Video of Marcel Ghanem Insulting Charles Aznavour
Translation of the video content from Arabic to English
“The Best thing Charles Aznavour has said today, as we were shocked to read, is that he recommended moving the prosecuted Minorities of the east to unpopulated villages and areas of France to revive them. With all “Senility,” Charles Aznavour said that it will just cost a modest amount of money to buy the necessary tools to start the work in the fields.”
Marcel adding his opinion mockingly said (Christians, Yezidis, and minorities should go and cultivate the lands and empty villages of France to revive them.)
Our Message as Armenians to Marcel Ghanem
We are living in a free world, where anyone can express his opinion and suggestions, as a journalist of course you can criticize this and that, direct the audience as if this is a bad call or not, and perhaps suggest a better alternative, but to insult a man like Charles Aznavour is really a bad call to get some ratings on LBCI…
We know where the Channel in general and your show particularly stands these days, but it is not our objective to go through that subject. Our only demand is for you to correct the mistake you have made…

Marcel Ghanem “bi kel kharaf” interviews Charles Aznavour
On Sunday 07-June-2015 Marcel Ghanem interviewed Charles Aznavour on “kalam el nas”, the political discussion talk show of LBCI Lebanese TV channel.
Announcements and promos of the upcoming talk show on Sunday flooded social media and the LBCI, LDC TV channels.
But the thing is back in August 2014 Mr. Marcel Ghanem insulted Charles Aznavour with his shocking intro live on air with his Famous words calling Aznavour “bi Kel kharaf” mentally unstable (senile) and he did not even bother to apologize.
I wonder why would you bother to interview a KHERFEN (as you described him)? No words can describe this embarrassment, we want our readers to watch the video above and the one below.

Bravo Marcel, You're 100% right, although i live in Paris, this is disgraceful and disrespectful to all the Christian communities as well as all the minorities inhabiting these lands for ages. Charles Aznavour stick to singing "Emmenez moi" it suits you better.
At the end of the day marcel ghanem was very disrespectful towards someone. Regardless of LBC's reasons to do so, I don't think any of the people commenting here would've accepted anybody calling their father their grandfather or a relative of theirs senile or any other rude word.

yeah, so what?! People argue all the time and I’m sure he will confront aznavour for his statement in the next interview. And yes, aznavour does sound senile when he talks this kind of bullcrap
