    Very interesting and still pertinent documentary/news report even today (8th May 2019, some 43 years after it first aired.).One gets the idea that no one knew what was really going on then….

    Can we just put all the uneducated, dictators and politicians on an isolated island and just leave Lebanon alone and have a peaceful and decent life for me and other people like me who just want education to evolve without politics and hatred.

    They used to call Lebanon east Swiss while other countries in the Middle East were far behind and I think they all contribute to the destruction of Lebanon for their own benefit.

    Reducing the Lebanese civil war as a “class struggle” (eg 6:00 etc)) or a battle between “the rich and the poor”, “left and right” is just plain 1970s Marxist rubbish. The commentator is obviously ideologically possessed.

    It all happened because of Palestinians. These traitors wanted to control beirut after we welcomed them. When do lebanese muslim and Christians will recognize that arab countries only care about their interests rather than lebanon. Palestinians deserve everything they're going thru

    Both my parents lived through the civil war, when I showed them this they said "Its not at all how it happened." Strange thing is they both said different things.

    9:19 sounds familiar….😶 14:07 your telling me that these young people are not being compensated in some way. These "students" are brain washed. Just makes no sense at all, they kinda even look high.

    18:00: "The land, the Palestinians believed to be theirs"
    Yes, Palestine is land of the Palestinians. From where have the Palestinians come? Have they fallen from heaven?
    There was no "israel" 70 years ago but the Arab population of the land was there before the Jewish settlers from Europe have arrived and before the British had occupied Palestine.

    If Christians were really persecuted in the Middle East then how can a small minority of rightist and fascist Christians massacre Muslims in Lebanon?

    We the Lebanese people have learnt from our past from our forefathers. we know what a civil war can do at the end no one wins both side loses the dead and the alive. Them days are over we are united and stronger then ever. Some times we get bored and we shoot each other but that’s just for fun other then that it’s nothing personal we love each other

    I lived in Wadi Abu Jamil just near the HoliDayAnn In the 1990. I use to go to HoliDayAnn And then next to it It was Burj Al Mor and down the Road it was the phonicean Hotel And the Saint George Beach and Swimming Pool. I Swim all the time On the Saint george Beach. I remeber the football Field Called Malaab al Kahoo. This was a very Damage Building and the War was brutual. Now i live in canada I left Beirut in the 1993 when i was 13 years old with my whole Family. I remember everything.

    Lebanon was wealthy from free enterprise, but since some people became more wealthy than others, the entire country had to be destroyed and everyone had to become destitute. Sounds like Marxists to me.

    Wherever Islam is allowed to flourish there are problems. At first they’re quiet but as their numbers grow so does their desire to expand all things Islamic. Then inevitably terrorism and war. It’s happens time and time again but the progressives still defend it, wrap them in a blanket of victimhood and encourage their numbers to grow.

    I could not forget how arrogant were the Lebanese guys whom I worked with in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They still hold on the idea that they have superior education than the rest of the Middle East and Asia. The other Lebanese guy had the gall to even ask me about the tech specs of the computer system that had been installed long before I came to take over as the system administrator. I just ignored him and in a short time, the French manager pushed them out of the company.

    Fun fact: Maronites used to be serfs owned by the wealthy land-owning minority we know as the Druze. During the Ottoman Era that is.

    Sorry Lebanese ,when Islam is in the equation,,the result is always disorder and regression,,,,the only order in Islam is when the equation is composed of an Islamic sect only…know the truth ,,don't be deceived by tolerance with Islam ,,cos it doesn't exit… Christian Lebanese always be vigilant,,and aggressive with them…cos it keeps them at Bay….

    I researched what led to the war and this is what I found

    The PLO moved its primary base of operations to Beirut in the early 1970s, after Black September in Jordan. The presence of Palestinian forces was one of the main reasons that led to a Christian-Muslim conflict in Lebanon in 1975–1976 which ended with the occupation of Lebanon by peace-keeping forces from several Arab countries[citation needed], including Syria. Over the next few years, the Syrians and the PLO gained power in Lebanon, surpassing the ability of the official Lebanese government to curtail or control their actions. Throughout this time, artillery and rocket attacks were launched against Israel. Israel bombed targets in Lebanon and in 1978 launched a military invasion in to Southern Lebanon codenamed "Operation Litani".

    In 1978, and again in 1981 and early 1982, the United Nations sponsored a cease-fire, and Israeli troops were withdrawn. In 1982 Israel re-invaded Lebanon following the attempted assassination of its ambassador in London, despite being aware that the attack had been carried out by the Abu Nidal faction, which was at war with Arafat's PLO. The architect of the war, Ariel Sharon (then Defense Minister), presented it to the Israeli government as a limited incursion into Southern Lebanon but took his troops to Beirut. The invasion was code-named "Operation Pines" or "Peace for Galilee", and was intended to weaken or evict the PLO and impose Bachir Gemayel, head of the Christian Phalange party, as President of Lebanon in order to get Lebanon to sign a peace treaty with Israel and bring the country into Israel's sphere of influence. This plan failed when Gemayel was assassinated not long after being elected President by the Lebanese parliament under Israeli pressure.

    The Israeli forces invaded in a three-pronged attack. One group moved along the coastal road to Beirut, another aimed at cutting the main Beirut-Damascus road, and the third moved up along the Lebanon-Syria border, hoping to block Syrian reinforcements or interference. By the 11th of June, Israel had gained air superiority after shooting down a number of Syrian aircraft; Syria called for a cease-fire, and the majority of PLO guerrillas fled Tyre, Sidon, and other areas for Beirut.
