Widow tells press Syria to blame for killing

This is a fascinating story. Rumours and conspirasy theories abound. At the one extreme, Syrian "inside" gossip is that this was done by the Syrians to please the Americans. At the other extreme, European "inside" gossip is that the man was never killed at all but that the whole thing was a ruse and he has gone into hiding with a new identity.

This - the latest of many conspiracy theories, was sent us by Israel's peace now people:

Haaretz - Rumors abounded in the months prior to Mughniyah`s death regarding a rift between himself and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The rumors were that Mughniyah was attempting to take over command of the militant organization. Mughniyah headed Hezbollah`s operations branch serving in a role similar to chief of staff.
