Another Lebanese army officer accused of spying for Israel

From Ya Libnan:
Judge Saqr Saqr of Lebanon’s military court on Wednesday charged Colonel Antoine Abu Jaoudeh with spying for the enemy (Israel), meeting with Israeli Mossad agents abroad and providing them with information on the resistance and army in exchange for money from 2006 until his arrest earlier this month.

This brings to four the number of active duty army personnel arrested on charges of espionage.

More than 100 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for Israel since April 2009, including members of the security forces and telecom employees.

Five Lebanese have been sentenced to death for spying for the Mossad so far, including two who were sentenced Tuesday.
Some of the comments are fascinating.

As bad as this sounds, I really dont see any difference with this colonel spying for isreal or SSNP spying for syria, to be quite honest, wahab, beik, aoun and the rest of the spies should meet the same fate as abu jaoudeh. It shouldnt make any difference who the country you are spying for is, its treason! and its harming your own country and its people.

More Lebanese were killed by the Lebanese warlords like Gaega, Bashir Gemayel, Jumblat, Berri , and others like them, than even Those killed by Syria and Israel Combined. I wish all of us will start doing some self examinations. Look each other in the eye, and have the guts to admit the mistakes we’ve made. Look at the leadership we have, and tell them that they are killers. Stop following, blindly, the same leaders who are producing more of themselves. Stop the sectarian instigation, and start looking at ways to improve our political structure so we can have a better Lebanon. Our Problems didn’t start with Iran or Syria. They started when we adopted a sectarian system that forced every sect to seek support and protection in a different country. Iran wasn’t around when Israel started attacking Lebanon back in the 40’s and 50’s. Syria wasn’t in Lebanon either. ...Where will all the hatred take us? Another civil war? We’ve been there, and we know ( I hope) the pain of that.

Indeed, h/a [Hezbollah] are worst than the israelis. They are supposed to be lebanese citizens, not agents for syria and iran. Let’s be realistic, do you think in this life tha israel will cease to exist as iranians, syrians and h/a are touting.What part of NO you do not understand youssef. Israel is not the doing of Lebanon, however the Lebanese are paying the highest price. If iran and syria are so adamant about liberating palestine why don’t they do that. Cowards, they bark from the other side of the fence and lick their tails once the action starts.
