Should Christian refugees in Lebanon be naturalized?

Currently there are 150-200K Christian refugees in Lebanon, with about 80K being Assyrians from Iraq and the rest Syrian Christians (mostly Greek Orthodox/Melkite Catholics and some Syriacs).

As we know Lebanon was founded to be a safe heaven for Christians in the Middle East, and even if things took a different direction shouldn't it be our moral duty to follow our country's original principles? These are actual real refugees who would be killed if they went back to Mosul, Aleppo etc. They are not like Sunnis/ISIS supporters fleeing Assad that could go to any other Middle Eastern country, not even the West has accepted these Christians, they have no where else to go.

Besides, naturalizing 200K Christians is very different from naturalizing 200k Muslims, they would not be a burden to the economy. On the contrary, Middle Eastern Christians are very hard working people and if anything would help the economy. Objectively speaking, we all know this, but of course the Muslims will cry about 'demographic threath' even if they have already won this war.

    Do we have a gene study on the subject? Do they have any canaanites or mwarne genes flowing through their veins?

    Not only are these numbers untrue and the thread being extremely racist, but the Maronite church, in all of its ultra-racism glory, would not agree due to the fact that they are not Maronite.

    It's disappointing, for the refugees's sake, for the world's sake, and for Israel's sake, that Israel hasn't taken in any refugees from Syria and Iraq, particularly ones from persecuted religious minorities.

    Why would anyone from a persecuted minority even consider taking asylum in Israel of all countries?
    People are not stupid, especially the ones who are in dire situations.

    Because Israel is stable, its economy can absorb immigrants, and Middle Eastern minorities there would be under less pressure to assimilate than they would be in Europe or North America.

    I can't guess how many refugees would want to go to Israel, but Nadia Murad, the Yazidi who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018, said, during a visit to Israel, that Israel should accept Yazidis.

    Anyway. Israel isn't taking in any refugees anyway.

    lol... they wouldn't a take a few thousand African refugees, you want them to take Arab and Muslim refugees? Dunno what happened with those African refugees btw. Somehow they disappeared from the media.. it was causing way too much embarrassment for Israel's liberal defenders.

    Pretty sad though for a country that calls itself one of refugees. The hypocrisy is a little too much.

    Who said anything about Arab or Muslims? We're talking about Christians and other persecuted minorities here, all of whom would thrive in Israel just like the Lebanese Christian refugees in Israel are. Anyway, that's off-topic, this thread is meant to discuss Christian refugees in Lebanon.

    The poster of the thread is asking a question that comes from a christian mentality/ background/ prospective. The same question can be asked from someone who comes from a muslim mentality background prospective. Both want their demographic interest and the conclusion is yhat this cant happen for both!

    Actually this is a very objective and fair question. Other Middle Eastern Christian diasporas have proved to be just as successful as the Lebanese Christians. It's just a FACT that Middle Eastern Christians are more hardworking, productive and have higher morals than Muslims (so are much less prone to commit crimes and are thousands of times more peaceful people).

    No they have to return there country home and fight to stay. They have to improve their existence as we are doing in Lebanon and Syria. Palestinians and iraki Christians should return back and fight.

    The right thing to do is to revoke the naturalization decree that was done in the 90’s by Hariri
    And if successful we can go to federalism because this is the ONLY solution for a country like Lebanon
    This is the only sustainable path for a country like Lebanon
    Else lebanon will be a very different place in 1-2 generation from now
