Human Rights Watch, Are Lebanon's Disappeared Unequal?‎, Nadim Houry


The sad truth is that in Lebanon not all disappeared are equal. During the 1990s, it was popular for government officials to complain about the disappeared in Israel but to harass those who spoke about the disappeared in Syria. After the Syrian army withdrew from Lebanon in 2005, Lebanon's new ruling coalition embraced the cause of the disappeared in Syria, but refused to tackle the disappeared in Lebanon's mass graves. Under the current national unity government, things look better on paper but not in practice.
