The View of Arabs From London / Camels and Horses.
I called a few friends all around the UK and beyond, telling them there are scenes being broadcast from "Tahrir" Liberation square that are best seen as few words could describe them.
Camels and Horses, yes I said Camels were charging anti-government protesters in the square....How were they transported to the centre of the city?
Not much left here for a complete image of the stereotype of Egypt.
Camels, Horses, Tent, Desert, and Pyramids....
As the Arab world starts to flood with refugees-- from Iraq, to Tunisian leaders,to Arab nationals as well as Egyptians caught in the 'Revolution' fearing for the safety- let's not forget the Palestinians still beleaguered in Lebanon which, as this post reports, is one of the worst places in the Levant for a Palestinian refugee to be stranded.
He reminds us of the very real risks posed to the volatile Lebanon, when we've already witnessed direct correlation between "the marginalization of Palestinians in Lebanon" and "the emergence of reactionary organizations, such as Fatah Al-Islam, within the refugee camps."
Yazan Al-Saadi brings us his dismal verdict by outlining in an informed comprehensive piece, the roots of the problem and leading us to feel, with him, the urgent need for progressive solutions.
