40% of Lebanese people are Christian. True. But not those who live in Lebanon. Most Christians have left to get away from the Islamic insanity.

no actually the majority of those who are outside lebanon are sunni and shiite muslims.
Canada is a perfect example, most of the lebanese in Canada are muslims unless u look at Montreal, Michigan is another example ; Detroit is called little "Dahiyeh" and Dahiyeh is the area that was heavily hit by Israeli in the last 2 weeks.so yes there are a lot of Christians who left lebanon during the last 30 yrs,but there are far more muslims outside lebanon.

All of these statistics and little fact about Lebanon are interesting, and at one time a lot of them may well have been true. Right now, the Israelis have bombed the country to rat****. For the most part, the power plants are gone, almost all major bridges are destroyed, I'm sure water treatment plants have also been destroyed. All these little statistics and bits of information are unthinking and shallow to say the least. Maybe a bit of reading is in order.

Yes, many Muslims have also recognized the insanity of living in a country controlled by Islamic majority. It's good to know they don't want their children raised in a society based on hate and lies.

(and 'yes, not no', I am right when I say that 40% of the population in Lebanon is not Chistian. The majority of 'Christians' on Lebanese voting lists have the sense to get out from under the thumb of Islamic insanity and live in Europe, North America and especially in South America (Brazil).

okay if u say so

but just one thing to keep in mind , this and similar problems of thinking that u understand the ME and its crisis as well as its stats are a major problem.
this therad is intended to show some true statistics about lebanon.

Then don't provide misinformation. One can provide 'a fact' that the favorite sport of the Irish is NFL football. It's important to point out, however, that most of those Irish are americans. The same goes with '40%' of Lebanese being Christian... important not to fudge reality and point out they don't live in Lebanon.
