Fneish was involved in counterfeit drugs, not narcotics, but nice diversion of the subject.

There are proofs that captagon is being used in the indoctrination of Takfiri conscripts in Syria. No wonder their acts are way out of anything anyone has seen.

@phoenix : thanks for the reply with the sources.
But to be honest that doesn't look very serious and objective.
First 4 are from alalam, ie iranian official channel.
Fifth is LiveLeak, ie a video sharing website where any user can post anything.
6th is is a iranian site.
The only one site I knew was the last one,NPR.
The journalist clearly says she's not sure who exactly is dealing in the captagon business, accusing more Hizbiran and syrian government, but without real evidence. We, lebanese, are not lacking those evidence, we know that for Iran and its lackeys drug dealing is halal especially if its target sunnis.

So, phoenix, that's the second time u caught trying to manipulate naharneters and accuse syrian rebels using dodgy sources or just changing the content of an article.

First time was with the bbc articles and the numbers of takfiris.
U got excellent English so this is clearly delibarate manipulation, not misunderstanding.

Or maybe naievity,wishful thinking, total lack of critical and analytical mind.
NOW I understand how u could post BS like KSA buying christian heads, paying for maronites to leave lebanon, ect...
