His Eminence, Sheikh Al-Aql, Sheikh Naeem Hasan received the French Ambassador Anne Grillo and condoled the death of Member of Parliament Jean Obeid


His Eminence, Sheikh Aql of the Druze monotheistic faith (Tawhid), Sheikh Naeem Hasan received at the community house in Beirut, the French ambassador to Lebanon, Anne Grillo, in the presence of both the doctrinal judge Sheikh Gandhi Makarem and the advisor of His Eminence’s office, Sheikh Ghassan al-Halabi. The general situation was discussed in light of worrying indicators and serious challenges at various levels.
His Eminence praised the continuation of the grateful French efforts and endeavors to try to open a rescue path that would get Lebanon out of its crises, in light of the paralysis faced with forming the government, despite the great burdens that require the formation of the government urgently.
For her part, the French ambassador stressed the need for all Lebanese political parties to work towards converging views, and stressed the importance of the role of the spiritual references in stimulating convergence and internal understanding.
On the other hand, Sheikh Hasan expressed his deep regret at the return of assassinations, with what it symbolizes as killing not only the human soul, but also the human concept and the advantage of political work and freedom of opinion. His Eminence called for serious investigations into all the crimes that have occurred since the killing of Colonel Mounir Abu Rujaily, photographer Joseph Bejjani, and recently the activist Luqman Sleem. In parallel, he stressed the need to give the investigations in the port explosion the full judicial attention and commitment to achieving justice in this tragedy on the basis of holding those involved and the officials accountable for what happened.
Condolences on Obaid's death:
To that, Sheikh Al-Aql expressed condolences to all the Lebanese on the death of MP Jean Obeid, and to his honorable family, whom Lebanon has missed one of the most important icons of political life, thought, dialogue, culture and journalism. In this difficult time, the need for wise figures who are able to build bridges and build trust between the Lebanese is becoming more essential.
