Khaled Abu Toameh, a man of outstanding integrity and bravery

Reader comment on: Facebook's "Accidental Mistake" and Free Speech in the Arab World

Submitted by Batya Casper, Jan 18, 2013 15:22

Facebook's mistake was heinous - and dangerous. Toameh has had the courage to stand for truth and justice in the face of his own people. For him to be stymied by Facebook is a horrendous reflection on the integrity of the free world. The best argument Facebook can use in its own defense is that it is sloppy. Where does that leave those of us who use it?
