Syria and Palestine

Reader comment on item: Palestine for the Syrians?

Submitted by John (United Kingdom), Apr 13, 2019 at 15:31

Hafiz Asad was an opportunist, he claimed Palestine the southern part of Syria only when it suited his political needs, similar to his Arab nationalism. Unfortunately for Israel, the strength of the idea of a unified Syria comes from below, from the peoples of Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon, not from above. That's why the idea has never died. It is a matter of time before it comes back to the political stage. Zionism has no future in Palestine. Long live Greater Syria!
