Assad Tells London Times ‘Britain Funding Terrorists in Syria’

Syrian President Bashar Assad told the London Sunday Times that Britain is funding terrorists, an accusation he formerly has reserved for Israel and the United States.

Assad’s agreement to be interviewed despite his ban on foreign journalists in the country may show how paranoid he really is.

Described last year by Pulitzer Prize-winner journalist Joel Brinkley last year as “the world’s most dangerous man,” Assad also warned he will retaliate against Israel in a way that “only the Israelis know what we mean.” He added, “Retaliation does not mean missile for missile .”

He accused the British government of being “naive, confused and unrealistic” in its views on Syria.

“To be frank, Britain has played a famously unconstructive role in our region on different issues for decades, some say for centuries … The problem with this government is that their shallow and immature rhetoric only highlights this tradition of bullying and hegemony,” according to Assad.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague responded on the BBC by saying of the interview with the London Times, This will go down as one of the most delusional interviews that any national leader has given in modern times.”
