Israel’s Vice PM: Fall of Assad could weaken Mideast ‘axis of evil’


Israeli Vice Prime Minister and Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said on Sunday that Israel has not been, and will not be interfering in the current Syrian crisis. He furthermore said that he did not expect a Muslim Brotherhood regime to take over in Syria, but that it would rather be a relatively moderate Sunni regime based on an intellectual middle-class. He said that such a regime change would be positive to Israel, because it could weaken the “Tehran-Damascus-Beirut-Hamas axis of evil.”

Ya’alon also referred to the Iranian nuclear facilities, saying that “whatever humans develop, another human can crack”, hereby referring to the possibility of breaking Iran’s nuclear power by means of a military attack.
