What is topography in Lebanon?

This is more of a little topography with reasoning of how it helps Lebanon and how it's used:

Lebanon has many plains, where farmers plant. Heavy downpour in Mount Lebanon of winter rains has formed many deep clefts and valleys in the soft rock. The terrain has profoundly affected the country's history. East of the Mount Lebanon Range is the Bekaa Valley, an extremely fertile flatland where farmers have learned that the soil is fertile and that the plants could grow large with flat land and lots of space to grow in. Lebanon contains few rivers, and its harbors are mostly shallow and small. Abundant springs, found to a height of 1,500 m (4,900 ft) on the western slopes of the Lebanon Mountains, provide water for cultivation up to this height. Such rivers as Nahr Abou Ali, Nahr Ibrahim, Nahr el Kelb, Nahr Beirut, Nahr ed Dam our, etc. flow into Mediterranean, forming deep ravines. The coastal plain along the Mediterranean is narrow, and is found only around such cities as Tripoli, Beirut, Saida, Tyre, etc.

War and Military History
History of the Middle East

What are the causes of the Lebanese Civil War?

Answer 1

The Palestinians caused problems in Israel, so they were kicked out and they fled to Jordan. The Palestinians caused problems in Jordan, so King Hussein launched Black September and killed anywhere from 8 to 15,000 Palestinians in one month. The Palestinians then fled to Lebanon which caused the civil war that resulted in about 500,000 deaths. so many in fact that the Lebanese government didn't even bother to investigate the "mere 3,000" killed at Sabra and Shatilla by Lebanese Roman Catholics.

Answer 2

The main cause of the Lebanese Civil War was that the fragile balance between the Maronite Christians, Sunni Arabs, and Shiite Arabs was in a precarious position and the arrival of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in Lebanon threatened to tip the scales. As a result, each faction took to battle in order to increase their stake in the country's leadership. This conflict eventually spilled over into Israel and Syria, leading to those countries ending the War.

Answer 3

The causes of the Lebanese Civil War included, but were not limited to:

  1. The rising percentage of Shiite Muslims and sinking percentage of Maronite Christians and the Shiites wanting more power.
  2. The arrival of Palestinian Militant Organizations like the PLO fleeing Jordan after King Hussein's Black September who brought unrest and chaos with them.
  3. The languishing, horrible conditions of the vast numbers of Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon.
  4. The increasing militancy and radicalization of the Maronite Christian minority.
  5. The increasing Syrian support of Shiite Paramilitary Groups

Israel entered the Lebanese Civil War on account of the following two reasons:

  1. Palestinian Paramilitary Organizations began to rain rockets down on Northern Israel in an attempt to goad Israel to enter the Lebanese Civil War. The PLO believed that such an entry would unite the Shiites and Sunnis behind one banner to repel the Israelis. The Union did not form, but Israel did retaliate by crossing the border and hunting down the PLO.
  2. Christian Falangists, with whom Israel quickly allied, promised Israel a longer term ceasefire and more amicable relations in the future. Israel wanted a chance at peace with Lebanon and therefore supported those who would advocate for this.

Why does Lebanon hate Syria?

Many Lebanese Christians and Sunnis hate Syria because of what the Syrian rule of the last 40 years has done to Lebanon. The Syrian government meddle in Lebanese affairs and have never respected the independence and sovereignty of Lebanon and have always had a great influence over Lebanon. Many Sunnis and Christians want Lebanon to be an independent state, and are supporters of Lebanese nationalism. Syria has never accepted this and the Lebanese have never been fond of them for this.
