Witness in Sharon Trial Assasinated
31 Jan 2002
Sabra and Chatila Witness in Sharon trial assassinated. Was this another Israeli assasination?
The assassination of Ellie Hobeika and three other persons on January 24, two days after having met three Belgians (two officials and a reporter) who had travelled to Lebanon to get more evidence regarding war crime charges against Ariel Sharon, made by 23 Palestinians. Belgium has a unique system that allows war crime charges from anywhere in the world.

Hobeika was a hired gun who worked for the Israelis in 1982 at the time of the Sabra Chatila massacre, where 800 to 3000 innocent Palestinians were slaughtered. In 1985 he changed hats and went to work for the Syrians where he prospered until returning to Lebanon in 1999.

Josy Dubie, the Belgian said that without a doubt the assassination of Hobeika was to silence him, since he had promise to make revelations in the Sharon case. Emile Lahoud, the Lebanese president said that it was clear to him that Israel did not want Hobeika to testify at the Sharon trial in Belgium. Me Luc Walleyn one of the three lawyers for the Palestinians said the assassination was an obvious attempt to sabotage the trial.

I heard some brief news about this assassination on U.S. TV. But why was the real story of this assassination not covered. The Israelis have had a history of assassinating whomever they deem to be enemies, could this be another assassination done on orders from Sharon?

The killing was very professional. Obviously, the Israelis have denounced all accusations as unfounded. In about a week Sharon the right-wing racist meets with Bush, his buddy.

God bless.
