Abdul Rahim Mourad (Arabic: عبد الرحيم مراد; from the Beqaa Valley) born on 17 October 1942 is a Lebanese politician, member of Parliament and minister, including Lebanese Minister of Defense and Minister of Education and Higher Learning. He is the founder and president of the Lebanese International University.
Mourad graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration and a licence in law. He worked in trade and industry, before running for Parliamentary elections and being elected to the Lebanese Parliament in the years 1990, 1992 and 1996.
In an interview aired on Al-Alam TV on October 15, 2010 (as translated by MEMRI), Mourad stated that "The so-called 9/11 incidents are a big lie, which was used by the American as a pretext to stage a global offensive, beginning in Afghanistan, continuing in Iraq, and Allah knows where it will go from there." Regarding who was responsible for the attacks, Mourad stated that "I am convinced that the Israeli Mossad, along with the US intelligence, carried out the entire thing. I believe this is what President Ahmadinejad means, but he does not want to put the cart before the horse." He further stated that "If the world is courageous enough to hold a real investigation, it will find that this is the outcome: US intelligence and the Israeli Mossad."
