#2 Poor Lebanon, the ugly step-sister of the 1920 Franco-British division of the old Ottoman Empire. It was supposed to be a Christian state, a place where all Christians in the Middle East could congregate and escape persecution, just as Palestine was supposed to be a Jewish homeland. The Arabs (encouraged by both French and British anti-semites in their respective Foreign Offices) have been fighting to destroy both nations ever since. They've virtually succeeded in Lebanon. Only Israeli military might and will to fight has kept them from succeeding there.

Neither the French nor the British have clean hands, but only the British are willing to step up and help clean up the mess their earlier meddling caused. The world would be a better place by far if the rest of the world would totally isolate France until that nation grew up a bit.
