Former Syrian vice president Abdel Halim Hadam revealed on Friday that MK Azmi Bishara served as an emissary of the Ehud Barak government, assisting in the negotiations between Syria and Israel. The Nazareth-based a-Sinara reported Hadam as saying that in one of his visits Bishara brought a sketch of Israel's future borders drawn on a napkin by Barak's advisor MK Danny Yatom. According to Army Radio, Bishara denied the report, saying it was "utter nonsense and the timing, so close to the elections, raises some questions."
