Lebanese Currency is ‘Safe’ says Salameh, slams Aoun’s ‘bankruptcy’ remarks

riad salamehRiad Salameh, Governor of Banque Du Liban assured  the  investors on Wednesday that the Lebanese currency is “safe and there is no crisis,” slamming reports of “bankruptcy,” LBCI said.

“The Lebanese currency is doing fine. Rumors about bankruptcy are merely political bidding,” he said on the sidelines of an annual meeting of the Union of Arab Securities held in Beirut.

“Lebanon is safe because it does not have high assets in foreign currency, and its banking sector enjoys liquidity, capital and capitalization. There is a large group of investors who believe in investing in Lebanon,” he assured.

On Friday, President Michel Aoun said during talks with Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rai that Lebanon was “bankrupt”, as he urged the need to control the country’s finances.

      Y K we are waiting on you to show up then we start throwing rocks at you. Lol

      • Y K

        No, Farah, you’re not “waiting on” me. In fact, I’m afraid any establishment unwise enough to hire your services would go out of business in a flash.

        • Danny Farah

          Sure thing Mr. Controller because anyone has someone Jewish working there will run it over. Then they will create their inflation prices and have someone like Hitler go after them as an excuse. That’s what happened in German. The Jewish businesses controlled the prices and it was easy enough for the Germans to support the furor. Wherever you guys exists you want to take over. that’s what you done in Palestine and in the middle east and you still not satisfied. The evil of Persian empire is getting close to the Evil Jewish empire and they will both clash and all hell will break loose.

            More moronic, subliterate Arab logorrhea. But then maybe it’s good so. Does away with any illusions civilized people might have about (most of) Lebanon’s “Christians”. You’re on your own, pal. Nobody’s coming to help you. 🙂

            First, not sure you’re a “homō”. More like a human parasite. And second, this is not about you, or even about Farah as a person. It’s about a collective, societal problem of which you both are part, to varying degrees.

            Zionists and Wahhabi = two faces of the same coin.

            “On Tuesday in New York City, MBS reportedly met with Henry Kissinger, former president Bill Clinton and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Senator Chuck Schumer, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and businessman and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. MBS was also reportedly set to meet with Jewish leaders, with groups represented at the meeting including AIPAC, the Conference of Presidents, Jewish Federations of North America, ADL, AJC and B’nai B’rith.

            MBS met U.S. President Donald Trump in the Oval Office late last week, in a meeting that sparked headlines for the awkward interaction between the leaders as Trump boasted of U.S. arms sales to the Saudis.

            Other notable media meetings include dinner with
            The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman, Rupert Murdoch, The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, meetings with the editorial boards of the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle, as well as interviews with Time and Vanity Fair.”

            Stop telling us Christians that Israel tried to help us. you were helping yourself. Besides many times the Syrian army in the past destroyed cities while you watched. the only time you came supposedly for our help is to liquidate the PLO and their populations in lebanon. You let Bashir Gemayel die because he was not going to obey the terrorist Begin. So you figured by him getting killed then it will create great emotions among the CHristians and you can easily dispatch Elie Hobeika and the LF forces to eliminate everyone in the camp. While IDF soldiers stood outside the camps to make sure no one flees so they get killed too. Stop playing moral dude and all you wanted to make Lebanon part of your grand plan by trying to appoint a strong Christian leader who will obey the Jewish state instruction. Again you found out Bashir was not going to have it that way so you either help eliminate him or basically knew about it and didn’t warn him. But you jackasses could not wait after the PLO left and you wanted to force a peace treaty on Lebanon which Bashir rejected since we were still at state of war and we had 10’s of thousands of Syrian soldiers in Lebanon. All you want what’s good for you. You could have cared less about Christians period. Besides the Christians who had interactions with IDF said that the latter treated them as if they beneath them. stop your moronic sayings that you tried to save us. While the christians and minorities getting butchered by Daesh and Al Qaeda you are treating their wounded in the Hospitals. You are nothing but a hypocrites and you can never be trusted. that doesn’t mean I do trust Hezbollah and Iran any more than you, but at least Hezbollah is Lebanese and to some extent I would have little sympathy toward them. We (Christians) thought of you as special since we were both threatened by other arabs and muslims but all it was you wanted to use us nothing else.

            You truly need some qualified help, Farah. Not from “Israel”, but from a shrink. Maybe he/she can explain you the meaning of “logorrhea” in a language that you actually understand.

          • Hind Abyad

            Happy “logorrhea” to you too..

            ‘‘Before Islam: When Saudi Arabia Was a Jewish Kingdom’ was published in the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz.

            “As ancient ‘Arabian’ inscriptions referring to the Jewish massacre of the Christians of ‘Najran’ have recently been discovered by a French archaeological expedition in South of Saudi Arabia, the (Israeli) author was left wondering whether those Jewish militants headed by Dhu Nuwas were real Jews.
            The fact of the matter is that those earlier ruthless warriors (with their culture of unbending belligerence and intolerance) are the genuine Jews.
            The Haartez Journalist, as well as most of the modern Israeli settlers who are occupying Palestine, are actually the unreal ones.

            In the view of modern scholars of the Late Antiquity History, Dhu Nuwas’s decision to compel conversion to Judaism on pain of death can only be explained in terms of his deep religious and cultural convictions. In other words; the Arabian and Yemenite Tribal culture of ‘Takfir’’.
