TNA - Beirut
President of the Lebanese Republic, General Michel Sleiman, called the major powers to "reconsider democracy and its outlook for this democracy," adding "It's true that they support democracy in the Arab region, but the question arises what about "Israel", "What about Palestine, is it to apply democracy in them or no? Palestine had that 130 supporting countries to become a full member of the United Nations, but they withhold this right in the Security Council, and therefore this is not a democracy, while there is an "Israeli" occupation of parts of Lebanon and the Golan, and going in building the settlement and Judaization of Quds which is not a democracy. "
