Skip to comments.PM Tells MKs: Stop Voicing Concern Over Syria Chemical Weapons
Posted on 04/28/2013 3:23:26 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told members of Knesset on Sunday to refrain from voicing concern over mounting evidence of chemical weapons use in Syria, in an effort to avoid the impression Israel is pushing the international community into armed intervention, Army Radio said.
Netanyahu gave the instructions after Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin suggested the international community might react militarily to "take control of the Syrian chemical weapons arsenal".
The radio station reported Netanyahu sought to avoid the notion that Elkin's words be seen as an Israeli attempt to push the United States into launching a military operation in Syria.
The political commentator on military radio said that, "US hesitancy over the Syrian issue in the last few days, however, is causing a great deal of worry in Israel".
"If (US President) Barack Obama does not respect the red lines that he set out himself and does not intervene when Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons against civilians, it is showing weaknesses that could cost it dearly later in Syria, but also in the Iranian nuclear question," the commentator added.
Britain and France have accused Damascus of using chemical arms, and on Thursday US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said that, "the US intelligence community assesses with some degree of varying confidence.

While we are against the use of chemical weapons, I hope both sides in Syria use them and wipe each other out since wiping Muzzies from the face of the earth will make the world much more civilized and peaceful.
The Syrian “rebels” are Salafist terror groups.
If Assad Pest Control, Inc. sprays those roaches, I couldn’t give a damn.
I hope that both sides continue killing each other for the next, say, hundred years or so.
Any help we offer will be repaid in terrorism.
Some of these Congresscritters seem hell bent on starting wars they have no intention of finishing...
If the Europeans and Israelis think Assad is such a problem, they need to belly up to the bar, take a stiff drink of whoop ass and take care of business.
The USA is not a military welfare program for failed Eurosocialist states.
Let the Russians have a go at them, Putin doesn’t have gay pride marches with his army.
Putting our soldiers into the middle of a terrorist shooting gallery is insane.
You mean like the Euroweenies handled Kosovo? That’ll be the day...
Yes... we go over there to defend the terrorists and make enemies of the Serbs.
Amazing how the Russkies took that airport without even a whimper from NATO, isn’t it?
Yea, well we wouldn’t want to offend anybody now would we.
No need to be so harsh. Send the Islamochicks contraceptives, and they’ll accept them in lieu of weapons. They even said so on a Jihad video. No mess. No fuss. No bother.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Not unreasonable, but too late.
