Tyrians and Sidonians are the true Canaanites of Lebanon. They deserve your respect.

No they arent primesuspect. Tyre residents are mostly not from there originally, they settled there quite recently if we look at it history wise, most of its shiite residents are of iraqi origin who settled first in syria and then lebanon in tyre and nabatiyeh . Saida residents are likewise of syrian, arab, kurdish and other such origins. The hariri family as an example are originally from the arab penninsula and have nothing to do with cananites.

False. Those studies simply claim that SOME lebanese have SOME phoenician DNA, its not a pure phoenician bloodline, and the same results can be found among other middle eastern and african people. The phoenicians settled in the levant, north africa, ethiopia, etc and intermixed with other people to the point of no longer existing as an ethnic group or people, not even thousands of years ago were they a group, the cananites simply had diffirent names of its people based on what occupation they had. So to claim sidonians or anyone else are canaanites or phoenician is simply stupid. Check the origins of the families in lebabon and you will find the vast majority came and settled from other places. Jumblats family is of kurdish origin.
