Terrorism hits again and a new martyr falls in Lebanon

The Lebanese Canadian Coordinating Council (LCCC), strongly denounces the evil assassination of Lebanese MP and cabinet minister Pierre Gemayel who was
cowardly shot by unidentified assassins today in Beirut. The LCCC calls on our Canadian government and people, as well as on all the free world countries, to
actively and firmly rally around the "Cedars Revolution" leadership and support them in both Lebanon and the Diaspora in their peaceful and civilized struggle against terrorism and terrorists.

This is a very sad day for our beloved homeland Lebanon, and for all the faithful and peace-loving Lebanese people all over the world. Meanwhile the criminals, no matter who they are, and no matter who protects and harbors them will not prevail or deter the Lebanese people from their pursuit of independence, sovereignty and freedom.

The evil terrorist powers, spearheaded by the Syrian Baathist regime and its militant militias in Lebanon, are still trying to destabilize the whole Middle East and hinder the emergence of a free, democratic, tolerant, multicultural and sovereign Lebanon. We call on the UN Security Council to create an international
tribunal to investigate this new crime and bring the criminals to justice.

From the LCCC we offer our heartfelt condolences to the Gemayel family, to the Phalanges Party and to the Lebanese people in both Lebanon and the Diaspora.
May Almighty God bless Pierre Gemayel's soul and receive in His Heaven this new Martyr of Lebanon.

For the LCCC
Chairman/Elias Bejjani
Political Adviser/Colonel Charbel Barakat
