Lebanese Christians are NOT safe in Iran or any other predominantly Muslim country with the exception of Dubai, Qatar & Jordan!SO STAY AWAYFROM OTHER PLACES WHERE YOU ARE HATED BY YOUR RELIGION. Unfortunately, this world is no longer safe and people lost LOVE for one another. With as many problems Lebanon has, at least there are at least 14 religious denominations & political parties, so the Lebanese people are MORE tolerate of differences than others in the world. ITS ONLY FAULT IS CORRUPT POLITICIANS STEALING ALL THE COUNTRIES ASSETS. Coming soon,there will be a revolution where all these "famous" families will NEVER be respected again and when one hears their family name, "WE SPIT ON THE GROUND" with disgust for these dishonest thieves! They make us sick to our stomach...
