first of all, I never said that living in an Arab country "is a fate worse than death". I've lived in two Arab countries and have visited various western ones and I can honestly say that I love it so much in the Arab world, I can't picture myself living anywhere else! What I'm saying, however, is that being forced to leave the place you grew up, being forced to detach yourself from your roots, whether that's to go an Arab OR Western country.. .THAT is what is worse than death itself. And to answer your question about the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.. refugees in Lebanon don't live in the hellish conditions that they live in because the Lebanese are 'cruel', they live in such conditions because the Lebanese gov't is so poor that, with over 28% of its population living under the poverty line, it can hardly provide for its own people let alone the Palestinian refugees. Just thought I'd clear that up for you!
