Lebanese Bishop Appeals For Christian Syrian Refugees

By CNA

January 8, 2014

Christian refugees from Syria living in Lebanon need the support of their Western counterparts, according to an Eastern Catholic bishop who is himself a native of Syria.

“They live in rented homes, sometimes with multiple families in a single home or a set of rooms … most of these Christian families, however, are in need of the very basics of daily life – food, educational opportunities for their children, medical care,” Archbishop Issam John Darwish of the Melkite Greek Archeparchy of Zahle and Fourzol told the charity Aid to the Church in Need last month.

“Many of them are in bad shape, emotionally and materially – they left everything behind and came here with literally nothing. Jihadist rebels came to them at night and forced them to leave immediately – they are traumatized, because they were unable to mourn and pray for their dead. We try to support them emotionally and financially.”

Lebanon is a good nation

It was. for a very long time. It was culturally diverse ---in general
the usual hatreds were under control. Then the French left-----
and then christians and jews started leaving. Now it is in grave
danger. Mecca was ----long ago-----culturally diverse----so

Let us not forget the Palestinian massace of the Lebanese Christians in the bunkers of Sabra & Shatila which prompted Lebanese president Bashir Gemayal to call on Israel to come & help save the lives of the Lebanese Christians. To this day Lebanese Christians are still grateful to Israel.
