    great information
    I will correct a few, actually update

    1. there are 19 religious sects in Lebanon
    11. There are 4.4 Million Lebanese in Lebanon (according to latest election polls 2006, though there has not been an official count since 1932)
    12. There are around 12 Million Lebanese outside Lebanon

    we are a special lot alright,
    otherwise you can't convince me why so many countries/rulers/etc want a piece of us

    & yeah it is not proved or official or even entertained
    but there are increasing talks about natural gas & some form of oil found in the norther areas & in the sea.
    it looks like we might have some significant natural resources
    Allah be with us if that is true

    we have nothing (except water that we don't know how to conserve even) of resources other than the lebanese people & we have more conflicts/problems than most nations around the world
