NNA - Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Beshara Boutros Rahi, criticized during Sunday's Mass service in Diman, all those who refuse neutrality and want to plunge Lebanon into international and regional wars that have nothing to do with the country.
Rahi considered that Lebanon has become dispersed due to loyalties to foreign countries, disputes over quotas and deviations from the constitution, and the charter of the National Reconciliation Document approved by the Taif conference.
Rahi also praised the role of the military institution on the occasion of the Lebanese Army's Diamond Jubilee, in its leadership and officers, in defending the sovereignity of Lebanon and the Lebanese.
"We must rally around the Lebanese army, because it is the protector of the homeland alongside other security institutions, especially in this difficult stage that Lebanon is going through," he said.
Finally, Rahi congratulated the Lebanese people, in general, and Muslims, in particular, on occasion of the holy Eid Al-Adha, hoping that the Eid would bring about further peace and prosperity.
