Reply To: What were the “three ascendancies?” How did these ascendancies lead to the current situation in Lebanon?

Alex Cevallos

This is an exceptional synopsis of the “three ascendancies” and their cause in the current situation in Lebanon. Lebanon is unique because it is a very diverse group of Arabs in the region. In addition, the diversity is extremely diverse in religion. Therefore, what will be the uniting factor between Christians and Muslims? What will be the uniting factor for the Armenians who are not Arab? The nation is small geographically, but has a far and high reach religiously and politically. This will no doubt be an internal effort, but outside sources and connections like Christians in the West might need to help.
