Palestinains have lived in Lebanon for more than 60 years, but still they are condemned to life as second-class citizens. While they do not have any citizenship rights, they do not have any social rights wither. The society - Lebanese of all sects, classes, persuasions, ideologies - discriminate against them and treat them suspiciously. Palestinains are discriminated massively in the private sector and are banned altogether from the public sector. In many cases in factories where they are employed, their employment is de jure illegal and they are totally at the mercy of the Lebanese management of the factory. If a business starts taking losses, Palestinians workers are the first to be laid off. Many Palestinains have competent degrees but the doors of profitable employment are closed to them. There are many Palestinian doctors/medical professionals in Lebanon, but they are banned from working in any hospital. They can only set up their own clinics inside the camps. the same with the Lawyers, they cannot work in any Law firm and have to totally depend on their private practice within the camp. Many Palestinian workers work in factories and construction sites doing the hardest and riskiest jobs yet go without pay for many months. There is no social security or insurance for Palestinian workers. Their employers do not face any accountability while dealing with them, especially if they have the backing of powerful politicians of both March 8 and March 14 (may they all rot in hell together). Thus, the biggest problem in Palestinian-Lebanese society is unemployment. In this they are no different than their brethren in Jordan, Egypt, Syria and Kuwait. Arabs themselves are the greatest enemies of Palestinians. Palestinains are treated suspiciosuly by all Lebanese of all sects and parties. They are easily recognisable because of their darker complexion and typical looks. They are treated brutally by the Lebanese Armed Forces and the ISF (Police). Both March 8 and March 14 politicians abuse them. The only future for a Palestinian is to work as a day wage labourer, even if he has a degree in engineering, accountancy, law, or business management. We expected March 8 to be a bit sympathetic but even they are dabbling with jingoistic elements like FPM and SSNP and who can forget AMAL's own antipathy with the Palestinians. At least we expected Sayyid Nasrallah to provide some real solutions to the problems of the Palestinains. Do they have a solution ? Even care for a solution ?
