Once more with a vengance


While a Syrian trained, funded and supported group called “Fatah Al Islam” is spreading chaos in Tripoli (in northern Lebanon) Lebanese politicians are still bickering and infighting…

Yesterday morning the Lebanese police, following an investigation of a bank robbery, clashed with a very well armed group of pseudo Muslim fanatics. Shortly after, the army intervened after ten of its soldiers were kidnapped and then killed in cold blood. A full fledged battle followed and “Fatah Al Islam” were pushed back in the Palestinian refugee camp they were initially based in.

Since day break today, the army has been pounding the Syrian backed group inside the Palestinian camp of “al bedaoui” close to Tripoli. If it was up to me I would have given the order to enter the camp and eradicate there murderers once and for all…

Unfortunately, Hezbollah and its allies have a different agenda. Yesterday the divine party issued a statement saying that the situation should be resolved politically and “Fatah Al Islam” members should walk free to regaining their strength in order to commit further atrocities, such as “ain alaq” a couple of month ago when several innocent Lebanese were killed in a bus blast.

Bottom line is the situation must be resolved in a matter of days. Otherwise this might spread all over Lebanon to other Palestinian camps, like “ain el helew” in Saida or in the Bekaa too. The army must hit these criminals fast and strong and totally eradicate their power base in the camp, even if Hezbollah don’t like that. The country’s fate is at stake, on one side chaos and civil war looms on the other an uncertain future…
