Anti-Syrian Parliment member assassinated in Beiruit..

Again the terrorist regimes of Syria and Iran assassinate political opponents in Lebanon.

From USA Today 

A powerful bomb killed a pro-government Parliament member and four others Wednesday in a Christian suburb east of the Lebanese capital, security officials said.

The blast targeted Antoine Ghanem, 64, a member of the right-wing Christian Phalange Party, said the officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press.

The Voice of Lebanon radio station, which is owned by the Phalange party, also confirmed Ghanem’s death. The identities of the others killed were not immediately known.

The attack occurred six days before Parliament was scheduled to meet to elect a new president in a deeply divisive vote. Ghanem is the eighth prominent anti-Syrian figure assassinated since 2005, including three lawmakers from the majority, reducing the ruling party’s margin in Parliament.

While the USA Today Article doesn’t mention Iran in its report, amazingly enough the report from AlJazeera did.. Here is the Yahoo/AP News Link which also fails to mention Iran

  1. This is par for the course in Lebanon…while the world castigates Israel at every turn, they turn a blind eye to the injustices perpetrated on behalf of “Allah,” in this case AGAIN, it’s Syria (meddling in Lebanon).

    This is a civil war with Hezbollah and Michael Aoun’s Christians on one side and the Sunnis and the balance of the Christians on the other. Syria supports the first group, and we support the second group.
