Libya is a country in North Africa that is currently undergoing reconstruction after the ouster of its former leader, Muammar Gaddafi. Its economy is largely dependent on the oil sector, with the commodity accounting for 97 percent of all its exports and 80 percent of its gross domestic product. The country has the largest proven reserves in Africa. It is a major contributor to the supply of light, sweet crude oil to the rest of the world.
Here are scenes/photos of Libya. I am not sure if the photos are an accurate picture of Libya today, after the Revolution that toppled Gaddafi; but as you can see, Libya was or is quite modern, with beautiful scenes, buildings, and architecture.
The only pictures I have seen of Libya are those of Benghazi, taken the night our Ambassador Stevens and three other American heroes died - 9/11/2012.
After listening to Ms. Langhi's speech, I found myself curious enough to see what Libya actually looked like - without the al-Qaeda terrorists waving their guns in the air. Much to my surprise, Libya is a lovely country.
How sad it is to see such beauty and goodness transformed into a world of horror, devastation, hopelessness, due to the embedded hatred of Islamist, who are the cause of 99% of the terrorism in our world today.
Like Zahra', I also pray that "mercy and compassion" shall rest upon the future generations of the citizens of Libya.

What a different picture than the scenes Americans have had to see since last September:
At this point in time, what difference does it make?
