Search words: hariri\'s game

international / crime and justice / other press Wednesday May 30, 2007 23:33 by knowing i did my best to tell you about the blue white flash   text 2 comments (last - thursday april 30, 2009 11:40)
Lebanon might have caught readers attention again in the last ten days. An awful lot has happened since the Valentine Weekend 2005 murder of "Mr Lebanon" Rafik Hariri, an event of such importance that it prompted a series of 9 new stories with constant ongoing analysis of one of the pivotal states as preparation for any geopolitical strategic understanding.

Lebanon returned to our telly screens as a long standing refugee enclave of Palestinians was targetted by the Lebanese army amidst calls to "take out the terrorists" who apparantly use Lebanon to attack Western interests. Tonight the UN security council has voted to bring the murder (or magnicide if you will) of Hariri to the International tribunal in The Hague.

Israeli armed forces crossed the border into their northern neighbour Lebanon in the last 36 hours.
This illegal incursion follows entry of IDF forces into the occupied Palestinian territories of the last week.

Hezbollah in a press conference has called for "discussions", warned of "surprises" if the "enemy attacks" and wants "prisoner exchange" and hinted at "linking this crises to the plight of their Palestinian brothers". The leader of Hezbollah also rejected Israeli blusters that the IDF would return the country of which they now form a democratically elected government of "returning Beirut to 20 years ago".

The rest of the "hariri\'s game" series which covers Lebanese politic development since the asassination of Hariri on Saint Valentine's Day 2005.

There were lots of elections in 2005, only a few of which got covered on indymedia ireland. But because the idea of democracy really took off so much, I wasn't able to write a "how did they vote or "not vote"" article as had in previous years been attempted.

Just a quick recap - listed here.
{My personal favourite was the Andorran general election.}

"The UN probe led by German prosecutor Detlev Mehlis named as suspects in the February 14 killing members in the inner circle of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, including his brother-in-law.
The report said Foreign Minister Farouq al-Shara gave investigators false information and accused top pro-Syrian Lebanese officials of a major role in the killing, with suspicion cast even on President Emile Lahoud.
Syria dismissed the charges as "far from the truth", while Lahoud denied them and indicated he would not be driven from office despite calls for him to resign. read full story / add a comment

Prime Minister Fouad Siniora of Lebanon, elected to the job since the Valentine's Day crises of 2005 and 4 internationally observed seperate Sunday elections has appointed a member of Hezbolah to the cabinet.

The new government has 15 ministers loyal to Hariri the 2nd, heir and son to Hariri the first and five loyal to a pro-Syria Shi'ite Muslim coalition (just like you always got in Iraq) that includes Hizbollah (one of the many thousands of terrorist groups but sort of rare these days in not being directly connected to the search for WMD and introduction of democracy to Babalon).
The cabinet also has three members loyal to Lahoud (fancy that) and an independent (bless him).

it has been a little over 100 days since Hariri a lebanese billionaire died along with several of his employees in a car bomb attack in Beirut in the early hours of Saint Valentine's day.
He left to his few sons business concerns worth approximately 2 billion euros in various sectors from primary (construction and quarrying) to services,

Today at 14h00 local time a continuous camp will start on Martyr's square, combining elements of the anti-Syrian groups with members of the opposition, with other trans-national democracy groups.

Is this a can of worms?
Is this a peaceful intifada?

It has now been less than a month since the billionaire former president of the Lebanon died in a car bomb.
No formal investigation has established the guilty party or even type of explosive used despite requests for such an investigation from the UN, public, EU and USA.
In the meantime thousands of pro-democracy protesters demanded that Syria leave, (in honour of a previous UN resolution) and late last Saturday the Syrian government bowed to this pressure- read full story / add a comment

In what is being soundbyted as "a peaceful intifada" and a "cedar revolution" the complete government of the Lebanon last night handed in their papers,keys, and whispered to each other about not using big cars anymore.

the "very dramatic move" came after a days protest in "martyr's square". Most people don't want to be martyrs, they want to live peaceful lives and participate in their society, and also live free of the wickedness of war, corruption, lies, indoctrination, criminality of any politicians, the foolishness of the proud, any of the things they have long laboured under the yokes of. They do not want to live or their children to live in fear of intimidation, exile, poverty, inequality. They want normal lives.

When all your government resign you may safely consider you have taken an important step in the right direction. Anarcho-syndicalists approve of this type of thing. read full story / add a comment

The Lebanon is familiar to many Irish, the former French posession saw the Irish army serve with the United Nations in peace keeping operations throughout the late XX century.

In that time, one man came to epitomise Lebanese politics and further became the richest man in the state. Rafik al Hariri was assasinated in a car bomb on St Valentine's day 2005. read full story / add a comment
