Two days after the despicable bombing attack on the Coptic Church in Alexandria, Egypt, and four days before the recent outrage in Arizona targeting Rep. Giffords and others, ATFP President Dr. Ziad J. Asali and Senior Fellow Hussein Ibish published the following commentary, “Honesty and Hypocrisy in Facing Terrorism,” which was published in English in the Huffington Post and elsewhere and in Arabic in the well-known Lebanese An-Nahar newspaper.

In addressing the growing global phenomenon of homegrown terrorism, the article calls for "communities, identity groups and societies take more responsibility to proactively define boundaries regarding what will be accepted as "respectable" discourse or conduct and what clearly crosses the line and has to be confronted as socially and politically dangerous even, and perhaps especially, if that means breaching expectations of ethnic, cultural or religious solidarity."
