Lebanese protest for Charlie in Beirut yesterday

The correspondent of Al-Quds Al-`Arabi in Beirut explained today why the size of the solidarity demonstration for Charlie Hebdo in Beirut yesterday was small.  He said that many Christians who were planning to attend were alerted that the magazine not only carried insults of Muslims but that it also insulted Christians.  So many boycotted the event for that. Insulting Muslims: free speech, but insulting Christians? That is impudence.
