Violence in the Middle East

Following the death in Libya of  U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, and an attack on the U.S. Embassy, the media, like in  any disaster whether natural or man-made, is once again focusing on the worst situations - a group of protesters in Egypt and Yemen. This gives the impression that all people in the Middle East are against America. Just as we in America do not necessarily agree with what was on the video, which may or may not have sparked the violence, nor are we as a whole against Muslims, the same goes for Libya and other countries and their feelings toward Americans.  Below are pictures from Libya.

well said. It's a shame if people don't read and study a variety of news and materials to get a rounded perspective. I also think travel anywhere broadens horizons - helps folks to realize that the grand majority of people in this world are trying to live, raise a family, stay out of trouble, and are peace loving and good.

I agree Joanne. My family is fortunate that we have a diverse group of friends from different cultures and nationalities and they tend to put things into perspective for us when something comes on the news from overseas.
