CWN Editor's Note: Maronite Catholic Patriarch Bechara Rai has decried a new Israeli law that proclaims Israel as “the nation-state of the Jewish people.” The Lebanese cardinal said that the legislation is “ignoble, anti-democratic, and anti-pluralist” insofar as it fails to recognize Israel’s Christian and Muslim citizens.
