Hariri: Only Rafik Hariri Project Will Prevail despite Arms, Terror, Assassinationsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Al-Mustaqbal movement leader MP Saad Hariri stressed Thursday that the political and economic project of his slain father, former premier Rafik Hariri, will eventually “prevail” despite attempts to stop it through “arms, terrorism and assassination attempts.”
“Ten years ago, Lebanon was being built and someone tried to stop the process of Lebanon's reconstruction … and after 10 years, we're witnessing recurrent attempts to stop this project, but we shall continue,” Hariri told LBCI TV, two days before the tenth anniversary of his father's assassination in a massive bombing in Beirut.
Emphasizing that Rafik Hariri's project is a project of “construction, development and economy,” al-Mustaqbal's chief noted that those who murdered his father “assassinated the body, not the project.”
“Sooner or later, only Rafik Hariri's project will prevail in this country,” Hariri underlined, adding that “only the Lebanese can continue it.”
“The Lebanese people are stubborn and they will continue this journey, no matter how much they try through arms, terrorism or assassination attempts,” Hariri added, describing his father's project as a “force of moderation.”
Addressing the young men and women who “believe in Rafik Hariri's project,” Hariri underscored that “it is prohibited to lose hope.”
“Rafik Hariri never lost hope throughout his life and he was building as people were destroying and killing each other,” the ex-PM added.
Hariri is expected to deliver a long speech during a rally commemorating his slain father on Saturday.
