The murdered Father´s club bow down to Syria

Saad Hariri and Walid Jumblatt, the leaders of the Cedar Revolution, whose fathers were all but certainly killed by Syria, are paying homage to Damascus.

Saad Hariri and Walid Jumblatt will back Syria, who were responsible for the murderds of their fathers.

Perhaps the leading factor in the March 14 leadership’s decision to return to Damascus appears to be Saudi Arabia’s equivocating.

To mitigate the threat posed by Tehran, Saudi Arabia is attempting to pry Syria away from its 30-year strategic ally, and the first Saudi down-payment in this ill-advised gambit has been its Lebanese allies.

At least in part, this dramatic change in policy is related to the perceived U.S. weakness on Iran. Absent Saudi confidence that Washington will prevent a nuclear Iran, Riyadh is hedging.

My comment:

Kamal Jumblatt

Kamal Jumblatt was the father of the Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt. Senior was assassinated on March 16th 1977. Now Junior wants to side with Syria, who assassinated his father.

Rafik Hariri was assassinated by Syria 14th of February 2005.

Rafik Hariri

His son Prime Minister Saad Hariri paid a visit to Damascus to express his fealty to Syrian President Bashar Assad. Days later, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki visited Beirut and began giving the Lebanese government its new marching orders.

Former Islamic enemies are re-aligning them self. Again the common enemy is the Jewish state of Israel.
