Ansur al Sharia (Guardians of Sharia) is believed to have been involved in the military assault on the US consulate in Benghazi on 9/11 that killed four Americans including Ambassador Christtopher Steven. The Iranian government Press TV video shows a (very) armed demonstration in Benghazi in early June 2012 by Ansur al Sharia to demand a sharia state. As the correspondent sums up: "Libyan Islamic groups who played a major role in the revolution that unseated dictator Muamar Qaddafi were severely repressed under his rule. They believe that the revolution was started as part of the jihad against God's enemies and that process is ongoing until the country is totally and utterly liberated from non-Islamic values."
A decent summary of the scene, despite the source.
Why can't John McCain get it through his head?
