Mother of G-d, I cannot believe my eyes. can it really be?The UN uttering a truth? The UN not playing fixer and attempting some twisted moral equivocation. And more shocking p brought to us by the New York Times, no less. I must have woken up in some parallel universe..........the piece by Warren Hoge (brother to James Hoge whom I worked for at the New York Daily News, but to which there is no conflict of interest because he was soooooooo not my rabbi and always made the "safe decisions" - but that story for another day).
Anyway check this out, UN points fingers at Syria for the Lebanese assasination of RafikHariri. Can you believe they are not blaming on the elders of Zion? I know I cant.
UN Cites Syria as Factor in Lebanese Assassination - Warren Hoge
A toughly worded UN report into the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri concluded Thursday that heavy-handed Syrian interference in Lebanese affairs had created the polarizing tensions that led to his death and that a deeply flawed local investigation had obstructed efforts to find his killers. At one point, the report said, Syria's leader personally threatened Hariri. The author, Patrick Fitzgerald, a deputy police commissioner of Ireland, called for an investigation by an independent commission as the only way of uncovering the truth behind Hariri's killing. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan endorsed the call for an international investigation. (New York Times)
Call me crazy but if this is indeed the case and state sponsored assasination of a neighboring countries leader is a DECLARATION OF WAR. This is just as eggregious as Saddam going into Kuwait in '91. To sit idly by while one country murders the leader of another is sooooooooo Neville Chamberlain. Sorry guys but its time to move on Syria.
If you don't know whats been going on in Lebanon, sit down and listen to Brigitte Gabriel's interview (click).
Moreover, Syria's Secret War - Walid Phares
According to sources inside the "Cedar Revolution," the grassroots pro-democratic movement that has sprouted in Lebanon in recent weeks, Syria has no intention of relinquishing power. Working in concert with its counterparts in Iran, Syria has developed a plan that entails deploying terror and intelligence networks inside Lebanon to orchestrate a series of subversive activities to prove that Syria is needed to maintain security. Already in existence is a coordinated network of pro-Syrian groups under the direct command of the Syrian intelligence service in Damascus. This network includes the Syrian Social-Nationalist Party (SSNP), the intelligence services of the Lebanese and Syrian regimes, and the intelligence network of the Republican Guard, headed by Col. Moustafa Hamdane. The writer is a professor of Middle East studies and Senior Fellow with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. (FrontPageMagazine)
