MARINE LE PEN IN LEBANON REFUSED TO WEAR A HEADSCARF
21 FEBRUARY 2017 - BEIRUT — France’s far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen refused to don a headscarf for a meeting with Lebanon’s top Sunni Muslim cleric and walked away from the scheduled appointment after a brief squabble at the entrance. Le Pen, who was on a three-day visit to Lebanon and met senior officials, was to meet with the country’s grand mufti, Sheikh Abdel-Latif Derian. Shortly after she arrived at his office, one of his aides handed her a white headscarf to put on. Following a discussion with his aides that lasted few minutes, she refused and returned to her car.
