The problem with this idea is that when a government imposes rules which suit the majority population, or the dominant population, the remainder have no loyalty to their country. This appears to have been very much the case with Sudan.
How comfortable would you feel living in Lebanon if all positions in government were occupied by Muslims, and they imposed Sharia Law on the entire population, Muslim or not?
yes I agree that they will not feel loyal to their country and will feel marginalized, and sometimes the hange is very difficult if one wants to change the regime to be fair. I , for one, thaught about separation after the July war. But then, policy has proved conclusively that it is not stable andchanges come about every now and then, so it is not worth it to loose our country. We can work for change and beleive in it. Sadly, it all depends on regional policies and the help of the outside countries who have their interests. Here they proved that they are all tools for the outside countries, but the people still want change and hope for it rather than think about separation. They think of it like that; you have a brother who is handicapped and doesn't understand anything and is a burden, but you have to live with him no matter what. They put behind the separationist ideas because they are impossible. Of course there is always the fear that outside countries might have the interests again to split he country. They will surely promise their tools interests. So this answers the question that there are no serious splits without powers, and these powers of money and weapons are given from the powerful.
So the problems are there and people might want separation [here it became a taboo] , but unless they get help they will not do it and will try the 'right way' of trying to change thier country without loosing it. I can't , for example, imagine that I will only live in the Shouf and be forbidden to visit the North, Bekaa and South without a passport. I have stuck in mind that Baalbak's temple is one of the symbols of Lebanon same as the Cedars. I don't want to loose these if Hizbollah or or other parties are wackos.
