Hearing about Tuesday's attacks in Libya motivated a Lincoln man to take action by writing President Obama.
Dear President Obama:
Please accept my condolences for the death of His Excellency Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens - the United States Ambassador to Libya, along with other Americans as a result of senseless violence committed by a rogue group of armed Libyans supposedly in the name of Islam. As an American of Libyan origin, I deplore this act of violence and cowardice in the strongest possible terms. This has been especially painful because many of us who follow current and recent events in Libya, and have cheered the Libyan people onto the path of freedom from tyranny, know that Ambassador Stevens was not only a skilled and effective diplomat, but he was also a great friend of Libya. Further, it is truly saddening that violence by ill-informed individuals is used again in the name of Islam. While we mourn the death of innocent people, I hope that the United States' enthusiastic support of the cause of freedom and liberty in Libya does not become another victim of the violence.
With greatest regards,
Mohamed F. Dahab, Ph.D., P.E.
