Rosen on Palestinians in Lebanon

Nir Rosen has a piece on Palestinians in Lebanon in the Post. It doesn’t mention the economic discrimination against Palestinians here, who make up around 10% of the population in Lebanon. Nor does it go much into the politics of the camps (NGOs, PLO, Damascus and jihadi groups). But it does give a good overview of Palestinian scapegoating, which reminds me of a conversation with a friend during the Nahr el-Bared fighting when we wondered why it is that whenever Lebanon wants to come together as a country, it’s usually at the expense of the Palestinians.



  1. its a very sad article.. its even sadder that i can imagine that there may in fact be another side..

    nevertheless whatever that side may say – this story remains tragic..

  2. I’m not sure I understand what you’re getting at. Another side to what?
