Christian Orthodox group vows to restore role

BEIRUT: The Orthodox Gathering rejected the marginalization of the Christian Orthodox sect in Lebanon, Tuesday, pledging to work on restoring its role. Former MP Salim Habib, the Gathering’s secretary-general, said that the group’s action plan was to restore “what was stolen and what we allowed to be stolen from us.” Speaking during an expanded meeting for the gathering at a hotel in Beirut, Habib said that the group would work on having a say again in the “fate of the country and presenting the Orthodox role that is supportive for the development of the Lebanese society.” Meanwhile, Former Minister Elie Firzli said that members of the Orthodox sect in Lebanon felt “oppressed and alienated.”
