The Shocking Fallout From Iran Sanctions

Sanctions against Iran are making huge impacts on its foreign policy in the Middle East: Hamas’ funding from Iran has been virtually cut off. Fox News reports:

Newly declassified intelligence shows that Palestinian terror group Hamas had to introduce “austerity plans” due to lack of funding from the Iranian regime.

State Department officials say the intelligence that was shared exclusively with Fox News reveals Tehran’s diminishing resources and influence within the region, prompting cutbacks among groups backed by the regime.

This comes amid a tough sanctions regime introduced by the U.S., which sent the country into a recession, with inflation topping 50 percent.

Due to lack of funding from Iran, Hamas had to introduce “austerity plans” while other Shia militia groups were told by Iran that they need to find other sources of revenue as Iran is no longer in a position to provide them the funds.

This is proof that tough sanctions can accomplish many goals in foreign affairs without resorting to military adventurism, as was the case in Libya and almost was Syria.

President Trump is God’s Gift to America. Trust him and get behind him 1000%. Look at all the good he has accomplished in only two years as our president and think about how much more he could have accomplished if he wasn’t obstructed by the Democratic Communist Party. We must take back the House of Representatives and keep it Republican, it is the only way to save our precious country. Remember this,” a vote for a Democrat is a vote for Communism,” its just as simple as that. Sincerely, Martin Korab

Martin, you are so right! I am astonished at what Presiden Trump has been able to accomplish in spite of all the Dems obstruction at every turn. He is an amazing president and to think the life he gave up to do this out of love for America. WE owe him our greatest support-finally someone who does what he promised to do.
I pray for Trump every day and for the 2020 election to keep him in power. I also hope he has someone in mind to carry on his great work following himself. And unlike others he is not getting rich from being President as he doesn’t even take the salary he is entitled too. I would give anything to have 5 minutes to talk with him as he would help my situation I’m sure. It’s ridiculous that I don’t get spousal SS benefits because of an $1100 pension. I am struggling when I shouldn’t have to struggle.

Now the every day people in Iran may feel the pinch of sanctions but the military will have all the funds they need or want thanks to Russia. It seems some only want o spread the things that make it look like a big success, but in fact the Revolutionary Guard the top Military in Iran demand and get any and everything they want, and the people they fund will also get the things they need.
I notice this article is only talking about Hamas which effects Israel. When the USA is the only Country in the entire World who thinks Israel is right in their actions toward the Palestine people then some should get their heads educated to the facts not the BS put out by the religious right.

Will we be surprised if Maxipad and Ilan OhNo and Occassional Cortex scream that these sanctions are making Iranian babies STARVE? I am SO PROUD of President Trump for DOING rather than wringing his hands — as past presidents did. Or WORSE as Obarrassment did. God please continur to guide him! He’s OUR President, and I LIKE IT! M.A.G.A.

This is evidence that Iran was funneling money over to support terrorism. Now that the USA has pulled out of the crazy Iranian deal, all of the terrorism funding is drying up. This is great news for the USA and everyone else. Yet, the dimwitted Democrats were fighting to keep the funding going. Look no further than the traitor John Kerry who has risked criminal charges trying to protect Iran and their funding of terrorism. Thank God for President Trump! #Trump2020.

POTUS DJT IS BEST For USA IN
Many MANY Yrs.
I Stand by ‘statement’ BOLTON War monger,
that continues to UPSET Foreign Relations, IS An
DISASTER & Aggravates Our President.
Bolton/ Pompeo Do NOT ‘get along’ But
Pompeo ‘tolerates’ Bolton.
Bolton ‘thinks’ he has More Power than
Sec. of State Pompeo, & he (bolton) DOES NOT
HAVE MORE Power than Sec.State.
Bolton NEEDS a PERMANENT ‘LEAVE of ABSENCE’.
