Considering that Hassan Nasrallah just yesterday inveighed mightily against Israel for killing Imad Mugniyah and practically threatened doom on world Jewry, I don’t know what to make of this Haaretz story:
Syrian investigators probing the assassination of Hezbollah terror chief Imad Mughniyah suspect that “official security organizations operating in Arab nations” may have been involved in the incident, Hezbollah-affiliated Lebanese newspaper “Al-Akhbar” reported Saturday.
…”Al Akhbar” reported that several of the suspects arrested in connection to the killing were not civilians. On Friday, a Lebanese source said that the majority of the suspects detained by Syria in connection to the assassination were Palestinians.
Which Arab nations do the Syrians think would participate in such a killing? Lebanon possibly, which was part of the theory I advanced a few days ago in a post. The fact that some suspects detained were Palestinian is also strange and tantalizing. Is this a red herring? Why would any Palestinians, whose cause Mugniyah had served earlier in his career, wish him dead? Unless perhaps they are referring to Palestinians living in Lebanon, which might make more sense. Though I always thought of such Palestinians as being roughly allied with Hezbollah rather than opposed to it.
