Lahoud pays rare visit to Patriarch
The short-lived grab-on of the presidency role, and the departure of yet another Lebanese president in September, concludes in smiles between Maronite Patriarch and P. Emile Lahoud.
The post-lunch meeting held at Bkirki yesterday, gave a breeze of new ideas. Lahoud has put forth a suggestion (whether from his behalf or his political momentum of the opposition), for a “national salvation government” multicolored by all Lebanese sects, and political movements.
Lebanon’s governmental credibility in the world has raised some eye browse due to the lack of the participation of one full Lebanese sect. Unfortunately in Lebanon, religions are the patriotic national currency, so we tend to be forced to be categorized in such terms. The US has its categorization among race, political labels such as Democrats and Republicans, the Leftists and Rightists of France and so on… .
Minister Marwan Hamedeh said Lahouds visit to the Patriarch was useless.
