RE: “Update on Lebanon”; Subcommittee Hearing on March 24, 2009

Dear Congressman Ackerman:

Thank you for your reassuring comments regarding Lebanon’s sovereignty made at yesterday’s Subcommittee Hearing on Lebanon. Your statement that “engagement with Syria will not be paid for in Lebanese coin” sends a strong message to patriotic Lebanese of the Cedars Revolution-who wish to live in peace and reject violence and extremism- that America is on their side.

Regardless of which party is in control in Washington, Lebanon’s enemies now know that they will not be appeased and that Lebanon will not be a chip to be bargained away. Likewise, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon when it renders its verdicts will be a dagger to the heart of those who promote murder and mayhem. When the Lebanese and others in the region see the arms of justice moving inexorably to their destination, they will rejoice in knowing that the murderers will finally be held accountable. That day will be earth shattering for the dictators and despots, of whom they are legion and their days will be numbered.

Congressman Ackerman, you are a true friend of the Cedars Revolution and the people of Lebanon. More than that-you are a leader and a fighter for justice. Thank you for your unyielding support.


John Hajjar, National Director
