The police should be arresting the Eden Bay owners, the Bisri dam project managers, the fattoush brothers, not some low profile barbers, vegetable sellers making 10 000 LL of daily profit.

Aiming to please the lazy populace: attack the Syrians so they leave and labor price doubles.

Even though Lebanon post war was rebuilt by Syrian sweat, we are still racist against them.

Today even shias have Syrian workers!!

You confuse racism and xenophobia for the Syrians or Palestinians. We can speak of racism for African or East Asian immigrants.
