Select the Lebanese personality (dead or alive) you can be proud of

Don’t let anyone tell you there’s nothing to celebrate this Independence Day in Lebanon!

We may not have a president, or a functioning government – but when have those ever been what made Lebanon great?

We give you 72 Lebanese people who make us proud – with compatriots like this, who needs a president?

(Add to the list other personalities and leaders who made us proud)

Some of these are the legends we grew up admiring, some are relatively unsung heroes, and some are legends in the making.

But they all share one thing: They show the strength of the Lebanese spirit, and that’s something worth celebrating this Independence Day

 I also like Antoun Saadeh, founder of the first secular political party in Lebanon in 1933, during the French mandate. He was summarily executed for insisting on the strategic value of our oil and the threat of the nascent Zionist movement, and the strategic danger of expansionist Turkey
