Netanyahu: Hizbullah and Iran Behind Bulgaria Bombing

(Fox News) Interview with Chris Wallace - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told "Fox News Sunday" that his "principal concern" in Syria is "what could happen to those stocks of chemical weapons and those deadly rockets and missiles when there is no government." "Can you imagine Hizbullah, the people who are conducting with Iran all these terror attacks around the world - can you imagine that they would have chemical weapons? It's like al-Qaeda having chemical weapons. It's something that is not acceptable to us and not acceptable to the United States and to any peaceable country in the world." Regarding the identity of the bomber in Bulgaria, he said, "We do know that it's Hizbullah....Exactly the same modus operandi...was exposed in Cyprus [last week]. Fortunately, there, the terrorist was caught and he admitted he worked in behalf of Hizbullah, Iran's long terror arm." "Here, I'm not surmising. I am giving you something that I know as the prime minister of Israel, because I know, based on absolutely rock solid intelligence, this is Hizbullah and this is something that Iran knows about very, very well." "It's time for all countries to point the finger at the country behind these attacks and the group that helps them and that's Iran, with Iran's proxy Hizbullah....Terrorism continues as long as terrorism pays. So, you have to make sure terrorism doesn't pay. Exposing it is the first step to make it not pay." "These attacks on a busload of tourists, including a pregnant mother, tells you what kind of people we are dealing with. Now, imagine these people who are capable of doing anything, imagine them possessing nuclear weapons. People who gun down innocent people, who will send suicide bombers, who could block the Straits of Iran, who threaten to annihilate Israel, who murdered diplomats, who have taken over your embassy, you want these people to have atomic bombs?" "I think this is a reminder - this wave of terror attacks - that the world's most dangerous regime must not be allowed to have the world's most dangerous weapons."
