Hizbullah Planning to Take Over Lebanon?

(Hudson Institute-New York) Khaled Abu Toameh - Hizbullah, with the help of Iran, may be planning to stage a coup in Lebanon to cover up and divert attention from its role in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's plan to visit Lebanon in the coming weeks should be seen in the context of Hizbullah's plot to take over the country. The UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon is about to publish the results of its investigation into the killing of the former prime minister. According to reliable sources, the report is expected to hold Hizbullah responsible for the assassination. Now that its true face is about to be unmasked, Hizbullah is panicking and searching for ways to get out of the sinkhole. Nawwaf al-Moussawi, a Hizbullah MP in the Lebanese parliament, warned that any Lebanese who accepts the international tribunal's indictment findings would be killed as a "collaborator" with Israel and the U.S. According to reports from Lebanon, Hizbullah militiamen have been deployed in several "sensitive" locations throughout the country in preparation for overthrowing the government and taking over the entire country. Hizbullah's message to the world is: If you publish the truth - that we killed Hariri - we will seize control over Lebanon and turn it into another Iran."
