Lebanese Journalist Charles Ayoub: Lebanon Is an Artificial Country, Which Must Be Partitioned

Following are excerpts from an interview with Charles Ayoub, editor of the Lebanese Al-Diyar daily, which aired on Murr TV on June 24, 2013.

Charles Ayoub: There is no such thing as a Lebanese entity or a Lebanese homeland. The best thing we could do would be to partition [Lebanon]: the Shiites in South Lebanon and the Beqa' Valley, the Sunnis in the cities of Tripoli, Beirut, and Sidon, and the Christians along with the Druze.


I do not believe in the Lebanese homeland. In my view, Lebanon is an artificial country, which cannot continue to exist and must be partitioned.
