Life was getting a little sedate lately, but we’re back in the headlines again. It seems Hezbollah is now directly linked to the Hariri murder. Somehow I had heard this theory already before, it is not new, but it is bound to spice things up a bit some 2 weeks before the parliamentary elections.
The story is dropped by the German magazine Der Spiegel, and it is an interesting read, but I do remember that when I was in Journalism College, Der Spiegel was seen as a rather ‘sensational’ publication, which in general is not a positive characteristic in the media. So there’s a distinct smell of fish here. The author of the article, Erich Follath, also published a book titled; ‘Who shot Jesus Christ’. That one is fiction, though.
Hezbollah, equally predictable, has denied the charges. And the saga continues. This is better than Desperate Housewives.
