Keep it focused! The most-evil actors in this drama are Anglo American “conservatives” (actually, the most Liberal of Classical Liberals, interestingly enough). Most of the upset in the postwar Middle East came from American and/or Saudi meddling in matters not of their interest. The most egregious characters are American “conservative” greedsters… who bear no resemblance whatsoever to historical Conservatives such as Bismarck, Stolypin, or Diefenbaker, nor to modern Conservatives such as Marine le Pen or Viktor Orbán. They’re mostly crass opportunists and Neoliberal poseurs (such as Rod Dreher… who preaches “paleoconservatism”, yet, lived in four different cities in four different regions within a five-year-period… a peripatetic Liberal Bedouin, no conservative, he!)… none of them respect Rootedness or Tradition or Locality… all are Classical Anglo American Opportunists… “go where the jobs are”. No one who preaches meritocracy is a Conservative… and all American “conservatives” do preach such.
The greatest enemies of the Ancient Christian Communities of the Middle East are in the US Republican Party and call themselves “conservatives”… no decent person can have anything to do with such amoral depraved greedsters… let alone Christ’s Church. Support the Middle Eastern Christians… fight “conservatism” wherever it surfaces, and you’ll fight the main foes of our Middle Eastern coreligionists. After all, who’ve been the main enablers of the Saudi extremists all these years? Do reflect on that…
