Exiled former Syrian Vice President Abdul Halim Khaddam has made more startling revelations. He claims that a Palestinian member of the Israeli Parliament – Azmi Bishara (left) – has spied in Syria for Israel.
The staunch fighter for Palestinian rights recently broke Israeli law by travelling to Damascus for talks. Khaddam says that was to carry messages from the Israeli government. Let’s ignore for a second that the Israeli government recently tried to banish Bishara from Parliament for saying that Palestinians have a right to resist occupation.
But Khaddam went further, saying that Bishara was in Syria to spy for Israel.
Bishara put that to bed: “These are nonsense comments that have no tie to reality. The timing is weird and raises amazement.”
