These stories below are older but it shows how pedophiles are hiding in Lebanon. It’s also interesting to note that it seems like Lebanon is hiding these fugitives. I couldn’t find many stories about PEDO activity in the country but here are the two most interesting. Once again seems like rich business men and the Vatican are involved.

Man Involved in Child Trafficking Ring Wanted In Mexico is Hiding in Lebanon

A Lebanese-Mexican businessman wanted in Mexico has been located in Lebanon, revealed the Attorney General’s Office in Mexico, according to Mexican newspaper El Universal.

The man, Kamel Nacif Borge, is of Lebanese descent and is known as one of the richest men in Mexico and a world-famous gambler. He owns a textile empire in Mexico and is referred to as “Denim King.”

According to the newspaper, Borge is also wanted for “his involvement in the kidnapping and torture of journalist Lydia Cacho after she exposed a pedophilia and child-trafficking network in her book The Demons of Eden (Los demonios del Edén).” 

The network involved child pornography and child sexual abuse. It was led by Lebanese-born businessman Jean Succar Kuri, who was arrested and sentenced to 112 years in prison in 2011. 

Nacif and two others, former Puebla governor Mario Marín Torres and former Puebla police chief Hugo Adolfo Karam, are wanted by Interpol.

“[The] three of them were part of a network of masterminds behind my torture. I was tortured for giving voice to hundreds of girls and boys who were sexually exploited by a human trafficking network, where Governors, Senators, and businessmen participated to sexually exploit minors,” journalist Cacho said.

Lydia Cacho claimed in her book that the former governor Torres was part of the child pornography network. She accused him of “protecting businessmen linked to the case,” reported El Universal.

A leaked phone call between former governor Torres and Nacif revealed a conversation between them discussing Cacho’s detention and torture, including their plan to “hire someone to rape her in jail.”

With these crimes exposed, Nacif has reportedly sought Lebanon to hide from the prosecution of the Mexican Justice. Not for long though. The Foreign Affairs Ministry of Mexico has started the extradition process for Nacif’s arrest. 

It will not be easy since Lebanon does not extradite its citizens. However, considering the magnitude of his crimes against innocent kids, Nacif shouldn’t be allowed to roam free and protected by any judicial system. He could and should be at least judged under the Lebanese legal system.

Lebanese priest convicted of pedophilia says Vatican officials bribed

BEIRUT: Mansour Labaki, a Lebanese priest convicted of pedophilia in 2012 by the Vatican, broke his silence on the affair Sunday, denying any crime and accusing the top Catholic authority of corruption.

“People in the church were bribed and I have proof of this,” he told Voice of Lebanon radio station, insisting that the charges against him were fabricated.

Labaki said that he was expecting a fair trial when he arrive to Rome, but was surprised to learn that he was not allowed to respond to the accusations made against him.

He said he wished the court would listen to the testimonies of people who have worked with him and several students that he “raised” who, according to him, would attest his innocence.

The complaints were first filed in 2011 by the priest’s estranged niece and three French women. The report went directly from French church authorities to the Vatican, bypassing civil criminal courts.

Labaki, 74, was convicted by the Vatican in April 2012 of sexually abusing at least three children, as well as soliciting sex. He was sentenced to a “life of prayer,” which he has been carrying out in a monastery in Lebanon.

Labaki, a Maronite priest, author and composer, is known in both Lebanon and France for his charity work, particularly with orphans. He founded two orphanages in Lebanon and one in France, and has won 15 international book prizes.

The complaints were first filed in 2011 by the priest’s estranged niece and three French women. The report went directly from French church authorities to the Vatican, bypassing civil criminal courts.

His sentence was carried out under Vatican law, with other states typically avoiding involvement in Vatican legal matters, Marco Ventura, professor of Canon law and religion at the University of Leuven in Belgium, told the Daily Star last year.

George Nader — Lebanese-American Businessman – Convicted PEDO

How did George Nader — Lebanese-American businessman, globe-trotting “fixer,” convicted child molester — get caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation? The answer, it seems, can be found in the shadows, where Nader has long operated.

His long history included intrepid back-channel mediation between Israel and Arab countries — and a 15-year-old pedophilia conviction in Europe that has not been previously reported.

Nader was caught in Mueller’s web a few days before the anniversary of Trump’s inauguration. He was transiting through Dulles International Airport outside Washington, on his way to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, when his plans changed — abruptly and involuntarily.

Mueller’s investigators stopped him, people familiar with the case said. His electronics were seized and he was then allowed to go see his lawyer. Nader later agreed to cooperate with Mueller’s investigation, said the people with knowledge of the case as it pertains to Nader. They weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the case and demanded anonymity.

George Nader was convicted by Prague’s Municipal Court of 10 cases of sexually abusing minors and sentenced to a one-year prison term in May 2003, court spokeswoman Marketa Puci told The Associated Press on Wednesday. She said the crimes occurred between 1999 and 2002. She said Nader served time in a Prague prison, though it isn’t clear how much. He was then ordered expelled.

Puci said Nader was convicted of “moral corruption of minors, sexual abuse and impairing morals,” after abusing underage boys.

In one case, Nader requested oral sex from a 14-year-old boy in a room at the Hilton Hotel in Prague, Puci said. After the boy refused, Nader masturbated in front of him and paid him 2,000 koruna — worth about $100 today, she said.

The verdict cites other examples of Nader providing money, jewelry, cellphones, clothes and accommodation for sexual services. The AP was able to see a copy of the verdict, which gives Nader’s birthdate as May 15, 1959. Nader was separately accused in Washington, D.C., of child pornography infractions in 1985, but those charges were later dropped. A criminal docket sheet obtained by the AP shows the same birthdate for Nader.

The Underground:

The below video had me curious about the explosion more now; so that’s why I decided to research and see If i could find any evidence of more underground structures in the city. It seems Beirut and Lebanon have history with underground tunnels and bunkers as you will find out below the video. Many think children are being saved; Don’t know for sure. I just know some stinks about this story.

Tunnel crossing between Lebanon and Israel went 22 stories deep

The Israeli army on Monday showed the inside of a sophisticated tunnel passing deep underground from Lebanon into northern Israel, saying it was intended for use by Lebanese Hezbollah militants.

The tunnel was rigged with electrical wiring, fuse boxes and communications equipment. An army spokesman said it began almost a kilometer (mile) away inside Lebanon and reached depths of some 80 meters (265 feet) – about the height of a 22-story building – as it crossed into Israel, near the town of Zarit.

It came to light earlier this year during an army operation in which a number of attack tunnels dug by Iran-backed Shi’ite Hezbollah were discovered and sealed off, the military said.

Jeita Grotto – Cave System in Lebanon

The Jeita Grotto (Arabic: مغارة جعيتا‎) is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 5.6 miles. The caves are situated in the Nahr al-Kalb valley within the locality of Jeita, 11 miles north of the Lebanese capital Beirut. Though inhabited in prehistoric times, the lower cave was not rediscovered until 1836 by Reverend William Thomson; it can only be visited by boat since it channels an underground river that provides fresh drinking water to more than a million Lebanese.

In 1958, Lebanese speleologists discovered the upper galleries 200 ft above the lower cave which have been accommodated with an access tunnel and a series of walkways to enable tourists safe access without disturbing the natural landscape. The upper galleries house the world’s largest known stalactite. The galleries are composed of a series of chambers the largest of which peaks at a height of 39 ft.

Hezbollah Boasts of Lebanon-Israel Tunnel Network

Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed terror group based in Lebanon, boasted last week of its complex network of tunnels along the Israel-Lebanon border.  

According to a report by Lebanese paper As-safir on Friday, these tunnels are well-equipped and ready to launch a plague of rockets against Israel.

Hezbollah’s advanced tunnel system stores hundreds of thousands of rockets to launch at the Jewish state, as Hamas and other Islamic terror groups in Gaza did during the summer 2014 war.

While the report did not assert that the terror group would use its tunnel network to infiltrate northern Israel, where Lebanon sits close to the towns of Kiryat Shemona and Nahariyya.

“The war has not yet arrived, but it could arrive one of these days,” writes As-safir. “Therefore building of new fortifications and tunnels continues around the clock, and instead of tens of thousands of rockets ready for launch there are now hundreds of thousands.”

While unverified, the report also claims that Hezbollah has invested in upgrading the tunnels since the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

“The type of concrete has changed, the ventilation system is different, and the methods for customizing weapons and food have changed.  Electricity is provided to tunnels 24 hours a day with the use of generators set up underground,” the Lebanese newspaper says, claiming the air inside the tunnel matches the fresh outside air.  “There are devices to neutralize humidity in order to prevent the iron from rusting and there are fans and emergency exits.  Those who built the tunnels did not forget any detail.”  

The report also claims that the tunnels are stocked with special food that will be used when war breaks out. It is changed every five months for freshness.

While Israel was able to destroy Lebanon’s vehicle-mounted missile launchers in 2006, Lebanon’s updated underground rocket-launching system supposedly incorporates the possibility of either manual or computer-launched weapons.

Last year, a Hezbollah source also told Arab news magazine Al Watan Al Arabi that, in terms of quality, the tunnels “are on par with the metro tunnels in the major European cities.”

A year-old Al-Monitor article interprets claims by the Arab press that the Hamas terrorist tunnels are “a child’s game” compared to Lebanese tunnels, giving credence to a Hezbollah threat “that in the next confrontation with Israel, its fighters will be able to take over towns and villages in the Galilee in northern Israel.”

Israel to Build Anti-Tunnel Sensor Network Along Lebanon Border

Israel’s military announced on Sunday the start of construction of an underground network of sensors along the Lebanese frontier to detect any cross-border tunnel building.

The project is getting under way a year after the Israeli military said it had destroyed a series of infiltration tunnels dug by the Lebanese Hezbollah group.

“All the drilling is being done on the Israeli side of the blue line,” military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus, referring to the border demarcation with Lebanon, said in a conference call with journalists.

He said the planned Israeli network “was not a wall” but seismic and acoustic sensors buried in the ground.

Berghain of Beirut | How an Underground Bunker in Lebanon Became One of the World’s Best Clubs

4.0.1

“In the mid-1980s, nothing could be heard in Beirut but the sounds of missiles and bullets,” Ali tells me, “But while everyone was completely overwhelmed with the raging war, the young Naji Gebran was busy curating his own music in a small chalet with the number: ‘’B018’’ at the door. This unit turned later into a music refuge for his music lovers’ friends in the midst of their misery.”

So begins the story of B018, one of the most influential clubs, not just in the Middle East, but in the world. Ali Saleh, the current managing partner of the club, is a calm, soft spoken guy, but his face lights up when discussing Beirut, B018 and their intertwined histories.

“At a time when nightclubs were not very common, B018 captured the hearts and minds of generations” Ali continued, “It was a musical revelation; an institution that gave credibility and put Beirut on the international nightlife map. It was also the first club to introduce electronic music, not just to Lebanon, but the region as well.”

B018 started out in the 80s as a series of private parties, but quickly became so popular that it was forced to move into a warehouse location in the industrial area of Sin El Fil in the early 90s. It wasn’t until 1998 that it took on its current position and form, when the pioneering Lebanese architect Bernard Khoury designed and built the underground club in an area called The Quarantaine, or “Karantina”, a desolate neighbourhood that was previously the site of a camp for Kurdish, Palestinian and Armenian refugees.

That was until 1976, when a group of local militia-men massacred hundreds of refugees and burnt the camp to the ground in one of the early actions of the Lebanese Civil War. In the aftermath of the slaughter, the area was left abandoned. So it’s a strange, if not controversial, place to build a nightclub.

“If you look at Beirut on Google maps you will see that for a very small stretch there are no buildings at all and this is The Quarantaine,” Bernard tells me, “The overdevelopment stops here, so what I decided to do is preserve that void. From that stretch of highway B018 is invisible, and its invisibility reaffirms that void in a very dramatic way.”

When downtown Beirut was busy

I found this picture today on the Facebook group قديماً one of many sites now posting pictures of old Beirut.

According to the site, this is an underground pedestrian bridge located at the intersection of Allenby and Wegan streets shot in 1972.

Apparently the pedestrian tunnel was covered up in the post-war reconstruction effort.

And why not? Judging by the trickle of people that walk in downtown Beirut today, it’s hard to imagine the type of foot traffic that would justify a pedestrian bridge.
