Genuine students don't ask 3 loaded questions at once. It makes them look more interested in setting traps for their teacher than learningI am going to go with the flow, with you on this one
But, as always, I want to learn more:
"They brought foreign men into Lebanon..." - Who did they bring?
"Control over Lebanon's finances..." - Who has that control?
"Perpetually threatening us with foreign occupation" - Who's the threat?
No need to think that way, just identify with your own kind and deal with others in the most ethical and humane way possible and you'd live happily ever after. Difference doesn't equal hate, bad treatment is what causes hate.Lebanese is just a bunch of tribes who hate each other but like to eat shish tawouk.
Badda federation iza mech confederation.
Lebanese should realize we need decentralization.
Deux négations ne font pas une nation...
Split the cake and let's get over it...
Split the country? In theory it wouldn't be a bad idea, considering that us Lebanese talk the talk of saying we all love each other and are all Lebanese but when push comes to shove we take up arms for our own groups and invite foreign terrorists into our country.
True, furthermore, Phoenicia was never a country/Kingdome per say. it was 3-4 major cities and each city had its own ruler, pretty much the same way nowadays.This society as it is now, will never advance.The Lebanese are Phoenician so let's go build boats and start trading in the Mediterranean sea instead of wasting time with religion/politician...

we are not doing the same, we are doing worse, we did not learn from previous experience.You are right and that's maybe why they weren't able to survive for a longer time and conserve their culture. Are we doing the same thing right now? destroying traditional places to build random buildings, no feeling of unity...
Cannot argue with that, you are completely right.we are not doing the same, we are doing worse, we did not learn from previous experience.
as long as we have 17 different history books things will not change. This is the 1st time in my life I hear fpm giving up when they said that, we tried to make a change but we could not. It is not 1 identity crises my friend, but 4 million of them.
