The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is a European-based group that works hand in hand with the United Nations to thwart chemical weapons proliferation around the world. Leaders of the group admit they are having some difficulty meeting UN-imposed deadlines for destroying tons of Syrian chemical weapons agents that are being turned
over to the group by the embattled Syrian Assad regime. Assad is fighting hard to remain in power in the face of stiff Sunni Muslim military resistance. The group has been working overtime to recruit support from various international civilian agencies that it hopes can assume some of the job of destroying over 800 tons of chemicals that were being used by
the Arab regime to produce highly toxic Sarin nerve gas and other deadly agents. By early this month, only the United States had offered to take on a significant portion of the weapon’s destruction task. International media reports say the destruction process is going much more slowly than planned, due partially to heavy fighting still raging in many areas where
the chemical arsenals are stored.

About the Program
In April 1991 the first Friends of Israel radio program, a 15-minute daily broadcast hosted by Elwood McQuaid, aired on just six stations in the Philadelphia area. Today our program is heard on nearly 500 outlets in America and abroad. Our “Eye on the Middle East”, hosted by David Dolan, is a hard-hitting, fast-paced, 2-minute daily program that tells listeners the straight story of what is happening in Israel.
