It is not looking good for the Dorktator and Gorilla Boy:
German Judge Detlev Mehlis, head of UN investigating team into Hariri assassination, convinced Syria knew beforehand of Hizbullah plot against Israel. â€˜Hizbullah would certainly not risk taking the kind of action it has without Syria’s approvalâ€™
German Judge Detlev Mehlis, who was appointed by the UN to head the investigation into the assassination of former Lebanese premier Rafik Hariri, is convinced that Iran and Syria are responsible for aggravating the situation in Lebanon.
Mehlis told the international German network Deutsche Welle that Hizbullah would not act without Syrian approval, especially when the
terror groupâ€™s arms are supplied by Syria. â€œSyria stands by Hizbullah and vice versa. Hizbullah would certainly not risk taking the kind of action it did without Syria’s approval,â€ Mehlis said.
I am becoming more and more convinced that although half the world shrieked “Disproportionate force!” from the second Israel entered Southern Lebanon, the rest of the world was saying, “About damned time.”
It appears that Israel may be good for one more thing: Giving the world an excuse to sanction Iran and Syria.
Despite redeploying most of its forces from Lebanon, Syria is still determined to maintian control over its neighbor country, believes Mehlis, an expert on the dynamics and power politics of the region. This became apparent during the investigation into Haririâ€™s murder, Mehlis said, when undercover Syrian agents interfered with the investigation.
â€œThe Syrian Justice Ministry interfered and frightened witnesses,â€ he revealed.
According to Mehlis, Syriaâ€™s attitude towards Lebanon has not changed in the slightest since it was forced to withdraw its forces under international pressure.
Is it time to open up a “Syria” category on the blog?
