Lebanese Government Collapses

It is being reported from Lebanon this morning that the Lebanese government has collapsed after 11 ministers resigned, and Hezbollah pulled out of the governing coalition, leaving the coalition without a parliamentary majority.

The reported cause of the Hezbollah withdrawal from the governing coalition was the refusal by Prime Minister Saad Hariri to convene a cabinet meeting to discuss the actions of the STL, the tribunal investigating the assassination of Rafik Hariri, father of the current Prime Minister. The collapse of the Lebanese government comes while Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri is in Washington DC meeting with US officials.

As usual with anything involving Lebanese politics, the situation is horribly complex, and difficult for outsiders to understand. Lies bombard us from all sides, and we can only guess what pressures are being applied behind the scenes. But there is ample evidence that the tribunal in question has been corrupted and grossly manipulated by both the US and Israel. Witnesses suddenly changing their testimony, witnesses being allowed to testify in secret, these things are the evidences of falsehood which have not been concealed from the public eye.

Walid Jumblatt, leader of the Lebanese Druze, has blamed the collapse of the government on "occult forces", whatever the hell he means by that.

But we can be certain, my friends, that is extremely grim news. Not only does it mean that the Zionists have won this campaign, it means a very real possibility of a return to factional fighting within Lebanon.
