Israel’s attack on the Gaza aid ship has increased the chances of war in the Middle East, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has told the BBC.
He said Syria was working to prevent a regional war, but there was no chance of a peace deal with the current Israeli administration, which he called a “pyromaniac government”.
Mr Assad also rejected claims he was arming Hezbollah in Lebanon.
He said that Middle East was going through a period of momentous change. He has the air of a man who thinks matters are going his way, even though he shares the common Middle Eastern view that the region is getting more dangerous.
Mr Assad said the Israeli attack on the Free Gaza flotilla that killed nine Turkish activists was having serious consequences.
“[It has] destroyed any chance for peace in the near future,” he said. “Mainly because it proved that this government is another pyromaniac government, and you cannot achieve peace with such a government.”
Mr Assad denied that he was sending weapons to the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon.
Israel, the US and Britain are convinced not only that he is, but they say he is also sending bigger, better and more accurate ones than before.He seems in no mood to respond to American attempts to woo him away from Syria’s long term strategic alliance with Iran.
He said he is happy to do business with the United States. But Iran would stay an ally.

Syria was been at war with Israel since 1967. The Turkish assault on the Israeli naval control of the sea water off Israel and Gaza, makes no difference.
Syria and Lebanon are planning new attacks on Israel, With rockets from Hizb”Allah from land, and new ” charity convoy”s” from the sea. There is not going to “be” a regional war on Israel soon. The war on Israel is already on.
The Arab League is fooling the West, to believe that the Arabs wants peace with Israel. The truth is that the Islamic nations in the Middle East wants to see the “pyromaniac Jewish state” go up in flames. They lost the wars in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973, and have never recognized the state of Israel.
Where Nazi-Germany failed, Syrian President Bashar al-Aassad and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are doing their best to succeed.
Behold, God of Israel is watching. Father, Son and Spirit has the following message to the Syrian President, and all he is about to lead off the cliff. This is what the Bible says will be their punishment when The Messiah is taking them down the valley of judgment:
This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.
