Just some numbers (I like numbers):
Brazil has the largest Lebanese community; an astonishing 9 million people, or 6% of the total population, claim Lebanese ancestry. In Sao Paulo alone there are 1 million Lebanese. 10% of all elected politicians in Brazil are of Lebanese descent, and famous Lebanese Brazilians include Brian Peter Medawar (winner of the Nobel Laureate in Medicine in 1960 for the discovery of acquired immunological tolerance) and Ziad Fazah (reportedly the world’s greatest polyglot, who speaks 55 languages);
After that comes the USA, where 3 million people claim to be of Lebanese descent. Among them have been senators, businessman and Hollywoodstars (like Yasmine Bleeth, and Mexican-born Selma Hayek);
Than there is Europe - don't know how many Lebanese live there though, but especially France has a large community;
Canada has 300,000 people of Lebanese descent within its borders; half of them (150,000) live in Montreal. Prominent Lebanese-Canadians include senator Pierre De Bané, councillor of the city of Ottawa Mac Harb and writer Wajdi Mouawad.
And then there is Australia, which has 300,000 inhabitants of Lebanese descent too, mainly in Melbourne and Sydney.
According to my source, 80% of all Lebanese live abroad. Ain't that something!
