Unholy Silencing of the Future: SSNP Flags, Hizbullah's Hand

While the flags hoisted on the attacked, looted and closed Future TV are the flags of the quasi- fascist Syrian Social National Party, those who shut down Future TV are the Hizbullah as the quote below from a Lebanese reporter shows:

“On Friday morning, Future TV, a pro-government private channel owned by family of Sunni leader Saad Hariri family, was prevented from broadcasting by Hezbollah, the Shiite militia. After warning the employees to evacuate in a well-calculated operation, men entered the station and cut key cables to prevent the channel from broadcasting.”

The pro- Hizbullah editor of Al Safeer, Talal Salman, wrote against this closure:

"We must raise our voices to protest and condemn the unjustified and unacceptable attacks on some of the media and cultural institutions in Beirut and specifically our colleague the Future newspaper and Future television," the editor in chief of Assafir newspaper, Talal Salman, wrote in a fiery editorial.
