Syria's delusional, as always. Assad says Israel is the "greatest obstacle" to peace in the Middle East.
In all honesty, it's probable that the outside enemy that Israel provides for the various governments in the region is all that keeps the rival tribes from killing each other. In other words, had Israel not ever been reborn, or if Iran is successful in wiping it off the map, the tribes in the Muslim nations would be busy killing each other.
Seen that way, Israel's existence has preserved the lives of tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of Muslim terrorists.
