May 15, 2014

The grand mufti of Lebanon has met with the patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church, Cardinal Béchara Boutros Raï, and presented him with a proposal for a Muslim-Christian pact “for preserving coexistence in Lebanon,” according to the Beirut-based Daily Star.

Mohammed Rashid Qabbani said that he agreed with the prelate that “some are working on destroying ties between Muslims and Christians in the Middle East.”

    Here is another Church leader walking into the bears den with eyes closed. Wonder if he has read the Koran lately? This is a pact of convenience and will be broken at the earliest possible convenience.

    Cardinal Boutros Raï needs to read very carefully the fine print in this "pact".
