"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Asiri Urges Lebanese not to Use Cartoon to Sabotage Ties with Arabs- Naharnet

Saudi Ambassador Ali Awadh Asiri urged the Lebanese on Saturday not to use a caricature deemed insulting for Lebanon to sabotage the country’s ties with Arab states.
“The Lebanese should keep the caricature within its journalistic frame as clarified by Asharq al-Awsat newspaper so that it is not used by some sides that are trying to damage Lebanon’s relations with its Arab brethren,” Asiri said in a statement.
A group of activists briefly raided the office of the Saudi-owned newspaper in Beirut, protesting the cartoon that was published in its Friday edition.
