Israel to target Christians in Lebanon
Hows that for a title?
Israel, the Jewish state, since 1948 – has caused much help and damage to it’s neighbor to the north, Lebanon.
Historically, it has been said, that Israeli Jews, and Lebanese Christians, have had des ententes, viewing it as a survival of existence “in a world of raging Islam”, as has been uttered by Zionists. So naturally, Lebanese Christians, and Israeli Jews – have had a curious and pondering eye toward each other.
The Gemayels, a prominent Maronite family of tradition and long commitment to Lebanon’s politics were once amicably in contact with past governments in Israel. Even still recently, Amine Gemayel, the son of Pierre, and brother of Bashir, was the first to announce talks with Israel after the Syrian withdrawal in 2005, which strongly forbade Lebanon having any talks with Israel.
The top disagreement Lebanese Christians and Israeli Jews have, is the issue of 400’000 Palestinian refugees residing in tiny, religiously sensitive Lebanon; Palestinian refugees were chased by Israel into Lebanon in the late 40’s and early 50’s.
It has become a case of Palestinians threatening Jewish existence in the ‘Holy land’, or a threat to Christianity’s existence in the Holy land. (Qana: 1996, and 2006)
