Example text

The Government: l  Gained independence: November 22, 1943.  Form of government: Republic. Members of the 128-seat, single-house National Assembly elect the president, who appoints a prime minister and deputy prime minister. By an agreement called the National Pact of 1943, the president is always a Maronite Christian, the prime minister a Sunni Muslim, and the speaker of the legislature a Shiite Muslim.  Head of state: President Emile Lahud, since 1998.  Legal system: Based on a mixture of Ottoman law, canon law, Napoleonic code, and civil law.

Islam: The religious faith followed by Muslims based on a belief in Allah as the sole God and in Muhammad as his prophet. Islamic Fundamentalism: See Islamism. Islamism: The ideology that a conservative interpretation of the Islamic faith, including the rule of Sharia, should provide the basis for the political, social, and cultural life in every Muslim nation. J Jerusalem: The capital of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah; home of holy sites for Christian, Jewish, and Muslim religions. It was divided in 1948 with separate sections ruled by Jordan and Israel until 1967.

To Muslims, Muhammad is the true prophet, whose role was to perfect the religion; to Christians, Jesus, as the son of God, is the most important prophet; to Jews, all the prophets played their own important role, with none being more important than any other. The religions also differ on other issues, but on key issues there is more on which they agree than disagree. People of all three faiths hope that this core of agreement can help advance the cause of peace in the world. ’’ For many years only the trade routes were of any interest in this very loosely governed and sparsely populated region.
