Hotels syndicate says tourism won't be affected by Saudi's kidnap


The brief kidnap of a Saudi man in Lebanon will not affect the “promising” summer tourism season, the head of the Syndicate of Hotel Owners in Lebanon, Pierre Achkar, said.

Congratulating security forces on the “swift liberation” of the Saudi citizen, Achkar said such prompt action “sends a clear and firm message to anyone who dares to temper with security.”

“It also reassures the Lebanese and all Arab brothers and foreign visitors,” he added.

And calling on everyone to “remain calm and refrain from circulating pessimistic rumors about the summer season,” Achkar reassured that “the summer tourism season is promising and will not be affected by such a security incident.”

God bless our Shia resistance for providing a safe and "fun" environment to all tourists who plan to visit our beloved country this summer. By assuring tourists they would be swiftly released in the event they are subjected to kidnapping, our Shia resistance is spreading a comforting and relaxing atmosphere among visitors. In fact, tourists from across the globe are lining up at travel offices to purchase airline tickets and packages to visit our amazing country.

We are forever indebted to our Shia resistance.

Is it possible that Pierre Achkar possesses some sort of mystical crystal ball, enabling him to foresee events with uncanny accuracy? If I were a citizen of Kuwait, Qatar, or the UAE, I would exercise caution and avoid traveling to Lebanon, for the fear of being subjected to the unfortunate occurrence of abduction.
