Murder has been around longer than the ballot and is often more influential...

Murder has been around longer than the ballot and is often more influential...

Benazir Bhutto's father was prime minister of Pakistan in the 1970s and, before he was hanged, he would tell her to study the lives of great women as inspiration. She sometimes told reporters that story, including the names of Joan of Arc and Indira Gandhi as study subjects suggested by her dad. The French revolutionary was burned at the stake; the Indian prime minister was assassinated by her bodyguards.
Their violent ends did not deter Bhutto, nor did the murders of her father and brother. A Harvard graduate with a sharp knowledge of history, she would have known that The Assassination has been around a lot longer than the ballot and is often more influential.

The Assassination is almost universally denigrated as a "cowardly act" (as President Bush described Bhutto's killing yesterday). But the historical record shows it to be a dramatic, low-cost, highly symbolic means of communication -- and murder -- that disaffected people use to try to dramatically sway national or even international affairs.

It can work or backfire or just disappear, like a bloody drop in a bucket. Pakistan will be unstable in the coming days, as it has been in the past and will be again. Who can say if Bhutto's slaying is the pinball that leads to destruction, the painful agent of positive change, or just a killing, like most, full of sound and fury and signifying nothing more than murderous nihilism?

The descent into regional conflagration could have been triggered "by 'shock and awe' in Iraq, or the assassination of [Mr. Elie Hobeika] in Lebanon in 24/01/2002, or what ensued with the planned chaos in Lebanon, by the US and Israeli Neocons, Israel's battles with Hezbollah," says Mustafa Aksakal, assistant professor of history at American University, who is writing a book about the Ottoman Empire's descent into World War I. "But the region has so far been able to absorb these shocks. It's just impossible to say what will be the straw that breaks the camel's back."

"Anyone who thinks they can predict the consequences of a political assassination is a damn fool," says Eric Rauchway, author of "Murdering McKinley: The Making of Teddy Roosevelt's America" and a history professor at the University of California, Davis. "All it provides is an opportunity. However, the opportunity it provides is often not one the assassin intended."

This has been true from the Ides of March forward.... and the 14 Hmars.... Long list of assassinated leaders .... since 2000 and the visit of Patriarch Sfeir to the SHOUF... instigated by CIA and DGSE, and association with Locals....

Murderously effective figures.

Did Marcus Junius Brutus, when he pulled out his blade to join in the murder of his one-time friend Julius Caesar, understand that his actions would produce (a) perhaps the most famous and influential political assassinations in western history; (b) one of the immortal lines of betrayal -- "Et tu, Brute?" -- that echoes in the cultural id more than 2,000 years later; (c) his own ignominy and suicide?

On the evening of Jan. 30, 1948, a radical Hindu newspaper editor named Nathuram Godse pulled out a pistol and approached a little old man on his way to prayer service. In the instant before he pulled the trigger, he certainly intended to kill Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, at whom he was enraged for his role in the partition of India and Pakistan. But did he know that by so doing he would turn the diminutive weaver of cotton into the "Father of India" and a global icon of nonviolent resistance?

But these killings were nothing close to the most murderously effective. The dubious title goes to Gavrilo Princip, the Serbian nationalist.

Standing at a stone bridge in Sarajevo in late June 1914, Princip shot Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand (and his wife) to demonstrate that he and his compatriots wanted to be freed of the constraints of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and to join neighboring Serbia. What did he know? He was scarcely 20 years old.

But his act of assassination worked; it led to Austria pulling out of Bosnia. The collateral damage was that it ignited World War I.

In the next four years, some 16 nations lost more than 10 million lives, twice that many were wounded, the entire Austro-Hungarian Empire collapsed, Germany was humiliated in defeat (laying the groundwork for the rise of Hitler, World War II and the Holocaust) and America was launched into world prominence.

Princip's pistol also led to the creation of Yugoslavia, which led to the destruction of Yugoslavia, which led to another war involving ethnic Serbs in Bosnia, which led to mass murder of Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, which led to U.S. troops landing in a place called Tuzla, which led to war crimes tribunals and the imprisonment and subsequent death of the Serbian president who had started the war on ethnic nationalism.

From 'Peace Prize' to burial
Moving south, if one wants the short course on why peace in the Middle East is so elusive, just look up "Nobel Peace Prize," followed by "assassination."

Egyptian President Anwar Sadat won that award in 1978, along with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, for their peace agreement, the Camp David Accords. That lasted for three years, until Muslim fundamentalists stormed a parade route and shot Sadat to death.

Thirteen years later, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (and colleague Shimon Peres) shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Rabin's mortal enemy, Palestinian Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat. The two men had, mostly in secret, brokered a peace agreement (the Oslo Accords) that promised to have a transformative effect on the Middle East. But it was largely an agreement between two men, not two nations. One Israeli law student thought that Rabin, a soldier who had defended Israel almost his entire adult life, was "giving our country to the Arabs." He took it upon himself to shoot and kill Rabin.

The Oslo Accords withered and died.

And, of course, there is the United States, where roughly one out of every 11 presidents have been assassinated, where Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Martin Luther King followed the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and was, of course, shot in the head at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis.

American assassination has been of titanic import. Lincoln's changed the course of the country. His assassination spot at Ford's Theater is a national landmark, and there is the Lincoln Monument on the Mall, not to mention his likeness on the penny and the $5 bill. John F. Kennedy's assassination . . . oh. You've heard.

It's also been almost inconsequential. Just 16 years after Lincoln was killed, James Garfield was assassinated at a train station a few hundred yards from Ford's Theatre. That building, never designated anything, was torn down 99 years ago. The site eventually became the National Gallery of Art and today, not even a plaque marks the spot. The sole reminder of the event is Garfield's unobtrusive statue at the base of Capitol Hill.

In 1998, the U.S. Justice Department published something called the "Exceptional Case Study Project," as part of a threat assessment guide for law enforcement officials. The study reviewed the historical record back to 1835 and surveyed "the thinking and behavior of all 83 persons known to have attacked or approached to attack a prominent public official or figure in the United States from 1949 to 1996."

They fit no one profile, authors Robert A. Fein and Bryan Vossekuil found. Some had political beliefs, some were just nuts. The serious ones kept their mouths shut: "None of the 43 assassins and attackers communicated a direct threat to the target before their attack."

And some, perhaps like the person or people who killed Bhutto yesterday, wanted to "save the country or the world; to fix a world problem."

How seldom it works out that way.?

CIA trained foreign police/Armies/Agents to set off terrorist bombs.

President George W. Bush yesterday lambasted Syria's President Bashar Assad, saying his "patience ran out with [Assad] a long time ago." However, Assad can point to the December 12, 2007, car bombing assassination of Lebanese Army operations chief General Francois al-Hajj as proof that it has not been Syria that has been behind the spate of car bombings in Lebanon that not only aim to destabilize Lebanon but are designed to provide a pretext for a military attack by the United States or Israel or both on Syria.

Al-Hajj was tapped to become the Lebanese Army chief after its current chief, Michael Suleiman, was elected President. However, that move was not popular in Jerusalem or Washington. Al-Hajj was not only friendly to the Syrians but an ally of retired General Michel Aoun, who has struck an alliance with Lebanese Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. At first, the neocon cabal attempted to pin the al-Hajj car bombing on Syria and its allies in Lebanon.

However, the assassination of al-Hajj has all the markings of past Israeli car bombings in Lebanon that have killed scores of Lebanese politicians and journalists. The hit on al-Hajj was practically a carbon copy of the 2002 car bombing assassination of Lebanese political leader Elie Hobeika, who was prepared to testify against Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon for his past war crimes in Lebanon.

The car bombing hits on Hobeika and al-Hajj were a few miles apart in the supposedly secure executive area of Baadba/Hazmieh in Beirut. In both bombings, the same type of shaped charge was used. However, in al-Hajj's case, the bomb used was twice the explosive charge used in Hobeika's assassination. That is because al-Hajj was targeted in a more open area with less adjacent buildings, making it necessary to use a charge of almost 40 kilograms, while Hobeika was car bombed in an area with a number of closely-packed buildings, requiring a charge of merely 20 kilograms.

Al-Hajj, a Maronite Christian hailing from south Lebanon who transcended the religious and political divide, was considered a potential president of Lebanon. And because al-Hajj was friendly to Aoun, and, by default Nasrallah, as well as Syria, he had to be disposed of by the neocon cabals in Jerusalem and Washington. WMR has learned of Israeli and American involvement in repeated car bombing assassinations and attempted assassinations by a number of sources in Lebanon, including Christian and Muslim officials in the media and Lebanese intelligence and security services, as well as US intelligence sources in Washington.

In 2005, Lebanon's pro-Syrian Defense Minister Elias Murr, narrowly escaped assassination in a car bombing. Former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and Lebanese Communist Party leader George Hawi were not so fortunate. Both were assassinated in the Israeli-trademark car bombings.

Declassified CIA files contain an obscure article from the December 12, 1973 issue of the National Guardian. The article describes the CIA's "bomb school" operated by the US Agency for International Development's (USAID) Office of Public Safety at the US Border Patrol Academy in Los Fresnos, Texas.

The program was actually a CIA front for training foreign police officers in the art of setting off bombs in terrorist attacks. As of the date of the article, 165 policemen from several Third World nations had been trained since 1969 in the design, manufacture, and uses of powerful homemade bombs and incendiary devices by CIA instructors operating through the auspices of CIA front organizations, including the International Police Academy (IPA) in Washington, DC, as well as the USAID cut-out.

Dubbed a "technical investigations course," the four-week CIA training through the IPA in Washington included such modules as electricity as applied to explosives, basic bombs and explosives, incendiaries, and assassination weapons.

After classroom training, the students were sent to Los Fresnos for field sessions taught by CIA instructors. Subjects taught included explosives characteristics, electric priming, electric firing devices, explosive charges, homemade weapons, fabrication of devices, functioning of devices, incendiaries, and the placing of bombs in cars, buildings, and public plazas.

The Department of Defense found the instruction so disturbing and out-of-bounds, it refused to provide instructors for the course. South Dakota Democratic Senator James Abourezk launched an investigation of the school.

Many of the trainees came from Uruguay where some of the policemen were working as terrorists for the death squads. Similarly, graduates of the bomb school went on to work for death squads in Brazil, Dominican Republic (La Banda), and Guatemala (La Mano Blanca and Ojo por Ojo).

Uruguay and Argentina are currently investigating Henry Kissinger's role in an alliance of Latin American death squads code-named "Operation Condor." Policemen from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Chile, Brazil, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Thailand, the Philippines, Iran, South Korea, Colombia, Indonesia, Peru, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Venezuela, Paraguay, Argentina, Costa Rica, Burma, Cambodia, South Vietnam, Guam, Cambodia, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Upper Volta, Chad, Dahomey, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, Libya, Malagasy Republic, Kenya, and Zaire received bomb making and use training.

Although the CIA Bomb School at Los Fresnos was closed in 1974, there is a belief it moved to the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia. There is also a distinct possibility that some of the bomb training has been outsourced to private military contractors, such as Blackwater, or its many "local" equivalents in Lebanon... today, trained in IRAQ, or yesterday in Israel or USA....


Israel/MOSSAD/CIA/NI, In Charge Of The US Military Dictatorship.

If "Terror" attacks were to stop, then Israel would lack any viable
excuse to continue killing Arabs. The bulldozers would fall silent.
For Israel, that would be the worst thing that could happen. Even
worse than the so-called "Road Map." In America, the Religious Right
mandates Bush that the "Holy Land" must be purged of all Muslim Arabs.
They cite that act as a Christian Religious Edict, supported by their
interpretation of Biblical Scripture. Bush cannot be reelected without
their support, nor can he be reelected without Jewish support.

Ariel Sharon is not a Religious man, he is a violent psychopath, a butcher,
murderer and serial Killer from his teens, and he has stated that he would
not form a Government if he had to form a coalition with Orthodox
Religious Jews, or any other Jewish Religious groups. Obviously,
Sharon is ruthless, controls Israeli Intelligence, and that Service
readily admits it has "operatives" inside all Arab Organizations.
Israeli Intelligence is rated the best in the world, with complete!
access to American Intelligence, and they are not shackled by any sort
of morality.

The time has come to put 2+2 together and understand where "World
Terrorism" is originating or being exploited, and the purpose it
serves. Bin Laden may have started this process, but Israelis
understand how to use it to further their ambitions. Suicide bombers
can be either manipulated, or used as "scapegoats" for any explosion.
( Israelis claimed the last Bus bombing was caused by a bomber
entering the front of the Bus, yet the photographs show the roof of
the Bus pealed back from the rear, where the charge was set) Their
first step was to equate Palestinian resistance, doubted "Terrorism"
to 9-11 as being a "Terrorist" act, rather than its actual purpose of
being an act of retaliation for America's support of years of Israeli

Bin Laden gave the Israelis, unwittingly, exactly what they needed, to
expand their naming of "Terrorism" to include 9-11, as well as
Palestinian resistance. With most Americans unaware of Israeli
atrocities against Palestinians, Israeli theft of Palestinian homes
and farms and only understanding Palestinians only as "Terrorists,"
rather than in a Resistance Movement. The stage was set.

The War against "World Terrorism," as it is now called, had the flags
flying, and the full support of the American People. For Americans,
Pearl Harbor was back. Not many Flags for Iraq, are people catching

Sharon was left with the simple task of mobilizing a simpler-minded
Bush into an all-out Christian Crusade: First Afghanistan, then Iraq,
Lebanon,Syria, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and finally Iran. "Terrorism"
could have been stopped in its tracks by reining in Israel, and
although Bush did try, Sharon is far too clever and powerful vis-a-vis
Bush Jr. Just to teach Bush a lesson, Sharon made him cough-up 10
billion, a 400% increase in US aid to Israel.

Israel's stock-pile of Nuclear Weapons may not be needed after all.
"World Terrorism" has caused the United States to form the Office of
"Homeland Security" which allows the US Government to suspend all
civil rights and Constitutional Protections of American Citizens. At
that point, the United States has become a Military Dictatorship, and
with the Zionists in control of American Politics, Israel becomes, de
facto, the World's only Superpower. The worst thing, that could
happen, is happening.
Remember that a dictatorship starts with the phrase "the powerful
eventually enslave themselves.." from a Dr. Who episode of Warrior's
gate. If we really want the United States to keep a constitutional
country of law, then we need to drop the religious discussion. In the
constitution, it is stated that Church and State are to remain
separate. From my reading, it also means that church and state are to
stay at arm's length. So, the first we need to do is speak
specifically on what legal issues of the constitution are being abated
or diminished and how to restore them. In Freedom, the constitution
come first not the Bible as the law of the land. I will gladly defend
Lebanon and the New Civil Constitution, but I will not defend a
theocratic or religious, sectarian state....

American Military Versus Israel Firsters
As the White House and Congress escalate their economic sanctions
and military threats against Iran, top military commanders and
Pentagon officials have launched a counter-offensive, concocting a new
Middle East War.... with FDDC.

While some commentators and journalists, like Chris Hedges (Truthdig,
November 13, 2007), privy to this high stakes inter-elite conflict,
attribute this to a White House cabal led by Vice President Cheney, a
more stringent and accurate assessment pits the Zionist Power
Configuration (ZPC) in the center of the Iran war debate. There is a
great deal riding in this conflict – the future of the American empire
as well as the balance of power in the Middle East. Equally important
is the future of the US military and our already heavily constrained
democratic freedoms. The outcome of the continuous and deepening
confrontation between top US military officials and the Israel
Firsters over US foreign policy in the Middle East has raised
fundamental questions over self-determination, colonization, civilian
primacy and military political intervention, empire or republic. These
and related issues are far from being of academic interest only; they
concern the future of America.

Discover the lies in Truths ?

Politics, is mostly about the polarization of The Truth, into truths
that lie....using an Intelligence technique known as “stovepiping,”

This is a flaw in human philosophy, that has been hidden from most of
us. Truth, that is truths can lie.

How...well when a truth is not the whole truth, it is still true, but
it is not the whole truth; the devil lies in the missing details.

This 'negative' side to truth is being used by anti-peace or anti-
family factions to create chaos in our society...pitting one side
against another...

The Tripartite Agreement - 1985 - Lebanon

قدر العظماء أن يمضوا شهداء

‏«الطائف» و«الاتفاق الثلاثي»‏

لا يمكن الحديث عن تهميش الدور المسيحي في لبنان دون ذكر اتفاق الطائف الذي شلح المسيحيين ‏الدور والموقع والصلاحيات الى دون مستوى الشراكة الحقيقية.‏ وبعد أكثر من سنة ونصف على قيام حكومة السنيورة تتصاعد الشكوى من استمرار التهميش ‏الذي أكدت عليه خطب البطريرك والذي قبل به جعجع منذ اليوم الأول حجماً تمثيلياً هو 24/1 ‏وبحقيبة هامشية كوزارة السياحةويستذكر قادة مسيحيون أن مضمون الشراكة المسيحية في النظام الطائفي رسمته معادلات ‏الاتفاق الثلاثي مقارنة بواقع الطائف، والذي في كل الاحوال حتى ولو احسن تطبيقه حرفياً لا ‏يعطي التمثيل المسيحي في السلطة حجماً حقيقياً وموقعاً في الحياة الداخلية وصلاحيات دستورية ‏في عمل النظام بمقدار ما كان سيؤمنه الاتفاق الثلاثي الذي كرس بالتفصيل صيغة «المثالثة» ‏في المواقع وفي الشراكة، وتعامل مع المواقع المسيحية في السلطة على قدم المساواة في الاحجام ‏والصلاحيات مع المواقع السنية والشيعية، وكان ذلك نتيجة مفاوضات صعبة وشاقة قادها ‏ايلي حبيقة بحرص شديد رافضاً أي تصرف «الحاقي» في اي مواقع طائفية اخرى تمثل المسيحيين وأي ‏تغاضى في حجم العلاقات والدور في تركيبة السلطة التي أقرها الاتفاق الثلاثي. كما يقول أحد ‏المسيحيين الحقوقيين المهتمين في اجراء مقارنات في الصلاحية بين ما تبقى لرئاسة الجمهورية في ‏نصوص الطائف او بين الموقع الرئيسي المتساوي مع الموقعين الشيعي والسني في الصيغة التي توصل ‏لها الاتفاق الثلاثي والتي وضعت في هيئة مجلس رئاسي، وبالتالي فان انقلاب جعجع على الاتفاق ‏الثلاثي ادخل المسيحيين في حالة من الاستنزاف عبرت عنها الحرب التي شنت ضد العماد عون ‏واضطرته الى مغادرة البلاد. وكانت الثمرة اتفاق الطائف، ولو جاز للمسيحيين ان يعينوا ‏المسؤول عن خفض سقف الدور المسيحي في النظام اللبناني الى ما دون التسوية التي ابرمها ‏حبيقة في الاتفاق الثلاثي، فان جعجع بنظرهم هو المسؤول مرتين، المرة الأولى عندما انقلب على ‏الاتفاق الثلاثي والمرة الثانية لانه أعطى الفرصة لحرب داخل المناطق المسيحية ووافق على ‏السقف الادنى الذي قلص صلاحيات رئيس الجمهورية لصالح حلفائه في الطائفة السنية، بينما بقي ‏حبيقة على قناعاته وثوابته واسس حزب «الوعد» رافضاً مصادرة اسم القوات اللبنانية ‏احتراماً ووفاء لدور بشير الجميل مؤسس القوات اللبنانية معتبراً أن عائلة بشير وابنه هما ‏الاحق بالتسمية، كما رفض مصادرة اسم حزب الكتائب احتراماً ووفاء لدور بيار الجميل ونجله ‏امين وعندما حاول كشف خيوط مجزرة صبرا وشاتيلا التي لاحقته «كالظل» سقط شهيداً «مظلوماً».‏والآن في ظل ما تشهده البلاد يحاول المسيحيون ان يتذكروا تلك الحقبة والمرحلة التي ظلمها ‏البعض في حينه، وجاءت النتائج والانجازات بعد 23 سنة دون المستوى بكثير.. فهل يتعظ ‏البعض.


The International Criminal Court's Obligations Today.

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.


1) United States must negotiate peace with the countries in the Middle East, especially Iran and Syria. Not only would this give the United States leverage to convince these groups to put a halt to covert funding of groups behind suicide bombings. But it sometimes seems as if these groups are funded solely because they attack Israel, ally of the United States. Regarding many of the groups behind the suicide bombings, Arafat really has little or no control over those organizations, and yet the suicide bombings must stop if peace is to be achieved. What follows is a brief overview of the main groups :

a. Hamas or Islamic Resistance Movement (Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyya), a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood (an Islamist group founded in Egypt as a response to Nasser's secular pan-Arabism), has the stated goal of the destruction of Israel and the creation of an Islamic state. Hamas does not accept Arafat's leadership, in part because he is a secular leader, and in part due to a schism relating to the peace process. Hamas is the second most powerful Palestinian group, after Arafat's Fatah party, and it is possible that the leadership of Palestine could fall to a member of this group if a chain of succession is not set up within Fatah.
b. Hizbollah (Party of God), this shi'ite Resistance group operating from Lebanon, was originally funded by Iran, with logistical help from Syria. Hizbollah was originally created in response to the Lebanese civil war, and still received a great deal of funding and leadership from Iran. They also desire a change from feudal sectarian system, to a stable Republic .
c. Islamic Jihad (al-Jihad) has the stated goal of the overthrow Israel as well as secular Arab governments. Islamic Jihad receives support and support from Iran as well as other Arab countries.
d. Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade is an unofficial wing of Arafat's Fatah group, and was created after the last Intifada in response to the success of Hamas and Hezbollah. What is so unusual about this group is that they are secular when compared to the other groups, with their goal being a Palestinian, but not an Islamic, state. The secularism of this group, as well as they fact that they are the only group with female bombers, brings a new dimension to the suicide bombings, and says something about the situation; the movement is not only religious but is in some quarters wholly political.
Yasser Arafat has little or no control of the majority of these groups, and so Sharon's constant demands that Arafat to put a halt to the bombings will accomplish nothing, because Arafat does not, and can not control most of these groups, and in most cases the peace agenda is contradictory to the goals of the military wings of these groups. The only way to put a halt to these radical groups is to cut off their international funding and support, and the only way to accomplish that is to make peace with the countries that sponsor those groups. (This is all in addition to the fact that the United States needs to pull its head out of the international political sand and realize that we cannot have things our way, with brutal murders and assassinations of everyone who does not accept our Dictates all the time. We are a super power not a recalcitrant two year old.)

2) Jerusalem should be under the control of the United Nations, for several years until it is able to take control, as an independent city, somewhat akin to Vatican City. There will never be peace in the Middle East until the issue of Jerusalem is resolved. United Nations control of an independent Jerusalem would be required for several years to keep the peace. During this time, illegal Jewish building projects in Arab areas must be halted, and control given back to Palestinians in the Arab portions of the city. After such a time as it would take for tempers to cool and saner heads prevail, a council, similar to what has been used before, would rule the city, populated by members of all three faiths, perhaps 40% Muslim, 40% Jewish and 10% Christian. Although it would be more democratic to the set the control along population percentages, such a solution that might allow either the Jews or the Muslims control would simply not work, at least until relations have dramatically improved between those groups, because much like the situation regarding the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the various Christian sects, one group can not be trusted to treat the others fairly.

3) Israeli withdrawal to United Nations sanctioned borders. The United Nations Security Council Resolution 242:

Affirms that the fulfillment of Charter principles requires the establishment of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East which should include the application of both the following principles:

Withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict;

Termination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgment of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force;
This would require a withdrawal from the West Bank, Golan Heights and Gaza. Jerusalem, as previous mentioned, would be under international control. There is also a probable need for international troops to remain along these borders until tensions have cooled to a significant degree.

4) Major modification of the Right of Return versus the Law of Return. The Law of Return grants every Jew the right to go to Israel as an oleh (Jewish immigrant), and the Israel Nationality Law automatically confers Israeli nationality on every oleh upon entering the country unless he specifies otherwise. The law even provides that a Jew who expresses his desire to settle in Israel may be granted nationality by virtue of the Law of Return even before he physically immigrates. From the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs website: ( Contrasted with this, Palestinians who fled areas of fighting, or had the lands taken by force by the Israeli government, are forbidden to return to their lands and have yet to receive compensation for the loss of their lands. In addition, many Arabs who remain in Israel fear that if they leave they will also be unable to return, and may also suffer the loss of their homes and lands. The Right of Return, or at the very least compensation, must be given those Palestinians who fled or were forced from their homes.

5) Major modification of water rights. One Israeli kibbutz uses as much water as forty average sized Palestinian villages. Palestinians collect rain for their drinking water, while Israelis have swimming pools and green lawns. ( Such an unequal allocation of water resources is untenable. No country can grow without fresh water resources, and access to clean water is a basic human requirement. It is impossible to achieve a modern state without education, it is impossible to achieve education without health, and it is impossible to achieve health without clean drinking water. This basic right, to clean water, stands in the way of peace and prosperity in the Middle East. I believe that the Palestinian population will remain in poverty, ill health, and susceptible to the messages of radical groups until the issue of water rights and access is resolved.

6) Arafat and Sharon should both be brought before a war crimes tribunal for their actions starting with Lebanon and moving forward to the current Intifada. Allowing these two to escape retribution only furthers hostility, and sends a message to the international community that the ends do justify the means.

"We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love on another."

--Jonathan Swift
To be honest, I am not sure that even those drastic measures would work, and I am pretty sure that the United States has little interest in either making peace with any members of the “Axis of Evil” or in partaking in an international presence along an Israeli-Palestinian border, and I fear that without United States and international involvement and intervention, any peace process will be doomed to failure from the start.

I was listening to the news over the weekend, and they were interviewing some of the business owners in Ramallah who are finally able to return to their stores after the curfew and siege were lifted, only to discover that everything was looted or destroyed, ostensibly by the Israeli soldiers. One gentleman, the owner of a cyber café and computer store, said that there was not a single piece of equipment left whole, that everything he owned had been destroyed, and he was now completely bankrupt. What I found most disturbing about the interview was that the gentleman, quite obviously educated and savvy, said that he now clearly understood what motivated the suicide bombers.

Looking at Ramallah and Jaffa and other such areas of contention, it is clear that Israel, instead of solving problems, is only creating more hatred and fueling the radicals, a situation that is counter to every peace goal they claim they are attempting to make. Changes must be made, both by the Israel and Palestinian governments and in the attitudes of the Israeli and Palestinian people is the situation is to be resolved.

"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

--George Santayana

History Will Teach Us Nothing


I think that what disturbs me most about the constant warfare and violence, is that not only are two groups that coexisted peacefully for centuries now bitter enemies, but that it seems that the Israelis, the very people who had struggled for so many years to overcome racism and hatred and segregation, are now using these tools of hatred to subjugate another population, just as they were subjugated throughout Europe and much of the world.

And now, for something completely different….

Regarding the angel guarding the Garden of Eden:

"And the Lord said unto the angel, 'Where is the flaming sword that I gave unto thee?' And the angel answered, saying, 'I had it here a minute ago, can't think what's become of it, be forgetting my own head next'. And the Lord did not ask him again."

Washington's & Israel's fingerprints, are all over Dick Cheney's White House " Murder Inc."

From a Friend :
About car bombs, it is said , you walk the streets and it is almost like a
Russian Roulette, but he goes, it is more like when you pick the petals off a
flower, love me, love me not, you pass cars going, it is gonna blow, not
gonna blow.?

Those car bombs have no target but to terrorize the population, very similar
to the car bombs that will appear in Iraq as soon as the Pentagon attacks Iraq.

While targeted car bombs have different signatures...

One thing that is common to all car bombs is the fact that you cannot tell
who is behind them. Detonators of various sources could be used, wires from
various manufactures could be used, explosives from various sources and
various signatures could be used. Any forensic analysis of an explosion site
is corrupt, since one party can use products that point to the other...

Statistics alone, and there have been plenty of car bombings in the ME, is
not strong enough and acceptable.
What is left is human intelligence...


These Facts are "fed" through a network... by the traditionally close relationship between the Syrian and Lebanese militaries and the Certain,Confirmed, and PROVEN involvement of high-ranking officers in the murders of MP and Minister Mr. Elie Hobeika, January 24th 2002, at 9:20 AM in Hazmieh, and of former premier Rafik al-Hariri in February 14th 2005. This is an absolute certainty, despite the final and last minute involvement of highly trained MOSSAD units, comprised of DRUZE exclusively, in the end-user execution of the "pre-prepared" IED by "unknown" cells to the end-users... Hence, Military Intelligence in all four countries were playing a Murderous chess game with deadly precision...known as “stovepiping,”. In Israel, Syria, Lebanon and USA's OSP, they still do today....

The responsibility of blowing up the marines rests squarely on Reagan.
When the Marines first went in, their approach to all clans was neutral, and
stood up to the Israelis on many occasions. If Reagan had not listened to
Sharon and Company and the pro-Israeli currents in the U.S.; and forced that
crappy one-sided peace treaty on Lebanon; the marines would have been fine.
It is more likely that the Syrians were behind that bomb than anyone else;
the Syrian attitude was then and remains that no peace in Lebanon without
peace in Syria.

William J. Luti, the controversial deputy undersecretary of defense and die-hard supporter of the war in Iraq, became a nationally known figure in early 2003 after the New Yorker's Seymour Hersh published a story about Luti's intelligence work in the Office of Special Plans (OSP), a secretive Pentagon outfit whose players included Douglas Feith and Abram Shulsky. According to Hersh's expose, Luti and his OSP cohorts were charged with digging up intelligence on Iraq that would support the administration's arguments for going to war, and orchestrating MURDERS Worldwide, starting with Mr. Elie Hobeika, January 24th 2002, in order to serve the CABAL of the PNAC.

Washington's & Israel's fingerprints, are all over Dick Cheney's White House " Murder Inc."

Those visiting this collection of BLOGS about Mr. Elie Hobeika,
the various Lebanon Assassinations... etc. IF “In the Know "
and you think that the old Intelligence adage applies:

"Those who know don't tell and those who tell, don't know."
Think twice:
I want you to know that this does not apply here, because Lebanon
has lost a HERO, a Leader and a VISIONARY.
Remember, I will talk a little about the leopard changing his spots,....
is therefore extraordinarily sensitive and hemmed in with exceptional security measures....

We are determined to TELL the Whole World about this terrible INJUSTICE....


SHOUD BE IN CHARGE OF The tribunal AND its main goal should be to try those accused of carrying out several assassinations, attempted killings, and bomb attacks since January 24th 2002, the most prominent being Mr. Elie Hobeika's murder in a car bomb blast six years ago.

Notwithstanding all the hoopla about the IIIC and commissioner Brammertz:
Who cares who really did it? If it is useful for the U.S. government – and Israel, and the Lebanese opposition – to hold the government of Syria responsible, then such details are the concern only of the "reality-based community," which naively insists on an archaic devotion to facts.
An effective prosecution and a fair trial in the Hobeika assassination and in related attacks that occurred in Lebanon since January 24, 2002 are essential to fight impunity and to promote accountability in Lebanon and in the Middle East. In an atmosphere of insecurity and political uncertainty, the Hobeika Tribunal has the challenge of establishing its credibility with the Lebanese people and the international community. In time we will set out several areas that need to be addressed when the Hobeika Tribunal is to satisfy the promise of delivering justice? .

‏سبت النور - وأحد القيامة...

بقلم زينا الخوري

في مثل هذا اليوم المجيد وجدت أمنا البتول مريم العذراء وهي ذاهبة لزيارة قبر ولدها يسوع ‏لتدهنه بالطيب، كما كانت العادات اليهودية، وجدت حراس القبر وكانوا (6) ثلاثة من ‏اليهود وثلاثة من حراس الرومان مذهولين وقد أغمي عليهم. ولما نظرت الى الحجر الذي كان ‏وزنه اكثر من طنّين رأت ملاكين جالسين على الحجر فبادرت السيدة العذراء بالسؤال عن ابنها، ‏الذي مات مصلوباً، فأجابوها: لماذا تسألين عن الحي بين الأموات. إذهبي وبشّري التلاميذ ‏بقيامة المسيح، وهو سيظهر عليهم قريبا. وهكذا كان لما ظهر المسيح المتجلي لابساً لباساً ‏ابيضاً كالثلج قال لتلاميذه: أنا هو!! فاقترب «توما» ولم يُصدقه في البداية لكن بعدها قال ‏له الرب يسوع: تعال وضع يديك مكان المسامير، ففتح يديه ولما أدخل توما أصابعه اغمي ‏عليه هو الآخر. المسيح قام من بين الأموات، ووطأ الموت بالموت، ووهب الحياة للذين في ‏القبور، لأنه كان قد أعطي الحياة لألعازر الذي كان ميتاً منذ اسبوع، وقد بدأ جسده ‏بالاهتراء، ولما اقامه واعطاه الحياة كانت رسالة للبشرية حتى تعلم إن من يؤمن بالمسيح، ‏وإن مات فسيحيا لذلك وبهذه المناسبة الجليلة التي هي من أهم اسرار الديانة المسيحية. ‏‏«القيامة» اتضرع اليك يا يسوع، ان يكون جالسا بقربك في ملكوت السماوي كل الذين رقدوا ‏بالمسيح خاصة الأقارب، الأحباب، القادة الأبرار الذين استشهدوا ليحيا الوطن وهنا لا بد ‏من ان اخص بالذكر الشهيد المظلوم المغفور له القائد ايلي حبيقه لأنه قضى ظلماً ونحن بأمسّ ‏الحاجة اليه يا يسوع خاصة في هذا الظرف الأليم بالذات وايضا المغفور له بيار امين الجميّل ‏وغيرهم وغيرهم وغيرهم فنستحلفكِ ايتها الأم العذراء ان تتضرعي لأجل موتانا وان تطلبي من ‏ابنك الحبيب القائم من الموت ان يُحيي من نحن بحاجة اليهم. اكيد بالروح فوجود ارواحهم ‏بيننا يعني انهم لم يموتوا الا بالجسد، وهذا الأمل ممكن ان يكون حاصلا من قبل ونحن ربما لا ندري ‏بذلك نقول: من آمن بالمسيح وإن مات فسيحيا أكيد سيحيا بالروح الى ابد الآبدين ودهر ‏الداهرين آمين.‏وهنا السر الأكبر... ويا ويل من لا يصدق بقيامة المسيح. فالروح المسيحية تبقى مدى الحياة ‏ساكنة بين اهلها ومحبيها ومرفرفة عليهم دون ان يدروا، لكنهم يشعرون دائما بحضورها ‏السري بينهم وهناك علامات إحساس وشعور لا تظهر للعيان... المسيح قام حقاً قام وكل قيامة ‏وأنتم بخير.‏
- طلب الوكيل البلجيكي لرئيس الوزراء الإسرائيلي أرييل شارون المحامي أدريان ماسيه، نقل الدعوى على موكله لمسؤوليته عن مجزرة صبرا وشاتيلا، من بلجيكا الى لبنان، لأن لا علاقة بين صبرا وشاتيلا وبلجيكا، ولأن لبنان تبنى قانون عفو يشمل السيد شارون، غير أن المدعي العام البلجيكي بيار مورليه رفض هذه المناورة المفاجئة، مؤكداً أن لا مبررات قانونية لتحويل القضية الى لبنان.???

الجيش يحمي الوطن في السر والعلانية
العميد الركن .....R. AZAR THE New james j. neocon counterintelligence CZAR?










شهد الوطن في الأيام الأخيرة إنجازاً مهماً للجيش, تمثل في كشف خلية عدوة خطيرة, حيث أن مديرية المخابرات في الجيش إستطاعت وبكفاءة عالية أن تكشف شبكة تجسس على قدر كبير من الخطورة, تعمل لمصلحة العدو الإسرائيلي. فالشبكة ونظراً لطبيعة المهام التي كلفت بها من قبل العدو قد تعتبر الأخطر وهي جديدة من نوعها ضمن شبكات التجسس التي اكتشفت حتى الآن في لبنان, وأخطر ما فيها مهامها الشبابية والعلمية والإقتصادية والمالية.

لو اجرينا قراءة هادئة للموضوع, نستطيع أن نصل بالفكر المتجرد الى القول بأن العدو الإسرائيلي المهزوم حقاً في لبنان, يئس من اللبنانيين أمنياً وعسكرياً. فكل طاقاته وإمكاناته العسكرية لم توفر له نصراً في لبنان على مدى نيف وعشرين عاما,ًُ وقد خرج منذ عامين تقريبا مدحوراً مهزوماً ميدانياً. واستمرت التداعيات في الذهنية الإسرائيلية لتخلق حالة يأس داخل مؤسسة العدو العسكرية من أي عمل أمني أو إقتحام أمني للبنان, وهذا نصر يستطيع كل من ينتمي للبنان أو للعرب أن يفاخر به. فنحن في لبنان لم نهزم العدو فقط في الميدان, بل هزمناه في نفسه وفي ذهنه حتى أضحى الواقع اللبناني والمثل اللبناني هاجساً للعدو.

كذلك غير العدو الإسرائيلي نمط تعاونه معنا, واختار ميادين اخرى, الشخص البسيط يراها تافهة والشخص العادي يراها مهمة والشخص ذو الفكر والبعد الإستراتيجي يراها في منتهى الخطورة, فهي أخطر من العمل العسكري والأمني المباشر.

لقد اختار دراسة الشباب في الخارج وحركتهم في الداخل والعمل والنشاط الإقتصادي والإدارة المالية؛ واذا أجرينا كما قلت قراءة هادئة لهذه الأمور ندرك حجم مخاطرها.

فأي عمل تقوم به بحاجة الى أمرين: الطاقة المحركة والمادة المحركة.

المادة المحركة تحققها بالمال وتوفرها ضمن علاقاتك الإقتصادية, والطاقة المحركة هي الطاقة البدنية ذات الخبرة أو من دونها أي الطاقة العادية, والتي هي الشباب في الحالين. اذاً توجه العدو الى الطاقة المحركة والمادة المحركة أي الى وسائل التقدم.

بدأ بجمع المعلومات عبر الشبكة السيئة الذكر بعناصرها. لماذا يجمع هذه المعلومات؟ هل ليغني مجموعات أو موسوعات عالمية بها خدمة إعلامية للبنان؟ طبعاً لا, انه يجمع المعلومات ليحضر القرار الذي يعطل به الطاقة المحركة, أو ليفسد علينا إمكانات إمتلاك المادة المحركة, أو يضرب الاثنين معاً. قد لا يرى الشخص منا أهمية في مسألة جمع المعلومات عن الطلاب اللبنانيين في الإتحاد السوفياتي السابق أو روسيا الحالية أو الصين أو الهند أو باكستان الذين يدرسون العلوم الطبيعية والفيزياء النووية, ولكن لو استعدنا الماضي لوجدنا أن كثيراً من العلماء اللبنانيين في الغرب قتلوا بعد ان وصلوا, ونذكر جميعاً العالم حسن كامل الصبّاح.

أما بالنسبة للإقتصاد فنحن لم ندخل الحرب سنة 1967, وبقي لبنان عسكريا خارج الحرب؛ ولكن لبنان الذي نأى بنفسه عن الميدان, خسر ما يعادل نصف مجموع خسائر الذين حاربوا حيث انهار اقتصادنا بتأثير من اليد الغربية المحركة صهيونياً, وذلك منذ انهيار بنك إنترا وما تبعه.

كان العدو الإسرائيلي يقول سابقاً: اننا لا نحسب للبنان حساباً, وأحد سياسييه كان يقول: انني لا أعرف من الذي سيوقع معاهدة السلام الأولى مع إسرائيل من العرب ولكنني أحدد قطعاً من سيكون الثاني, وكان يقصد لبنان, فبنظرهم أن لبنان نظراً لضعفه ولعدم توفر الطاقة والإمكانات اللازمة للصمود, فهو لن يستطيع أن يواجه إسرائيل, وإسرائيل لن تحسب له حساباً في خانة الأعداء – حسب قولهم.

لكن لبنان عبر تجميع عناصر القوة فيه, تفّه الفكر الصهيوني وتفّه السياسة الصهيونية والإستراتيجية الصهيونية, وهزمهم من الباب الذي لم يكن أحد منهم يحسب له حساباً, في الأمن والميدان, وبات لبنان يشكل بعبعاً لإسرائيل. والأخطر أن لبنان اذا إستعاد وضعه الإقليمي إقتصادياً سيدفن الحلم الإسرائيلي بأن يكون الصهيوني سيد المنطقة والمستأثر بخيراتها, أو في أسوأ الظروف المفوض السامي الغربي, الذي يديرها لمصلحته ولمصلحة الغرب. ان لبنان اذا إستعاد عافيته الإقتصادية سيقضي على هذا الحلم كما قضى على الحلم الإسرائيلي في الأمن مع الأرض.

لهذا, نحن على باب مرحلة جديدة في الصراع مع العدو, ظاهره الهدوء وباطنه النار والجوع. لذلك يستطيع كل منا نحن العسكريين في الجيش اللبناني ان يفاخر بهذا الإنجاز العظيم الذي فضح بدء المخطط الإسرائيلي لإلتهام لبنان علمياً وإقتصادياً. فكما تمكنت المقاومة المدعومة من الجيش والحكم والشقيقة سوريا, ومع ذلك وبعد ذلك, بوحدة الشعب اللبناني, كما تمكنت هذه العناصر الخمسة متضافرة من دفن الحلم الأول, فإن الجيش اللبناني بكشفه هذه الشبكة وبتعهده بمسألة الأمن الحالي والأمن الإقتصادي, فإنه يجهض إمكانات تحقق الحلم الثاني, ويبقى أن يتابع كل في موقعه عمله لدفن هذا الحلم.

"In his law practice, he is best known for being an accomplice
to MURDER, by bringing the case of Victims of Sabra and
Shatila v. Ariel Sharon et al., at the instigation of his BUDDY
Paul Woolfowitz.... to serve MOSSAD and OSP, under the law
of universal jurisdiction in Belgium, where he won a judgment
against the accused before a change in Belgian law removed
the jurisdiction of the court...after the MURDER of ELIE HOBEIKA
has been executed, courtesy of DOD, MOSSAD and Asef Shawkat."
The Sabra and Shatila case in Belgium in 2001, and ALL its
various aspects was a "Noisy Operation", created for the
sole purpose of consuming the terrible crime against
Elie Hobeika by Mossad, Assef Shawkat and CIA.
The whole case and the Belgium law, was very swiftly killed,
immediately after the terrorist car bomb of January 24th 2002,
after the Assassination of Mr.Elie Hobeika, Fares Sweidan,
Dimitri Ajram, and Waleed El-Zein, in Hazmieh... the heart
of Lebanese Military Intelligence and the "SCS"...

When I started my investigations of this horrendous
assassination in January 24th 2002, a veteran U.S.
intelligence operative with experience subcontracting
both for the CIA and the NSA suggested a similar
possibility. "It was a noisy operation", the veteran
intelligence operative said. The operative referred me
to the film Victor, Victoria. "It was about a woman
playing a man playing a woman. Perhaps you should
think about this from that aspect and ask yourself if
you wanted to have something that was in your face,
that didn't make sense, that couldn't possibly be them".
The intelligence operative added, "Think of it this way:
how could the experts think this could actually be
something of any value? Wouldn't they dismiss what
they were seeing?"

'AS SOON AS certain topics are raised," George Orwell once wrote,
"the concrete melts into the abstract and no one seems able to
think of turns of speech that are not hackneyed: Prose consists
less and less of words chosen for the sake of their meaning, and
more and more of phrases tacked together like the sections of a
prefabricated henhouse." Such a combination of vagueness and sheer
incompetence in language, Orwell warned, leads to political

No issue better illustrates Orwell's point than coverage of this
special investigation, into the murder of a Lebanese Hero; Mr. Elie
Hobeika. I have deliberately chosen to confuse the issue with a wide
Triumvirate and a web of false... names and bogus decoys that seem to
demonstrate vagueness and confusion. The crux of the matter is to
keep "them" guessing .... I will have the last Word on this one, no
matter what the cost is , and no matter the threats and intimidation
tactics, used over the years... in 8 different countries... !

Charles RIZK and Sanioura will be held PERSONALLY responsible, if they
continue to block the Investigation into the car bomb assassination of
Mr. Elie HOBEIKA, Waleed El-Zein, Mitri AJRAM and Fares Sweidan,
January 24th 2002.

يوم برَّأ الفاتيكان اليهود من صلب المسيح حمل الرسالة المسيحية الى طوباوية، تخطّت الذات ‏البشرية، وترفَّعت على الجراح، لتصير حالة مغفرة.‏
قيل يومها ان صفحة جديدة، ونقية، فُتِحت لمصلحة الانسانية جمعاء. لكنها صفحة يصرّ بعض ‏اليهود على ان يكتبوا عليها رسائلهم بحبر العتم، فيقدون المسامير العصرية في جسد المسيح، ‏ويكررون صلبه كل يوم.‏
المسمار الاول كان اسمه «ذي ديفنشي كود». كتاب تحوّل الى فيلم سينمائي، يتحدث بكثير من ‏الوقاحة عن علاقة بين السيد المسيح ومريم المجدلية اثمرت ابنة.‏
المسمار الثاني، كان اسمه «انجيل يهوذا». وتحدث عن وثائق سرية تدور حول الموضوع نفسه، ‏وكلها اساءة الى العقيدة المسيحية.‏
اليوم حضّر لنا اللوبي اليهودي في اميركا مسماراً جديداً، وطويلاً، قرر ان يطلقه يوم الجمعة ‏العظيمة، ويتحدث عن قبر المسيح وعائلته. المسمار الصدئ هذا، فيلم سينمائي عنوانه: «قبر ‏يسوع الضائع»، صوّره مخرج فيلم «التيتانيك».‏
فيلم وثائقي يزعم ان بعثة تنقيب عن الاثار اكتشفت عام 1980، في حيث تالبوت جنوب ‏القدس، قبراً يحتوي رفاة يسوع المسيح «وزوجته» مريم المجدلية «وابنه» يهوذا.‏
في ذاك القبر وجدت عشرة نواويس تعود للقرن الاول للميلاد كُتِبت عليها اسماء يسوع، مريم، ‏يوسف، يهوذا ومتى. وكما في كل مرة غضب الفاتيكان، واعترض الاكليروس، ... وطُعن المصلوب من ‏جديد بحربة عصرية!‏
يوم الجمعة العظيمة اسجد امام قبرك يا يسوع، واغسل قدميك بدموعي. واطلب لهم الغفران.‏
حملت لهم رسالة المحبة فصلبوك!‏
بشرتهم بالخلاص فدقوا المسامير في يديك ورجليك.‏
شفيت اوجاعهم فطعنوك بحربة. اطعمتهم سمكة فقدموا لك حية. وما تزال افاعيهم بعد الفي ‏سنة تخرج من اوكارها لتلسع جسدك المقدس، وتبث سمومها في العالم كله.‏
لكن صليبك هو الرجاء. وهو الاقوى. هو المنتصر من البداية وحتى النهاية.‏
اغفر لهم، ولو انهم يدرون ماذا يفعلون.‏

اما المسألة الثانية والتي يجب ان لا تغيب عن بال احد انه إذا أعتقد البعض ان المحكمة إذا أقرّت تحت ضغط وخارج توافق اللبنانيين يستطيع حرف مسارها فواجب علينا تذكير من يلزم أن الجرائم لم تبدأ عام 2004 في عين المريسة بل إبتدأت في الدامور وبريح وبحمدون وكفرمتى وكفرنبرخ فهناك إرتكبت المجازر بحق الأطفال والرضّع والنساء ومن واجب الجميع وخصوصاً الدول العظمى أن يتخلّوا عن العدالة الإستنسابية ويطالبوا بالعدالة الشاملة لمعرفة من خططّ وشارك وساهم ونفّذ جميع الجرائم التي إرتكبت على أرض الوطن ، وهذه الجرائم لن تسقط بمرور الزمن ولا يستطيع أحد محّوها من ذاكرة اللبنانيين ، لا المتصالحين على غفلة من الزمن
ولا حتى مدّعي نشر الديموقراطية وحماتها في منطقة الشرق اأوسقط

It is noteworthy that the State Department's list of global terrorist
incidents for 2002 worldwide failed to list the car bombing attack on
Hobeika and his party.... But Listed a small Hand Grenade thrown at a
U.S. franchise in the middle of the night when the place was closed, empty
and no one was hurt? The White House wanted to ensure the terror attack
on Mr. Elie Hobeika, and his party of three young men with families, was
censored from the report. The reason was simple: this attack ultimately had
Washington's and Israel's fingerprints all over it....

Given the actual climate of political cacophonies, deceit, deception and
intrigue in Lebanon of today, Lebanon of the LIARS of NEOCONVILLE,
it has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Mr. Elie Hobeika
was a visionary Leader and a Hero.
Lebanon will probably never know a Leader of this caliber.
My dear friend ELIE, you have been reborn on January 24th 2002.
Heroes are reborn the day of their Martyrdom .

ELIE, you are more alive today, than many living political corpses,
walking and talking in Beirut Lebanon every day, until resurrection.

At a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act"

A U.S. intelligence source revealed to me, that in the world of intelligence
"carve out" subcontracts such confusion is often the case with "plausible
deniability" being a foremost concern in ALL covert operations, especially
in Elie Hobeika's case on January 24th 2002, & Hariri's Feb. 14th 2005...
Notwithstanding Jacques CHIRAC's gesticulations and false sorrow for the loss
of his "friend" Rafic HARIRI, he has been regularly organizing official meetings in Paris for Asef Shawkat with his services to secure SYRIA for and with Asef Shawkat,hence,In a series of secret meetings in Israel and Europe, between
2000 and July 2006, Syrians, Americans and Israelis formulated understandings for orchestrating several murders in Lebanon ...and were executed well, with great precision and excellent timing like clock work, the extreme sophistication of Hariri's MURDER is a case in point for later comments in due course...

Fabrications, LIES , False Flag operations, CIA and MOSSAD.

It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt,
that ALL stories which came out immediately
after the Assassination of Mr.Elie Hobeika, Fares Sweidan,
Dimitri Ajram, and Waleed El-Zein, were completely &
utterly FALSE. It was a pure fabrication by the KILLERS;
AND the CIA'S Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC),
to cover their tracks. Standard operating procedure...101
I mean by that, the stories relating to Elie trying to find
IMAD Moughnieh, the alleged attempted contacts with CIA,
MOSSAD, etc. , the missing Iranian diplomats, the 9 most
wanted by CIA, whose names have been circulated then,
on purpose by CIA, to 7 ministers in the Lebanese
Government, etc. [names which CIA has completely forgotten now,
one of them has proven since to be a CIA asset himself...]
ALL these were a tortuous web of lies to cover the
tracks of the Murderers of CIA, MOSSAD, and their Syro-Lebanese

Special ongoing Investigation.

Apr. , 2007- On September 15, 2001, just four days after the 9-11 attacks,
CIA Director George Tenet provided President [sic] Bush with a Top Secret
"Worldwide Attack Matrix"-a virtual license to kill targets deemed to be a
threat to the United States in some 80 countries around the world. The Tenet
plan, which was subsequently approved by Bush, essentially reversed the
executive orders of four previous U.S. administrations that expressly
prohibited political assassinations. Mr. Elie Hobeika will be the first
target of the US administration, to pave the way for its Iraq Invasion .
It planned to directly control the "Energy Basin" and ALL the OIL
Transportation routes,from Pipelines to the Maritime avenues and choke
points in the Gulf areas, and from central Asia to Mauritania and beyond.
But most of all, Mr. Elie Hobeika will be made to pay dearly with his life,
for daring to change his politics and views, after experiencing first hand,
and their CULTURE OF VIOLENCE , Intrigue, murder & very bad Politics.
The BUSH+CHENEY Energy MATRIX, coming to a place near you SOON.
The awakening is near. It will be like a hurricane passing with untold fury.
Mark my Words: In the 80s... the Catch phrase in Washington DC was , is :
Ohh: " Senator, I Don't Recall... " during the Iran-Contra Gate... of R. Reagan.
In the coming years, very soon, the Catch Phrase in Washington DC, is for sure,
and will be : " Senator: It is YET to be determined..." because we learned well;
the lessons of Iran/Contra... we think we managed to hide our dirty deeds WELL;
" Who did what, to the energy security of the USA, where and When...???
" It is Yet to be determined ??? Is the Senate & the House "In" on the
In the New Energy World War IV , NEOCONVILLE Matrix GATE... ????
It's going to be HELL on the POTOMAC.... Mark My Words.

Elie Hobeika knew first hand about ALL their dirty tricks and deeds,
and he knew first hand, all about their sources and methods & tools, in
the 70s and 80s, they wanted him out, because the US was about to
re-enact the same deeds in IRAQ and beyond, to fracture the whole
area along sectarian lines, in order to serve Israeli and American
interests for decades to come.
Cheney's back office and OSP were to make this operation a prime
example of what is to come in the New Middle East of BUSH.

The Domination of the Energy resources and its ROUTES, could now begin in
earnest, for Mr. Cheney and his GANG, wanted for friend and Foe, to be
forewarned of the Harsh consequences of opposing their monstrous and
Machiavellian Plans for the New " New Middle East " second or third edition.
This Jan. 24th 2002, will be made an example to see worldwide... within
Intelligence circles worldwide, especially in Lebanon and the immediate

This targeted Political assassination would pave the way for another attempt
by the USA, to reshape the Politics of Lebanon, by re-engineering its Pawns
and tools, the Trio Joumblatt, Geajea, A.Gemayyel with the Hariri sauce,
after taking out the cumbersome Hariri Senior 3 years later, in a strikingly
similar operation, for as the manipulation and penetration of the Syrian and
Lebanese Intelligence services is exactly identical in nature and pawns.....
Hence the US of A , will do its utmost to make sure that the HOBEIKA
Murder will not be investigated in any way, shape or far.
No free press, no courage, no guts , no glory for the Lebanon, the land
of the legendary Cedars? Despite the fact that some of the journalists,
know quite a bit on many issues relating to this and other murders, as well
as some Politicians....

The relationship between the United States and Syria is still contradictory
and obscure. Washington is facing increasing problems in the Middle East.
In his speeches, Bush continues to accuse both Iran and Syria of causing
instability in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, although some
political moves seem to suggest that a distinction has been made between
these two countries, because it is clear and obvious that they are partners
in some of the covert political assassinations that took place in Lebanon,
through manipulations, penetrations of secret services and military intelligence
structures in Syria and Lebanon to directly serve US and Israeli interests.
Hence, the International tribunal has no legs to stand on as of yet, and the
jury is still out to see whether it will ever take shape or where it will be driven
to achieve goals which have nothing to do with "Truth", Justice or the like.
The obvious game of these parties, "playing enemies" is very very clear and
transparent for the world to see.

People tend to forget so quickly that the USA, especially the Pentagon, was
the main driving force behind the elimination of the Belgian Law of 2001,
which was the main reason for indicting Ariel Sharon for the sabra Shatila
Massacre, and the most adamant adversary of such tribunal was the US
The US has a long history of opposing such international bodies and such
claims to International investigations and criminal courts run by "international
judges".... this will not change now, to the contrary the US will do its
utmost to KILL any such jurisdictions... and they will do it using the usual
proxies to do the dirty work for them, and they will keep pretending to be
for Justice, freedom, Peace and democracy, which is utterly False.

ALL the Investigations since the Hariri Murder of Feb. 14th 2005,
which has striking resemblance with the Hobeika Murder of Jan. 24th 2002,
in its Modus Operandi PRIOR and after the horrendous Car bombs, in the
sense that both personalities have been demonized since 1998 in shady
publications in Beirut and elsewhere , like the infamous book [The Black
Hands ]which was fabricated by Jameel El-Sayyed from Lebanese
Intelligence, and Military Intelligence which provided a lot of the info
on Hariri Senior, on the shady deals of Fouad Sannioura and complete
fabrications and lies about Mr. Elie Hobeika, which proved utterly baseless
since, like all the other publications which came out in the ensuing years,
and continue to this day... It seems that CIA has to find an ongoing "safe"
to burry all its dirty laundry in Lebanon... From "VEIL" to MEHLIS !
The clown who was chosen to put his name on this book ( Black Hands ) is a
rabid buffoon by the name of Najah Wakim. Just like Naji N. Najjar has done
2 years later with another book, using another criminal idiot as "Author", in
a similar Intelligence operation to smear another target for assassination,
Mr. Elie Hobeika, as a prelude to a bigger HIT on Rafic Hariri, 3 years later.
These operations are linked and the criminal mind is the same.

The project of this book is the work of a Sunni tool of Jameel El-Sayyed ,
another puppet, tool like so many others, Tahseen Khayyat, Chairman of
NTV or NEWTVSAT,who is but another lackey who made a fortune
from printing several million copies of the Holy Qoran in Saudi Arabia,
and is but another pawn in the Lebanese Chess game, masterminded by
CIA, Saudi Intelligence, CIA & MOSSAD, among other Intelligence
agencies fighting for "space" on the Lebanese Turf....

Jamil Al-Sayyed was/is CIA, with a direct link to MOSSAD also .
He is a multidimensional agent, working for Syrian Israeli and American
Intelligence, instead of working for the Lebanese National Interest.
Jameel El-Sayyed is the Master Manipulator in Lebanon.
He masterminded the arrival of Lahoud in 1998, together with CIA.
Stories abound in Lebanon about Jameel Al-Sayyed being the "real"
President and the real power behind the facade of the Lebanese
institutions for years. His "Training in the early 80s, his career
path, his personal friendship with Bashar Al-Assad, his known and
documented contacts with American and Israeli handlers, speaks
volumes about this "classic" manipulation Made In Langley and Herzlia.
Emile Lahoud is absolutely perfect for the period 1998/2008, because
they know that he is a harmless idiot, and will accept to be completely
and utterly manipulated by Jameel-El Sayyed.

Jameel el-Sayyed was the main conduit and mastermind of the Hariri
Assassination, which he started planning for since 1998.
Jamil El-Sayyed is well known for being extremely smart, intelligent
and extremely manipulative. He was/is a FAVORITE of the weasel Walid
Joumboulatt, and his main contact and main source of information
for years, during the Pax Syro-Americana in Lebanon. Waleed Joumblatt
is part and parcel of the Israeli American manipulation to eliminate
Rafic Hariri, despite his outward signs of sorrow and fake emotions.
Waleed is a master clown in disguise, and a pathological liar, just
like his masters in Neoconville. The remaining "tools" are : Geagea
the Killer, who did not hesitate in murdering his own brother in law,
in front of his son, blowing his brains out... , Amine Gemayel who at
the behest of CIA, ordered the terror car bomb of Bir El-Abd, targeting
Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah in 1985, killing 85 innocent civilians
in the process, in retaliation to the Marine Barracks bombing of 1983.
A storm ensued in USA at the time, hence the charade of the Book: VEIL
authored by Bob Woodward, another CIA asset...
This was another extra-judicial assassination attempt ordered by the US
governemnt in the 80s. The tools were Lebanese Military Intelligence and
Amine Gemayel. More later.

The Lebanese people are still not fully aware, that there is absolutely
no free press in Lebanon whatsoever. ALL the Media in Lebanon are
completely and utterly manipulated to serve specific interests and ALL
these interests are not Lebanese in any way shape or form.... so far...
No rude awakening as of yet ???
Subsequent "extension" of the UN so-called commission
investigating the Hariri Murder, have been carefully and deliberately
crafted by USA and its Chief Neocon and friend of Karl Rove, Jeffrey
"Neozionist" Feltman, to hide the obvious link between the two terror
bombs of Hobeika and Hariri , & make sure any attempt at investigating
" political Murder " in Lebanon starts from October of 2004 and beyond,
to avoid at ALL cost getting to Elie Hobeika's Murder, which is ,
MADE IN USA... It is even forbidden to talk about the Elie Hobeika
murder in Lebanon's Media and official circles, thanks to the growing,
direct and overwhelming influence of the US Government agencies in this
"particular" Sinniora shadow of a government, filled with weak cronies,
made to measure in USA's Neocons Dark rooms of Condi Rice and
Dick Cheney & Elliot Abrams ,to obediently serve American Neocons
Interests in the " New Middle East...".

According to high level European intelligence officials, Bush's counselor,
Karl Rove, used the new presidential authority to silence a popular Lebanese
Christian politician who was planning to offer irrefutable evidence that
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon engineered the massacre of hundreds of
Palestinian men, women, and children in the Beirut refugee camps of Sabra
and Shatilla in 1982. In addition, Sharon provided the SLA forces & IDF who
carried out the grisly task. At the time of the massacres, Elie Hobeika was
intelligence chief of Lebanese Christian forces in Lebanon who were battling
Palestinians and other Muslim groups in a bloody civil war. He was also the
chief liaison to Israeli Defense Force (IDF) personnel in Lebanon. An
official Israeli inquiry into the massacre at the camps, the Kahan
Commission, merely found Sharon "indirectly" responsible for the slaughter
and fingered Hobeika as the chief instigator, while in fact Mr. Elie Hobeika
was never anywhere near Sabra or Shatila in Sep. 82, he was very busy
investigating the assassination of President elect Bashir Gemayel .

The Sabra and Shatila Massacre was planned within the Invasion plans
of the IDF in 1982 when it invaded Lebanon, and it appears under the
name of Operation Spark, and Operation Iron Brain.

Its finer details were worked out between the 1st of September when the
alliance with Bashir collapsed, and the 12th of the same month when Sharon
met with Bashir. The LF was perceived as unreliable and that the mopping up
of the camps was to proceed with or without them. AMAN could rely on the
SLA to get the job done, and it would assist them with IDF Special Forces,
or Sayerets as they are called in Hebrew. It is quite clear that the
Sayerets were in the camps as the former fighters in the camp have told us
repeatedly . But the presence of the Sayerets indicates clearly that the
Massacre was what is called in intelligence lingo a Black Operation, which
is a secret operation that is carried out by the intelligence agents and
special forces upon a decision taken by the Chief Executive and a few of his
ministers. Israeli Secret Services and the Sayerets have carried out many
Black Operations, including the Qibya Massacre of 1953, the attack on the
Beirut International Airport in 1968, and the assassination of Abu Jihad in
Tunisia, 1988. During the 1982 Invasion, and according to IDF historian
Samuel Katz, the Sayerets were deeply involved in the military operations.
These forces,which like all Special Forces in the world, are made up of hard
brutal killers, who volunteer for the job and know exactly what it entails.

In short, Israel's Secret Services' role in Sabra and Shatilla Massacre is
not only undeniable, but is far more involved than what "Kahan Commission"
stated. One day when Appendix B finally comes to light, this theory will
be proven, although it is clear that there is enough evidence to back it up.
As an epilogue, Israel's secret services, CIA & the Mossad, assassinated
Elie Hobeika in Beirut in 2002, using CIA & local witting proxies, in what
is obviously an attempt to conceal the truth about the Massacre. If anyone
doubted the involvement of the Israeli intelligence, this should silence the
naysayers. Mr. Elie Hobeika Never set foot at Sabra & Shatila in September
of 1982, nor had anything to do with that horrible crime, in any way shape
or form. It was an IDF operation with AMAN and MOSSAD at the Helm.
Besides Sayyeret Metkal's units in the camps, there were three additional
units which came from 3 different entrances to the camps, and the SLA
forces of Saad Haddad, brought into Beirut by IDF.
ALL these units were under direct orders of IDF officers, and IDF troops
were totally occupying Beirut militarily .
The First unit was lead by Z.M. , The second unit was lead by M.M. and
the 3rd by C.G. It is noteworthy to say that M.M. had met and had dinner
with B.N. in his home in west Beirut, before entering the camps, he dined
and spent the night there....but these units were brought in the camps on
the last day of the operations, to set them up for the world media to see
and portray as if they were the instigators. Combatants who were there said
that upon arrival to the camps, they were shocked to see all the killings,
because ALL of these units arrived there when the Sayyarets had finished
the job completely with the SLA forces of Saad Haddad. These are eye witness
accounts. Those LF will be forced into the mountain war within few months,
and a new trap will be set up for them by IDF, whereby eye witness accounts
say that every time they advanced into a new village, winning a very bloody
battle with casualties, orders will come for them to retreat from IDF officers.
In some cases IDF artillery were shooting at both sides,reigniting the battles
again and again. Thousands of Christians were massacred, their villages in
ruins in a futile fight until exhaustion and complete retreat.
This is the legacy of IDF in Lebanon over 40 years.

The Kahan Commission never called on Hobeika to offer testimony in his
defense. However, in response to charges brought against Sharon before a
special war crimes court in Belgium, Hobeika was urged to testify against
Sharon, according to well-informed Lebanese sources. Hobeika was prepared
to offer a different version of events than what was contained in the Kahan
report. A 1993 Belgian law permitting human rights prosecutions was unusual
in that non-Belgians could be tried for violations against other
non-Belgians in a Belgian court. Under pressure from the Bush
administration, the law was severely amended and the extra territoriality
provisions were curtailed.

Hobeika headed the Lebanese forces intelligence agency since the mid- 1970s
and he soon developed close ties to the CIA. He was a frequent visitor to
the CIA's headquarters at Langley, Virginia. After the Syrian invasion of
Lebanon in 1990, Hobeika held a number of cabinet positions in the Lebanese
government, a proxy for the Syrian occupation authorities. He also served in
the parliament. In July 2001, Hobeika called a press conference and
announced he was prepared to testify against Sharon in Belgium and revealed
that he had evidence of what actually occurred in Sabra and Shatilla.
Hobeika also indicated that Israel had flown members of the South Lebanon
Army (SLA) into Beirut International Airport in an Israeli Air Force C130
transport plane, in full view of dozens of witnesses, including members of
the Lebanese army and others. SLA troops under the command of Major Saad
Haddad were slipped into the camps to commit the massacres. The SLA troops
were under the direct command of Ariel Sharon and an Israeli Mossad agent
provocateur named Rafi Eitan. Hobeika offered evidence that a former U.S.
ambassador to Lebanon was aware of the Israeli plot. In addition, the IDF
had placed a camera in a strategic position to film the Sabra and Shatilla
massacres. Hobeika was going to ask that the footage be released as part of
the investigation of Sharon.

After announcing he was willing to testify against Sharon, Hobeika became
fearful for his safety and began taking precautionary moves. Hobeika was
not aware that his threats to testify against Sharon had triggered a series
of fateful events that reached well into the White House and Sharon's
On Jan. 24, 2002, Hobeika's car was blown up by a remote controlled bomb
placed in a parked Mercedes along a street in the Hazmieh section of Beirut.
The blast was a "cone-shaped charge" that used "moldable high explosives
such as SEMTEX H," shaped to create a high-speed, high temperature blast
wave. The blast took place in two stages over a fraction of a second.
During the first stage, the blast "forces all the air out with tremendous
force," creating a vacuum, but as air rushes back in, it creates another
tremendous force that causes further damage. "It's a trademark of bombs
made by CIA and the Pentagon", in their regular training of proxy forces
over the years, in various exchanges of military expertise with Lebanese
Army Intelligence, and the Lebanese forces in the 1980s, and elsewhere in
the world.
Such expertise was deliberately aimed at eliminating Sheikh Muhammad
Hussein Fadlallah, the chief interpreter of Islamic law for the Shia'.
An attempt was made on Fadlallah's life on March 8, 1985, when an
explosive-packed car was driven into a Beirut suburb about 50 yards
from Fadlallah's residence. The car disappeared in a blinding blue
flash that killed 85 people and wounded 200 more. Longs weeks of
training were carried out in various places, including Safra, where
Israeli and American expertise was also brought to bear, in order to
insure success for this major operation of CIA and MOSSAD, with
Lebanese Army Intelligence, and it was supposed to be a revenge for
the Marine Barracks Bombing of 1983, in which 241 service members
died in a suicide operation, believed to have been carried out by
Hizbullah in its infancy....
This operation was a total failure, and Sheikh Muhammad Hussein
Fadlallah survived miraculously, but the whole neighborhood was
devastated. CIA scrambled in Washington Dc and elsewhere to cover
their tracks and hide all evidence of their DIRECT involvement in
this operation from the US Congress, hence a book was written then,
by BOB WOODWARD, "VEIL" to fabricate a story about this US/Israeli
operation. It is interesting that Sheikh Fadlallah read Woodward's
book and cites its content in some of his interviews....
Hizbullah tracked several of the "executors" of the operations,
and at least 2 of them were executed....
A former State Department official said that the group behind the
bombing had been trained in the United States, and that there was
direct American involvement in the assassination attempt, CIA and
Lebanese Army Intelligence, headed then by Officer Johnny ABDO,
during the tenure of Amine Gemayel, and on direct orders from President
Amine Gemayel. Both Johnny Abdo and Amine Gemayel were/are, the Darlings
of all American Administrations until today....
The bomb exploded when Hobeika and his three associates, Fares Souweidan,
Mitri Ajram, and Waleed Zein, were driving their Range Rover past the
C4-laden Mercedes at 9:20 am Beirut time. The Range Rover's four passengers
were killed in the explosion. In case Hobeika's car had taken another route
through the neighborhood, two additional parked cars, located at two other
choke points, were also rigged with C4. The powerful bomb wounded a number
of other people in the vicinity. Other parked cars were destroyed and
buildings and homes were damaged. The Lebanese president, prime minister,
interior minister and the Military Prosecutor, all claimed that Israeli
agents were behind the attack, which was partially true, but they also
knew this to be, a CIA operation par excellence, since the Chief Architect
of the "Local" plans, timing , etc. was Jamil El-Sayyed , the head of the
Surete Generale, with direct assistance from Lebanese Military Intelligence,
and some latitude for the "end users" in the area of the crime... in a
specific building, with 3 floors...ideally situated for the surveillance and
execution of the crime... etc.etc. etc.

The IED in the Bomb laden Mercedes, was a "Shaped Charge " with a very
specific signature, hence the immediate arrival of large water tanker trucks
of the civil defense, to cleanse the area with high powered water guns for a
long long time... with specific direct orders from Baabda & Anjar and the
infamous Interior Minister Elias MURR, who will be given TOP honors from
Richard Noble of Interpol & FBI for a job well done in removing any traces
of the american/Israeli assassination of Hobeika, courtesy of AZAR...
Ghazi Kanaan will do the rest to cover ALL tracks and " reassure " the
grieving folks and relatives of his "deepest sorrow" and close this chapter
securely, in order to forbid any official investigations for Good, for he
was to serve his AMERICAN HANDLERS... well, very well , until 2005.

It is noteworthy that the State Department's list of global terrorist
incidents for 2002 worldwide failed to list the car bombing attack on
Hobeika and his party. The White House wanted to ensure the attack was
censored from the report. The reason was simple: the attack ultimately had
Washington's fingerprints on it.

The Mossad in the CIA.

It might be of public interest to know that a significant number of Israeli
Mossad agents are now working in the United States as employees of
the Central Intelligence Agency. These agents, some of whom are listed
below, are initially paid by the Israeli Embassy in Washington but Israel
then bills the U.S. Government for the salaries and is reimbursed in full
on a monthly basis.

Here is a partial listing of identified Mossad agents (as of 1 January, 2007)
along with their dates of birth and salaries. They do not have American
Social Security numbers and do not pay American taxes.

Betzalel Yanay 9/4/1978 $75,000 “
Eyal Artzel 5/27/1977 $ 87,000 “

Most of these U.S.-subsidized spies live in Potomac, McLean, Georgetown
and Arlington. I have their addresses and these will be published ASAP.
These are Israeli citizens but many of the middle level CIA officials are
American-born Jews and not included in this list but we do know who
they are. All of them, without exception, work for Israel and Israeli
interests, not American interests and more than a few are known to
be friendly with a number of the so-called Neocons, a significant
number of whom are also Israeli citizens.... More later.
A U.S. intelligence source revealed to me, that in the world of intelligence
"carve out" subcontracts such confusion is often the case with "plausible
deniability" being a foremost concern in ALL covert operations, especially
in Elie Hobeika's case on January 24th 2002, & Hariri's Feb. 14th 2005...
Notwithstanding Jacques CHIRAC's gesticulations and false sorrow for the loss
of his "friend" Rafic HARIRI, he has been regularly organizing official meetings in Paris for Asef Shawkat with his services to secure SYRIA for and with Asef Shawkat,hence,In a series of secret meetings in Israel and Europe, between
2000 and July 2006, Syrians, Americans and Israelis formulated understandings for orchestrating several murders in Lebanon ...and were executed well, with great precision and excellent timing like clock work, the extreme sophistication of Hariri's MURDER is a case in point for later comments in due course...

High level European intelligence sources now report that Karl Rove
personally coordinated Hobeika's assassination. The liaison with American
Intelligence was done through Bahjat Suleiman from Syrian Intelligence.
French DGSE played a major role in Paris, by helping in the " orchestrated "
attack on Mr. Elie Hobeika , with various shady books and publications, and
by giving refuge in France & sanctuary to criminal elements directly linked
to MOSSAD and CIA who authored these phony publications .
This help was provided prior to the murder, by tolerating a full fledged
smear campaign, orchestrated by intelligence operatives preparing the
grounds for a horrendous murder, and help continued after the murder has
been well executed , and after ALL the facts were available to the French
Government and DGSE, and even more phony publications by the same
individuals were willingly nurtured and publicized.

French DGSE knew full well the criminal history of these individuals,&
French DGSE knew full well that those guys were proven LIARS, but still
gives them sanctuary, help, assistance and more... in France today.
It is well established that CIA has a MAJOR base of operations in Paris,
together with DGSE , since Sep. 11th 2001, against the so-called war on
" Terror ", despite the highly publicized positions of Jacques Chirac,
critical of the Iraq invasion, prior to 2003 and beyond....

The hit on Hobeika was sold by CIA through a tortuous web & employed
Lebanese CIA agents. Syrian President Bashar Assad was trying to
curry favor with the Bush administration in the aftermath of 9-11 and was
more than willing to help the White House, and Ghazi Kanaan did everything
he could to help CIA in this Murderous Endeavour to assassinate Mr. Elie
Hobeika, and did ALL he could after the Murder to cover ALL tracks and
wash the crime scene with high powered water guns in the hour that followed
the Terror Car Bomb in Hazmieh...

Syria believed that the massive support it gave Washington in the
investigation of Al-Qaeda activists - "after September 11, the Syrian
leader, Bashar Assad, initiated the delivery of Syrian intelligence to the
U.S. The Syrians had compiled hundreds of files on Al-Qaeda, including
dossiers on the men who participated, and others who wanted to participate,
in the September 11 attacks," Seymour Hersh wrote in the July 28 issue of
The New Yorker - it would be able to "protect itself" in the face of
American pressure.

According to Sy Hersh, he uncovered close ongoing relations developed
between Syria , the CIA and FBI, in the course of which Syria transmitted
information that saved many American lives. "In one instance," Hersh writes,
"the Syrians learned that Al-Qaeda had penetrated the security services of
Bahrain and had arranged for a glider loaded with explosives to be flown
into a building at the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet headquarters there." Thanks to
Syria's help, the operation was thwarted. Agents of the CIA and FBI were
allowed to conduct "intelligence-gathering operations" in Aleppo, where they
questioned people who knew Mohammed Atta, one of the planners and
implementers of the September 11, 2001, attacks, and the family of bin
Laden, in Latakia. George Tenet, the director of the CIA, was a frequent
visitor to Syria and received full cooperation. At one stage, the CIA wanted
to establish a permanent "back" channel with Damascus but apparently ran
into some obstacles: the State Department, which didn't want the CIA poking
around in foreign policy...

CIA has prevailed over the state department, and CIA has now a permanent
base in Syria. Syria is still providing precious help to CIA on Al-Qaeda,
and this has been confirmed this summer by none other than the DCI
Michael Hayden himself, when he said specifically that Syria's information
on Al-Qaeda and other intelligence matters provided to the USA, are
Indispensable for CIA, and he refused to sign on the attack by Israel
on Syria ..... It seems that Syria still has a lot of information up its
sleeves on the Various assassinations in Lebanon, which are without a
shadow of a doubt, A joint Venture and a Joint US/SYRIAN operation with
Israeli blessing and tacit approval and logistical support, whenever this
is needed.... to further the technical skills of the Syrian Intelligence
apparatus of Asef Shawkat and other " penetrated bodies of Intelligence "
in Damascus and Lebanon.... More Later.

Hafez Assad, had been an ally of Bush's father during Desert Storm, a period
that saw Washington give a "wink and a nod" to Syria's occupation of
Lebanon. Rove wanted to help Sharon avoid any political embarrassment from
an in absentia trial in Brussels where Hobeika would be a star witness. Rove
and Sharon agreed on the plan to use Syrian Military Intelligence agents to
assassinate Hobeika. Rove saw Sharon as an indispensable ally of Bush in
ensuring the loyalty of the Christian evangelical and Jewish voting blocs in
the United States. Sharon saw the plan to have the United States coordinate
the hit as a way to mask all connections to Jerusalem.

Turning a blind eye was ordered by Assef Shawkat, the number two man in
Syrian military intelligence and a good friend and brother in law of Syrian
President Bashar Assad. Assad's intelligence services had already cooperated
with U.S. intelligence in resorting to unconventional methods to extract
information from al Qaeda detainees deported to Syria from the United States
and other countries in the wake of 9-11.
It is noteworthy here to disclose to the world, that Asef Shawkat had arranged
for the "Car accident"/assassination of Basil Al-Assad in 1994, in order to
pave the way for his marriage with Bushra Al-Assad. Basil was adamantly
opposed to this relationship and Asef knew that the only way to get his way,
is to KILL Basil Al-Assad....which he did.... more later!

The security was ordered to be completely removed , months before, from
Hobeika's neighborhood by General Raymond AZAR, the head of Lebanese
Military Intelligence and his deputy. CIA "arranged with their KILLERS"
remote controlled cars to be parked along Hobeika's route in Hazmieh; only
few hundred yards from the Barracks of Syrian Special Forces which are
stationed in the area near the Presidential palace , the ministry of Defense
and various Government and officers quarters. The KILLERS were ALL CIA
operatives who got DIRECT operational help from the Deuxieme Bureau,
the Lebanese Army's Military Intelligence Arm, and the USA's Embassy in
Awkar, their names, and names of their "Handlers", will be disclosed in due

This particular area is covered 24/7, by a very sophisticated American
multi-agency surveillance system to monitor Syrian and Lebanese security
activities, and is a " Choice " area to live in for its perceived high
security, [Courtesy of the Special Collections Services "SCS" , which is a
joint CIA & NSA & DIA team endeavor worldwide .]see below:

Our sources inform us that as part of the global encrypted and classified communications services at the US State Department's Communications Annex facility (State Communications Annex - SA26 - in Beltsville, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. Also affected to this Murder Inc. is the joint National Security Agency-Central Intelligence Agency Special Collection Service (SCS) (F6) ("CSSG") located in a building off Springfield Road and located adjacent to SA-26, which is located at 8101 Odell Road.

The plan to kill Hobeika had all the necessary caveats and built-in denial
mechanisms. If the Syrians were discovered beforehand or afterwards, Karl
Rove and his associates in the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans would be
ensured plausible deniability, given the professional denigration effort
started in earnest, years ahead, in USA,Israel,France,Lebanon,using multi
layered organizations to denigrate Mr. Elie Hobeika in books and shady
publications, in print and on the Internet. The operation took years in
planning, but succeeded in eliminating a Lebanese Icon, using Syrian,
and Lebanese operatives, with the full "tacit" agreement of a complex
web of actors, after years of intense covert disinformation, an Operation
run by highly skilled professionals, who use "witting" and "unwitting
elements"...a Classic Black operation for the people in the "Know"....

From David Halevy in Time Magazine in 1982, to Barbara Newman, & from
USCFL to local and other International creepy actors and seedy players,
Mr. Elie Hobeika bore the brunt of a skilled disinformation machine,
single-handedly, for well over 20 years. In other words, during Times of
WAR, and in "Peace Times" of the NEOCONS.,(FDDC),& DOD's OSP,
THE TRUTH will always be the first Victim.

Hobeika's CIA'S SHADOW.... in Beirut, a man only referred to as "Jason" by
Hobeika, was a frequent companion of the Lebanese politician during official
and off-duty hours. During Hobeika's year 2000 election campaigns for his
parliamentary seat, Jason was often in Hobeika's office offering support and
advice. After Hobeika's assassination, Jason became despondent over the
death of his colleague. Eventually, Jason disappeared abruptly from Lebanon
and reportedly later emerged in Pakistan. Jason was very close to Hobeika.
Karl Rove's involvement in the assassination of Hobeika may not have been
the last "hit" he ordered to help out Sharon. In March 2002, a few months
after Hobeika's assassination, another Lebanese Christian with knowledge of
Sharon's involvement in the Sabra and Shatilla massacres was gunned down
along with his wife in Sao Paulo, Brazil. A bullet fired at Michael Nassar's
car flattened one of his tires. Nassar pulled into a gasoline station for
repairs. A professional assassin, firing a gun with a silencer, shot Nassar
and his wife in the head, killing them both instantly. The assailant fled
and was never captured. Nassar was also involved with the Phalange militia
at Sabra and Shatilla. Nassar was also reportedly willing to testify against
Sharon in Belgium, as a nephew of SLA Commander General Antoine Lahd,
may have had important evidence to bolster Hobeika's charge that Sharon
ordered SLA forces into the camps to wipe out the Palestinians.
But further detailed Investigations proved that the HIT on Nassar was
only a Diversion ordered by CIA and carried out by Ghassan Touma , Ragi
Abdo, Alias "Al-Capitaine" - Naji Najjar & their Killers in Brazil... and
elsewhere! More Later... on a related topic and Robert Nassar ???

Based on what European intelligence claims is concrete intelligence on
Rove's involvement in the assassination of Hobeika, the Bush administration
can now add political assassination to its laundry list of other misdeeds,
from lying about the reasons to go to war to the torture tactics in
violation of the Geneva Conventions that have been employed by the Pentagon
and "third country" nationals at prisons in Iraq , Guantanamo Bay,
Morocco, and various East European locations, among others....

It is noteworthy that the State Department's list of global terrorist
incidents for 2002 worldwide failed to list the car bombing attack on
Hobeika and his party.... But Listed a small Hand Grenade thrown at a
U.S. franchise in the middle of the night when the place was closed, empty
and no one was hurt? The White House wanted to ensure the terror attack
on Mr. Elie Hobeika, and his party of three young men with families, was
censored from the report. The reason was simple: this attack ultimately had
Washington's and Israel's fingerprints all over it....

Both Israel and SYRIA are Murderous KILLERS , and they are BOTH the Protégés of the USA... they are still playing enemies, while they all work the assassinations in Lebanon a la queue le leu... Stop kidding yourselves.

القضـاء العـسكري قـضاء خاص له قـواعده ونظمـه المنصـوص عنها في القانـون رقـم 24/68 الصادر في 13/4/68, أي “قانون القضاء العسكري” (إخـتصاره “ق. ق. ع.”), وهو القانـون الذي يُعـنى أولا ً بتحديد وتنـظيم المحاكـم العسكرية, بما في ذلك الصلاحيات والأصول المتـبعة أمامـها, ويعنى ثانياً بتحـديد العقوبات والجرائم العـسكرية. ولكن تخصـيص القضاء العسـكري بقـواعـد خاصـة لا ينـفي رجوعــه في أكـثر من مـسألة الى قـانون أصول المحاكمات الجزائية والى قانون العـقوبات العـامة؛ فالمحـكمـة العـسكرية تُطبّق قواعد أصول المحاكمـات الجـزائية في كلّ ما لا يتعارض مع أحكام ق. ق. ع., وتطـبق في الجـنايات والجنح العادية (أي تلك المنصوص عنها في قانـون العـقوبات العـام) المحـالة أمامها بحسب قواعد الإختصاص, العـقوبات الأصلية والإضافية والفرعية المنصوص عنها في قانـون العـقوبات؛ مع العـلم أنهـا, وبالنسـبة للعسكريين الذين يرتكـبون هـكذا جـرائم, تُطــبق بحقـهم, إضافـة الى هـذه العـقـوبات, العقـوبـات الفرعـية المنصـوص عنها في ق. ق. ع. وهي التجريد العسكري والعزل وفقـدان الرتبة والطرد... الى ما هنالك من الحالات التي تستـدعي رجـوع المحكمـة العسـكرية الى أحـكام القانون العـادي, أي قانون أصـول المحاكـمات الجزائـية وقانـون العـقوبات العـام.
متى تكـون المحكمة العسكرية صالحة للنظر بالدعوى؟ وما هي الجرائم العسكرية؟

ممَ يتألف القضاء العسكري؟

يتألف القضاء العسكري من:
- ­ محكمة تمييز عسكرية, مركزها بيروت.
- ­ محكمة عسكرية دائمة, مركزها بيروت.
- ­ قضاة منفردين عسكريين في المحافظات, تحدد مراكزهم بقرار من وزير الدفاع بناءً على اقتراح السلطة العسكرية العليا.
- ­ مفوّض حكومة ومعاونيه.
- ­ قضاة تحقيق.
يُعطى وزير الدفاع الوطني تجاه المحاكم العسكرية جميع الصلاحيات المعطاة لوزير العدل تجاه المحاكم العدلية, في كل ما لا يتنافى وأحكام ق. ق. ع. في زمن الحرب, يمكن إنشاء محاكم عسكرية مؤقتة خاصة بالقوى المسلحة, وذلك بموجب مرسوم.

أهم أحكام الصلاحية

ينص ق. ق. ع. على صلاحية المحكمة العسكرية من الناحية الإقليمية, النوعية والشخصية, وفقاً لما يلي:
إقليمياً, تشمل صلاحية المحكمة العسكرية الدائمة جميع الأراضي اللبنانية والأراضي الأجنبية التي يحتلها الجيش اللبناني, باستثناء المناطق التي تشملها صلاحية المحكمة العسكرية المؤقتة الخاصة بالقوات المسلحة.
أما لناحية الصلاحية النوعية, فتختص المحكمة العسكرية بالنظر في:
- ­ الجرائم العسكرية المنصوص عنها في ق. ق. ع. وهي التخلّف والفرار والتسليم والخيانة والمؤامرة العسكرية والتجسس والتمرّد والعصيان... وغيرها.
- ­ جرائم الخيانة والتجسس والصلات غير المشروعة بالعدو المنصوص عنها في قانون العقوبات العام, وفي القوانين الخاصة التي تعاقب على هذه الجرائم.
- ­ الجرائم المتعلقة بالأسلحة والذخائر الحربية المنصوص عنها في قانون الأسلحة, وذلك ضمن الشروط المحددة قانوناً.
- ­ الجرائم المرتكبة في المعسكرات وفي المؤسسات والثكنات العسكرية.
- ­ الجرائم الواقعة على شخص أحد العسكريين, باستثناء تلك التي تقع على شخص أحد المجندين ولا تتعلّق بالوظيفة.
- ­ الجرائم الواقعة على شخص أحد رجال قوى الأمن الداخلي والأمن العام.
- ­ الجرائم الواقعة على الموظفين المدنيين في وزارة الدفاع الوطني والمحاكم العسكرية, أو لدى الجيش وقوى الأمن الداخلي والأمن العام, إذا كانت لهذه الجرائم علاقة بالوظيفة.
- ­ جميع الجرائم, مهما كان نوعها, التي تمس مصلحة الجيش أو قوى الأمن الداخلي أو الأمن العام.
- ­ الجرائم الواقعة على شخص أحد رجال الجيوش الأجنبية أو التي تمس بمصلحتها, ما لم يكن هناك إتفاق مخالف على تحديد الصلاحية بين الحكومة اللبنانية والسلطة التابعة لها هذه الجيوش.
ولجهة الصلاحية الشخصية للمحكمة العسكرية, فينص القانون على أن يحاكم أمام هذه المحكمة, أياً كانت جنسيتهم, وأياً كان نوع الجريمة المسندة إليهم:
­ العسكريون والمماثلون للعسكريين, باستثناء المجندين عند ارتكابهم جرائم لا علاقة لها بالوظيفة.
- ­ رجال قوى الأمن الداخلي والأمن العام.
- ­ الأسرى.
- ­ رجال قوى الجيوش الأجنبية والموظفون المدنيون فيها, ما لم يكن هناك إتفاق مخالف على الصلاحية بهذا الشأن بين الحكومة اللبنانية والسلطات التابعة لها هذه الجيوش الأجنبية.
- ­ الموظفون المدنيون لدى وزارة الدفاع الوطني والجيش والمحاكم العسكرية أو قوى الأمن الداخلي أو الأمن العام, إذا كانت جرائمهم ناشئة عن الوظيفة أو واقعة تحت طائلة ق. ق. ع.
- ­ كل فاعل أصلي أو شريك أو متدخل أو محرّض في جريمة مُحال بها أمام القضاء العسكري أحد الأشخاص المذكورين أعلاه.
إشارة الى أنه بتاريخ 30/6/77, صدر المرسوم الإشتراعي رقم 110 المتعلّق بتحديد صلاحية القضاء العسكري في الجرائم الواقعة على رجال قوى الأمن الداخلي والأمن العام والموظفين المدنيين التابعين لقوى الأمن الداخلي والأمن العام, وقد تمّ تعديله جزئياً عام 1992.
من المهم جداً لفت الإنتباه الى أن صلاحية المحكمة العسكرية, من أية درجة كانت, تنحصر بدعوى الحق العام (وهي الدعوى التي ترمي الى توقيع العقوبة بالمجرم), من دون دعوى الحق الشخصي (وهي الدعوى الرامية الى الحصول على التعويض وغير ذلك). ولا يجوز الإستماع الى الشاكي المتضرر إلا على سبيل المعلومات. تُقام دعوى الحق الشخصي أمام المحكمة المدنية الصالحة, ولكن يتوقف صدور الحكم فيها الى أن تفصل دعوى الحق العام نهائياً.
إذا لوحق شخص في آن واحد بجرم من صلاحية المحكمة العسكرية وبآخر من صلاحية المحاكم العادية, فإنه يحاكم مبدئياً بكل جرم على حدة من قبل القضاء الصالح. وعلى المحكمة التي تنظر بعد الأولى بالجرم الذي هو من صلاحيتها, أن تبت عند الإقتضاء بجميع العقوبات أو بإدغامها (والإدغام يعني تنفيذ العقوبة المحكوم بها الأشد من دون سواها).
أما إذا كان الجرم من نوع الجناية وكان من صلاحية المحكمة العسكرية, فإنها تنظر تبعاً للجناية بسائر الجرائم المتلازمة معها.
وفي حال كان الجرم من صلاحية القضاء العادي, وكان ثمة جرم سلاح حربي متلازماً معه, فإن القضاء العادي ينظر بالجرمين معاً.

الجرائم العسكرية

الجرائم العسكرية هي الجرائم المحددة حصراً في الباب الثاني من الكتاب الثالث من ق. ق. ع., وهي تندرج ضمن أربع فئات:
- ­ جرائم التملّص من الواجبات العسكرية: التخلّف, الفرار والتشويه الذاتي.
- ­ الجرائم المُخلة بالشرف والواجب: التسليم, الخيانة والمؤامرة العسكرية والتجسس, السلب والإتلاف, التدمير, التزوير والغش, السرقة والإختلاس, وإنتحال الألبسة والأوسمة والشارات.
- ­ الجرائم المخلة بالإنضباط العسكري: التمرّد, العصيان, رفض الطاعة, التحقير وأعمال الشدة الواقعة على الرؤساء, إساءة إستعمال السلطة, ومخالفة التعليمات العسكرية.
- ­ جرائم رجال سلاحي الجو والبحرية.
في ما يلي شرح لكل من هذه الجرائم وللعقوبات الملازمة لها, ولكن لا بد قبل ذلك من توضيح الأمور التالية:
- ­ بالنسبة للجرائم العسكرية التي خُصصت (في ق. ق. ع.) بالعسكريين فقط, والتي يمكن أن يرتكبها أشخاص مدنيون, تسري أحكام هذا القانون على هؤلاء المدنيين, على أنه يمكن تخفيض العقوبة وفقاً لأسس معينة نصّ عليها القانون نفسه.
- ­ إنّ كل الأحكام التالي ذكرها تُطبّق على قوى الأمن الداخلي والأمن العام وأمن الدولة وسائر المماثلين للعسكريين, كما تطبق على العسكريين التابعين للجيوش الحليفة (وذلك عندما تكون المحكمة العسكرية اللبنانية صالحة للنظر بالدعوى).
- ­ إن العقاب المفروض على الضابط لارتكابه أياً من الجرائم العسكرية هو في غالب الأحيان أشد من العقوبات المفروضة على العسكري الذي يرتكب الجرم نفسه, وغالباً ما تُفرض على الضابط عقوبة العزل.

جرائم التملّص من الواجبات العسكرية

- التخلّف:
يعد متخلفاً ويعاقب بالحبس كل شخص يُدعى للخدمة في الجيش أو للتدريب العسكري (بما في ذلك خدمة العلم) وفقاً للقوانين والأنظمة, ولا يلبي الدعوة بعد إنقضاء تسعة أيام في زمن السلم وثلاثة أيام في زمن الحرب, ولا تحول هذه العقوبة دون فرض العقوبات المسلكية المنصوص عليها في قانون الجيش وقانون الخدمة في الجيش وقانون التدريب العسكري وسائر القوانين العسكرية.
من جهة أخرى, تُطبق هذه العقوبات على كل من تفرض عليه تكاليف عسكرية ولا يتقيد بها.
- الفرار:
- الفرار داخل البلاد: في زمن السلم, يعدّ فاراً الى داخل البلاد:
- ­ كل عسكري غاب عن قطعته أو شرذمته, بدون إذن أو عذر شرعي, بعد إنقضاء ستة أيام.
-­ كلّ عسكري سافر من قطعة الى قطعة أو من نقطة الى نقطة, وانتهت رخصته (في حال كان مأذوناً مثلاً أو في مهمة رسمية), ولم يعد الى قطعته أو شرذمته بعد انقضاء تسعة أيام من التاريخ المحدد لعودته.
-­ العسكري الذي لم تمض على وجوده في الخدمة ثلاثة أشهر, وانقضى على غيابه 30 يوماً.
يعاقب على الفرار داخل البلاد بالحبس.
أما في زمن الحرب, فتخفض المدد المذكورة (ستة أيام, تسعة أيام, وثلاثين يوماً) الى ثلثها (أي يومين, ثلاثة أيام, وعشرة أيام), وتضاعف العقوبة, نظراً لخطورة الوضع.
في حال حصول الفرار الى العدو أو أمامه أو بمؤامرة, لا يعتدّ بالمدد المذكورة, بمعنى أن الجرم يعتبر واقعاً, وإن لم تنقض المدة المحددة قانوناً (مثلاً مدة اليومين في حال غياب العسكري عن قطعته بدون إذن أو عذر شرعي, في زمن الحرب... الخ). في كل هذه الحالات, تكون العقوبة أشد من تلك المفروضة في الأحوال العادية, وتصل الى الإعدام في البعض منها.
إشارة الى أنه يعد فراراً أمام العدو, الفرار الذي يُقدم عليه العسكري وهو في حالة إشتباك مع العدو, أو على وشك الإشتباك معه, أو بينما كان عرضة لهجماته. ويعد فراراً بمؤامرة, الفرار الحاصل من عسكريين إثنين أو أكثر, بعد إتفاقهم عليه, حتى ولو استسلموا أو قُبض عليهم قبل إنقضاء المدة المحددة قانوناً (كما ذكرنا).
- الفرار الى خارج البلاد: في زمن السلم, يعد فاراً الى خارج البلاد كل عسكري يجتاز الحدود اللبنانية بدون إذن, أو يترك قطعته ويلتحق ببلاد أجنبية, وذلك بعد انقضاء ثلاثة أيام على غيابه بدون عذر شرعي. أما في زمن الحرب, فيعدّ فاراً بعد غياب يوم واحد.
يعاقب العسكري الفار الى خارج البلاد بالسجن؛ واذا كان الفار ضابطاً, فيعاقب بالإعتقال المؤقت. إشارة الى أن العقوبة المفروضة قانوناً في حالة الفرار الى الخارج هي دائماً أشد من تلك المفروضة في حالة الفرار الى الداخل, وتلك المطبقة في زمن الحرب أشد من تلك المطبقة في زمن السلم.
- التشوية الذاتي:
كلّ عسكري جعل نفسه غير صالح للخدمة مؤقتاً أو مؤبداً ليتهرب من واجباته العسكرية أو من أي مهمة أو عمل مشروعين كلّف بهما, يعاقب بالحبس. تصل عقوبة جرم التشويه الذاتي الى حدّها الأقصى, أي الى الإعدام, وذلك إذا حصل الجرم أمام العدو.
إذا أقدم أحد العسكريين على التدخل في هذا الجرم (أي على مساعدة الفاعل في إرتكابه), عوقب بعقوبة الفاعل. أما إذا كان المتدخل من الأطباء أو الصيادلة أو الممرضين, ضوعفت العقوبة, وأضيفت إليها الغرامة وتسحب رخصة مزاولة المهنة لمدة معينة.
تُطبق هذه الأحكام أيضاً على المدعوين الى خدمة العلم.

الجرائم المخلة بالشرف والواجب

- التسليم:
يعد مرتكباً لجرم التسليم كل قائد منطقة أو قطاع عسكري أو قطعة عسكرية, برية, بحرية أو جوية, يقدم على التسليم للعدو أو على إعطاء الأمر بوقف القتال, من دون أن يستنفد كلّ وسائل الدفاع التي تحت تصرّفه, أو من دون أن يعمل كل ما يفرضه الشرف والواجب.
كذلك الأمر إذا إستنكف (امتنع), وهو قادر عن مهاجمة العدو أو مقاتلته أو تأخر عن مساعدة أية قطعة عسكرية تابعة للجيش اللبناني أو الجيوش الحليفة, ما لم يكن المانع أوامر عسكرية مخالفة أو أسباباً أخرى خطيرة.
عقوبة التسليم هي إما الإعدام أو الأشغال الشاقة, وفقاً للحالة.
- الخيانة والمؤامرة العسكرية والتجسس:
يعاقب بالإعدام كل عسكري, لبناني أو في خدمة لبنان, يحمل السلاح على لبنان.
يعاقب بالإعدام أو بالأشغال الشاقة أو الإعتقال, وفقاً لظروف الجرم, كلّ عسكري من القوات البرية أو البحرية أو الجوية:
- ­ يحرّض على الفرار أو يحول دون التألّب بوجه العدو.
- ­ يُقدم بدون أمر من الرؤساء على التحريض على وقف القتال, أو على الإستسلام, أو على الإنضمام الى العدو.
- ­ يتسبب قصداً باستيلاء العدو على القطع الحربية الموضوعة تحت إمرته.
- ­ يقيم علاقات مع العدو بغية تسهيل أعماله.
يُعاقب بالإعدام أو بالإعتقال, وفقاً لظروف الجرم, كل شخص أُدين بمؤامرة تستهدف النيل من سلطة القائد أو من إنضباط الجنود أو أمنهم.
يُعاقب بالإعتقال كلّ عسكري يغتصب قيادة أو يحتفظ بها بدون سبب مشروع أو خلافاً لأوامر الرؤساء. ويُعاقب بالحبس كل عسكري, لبناني أو في خدمة لبنان, وقع في قبضة العدو, وتعهد لإطلاق سراحه بأن لا يحمل السلاح ضد العدو.
يُعاقب بالإعدام كل أسير أخذ من جديد وقد نقض العهد وحمل السلاح ضد لبنان.
يعد جاسوساً ويعاقب بالإعدام:
- ­ كل عسكري يدخل الى موقع حربي أو الى مركز عسكري أو مؤسسة عسكرية أو أي موقع آخر من مواقع الجيش للحصول على وثائق أو معلومات تعود بالمنفعة على العدو أو تمس بسلامة هذه الأمكنة.
- ­ كل عسكري يعطي العدو وثائق أو معلومات من شأنها أن تؤثر في الأعمال العسكرية.
- ­ كل عسكري يخبئ, بنفسه أو بواسطة الغير, وهو على بيّنة من الأمر, جواسيس الأعداء.
يُعاقب بالإعدام كل عسكري يسلّم العدو الجند الذين هم تحت إمرته أو الموقع الموكول إليه الدفاع عنه, أو يسلّمه مؤن الجيش أو خرائط المواقع الحربية أو المعامل أو المرافئ أو الأحواض, أو يبوح له بكلمة السر أو بأي من أسرار الأعمال العسكرية.
- السلب والإتلاف:
-­ العسكريون الذين يقدمون, وهم عصبة, على سلب أو إتلاف الغلال أو البضائع أو سائر الأشياء والأمتعة التي تخصّ الجيش, باستخدام السلاح أو القوة, أو بخلع أو كسر الأبواب أو الحواجز, أو باستعمال العنف على الأشخاص, أو بأية وسيلة أخرى.
- ­ كل عسكري يقدم قصداً على إتلاف أو تمزيق السجلات أو سائر الأوراق الرسمية العائدة للسلطة العسكرية.
- ­ كل شخص, عسكري أو مدني, يُقدم في منطقة عمليات حربية على سلب جريح أو مريض أو غريق أو ميت.
عقوبة كل من السلب والإتلاف تتدرج من الإعتقال الى الأشغال الشاقة, وفقاً للحالة, حتى أنها تصل الى الإعدام في بعض حالات السلب.
- التدمير:
يُعاقب بالحبس كل عسكري يتسبب بإهماله بالتدمير أو الضياع أو التعطيل الدائم أو المؤقت, الواقع على بناء أو متراس أو تحصين أو أي قطعة برية أو بحرية أو جوية, أو أي منشآت أو إنشاءات تستخدمها القوات المسلحة أو تسهم في الدفاع الوطني, أو أوراق رسمية عائدة للسلطة العسكرية.
عقوبة جرم التدمير هي مبدئياً الحبس؛ ولكن في بعض الحالات المحددة, ينص القانون على أن يعاقب على الفعل بالأشغال الشاقة, أو حتى بالإعدام؛ وفي حالات أخرى, ينص على تطبيق الأسباب المشددة.
- التزوير والغش:
يُعاقب بالحبس:
- ­ كل عسكري أوكلت إليه شؤون المحاسبة, سواء تناولت النقود أم سائر المواد, وارتكب تزويراً في الحساب أو استعمل أوراقاً مزورة, مع علمه بأمرها ­ وهذا ما يسمى بـ”بالتزوير”.
- ­ كلّ عسكري أقدم, بالذات أو بواسطة الغير على غش المواد الموكول إليه حفظها أو حراستها أو أقدم على توزيعها, وكلّ عسكري أقدم, بالذات أو بواسطة الغير, على توزيع لحوم يعرف أنها لحوم حيوانات مصابة بأمراض معدية ­ وهذا ما يسمى بـ”الغش”.
- السرقة والإختلاس:
يتعرض للعقاب كل عسكري أو موظف لدى الجيش يسرق الأموال أو الأعتدة أو الأجهزة أو الألبسة أو الأسلحة أو الذخائر أو الحيوانات أو أي شيء من أشياء الجيش, أو يختلسها أو يبيعها أو يرهنها أو يبددها أو يُسيء الأمانة بها, أو لا يُعيد ما سُلّم إليه من هذه الأشياء. والعقوبة هي الحبس في الأحوال العادية والإعتقال المؤقت في حال وقع الفعل ممّن أوكل إليهم أمر حفظ هذه الأشياء أو حراستها.
أما إذا أقدم شخص من غير الأشخاص المذكورين أعلاه على سرقة هذه الأشياء, وهو عالم بالأمر, عوقب بالحبس وبالغرامة أو بإحداهما.
يُعاقب كذلك بالحبس أو بالإعتقال المؤقت (وفقاً للحالة) كلّ عسكري فارّ لم يُحكم عليه بجرم الفرار أو بريء منه, إذا لم يُرجع الحيوانات أو الأسلحة أو أي شيء من أشياء الجيش التي أخذها عند فراره, أو لم يدفع ضعفي قيمتها إذا تعذرت إعادتها عيناً (أي بذاتها).
- إنتحال الألبسة والأوسمة والشارات:
يعاقب بالحبس:
- ­ كل شخص يقدم, علانية, وبدون حق, على إنتحال صفة أو رتبة عسكرية أو على حمل وسام أو رصيعة أو شارة من الأوسمة أو الرصائع أو الشارات العسكرية اللبنانية, أو على إرتداء زي أو لباس عسكري.

- ­ أخذ الأسلحة بدون إذن, والعمل خلافاً لأوامر رؤسائهم.
- ­ القيام بأعمال عنف مع إستعمال السلاح, وعدم تلبية نداء رؤسائهم للتفرّق والعودة الى النظام.
يعاقب العسكريون المتمردون مبدئياً بالسجن, ولكن العقوبة ترتفع الى الأشغال الشاقة في حالات معينة منصوص عنها قانوناً, والى الإعتقال أو الإعدام في حالات أخرى ­ وينص القانون على إعمال الأسباب المشددة إذا توافرت ظروف معينة.
- العصيان:
يُعدّ عصياناً كل هجوم أو مقاومة بالعنف أو أعمال الشدة يرتكبها عسكري ضد أفراد القوات المسلحة أو رجال السلطة.
يُعاقب على العصيان مبدئياً بالحبس, إلا أن العقوبة تصبح أشغالاً شاقة إذا ارتكب العسكري الجرم, وهو مسلّح, ضدّ خفير أو مراقب أو أي عسكري أو مُنتدب لعمل معيّن, بقصد منعه من القيام بالمهمة الموكولة إليه.
- رفض الطاعة:
يُعاقب بالسجن كل عسكري يرفض إطاعة رؤسائه أو تنفيذ الأوامر التي يتلقاها, ما لم تحل دون ذلك قوة قاهرة. وتصل العقوبة الى الإعتقال في حالات معينة والى الإعدام في حالات أخرى. وينص القانون على إعمال الأسباب المشددة إذا ما توفّرت ظروف معينة.

­ كلّ من يقدم على نشر أو إبلاغ أو إفشاء كلّ ما يتعلّق بالجيش أو بالحوادث العسكرية داخل الثكنات أو خارجها, أو بالإجراءات التي تتخذها السلطة العسكرية بحقّ أحد أفرادها, أو الأوامر أو القرارات الصادرة عن هذه السلطة, وكلّ ما يتعلق بتنقلات الوحدات والمفارز وبالترقيات وبالتشكيلات وبتوقيف المشبوهين وبتعقّب المتمردين أو بالعمليات التي تقوم بها قوى الدولة, ويُستثنى من ذلك التبليغات والإذاعات التي تسمح بنشرها السلطة المختصة.
إشارة الى أن أحكام الفقرتين الأخيرتين لا تُطبّق على المطبوعات المعيّنة بالقانون رقم 2/71 الصادر بتاريخ 22/1/1971 الذي حصر حق النظر بجرائم المطبوعات كافة بالمحاكم المنصوص عنها في المادة 67 من قانون المطبوعات.
- إساءة إستعمال السلطة:

Take 2: Sneak preview....= SCOOP Worldwide HUMINT...

Works for Hewlett Packard ....
This "xxxx" also said "falsely" since he says the contrary further down..., he was not as concerned as long as xxxxxxxx however things got critical after
Al Watan piece came out.... in 04.

The call from "xxxx" came in from a "714" area code -- although he said he was calling from Lebanon -- my caller ID indicated he first called at around 3:00 am (I woke up answered but there was a hang up). He phoned back about 9:30 am and Caller ID said it was the same 714 number.

714 is Orange County, California.

Once worked for Arkansas Systems - Little Rock (that company was linked to the theft of a software program from Inslaw called PROMIS, which also involved disinformation specialist Ari Ben Menashe). Danny Casolaro was investigating that story when he committed "suicide" when meeting a "source."
I think his reference to Arkansas Systems and John Chamberlin was code to confirm something.... If he's involved in financial monitoring Beirut is still one of the key places....more in time...
He mentioned if I knew Bill Chamberlain, Assn of National Security Alumni principal and founder of Arkansas Systems, now head of iKobo Systems.
He said explosion that killed EH not that sophisticated..... so he knows IEDs.... was there instantly after the explosion, obviously ..... CIA/MOSSAD.
Caller ID indicated call came in from Orange County (714 area code). But he said he was calling from Beirut. Possibly a cell phone from California.......or
Lang...ley or proxy routers......

I did a reverse number look up on xxxx's Orange County, CA number.

what I found out is that 714 391 5*** is allotted to Nextel Boost Investment Inc.,Anaheim, CA a cell phone provider. The first call at 3 am was just to see if mine was a working number. The actual call when he spoke came around 9 am. The guy mentioned Arkansas Systems (said he worked for them). They were tied up with ALLTEL/Systematics/Jackson Stephens etc. PROMIS also. and Ben Menashe. xxx had a Canadian accent -- Israeli art students arrested in Ottawa, etc. said they had a controller who lived in US? Canadian-Israeli dual citizens also mentioned in DEA report.

From the DEA report in Israeli art students prior to 911:

43. AMDOCS is an Israeli communications software company, based in the U.S. at 1390 Timberlake Manor Parkway, Chesterfield (St. Louis), MO 63017-6041, telephone number 314-821-3242. AMDOCS is traded on the NYSE under DOX. On April 17, 2001, AMDOCS released a statement that he had signed a five-year outsourcing agreement with BellSouth. AMDOCS also lists an address of #1 Bell Plaza, St. Louis, Mo, which is the address for Bell South.

Dear Mr. xxxxx,

After reading through your e-mail sent to Mr. xxxxxxx, I am a bit confused
over your request to have an article removed on the basis the name xxxxx
is mentioned. After reading, and re-reading the article, only the name
xxxxxx is referenced and not the name xxxx xxxxxx. It is quite
understandable that you would feel endangered to some capacity, but
requesting the removal of the article will not happen and here are my
justifications for it....

One, this information is already cached via too many sources, do a search
on Google, and you will see that even if I did remove the article in
question, anyone can still read the content. Secondly, jumping out of left
field about an article that contains the name xxxxxx begs further
questioning now that you've sought to have the content removed. In your
email you state you did not later emerge in xxxxxx, have no ties to
etc., etc., etc., yet the article again in question only refers to a
xxxx, not xxxx xxxx, not Mr. xxx, nor xxxx xx, solely xxxxx, which
again begs one to question a bit differently now that you've thrown
yourself out in the loop by requesting the article be removed. Lastly:

For someone who's in the middle east, you sure have an odd way of showing
this. Unless of course DEC decided to allow anonymous proxies within their
network, being you emailed me from this address...

In interest of fairness, I will however give you the chance to restate
your reasons for wanting the article removed, but I take a strong stance
on "filtering", "washing down", "scrubbing", information from my website.
Threats will also get you nowhere, in fact, will only get the threat
posted which would look much worse to you than it would to me. I did not
write the article to begin with, and only reposted what was written by Mr.
Madsen who served in the National Security Agency of the United States.
Should I see some form of retraction based on information from him I will
gladly remove the article, but based on your email, it means little to me
other than perhaps someone trying to hide something for one reason or

In essence, asking me to remove something, not knowing whether I will post
this message you sent in its entirety brings up a bigger dilemma. For
those in the know, if you are who you say you are, not the right age, not
the right person, then you should have nothing to fear, on the other hand
jumping out and giving people your last name when none was ever posted
places you in a precarious position..... Obviously, this name that you are
giving here is your "official Cover" but not your real name for sure.....

Hi xxxxx,

This is for your eyes only! I received this "xxxx's" email just when you announced you were leaving xxxx and people were not to write to you at this address, so I didn't forward it to you with my take on it. This is the second time this year someone has made what I consider spurious claims. This one is more so, because nowhere in the article is a last name for the xxxx you referred to. How many xxxx are there in this world?

I am beginning to wonder if these claims aren't being orchestrated to shut us up. The first one came from a London solicitor claiming to represent Sheikh bin Mahfouz, demanding the removal of an article and a retraction/apology. When I pressed them for a signed and witnessed affidavit that they truly represented Mahfouz, I got instead a bunch of musty photocopies in a large white envelope, with no return address -- the same crap they sent me as email attachments. I heard nothing further directly from them. Then they went after the reporter who wrote the article and who happens to be in the UK. Aware of the UK's rotten libel laws, I removed the article at the reporter's request. Soon after that they went after Scoop and Chossudovsky. Scoop folded and I am not sure what Michel decided to do, because he, too, was leery of the whole thing.....

Bottom line: While I don't intimidate, I don't wish to cause anyone grief. So I will defer to whatever you think we should do. One thing that these people never consider, though, is that these articles are cited and/or lifted by other sites and cached by Google, and there ain't nuttin' we can do about that.ever...More in time....
حريق من الخارجية

This is ONE more reason for the neocons energy MATRIX.

Previous examinations of the Lebanese offshore have indicated a potential for oil and gas reserves.

The Lebanese Ministry of Energy and Water has been in negotiations with a foreign company - believed to be the Norway-based Petroleum “Geo-Services” – in preparation for conducting an advanced study of potential offshore oil and gas reserves.

The focused study is a three-dimensional (3D) examination, which uses computer modelling to develop images of the seafloor which detail exactly where to drill for oil and gas. The cost is estimated to be around USD 1.5 mn and should be covered by the company. The study will then be marketed to interested oil-companies.

Oil majors Shell, Occidental, Total Elf Fina, Petrocanada Amerada Hess, and Reading & Bates have purchased two-dimensional studies of Lebanon's offshore regions and have expressed interest in exploring for oil and gas.


Israeli Invasion of Lebanon, 2006
Causes of the attack
April 6, 2007
Note: On a business trip to Moscow for a conference with my publishers, I stopped in Paris for four days for business, research and sightseeing.
During that time, one of my French friends in their Foreign Office gave me a copy of an official report and summary of the causes, actions and losses of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 2006. This document runs to over three hundred pages and is complete with charts, graphs and many photographs. Here is a translation and condensation of that report for your interest. Brian Harring

Subject: Causes of the attack

Both the State of Israel and the United States viewed Syria as a potentially dangerous enemy. Joint intelligence indicated that Syria was a strong supporter of the Hezbollah Shiite paramilitary group. Israel had planned a punitive military operation into Lebanon both to clip Hezbollah’s wings and send a strong message to Syria to cease and desist supplying arms and money to the anti-Israel group. Because of its involvement in Iraq, the United States indicated it would be unable to supply any ground troops but would certainly supply any kind of weapon, to include bombs,
cluster bombs and ammunition for this projected operation. A casus belli was created by the Israeli Mossad’s assassination of Rafik Hariri, a popular Lebanese politician and subsequent disinformation promulgated and instigated by both Israel and the United States blamed Syria for the killing, since Asef Shawkat was in fact the Israeli/OSP/CIA conduit for this operation, exactly as was the case
in the assassination of Mr. Elie Hobeika in January 24th 2002. These were identical covert operations.

The IDF was being supplied faulty and misleading intelligence information, apparently originating from Russian sources, that gave misinformation about Hezbollah positions and strengths and therefore the initial planning was badly flawed.... INCREDIBLE LIES.....FROM THE ISRAELI - RUSSIAN - OSP WW4 MAFIA CARTEL.










In full concert with the American president, the IDF launched its brutal and murderous attack on July 12, 2006 and continued unabated until the Hezbollah inflicted so many serious casualties on the Israeli forces and also on the civilian population of Israel, that their government frantically demanded that the White House force a cease fire through the United Nations. This was done for Israel on August 14, 2007 and the last act of this murderous and unprovoked assault was when Israel removed their naval blockade of Lebanese ports.

The contrived incident that launched the Israeli attack was an alleged attack by Hezbollah into Israeli territory where they were alleged to have ‘kidnapped” two Israeli soldiers and subsequently launched a rocket attack to cover their retreat.

The conflict killed over six thousand people, most of whom were Lebanese, severely damaged Lebanese infrastructure, displaced 700,000-915,000 Lebanese, and 300,000-500,000 Israelis, and disrupted normal life across all of Lebanon and northern Israel. Even after the ceasefire, much of Southern Lebanon remained uninhabitable due to unexploded cluster bombs. As of 1 December 2006, an estimated 200,000 Lebanese remained internally displaced or refugees

During the campaign Israel's Air Force flew more than 12,000 combat missions, its Navy fired 2,500 shells, and its Army fired over 100,000 shells. Large parts of the Lebanese civilian infrastructure were destroyed, including 400 miles of roads, 73 bridges, and 31 other targets such as Beirut International Airport, ports, water and sewage treatment plants, electrical facilities, 25 fuel stations, 900 commercial structures, up to 350 schools and two hospitals, and 15,000 homes. Some 130,000 more homes were damaged.

Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz ordered commanders to prepare civil defense plans. One million Israelis had to stay near or in bomb shelters or security rooms, with some 250,000 civilians evacuating the north and relocating to other areas of the country.

On 26 July 2006 Israeli forces attacked and destroyed an UN observer post. Described as a nondeliberate attack by Israel, the post was shelled for hours before being bombed. UN forces made repeated calls to alert Israeli forces of the danger to the UN observers, all four of whom were killed. Rescuers were shelled as they attempted to reach the post. According to an e-mail sent earlier by one of the UN observers killed in the attack, there had been numerous occasions on a daily basis where the post had come under fire from both Israeli artillery and bombing. The UN observer reportedly wrote that previous Israeli bombing near the post had not been deliberate targeting, but rather due to "tactical necessity," military jargon which retired Canadian Major General Lewis MacKenzie later interpreted as indicating that Israeli strikes were aimed at Hezbollah targets extremely close to the post.

On 27 July 2006 Hezbollah ambushed the Israeli forces in Bint Jbeil and killed eighteen soldiers. Israel claimed, after this event, that it also inflicted heavy losses on Hezbollah.

On 28 July 2006 Israeli paratroopers killed 5 of Hezbollah's commando elite in Bint Jbeil. In total, the IDF claimed that 80 fighters were killed in the battles at Bint Jbeil. Hezbollah sources, coupled with International Red Cross figures place the Hezbollah total at 7 dead and 129 non-combatant Lebanese civilian deaths.

On 30 July 2006 Israeli airstrikes hit an apartment building in Qana, killing at least 65 civilians, of which 28 were children, with 25 more missing. The airstrike was widely condemned.

On 31 July 2006 the Israeli military and Hezbollah forces engaged Hezbollah in the Battle of Ayta ash-Shab.

On 1 August 2006 Israeli commandos launched Operation Sharp and Smooth and landed in Baalbek and captured five civilians including one bearing the same name as Hezbollah's leader, "Hassan Nasrallah". All of the civilians were released after the ceasefire. Troops landed near Dar al-Himkeh hospital west of Baalbeck as part of a widescale operation in the area.

On 4 August 2006 the IAF attacked a building in the area of al-Qaa around 10 kilometers (six miles) from Hermel in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. Sixty two farm workers, mostly Syrian and Lebanese Kurds, were killed during the airstrike.

On 5 August 2006 Israeli commandos carried out a nighttime raid in Tyre, blowing up a water treatment plant, a small clinic and killing 187 civilians before withdrawing.

On 7 August 2006 the IAF attacked the Shiyyah suburb in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, destroying three apartment buildings in the suburb, killing at least 120 people.

On 11 August 2006 the IAF attacked a convoy of approximately 750 vehicles containing Lebanese police, army, civilians, and one Associated Press journalist, killing at least 40 people and wounding at least 39.

On 12 August 2006 the IDF established its hold in South Lebanon. Over the weekend Israeli forces in southern Lebanon nearly tripled in size. and were ordered to advance towards the Litani River.

On 14 August 2006 the Israeli Air Force reported that they had killed the head of Hezbollah’s Special Forces, whom they identified as Sajed Dewayer,but this claim was never proven.. 80 minutes before the cessation of hostilities, the IDF targeted a Palestinian faction in the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp in Sidon, killing a UNRWA staff member. Sixty two refugees had been killed in an attack on this camp six days prior to the incident.

During the campaign Hezbollah fired between 3,970 and 4,228 rockets. About 95% of these were 122 mm (4.8 in) Katyusha artillery rockets, which carried warheads up to 30 kg (66 lb) and had a range of up to 30 km (19 mi). An estimated 23% of these rockets hit built-up areas, primarily civilian in nature.

Cities hit included Haifa, Hadera, Nazareth, Tiberias, Nahariya, Safed, Afula, Kiryat Shmona, Beit She'an, Karmiel, and Maalot, and dozens of Kibbutzim, Moshavim, and Druze and Arab villages, as well as the northern West Bank. Hezbollah also engaged in guerrilla warfare with the IDF, attacking from well-fortified positions. These attacks by small, well-armed units caused serious problems for the IDF, especially through the use hundreds of sophisticated Russian-made anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). Hezbollah destroyed 38 Israeli Merkava main battle tanks and damaged 82. Fifteen tanks were destroyed by anti-tank mines. Hezbollah caused an additional 65 casualties using ATGMs to collapse buildings onto Israeli troops sheltering inside.

After the initial Israeli response, Hezbollah declared an all-out military alert. Hezbollah was estimated to have 13,000 missiles at the beginning of the conflict. Israeli newspaper Haaretz described Hezbollah as a trained, skilled, well-organized, and highly motivated infantry that was equipped with the cream of modern weaponry from the arsenals of Syria, Iran, Russia, and China. Lebanese satellite TV station Al-Manar reported that the attacks had included a Fajr-3 and a Ra'ad 1, both liquid-fuel missiles developed by Iran.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah defended the attacks, saying that Hezbollah had "started to act calmly, we focused on Israel[i] military bases and we didn’t attack any settlement, however, since the first day, the enemy attacked Lebanese towns and murdered civilians — Hezbollah militants had destroyed military bases, while the Israelis killed civilians and targeted Lebanon's infrastructure." Hezbollah apologized for shedding Muslim blood, and called on the Arabs of the Israeli city of Haifa to flee.

On 13 July 2006 in response to Israel's retaliatory attacks in which 43 civilians were killed, Hezbollah launched rockets at Haifa for the first time, hitting a cable car station along with a few other buildings

On 14 July 2006 Hezbollah attacked the INS Hanit, an Israeli Sa'ar 5-class missile boat enforcing the naval blockade, with a what was believed to be a radar guided C-802 anti-ship missile. 24 sailors were killed and the warship was severely damaged and towed back to port.

On 17 July 2006 Hezbollah hit a railroad repair depot, killing twenty-two workers. Hezbollah claimed that this attack was aimed at a large Israeli fuel storage plant adjacent to the railway facility. Haifa is home to many strategically valuable facilities such as shipyards and oil refineries.

On 18 July 2006 Hezbollah hit a hospital in Safed in northern Galilee, wounding twenty three.

On 27 July 2006 Hezbollah ambushed the Israeli forces in Bint Jbeil and killed forty one soldiers, and destroyed 12 IDF vehicles and destroyed three armored vehicles and seriously damaged eight more. Israel claimed it also inflicted heavy losses on Hezbollah.

On 3 August 2006 Nasrallah warned Israel against hitting Beirut and promised retaliation against Tel Aviv in this case. He also stated that Hezbollah would stop its rocket campaign if Israel ceased aerial and artillery strikes of Lebanese towns and villages.

On 4 August 2006 Israel targeted the southern outskirts of Beirut, and later in the day, Hezbollah launched rockets at the Hadera region.

On 9 August 2006 twenty three Israeli soldiers were killed when the building they were taking cover in was struck by a Hezbollah anti-tank missile and collapsed.

On 12 August 2006 24 Israeli soldiers were killed; the worst Israeli loss in a single day. Out of those 24, five soldiers were killed when Hezbollah shot down an Israeli helicopter, a first for the militia. Hezbollah claimed the helicopter had been attacked with a Wa'ad missile.

One of the most controversial aspects of the conflict has been the high number of civilian deaths. The actual proportion of civilian deaths and the responsibility of it is hotly disputed.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch blamed Israel for systematically failing to distinguish between combatants and civilians, which may constitute a war crime, and accused Hezbollah of committing war crimes by the deliberate and indiscriminate killing of civilians by firing rockets into populated areas

On 24 July 2006, U.N. humanitarian chief Jan Egeland said Israel's response violated international humanitarian law, but also criticized Hezbollah for knowingly putting civilians in harm's way by "cowardly blending...among women and children".During the war, Israeli jets distributed leaflets calling on civilian residents to evacuate or move north.

In response to some of this criticism, Israel has stated that it did, wherever possible, attempt to distinguish between protected persons and combatants, but that due to Hezbollah militants being in civilian clothing (thus committing the war crime of perfidy this was not always possible.

Direct attacks on civilian objects are prohibited under international humanitarian law. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) initially estimated about 35,000 homes and businesses in Lebanon were destroyed by Israel in the conflict, while a quarter of the country's road bridges or overpasses were damaged. Jean Fabre, a UNDP spokesman, estimated that overall economic losses for Lebanon from the month-long conflict between Israel and Hezbollah totaled "at least $15 billion, if not more."] Before and throughout the war, Hezbollah launched over 4000 unguided rockets against Israeli population centers, seeking to terrorize the Israeli population. This was in direct response to Israel’s attack on residential sections and the deliberate targeting of civilians

Amnesty International published a report stating that "the deliberate widespread destruction of apartments, houses, electricity and water services, roads, bridges, factories and ports, in addition to several statements by Israeli officials, suggests a policy of punishing both the Lebanese government and the civilian population," and called for an international investigation of violations of international humanitarian law by both sides in the conflict.

Israel defended itself from such allegations on the grounds that Hezbollah's use of roads and bridges for military purposes made them legitimate targets. However, Amnesty International stated that "the military advantage anticipated from destroying [civilian infrastructure] must be measured against the likely effect on civilians."

Human Rights Watch strongly criticized Israel for using cluster bombs too close to civilians because of their inaccuracy and unreliability, suggesting that they may have gone as far as deliberately targeting civilian areas with such munitions. Hezbollah was also criticized by Human Rights Watch for filling its rockets with ball bearings, which "suggests a desire to maximize harm to civilians"; the U.N has criticized Israel for its use of cluster munitions and disproportionate attacks.

Amnesty International stated that the IDF used white phosphorus shells in Lebanon. Israel later admitted to the use of white phosphorus, but stated that it only used the incendiary against militants. However, several foreign media outlets reported observing and photographing “a large number” of Lebanese civilians with burns characteristic of white phosphorus attacks during the conflict.
Hezbollah casualty figures are difficult to ascertain, with claims and estimates by different groups and individuals ranging from 43 to 1,000. Hezbollah's leadership claims that 43 of their fighters were killed in the conflict, while Israel estimated that its forces had killed 600 Hezbollah fighters. In addition, Israel claimed to have the names of 532 dead Hezbollah fighters but when challenged by Hezbollah to release the list, the Israelis dropped the issue. A UN official estimated that 50 Hezbollah fighters had been killed, and Lebanese government officials estimated that up to 49 had been killed.

The Lebanese civilian death toll is difficult to pinpoint as most published figures do not distinguish between civilians and militants, including those released by the Lebanese government. In addition, Hezbollah fighters can be difficult to identify as many do not wear military uniforms. However, it has been widely reported that the majority of the Lebanese killed were civilians, and UNICEF estimated that 30% of those killed were children under the age of 13

The death toll estimates do not include Lebanese killed since the end of fighting by land mines or unexploded US/Israeli cluster bombs. According to the National Demining Office, 297 people have been killed and 867 wounded in such blasts.

Official Israeli figures for the Israel Defense Forces troops killed range from 116 to 120. The Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs gives two different figures – 117 and 119 – the latter of which contains two IDF fatalities that occurred after the ceasefire went into effect.In September 2006, two local Israeli news papers released insider information ensuring that the Israeli military death toll might climbed to around 540 soldiers. Israel refuses any outside agency access to its lists of the dead and wounded but an examination of all the accurate information available as of January 1, 2007 indicates that Israeli Defense Forces lost a total of 2300 killed with 600 of these dying in military hospital facilities subsequent to the conclusion of the fighting and an additional 700 very seriously wounded.

Hezbollah rockets killed 43 Israeli civilians during the conflict, including four who died of heart attacks during rocket attacks. In addition, 4,262 civilians were injured – 33 seriously, 68 moderately, 1,388 lightly, and 2,773 were treated for shock and anxiety

Last month, (March, 2007) the Israeli comptroller had planned to release an interim report that was expected to accuse the army and Olmert of leaving Israeli civilians virtually defenseless during last summer's Lebanon war, in which Hezbollah guerrillas fired a barrage of rockets and missiles at northern Israel.

Elie Hobeika Eulogie . RIP HK.

Le Liban est un rosier sauvage. Si vous vous approchez des fleurs, gardez-vous des épines. Et si vos mains s'en trouvent lacérées jusqu'au sang, prenez quand même le temps de caresser les fleurs. Je parle de rosiers, ayant à l'esprit cette pratique,répandue en Bourgogne et dans le Bordelais, qui consiste à laisser pousser des rosiers, justement, entête des rangées de vigne. On a constaté, en effet, que cette fleur souffrait avant toute autre des maladies qui s'attaquent aux plantes, et qu'elle pouvait donc servir de sentinelle pour alerter les Vignerons et leur donner le temps de réagir. Mais les hommes ne comprennent pas toujours le message. Certains, par paresse, par ignorance, par aveuglement, lorsqu'ils voient apparaître des taches sur les feuilles, se disent que le rosier est, de toute manière, une plante fragile, délicate, frivole, et que leur vigne ne risque rien. Il y a trente ans, le Liban est entré dans l'une des phases les plus éprouvantes de son histoire. Une société qui voyait dans la diversité sa raison d'être, et dans la liberté d'expression le fondement de la paix civile, venait de sombrer dans la crispation identitaire, les massacres, la peur de l'autre et la destruction de soi. Pendant quelque temps, le pays est apparu comme une exception, affligeante pour ses fils comme pour ses fidèles amis, mais ne suscitant, chez bien des gens, que des jugements détachés et condescendants. Que voulez-vous ?, le rosier est une plante si fragile !Puis les affrontements ethniques et communautaires se sont multipliés à travers le monde. Non seulement au Proche-Orient, en Afrique, ou dans le sud de l'Asie, mais également dans l'ancienne Yougoslavie, aux Premiers contreforts de l'Europe. Et au-delà. Ce qui semblait naguère le triste apanage de quelques banlieues de Beyrouth a aujourd'hui pour théâtre la planète entière, de Manhattan à la Tchétchénie, en passant par Londres, Madrid, et jusqu'à Bali. Crispation, massacres, peur de l'autre et destruction de soi. Il est vrai qu'avec la chute du Mur de Berlin, nous sommes passés d'un monde où les clivages étaient surtout idéologiques à un monde où les clivages sont identitaires. Je n'ai aucune nostalgie pour l'époque de la Guerre froide, qui a causé, au XXe siècle, les drames que l'on sait. Mais elle avait pour caractéristique d'éveiller, en permanence, le débat. Quand les clivages sont identitaires, il n'y a ni débat ni dialogue. Chacun proclame ses appartenances à la face de l'autre, chacun lance ses imprécations puis retentissent rafales et explosions. Le rosier est une plante délicate, me dit-on. Le Liban est une mosaïque de communautés. Qu'on ne s'y trompe pas, il ne s'agit plus seulement du Liban, la Terre entière est une mosaïque de communautés. Ethnies opprimées, religions chatouilleuses, nations Inassouvies, elles sont chaque jour un peu plus apeurées, et tentées par le recours à la violence pour se protéger, pour s'affirmer, ou pour se venger. Si l'humanité d'aujourd'hui se révélait incapable de faire vivre ensemble, dans l'harmonie et dans la dignité, sur le minuscule territoire du Liban, des communautés qui, depuis des siècles, pratiquent la coexistence ou, à tout le moins, le côtoiement, comment diable pourrait-elle gérer l'incommensurable diversité planétaire ? A cette interrogation angoissée, ce début de siècle nous apporte un début de réponse, qui n'a rien de rassurant. Ni pour les pays où cohabitent depuis longtemps des populations mêlées, ni pour ceux qui viennent tout juste de découvrir les contraintes de la diversité. Il suffit de promener son regard sur cette planète déboussolée pour constater que la violence ne recule pas, et que le fossé entre les plus grosses communautés humaines ne fait que s'élargir. Pas un événement majeur qui ne soit vécu, des deux côtés de la faille, et notamment sur les deux rives de la Méditerranée, avec des sentiments opposés. Amis du Liban, ne perdez pas des yeux le rosier sauvage qui a poussé précisément au bord de cette faille ! Si vous voyez s'épanouir, puis triompher, le vaste élan de liberté et de coexistence dont Mr. Elie Hobeika et ses compagnons, Mitri, Waleed, Fares et tant d'autres depuis 1975 ont été les courageux porte-drapeaux, c'est que la vigne des hommes donnera demain des grappes saines. Mais si vous voyez les fleurs trembler, chanceler, puis s'abattre, si vous voyez la pourriture se former à la naissance des feuilles, c'est que la vigne entière est menacée, et que le vin de l'avenir sera aigre....

From a geographical standpoint, the region known as Lebanon indeed was part
of Greater Syria.
But if you study the history, you will discover that the modern State of
Lebanon NEVER was a part of the Syrian Arab Republic. Nor did the the
Government of the Syrian Arab Republic EVER have a legitimate claim of
sovereignty over Lebanon. Lebanese autonomy, recognized by the Ottomans and
European powers in 1861, predates Syrian independence by more than eight
Any claim to the contrary generally expresses Syrian chauvinism, a
hypocritical disrespect for Lebanese self-determination, and wishful
"The significance of this masterpiece is not only the divulsion of facts,
but the focus it's made on the covert cooperation between the parties who
are playing enemies.... "

صبيحة يوم الخميس في الرابع والعشرين من كانون الثاني عام 2002 قرابة الساعة العاشرة ‏صباحا، دوى انفجار هائل هزّ منطقة الحازمية. ارتجت بيروت من هول صوته. وتناثرت اثاره ‏المدمرة... من تل ابيب الى عواصم العالم...‏
لحظة مرعبة تلك... بل مفجعة... خطفت رجلاً ليس كسائر الرجال.‏
في مثل هذا اليوم منذ خمسة اعوام غاب الوزير الياس حبيقة.‏
كنت اناديه، كما جميع اصدقائه، ‏H.K‏ وفي ذكرى اغتياله يعود وجهه كصديق نادر الوفاء. ‏واحزن اشد الحزن على ذاك الشاب المتوقد الذكاء. السريع البديهة. الفريد القدرة على ‏استشراف الابعاد السياسية... على الرجل القوي الذي عمل بزخم واندفاع الجبابرة لخدمة ‏الوطن.‏
رجل قل نظيره. سيد المواقف الحازمة، والقرارات الحاسمة، والعمل المضني، القادر على كسر ‏الحواجز مهما ارتفعت.‏
رجل المهمات الصعبة، والثبات في مواقع النضال. جبل سيرة حياته بالبطولة. ولم يكن يعرف ‏ابدا ان يتراجع عن حق... ولا تخبو قدماه في مواجهة باطل. ولا يرف جفنه في وجه الردى... ‏لذا عاش عمره القصير على حد السيف... وظل سيفاً مصلتاً في وجه اعداء لبنان الحقيقيين.‏
تبعثر الـH.k‏ في سماء الوطن من شدة حبّه وحرصه على هذا الوطن.‏
في ذكرى رحيله يخفق قلبي بحزن اليم، لاني لم اعرف فيه الا الوفاء. كان رحمه الله اوفى الاوفياء. ‏ترتسم الصداقة في عينيه فوق كل الصور. ولم يخذل يوماً انساناً احبه.‏
وينشطر قلبي حين ادرك كم ان الوطن خذله بعد موته.‏
الرئيس الشهيد رفيق الحريري، رحمه الله، كان من اشد المعجبين بالوزير الياس حبيقة. وكان ‏يحبه حباً مميزاً، ويقدر ذكاءه تقديراً عالياً. لذلك جعله عن يمينه. وابقاه المعادلة ‏الثابتة في كل وزارة الفها. وكان الـH.K‏ خير وزير.‏
وبشهادة الرئيس الحريري كان الوزير الياس حبيقة مثال الانضباط والعمل الجاد والدؤوب في ‏خدمة الناس. وتطورت الوزارات التي استلمها تطوراً ملحوظا. واستحق ثناء الرئيس الحريري ‏مرات متتالية في مجلس الوزراء وفي المناسبات العامة.‏
ولكن، وللاسف الشديد، رغم عطائه للوطن... خذله الوطن بعد موته!‏
الوزير الياس حبيقة كان اول الشهداء السياسيين الذين سقطوا في لبنان في القرن الواحد ‏والعشرين.‏
كانت عملية اغتياله نوعية، ومتطورة، بل فريدة من نوعها، واذهلت الخبراء في دقتها ‏وقوتها. هذه الجريمة لا بد ان تكون هي نقطة البداية في البحث عن «الحقيقة» التي ينشدها ‏لبنان ويطالب جميع ابناء الوطن بكشف خيوطها.‏
‏«الحقيقة» تبدأ يوم 24 كانون الثاني 2002، قبل ثلاث سنوات من الاغتيال الاول لان في ‏العودة الى الجذور تنبع المعرفة!‏
‏*‏ ‏*‏ ‏*‏
قرأت في العهد القديم في سفر ذكريا:‏
افتح يا لبنان ابوابك
ولتلتهم النار ارزك
وَلْوِل ايها السرو فان الارز المنيع قد سقط لان العظماء قد دمروه كما دمروا القادة ‏الابرار.‏
‏*‏ ‏*‏ ‏*‏
اليوم نشعر بالبرد، لان ابواب لبنان تشلّعت، وازيز الرياح يهدر من كل صوب، وكأن عاصفة ‏هوجاء تضرب الارجاء وتقتلع شجر السرو من جذوره..‏
الفجوة الاولى في الجدار، التي يتسرب منها الريح، حصلت يوم سقطت يا ‏H.K‏.‏
منذ بعثرت يد الغدر جسدك، لم تتوقف يوماً عن زرع الدمار في ارجاء وطن الارز الجميل. كُنتَ ‏الضحية الاولى، ومن بعدك تساقط الشجر الباسق شر سقوط.‏
منذ 1948، يوم قامت دولة اسرائيل، حملت معها بذور الموت الى وطننا الحبيب. من يومها بدأ ‏تدمير الارز المنيع كما جاء في سفر زكريا.‏
لقد لعن السيد المسيح عميان اليهود. وقال لهم «سوف تتشتتون في الارض كالرمال ولن تجتمعوا ‏تحت سماء واحدة لانكم اشرار».‏
وتشتتوا في الارض حتى قامت دولة اسرائيل. لكنها قامت على العنف والدمار. ونمت على القتل ‏والدماء... واستمرت بقوة الحروب... لانها ملعونة لا تعرف السلام.‏
وكنت يا ‏H.K‏ ايها الصديق العزيز، الضحية الاولى في العصر الجديد، لانك تملك الوثائق التي ‏تدين المجرمين الحقيقيين.‏
كنت تستعد للوقوف امام محكمة العدل في بلجيكا، لتفضح شر الاشرار... وتظهر للعالم اجمع من ‏ارتكب فعلاً مجازر صبرا وشاتيلا... لكن لا احد يريد ان يعرف الحقيقة لانها موجعة وتطال رؤوسا ‏كبيرة.‏
لذلك قتلوك... واعادوا قتلك مرات متتالية عاماً بعد عام.‏
في كل جريمة حصلت بعد رحيلك سقطت انت من جديد.‏
كنت الضحية الى جانب رفيق، وسمير، وجورج، وجبران، وبيار.... وسائر قافلة الشهداء...‏
لكنك ضحية مظلومة في الموت وبعد الموت. واصحاب النفوس الحاقدة ينتزعون منك حق الشهادة ‏فيبقى الغموض يلف حقيقة موتك!‏
لانك سبقتهم الى الشهادة... يوم رحيلك هو بداية الطريق الى الحقيقة.‏
اعاهدك بصدق الوفاء الذي زرعته في نفوس كثيرة:‏
لن نخذلك الى يوم القيامة!‏

الذكرى الخامسة لاغتيال ايلي حبيقة‏ <=January 24th 2002-2007>
القاضي حمود: الملف «مسكّر» ولن يُفتح بانتظار معلومات جديدة
‏«وعد»: من المعيب على السلطة ان تميّز بين شهداء الوطن
جولي نخلة
في الرابع والعشرين من كانون الثاني من العام 2002، قضى الوزير والنائب السابق ايلي ‏حبيقة وثلاثة من مرافقيه في انفجار استهدفه بالقرب من منزله في الحازمية. ومنذ ذلك ‏التاريخ ولغاية اليوم، لا تحقيقات، والملف «مسكّر» في جارور المحقق العدلي القاضي عبد ‏الرحيم حمود وفق ما افاد «الديار» به، ووفق ما تم ابلاغه الى ارملة الراحل رئيسة الحزب ‏الوطني العلماني الديمقراطي «وعد» جينا حبيقة من القاضي نفسه، وذلك في سياق مطالبتها ‏المتكررة في مسيرة بحثها الشائكة عن الحقيقة والتي تبلغ يوم غد عامها الخامس.‏
ورغم ان الوزير حبيقة قضى «في اول جريمة مروعة نوعا وحجما في زمن السلم الاهلي وفي ظلّ ‏دولة الطائف وفي منطقة امنية بامتياز، فان السلطات تناست وتغاضت عن هذه الجريمة، وتبدو ‏في تعاطيها كما السلطات السابقة يوم كان «النظام الامني» مختلفاً، لا بل معاكساً توجهاً ‏وتوجيهاً بحسب ما تعتبر وتؤكد وتشدد مصادر حزب «وعد» الذي لم يجد وسيلة له رغم كل ‏المطالبات والالحاح الدائم لكشف جريمة الاغتيال او حتى للتعاطي معها بقدر من المسؤولية ‏والجدية بما يليق بدولة تحترم امنها وسيادتها ومواطنيها وحرية قرارها».‏
فان الحزب وعائلة الشهيد لم يجدا وسيلة للرد والتذكير «في زمن التعتيم المطبق» سوى ‏اللوحات الاعلانية، فكانت الحملة الدعائية الكبرى التي تحمل صورة الوزير الشهيد ايلي ‏حبيقة وصورة الانفجار مع عبارة تتضمن رسالة سياسية واضحة ومباشرة: «للذاكرة... ‏الحقيقة تبدأ من هنا» وتشير بوضوح الى تاريخ الاستشهاد 24 كانون الثاني 2002. «علها تحرك ‏بعضاً من مسؤولية وضمير لدى المعنيين كافة» ودائما بحسب مصادر «وعد».‏
تضيف مصادر «وعد» اذا كانت بعض الجهات تميّز بين شهداء الوطن لانها لم تستطع الانعتاق من ‏احقادها وترجمة خطابها المعسول شكلا، او الخروج عن اوصيائها واوليائها، فمن المعيب على ‏السلطة ان تميز بين شهداء الوطن، وان تقيم الدنيا ولا تقعدها تجاه حقيقة تحددها وفق ‏بوصلة معينة وفي ازمان ومواقيت محددة.‏
ولان غيظ الـ«وعديين» كبير كما بدا لنا وكذلك حزنهم توجهت «الديار» الى المحقق العدلي في ‏جريمة اغتيال الوزير حبيقة القاضي عبد الرحيم حمود لتسأله مصير الملف المحال اليه منذ ‏سنتين بعدما «نام في ادراج المحكمة العسكرية لسنوات ثلاث وفق ما افادتنا مصادر «وعد».‏
لم نفاجأ بجواب القاضي حمود على سؤالنا الذي انتزعناه انتزاعا، عن الجديد في الملف بعد خمس ‏سنوات: انه «مسكّر»... وصل الملف من المحكمة العسكرية «مسكّر» بأمر من القاضي سعيد ميرزا ‏لعدم معرفة الجهة الفاعلة، ومن حينها ليس من جديد وما في تحقيق.‏
وما اذا كان انتهى التحقيق الى هذا الحد
يجيب: «الملف مغلق بانتظار ان يجد شيء ما بامكانه تحريك الملف، او حصولنا على معلومات ‏جديدة تخص القضية، حينها يعاد فتحه ويستأنف التحقيق».‏
مع استرسالنا في الاسئلة يبادر المحقق العدلي الى سؤالنا نحن عن السبب الذي جعلنا نتذكر ‏الموضوع مستهجنا ذلك، معتبرا ان لدينا معلومات ونحن في حضرته لاستجوابه..‏
وينفي ان يكون الكلام صحيحاً عن احالة كل الجرائم الى المحكمة الدولية، انما فقط التي لها ‏ارتباط بجريمة اغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري، مشيرا الى ان جريمة اغتيال الوزير حبيقة سبقت ‏جريمة اغتيال الرئيس الحريري وقد لا يكون لها ارتباط بها. كمايعتبر ان القضاء قام بعمله، ‏راداً التعتيم على هذه الجريمة الى الاعلام الذي يتحمل مسؤولية ذلك، والى عدم رفع صور ‏الشهيد في التظاهرات كافة.‏
واذا ما عدنا الى عدم الانخراط في التظاهرات ورفع صور الشهيد حبيقة من قبل محازبيه ‏وانصاره، تجيب مصادر «وعد» انهم لم ولن يتاجروا بشهيدهم، ويعتبرون ان شهادته اسمى واقدس ‏من ان تستغل من هذا الجانب او ذاك، او ان توظف في هذا السوق السياسي او الزاروب ‏الانتخابي، ويضيفون: لا بد للعدالة ان تستقيم وللحق ان يتغلب على الباطل، وعندها ‏بالتأكيد سيطال الانصاف اول من يطال ايلي حبيقة.‏
وماذا ستفعلون حتى ذلك الحين الذي لا يبدو بقريب؟ حتى ذلك الحين لن نيأس كما يعتقد البعض ‏ولن نستسلم ونقفل على مسيرة نضالنا الوطني، لاننا صادقون في محبتنا لشهيدنا ورفاقه، ‏ولاننا مؤمنون بخطه ونهجه، ولاننا اوفياء ترانا نكبر يوما بعد يوم، ولا نخفي سرا ان ‏جاهرنا: ان الفضل الكبير والاساس في صمودنا واستمرارنا يعود الى سيدة مختلفة في محبتها ‏وصبرها وصمودها وكبريائها وجرأتها هي السيدة جينا حبيقة ولن نزيد.‏
وعن مدى طوباوية هذا الموقف، ومدى تداخل العاطفة به؟ تجيب المصادر: العاطفة تعيش شهورا ‏او عاما او عامين او حتى ثلاثة اننا اليوم نحي الذكرى الخامسة وكأن الاستشهاد حصل اليوم، ‏وكأن الـ«وعد» ولد اليوم، هذا هو واقعنا وان كنا نعمل بصمت ولا نقرع كما الآخرين ‏الطبول صبح مساء.‏
من هو ايلي حبيقة؟
ابن بسكنتا، ولد في القليعات في 22 ايلول 1956 التحق كما غالبية ابناء جيله ووسطه ‏بمصلحة طلاب الكتائب ولم يتجاوز السادسة عشر، مع بداية احداث عام 1973 بين الجيش ‏اللبناني ومسلحي التنظيمات الفلسطينية، اختير ليكون في عداد فرقة الـ «ب. ج» ‏الكتائبية الخاصة، وهي فرقة النخبة من شباب الحزب، فخضع لتدريبات كافة.‏
في 13 نيسان 1975 مع اندلاع شرارة الحرب التحق ببيت الكتائب المركزي في الصيفي لحمايته من ‏اي اعتداء، ووتوالت الاحداث فقاتل مع رفاقه في الفرقة المذكورة على جبهة الصيفي ‏والاسواق التجارية، لقب «‏HK‏» نسبة الى تسمية بندقية من العيار المتوسط تميز عن سواه ‏باتقان لعبتها. ولانه تمايز عن سواه بقدرة ذهنية وبدنية وقتالية ومع تطور الاحداث ‏اسندت اليه مهام تنظيم المقاتلين فيما كان يشبه الشعبة الثالثة في المجلس الحربي الكتائبي.‏
في العام 1978 ادار الى جانب بشير الجميل حرب المئة يوم في مواجهة الجيش السوري في الاشرفية، ‏كما قاتل وفؤاد ابو ناضر وفادي افرام وآخرين من فرقة الـ «ب. ج» في شكا والكورة في ‏الشمال، مع تأسيس القوات اللبنانية بقيادة بشير الجميل اسندت اليه مهام الشعبة ‏الثالثة في القوات، ومن بعدها تولى رئاسة جهاز الامن والمعلومات ولم يكن يتجاوز في حينها ‏الرابعة والعشرين من عمره، بنى هذا الجهاز بشكل فاعل باعتراف الحلفاء والخصوم، وصنف من ‏قبل بعض مراكز الدراسات والابحاث الغربية ثالثاً في منطقة الشرق الاوسط وكانت التحليلات ‏والمعطيات التي تخرج منه هي الاكثر وثوقا ودقة خضع مع بشير الجميل وآخرين في فرقة الـ «ب. ‏ج» لاختبار الـ «‏IQ‏» اختبار الذكاء فحل اولا بين رفاقه متقدما بنقاط عدة.‏
كان له دور بارز في عملية انتخاب بشير رئيسا للجمهورية من خلال الماكنة الانتخابية التي ‏قادت معركته الرئاسية، بحيث تولى ايلي حبيقة عملية احضار النواب لتأمين النصاب وعقد ‏جلسة الانتخاب.‏
في 12 آذار من العام 1985 قاد مع سمير جعجع وكريم بقرادوني وآخرين من قيادة القوات ‏انتفاضة سلمية على قائد القوات في حينها فؤاد ابو ناضر، رفضا لمحاولات الرئيس امين الجميل ‏فرض نفوذه على قرار القوات، في 9 أيار من العام نفسه وبعد سقوط اقليم الخروب وشرقي ‏صيدا وساحل جزين في يد القوات وتهجير اهلها، قام بما يشبه الحركة الاعتراضية داخل قيادة ‏القوات على ما جرى من هزيمة.‏
ومن باب اعادة توزيع المسؤوليات وتحديدها انتخب رئيسا للهيئة التنفيذية في القوات ‏اللبنانية وامسك بقرارها السياسي، ويومها اذاع بيانا متقدما في طرحه يتضمن خطوطا ‏عريضة لرؤية القوات السياسية ويذكر فيه لمرأة الاولى الى خيار لبنان العربي والى العلاقات ‏المستقبلية مع سوريا وفيه: «اذا ان في فترات سابقة نتطلع الى جهات اقليمية معادية ‏للمحيط العربي فان السبب كان الدفاع عن النفس في وجه الاخطار التي هددت المسيحيين».‏
ويبلغ يومها مكتب الارتباط الاسرائيلي في طبرجا بوجوب اقفاله ويتم ذلك بالفعل بعد اقل ‏من 24 ساعة، كما يأمل في المقابل بإقفال مكتب القوات اللبنانية في اسرائيل ومغادرة ‏العاملين فيه، ويبدأ مفاوضات مع حركة امل بقيادة نبيه بري والحزب التقدمي الاشتراكي ‏بقيادة وليد جنبلاط، وبرعاية سورية يتم التوصل الى توقيع الاتفاق الثلاثي الذي يتضمن ‏وقف الحرب والبدء باصلاحات سياسية كما يتضمن اجراءات لبناء القوى الامنية اللبنانية ‏وحل الميلشيات واعادة المهجرين واعادة التواصل بين اواصل لبنان المنطقة، وهذه البنود ‏وردت بغالبيتها في اتفاق الطائف.‏
ولكن الاتفاق الذي وقع في دمشق لم يعش طويلا، ففي 15 كانون الثاني 1986 يسقط هذا الاتفاق ‏بهجوم عسكري قاده تحالف الرئيس امين الجميل وسمير جعجع وكان الاخير رئيسا للاركان في القوات ‏اللبنانية، وبصراع دموي يخرج ايلي حبيقة من المنطقة الشرقية ومعه الياس المر الذي كان ‏محاصراً معه في مبنى جهاز الامن في الكرنتينا ويخرج بضع مئات من المقاتلين الموالين لحبيقة ومن ‏انصاره تباعا الى باريس وثم الى زحلة هربا من الملاحقة والاضهاد.‏
في 13 تشرين الاول 1990 يعود ومحازبيه بعد ان اسس في ذلك العام الحزب الوطني العلماني ‏الديموقراطي «وعد» الى المنطقة الشرقية مساهماً في مساعدة اهالي المناطق المسيحية على تجاوز ‏احداث ذاك اليوم ومن بينها عائلة العماد ميشال عون الذي وفّر لها خروجاً امنا من قصر ‏بعبدا الى السفارة الفرنسية في الحازمية.‏
عودته في العام 1990 تأتي بعد اخفاق في عودة عسكرية سبقتها في ايلول 1986 بعد تصدي ‏الجيش اللبناني لمقاتليه الذين سيطروا على الاشرفية ومحيطها.‏
وفي العام 1991 يعين نائباًً عن بيروت عن المقعد الماروني، وفي العام نفسه يعين وزير دولة في ‏حكومة الرئيس عمر كرامي ويسند اليه ملف المهجرين. ينكب على اجراء دراسة شاملة حدد ‏حجم المشكلة وكلفة معالجتها.‏
في العام 1992 يعين وزير دولة لملف المهجرين في حكومة الرئيس رشيد الصلح وينظم المؤتمر ‏الوطني لعودة المهجرين الذي خرج بتوصيات اسس لخطة العودة وبرامجها التنفيذية. كما يفوز ‏في الانتخابات النيابية في دائرة بعبدا. في نهاية العام 1992 يعين وزيرا للشؤون الاجتماعية ‏في حكومة الرئيس رفيق الحريري فيضع اسس وزارة الشؤون الاجتماعية ويعبر التفاتة كبرى ‏لقضية المعوقين.‏
وفي حكومة الرئيس الحريري نفسها يعين وزيرا للموارد المائية والكهرباذية ويستمر في ‏حكوماته المتعاقبة حتى نهاية العام 1998 مع انتهاء ولاية الرئيس الياس الهراوي.‏
في العام 1996 ينتخب للمرة الثانية عن دائرة بعبدا مترأسا لائحة انتخابية فازت بكاملها ‏باستثناء خرق واحد لصالح بيار دكاش. وفي العام 2000 يفشل في الانتخابات عن الدائرة ‏نفسها بعدما ضم اليها قضاء عاليه.‏
قبل اغتياله بستة اشهر ومع فتح قضية صبرا وشاتيلا امام احدى المحاكم البلجيكية، اعلن ‏عزمه الذهاب الى هناك واضعا نفسه بتصرف المحكمة ليدلي ويقدم ما عنده من شهادات ووثائق ‏تدحض الرواية الاسرائيلية التي وردت في تقرير لجنة كاهان الاسرائيلية، وقبل اغتياله بـ ‏‏48 ساعة يلتقي وفدا من لجنة الشؤون الخارجية في البرلمان البلجيكي للغاية نفسها، لكن ‏القضاء عليه سبق القضاء البلجيكي فاغتيل ومعه اغتيلت حقائق كثيرة. كان دائما يردد: ‏‏«ان من شأنها ان تقلب كل شيء».‏
وغدا وفي الرابعة عصرا وفي كنيسة القلب الاقدس بدارو تقيم عائلة الراحل قداسا وجنازا ‏عن روحه وارواح رفاقه مختتمة يوم صلاة خصص لاحياء الذكرى الخامسة على غيابه.... KILLERS+MURDERERS
The small press world? CIA & the MEDIA

The small press world, the major media world, the graffiti
written on walls, the grandmother in the crowd holding a
political slogan, the movies, the newsgroups,
The Blogs. There is no corner of information
flow that is left unmolested by CIA goons.

I think that CIA propgandists urinate in the newsgroups
to drive people away, because they cannot stand a source
of information that they cannot control. If you understand
the CIA, you understand that they absolutely could never
afford to leave newsgroups alone. They will flood them
with provocateurs, Devil's Advocates, and false identities....

In the 1970s, when revelations were coming out about
CIA activities, there were a couple of poignant questions posed
to a couple chief honchos, one being a former CIA director,
and another being a major newspaper executive, I believe
for the Washington Post, if memory serves me correctly.

Someone asked the newspaper executive, "How many people
do you have on your staff who work for the CIA?"
His answer was, "I do not have the slightest idea."

A similar question, when put to a former CIA director, was
answered, "We own virtually everyone of any significance."

On Amine Gemayel's inflated self-worth...
If Amine Gemayel had learned from his mistakes, he wouldn't go
to the Americans and would have taught his hard earned lesson to
All Lebanese youth.
After the death of Bachir, the tension between Syria and Israel was at
its peak in Lebanon. Both had a military presence on Lebanese soil,
and each was worse than the other. Not wanting to choose between the
two and instead of continuing what his brother was starting to do -
divorce himself from the Israelis to espouse a Lebanese nationalist
agenda - he asked the Americans for help. After all, a superpower like
the US was a better choice, a third choice, a theoretically imposing
one, with a small exception that the US has always looked for the
Israeli interests first. As a result, they made him sign what's called the
May 17th agreement.
The consequence was an overwhelming part of the Lebanese population
were opposed to that, and made his presidency one of the most difficult
and painful, ending in his self-exile after filling his pockets (but
that's another story). Amine Gemayel destroyed the Lebanese economy.
The moral in here is simple. The US will always care for the Israeli
interests more than the Lebanese one. Lebanon will never function as
long as some party monopolizes power with foreign assistance,
alienating a big part of the Lebanese population.
History will repeat itself Mr. Gemayel. It's a simple question of
waiting. Sooner or later, either the US will change its policy towards
Lebanon, or internal pressure will drive the governing party to
failure and self-exile. It's time to consider what the late Bachir{RIP}
knew to be the only way for Lebanon to prosper: A nationalistic
consensus from Within. We owe it to ourselves and to our children.

It shows you the disconnect in basic senses of reality, black is white and white is RED.

You will not hear much about the CIA connections of
major figures like Rush Limbaugh, Robert Novak,
Pat Buchanan, etc. If you understand the CIA, you do not
even have any evidence to know that they are there. It is the
way that they operate. Period. Virtually any time that
you see a right-wing, hate-spewing nut-job who is
making major, big bucks, you can bet that they are playing
ball for the CIA, or they would not be major successes,
would not be prominent, and would not be making
the major bucks. They would have been related to the
boonies or quitely suicided, like Gary Webb, if they had
confronted power and dared to speak any of the forbidden
truths.... about ANYTHING of any significance.

The media not only does not have a "left-wing bias"-
there virtually *is* no real leftist media in the United States,
or anywhere.

Even the furthest left of the supposed left is very tame
and watered down. Progaganda is King, including the
pure propaganda about "liberal bias" and
"liberal activist judges".

In the midst of all this madness, the overwhelmlingly dominant
phrase, repeated over and over again in the supposedly
"liberal media" is the right-wing propaganda-phrase about
"liberal activist judges".

It is such a complete picture of decadent rot, that there
is no peaceful solution.

The world is upside-down. If we cannot push it right-side up,
it would be fine to blow it right out of the sky. Much better,
for nothing to exist at all, than to continue existing like this.
To complete hell with the entire, rotten mess....

Why Nemesis is at the US's door
By C' J.

History tells us that one of the most unstable political combinations is a
country - like the United States today - that tries to be a domestic
democracy and a foreign imperialist.

Why this is so can be a very abstract subject. Perhaps the best way to offer
my thoughts on this is to say a few words about my new book, Nemesis, and
explain why I gave it the subtitle The Last Days of the American Republic.
Nemesis is the third book to have grown out of my research over the past
eight years. I never set out to write a trilogy on America's increasingly
endangered democracy, but as I kept stumbling on ever more evidence of the
legacy of the imperialist pressures we Americans put on many other countries
as well as the nature and size of our military empire, one book led to

Professionally, I am a specialist in the history and politics of East Asia.
In 2000, I published Blowback: The Costs and Consequences of American
Empire, because my research on China, Japan and the two Koreas persuaded me
that US policies there would have serious future consequences. The book was
noticed at the time, but only after September 11, 2001, did the Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA) term I adapted for the title - "blowback" - become
a household word and my volume a best-seller.

I had set out to explain how exactly the US government came to be so hated
around the world. As a CIA term of tradecraft, "blowback" does not just mean
retaliation for things the government has done to, and in, foreign
countries. It refers specifically to retaliation for illegal operations
carried out abroad that were kept totally secret from the US public.

These operations have included the clandestine overthrow of governments
various US administrations did not like, the training of foreign militaries
in the techniques of state terrorism, the rigging of elections in foreign
countries, and interference with the economic viability of countries that
seemed to threaten the interests of influential US corporations, as well as
the torture or assassination of selected foreigners. The fact that these
actions were, at least originally, secret meant that when retaliation does
come - as it did so spectacularly on September 11, 2001 - the US public is
incapable of putting the events in context. Not surprisingly, then,
Americans tend to support speedy acts of revenge intended to punish the
actual, or alleged, perpetrators. These moments of lashing out, of course,
only prepare the ground for yet another cycle of blowback.

A world of bases
As a continuation of my own analytical odyssey, I then began doing research
on the network of 737 US military bases maintained around the world
(according to the Pentagon's own 2005 official inventory). Not including the
Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, the US now stations more than half a million
troops, spies, contractors, dependants and others on military bases in more
than 130 countries, many of them presided over by dictatorial regimes that
have given their citizens no say in the decision to let the US in.

As but one striking example of imperial basing policy: for the past 61
years, the US military has garrisoned the small Japanese island of Okinawa
with 37 bases. Smaller than Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands, Okinawa is home
to 1.3 million people who live cheek-by-jowl with 17,000 US troops of the
3rd Marine Division and the largest US installation in East Asia - Kadena
Air Force Base. There have been many Okinawan protests against the rapes,
crimes, accidents and pollution caused by this sort of concentration of US
troops and weaponry, but so far the US military - in collusion with the
Japanese government - has ignored them. My research into America's base
world resulted in The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of
the Republic, written during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq.

As the US occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq turned into major fiascoes,
discrediting America's military leadership, ruining its public finances, and
bringing death and destruction to hundreds of thousands of civilians in
those countries, I continued to ponder the issue of empire. In these years,
it became ever clearer that President George W Bush, Vice President Dick
Cheney, and their supporters were claiming, and actively assuming, powers
specifically denied to a president by the constitution. It became no less
clear that the Congress had almost completely abdicated its responsibilities
to balance the power of the executive branch. Despite the Democratic Party's
sweep in last year's congressional election, it remains to be seen whether
these tendencies can, in the long run, be controlled, let alone reversed.

Until the 2004 presidential election, we ordinary citizens of the United
States could at least claim that our foreign policy, including our illegal
invasion of Iraq, was the work of George Bush's administration and that we
had not put him in office. After all, in 2000, Bush lost the popular vote
and was appointed president thanks to the intervention of the Supreme Court
in a 5-4 decision. But in November 2004, regardless of claims about voter
fraud, Bush actually won the popular vote by more than 3.5 million ballots,
making his regime and his wars ours.

Whether Americans intended it or not, we are now seen around the world as
approving the torture of captives at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, at Bagram
Air Base in Kabul, at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and at a global network of
secret CIA prisons, as well as having endorsed Bush's claim that, as
commander-in-chief in "wartime", he is beyond all constraints of the US
constitution or international law. We are now saddled with a rigged economy
based on record-setting trade and fiscal deficits, the most secretive and
intrusive government in our country's memory, and the pursuit of
"preventive" war as a basis for foreign policy. Don't forget as well the
potential epidemic of nuclear proliferation as other nations attempt to
adjust to and defend themselves against Bush's preventive wars, while our
own already staggering nuclear arsenal expands toward first-strike primacy
and we expend unimaginable billions of dollars on futuristic ideas for
warfare in outer space.

The choice ahead

By the time I came to write Nemesis, I no longer doubted that maintaining
America's empire abroad required resources and commitments that would
inevitably undercut, or simply skirt, what was left of our domestic
democracy and that might, in the end, produce a military dictatorship or -
far more likely - its civilian equivalent.

The combination of huge standing armies, almost continuous wars, an ever
growing economic dependence on the military-industrial complex and the
making of weaponry, and ruinous military expenses as well as a vast, bloated
"defense" budget, not to speak of the creation of a whole second Defense
Department (known as the Department of Homeland Security) has been
destroying our republican structure of governing in favor of an imperial
presidency. By republican structure, of course, I mean the separation of
powers and the elaborate checks and balances that the founders of the United
States wrote into the constitution as the main bulwarks against dictatorship
and tyranny, which they greatly feared.

We Americans are on the brink of losing our democracy for the sake of
keeping our empire. Once a nation starts down that path, the dynamics that
apply to all empires come into play - isolation, overstretch, the uniting of
local and global forces opposed to imperialism, and in the end bankruptcy.

History is instructive on this dilemma. If we choose to keep our empire, as
the Roman republic did, we will certainly lose our democracy and grimly
await the eventual blowback that imperialism generates. There is an
alternative, however.

We could, like the British Empire after World War II, keep our democracy by
giving up our empire. The British did not do a particularly brilliant job of
liquidating their empire and there were several clear cases where British
imperialists defied their nation's commitment to democracy to hang on to
foreign privileges. The war against the Kikuyu in Kenya in the 1950s and the
Anglo-French-Israeli invasion of Egypt in 1956 are particularly savage
examples of that. But the overall thrust of postwar British history is
clear: the people of the British Isles chose democracy over imperialism.

In her book The Origins of Totalitarianism, political philosopher Hannah
Arendt offered the following summary of British imperialism and its fate:

On the whole it was a failure because of the dichotomy between the
nation-state's legal principles and the methods needed to oppress other
people permanently. This failure was neither necessary nor due to ignorance
or incompetence. British imperialists knew very well that "administrative
massacres" could keep India in bondage, but they also knew that public
opinion at home would not stand for such measures. Imperialism could have
been a success if the nation-state had been willing to pay the price, to
commit suicide and transform itself into a tyranny. It is one of the glories
of Europe, and especially of Great Britain , that she preferred to liquidate
the empire.

I agree with this judgment. When one looks at British Prime Minister Tony
Blair's unnecessary and futile support of Bush's invasion and occupation of
Iraq, one can only conclude that it was an atavistic response, that it
represented a British longing to relive the glories - and cruelties - of a
past that should have been ancient history.

As a form of government, imperialism does not seek or require the consent of
the governed. It is a pure form of tyranny. The US attempt to combine
domestic democracy with such tyrannical control over foreigners is
hopelessly contradictory and hypocritical. A country can be democratic or it
can be imperialistic, but it cannot be both.

The road to imperial bankruptcy
The US political system failed to prevent this combination from developing -
and may now be incapable of correcting it. The evidence strongly suggests
that the legislative and judicial branches of the US government have become
so servile in the presence of the imperial presidency that they have largely
lost the ability to respond in a principled and independent manner. Even in
the present moment of congressional stirring, there seems to be a deep sense
of helplessness. Various members of Congress have already attempted to
explain how the one clear power they retain - to cut off funds for a
disastrous program - is not one they are currently prepared to use.

So the question becomes, if not Congress, could the people themselves
restore constitutional government? A grassroots movement to abolish secret
government, to bring the CIA and other illegal spying operations and private
armies out of the closet of imperial power and into the light, to break the hold
of the military-industrial complex, and to establish genuine public financing of
elections may be at least theoretically conceivable. But given the
conglomerate control of the US mass media and the difficulties of mobilizing
America 's large and diverse population, such an opting for popular
democracy, as we remember it from our past, seems unlikely.

It is possible that, at some future moment, the US military could actually
take over the government and declare a dictatorship (though its commanders
would undoubtedly find a gentler, more user-friendly name for it). That is,
after all, how the Roman republic ended - by being turned over to a populist
general, Julius Caesar, who had just been declared dictator for life. After
his assassination and a short interregnum, it was his grandnephew Octavian
who succeeded him and became the first Roman emperor, Augustus Caesar.

The US military is unlikely to go that route?. But one cannot ignore the fact
that professional military officers seem to have played a considerable role
in getting rid of their civilian overlord, secretary of defense Donald
Rumsfeld. The new directors of the CIA, its main internal branches, the
National Security Agency, and many other key organs of the "defense
establishment" are now military (or ex-military) officers, strongly
suggesting that the military does not need to take over the government to
control it. Meanwhile, the all-volunteer US Army has emerged as an ever more
separate institution in US society, its profile less and less like that of
the general populace.

Nonetheless, military coups, however decorous, are not part of the US
tradition, nor that of the officer corps, which might well worry about how
the citizenry would react to a move toward open military dictatorship.
Moreover, prosecutions of low-level military torturers from Abu Ghraib
prison and killers of civilians in Iraq have demonstrated to enlisted troops
that obedience to illegal orders can result in dire punishment in a
situation where those of higher rank go free. No one knows whether ordinary
soldiers, even from what is no longer in any normal sense a citizen army,
would obey clearly illegal orders to oust an elected government or whether
the officer corps would ever have sufficient confidence to issue such
orders. In addition, the present system already offers the military high
command so much - in funds, prestige, and future employment via the famed
"revolving door" of the military-industrial complex - that a perilous
transition to anything like direct military rule would make little sense
under reasonably normal conditions.

Whatever future developments may prove to be, my best guess is that the US
will continue to maintain a facade of constitutional government and drift
along until financial bankruptcy overtakes it. Of course, bankruptcy will
not mean the literal end of the US any more than it did for Germany in 1923,
China in 1948, or Argentina in 2001-02. It might, in fact, open the way for
an unexpected restoration of the US system - or for military rule,
revolution, or simply some new development we cannot yet imagine.

Certainly, such a bankruptcy would mean a drastic lowering of Americans'
standard of living, a further loss of control over international affairs, a
sudden need to adjust to the rise of other powers, including China and
India, and a further discrediting of the notion that the United States is
somehow exceptional compared with other nations. We will have to learn what
it means to be a far poorer country - and the attitudes and manners that go
with it. As Anatol Lieven, author of America Right or Wrong: An Anatomy of
American Nationalism, [1] observes:

US global power, as presently conceived by the overwhelming majority of the
US establishment, is unsustainable ... The empire can no longer raise enough
taxes or soldiers, it is increasingly indebted, and key vassal states are no
longer reliable ... The result is that the empire can no longer pay for
enough of the professional troops it needs to fulfill its self-assumed
imperial tasks.

Last February, the Bush administration submitted to Congress a US$439
billion defense appropriation budget for fiscal year 2007. As the country
enters 2007, the administration is about to present a nearly $100 billion
supplementary request to Congress just for the Iraq and Afghan wars. At the
same time, the deficit in the country's current account - the imbalance in
the trading of goods and services as well as the shortfall in all other
cross-border payments from interest income and rents to dividends and
profits on direct investments - underwent its fastest ever quarterly

For 2005, the current-account deficit was $805 billion, 6.4% of national
income. In that year the US trade deficit, the largest component of the
current-account deficit, soared to an all-time high of $725.8 billion, the
fourth consecutive year that America 's trade debts set records. The trade
deficit with China alone rose to $201.6 billion, the highest imbalance ever
recorded with any country. Meanwhile, since mid-2000, the US has lost nearly
3 million manufacturing jobs.

To try to cope with these imbalances, last March 16, Congress raised the
national debt limit from $8.2 trillion to $8.96 trillion. This was the
fourth time since George W Bush took office that it had to be raised. The
national debt is the total amount owed by the government and should not be
confused with the federal budget deficit, the annual amount by which federal
spending exceeds revenue. Had Congress not raised the debt limit, the US
government would not have been able to borrow more money and would have had
to default on its massive debts.

Among the creditors that finance these unprecedented sums, the two largest
are the central banks of China (with $853.7 billion in reserves) and Japan
(with $831.58 billion in reserves), both of which are the managers of the
huge trade surpluses these countries enjoy with the United States. This
helps explain why America's debt burden has not yet triggered what standard
economic theory would dictate: a steep decline in the value of the US dollar
followed by a severe contraction of the US economy when Americans found we
could no longer afford the foreign goods we like so much. So far, both the
Chinese and Japanese governments continue to be willing to be paid in
dollars to sustain US purchases of their exports.

For the sake of their own domestic employment, both countries lend huge
amounts to the US Treasury, but there is no guarantee of how long they will
want to, or be able to do so. Marshall Auerback, an international financial
strategist, says the US has become a "Blanche Dubois economy" (so named
after the leading character in the Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named
Desire) heavily dependent on "the kindness of strangers". Unfortunately, in
America 's case, as in Blanche's, there are ever fewer strangers willing to
support our illusions.

So my own hope is that - if the American people do not find a way to choose
democracy over empire - at least our imperial venture will end not with a
nuclear bang but a financial whimper. From the present vantage point, it
certainly seems a daunting challenge for any president (or Congress) from
either party even to begin the task of dismantling the military-industrial
complex, ending the pall of "national security" secrecy and the "black
budgets" that make public oversight of what the government does impossible,
and bringing the president's secret army, the CIA, under democratic control.
It's evident that Nemesis - in Greek mythology the goddess of vengeance, the
punisher of hubris and arrogance - is already a visitor in the United
States, simply biding her time before she makes her presence known.

Hobeika Assassination:
Sharon's & USA's Government Bloody Message, CIA & MOSSAD are in bed together on this one here.

The hand of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in the Jan. 24 assassination of Lebanese former Christian militia leader Elie Hobeika is clear. The assassination occurred within hours of a hearing before a Belgian appeals court, which announced a final decision would be made March 6 on whether the war crimes investigation of Sharon, conducted by a Brussels prosecutor, can go forward. Hobeika had just announced his confirmed intention to be a crucial witness against Sharon. However, this assassination was not simply "tampering with a witness." It is a clear message by Sharon and those who stand behind him, that they will not be denied in their plans for a new Middle East war, despite the clash of civilizations it will ignite.

On Jan. 22, two days before the assassination, Sharon and his generals held a closed forum. According to the Israeli daily Ha'aretz on Jan. 24, several potential war senarios were discussed, one of which envisioned "an all-out war, that would begin with an attack by Hezbollah rockets, combined with a wave of Palestinian attacks." Israel would respond in Lebanon and against Syrian air defenses, and would invade the Palestinian Authority to "make order." Such a war would be modelled after the U.S. campaigns in Kosovo and Afghanistan, using massive Israeli air attacks." Envisioning the possibility of "Syrian Scud missile attacks, Israel could respond with heavy bombardment of missiles sites and infrastructure in Syria."

A few hours after this meeting, Israeli military posts along the Israeli-Lebanon border were the target of anti-tank rocket attacks by the Hezbollah. The Israelis immediately responded by deploying F-16 jets to target Hezbollah positions. The incident did not escalate further. The Israelis claimed the attack was unprovoked; yet, the next day, the United States warned Israel not to conduct military flights over Lebanese territory. This warning was in reference to the fact, that despite Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon last July, its F-16 bombers routinely conduct overflights, often creating sonic booms to terrorize Lebanese cities.

Hobeika was killed in Christian East Beirut by a powerful car-bomb. It was the first killing of a Lebanese who fought in the civil war since the announcement of an amnesty over a decade ago. A London-based Lebanese source pointed out, "You have to understand, there has not been a killing like this in over a decade, not even at the lowest level. No one is going to grieve for Hobeika, but—you know, I don't believe in conspiracies, but this time it is clear to me that it was the Israelis." Such assassinations have not occurred for the simple reason that the "law of revenge" would rekindle the bloody civil war which destroyed much of Lebanon throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

The group that claimed responsibility for the assassination was the "Lebanese for a Free and Independent Lebanon," a group not previously heard of. It accused Hobeika of being a Syrian agent and a traitor. Fitting in with Sharon's war plans, the second part of the statement is a direct threat to Syrian President Bashar Assad. It was a warning that he would suffer the same fate as Hobeika if "he set foot in Lebanon before removing all of his troops." Assad is expected to attend a Beirut meeting soon, and he is not expected to remove the 30,000 Syrian troops prior to his arrival.

While no one has heard of this group, one wonders whether it is linked to the so-called "Government of Lebanon in Exile," whose office address is 59 King George Street, in the center of Jerusalem. Its spokesman, Nagi N. Najjar, recently penned an article denouncing the Belgian government for allowing its prosecutors to investigate allegations that Sharon was responsible for war crimes, because of his role in the massacres in the Sabra and Chatila Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon in 1982. Najjar claims that the camps were simply "training centers for terrorists." The "government" which Najjar represents is, no doubt, made up of remnants of the so-called South Lebanon Army, which was the mercenary force the Israeli Army created, financed, and armed throughout its 20-year occupation of southern Lebanon. It is the one Lebanese group that did not sign on to the official Lebanese amnesty.

This "government" is also supported by the so-called United States Committee for a Free Lebanon, founded by Lebanese-American and Wall Street "venture capitalist" Ziad K. Abdelnour. According to its official website, the committee's "Golden Circle" of those who have lent "invaluable support" to its cause, include the leading war-mongers inside and outside the Bush Administration. This includes Douglas Feith, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense for Policy, and Richard Perle, of the ultra-right-wing American Enterprise Institute, a good friend of the leader of the Bush Administration's war faction, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. Among many others are right-wingers Daniel Pipes, Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), and Iran-Contra player and former National Security Adviser Robert McFarlane. All are self-proclaimed friends of Sharon.
Tampering With a Witness ...

On Jan. 23, less then 24 hours before Hobeika's assassination, a Belgian appeals courts heard final arguments by Sharon's attorneys demanding that the investigation of their client be terminated. As the accompanying interview with Michael Verhaeghe, one of the attorneys representing the Palestinian victims in the case, indicates, the hearing did not seem to go well for Sharon.

Following the Hobeika assassination, Verhaege and his colleagues issued a statement, saying, "The elimination of a key protagonist, who had offered to assist with the enquiry, appears as an evident attempt to undermine the case" (see below).

In 1982, Hobeika was the head of intelligence for the Christian Phalangist militia. It was his unit which took part in the Sabra and Chatila massacre. In his checkered career, he went from an Israeli protégé to a politician who served in the Lebanese government in the 1990s. On July 18, 2001, a few weeks after filing the case against Sharon in Belgium, Hobeika, in a press conference, declared his willingness to go to Brussels to testify. "I openly declare that I am very satisfied that the Sabra and Chatila case has been brought to Belgium, perhaps giving me the first opportunity in 19 years to tell the truth and defend myself and my reputation ... and get cleared of this accusation."

As he was making this declaration, a formal request by the attorneys representing the Palestinian plaintiffs was made to the investigative prosecutor, calling for Hobeika to be invited to testify. The only reason he was not called to Belgium last year, was that the investigation was suspended, while the appeals process was being carried out. That process has now ended, with the Jan. 23 hearing...

False Flag Operations, and Assassinations EXPERT.



On Jan. 23, Hobeika met with two Belgian Senators, Josy Dubie and Vincent van Quickenbourne, who were on a fact-finding tour in their capacities as members of the Belgian Sabra and Chatila Committee. Hobeika reiterated his intention to come to Belgium and testify in the trial. Less then 24 hours later, he was dead....
Clever Planning ??? more later...

Washington's & Israel's fingerprints, are all over Dick Cheney's White House " Murder Inc."

Those visiting this collection of BLOGS about Mr. Elie Hobeika,
the various Lebanon Assassinations... etc. IF “In the Know "
and you think that the old Intelligence adage applies:

"Those who know don't tell and those who tell, don't know."
Think twice:
I want you to know that this does not apply here, because Lebanon
has lost a HERO, a Leader and a VISIONARY.
Remember, I will talk a little about the leopard changing his spots,....
is therefore extraordinarily sensitive and hemmed in with exceptional security measures....

We are determined to TELL the Whole World about this terrible INJUSTICE....


SHOUD BE IN CHARGE OF The tribunal AND its main goal should be to try those accused of carrying out several assassinations, attempted killings, and bomb attacks since January 24th 2002, the most prominent being Mr. Elie Hobeika's murder in a car bomb blast six years ago.

Notwithstanding all the hoopla about the IIIC and commissioner Brammertz:
Who cares who really did it? If it is useful for the U.S. government – and Israel, and the Lebanese opposition – to hold the government of Syria responsible, then such details are the concern only of the "reality-based community," which naively insists on an archaic devotion to facts.

An effective prosecution and a fair trial in the Hobeika assassination and in related attacks that occurred in Lebanon since January 24, 2002 are essential to fight impunity and to promote accountability in Lebanon and in the Middle East. In an atmosphere of insecurity and political uncertainty, the Hobeika Tribunal has the challenge of establishing its credibility with the Lebanese people and the international community. In time we will set out several areas that need to be addressed when the Hobeika Tribunal is to satisfy the promise of delivering justice? .

‏سبت النور - وأحد القيامة...

بقلم زينا الخوري

في مثل هذا اليوم المجيد وجدت أمنا البتول مريم العذراء وهي ذاهبة لزيارة قبر ولدها يسوع ‏لتدهنه بالطيب، كما كانت العادات اليهودية، وجدت حراس القبر وكانوا (6) ثلاثة من ‏اليهود وثلاثة من حراس الرومان مذهولين وقد أغمي عليهم. ولما نظرت الى الحجر الذي كان ‏وزنه اكثر من طنّين رأت ملاكين جالسين على الحجر فبادرت السيدة العذراء بالسؤال عن ابنها، ‏الذي مات مصلوباً، فأجابوها: لماذا تسألين عن الحي بين الأموات. إذهبي وبشّري التلاميذ ‏بقيامة المسيح، وهو سيظهر عليهم قريبا. وهكذا كان لما ظهر المسيح المتجلي لابساً لباساً ‏ابيضاً كالثلج قال لتلاميذه: أنا هو!! فاقترب «توما» ولم يُصدقه في البداية لكن بعدها قال ‏له الرب يسوع: تعال وضع يديك مكان المسامير، ففتح يديه ولما أدخل توما أصابعه اغمي ‏عليه هو الآخر. المسيح قام من بين الأموات، ووطأ الموت بالموت، ووهب الحياة للذين في ‏القبور، لأنه كان قد أعطي الحياة لألعازر الذي كان ميتاً منذ اسبوع، وقد بدأ جسده ‏بالاهتراء، ولما اقامه واعطاه الحياة كانت رسالة للبشرية حتى تعلم إن من يؤمن بالمسيح، ‏وإن مات فسيحيا لذلك وبهذه المناسبة الجليلة التي هي من أهم اسرار الديانة المسيحية. ‏‏«القيامة» اتضرع اليك يا يسوع، ان يكون جالسا بقربك في ملكوت السماوي كل الذين رقدوا ‏بالمسيح خاصة الأقارب، الأحباب، القادة الأبرار الذين استشهدوا ليحيا الوطن وهنا لا بد ‏من ان اخص بالذكر الشهيد المظلوم المغفور له القائد ايلي حبيقه لأنه قضى ظلماً ونحن بأمسّ ‏الحاجة اليه يا يسوع خاصة في هذا الظرف الأليم بالذات وايضا المغفور له بيار امين الجميّل ‏وغيرهم وغيرهم وغيرهم فنستحلفكِ ايتها الأم العذراء ان تتضرعي لأجل موتانا وان تطلبي من ‏ابنك الحبيب القائم من الموت ان يُحيي من نحن بحاجة اليهم. اكيد بالروح فوجود ارواحهم ‏بيننا يعني انهم لم يموتوا الا بالجسد، وهذا الأمل ممكن ان يكون حاصلا من قبل ونحن ربما لا ندري ‏بذلك نقول: من آمن بالمسيح وإن مات فسيحيا أكيد سيحيا بالروح الى ابد الآبدين ودهر ‏الداهرين آمين.‏وهنا السر الأكبر... ويا ويل من لا يصدق بقيامة المسيح. فالروح المسيحية تبقى مدى الحياة ‏ساكنة بين اهلها ومحبيها ومرفرفة عليهم دون ان يدروا، لكنهم يشعرون دائما بحضورها ‏السري بينهم وهناك علامات إحساس وشعور لا تظهر للعيان... المسيح قام حقاً قام وكل قيامة ‏وأنتم بخير.‏
At a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act"
- G. Orwell

A U.S. intelligence source revealed to me, that in the world of intelligence
"carve out" subcontracts such confusion is often the case with "plausible
deniability" being a foremost concern in ALL covert operations, especially
in Elie Hobeika's case on January 24th 2002, & Hariri's Feb. 14th 2005...
Notwithstanding Jacques CHIRAC's gesticulations and false sorrow for the loss
of his "friend" Rafic HARIRI, he has been regularly organizing official meetings in Paris for Asef Shawkat with his services to secure SYRIA for and with Asef Shawkat,hence,In a series of secret meetings in Israel and Europe, between
2000 and July 2006, Syrians, Americans and Israelis formulated understandings for orchestrating several murders in Lebanon ...and were executed well, with great precision and excellent timing like clock work, the extreme sophistication of Hariri's MURDER is a case in point for later comments in due course...

I’m told by Intelligence sources that while Rafic Hariri was in the US visiting Donald Rumsfeld, he mentions Koley'at Airport again... but an agreement failed to materialize again.Hariri was approached by US Intelligence earlier and had refused categorically to discuss US rights for an Air Base in North Lebanon, specifically the Koleiat Airport. Rafic Hariri was eyeing a pristine stretch of beach front land properties north of Tripoli , stretching for miles inland and into the hills behind it, and north to AKKAR . These beaches are of an immense value for a developer and Hariri had huge plans for the area,after he finds a permanent solution to settle the Palestinian refugees elsewhere. He had specific plans for that too, but did not want any Syrian meddling into these monumental projects, and local SUNNI traditional Leaderships did not like very much Hariri having an eye on these areas, especially that if he were to develop such properties, immense benefits for the area would ensue, with thousands of jobs at stake and economic development for an area desperate for investment and jobs. Had he succeeded in getting these projects off the ground, Rafic Hariri would have threatened the local traditional Sunni leaders of Tripoli, and his hegemonistic leadership on the Sunnis in Lebanon would have been almost complete.... but Rafic refused to play ball with the Americans and he wanted to develop that particular airport himself and turn it into a major international tourist hub, after building huge projects in the area . In order to protect his new "turf" and his potential Mega-investments in the North Lebanon, he resorted to a dangerous tactic, traditional to his Saudi Mentors.... Extreme Sunni local tribes, "turned Jihadists" in order to scare overseas investors and Imperial Hubris from poking in his projected new investment territories, and keep everyone away from the "prize"....the end result is what we see today in the North Of Lebanon, in Nahr Al-Bared and in all of the areas stretching from Jubeil, all the way to Kleiat and Akkar....[ watch and learn from the New Hollywoodian long Film, Unfold in front of your very eyes...]

When this approach with Hariri failed, the US turned to another local Sunni with strong ties to the Syrians...What I can tell you is that 4 years ago, a Lebanese middleman approached then Transport Minister Najib Mikati and told him the US is very keen on Koley'at. Mikati went to see his Syrian mentors (Makhloufs) and tried to woo them by promising riches ensuing from modernization work on the airport and basing rights for the US Air Force and NATO etc. At first the Syrians were willing to play, then US-Syrian relations soured.... for a while..... a tug of war is sure to unfold here, and the winners will have a big prize.
