The Latest Lebanon Savagery

January 10th, 2014 - 10:55 am

BURNED

Two-thirds of an “historic” collection of 80,000 books, purposely destroyed by fire:

“The library owner, Father Ebrahim Surouj, met with Islamic leaders in Tripoli. It became clear the priest had nothing to do with the pamphlet [insulting Islam], and a demonstration that had been planned in protest over the incident was called off,” the source said.

However, Ashraf Rifi, former head of the Internal Security Forces, told AP the attack had nothing to do with a pamphlet and was, in fact, triggered by speculation that Father Surouj had written a study on the internet that insulted Islam.

Any excuse to destroy anything not explicitly pro-Islam.

Why is so much ink (why even 1 drop?) spilled over authorship of the pamphlet? Would the crime be any less heinous if he were the author?

RT News and Father Surouj, courageous as he may be, are playing the barbarian's game.

Dogs bite men, barbarians loot, pillage and destroy because looting, pillaging, and destroying is fun. That is why they are barbarians.

Nothing new here.
