Mehlis Points Finger at 'Pro-Syrian Forces in Lebanon'

"It is an attack on the Lebanese government and the planned international tribunal (to examine Hariri's murder) and it is also an attack on the U.N.," Mehlis told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily newspaper to be published on Thursday."
It is apparent to anyone who is unbiased that all the clues after this attack clearly point to the forces who want to bring down the Lebanese government and get in the way of the tribunal.

  1. Amir Taheri at Gulf News explains from a military point of view why Iran coaxed Syria into assassinating Gamayel or else just ordered their agents or Hezbollah to carry it out. For a short synopsis go to my blog.

  2. Re: Pierre Gemayel. The man was a leader of The Phalange (“Al Kataeb” in Arabic), an overtly Fascist Christian group modeled after Franco’s Hispanic version of the Nazi Party called El Movimiento Falangista: not really the standard textbook definition of a “democrat”… even by the Middle-East’s notoriously low standards!

    Unfortunately, the other members of Lebanon’s corrupt coalition government aren’t much better: apart from the neo-Nazis mentioned earlier, the other pillar of that government is made of a shady group of pro-Saudi Islamist technocrats called The Future Movement- a paradoxical appellation for a party advocating the strict application of laws dating from the 7th century AD...

    Islamic terrorists and Christian neo-Nazis: these are the people Bush and Olmert rely on to advance the cause of freedom in Lebanon.

    Who said the Neocons aren’t always “intellectually honest”?

  3. Dr Victorino de la Vega,

    Could you please provide a source for your statement suggesting that the Future Movement advocate the applications of laws dating from the 7th to the century AD, as i would very much like to take a look at it.

  4. Dr Victorino de la Vega likes to write without any reference or proof! Everyone who knows Harirri that he is not interested in applying laws dating from the 7th century. In contrary, Hiz balah wants to do that. Look at what has been done to areas under their (HA) control vs. cosmopolitan Beirut!

    Yes Yes Victorio de la vega, while the March 8 forces and their allied are saints fighting for justice, morality, human compassion and love. From the looks of it, it seems you're stuck in Latin America's 70's revolutationary mood and suggest you stick to it and spread your nonsense elsewhere....

  6. Going back to the topic at hand...

    ...I think Mehlis was somewhat out of line in that he commented on an investigation which he headed and which is still ongoing.

    If anything, he has done his cause harm as now it is possible to argue that he was biased in his investigation.

    Of course one could also argue that he has uncovered some grand schemes which will be revealed when the results of the investigation are complete...

    ...but for now, its all just speculation.

    Either way, when this man speaks about assassinations in Lebanon, one would do best to listen.

    Excellent picture...

    ...striking yet sad.

  8. “Could you please provide a source for your statement suggesting that the Future Movement advocate the applications of laws dating from the 7th to the century AD, as i would very much like to take a look at it.”

    Well, my dear Nassim, for a start why don’t you listen to 93.9 FM radio in Beirut?

    The Future Movement is led by pro-Saudi MP Saad Al Hariri, a self-declared friend of Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, the chief architects of the invasion of Iraq... And the spiritual leader of the party is the Grand Mufti of Lebanon, Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, an Islamic fundamentalist bigot, who regularly hosts shows on Dar-al-Fatwah Radio (93.9 FM in Beirut) where Koranic “legal experts” often call for the elimination of “Christian pigs”, “Shiite dogs” and even “secular, deviant Sunnis”...all that while their fellow Sunni “brothers” are massacred on a daily basis in Baghdad and Gaza- but that doesn’t seem remarkable enough to attract their pious attention.

    Debbie Livni, Israel’s flamboyant foreign minister, just gave an interview to reporters in Jerusalem: interestingly, she said Israel supports the “moderate” coalition government of Lebanon led by Prime Minister Fuad Saniura.
    This is what she had to say:
    "The news from Lebanon is another example of the kind of region, the kind of
    neighborhood we are living in," Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said. "This
    is between moderates and extremists."

    Interestingly, Debbie Livni happens to be the daughter of Eitan Livni, a Polish-born member of the Irgun group, and one of the cofounders of the rightwing Likud party.

    You may recall that Irgun was an openly Fascist Jewish organization, armed and funded by the Duce Benito Mussolini during World War II...just like Lebanon’s Kataeb!

    2nd Generation Fascists of the world unite!
