A National Covenant was
formed in 1943 which determined that the President of Lebanon would always be a Marionite
Christian, while the Prime Minister would be a Sunni Muslim. Under this covenant Lebanon had

& opposed to the control granted to the
Christians through the covenant. War pursued
involving other nations including Syria and Israel. MORE!
