Lebanon's Druze leader Walid Jumblatt speaks during a news conference at his residence in BeirutProgressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt decried the assassination threats that media reports attributed to the Islamic State group by stressing that he “depends on God and fate,” and describing the current situation as dark days of ignorance and backwardnes.

“Whatever the threat may be, be it from local or external parties, we depend on God and fate at this age,” Jumblatt said.

“In these dark days, during which the trends of ignorance and backwardness are aggravating, we are in dire need for deepening our knowledge, which alone can confront bigotry and intolerance,” he added in a clear reference to the Islamic State and extremism prevailing within the Sunni Shiite sects .

“Only through learning we can confront ignorance and only through knowledge we can fight the feeble minds and the depraved souls,” Jumblatt went on to say.

    But two months after the Hariri convoy was destroyed, Israeli-manufactured weapons began to appear near the homes and neighborhoods of politicians in Lebanon. On April 14, 2005 UPI reported that Lebanese security forces had discovered six Hebrew-inscribed mortar shells manufactured by Israel on a deserted beach near the the southern Lebanese village of Ghaziyeh.

    Similar missiles and dynamite were also found along a road frequented by Hezbollah officials, and on December 10, 2005 four anti-tank rockets attached to wires ready for detonation were found planted on the road leading to MP Walid Jumblatt’s Muktara Palace.
