The War of the Others

by Roman Lederer from The Media Line

Jahija Kamar A-Din is still not sure if he can trust the announcement of Lebanon's Prime Minister Fuad Siniora, who 10 days ago declared that his government would crush Fatah Al-Islam. "The job is far from over," he says, pointing out that the militants are still receiving aid from nearby Syria. "The Syrian army might have left Lebanon in 2005, but members of its secret service, Mukhabarat, are still among us." And they, he claims, are supporting the conservative Salafi communities, which are also receiving money from Saudi Arabia.
