LEBANESE MUSLIM EX-PATS: A FIFTH COLUMN FOR ASSAD?

"Reuters": Australian police set up road blocks and searched cars heading for Sydney's beaches on Saturday to prevent a second weekend of racial violence between ethnic Lebanese youths and local surfers. ... Racist text messages and e-mails have been circulating calling for violence this Sunday and local media has reported talk of Lebanese youths calling themselves the "Lions of Lebanon" coming from across the country to fight at the beaches this weekend.

The Australians have been having a problem with their LEBANESE MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS. Churches have been torched. And more violence is threatened.

I WONDER: Are these immigrants from south Lebanon - stronghold of Hizb'Allah, or are they really SYRIANS, (since Lebanon was OCCUPIED by Syria for 25 years)? [YEAH: These self-identified Lebanese immigrants MIGHT actually be Syrian! Surely the Syrians - who ran Lebanon with an iron fist - could have given them Lebanese passports to make it easier for them to migrate, no!?]

I mean, wouldn't most of the REAL Lebanese who migrated from Lebanon since the civil war and since Israeli withdrawal have been Christian (as most of the people who have migrated from the West Bank, since Arafat's return there in 1993, have been Christian)!?

And if they are really Hizb'Allah-types or pro-Syrian Lebanese or really Syrians, might they be more prediposed to islamofascism and instigating an intifada - perhaps even with the encouragement of the Syrians or some other jihadoterrorist group!??! Especially now, as more pressure is brought to bear on Assad - and thereby on Hizb'Allah - might they be itching for a fight and/or looking for an excuse to riot!?

Just asking. Because IF this is the case, then other nations with concentrations of Lebanese and Syrian immigrants who have immigrated since 1975 MIGHT have a problem brewing...

I AM GAMING HERE, BUT FOR A REASON: (1) Assad's murderous regime has proven it not above using ANY means, INCLUDING assassination, and (2) on 12/12 Assad made a rather BLATANT THREAT: "The Middle East is the heart of the world, and Syria is the heart of the Middle East," Assad said. "If the situation in Syria and Iraq isn't good, the whole region will become unstable and the entire world will pay for that." I believe that what he is REALLY saying is that he will try to make the whole world pay for destabilizing of his regime. Sicne he cannot do that with cruise missiles or a navy, he would have to use surrogates: Arab/Muslim jihadoterrorists.

Saddam made a similar - though perhaps even more blatant threat when we first put his back up against the wall in 1991: SADDAM:

"The United States wants to secure the flow of oil. This understandable and known. But it must not deploy methods which the United States says it disapproves of -- flexing muscles and pressure. If you use pressure, we will deploy pressure and force. We know that you can harm us although we do not threaten you. But we too can harm you. Everyone can cause harm according to their ability and their size. We cannot come all the way to you in the United States, but individual Arabs may reach you."

Maybe what I'm suggesting is that the Australians ought to be doing MORE than merely monitoringtheir domestic TEXT MESSAGING; they should be monitoring the email and phone calls between their Lebanese Muslim communtiy and Syria and Lebanon. And Iran.

Check out a funny site dedicated to the absurdity and satire nature of saying "It's All George Bush's Fault!"

Now there's something I hadn't thought of! They may say that they're Lebanese, but by [de-facto] origin, they could be Syrian, and supporters of Bashar's own dictatorship! And yes, the authorities should be taking more proper steps to monitor the Muslims there for possible terror ties to Syria and Iran. Let's remember of course that they had a very serious case of al Qaeda operatives who were trying to target a nuclear reactor in the Victoria/NSW area, and who were thankfully captured before they could do any serious damage.
