(incomplete) last update May 9
For now a note, a link, and a space for comments. Yarmouk prison inmate, BBC Arabic reporter, proud Palestinian, scholar of buried Shiite clerics and of Gaddafi's general anti-Arab, especially anti-Palestinian secret plots, makes his rounds again in support of the besieged mythology of the Khamis Brigade Shed Massacre. The "most clear-cut war crime" of the whole NATO-backed insurgency is in need of help, and a man who's certain at least that people were held and beaten there like he was, is ready to believe the lying sacks of shit calling themselves witnesses and escapees. Rebel absolution and Gaddafi demonization bureau, Az Zawiayah office, is where Feras was sent.
The BBC News Report
When available, a link to Kilani's fancy movie about this and other places among Libya's Torture Farms" the report presages.
Another prisoner, Bashir al-Sadeq [A BAD AND PROLIFIC FAKER, BUSTED!], was also held in the warehouse and witnessed Tajouri's [Laskhar's?] role in the attack. "Yes, he came inside and emptied more than three magazines," he said. Hussein and Bashir agreed to come with me to face Ibrahim Tajouri for the first time since the massacre.
Bashir confronted Tajouri. "When you entered, you finished off a group which included Sheikh Mohammed Allafi. He was kneeling down and you shot him in the back. That was my brother. "Then you turned and you shot the group which included the Egyptians and the old Palestinian man who was about 80 years old. You emptied nearly four magazines. "You killed Sheikh Ramadhan when you turned towards him and shot him four times - Don't tell me you don't remember." "I don't remember," said Tajouri. "I was under the influence of drugs."
Please tell me that scene is in the movie. How could it not be? We have a transcription already if so.
He wouldn't remember either dragging the body of Imam Musa Al-Sadr from its grave under invisible camels there and torching it along with all else that was holy and/or Arab in nature. Nor does he remember the evil laughs they all shared: "Bwahahahaha! Now the entire Arab/Muslim world shall kneel before our African voodoo Satanic bloodlust! Or unite against us in disgust! Depends who's writing the cartoon! Bwahahaha!"
May 1: No news on video availability, some good thoughts in comments below.
Kilani apparently talked about this the other day on The Fifth Floor, at 12:08 he starts with his March detention and beating at the place. He then relates what he heard from the same inconsistent fabricators we've been studying, starting at 14:49. Hussein speaks, translated, 16:20. His brother told him to run and save himself, and tell the world what totally for real happened. That's why he ran out the back of the hangar. Kilani talks about Tajouri and his "something missing." Yeah, wait 'til you find what! Apparently he will be covering rebel torture of (and killing of and fobbing of blame over?) Tawerghans and other black men. Should be a good show.
Also, searching for the documentary by Arabic title, I found a video I've never seen. It seems Kilani already re-visited the place on or before October 20, in a report that was eclipsed by the lynching of Muammar Gaddafi and many of his top loyalists. It can be seen here, BBC Arabic, posted the 21st: http://www.bbc.co.uk/arabic/middleeast/2011/10/111020_libya_sadr_farm.shtml. It's mostly about Sheikh Al-Sadr, and has an interview with the terrorist warlord of Tripoli Belhaj. So this is the BBC Arabic report cited by the LBC where Belhaj "explains" how this scene of one of his allies' war crimes was in fact the place Al-Sadr was buried and/or dug up and burnt.
Update, May 7: The proper video title: يبيا: أقبية التعذيب Libya(n): Torture Cellars A BBC Arabic article about it And finally some video. On Youtube I find a five-minute segment, posted by MrHimanly on black men - presumably Tawerghans - being mistreated. ليبيا: أقبية التعذيب.الجزء الثا لث. That says part of third, or three. So, in order: first part, 2:30, part II, 14:51, and the third, 5:33
About 23 minutes total. Okay, that can cover a fair amount. The part I want ... doesn't seem to be in there at all, so just links will do instead embedding. Perhaps there's a missing part. Then I happened to click on this, from May 1, which Petri also found independently, already collaging that footage with shed massacre videos in a nice condemnatory way. There's another cut with more footage at the end and less at the beginning. So the video is around...
Seriously, that guy used to be under the influence of drugs but NOW he's all cleaned up, just like Nisreen was? Anyway, yes, this is the footage. Bashir appears around 3:00, with Mr. Al-Lafi and... guess who's accompanied them? Yes indeed, see-through Salem. Saving a copy of that, and will soon post my own remix.
And it hit me slowly what the brother part might mean. As Kilani wrote "Bashir confronted Tajouri. "When you entered, you finished off a group which included Sheikh Mohammed Allafi. He was kneeling down and you shot him in the back. That was my brother."" Not his brother in the sense of sharing the same parents, clearly. Allafi and Sadeq are two different names.
He must mean the man was his spiritual brother as a Libyan, and the other survivor’s brother by family; Allfai is the same name as Al-Lafi, and one of Hussein’s brothers was named Mohammed (52), perished with a missing leg. Apparently he was also a sheikh, and as Kilani relates, Hussein said that Mohammed told him to “Run away, save yourself, and go tell the world that we've been slaughtered.” Then somehow he did just that. The video suggests what Kilani says, that this is Bashir’s line. I’ll need to look into making doubly sure he says that. He is the main one speaking the whole time, so he almost must be.
Presuming so, is he making a point of calling Hussein’s brother his own in spirit, or did he grab the wrong script? If the latter, doesn’t he remember by now he’s the one called Al-Sedik/Sadeq/Germani/Bashir? Does a look of dread cross Hussein's face as Bashir speaks his lines? Is it really so difficult, even with coach Salem, to keep these things in line?
May 9: My sometimes translator clears this up - "that was my brother" is spoken by Hussein, briefly, as Bashir points to him. The rest is said by Bashir, and Kilani just got it muddled together. Anywhere else, I'd presume a mix-up like this, but Bashir is just enough of a clown I could see him doing this just to be weird. Also, as I wondered, "sheikh" isn't likely literal here; it's sometimes used as a sign of respect for an older person, like a father or a martyred older brother.
