The threat that a nuclear Iran poses to Israel, the U.S., and the free world is obvious. But the nuclear agreement being made with the Islamic Republic has other disastrous implications. Commentary’s Jonathan Tobin writes that Iran’s terrorist allies are already benefiting from the deal:
[A]mong the chief beneficiaries of a revitalized Iranian economy will be the Islamist regime’s terrorist allies.
The Channel 2 report detailed that Iran has increased its already considerable flow of weapons and cash to its Hezbollah auxiliaries as well as to Hamas. Most troubling is the news that it is not satisfied with helping Hamas rebuild its terror tunnels and replenish its rocket arsenal in Gaza but is also seeking to arm cells of the Islamist group operating in the West Bank. Like Russia’s sale of sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles to Tehran, these moves are part of the inevitable exploitation of Western weakness by an Iranian regime that understands that it has scored a huge victory in the nuclear negotiations. This is a trend that will get only more dangerous as their economy begins to recover after the sanctions disappear.
