I was born in Australia to lebanese parents and have thus acquired the Lebanese citizenship when I was young. I am also an Australian citizen making me a dual citizen. However I only have an Australian passport.
I am very interested in partaking in the Arabic summer program for diaspora students in Birzeit University in Ramallah. However, when I emailed them with information about myself and asking for brochures and the application information, they let me know that I might not be allowed through the Israeli check points because of my lebanese heritage. I also have an arab first name and last name.
My question is: because I have an Australian passport, will Israeli soldiers actually know that I am a lebanese citizen? Will I have any troubles at the checkpoints?
