Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win
in response to reader comment: ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT LEBANON

Submitted by Daisy (United States), Aug 2, 2006 at 22:27

"12. There are around 10 Million Lebanese outside Lebanon!"

Lebanese Boy: Vijay, Rachelle, Jason, Jerry & Moshe (so far) have all had questions and comments that you'd be wise to take to heart and contemplate seriously.

I have this for you:

# Why are 10 million Lebanese living outside of Lebanon?

# How many Christian Lebanese have fled for their lives from Lebanese Islamists?

# And how many of them have been given sheltered safe haven in Israel?

# How many Christian Lebanese have Israelis assisted in finding safe harbor elsewhere in the world?

# How many long to be re-united with their families in Lebanon (but cannot return because it's simply too dangerous for them)?

# What is the most dangerous country in the world for Christian Lebanese to be living in today? (hint: it begins with "Le" and ends with the letters "on")

# What religious group in Lebanon has largely been responsible for creating and maintaining all the wonderful cultural institutions you've listed? (hint: it begins with the letter "C" and ends with "ian")

# Last .. but certainly not least .. why does Hizbullah (Lebanese Islamists) claim to be outraged by the treatment of the "Palestinians"? What country could so not bear to have them as residents that they threw them not so awfully long ago? Answer? Lebanon.
