L'Orient le Jour - Lebanon | 30/09/2015

Exodus from Europe: Lebanon is a powder keg

Around one third of Lebanon's population is made up of refugees, mainly Palestinians and Syrians. The next wave of immigrants heading for Europe will come from there, the Lebanese daily L'Orient - Le Jour warns: "Allowing the misery to grow and endure for lack of financial resources will only turn these camps into terrorist hotbeds. As integration along European lines has been ruled out, international funding can only serve to improve the refugees' conditions on location. And the Lebanese know better than anyone how long such a situation can last. … Do Lebanon's friends really want to come to its aid? Then it is no longer a simple question of money. They should lend an ear to the warnings recently issued by Johannes Hahn, the Austrian commissioner for European enlargement. For him the next big wave of migrants can only come from Lebanon, a fragile, unstable, indebted country hard hit by unemployment - a dangerous combination."
