Leb n. 1. An abbreviated name used colloquially for people from Lebanon or of Lebanese extraction, 2. A derogatory name given to people of Lebanese extraction who are immigrants to or children of Lebanese immigrants in Australia and who conduct themselves in a manner conspicuously anti-social and who are commonly associated with bad taste. Broadly, they are people of Middle-Eastern appearance who usually have an Islamic upbringing, have a chip on their shoulder and who feel bigotry is their prerogative. Lebs usually conduct themselves in groups and work to intimidate others. In Australia, the term "Leb" connotes criminal, thief, geek, coward, racist, thug, one with a lack of culture, one with a lack of education, one who practices intimidation when in a group with other Lebs or with a weapon or when concealed, and someone who discriminates against Australians (non-Lebanese). The term "Leb" has been acquired as a descriptor by the broader community of people of Lebanese extraction and the like after a reputation was earned in the community, notably in Sydney, over a number of years as the sub-group became distinguished by gang-bashings, car-theft and car re-birthing, gun crime, and in particular gang rapes (See: Bilal Skaf) and the Revenge Attacks of December 2005 in connection with the Cronulla Riot. The announcement by the Head of Islam in Australia who led the Lebanese Muslim community that it was okay for Muslim men to rape non-Muslim women in his infamous "Catsmeat" sermon also did much to cement the perception that Lebs were a dysfunctional sub-group within the Australian multicultural mix.
