Hezbollah's Abdul Latif Fneish, Behaving Just As You Would Expect

Yasser Arafat may have been, relative to what he had to work with, which was billions in aid from the Infidels rather than trillions in undeserved oil-and-gas revenues, the most corrupt and avaricious of all the recent Muslim Arab leaders. Certainly he was far ahead even of Qaddafy, Ben Ali, and Mubarak. And his example has been followed by Mahmoud Abbas and other PLO henchmen. And by Hamas rulers.

And by Hezbollah, too, whose operatives in the West raise money through drugs, car-stealing, and so on. It's what they know best, and besides, the Infidels owe it to them. It's the Jizyah they think they have a right to collect.

From The Daily Star:

Brother of Hezbollah minister charged in drugs scandal

BEIRUT: A brother of Hezbollah Minister Mohammad Fneish was one of seven people to be charged Saturday over the recent case of illegally imported drugs into the country, judicial sources said.

Judge Claude Karam, the public prosecutor for Mount Lebanon, filed charges against seven people, including Abdul Latif Fneish, in the case where illegally imported drugs entered the market through the forging of documents.

The charges filed Saturday included for forging official documents and laboratory reports as well as putting public health at risk by allowing unlicensed drugs into the country and distributing them in the market, the sources said.

The case of illegally imported drugs was brought to light in early November by Future MP Atef Majdalani who said over 100 types of drugs had been illegally imported into the country with forged stamps, health minister signatures and Beirut Arab University laboratory tests.

Referring to the 62 medicines whose documents were discovered to be forged in October by the Beirut Arab University, Health Minister Ali Hasan Khalil said Thursday that all the warehouses involved in the scandal have been shut down and that the drugs were confiscated.

However, Majdalani insists that several hundred other types of medicines were in the country thanks to forged paperwork.

Soon after the scandal came to light, Hezbollah State Minister Mohammad Fneish issued a statement saying he would not protect anyone found guilty in the case.
