Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi dubbed Lebanese politicians on Sunday as “disabled” people for failing to agree on a new government and an electoral draft-law.


“Aren’t the real disabled those who obstruct the formation of the cabinet over the impairment of their interests?” al-Rahi asked in his sermon during a mass he celebrated in Bkirki. He criticized them for failing to agree on a new electoral draft-law over their “cheap” personal interests. Al-Rahi also accused the politicians of dragging the presidential post to a vacuum over the inability to take a “responsible patriotic decision.” [Link]
