Syrian opposition calls some Lebanese racist over handling of refugees

Share:

syrian refugees where they areThe Syrian National Coalition demanded on Thursday putting an end to the “racist practices” against Syria’s refugees in Lebanon.

“We call for putting an end to the racist practices, discrimination, oppression and even physical attacks of some Lebanese religious communities against Syrian refugees,” SNC said in a released statement.

The statement called on the international community “to provide the largest possible support to Lebanese authorities, to enable them to deal with the huge numbers of refugees that were forced to flee their houses, escaping the criminality of (Syrian President Bashar) Assad.”

The SNC lauded a solidarity campaign against racism launched by Lebanese activists on social media websites to “highlight the difficult conditions Syrian refugees are going through in Lebanon.”

The statement was referring to a popular campaign launched as a response to a press conference by former telecommunications minister Nicolas Sehnaoui and Free Patriotic Movement official Ziad Abs, during which the two men called for protecting citizens in the Beirut neighborhood of Ashrafieh, after the increase in the number of refugees.

The two FPM officials also called for closing the border with Syria “because Lebanon can not bear receiving more refugees.”

SNC’s statement also pointed out to the growing “phenomenon of refugee suicide, through which Syrians aim at escaping their difficult conditions.”

“This is a very dangerous phenomenon that should not be overlooked,” the coalition stressed. “Their life conditions were worse than death, and that’s what drove them to commit suicide.”

The UNHCR announced on Thursday that the number of Syrian refugees who have fled their war-torn country and came to Lebanon has reached 1 million.

According to the UNHCR, refugees from Syria, half of them children, now equal a quarter of Lebanon’s resident population, warning that most of them live in poverty and depend on aid for survival.

    We’ve always been racist you fools, but we don’t harm no one we actually enjoy their existence keeps us from directing our humour/insults towards each other. Syrians have always been the butt if our jokes, it’s not the refugees it’s syria as a whole especially the Hafez clan.

        The point is that Israel and and its neighbors are not filthy rich like those Saudi/Qatari scum that start a war then spend time buying streets in Paris and talk about who has the tallest buildings

          Oh now u claim israhell isn’t rich. But previously u have claimed israhell’s GDP is extremely high and that it didn’t really need ALL that foreign aid. Lmfao. U obviously have a problem with honesty, just like most israhellis.

            “Over the last 20 years, the U.S. has been slowly phasing out economic
            aid to Israel and gradually replacing it with increased military aid.
            Beginning in 2007, the U.S. has increased military aid by $150 million
            each year. Beginning 2012, we will be sending Israel $3.1 billion a year
            (or an average of $8.5 million a day) and will continue to provide
            military aid at that level through 2018. U.S. tax dollars are
            subsidizing one of the most powerful foreign militaries. According to
            the CRS report, “[current U.S. military aid] grants to Israel represent
            18.2% of the overall Israeli defense budget.”

            Contrary to ordinary U.S. policy, Israel has been and continues to be
            allowed to use approximately 25% of this military aid to purchase
            equipment from Israeli manufacturers. According to CRS, “no other
            recipient of U.S. military assistance has been granted this benefit.”
            Thanks in part to this indirect U.S. subsidy, Israel’s arms industry has
            become one of the strongest in the world. “Between 2001 an 2008, it was
            the 7th largest arms supplier to the world with sales worth a total of
            9.9 billion”

            In fact it is EXACTLY the same! Pakistan and Egypt have to use that aid to buy weapons from the US! Do you ever stop lying? Or are you lot taught to lie as soon as you speak?

            Pakistan is corrupt and does not spend it on military like they should, tr0ll

            “Western officials have claimed nearly 70% (roughly $3.4 billion) of Military aid given to the [Pakistani] military has been misspent in 2002-2007 and used to cover civilian deficit.”

            Indeed Man-O .. they track all money to and from any country with ‘wire-transfers’ – which don’t require you to write down the list of groceries it will be used for each time. Probably just as well, if you’re a male buying Kotex … until you send the ‘fees’ for an operation, of course … which will be an amount that could purchase a used Russian tank probably … so the relative almost dies while you try to explain it, and might die if the send is ‘refused’ anyway, because the hospital isn’t going to do anything until it has the cash.
            Now, how people wish to ‘interpret’ what money is used FOR becomes a propaganda issue when punted out as ‘end-of-year’ statements.

            Now as we discussed before Levant is not Arabia and Lebanon is a caucasian country unlike the Persians who look like their Arab descendents since they were conquered by the Arab Mullahs who still do their women.
            Compare below the Lebanese Army vs. the Arab descendants Iranians.

            Why does a name have to mean anything? But, I could take a guess … 😉
            Barabie is like Barbie … in it’s original form a well-but-overly-proportioned Doll … and one that was strippable, which little brothers always noted …. so I would guess the answer is ‘Doll’ … although, the proportioning problem is perhaps why the need for Cross-training. Certainly desirable even over years. 😉

        1. She knows precisely what you are saying. Its just that she has her head in the sand. She blames HA for all of Lebanons misfortunes. When in fact HA is Lebanons last line of defense. Don’t mind her however, she has a very subtle way with her words. NOT. Lol.

    The mere fact of a million destitute people landing on impoverished Lebanon is enough to give anyone the ‘willies’, let alone when there’s bound to be a few already brain damaged by their plight and experiences – thanks to all waring factions. And of course the Assad-Friendlies didn’t want to set things up properly in the beginning anyway – wouldn’t even let ‘aid people’ in to give it. Hell, some citizens get nothing too.
    Both ‘sides’ can bitch all they want now, but yes it’s a disaster of humanity created by WAR.
    Jordan set up right away, and got the help. They have a functioning government. Turkey saw the need.
    Lebanon said: ‘Oh well, families can take care of them’. More headache for Lebanese, that.
    And yes, the refugees need the help, AND the Lebanese need the protection.
    WAR is the reason. No ‘glory’ in it at all.

        I was heart wrenched by it.
        What is even sadder is that most of the so called good people are doing nothing to stop this.
        As a matter of fact you are the only one that has even commented on this with some emotion .
        God bless your efforts.

          Would be good if you included the photographer’s ‘by-lines’ at least.
          Hard to tell which ‘conflict zone’ this has come from – could be post-earthquake too.

    There You go, another speech from the gringos throughout the SNC to incriminate Lebanese and to divide. and some of You are biting the hook. have You forgotten who is financing this? and why?

    Read:

    Just Remember that when Lebanon and Syria Re-established Diplomatic relations in 2009, We opened Our Embassy in Syria and Syria opened theirs in Lebanon respecting each other autonomy,

    Stating that Shebaa Farms are Lebanese.

    This is what Israel didn’t like because goes against their greed for keeping the Golan Heights and Shebaa farms, And this is why USA the UK and Israel harvested from Turkey an insurrection to topple Bashar Assad, Israel Don’t want anybody to have peace in the region is goes against them, Israel always will try to divide the region fomenting civilian unrest and rivalry the same way is been during many years, is a war of divide and defeat and is time for everyone to see what is really behind all this innocent bloodshed, is Evil.

    Lebanese army maps published in 1961 and 1966 specifically pinpoint several of the Shebaa Farms, including Zebdine, Fashkoul, Mougr Shebaa and Ramta, all of which are designated as being lebanese. Lebanese Ministry of Tourism maps also show the Lebanese-Syrian border running west of the Shebaa Farms. Syria has officially acknowledged the Farms are Lebanese.

    Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said the Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms belong to Lebanon. Assad told a news conference in Paris before ending a state visit to France, Beirut and Damascus will demarcate their countries’ border at Shebaa Farms after Israel withdraws from the region. They will then submit a new map to the UN.

    You see?
