In the merciless struggle since the fall of the dictator that has pitted the assassins of cities and their supporters, the urbiciders and the local citizens, it is the latter, the civilized citizen city-dwellers, who have marked the decisive point -- and that, also, is irrevocable.

The crisis created by the film The Innocence of Muslims that many feared might spin out of control seems to be subsiding across the Arab World. The appeal by extremists to escalate the situation appears to have given way to more stable and thoughtful leadership.

While Americans have every right to be as angry and confused as they were on September 12, 2001, they also have the duty to be introspective and measured before acting or speaking, as they never were in the aftermath of 9/11.

My Reaction to President Obama's Response to the Incidents in Egypt, Libya and Elsewhere

President Obama on a number of occasions has publicly stated, "I have Israel's back." I don't know what that means in practice. I believe he should publicly state that an attack by Iran on Israel would be considered an attack on the U.S.

So what can we do while dwelling in shades of blue? First, we can remember that feeling grief is a natural and normal response that honors the very vibrancy of human life, the loss of which we mourn.

But if we are unyielding champions for freedom of expression, do we not also have a responsibility as a society to ask how are we using that freedom? Is it OK that Terry Jones and "Sam Bacile" are our ambassadors?

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington

This week saw the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. It also saw Mitt Romney's reaction to the tragic events, which was to the 2012 campaign what John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin was to 2008 -- the kind of desperate act that makes even one's allies worry about their candidate's fitness to lead. It's a bell that cannot be unrung. The week also brought word that over 46 million Americans remained below the poverty line last year, while a new study found that poverty is "nearly invisible in U.S. media coverage of the 2012 election." When you have 46 million people living in poverty and neither the candidates nor the media want to talk about it, you know the American Dream is in serious trouble.
