Israeli Ambassador: Syria Transfer of WMD to Militants Would Be "Game Changer"

(Wall Street Journal) Julian E. Barnes - Israel's ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren, appearing on Fox News Sunday, said that if Syria were to transfer chemical weapons to Hizbullah or other militant groups, it would be a "game changer." Armed with chemical weapons, Hizbullah would pose a grave danger to Israel, he said. Oren made clear it won't tolerate Hizbullah obtaining chemical weapons. "We have a clear red line about those weapons passing into the wrong hands," he said. "Can you imagine Hizbullah, with its 70,000 rockets, could get its hands on chemical weapons? That could kill thousands of people."
