(ANS) – Lebanon ‘s Christians have been marginalised by a programme of Islamisation. This has included the pro-Syrian regime’s Naturalisation Decree of 1994 that naturalised hundreds of thousands of Syrians and Palestinians while disenfranchising the predominantly Christian diaspora. Now, at the insistence of the UN, the USA and France , Lebanon will go ahead with parliamentary elections commencing 29 May, despite Lebanon ‘s Christians being further marginalised by the unjust, discriminatory election law enacted by the pro-Syrian regime in 2000. This experiment in Christian-Muslim co-existence is yielding tragic results for Lebanon ‘s once prosperous Christians, and will continue to do so while these injustices remain.
