"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Former Jaysh al-Islam spokesman leaves the powerful group- Zaman Al-Wasl

The former spokesman for Jaysh al-Islam on Friday has cut his links with the powerful Islamist group that operates in Eastern Ghouta suburbs after ten months since his resignation as spokesman after a controversial interview with an Israeli think received considerable coverage in pro-regime media.

Islam Allosh, in statement posted online, has also disclosed his real name as Majdi Mustafa Ne’ma after almost six years from using his name de guerre and defending the Islam Army ideology and war machine.
Two arrest warrants issued for the former captain in the regime army, according to the leaked intelligence archive that obtained by Zaman al-Wasl.

In August 2016, ‘’Alloush’’ gave an interview to Elizabeth Tsurkov, a researcher at an Israeli think tank, about the Army of Islam's stance on a peace treaty between Syria and Israel.

 Alloush said, "This topic and others relating to Syria's foreign policy will be decided by institutions of the country that will be established when the revolution is victorious and the Syrian people freely choose their representatives. We will not be the ones to deprive the Syrians of the decision, as the Al-Assad dynasty has done for more than 40 years."

His statement was taken out on context, Alloush said when the pro-regime media outlets surfaced the news, accusing the Islam Army of making concessions to the ‘enemy‘.  

Two days later, the resignation of Alloush was announced abruptly.
