Christians expressed concern Monday about the sinister threats, but said they would not be intimidated by the specter of ISIS."If we say that Christians are not worrying, we wouldn't be telling the truth," said Father Ibrahim Sarrouj, a Greek Orthodox priest whose rare book collection in Tripoli was burned by unknown individuals last winter. He said that Christians in Tripoli rejected the message scrawled on the wall. Most Tripolitans, however, say that the city's history of coexistence will prevail over threats posed by ISIS.The Syrian crisis, Yarouck said, has created tensions formerly unknown in Tripoli.A young man from Baalbek was arrested earlier this month after creating a Twitter account for a fictional terrorist group, the Free Sunnis of Baalbek Brigade.He had used the account to threaten Lebanese Christians and various political figures.Hajjar said he did not know who spray-painted the ISIS threat on his church.
