Al-Rahi says easier dealing with Israel than fellow government

Maronite Patriarch Beshara al- Rahi on Sunday voiced pain and anger over the latest "ugly" exchanges between PM-designate Najib Mikati and the Free Patriotic Movement.

"It is shameful that authorities are exerting efforts to agree with Israel over the sea border while refraining from forming a government," al-Rahi lamented in his Sunday Mass sermon.

"Has it become easier for them to agree with Israel rather than to agree on a government among the Lebanese? The people's dignity rejects all of that," al-Rahi added.

"Let the officials know that the peoole reject to put their fate in the hands of a caretaker cabinet and they also reject the obstruction of the election of a new president," the patriarch went on to say, warning that the people "will not remain silent over what they're doing."
