Judy Mozes, wife of Water, Energy, Development of Negev and Galilee and Regional Cooperation Minister Silvan Shalom, tweeted this morning that she should have assassinated Syrian President Bashar al-Assad when she had the chance. Mozes uploaded a picture where she is seen a few feet behind Assad at the Pope’s 2005 funeral in Rome, adding that there was hardly any security there.
