DNA analysis establishes modern-day Lebanese to be ancient Canaanites
Very interesting OP.
I've read a bit about this before.
Yes, a good proportion of Lebanese consider themselves of Canaanite or 'Phoenician' heritage, not Arab.
Others consider themselves Arab. There is apparently a national debate about this, according to what I remember reading.
Lebanese are certainly culturally and linguistically Arab, having been conquered by Arab Muslim hordes centuries ago.
I wonder how many Canaanite descendants still live in the city of Tyre, Lebanon?
I knew it! I knew it! I knew it when I saw the way those hips moved! Hips don't lie - Shakira is part Canaanite!
