    • From The Prophet “Of the good in you I can speak, but not of the evil.For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger andthirst?Verily when good is hungry it seeks food even in darkcaves, and when it thirsts it drinks even of deadwaters.” – Kahlil Gibran
    • Lebanon
    • “One interesting fact that I found about Lebanon is that it in ancienttimes its cities were major ports and outposts for both the Romanand Phoenician empires. I think that this historical information isimportant because in order to understand a culture and country itis important to understand its past. I got this fact fromhttp://www.lebanon-tourism.gov.lb/Default.aspx.” Adam“When I researched interesting facts about Lebanon, I cameacross something that I thought was pretty cool. The ancientLebanese, who were known as the Phoenicians, were the first todevelop the alphabet in 1100 B.C. Even though they did it just tomake it easier to trade with other nations, it ended up turning intothe alphabet that is still used by many nations today. I did knowthe Phoenicians created the alphabet but I did not know that theywere from Lebanon.”http://www.berro.com/lebaneseindex/lebanon_interesting_facts.htm Matt
    •  “One piece of information that I found to be interesting about Mikhail Naimy was that he served in the United States army and participated in World War one. This surprised me because he only lived in the United States for 20 years but he was still dedicated enough to the U.S. To enlist and fight for the country. It just surprised me that someone from another country could be so dedicated to ours.” http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P2-8051592.html Alanna “I found that Lebanon declared its independence on November 26, 1941 after being occupied by the French and British. I find that interesting because 1941 was not that long ago. In 1944, France gave all power to the Lebanese government. So much history has unfolded only a short time ago.” http://www.lebanonembassyus.org/Kids/History.htm Jeannette
    • Interesting Facts About Lebanon …“Israel and Lebanon have had conflicts: one in 1948[Palestine Vs Israel] and then in 2006. I decided toshare this information because it relates to the literaturewe read in the beginning with the Jewish people andthem fighting for their land.” Howard
    • “I found some interesting information about Lebanon on the CIA website:Lacking a treaty or other documentation describing theboundary, portions of the Lebanon-Syria boundary areunclear with several sections in dispute; since 2000,Lebanon has claimed Shaba Farms area in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights; the roughly 2,000-strong UNInterim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has been in placesince 1978” Tashi
    • “It is one of the most populated countries in the world, many Lebanese have moved outside of Lebanon. In fact more than 10 million Lebanese live outside of Lebanon! I found this interesting because it leads me to the conclusion that Lebanese people are looking to greaten themselves.” Paxton
    • “One piece of information that I found interesting was that there are many different religions in Lebanon. There are at least seventeen different types of religions in Lebanon today [main ones are Islam and Christianity]. I found this on a website called www.cia.gov. I picked this because I think that this could have had something to do with different groups of people who are powerful or who are not. It reminds me of the ways in which people are divided. It is like the poor verses the rich. Religions divide people, thus resulting in segregation within the same race.” Carley
