    The Syrian Occupation of Lebanon

    The Syrian Occupation of Lebanon

    Lebanon ceased to exist much like Austria ceased to exist under the German Anschluss.In fact, Syria never recognized Lebanon’s existence from the moment of her independence in 1946, refusing to establish diplomatic relations with Lebanon and having foreign embassies in Damascus be accredited to Beirut as well. A form of proximate “imperialism” functioned in both cases under the guise of a shared nationalism.

    Lebanon has lost its independence. Under foreign rule within the matrix of a foreign-manipulated police state, the Lebanese suffer from Arabization and Syrianization that deny the people, especially the Maronite Christians, their freedom and dignity. Many have been forced into exile across the countries and continents of the Lebanese diaspora. the execution of many Lebanese civilians were the direct result at this stage of the intensification and extension of Syria’s ruthless conquest of Lebanon.

    Human Rights AbusesIn human terms, the fallout from Syrian occupation has had a devastating effect on personal and political freedoms. Syrian domination has made multiple human rights violations a staple of daily life. The list of abuses amounts to a veritable catalogue: illegal wire tapping, unlawful detentions and incarceration, arrests without probable cause, kangaroo court trials, arbitrary prison sentences, torture and disappearances. Many organizations have meticulously documented these terrible misdeeds, including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, among others. These human rights violations are not only an expression of Syrian fears of dissent or political intrigue emanating from Beirut; they also signal how jittery the Lebanese government is about criticism of its policy failures.
    Why No Challenges to Syrian Control?
    why has the erosion of Lebanon's freedoms not yet inspired a popular insurrection? For one, ordinary Lebanese realize they lack a reliable external ally. Second, the Syrian leadership has cleverly ingested Lebanon at a step-by-step. The nature of the Syrian regime permits it easily to sustain guerilla-style attacks against its civilian and military presence in Lebanon.
