Syria's foreign minister Wallid Mouallem held a news conference yesterday displaying a video showing "Islamist terrorists" in Syria, in an attempt to refute the reports about peaceful demonstrations. The video turned out to be filmed in Tripoli in 2008 when clashes erupted between Sunni and Allawite militants in the Northern city. Hariri's Future TV ran a report on the issue here. Notice the people's faces in Mouallem's video, and then the same individuals interviewed by Future TV in Tripoli. Here is a short article on the scandal from Hariri's NOW Lebanon:

"Dozens of people in Tripoli's Bab al-Tabbaneh on Monday protested against Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mouallem’s allegations that area residents have taken up arms in Syria, the National News Agency reported".

One note on this scandal: The militants in Tripoli are still scary and a worrying sign of what awaits Lebanon.
