Philip Rizk's mother and sister wrote this about last night's raid:
"At 1:30am when we had just gone to bed the doorbell rang. 5 plain clothed men and two in full riot gear and machine guns stood outside our door. They wanted to enter to search the house. We found out that they were looking for evidence against Philip. Two men entered and began searching through the papers of our home office..."
The police came back a second time, and didn't leave until 5 am.
This kind of behaviour can have absolutely no purpose whatsover other than terrorizing the family. It's disgusting. But at the same time, of course, for the agents involved it's routine, since rule by fear is the only method known to this US- and EU-funded government of gangsters.
