After a damning report released by Politico on Sunday showed how the Obama administration undid years of investigations into the terrorist organization Hezbollah in order to appease Iran and pave the way for the Iran deal, reports Zero Hedge.
The report says that the Obama administration let terrorists walk free and halted law enforcement efforts against Hezbollah to help cement the former president’s foreign policy achievement.
According to the Politico story, since Obama backed off the terrorist group, it directly contributed to its growth and enrichment through money laundering and drug trade.
With more money flowing into the country because of the increase in the drug trade as well the terrorist group has gained more power in the region and has become increasingly more dangerous.
Politicians in Israel, which is the country that Hezbollah is trying to overcome and take over and has been the victim of several attacks, have lashed out at Barack Obama over the report.
Some of the politicians have even called for Obama to return his Nobel Peace Prize, which he received when he first became president for doing absolutely nothing.
Here are some statements from prominent Israeli politicians, according to the Jerusalem Post.
“Obama must return his Nobel Peace Prize. Israel warned repeatedly that there can be no connection between the nuclear deal and anti-terror activity, certainly against Hezbollah…We also warned of this specifically, because of the proven link between Hezbollah and Iran,” said Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid.
“Up until the Obama Administration, every American President fought terrorism uncompromisingly…I am convinced that the Trump Administration will not turn from that tradition and the outrageous and mistaken policy that was revealed this week will not be repeated,” said Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi.
“It was clear that the government was willing to do anything to reach an agreement, including ignoring Iranian terror that took the lives of hundreds of Americans and Israelis and hundreds of thousands of Syrians. This exposée and others that may be published in the future must strengthen our resolve…[to] change this dangerous agreement,” said Former Israeli ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren.
“Does anyone still doubt why Obama was bad for Israel and how Trump is better for us?” said Communications Minister Ayoob Kara.
