I think one thing is for sure about what is Lebanese. And that is having a direct connection with the space that is within the borders of the modern Lebanese nation-state. We are a people of mostly Phoenician descent, as well. Who are the Phonecians? Wiki-IT and find out if you're unfamiliar. I would like to write an essay for you, but I only have a quick second this moment. So, let this be an open thread for what it is to be Lebanese. I could say much more, but unfortunately I haven't got the time now!
