Meet the Lebanese characters in the Petraeus affair: on the "persecution" of Catholics in Lebanon

"But Kelley's brother, David Khawam, said neither of his sisters had anything but a social relationship with Petraeus. He said Jill is a born giver who early on channeled her efforts into political fundraising and later to the military.  It is a quality, he said, born of the Catholic family's persecution in their native Lebanon; when he, Jill and Natalie were small children, the family fled to the United States, he said."   So who is persecuting Catholics in Lebanon?  It just occurred to me: it must be the bogus story that they concocted for the asylum request in the US.
