Why is Lebanon the only Arab Christian country ?

The President is always Christian also. Should other Arab countries become like Lebanon ? Plus they are very "European".

    Lebanon is the Arab state with the highest percentage of Christians, and the Lebanese political system requires that the President be a Maronite Christian. Egypt also has a large percentage of Christians. but no specifications about the political system.

    Lebanon's unwritten National Pact of 1943 required that its president be Maronite Christian, its speaker of the parliament to be a Shiite Muslim, its prime minister be Sunni Muslim, and the deputy speaker of Parliament and the deputy prime minister be Greek Orthodox.

    Lebanon is not an Islamic country either, there are both christians and muslims from several different sects.

    Lebanon was a former Frech colony/mandate.
