Lebanese marriages

"But the study has proven the argument to be out of touch with the facts: slightly more Lebanese women are married to Syrians than Palestinians (22 percent compared to 21.7 percent), with those married to other Arabs or foreigners forming the majority (56.3 percent). “The Palestinians or the Syrians are not from one [religious] denomination, just like the Lebanese,” the study said. Looking at national figures shows that only two percent of all Lebanese women are married to Palestinians." (thanks Sami)
