EDIT: SORRY FOR HIJACKING THE THREAD MATE
Lebanon had the Romans, Crusaders, Abbasids, Phonecians, just to name a few in the area. Many of these empires also expanded to area's such as Greece and Cyprus. Lebanon and Syria are also very similar because until very recently they were one area called "Bilad al-Sham". The creation of the modern borders in lebanon was an act of the French Imperial authority. So what im trying to say is yeah, we got some similarities
