A minute of Google, and the CIA worldbook tells me that Lebanon is 58% Muslim, 36% Christian.

If you ever plucked up the courage to visit Beirut you would find a great city full of wonderful people, great food, bars and restaurants. Yes, there are places you wouldn't walk around, just like every city. But the general population don't hate Westerners, and Westerners haven't been thrown out of the country.

21percent christion up to a few years ago it was 95 percent and why would anybody from england take there family to lebanon unless they were muslim themselves ' Latest from iran muslims parading around we hate english read the news 

What planet you live on go visit Beiruit like that

Funny how the patron saint of Beirut is one St George,  or that the latest survey (carried out by Yahoo)  in 2019 voted this as one of the must visit countries..they really must hate Westerners..eh?

They shot down a plane full of Iranians - most of the "foreigners" were ethnic Iranians with other citizenship.

The ayatollahs have had a bad week.  A dead military mastermind.  56 dead at his funeral.  Revenge strikes which did nothing but spook them into shooting down an airliner taking off from their own airport.I  wonder  if the "people who learned a lot"are working at the airport? lol

In your haste to try and score a cheap point with the SAM-downed airliner, you and Ticker completely missed the point I raised.

 

Which is quite ironic, since that downing happens to replicate, for their SAMs, my earlier point about their cruise missiles.

 

Feel free to have another go sometime.

A million European and American tourists in 2018.

 

When was Lebanon a 95% Christian country? Never, at a guess. 

 

Have you heard of Google? You can find out facts about the world, rather than making stuff up, or reading the Mail or Express.

Iran has admitted the accidental shooting down of the plane.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I don't think its an  accident. The flight had literally just taken off from Tehran International Airport. It would have been in an internationally recognised flight path out of that airport at 8000 feet it would have been  Under full Iranian air traffic control.

Just another excuse from the 'we didn't fire anything' propaganda machine.
 
 
The Iranians were no doubt hoping for US retaliation for their missile attacks and I wouldn’t put it past them to have deliberately shot down the airliner with the intention of blaming the US .

You really have an extraordinarily narrow and reductive way of looking at the world don't you?

I love how they manage to get the flags.  I think I'm going to set up a shop there selling just Western flags, I'd make a killing!

You're claiming that 'a few years ago' Lebanon was 95% Christian!? Wow. That's simply not true. Neither is the statistic that only 21% of Lebanon is Christian today.
