Lebanon’s Christian President: Estimated 1.5 Million Syrian Refugees Must Go Home

“We don’t want to wait for their voluntary return,” declared Lebanon’s Maronite Christian President Michel Aoun, speaking alongside French President Emmanuel Macron in France on Monday, reports the Associated Press (AP).

President Aoun argued that the United Nations assistance devoted to aiding Syrian refugees in Lebanese “camps of misery” would be better used to return them to Syria “from now on.”

Marking the world’s highest concentration of refugees per capita, an estimated 25 percent of Lebanon’s population of nearly 6.2 million is now made up of Syrians.

This year, Dr. Fouad Abou Nader, the leader and founder of the Liberty Front (LF) Christian party in Lebanon, told Breitbart News that the influx of Syrian refugees had contributed significantly to Christians losing their majority status in his country.

Once a majority, Lebanese Christians now comprise only about 40 percent of the country’s population, Breitbart News learned from Mr. Talal al-Doueihy, the founder of Lebanese Land-Our Land Movement.

Dr. Nader noted that a law implemented by Muslim leaders in Lebanon “naturalized hundred of thousands of foreign Muslims” to ensure Islam adherents make up the majority of the population.

Established by France in 1920 after the instigation of Christians, Lebanon was intended to serve as a sanctuary for persecuted religious Christians in the Middle East.

However, Christians have lost most of their lands and majority status to Muslims due to low birth rates among their followers and a refugee wave, placing their future in the country in peril.

Nevertheless, the country’s largest religious groups continue to share power in Lebanon: the speaker of parliament is a Shiite, the prime minister a Sunni, and the president a Christian.

French President “Macron distanced himself from his counterpart’s viewpoint, saying that the absence of a political solution in Syria prevents refugees from returning back home permanently,” notes AP.

Dr. Nader told Breitbart News that the wave of Muslim refugees coming into Lebanon, namely those from Syria and the Palestine region, is fueling “a deadly demographic imbalance” to the detriment of Christians.

“Their [Muslim refugees] presence creates a lot of problems for Lebanon, its economy, its development, its growth, its security, its borders, its demography, its political stability, its religious balance, etc.,” said the Christian party leader.

Predominantly Muslim Syria and Palestine border Lebanon. On top of the estimated 1.5 million Syrian, at least another 550,000 Palestinian refugees have traveled into Lebanon in recent years.

Refugee Complains:
‘Too Many Laws’ In Western World

 During a recent interview with local media in Australia, a Sudanese refugee and mother of six suggested that the Australian government deserves the blame for her eldest son’s propensity for crime.

According to Nine News, Asha Awya’s eldest son is an unemployed gang member who has spent time in prison. Instead of pinning the blame for her son’s actions on him, however, Awya feels the Australian government deserves it for passing “too many laws.”

She said so during an appearance last week on the Australian program “A Current Affair,” where she also appeared to slam actual Australians for allegedly not making it easy for refugees to assimilate.

“They (her kids) came from a very traumatized environment, and coming to Australia, trying to fit in with the religion and the friends around them at school, is very challenging,” she said. “We have all these laws, so it’s just very confusing, and I feel sorry for the kids because they don’t know how to deal with this.”

But that’s not all. Awya also complained that the government provides her with too little money.

“The Centrelink money is not enough,” she said, referencing a welfare program operated by the Australian government’s Department of Human Services.

“Sometimes I cut some of their entertainment,” she added, saying in effect that she sometimes stops handing out allowances so as to reduce her costs.

And this, she believes, only serves to incentivize her son’s desire to commit crime.

“If mum always not giving me money, there’s no pocket money, then maybe I have to find a way of stealing and get my own money,” she said, articulating what she believes goes through her son’s mind.

So even though the Australian government graciously (and perhaps naively) allowed this Sundanese woman to migrate to the country, she basically resents this same government because it refuses to lavishly provide for her and her family’s every single need, including their desire for entertainment.

Behold the perfect example of a spoiled-rotten, ungrateful refugees, ladies and gentlemen.

You know, the media often accuse those who criticize their respective governments for allowing refugees to flood their neighborhoods of harboring racist views. If only it were that simple.

Many Westerners, including your truly — a citizen whose family immigrated to the West from India over three decades ago — take issue with the behavior of refugees.

Besides making nary an effort to assimilate, many refugees wind up on welfare, eschewing hard work and effort for a life of government subsistence and oftentimes a life of crime as well.

Now, consider what Awya told “A Current Affair” and answer me this: Is it really “racist” that Westerners such as yours truly prefer that migrants such as her remain in their own country instead of being allowed to migrate to ours?

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about this Sudanese refugee’s disgusting lack of gratitude.
