BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Metropolitan bishop of the Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch for the Archdiocese of Beirut, Elias ‘Aude, said Lebanon was being ruled by “one person and an armed group” during his sermon on Sunday.

Bishop ‘Aude made the comment during the mass marking the 14th anniversary of Gebran Tueni’s assassination.

“This country is being ruled today by one person we all know, and no one speaks and by a group that is ruling us by arms,” the bishop said.

The ‘person’ the bishop is referencing Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

The country would be ruling by ISIS if that “person” and “that armed group” wouldnt be deployed in lebanon…and surely Bishop would be death.

Since Zarqawi (ISIS founder) was hiding in Iran before being smuggled into Iraq, ISIS wouldn’t exist without Nazirallah’s masters…
Without Hezbullsht presence, Lebanon’s economy would do far better and so the country would have a way more powerful army…
Moreover, ISIS has mainly been kicked out by Lebanese army, not by Hezbullshit…

I think that the ruler is not Nazirallah : he’s far too incompetent to run a country. Aude must be speaking about the high on opium puppetmaster in Tehran…
