The political wheels in Beirut may be beginning to fall off. Lebanon's current president, Michel Suleiman, is set to step down when his term expires on May 25, and Lebanon's two main political blocks are at loggerheads over his successor

Lebanon has become a basket case thanks to the growth of Hezbollah and other Islamist terror groups.
Thanks Cal.

Lebanon should be an object lesson for all of us.It was once a beautiful peaceful country unti the islamists reached sufficient numbers to make demands and get into positions of authoriiy.Then they wanted to become the dominant group.and assume control.This can happen in any country

A once beautiful country ruined by politicians and terrorists who don't even belong there.

@Walter Firth--
It wasn't Muslims who ruthlessly and brutally murdered thousands of innocent, defenseless people over two days in the Sabra and Shatila massacre--that was Christians. And it wasn't Muslims who aided and abetted the atrocity, standing by watching the whole thing happen--that was Jews.

It wasn't Muslims who aerial bombed large sections of densely populated urban areas and a large amount of infrastructure in Lebanon--that was Jews.

It wasn't Muslims using white phosphorous indiscriminately in civilian areas in Lebanon (also Gaza)--that was Jews.

It wasn't Muslims who indiscriminately littered southern Lebanon with more than a million cluster bomblets, the vast majority in the last ten days of the war--that was Jews. Cluster bombs are not precision weapons, the Multiple Launch Rocket Systems used are notoriously inaccurate. They also have a very high detonation failure rate--as many as 500,000 unexploded bomblets were left behind, which have killed a number of innocent civilians. "What we did was insane and monstrous, we covered entire towns in cluster bombs," the head of an IDF rocket unit in Lebanon said regarding the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous shells during the war.

As far as I know, there were no Muslims involved in America's bloody and brutal Civil War, either. The point is that you're expressing a very narrow perspective that amounts to Islamophobia.
