Free Patriotic Movement chief and Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil has stressed that the FPM will not allow the “replacement” of Lebanese expats with “refugees.”

“They did not want this electoral law because they were benefiting from our marginalization and from the imbalance in order to boost their share at our expense,” Bassil told Lebanese expats at the Saint Charbel Church in Sydney.

“We will not allow them to replace you with displaced people or refugees,” he added.

In another speech in Melbourne, Bassil said: “We want to return expats to Lebanon and we will not build camps to replace the Lebanese with others.”

“We were not affected when they accused us of racism when we rejection naturalization (of refugees) and we also were not affected when they accused us of sectarianism when we restored the rights of expats,” Bassil added.

“No one can think of solving the problem of another people at the expense of our people,” the FPM chief underlined.

Howdy Madmozeel,

Thank-you. your testimony is a drop of sanity in an ocean of chaos. You should know, however, that the country needs you to stop the current emigration haemorrhage. My favorite cuz sold his house + shop and moved to Morocco. All the cool people are leaving, the country is becoming unlivable even for the most tenacious and patient. I fear that just like him, you might never return from the Thai jungle, surrounded by majestic elephants, and graceful sarus crane.
Because who'd be happy to be surrounded by trash and terrorists?

Are you girls some sort of amazons? We desperately need a Zenobia!

Wishing you the best and hoping the join you in your righteous combat.

sos... it is very true... I live in Canada now... and no one gives a crap about politics... people came here because they were fed up with this... Every one here is fed up with corrupted and failed politicians... and at the same time, everyone is attached to the country... go figure...
I had some hope, considered Baroud as an option, but his recent alliance with Aoun destroyed him to my eyes... poor country of ours...

People in Political Office need to be 'Seen'. Hence, the constitution needs to be amended to include an article that prohibits those under 140 cm from assuming Public Office.
