Embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says that he does not need chemical weapons to “challenge Israel” and “blind [it] in an instant,” according to recent remarks reported in the Arab media.
As Western inspectors prepare to enter Syria next week, Assad renewed his threats on Israel and boasted of weapons that are “more sophisticated than chemical weapons,” according to remarks published by Lebanon’s Al-Akhbar news site and carried throughout the Arab media. […]
The Syrian president went on to claim that he successfully fooled the United States and President Barack Obama.
Removing “the chemical weapons is not the goal of the United States and their allies,” and it never has been, Assad claimed. “They wanted to change the balance of power and to protect Israel.”
“We turned the tables and sent to the ball into their court,” Assad said. “This move embarrassed them in front of the American public, in Europe, and even in front of the U.S. government.”
The Syrian president also celebrated his “unprecedented collaboration with Russia,” which has helped arm Assad and took the lead on forging the deal to remove his chemical weapons.
