Hezbollah did not call for a no-fly zone over Libya

Good news! I now have it from two separate and well-informed sources: Hezbollah did not participate in any decision concerning the official position of Lebanon on the issue of the no-fly zone. Furthermore, I was told only a statement published on the website http://www.english.moqawama.org/ can be seen as an official Hezbollah statement. This makes me wonder whose instructions the Lebanese representative at the UNSC was following when he decided to

The Saker’s Q&A with “Lebanese Christian” about Hezbollah-Christian relations

Today it is my real pleasure to submit to you the text of a Q&A I have had with “Lebanese Christian”.  One of the most misunderstood aspects of the socio-political reality of Lebanon is the fact that Hezbollah is very open to Christians as long as they are real Lebanese patriots and not proxies for Israel and the USA. I asked “Lebanese Christian” to comment on some of the aspects

The Hariri Assassination – Israel’s Fingerprints Surface

By Rannie Amiri for South Lebanon In the Middle East, the link between political machinations, espionage and assassination is either clear as day, or clear as mud. As for the yet unsolved case of the February 2005 murder of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, mud might be giving way to daylight. A crackdown on Israeli spy rings operating in Lebanon has resulted in more than 70 arrests over the past

Israeli troop movements

Several sources are reporting Israeli troop concentrations at the border with Lebanon. That, combined with very bellicose statements of at least one Israeli minister are resulting in rumors about an imminent Israeli attack on Lebanon (Netanyahu already denied any such intentions). I do not believe that the Israelis are about to attack Lebanon, and most definitely not with a ground operation. The only circumstance in which I think that could

Challenging the Dahiya Doctrine

By Brenda Heard “Part of the functions of reports such as this is to attempt, albeit in a very small way, to restore the dignity of those whose rights have been violated in the most fundamental way of all –the arbitrary deprivation of life. It is important that the international community asserts formally and unequivocally that such violence to the most basic fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals should not

What Really Happened in the Lebanese Elections?

By ESAM AL-AMIN for South Lebanon Blog Since the Lebanese parliamentary elections on June 7, the mainstream media have declared that the results of the elections clearly show that Hizbollah and its coalition partners have suffered a “crushing defeat.” Some, led by the New York Times and cable news outlets, went even further, suggesting that the Cairo address by President Barack Obama was what made the difference, tilting the elections

Musings on yesterday’s elections in Lebanon in France

It sure looks like yesterday was a good day for the USraelian empire as some of its most obsequious stooges won the elections they were participating in: Sarkozy, Cohen-Bendit, Hariri, Siniora and Jumblatt all did unexpectedly well. Not only that, but the Far Right also did rather well in the EU elections – always a good thing for Washington. In France, the Anti-Zionist Party’s list lead by Dieudonne only got
