Thousands of Muslims from 5 continents write letters condemning attacks, honor slain U.S. ambassador

They don't all hate us or want to see us dead ...

'Celebrate Mercy': After Libya Attack, Muslim Condolence-Letter Campaign For Slain Ambassador's Family Goes Viral

From the piece: 

el Messidi told WATE.com that the goal of the campaign had initially been to encourage 1,000 people to send online condolences to Stevens' family. Within two days, however, that number was increased to 5,000.

And now, Celebrate Mercy says, even that goal has been smashed.

According to a press release published on Wednesday by the non-profit Muslim group, over 7,000 letters have been sent from 110 countries in eleven days and more continue to be sent out "at a rate of one letter every two minutes."

The organization says it has received letters from Muslims "spanning five continents," including many Libyans and Libyan-Americans.
