    UN Hariri trial opens

    Tribunal Opens Trial in Assassination of Lebanon's Hariri
    January 16, 2014

    A U.N.-backed tribunal has opened the trial against four men accused in the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri. Hariri died when a van packed with explosives blew up in Beirut, killing 21 other people and wounding 231. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon began the trial in the Netherlands Thursday against four members of the militant group Hezbollah, who are being tried in absentia.

    Hezbollah has denied any involvement in the attack, and denounced the tribunal as a conspiracy by Israel and the United States. Prosecutors allege the four men took part in a conspiracy to kill Hariri. Two of them are facing charges of actually carrying out the bombing, while prosecutors claim the other two used phone calls to news agencies and a fake videotaped confession to make a false claim of responsibility.

    Hezbollah has done everything in its power to quash/delay this legal proceeding.

    IMO, There will never be justice for this. They are not capable of it.

    Everything is a conspiracy and everything involves the Israeli's and Americans.
    Fortitude.....The strength to persist...The courage to endure.
