Turkey and Syria suffered a horrific 7.8 Earthquake killing tens of thousands. As a result, President Joe Biden decided to halt sanctions on the Syrian government beginning this week, which critics say will beef up the ability for terror groups to smuggle in weapons and “prop up dictator Bashar al-Assad and make it easier for his regime to misuse humanitarian assistance” reports Foreign Desk News.

Speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, Republican Senator James Risch from Idaho, a ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that President Biden’s Syria general license “has no controls to prevent diversions that could allow aid money to end up in the hands of the regime. “It is misguided and will be a windfall to Assad.”

Videos are already circulating on social media showing “massive convoys” of trucks “sent by the Iranian-backed Shiite Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah, sending soldiers and supplies to Syria to aid with the earthquake.”

The Foreign Desk reported that the head of the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, Brigadier General Esmail Qaani, was spotted in the western Syrian city of Latakia to observe humanitarian aid and the losses from the earthquake victims, according to various photographs and videos circulating on social media.

The official Twitter account for news outlet Intelli Times tweeted that the IRGC Quds Force Chief was also seen with Mohammad Reza Zahedi, an acting liaison to Hezbollah and Syria’s intelligence on arms shipment.

“Easing sanctions on Assad without guardrails opens the door for the regime to line its pockets without helping those in need,” said Republican Representative Joe Wilson from South Carolina.

“Even worse, this feeds into the Assad regime’s false claims that U.S. sanctions were preventing aid and assistance efforts to the Syrian people.

‘THE ENEMY IS HERE’: Sara Reacts to Biden Backstabbing Bibi and the ‘Death to America’ Chants in Michigan [LISTEN]

Former gubernatorial candidate for Michigan Tudor Dixon and Fox News investigative journalist Sara Carter joined The Sean Hannity Show on Wednesday to discuss the anti-American chants in Dearborn, MI that called for “Death to America.”

Watch the clip below. Listen to Dixon and Carter’s analysis above.

Hannity starts the segment by blasting President Biden for abandoning Israel in its war to eliminate terrorist group Hamas in the wake of the October 7th attacks.

“We now have a radicalized, extreme-leftist party that is demanding that Joe Biden abandon our ally in their war against terrorists! Hamas is a terror organization. They have in their charter the call for the destruction of Israel. And Joe Biden, for a long time now, has been putting pressure on Netanyahu to stop its war on terrorism which puts the entire country of Israel in jeopardy,” Hannity said.

Hannity asks Carter to react to all the knives Bibi has gotten in the back.

“I spent over an hour with Prime Minister Netanyahu … [he] talked about the situation in Israel with the United States and especially the fact that the Biden Administration has been working diligently to undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu in his time of need,” Carter said. “He’s very adamant that they’re going to go into Rafa to [clear out Hamas].”

“The importance of this to the American public is this isn’t about a fight overseas. This is about a fight for the United States of America. The frontline against terrorism is our ally in the Middle East — Israel. Once we turn our back on Israel … it’s going to be our defeat,” Carter says.

“All you have to do is look at what’s happening in the United States and see how people are being radicalized here in this country. There’s antisemitism that is growing. There’s radicalization inside Dearborn, Michigan. And you see people marching in the streets shouting ‘intifada! intifada!'”

“They want the destruction and the elimination of Israel.”
