Patterns ana THE EXILES NOBODY WANTS By TOM TIEDE TRIPOLI, Lebanon The Al Badawi camp for Pales- tine refugees is ensconced at the foot of the Cedar Mountains, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and surrounded by endless fields of olive groves. The residents say it was built by Hie Nations and is reputedly one of the best of its bind in the Middle East. That said, it should be added it's a festering pest hole. Al Badawi is overcrowded, underdeveloped and unfit for human existence. Built after the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, it has remained largely unchanged, except for deterioration, from its original intention as a tem- porary shelter, Today, a quar- ter of a century later, except for an occasional TV antenna, it's like something from tire dark ages. Constructed in an unimagi- native one-story square, it is a thousand cement huts filled with people and insects and limping dogs. The main street runs four hundred yards along urine-yellowed walls, dead rats, ducking lizards, piles of trash and gapping-grimy children. Most of the families hava rooted here for nearly two dec- ades. Virtually all the children have never known anything else. "These are says camp leader All Ibrahim, "but see them they live like swine." No argument. The residents are often crowded fivo and six to a small room. Open sewers run between the shelters. Sani- tation facilities plug regularly. Roofs leak. Windows are out. And the smell, says an official, "is a, combination of what we eat and what we excrete." Bad as the camp is, however, All Badawi can claim no dis- tinction. Since more than 15 similar compounds have been built in Lebanon and three dozen more in other Middle East nations. Together the camps hold 40 per cent of the 1.5 million IM-registered Pales- tine refugees, half of whom have been living without home or country for almost two dec- ades. Tlie situation, ignored or not fully understood by most of the world, is the. most complex shame of the Arab-Israel hos- tilities. Once dominant in Pales- tine, the refugees were chased out (or fled) during the 1848 war, Palestine became and the Palestinians became exiles whom nobody not even Arab nations really wanted. Thus the UN-supervised camps. Today more than half a million people exist in the compounds, waiting for some solution as to thoir permanent fate. The wait obviously has been no treat. Refugees in Lebanon and other nations are human heings in limbo. At best, they have bean merely tolerated by their host nations; at worse, as in Jordan of some years ago, they have been massacred and brutalized. Governments owe them no allegiance, thus no guarantees. The refugees are stringently subject to the laws in the land of their settlement, but receive virtually no benefit of citizenship. "If a Lebanese is laid off says an Al Bad- awi resident, "he is helped by the government. If a Palestin- ian is laid off he is told to get the hell back to his camp and shut up." For many in the camps, shut- ting up would be suicide. Al- ready they feel the world has forgotten them and intends to let them suffer in silence. Thus some, like 47-year-old Issa Ah- med, proclaim at any oppor- tunity. "We will force the world to listen." The Munich massa- cre, numerous airline hijack- ings, the recent seizure of diplo- mats in the Sudan, including two Americans, and continuing terrorism against Israel is part of the shout for world attention. In Ahmed's case, his cry is understandable. Once a farm- ing land owner in Palestine, he says he fled in 1948 just in front of "Jew bullets." He wandered for miles, set up a tent in Tri- poli for some years, finally set- tled in Al Badawi. Today, as an 580 a month garbage collector, he administers to the needs of a family unit of 12 children of his own, seven clu'l- dien of a dead brother, and other relatives. They live in two small houses here. Ahmed gets some help from the UN Not much. The UN budget of million a year figures out, say Al Badawi offi- cers, to about per person (in the form, mostly, of food) per month at this camp. And if the figures are not altogether reliable, it is a fact that aid to the camp is on the down-swing. The problem is too immense for the UN, says one international worker: "Nations no longer are willing to give the money. Rus- sia, for one, has never contri- buted." So Issa Ahmed, sensing even harder times ahead, says the only way left for Palestinian re- fugees is to "get our guns and fight Israel, or fight anyone who supports Israel." Camp leader Ibrahim agrees thor- oughly: "Personally, I hope the pounds in England will not sa- tisfy us. We want only what is ours by law we want our 1 land, Palestine, back." Then our people will have no alternative but to fight. We must convince the world that we do not want welfare. All the dollars in the U.S., all the UN stops doing anything for us. And they will get it, they in- sist. Many refugees wear their poverty and misery as a re- minder of vengeance unfulfilled. There has been criticism that Palestinians seize few oppor- tunities to improve their com- munity lot, and this is true; idea being not to root, not to get even remotely comfortable, not to give any permanence to their lives. Thus the shame continues, with no foreseeable answer but more violence. "I will return to says camp leader Ibrahim, "and so will everyone of us here.
