Qabalan during Daryan’s ordination: Let us all go to Arsal to save our soldiers from terrorism

SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Vice Head of the Higher Islamic Shiite Council, Sheikh Abdul Amir Qabalan, on Tuesday called upon the Lebanese to go to Arsal and save the military hostages from terrorism, emphasizing on the necessity of the national unity and not the Sunni-Shia one.

Qabalan, who participated today in the ordination ceremony of newly elected Mufti Sheikh Abdullatif Daryan, did not fail to thank outgoing Mufti Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani “for what he has given and for his cooperation with everybody.”

Outlining the country he seeks, the cleric called for establishing a civil state in Lebanon that gives everybody their rights and where weapons are merely detained by the state and the army.
