A lebanese person originates from the state of Lebanon. Although of Arabic character, the lebanese people have been largely influenced by european culture as Lebanon was once a colony of France. The lebanese people are diverse in religions and cultures, making up of various christian and islamic strands, its plurality makes it a very unique country of the middle east. The lebanese people are a peaceful people, but foreign intervention by the Arab Israeli conflict was one of the leading causes of the civil war between various christian and muslim militias. This steretype of lebanese as violent is a result of the media's attention on lebanese gangs and crimes commited by lebanese people. This stereotype is far from the truth!
What many people do not understand is that Lebanese people have made a huge impact worldwide. A list of renowned lebanese people include:
- Ralph Nader (ran for president of the USA, consumer rights advocate)
- Carlos Helu (Third richest man in the world)
- Shakira ( Singer, Half lebanese half latino)
- Steve Bracks (premier of victoria)
- Marie Bashir (governor general of New South wales)
- Joe Hashim (World Poker Champion)

People who originate from the country of Lebanon. Very giving and generous people. Often times when you come into their houses, they'll invite you to eat and drink something with them. They're usually found smoking the hookah and playing "tawleh" ('Table') in lebanese. They have a lot of pride in their country and in their culture. Many people assume that lebanese people are stuckup and think highly of themselves, which infact is NOT true. They're very kind people who are just infatuated with their country - nothing wrong with that! Overall, they stick together because 1 out of 10 times they're scapegoated and called "terrorist!" and other racial slurs. My opinion, don't judge them 'til you've befriended them for yourself!
Random person: *knocks at door*
Lebanese person: Hello! come in come in! come drink some coffee! Ahla w. sahla feek! I'll read your cup!

A group of people who originate from the eastern Mediterranean country of Lebanon, which constitutes part of the Levant. The majority of Lebanese are of Phoenician heritage. The Phoenician ancestors of the Lebanese are also the prominent genotype of a large portion of the Mediterranean basin including large portions of Italy, Greece, Malta extending all the way to Cornwall in Wales (UK).

There are 19 different religious sects in Lebanon, a country of less than 4 million. Physically, Lebanese tend to be fair skinned, with either brown, green or blue eyes and dark brown, brown, sandy, or red hair. Blond blue-eyed Lebanese comprise approximately 10-15% of the population as many Lebanese carry characteristics of Crusader invaders from Northern and Central Europe.

There are 4 times as many Lebanese outside of Lebanon as there are in the country itself. Nine million reside in Brazil alone and this diaspora constitutes 25% of Brazil's parliament.

The Lebanese diaspora has been immensely successful in politics, business, entertainment and academia (with several Nobel Laureates of Lebanese Background). Some of the wealthiest men/families in the world are of Lebanese Ancestry.
That guy must be awesome because he's Lebanese.

What is the truth about the Lebanese? Are they really obsessed about money and sex? Well, yes most of them are. All the Lebanese that I have met think constantly about money and sex. Lebanese people are generally good looking, clean, and have a good ability to adapt. In general, Lebanese people are superior in education and intelligence to the rest of the Arabs; this is due to Lebanon's geographical location on the Mediterranean Sea and its history as a country of connection between the West and the East. This connection has brought openness and prosperity but also wars and destruction as the Lebanese people have never agreed on whether Lebanon should be of European character or of Arab Islamic character. Unlike any of its neighbours, Lebanon enjoys a mild climate and a green mountainous landscape. The Lebanese are 60% Muslim and 40% Christian. Lebanese people can be divided into 2 categories:
1.Lebanese living in Lebanon, 2.Lebanese living abroad in diaspora.
What is it with the Lebanese and their muscle cars?
