While Israel continues to fight against the terror that surrounds it in the Middle East, there are still those who make ridiculous claims that the Jewish state is for terror. Haaretz reports that Syria's dictator is the latest to claim that Israel supports terrorism:

Israel is actively working to "undermine" Syria by supporting "terrorism," Syria's embattled president Bashar Assad said in an interview with Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda on Friday.

"There's no contradiction between Israel and any organization like al-Nusra (recently renamed as Jabhat Fateh al-Sham) or ISIS or any Al-Qaida-linked organization," said Assad...

As Assad put it, Israel has adopted this so-called policy "because Israel is our enemy, because they occupy our lands, and they look at Syria as [an] enemy of course, and for them they think if they undermine the position of Syria and make it weaker as a whole, as [a] society, as [an] army, as [a] state, that will prevent Israel from moving toward the peace, and the price for peace is to give back the Golan Heights to Syria. So, for them, Syria will be busy with another issue now..."
