Hariri Plans March Against Hizbollah

February 15, 2011

February 15 2011- Militant Islam Monitor -On March 14 Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is planning a "Million Man March" against the Hizbollah takeover of the government. Hariri's father Rafik was killed by a car bomb in 2005. He was prime minister of Lebanon for ten years. The bomb was blamed on Syria and Hizbollah. A special tribunal was set up to investigate Hizbollah's role in the assassination. The terrorist organization had threatened a takeover of the government if they were indicted. They recently caused the government to fall and installed Najb Mukati as prime minister.

According to Israel National News:

"At a mass rally in Beirut Monday, Hariri said he would not join the new government being formed by Najb Mukati. Instead, as he told thousands of protesters at a rally commemorating the the assassination of his father, Rafik Hariri, he plans to lead a "million-man march" next month, evoking a similar event six years ago, when some one million protesters gathered to protest Syria's interference in Lebanese affairs." http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/142346
