Regina Snayfir was a fighter in the Lebanese Forces militia in the 1980s. She later saw first hand scenes of torture and murder and left in disgust. She wrote a revealing account about her experience, and how the Maronite Patriarch did not react when she informed him about the dungeons of torture in Lebanese Forces’ prisons. She also said (in her memoir, Alqaytu As-Silah) that when she underwent military training, she remembered the most fanatic anti-Islam bigot who spoke to the fighters during training. She said that Walid Phares was the most passionate in mobilizing Christians to fight Muslims at that military base that she was at.(pp. 119-122).
