Moussawi Slams 'Baseless' Syrian Claims that Assassinations against Mufti Shaar Being Prepared

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP Nawwaf al-Moussawi slammed on Thursday claims by defected Syrian cleric Abdul Jalil Saeed that Syria was planning on assassinating Mufti of Tripoli and the North Sheikh Malek al-Shaar.

He said: “The claims are lies and baseless.”

“The accusations are a reflection of the insanity plaguing those people,” he added.

Shaar had revealed on Wednesday details surrounding the alleged death threats he had received and which made him decide to prolong his stay in Europe.

In an interview on Future TV, al-Shaar said: “I have received several phone calls and I even met with army officers who advised me to be cautious as my movements are being watched”.

Saeed had revealed in a taped interview that Ibrahim Hamad, a captain in the Syrian intelligence, had been collecting information about the northern Mufti.

"Hamad came to Beirut many times and met with several figures at the office of MP Nawwaf Moussawi,” he said.

"I have been informed by people in the Syrian Dar al-Fatwa that he (Hamad) was going to personally supervise the assassination operation from the Bekaa region,” he added, explaining that al-Shaar was supposed to be targeted near the residence of the Bekaa Mufti Mohammed Khalil al-Mayss.

Saeed also said that two members of the Lebanese Dar al-Fatwa are involved in this assassination attempt.

He revealed that the assassination plot against al-Shaar is linked to the case of former Minister Michel Samaha.

Samaha was arrested in August on charges of forming a criminal gang aimed at carrying out attacks in Lebanon at Syria's behest.

Syrian security chief Ali Mamlouk and another Syrian official identified as Colonel Adnan were also charged in the case.

Al-Shaar announced in early December that he will not be returning to Lebanon from a trip to Europe after he has allegedly received death threats.

Notice he did not deny meeting with the Syrian intelligence officer Ibrahim Hamad...

Of course he didn't. His speech is filled with loopholes. Anyway, what mister farso is really saying is:
"We plan and execute each and every assassination in Lebanon and al-Shaar was not on our hit list."

Lets see now:
-Imad Mughnieh / Ghazi Kenaan & Syrian Colonel responsible for HA/Syria military coordination - All executed after the 2005 Hariri bombing.
-STL identified and asked for apprehension of 4 HA suspects in Hariri bombing.
-HA refusal to hand over the suspects in Hariri bombing.
-Bombing/Assassinations campaign that started with Hariri murder strangely stopped when HA & M8 got their Cabinet Veto power in Doha accord.
-HA member identified as suspect in Butros Harb assasination attempt and called to appear in front of judge for questioning, but HA refuses to do so.
-HA and M8 threaten Al-Hassan/Al-Rifi over Samaha case, and Al-Hassan gets assassinated soon afterwards.

-And now, multiple stories & witnesses corroborate the assassination plot against Al-Shaar...
Hmmm....I know it is not a smoking gun...but it is a pretty long and incriminating circumstantial evidence list to ignore. I for one, am inclined to beleive the plot does exist, because the last time it was ignored Al-Hassan got killled.

Thumb benzona 20 December 2012, 19:29

I know why he is saying this. Because him and his party usually make the death threats, but this time it came from a Syrian spy that didn't consult with Hezbollah.

And who knows more about insanity than Nawwaf al-Moussawi... I know, a wise guy will say Michel Aoun but really I think it's a toss up.

How would he know everything is baseless if e wasn't involved with those who know if it is or isn't.

The world knows ASSad and Hizcocaine are behind all the Lebanon killings. They more they deny, they more we know it is true. They always deny the truth.

Look at his photo, he looks more Iranian than Lebanese. Note that I have nothing against the brave Iranian people at all.... But what is his place in the Lebanese political life?

mowaten, Sheikh Malek al-Shaar is a moderate and pro Mustaqbal ...dahhhhhhhhh and don't make false accusations....

Missing peace 21 December 2012, 19:02

Another example of mowaten biased mind!!
outraged because a sheikh pro hezbollah was killed ( which i condemned)but doesn t care about the others because against hezbollah!!! lol...

remember these:
A sniper killed Sheikh Khaled al-Baradei, 28. even if salafi it s execution style by your friends
Sheikh Ahmad Abdel-Wahed and his companion, Sheikh Mohammad al-Mereb, killed by the army...
Hassan Khaled assassinated in 1989 by Syria, your close friends.

we can keep on listing all the sheikhs executed by your friends too...

so stop your BS and propaganda to try and make believe only one side is evil and you are clean, laughable you are.... M8 stupidity at its best....

"one of a supposed assassination attempt which never happened. "
how can you know that? oh elmanar or alakhbar told you so? lol!

Missing peace 21 December 2012, 21:25

they never rushed... they were heading back to where they came from, the sheikh said he didn t want to go to halba anymore and got shot at...

Missing peace 21 December 2012, 21:31

"you can say who fired the sniper rifle? "
it came from the camp under hezbi and baath influence... M14 are there?

AND mowaten about "i'm denouncing the fake accusations based on nothing, " thing,
you took the example of one pro hezbi sheikh that was murdered to generalize your propagandist views on M14 making believe that they are only blood thirsty people...
typical M8 stance to depict the others as dangerous so to spread your hatred...

that s why i gave you examples of sheikhs also killed by people that are on your side (and we can add to that list...) to show you that before lecturing others you d better be clean before otherwise you have ZERO credibility!!

"Around 80 gunmen, supporters of the Future Movement or allied Islamist groups"

Al Manar and Al Akhbar are your sources!!! VERY biased and not really very believable...Sheikh Asmar is NOT a moderate...regardless, his killing is senseless....
