Regarding the racist comment by a representative of the Lebanese Forces
Regarding the racist and utterly disgusting comment made by a representative of the Lebanese Forces in “American University of Beirut” against foreign workers, regardless of their nationality, we the SSNP students wish to clarify the following:
1. The claim that this is a personal position made from a ‘personal account’ does not change the ugliness of his racist mind, but rather confirms it.
2. We are surprised that the American University of Beirut can nurture this kind of despicable racist mentality in a world witnessing the ugliest form of racism at the hands of this individual’s party and allies, from Al Qaeda and ISIS to those nostalgic of the Apartheid regime, represented by their primary allies, the enemy state Israel and the KSA.
3. At a time when such a sick mentality is responsible for massacres of innocents in Syria, Iraq, and Palestine, as well as in Emanuel AME Church in South Carolina, US, we demand that the American University of Beirut takes disciplinary measures against this racist individual named elio Ibrahim (ِActive member in the social club), and we ask that our students be especially alert to such racist and criminal statements that could lead Lebanon to the same abyss following similar statements made in 1975 against ‘the foreigner’, the ‘Palestinian’, and the ‘Syrian’, as well as against fellow Lebanese citizens.
