Recently, a longtime aide to Seif, Mohamed Ismail , also confirmed to the New York Times that the Musa Sadr delegation had killed and their bodies thrown into the sea.
During the following week, the essence of some of this information, and why the Sadr delegation was killed became known to Amal officials in Lebanon as well as to others in the region. According to Hannibal Gadaffi's former lawyer Borusha Khalil, they included then prominent Shia leaders Mohammed Baqir al-Sadr, Mohammad Mahdi Shamseddine and others.
An analysis of who ordered the murder of the Imam Sadr delegation to Libya in 1978 is presented in Part III of this report. Why this information, while known by several was not shared with Lebanon's Shia community for the past nearly 38 years and continues to be kept from the public is examined in Part IV of this report as well as in the above noted Manuscript.
This observer wishes to emphasize that the Imam Musa al-Sadr's family, including his lovely son Sadri who has become this observers dear and much valued friend in Lebanon and with whom I have discussed his father's disappearance and compared notes and theories for hours on different occasions, takes exception to parts of the above report.
The Sadr family, like countless others in Lebanon and elsewhere, continues to pray, hope and believe, that the Imam may still be alive in a Libyan or tribal prison. Musa Sadr's family's search for the full and complete truth of this tragedy continues unabated. Bless the Sadr's family courage, patience, hard work and love for their still missing family member, the historic figure, Imam Musa Sadr. Who this observer believes had he not disappeared would have altered the tragic course of events these past nearly four decades in Lebanon and the Middle East, and that had he not left us, this region would likely have avoided the maelstrom that today swirls around us.
And may God bless the Imams colleagues, the much respected cleric, Sheik Mohammad Yaacoob and their gifted Journalist colleague, Abbas Badredinne who this observer believes these colleagues would have remained side by side. One for all and all for one. For the greater good of humanity in this region and beyond.
