3 state employees arrested on suspicion of spying for Israel

Three “high-ranking state employees” were reportedly arrested Friday night on suspicion of spying for Israel, according to El-Shark newspaper

El-Shark ‘s report came after similar information was broadcast on OTV.

Meanwhile, MP Marwan Hamadeh categorically denied rumors over accusations that he was also spying for the Israeli Mossad.

Based on articles 274-278, if convicted the 3 employees could face the death sentence

More than 70 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for the Israeli Mossad since April 2009, when the government launched a nationwide crackdown on alleged rings.

    With all the spies israel has in lebanon that we know of isn’t easy for israel to have executed the assassination of Hariri? the Hariri assassination was executed with very sophisticated technology which HA didn’t have access to at the time, technology which we all know israel had, kill Hariri. Israels list of accomplishments from the successfulassassination of Hariri, drive syria out of lebanon, check! divide the lebanese nation, check! cause mass paranoia between the lebanese community, check!

      anti-zion theres wat too many walls on our site. there was evidence at the time that hariri’s car had to be jammed and no ones got that technology but israel.

      they used it when they bombed iraqi nuclear plant as they jammed the radars flying thru various countries and joey and sri lanka, it seems you guys dont get out much.

      why would syria have spies when various party members are syrian allies.

      berri can just hand over the parliament minutes to syrians openly. theres nothing to be covert here. Aoun visits syria every other day, you think he can give something to them if they ask openly?

      what the hell is so scary about syria at this time when assad came as a guest to our contry. embassies are opening and econmic ties are being forged, border crossings are being dealt with.

      no idea why syria would be a bigger evil than israel when it just killed some of our LAF men for a freaking tree.

    Human rights activists slam Assad

    During a decade in power, Syrian President Bashar Assad has not delivered on promises of greater freedoms or rights for his people, Human Rights Watch said on Friday.

    Assad “has not delivered on his promises to increase public freedoms and improve his government’s human rights record during a decade in power,” HRW said in a report on the eve of the anniversary of his accession.

    “Whether President Assad wanted to be a reformer but was hampered by an entrenched old guard or has been just another Arab ruler unwilling to listen to criticism, the outcome for Syria’s people is the same: No freedom, no rights,” HRW’s Sarah Leah Whitson said in a statement.

    The report noted that in his July 17, 2000, inaugural speech, Assad had spoken of the need for creative thinking, transparency and democracy.

    “However, the period of tolerance that followed Assad’s ascent to power was short-lived, and Syria’s prisons quickly filled again with political prisoners, journalists and human rights activists,” the report said.

    “Syria’s security agencies, the feared mukhabarat, detain people without arrest warrants and torture with complete impunity,” said the report, entitled “A Wasted Decade: Human Rights in Syria during Bashar Assad’s First Ten Years in Power.”

    ‘Kurds denied basic rights’

    It said that two years after prison authorities and military police had used firearms to quell a riot at the Saya prison outside Damascus in July 2008, “Syrian authorities have not revealed the fate of at least 42 detainees, at least nine of whom are believed to have been killed.”

    “Censorship is prevalent and extends to popular websites such as Facebook, YouTube, and Blogger,” the report by the New York-based organization added.

    It noted that rights violations included repression of Syria’s large Kurdish minority.

    “The Kurdish minority, estimated to be 10% of the population, is denied basic group rights, including the right to learn Kurdish in schools or celebrate Kurdish festivals, such as Nowruz (Kurdish New Year).”

    The report said an estimated 300,000 stateless Kurds are waiting for citizenship, despite repeated promises by Assad.

    “Whatever hopes Syrians might have had for a new era of political openness under Assad’s rule have been dashed,” said Whitson.

    He “has no excuse to continue to stall on needed reforms to his country’s human rights record,” she added, noting that US and European officials had been reaching out to Syria and had held regular meetings with the Syrian president.

    “Now that he has emerged from his internationally imposed isolation, he should open up his country.”

    anti-zion when the mossad killed i forgot who in dubai where are those killers i ask?

    nobody has even bothered to do anything. all the countries whose passports got forged complained for a little bit then it all got swept under the rug.

    our own harper like a whore couldnt evenn look netanyahu in the eye as he stared to the floor and under his breath said how canada was disapponted with israels handling of the flotilla incident.

    i do believe that if you rewind the tapes slowly, you could see that he was actually convulsing cos he couldn’t believe that he was saying those words.

    being that i’m a member of the council of canadians i can tell you how much harper has sold of canada to US markets but the council of canadians here is always making sure that we keep this evil man in check though he doesnt listen to anybody.

    In case you’ve forgotten, unfortunately it was Israel’s strategy that it would be better to have Syria occupying Lebanon for the sake of stability.
