Al-Rahi from Tyre: We Want Political Decisions that Ensure Muslim-Christian Coexistence
Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi hoped on Saturday that God would inspire political leaders to take the appropriate decisions that would fall in Lebanon’s favor.
He said from the southern city of Tyre: “We hope they will take political decisions that can ensure the people’s freedom and protect the coexistence between Muslims and Christians in Lebanon and the whole region.”
“We are not idly watching the developments in the Arab world, but we are praying for them and all the people who are seeking to live in dignity and peace,” he added.
He was welcomed in Tyre by Jaafari Muftis Hassan Abdullah and Madrar Habbal, a number of bishops, minister Mohammed Fneish, and MPs Ali Khreis, Abdul Majid Saleh, and Michel Moussa, and a number locals.
Al-Rahi then headed to the southern town of Qana, the second stop of his tour of the South.
