A Lebanese student is in jail because he wrote on Facebook in praise of Syrian workers in Lebanon

So he wrote on Facebook that the shoes of Syrian refugees in Lebanon is worth more than the Lebanese flag, cedars and such.  The unit of "internet crimes" (there is such a unit in Lebanon) immediately ordered his arrest. Notice that Lebanese repression doesn't get much attention from Western human rights groups especially Human Rights Watch because Human Rights Watch in Lebanon is in the same camp with March 14, which runs the Lebanese Internal Security Forces.
