Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday condemned the ongoing massacre of Syrian civilians by President Bashar Assad, blaming the violence on the Axis of Evil: Iran, Syria and Hezbollah.

"This axis is rearing its ugly head," Netanyahu told his cabinet, "and the world must understand that this is the region we live in."
