BEIRUT: Hezbollah MP Nawwar Sahili submitted petitions to French ambassador to Lebanon Patrice Paoli and the German charges d’affaires in Beirut Thursday calling on their governments to protect religious symbols and ban insults against them. Sahili met with Paoli at the French Embassy in Beirut and asked him to refer the petition to French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and the French parliament. He also asked German Charge d’Affaires Michael Birhof in Beirut to refer the petition to Chancellor Angela Merkel and the German parliament. “The Zionist project is the only side benefiting from this deterioration in relations between our religions, especially the relations between Islam and Christianity,” the Hezbollah MP said. Waves of violent demonstrations ripped through the Arab world last month in response to a short-movie produced in the U.S. insulting Prophet Mohammad.
