Seven devils for every one exorcised
Israel’s Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, has raised the spectre that the tottering Assad regime in Syria might lose control of its extensive stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons to Hezbollah terrorists. The Assad government is believed to have killed at least 3,000 of its own people and tortured and injured tens of thousands more in its desperate attempt to cling to power.
The Syrian stockpiles are missile-ready and Hezbollah already has highly accurate D-class Scud missiles capable of striking at any city in Israel. They would simply need to put the two together (a matter of a couple hours of work) and they could launch an attack using deadly Sarin nerve gas, mustard gas, or one of the other illegal chemical weapons Assad is known to possess. As you read the media reports from the Middle East, bear in mind that as one devil is cast out, seven others more evil than the first will come in to take his place.
We saw it in Iran when the Shah was overthrown and in Iraq with the ousting of Sadam Hussein. We will see the same scenario in Egypt, Libya and Syria.
Yet despite this looming threat to Israel and, after it is too late, to the West, the world is hell bent on dividing Jerusalem and forcing Israel to hand over the Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians.
