Obama In Hot Water From Israel, Country Issues DEMAND As Disgusting Details Unveiled

Israel is demanding that Obama give back the Nobel Peace Prize.

Israel is demanding that Obama give back the Nobel Peace Prize.

President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10, 2009. Since this date, many have questioned whether this was a valid honor he should have received. He was only the fourth president to win the award, and some of the reasons he earned the honor seemed to be a bit presumptive.

He was awarded the prize for his “…extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” As the details about Hezbollah and his dealing with the terrorist in the area emerged, many from Israel are demanding that he return the award. It seems some of what he promised to achieve came at the cost of the people of Israel.

Over the weekend a report surfaced about issues tied to an investigation of the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah. It seems that an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking and other criminal activities via the well-connected group was derailed by Obama’s desire to work with the people of Iran to further his agenda.

Even as Hezbollah was bringing massive amounts of cocaine into the United States, the White House fought to stop the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) from investigating. The DEA had lofty ideas about how to target the organization and had dubbed their investigation Project Cassandra.

Over the weekend a report surfaced about issues tied to an investigation of the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah. It seems that an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking and other criminal activities via the well-connected group was derailed by Obama’s desire to work with the people of Iran to further his agenda.

Even as Hezbollah was bringing massive amounts of cocaine into the United States, the White House fought to stop the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) from investigating. The DEA had lofty ideas about how to target the organization and had dubbed their investigation Project Cassandra.

The DEA was targeting the efforts of Hezbollah based on the fact that estimated them making over a billion dollars from illegal activities. This included drug trafficking, gun trafficking, and money laundering. All of these illicit activities fed into their funds for terrorism.

To avoid conflict with Iran as Obama attempted to negotiate an end to their nuclear programs, the work of Project Cassandra became a non-priority. This meant the group was primarily left to do as they pleased and the people of Israel took the brunt of their terrorist efforts.

While Obama was being held out as a hero for his work with Iran, little was said about the price the people of Israel paid for the lack of follow through in regards to investigating Hezbollah. Because the White House backed off the investigation, the group was allowed to grow and prosper. They continued to fund their terrorist efforts via drug sales, illegal gun trading and money laundering.

The fact that Obama was willing to leave the people of Israel open to ongoing abuse at the hands of Hezbollah to remain on good terms with Iran is troubling at best. This does not say much for the idea that Obama improved relationships worldwide or made things better. The Israeli Communications Minister Ayoob Kara summed the issue up by simply asking:

“Does anyone still doubt why Obama was bad for Israel and how Trump is better for us?”

Beyond fundamental questions about Obama’s lack of care for the people of Israel, many within the country have asked for the removal of his Nobel Peace Prize. It hardly seems logical for the award to remain valid given the new information that confirms the worst fears of the people of Israel. Politicians from all over the area have stepped forward to ask the international community to take back the award. They have also asked Barack Obama directly to forfeit the award.

The backlash from Israel against Obama has hit the media recently and seemed to have no end in sight. Some of the most significant arguments for his removal as a Nobel Peace Prize honorary include the following feedback:

“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

As shocking as the concerns over Hezbollah are, this is not the first time there have been issues with Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize. The fact that he was awarded the honor during his first year in office is suspect. What becomes even the more significant problem is that even though he was notified about being honored with the award a little over eight months into his first term, in all reality the application for the award was turned in during the first two weeks of his first term.

The purpose of the award was to honor his efforts and impact on the international community. It is far-reaching to assume he did so much in his first two weeks of office that his award was valid. He essentially was given the award to force him into action instead of to recognize any progress made.
