Claudia Rosett’s column in OpinionJournal.com on the assasination of Lebanese newspaperman Gebran Tueni must be read. In Tunei’s long careeer as a real journalist he “had been shot twice, in 1976 and 1989; kidnapped briefly, in 1976; and exiled in 1990 for three years.” More from Rosett:

On the broader front, concerning the wisdom of charting a similar course for Iraq, he had no doubts: “George Bush is doing the right job in the Middle East for us, believe me.” Tueni’s only reservation was his belief that Lebanon, endowed with a rich pre-Syrian legacy of democratic institutions, deserved a chance to lead the way: “We really think if the big issue is about the Middle East, about changing the world, Lebanon is the answer.”
