Israel's president Shimon Peres fainted the other day and was soon after released from the hospital after having been checked out by doctors.
Jumblatt had this to say about the incident:
A quick and rough translation: even Satan has refused to welcome Peres after fainting and if fate had willed it to be final, the world would have gotten rid of this historic lie that this guy has embodied for decades during the Arab-Israeli conflict . . . and we hope (or rather wish) that the next time around, for Satan to calculate correctly and invite Peres to him one final time, maybe this way, he (Satan that is) would benefit humanity in some way.
Whether you like Jumblatt or not, you have to agree that he is sometimes very theatrical and amusing!
