Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
One of the extremist groups allied to ISIS was named after Rafik Hariri. A Former Lebanese Prime Minister.
In Syria, if the covert CIA program had stopped giving you weapons, you either had to ally yourself to the Salafi preachers, or you had to pretend to be more religious than the next jihadist. The above image was taken from an EU report on terrorist funding.
Rafik Hariri was Sunni.
Rafic Baha El Deen Al Hariri Arabic pronunciation: [rafiːq ħariːriː] 1 November 1944 – 14 February 2005) was a Lebanese business tycoon and the Prime Minister of Lebanon from 1992 to 1998 and again from 2000 until his resignation on 20 October 2004. He headed five cabinets during his tenure. Hariri dominated the country’s post-war political and business life and is widely credited with reconstructing the capital Beirut after the 15-year civil war.
Hariri was assassinated on 14 February 2005 when explosives equivalent to around 1800 kg of TNT were detonated as his motorcade drove past the St. George Hotel in Beirut. Alleged Hezbollah supporters Salim Jamil Ayyash, Hassan Habib Merhi, Hussein Hassan Oneissi, and Assad Hassan Sabra have been indicted for the assassination and are currently being tried in absentia by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
Hariri’s killing was a catalyst for dramatic political change in Lebanon. The massive protests of the Cedar Revolution helped achieve the withdrawal of Syrian troops and security forces from Lebanon, and a change in governments.
