It’s frightening because you know they’ll use them:
A veteran Israeli lawmaker and former defense minister says Syria’s chemical weapons are “trickling” to Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group.
Binyamin Ben-Eliezer told Israel Radio on Monday that he is shocked by the “world’s silence” and that the West must intervene to stop the high civilian death toll in Syria.
He says he “has no doubt” Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons and that some of the weapons are “definitely reaching” Israel’s enemy Hezbollah.
It was a mistake for President Obama to go drawing “red lines” he had no intention of enforcing. Besides, we have no interests in Syria. None. But now will he lean on Israel to ignore a new threat from Hezbollah?
