US Secretary of State John Kerry informed several Arab countries that the US and Russia have reached an understanding that Syrian President Bashar Assad will leave to another country as part of the future peace process aiming to put an end to the bloody civil war, reported the London-based Al-Hayat Thursday.

According to the report, based on a Security Council diplomat, a timetable was not set for Assad’s departure. The understanding between the United States and Russia came about in behind-the-scenes diplomatic channels involving military operations against Islamic State and it includes the departure of Assad to another country at some point. However it was stressed that “the timing of the move and its context in the political process is still not clear to everyone so far.”

    If Assad can establish friendly relations with Israel, he might become a constructive force against Islamism.

    The ideology of Islamism is the enemy. Islamism destabilizes the Mideast – and the world.

    Assad is at least effective against Sunni forms of Islamism, such as Islamic State.

    If Assad can also become effective against Shii forms of Islamism, and stop supporting groups like Hizbullah, he might be better than alternatives.

    In any case, every Islamist leader are part of the problem and can never work as part of the solution – the same ones who hate the Jewish nation state.

    Relatedly, there is no room for an Islamist terrorist state of ‘Palestine’.

    It is necessary to oppose Islamism anywhere. The survival of humanity depends on it.
