Hey Benjamin, I appreciate your response and especially resonated with your first point about the importance of advocating for freedom. The Maronites fight for independence and willingness to sacrifice to continue the have the right to practice their religion had to have informed attitudes in the region beyond the Maronite population. You touch on this saying Jews and Muslims can draw from this spirit to live and worship in peace across the Near East and I agree with you – I think this is a fantastic “case study” that many people in the area or studying the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could benefit from informing themselves on.
