Samir Qassir’s two heroes were: Jamal Abdul Nasser and Yasir Arafat.

Enough said.

    Who told you that ? I knew Samir Qassir and he hated Arafat.

    His wife Gisele Khoury. Did he say that personally? It would be a pretty big mistake for her to make.

    i agree with Sasa..
    Qassir’s Arabism is mistakenly understood as the enlightened one, it isn’t.
    his enlightment means to fight Israe, right, and USA rigt, but in a very westerner way!
    check out his last 25 articles he wrote before he was asssasinated, his hatred to Assadians, is similar to Jumblat and the Lebanese Troops’.
    Qassir is anti-Muqama in Lebanon, but Pro in Palestine..i think thus he isn’t WITH resistance as a value, but AGAINST Islamis resistance, even it is resistance.
    as a comunist, and as the rest of our communist “elite” he has issues with Islam. Islamophobe.
