    Hi Elia~~ The point that I was trying to make is that Lebanon is not all Islam, as many right-wing American commentators would have us believe. I got my information from an encyclopedia. What is your reference? I’d be glad to re-post with corrected information if you provide it to me. Thanks. –Sonnie
