إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Military Tribunal Judge Imad al-Zein interrogated on Monday a Lebanese man on charges of collaborating with Israel, reported the National News Agency.

He is accused of collaborating with Israel, meeting with Israeli officials in a number of foreign countries and providing them with information on the Lebanese and Syrian armies, as well as the members of Hizbullah.

An arrest warrant was issued against him and he may face the death penalty if convicted.

The suspect cooperated with Israel for nearly 22 years in return for massive sums of money, said NNA.

The retired engineer who used to work at a state institution, provided Israel with information of the location of the Lebanese and Syrian army in Lebanon when the latter was deployed in the country.

He also provided it with information on the residences of a number of Hizbullah officials, including former party chiefs Sheikh Abbas Moussawi, who was assassinated in 1992, and Sobhi Tufaili, as well as Hizbullah cleric Sheikh Mohammed Yazbeck.

In addition, he gave Israel information on private and public institutions that were targeted by Israeli strikes in the July 2006 war.

The suspect possessed a fake Palestinian passport that enabled him to enter Israel.

His interrogation will continue on Tuesday.

The state of Israel gave this man a job, a duty the state of Lebanon failed to do.

He also did every democratic Lebanese citizen a favor by giving the hezbi terrorists' coordinates. We should reward him.

Treason is not patriotism. Anyone convicted of spying to any foreign country (ANY) should get the maximum penalty allowed by law. BUT YES - if we do not build a real country, you will have people questioning their loyalties.

No Flamer, it just means that he was more patriotic than most politicians because he was doing Lebanon a favor by helping our Israeli neighbors. He was heading in the right direccion, doesn't mean he's a friend.

First part of the post is extremely idiotic. Getting a job spying for a foreign power cannot be justified by lack of employment opportunities at home. Should we also absolve the shabbiha mass-slaughterers in Syria because the opposition failed to give them better jobs?

As for helping to ridd the country of Hezbollah terrorists, it is probably the only good part of his job description.

Primesuspect, shame on you. Thats disgusting. A spy should recieve the death penalty. He didnt do us any favours whatsoever, he did it to get some cash thats all. Spies are not patriotic in any sence. This is why people dont take m14 seriously, cuz you dont wanna take on hezballah but you want israel to do it for you and support spying for them. Shame on you. No wonder you keep getting setbacks. And this is coming from someone who is neither m8 nor m14. Oh and occupiers are not neighbours, they are occupiers and criminals you coward. Go fight hezballah if your a man instead of counting on baby murderers to do it for you. You dont even live in lebanon. What a coward.
