Antoine Ghanem victim of an explosion
Antoine Ghanem got back just two days ago from the UAE.
A booby trapped Mercedes was exploded in the Sin el Fil residential area today, seven people dead in total and 20 wounded. Walid Jumblat was the first to say it was Antoine Ghanem that was at the scene (source: Al Jazeera International). The March 14 movement was the first to point the finger at Syria, how cliché this is becoming. I doubt any proofs are liable to make such a claim so early. Not that this blog is stating that this is false, but the March 14 movement has been saying that for too long without any tangible and reasonable proof. Worse of all, never has any of the explosions and assassination in Lebanon since the 1970s has been sentenced!
While most of the assassinations were Christian targeted, once more, this is the case. The patience and virtuous silence by the people has been remarkable, and while provoked into anger, the Lebanese people have been above all these chaos, acted courageously calm and patient.
The Lebanese people are tired, and know very well that too many nations are involved in Lebanon’s internal affairs, from Syria, to Iran, to Saudi Arabia and finally from the United States of America and Israel.
The Inner Circle strongly condemns the killing of Antoine Ghanem.
