Maronite Patriarch: Refugee Crisis Is the 'Biggest Danger' Threatening Lebanon

Maronite Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi sounded the alarm over the growing Syrian refugee influx, deeming it as the "biggest danger" that is threatening Lebanon's entity, culture, economy and security. "Nonetheless, I honestly don't have any inner fear because I believe that the Virgin Mary and Lebanese saints will not abandon our country," he said in an interview published in Al-Joumhouria newspaper.
