In Living Memory of Samir Kassir &Others: Justice


Maybe it's fate, or perhaps it's pure coincidence. A UN International Tribunal for the crimes committed in Lebanon, and the assasination, or attempted assasination of Lebanon's great Men and Women - two years after the assasination of Kassir.

The criminals did not suffice with Politicians, they went out of their way to kill journalists. They did not suffice with killing hope with President Hariri, they wanted to kill conscience, moderation, and free speech with Kassir, Fleihan, Hawi, Hmadhen, Chediack, Murr, Tueni, Jmayel, and perhaps more to come on their bloody list.... A long list of martyrs, and a longer way to go. Still, the day of Justice shall arrive, and Justice shall prevail. If in doubt, where is Saddam Hussein, Milosovitch, and Moboto Sisiko? The Rulers who killed thousands ended up in a cell like common criminals.
Two years on the assasination of Samir Kassir, in his memory, and on the eve of the International Tribunal, we bow in respect, and in pray for power to keep our minds free, and our priorities straight.

Courtesy of Wikipedia:Samir Kassir (سمير قصير in Arabic) (May 5, 1960 – June 2, 2005) was a university professor, journalist and historian born to a Lebanese Palestinian father and a Syrian mother. He held both Lebanese and French nationality. A prominent left-wing activist, he was a strong advocate of freedom for the Palestinians, democracy in Lebanon and Syria and a vocal critic of the Syrian presence in Lebanon. He was assassinated on 2 June 2005 and his assailants remain unknown.

Mobutu died in exile.

Good try, though.

This Siniora team government has not found a single murderer not a single one. This despite the "help" of the FBI and French secret service (which by the way is strange, where is our independance?)
What is it waiting for to resign and let a clean govenment replace it and start really governing this country?
