A house divided cannot stand

'The Syrians did it.'
'Hell no, it was the Israeli
'What are you saying, can't you see this assassination has 'CIA' written all over it?'

Think again mates. Last week a UN-investigation unit stated that the murder of former Lebanese PM Rafiq Hariri on 14th February 2005 was masterminded by some criminal network. So where does that leave Walid Jumblatt, Saad Hariri and so many others for that matter, who are still dead certain that the Syrian government was behind this horrific murder.

It is corny, but time will tell and somehow I think Lebanon will be in for a hot summer. Still no president and so many parties vying for power - not just inside Lebanon.

Oh, and why did I not say anything about Fitna... because IMHO it proved a storm in a teacup. Wilders lived up to his promise that he was going to make a film that portrays the Koran as a fascist book that can be used by fanatics to incite violence and which preaches the oppression of women and homosexuals.

What really worries me is the other anti Koran film by Ehsan Jami. Yes, that photomodel like politician in his early twenties who is of Iranian origin. Jami rose to public fame when he launched his Committee for Ex Muslims last year. His film, slated for release later this month, is bound to hammer home his immense frustration towards Iran, Islam and the prophet.
