Poll – 78% Arabs believe Israel behind Hariri’s murder

“It’s interesting – but not surprising – to note that in all the words written and uttered about the Kennedy assassination, Israel’s intelligence agency, the Mossad, has never been mentioned,” Paul Findley, former Congressman for 22 years, in The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, March 1992.

A poll conducted by jazeera.net during a period of three days, revealed that 78% of the 18,132 Arab participants believe that the evidences presented by Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah are enough to accuse Israel of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri’s assassination. However, 21% of participants believed that those evidences are not enough.

Rafik Hariri, former Prime Minister of Lebanon (1992-98 and 2000-2004) was assassinated in Beirut on February 14, 2005. Like the 9/11 – within hours, Washington, Paris and Tel Aviv blamed Damascus for the crime. The idea was to get 14,000 Syrian troops from Lebanon which had become a thorn in Israeli design on Southern Lebanon.

On July 21, Fidel Castro warned the world about the US-Israel evil designs on Islamic Republic, Syria and Lebanon.

On August 9, 2010 – Hizbullah Secretary General, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallh presented tangible proof on Israeli involvement in the assassination of Rafik Hariri. The evidence show footage of Israeli surveillance of the site where Rafik Hariri was killed later and the records which show that Zionist leaders had been trying to convince Rafik Hariri since 1993 that Hizbullah wants to assassinate him.

Sheikh Nasrallah reiterated that he doesn’t trust the international tribunal. He claimed that Hizbullah’s enemies have already spent US$500 million to distort the image of his organization. Hizbullah is Lebanon’s largest organization involved in social works and rebuilding country’s infrastructure. It’s political wing is partner in the current Unity government and its military wing is the only Arab militia which has defeated Israel Occupation force (IOF), not once but twice (in 2000 and 2006).

Sheik Nasrallah offered his full co-operation if the PM Saad Hariri decide to appoint a national commission to investigate the assassination of his father, Rafik Hariri.

Mohammed Fneish, the cabinet minister belonging to Hizbullah, said that his organization has no faith in the credibility of the UN Tribunal, but that they will turn in the evidence in any event.
