An Arab-American political activist currently teaching at the University of Balamand in Lebanon, Masri said today: "There's loads of hypocrisy on all sides. The Europeans can't really claim 'freedom of speech' given that there are laws restricting certain speech in Europe which don't exist in the United States. For the Arabs, there's now a movement directed against Denmark for cartoons, but no nonviolent movement, including targeted boycotts, against the Israeli and U.S. occupations. ... During a recent peaceful protest near the U.S. embassy in Lebanon -– protests just outside the U.S. embassy are not allowed -- the Lebanese government responded very harshly. The government knew a massive protest was going to happen outside the Danish embassy and didn't have the necessary police presence."
