Whatever happened no body can be a traitor against his own country and armyMost historians and political analysts agree that it was Christians, precisely far-Right Maronites, who started the cycle of sectarian violence.
Following an assassination attempt on Pierre Gemayel, which was blamed on the PLO, the Kataeb responded by attacking a bus carrying Palestinians, killing most on board, including women and children.
This horrible crime was followed by the Karantina massacre which took the lives of not only Palestinian refugees but also many Lebanese Muslim civilians.
What started as clashes between the PLO and Kataeb turned into a bitter sectarian war where killing based on religion was the norm.
The reason Lebanese Muslims sided with the Palestinians in the first place is due to the injustices they suffered at the hands of political Maronitism.
For years, Maronites had been monopolizing the economy and marginalizing all other sects, which resulted in the resentment of Muslims and Druze against Maronites.
For instance, in 1974, Camille Chamoun launched a war against Sidon's poor by banning them from fishing on its coast.
One can argue there are many causes for the civil war, but it my opinion it boils down to one thing: Maronite arrogance.
Why Lebanon will be the only Arab state to open its borders to terrorists attacks of the Palestinians on the world
Maronite agreed to Lebanon independence from France
Muslims received a lot from Independent Lebanon
There was Social inequality but the Muslims socio economic position was better every year
In 1960 Christians agreed to equality in administrative position
Everything was better than the civil war
The major problem was Muslims support to the Palestinians against their own country
All Arab states refused to give a green light to the Palestinians except in Lebanon
Muslims Lebanese were different than Muslims all over the Middle East
