The Ottoman garrison commander again offered the Maronite population asylum, as he had offered to the small villages, asking for the surrender of their arms and then slaughtering them.   In this impressive synthesis, William Harris narrates the history of the sectarian communities of Mount Lebanon and its vicinity. He offers a fresh perspective on the antecedents of modern multi-communal Lebanon, tracing the consolidation of Lebanon's Christian, Muslim, and Islamic derived sects from their origins between the sixth and eleventh centuries/5(4). Lebanese Muslims of all denominations represent a majority within Lebanon, but add up to only a large minority of all Lebanese worldwide.

In Lebanon, the Druze quasi-Muslim sect is officially categorized as a Muslim denomination by the Lebanese government.   The Druze represent a small and distinct religious community, with members mainly in Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Jordan (small communities of immigrants also exist, notably in the US, Canada, Latin America, Australia, and Europe). Most Druzes speak Arabic, but fundamentally different from other Arabs and Muslims, even though sometimes their leadership claim the contrary for political reasons.
