CHRISTIAN VICTORY IN LEBANON'S ELECTION A SURPRISING MYSTERY 06/09/2009


By Moody Adams
“The outcome of this Sunday's legislative elections in Lebanon is both a certainty and a mystery. On the one hand, the main Sunni, Shiite and Druze parties are sure to win big in their regional strongholds” writes the World Politics Review. “But the Christian vote is very much in play.”

Lebanon’s Maronite Christians, who once dominated the country, hold the key to the nation’s election.

The election has put the Maronites back in the spotlight and handed a surprising defeat to the Muslim extremists.

This brings us to wonder if Iranian president Ahmandinejad could be defeated in his election Friday? He has a strong opponent.
