Its been years in the coming but the probe into the assasination Lebanons Rafik al Hariri is believed to be close to calling for the arrest of several Hezzbollah members for the murder.

To date Hezzbollah has tried to deflect blame by claiming, before the UN panel released its findings, that rouge Hezzbollah members killed Al-Hariri. Nasrallah described them as "undisciplined members". Now Nasrallah has gone further in trying to deflect blame. Isreal (suprise suprise) is supposed to be responsible according to the Hezzbollah head:

Nasrallah and Hezzbollah have botched this one. Denied all culpability in the killing of their chief Lebanese political rival, thrown their own members to the wolves, and now by extension labelled their own "undisciplined members" as Israeli spies. Nasrallah has gotten (with threats obviously) current PM Hariri to accept that if Hezzbollah members are found responsbile, then their actions are not associated to Hezzbollah(?). This because as Nasrallah put it, the investigation has "pushed Lebanon into a sensitive phase", a phase one assumes where Hezzbollah are prepared to go further with violence if held accountable for their murder of the Lebanese PM.
Nasrallah has accused Israel of trying to drive a wedge between Hezzbollah and the Beirut government. A wedge of some sort between the Lebanese government and the gun being held to their head by Hezzbollah would probably be most welcome, but there is no Israel to blame now. Not this time. Unless Nasrallah has serious proof which he claims to have, but has till now not bothered shwoing. Globally Hezzbollah with it is sponsors are to stand accused of political murder at a time when the factions in Lebanon were at peace.
The recent conferance in Lebanon saw Syria and Saudi Arabia attend. Two backers of different factions in Lebanon arrive for a conferance with the Lebanese government. Hezzbollah was not invited, neither was Iran. Syria it seems is at a crossroads and have already chosen its path. Interesting times ahead, just hope they are peaceful.
