President of the Universal Syriac Union Party Mrad calls for a comprehensive Christian uprising in Lebanon

BEIRUT — President of the Universal Syriac Union Party (USUP) in Lebanon Ibrahim Mrad issued a statement against the Iranian control in Lebanon.

“What we experience today is a complete control of Lebanon, which the Christians built for all. We made Lebanon a dream of every human being who aspires to freedom, progress, prosperity and democracy,” said Mrad.

“However, the Christian pioneering role has been cancelled at all levels, due to the constant conspiracy against them, since founding Greater Lebanon.”

Mrad stressed the necessity of a comprehensive Christian uprising against this central regime and Iranian control, that destroyed the Lebanese state, seized Lebanon wealth and led Lebanese people to poverty, ignorance, hunger, oppression.

“We, as Christians, must first restore our existence and dignity, through an explicit and rapid adoption of a federal system, before it is too late,” Mrad concluded.
