Peres: Iran in 'open war' with Israel
In an interview with CNN, Israeli President Shimon Peres declared that Iran is engaged in a one-sided "open war" with Israel. Peres says there's evidence to indicated that Iran is responsible for the deadly attack on a tourist bus in Bulgaria carrying Israeli tourists. And that his nation has a responsibility to retaliate. The president also underscored previous comments by Israeli government officials that his nation is weighing options to prevent Syria's stockpile of chemical weapons, which he says are illegal to manufacturer, possess or use, from falling into the hands of Hezbollah.
