Issam Fares: Supporter of Hezbullah and Hillary Clinton

A large donor to the Clinton Foundation is also a large donor to Hezbullah and a former Deputy Prime Minister of Lebanon. His name is Issam Fares.
One of the contributors to the Clinton Foundation, according to an analysis of known donors by Joseph Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon, is Issam Fares, a Lebanese billionaire and philanthropist who has donated between $1 million and $5 million.
Some would question the sincerity of his philanthropy, since he is very selective about which of his fellow human beings he wishes to benefit and which he wants to see wiped off the face of the earth.
His connections to the Iranian terrorist sock-puppet Hezbollah and his animus towards our ally Israel speak volumes about his true intentions.
Fares was deputy prime minister of Lebanon and part of the pro-Syrian government of Prime Minister Omar Karami from 2001 to 2005. He was also a close associate of Maj. Gen. Ghazi Kanaan of Syrian intelligence during the time the Syrian army occupied Lebanon.
Two weeks after the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri on Feb. 14, 2005, the Karami government resigned. Hariri's assassination at the hands of Syrian supporters and operatives inspired the Cedar Revolution, spontaneous protests that forced the withdrawal of Syrian forces and led to a brief period of calm before Hezbollah rushed in to fill the void left by Syria.
Fares is a longtime friend and supporter of Hezbollah, which before Sept. 11, 2001, had been responsible for more American deaths than any terrorist group on the planet. Hezbollah was responsible for the bombing in Beirut on Oct. 24, 1983, which killed 220 U.S. Marines and 21 other service personnel.
Fares has denied any Hezbollah connection to that event and calls Hezbollah the "National Resistance Movement" to Israel and "a resistance party fighting the Israeli occupation" of Arab lands.
To be fair, Fares has used his business and "philanthropy" to gain influence on both sides of the aisle, but one gets the impression that he is not about to curry favor with any of the pro-Israel 2016 GOP candidates anytime soon, having been busy donating to the Clinton Foundation.
