Lebanon won't let Palestinians buy land

Lebanon won't let Palestinians buy land
By JPOST.COM STAFF


A bill which would have allowed Palestinians to buy property in Lebanon has been withdrawn, prompting accusations of racism and discrimination, the Arabic Aljazeera network reported.

An estimated 390,000 Palestinians live in Lebanon, half of whom live in camps.

On Monday any hopes of ever owning their own property were dashed when Lebanese Parliament speaker Nabih Berri withdrew draft legislation which would have lifted a ban on Palestinian refugees from owning property in Lebanon.

The current legislation forbids the acquisition of real estate by all non-Lebanese persons "who do not possess citizenship issued by a state recognised by Lebanon."

"[Berri] withdrew from the agenda the bill presented by 10 deputies which aimed to amend a text banning Palestinians from acquiring real estate," the dean of the house Kabalan Issa al-Khuri told Aljazeera.

"This subject is divisive among Lebanese," Berri said. "The acquisition by Palestinians of real estate would damage the Palestinian cause because that way the refugees would remain in Lebanon and never return to Palestine," he added.

Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri believes that the time was not right to grant Palestinians living in Lebanon such rights, but that the "unjust" ban would one day be lifted, the Arabic network reported.


{of course, Lebanon is still occupied by Syria, so they don't really call their own shots}

I find there's alot of hypocrisy in regards to Arab states that surround Israel and the territories. Excluding some of the in-take of refugees in Jordan, most Arab nations reject the idea of Palestinian refugees out of fear that it would cause instability among the social fabric - meanwhile these nations attend summits that are supposed to benefit the Palestinians in some way.

I agree. I think arafat should jstart an infatade or a fatwah, what ever the fuck it is, and bomb these arabs:)

Interesting how these arabs are protesting Isreal for not letting palestineans have 'their' land, but they don't want them either. Yo'd think that Saudi Arabia could just say "OK, here is a splotch of barren desert the same size of Isreal, we'll give it to the palestineans to avoid future conflict, come on in boys, the anti-western sentiment is red hot". But no because, as I've said before, teh arab dictators like having scapegoats to use to blind their people as to whom teh REAL oppressors are.
