Fact sheet for Lebanese-Phoenicians
In a modern days we have learned to identify people by their country’s name and the passport they are holding. For example: you can’t call an Irish person British, because both speak English, you can’t call a Canadian an Australian or an American a South African, because they speak the same language, it is unaccepted in the public, media or in politics or in nature. You can’t call the horse a donkey even they look similar.
Why are the Lebanese-Phoenician very often labeled Arabs? Whether it is an ediction to the Arab oil cash money or doing Arabism a favor by swallowing the ancient minorities of the middle east, by using an anti-Lebanese policy in world media, politics and public. It is nothing but a modern mistake discriminating the ancient people who are the minorities in the region.
The fact is that in modern days the Lebanese-Phoenicians enjoy two memberships: with the Francophone and the Arab league for political and economical reasons, not by heritage, A lebanese-Phoenician is obligated to learn all subjects in French: Arabic history, geography, Arabic and English. Lebanese-Phoenician can’t be hired in the government if they dont speak french well and English is recommended, even documents in English or French are accepted. Despite the fact that the Lebanese-Phoenicians enjoy many sects, cultures and languages, for example: the Aramaic language is the Litrugical language for Christians, Armenians, and other minor languages. You can hear them very often in the streets.
The point here is: how can we fix an internationl error in politics and media enabling the public to have correct views and information?
The DNA research by national geographic has played a strong role in the fight for the original heritage of the Lebanese-Phoenician people of the east cost of the Mediterranean, from the land of the cedars. The statistic population in the world shows that 23% speak English, 12% speak French, 6% speak Spanish, 45% speak Portuguese, 12% speak Arabic, and 2% speak other languages. Almost 15 million Lebanese-Phoenicians live world wide.
The result is that Lebanese-Phoenicians are also qualified for commonwealth membership based on their english language statistics and are qualified for the European union membership based on the ancient Phoenician legend of princess europa. They accomplished much for society for example: in medicine, in music, in politics, in culture, in art, and in science. Lebanese-Phoenicians have proven no other identity but choose to carry on what their Phoenician ancestor did.
Support the Phoenician heritage and identity from the land of cedars.

The reality here is the Anti-Lebanese policy world-wide starting from Arabism ending with Zionism, both regimes are to blame for the unrest in the region including their Anti-Lebanese policy for many reasons, Europe and America welcomed this policy and it is very active in each US embassy and immigration across the globe dictated to many allies States as a result for their ediction to Arab oil and zionist cash.
US born childrens from Lebanese parents have been deported from US, Israel does the same in deporting none-jewish babies from Israel after DNA confirmation with no jewish blood. These are facts on ground and people need to know the truth of political slavery around the globe, if we really wants to be a model in fighting slavery, we have to start from political slavery for the ancient minority cultures abroad. This the best name for it a political slavery and you will be the first to hear this title. Political slavery and political privilege are to blame in this world, always the blame on Russia, China and US including their support the Arab regime and Zionist regime.

Kudos, I appreciate it!
