العميل الإسرائيلي السيد عقل هاشم
This photo dated from the late 1980's shows Syed Akl Hashem (Arabic: السيد عقل هاشم), second from right, the late second-in-command of the South Lebanon Army (SLA), Israel's proxy defunct terrorist militia, speaking with then Israeli Defense Minister Itzhak Rabin, left, during the latter's visit to Israel's so-called Security Zone in south Lebanon. Syed Akl Hashem was killed on January 30, 2000, by Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based international terrorist organization.
يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَيُخْرِجُ الْمَيِّتَ مِنَ الْحَيِّ (الروم: 19)
Syed Akl Hashem is a member of the Banu Hashim clan of Mecca and a descendant of Prophet Muhammad, PBUH&HF, through his daughter Fatima, PBUH, and her husband al-Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb, PBUH. The forefathers of Akl Hashem were Shia-Muslims; however, one of his recent predecessors claimed that he is Christian to avoid compulsory service in the Ottoman army. The Sunni-Muslim Turks had made it obligatory upon all able-bodied Muslims living under the rule of the Ottoman Caliph to serve in the armed forces of the empire. Non-Muslims were excluded from Ottoman military conscription.
Having taken refuge in Christianity, the elder Hashem renounced Shia-Islam and became a member in the Greek Orthodox Church. As the Hashemites adore positions of power, Akl Hashem was true to the path of his family when he became the field commander of the SLA and its number two man!
