Beirut - Arab Today

In spite of our complete humanitarian solidarity with refugees, Lebanon can no longer bear the consequences of the displaced," Rahi said during a pastoral visit to Los Angeles in the United States.


Rahi stressed the right of all refugees to return to their homeland, saying, "All refugees, whether Muslims or Christians, have the right to return to their homeland in order to preserve their culture, civilization and history."


The Prelate explained that there was no problem with the displaced themselves and with supporting their humanitarian and national case.


"We have no problem with them, we support their humanitarian and national cause; however, their continued presence in Lebanon is a burden and poses political, demographic, economic and security risks," Rahi went on.


Responding to a question, he underscored that "if the international community has the intention to settle refugees in Lebanon, then that is rejected by all the Lebanese people and by the Lebanese Constitution," adding that "this is a serious danger that threatens stability in the region."


The Patriarch urged the international community to realize the importance of Lebanon and work on stopping the war, eradicating terrorism and returning refugees to their homeland and helping them rebuild their country.


Commenting on the Christian presence in the Levant, Rahi pointed out that the "Christians were at the basis of civilization in the Levant, and have helped to create an Islamic moderation, strengthening their role through coexistence."


"If Christians lose their influence and role in the Middle East, Muslims will lose moderation," he stressed
