You may have seen this story in the Huffington Post:

Libya Embassy Attack: Libyan President Orders 'Illegitimate' Militias Disbanding 


But perhaps of greater importance is the following:

"The assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, which left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead, has sparked an angry backlash among many Libyans against the myriad of armed factions that continue to run rampant across the nation nearly a year after the end of the country's civil war.
On Friday, residents of Benghazi – the cradle of the Libyan revolution last year that toppled dictator Moammar Gadhafi – staged a mass demonstration against the militias before storming the compounds of several armed groups in the city in an unprecedented protest to demand the militias dissolve."

Here we have the average citizen, REAL MUSLIMS, saying no to violence. One Muslim business leader on NPR said that the killing of innocent people is much more of an affront to Islam than "any video or silly cartoon." Clearly a voice of reason and clearly one who follows the teachings and not radicals seeking to create and spread hate and fear.

Thank you people of Benghazi!
