FILM: The Real ‘Migrant Crisis’ Is Not In Europe, It’s In Lebanon

21st Century Wire says…

The real ‘migrant crisis’ is not in Europe, but in the small nation of Lebanon who has absorbed 2.5 million (official and unofficial) Syrian refugees since the conflict began next door in 2011. What more, outside of Lebanon, no one really knows, and no one really cares.

“The war in Syria forced millions of civilians to flee their homes. Many of them crossed the border into Lebanon. But even though they are out of the war zone, they have to fight for their lives more than ever.”
