Syrian opposition leader, in unprecedented interview with Israel Radio, says Syrians want peace with Israel | The Times of Israel
Am less interested in how the external Syrian opposition normalizes ties with Israel—which we have known for some time now—than in how anti-Assad camp and third way types still cling onto the myth that Assad didn’t “do enough” vis-a-vis Israel:
"The interview comes against a background of decades of overt Syrian hostility to Israel, and shatters a taboo of Syrian representatives in any forum talking openly with Israelis. At international events, Syrian leaders have always sought to ensure that Israeli journalists are kept out of their press conferences, and ignored questions from Israeli reporters on the rare occasions when Israelis did manage to address them directly. Israeli journalists are never granted visas to enter Syria."
