Libya Doesn't Need Foreign Intervention
Abdel Hakim Belhaj, The Guardian
The despicable murder of the US ambassador in Benghazi was a horrific shock to Libyans, as it was to Americans.
In the first few hours following the killing, all the political parties in Libya, without exception or hesitation, condemned the act. The president of the national congress, Dr Mohammed Maqrif, offered a heartfelt apology to the US for what happened and promised to pursue the perpetrators.
We are fully aware that this despicable hate film, Innocence of Muslims, does not reflect the American people's views, and that the producers of this film are an extremist minority.
