Iran accuses Syrian opposition of being Zionist

From Syria's SANA:

Iranian Chairman of the Shura Council, Ali Larijani, stressed on Tuesday that Istanbul Conference held recently with the theme of "Friends of Syria" is in fact a conference for those bought by Israel and not for Syria's friends.

Larijani added that the United Kingdom offered 500,000 pounds to fuel unrest in Syria and the US is talking about helping the saboteurs and terrorists inside Syria to undermine the Resistance against the Israeli entity.

Speaking at an open session of the Majlis on Tuesday, Larijani said, “The name of the recent conference in Istanbul, which was called ‘Friends of Syria’, was not ‘Friends of Syria’, but rather its name was ‘bribers of Israel’ (who met) to breathe a new life into it.”

Of course, the Syrian opposition accuses the Assad regime of being Zionist too, so it all evens out.
