A State Department's unclassified document links the overthrow of Asad with Israel's security

"UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05794498 Date: 11/30/2015

"The best way to help Israel deal with Iran's growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad." "Iran's nuclear program and Syria's civil war may seem unconnected, but they are." "What Israeli military leaders really worry about -- but cannot talk about -- is losing their nuclear monopoly." "Bringing down Assad would not only be a massive boon to Israel's security, it would also ease Israel's understandable fear of losing its nuclear monopoly.""
