    The cure for Lebanon's ills is a lot more Christ and a lot less Muhammad

    That's too bad. I was there in '83 when the barracks incident occurred. Not good. The area is very unstable still. Used to be the "Riviera of the Mediterranean" back in the 70s.

    The Christian Lebanese don't like to even think of themselves as Arabs. They view themselves as closer to Europeans.

    Lebanon was much better when it was Phoenicia, where the alphabet was invented, before the scourge of islime

    I know - my wife's half Lebanese!!! She still has relatives in Beirut. Her Dad sends them $$$ every Christmas. They are Catholics - most of Lebanon was Christian (as I am sure you know) until "You Know Who" moved in and started spreading their "Peaceful Religion."

    My favorite olive oil is from Lebanon. The Maronite Christians had wanted to make peace with Israel a long time ago but the muslimes interfered and continue to do so in the name of the "religion of peace" allahu akbar.

    Wasn't it the influx of Palestinian refugees that ignited the civil war in Lebanon and turned it into a shit hole?

    The Lebanese know how to take care of the Palesteenians, pretty much by marginalizing them so they can't further mess up the country. Same with the Jordanians.

    We should let them go home. That would solve a lot of problems.
