Ahmad Massoud, leader of the National Resistance Front in Afghanistan, said that he would be willing to work with Israel, in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Maariv on Tuesday.

“We need help from any party that wants to support us, including Israel,” Massoud said, adding: 

“I think we should all act together for the advancement of humanity in the face of darkness, terrorism, and ignorance.”

 Massoud, the son of the late anti-Soviet leader Ahmad Shah Massoud added that Arab countries have been “disappointing in their policies towards Afghanistan.”
