Libya’s Lesson: Extremism Begets Extremismposted on September 13, 2012
At The Huffington Post, Ahmed Shihab-Eldin questions how America’s role in the Middle East, which many in that region understand as more occupation than liberation, will change due to the recent spate of anti-American violence. “I am compelled to promote tolerance, even as we try to understand the reasons we have lost an Ambassador in Libya. After all, as we saw with the unfolding events, extremism begets extremism,” Shihab-Eldin writes.
