Shatila was first built to shelter 3,000 Palestinians who were displaced from their homeland by the creation of Israel.The reasoning is simple: Fewer people will seek asylum in Europe if they help more refugees in Lebanon.Anas Mohammad, a 39-year-old Sudanese refugee, said that he first came to Lebanon 17 years ago.That matters little to UNHCR, which has rejected his refugee claim multiple times. Yet that hasn't stopped him from building a dignified life for himself in Lebanon.At least that's been the case for Ali Mezaad, a 39-year-old Iraqi refugee who fled to Lebanon with his family 10 years ago.While the Syrian war has produced the single largest refugee crisis since the 1940s, Palestinians in Lebanon are arguably the most neglected population in the Middle East.Palestinians in Lebanon are still denied working in over 25 high-skilled professions, owning property or establishing their own associations. The international community also hasn't shown any political will to ease Lebanon's burden.
