Bishara: 'I am being blamed for Lebanon failure'

Following the partial lift of a month-old gag order on the police investigation regarding MK Azmi Bishara. Bishara, who resigned earlier in the week, accused Israel of using him to cover up for failures during last summer's war against Hizbullah. Speaking in Doha Qatar, Bishara dismissed the allegations against him as a political witch hunt. "The aim is to convene a court to turn [me] into a petty criminal facing security violations," he said.
