Open letter to the Honorable Nick Rahall

The Honorable Nick Rahall US House of Representatives 2307 Rayburn HOB Washington, DC 20515 27/4/2001
Dear Representative Rahall.

Lebanon witnessed ups and downs through the course of history from its existence. The conspiracy to weaken Lebanon, and sell it to Syrian domination as a reward for the current package deal for so-called " peace " is continuing; despite our best to counter it and establish a free and Sovereign Lebanon, that would serve the best interest of a lasting peace for all involved.

Dear Mr. Rahall: I am a United States Citizen from a Lebanese origin trying to be the voice of freedom for my oppressed people in Lebanon. As you know of course Syria has more than 35,000 thousands troops still occupying Lebanon, and over 1000 secret service agents watching every move of any Lebanese who tries to openly speak against the Syrian occupation of my country. Such behavior is met with severe punishment and torture by Syrian authorities using anything from electric shock up to 5000 volts, down to beating and other methods of torture by hungry vicious dogs and rats while the victim is unconscious causing him or her to die at times. I will provide you with a web site so you can check what is going on yourself, I am not making up any stories it is the honest truth.

Lebanese Groups: The puppet Government of Lebanon, and its Syrian proxies, including the subversive groups placed on the list of International Terrorism, they do not represent the Lebanese identity or its people. These are the same groups who assassinated late president elect Bashir Gemayal, late president elect Rene Moawad, Druze leader Kamal Joumblat, Sunni Mufti Hasan Khalid, leader of the free tiger party Dani Shamoun his wife and 2 little kids with thousands of other Lebanese patriots, for the purpose of swallowing Lebanon and making it a Syrian protectorate. These groups support the drug trades to the U.S., have exported terrorism, exiled Lebanese leaders overseas, and jailed others are assisting in the destruction of Lebanon today. Aside from the assassination of political leaders, Syria is directly responsible for the killing of more than 200 civilians on Oct 13 1991 execution style with hands tied behind their back, and their faces maimed so they cannot be identified. This all happened for peace in Lebanon as Syria claims to have done.

Syria's secret agents are in every government office, they have posts in front of our presidential palace, the Ministry of defense, the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of communication, Universities and so fourth. The phones of every government official are taped, no one is allowed to say anything against the Syrians, you do so at your own risk no protection by the Lebanese government, who is suppose to uphold the law and protect its citizens. Even though the Lebanese army constitute of 70,000 man, and more than capable of securing all borders, and disarming all militias still prevented from doing so by Syria.

The current puppet government officials has done nothing to protect the Lebanese people, but instead are destroying the country, killing any hope of having any democratic process, abusing human rights and free speech, harassing any one dares to speak out openly against Syria, forcing the Lebanese to disperse all over the world, and disregarding all requests by mothers inquiring about their innocent children's who are detained in Syria for no reason; experiencing horrible torture by secret service agents since 1990.
