What happened to Lebanon?

Lebanon was once a haven of peace and prosperity in the Middle East. It was created after the First World War, effectively as a Christian state, as it was that part of Syria which had a majority of Maronite Christians. As the Muslim minority grew, the religious balance changed, leading to a struggle for power which culminated in the civil war of 1975, after which it became another failed Muslim state.

And now nobody wants to stay in Lebanon. The difficulty is that these people bring their problems with them when they go somewhere else, because however good they are individually, their culture, attitudes and conduct are shaped by Islam.
