The former president and Kataeb leader, Amin Gemayel, said Thursday that extremist takfiri groups are as harmful to Muslims as they are to Christians, and called for all sects to close ranks to combat the trend sweeping the Middle East.Gemayel said the bid to combat terrorism was a common responsibility of all parties and factions, regardless of religious leanings, and that the initiative of the heads of Eastern churches -- led by Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai -- to curb takfiri groups should be endorsed by all factions in Lebanon and the Middle East.
