race well we cant tell....
we are really a mix Phoenicians, greeks, romans, Arabs, persians and so on.
If you visited Beirut one day (Which i hope you will), you will see that there are very fair lebanese with blond hair/ blue eyes and very dark/tanned lebanese with black eyes and hair.
However NOW we speak Arabic as our first language, Arabic is the official language and we are part of the Arab league. So yes we are considered Arabs.
