Iran’s Plans to Control a Palestinian State
- The Iran nuclear deal, marking its first anniversary, does not appear to have had a calming effect on the Middle East.
- Iran funnels money to Hamas and Islamic Jihad because they share its desire to eliminate Israel and replace it with an Islamic empire. The Iranian leaders want to see Hamas killing Jews every day, with no break. Ironically, Hamas has become too “moderate” for the Iranian leadership because it is not doing enough to drive Jews out of the region.
