Linda Boulos-Macari started this petition to President of Lebanon and

In 2006, an extremist group called "fateh al Islam" gained control of the "Nahr el Bared" Palestinian refugee camp in North Lebanon, took the residents hostage and engaged in a battle against our national military killing 170 of our finest soldiers and injuring hundreds of them besides the damage done to civilians including Lebanese and Palestinians. Today, through our communication with the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon we have discovered that non-Palestinians now constitute more than 60% of the residents in the Palestinian refugee camps here. Please note that these camps have special rules and regulations that were made to be applied on Palestinians only such as the right to bear arms and the right to receive humanitarian help. These non-documented foreigners who are fleeing from the counter terrorism battles in neighbouring countries such as Syria are finding a fertile ground to regroup, regain forces and carry weapons in these camps, they are a threat to our families, to our military and to the security and reputation of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

Instead of dealing with this disastrous situation, we were shocked to learn that our government has received a grant of 21 million Euros as a first payment from Germany that came after our government asked for it under the project: "the reconstruction of the Nahr el bared camp"! We, the people ask our government to reconsider rebuilding a camp that was initially destroyed by our Lebanese military through blood and lives to protect us from extremists, a camp that will surely shelter non-Palestinians not Palestinian refugees since they only constitute about half the number of residents in their present camps while the Lebanese people and the Palestinian refugees are in dire need of that money for humanitarian assistance.

Stand with Justice, help us protect Lebanon, God bless you
