He isnt of Shia background. He is of Armenian background.out of curiosity, why don't you share with us how you went from shiism to marxism? (i am assuming you hail from a shite background so feel free to correct me if i am wrong) . and how you realized that this new "ism" is the way to go. maybe this way you could inspire rafidi to follow in your footsteps. did carl marx appear to you on your journey from nabatieh to florence and you were reborn a materialist?
