'We Depend on God and Fate', Says Jumblat Responding to 'Death Threats'
Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat has responded to assassination threats that media reports attributed to the Islamic State group by stressing that he “depends on God and fate.”
“Whatever the threat might be, be it from local or external parties, we depend on God and fate at this age,” Jumblat said.
“In these dark days, during which the trends of ignorance and backwardness are aggravating, we are in dire need for deepening our knowledge, which alone can confront bigotry and intolerance,” he added.
“Only through learning we can fight ignorance and only through knowledge we can fight the feeble minds and the depraved souls,” Jumblat went on to say.
