Patrick Seale, “Who Killed Rafik Hariri?” The Guardian, February 23, 2005. Unlike others in Lebanon, al-Hariri was not an avowed “enemy” of Syria; although he was forced to resign from his post as prime minister by Syrian military intelligence, he was also thought to be negotiating for Syrian withdrawal as an intermediary between Damascus and the opposition at the time of the assassination. Not all Lebanese have taken an anti-Syrian stance: Michael Aoun, who opposed Syrian intervention in 1989 as Prime Minister, and who is now leader of the Free Patriot Movement, has forged a tactical alliance with Sh’ite parties Hizb’allah and Amal- against Prime Minister Siniora’s government, in effect dividing the Christian Maronites. Failure to forge a national unity government could provoke renewed civil war.
