Tueni was killed for his words

Readers not familiar with Lebanese events or the murder of Gabril Tueni may want to read this editorial he wrote critical of Lebanese President Lahoud (viewed by many as a puppet of Syria's Assad) to understand why he was targeted for assassination.

Doesn't anyone dare explain to Lahoud that resolution 1559 is the result of the oppression of the Lebanese people, the mistakes of the Lebanese authorities and Syria's bad performance in Lebanon?

What was President Lahoud thinking when he said that resolution 1559 would contribute to the resettlement of the Palestinians in Lebanon? As long as all the Lebanese people, from all groups and confessions, and the authorities are against the resettlement of Palestinians, this issue would not pose a real threat. Moreover, who dares sign the resettlement decree?
