Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

How will I find you? You wouldn't reside in the Kibbutz named Inbar by any chance? Only ten people live there, according to Wikipedia - smallest in the country. So I guess the odds are against it...

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

November 22:

Lebanon: (1943)



General Henri Dentz, the Vichy High Commissioner for Syria and Lebanon, played a major role in the independence of the nation. The Vichy authorities in 1941 allowed Germany to move aircraft and supplies through Syria to Iraq where they were used against British forces. The United Kingdom, fearing that Nazi Germany would gain full control of Lebanon and Syria by pressure on the weak Vichy government, sent its army into Syria and Lebanon. After the fighting ended in Lebanon, General Charles de Gaulle visited the area. Under political pressure from both inside and outside Lebanon, de Gaulle recognized the independence of Lebanon. On 26 November 1941 General Georges Catroux announced that Lebanon would become independent under the authority of the Free French government. Elections were held in 1943 and on 8 November 1943 the new Lebanese government unilaterally abolished the mandate. The French reacted by throwing the new government into prison. In the face of international pressure, the French released the government officials on 22 November 1943 and recognized the independence of Lebanon.

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

Lebanon

Unlike most countries in the Middle East, Lebanon does not have desert and there is no shortage of water. The two largest rivers are the Litani flowing from east to west into the Mediterranean Sea, and Haorontos flows from south to north to Syria and into Turkey. In addition to them, water springs (especially the western slopes of the Lebanon mountain range)theres seasonal flow of rivers who make Lebanon a country relatively rich in water - a rare feature in the area.

The white color of the Lebanon Mountains was the inspiration for the name of the state.
Lebanon has extensive and rich natural forests, mainly of oak and pine. The cedar tree trees who covered the area of Lebanon became the national symbol, perched on the flag, and they were behind the nickname attached to it, "Land of the Cedars."
