OMG how many times to i have to read this question!!????????
You know what,im going to answer this question,Lebanese who deny they are not arabs is becuz ppl outside from the Middle East assume Arabs are strict,not open minded and all the negative things u can think about,and according to Lebanese we are different than all the Arab countries surrounding us,we live in a free country with free choices!!
So i guess that is why Lebanese deny they are not arabs,am not saying i ever denied i wasn't one!
