    Lebanon has nothing but benefited from the Armenian presence. It is the only group that has abstained from causing damage to the country. It has continuously supported the ideal of Lebanon being a place for coexistence among the numerous religious and ethnic groups. It has sought nothing but goodwill to their adoptive country.
