Although Trump has now named many of his foreign policy advisors, the one who you've been seeing the most in the media is Walid Phares. Curious about his background, I checked Wikipedia and learned that he's Lebanese Christian (from Beirut).
I thought I'd heard that name before -- sure enough, the only solid pro-Trump host on Fox News, Judge Jeanine Pirro, has a maiden name of Ferris. She's also Lebanese Christian (from upstate New York).
Then after watching a clip from The View, where the hen party actually warms up to Trump in the wake of yet another radical Islamic terrorist attack, I checked the background of the exotic Paula, and like magic, her surname is Faris too. She's half-Lebanese and Christian (from the Ann Arbor metro area in Michigan).
It turns out that Phares / Ferris / Faris is a common surname among Lebanese Christians, meaning "knight". Trump attracts fighters, not hiders. It's one thing for Levantine Christians in general to be drawn to him, but it's strange how many come from the same genealogy, as though most of his English supporters were named Knight, or his French supporters Chevalier.
Sounds like a good way to navigate our way through a people and a region that we don't know much about, in the Near and Middle East -- look for other people with this surname, in the same way that we'd look for other members of the Trump tribe, and avoid other members of the Bush clan. That will be especially more useful when dealing with a region where clan politics are more important than they are here.
