An Israel intelligence officer charged that Syrian forces have been employing the nerve gas, Sarin, against rebel forces. General Itai-Brun charges there is “a hugearsenal of chemical weapons in Syria. Our assessment is that the (Assad) regime has used and is using chemical weapons.” As evidence, he noted pictures that showed victims foaming at the mouth. Naturally, President Assad charges that rebel forces are the ones employing chemical weapons. Where or how they obtained these chemicals is still unclear.
The real issue stemming from the war in Syria is the silence of Muslim leaders throughout the world. Where are demonstrations agaisnt Assad? Where are the crowds which surged through the streets denouncing cartoons? The silence of the voices which ordinarily shout loudly when pictures are shown can not be heard when innocent Muslims are being murdered by violent Muslims under leadership of President Assad.
