The Daily Star wrote: "As to whether the delegation's [the Opposition delegation sent to Europe] initiative could be viewed as a search for foreign backup, [Ghattas] Khoury said: "The world has become a global village and the Lebanese cause has become part of people's discussions around the world."
"Let's remember that the initial decision for Syrian troops to enter Lebanon [in 1976] was international."
"There has always been international agreement about this issue, as well as an Arab and international agreement on the Taif Accord. The allegations about us seeking foreign backup are not linked to our actual goal. Our goal is to inform the world of our will to build a nation."
"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."
