This is a sordid tale indeed.

A United Nations tribunal is to indict Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei with ordering the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, U.S. news website Newsmax reported on Saturday, adding that the hit itself was planned executed by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in collaboration with Hezbollah.

The report comes just days into Lebanon’s latest political crisis, as minister affiliated with Hezbollah and its allies withdrew from the unity cabinet led by Saad Hariri earlier this week, citing Hariri’s cooperation with the UN-led probe of his father’s killing.

 

Saturday’s Newsmax report, also cited by Lebanese news website Naharnet, quotes source close to the UN investigation of the Hariri killing who claimed that the order to assassinate the former Lebanon premier was given by Khamenei.

The order was then reportedly passed on to Hezbollah military leader Imad Mughniyeh by the head of the IRG’s Quds foece, Qassem Suleymani. Upon receiving the order, Mughniyeh and brother in law Mustapha Badr al-Dine allegedly put together an assassination squad.

Mughniyeh himself was killed in a car bombing in Damascus on February 12, 2008. Hezbollah has blamed Israel for the assassination, but Israel has denied any involvement.

ANY FUTURE tribunal ruling will be null and void.

Speaking with Newsmax, a conservative news website, sources close to the probe are quoted as saying that the “Iranians considered Hariri to be an agent of Saudi Arabia, and felt that killing him would pave the way for a Hezbollah takeover of Lebanon.”

The report also alleges that both Syrian President Bashar Assad and the head of Syrian intelligence and brother in law Assef Shawkat were also involved in the operation.

Lebanese Labor Minister Boutros Harb said on Saturday that the UN tribunal probing Hariri’s murder would submit a draft indictment on Monday.

Harb’s announcement came after he met with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman.

Earlier on Saturday, the Lebanese daily Al Nahar had reported that the draft would be submitted later in the day.

 

Tehran, Nov 25, IRNA - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad officially saw off his Lebanese counterpart Michel Suleiman on Tuesday after his two-day state visit to Iran. Speaking to reporters, Suleiman said that during his two-day stay in Tehran he had very fruitful talks with Iranian officials on expansion of mutual relations and expansion of all-out cooperation. The two presidents reviewed guard of honor as national anthems of their countries were played.-----11/25/08

<hmmm.  This is 3 year after the assassination. Conspirator or dupe?>

The draft indictment is to be submitted to Pre-Trial Judge Daniel Fransen who will then have around six weeks before he decides whether or not to proceed toward a trial.

According to various reports yesterday, Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare appealed STL Pre-Trial Judge Daniel Fransen’s September 17 ruling that former General Security chief Jamil as-Sayyed’s information request falls within the tribunal’s jurisdiction. ----------October 1, 2010 (nowlebanon.com)

 

 

The report of Iran’s alleged involvement in the planning and execution of the Hariri assassination comes in an already volatile period in Lebanese politics, as many fear that indictments against Hezbollah officials could spark a new round of factional violence, if not full-on civil war.

Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran and maintains an arsenal that far outweighs that of the national army, denounces the Netherlands-based tribunal as a conspiracy by the U.S. and Israel. It had been pressuring Hariri to reject any of its findings even before they came out, but Hariri has refused to break cooperation with the tribunal.

 

 

Now, the chasm between the two sides is deepening with Hezbollah accusing Hariri’s bloc of bowing to the West. Hezbollah’s ministers timed their resignations to coincide with Hariri’s meeting with President Barack Obama in Washington, forcing him to meet the American president as a caretaker prime minister.

 

 

 

 

Lebanon suffered through a devastating civil war from 1975-1990, a 1982 Israeli invasion to drive out Palestinian fighters in the south, a 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah, and deadly sectarian fighting between Sunnis and Shiites in 2008.

 

While the small community of adherents to strict Islam are being courted by Sunni and Shiite rivals, many worry they could bring Al Qaeda into the Lebanon conflict.----Tensions rising: A bomb exploded outside a mosque Tuesday in a south Lebanon Palestinian camp.

<Muslim against Muslim – This is the core of ISLAM.  Conquest and Submission.  If there is no other faith on earth left, other than Islam, then there would still be the war and violence, because THAT is ISLAM.>

 

An indication that some of those fears may have been founded came late Thursday as unknown individuals hurled grenades at the headquarters of Hezbollah ally Free Patriotic Movement’s headquarters north of Beirut. No injuries were reported.

Speaking of the need to regain control of the potentially volatile Lebanese political scene, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said earlier Thursday that he was sure there would be no civil conflict between Shiites and Sunnis.

<I point to the statement just I made just before.  Lets not forget the Sudan.  Light skin Muslim against black skin Muslim.  ISLAM is CONQUEST and SUBMISSION>

According to a Channel 10 reported citing the Al-Jazeera news network, Nasrallah, who had been reportedly holding meetings with other Hezbollah officials in recent days to discuss the political situation in Lebanon, blamed Hariri for the current political crisis, urging the Lebanese prime minister to remain on his overseas trip and not return to Lebanon.

As noted earlier, Hassan Nasrallah has branded the Hariri tribunal as being an 'Israeli project.' The reason for Nasrallah's attack on the tribunal is apparently that he fears that the tribunal will implicate Hezbullah members in the murder of Rafik Hariri.

 

<Threats of violence yet again.  How common from the people of the RELIGION of PEACE.  >
