Ahdab, Fatfat, NY Times, and Impeachment

There a number of issues I would like to talk about that have occupied my mind this weekend:


  1. MP Mosbah Ahdab suddenly was missing from meetings and gatherings since the Opposition delegation's return from Europe two weeks ago. Just yesterday, he appeared on the Future news hour giving out a press release from his house in Tripoli. I just realized then that he is being threatened; he even complained of threats to the Opposition members' lives, their families lives and their property, but of course he did not talk about himself. This is a sad situation...
  2. Simultaneously then I was able to make the connection with MP Ahmad Fatfat. He also did complain of phone threats (but this person is always more blunt and talks about details) during an informal press conference the Opposition held after the US members of Congress visited MP Hamade's house. Did the brace that MP Fatfat is wearing around his neck mean anything to you? To me it means that someone has attacked him and twisted his neck...
  3. The third issue is with today's news article I read by Neil McFarquhar from the NY Times that is absolutely enlightening! It basically lays out the truth about Hariri's struggle with Syria since the summer and how he had a plan to oust Lahoud by winning the majority of the Parlimentary seats after the elections. Click on the following link to read the full text: http://www.tayyar.org/tayyar/articles.php?article_id=2283&type=press_news. A Must Read!
  4. Finally, I read that President Lahoud will not be ousted unless impeached. For God's sake, even American Presidents consider outright resignation before impeachment is dealt with. Who does Lahoud think himself?
"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."

Quick question, I have not found any news on the visit by an US congressional delegation to lebanon, which is really weird cause that is pretty big news, given they are not meeting with the putative official government. anybody have anything from that? Just curious

Interestingly enough, the Daily Star and Naharnet do not have anything on the US Congressional delegation's visit to Lebanon this weekend. I, however, found an Arabic news source, in Al-Mustaqbal's news article: http://www.almustaqbal.com/stories.aspx?StoryID=113066

I got the news from Lebanese TV.

Don't worry, he has masters, and when he gets to be too much of a liability he will step down.
