W460

Interior Minister Mohammed Fahmi on Tuesday warned anti-government protesters against insulting political leaders, the blocking of roads and what he described as “provocation.”

“Insults against the President and the Parliament Speaker are unacceptable,” Fahmi said, commenting on the latest protests outside the Baabda palace and the Ain el-Tineh palace.

“I'm with peaceful demonstrations, but the blocking of roads is prohibited,” the minister added.

“Let them be peaceful during protests and I'll be with them, but provocation is prohibited,” Fahmi went on to say.

Commenting on the attacks on protesters' cars in Ain el-Tineh at the hands of members of Parliament Police, the minister said: “These members don't belong to the Interior Ministry and I have no authority over them.”

These members don't belong to the Interior Ministry and have no authority over them.” You mean they are Amal or Kizb members and therefore are above the law?

“Insults against the President and the Parliament Speaker are unacceptable,” Fahmi said

Why? Are they prophets or saints?
