Syrian rebels want to ally with Israel

My how the world has changed. Here's a Syrian rebel appealing to ally with Israel.
Once, Israel was blamed for everything. But Israel is not our enemy anymore. We see how Israel opened its doors to our injured. We see how Syrian children are treated in Assad’s prisons and how they are treated in Israeli hospitals. Israel gave food while Assad starved his own people. Syria has only one enemy now: the Assad regime backed by Iran and Hezbollah. I meet with Syrian dissidents and military leaders daily and have seen how, after decades of brainwashing, their mentality has begun to change. 
It is naive to believe that diplomacy can stop a regime that dismembers children in cold blood and uses chemical weapons against innocent civilians. We must first realize that Assad will not leave unless pushed away. Israel, which has felt the brunt of Assad’s recklessness through his support for terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, would be a natural ally. 
I recently proposed a controversial idea: asking Israel to help our opposition get rid of the most brutal dictator alive today. I said that this is our joint challenge and one that is much more important than the Golan Heights. Golan in the future can remain a garden of peace for all. I believe that Israel is able to be a partner, not an enemy. After meeting with dozens of rebels in the majority of Syrian provinces, I believe that many would support such a plan.
As Western powers allow us a process of diplomacy based on international law, radical groups have seized the opportunity to fill the void left by Assad’s brutality and the chaos that has followed. While it is true that proxy powers brought jihadis to fight their proxy wars I can tell you that the moderates who had started the revolution still exist and are still fighting. But they are desperate for support. 
The Syrian people had to rise up because we were left alone: our children killed and wives raped in front of our very eyes. We had no choice but to defend ourselves. Nothing can bring back those gassed to death in Ghota or starved to death in Homs. But for the sake of tomorrow we must break the impasse; it will not be a conference in Geneva with Assad’s regime that does this.
Wow. Apparently not the kind of change Mr. Hussein Obama had in mind.

Read the whole thing.

Isaiah 19:19

19 In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.
כ וְהָיָה לְאוֹת וּלְעֵד לַיהוָה צְבָאוֹת, בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם: כִּי-יִצְעֲקוּ אֶל-יְהוָה מִפְּנֵי לֹחֲצִים, וְיִשְׁלַח לָהֶם מוֹשִׁיעַ וָרָב וְהִצִּילָם. 20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a saviour, and a defender, who will deliver them.
כא וְנוֹדַע יְהוָה לְמִצְרַיִם, וְיָדְעוּ מִצְרַיִם אֶת-יְהוָה בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא; וְעָבְדוּ זֶבַח וּמִנְחָה, וְנָדְרוּ-נֵדֶר לַיהוָה וְשִׁלֵּמוּ. 21 And the LORD shall make Himself known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day; yea, they shall worship with sacrifice and offering, and shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and shall perform it.
כב וְנָגַף יְהוָה אֶת-מִצְרַיִם, נָגֹף וְרָפוֹא; וְשָׁבוּ, עַד-יְהוָה, וְנֶעְתַּר לָהֶם, וּרְפָאָם. {ס} 22 And the LORD will smite Egypt, smiting and healing; and they shall return unto the LORD, and He will be entreated of them, and will heal them. {S}
כג בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, תִּהְיֶה מְסִלָּה מִמִּצְרַיִם אַשּׁוּרָה, וּבָא-אַשּׁוּר בְּמִצְרַיִם, וּמִצְרַיִם בְּאַשּׁוּר; וְעָבְדוּ מִצְרַיִם, אֶת-אַשּׁוּר. {ס} 23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria; and the Egyptians shall worship with the Assyrians. {S}
כד בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, יִהְיֶה יִשְׂרָאֵל שְׁלִישִׁיָּה, לְמִצְרַיִם, וּלְאַשּׁוּר: בְּרָכָה, בְּקֶרֶב הָאָרֶץ. 24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth;
כה אֲשֶׁר בֵּרְכוֹ יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, לֵאמֹר: בָּרוּךְ עַמִּי מִצְרַיִם, וּמַעֲשֵׂה יָדַי אַשּׁוּר, וְנַחֲלָתִי, יִשְׂרָאֵל. {ס} 25 for that the LORD of hosts hath blessed him, saying: 'Blessed be Egypt My people and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel Mine inheritance.' {S}
