The Future Movement and Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya, the Lebanese branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, voiced support Thursday for the Lebanese Army and security forces in their battle against terrorism, while rejecting any form of religious extremism.In discussing the recent political developments and security incidents – including the deadly clashes between the Lebanese Army and Islamist militants in the northeastern town of Arsal earlier this month – as well as street protests by civil servants and school teachers to press their demands for salary increases, the two sides underlined the need for a swift election of a new president.Assir, an anti-Hezbollah preacher, whose followers clashed with the Lebanese Army in June 2013, is still on the run. The clashes resulted in the death of 18 soldiers and around 40 of Assir's followers.
