Europe's Refugee Crisis Pales in Comparison to Lebanon's (YouTube)

Being Liberal (W)

If you think Europe is experiencing a refugee crisis of epic proportions, then you probably haven't been to Lebanon-- a country that has welcomed nearly 1.5 million refugees and is 100 times smaller than the European Union. One in every four people in Lebanon is a Syrian refugee, so why is it only called a "crisis" when it hits rich, Western countries?

I went to see what a real refugee crisis looks like for myself by visiting refugee camps in Lebanon and investigating the impact that millions of Syrian refugees have had in Lebanese society.
