Aoun allying with Hezbollah

Reader comment on item: Muslims Turn away from Islamism

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jul 16, 2014 at 14:43

Professor, I seem to recall deals struck between Christians and Muslims in Lebanon for decades.

What is needed to break this cycle of dependency? After all, what Father Gabriel Nadaf has to offer is far better than what can be offered by Hamas, Hezbollah, and other jihadist groups.

Thank you.

Strangely, the historically stalwart Maronites have become dhimmis while the historically dhimmi Copts have become stalwarts.
