Amine Gemayel, the former President of Lebanon, warns that the Arab world is experiencing a “crisis of religious pluralism” driven by “the rise of religious extremists,” which threatens “any community which does not constitute the majority” – including Druze, Shiite Muslims, Alawites, Bahá’is, and “Sunni Muslims living in Shiite-dominated areas.”
