it is a known fact that so-called salafis are finaced by mikati, safadi and hizbushaitan to reduce mustaqbal popularity.
therefore it cannot be mustaqbal.
moreover, when you deal with extremists, you are bound to loose control over them, and a perfect example would be bin laden and the us.
the fifth column is definitely linked to the Syrian regime who has been trying desperately to create sectarian strife as already demonstrated by the samaha case.

no mowaten: it is proven by security sources In both FSI and army. check this from people on the inside you might know.
furthermore, mikati and safadi never even denied they are financing them in spite of multiple declarations accusing them.
as well hizbushaitan never denied what a salafi sheikh in Tripoli said during a television interview they were getting their weapons from hizbushaitan.
so please spare us stupid comments and deal with it.

you are 100% wrong. Syria is behind the security incidents. Not M8.

M8 happens to be allied with syria because of circumstances. True. But M8 are not instigating these kinds of incidents. they are suffering from them because these incidents are making them loose popularity. You have to see shades of grey.
