Ramadan kareem, and a short break

First and foremost Ramadan kareem to everyone =) We hope that this will be a bless month for all of you. A month of reflection, forgiveness and mercy.

For personal reasons we will be taking a short break from updating the website, for about 2-3 days. Lately it became rather difficult for us to maintain the website, so we’ve decided that perhaps it’s best to take a few days off altogether before starting afresh.

We’ll be back soon! =)

    Libya War Lies Worse Than Iraq

    By Thomas Mountain

    The lies used to justify the NATO war against Libya have surpassed those created to justify the invasion of Iraq. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch both had honest observers on the ground for months following the rebellion in eastern Libya and both have repudiated every major charge used to justify the NATO war on Libya.

    According to the Amnesty observer, who is fluent in Arabic, there is not one confirmed instance of rape by the pro-Gadaffi fighters, not even a doctor who knew of one. All the Viagra mass rape stories were fabrications.

    Amnesty could not verify a single “African mercenary” fighting for Gaddafi story, and the highly charged international satellite television accounts of African mercenaries raping women that were used to panic much of the eastern Libyan population into fleeing their homes were fabrications.

    There were no confirmed accounts of helicopter gun ships attacking civilians and no jet fighters bombing people which completely invalidates any justification for the No-Fly Zone inSecurity Council resolution used as an excuse for NATO to launch its attacks on Libya.

    After three months on the ground in rebel controlled territory, the Amnesty investigator could only confirm 110 deaths in Benghazi which included Gadaffi supporters.

    Only 110 dead in Benghazi? Wait a minute, we were told thousands had died there, ten thousand even. No, only 110 lost their lives including pro-government people.

    No rapes, no African mercenaries, no helicopter gun ships or bombers, and only 110 ten deaths prior to the launch of the NATO bombing campaign, every reason was based on a lie.

    Today according to the Libyan Red Crescent Society, over 1,100 civilians have been killed by NATO bombs including over 400 women and children. Over 6,000 Libyan civilians have been injured or wounded by the bombing, many very seriously.

    Compared to the war on Iraq, these numbers are tiny, but the reasons for the Libyan war have no merit in any form.

    In Egypt and Tunisia, western puppets like Mubarak and Ben Ali had almost no support amongst their people with few if anyone willing to fight and die to defend them.

    The majority of the Libyan people are rallying behind the Libyan government and “the leader”, Muammar Gadaffi, with over one million people demonstrating in support on July 1 in Tripoli, the capital of Libya. Thousands of Libyan youth are on the front lines fighting the rebels and despite thousands of NATO air strikes authentic journalists on the ground in western Libya report their morale remains high.

    In Egypt the popular explosion that resulted in the Army seizing power from Mubarak began in the very poorest neighborhoods in Cairo and other Egyptian cities where the price of basic food items like bread, sugar and cooking oil had skyrocketed and lead to widespread hunger. In many parts of Egypt’s poor neighborhoods gasoline/benzene is easier to find then clean drinking water. Medical care and education is only for those with the money to pay for it. Life for the people of Tunisia is not that much better.

    In contrast, the Libyan people have the longest life expectancy in the Arab world. The Libyan people have the best, free public health system in the Arab world. The Libyan people have the best, free public education system in the Arab world. Most Libyan families own their own home and most Libyan families own their own automobile. Libya is so much better off then its neighbors every year tens of thousands of Egyptians and Tunisians migrated to Libya to earn money to feed their families, doing the dirty work the Libyan people refused to do.

    When it comes to how Gadaffi oversaw a dramatic rise in the standard of living for the Libyan people despite decades of UN inSecurity Council sanctions against the Libyan economy honest observers acknowledge that Gadaffi stands head and shoulders above the kings, sheiks, emirs and various dictators who rule the rest of the Arab world.

    So why did NATO launch this war against Libya?

    First of all Gadaffi was on the verge of creating a new banking system in Africa that was going to put the IMF, World Bank and assorted other western banksters out of business in Africa. No more predatory western loans used to cripple African economies, instead a $42 billion dollar African Investment Bank would be supplying major loans at little or even zero interest rates.

    Libya has funded major infrastructure projects across Africa that have begun to link up African economies and break the perpetual dependency on the western countries for imports have been taking place. Here in Eritrea the new road connecting Eritrea and Sudan is just one small example.

    What seem to have finally tipped the balance in favor of direct western military intervention was the reported demand by Gadaffi that the USA oil companies who have long been major players in the Libyan petroleum industry were going to have to compensate Libya to the tune of tens of billions of dollars for the damage done to the Libyan economy by the USA instigated “Lockerbie Bombing” sanctions imposed by the UN inSecurity Council throughout the 1990’s into early 2000’s. This is based on the unearthing of evidence that the CIA paid millions of dollars to witnesses in the Lockerbie Bombing trial to change their stories to implicate Libya which was used as the basis for the very damaging UN sanctions against Libya. The government of the USA lied and damaged Libya so the USA oil companies were going to have to pay up to cover the cost of their governments actions. Not hard to see why Gadaffi had to go isn’t it?

    Add the fact that Gadaffi had signaled clearly that he saw both Libya’s and Africa’s future economic development linked more to China and Russia rather than the west and it was just a matter of time before the CIA’s contingency plan to overthrow the Libyan government was put on the front burner.

    NATO’s war against Libya has much more in common with NATO’s Kosovo war against Serbia. But one still cannot compare Gadaffi to Saddam or even the much smaller time criminals in the Serbian leadership. The Libyan War lies are worse than Iraq.

    A month of reflection – I am sure you are reflecting well on how you got your country were it is and how you ended supporting people bent on destroying your country.

    A month of forgiveness – You are all Libyans who have been fooled by Western propaganda machinery. You have been led by puppets trained by their agencies. Once you realize your mistakes your next move is to work towards correcting them. You are all childs of Libya and Libya has a big heart to forgive those who truly regret their deeds

    Month of Mercy – Ask Allah Karim to forgive you for the deaths you have caused, for the lives you have destroyed, for the heartaches you have caused, for the lies you have spread. Keep praying and Inshallah…

    Wishing you a well rested break and a happy and peaceful Ramadan 🙂

  15. Fredy says:

    I don’t know if it’s soon to celebrate but I think we got Zliten. YEAH !

    Libya rebels take Zlitan as RAF clears way after two-month struggle
    Bombing campaign destroys Gaddafi tanks, rocket launchers, ammunition dumps and command .

    After dozens of freedom fighters were killed and many more were wounded in an eight week battle, Zliten is finally in control of the opposition.


    This win is heroic. It proves the Misratans needed to do much of the job.

    Happy Ramadan.

  16. Mohammad says:

    Brother, Kul ‘am wa antum bikhair

    May this Ramadan brings true happiness and comfort for all innocent Libyans… Ameen!

  17. patriot says:

    About time you took a break. I am sure you are embarrased that the Western media was able to fool you into supporting this plan of theirs. Its not too late to repent.

    These are killers that would look for ANY reason to kill people they consider not falling for their tricks. They preach democracy in the form of “YOU ARE EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US”

    Read below to understand the level of desperation they have reached:

    “Nato has attacked a Libyan state broadcaster in the capital, bombing three satellite dishes in Tripoli, saying the channel instils hatred.” — ‘Libya unrest: Nato bombs state broadcaster‘, BBC News 30 July 2011

    At first when I heard this I couldn’t believe my ears. What a pathetic excuse for killing people but then desperate times demand desperate measures. The Empire is in disarray!

    According to the NATO spokesman Colonel Roland Lavoie the bombings were necessary because,

    “…[Libyan state television] was being used as an integral component of the regime apparatus designed to systematically oppress and threaten civilians and to incite attacks against them,”


    “Striking specifically these critical satellite dishes will reduce the regime’s ability to oppress civilians while at the same time preserving television broadcast infrastructure that will be needed after the conflict,” he said.” — ‘Nato airstrikes hit Libyan state TV as regime taunts Britain‘, Daily Telegraph, 30 July 2011

    So what is the state broadcaster alleged to be saying? ‘Go out and kill your fellow Libyans’? ‘Oppress them with words and pictures’? Aside from the ludicrous assertion made by these NATO halfwits it reveals a desperate Empire now caught between a rock and a hard place as the ‘rebels’ fall out and kill their military leader. And where is the proof of the allegations that Libyan TV “oppress[es] and threaten[s] civilians”? This is the same civilian population that Gaddafi distributed 1 million AK-47s to so you’d think it would be the Libyans themselves shooting up Libyan state TV if NATO’s asinine allegations had any truth to them.

    Of course Libyan TV broadcasts propaganda, that’s part of its function just like the BBC or any other state controlled broadcaster. I have referred before to the BBC’s glorification of war with its numerous video promos of ‘our boys and girls’ bombing the defenceless of the world.

    ‘The BBC’s Tim Willcox takes a look at a tank destroyed in recent air strikes near the Libyan town of Ajdabiya.’ — ‘VIDEO: How air strikes destroy Libyan tanks‘, BBC Website, 4 April 2011

    According to NATO’s assessment the BBC should also be Tomahawked for inciting the population to support the bombing and terrorizing of the Libyan people.

    And I venture to say that the timing of the attempt to silence Libya’s electronic media is in part a response to the rebels assassination of its own military leader Younes and the excellent PR it gave the Libyan state. The Telegraph article summed it up its headline when it wrote that the Libyan “regime taunts Britain”.

    Yet another embarrassing multi-million dollar failure, paid for by us, the other bunch of halfwits. The airstrikes failed to silence Libyan tv transmissions which have continued virtually without a break. So where to now Pirates of the Mediterranean?
