Palestinian National Authority’s Official News Agency Admits Lebanon Treats Their Refugees Like Garbage
WAFA news agency, the official news agency of the Palestinian National Authority, has acknowledged that Lebanon discriminates against palestinian Arab refugees in their country.
The Minister of Labor in the new Lebanese government, Mustafa Bayram, said today that he supports changing laws that discriminate against the Palestinian refugees living in his country.
He told Palestine TV that he will do what he can to make sure the Palestinian people do not remain subject to injustice or treated unfairly in their host country.
Almost half a million Palestinian refugees are registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine refugees in Lebanon with half of them living in 12 refugee camps under dire conditions characterized by overcrowding, poor housing conditions, unemployment, poverty and lack of access to justice. Palestinians in Lebanon do not enjoy several important rights; for example, they cannot work in as many as 39 professions and cannot own property.
Which is more than I can say for almost all so-called “pro-palestinian” activists and many “human rights” organizations, for whom the maxim “no Jews, no news” applies.
