Why are we turning the beautiful, democratic, Lebanon into Syria or Iran?
Indeed, a member of the so-called “Free Patriotic Party” (what is free about it? And what is patriotic?) is calling for the priest who recited a prayer for the dead for Mr. Slim to apologize. Can you imagine?
He is even trying to turn the story into an insult to Christian rituals. How stupid and low can you go in life, Bambi wonders… without having ever heard of the name of this Lebanese politician in her life before?
Another Muslim (Shia) clergyman was paralyzed by fear to the point of apologizing for having participated in the beautiful, multifaith, funeral prayer of Mr. Lokman Slim.
He claimed he did not know to which house he was heading to say a prayer for the dead and whose body he was praying over. He said he was surprised by the cameras (of journalists).
He repeated his loyalty (to Hezbollah), asking people to stop talking about the story. “God forgive those who are talking about me. I made a mistake”
Isn’t it sad to see a spiritual man apologizing for praying on the dead body of another human being (who happened to be from his own community on top of that)?
Where is Lebanon heading? Are the masters of these people trustworthy when it comes to nuclear deals, Mr. Biden et al.?
