“All political indications confirm the presence of a plot against Lebanon involving presidential and constitutional vacuum,” said Maronite Patriarch Beshara Boutros Rahi, in Christmas message from Bkerki this morning.
“The Maronite Patriarchate is determined to continue its struggle and endeavors in Lebanon and among the Arab and international communities in order to accelerate the presidential entitlement,” Patriarch Rahi added, pointing out that the regional conflict hinders these efforts because there are those who want a president for themselves, not for Lebanon, and they want a president for their project, not for the historical Lebanese project.
Rahi considered that so far no Lebanese party has proposed a national or civilized idea better than the Lebanese idea, and that his call for a conference sponsored by the United Nations and friendly countries on Lebanon is to distance Lebanon from any military clash and for the situation to remain fine in this unknown regional stage.
“Our call to this conference comes because we have surrendered to Lebanese politicians,” he concluded.
