Western intelligence warned Hariri of death plot, report

Hariri resignsWestern intelligence agencies warned resigned Lebanese prime minister Saad al-Hariri of an assassination plot against him, Asharq al-Awsat newspaper reported on Sunday. It cited unnamed sources close to Hariri.

However, Major General Abbas Ibrahim, head of Lebanon’s General Security and who is closely asssociated with the Iranian-backed Hezbollah militant group said he had no information about an assassination plot against political figures in Lebanon. The army also said it had not uncovered any such plots.

Hariri announced his resignation on Saturday from Riyadh, saying he believed there was an assassination plot against him and accusing Iran, Saudi Arabia’s arch-rival, and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of sowing strife in the Arab world.

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz received Hariri on Monday, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

“King Salman met the resigned Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri a short while ago,” a presenter on Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television said.

Hariri’s resignation toppled a coalition government that included Shi‘ite Muslim group Hezbollah, thrusting Lebanon back into the frontline of the Saudi-Iranian regional rivalry and risking an open-ended political crisis.

State news agency SPA carried pictures of Hariri and King Salman greeting each other and then sitting together in a palatial setting.

Hariri’s surprise resignation in a televised speech aired on al-Arabiya TV had drawn criticism and was met with controversy in Beirut. Some have even questioned whether Hariri’s resignation was voluntary.

“We are living in a climate similar to the atmosphere that prevailed before the assassination of martyr Rafik al-Hariri. I have sensed what is being plotted covertly to target my life,” Hariri said.

Rafik al-Hariri was killed in a 2005 Beirut bomb attack that pushed his son Saad into politics and set off years of turmoil. A U.N.-backed tribunal has charged five Hezbollah members over the killing. Hezbollah denies involvement.

Lebanese Justice Minister Salim Jreissati said on Monday that Lebanon’s president would not take any steps regarding Hariri’s resignation before Hariri returns from abroad, stressing that “the resignation must be voluntary.”

President Michel Aoun said earlier on Monday that political leaders had been responsive to calls for calm, strengthening security and national unity after Hariri’s shock resignation.

  1. I think the western intelligence will tell Hariri first about the plot and not General Abbas Ibrahim. This is natural. If the western intelligence told Abbas first , Hariri may never have been able to reach Saudi Arabia

    1. Hariri’s resignation is part of the purge on-going in KSA. Nothing elseS

      1. You got sources in Saudi Arabia, moron? Scores of upstanding Nazi “non-Arabs” there working tirelessly to destroy that Wahhabi-Zionist cesspool keep you apprised of the current developments? Or did LaRouche/Ibrahim Al Amine whisper this into your ear?

        1. Has your rectum prolapsed again Eurotrash Zionist vermin?

          Mansour bin Muqrin and seven Saudi officials died in a helicopter crash yesterday.

          Abdul Aziz bin Fahd died while being arrested.

          It’s out there. Search for it online.

          1. If you had even one single fully functioning brain cell, my rectally challenged friend, the senseless idiocy of your “comments” would have been evident to you. But then, of course, you wouldn’t be you. 🙂

          2. What on earth are you still raving about eurotrash vermin? You asked about the source, I told you it’s out there.

      2. Wrong… nothing to do with the purge and contrary to the fake news Hezbollah and its supporters are trying to fabricate Hariri is not in jail in Saudi Arabia. The king received him yesterday at his palace

        1. Where do you read me write Hariri was/in in jail?

        2. “contrary to the fake news Hezbollah and its supporters are trying to fabricate Hariri is not in jail in Saudi Arabia.”

          That’s what the moronic “Angry Arab” from Al Akhbar is claiming on his sewer blog.

          1. I am neither angry nor Arab.

            90+% of the people in Lebanon descend from the Canaanites/Phoenicians.

            Arabs are from the Arabian peninsula.

            Please put history in perspective. Hezbollah was an effect of the Israeli cause and in direct relation to their illegal invasion/occupation of the south of Lebanon which resulted in upwards of 20,000 civilians deaths.

            Hezbollah ws nothing more than Islamic opportunists inside an easy mark called Lebanon.

          6. As I said, you need to put history in perspective and be accountable for what Israel did.

            Okay, they won the battles.

          8. Who’s “they”?

            Israel retreated after 20 years of occupation. Israeli military officials called it a “humiliating defeat”. In 2006, Israel failed to reach any of its military objectives.

            You know damn well, so stop playing juvenile games.

            How did Hezbollah fare? How long did Hezbollah rebuild?

          10. No games. I had to ask because Israelis never won a battle against Hezbollah to date.

          11. Rudy1947 Avatar

            Yes, s2pid little games.

            Then why did not Hezbollah counter attack? Why did Hezbollah go quiet for so long?

          12. No games.

            Hezbollah never attacked Israel but repelled it on both occasions successfuly.

            Sure, sure. Them Hizbillies are as pure as the wind driven snow. Take your BS to the local Porta Pottie where it belongs.

          14. Your tantrum changes nothing to reliant: Israel didn’t win any battle against Hezbollah.

            Over and out.

            ESPECIALLY when the equation of power balance and military spent is taken into consideration. David (Hezbollah) vs. Goliath (Israel).

          17. It is baffling. The Maronite’s I know, that fought in the civil war, don’t like Israel but when asked about the Israeli occupation in the South of Lebanon say it was not bad and the Syria occupation of Lebanon was way worse. Yet Hezbollah can not wait to bring Assad back into the fold.
            As far as the last war goes, I distinctly remember Hezbullah media campaign crying to the world and the UN to call off the Israeli military after a month. You believe whatever reality you are told to believe, but Israel was not kicked out of Lebanon. They stay quite awhile after until there was a satisfactory contract made that would keep Hezb out of the Southern boarder. and mandated Hezbollah disarm. All of which Hezbullah reneged on. It will be much worse next time as now the Lebanese government is in Iran’s back pocket.

          18. I can understand your desperation in pulling never ending non sequitur but please, don’t lie. IsraHell’s occupation – which resulted in the death of upwards of 20,000 civilians – was not any different than the Syrian one. Both of which were orchestrated by Kissinger. Israeli military officials called it a “humiliating defeat”.

            IsraHell failed to reach its objectives in 1980-2000 and again in 2006. I have already given you the chronology of the war IsraHell wages on HeBollah and Lebanon in 2006: IsraHell, with its IAF, IDF and 15,000+ army reserve troops failed to dislodge Hezbollah. This was confirmed by IsraHell’s Mossad.

            You, Count de Non Sequitur, refuse to acknowledge reality. May I suggest some hemorroidal relief in suppository form.

            He’s insufferable, j’ai bloqué l’idiot .

          22. “20,000 civilians deaths.” Israel has nothing on Assad and Iran. Look at the numbers, Iran “purged over 30,000 of its own people in the ’80 because of the paranoid death cult that took power. And with Assad, the numbers are 10 fold. I think you are looking at the wrong bad guys. Or was Iran justified to kill so many of its own people in some twisted way?
            But you can deny it all you like, but they should also be accountable, hypocrite.

          23. This is about IsraHell but sure Count De Non-Sequitur; keep pulling silly non sequitur arguments.

          24. Just making a simple comparison to counter your feeble claims. The numbers should prove who are the worse leaders. Israel sucks at genocide, they need to study Arab and farsi to get it right. Other than that your claims are underwhelming.

          25. There was no comparison. I have you a number, where are yours?

            Most importantly, there was no “civil war”. IsraHell illegally invaded and occupied to then go back “home” (read: someone else’s stolen lands) humiliated like the filthy vermin they are.

            Sure. The Fat Sack of Shit’s ™ forefathers were Phoenician pirates/Canaanite highway robbers. And His Royal Senility Michel Aoun is the direct descendant of Napoleon’s idiot brother Joseph. Hence the French name, the vanity, and the low IQ. 🙂

          Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd, a business partner of former Lebanese PM Hariri, dies during arrest.

          The Saudi purges continue to become increasingly brutal as
          it appears that the Hariri resignation had everything to do with internal Saudi matters.

          The sense of regional instability and disarray was further compounded by the unexpected resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri, also a Saudi citizen and a member of the same business circle as the men arrested, staged from Riyadh.

    “Major General Abbas Ibrahim, head of Lebanon’s General Security and who is closely asssociated with the Iranian-backed Hezbollah militant group said he had no information about an assassination plot against political figures in Lebanon.”
    Notice it said he Ibrahim is closely associated with Hezbollah and who was appointed by them. Is going to inform Hariri that Hezbollah is going to kill you. Of course he won’t? Even if this is not true. where are all the perpetrators who committed the crimes in Lebanon against March 14th figure? where are the ones who killed Lieutenant Eid who was very close to uncovering the lots of evidence against Hezbollah. How come none of these people caught. Yet the army and hezbollah with a speed of lightening capturing Israeli spies and anyone who tries to attack Hezbollah. Since 2005 none of perpetrators who killed Hariri and more than 30 figures none of these bastards got caught. Can Nassrallah explain this? Of course he will twist things in trying to cover up his crimes against Lebanese. The agent of Iran and Assad will not budge or even think of Lebanon first. I feel like I am talking to the walls here.

          Yup. What’s Lebanon going to do about? After all Iran and Hezbollah have been doing the same thing.

          1. Lebanon doesn’t have to do anything about it.

            As far the “same thing” goes, the wars in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, etc have all been instigated by the same entities – which neither Iran nor Hezbollah are part of.

          3. Is this where we high-5?

      2. The Press TV has been criticized for “anti-Americanism” and “uncritical embrace of conspiracy theories”. For British journalist Nick Cohen the station is “a platform for the full fascist conspiracy theory of supernatural Jewish power” and for commentator Douglas Murray it is the “Iranian government’s propaganda channel”.
        In a 2011 interview on Press TV, George Galloway, Press TV’s UK presenter and former British MP, responded to Cohen and others, stating that Press TV “challenges the prevailing orthodoxy” by providing an outsider perspective on “the truth and a voice for the otherwise voiceless”…..

        The BBC journalist Linda Pressly has described Press TV as pro-Palestinian, opposed to sanctions against Iran, and critical of Western foreign policy.
        Nick Ferrari, a former presenter of one of Press TV’s shows, told The Times that Press TV’s news coverage had been “reasonably fair” until the 2009 election – but not any longer.

        In July 2013 Press TV and other Iranian channels were removed from several European and American satellites, allegedly because of the Iran sanctions, even though an EU spokesperson told the channel that these sanctions do not apply to media.

        In November 2012, the Hong Kong-based AsiaSat took Iranian channels off air in East Asia, and in October 2012 Eutelsat and Intelsat stopped broadcasting several Iranian satellite channels, though the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting managed to resume broadcasts after striking deals with smaller companies that are based in other countries.
