Lebanese cabinet minister and strong opponent of Syrian influence -Gemael Assassinated


BEIRUT, Lebanon, Nov. 21 — Pierre Gemayel, a Lebanese cabinet minister and strong opponent of Syrian influence in Lebanon, was gunned down in his car here on Tuesday afternoon
With Mr. Gemayel’s death, there may now be too few ministers to pass any measures, and it appears that if the government were to lose one more minister it would automatically collapse.The killing also is likely to complicate any American effort to enlist Syria’s help to stabilize Iraq.
All terrorist attacks that took place after the Syrians withdrew last year have targeted Christian areas and Christian leaders only, why?Simply put, the intended aim of Syria is to repeat history, where Lebanese Christians, fragile in the context of an Islamic neighborhood, have asked them in the past to come to Lebanon to protect them. But the Lebanese Christians have now matured and are no longer falling for that gambit... posted by Mustapha

I'm sure Iran is all choked up about this. Now it's one step closer to swallowing Lebanon like the snake that it is.
