The Secret Behind The Suicide

A couple of mornings ago, we woke up to learn that MP Mosbah Ahdab's apartment in Tripoli was shot on, while Ahdab and his family were sleeping. The investigation on this incident moved fast, first finding out the identity of the perpetrator: a security guard who works for Ahdab and of Syrian nationality. Then we learn that the security guard was arrested and placed in solitary confinement.

Today, Assafir reported that Jihad Al-Akleh was found dead in his jail cell; he has strangled himself to death with his suit (how? not sure, and the Assafir article does not explicitly say strangled, but I deduced it. how could then someone commit suicide with his suit?).

I hope in the coming days, the secret behind this incident would be revealed.

"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."

Oh didn't you hear?

A joke making the rounds is:

"Abdulhalim Khaddam attempted suicide a week ago in Paris. He survived. He wasn't home."

How you ask? He just finished reading Ghazi Kanaan's book: "101 creative ways to kill yourself".

And somewhere in Brazil, Rana Koleilat is waiting for her FeExed copy .

An age old "rule for living" that all employees should stick to.

Never have sexual affairs with your employees, otherwise they just may come and shoot on your house rather than on your face.!!

The media circus continues to pass on entirely unsubstantiated information that's little more than gossip after it's been passed through a chain of four or five people.

The worst are the propagandists who make claims that Ahdab put the guy up to it. It's like Charles Ayoub contending that Mehlis is a bad investigator because he drinks and dances.
