Terrorist Chief of Hezbollah: ‘As Long as Iran Has Money, We Will Have Money’, courtesy of Barack Obama

This is pretty much is a certainty thanks to the horrid nuke deal Barack Obama has made with Iran. 
In releasing 150 billion dollars in Iranian funds, Barack Obama has funded terrorism sponsored by Iran.  I don’t see how a rational person can deny this fact.    

CNS News reports the leader of Hezbollah, in a rare public admission, has boasted that due to Iran’s generous support, new U.S. sanctions targeting his group – a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization – will have no impact.

In a televised speech Friday, Hasan Nasrallah dismissed as “childish dreams” claims in some Lebanese and regional media about Hezbollah facing financial collapse as a result of sanctions legislation enacted late last year.

“We are open about the fact that Hezbollah’s budget, its income, its expenses, everything it eats and drinks, its weapons and rockets, are from the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Hezbollah’s official Al Ahed newspaper quoted him as saying.

“As long as Iran has money we will have money,” Nasrallah added. “Hezbollah gets its money and arms from Iran, as long as Iran has money, so does Hezbollah.”

Obama administration officials have conceded that funds released to Iran under the nuclear deal may benefit terrorist groups like Hezbollah, although they also suggested the impact would be limited as Tehran had more pressing economic priorities.

“If President Rouhani and his administration do not [use the freed-up funds to] take care of the people of Iran, they will have an enormous problem,” Secretary of State John Kerry told the BBC shortly after the nuclear deal was announced last July.
