Arrest Warrant against Lebanese for Collaborating with Israel

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Military Examining Magistrate Imad al-Zain issued on Wednesday an arrest warrant against a Lebanese on charges of attempting to collaborate with Israel.

The state-run National News Agency reported that al-Zain questioned a citizen identified by his initials as F. Y.

He issued an arrest warrant against him for trying to contact Israel.

The suspect could be sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor.

Lebanese authorities have arrested more than 100 people on suspicion of collaborating with the Israeli spy agency Mossad since April 2009, including high-ranking security and telecommunications officials.

My name is David Maalouf, I have some friends in Israel, what's the problem? am I going to get sentenced too? I've authored a book.

That depends on which David Maalouf you are. If you're the celebrated author of "Remembering Babylon", you can rest at ease, since you have an Australian nationality and are not obliged to abide by Lebanon's draconian laws. If you're a different David Maalouf, live primarily in Lebanon, and have only a Lebanese nationality, it might be more problematic for you. You can be referred to the magistrate if you were ever accused of shaking the hand of an Israeli tourist in a French restaurant in London (I'm not making this up).

If Hassan Nasrallah is now collaborating with the US and by proxy, Israel, shouldn't he be sentenced too ?

Or does this only apply to non-Hezbollah supporters ?

And isn't collaborating with a foreign state, including IRAN, SYRIA and SAUDI a crime against the national security of Lebanon ?

Point is, Hassan Nasrallah and his organisation should be sentenced for HIGH TREASON because their entire funding, weapons and ORDERS come from Iran !

Don't get me wrong, i'm not defending the guy in the article above. Just pointing to another criminal who believes he's above all laws !

They should be sentenced to 15 years of labor and build a nice wall around our borders. This way, they will be really protecting Lebanon from foreign invasion and takfiri infiltrations :)

It is evident that you are unable to tell the difference between friends of the nation and enemies. To help your feeble thick brain tell the difference I suggest that you repeat 100 times the fact that Israel is our sworn enemy while Iran and Syria are our stalwart friends

@Abu Quahafa:

1- Collaborating with ANY state is reasons for treason ! Only governments collaborate with states, not individuals. And certainly not armed organisations. They either answer to the Lebanese state or are traitors who answer and depend on Iran financially. They are traitors !

2- Bashar's syria is an ennemy to Lebanon. They have butchered Lebanese, robbed the country and controlled Lebanon with the help of local traitors (Jamil el Sayed, Lahoud, Hezbollah n co ...). Bashar's syria is responsible for all the events that are occuring even today in Lebanon. Anyone who sides with Bashar's syria is a traitor !

Hezbollah does not have the monopoly of deciding who our friends and ennemies are at their convenience !

Anyone collaborating with a foreign state outside official government relations is a SPY for that state and TRAITOR to Lebanon !

Of course FC,Bachar and his father have killed more Lebanese than israel since 1948.

I believe it our duty to report SHN if know of his whereabouts. But I don't think israel I interested, as long as he exists, they can squeeze us like lemons and they love it. Perhaps Assir would be more interested in settling his score with him.

@Mowaten : your comment is all the more dumb :

It is not normal for Hezbollah to REPORT and TAKE ORDERS from a foreign country. It is treason.

If you find this normal, then you too are a traitor.

i dont believe that it is the case, but if you do then prove it

Let's see if he's going to be two years of holidays like fayez karam (FPM).

The biggest collaborator with Israel is Bachar el Assad who ensured a safe border in the Golan heights for decades.

From Israel's perspective, its safest border Israel is its northeastern border with Syria. To those who subscribe to the prevailing logic of "resistance for palestine and hatred for Israel", Assad should be arrested for high treason

Thumb lebanon_first 18 December 2013, 19:25


One of the biggest fights occuring now is between Assad and HA.

Assad wants instability in lebanon (for obvious reasons). HA wants stability in Lebanon. The biggest point of contention between these 2 is this point.
I want Assad to lose there.

Assad, if he remains in power will never give peace to lebanon. I want him to lose power in syria.

As for the insurance contract, hilarious.
