Looking into the future, Obama is going to make Hitler look like a goof-off.

“IRAN DEAL WORTH MORE THAN ALL U.S. AID TO ISRAEL SINCE 1948,” By Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart, June 27, 2015

The Iran deal will provide Iran with a cash windfall as sanctions are eased and assets are unfrozen. The total amount is estimated to be as high as $150 billion. If so, the Iran deal would give more cash to Iran than the $124.3 billion U.S. has given in total aid to Israel since 1948.

The exact amount that Iran would gain through the unfreezing of its foreign assets is a matter of some dispute. The Israeli ambassador has put the number at $150 billion; the Obama administration puts the number at $50 billion, since some of Iran’s assets “have already been obligated, including for projects with China,” the New York Times reports. Others say the number is higher; Foreign Policy estimated the number at “north of $120 billion,” with an additional $20 billion per year in oil revenues, making the deal worth $420 billion over 15 years.

If “north of $120 billion” is the best estimate, that would equal or surpass the total amount of U.S. aid to Israel since the country has been in existence, which the Congressional Research Service calculated to be $124.3 billion (in nominal terms) as of 2015. Even at the Obama administration’s low estimate, the cash freed to Iran by the deal would surpass total U.S. aid to Israel for the past 15 years, at minimum (roughly $3 billion per year).

It is true that the cash that Iran will access is “their own money,” as Secretary of State John Kerry has argued. Yet much of Israel’s aid is spent back in the U.S.–at least 75 percent of military aid, by law. In that sense, a large proportion of aid to Israel comes back as “our money” as well. Iran, of course, is not obligated to spend any of its foreign currency in the United States, and is certain to spend some of it on its terrorist proxies throughout the Middle East, as even the White House has conceded.

Given how controversial aid to Israel has become on the left (and portions of the right), the sheer scale of Iran’s benefits ought to give pause to supporters of the deal.

    Iran: Nuke Deal Permits Cheating on Arms, Missiles

    Deal puts ‘Zionist regime in irrecoverable danger’

    Zarif, who spoke to the country’s parliament about the terms of the
    nuclear deal, also bragged that the finalization of the accord “puts the
    Zionist Regime in an irrecoverable danger,” according to an independent
    translation of his Persian language remarks provided to the Washington Free

    there was hope ; if the Russians love their Childeren too,

    Well the Russia’s loved their kids and when their economy failed the threat of war passed,

    Now Iran has the money and a history of Iraq-Iran was of sending kids to the slaughter and Obama paving their way to the bomb,,, when they get it they will use it there is no doubt,

  • FROM HERE ON IN

    those who complain that Israel is a mooching welfare recipient of the US and supports this dangerous deal with Iran will look like a fool with his head up his a*s.

    Republican Establishment (wimp) department:

    Scott Walker On Huckabee “Oven” Comment: “I’m Certainly Not Gonna Say It”

    “I’m gonna tell you what I’m for and you’re not hearing me use that sort of language.”

    ‘It’s just wrong,’ Jeb Bush says of Mike Huckabee’s Holocaust reference. Marco Rubio declines to comment.

  • so what

    “Iran deal worth more than all U.S. aid to Israel since 1948”

    Such are the mathematical “estimates” of one Jewish writer, one (anonymous) Israeli ambassador, and one Jewish businessman, David Rothkopf.

    But in conclusion, “It is true that the cash that Iran will access is their own money.”

    I see what you did there.

    And still today, 49% of Americans approve of Obama. It’s all those people that voted for him and don’t have a clue. All the uneducated give-me and give-me more. And forget the Liberals, they can’t even think out of the box. As to Obama, he’s living in their world; he told Africans in a speech that he would easily win a third term.

    The difference is that it is Iran’s money while the $236 Billion given to Israel since its creation is welfare.
