The United States must send a strong and unified message to Syria and other Middle East countries that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated, says Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

"We certainly hope that this can be a unified stance . . . one that sends a clear message to the countries in the region and particularly to Iran and its allies — Hezbollah, Hamas, and others," Hoenlein told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below.



"We hope a military action can be avoided, but we have to show that there's credibility behind our words because the only language that terrorists understand is strength."

Hoenlein said a strong response is necessary with so many countries, including North Korea, stockpiling weapons of mass destruction.

He pointed to Israel's dispatching of Syria's nuclear reactor as a positive example.

"Everybody should be applauding what Israel did taking out Syria's nuclear reactor," he said.

"Everybody can sigh a big sigh of relief because Israel removed what could have been an even more dangerous threat to the current situation."

He also fired a warning shot at Syria's President Bashar Assad, warning him to steer clear of any aggressive action towards Israel.



"Syria knows full well that Assad's last day will be the day he tries to use a chemical weapon or tries to attack Israel.

"Even Iran knows that this will be the trigger that will unleash the response that everybody is hoping and waiting for."

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations is a non-profit group that addresses major issues of concern to the Jewish community
