Hezbollah and Hamas rank at top of Forbes’ ‘Richest Terror Groups’ list

Eight of the ‘Top Ten’ terror groups in terms of income are Muslim, with Hezbollah and Hamas ranked #1 and #3 respectively.

One of the more far-reaching consequences of former President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is on display in Forbes Israel’s latest ranking of the richest terrorist groups in the world, as in 2017 Iran-backed Hezbollah leaped to the top of list with a whopping $1.1 billion in revenue.

That is not to say that all their income stems from Iran. Terrorist organizations in general also fund their purchase of arms, training and salary payments to their members from such criminal activities as drug smuggling, money laundering, kickbacks, kidnappings, ‘protection’, etc., just as organized crime does.

    Track their money. If it has any criminal ties, take it ALL.

    The Muslim world cannot get by without the Western banking system.

    Don’t forget about “charities” that fund them or their own charity front groups many of which are continued to allow to operate in Western countries, (even if a few lose their charitable tax-free status).

      I like how the star/cross from those hypocrites at World Vision was turned upside down in this.

      “World Vision President Richard Stearns earns $451,254. a year (2015), according to Charity Navigator. ”

      Doing very well by doing good. Canadian and Australian country CEOs are paid around half of Stearns salary. I think it would be very instructive to see their expense accounts and see what the donors are paying for when these charity executives go on tour.
