    Background: Life in Beirut is beginning to get back to normal. On September 30, Lebanon's new President Amin Gemayel officially declared that the capital was once again unified. He was speaking at a ceremony held to mark the re-opening of all crossing points between Christian and Moslem districts. The city's International airport, now cleared of Israeli troops, is once again open to commercial travel. After the first ceremony, held at the Museum checkpoint dividing until recently East and West Beirut, President Gemayel and his military escort of Lebanese and multinational forces took part in another ceremony, held at the airport. President Gemayel personally welcomed the pilot and co-pilot of the first international passenger jet of the Lebanese base Middle East Airlines to land in Beirut since the beginning of June. Mr. Admin Gemayel's determination to unify Lebanon is being backed by most of Lebanon's left-wing Moslem leaders, who see the new President as a moderate man. He was the first leader of the right-wing Christian falange party to start talks with the Palestinians in 1973.
