Reviews

Mr. Moumneh's work is a long overdue analysis of the complex forces at work within the Christian resistance, their genesis in the ancient and indigenous people of the land, and their desire to maintain their existence in their small and threatened region while facing malign forces bent on their destruction. This comprehensive and exhaustively researched chronicle by Mr. Moumneh does not fail to point out the many missteps, mistakes, and failures of the Lebanese Forces and their leaders as well as their victories. Those who consider themselves well versed on the topic and history of modern Lebanon will learn a great deal reading this book. Both the expert and layman will find this masterpiece of Lebanese history exquisitely researched and documented. -- John Hajjar, Director of the US Council of the Cedars Revolution
Mr. Moumneh is not only the pioneer in unfolding and discovering the catalyst of what is now known as United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1559; he is also the curator and guardian of the realities of Lebanon's history that often get buried or, even worse, misconstrued. Moumneh's fervent research and diligent attention to detail regarding why and how UNSCR 1559 was formed, and the affirmative votes that instituted the revolutionary resolution, is what makes this book a must-read for all. The foundation for the free and fair electoral process within Lebanon and ultimately the country's sovereignty directly derive from the French- and American-backed resolution. Moumneh unveils why these outcomes were critical and how they became a reality. -- Tom Harb, Secretary General of the International Lebanese Committee for UNSCR 1559
Nader Moumneh provides an extensive analysis of Lebanese political party backgrounds, their absolute need to be affiliated to foreign powers, and their willingness to change allegiances in a never-ending quest for relevancy. The book is an exciting read with vivid displays of a frail and tenuous balance that is Lebanese politics and details the attempts by some to maintain the forward development of this precious and loveable nation of Lebanon. A nation beset by terrorism, assassinations, murder, destruction, and secret manipulation of national and international authorities alike, inside the government of Lebanon lies a fertile bed where corruption breeds and festers, dismantling an otherwise harmonious and pluralist society. The Lebanese diaspora masterminded United Nations Security Council Resolution 1559 through their endeavours with the World Lebanese Cultural Union and the World Council of the Cedars Revolution. The net result was awareness and actions by powerful Western bloc nations as well as other UN Security Council members to remove the Syrian occupation of Lebanon and remove terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah. The success and effectiveness of a determined Lebanese Diaspora has been absolutely remarkable. I commend this book as a most enriching and captivating read to every loyal Lebanese throughout the world. -- Joseph P. Baini, president (since 2005) of the World Council of the Cedars Revolution and former president (2003-2005) of the World Lebanese Cultural Union
