Lebanon citizenship laws: Mothers want to pass on nationality

Women married to foreigners are not allowed to pass on citizenship, rights campaigners want the decades-old nationality law to be reformed.

    Lebanese women hope they'll soon gain the right to pass on citizenship to their children, even if they are married to a foreigner.

    But proposed changes to the nationality law exclude women married to Syrians or Palestinians.

    Lebanon is one of two dozen mainly-Arab countries that do not give men and women equal rights when it comes to citizenship.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
