You might want to take a look at Jonathan Edelstein's five-part study of Lebanese politics, which is bewilderingly complex.
His scholarly and measured investigation takes him and anyone who wants to follow along into a truly fine analysis.
When I first saw the word "consociational" I thought it was a typographical error. Turns out it is a conceptual formulation of constitutional government we didn't study when I was in school. Lebanon is a contemporary example of the model.

Across the Bay is another blog that approves of Edelstein's take. His post from last Friday is worth a look.

Thanks for your comment. You'll notice that both the Head Heeb and Tony Badran are on my Lebanon roundup links to the right, with Jonathan's Lebanon series specifically referenced.

Take care, and thanks for dropping by!
