Bkirki to Host Meeting for Major Christian Leaders

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi is seeking to hold a meeting to gather key Christian leaders to end the presidential deadlock, media reports said on Sunday.

According to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Anbaa Bkirki will seek during the meeting to convince the prominent Christian figures to assume their responsibilities and agree on the election of the “best candidate.”

“The president should be the best representative of his sect and the nation,” sources told the daily.

al-Rahi continuously expressed belief that the political powers should elect a consensual president who is not affiliated to March 8 or 14 alliances and considered not provocative.

Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea, who has received the backing of the March 14 camp and his March 8 rival Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun are both running for the elections.

But Aoun has not officially nominated himself, claiming there should be consensus on him first. His Change and Reform bloc and other MPs from the March 8 alliance have been boycotting parliamentary sessions aimed at electing a president, causing a lack of quorum.

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat has nominated Aley lawmaker Henri Helou but vowed to withdraw his candidacy if the other candidates decided to do so in an attempt to resolve the country's presidential deadlock.

Lebanon has been plunged into a leadership vacuum after Michel Suleiman's presidential term ended on May 25 with rival political blocs still divided over a new leader.

Flame we are all aware of how you aouniye feel about our Christian head in bkirki, you have already invaded it once and desecrated the batrak's position. Heaven forbid al Rahi calls for dialogue only to once again expose aoun as the lying self interested egomaniac he really is. No no we can't have the batrak hold the Christian pretender aoun to account now can we.

Meanwhile on Naharnet another day another dollar as FT begins a fresh thirteen hour shift, the party of god is stretched thin so it's employees have to work long hours even on Sunday. It's less than minimum wage for FT but he can have all the free Ka3ek he wants from the Ka3ek open all you can eat Ka3ek bar.

Why won't ur allies i.e. HA, Bashar, Maliki put an end to ISIS
Could it be because their sectarian doctrine is more important than people with different ethnic ir religious backgrounds
Or the fact that they released them from their prisons, i.e. Abou loukman and his friends were deemed as good reformed citizens so assad freed them in 2011
Or the fact that ur same friends wiuld rather see thousands killed, displaced and mutilated than give up power be it in lebanon, syria or iraq

Its very unfortunate FT that you side with the sale forces you pretended to resist in the 90s and early 2000
Werent they responsible for "tehmish zl masihiyin w hejreton"
Either you were lying then or now, in all cases shame on you

Though you should work on ur grammar and spelling first, its more urgent to note how aoun can
Is it through his allies, or talking to bashar or through the lebanese army thrown into fire everytime m8 decide to clean their dirty laundry

As we can see the irani acis fights isis by:
* opening boders for jihadis to enter iraq (fact: iraqi army has more than 250k personnel, all shiites militias who fought saddam are there and cost till now 41 billion dollars) why did they retreat leaving peshmergas to fight
* please give us examples on how is assad fighting them, is it through the release of their leaders from his prisons, or by buying fuel to bomb civilians. U may use any news source that show scuds and barrel bombs in rekka and deir al zor where isis runs its show
* on hezbos, well havent we killed them all in yabroud and made a majestic song to commemorate the majestic victory

Again, i think its easier for u to learn proper english than politics

Once they're all inside, put them all in an induced coma for a couple of decades or more.
