Hard to stop the aid

Two years ago, we predicted Hezbollah’s takeover of the Lebanese government. Under the Western pressure, Hezbollah was nominally excluded from the government although the terrorist group still controlled it.

After Obama’s massive failures in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Yemen, Hezbollah no longer felt the need to pretend to comply with his wishes. Lebanon now has a government with a Hezbollah majority. The US, however, cannot stop its aid to Lebanon, at least the non-military part. And significant arms deliveries from the previous military aid will now fall to Hezbollah.

America faces a similar problem in Egypt, which remains a recipient of $1.2 billion in aid despite its intense hostility toward the US and Israel. Likewise the PA continues to receive US and Israeli aid despite the Fatah-Hamas unity deal.
