Quote: 'This Does Not Represent Us': Moving Photos of Pro-American Rallies in Libya
Just like not all Americans are like the people who made the weird anti-Islam movie that is sparking protests in Muslim nations, not all people in Libya are like the ones who killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens. Some of the people of Benghazi, where Stevens was killed, held a demonstration against terrorism and to show sympathy for the U.S. Libya Alhurra TV, an Internet TV channel founded at the start of the Arab Spring in 2011, posted Facebook photos of a rally there showing support for America and sympathy for Stevens. Here are some of those pictures (for some reason, despite being jpegs, you'll have to click on them to see them (dammit!)):
In the photo above, the sign held by the man on the far left says "No to al Qaeda, no to violence, this is a youth revolution." The middle one says, "No No No to Al Qaeda." The sign held by the boy on the right is hard to read at this angle, but says something against killing.
The Arabic phrase below "Islam against terrorism" says "No to violence." That's on a lot of the signs.
Twitter user @2011feb17 says these photos are from a counter-protest in Algeria square in Tripoli:
Quote: M. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and author of the book A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot's Fight to Save His Faith said that the attacks in Libya are "nothing short of pure evil and in no way representative of the teachings and practices of the faith of Islam." "These crowds are using the movie as an excuse to wreak violence on Americans in Libya and Egypt," Jasser said. "To most Muslims, these excuses for violence that ultimately, even if they are offending or violating a tradition of the prophet, in no way justify any of these types of activities."
Quote:Libya's leaders apologized for the attack, with Prime Minister Abdurrahim el-Keib calling it a "cowardly, criminal act." http://articles.cnn.com/2012-09-12/africa/world_africa_libya-us-ambassador-killed_1_benghazi-ali-suleiman-aujali-libyan-ambassador
