Thoughts on Lebanese identity (1)
Posted by worriedlebanese on 07/10/2006
I have an article to write on the debate over the lebanese identity. What more is there to say about it? Should I present the debate between lebanese nationalists and arab nationalists? Should I dwelve on the meaning of ‘being arab’ and the Lebanese constitution’s stand on identity? What about the other identities? the communal ones?
I’ve been going through texts written by Sélim Abou and Ahmad Baydoun over this question. And I’m thinking of quoting Amin Maalouf and Samir Kassir… Two weeks left to hand in the article.
