STL – They ‘blamed it’ on 4 Lebanese affiliated with Hezbollah
It came sous forme of an RSS feed, the title: “STL Indicts 4 Hezbollah Members, Seeks Arrests“.
…then I whispered to myself: “they better have rock f****ing solid proof to make that claim“, for everybody that follows, knew that they were going to ‘blame it’ on a Lebanese group. Whats worse, that group of Lebanese, all belong to the one and same sect, and yet all those that were assassinated are from everything but from that sect.
Half hour later, calls started pouring in, even for an 8:00 am ET morning, with much doubt, fear, joy, worry and questions from freinds and observers. Some wondered if traveling to Lebanon for the vacations this summer is still viable.
The biggest question that kept rising: “How can the U.N., supposedly a reputable world organization, not notice that the Lebanese population who have become acquainted with Hezbollah, it’s path and resistance it has taken since 1982 against Israel, to go out of their way (which has always been towards Israel) and execute the assignation against the ex-prime minister of Lebanon?”. Many argued Syria or Israel, the U.S. or Iran would have benefitted more.
Sayyed Nasrallah got the point when many foreign medias ‘leaked’ information about the tribunal investigation and publicly blamed Hezbollah during the past two years. Der Spiegel was the first with the most odd reactions, being pulled out of shock. Many suggested they don’t understand Hezbollah, or maybe needed to understand more Arabic in order to listen or read Hezbollah statements, an innocent mistake or misunderstanding.
Don’t expect republishes of such posts. But at the least, I would expect Rock Solid, Unquestionable evidence against these members, an investigation far more deep and inquisitive than the one Sayyed Nasrallah gave in 2010 showing evidence that Israel may have has a hand in the killing of former prime minister Rafiq Hariri.
Today it has become a question of rigorous and inquisitive debate on finding the truth. The Lebanese people have paid up to their teeth in funding the tribunal through our government, and the people request rock solid, unquestionable proof.
