Syrian Threat to Israel?
Will the Al-Qaeda Affiliates Ousting Assad Turn to Israel Next? -Mitch Ginsburg
Last week Islamist fighters in Syria released a video showing masked Jabhat al-Nusra fighters saying: "We will put our hands on" Assad's biological and chemical arsenal. "We will attack and take over those sites and then use them against the Zionists, from Syrian territory, until we reach Jerusalem."
The U.S. State Department called Jabhat al-Nusra an alias for Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and added it to the U.S. list of foreign terror organizations. State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said the organization represents 9% of the rebel forces in Syria.
