The war in Syria and its wave of refugees is destabilizing and overwhelming Lebanon. Now there are fears the hundreds of thousands of newcomers will never want to leave, and the sectarian conflict will worsen.

The above link (if it comes through) shows a good summary of the Syrian refugee situation. Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and so on . . . 17 countries have offerred to take refugees , including those in North America and the EU but many understandably have had to set quotas.

I am sorry to say it but Lebanon is a failed state.The rot set in when the PLO entered the country and set up a state within a state and Syrian occupation.Then we have Hezbollah doing the same.This situation lead to war with Israel who expelled the PLO which brought about a certain amount of stability to the country sadly it is now in a worse state than ever.It is often forgotten that when the PLO were given refugee status in Jordan instead of learning from their experience in Lebanon they refused to disarm and once again tried to set up a state within a state.This provoked the King of Jordan to unleash his Arab Legions against the PLO and once again they were expelled.They are still occupying a very large part if Jordan which is now called the West Bank by some and the Palestinian Authority by others.I have come to the conclusion to accept refugees in to ones own country is a mistake because they will never ever leave.

It is such a shame, that a small country like Lebanon has to take more refugees than our rich European and other so called christian states! Muslims are none of our business I guess. The less, the better I could add if I was cynical.
