This is the constant in Lebanese politics: scapegoating refugees.
Syrians in Lebanon have greeted the country’s uprising with a complex blend of joy, envy, melancholy, and fear.
"A powerful new chronicle of the Syrian tragedy, based on interviews with regime insiders and rebel activists, seeks to explain the Assad government’s successful grip on power and the lengths to which it will go to maintain this."
"Through our stories we work hard to portray the current situation of the Syrian streets as it is, through the eyes of its people, reflecting how they feel."
This is the story of an idea called Daraya. It is the story of a sick world.
Syrian refugees in Lebanon fear reprisals by the Assad regime in the form of homelessness, forced conscription, torture, or worse.
“I am talking about the suffering of women inside Ghouta.”
"The deplorable living conditions of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon after 1990 are a direct consequence of their use as scapegoats for the country's civil war."
"How can one claim that these people are here to receive aid from international organizations, when many are, in fact, not receiving any?"
“Syrian society has been without a sense of historical purpose or a ‘project’ that could unite the people and align their expectations"
