    Syrian opposition: Israel is Assad's biggest ally - Israel News, Ynetnews

    Leader of the Syrian opposition bloc Burhan Ghalioun said Saturday that the Syrian regime signed an agreement with Israel, which he called "the main enemy of the Syrian revolution."

    In an interview with Saudi newspaper al Youm, Ghalioun negated the possibility of normalizing relations with Israel, if and when President Bashar Assad's regime falls.

    "We are convinced that the Syrian regime's strongest ally is Israel," he told the paper, adding that the international community's lack of action in Syria stems from concerns for the Jewish State's safety.

    Ghalioun reiterated the Syrian opposition's position by which "the continued occupation of the Golan Heights severely undermines Syria's national sovereignty, which it will only regain after the occupied territories are returned."

    Asked about a recent statement made by a member of the opposition, by which Syria will establish relations with Israel after Assad's fall, Ghalioun said: "Who is the fool who said such a thing?"

    As for Iran, Ghalioun stated "it is fighting a real war against the Syrian people.

    "Some Iranian officials made contact with us, but we made it clear to them that if they want to ensure their interests in the future Syria, they must stop supporting the Syrian regime, or at the very least issue a statement saying they are not against recognizing the future of the Syrian people in a democratic state like all other countries."
