Franjieh: Al-Rahi’s Statements Reflect Christians’ Concerns

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Marada Movement leader MP Suleiman Franjieh stated on Tuesday that Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi’s recent statements reflect the concerns of the Christian community given the developments in region.

He said in a statement: “He has based his positions on Christian teaches that have defined the Christians’ role in the region.”

“The patriarch’s fears are not based on conjectures, but facts, such as the developments in Iraq,” noted the MP.

“It is well-known that fundamentalist regimes place Christians before the choice of immigration or being at the mercy of Muslims and we oppose both,” he stressed.

“We would like to point out that those who criticized the patriarch’s positions are content with being governed by Muslims,” said Franjieh.

Al-Rahi had voiced concerns during his trip to France last week that the arrival of fundamentalist regimes in the region would jeopardize Christians in the area.

He had also expressed concern over Sunni and Shiite tensions that could negatively affect Christians.

I thought u liked beeing governed by muslims since Hezbollah has a leash for you and other dogs that bark but do not bite, you are all part of the same plan , cowards working for Israel secretly like the so- called resistance that has hidden so many spies , even admitted it and we do not have any feedback since, also engaging in direct negotiations for prisoners with Israel , how can u do that without having ties from within already? you are all delusionnal that think that this piece of crap militia is a resistance, it is only here to govern Lebanon and be a card for Iran in case the West wants to bomb it, exept that, Hezbollah's will is not theirs and they are commanded from distance like a kids toy car, and we saw that on Naqba day, the palestinians got killed in demonstrations in the South by Israelis and they did nothing but only condemn.

Hezbolllah are bunch of hypocrites working for Israel, Iran and Syria, next time your disgusting no good for nothing foreign MILITIA wants to play a little act with the zionists and block our economic growth as well as destroy our infrastructures, you can tell your followers to stay in the south rather than heading to christians , sunni, or druze areas when bombed, i agree Lebanon is for alll, but not when YOU dont let us go to your neighboorhoods, next time go to North Israel, im sure they will welcome you like you welcomed them when they entered Lebanon throwing flowers at you, i really regret to say that the modest , noble chiite sect has been transformed by Hezbollah into criminals, gangsters and thieves, anyway, be aware that this time, you will not be able to hide in our regions no more, you will be stopped and dealt with like fugitives, you can only blame your big fat rat zionist-iranian-syrian agent hiding somewhere in Haifa probably in the compagny of other low life Sharon.

Stop spreading rumors kiddo.
Christians and Moslems have lived side by side peacefully in Syria for over a millenium.

Of course there are concerns, nobody said the contrary, but do concerns prevail over the slaughtering of peaceful demonstrators, children, elderly people, over the jailing of tens of thousands, over the depravation of freedom, over free will...

Please do not mix Syria with Iraq. The problem is very different, the context is different, the timing is different, and the religious equation radicaly different!

Who used to shoot with the air pistol at your dad's visitors in his palace in Ehden (those who disagreed with him). Who used to rap the women of Chekka and Batroun? if your house is in glass I do not think you want to throw stones at others. Rouh inseter ya walad.
