The Dutch ambassador to Lebanon has asked the Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (see pic), the main Shi'ite cleric in Lebanon, for a meeting on Monday.
The meeting is sceduled for Monday 10 o'clock.
This according to Hani al Abdullah, the spokesperson of Mr. Fadlallah.
"I assume it is about the Wilders movie," said Al Abdullah, on Friday.
Mr. Fadlallah is, for most Shi'ites in Lebanon, the most important scolar and religious leader in the country. Many of his critics though claim he belongs to Hezbollah (The Party of God). But I've interviewed Mr. Fadlallah once and he rigorously denied these claims.
Anyhow. Monday 10 o'clock - meeting between the Dutch ambassador and Mr. Fadlallah.
It's good to see the Dutch reaching out to Muslims.
By the way: The Dutch embassy in Beirut is OPEN today.
