Explicit defense of the Great Faith ought to be a political issue in American politics, because ultimately it is our only defense. This does not mean any special embrace of a particular faith. Bahá’í, Zoroastrians, Sikhs are among those other faiths who also want simply to be left in peace, like Jews and Christians.
Defending the Great Faith does, however, mean directly, boldly, and unapologetically stating that the reason Israel is an oasis of safety, democracy, and liberty is because of its connection to the Jewish people – and that Lebanon, a land once also safe, democratic, and free, has been destroyed because the historic Christian majority there has been driven into exile.
The shadows in our world are growing. The hour is late. We need to begin today the peaceful but firm campaign to oppose the looming forces who hate the Great Faith.
