A member of the Hariri parliamentary bloc told me this: two years ago, Hariri parliamentary deputy, Walid `Idu, who was a militia leader in the thuggish Murabitun militia under the code name of Wajih Sa`adah, hosted a dinner party in honor of the chief of Syrian intelligence in North Lebanon. When the guest of honor arrived, `Idu gave him the military salute. As you (who follow Lebanese politics) know, this `Idu is now a loud voice in favor of "sovereignty" and "independence."
