholarship for Hamas operatives to study engineering, physics and technology at universities in Iran."

    An Israeli intelligence official said that the document was another example of "an elaborate puzzle of a deep infrastructure of building, supporting, financing and training terror proxies by the Iranian regime around the globe and specifically in the Gaza strip."

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
