SYRIAN REBEL Kamal Labwani wants an alliance with Israel.

Once, Israel was blamed for everything. But Israel is not our enemy anymore. We see how Israel opened its doors to our injured. We see how Syrian children are treated in Assad’s prisons and how they are treated in Israeli hospitals. Israel gave food while Assad starved his own people. Syria has only one enemy now: the Assad regime backed by Iran and Hezbollah. I meet with Syrian dissidents and military leaders daily and have seen how, after decades of brainwashing, their mentality has begun to change.

Guys like him rarely acquire hard power in the Middle East, and they certainly stand no chance in Syria now, but his point of view really is beginning to spread. It’s got to be hard to keep up the anti-Zionist hate in the middle of a scorched-earth war between Assad and Al Qaeda.
