  Lebanon
      n 1: an Asian republic at east end of Mediterranean [syn:
           Lebanon, Lebanese Republic]

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Lebanon
     white, "the white mountain of Syria," is the loftiest and most
     celebrated mountain range in Syria. It is a branch running
     southward from the Caucasus, and at its lower end forking into
     two parallel ranges, the eastern or Anti-Lebanon, and the
     western or Lebanon proper. They enclose a long valley (Josh.
     11:17) of from 5 to 8 miles in width, called by Roman writers
     Coele-Syria, now called el-Buka'a, "the valley," a prolongation
     of the valley of the Jordan.
     
       Lebanon proper, Jebel es-Sharki, commences at its southern
     extremity in the gorge of the Leontes, the ancient Litany, and
     extends north-east, parallel to the Mediterranean coast, as far
     as the river Eleutherus, at the plain of Emesa, "the entering of
     Hamath" (Num. 34:8; 1 Kings 8:65), in all about 90 geographical
     miles in extent. The average height of this range is from 6,000
     to 8,000 feet; the peak of Jebel Mukhmel is about 10,200 feet,
     and the Sannin about 9,000. The highest peaks are covered with
     perpetual snow and ice. In the recesses of the range wild beasts
     as of old still abound (2 Kings 14:9; Cant. 4:8). The scenes of
     the Lebanon are remarkable for their grandeur and beauty, and
     supplied the sacred writers with many expressive similes (Ps.
     29:5, 6; 72:16; 104:16-18; Cant. 4:15; Isa. 2:13; 35:2; 60:13;
     Hos. 14:5). It is famous for its cedars (Cant. 5:15), its wines
     (Hos. 14:7), and its cool waters (Jer. 18:14). The ancient
     inhabitants were Giblites and Hivites (Josh. 13:5; Judg. 3:3).
     It was part of the Phoenician kingdom (1 Kings 5:2-6).
     
       The eastern range, or Anti-Lebanon, or "Lebanon towards the
     sunrising," runs nearly parallel with the western from the plain
     of Emesa till it connects with the hills of Galilee in the
     south. The height of this range is about 5,000 feet. Its highest
     peak is Hermon (q.v.), from which a number of lesser ranges
     radiate.
     
       Lebanon is first mentioned in the description of the boundary
     of Palestine (Deut. 1:7; 11:24). It was assigned to Israel, but
     was never conquered (Josh. 13:2-6; Judg. 3:1-3).
     
       The Lebanon range is now inhabited by a population of about
     300,000 Christians, Maronites, and Druses, and is ruled by a
     Christian governor. The Anti-Lebanon is inhabited by
     Mohammedans, and is under a Turkish ruler.

     Introduction Lebanon
     --------------------
                              Background: Lebanon has made progress toward
                                          rebuilding its political
                                          institutions since 1991 and the end
                                          of the devastating 16-year civil
                                          war. Under the Ta'if Accord - the
                                          blueprint for national
                                          reconciliation - the Lebanese have
                                          established a more equitable
                                          political system, particularly by
                                          giving Muslims a greater say in the
                                          political process while
                                          institutionalizing sectarian
                                          divisions in the government. Since
                                          the end of the war, the Lebanese
                                          have conducted several successful
                                          elections, most of the militias have
                                          been weakened or disbanded, and the
                                          Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) have
                                          extended central government
                                          authority over about two-thirds of
                                          the country. Hizballah, the radical
                                          Shi'a party, retains its weapons.
                                          Syria maintains about 20,000 troops
                                          in Lebanon based mainly in Beirut,
                                          North Lebanon, and the Bekaa Valley.
                                          Syria's troop deployment was
                                          legitimized by the Arab League
                                          during Lebanon's civil war and in
                                          the Ta'if Accord. Damascus justifies
                                          its continued military presence in
                                          Lebanon by citing Beirut's requests
                                          and the failure of the Lebanese
                                          Government to implement all of the
                                          constitutional reforms in the Ta'if
                                          Accord. Israel's withdrawal from its
                                          security zone in southern Lebanon in
                                          May of 2000, however, has emboldened
                                          some Lebanese Christians and Druze
                                          to demand that Syria withdraw its
                                          forces as well.

     ---------------
                      Economy - overview: The 1975-91 civil war seriously
                                          damaged Lebanon's economic
                                          infrastructure, cut national output
                                          by half, and all but ended Lebanon's
                                          position as a Middle Eastern
                                          entrepot and banking hub. Peace
                                          enabled the central government to
                                          restore control in Beirut, begin
                                          collecting taxes, and regain access
                                          to key port and government
                                          facilities. Economic recovery was
                                          helped by a financially sound
                                          banking system and resilient small-
                                          and medium-scale manufacturers.
                                          Family remittances, banking
                                          services, manufactured and farm
                                          exports, and international aid
                                          provided the main sources of foreign
                                          exchange. Lebanon's economy made
                                          impressive gains since the launch in
                                          1993 of "Horizon 2000," the
                                          government's $20 billion
                                          reconstruction program. Real GDP
                                          grew 8% in 1994, 7% in 1995, 4% in
                                          1996 and in 1997 but slowed to 2% in
                                          1998, -1% in 1999, and -0.5% in
                                          2000. Growth recovered slightly in
                                          2001 to 1%. During the 1990s annual
                                          inflation fell to almost 0% from
                                          more than 100%. Lebanon has rebuilt
                                          much of its war-torn physical and
                                          financial infrastructure. The
                                          government nonetheless faces serious
                                          challenges in the economic arena. It
                                          has funded reconstruction by
                                          borrowing heavily - mostly from
                                          domestic banks. The re-installed
                                          HARIRI government has failed to rein
                                          in the ballooning national debt.
                                          Without large-scale international
                                          aid and rapid privatization of
                                          state-owned enterprises, markets may
                                          force a currency devaluation and
                                          debt default in 2002.
