Maronite Archbishop: True Leader is One who Resists Naturalization of Refugees
Maronite Archbishop of Beirut Boulos Abdul Sater on Sunday noted that “a true leader is one who resists the naturalization (of refugees) and one who chooses to leave rather than disappoint or harm his people.”
“A true leader is not one who believes that the country is a property for him and for his children after him or one who monopolizes power and aggrieves those who placed their confidence in him,” Abdul Sater said in a sermon marking Saint Maron’s Day.
The mass celebrating the occasion was attended by President Michel Aoun, Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Hassan Diab.
“Don’t the tens of thousands of Lebanese who elected you deserve that you fix the flaws in the political, economic and financial performance and that you work night and day with the true revolutionaries on securing what provides decent living to every citizen? Otherwise, resignation would be more honorable,” the archbishop added, addressing Lebanon’s politicians.
“What are you waiting for?” he asked.
