A Lebanese “intellectual,” playwright, actor and “journalist” named Ziad Itani has just been arrested for his role in an Israeli plot to murder government officials. From what news reports are releasing, he appears to be a liberal secular humanist type – imagine my shock.
Apparently, Itani was using his position among Lebanon’s elite to track the movements of current Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq, as well as retired official Abdul Rahim Mrad. The kikes are out for blood.
The Israelis were paying him for the information.
Lebanese authorities arrested prominent writer and actor Ziad Itani on Friday on charges of “collaborating” with Israel and gathering information on political figures, judicial sources said.
Itani was detained “after several months of monitoring, follow-up and investigations within and outside” Lebanon, said the State Security Directorate General, in a statement carried by Lebanon’s National News Agency.
It said Itani, who is in his 40s, was being questioned “on charges of collaborating and communicating with the Israeli enemy”.
He had allegedly confessed to having been “tasked to monitor a group of high-level political figures” and their associates.
The security services also said he had been assigned the job of collecting information on “two prominent political figures” whose identities would be disclosed at a later stage.
(((Western))) media is being quite cagey about what this guy was up to.
Here is a more detailed explanation.
Prominent satirical actor and playwright Ziad Itani has been arrested on charges of “collaborating with the Israeli enemy,” Lebanon’s State Security agency confirmed on Friday evening.
In a statement, State Security said Itani was arrested in a “special preemptive counter-espionage operation” after “several months of surveillance, follow-up and investigations inside and outside Lebanon.”
“During interrogation, and after being faced with proofs and evidence, he confessed to the charges and to the missions he was tasked to carry out in Lebanon,” State Security added.
It said the tasks involved “monitoring a number of senior political figures and deepening ties with their close assistants with the aim of obtaining from them the largest number of details pertaining to their lives and tasks with an emphasis on their movements.”
According to the statement, the Israelis also asked Itani to provide them with “extensive information about two prominent politicians, whose identities will be revealed in later statements.”
The detainee had also been tasked with “working on the formation of a Lebanese network that paves the way for advancing the principle of normalization with Israel and promoting Zionist thought among intellectuals” in addition to “submitting reports about the responses of all components of Lebanese society after the political developments of the past two weeks in the Lebanese arena.”
“The Directorate General of State Security is following up on the detainee’s case under the supervision of the competent judicial authorities and further details will be disclosed to the Lebanese public opinion in due time,” State Security added.
Itani’s brother, Riad, confirmed to An Nahar newspaper in a phone call that “Ziad has been detained since yesterday and is undergoing interrogation.”
“The family has not been able to contact him to know the reasons behind his arrest,” Riad added.
A security source meanwhile told al-Jadeed television that Itani has “confessed to contacting a female Israeli officer in Turkey who asked for information related to a plot to assassinate Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq and ex-minister Abdul Rahim Mrad.”
“Itani confessed to receiving money transfers from the Israeli officer, who was supposed to meet him in Lebanon after entering the country using a foreign passport,” the source added.
In the current global order, a state assassinating government officials is a serious offense that brings with it diplomatic consequences.
That is, except if you’re Israel. Whatcha gonna do Goy, call the cops on the cops?
Israel is busy poking and prodding around Lebanon to find the weak link, and if there’s one thing Jews are good at it’s that.
The Lebanese government and Hezbollah better keep their powder dry. All “peace offers” from the US and Europe in exchange for putting down their weapons are a ruse to disarm them so the Zionists can do them like Gaza.
Fortunately, it looks like they’re on guard. Hopefully they make an example of this traitor.
War is on the horizon!
