Palestinian Association for Human Rights is pursuing the ministerial statement
of the current government, congratulating the formation of the Lebanese
government and wishing them success in their work through their legal duration
and the wishes for security, safety and economic stability. An extreme surprise
is recorded by "Witness" as a result of the lack of Lebanese
commitment toward the Palestinian rights in terms of the international
Obligations taking into consideration the rights of work and ownership.
confirmed in the ministerial statement: "We confirm the government's
commitment to the provisions of the Constitution as a rejection of the
principle of resettlement of refugees and especially the Palestinians supporting
their right to return to their homeland. The international organizations and some
countries should hold up responsibilities to support "UNRWA" in a"
permanent and non-intermittent" way, including the funds to reconstruct of
Nahr AL Bared Camp.
confirms the need to strengthen the Lebanese-Palestinian dialogue, to avoid
what is happening in the camps as the tension and the use of the weapon are
increasing, which does not serve its case.Actually,it is not acceptable to the
Lebanese people and government. "
above paragraph completely has nothing from the Lebanese commitment to the
rights of Palestinian refugees residing in Lebanon forcibly for more than 68
years. Lebanon is a founding member of the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights, which has an obligation under the LebaneseConstitution's Introduction. Lebanon
is also certified to the International Bill of Human Rights and numerous
international conventions in international human rights law and all are signed
agreements and ratified by Lebanon voluntarily, which make Lebanon committed to
it away from any understandings and controversies.
the international organizations tend to support the Palestinians, they look for
legal environments. For example: how it could be for "UNRWA" to offer
job opportunities for Palestinians in which Lebanon prevents them from working
especially in the self-employment jobs. And how can other international
organizations to be aware of its role in alleviating the suffering of the
refugees in the camps, which are overcrowded in a difficult way to live, does
the Lebanese government to expand the space of any camp? And how can wedecrease
the enormous pressure on the population in the camps while Lebanese state to
prevent the repossession of one real estate under the real estate acquisition
Law No. 296/2001.
to respect the rights Palestinians is a benefit for the Lebanese in first,
and right of return is achieved through the
fulfillment of human rights and international obligations. The pressure,
deprivation and marginalization provide a fertile environment for illegal
immigration, extremism and violence. The approaches to the human rights of the
Palestinian situation in Lebanon is the safest and best way to prevent the
resettlement and deportation.
