Lebanon debates giving Palestinians rights

 

My Way News - Lebanon debates giving Palestinians rights
My Way News reports: "The approximately 400,000 Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, many of them born here, are barred by law from any but the most menial professions and are denied many basic rights. Now parliament is debating a new law that would allow Palestinians to work in any profession and own property, as well as give them social security benefits. The bill, due for a vote on Aug. 17, is the most serious effort yet by Lebanon to transform its policies toward the refugees."
Comment: The conspiracy of silence is over! The media is suddenly aware that the government of Lebanon has been keeping Palestinians segregated in camps for decades. Furious international outrage and condemnation is sure to follow...any day now...waiting...still waiting.
