There’s been an increase of Syrians in the country of Lebanon. Many have complained about Syrians taking their jobs. The increase of Syrians at refugee camps has been occupying more space. Many songs have been made mocking Syrians, and videos made by the citizens telling them to get out and stop voting for Bashar Al Assad to be president again. They are also being blamed by doctors for risen cancer rates which doesn’t make much sense. History repeats itself again as another crisis occurs while others get blamed. They are being treated as outsiders and have had mass evictions inflicted upon them. (Fun fact: Lebanon used to be part of Syria before the French Mandate split them up.)
