Liban II.

This is coolbert:


Some will suggest that Lebanon will be an instance of ISIL "over reach".

"Is Lebanon next on Isis hit list?"

"News that jihadists from the Islamic State (IS) had declared the creation of a 'caliphate' last month initially sent Lebanon's social media networks into a frenzy of puns and jokes depicting them as backward, bloodthirsty bearded men.

"But soon, worry replaced laughter. After months of relative calm, Lebanon was hit again by a series of attacks accompanied by a slew of arrests of suspected suicide bombers."

"A general belief is starting to grow that the IS, the precursor to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (Isis), stands behind the renewed instability in the country."

A significant portion of that population of Lebanon [Liban] Shia. Amal, Hezbollah, etc. Militia groups that will come to terms with ISIL, the outcome uncertain. Prepare for the worst.
