Margolis_2Until now, accusations that Israel assassinated Rafik Hariri only came from Syrian officials. Now, the first example of the Western media echoing the insinuation comes from Toronto Sun columnist Eric Margolis (pictured).

Israeli PM Ariel Sharon’s rightist Likud Party may be renewing previous efforts to bring Lebanon back into Israel’s sphere of influence. For the past quarter century, Syria and Israel have waged a dirty war of bombings and assassinations to dominate Lebanon and Jordan.

Just last week, Margolis suggested that Israel poisoned Yasser Arafat too.
