Congratulations to President Michel Aoun, Consul General of Lebanon Dr. Bilal Qabalan and the Great People of Lebanon!
Shared by Imam Elahi on Facebook- "I just came back home from an amazing assembly of joy and unity celebrated Lebanon National Day of Independence! عيد الإستقلال اللبناني Eid Al-Istiqlal - at the Byblos Banquet Hall.
In November 22nd 1943, 73 years ago today, Lebanon gained its independence from French Mandate rule that last for 23 year!
Ironically, the Israeli military occupation of Southern Lebanon also lasted for 22 years. Liberation Day is celebrated annually on May 25th, since the liberation of the South on May 24, 2000!
In this evening's gathering hundreds of community leaders, activists, interfaith groups and city officials expressed their solidarity with the people and government of Lebanon.
I was happy to have a chance for a friendly conversation with our mayor of Dearborn John O'Reilly and our Chief of Police Ronald Haddad about people's hopes, concerns and expectations after the recent elections!
I pledged the full support of Islamic House of Wisdom in anything we can do to serve the residents of Dearborn, Dearborn Heights and other neighboring cities and towns!"
