A coalition of Lebanese groups, angered by the recent assassination of a prominent anti-Syrian journalist, called today for the ousting of Lebanon’s pro-Syrian President Emile Lahoud. The call came as anti-Syrian youth activists protested in Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, late today to press for Lahoud’s resignation and removal of pro-Syrian agents in Lebanon’s security services.The inevitable march of freedom continues - and it continues to SQUEEZE Assad. I expect a violent backlash by Assad's agents - in Lebanbion or Israel - very soon. STAY TUNED.
Today’s meeting of the coalition of anti-Syrian legislators and politicians came after An-Nahar newspaper general manager and legislator Gibran Tueni was killed in a December 12 car bombing. Tueni was the third anti-Syrian critic killed in similar circumstances since the February 14 blast that killed ex-Lebanese premier Rafik Hariri in Beirut.
