French Embassy Warning Map: Throwback to the Good Old Mandate Days!
One of the most striking things about this map by the French embassy is that is almost mirrors what the French government (supposedly) tried to counsel the Lebanese Maronites on almost a hundred years ago: take your state in MT Lebanon. One version of this story is that the Maronites resisted and convinced the French authorities to include the heavily muslim areas that became greater lebanon, now seen in red…. What to make of that?!
