Hazem El Masri, a first-grade league player with the Canterbury Bulldogs, was born in Lebanon and raised in Sydney’s southwest.His fame among the area’s large Lebanese community has made him a powerful icon for the region’s youth. Local police have his private number if they need his help.
He’s a local boy – a Lebanese local boy – made good. And he is a sensational, electrifying football player. He may shun the title of cultural spokesman but he knows plenty about fighting the good fight. He was an ambitious ten-year-old when he left Tripoli for a better life in Australia and now he is doing his part, as a Muslim, to earn his people their rightful respect.
