Lebanon also has a problem with Muslim "immigration".
President Emile Lahoud was interviewed by Spiegel. Besides showing strong support for Hizballah, the terrorist organization that has taken over the country, he mentions the problems Lebanon has with the Palestinian refugees. (They have been refugees for the past 60 years).
SPIEGEL: The United Nations want to defuse the problem through a massive deployment of international troops in southern Lebanon.
Lahoud: That is an old proposal, which is hardly achievable. As long as the conflict between Lebanon and Israel remains unresolved, no international force will help, however large it may be. The problems smoulder on: the undetermined status of the Schebaa Farms, the Lebanese prisoners in Israel and above all the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
SPIEGEL: Why the Palestinians?
Lahoud: We have today around half a million Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, their birth rate is three times higher than the Lebanese. That is a time bomb. It is the basic problem of our country, it led to the outbreak of civil war in 1975 and still remains unsolved today. Everybody today is talking about UN resolution 1559, but nobody mentions resolution 194, which recognizes the Palestinians' right of return (to Israel). Lebanon is small and can't integrate the Palestinians.
