It is a shame that Rafei was vetoed off the Future list by the Americans! He would have been an excellent addition, he has done great work in Tripoli in the 60s/70s providing medical services for the poor. I know that his association with the Baath is frowned upon but (Iraqi) Baath in Lebanon was mostly middle class teachers/civil servants and not the thugs governing Iraq or the Quanso gang.
