Ismail Kamoka & the LIFG

by Felix

May 14 2012

So, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, former leader of the LIFG, is going to sue former UK foreign Secretary Jack Straw as reported by the Telegraph, 24 April 2012,[ See also Guardian, April 18 2012:Belhaj and his wife (Fatima Bouchar)....are seeking damages from Straw for the trauma they suffered] This is the same Libyan Islamic Fighting Group which, was trying to murder national head of state Gaddafi [see below] possibly using either UK or US taxpayers' money, or both but naturally deniable and denied. Certainly it was linked to Al Qaeda and as such was a proscribed organisation. But then it might must be part of the closed circle of secrecy which keeps us all in a state of perpetual fear.

Mary Fitzgerald of the Irish Times, among whose readership is no doubt Dublin based (sometimes) Mahdi Al-Harati, puts us in the picture:

MaryFitzgerlT Mary Fitzgerald
#Libya's Islamist parties: MB-linked Justice & Construction; ex-LIFG have split between Hizb al-Watan (w/ Belhaj) + Hizb al-Umma (w/ Saadi)1:34 PM May 2nd 2012

[NB Saadi = Sami Al-Saadi]
[The Justice & Construction Party formed by Islamists and Independents elected its leader as reported in the Tripoli Post of March 3 2012, Mohammed Sawan ( Mohamed Sowan) from Misrata, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, formerly detained under Gaddafi but released in 2006 and who expected women to play "a prominent role". "We have created a new era in Libya by electing a party leader democratically," said Khalil Sawalim, a UK-based rights activist. The LIFG merged with Al-Qaeda in November 2007

A member of the LIFG broke cover in early March 2011 to speak to Press TV's Yvonne Ridley and Afshin Rattansi: Ismail Kamoka. He was briefly in the news after the fall of Tripoli when the files of the Jamahiriya were opened up, allegedly. Since then he has disappeared.
For the record I have captured his quite unremarkable interview here with the announced "dissident and leading member of the LIFG, Ismail Kamoka. For a leading member, he keeps a low profile, difficult though with the huge bushy beard. [photo]

Ridley introduced Kamoka and his lifelong hobby thus: "....he's been committed to overthrowing Gaddafi for nearly 20 years...
"you must really want to be in Libya at the moment. Tell us about the nature of the opposition in Libya"
"There are 4 or 5 groups as far as I know [note - it seems to crop up no 26 of 27 opposition groups here in Feb 2011] .I was with one of these groups,its called the Libyan Fighting group (sic). The main aim for this group before before [is] to take, the specific one, they try many times to assassinate Gaddafi. The reason for that one is to give freedom for the people [when] decided for themselves what they are going to do because the regime in that time is very brutal and Gaddafi is a dictator."
"What did you feel about how Tony Blair,[and] the west were becomeing friends with the person you were trying to assassinate?" "I think I felt very angry because Tony Blair himself tried to have a good "relation" [ship] with Libya for one reason, for the benefit of his country . He doesn't care about the benefit of Libyan people."
"But what about life after Gaddafi? This is something that everybody is focussing on at the moment. Are these groups that are in Libya and of course dissidents like yourself - are you capable of forming a government and taking Libya ahead into the new phase?" "I think so. The Libyan people they are capable they have very high(ly) qualified people" "But what has been the price been so far for this freedom, there is talk of 1000s of peole injured more than a thousand dead?" "We feel very sad about this price but if you read the history,if you want the freedom the freedom doesn't come easy"
"So they don't want the king back, but Gaddafi and his sons are saying there will be Al Qaeda in Libya ,the Islamic extremists will take over even while he talks about Omar al Mukhtar at the same time. Did you feel while watching his speech...? "I think when I (heard) this speech they try to play this game with the people because the first part they tried to play on the fears of the people and with this fears it provoked the people to come out and in the uprising everyone doesn't care even he would like to die for his own country. They changed their tactics, they changed their new game they tried to play with Islamic extremism. They will come and take over something like that. In reality, the main point is now we need the regime gone, we need Gaddafi to get out.
"How frustruating is it for you sittng in London? Are you tempted to go out and join the people in this revolution?" "My heart is there since 15 February. I tried to help my country, my people 20 years ago. I feel this is the time now for me for everybody that is outside to be there because we have been waiting for this a long time"

Perhaps the preferred destination of NATO is the descent of Libya and the rest of of the Mediterranean rim into an Islamic Ice Age

Mr Kamoka (the name seems local to Pakistan, rather than Libya, but then these LIFG types are very well travelled with many interesting visas in their passports and many aliases as well. Indeed Mr K also seems to have an alias) has gone to ground again and he registers no presence in 2012, indeed no presence in Libya in 2011. Perhaps he never went.

Former LIFG member Numan Ben Othman or Noman Benotman is based in London and now embedded as a senior researcher with the Quilliam Foundation "challenging extremism". Limited hangout information from early 2005 on the LIFG here on the Centre for Defense Inforation site : In the Spotlight: The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG)

On October 15 2009, Islamisation Watch noted (captured AFP report) that:
Libya on Thursday freed 88 Islamists and announced it will demolish Abu Slim prison, notorious for what human rights groups say was a 1996 massacre in which more than 1,000 prisoners were killed.
The Islamists with Al-Qaeda links walked out of the Tripoli prison, an AFP correspondent at the scene reported.
The Kadhafi Foundation, headed by Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's son Seif al-Islam, confirmed the planned closure of Abu Slim, saying the remaining inmates would be transferred to another jail.
The building "will be destroyed in the next few days," a Libyan source told AFP, adding that a residential district and a green space would replace the prison, which has often been used to detain political prisoners.... The Foundation, in a joint statement with lawyers' groups, said: "45 members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and 43 members of other jihadist groups were freed" from Abu Slim on Thursday.
"Apart from the LIFG members, the other people freed were former Al-Qaeda members who were active in Afghanistan or Iraq," Saleh Saleh Abdessalem, an aide to Seif al-Islam, told AFP
According to Abu Hashem, his nom-de-guerre, the release programme followed "talks with Seif al-Islam through the intermediary of (Libyan cleric) Ali Sallabi."
The Kadhafi Foundation said it is "working to strengthen peace in Libya," emphasising the "big success" of the dialogue with the LIFG, formed in secret in Afghanistan in the early 1990s and which came to public notice in 1995 when it launched an armed campaign against Kadhafi's regime.

Al-Qaeda announced in November 2007 that the LIFG had joined the jihadist network. The men's release comes at a time when Seif al-Islam is reportedly being proposed for Libya's second most

HRW duly reported this the following day with calls for more releases (of people whose mission was to assassinate Gaddafi).

Note on the LIFG from Amnesty International,June 2010 report, "Libya of Tomorrow - what hope for human rights"
In recent years there have been some welcome developments. Hundreds of members of al- Jama’a al-Islamiya al-Muqatila (the Libyan Islamic Fighting Front, LIFG) and other groups,many of whom had been held arbitrarily for years, have been released.
The releases were reportedly facilitated by the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation (Gaddafi Development Foundation, GDF) headed by Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi, son of the Libyan leader.50 For several years, the GDF engaged in a dialogue with leaders of the LIFG, which contributed to the group publicly renouncing violence in 2009.
The latest releases took place in March 2010. According to Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi, among those released were 80 individuals cleared by courts, 100 individuals accused of involvement in terrorism-related activities with armed groups in Iraq and 34 members of the LIFG, including several who had been returned from secret detention by the US authorities.
However, the Secretary of the General People’s Committee for Justice (equivalent to the Minister of Justice), estimated that more than 300 individuals were arbitrarily detained by the ISA at the beginning of 2010.
This means that more than 200 individuals were still detained arbitrarily according to official estimates after the release of 80 individuals cleared by courts in March 2010.
Real numbers are believed to be higher, given that this estimate does not include those detained after unfair trials or prisoners of conscience.

Note 15: In the late 1990s, several of the surviving members of the LIFG were believed to have fled to various countries in Europe, Asia and the Gulf. The LIFG was designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in December 2004 by the US Department of State.
The US Country Report on Terrorism of 2008 states that some members of the LIFG had links with the international terrorist movement and that some were believed to be part of the al-Qa’ida leadership. US forces captured a number of Libyan nationals suspected of belonging to the LIFG in Pakistan and transferred several of them to Libya after 2004.

In 2010, the US Govt listed LIFG as a " Foreign Terrorist Organization".
Mr Kamoka was one of five LIFG members arrested in police swoops in the UK. [however, in August 2003,we read courtesy of the Institute of Race Relations,: Found in possession of £6,000. Sun newspaper reported that he was being held under ATCSA at Belmarsh and that police believed the money was for the purposes of terrorism., an interesting case of a tabloid newspaper citation]On 9/11 2011, it was announced that two of them, Mr Kamoka had also become litigious : "Mr Kamoka plans to sue Britain for detaining him under control orders." (lifted in 2009)

Note on the Quilliam Foundation.
This foundation was set up with British taxpayers' money by Tony Blair and Jack Straw ***, with the ostensible purpose of "watching" other jihadis operating under the wings of MI6. Benotman renounced his jihadi image and worked on behalf of Britain, securing release from the present Libyan government, the National Transitional Council, of 600 former activists from prison, arguing for this on the basis of the role that the LIFG played at the frontline to remove the Qaddafi regime.

PS Is Mr Kamoka getting younger by the day? Compare the photo seen at this June 11 2007 BBC article, Three Jailed over terror funding with the one above. Or does he dye his bushy beard? *** These are the guys Belhaj is going to sue. These are the guys who set up the Quilliam Foundation. These are the guys who wanted a rapprochement with Gadafi who set up the Quilliam Foundation which employs Benotman who belonged to the LIFG whose mission was not rapprochement but assassination of Gaddafi...Go figure. But Belhaj actually doesn't want to sue them any more, he just wants an apology. Like one does. Because he now has his own political party.
7/7/2012 Something I missed - Al Qaeda LIFG leader Abdul Belhaj writes column for Guardian! [Land Destroyer Sept 27 2011] by Tony Cartalucci "However, Mr. Belhaj has had time, apparently, allegedly, to draft a lengthy editorial titled, "The revolution belongs to all Libyans, secular or not," gladly published by the London Guardian [CiF], [The revolution belongs to all Libyans, secular or not] where he is allowed to go on at length, whitewashing what is essential a life-long career in terrorism and expound the merits of the wholesale mass murder he and his cohorts, under NATO cover, are committing against the Libyan people" No comment needed.
Update 19 Aug 2012
A blog which seems interested in the LIFG, Harati & Co:
The Flower Throwers


  1. This is great, man!I have to admit I only skimmed it, but it's clearly a solid contribution to understanding how the imperialists have selectively used the same terrorist elements it othwerwise purports to oppose.

    The LIFG needs more study. including their recent name change to drop "fighting" just as they took up fighting again. Taking tips from Blackwater and the School of the Americas? What are they now that they're slicing off heads across Libya? The Libyan Islamic Hopey-Changey Foundation? It's something like that.

  2. Abdullah Mansour (left) and Abdul Monem al-Madhouni, of the governing council of the (LIFG) Libyan Islamic Fighting Group


  3. Mohamed al-Allagi, the chairman of the human rights committee of the Gaddafi Foundation

    3:40pm Mohammed Ibrahin al-Ellagi, a former secretary general of the Libyan Human Rights Society, and newly appointed justice minister in the Libyan transitional national council, tells Al Jazeera that there is a possible "conspiracy" to be seen in the fact that NATO and allied troops have not bombarded Gaddafi positions in Misurata and Az Zintan in the same way that they did in Benghazi.

    Mohammed al-Alagi, justice minister for rebels' National Transitional Council,
    Libya grants immunity to‘revolutionaries’
    Mohammed al-Alagi, justice minister for rebels' NTC:Libya grants immunity to‘revolutionaries’

    ”They are not the military, they are only ordinary people,” al-Alagi said. While he acknowledged that rebels have made mistakes, he said they cannot be described as ”war crimes at all.”

    Mohamed al-Allagi : These releases come in the context of national reconciliation and social peace,” adding, as AFP reported, that ”these people had completed their rehabilitation program, which was aimed at getting the prisoners to renounce violence and reintegrate them into Libyan society.”

    Although over 300 prisoners “accused of having ties to Islamist militant groups” are still imprisoned, al-Allagi also explained that the foundation was “working to free the other detainees so that there will no longer be any prisoners of opinion in Libya.”


    Belhadj, one of three significant LIFG figures released in March, along with “military chief” Khaled Sharif and “ideological official” Sami Saadi (as AFP described them) also said that the rest of the prisoners released on Tuesday had been detained “because they sympathized with Islamist militant movements, but were not LIFG members.”

  4. Abdullah Mansour (a.k.a. Abdulbasit Abdulrahim), who was described in his 2008 terrorist designation by the U.S. Department of the Treasury as “one of the most important LIFG members working on LIFG finances in the UK, where the greatest amount of funding for the LIFG originated,” has written a letter published by al-Hayat in which he commented publicly for the first time on the reconciliation talks (Dar al-Hayat, June 11). [1]
    The importance of Mansour's position stems from his “religious credibility” - he was responsible for the LIFG’s Islamic Jurisprudence Committee while based in Saudi Arabia in the 1990s.

    Mansour considers a hand-written letter sent from prison in March by the Amir of the LIFG, Abu Abdullah al-Sadeq, as proof that the talks are serious (oealibya.com, March 12).  According to Mansour, the letter makes clear that the leadership of the LIFG has pledged “to renounce the method of military confrontation with the regime and to do a revision of its literature and its past policies” (al-Hayat, June 11).

    Mansour defends the methods of the LIFG in the 1990s, saying the group had no option but to use violence. He also states that, despite its pledge to support other Islamic groups, the LIFG refused to join with Bin Laden in his “Global Jihad” because the group always considered establishing an Islamic Libyan state as its aim (making it a local rather than global jihad).

    1. the Amir of the LIFG, Abu Abdullah al-Sadeq :

      The CNN report also identifies Al-Amin Belhaj,
      a leader in the UK Muslim Brotherhood, as a leading figure in the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood  who has recently traveled to Libya.

      An earlier post discussed Mr. Belhaj when he became the new president of the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) noting that a U.K academic report on North African immigrants and their links to terrorist organizations identified Dr. Belhaj as the leader of the Libyan Islamic Group in the UK and the Head of the Tunisian Islamic Front (TIF).

      The U.S. State Department has identified the Libyan Islamic Group as the Libyan branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) had for many years been the most active organization in the U.K Muslim Brotherhood.

      Many of the leaders of the MAB left in 2007 to form the British Muslim Initiative (BMI).

      According to an Israeli think-tank report, the breakup appeared to be the result of a conflict between traditionalists in the MAB who were unhappy with the high level of involvement in U.K left-wing politics while those who who formed the BMI wished such activity to continue.

      Anas Al-Tikriti, the leader of the BMI, and former MAB official, is the son of Omar Al-Tikriti, one of the leaders of the Iraqi Islamic Party representing the Muslim Brotherhood in that country.

    2. http://www.groundreport.com/Politics/Does-the-USA-bring-up-new-Bin-Laden/2948383

      It is hardly possible to find more impressive example than the most influential Islamite in Libya Abdelhakim Belhaj who is right-hand man of al-Qaeda ideological leader Ayman al-Zawahiri and head of the terrorist organization, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG is the North African wing of al-Qaeda, forbidden by the United Nations, the USA and European Union), and also one of leaders of revolt against Gaddaffi.

      Now al-Qaeda leaders having full support of the Allies in the name of the USA and other “sponsors of the Libyan revolution” actively promote a nominee of “bearer of democratic ideas” Belhaj on key post of the Libyan Minister of Interior.

  5. Thanks Hurriya - it's a very complex field. I get the feeling that Gaddafi's son Saif Al-Islam might also be part of it! In which case there isn't going to be a trial ever ever,any more than Blair, Straw and co. are going to end up in court.

  6. @ felix : don't think so, the man hasn't seen daylight for months now on the mountain top at Zintan.

    Sick rumours for justify next killings are spreading again :
    The assertion from the anonymous individual close to the Supreme Security Committee that Khamis is still alive, also included the information that he has been in constant touch with his brother Saadi Qaddafi, who is currently in the Niger capital Niamey. The two are supposed to be plotting to undermine security in Libya. The source also claimed that a number of Khamis’ associates had been arrested and that Libya security forces would intervene “at the right time.”

    Really fascinating reflections on Saif al-Islam Gaddafi and his time at the #LSE:

    1. More nonsense from the archives in Tripoli, Sept 9 2011, duly reported by the Guardian:
      Saif al-Islam Gaddafi 'protected from assassination plot in 2004' by UK police Metropolitan police and special branch placed Gaddafi's son on 'at risk' register in 2004 after plot to kill him was uncovered.

      So who else would have been wanting to kill him than, perhaps the LIFG? intelligence was uncovered about an apparent plot to have him killed.

      So, we have to burst open the vaults in Tripoli to find out what is going on in London?? Scotland Yard refused to comment on the threat to Gaddafi.
      Of course. Credeibility is stretched to its limit.

      The LSE is however well connected to MI6 - Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh studied at the LSE owhere he was recruited by MI6 according to ex-President Musharraf. Sir Mark Allen is on the advisory board of the LSE’s centre for the study of international affairs.

      As I said, a complex old business.

    2. British intelligence and Scotland Yard were involved in an international operation to protect Saif al-Islam, the son of Muammar Gaddafi, from an Islamist plot to assassinate him on British soil, secret files discovered by The Independent have revealed.

      The British intelligence services suspected that the plot was linked to Qatar, currently the West's foremost Arab ally against the Libyan regime.

      Arab League supports Libya's hosting of trial of Saif al-Islam, son of former Libya leader, in defiance of ICC request.
      “He will be tried for rape, murder, corruption, and we expect him to be tried and a verdict rendered before the upcoming elections in mid-June,” National Transitional Council spokesman Mohamed al-Hareizi told reporters in Tripoli

    3. Questions about documents :
      In among the hundreds of documents left abandoned when Tripoli fell into the hands of rebel forces were two relating to Saif al-Islam Gaddafi. Although it is impossible to be sure the files are genuine, there has been no attempt to challenge their authenticity by western governments or intelligence services.

      Twelve months ago, a few days after the start of the Libyan revolution, I posed the following question on Professor Robert Black’s Lockerbie blog: ‘What’s the betting that, sometime in the next few weeks, the following happens: 1) In the burned out ruins of a Libyan government building, someone finds definitive documentary ‘proof’ that Libya and Megrahi were responsible for Lockerbie;

    4. great link about Lockerbie - thanks. Just reading about Shamis' other interjection last year re WPC Fletcher - Channel 4 video linked in this blog post by the Antagonist. At about 1.35. "from a very reliable source". BS.

  7. Well, Mary Fitzgerald seemed to be ahead of the game there, implying that Belhaj was going into politics with Hizb ul-Watan, two weeks before it was officially annouced: Libya’s Belhaj quits military to enter politics

    As the BBC reported, calling Belhaj's party the Nation Party Mr Belhadj told the BBC he is not asking for money, he only wants a formal apology.[from the UK's secret services and its Foreign Secretary - not sure whether this leaves Mr ACL Blair in the clear though...]

    Sorry about that Abdel. Slight mix-up. Oh, that's all right Jack.

    1. 7/7/2012 Something I missed - Al Qaeda LIFG leader Abdul Belhaj writes column for Guardian!

      don't miss his new article :



  8. Since that system of repression collapsed, Salafis have become emboldened. Some have acquired weapons and used them to enforce their ultra-purist view of Islam.

    In the eastern city of Benghazi, organizers of a rap concert featuring a famous Tunisian artist were forced to cancel the event after being threatened by a Salafi brigade called Libya's Shield.


    1. Libiya UAE Aref Ali Nayed Tripoli's ambassador United Arab Emirates

      El Hadi El Ghariani, an adviser to the interim prime minister, suggested the Society could take on promoting dialogue among Islam's competing sects.
      Aref Ali Nayed, a Sufi theologian who is now Tripoli's ambassador in the United Arab Emirates, said it should be turned into a university modeled on Al Azhar, the revered seat of Sunni learning in Cairo.
      He sees it countering the Saudi brand of Islam - the role it was supposed to play under Gaddafi.
      "It could be a kind of anti-radicalization think tank," he said.

      Benotman doubts the Society could be neatly divided into a good WICS & a bad WIPL

    2. last video: Rebels Release 600 Al-Qaeda Terrorists, video footage from Wednesday 25 August allegedly.
      However, all prisoners released on 19 August. Friday.

    3. I have no idea when the Abu Salim prison was "liberated", but this video uploaded on August 24th has a timestamp of 2011-08-24 02:55:04 UTC. It is daytime, so the event must have happened on August 23rd the latest.

    4. It's rather a long video, Petri. Longer than the usual spontaneous mobile phone recording clip. Perhaps a re-enactment.

  9. Belhaj was interviewed by Al-Jazeera (uploaded on April 23) about his alleged rendition from Thailand in 2004 and torture (arabic): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsyBCExEfKU - عبدالحكيم بلحاج وأجهزة الاستخبارات الغربية "Abdelhakim Belhaj and Western Intelligence Services. I don't recognised the apparent prison he is depicted in front of. It is not Tripoli, looking quite rural. Interesting footage.

    1. Bouckaert and the documents (Bouckaert was also in the thick of finding arms caches in Tripoli around the same time) found in the Libyan Foreign Ministry: Democracy Now (sic) video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qm3Eao6xGow concerning rendition and Belhaj. The rather dodgy looking business card at 1.55 is of Sandy Hardie OBE of the Foreign Office. Alexander Hardie OBE is listed as Counsellor to South Africa, 1993-1997. On 20 Feb 2006 he gave a lecture to Oxford University Intelligence group on Intelligence Reform in the developing world.. His low web profile indicates some intelligence role.

    2. Elections for a two-hundred-seat assembly scheduled for mid-June remain the best chance to replace the militias with the legitimacy of the ballot box. Behind the scenes, Ian Martin, the UN’s special representative in Libya, drawing on his experience overseeing elections in East Timor and Nepal, has been trying to get the NTC to keep to its timetable

    3. There’s no proof of systematic killings ordered from above, but Gadhafi’s incitement against the rebel fighters he called rats “opened the door for this kind of barbaric conduct,” said Fred Abrahams of Human Rights Watch.

    7. @felix : doebler not named in Ziegler article below, he supported the progress in human rights in Libiya :

      The NGO appeal names Jean Ziegler, a member of the UNHRC Advisory Committee, who in 1989 announced the creation of the Moammar Gaddafi Prize for Human Rights. When Libya's rights record was reviewed in November 2010, a Libyan-funded group tied to Ziegler distributed a 2010 book, edited by Ziegler, that likens Gaddafi to the philosopher Rousseau.

      Before #NATO and the U.S. started #bombing #Libya, the #UnitedNations was preparing to bestow an award on Colonel Muammar #Gaddafi, and the Libyan Jamahiriya, for its achievements in the area of human rights?? http://www.sott.net/articles/show/236961-UN-Report-Offers-Smoking-Gun-Proof-of-NATO-and-US-Lies-about-Libya

    8. "very non-HRW "
      which person looking at what invasions are happening nowadays shouldn't become very anti colonial ngo's ?

      look who is amnesty master now:

      Three new agreements signed between Gaddafi Foundation and UNRWA
      Suzanne Nossel, former assistant to Richard Holbrooke in his capacity as UN Ambassador and currently Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Assistant for International Organization Affairs, has been selected as the new Executive Director of Amnesty International USA.
      In the discharge of her duties at the State Department, she diligently exploited human rights to benefit imperial ambitions.

      Ms. Nossel has launched several campaigns against Iran, Libya and Syria. In recent months she made a name for herself by misinforming the Human Rights Council in Geneva with a view to getting the resolution authorizing the war on Libya adopted by the Security Council. Ms. Nossel’s allegations have since been debunked. [3] 

    9. AI now absolutely discredited! Thanks hurriya.

    10. why I get the strange feeling loosing yr sympathy by that?

    11. another interview with belhaj :

      Omar Ashour of the University of Exeter and a visiting fellow in the Brookings Doha Center. interviewed Belhaj 2 hours after he was released from prison See here in Foreign Policy, 29 Aug 2011

    12. Thanks for reminding me, Hurriya. Ashour was still at it in march 9 2012, Foreign Policy: "Libya's Muslim Brotherhood faces the future"
      And also here: LIBYAN ISLAMISTS UNPACKED, Brookings Centre, May 2012.
      Ashour was certainly putting himself around TV studios in Feb 2011: e.g
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAlOpevNuJU (Sky)
      and here on RT , July 18 2011 from Barcelona:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUmxsgn3e6w :listen especially at 15.00 when he is quizzed about how Benghazi fell by Marko Gasic..
      A very interesting discussion indeed... Peter Lavelle CrossTalking with Ayo Johnson, Omar Ashour and Marko Gasic.

      See also a long programme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD2IVOZvshM The Arab Spring One year later, CIPS U of Ottawa. A key perp.

    13. AI now absolutely discredited! Thanks hurriya.

      It also seems that a human rights NGO, in this case Amnesty International, which had gained a solid reputation and hence the trust of those it has helped through the years, will be jeopardized in aligning itself with the U.S. Secretary of State and NATO.

      This is exactly how the Nobel Peace Prize got corrupted, aligning itself with the U.S. Secretary of State and NATO, which is why Nobel laureate Mairead Maguire withdrew from the Nobel Peace forum held in Chicago during NATO.

      Good NGOS and non-profits that want to maintain the trust in their humanitarian work tend to be very careful to maintain their independence from any government, let alone any war-making government. When NGOs, even good ones, become entwined with the U.S./NATO war machine, don’t they risk losing their independent credibility?

  10. Hilarious blame :

    Ian Birrell, writing in the Guardian, blames the desecration on the actions of a handful of misguided fools.

    This is blatantly not the case. Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was directly responsible

    for negotiating the release of Islamic extremists from prison, where his father imprisoned them as a direct challenge to his leadership and due to his fear of the rise of extremism with its links to terrorism.

    These Libyan extremists are quick to denounce and deny any terrorist links but their systematic attacks on symbols they disapprove of could be construed as acts of terror, or at the very least the acts of those deranged by their beliefs.They have powerful backers and their leaders could well win high political office in the forthcoming elections.

  12. The British Home Office later noted that the LIFG’s ‘aim had been to overthrow the Qadafi regime and replace it with an Islamic state’.

    The head of the assassination team was reported as being the Libya-based Abdal Muhaymeen, a veteran of the Afghan resistance and thus possibly trained by MI6 or the CIA.

    As the LIFG stepped up its confrontation with the Libyan regime in 1995, it issued calls for Qadafi’s overthrow. One communiqué, written in October 1995, around the time the organisation was plotting with MI6, described the Qadafi government as ‘an apostate regime that has blasphemed against the faith of God Almighty’, and declared that its overthrow was ‘the foremost duty after faith in God’. These calls were mainly issued in London, where several prominent members of the LIFG were based after having been granted political asylum

    The episode is interesting in that it shows how Britain’s secret collusion with radical Islamists has directly undermined its ability to curb and prosecute them – a leitmotif, in fact, of Britain’s postwar foreign policy where Whitehall has often collaborated with the very groups to which it claims to be opposed.

      Rising Jihadism in Libya: the Abdul Rahman Brigade’s Goal in Attacking Western Targets

      A Libyan armed group called Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman Brigade has claimed responsibility for the recent attacks in Benghazi, targeting the ICRC headquarters and the US diplomatic offices in the city, amongst others. The brigade is named after “The Blind Sheikh”, Omar Abdul Rahman, currently serving a life sentence in North Carolina for his alleged connections to the 1993 World Trade Centre bombings.
      The group is also responsible for the recent attack on the British Ambassador’s Convoy, on 11 June and for a second attack on the ICRC offices in the city of Misrata on 12 June which has led to the injury of a young Libyan, the son of the owner of the complex, and has caused material damage to the organization’s building.

    2. Excellent additions, Hurriya. I hadn't even heard about the anti-Western attacks or that brigade. Will have to catch up a bit, soon here.

    3. From our friend Brown Moses , Guardian report 12 June on Misrata ICRC incident (probably forwarded by ex-LIFG man Benotman) :
      While black flags are used by Islamic extremists it's untrue to say they are solely used by Islamic extremists, so unless someone asked the people in that convoy their political opinions you can't claim they are al-Qaeda based solely of the flags they are waving. It's like assuming someone is a racist because have an English flag hanging out their window.

      Must hang out a black flag today. Might mean I am a UK royalist.

    From a windy open field just outside Benghazi, our correspondent Chris McGreal, tells me that the power of the rockets launched by the French was significant and had ripped through tanks being used by Libyan forces which now stood burning.

    He said military vehicles were "the principal advantage Gaddafi has over the rebels" and the attacks were likely to demoralise the Libyan forces.

    The attack had been stealthy, coming with little warning.
    "There was anger among the rebels that it took a good 24 hours for the attack to take place," he said "but there is now a sense the tide has turned."

    Syrian Rebel Group Al-Nusrah Front Takes Credit For Suicide Bombing Against Regime Forces

    The Al Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant, a jihadist group in Syria linked to al Qaeda, has claimed credit for a complex suicide attack and ambush that targeted the Syrian military at a camp in Idlib.

    Libyans could be turning against the West, think tank says http://on.msnbc.com/LR2viW via @msnbc_world eat it ya rats drums of war against #Libya

    “The recent events in Libya underline the fragile security situation in the country and the difficulties faced by the Libyan authorities in creating a stable environment, thus generating a security vacuum ready to be exploited by various militant groups,” Noman Benotman, a former Libyan jihadist who now works for the Quilliam Foundation, told msnbc.com.

    @PositiveLibya ok, thanks, so him yesterday here. One year ago some in Benghazi, even one military official told me there was "alqaida" in the green mountains near Derna, but that they first had to win the war against Gaddafi, before they could tackle them

    1. Note on the Quilliam Foundation.what are benothman [ & the think tanks] planning for ?

      In 2007, as part of his “reform and repent” program,
      Saif Al-Islam initiated a dialogue with the LIFG leadership.

      He brought Islamic scholars to the Abu Salim prison,

      in-cluding Sheikh Ali Al-Salabi

      and Noman Bin Othman, a former LIFG veteran based in the UK,

      to try to convince it to renounce violence in exchange for release.

  17. But, beside the dernah brothers : do salafists like the west?


    Minister of Endowments and Religious Affairs himself, Hamza Abu Faris, has indeed admitted during an interview on April 15 to the Libyan press, that most mosques in Libya, Tripoli to Benghazi and Sirte in Misrata, were now under the control of Imam Salafists who, in addition to the Taliban to pledge allegiance to Al Qaeda, are, as everyone knows and as every true democrat feared above all, the most extremist of the most radical Islamists.

    A frightening ... especially for the future status of women in this obscurantism, particularly retrograde, from another age!

    6/22 LIBYA..chiekh sadek el gheryani to FF’s (Sabha, Bani Waled)

    Sadiq al Ghiryani, a Libyan religious leader,told Al Jazeera a “massacre” was under way in the city and troops firing shots were mostly mercenaries.. Kamal Hudethifi, a judge, described the killings as “ethnic cleansing”.


  18. The rebel Salabi Ismail admitted that mercenaries have returned from Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan to Libya. They are currently doing internships now and if they stay in Libya, it’s all over for Libya.


  19. The British have a long-standing relationship with the al Qaeda affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, based inside Libya. The British also have an historical relationship with the Wahhabi/Salafi brand of Islam, espoused today by Ikhwan al Muslimeen (Muslim Brotherhood) and their offshoots, including al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.


    1. The British have a long-standing relationship with the al Qaeda affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, based inside Libya

      There is also a private airport in Misrata, which operates direct flights to Istanbul, away from the eyes of state supervision.
      Through this airport, fighters are transported to Syria via Turkey.

      The US is in control of Libya's security sector and is planning to link the country's security to NATO through a number of measures including the deployment of more drones.

      Today, the US is more concerned about the war on terror in the region than with oil revenues.
      They left the oil projects to the British and construction and contracting to Turkey.

      The Islamists seem to be closer to the British in their policies and do not object to London's orders.

      This is reflected in London's relationship with Abdul-Rahman al-Sowaihali al-Misrati who claims to be representing Misrata, a representation based on his control of a battalion of gunmen.

    Ashur Shamis is one of the founding members of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya, which in 1981 was founded in Sudan. He has been wanted by Interpol and the Libyan police for years. [7] Ahsur is also listed as someone who has been a director in the National Endowment for Democracy in the Libyan Human and Political Development Forum. He is also the editor of the Akhbar webpage, which was registered under Akhbar Cultural Limited and tied to the NED. He has also participated in recent key conferences for regime change in Tripoli. This includes the conference in London held by Chatham House in 2011, which discussed NATO plans for the invasion of Tripoli. [8]

    Like Ashur, Aly Abuzaakouk is also a member of the National Front for the Salvation of Libya and tied to the National Endowment for Democracy. He was one of the key participants and attendees at the roundtable held for the 2011 Democracy Awards by the NED. [9] Like Ashur, he is also wanted by Interpol and serves as a director at the Libyan Human and Political Development Forum. [10]

    There is also Noman Benotman, a former leader and founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and a wanted terrorist. He is presented as a former terrorist. Benotman conveniently left the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001. Benotman is not only a National Endowment for Democracy (NED) director in the Libyan Human and Political Development Forum, he is also tied to the news network Al Jazeera.

    Moreover, the legal documents that have been filed by the NED regarding these individuals have been deliberately and illegally tampered with.

    One key individual’s identity has been hidden in the list of NED directors. Thus, legal documents have been fraudulently filled out to hide an individual’s identity under the alias of “Beata Wozniak.”
    Even Wozniak’s birthday is invalid, appearing as January 1, 1 (01/01/0001).
    She is an person who has been on the board of all these NED organizations. She is listed as a director and secretary of Akbar, Transparency Libya Limited, and several British companies.

    A top Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) leader was reported to have been killed in an ambush by Colonel Muammar Qaddafi's forces earlier this month.
    The LIFG leader, known as Urwah, was detained in Iran in 2004 but allowed to return to Libya to participate in the fighting against Qaddafi's regime earlier this year.

    Urwah was actually released from Iranian custody in late 2010, according to Al Hayah, a Saudi-owned publication based in London, but was allowed to stay in Iran "for a period of time after his release until he was able to arrange his travel back to Libya.

    " A former senior member of the LIFG told Al Hayah in 2007 that Urwah was one of several influential leaders within the LIFG.

    The reporting on Urwah's demise does not specify what sort of detention the Iranians placed him in prior to his return to Libya, or if he had been allowed to meet with other al Qaeda and LIFG operatives inside Iran.

  28. There are some signs the new government is defining potential enemies of the state in a way that reaches beyond the former dictator's family members or henchmen. "The revolution must use all means necessary to rid the country of enemies," says Adel al-Morsi, who in April became the commander of the Tripoli branch office of Preventative Security. He says his definition of security threats includes schoolteachers who don't let children sing the new national anthem and businessmen who became wealthy in Gadhafi's time.

    Mr. Hasi was appointed by the NTC, Libya's unelected caretaker parliament.

    Mr. Hasi, originally from the Libyan town of Shahat, is known for his onetime membership in the National Front for the Salvation of Libya, a 1980s-era anti-Gadhafi group that had ties to the Central Intelligence Agency, according to a book by Bob Woodward on CIA history.

    In 1984, the group tried and failed to assassinate Gadhafi. Some of the members, including Mr. Hasi, moved to the U.S.

    From 1997 to 2000, Mr. Hasi worked as an assistant manager at a soccer-equipment store in Roswell, Ga., according to a résumé he posted on his website. He later opened a flier and brochure-making business in the Atlanta area, the website says.

    He also kept up with events in Libya and volunteered at Amnesty International, where he served as an expert on North Africa from 2004 until the end of last year, according to a spokeswoman for the nonprofit. She described Mr. Hasi as a long-standing human-rights activist.

    Eventually, Mr. Hasi settled on teaching Arabic continuing-education classes at Atlanta-based Emory University. In 2009 he started an Arabic program at North Georgia College & State University, one of the U.S.'s six senior military colleges. Most students he taught were military cadets.

    "This responsibility no one can take care of but him," alHasi said.
    "I know very well that the Libyan army especially in the eastern part is in desperate need of his presence."

    March 12 2011 a spokesman for the rebel movement, Hamid al-Hasi, told Al Arabiya that Ras Lanuf was back in rebel hands.

    13 Mar 2011 Rebel Colonel Hamed al-Hasi, a rebel spokesman in Brega, told Al Jazeera on Sunday: "We have captured 20 of Gaddafi's forces and we killed 25. We have forced them to retreat 20km from the town."
    March 15, 2011,
    Earlier Wajid al-Hasi, 31, was killed when a jet dropped a bomb as he drove by the gateway to the city, sending shrapnel smashing into the back of his car and shattering his skull, witnesses and medics at the hospital said.

    Wednesday, March 16, 2011 08:12:00 HAMID AL-HASI (translated): On the ground we have better forces than Gaddafi and we think we can take him if it is a war on the ground and it is land forces. Ours is better - much better than Gaddafi forces but we are worried about the aircraft and air force.

    PETER CAVE: Could you ask him how important this town is?

    HAMID AL HASY (translated): Ajdabiyah is concerned as the first defence line towards Tobruk, so we’re really concerned about this strategical place so we defend Ajdabiyah as our first defence line.


    March 17, 2011 People here are terrified,” said Ahmed al-Hasi, a former diplomat who left Benghazi Wednesday for Bayda.

  32. Brig. Gen. Abdulsalam al-Hasi
    BENGHAZI, Libya — As part of their mission in Libya, the United States and its European allies have unleashed a high-tech assault from the air, deploying AWACS spy planes, unmanned aircraft and sophisticated satellite systems.

    But in the rebels’ operational command center in eastern Libya, there are no television screens beaming satellite images, no detailed maps with Global Positioning System coordinates. They don’t even have a direct phone line to their NATO counterparts.
    So when a rebel officer on the front line called in one recent morning in need of help, Brig. Gen. Abdulsalam al-Hasi had little choice. He walked down the corridor and asked the American and European advisers in his command center to request a NATO airstrike — and then prayed for quick action.
    “Sometimes they are late, very late,” said Hasi, shaking his head.

    03/21/2011 The committee rejects foreign troops on the ground, but we encourage the (aerial) bombardments of Gadhafi's army," Ahmed El-Hasi, a spokesman for the February 17 opposition coalition, told news agencies in the eastern city of Benghazi.

  33. El-Hasi was speaking two days after an assault on Benghazi was repulsed when foreign warplanes hit his troops as fighting raged on the outskirts. The foreign strikes, spearheaded by France, Britain and the United States, have since targeted sites in Tripoli itself and elsewhere.

    El-Hasi said the rebel committee would also send a delegation to meet Arab League officials, who after initially supporting foreign action have expressed concern about civilian casualties, to tell them that they approved of the strikes.

    26 Mar 2011 – "The eastern gate has fallen and we are sending a team to check before moving forward," rebel Colonel Hamad al-Hasi told Reuters.

  34. 3/22/2011 / Adil al-Hasi, a rebel commander, said he was given orders not to send his men into battle until allied jets had struck Gaddafi’s forces.

    In the end, though, almost every commander and fighter reached the same conclusion:

    Don’t push forward. Let the allied warplanes destroy Gaddafi’s forces. Some hoped that their foes, fearing the airstrikes, would leave on their own.
    “We are waiting,” said Hasi, the commander. “Maybe they will surrender.


    BENGHAZI, March 21 (Reuters) – Fears of loyalist gunmen thought to be hiding in Libya’s rebel capital kept its people on edge on Monday, a day after the euphoria of their rescue by Western airstrikes on Muammar Gaddafi’s forces.

    The gunmen known as the Elejan El-Thoria, after the Revolutionary Committees set up by Gaddafi, were given 24 hours until noon on Tuesday to surrender or face retribution in a message relayed over Mosque loudspeakers by the rebels.

    21 Mar 2011 Another rebel official, Ahmed El-Hasi, said some had already been killed or captured.

  35. Jun 14, 2011 “Over the past three days, we set fire under the feet of Qaddafi forces everywhere,” said Colonel Hamid al-Hasi, a rebel battalion commander.

    September 2, 2011 a man named Adel Mohammed al-Hasi explained to Maclean’s, as they tore through Tripoli streets with their new captive, swerving maniacally through traffic.

    He says five of the saboteurs were killed and the rest arrested.

  36. 20 06/10/2011 "More than half the city is under the control of the (anti-Gaddafi) rebels," said Adel Al-Hasi, a local NTC commander. "In two days, God willing, Sirte will be free."

    31 October 2011 Fadel al-Hasi, Libya’s acting minister for antiquities, said authorities suspect the theft could have been an inside job and the bank’s employees had been questioned several times.

    15/11/2011 Brigadier General Abdel Salam al-Hasi, commander of the new forces, told AP that fighters deciding to join the army would first have to undergo training.

  37. @21.21 defector abdel salim al hasi


    what”s in a name \ al-Hasi – Al-Hasidi
    Al-Hasidi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which killed dozens of Libyan troops in guerrilla attacks around Derna and Benghazi in 1995 and 1996

  38. Wales Online Oct 8 2006 : Welsh terror raid Osama link "....the Home Office has accused the Libyan of being connected to terror chief bin Laden's Al-Qaeda network as the Government seeks to deport him....Known locally as Mr Ali, the Libyan was arrested after cops raided the home he shared with his wife and two young children in Canton at 6am on October 3..>"

    LIFG: An Organization in Eclipse ,Terrorism Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 21, November 3, 2005 ,by Alison Pargeter...

    ...According to one Libyan Islamist, the organization’s members in the UK only number in the dozens [3]. It appears that these individuals abandoned the armed struggle long ago and were reduced to focusing their efforts on producing anti-regime propaganda and assisting other members of the organization based abroad by providing money and fake documents to help them settle in Europe. Indeed, according to the wife of one of the men arrested in the UK, her husband was engaged in “passport fraud to help his friends come to Britain to escape Qadhafi”. The wife of another claimed her husband spent all his time on the Internet. Accordingly, the arrests of the five men in Birmingham, Cardiff and London in October [2005] look more like a symbolic defeat for the remnants of a fading organization.

    The Arabic media named the arrested men as Bashir el Fakhi, Ziyad Hashem al-Ruqai’i, Khalid Buslama al-Ilaqi, Nasir Buruaq and Ismail Kamoka, who spent a period in Belmarsh prison in relation to his alleged connections to Abu Qatada . It seems that they were on a list of 25 members of the LIFG provided by the Libyan authorities to the UK in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. The importance of these particular figures within the organization is not known, although Ziyad Hashem, also known as Shakir al-Ghaznawi and Imad al-Libi, is thought to be a member of the group’s media committee. In fact, allegations appeared in the Spanish media in August 2005 linking Hashem, as well as the imprisoned Emir Abdullah Sadeq, with the Tunisian Islamist Serhane Ben Abdelmajid Fakhet, the suspected ringleader in the Madrid attacks ....

    See also Families fear detained men will be killed by Gadafy regime
    by Vikram Dodd, Guardian Oct 19 2005. Three of the five men are named thus: Khalid Abusalama Alalagi, 34,Nasir Bourourg, 42 ,both from the Midlands, and Ziad Hashim from Cardiff,who with his wife Fatima ,"came to Britain in 2003 from China, and before that had lived in Malaysia". He ran a website which Mrs Hashim said "tried to embarrass Gadafy to the world to show all his crimes"

  39. Toubou leaders also criticize the nomination of Abdul Wahab Hassain Qaid as commander of border security in the southern part of the country. Brother of Abou Yahya al-Libi, the No. 2 of al Qaeda who was killed in Pakistan in early June by an American drone, he is said to have received 170 million dinars ($120 million) and a fleet of four-wheel drive vehicles from Qatar. “Why nominate an Islamist?” asks Barka Wardougou. “Wasn’t there anybody else?”


  40. @ felix : Fatima Hashim, 30, from Cardiff, and her husband Ziad came to Britain in 2003 from China, and before that had lived in Malaysia:

    In 2004, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, the Libyan with links to the CIA and al Qaeda, moved from China to Malaysia.

    In January 2000, al Qaeda operatives held a meeting in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

      Tesawa is also the hometown of Abu Yahya al-Libi, the former al Qaeda commander whose star in the organization rose quickly due to his talent for both oratory and jihad.

      Abu Yahya -- whose real name, his family says, is Al Hussain Muhammad Qayed -- spent the first 21 years of his life here. He then spent his last two decades abroad, first traveling to Mauritania and Sudan before eventually arriving in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where he joined the ranks of al Qaeda. He was arrested by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, but escaped from Bagram Air Base in 2005. He rocketed to fame following his jailbreak, achieving such prominence that some Western counterterrorism analysts even dubbed him "the next Osama."

      “Sheikh Medhi” Calls For Jihad In Syria


    8. “Sheikh Medhi” Calls For Jihad In Syria :



  43. Over 700 Wahhabi groups functioned freely in West Europe by the spring of 1999. Internationally, they were given a key role in funding and supplying Albanian extremists, who were known to be deeply involved with the drug mafia and were instrumental in unleashing the war against Yugoslavia.

    As for London, it gradually evolved into a global terrorist hub. These days, the city is home to a cohort of “Muslim dissenters” like the notorious Akhmed Zakayev, a Chechen terrorist envoy charged in Russia with kidnapings and the murders of over 300 people in October, 1995 – December, 2000.

    A list released by the US Department of State a decade ago showed that 10 of the 30 organizations branded terrorist at the time were openly headquartered in London, plus 15 others floated fund-rising campaigns in Great Britain.

    Back in the 1990ies, Egypt's H. Mubarak unveiled a list of 14 terrorist groups based in London and slammed the British authorities for allowing terrorists to come to Great Britain and stay at large there after perpetrating terrorist acts. Egyptian minister of the interior H. el-Adly said in 1996 that all terrorists, including those resident in other European countries, started their careers in London.

    On December 14, 1997 Egyptian foreign minister A. Moussa handed over to the British ambassador a letter with an official request that Great Britain stop sheltering terrorists and cooperate with Egypt in fighting against them.

    According to Western media accounts and WikiLeaks revelations, by the early 2009, 32% of the young Muslims in Great Britain were prepared to kill people in the name of Islam and 40% would welcome the enactment of the Sharia law. Former Metropolitan Police Chief of London Lord John Stevens said around 3,000 British citizens had been trained in Al Qaeda camps. He also stated in an interview to News of the World that at least 200 British terrorists were ready to attack innocent people in the name of their understanding of Islam.


  44. Several opposition spokesmen, anonymous "Libyan" Twitter accounts, and other persons who would become associated with the insurgents' "Transitional National Council" (TNC) produced the paradox of racial/racist hysteria and humanitarian intervention.

  54. A man calling himself "Khalifa Haftar" admitted this quite openly in an interview for "Al-Hayat" on 19 December 1991.


    - In 1987 troops trained to carry out sabotage operations arrived in Chad. Their training had been specially tailored to American plans for attacking Libya. Chad offered these troops operational possibilities. Military camps were built, including the Um Sanina camp. Barracks for military experts were erected; unlimited financial aid was provided. Immoral methods of treatment and psychological warfare were used against the Libyan hostages in Chad.

    Some of them were even killed in the presence of other hostages because they refused to join these terrorist troops. The murdered hostages included Major Abdul Salman Sahban and Group Captain Abdulsalem Sharf Al-Deen.

    After the victory of the troops of President Idris Debi and the overthrow of the regime of the agent Habri in November 1990, the US administration perpetrated an act of piracy against these hostages, which occurred as follows:

    - On 7 December 1990 a US C 141-Nr-50280 aircraft stationed in Ramstein (FRG) landed at Njamina airport. The American ambassador to Chad was present. Two hundred Libyan hostages were transported against their will in this aircraft to Nigeria.

    - On 8 December 1990, 450 Libyan hostages were transported in the same way from Njamina airport to Zaire.

    - On 16 December 1991 the London-based Arab newspaper "Al-Hayat" reported that its correspondent had visited a CIA-run training camp in the state of Virginia for the Libyan hostages that the USA had kidnapped from Chad.

    These troops had already received some training in Chad under the leadership of Colonel Robert Bag, the former American ambassador to Chad. Bag had even planned to transport them to the USA and train them there for subsequent sabotage actions against the Jamahiriya.

    A man calling himself "Khalifa Haftar" admitted this quite openly in an interview for "Al-Hayat" on 19 December 1991.

    He added that the Americans had declared that they were fully prepared to offer every type of training for air and ground operations against the Jamahiriya.

  55. They had 45 days of training in a camp with a Libyan veteran of the Chad war as their instructor.


    Waheed Burshan had driven along the same highway the previous day, heading for his family’s hometown of Gharyan, south of Tripoli.

    Crossing over from Tunisia at Dehiba, he had looked like an American soccer dad on a family outing, with supplies of mineral water in the back of the car. He hadn’t been back to Gharyan — liberated from pro-Qadhafi forces the previous week — for 16 years. And he hadn’t been lived in Libya for more than 30.

    As a teenager he had been active in the students’ union, and with military service looming, his father packed him off to Italy.

    There had been reprisals against the family – travel restrictions and an uncle in prison – and threats against himself, but his activism continued through studies in the US (telecom engineering), raising a family in Chicago, and project management in the Qatari state sector.

    Since April, he explained, he had been “project managing” the rebel push from the Nafusa mountain area for the Transitional National Council (TNC), working between Benghazi and Tunis.

    They had 45 days of training in a camp with a Libyan veteran of the Chad war as their instructor.

    Something between 5,000 and 10,000 were trained in the area, and “sometimes we inflated the numbers just to scare the heck out of [the pro-Qadhafi loyalists]“.

    Women and children from the region’s towns and villages were sent over the border into Tunisia to let the men focus on their fighting.
    Nor is he overly respectful of the few British ex-commandos who arrived as trainers.

    There were also a few Qatari instructors who arrived along with sophisticated weaponry sent by their government, he adds.

    I have no sympathy for the LIFG members. It is understandable thet HRW wants to whitewash them – they have been supporting the terrorist "revolution" from the very beginning, as well as the illegal war of aggression thet put these terrorist to power.

    We should study the HRW report closely. All the 20 interviewees are now big shots in the LIFG al Qaeda terror regime in Libya.

    Khalid al-Sharif, who was arrested along with al-Shoroeiya, said: They gave me a different type of torture every day. Sometimes ... Now head of the Libyan National Guard, Mr Sharif claimed he was held for two years in two different US-run detention centres believed to be operated by the CIA in Afghanistan.

    We should make bios of all these men. Emphasize their terror and NTC activities, instead of concentrating on their suffering in the evil hands of the CIA.

    1. Another former suspect, Khalid al-Sharif, says he was tortured in a CIA prison before being turned over to Qaddafi in 2005. He became a key figure in the 2011 revolt and now runs the Libyan National Guard.

  59. Did NGO's help overthrow Gaddafi?

    Inside Story Last Modified: 21 Feb 2011 12:59
    Jibril : We had on that day in Al Bayda city only 300 protesters.
    When they killed two people, we had more than 5,000 at their funeral, and when they killed 15 people the next day, we had more than 50,000 the following day.
    “This means that the more Gaddafi kills people, the more people go into the streets.”
    “Gaddafi’s guards started shooting people in the second day and they shot two people only.

    That distinction was made brutally obvious to doctors at the intensive care unit of Al Bayda’s main hospital on Feb. 17 when they admitted two men – one black, the other with the local olive-skinned complexion – who stood accused of fighting the rebels. A crowd gathered outside the hospital, calling for blood. Some armed rebels pushed their way into the ward.
    “They had guns and knives,” said Mahmoud Anass, 27, a resident on duty that night. “It was really scary. They wanted to kill the black soldier.”


    A cellphone video later circulated among residents showing a Christian cross tattooed on a black man. Locals pronounced this as proof that the hanged man, whom they called “John,” had been a non-Muslim outsider.

    In February 2011, after fleeing Tripoli for the city of Al Bayda, Libya's ex-Minister of Justice, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, claimed in an interview that Colonel al-Gaddafi was using ‘African mercenaries’ against his own people.

    Rebel Leaders Jalil and Younis, Plus Most of Rebel Council are Members of the al Qaeda-linked Harabi Tribe

  60. Two days earlier, on 16 February, it was also reported that Islamist gunmen, with the help of a defecting army colonel, stormed an arms depot in Derna and seized 250 weapons and an assortment of 70 military vehicles.
    During the raid four soldiers were killed and 16 wounded.[15] By the end of 18 February, the only place that still housed a significant number of Gaddafi loyalists in Benghazi was the Katiba compound.

    The source added : "terrorist group" led by "National Sufyan, a former driver for bin Laden and Abdullah Hakim Alhsady Howeidi and Anis,"

    pointing out that these persons were "released by the Gaddafi Foundation for less than a year."

    Furthermore, the son of Sofian Qamom was killed, also two members of Al- Qaeda got killed by residents of the city of Darna.

  61. Abdul Hakim Al-Hasadi

    Locals say that a rebel commander named Abdul Hakim Al-Hasadi organized an ambush near the outskirts; the 45-year-old had quickly become a prominent figure among the rebels because of his expertise in guerrilla warfare, which he received at training camps in Afghanistan from 1999 to 2002. (In an earlier interview with The Globe and Mail, Mr. Al-Hasadi declined to say who operated his training camp; al-Qaeda ran camps in the same part of Afghanistan during that period.)




    In late February and early March, Gaddafi was claiming that the rebel groups were linked to al-Qaeda, a claim which was largely ridiculed by Western media.
    Apparently, it is only the Western nations and media who have the ability to claim that all their ‘enemies’ are linked to al-Qaeda.

    As the Guardian reported on 1 March, “Muammar Gaddafi’s insistent claim that al-Qaida is behind the Libyan uprising – made in all his public appearances since the crisis began – has been dismissed at home and abroad as propaganda.”

    However, as the WSJ reported from Benghazi, “Sufyan Ben Qumu, a Libyan army veteran who worked for Osama bin Laden’s holding company in Sudan and later for an al Qaeda-linked charity in Afghanistan, is training many of the city’s rebel recruits.”

  62. May 12, 2009 Human Rights Watch has strongly condemned the CIA’s detention program and documented how detainees in CIA custody were abused, but, like other human rights groups, was never granted access to prisoners in CIA custody.

  63. NGO's Focus on Libiya :

    June 27, 2006 According to Khaled, more than 400 prisoners escaped Abu Salim in four separate break-outs prior to and after the incident: in July 1995, December 1995, June 1996 and July 2001.

    Among the escapees were men who then fought with Islamist militant groups in Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq, he said.


    A Libyan group based in Switzerland, Libyan Human Rights Solidarity,
    says that since 2001 the authorities have notified 112 families that a relative held in Abu Salim is dead, without providing the body or details on the cause of death. In addition, 238 families claim they have lost contact with a relative who was a prisoner in Abu Salim.
    "News of the massacre was slow to leak out," remembers Professor Abdullah Shamia, now minister of economic affairs in Libya's National Transitional Council
    Later in the day, Guweidi told me that two former prison guards had identified the location of the main Abu Salim mass grave site. Guweidi took me to an area abutting the southern wall of the prison, where ploughed-over soil appeared distinct from the surrounding wasteland


    1. Amnesty : july 2012

      The new Libyan authorities - to emerge from the July elections - will face the difficult task of fixing a country left damaged and divided by four decades of repressive and arbitrary rule,
      where some people lived above the law and others outside of its protection.

      The post-conflict period, which has been marked by lawlessness and human rights abuses, demonstrates how challenging it is to break a legacy of impunity, particularly in a country left with weak and mistrusted institutions.

      the organization says that nearly a year after Tripoli fell to the revolutionary fighters (thuwwar), ongoing violations -- including arbitrary arrests and detention, torture including to death, impunity for unlawful killings and forcible displacement -- are casting a shadow over the country's first national elections since the fall of al-Gaddafi's regime.


      The report 'Libya: rule of law or rule of militias?”
      seems to be blocked in september 2012 ,see links beneath :

    2. In september 2011 amnesty started to mention some “thuwar” abuses :

      although this report seems to be not available now too :

    3. No NGO did reported about :

      From public hangings, to torture, even people burned alive for expressing their support for the Jamahariya Government.


      as if countless black Africans &black Libyans were to be subtracted from “humanity” that “human rights” advocates claim as their devout concern




      @ 5.13 they attacked the HQ of the terrorists & then they moved on to the militairy base where these terrorists in february of 2011 had attacked & have killed six Libiyan soldiers,
      burned their bodies & then put them on public display & told the world with help of the western media that M. Khadafi's troops killed their own soldiers & burned their bodies alive

      The government decreed that by July 12, the local brigades should either free their prisoners or transfer them to the custody of the state, but progress has been slow and uneven. As of this writing, an estimated 5,000 prisoners still remain in militia-run prisons, while 3,000 have been transferred to the Ministry of Justice.


    5. In the meantime HRW want to become friends with Libiyans from Guantanamo :

      Libiya/september 2012

      HRW: delivered into enemies hands : rendition to Ghadafi's Libiya


      Only by admitting and apologizing for past mistakes … can we move forward together as friends


      A well-known human rights organization Human Rights Watch found secret archives of Muammar Gaddafi. It turned out that before 2008, the CIA, MI-5 and MI-6 helped the colonel in catching enemies, locking them in jail and torturing them before transferring them to Tripoli.

      Is it a scandal? A sensation? A dirty story?

      And where are these "martyrs" now?

    1. Abu Yahya -- whose real name, his family says, is Al Hussain Muhammad Qayed -- spent the first 21 years of his life here.
      He then spent his last two decades abroad, first traveling to Mauritania and Sudan before eventually arriving in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where he joined the ranks of al Qaeda.
      He was arrested by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, but escaped from Bagram Air Base in 2005. He rocketed to fame following his jailbreak, achieving such prominence that some Western counterterrorism analysts even dubbed him "the next Osama."

  65. -Abu Saleem Prisoners freed in 2010 and 2011 on initiative of Zeef al Islam :
    705 prisoners have been released as part of the initiative.
    Tuesday’s release followed the release of 214 men in March, and on Tuesday Mohamed al-Allagi, the chairman of the human rights committee of the Gaddafi Foundation, stated.


    Under the influence of Saif al-Islam, one of Gaddafi’s sons and the head of the Gaddafi Foundation, a charity that includes a human rights committee, the Libyan regime has, in recent years, sought to reconcile itself with former political opponents, leading to the release of hundreds of prisoners since 2007.

    1. Al-Allagi, , Libyan Minister of Justice and Human Rights, was the first representative of Libya to take the floor following the UN’s recognition of Libya’s new government, the National Transitional Council (NTC).

      Al-Allagi added that the NTC is willing to fully cooperate with the Council’s Commission of Inquiry into human rights crimes in the country.

    2. Al Qaeda Suspect Caught in Sudan
      There Is More Than One 'Al-Liby' - Don't Confuse Them
      Anas al-Liby, Al Qaeda And MI6

      British intelligence paid large sums of money to an al-Qaeda cell in Libya in a doomed attempt to assassinate Colonel Gadaffi in 1996 and thwarted early attempts to bring Osama bin Laden to justice.... two French intelligence experts ......reveal that the first Interpol arrest warrant for bin Laden was issued by Libya in March 1998.

      According to journalist Guillaume Dasquié and Jean-Charles Brisard, an adviser to French President Jacques Chirac, British and US intelligence agencies buried the fact that the arrest warrant had come from Libya ....... Five months after the warrant was issued, al-Qaeda killed more than 200 people in the truck bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania....

      The Libyan al-Qaeda cell included Anas al-Liby, who remains on the US government's most wanted list with a reward of $25 million for his capture. He is wanted for his involvement in the African embassy bombings. Al-Liby was with bin Laden in Sudan before the al-Qaeda leader returned to Afghanistan in 1996.

      Astonishingly, despite suspicions that he was a high-level al-Qaeda operative, al-Liby was given political asylum in Britain and lived in Manchester until May of 2000..... "

      Britain had even, according to the former MI5 agent David Shayler, paid £100,000 to an al-Qaida cell in Libya to assassinate Gadafy in 1996, and then granted asylum to a member of the cell named Anas al-Liby, who lived in Manchester until 2000."

      Anas Al-Liby recently lived in the United Kingdom, where he has political asylum. He is believed to currently be in Afghanistan. Speaks Arabic and English. Indicted for: conspiracy to kill United States nationals, to murder, to destroy buildings and property of the United States, and to destroy National Defense utilities of the United States


    3. A veteran al Qaeda operative indicted in connection with the bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa is alive and well in Libya, according to Western intelligence sources.

      Abu Anas al Libi, 48, has been seen in the capital, Tripoli, the sources say, and there is concern that he may have been tasked with establishing an al Qaeda network in Libya. It's unclear whether Libya's government is aware of his presence, or whether it has been approached by Western governments seeking al Libi's arrest.

      One Libyan official told CNN he didn't know whether al Libi was back in Tripoli but was aware that he had been in Afghanistan.

      Counterterrorism analysts tell CNN that al Libi may not have been apprehended because of the delicate security situation in much of Libya, where former jihadists - especially those who once belonged to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group - hold considerable sway. He is wanted in the United States, but there is no extradition treaty between the U.S. and Libya.

      Alternatively, al Libi may have dropped off the radar screen, as have several jihadist leaders in Libya - some of whom have previously been associated with al Qaeda.

      Just when al Libi returned home is unclear. According to one intelligence source, he appears to have arrived in Tripoli in the spring of last year, amid Libya's civil war. According to this source, a Western intelligence agency had placed al Libi under surveillance and had taken photographs of him. But back in December 2010, before the outbreak of unrest, Libyan authorities told the United Nations al Qaeda Sanctions Committee that al Libi had returned, even providing a Tripoli street address for him.

      Whether he is still active in jihadist circles is unclear.

      In August, a report prepared by the U.S. Federal Research Division for the Library of Congress said that while al Libi's whereabouts were unknown, he was "most likely involved in al Qaeda strategic planning and coordination between AQSL (al Qaeda Senior Leadership) and Libyan Islamist militants who adhere to al Qaeda's ideology."

      Whatever his current activities, al Libi's return to Libya is likely to heighten concern about the growing role of jihadist groups there after the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. CNN has been told of no evidence linking al Libi to the attack.

    Abdel Hakim al-Hassadi, once an Islamist exile from Gaddafi's Libya who spent years fighting on the side of the Taliban in Afghanistan, greets guests in his living room in the eastern Libyan city of Darna.

    The town's residents boast that they sent more men to fight in the insurgency during the Iraq war than any other city in Libya.

    The fact that Darnah's most powerful man in the post-Gaddafi era happens to be a former associate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the assassinated leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, doesn't do a whole lot to void the stereotype.


    Al-Hassadi, 46, was the commander of the Abu Slim Martyrs Brigade, which fought on the eastern front line against forces loyal to the late Muammar Gaddafi during Libya's war last year.
    It was Darnah's biggest brigade, and al-Hassadi says that most of the local fighters still view him as their leader.


    As to his goals, Hakim al-Sadi explained to Fouchet that he had rejoined the jihad in order to “cut Gaddafi’s throat and establish an Islamic state.

    5. Darnah has reason to be touchy. The town has a long history of Islamic militancy, including a revolt against Colonel Qaddafi’s rule led by Islamists in the mid-1990s that resulted in a vicious crackdown.

      Activists from here are credited with starting the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which later announced that it was affiliating with Al Qaeda, and which sent militants like Mr. Qumu to fight in Afghanistan.

      Most famously, though, Darnah has a claim to being the world’s most productive recruiting ground for suicide bombers.

      An analysis of 600 suicide bombers in Iraq by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point found that of 440 who listed their hometowns in a recruiting roster, 52 were from Darnah, the most of any city, with Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 40 times as populous, as the next biggest source, sending 51.

      In addition to Mr. Qumu, local residents say the Darnah Brigade is led by Abdul-Hakim al-Hasadi, another Libyan thought to be a militant who was in Afghanistan during the Taliban’s rule, when Al Qaeda had training camps there.

    1. With the onset of the 2001 war in Afghanistan, members
      of the LIFG, like those from other militant groups in the
      area, were forced to flee.
      Many LIFG activists fled to Iran and then on to other parts of the world.

      Some, including the group’s spiritual leader, Abu Munder Al-Saidi, and its emir, Abdullah Sadeq, were arrested in the Far East, the former in Hong Kong and the latter in Thailand; they
      were handed over to Libyan authorities in early 2004.

      In 2007, as part of his “reform and repent” program, Saif

      He brought Islamic scholars to the Abu Salim prison, in-cluding Sheikh Ali Al-Salabi and Noman Bin Othman, a former LIFG veteran based in the UK, to try to convince it to renounce violence in exchange for release.

      In August 2009, after protracted negotiations, the LIFG issued a set of doctrinal revisions in a lengthy document that foreswore
      past practices and renounced the use of weapons against
      the state.
      As a result, LIFG members and leaders were set


  78. http://i48.tinypic.com/28iw5xy.jpg

    the coup was scheduled 14 feb 1996


    expected control of libiya end march 1996


    MI6 had indeed been behind the assassination plot and had turned to the LIFG's leader Abu Abdullah Sadiq
    Abu Abdallah Sadiq. :
    That is the nom de guerre of the leader of the then banned Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, Abdelhakim Belhadj, who is now head of the Tripoli Military Council in the post-revolutionary Libyan government and a key western ally.

  79. The head of the assassination team :
    The Libiya based Abdal Muhaymeen, a veteran of the Afghan resistance


    Significantly, it was the Qadafi regime that in March 1998 urged Interpol to issue the first arrest warrant for Bin Laden.
    It did so in response to the LIFG’s presumed murder of a German intelligence officer, Silvan Becker, and his wife in Libya in March 1994, some eighteen months before Britain began collaborating with the group.
    Interpol then issued a red notice on Bin Laden and three of his Libyan associates.

    Yet, according to two French intelligence experts, Guillaume Dasquié and Jean-Charles Brisard, the British and US intelligence agencies buried the arrest warrant and played down the threat due to MI6’s involvement in the Libyan coup plot.

    1. Abd al-Muhaymen, a Libyan fundamentalist who had trained and fought in Afghanistan, thus having access to CIA and British intelligence who organised the Afghan Mujahedine operations at the time, was in charge of assassinating Gaddafi.

      Mr Shayler said Abd al-Muhaymen was to detonate a bomb under Gaddafi's car, but the bomb went off under the wrong car killing his body guards and civilian bystanders.

      The account differs from that of a Libyan dissident group who sent a fax to the Saudi owned Al-Hyat news paper in London claiming that the attack was carried out with Kalshinkovs and rocket grenades (on the wrong car). - The Libyan dissents re in the habit of exaggerating.

      However, the timing and location are much the same and no reports of a similar incident in the area at the time have leaked out of Libya.

      Abd elMuhaymen belongs the Islamic Fighting Group (IFG).

      Several had escaped just months before when the Abu Salim prison in Tripoli was stormed by Islamic militants.

      The IFG presented the most serious challenge Gadaffi had faced since he took power in 1969.

      Shayler, who was on the Libya desk of MI5, said he was shocked to be told by his MI6 opposite number about the British role in the plot.

      The British government has denied Shayler's story, as have retired security officials. What is the truth?

      Why would it want to kill Gadaffi now?

      British interests in north Africa would be served by having Gadaffi out of the way, not least as a solution to the ''Lockerbie'' problem. Lifting the sanctions would permit British and American companies to drill for oil in Libya, but Gadaffi is in the way.

    2. Analysts say there may well have been sufficient reason to want to overthrow Gaddafi during his first years in power. He seized control of Libya from its pro-British royal family at the head of a clique of junior officers in 1969 and quickly became contender for Arab leadership when Colonel Nasser of Egypt died in 1970.

      The seizure of British assets and the rising value of Libyan oil made him all the more of a bogeyman.

      The operation to assassinate Gadaffi was code-named ``The Hilton Assignment'' and was put together with money from the former Libyan royal family

      He funded a freelance operation headed by a former Czech secret serviceman, George Strakaty, who wanted him to legitimise an arms shipment.

      Anthony Divall, a veteran former MI6 officer, told the Observer he was indirectly involved in one of the first attempts to assassinate Gadaffi in 1971.

      Mr Divall said the MI6 bosses were likely to be `` well aware'' the operation, claimed by Mr Shayler, from the beginning, as indeed was the CIA.
      Divall was asked to provide paperwork, organise the logistics and move an arms cache that consisted of rifles, machine-guns, pistols, Semtex explosives and detonators for '' the Hilton assignment''.


    3. David Shayler’s rev­el­a­tions that MI6 tried to blow up Col­onel Gad­dafi were given strong cre­dence by US intel­li­gence sources yes­ter­day.  They insisted that, des­pite claims to the con­trary, the Brit­ish secret ser­vice was fin­an­cing the group behind the attempt on the Libyan leader’s life. 

      [Accord­ing to the US] the Brit­ish ser­vice [MI6] turned to the Fight­ing Islamic Group [FIG] and its leader, Abu Abdul­lah Sadiq, who was liv­ing in London.” 

      The same day, The Sunday Times repor­ted that it had iden­ti­fied one of the per­pet­rat­ors of the attack as Abd Al Muhay­meen. 

      Accord­ing to the paper, he was a Libyan ‘fun­da­ment­al­ist’ or Islamic extrem­ist, to use MI5 phras­eo­logy, who had trained and fought in Afgh­anistan.  On the day, he also chose the tim­ing of the attack. 

      “He waited in ambush with a group of feday­deen from a force known as the Islamic Fight­ing Group. […]  The group appeared to be gain­ing in strength and dar­ing, mostly due to the expert­ise of Afghan vet­er­ans such as Al Muhay­meen. […] 

      As the con­voy approached, Al Muhay­meeen gave the word and the sounds of battle erup­ted.  When it was over, Gad­dafi had sur­vived yet again.  So had Al Muhay­meen.  But sev­eral of their men lay dead on each side.  So did bystanders.”


    4. the Libyan was codenamed TUNWORTH , a senior mem­ber of Libyan intel­li­gence, who had walked into the Brit­ish Embassy in Tunis


      a senior member of the Libyan had walked into the British embassy in and asked to meet the resident MI6 officer.

      the Libyan had asked for funds to lead a group of Islamic Extremists in an attempted coup, which would involve the assassination of Colonel Qadhafi, the head of the Libyan state.

      in exchange for MI6's support, the Libyan agreed to hand over the two Lockerbie suspects when he took power after the assassination of Colonel Qadhafi.

      although the Libyan led the group, he was not an Islamic Extremist himself.

      Accord­ing to the report, Tun­worth also admit­ted con­tacts between the plot­ters and Islamic extrem­ists, described as ‘Libyan stu­dents’ and ‘Libyan vet­er­ans who served in Afgh­anistan’.



      My notes on CX document - Cryptome

      According to Shayler, MI6 passed £100,000 to the al-Qaeda plotters.

    In the summer of 1985 the "Washington Post" published on its front page a long article by Bob Woodward and Paul Bandwarfok which reported that the US State Department had taken extraordinary actions in the summer of 1985, including sending for the American ambassador to Egypt and putting him in charge of a covert operation.

    According to the article, an American-Egyptian military action directed from the White House, whose purpose was an Egyptian invasion of Libya and the occupation of one-half of Libya's territory with American assistance, was to be cancelled. This plan had aimed at removing Qadhafi from power.

    This operation was recommended by the following persons: Robert McFarlin, advisor for national security; his assistant, John Poindexter; a third man, Donald Foster.

    This covert plan to overthrow the popular democratic system in Libya operated under the code name "Flower".

      Mr. Magariaf is a politician and former ambassador to India who spent nearly 30 years exiled in America. He led the National Front for the Salvation of Libya that was purportedly financed by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia and responsible for several failed attempts to oust Col. Gadhafi over the years.

      1984 embassy demonstration/On 17 April 1984, the NFSL organised a demonstration of Libyan dissidents outside the Libyan embassy in London. During the demonstration, shots were fired from the embassey into the group of protestors, striking eleven people, including one of the police officers controlling the demonstration, Yvonne Fletcher, who died shortly afterward. Fletcher's murder quickly led to the severing of diplomatic relations between Britain and Libya.

      Three weeks later, on 8 May 1984, NFSL's commandos took part in a daring attack on Gaddafi's headquarters at Bab al-Aziziyah barracks near Tripoli in an attempt to assassinate the Libyan leader. The attack was thwarted when the group's leader, Ahmed Ibrahim Ihwas, was captured when trying to enter Libya at the Tunisian border.

      Although the coup attempt failed and Gaddafi escaped unscathed, dissident groups claimed that some eighty Libyans, Cubans, and East Germans had been killed in the operation. However, some 2,000 people were arrested in Libya following the attack, and eight were hanged publicly.


      The NFSL Executive Committee is currently led by Secretary General Ibrahim Abdulaziz Sahad,
      who was re-elected for his second term during the 5th National Congress held in July 2007 in the United States.[7].

      Sahad has appointed Mohammed Ali Abdallah as his Deputy, and selected four others to be members of the Executive Committee and to lead the different commissions formed by the Executive Committee.


      The Sahad's NCLO began organizing the February 17th "Day of Rage" right on cue as Egypt fell so the mainstream media apparatus could swing around and put the focus on Libya.

      Conveniently, the media needs only move from Cairo to Egypt's western border and wait for Sahad's men on the ground to secure them a base of operations, presumably in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi.

    NFSL Leadership

    Ashour Shamis, Libyan exile journalist in London
    Secretary General Dr. Mohammad al Magharief
    Col. Abdoulgassim Khalifa Haftar
    Commandant Abdoulsalam Cherafdine
    Former Prime Minister Abdelhamid Bakouch
    Mohammad Saifal-Nasr, Shaikh of the Awlad Sulayman Tribe and former Governor of Sabha

    The military might of the NFSL was at its height in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1987 several hundred Libyan soldiers and a large quantity of Libyan military equipment were captured by the Chadian Army. Libya and Chad were involved in a long standing dispute over the Aozou Strip, a territory belived to hold large uranium reserves. The Libyan prisoners were recruited into a "Contra" force led by Col. Abdoulgassim Khalifa Haftar. Training was provided by the U.S. CIA and Chadian Army officers. Funding was provided by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. The main base was at wonderfully named Ouadi Doum, located south of the Aozou Strip but still in far northern Chad.



    Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG)
    The LIFG seeks to replace the current Libyan regime with a hard-line Islamic state. The group is also part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by Al Qa’ida. The group has mounted several operations inside Libya, including a 1996 attempt to assassinate Mu’ammar Qadhafi.

    Under the Terrorism Act 2000, the Home Secretary may proscribe an organisation if they believe it is concerned in terrorism. For the purposes of the Act, this means that it:
    commits or participates in acts of terrorism; prepares for terrorism;
    promotes or encourages terrorism (including the unlawful glorification of terrorism); or is otherwise concerned in terrorism.

    His role within the organization came to light through testimony from a fellow al Qaeda operative who described al Libi's visit to the Kenyan capital of Nairobi in 1993. He is alleged to have conducted surveillance of possible Western targets, including the U.S. Embassy

      Reason for the clashes in Sabha was the "arrest" of four Tabus by militias from Awlad Suleiman tribe.

  89. The Libyan Constitutional Union :
    Its Establishment and Development (10)

    As I said earlier, I spent most of the month of Ramadan and Eid El-fitr in the Moroccan capital where many of the members of the NFSL had their homes or were staying in its hotels.

    I made a quick visit back to Britain during which I met Mr Abdulhamid Albakoush who visited me at my home in Manchester.(1)

    One day I received a phone call from Haj Ghaith Saif Al-Nasr

    As well as being one of the notable members of the Saif Al-Nasr family, Haj Ghaith was also one of the founders and the prominent leaders of the NFSL, and its deputy general secretary.

    In reference to the call of the LCU for unity around the person of the King
    and the renewal of allegiance to him,
    Haj Ghaith Saif Al-Nasr
    said, that they, the members of the Saif Al-Nasr family, were Senussis by nature
    and that the Senussi ethos ran in their blood and if it had happened that a vein under the skin of any of them was found without this type of blood then it would be cut off.

    He continued, that they did not accept, under any circumstances, anybody to lecture them on their family’s loyalty to the Senussi movement in general and to King Idris in particular.


    {Letter to ]The esteemed Mr. Saif Al-Nasr Abdul-Jalil :

    I would be delighted and honoured, and so would all members of the Libyan Constitutional Union, if you would cooperate with it to raise the banner of the national struggle together.

    For the deep-rooted Saif Al-Nasr family, which is synonymous in Libyan history with defending the country and fighting for the homeland, should be in the forefront every time Libya calls for giving and sacrifice.

    Waiting for your reply, please accept the respect and appreciation of the chairman and members of the Libyan Constitutional Union.
    Sincerely /Mohamed Abdu Ben Ghalbon /5/2/1982

  90. Many Qataris were literally thrown out of the Cyrenaican region by the local Government under Sheikh Ahmed Zubair, of the moderate and modernizing Sanussiyyah sect of Islam.

    Only in Tripoli do the Qataris still have some sway with the Islamist Chairman of the Interim National Transitional Council (NTC), Mustafa Mohammed Abdul Jalil.

    Jalil, a former Minister of Justice in the Qadhafi Administration, claims to be a Sanussi, but in fact acts against the Sanussiyyah tenets by advocating for the more neo-salafist elements.

    , Cyrenaica and Fezzan are culturally strongly disposed to trade and contacts with Europe and non-Muslim cultures; that is the basis of the San- ussiyyah sect which dominates those regions.

    The Tripolitanians are less Sanussi in orientation, and the present Islamists in power in Tripoli are more fundamental in their Islamic interpretation, and therefore less inclined to regard Westerners with the same hospitality as the Cyrenaicans and Fezzan citizens.

    . But even the liberal (ie: pro- Sanussi) National Front Party, led by the elder statesman, Mohamed el-Magariaf,

    won two of the 80 party seats,
    but has a strong commitment to working with individual parliamentarians committed to avoiding a consolidation of power in Tripoli’s hands.

    New Pentagon Report: Al-Qaeda Has Established A “Core Network” In Libya

    Colonel Gaddafi’s son added: “You people have no idea what you are unleashing here.”

  92. The Cyrenaica has a long border with Egypt.

    The Qutuan and the Aulad Ali tribes of the borderland possess vital and interconnected tribal networks across the border and they are involved in numerous transnational activities.

    It is no exception that libyan groups are involved in political processes in Egypt and vice-versa.

    Until today a great deal of the support to the libyan people was organized by the tribes in Egypt.

    Similar to Yemen the Salafiyya groups do have tribal backgrounds in Cyrenaica and Libya.

    This is particularly true for the cities of Darna and Al-Beyda where LIFG has a certain tradition but also counts for Salafiya groups that operate within the framework of the tribes between Egypt and Libya


    Furthermore the power of certain tribal leaders is enhanced by tribal militia build on former revolutionary brigades

    Thus tribal politicians have gained a significant empowerment. This empowerment is documented by the tribal influence in National Transitional Council (NTC) and also by the recognition and support of tribal leaders by foreign powers such as Qatar

    Hence alliances between tribal politicians and the Salafiyya might occur and will contribute to a conservative Islamic-tribal current in the future.

    The Ikhwan and the LIFG command Islamic brigades and militia.

    The execution of General Abd Al Fatah Younis in July 2011 (with signs of severe torture that hint to a islamist revolutionary brigade) was widely perceived as a political message to all opponents of Islam.

    After Younis‟ death General Suleiman Mahmud became his designated successor.

    However his nomination was stopped by the influence of the Muslim Brothers and the LIFG.



  93. "We won, and we're so happy," Suleiman said

    Suleiman, 64, is the mother of Mohamed al Hami, a legendary Islamist fighter whose covert group, the Libya Islamic Martyrs Movement, launched a string of deadly attacks against Gadhafi's regime in the 1990s.


    The rebellion came a few years too late for four of Suleiman's sons — Enas, Abdel Latif, Ahmed and Akram. In 2005, she said, they saw no escape from the never-ending cycle of persecution, prison and killing in Libya,
    so the four brothers joined the pipeline of foreign fighters that ran through Egypt and Syria into Iraq, where Sunni Muslim extremists formed an insurgency that killed thousands of U.S. soldiers and even more Iraqis, both military and civilian.

    Security fears also have been raised in the town of Sousa, south of Benghazi, after members of Ansar al Shariah, the militia alleged to be behind the attack on the U.S. consulate, were accused of killing four policemen during a grenade attack at a roadblock.

    According to Libyan media reports, security force members surrounded about 150 Salafist gunmen, alleged to have links with al Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM, holed up in the Sousa mountains.

    The Salafists include former Guantanamo Bay detainee and Ansar al Shariah leader Sufian Ben Qamu, who reports said had allegedly ordered the killing of the policemen.


    Colonel Hamid Hassi, the commander of the government forces, said that there were some 150 militants holed up in Sousa, equipped with 17 armed vehicles.

  95. the commander for anti-Gadhafi forces in eastern Libya:HAMID AL-HASI

    Wednesday, March 16, 2011 08:12:00 HAMID AL-HASI (translated): On the ground we have better forces than Gaddafi and we think we can take him if it is a war on the ground and it is land forces.

    Abdulsalam al-Hasi
    So when a rebel officer on the front line called in one recent morning in need of help, Brig. Gen. Abdulsalam al-Hasi walked down the corridor and asked the American and European advisers in his command center to request a NATO airstrike — and then prayed for quick action.

    “Sometimes they are late, very late,” said Hasi, shaking his head.

    The command center is inside a brown, one-story building on a large government-owned campus. Rebel officials requested that the exact location not be revealed for security reasons. On one end of the corridor is Hasi’s spacious office; on the other end is a room in which the Western advisers work.

    Hasi said the advisers include Americans, British, French, Spaniards and Qataris, most of whom appear to have a direct line to NATO officials in Brussels.

    Officers from the CIA and special operations troops from Britain, France and other allies are also thought to be working on the ground with the rebels.

    Hasi’s analysts field phone calls from all over Libya, collecting information on movements by Gaddafi’s forces, accounts of deaths, and pleas for fuel and other assistance.
    03/21/2011  The committee rejects foreign troops on the ground, but we encourage the (aerial) bombardments of Gadhafi's army," Ahmed El-Hasi, a spokesman for the February 17 opposition coalition, told news agencies in the eastern city of Benghazi.

    3/22/2011 / Adil al-Hasi, a rebelcommander, said he was given orders not to send his men into battle until allied jets had struck Gaddafi’s forces.

    In the end, though, almost every commander and fighter reached the same conclusion: Don’t push forward. Let the allied warplanes  destroy Gaddafi’s forces.


    An official at NATO’s operational headquarters in Naples said information from the rebels did filter up to the alliance’s command.
    “Those guys do pass information back up to us. . . . That may be a little less than some people would like,”

  96. Salem Al-Barrani Dirbi of Al-Qaeda is now the leader of Abu Salim Martyrs Brigade, which was kept in check by the previous regime, spoke openly in this video (wearing blue), telling his story about how he is now free from the previous regime after having lived in hiding in the mountains since 1996; he boasts about living freely in Benghazi today.

    Also noteworthy is Abdul Baset Azzouz. Known for his vicious and cunning abilities, he was the first adviser to Ayman Al-Zawahiri and became the leader of Al-Qaeda in Darnah, Libya. He can be seen in this video, giving his testimony from Libya (wearing yellow). Azzouz can even be seen recruiting entire communities in Libya to join the jihadists.

    Then you have Abdul Hakim Al-Hassadi (right), member of the Jama’at Islamiyeh fighting forces in Libya, who left in 1995 out of fear of the previous Gaddafi regime. He fled to Afghanistan where he stayed until he returned in 2011, with the blessings of the Obama administration and NATO forces.

    Al-Hassadi was accompanied by Muftah Al-Dawadi (left), who was an inmate in Abu Salim for his membership in Al-Qaeda after carrying out terrorist operations in Sibrata; he has now become the main conduit to facilitate the production of false travel documents for terrorists.

    Perhaps most troubling is Abdul Wahhab Hassan Qayed, the brother of Abu Bakr Hassan Qayed (aka Abu Yahya al-Libi), the number 2 man in Al-Qaeda who was killed by U.S. drones. In the photo to the left, Wahhab is seen to the right and his now deceased brother to the left. Abdul Wahhab now works in the Libyan Interior Ministry in charge of Border Control and Strategic Institutions in Libya.

    There is also Sami Mustafa Khalil Al-Sa’di (on right), who obtained his degree in Sharia from Pakistan in 1999. He is now a member of The Assembly of Scholars in Libya after being released from Abu Salim prison on August 20th, 2011 for his membership in Al-Qaeda. He currently holds the position of Guardian of The Martyrs Families in Libya.

    We also have Sadik Belhaj (far left in photo) and Al-Sadeek Al-Ghaythi (near left) – leaders of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and formerly close associates of Bin Laden – in charge of border security who were given large sums of money to create a special, separate force outside of the government’s reach by the ministry of defense and by what the Obama administration considers to be a moderate leader, Abdul Hakim Belhaj, who recently broke his silence on Radio Darnah on the Samir Shalwi program one day after Stevens was killed, according to pro-Qaddafi dissidents whose claims (here and here). This appearance was also confirmed by Congressman Mike Rogers.

    Salem Al-Shaykhi (right) is another who was released from Abu Salim prison after serving two years (1986-1988) for his Al-Qaeda affiliation. Now, the Libyan government has appointed him as head of the Islamic Waqf.



  97. The Mess We Left Behind in Libya



  98. 29 December 2012: Deputy Prime Minister Awad Barasi


    About that Libya Shield Brigade which fought
    under the black flag of al Qaeda during the February 17 Revolution :

    As part of this arrangement, Mangoush often provides the brigades direct stocks of weapons and ammunition, they said.

    Al-Gharabi and bin-Ahmed support the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood's Justice and Construction Party backed candidate Minister of Electricity Awad Al Barasi for Prime Minister and they said that.

    if elected, Al Barasi would appoint Fawzi Bukatif, Commander of the February 17 Brigade, as Minister of Defense.

    Bukatif's appointment would open the MOD and other security ministries and offices to plum-appointments for his most favored brigade commanders -- giving February 17 and Libya Shield tacit control of the armed forces.

  99. Obama Provides Weapons to the Enemy

    According to a Dec. 5, 2012 New York Times article,
    in the Spring of 2011 President Obama approved
    the provision of weapons by Qatar and the U.A.E. to
    the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, led by Abdel Hakim
    According to a Wall Street Journal article on
    Oct. 17, 2011, 20,000 tons of weapons were provided
    not to the Transitional National Council, but directly to
    militias run by Belhadj in 18 shipments.

    A dozen other Qatari-funded shipments came to Libyan rebels allied
    with the LIFG via Sudan.

    The shipments continued in September even after the fall of Tripoli.

    According to the New York Times article Obama insisted that the
    weapons not be weapons produced in the U.S., so that
    they would not be traceable to the U.S.

    According to the New York Times, these weapons are now being shipped
    to Al-Qaeda in Syria and Mali

  101. Senior Policeman Killed In Western Libya

    Kamouka was gunned down outside his home in Siburata.

    The security chief of Libya's northwestern city of Siburata was gunned down
    on Sunday by unknown militants, the Libyan Interior Ministry said.

    It added that police colonel Hassan Kamouka was shot several times outside his home in Siburata.

    "We will arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice," the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

    Libya is quickly turning into a dangerous country almost two weeks after fierce fighting erupted in the capital Tripoli between militias and troops loyal to retired general Khalifa Haftar.

    Foreign diplomats are leaving Libya in droves, while foreign governments advise their nationals against staying in the country, which has been suffering turmoil since the downfall of the Muammar Gaddafi regime in 2011.
