12. Lebanese diaspora – Lebanese diaspora refers to Lebanese migrants and their descendants who, whether by choice or coercion, emigrated from Lebanon and now reside in other countries. There are more Lebanese outside of Lebanon, than within. The majority of the population consists of Lebanese Christians and Lebanese Muslims; however, there are some who are Druze, or Jewish. They trace their origin starting with the exodus that followed the 1860 Lebanon conflict in Ottoman Syria. Under the Lebanese nationality law, diaspora Lebanese do not have an automatic right of return to Lebanon. Of the diaspora, million are Lebanese citizens. The Lebanese diaspora, while historically trade-related, has more recently been linked with many Lebanese emigrating to Western countries. Currently around 60 % of Lebanese citizens resident in Lebanon around 40 % are Christian. The Americas have long been a destination for Lebanese migration, with Lebanese arriving in some countries at least early as the nineteenth century. The population of Brazil of either partial Lebanese descent is estimated at 7 million people by Arab-Brazilian organizations. Many Lebanese have also been settled for quite some time in the United States, Australia and in the European Union member states.

13. Lebanese people – The Lebanese people are the nation of Lebanon. The religious groups among the Lebanese people are Shias, Sunnis, Maronites, Greek Orthodox, Melkites, Protestants. There is a large diaspora in North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Africa. The term may also include those who had inhabited Anti-Lebanon mountains prior to the creation of the modern Lebanese state. There is no distinct pattern that shows that one community carries significantly more Phoenician than another." It is therefore difficult to have an demographic analysis of Lebanese society. Like the Phoenicians, the Lebanese have always traveled the world, many of them settling permanently, most notably in the last two centuries. Descendants of Lebanese Christians make up the majority of Lebanese people worldwide, appearing principally in the diaspora. Aramization transformed the ancient Lebanon into an Aramaic-speaking and region, making the population abandon their indigenous Canaanite Phoenician language and cultural norms. Most of the population would also abandon the polytheistic Canaanite religion in favour of Christianity. Thus, it is from the Arabization of Lebanon that the people receive the strongest cultural, ethnic imprint to date, although most would remain Christian. Their argument, based on the premise of ancestry, has recently been vindicated by some emerging genetic studies as discussed below. Some prefer to call them Lebanese as a sign of respect of Lebanon's long non-Arab past. However, they do contest whether from a Phoenician or later pre-Arab identity. Arab influence, nevertheless, applies to virtually all aspects of the Lebanese culture.Lebanese people – Estephan El Douaihy · Bashir Shihab II · Youssef Bey Karam · Charbel · Elias Peter Hoayek · Gibran Khalil Gibran · Camille Chamoun · Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah · Fairuz · Rafic Hariri · Michel Suleiman · Amin Maalouf · Mario Kassar · Rabih Abou-Khalil · Haifa Wehbe · Youssef Mohamad · Myriam Fares · Nancy Ajram

Turkey responded by accusing the Pope of having a "mentality" against the country. The Vatican strongly denied this, claiming that the Pope had actually called for reconciliation between Armenians and Turks. It further condemns the denial of the Armenian Genocide by its official and unofficial agents and supporters. The IAGS has consistently identified the Ottoman massacres of Armenians as genocide. From page 18, D. It had previously done so in 1987, 2000, 2005. The European Parliament commended the message the pontiff had delivered. The Council of Europe recognized the Armenian Genocide on May 2001. On November 1989 the Union for Reform Judaism passed a resolution on recognition of the Armenian Genocide. On reflection, we have come to share the view of Sr. that the consequences of those actions were indeed tantamount to genocide. If the genocide had existed then, they would have called it genocide.

20. Druze in Lebanon – Druze in Lebanon refers to adherents of the Druze faith, an ethnoreligious esoteric group originating from the Near East who self identify as unitarians. The Lebanese Druze people are believed to constitute about 5% of the total population of Lebanon. The Druze, who refer as al-Muwahhideen, or "believers in one God," are concentrated in the rural, mountainous areas east and south of Beirut. Under the political division the Druze community is designated as one of the five Lebanese Muslim communities. Lebanon's constitution was intended to guarantee political representation for each of the nation's ethno-religious groups. Thus, they are not regarded as Islamic". The Druze beliefs incorporate elements of Ismailism, Gnosticism, other philosophies. The Druze call themselves Ahl al-Tawhid "People of Unitarianism or Monotheism" or al-Muwaḥḥidūn." The Druze follow a style of isolation where no conversion is allowed, neither out of, or into, the religion. When Druze live among people of other religions, they try to blend in, in order to protect their religion and their own safety. They can pray depending on where they are. This system is apparently changing in modern times, where more security has allowed Druze to be more open about their religious belonging." Before and during the Lebanese Civil War, the Druze were in Palestinian resistance represented by the PLO. Jumblatt's post-2005 position diverged sharply from the tradition of his family. He also accused Damascus of being behind the 1977 assassination of Kamal Jumblatt, expressing for the first time what many knew he privately suspected.Druze in Lebanon

The Lebanese Sunni Muslims are concentrated in west Beirut, Sidon and in the countryside of the Akkar. There is no distinct pattern that shows that one community carries significantly more Phoenician than another." Genealogical testing has shown that 24.8 % of Lebanese Muslims belong to the Y-DNA haplogroup J1. Although there is ancestral roots, these studies show some difference was found between Muslims and non-Muslims in Lebanon, of whom only 17.1 % have this haplotype.
