The deputy head of the Higher Shiite Islamic Council, Sheikh Abdul Amir Qabalan voiced calls to launch vigorous campaigns to support Lebanon's right to extract its oil, preserve its borders and sovereignty following Israel's threats against the country, the National News Agency reported on Friday.

“Israel's construction of a cement wall constitutes a new aggression against Lebanon adding to the series of repeated Zionist violations of Lebanon's sovereignty. Thereforeو the Lebanese at all levels are required to confront this arrogance and adhere to the golden formula (Army, People, Resistance) that protected Lebanon and liberated its land,” said Qabalan.

He said the Lebanese must “launch a campaign” to support Lebanon's right to extract its oil and preserve its borders and sovereignty by “mobilizing Lebanon's international and regional relations to serve the interests of their homeland.”

Qabalan also hailed the overall agreement between Lebanon's officials and their will to overcome difficulties in reference to a political spat between Foreign Minister Jebran and Speaker Nabih Berri.

He said “national solidarity” between Lebanese politicians is necessary to be able to confront Israel's threats and preserve the country.

The carpet maker is meddling with things that don't concern him.
Him, Daryan and Rai should stay out of it as religious leaders. They should focus instead on preparing Ramadan, Lent and Easter for now.

Pitty the nation where a religious leader dives into politics and affairs of state to show how power and money go hand in hand. As they old arabic adage goes live long enough and you will see a lot of things in life. What next Al Rahi will be advertising Aoun Supermarket products?

I call for a campaign to elect the head of the Supreme Islamic Shia Council a post that's been vacant since 2001 following the death of Sheikh Mohammad Mahdi Shamseddine. It's a simple task that Hezballah and Amal have been blocking since 2001 because Berri and the Hezballah Majlis cannot agree on the same one. Also they are afraid that if the election takes place the council would elect an independent headstrong one like Shamseddine.
