Associated Press: Karen Sloan: 'Liberal Alliance Beat Islamists in Libya Vote'

Source:Associated Press- interviewing a Libyan about their elections.

"Results from Libya's first national election after the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi put a liberal alliance ahead of Islamists, but both sides will woo independents to form a government." 

From the Associated Press

Anytime there is any sign of freedom and democracy breaking out anywhere in the Middle East and Saharan Africa, that's a good sign. This is a region that's been dominated by military dictators, Islamists, and monarchs, for most of its history. And what we might be seeing in Libya today is a sign that major coalition in that country wants to join the rest of the western developed world and not just taste freedom and democracy, but be able to live with it.
