The probe is expected to implicate elements of Hezbollah in Hariri’s death.

  2. Mr. Vice President –

    The US may NOT be the enemy of Islam.
    Islam, however, IS an enemy of the US –
    By Its Own Choice. Please keep that in mind. Dr. Shalit

  3. Urrah2222, you took the words from my mouth. Just because the USA maintains that the islamic world is not its enemy, does not mean that the islamic world is not at war with us normal people here in the West. And pretending otherwise is a dangerous transference of intent onto the enemy. Wanting them to be our friend does not make them our friend. Until islam has been vanquished there will be no means of cohabitation. islam is an enemy that will have to be perpetually kept in thrall to us if we want to sleep peacefully in our beds.
