Worried Lebanese

Lebanese in Israel

Posted by worriedlebanese on 11/01/2007

southlebaneseinisrael.jpgThe Nahar published an article today on the Lebanese refugees in Israel based on an interview made with Maronite Bishop in Israel, Father Paul Nabil Sayah.

The article isn’t of much interest because it’s based on a very small number of background information and even less information given by Father Sayah. The central argument is that the Lebanese polticians are not working properly on solving the problem of Lebanese refugees in Israel.

The most striking element I found in the article is that it claims that only 60% of the refugees are Christians. This is an interesting figure. In other words, 40% of them are Sunni or Shiite Muslims or Druze. But why is it then that only Christian parties speak of those Lebanese refugees?

Another interesting fact is that the article speaks of a humanitarian crisis but is never really convincing on this point. The fact is that these families are actually political refugees. Most of them will not be convicted for war crimes, but for allying themselves with Israel. Their “crime” is a political one.

A quick search on the net shows that several parties are interested in these refugees, mainly the LSA, the FPM, and the Lebanese Forces.
