Iran

Iran’s obsession with destroying Israel began in 1979 after the violent Islamic Revolution empowered radical fundamentalists committed to dominating the Middle East. Iran’s hatred of Israel and America has been the foundation of its foreign policy ever since. The State Department recognizes Iran as the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. For decades the world sought to isolate Iran and curb its terrorist activities and nuclear weapons ambitions through economic sanctions. But while President Obama was in office, world leaders decided to lift those sanctions in exchange for promises that Iran would halt its nuclear development. Since the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) commonly known as the Iran Deal was signed and implemented, Iran’s aggression against Israel and America has increased. Enriched and emboldened by a fresh influx of over $100 billion to its government, Iran poses a greater danger to both Israel and America.
