"U.S. President Barack Obama expressed solidarity with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri in talks on Wednesday amid the collapse of his coalition government in Beirut." - Haaretz// When the UN passed the resolution on establishing the special criminal court for the Hariri assassination, it was believed that Syria was responsible. Without this belief, who would have established an international court for the killing of a Former PM, especially in a land where politicians, including Presidents, are assassinated right and left?? Unfortunately, it appears now to have been an internal Lebanese job. At the very least, the push for western justice, aided and abetted by Obama and Hillary even after the implications became clear, has caused the fall of a western-oriented government (of Hariri the son) and its replacement by a Syrian-oriented group. Excellent job, Obama. My advice to the UN: Just abolish the special Court, announce the result of the investigation, and cross your fingers. As long as Hizballah can maintain deniability, things will not boil over. May Hariri rest in peace, and may Allah take care of the murderers as He has been doing in Lebanon for a long time now (by employing the pre-western method of blood avengers). Every culture has its own ways to serve justice.
