Awesome: Hezbullah's Chief Financial Officer defects to Israel with $5 million in Iranian moneyethnic and religious fault lines. Those fault lines are Sunni v. Shia and Wahhabi v. Salafi. Here's more proof.
The Chief Financial Officer of Hezbullah, Hussein Fahs, has defected to Israel with $5 million of Iranian-supplied money. And if Daniel Greenfield is correct - that Fahs fled Lebanon out of fear of a victory in Syria by the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood, making him feel safer in Israel - it proves once again that the fault lines in the Middle East have nothing to do with the 'Palestinians.'
Hussein Fahs, Hezbollah’s CFO and head of the organization’s communications network, has apparently fled to Israel along with 5 million dollars in Iranian money.
According to official Hezbollah sources, Fahs took with him maps, classified documents and a large sum of money. According to the report, seven women and one man are charged in absentia with collaborating with Israel, entering Israel illegally and obtaining Israeli citizenship.Why would Fahs flee to Israel?
One possibility is that the story was made up to discredit him within Hezbollah. But the second possibility is that there are few other options. As a Shiite, there are few places that Fahs can go that are outside the Shiite or Sunni axis. Israel is religiously neutral in the Muslim religious civil war and it has a definite interest in gaining intelligence on Hezbollah.Read the whole thing.
By the way, Yori Yanover writes in the original article that Fahs also took maps and classified documents with him, but he does not elaborate. Hmmm.
