    600.000 refugees?? that is about the size of the "NAQBA" displacement.
    I hope it does not develope into a similar problem. Just shoving them
    back is, clearly, not the answer I wonder if NEW COUNTRIES
    should be considered a viable solution. -----in order to separate
    hostile ethnic groups. If there can be a seceded SOUTH SUDAN
    ---maybe there can be a seceded south "syria/lebanon" or a seceded NORTH LEBANON
    with kurdish areas annexed ----or something of a practical geographical spread to accomodate ENDANGERED species over there
