In dire need of assistance

Congratulations on providing the Palestinian people with aid in
Palestine. The Palestinians are also in dire need of assistance in The
Lebanon where they are in houses built from cardboard, sacks and
galvanised sheeting as well as breeze blocks. I do not think they are
actually starving but their plight is not good. Children beg on the
streets and their markets are thirty second hand not just second hand.

Ordinary people in the streets of this country and any other 'civilised'
countries do not understand the plight of the Palestinian people. I try
to tell as many people as I can when the conversation turns to thoughts of
the Israel (Palestine) situation.

Palestine is still on many of the maps used in the Middle East.
