  • Palestinian refugees seek basic rights in Lebanon

    Now why would a "refugee" have the "right" to own property in a country they have sought refuge in?

    Palestinian refugees seek basic rights in Lebanon

    "Working is a right," "We want to live in dignity," read placards carried by the protesters.

    "I have the right to own property," said another, summing up the frustration of the tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees who live in dire conditions in Lebanon.

    The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA) lists almost 400,000 Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, a country of four million inhabitants.

    But Lebanese and Palestinian officials say the actual number may be as low as 250,000 as UNRWA does not strike off its list those who move to other countries.

    The majority of UNRWA-registered refugees live in dire conditions in the camps across and are denied basic civil rights.

    Under Lebanese law, Palestinian refugees can not own property or hold most white collar jobs (doctors, engineers, lawyers, architects) and are stuck in low-paid employment.

    They are also denied social security and medical aid in state hospitals."

      Not really. Some have been living as "refugees" in other countries so long that generations of "Palestinians" have never even stepped foot on their "Homeland". Robert

        Again the great lie perped by the jhiddasts. Your right. They not only don't care; they merely want you too.

        And make then you; the bigger fool while simultaneously, surreptiously and fraudlently, laud you in public for your perhaps genuine concern.

        As they continue to use them as tools in the genocide vs the IG.

        You believe what you will but that's the reality of the Pali's.

          Seems like a "Catch-22" for them. You are either a Lebanese citizen or a "Palestinian refugee". You can't be both. Robert

            I would be interested in what "basic rights" Palestinian Refugees have in the other countries giving them shelter. Are there any left in Kuwait? How are things in Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia?

                    Seems to mention the Kurds quite a bit but does not address any "Palestinian refugees" though. Robert

                      Research it further. You will find if not at that link and it's one of the best; that the Pali's are considered the equivelent of the 'n-word' of Syria much like Kurds. And that's how the regime in Syria likes it.

                        I will look it up further of course. Sorry. I'm just confused how that web page the link takes you to has any information as to how the "Palestinian refugees" are treated in Syria as there is no mention of them at all. Robert

                            Socio-Economic Conditions of Palestinian Refugees in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon

                            "The socio-economic conditions of Palestinians in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon depend on various political and economic premises as well as on the 'imaginary ethnic environment' in each country. In Lebanon Palestinian refugees seem to be the worst affected. Being constantly denied any rights they are forced to struggle for life. International assistance is insufficient, and although effort is put into securing refugees' basic needs it does not change in a significant way their standard of living. In Syria, Palestinians enjoy almost the same rights, or rather their lack, as Syrian nationals. However, the conditions of the refugee camps do not seem to vary from those in Lebanon or Jordan. In the Hashemite Kingdom most of the Palestinians are granted Jordanian citizenship, but the economic crisis and widespread poverty do not allow the full enjoyment of all the rights. Palestinians seem to be sharing the effects of poverty along with Syrians and Jordanians, and are relegated to the 'third category' citizens in Lebanon. Only few of them, mainly representing middle and upper class, managed to assimilate themselves into the host countries' societies and can afford life on a decent standard comparable to the one they had before being forced to migrate. The misery of Palestinians in the region can be seen as an effect of discriminating legal norms, economic crises, political unrest and a low level of development in the host countries. "
