Politicians in Israel are calling for former president Barack Obama to give back his Nobel Peace Prize in the wake of a damning new report, released Sunday by Politico, which details how the Obama administration paved the way for the Iran deal by letting Hezbollah terrorists go free.
The report alleges that the Obama administration undid years of investigations into the terrorist organization and let terrorists walk free in order to appease Iran and help cement Obama’s foreign policy achievement.
According to Politico, “The Obama administration’s backing off on the terrorist organization directly contributed to its growth and enrichment through money laundering and drug trade. It also made Hezbollah much more powerful and dangerous in the region.”
Israel, which has been dealing with Hezbollah terrorists for years, is outraged at Obama over the report.
Below are 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.” — 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.” — 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.” — Former Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren
“Does anyone still doubt why Obama was bad for Israel and how Trump is better for us?” — Communications Minister Ayoob Kara
