Agreement on a  document  was facilitated by the leadership of the Foundation.  This statement was the culmination of discussions and coordination among all the Christian leadership of Lebanon (Former President Amin Gemayel, President of the Ahrar, Dory Chamoun, and representatives of the Lebanese Forces and General Aoun). This document was presented to U.S. congressmen, the media and the public at a meeting in Washington, D.C., at the Capitol.  We believe this project helps promote unity among all Lebanese, especially the Maronites, and is a fitting example of the work we are meant to do,


A meeting was held in Washington, D.C., in the Dirksen Senate Building on Capitol Hill.  In attendance were leaders of the Christian leadership in Lebanon and their representatives.
     Amin Gemayel, Former President of Lebanon
     Dory Chamoun, President of the Ahrar
     Dr. Joseph Jebailly, Policy Council, Lebanese Forces
     Mr. Toufic Soyad, Kataeb
     Mr. Milad Zohrab, Ahrar Abroad
and representatives of other parties.  Also in attendance was Member of the Federal Canadian Parliament, Mr. Mark Assad. The group adopted by concensus the attached document, and pledged to work together to develop a declaration of human rights for Lebanon.  This was such a historic occasion in that it is the first time that a document of principle, based on a desirable end-state for Lebanon was agreed upon without negative attacks on any persons, countries or parties.  It prescribed the ideal condition for a future Lebanon.  All parties have pledged to work toward this end-state, and support all who would help make this end-state reality.
