A Muslim American Reflects on the Benghazi Attack
Tuesday's attack on a U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya has shocked many Americans. And that often puts Muslim Americans in the difficult position of fielding questions from friends about why? As Amanda Mouttaki, a blogger at Multicultural Familia writes, she doesn't have any answers.
It never fails. Whenever something happens in the world by those who believe they are “protecting” Islam, I am bombarded with questions by fellow Americans about why. I wish that I had an answer. Today was no different. There is no reason; there is no excuse for the behavior that has been exhibited in Egypt and Libya by a handful of thugs hell-bent on causing damage. If only they would step back and realize how their actions are more damaging than the ideas they are arguing against.
