Shame on Former Lebanese PM, Najib Mikati
Elias Bejjani/April 26/15

While the Lebanese city of Tripoli is living the worst poverty, agony, unemployment, extremely difficult social and security hardships and circumstances, Its son, MP, and resident, the billionaire, former Lebanese PM, Mr. Najib Mikati is spending millions and millions of dollars on a lavish marriage ceremony for his son in Morocco.

A ceremony in its extravagant showiness, luxury and mighty makes the “One Thousand and One Nights” Arabic historic tale a mere laughable joke.

We strongly believe that the money spent on this Royal and Hollywood style marriage ceremony could have fed hundred of Tripoli poor- hungry residents, and at the same time paid tuition fees for thousands of the city’s impoverished students.

Mikati’s conduct shows how much he is detached and alienated from the sufferings of his own people.

In conclusion, yes, Mr. Mikati is fully free to spend his millions the way he likes and wishes, but as a politician who portrays himself as man who cares about his city and its residents it would have been more productive, humane and passionate if he had spent this money on his city’s residents who sadly elected him as their MP representative?
