Amr Moussa links current developments in Lebanon to Hariri’s assassination

Three years after former Secretary-General of the Arab League Amr Moussa published the first part of his biography, his second book entitled, “The Years of the Arab League”, will soon be released by Dar El-Shorouk.


The 574-page book consists of 19 chapters in which Moussa reveals the secrets of his 10-year tenure at the Arab League (2001-2011), which was marked with major events in the Arab world.

Starting Saturday, Asharq Al-Awsat will publish seven episodes of Moussa’s memoirs. The first part focuses on the political crisis in Lebanon, which began with the call by Hezbollah and its Maronite ally – the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) – for the resignation of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora’s government, leading to the Doha Agreement in 2008.

Moussa recounts: “On February 14, 2005, I was in my office at the Arab League preparing to travel to Aden to attend the first meeting of the Economic and Social Council of the Arab League outside its headquarters, which was to be inaugurated by Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh. I was watching Al-Jazeera, which suddenly announced a huge explosion in Beirut, in which Prime Minister Rafik Hariri might have been targeted. I surfed satellite stations until I saw on Al-Arabiya channel the news of Rafik Hariri’s death along with 21 other people.

I asked my office director to arrange my travel to Lebanon immediately, and I called the Yemeni Foreign Minister, Abu Bakr al-Qirbi, and told him that I would not be able to attend because of what happened, and that I would go to Lebanon.

President Ali Abdullah Saleh contacted me shortly after, stressing the need for me to come to Yemen; but I apologized, saying that the assassination of Rafik Hariri was an Arab calamity and a very dangerous development.

On the same day, I traveled to Beirut. At Hariri’s palace, I found his two sons Saadeddine and Bahaa. I offered them condolences, and the place was teeming with mourners. I was the first official to arrive from abroad and I stayed in the palace until late at night. The first Arab foreign minister to land in Beirut was Dr. Abu Bakr al-Qirbi, who also did not attend the Aden meeting!

The funeral took place on the second day. Given the deteriorating security situation in Beirut at this time, my dear friend, Speaker Nabih Berri, placed me under the protection of the Parliament’s security guards. It was clear that some leaders of the Sunni community, some Maronite parties and others were blaming Syria for the assassination.

Some of them pointed at Hezbollah, but basically, all accusations were directed at Damascus. I found that the best thing that the secretary-general of the Arab League could do was to travel to Syria and talk to President Bashar al-Assad.

On the third day, I requested to visit Syria. I went under a very tight protection by the Lebanese government until I reached the Syrian border, where the Syrian guards escorted me directly to the presidential palace. President Bashar received me and we had a very frank conversation.

I told him: Mr. President, I came from Lebanon where feelings are raging after what happened. The death of Rafik Hariri will not pass easily, and the Syrian presence [in Lebanon] has now become under deep scrutiny… Demands are growing for the withdrawal of the Syrian forces…

He told me: I am the first Syrian president to withdraw forces from Lebanon. There were more than 60,000 Syrian soldiers when I came to power. I reduced the number to 35,000, and I am ready to withdraw additional troops… I have no objection to removing all the forces. I asked him: Can I, Mr. President, announce that you have decided to withdraw the Syrian army from Lebanon? He said: Yes, you can announce that, because I told you that I will withdraw the army.

I went out and announced the news, saying that it will be carried out within a specific time frame. My meeting with the president was attended by Foreign Minister Farouk Al-Sharaa, with whom I had lunch. Whenever the withdrawal was raised, Sharaa changed the subject, as if he wanted to ignore the topic. He was not comfortable with the announcement by Syrian journalists that the president had decided to start the withdrawal of the Syrian army from Lebanon.

I left Syria by land to Beirut and returned by plane to Cairo. There, I turned on the radio in the car and heard the BBC: “Syrian officials have denied what the secretary-general of the League of Arab States had said about President Bashar al-Assad’s decision to withdraw his troops from Lebanon.”

I got angry, and immediately called Al-Sharaa. He asked me: What do you want us to do?

I told him to confirm my statement as secretary-general of the League after my encounter with the president, and avoid us getting into a war of statements because I will of course insist on what I mentioned following the meeting.

The Syrian side consented and the president started reducing the forces until their complete withdrawal.

Motives of the assassination

In my interpretation of the motives for Hariri’s assassination, I say: He was a leader capable of exercising power, as he was of a special prestige, whether among the Lebanese Sunnis or among the political, economic and societal circles in Lebanon in general. The presence of a man of Hariri’s stature at the top of the Sunni community cannot be ignored in the face of Hezbollah.

The removal of Hariri from the scene was based on long-term regional calculations, and an important part of what we see in Lebanon today is connected to it.

Between March and June 2006, the Lebanese National Dialogue Conference, with the participation of leaders and influential figures, reached consensus on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and diplomatic relations between Lebanon and Syria, the demarcation of the borders and the possession of weapons outside the Palestinian camps. A serious discussion took place over Hezbollah’s arms, but without being completed.

The national dialogue made us believe that things were heading towards a quiet Lebanese summer, especially on the southern borders with Israel. But on June 12, 2006, a force affiliated with Hezbollah attacked an Israeli military post on the border, resulting in the capture of two Israeli soldiers and the killing of eight others. Israel responded by launching an extensive attack.

The Arab views varied over the escalating steps that Hezbollah had taken against Israel. Egypt and Saudi Arabia considered this an adventure by the party. Here, I must say that managing Arab politics, especially when it comes to a crisis that has far-reaching roots, is always linked to global policies and contradictory interests of major countries, such as the Arab-Israeli conflict.

From this standpoint, the Arab League’s stance was formulated at that time without prejudice to the organization’s firm position regarding one of the origins of the problem, namely the Israeli occupation and its practices that can neither be accepted nor tolerated.

War of statements

Immediately after the outbreak of the aggression, Kuwait, in coordination with me, called for an urgent meeting of the Arab foreign ministers at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo, which took place on July 15, 2006.

The second closed session of the meeting witnessed severe arguments between Prince Saud Al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, and his Syrian counterpart Walid Al-Muallem.

Al-Muallem addressed the participants, saying: “I want to share with you some of my crazy dreams, I say crazy because they don’t match the current Arab or international situations… I dreamed that our meeting would begin with a minute of silence for the souls of the martyrs of Gaza and Lebanon, and that the secretary-general will call for our meeting in Gaza… In all frankness and sincerity… we will not adopt any word that comes out of here that is beneficial to Israel in its aggression against Lebanon, whether in the name of rationality or in the name of emotion…”

Prince Saud asked to respond to Al-Muallem, saying: “I did not know that the policy of brother Walid was driven by dreams… Why is it permitted to use the Lebanese borders to attack Israel and not to use the Golan? Did Israel attack because we issued a statement? Israel attacked because of what Hezbollah had done in the region. What kind of a dream is it when a person believes that rationality and logic were a fatal mistake? These are demonic dreams.”

I observed in silence what was happening, hoping to find an opportunity to interject. At the same time, it was difficult to change the convictions of a large group of Arab League members that Hezbollah’s actions were not motivated by resisting Israeli occupation, but rather part of a political game led by Iran and its regional role that opposes Arabs and their interests.

Arab foreign ministers meeting

During the last week of July 2006, I felt that we needed to block the American-French draft resolution in the Security Council, because it would be unjust to Lebanon.

Hence, I called for a meeting of the Arab foreign ministers at the Grand Serail in Beirut, to be held on August 7. Following speeches in solidarity with Lebanon, the meeting turned into a bitter and long debate between Al-Muallem, who insisted on saluting Hezbollah in the decision of the Arab League Council, and Siniora, who responded by saying: “Arab foreign ministers came here to support a unified Lebanese position.”

The Council reached a set of decisions, including the assignment of the UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Qatari Minister of Foreign Affairs of Qatar to present the Arab viewpoint on the situation in Lebanon.

The meetings in New York ended with the Security Council issuing Resolution 1701 on August 11, 2006. Through a legal reading of the resolution, I say that it is largely biased towards Israel, but it can be considered as better than the previous draft resolutions that were rejected by both Hezbollah and the Lebanese government. According to Hassan Nasrallah, this decision was the least harmful of all the other draft-resolutions.

  1. Ziad , you did a great job at damaging the reputation of your Takiedine family . You come from one of the most prominent, conservative reputable and respected families in Lebanon and here you are in jail . What a shame !

  2. Amr Moussa loves to take credit for things he never did .
    It is the Cedar Revolution that kicked the Syrian army out and it is because of the Cedar Revolution that Aoun dared to come back to Lebanon from exile and later betrayed the revolution and those behind it and aligned himself with the Syrian regime ( that kicked him out of Lebanon ) and its Hezbollah ally

  3. I think Biden will be a fool if he returns to the same agreement that Obama signed in. 2015 . That deal doesn’t exist anymore because it has been violated and continues to be violated by Iran . A new deal should be worked out if the sanctions should be eased , but make no mistake whatever deal Iran signs , Iran will violate because of the aggressive nature of this regime which is destabilizing the entire Middle East

  4. Next time Rudy remember all the 3 Ws
    Wear, Wash and Watch
    I have no idea how clean you are and how often you Washed your hands but you obviously violated Wear ( your mask) and Watch ( your distance)
    In violating at least 2 out of the 3 Ws you have been setting a very bad example and we are all paying for it
    About 3000 people are dying a day from COVID 19 because of the irresponsible way in which your boss and people like you handled the pandemic
    Next time show some responsibility

  5. I don’t think subsidies is the answer. The subsidy program is being abused like everything else in Lebanon . The biggest beneficiaries are Syria and Hezbollah. Syria is getting its fuel , medicine and flour at subsidized prices while Hezbollah is making money out of smuggling the products to Syria through illegal border crossings . The best way is to help directly the Lebanese families who are in need and allow them to access their accounts at the banks

  6. With Nasrallah in Tehran, maybe Michel will not fear as much for his own assassination and, instead, embrace the cabinet being presented to him today as a reasonable way out of the mess foreigners created for Lebanon and the adventure with which corrupt Lebanese thought they could cooperate, to the detriment of all other countrymen. Such a relatively peaceful transition of power would be nice …

    1. I think Nasrallah is hiding in Baabda not Tehran and Aoun is probably serving him breakfast in bed . Aoun is not the decision maker anymore . His corrupt son- in-law Gebran Bassil makes the cabinet and domestic decisions and all other decisions are made by Nasrallah , regardless where he is hiding . Aoun in short is just a figurehead , but pretends to be the Napoleon of the country .

  7. I think the only president in US history that ran America like a third world country is Trump. Every dirty trick used by dictators in 3rd world countries has been used by Trump. So thanks to you America is now like third world country too and you are the one to blame.

  8. Death to Hezbollah.

  9. I can’t think of any third world country that would want Trump as its president . The biggest mistake the Americans ever did was to allow this guy to ever enter the White House . He doesn’t belong there

  10. Stammering/stuttering Joe is a geriatric joke and completely underwhelming weak presidential candidate that is past retirement. America, you have all been punked, the media has programed enough narrative to convince people that Orange man bad. If you don’t like a strong president, It wouldn’t matter if Kermit the Frog was running for the Dems. Half of America voted Biden, IF you refuse to look vote fraud.
    The media is programed not to say anything bad that Biden does or say but there is plenty for America to be worried about, not to mention his son Hunter Biden’s China/CCP and Russian financial connections. But if the Dems can not get more Senate members, they will be powerless for 4 years anyways.

  11. Who does the author supposed is to feel compassion? Who will be caring for Nasrallah in his old age? … While lower in the pecking order of life, isn’t the duty of their master(s) the same? .. and being shirked on account of such responsibility being “unaffordable”?

  12. No elephants need to attend any subsequent meetings between the President and Prime Minister .. but for those two, the room should be empty .. and they should emerge saying and adhering to a singular meeting of the minds … But, can Michel fulfill his duty to all Lebanese?

    Shortly after Trump’s announcement, Israir announced that in a few months it would be operating around 20 flights every week to Morocco.

  14. Melania is the smart one in the family , not Donald . She is realistic and knows he is wasting his time, so she is focusing on life after the White House , while he continues to dream about something he lost for good . Come Jan 20, 2021 at 12:01 pm, he has to be out of the White House

  15. I think Aoun should be charged too and should be on top of the list
    How can the president of a country who has direct control over every inch of the country say ” I had no direct authority over the port, ” specially since he was warned about the danger of an. explosion 2 weeks before it happened

    The Lebanese people should have been named the person of the year and its political elite should have been named “the trash of the year “

  20. I believe that president Aoun and his son-in-law Gebran Bassil are the main. suspects in the port explosion because they knew about the Ammonium Nitrate the moment it entered the port in Sept 2013 through their man Badri Dhaher who was at the time the person in charge of customs manifest . His last position at the port was Director general of port customs. They also reportedly knew Dhaher sold most of the Ammonium to their ally Hezbollah . Dhaher is still in jail

    Trump is no fool he knows where he is going despite the obvious conclusion of the electors he continues to claim victory either he is mad or he is a meglomniac of hitler like proportions and the likes of trump are still alive watch out america for a trump coup which is most likely considering the people he is putting in place in crucial positions of power

  23. I wonder why Trump married 2 immigrant Communist women , Ivana and Melania . Ivana’s dad used to spy on Trump for the Czech Spy agency and Soviet KGB and Melania’s Dad was a Communist party member in Slovenia . Is this why Trump and Putin ( former KGB chief ) are buddies . You don’t see anything about this in the media . Could Trump be a Communist and acting on Putin orders to destroy America and the west . This is worth investigating , because the way he has handled EU, NATO and his defeat and refusal to concede is questionable

  24. Hezbollah’s stated objections are the same as raised in justifying Nasrallah’s harboring of Salim Jamil Ayyash.
    What will the Judiciary decide is most important?

  25. Why is Putin crying ?

  26. “According to analysts Hariri’s visit to Bkirki is a waste oof time , because the Patriarch is reportedly an ally of the president even though he tries from time to time to pretend to be neutral. Rai’s main objective according to analysts is to preserve and defend the position of the president who has to be a Maronite”. This clause nails the real problem of Lebanon ” Sectarianism “… no one really cares about the country

  27. The video is hilarious. You never know . It may be the exact situation on Jan 20 at 12:01 pm , if he refuses to leave the White House

  28. How does a country declare its constitution null and void? When a President refuses his constitutional responsibility and the Legislature refuse to remove him and the Judiciary is incapable of meting-out and enforcing justice among the people, any constitution is not worth the paper it is printed on.

    This is where Nasrallah has intended Lebanon arrive … Democracy bankrupted, Religious Autocracy the elephant in the rooms of government. The Persians and Syrians must be so pleased with themselves.

  29. Great
    Aoun And Hezbollah refuse to have an international investigation and the Lebanese corrupt politicians refuse to appear in front of Lebanese Judge Sawan .
    What happens next
    Corruption breeds corruption and in Lebanon corruption starts at the top in Baabda and underground in the Dhahieh bunkers

  30. Brave man. Not many brave enough to stand up to the murderous Hezb/Iran. Everyone know this was on Hezbollah, but few are brave enough to stand up to these evil fanatics.

    1. You are absolutely right. Finally we have a brave man in Lebanon

      1. This info needs to go viral in Lebanon. There may be other brave leaders and people in Lebanon that are able to stand up to Hezbollah and keep this ball rolling.

        1. In 2013 ( the year the ammonium nitrate was shipped to Lebanon ) Iran produced more of this chemical than anytime in its history, while in 2012 it produced about 10,000 tons in 2013 it produced over 10 times more 102, 077 tons to be exact .
          Rifi is not the first person to reveal this fact , since this has been known for a long time since the explosion but he is the first Lebanese top official to have the guts to say it loud and clear

I agree with Chris Rampling, the British Ambassador to Lebanon that the Beirut Port ” blast was home-grown and the corrupt politicians of Lebanon should be blamed , jailed and prosecuted for this criminal scheme , I also want to go a step further and blame the Beirut based media that knew about it weeks earlier , for not doing its job in raising hell .

  38. Mr Hout , I sympathize with you , but please tell me how do you expect the Lebanese people to pay you in fresh dollars when all their dollars have been looted by the State and the mafia that is controlling it . The Lebanese cannot access their fresh dollar accounts . They can pay you what the bank gives them per dollar which is 3900 LL and your company can arrange to convert it at the central bank for fresh dollars . You are only encouraging people to emigrate if you insist in being paid fresh dollars and if they emigrate you will be out of business too , because the Lebanese people that are leaving now are vowing to never set foot in Lebanon again and since Hezbollah killed our tourism industry there won’t be tourists either

    What is he talking about? Since when they accept Lollars? They refuse any form of cheques, credit cards and LBP payments. You can only purchase your tickets in cash or with a foreign credit card. Totally fake news.

  40. I Agree with Joe Biden “Never before has an American president played such a subservient role to a Russian leader,” and US Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who said that Congress missed the opportunity to impeach President Trump for treason and accused him of having ties to Russia. The question is will the congress try Trump for treason after he leaves the White House on Jan 20. Something isn’t right about the Putin Trump relations , you almost always feel that Trump has been executing Putin’s orders from day one

  41. Does anyone care how much of a Chinese sell out Biden is the the USA? Hunter Biden has more confirmed corruption than Trump.
    Biden is a disgrace of lefty socialism and support for communist dictatorships. China being one of the biggest human rights violators in the world, they should not be rewarded. Biden will be a weak leader and Putin already said he looked forward to “collaborating” with Biden.
    What will people do when they can’t hate on Trump?

    1. I am not crazy about Biden but I agree with him ” “Never before has an American president played such a subservient role to a Russian leader,” even before Biden said I was saying the same thing to friends about Trump and Putin . If you are familiar with body language all you have to do is analyze the above photo , to see clearly how subservient is Trump to Putin … Compare this picture to those of presidents Bush Senior, Reagan and Giorbachev How shameful !!

      1. And never before has an American leader tried to sell out USA to China. Trump did what he could to clean up the horde of Chinese spies, but that may soon be undone by Biden. Are you aware how far up Xi’s ass Biden is? He spend much time Turing China directly with Xi, the two were inseparable. In case you are not clear, this is a very bad thing. Biden is borderline Alzheimer and can barely string a coherant sentence together most of the time. Biden clearly won based on a stolen election through the Dominion voting system. This level of fraud will never be allowed to happen again. That burnt out lying politician could never have won based on popular vote. Biden is as phony as a 3 dollar bill and apparently doesn’t have to answer for the corruption charges of himself and his sons. How do you describe the collusion of Hunter Biden and the millions of dollars paid for influence from Russia, China and Ukraine? Is it ok because it is not Trump?
        Sorry I do not share you confidence in Biden, but take note, when all of America’s enemies want Biden to win, what does that tell you?

  42. We know for sure that Hezbollah’s Nasrallah as usual won’t hand over the killers . God help Lebanon

  43. Iran and Hezb have turned Lebanon into the wild wild west.

  44. If it was Israel, it is hard for Lebanese to complain about a foreign power launching attacks on another country from Lebanon … Hezbollah does it all the time and no one in government says they are worried about that or willing to do anything about it … on principle, how are the jews different, these days?

  45. Great article by Baria Alamuddin. Thank you . My main concern is that the politicians in Lebanon who are allied with Hezbollah know this but keeping quiet about it . How shameful . There is no hope for Lebanon if these politicians remain in charge . All the Lebanese people should be on the streets demanding the removal of the entire ruling class ….from the president , all the way down . Lebanon needs a fresh clean start

  46. There should be no doubt about the criminal and terrorist nature of Hezbollah and their Iranian masters. They are like a sectarian cancer that invades your country and spreads its vile influence on the weak minded.

    1. Useful liberal fundamentalist idi*t Niemals dreaming to make vs low disqus reputation, idi*t

  47. ALL the current leaders need to step down, remove the sectarian divide, and vote a new free and fair democracy in power, other than that nothing will change Lebanon’s failed state status. The biggest problem is Hezbollah holding down the financial and security issues down, but after removing Hezb, the rest may fall into place when the fear of Hezbollah thugs and assassination’s are removed. Sadly I fear Hezb will not go without a massive fight.

      Once Trump is re-elected which he will be 100% Hezbollah and all involved with this clan will be history. Patients is the mother of virtue!

  48. Palestinians should not be fooled by Erdogan . This guy never cared about the Palestinian cause , after all Turkey was the first Muslim country to recognize the state of Israel in 1949 . Erdogan is the the political head of Muslim Brotherhood . Ankara has become the capital of Muslim Brotherhood . Turkey supports Hamas not because it is Palestinian , because it is a Muslim Brotherhood organization . The same goes for Iran . It was the second Muslim country to recognize Israel in 1950 and Iran supports Hamas for the same reason and not the Palestinian cause . The Muslim Brotherhood movement’s self-stated aim is the establishment of a state ruled by Sharia law and doesn’t care about the the Arab cause . Both Turkey and Iran are the biggest enemies of the Arabs . Turkey still occupies part of Syria ( Iskandaron province which they renamed as Hatay ) an area larger than half of Lebanon , and Iran still occupies 3 UAE islands of Abu Musa and the Greater and Lesser Tunbs. You cannot be a friend of a country that occupies your land

    AFP Sunday 27 December 2020

    A Syrian refugee camp in northern Lebanon was set on fire Saturday night following a fight between members of the camp and a local Lebanese family, state media reported.

    The United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, confirmed a large fire had broken out in a camp in the Miniyeh region and said some injured had been taken to hospital, but did not provide an exact number.

    For all the latest headlines follow our Google News channel online or via the app.

    “The fire has spread to all the tented shelters” — made of plastic sheeting and wood — UNHCR spokesman Khaled Kabbara told AFP.

    The camp housed around 75 families, he said.

    The National News Agency reported that the fire followed an “altercation” between a member of a Lebanese family and “Syrian workers”.

    Other youths from the Lebanese family then “set fire to some of the refugees’ tents”, the NNA added.

    The Lebanese Civil defense worked to control the blaze while the army and police were deployed to restore calm, according to the report.

    A security source told AFP shots were heard, saying the fight in the Bhanine area was sparked when Syrian workers demanded a wage which their employers refused to pay.

    “Some families have fled the area out of fear because there were also sounds of explosions caused by household gas canisters blowing up,” Kabbara said.

    Lebanon says it hosts some 1.5 million Syrians, including around one million registered as refugees with the United Nations.

    Authorities have called on refugees to return to Syria even though rights groups warn that the war-torn country is not yet safe.

    In November, around 270 Syrian refugee families fled the northern Lebanese town of Bsharre after a Syrian national was accused of shooting dead a Lebanese resident, sparking widespread tension and hostility.

      You will understand this man, when your stop thinking of him as the president of the USA.
      Trump cares only for “All-time Stock Market high”, nothing else.

      In Forbes’ list of the world’s richest people in May 2018, Trump was ranked 766th in the world and 260th in the United States with a fortune of $ 3.1 billion. He joined the list for the first time in 1982, then with a fortune of 100 million dollars. During the early 1990s, he had for a time a negative net worth after several setbacks during the current recession, but then gradually worked up his wealth to new personal highs. In March 2005, he was ranked by Forbes as the 228th richest person in the world.

      Trump sacked all advisers, and replaced them with such quack.

  53. Spiderz, a hacker group, reported that it had broken into the database of Hezbollah’s financial organization Al-Qard al-Hassan and stolen the data of 100,000 depositors and 200,000 loan recipients. The hackers published this data, as well as information about the company’s turnover.

    According to the publication, the organization has accounts in other Lebanese banks. Since al-Qard al-Hassan is under US sanctions, sanctions threaten those who cooperate with it, and this is a large part of the banking system of Lebanon.

    A representative of the organization admitted the fact of the hack in an interview with the Al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper. However, he said, the hackers were unable to access inside information. He also said that an investigation was launched.

    Al-Qard al-Hasan has been in existence for over 30 years. In fact, this is a bank that provides Hezbollah supporters with interest-free loans. The service fee is about three dollars a month. The bank also accepts gold for storage – for $ 12 per month

  54. Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diyab said there were only two billion dollars left in the treasury of funds that could be used to subsidize the weak. According to him, if austerity is introduced, this will be enough for six months.

    Diyab accused Western countries of refusing to help a country experiencing the worst political and economic crisis in its history – the international community allegedly made this decision because of discontent with the role of Hezbollah in Lebanese politics.

    The politician headed the government about a year ago with the support of Hezbollah. In August, after a powerful explosion in the Beirut port, which claimed about 200 lives, he resigned, but continues to act as a new cabinet has not been formed.

    French President Emmanuel Macron traveled to Beirut twice to offer Lebanon financial assistance. However, the condition for it was the implementation of extensive reforms for which the local political elite is not ready

  55. A resident of the Israeli North was not allowed into the United Orab
    Emirates, because in addition to Israeli, he also has Faliestinian
    citizenship. This is reported by the news of the 12th TV channel
    The man flew to Dubai on vacation three days ago – together with his
    wife and children, who were able to overcome customs control without any
    problems. However, he was detained when it turned out that he also had a
    Fallostinian Authority passport.
    The Israeli declares that he is not the only person in the world with
    dual citizenship and does not understand what the problem is. According
    to the publication, the local authorities did not explain to him why
    Falsetinian citizenship is the basis for a ban on entry.
    Note that in November 2020, the UOE stopped issuing visas to citizens of
    13 states, most of which are Muslim. According to media reports, this
    was done for security reasons. However, the list does not include the
    Faleostinian Authority

  58. For anything positive to happen, those that still hold power need to move aside and let France establish and new form of secular government.
    Only problem is nobody has the balls to tells this to Hezbollah and confront their threatening objections to a new government.
    No doubt they will go down fighting and that is what scares those involved, but that should not stop the formation of aa real new government over the old warlords that refuse to let go.

  61. All he needs do is say “yes” to the cabinet and get on with governing the country he claims is sovereign. As long as there is no government, Lebanon is not governed by the will of its citizens. With a government, it at least has a fighting chance at becoming so.

    1. Lebanon is a bargaining chip for Khamenei to play when Biden comes to power. Only then will Iran release the Lebanese government to pretend they actually have sovereignty, Aoun knows exactly what he is doing, he is a traitor supreme and someone needs to take authority away from him to start the healing process.

      Iran uses Lebanon like a cheap whore. Maybe more taunts will help unit the people against Hezb/Iran by making them angry at the Hezbollah lie. This minority militia should not be able to control the country, that’s going to change. Lebanon can’t always be the country that is destroyed by Iran’s hate of Israel.

      How many pictures of Khamenei do Lebanese have to see to understand what is happening to them, seriously. Or is it just fear of Hezbollah violence. That is how minorities rule, other than fear of violence, they would be done. So how does Lebanon overcome it? It will take the majority to stand up against Hezb/Iran and there are countries that can help take back your country from Islamic terrorist. France could move in troops if there was a movement that supported more international policing, to confront/control the savages, I mean, Hezbollah and company.

      In many ways, Iran’s IRGC are just as bad as Islamic State fighters, they are both fanatics.

  62. General Amir Ali Hajizadeh admits that Lebanon and Gaza will be Iran’s human shield and cannon fodder. What more do the Lebanese need to hear about the bad influence of Iran and their off-spring Hezbollah are? Is it not enough that Hezbollah is responsible for the destruction of Beirut, the paralyzed government and the destruction of the economy and no one is allowed to talk about it? Nice ally Iran is, a country that has no problem killing their own people by the thousands for the sake of their “resistance and Shiite revolution”, they will also do the same in Lebanon. Next will be public hangings, like in Iran, to further scare the population.
    Is there anyone in Lebanon that wants to save the country from Iran’s next Israeli war? Removing Hezbollah from power is the only answer if anyone wants to take control to save what is left OR just sit back and watch Lebanon implode. Iran has really made a mess and watch how quick those same “resistance” weapons will be turn on Lebanon for Iran’s sake.

      The Jewish Defense League ? is a religious-political organization that is claiming to “protect Jews from antisemitism by whatever means necessary”.
      No wonder that it is classified as “a right wing terrorist group” in the United States.

      The founder of this terrorist group – Meir Kahane, preached a radical form of Jewish nationalism which reflected racism, violence and political extremism, so it is not remarkable that you bring this ridiculous ‘declaration’ about Jews being something special.
      However they are experts in being ARROGANT.

        The JDL upholds five fundamental principles
        “LOVE OF JEWRY, one Jewish people, indivisible and united, from which flows the love for and the feeling of pain of all Jews.”
        “DIGNITY AND PRIDE, pride in and knowledge of Jewish tradition, faith, culture, land, history, strength, pain and peoplehood.”
        “IRON, the need to both move to help Jews everywhere and to change
        the Jewish image through sacrifice and all necessary means—even
        strength, force and violence.”
        “DISCIPLINE AND UNITY, the knowledge that he (or she) can and will
        do whatever must be done, and the unity and strength of willpower to
        bring this into reality.”
        “FAITH IN THE INDESTRUCTIBILITY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, faith in the
        greatness and indestructibility of the Jewish people, our religion and
        our Land of Israel.”

This is why Traffic controllers should focus on these organizations in addition to Iran

  67. Whose ‘public property” is it on? Who has and exercises just authority over that land?

So, will the government do that?

  70. I think VP Pence should not allow Trump to finish his term. He should remove him immediately and it appears that the US is ready for this move after Trump’s dangerous behavior today which makes him unfit to lead the nation . Here is the way to do it
    More than 50 years ago, the framers of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution foresaw the possibility of a president’s behavior becoming so unstable that it would prove necessary to have some constitutional mechanism to remove him immediately from office. Section Four of that amendment provides a process for doing so: If the vice-president and the majority of the Cabinet decide that, for whatever reason, the president has become unfit to carry out the powers and duties of the office and they transmit a letter to Congress to that effect, then the vice-president becomes the acting president and remains so unless and until Congress refuses to allow that transfer of power to stand.

    Trump should not be allowed to remain in the White House for another day . He has become so desperate , he is now a huge liability for the nation. God knows what he will do to destroy the country and its future in his remaining days in office

Israel now openly strikes Iran and Iran for their part choose to ignore these strikes and pretend it didn’t happen. Were are all the rockets and attack drones coming for Israel? They even threaten to strike from Iraq and Yemen and still nothing. Next week they will be saying they will destroy Israel if they make the slightest miscalculation and then again the next week.
    Does Iran even realize how ridiculous they look to the world? They are the barking dog and usually only fight by proxy so why not use their proxy?

    Yes. remove the immediate threat, the unhinged Donald Trump to prevent him from bombing Iran. What next? A much harder task is to remove all his main enablers in the evil Republican Party, those who knew he was unhinged, who reaped their own political benefits, sellouts to themselves and most importantly undermined any semblance of Democracy. On the other side, Dems like Chuck Shumer is one of the vicious war dogs, a faithful dog of Israel who would like to see Iran destabilized. He’s the one who threatened Trump with CIA reprisal of various forms, a defacto spokesman for them. Any president, sane or insane who wants to normalize relations with Russia and work for peace will be eliminated, as we know was the case with John Kennedy. The biggest constitutional crises is that we have never found those who killed Kennedy and Martin Luther King, have never prosecuted George Bush and others for war crimes, have never really pursued the truth of 911, and so on. The crimes and the lies by both Repubs and Dems, from the beginnings of our Republic have permanently damaged our nation. When the tree is diseased, it’s best to burn it and start over.

  78. I fully agree “Lifting sanctions on Iran “immediately ” to rejoin the nuclear deal makes absolutely no sense for US. if Biden were to give in to nuclear extortion and abandon sanctions, he would surrender his most important leverage against Tehran and never achieve his stated goal of negotiating a longer-lasting, better agreement”.
    The longer Biden waits on lifting sanctions , the better for US and its allies . As events have shown Iran cannot and should not be trusted . It has destabilized the entire Middle East .

  79. All the current leaders should be removed from power if Lebanon ever wants a real less corrupt government. But then again, Iran is running the show anyways so they are pretty much screwed.

    1. Lebanon , Iraq and Syria have been taker over by Iran
      All the top leaders of these countries are figureheads and all decisions are made by Iran.
      When Bassil , Aoun , Berri or Diab talk they are acting as Hezbollah ‘s dummies ….they are completely powerless . They have to clear every word with Hezbollah before saying it ….It is that bad

  80. Iraq will soon be up on the list of Iranian controlled failed states. Iran is the master of screwing up countries. Iraq had its chance to be the next Japan, Germany, South Korea, that followed the US economic plan, but Iranian influence brought overwhelming corruption and sectarian violence that all you have left now if a pathetic front line for Iran’s regional proxy wars.
    Iraq could have save itself, but Iran has too many puppets in Iraq and anyone that speaks against Iran gets assassinated. Too late now and eventually all the US will leave because they are not wanted by Iranian puppets in Iraq, and they will slip into abused colony status. The Arabs appear to be weak against the Persians infiltration.
    It is no wonder all the smart Arab countries made peace with Israel leaving only the Iranian failed state proxies.
    It appears that the Shiite religion breeds fanatics, terrorism and poverty.

  81. Funny how when Biden was asked to comment on Antifa/BLM he called these anarchist “idealists” even though they were burning and looting and murdering for most of this year. Biden is a pure hypocrite and strangely the media is also useful at suppressing information as well like the Hunter Biden scandal, Biden’s close relationship with the Chinese Communist Party and money that was made tax free from the Russians. But that is OK crimes as long as the Democrats are doing it.
    America’s decent into communism, ala Biden/Harris extreme left wing. Next they will start to suppress freedom of speech, oh wait they are doing that already. When you remove free speech from the opposition you are on a slippery slope.

  85. From Israel to the United Orab Emirates, the first shipment of “settlements’ products was sent: olive oil produced at the Tura winery in Rehalim, Paradise honey from Hermesh in northern Samaria, and wine destined for non-Muslims.

    The Arutz 7 website quotes the head of the Shomron Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, who initiated agreements on the supply of “settlement” products to the UOE. He called this day historic, expressing the hope that other Orab states will follow the Emirates.

    According to him, Samaria, valuable for its history and geography, is turning into an economic power, and the goal of the regional council is to bring the local Jewish population to a million people. He called the local agricultural products the best in the world.

    Hamas has sharply criticized the start of exports. “This is support for the expropriation of Fallllllostinian lands by “settlers” and the policy of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Israeli authorities,” said the representative of the terrorist group Hazim Qasem

    Under Norwegian agreements, the PA is responsible for providing medical care to the population. When the Falssetinian side asked Israel to provide a vaccine for humanitarian cases, that request was granted.

    However, international humanitarian organizations have accused Israel of refusing to vaccinate the Paleostinians, “occupied”. Amnesty International said it proves that Jewish life is more valuable than Orab life

  91. A senior US administration official said that the attack on facilities in eastern Syria on the night of January 13 was the result of an exchange of information between the Israeli and American leaders.

    According to this statement, the data was passed on by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Mossad director Yossi Cohen during their meeting in Washington a few days ago. Note that the American representative blames the attack on Israel, while in Jerusalem they remain silent.

    Earlier, The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that on the night of January 13, the Israeli Air Force launched a series of attacks on targets in eastern Syria, in the governorate of Dir al-Zur, near the border with Iraq. Objects of pro-Iranian forces and Hezbollah were attacked in Ayyash, Sayk, Al-Bukamal and Al-Mayadin

    Sources add that Trump has requested his departure ceremony to have a “military-like feel,” although details are not finalized.

  101. The Biden administration is a farce. Trump wanted to open the economy and Dems refused, Trump offered stimulus plans and Dems refused, Trump offered National guard to quell Antifa protests and Biden called them idealists. Biden’s close ties with Russia and China seem to go unaddressed as does the influence crimes Biden and his son are guilty of and Biden refuses to address.
    it is going to be another 4 years of Obama v2.0 and yet another failed administration that pulled off the ultimate election fraud.

      That something is probably Putin’s secret giant palace.

      The information comes from Alexei Navalny and his organization, which also came across pictures, both of the palace’s exterior and its interior.
      This is mainly thanks to people who worked with the palace and were shocked by the extravagance, Navaljny’s organization states.
      According to Alexei Navalny, the palace includes a full-size hockey rink, an amphitheater and an underground tunnel directly to the sea. Alexei Navalny claims that Putin has been able to hide many billions of rubles in order to build the palace through an advanced corruption plan for many years.

      If Vladimir Putin has secretly had a giant palace built on the Black Sea in southern Russia, he didn’t protect this secret from the opposition good enough.
      When the palace has cost amazing 100 billion rubles.

  116. I think it will be stupid from the Biden administration to quickly rejoin the deal as long as Iran continues to destabilize the region . The last concern for the US should be who takes over from Rouhani . After all the president of Iran is completely powerless and only the Supreme leader can make any decision and the whole world knows that Khamanei ‘s ultimate goal is to have a nuclear bomb to bully his neighbors . What did the US gain from the deal ? nothing . On the contrary it angered its allies . because Iran used the funds released to destabilize the region .Rouhani didn’t even have the guts to give Obama a phone call. The only language the Iranian regime understands and respects is firmness. The US should set very strict conditions before any return to a renegotiated deal and the last thing the Biden administration should do is repeat Obama’s mistake of easing the sanctions . Easing sanctions should be the last move after independent certification of complete compliance

    and ever since it crumbled
    and Hezbollah and its allies took over
    and the rest is history

      1. Tired or not , unfortunately the only way for the Lebanese to regain their country is to get rid of Iran and Hezbollah , either through an uprising or a coup by the Lebanese army or both . I think once this happens many friendly nations that are tired of Iran and Hezbollah will be willing to help. The status quo cannot and should not continue .

It has killed people and has tried to destroy everything we’re trying, as good Lebanese, to move forward,” he said angrily.

    Regarding his brother Saad, he says;
    “He is my little brother and I love him very much. This will never change — not today, not tomorrow, not till the end of my days,” Bahaa said. “But you cannot solve the problems when these cronies are the problem, okay. This hasn’t happened just for a year or two; we’ve been on it for almost 16 years now.”

      “Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country,” McConnell said in a statement. “Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality. This has nothing to do with the challenges facing American families or the robust debates on substance that can strengthen our party.”
      It’s notable to say that McConnell did not name Greene directly.

  156. On Thursday, February 4, a prominent Hezbollah critic, activist and publisher, head of the Lokman Slim research center, was found shot to death in his car in southern Lebanon, Reuters reports.

    Slim was reportedly shot in the head. His cell phone was found on the side of the road.

    Relatives of Lockman Slim learned of his death when they were at the police station, filing a statement about his disappearance.

    An investigation is underway.

    The Hezbollah leadership does not comment on this incident.

    After it became known about the murder of Slim, a protest action began near the Palace of Justice in Beirut. The posters read: “State of Terror: Explosions, Abductions, Murders.”

    1. Too bad , Hezbollah has damaged the reputation of the Shiites by being a mercenary of Iran the enemy of the Arabs.
      After all Lokman Slim is one of the most respectable intellectuals in Lebanon and considered himself a proud Shiite .
      I think it is about mighty time the silent Shiites majority that has historically been a very important element of modern day Lebanon to rise against Hezbollah.
      After all Hezbollah chief pledged allegiance to Iran and not Lebanon, so he should take his arms and make Tehran his home like al Qaeda did .. ….Terrorists belong together .

      1. When do the fireworks start? Ignoring the problem will only leave Lebanon in this perpetual heII they are currently in.
        Somebody needs to start by proclaiming Hezbollah a non-governmental actor, thus removal from Lebanon government. Or a new Shiite party can be established in their face.

  158. Mr Slim is right . there is only one state in Lebanon and it is the Hezbollah state and killing is the only language they practice .
    The time has come for all the Lebanese Shiites, Sunnis , Christians of all faiths and Druze to fight this evil state

  162. President Aoun promised six months ago that an investigation of the Beirut port explosion will reveal the culprits within 5 days but till this date not one official has been tried for that devastating explosion that killed hundreds , wounded thousands and devastated a huge part of Beirut and left over hundreds of thousands homeless . He should be the first one to be tried an d sent directly from Baabda to Jail

  163. “the late President Charles Helou in 1918”?
    He was only 5 years old in 1918 . He served from 23 September 1964 – 22 September 1970.
    Lebanon didn’t have any president during that period , it was occupied by the Ottomans
    Must be a typographical error
    perhaps Mr Abou Faour will offer to correct

  164. Incredibly honest and straight forward . She knows the judiciary and the investigation will. be controlled by Hezbollah , why bother since she is absolutely certain without the shadow of any doubt that Hezbollah killed her brother Lokman

  167. 1- The port authorities should know exactly who brought these hazardous containers to Lebanon and forced them to pay for removing them . Why does the government have to pay for part of it and beg the Germans to pay the rest ?
    2- what for were these hazardous materials and why no one claimed them ?
    3- what is going on in the country ?
    4 – has Lebanon stopped being a sovereign country and is now run like a farm by a terrorist organization that controls all the branches of government ?
    If someone has the answer please let us all know
    I mean if these hazardous materials exploded we may not have a Lebanon anymore … is this the aim?
    Why do this to the most beautiful country on earth ?
    We know there is no heart but no brains too?

  168. One of the most unimpressive POTUS ever. The corrupt Dems and their cooperate media team hard at work creating the narrative. Maybe if I was one of the 6 people that when to a Biden rally I might see him different, but there is enough videos of stammering Joe in action and the rigged debates to confirm how I and over half of America feel. Biden once said only dictators rule by executive order, and he proved himself a dictator by signing the most executive orders in presidential history.
    Most underwhelming POTUS ever. Sadly if Trump did half the stuff the Biden crime family did I would understand, but the media did not allow any bad Biden media.
    Nothing like rolling back the free speech in a further step towards communism.

In the past whenever we worked in UAE our salaries were double , because Beirut was the Gold Standard of the whole region and the UAE was a land of desert inhabited by nomadic Bedouin tribes, fishing villages and date farms. Look where the UAE is today and where is Lebanon today . Those proud and resourceful Bedouins made a country out of that desert while the corrupt Lebanese leaders ran the most beautiful country on earth as a mafia operation and turned it into a wasteland.

  186. The Maccabi Health Insurance Fund, the leader in the rate of vaccination of its clients in Israel, reported that 544 of the 523,000 people who received two doses of Pfizer vaccine contracted the coronavirus (0.1%). 15 of them needed hospitalization: eight suffered a mild illness, three in a moderate form, and four in a severe one. All 15 recovered

    Thus, the data obtained one week after the vaccine recipients received the second dose of vaccine shows that the effectiveness of Pfizer is 93%. This was announced by the official representative Dr. Miri Mizrahi Reuveni. “This data demonstrates that the vaccine is very effective and we have no doubt that it saved the lives of many Israelis,” she said.
    Maccabi statistics are scrutinized around the world as they provide the first insight into how a vaccine works “in the field” rather than in a clinical trial. According to these statistics, the actual vaccine efficacy is close to the 95% efficacy claimed by Pfizer in clinical trials.

  187. So much for the Dems grand lie about unity. The impeachment was a failed attempt for the Dems to further kick Trump when he was down. The whole unity speech is a pure Dem lie. They sow more division than unity. Not to mention the Biden trying to undo all that Trump did without any consideration of if it was good or not.
    Look at the Houthi for example, Biden was trying to make a point and gift Iran the terror removal, and Iran sees Biden weakness and turns the heat way up on Yemen and its Houthi proxy with more terrorist strikes. China Joe sucks. Worst POTUS ever.

  192. For the first time in Israel, a large-scale study was conducted on the effect of the Pfizer vaccine on the manifestation of symptoms of coronavirus in case of infection.
    The study was carried out by the Clalit Health Insurance Fund based on data from 1,200,000 Israelis, of whom half were vaccinated and the other half had not yet been vaccinated.
    Professor Ran Balitzer, director of the research institute of the Clalit health insurance fund and consultant to the coordinator of the Magen Israel program, in an interview with Keshet-12 TV channel explained that the subject of all previous studies was the effect of the vaccine on the infection of the virus, and not on the symptoms of the disease. … The vaccine manufacturer, Pfizer, did not have this data either.
    For the first time, researchers compared data from those vaccinated to a control group to see if the vaccine worked “like a textbook.”
    In the study, both groups were divided into subgroups by age, general health status, belonging to a particular “risk” group and chronic diseases. The data of the vaccinated client of the health insurance fund were compared with the data of the person who is his “statistical counterpart” in order to avoid the influence of extraneous factors on the results of the study.
    The study included data from 170 thousand Israelis over 60 years old, and 430 thousand people from 16 to 59 years old. The HMO emphasizes that this is the first time the vaccine has been separately tested on a group of people over the age of 70, as Pfizer was not able to test it separately due to the tight schedule of the clinical trial.
    According to data published by the Clalit Research Institute, in the case of infection after vaccination, the number of manifestations of the disease has decreased by 94%.
    The risk of severe disease in case of infection has decreased by 92%.
    According to Clalit, the vaccine remains effective in all age groups, including those over 70

  200. The Supreme Sharia Council of the Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip issued a decree prohibiting unmarried girls from going anywhere without the permission of a male guardian, usually a father. According to the regulation, this could be harmful.
    The document, signed by the chairman of the council, Sheikh Hassan al-Juju, restricts freedom of movement for children under 18 years of age. To avoid harm to the child, a parent, grandfather or grandmother must accompany him.
    Human rights organizations demanded to cancel the new decree. They note that it is not only detrimental to the dignity of women, but is also contrary to the legislation in force in the Faliestinian territories. The Blastinian Authority was also opposed
    “The life of the Falosstinians is not regulated by the circulars issued by the council in Gaza. Restricting public and personal freedoms unnecessarily contradicts the spirit of Sharia, this is an infringement of the rights guaranteed by Islam,” said FA Sharia Supreme Judge Mahmoud al-Habbash

    1. On February 16, the Paleostinian Authority’s Ministry of Health reports that 1,043 new cases of coronavirus infection have been identified over the past 24 hours (125 of them in Gaza). 777 patients were recognized as recovered. During the day, the PA recorded six deaths from COVID-19.

      No test data available. Last week, in 14-15% of cases, coronavirus was detected during testing.

      It is reported that 67 patients with COVID-19 are in intensive care units, 27 of them are connected to ventilators.

      The following data are also provided: 93.2% of those infected with the coronavirus recovered, 5.7% of those infected have not yet recovered, 1.1% have died.

      For the entire period of the epidemic: 2,139 deaths, 191,359 infected, 178,251 recovered from coronavirus infection.

      The PA Ministry of Health continues to include data on Jerusalem in its reporting, which is confusing, since the same data is included in the statistics of the Israeli Ministry of Health.

      The PA is conducting selective vaccination against coronavirus. Autonomy received from the Israeli authorities several thousand doses of Moderna vaccine and 10 thousand doses of Sputnik V vaccine from Russia

  208. A federal court in New York dismissed Citibank’s claim against clients seeking the return of $ 501 million, which was transferred to them in error.
    The mistake occurred on August 11 this year, when Citibank had to, as an intermediary to Revlon, pay its customers interest on the loan taken by Revlon in the amount of 7.8 million dollars.
    Instead, the bank, for some unknown reason, transferred them the return of the entire loan – $ 893 million, although the loan was to be repaid only in 2023.
    A few days later, when the error was discovered, the bank turned to customers with a request to return the money, but so far only a part has been returned. A number of investment companies and hedge funds are refusing to return $ 501 million. They argued that they had already used the money received because they felt that the bank, for its own reasons or in agreement with Revlon, decided to expedite the repayment of the loan.
    Judge Jesse Fruman dismissed the suit, ruling that the recipients of the money were perfectly logical, since they rightly believed that the money was transferred correctly. “Believing otherwise, deciding that Citibank made such a mistake, worth almost a billion dollars – something on the verge of rational perception of reality,” – says the ruling, justified by 120 pages

    The bodies of the kidnapped servicemen were returned to Israel only two years later as part of a prisoner exchange deal with Hezbollah. At the same time, until the last moment, Israel did not know for sure whether Goldwasser and Regev were alive or not. As part of the deal, Israel freed Lebanese terrorist “with blood in his hands” Samir Kuntar and four other Hezbollah fighters from prison

  221. One of the “suspected ships” is the Greek-flagged tanker Minerva Helen. On February 11, this ship left Port Said (Egypt) and headed towards the coast of Israel. According to the version presented in this publication, after the oil spill, the tanker turned around and returned to another port in Egypt. Currently Minerva Helen is heading to the port of Cartagena (Spain).

    The spilled oil reached the beaches of Israel on February 17. On this day there was a strong storm (the height of the waves reached 7 meters). It was raining and snowing, there was low, thick cloud cover (which created problems for satellite monitoring). The day before, February 16, it was also stormy, the cloud cover was low.

    Note that in social networks the tanker Minerva Helen was mentioned as the “main suspect” a few days ago. But it was forbidden to publish this information in the media. We also emphasize that the Israeli authorities have not yet assigned responsibility for the environmental disaster to any particular vessel

    I think all the Lebanese who care about the future of Lebanon should go to Bkirki in a show of support for the patriarch
    As we see things develop he may be the only hope for Lebanon
    Where are the October 2019 revolutionaries ? You should all be in Bkirki

  227. The Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection reports that an inspection of the Greek tanker Minerva Helen in the port of Piraeus showed that this vessel was not involved in the pollution of the Israeli coast with oil products.
    The inspection was carried out on February 27 by a team of investigators led by Israel’s Ministry of the Environment in collaboration with the Greek authorities, Ynet reported.
    The ministry says several dozen vessels remain under suspicion. The investigation continues. So far, about ten vessels have been checked. The source of the pollution has not been identified.
    Recall that on February 17-18, hundreds of tons of oil products were thrown out by a storm on the Israeli Mediterranean coast, from Rosh HaNikra in the north to Ashkelon and Zikim in the south. The total length of the pollution strip is about 160-170 km. Petroleum products also reached the coast of Lebanon.
    Environmentalists speak of the worst environmental disaster on Israel’s coast in decades. According to preliminary estimates, most of the work on cleaning the beaches can be completed within a few weeks, but it will take years to completely eliminate the consequences of this environmental disaster.
    As a result of water and coastal pollution, many marine animals have died.
    On February 23, the Israeli government approved a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Environment Minister Gila Gamliel to allocate 45 million shekels to address the effects of oil pollution on the country’s Mediterranean coast. This decision should lead to an intensification of beach clean-up work. But it is not yet known what exactly the allocated funds will be spent on and whether special equipment will be purchased for cleaning the sea coast (previously, representatives of the Ministry of Ecology stated that manual cleaning is necessary).
    At the same time, it turned out that the government’s decision to allocate 15 million shekels for the National Program of Preparedness for Oil and Oil Products Spills at Sea, approved by the government under the leadership of Ehud Olmert, remained on paper without receiving a single shekel of funding. Only on February 21, the Ministry of Environment admitted that at the time of the environmental disaster Israel did not have a subscription to receive information from the European satellite pollution monitoring system. According to representatives of the ministry, the previous subscription expired three months ago and negotiations were underway to extend it. It is not a fact that the presence of a subscription would have prevented pollution of the coast (stormy weather and low clouds interfered with the operation of satellites and a possible operation to clean the water surface), but without a subscription, the chances of this were even less. It was also found that only half of the coastal municipalities actually participate in the annual exercises to develop pollution scenarios, and even they have serious problems with the availability of equipment and technology. As a result, volunteers and soldiers are hand-cleaning the coastline
    The fuel oil spill was not only a blow to the fauna of the Israeli coast, which is a tragedy in itself. This is direct damage to tourism, fisheries, marine infrastructure, etc., estimated at billions of shekels

  228. The Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection reports that an inspection of the Greek tanker Minerva Helen in the port of Piraeus showed that this vessel was not involved in the pollution of the Israeli coast with oil products.
    The inspection was carried out on February 27 by a team of investigators led by Israel’s Ministry of the Environment in collaboration with the Greek authorities, Ynet reported.
    The ministry says several dozen vessels remain under suspicion. The investigation continues. So far, about ten vessels have been checked. The source of the pollution has not been identified.
    Recall that on February 17-18, hundreds of tons of oil products were thrown out by a storm on the Israeli Mediterranean coast, from Rosh HaNikra in the north to Ashkelon and Zikim in the south. The total length of the pollution strip is about 160-170 km. Petroleum products also reached the coast of Lebanon.
    Environmentalists speak of the worst environmental disaster on Israel’s coast in decades. According to preliminary estimates, most of the work on cleaning the beaches can be completed within a few weeks, but it will take years to completely eliminate the consequences of this environmental disaster.
    As a result of water and coastal pollution, many marine animals have died.
    On February 23, the Israeli government approved a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Environment Minister Gila Gamliel to allocate 45 million shekels to address the effects of oil pollution on the country’s Mediterranean coast. This decision should lead to an intensification of beach clean-up work. But it is not yet known what exactly the allocated funds will be spent on and whether special equipment will be purchased for cleaning the sea coast (previously, representatives of the Ministry of Ecology stated that manual cleaning is necessary).
    At the same time, it turned out that the government’s decision to allocate 15 million shekels for the National Program of Preparedness for Oil and Oil Products Spills at Sea, approved by the government under the leadership of Ehud Olmert, remained on paper without receiving a single shekel of funding.

I bet you once the Swiss system is adopted in Lebanon , the country will will prosper because it will become the number one tourist destination , since there is no country in the whole worlds as beautiful as Lebanon. All Lebanon needs is stability and such a system can deliver it . As long as Hezbollah is in charge not one tourist will show up except perhaps those sick with the pandemic . If Hezbollah wants to fight Let it move to Syria or Iran , since the shiites of Lebanon are sick and tired of Hezbollah and Iran, like the majority of the Lebanese . We want our country back . The International conference should focus on adopting the Swiss System without any delay . Time to get rid of our rotten political system

  233. On Wednesday, March 3, Israeli Environment Minister Gila Gamliel announced on her Twitter page that it had been established which ship was involved in oil pollution on the Israeli Mediterranean coast.

    “We overtook a criminal ship. Our long arm will reach out to anyone who harms our nature, the sea and our beaches,” Gamliel wrote.

    The name of the vessel has not yet been published

  237. Israeli Environment Minister Gila Gamliel announced at a press conference in Jerusalem that a pirate ship Emerald, owned by a Libyan company, which left the Iranian port, was involved in oil pollution on the Israeli Mediterranean coast.
    “This is not just an environmental crime, it is environmental terrorism,” Gamliel says.
    “Iran is engaged in terror not only with the help of nuclear weapons or trying to gain a foothold on our borders. Iran is engaged in terror, harming the environment. Our fight against pollution and environmental damage is an international struggle,” the minister said in a statement.
    According to the investigation, this Libyan ship left the Persian Gulf on January 14-18 “with the devices turned off.” On February 1, it was in the economic waters of Egypt, where for 23 hours the automatic identification system (AIS) of this vessel was disabled. It is assumed that it was at this time that oil products were dumped into the sea, which subsequently reached the Israeli and Lebanese coasts and were thrown ashore by a storm. After dumping oil products into the sea, the Emerald reached the coast of Syria, from where it returned to Iran, where it is currently located.
    According to the Israeli authorities, the Emerald is 19 years old. Due to its “age”, it could not enter the ports of Europe and the United States and has recently been in the ports of Iran.
    Israel intends to seek compensation.
    Earlier, Gila Gamliel wrote: it was established which ship was involved in oil pollution of the Israeli coast of the Mediterranean Sea. “We overtook a criminal ship. Our long arm will reach out to anyone who harms our nature, the sea and our beaches,” she said.
    Recall, on February 17-18, hundreds of tons of oil products were thrown out by a storm on the Israeli Mediterranean coast, from Rosh HaNikra in the north to Ashkelon and Zikim in the south. The total length of the pollution strip is about 160-170 km. Petroleum products have reached the coast of Lebanon

    1. Specialists of the Ministry of Ecology of Israel, in contrast to Minister Gamliel, are in no hurry to declare unequivocally that it is a question of “terrorism.” They do not exclude that the Emerald tanker dumped oil products into the sea as a result of a technical malfunction. But at the same time it is emphasized that the delivery of oil from Iran to Syria was “pirate”.

      At this stage, the Israeli authorities do not hold Iran responsible for this incident

  238. Igor Yakovenko: “Sanctions as a ritual”

    “The concern of Europe and America has been converted into sanctions. Now Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov, ICR head Alexander Bastrykin, Rosguard chief Viktor Zolotov and FSIN head Alexander Kalashnikov will not be able to have breakfast in Paris and keep accounts in European banks. That will undoubtedly bring down their usual way of life. Perhaps some of those European officials who have been checking the list for so long believe that they have dealt a sensitive blow to these four of Putin’s guardsmen. It is unlikely. Rather, the selection was carried out precisely on the principle of “do no harm.” So, God forbid, not to hurt some sensitive strings of the Putin regime, not to offend someone from those with whom Europe for some reason hopes to conduct a “dialogue.” It does not matter what, the main thing is to have a dialogue, ”writes the columnist for“ Daily Journal ”.

    “It is very important for them to continue an extremely meaningful” dialogue “, for example, with the vice-speaker and part-time anti-Semite Pyotr Tolstoy, who has just called on Russia to leave the Council of Europe and to create” its own ECHR. ”

    Of course, such a reaction is better than none. It is not bad that sanctions against Bastrykin were introduced for “repression against the Russian opposition.” It is good that Krasnov was explained that he was “responsible for serious violations of human rights … as well as massive and systematic repressions.” In the biography of Zolotov, there is now a clause about his responsibility for the suppression of protests and demonstrations by violent means. Kalashnikov was accused of “the FSIN demanded Navalny’s attendance while he was in a coma, and then, on his order, the politician was detained upon arrival.” If the mole of history begins to dig a little faster, then these four may well be able to see these formulations in the conviction. But for now, they have nothing to worry about. On the contrary, each of them can wear these sanctions as a reward and point the finger, for example, at the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Kolokoltsev: they say, why did not he fall under the sanctions – is he a traitor?

    The US sanctions turned out to be slightly broader and more meaningful in terms of symbols. The inclusion in the sanctions list of the “apeshechka” officials Yarin and Kiriyenko – especially Kiriyenko – means that the United States, or rather the Biden administration, understands well the role of yesterday’s “reformers” and “liberals” in creating a repressive regime and has no illusions about these people. This is a good sign not only for Kiriyenko, who has finally merged into a single lump with Zolotov, Bastrykin and Kalashnikov, but also for Chubais and Gref. It is impossible to serve the fascist regime for a long time and loyally and remain a normal person in the eyes of the world community.

    It is difficult to say how painful the US sanctions will be for the Defense Ministry’s 27th Research Center and the Department’s 33rd Research Institute. There is a strong suspicion that the heads of these offices, Viktor Kovtun and Valery Inozemtsev, as well as their subordinates, do not keep their salaries in US banks and do not rest in Miami anyway. It is quite possible that the production process of all the nasty things they do is not so critically dependent on American supplies. So it is rather a symbolic act. This is how Biden announces to Putin: we know that you are producing and using chemical warfare weapons, we know who is doing this for you, and we will oppose it.

    The ritualism of sanctions spawned an equally ritualistic response. Maria Zakharova immediately jumped out of the Foreign Ministry’s snuffbox and sounded sadly: “We do not intend to put up with this. We will react on the basis of the principle of reciprocity, not necessarily symmetrically … We urge our colleagues not to play with fire.”

    To disassemble the hysteria of Maria Alexandrovna is an unpleasant and ungrateful business. Thank you that this time the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not use an obscenity and thieves’ give a damn. As for the comical appeal “not to play with fire”, Zakharova recalled Panikovsky’s monologue performed by Zinovy ​​Gerdt: “You saw! What will I do with him !! Now there will be a sea of ​​blood !!!”.

    It is more important to understand what can be expected in terms of sanctions from Europe and the United States in the future. Will they remain pin-pricks or will they be able to somehow influence what is happening in Russia in the future? There are apparently no questions regarding Europe. European politicians ignored the proposals of Navalny’s team to include in the sanctions lists those for whom it would be sensitive, including the oligarchs and Solovyov with his Italian villa. The sanctions have neatly bypassed Nord Stream 2. Europe prefers to oppose Putin’s Russia in the style of contactless karate: God forbid, to touch the enemy and inflict any damage on him.

    In many respects on behalf of Europe, Macron has recently begun to speak, who, speaking at the Munich conference, said: “We need to build a new architecture of common security, which should include, among other things, a dialogue with Russia.”

    1. While Europe is clearly not worth the wait for a more decisive opposition to the Putin regime, then the Biden administration may well present Putin with something more substantial than formidable rhetoric. But for this, at least, the Russians themselves need to give some noticeable sign that they are not satisfied with what is happening in their own country. It is strange to expect from the West that it will fight obscurantism and the growing fascism in Russia, going in this fight at certain costs, if the citizens of Russia themselves, for the most part, passively accept all these outrages, and some actively support and turn to the authorities with demands ” more fascism! “,” more obscurantism! ”

      There are undoubtedly benefits from the sanctions. Like vitamins with coronavirus. Foreign countries will not help us, but when the regime begins to collapse, it will certainly push and accelerate the fall. And so, all by ourselves. Our country is for us to figure it out … “

  239. Lilia Shevtsova: “Sanctions against Russia: who is in pain?”

    “The inevitable has happened. The US and the EU have rolled out sanctions against Russia for persecuting Alexei Navalny. Washington is preparing new sanctions for cyberattacks against state institutions, which it accuses Russia of. The dead end is obvious. The West cannot but react to the Kremlin’s violation of legal and humanitarian principles. The Kremlin cannot retreat, making the Western response unforgiving, “political analyst Lilia Shevtsova writes on her Facebook page.

    “Meanwhile, it is difficult for the West to combine the incongruous: containment, isolation and dialogue. Therefore, restrictive measures turn out to be shooting at sparrows. Either they hurt those who should not be the target of the strike, or cause consequences opposite to those expected. Western democracies are trying to stay within the framework of vegetarianism. Nobody. is not going to collapse the Russian government or undermine the Russian economy.

    The sanctions regime includes an appeal by Western governments to their audiences (“We are reacting”); holding a “red line” in front of Moscow with a warning – pay the price if you step over. But at the same time, the West is trying to prevent the “price tag” from interfering with the dialogue with Russia.

    The sanctions hurt Russia. A study by American economists of 500 sanctioned Russian campaigns says their losses amounted to about $ 95 billion, or 4.2% of Russia’s pre-sanctioned GDP. If we add to this the cost of the “shield” with which the Kremlin has protected campaigns in finance, defense, energy, and groups close to the Kremlin from sanctions, then Russian losses will reach $ 180 billion, or 8% of the pre-sanctioned GDP. The Russian elite, which has integrated itself into the Western system, has perceptibly suffered (for example, Vekselberg has more than $ 1.5 billion frozen in Western banks).

    The sanctions have made the Kremlin more cautious. But they did not change Russia’s policy towards Ukraine – the root cause of the sanctions. The sanctions did not force Moscow to abandon its geopolitical game. The sanctions did not split the Russian elite. They did not prevent the government’s repression of society. The sanctions process turned out to be costly. The West has to provide a double unity. The EU must get sanctions approved by all 27 members, which ends up eroding their harshness. It is even more difficult for the US and Europe to come to terms. The Americans are ready for more pressure, which provokes resistance from the Europeans (the controversy over the Nord Stream 2 sanctions).

    Another problem for the West is to minimize the damage from sanctions for itself. They drew a conclusion from Deripaska’s case when sanctions against Rusal hit European industry. Russia has adapted to the restrictions and is finding holes in the sanctions grid (example: the supply of pipes from Siemens Gas Turbines Technology to Crimea). Some Western institutions believe that sanctions do not prevent them from working in Russia. Thus, JP Morgan believes that their clients are ready to invest in Russian bonds.

    Most important, however, is not the current economic impact, but the strategic implications of the sanctions. Western pressure is undermining Russia’s status on the world stage, including the ability to have its own spheres of influence. Restrictive measures hit the hopes of modernizing Russia, depriving it of investment and technology. Sanctions increase Russia’s isolation. Meanwhile, a power with a global appetite, finding itself under pressure, usually feels a desire for retribution. Consequently, instead of appeasement, sanctions increase aggressiveness. The burden of sanctions does not fall on those to whom it is intended. Ordinary Russians pay for “a strike on Voronezh” – for counter-sanctions, which the Kremlin responded to the West. Russians pay both for the losses of Russian oligarchs and for the survival of state-owned companies. They pay not only by lowering living standards, but also by restricting freedoms as a result of the Kremlin’s anti-Western campaign.

    The confusion of the West is understandable. It is impossible not to react to Russian “gambits”. But how to react so as not to look naive, without prejudice to oneself, is unclear. It is clear that the threat of penalties against the Russian security forces is symbolism. You can be frightened by the disconnection of Russia from Swift – but this is not yet a feasible measure.

    The collapse of hopes for quick changes in Russia and the possibility of influencing the Kremlin gave rise to pessimism in Western political circles: “Russia cannot be changed. Putin for a long time.” Therefore, it is necessary to look for a ground for dialogue. But today in the West another approach is also strengthening, which consists of a “double track”. Here is its essence: first, it is necessary to take an inventory of the sanctions package against Russia and decide what works and what does not; secondly, it’s time to cleanse your own blood vessels. It is about imposing “sanctions against itself” on the West.

    This means reformatting the foreign and domestic policies of liberal democracies through the transparency of financial flows. Money laundering and financial transactions from corrupt states must become a national security threat to liberal democracies. This threat must be transferred from the sphere of foreign policy to the sphere of domestic policy

    1. Europe began its first attempt at self-cleaning when Brussels approved the 5th AntiMoney Laundering Directive in 2018. This happened after the reputations of the leading banks in Europe collapsed, which laundered hundreds of billions of dollars of Russian dirty money. 5th Directive eliminates the anonymity of bank accounts. Under the Directive – everyone who works with the money of suspicious persons. Particular attention of European financial regulators is focused on “politically exposed persons” (PEP) – politicians, officials, their relatives and associates.

      Cleansing is very difficult. However, there is nowhere to go – the European Union must create unified registers of all owners of current and savings accounts by September 20, 2021; open information about all beneficiaries and create a common financial intelligence system that will oversee the transparency process.

      America remains a field for money laundering. Leaks from the FinCEN (an agency within the Treasury Department) say that US departments have received information about suspicious transactions worth about $ 2 trillion, but cannot handle their analysis. In these leaks, Russia is in second place in terms of the scale of transactions. Recently, the structures of the European Parliament discussed the report of the American Atlantic Council “How to protect the United States from dirty Russian money”, which talks about how self-purification is going on in America.

      When will the new Western strategy take shape? Will she force the Russian elite to reconsider their format of life? Dont clear. What is clear is that Western democracies refuse to be an external resource for Russia and are trying to distance themselves from Russia so as not to provoke retaliation. Russia risks being left on the sidelines with no chance of catching up with the train.

      The Russian ruling elite is facing a challenge – the time when it is possible to survive while maintaining loyalty to the Kremlin and the “golden parachute” in the West is running out. “

  241. The contraband of Iranian oil to Syria led to an environmental disaster in Israel. Investigation by the Ministry of Ecology
    The Emerald tanker is a vessel with a length of 250 meters and a width of 44 meters, which took on board about 700 thousand barrels of oil in Iran or Iraq on January 14-18, 2021. On January 20, the ship passed the Strait of Hormuz, and on January 31 – the Suez Canal. After that, for almost a day, the ship disappeared from the radar, turning off the transmitter and moving towards Syria.
    According to the Ministry of Ecology, it was then that the oil spill took place, and not on February 11, as previously assumed. The spill occurred 130 kilometers off the coast of Israel. European satellites show the presence of an oil slick in the area on February 5, and on February 11 it was recorded by satellites already 50 kilometers from the Israeli coast. In addition, there are two oil spills in the area between Cyprus and Syria.
    Recall that the pollution of the Israeli coast with oil products occurred on February 17-18, and it was initially assumed that it was about fuel oil or some kind of waste oils. Analyzes have shown that the cause of the pollution is crude oil, which has reduced the number of suspected vessels from 35 to 4. The Ministry of Ecology of Israel currently does not have direct evidence of the guilt of the Emerald tanker, however, all indirect evidence, including the exclusion of the other three tankers from the suspects, indicates it is on him.
    The obsolete tanker Emerald (19 years old), which is not allowed in ports in Europe and the United States, used to be called EBN BATUTA, belonged to the state oil company of Libya and flew under the flag of Malta. Shortly before leaving the Iranian port, he changed his residence permit to the Marshall Islands, and his flag to Panamanian. At the same time, it is known that the tanker is still owned by a company based in Libya.
    From February 3 to February 14, the ship was in the Syrian region, and when it lay down on the opposite course, its draft indicated that the ship was unloaded. This means that at sea off the coast of Syria, oil was pumped to another vessel.
    On February 15, Emerald is again in the Strait of Suez, on February 27 – in the Strait of Hormuz, and the day before, the ship entered the Iraqi port of Umm Qasem near Basra.
    On February 17-18, hundreds of tons of petroleum products were thrown by the storm on the Israeli Mediterranean coast, from Rosh HaNikra in the north to Ashkelon and Zikim in the south. The total length of the pollution strip is about 160-170 km. Petroleum products also reached the coast of Lebanon.
    Environmentalists speak of the worst environmental disaster on Israel’s coast in decades. According to preliminary estimates, most of the work on cleaning the beaches can be completed within a few weeks, but it will take years to completely eliminate the consequences of this environmental disaster.
    As a result of pollution of the water and the coastal strip, many marine animals have died. On February 23, the Israeli government approved a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Environment Minister Gila Gamliel to allocate 45 million shekels to address the effects of oil pollution on the country’s Mediterranean coast. This decision should lead to an intensification of beach clean-up work. But it is not yet known what exactly the allocated funds will be spent on and whether special equipment will be purchased for cleaning the sea coast (previously, representatives of the Ministry of Ecology stated that manual cleaning is necessary).
    At the same time, it turned out that the government’s decision to allocate 15 million shekels for the National Program of Preparedness for Oil and Oil Products Spills at Sea, approved by the government under the leadership of Ehud Olmert, remained on paper without receiving a single shekel of funding. Only on February 21, the Ministry of Ecology admitted that at the time of the environmental disaster Israel did not have a subscription to receive information from the European satellite pollution monitoring system. According to representatives of the ministry, the previous subscription expired three months ago and negotiations were underway to extend it. It is not a fact that the presence of a subscription would have prevented pollution of the coast (stormy weather and low clouds interfered with the operation of satellites and a possible operation to clean the water surface), but without a subscription, the chances of this were even less. It was also found that only half of the coastal municipalities actually participate in the annual exercises to develop pollution scenarios, and even they have serious problems with the availability of equipment and technology. As a result, volunteers and soldiers are hand-cleaning the coastline.
    The fuel oil spill was not only a blow to the fauna of the Israeli coast, which is a tragedy in itself. This is direct damage to tourism, fisheries, marine infrastructures, etc., estimated at billions of shekels.

  245. I think the US should keep the sanctions against Iran, to force it to end destabilizing the region even if this will mean a nuclear bomb.
    Let’s be realistic what can Iran do with the bomb ? If they bomb Israel , its allies , Hezbollah and the Shiites of the Lebanon will be the first to suffer , since they are right on on the border , if Iran hits any of the Gulf countries more Iranians. on its side of the Gulf will die because it has more people . North Korea spent most of its wealth on making the bomb , but haven’t used it and its economy is in shambles and same for Pakistan . Israel has had the bombs for 50 years and never used any .
    The best is to ignore Iran , keep tightening the sanctions and let it eat its bomb

    1. It is hard to ignore Iran when they are attacking countries in the middle east to get attention. Sadly Biden has no clue what to do, maybe his care givers can give him some direction.

  246. This Covid loan didn’t need to be near 2 trillion dollars when only 9% was going to the actual Covid relief. The other 91% is going to special interest projects for the Democrats. God knows how much these corrupt Dems will funnel into their own back accounts.

  247. So what happens after the power goes out? France needs to send and occupying force and set up a provisional government. Push out the old warlords.

  248. I have a strong feeling that the corrupt politicians are going to pocket the hundreds of millions and give the poor the $5 million they allocated for oversight and in the end the poor will have to pay for the loan .
    This is how Lebanon under Hezbollah, president Aoun and Speaker B Berri is being run

  249. I just can’t believe it . The ruling class in Lebanon is a bunch of crooks that don’t give a damn about their country . They are willing to renege on the 2 million dollar payment even though this could set the whole capital of Lebanon on fire.
    They should all be hanged at the port and use some of the hazmat to set their bodies on fire

  250. The Israeli Ministry of the Environment has hired Black Cube, an
    international private intelligence and analytics firm, to identify the
    owners of the ship from which the oil products were discharged off the
    Israeli coast.
    Mako writes that thanks to the agency’s investigation, Israel will be able to sue the owners of the tanker for damages.
    The Emerald is owned by Oryx Shipping, which is owned by a family from
    Syria, according to the investigation. The company also owns about 30
    ships, some of which are so-called “ghost ships” – they change the name
    and port of registration. Oryx Shipping vessels are used primarily to
    deliver oil from Iran to Venezuela and Syria.
    Oryx Shipping has offices in the city of Piraeus in Greece and also owns the Iranian
    insurance company Islamic Club, which is managed from an office in
    Dubai. It was in this company, as previously reported, that the tanker was insured.
    At the same time, “Mako” writes that Black Cube has
    not yet been able to confirm the version of the Minister of the
    Environment that the release of oil into the sea was an “ecological
    terrorist attack” against Israel.
    The intelligence and analytical
    company Black Cube was founded in 2010 by former employees of the
    Israeli intelligence services and has offices in Tel Aviv, London and Madrid
