6 degrees of Myopia

1. Hezbollah is allied with the Free Patriotic Movement

2. FPM counts Gebran Bassil as a senior member

3. Gebran Bassil is the minister of telecom in Lebanon's schizophrenic national unity government

4. The ministry of telecom awarded a mobile network operation contract to Egyptian Orascom

5. Orascom is majority owned by Naguib Sawiris

6. Naguib Sawiris, through Orascom, is the biggest investor from an Arab country in Israel

P.S. This deal was signed by the "pro-resistance axis" during the Israeli massacres in Gaza.


UPDATE (Feb 15th Orascom Statement: ORASCOM goes with the "we did, but no longer do" defense. While Sawiris opts for "I had a Palestinian friend once" argument.)

Excellent - This shows that Business is Business and that it should not get involved in politics, But maybe the Lebanese people are not mature enough to understand this....

Hello!

Sorry to bother, but could you please add our new blog,"BabaGannouj et La Zaytouni" which focuses on Lebanon and the Middle East, to your list? (That is, if you like it of course :) )

What is the point of the post???

To somehow show that Hezbollah which has more than anyone else in the middle-east fought for freedom for it's people is somehow funding Israel?

It's beyond ridiculous.

You called you article 6 degrees of myopia presumably based on the idea called Six degrees of separation (also referred to as the "Human Web"). If you had any idea what the idea actually was you would never have posted this. :D

it refers to the idea that, if a person is one step away from each person they know and two steps away from each person who is known by one of the people they know, then everyone is no more than six "steps" away from each person on Earth.

So if we apply this ANYONE and EVERYONE can be linked to funding Israel.

Your article is ridiculous and idiotic.
