Blaming Syria

June 5th, 2007 · No Comments · Lebanon

EDB in Beirut, writes about the arrest of a suspect in the Beirut bus bombing:

“Suddenly a commotion ensued, as four plain clothes men handcuffed a young man– perhaps twenty-years old– and escorted him to a white civilian car with Saida license plates. They shoved him into the backseat and closed the door. He sat in the backseat, straining his neck to peer out of the rearview window, terrified. A group of 10 to 12 men stood around the car. Occasionally they opened the door of the car and said something to him. I walked over and asked one of the younger men, who was wearing a T-shirt with “Jesus Soldiers” blazoned across the back, why they arrested the young man. He declined to respond, but his friend replied, matter-of-factly, “Because he’s Syrian.””
