As violence, reportedly sparked by an incendiary video degrading the Prophet Muhammad and produced in the U.S., spreads from North Africa to the Middle East, and U.S. warships head for Libya in response to what may have been a coordinated terrorist attack, many ordinary Libyans are hoping to send a very different message to the world: one of peace and solidarity. Yesterday, citizens gathered in Benghazi to speak for themselves, holding bilingual signs with messages like, “This does not represent us.”
