The two smart pants who wrote this article for Haaretz made the following mistake: "Moreover, why would Israel embark on a complex and enormously risky attempt to kill Hariri - who at the time was the most moderate candidate for Lebanon's presidency ." As a SECULAR Sunni Muslim, Rafik Hariri could only become PM, the president has to be Maronite Christian. Please remember that Syria had made him PM several times during the 1990s and 2000s. He was, like all Lebanese leaders (including his son, Saad, now) co-opted by Syria. Syria had much to lose (as it did in 2005) and nothing to gain from assassinating him. Focusing ONLY on Syria and Nasrallah (who had a working relationship with Rafik) was bad "police work." Israel is a stake-holder in Lebanon, and at least the possibility that it did it should have been researched. The report that will come later from the Inernational court would unlikely provide more concrete evidence than Nasrallah's. Also, why the two authors never mentioned the spies in the Lebanese telecommunications and their possible role in framing Hizballah?
