Al-Rahi: Embassies Facilitating Emigration to Empty Lebanon of Its People, Christians

W460

Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi on Friday warned that “some embassies” are facilitating emigration for Lebanese citizens in order to “empty Lebanon of its people and Christians.”

Addressing the “young men and women of the civil protest movement,” al-Rahi warned them that “some embassies, which I will not name now, are facilitating the issue of emigration, as if it is a second war to empty Lebanon of its people and Christians.”

“Young men and women, you have to remain resilient throughout this plight, the same as our grandfathers and ancestors did during the crises that Lebanon faced throughout history, so that we preserve Lebanon and restore it,” al-Rahi added.

“You are rightful when you dream of a country that offers you security, peace and the simplest rights, but you have to show patience and endurance until this black cloud passes,” the patriarch went on to say.

Al-Rahi also said that he is praying for “all the young men and women of the civil protest movement,” especially those who “are struggling night and day, as happened two days ago, when the youths organized a sit-in after three citizens committed suicide over the financial situations.”

“These youths have one demand: a government that can achieve Lebanon’s rise and recover its role and message,” the patriarch went on to say.

Son Eminence ne comprends toujours. Qu'il écoute la chanson de Madonna qui dit " Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep..."

Et en plus il est sectaire . Tout le monde fuit le pays ou essaie de le fuir mais le complotiste qu'il est voit des ambassades se focaliser sur les chrétiens. Ce mec a un problème ou alors il est tout simplement un bonimenteur.

His High-Less would rather his people starve and live under oppression. He did forget that his boss aoun said to the people of Lebanon " If you don't like it, you can immigrate". Another useless so-called 'spiritual' leader who works for the corrupt ruling class.

What utter nonsense you write. If Israel was interested in destroying Christians it would first do it at home, but guess what, the number of Christian citizens of Israel is increasing all the time. So please try and explain why Israel would want to destroy the Christians of Lebanon?

What utter nonsense you write. If Israel really wanted to destroy Christian populations it would start with those who are living in and are citizens of Israel. So why would Israel want to destroy Lebanons' Christians?
Remember, the only country in the whole Middle East where the number of Christians is regularly increasing is....Israel.
