Lebanon blames "pro-Syrian" group for bus bombings…Syria says it has jailed members of the group

March 14th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Important lesson for Lebanon’s politicians here.

When you blame the usual scapegoat, make sure you know a little bit of background.

Lebanon’s Interior Minister Hassan As-Sabaa yesterday said Syria was behind the bus bombing in Lebanon last month which killed three people.

Lebanon has arrested four members of Fateh Al-Islam. What As-Sabaa didn’t realise was that Fateh Al-Islam is anti-Syria, and funded by Hariri.

And now a new revelation – Syrian Interior Minister Bassam Abdel Majeed says they’ve already jailed one of the group’s leaders, Shaker Al-Absi. Syria says the group plans to carry out terrorist attacks in Syria.

He was since released, and Syria now has an arrest warrant out for him.

Shaker al-Absi, a Jordanian of Palestinian origin, used to be in contact with the late Al Qaeda leader in Iraq Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.

    “What As-Sabaa didn’t realise was that Fateh Al-Islam is anti-Syria, and funded by Hariri.”

    The naivety is admirably cute :-)

    You mean Hariri felt like pulling a joke on his own minister and decided not to tell him he is funding the terrorist group?

    Or did he tell him that but Sabaa completely forgot about it and went on TV and implicated his own party leader without paying attention?

    But Sasa caught them in the act so they could not pull through their otherwise elaborate and impeccably devilish plan hehehehe
