Violations of Lebanese privacy laws

The Hariri branch of the government in Lebanon, the private militia known as Far` Al-Ma`lumat (the Intelligence Branch, which is run simultaneously by the CIA and the Saudi intelligence service) has made requests to the Lebanese government to make available all contents of text messages between the Lebanese people over the two months period that preceded the assassination of the ill-cited, Wisam Al-Hasan.  They also want to have access to the passwords of Facebook of the Lebanese people.  There was not an outcry in Lebanon and the Western journalists working in Lebanon won't bother to report on this matter and Human Rights Watch office in Beirut is busy synchronizing their statements with the Hariri political orientations.  This is one of the worst breaches of Lebanese personal freedoms probably ever.
