The Maronite Patriarch of Lebanon and his war on Syrian refugees

During a mass last month, the head of Lebanon’s Maronite Christian church, Patriarch Beshara al-Rai, urged politicians to work on returning Syrians to their own country.  The patriarch accused refugees of “snatching (the Lebanese people‘s) daily bread from their mouths, throwing them into a state of poverty and deprivation.” (thanks Basim)
