Say what, Hariri?

Lebanon’s new Prime Minister makes a mockery of the Arabic language.

December 13, 2009 2:03 by

Kipp received a video clip this afternoon from a friend (take a bow, Miss M) that we thought you should see.

The newly elected Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is the subject of a popular montage on YouTube, due to his poorly delivered speech last week to the Lebanese Parliament. The clip features Hariri butchering the Arabic language, interspersed with scenes of a popular Egyptian theater production from the 1980s.

The PM’s Arabic was so poor that another politician offered to finish reading Hariri’s speech for him.

    Saad Hariri was never a politician material.. he’s got nothing to impress the lebanese with.. those who support him do so cause he paid them well.. except for those hypocrits, the lebanse genta with significant grey material consider he’s a nobody and a mafioso..

    Mr Hariri was brought in to carry out an agenda that is dictated to him. He is not ashamed of his illiteracy, and neither should we. His worth is only proportionate to his wealth and the influence of his puppet masters.

    Saad Al Hariri is Just a Saudi acting like lebanese..

    Look at the way he ran after syria for a blessing..
