An Important defection in Lebanon

The Daily Star - Politics - Sfeir voices support for peaceful removal of President Lahoud: "In an interview with As-Safir, Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Butros Sfeir said he supported the ousting of President Emile Lahoud peacefully and through legitimate means. 'If the president is unable to run things it means that his position is almost vacant,' he said. 'When we see that international forces do not recognize him ... and people in general do not count on him to run the country's affairs, the outcome becomes clear.'"
