Editorial: Syria Proves Urgency to Stop Iran
AUGUST 28, 2013
As the West, led by the United States, evaluates how to respond to the use of chemical weapons in Syria, the Israeli government is racing to prepare its citizens for the worst. Israel is rapidly working to ensure its civilians have gas masks and are trained on how to use them in the event of a retaliatory attack by Assad, Iran or Hezbollah on Israeli population centers. The Jewish state is our only ally—and the only country in the world—whose citizens are currently being distributed gas masks en masse.
