Franjieh Lashes Out at Bassil, FPM


Marada Movement leader MP Suleiman Franjieh lashed out Sunday at the Free Patriotic Movement and its chief, Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil.

“He who is claiming to be the head of the biggest Christian party in Lebanon is struggling to clinch his (parliamentary) seat,” Franjieh said, in an apparent reference to Bassil.

“We have not sought to eliminate the FPM. To the contrary, they are the ones who tried to eliminate us. Their whole problem with us is that we exist. They believe that you represent a threat to them as long as you exist,” the Marada chief charged.

“The main problem is the presence of a person who is trying to eliminate everyone to become Christians’ only path,” Franjieh added.

He stressed that “restoring (Christian) rights is not about achieving private interests.”

“We must deal with each other ethically and not through the provocative approach that is of no use,” Franjieh said.

Separately, the Marada chief said “a civil state is the solution,” emphasizing that he is a “secular person.”

ورأى ان “صفقة البواخر سرقة العصر بسبب المبالغ الضخمة التي ستدفع في حال تم استئجار هذه البواخر”، وشدد على أن “الرئيس سعد الحريري رجل وفاقي تهمه مصلحة لبنان”، وأوضح أن كل ما تم الاتفاق عليه بعد ازمة استقالة الحريري كان اتفق هو عليه مع الاخير في فترة الاستحقاق الرئاسي.

Lol really a good cat fight but both are corrupt enough to simply accept the exchange of harsh words and move along which is what we will see. Looking back at the last 3 months Jubran has proven to be the Imbecile he truly is and has ultimately left his supporters with a legacy of problems that his mouth has accrued. Fret not orange supporters plenty of you will vote the junior clown back for another term of the circus act.
