Those Libyan Elections

by Felix July 15 2012
A headline in the Guardian, July 14 : Mahmoud Jibril seeks coalition with Libya's Islamists after his poll win makes it clear that this was the "wrong result" in a bogus election in which there were no candidates with links to the past Government.
"Nobody saw this coming," said Dirk Vandewalle, a US academic and former adviser to UN special envoy for Libya, Ian Martin. , i.e. democracy producing the wrong result. Normally this needs a post-election "correction". So Mahmoud Jibril, who trounced the Muslim Brotherhood party, "Justice and Construction" is now seeking a grand coalition. No mention of Abdelhakim Belhaj of the Al-Watan , or Homeland or Libyan National party in that article. So what is he up to?
Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi of Brasenose College Oxford also mis-read the tea leaves: Rethinking Libya, July 12 2012, The American Spectator: It appears that I underestimated the stigma associated with ties to foreign powers for Islamists (i.e. Qatar, and its sycophantic media channel, Al-Jazeera...) However, Bloomberg noted on July 10, U.S.-Educated Academic Leads Early Libyan Election Results: “The Muslim Brotherhood isn’t doing as well in Libya, as they don’t have the same grass-roots organization as in Egypt or Tunisia to gain and mobilize support,” Emad Mostaque, a London- based emerging-markets strategist at Religare Noah, said today by e-mail. “Voting in Libya has gone along tribal and familial lines......Abdurrahman Sewehli, leader of the Union for Homeland party, which came in first in the coastal city of Misrata, yesterday ruled out working with Jibril, saying he had been too close to the previous government. However, as Tony Cartalucci noted also on July 10, in The Libyan Election Farce,All candidates [are] neo-imperial candidates It is instrtuctive to note the nonsense spouted by Fox News on July 7,before any results were known Outcome of Libyan elections could spell trouble for US: According to news reports this week, the emir of a US-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization [Belhaj, my reading of foreign being US in this context...] is edging closer to securing a leadership role in Libya’s new government.
They pretend they don't want it, but deep down they do. Watch Belhaj pop up in the coalition. As the New York Times reported back in September 2011, Islamists’ Growing Sway Raises Questions for Libya, Mr. Belhaj has become so much an insider lately that he is seeking to unseat Mahmoud Jibril, the American-trained economist who is the nominal prime minister of the interim government, after Mr. Jibril obliquely criticized the Islamists. . Insider??? Where, with whom? To continue with the article by Rod Nordland and David D Kirkpatrick: “Jibril will be gone soon,” one aide to Mr. Belhaj said. And Mr.[Ali Al-] Sallabi [now leader of Belhaj's Al-Watan party] said that Mr. Jibril, along with the American-educated finance and oil minister, Ali Tarhouni, were ushering in a “new era of tyranny and dictatorship,” Al Jazeera reported.
Stop press. As Umar Khan has pointed out, The Future of Libya after elections, July 13 2012, FIKRA, the Jalil - NTC deal just prior to the election entrusted the law making part of government to an equal three-way split of 60 seats divided between the three old divisions, thus sending the balance away from Tripoli region, a sop to the federalists of Benghazi. Also, Widely believed to be a result of bargaining ["imput" from the Brigades no doubt], a minister from each of the two cities [of Misrata and Zintan] was awarded the influential roles of Minister of Defense and Minister of the Interior". How this move will reign in the militias remains to be seen. Only 62% of voters could be bothered with the election, many having no choice they liked, and Belhaj has gone to Tunisia to meet the Ennahda Movement as his Muslim Brotherhood claim 50% of the invidual seats in Libya.


  1. #Libya: Although #Jibril called for a “grand coalition”, Sawan's JDP appears reluctant to participate http://blog.inkerman.com/index.php/2012/07/13/libya-passes-latest-test-in-democracy-but-how-will-jibrils-winning-moderate-party-fare/

    Sawan’s words are dangerous. Thuwars, or revolutionaries, in places like Misrata are deeply suspicious of the U.S.-educated Jibril, and Sawan’s remarks are riling them up further. “His comments are alarming,” says Omar Bakhet, a former U.N. diplomat working in Libya on a reconciliation mission for the European NGO International Democracy and Election Assistance.
    “It is almost as though Sawan is encouraging a hit on Jibril,” protests an Alliance adviser who requested anonymity. “They aren’t the kind of things you should be saying when things are so volatile and every able-bodied male has a couple of Kalashnikovs.”

  2. http://sjlendman.blogspot.nl/2012/07/washingtons-man-in-tripoli.html
    In early 2011, reports suggested Jibril urged Western intervention to oust Gaddafi. After bombing began, he reportedly met Senator John Kerry (D. MA) in Cairo. 

    He outlined his vision for Libya’s future. Kerry chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Jibril also met Clinton and French President Nicolas Sarkozy. 

    Washington wants Libya transformed its way. What it says goes. Opposition won't be tolerated. Jabril was installed to assure it.

    He heads Libya's so-called National Forces Alliance. Democracy isn't part of its agenda. Washington tolerates it nowhere.

    One analyst described his dead banker eyes. He's a technocrat, an imperial tool. Before he defected, he headed Gaddafi's National Planning Council and National Economic Development Board. Other ministers reported to him. 

  3. Mahmoud Elwarfally, the rebel "prime minister" speaks before the Brookings Institution declaring the Libyan rebellion was a natural product of "the globalizational process."

  4. Attacks, abductions, boycott & bloodshed 'pave way' to Libyan democracy


    About six months before the conflict erupted in Libya, Mahmoud Jibiril actually met with Bernard-Henri Lévy in Australia to discuss forming the Transitional Council and deposing Colonel Qaddafi. [4]


  5. Good article, good comments, thanks. I read it all but have no comment. It's hot here today.

  6. Perhaps the most important issue related to Libya's phony election is the support it received from well-known newspapers. The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The London Times (or is it just Times?) praised the election.

    Of course, the election wasn't legitimate, and it makes sense to explain why--in an article, not a comment. The explanation is for people who did not follow the war. Maybe the article could be titled "The Top Ten Reasons the Libyan Election Was an Exercise in Bullshit"!

    That the editorial boards are willing to advance such absurd notions as the election in Libya was democratic says a great deal about how little freedom of press there really is.

    If there is no truth, there is no democracy.

  8. Sorry ... New Video about Gaddafi [ in ambulance ] was release today. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1f9_1342464674 This Misratas are UNPEOPLE ... Sub-Humans

  9. Mahmoud Jibril, head of the National Forces Alliance (NFA), has formally refuted allegations of inappropriately close relations with the US and Qatari governments in a statement posted on his official Facebook page.

    The criticism follows a visit by the US Deputy Secretary of State, William Burns, to the NFA headquarters during his recent visit to Tripoli, which Jibril has insisted was purely for the purpose of conveying his congratulations to the alliance.


    Mischievous speculation had taken place in various media outlets as well as on social networks that ‘”the Americans were here to appoint the next government”, and had gone as far as naming the first deputy prime minister, Mustafa Abushagur as the preferred US choice for prime minister.

    Dr.Mustafa Abushagur ‏@MustafaAG https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/1878816509/DPM2_normal.jpg
    We have decided in our cabinet meeting today that the weekend will be Friday and Saturday starting tomorrow.

    1. APRIL 19: The head of the National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdel Jalil, met with Italian foreign minister Franco Frattini. Following the meeting, Frattini announced that “a meeting of the international contact group on Libya in Rome early next month would discuss ‘legal instruments to allow the sale of oil products’” as well as funnel assets owned by Qaddafi to the rebels

      During the meeting, Jalil also told the Italian foreign minister that 10,000 people had been killed and up to 55,000 wounded in the conflict so far.
      APRIL 14: On Thursday, rebel opposition council member Suleiman Fortea said that “The West must take fresh action to stop the killing of civilians in Misrata and consider arming Libya's rebels or sending troops."

      After meeting with French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Fortea stated, "It's not possible to leave it like this. They have to protect people with any means, whether they have to go on the ground, go with different weapons, different machinery or supplying weapons to the local people, to the army in Libya.

      Ousama Abushagur, a 31-year-old Libyan telecom executive :
      APRIL 13: Opposition forces have obtained access to Qaddafi’s cell phone network and have reestablished their own communications, with the help of Ousama Abushagur, a 31-year-old Libyan telecom executive who first drafted the plan. The new network will provide “more than two million Libyans their first connections to each other and the outside world.” Abushagur says that he “drew up a diagram on the back of a napkin for a plan to infiltrate Libyana, pirate the signal and carve out a network free of Tripoli's control.” The United Arab Emirates and Qatar have subsequently assisted in purchasing several million dollars of telecommunications equipment. (Wall Street Journal)

    2. Dr. Abushagur :The commercial environment in America sets the gold-standard for openness and transparency, and we could certainly benefit from the expertise of American firms to make improvements in these areas.




    3. The president of RIT Dubai is returning to his homeland to serve as the deputy prime minister in the newly liberated country of Libya.

      The National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) hosted a business luncheon featuring Libya’s Deputy Prime Minister, Mustafa Abushagur on June 4.

      The discussion drew a crowd of over 150 American business and government leaders to the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, DC.



    4. To these historical elements, let’s add that a meeting was held in Cairo,
      the second week of February 2011,
      around John McCain, Joe Lieberman and Bernard-Henry Levy, figures like Mahmoud Jibril Libya (then number two in the Libyan Jamahiriya government) and Syrian personalities like Malik al-Abdeh and Ammar Qurabi.

      30 July 2012, Benghazi, the main accused of the murder of General Abdelfateh Younes, the rebel Aboukatada Afhgani escaped from prison.

       Bearded men who presented themselves as battalion commanders came to see him. They gave him clothes to change.
      He withdrew the prison uniform and went out with them from the front door. The prison guards discovered that his cell was empty and escaped.

    In selling Libya’s elections as free and fair, the media have had little to say about a report by Amnesty International published as Libyans were preparing to vote: ‘Libya: Rule of law or rule of militias?’ (July 2012), based on the findings of an Amnesty visit to Libya in May and June 2012.



    Meanwhile, many wealthy Libyans who fled the country during the civil war had yet to return, Abushagur said.

    2. On 24 February 2011 opposition politicians, former military officers, tribal leaders, academics and businessmen held a meeting in the eastern city of Al Bayda.

      The meeting was chaired by Abdul Jalil, who quit the government a few days before.

      The delegates stressed the importance of the national unity of Libya and stated that Tripoli is the capital city. يمكن Mustafa Abdul Jalil لها تأثير على Abu-Bakr al-Mansouri ?

      They discussed proposals for interim administration with many delegates asking for UN intervention in Libya. The podium at the meeting displayed the pre-Gaddafi era flag of the Kingdom of Libya (1951–1969)

      On 25 February 2011 AlJazeera reported that talks are taking place between "personalities from eastern and western Libya" to form an interim government for the post-Gadaffi era.

      On 26 February, it was reported that Abdul Jalil was leading the process of forming an interim government, to be based in Benghazi.Mr Abdul Jalil stated that "Gaddafi alone bore responsibility for the crimes that have occurred" in Libya, he also insisted on the unity of Libya and that Tripoli is the capital.

      The efforts to form an alternative government have been supported by the Libyan ambassador in the United States, Ali Suleiman Aujali. The Libyan deputy ambassador to the United Nations, Ibrahim Omar Al Dabashi, has stated that he supported a new alternative government "in principle

      Muhammad Yusef Magaraif, who had hitherto led the NFSL, was elected as the head of the party in a conference held in Benghazi.

      Their most pressing national-security concern has been to keep those affiliated with Gadhafi out of public life—

      It remains unclear what burden of proof the committee used to determine guilt.

    5. The old NFSL was established as a resistance organisation against Qaddafi in 1981. It was established on a simple two point agenda: the removal of Qaddafi from the power and the establishment of institutional democracy in Libya. The organisation had a military wing that was behind many failed assassination attempts on Qaddafi.

      Senussi : "In Benghazi alone, more than 380 young unarmed protesters sacrificed their lives before elements of the armed forces could be compelled to change sides, thus tipping the balance in favor of the liberation of eastern Libya from the forces of the dictator.

      In Baida, over 100 perished in the hands of Ghadafi-employed African mercenaries from Chad, Niger and Mali, prompting local police forces and members of the army to break ranks from the regime to protect their unarmed countrymen. "

      Several opposition spokesmen produced the paradox of racial/racist hysteria and humanitarian intervention.

  17. One analyst described his [ Jibrils] dead banker eyes. He's a technocrat, an imperial tool.

    -Youssef al-Ramis, a leading Brotherhood figure, rejected the allegations, but acknowledged that the group might not win big in elections.

    -Hisham Kreskshi, a leader of the party founded by Libya’s Muslim Brotherhood, said.....

    - Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Sawan now rejects any idea of a deal with Jibril.

    -Among Mr. Jibril’s most vocal opponents were the militia leaders from Misurata who emerged as a powerful force in the interim government because of their aggression in the fight against Colonel Qaddafi.

    The Misurata tribe has a rivalry going back generations with Mr. Jibril’s Warfalla tribe, who killed a hero from Misurata during the pre-World War II  fighting against the Italian occupation of Libya.

    -Another area of caution is the threat from extremists, either from Salafist militants,
    or from hard-line supporters of federalism

    -NTC has yet to hand over authority, something it has promised to do either on 06 or 08 August 2012, amid rumours that current NTC president  Mustafa Abdul Jalil may be reluctant to do so.

    1. One analyst described his [ Jibrils] dead banker eyes. He's a technocrat, an imperial tool:

      About six months before the conflict erupted in Libya, Mahmoud Jibiril actually met with Bernard-Henri Lévy in Australia to discuss forming the Transitional Council and deposing Colonel Qaddafi. [4]

      He described Qaddafi’s Wealth Redistribution Project as “crazy” in minutes and documents from the National Economic Development Board of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. [5]

      Jibril strongly believed that the Libyan masses were not fit to govern themselves and that an elite should always control the fate and wealth of any nation.

      When the problems erupted in Benghazi, Mahmoud Jibril immediately went to Cairo, Egypt.

      He told his colleagues that he would be back in Tripoli soon,

      In reality, he went to Cairo to meet the leaders of the Syrian National Council and Lévy.

      They were all waiting for him inside Cairo to coordinate the events in Libya and Syria.

      This is one of the reasons that the Transitional Council has recognized the Syrian National Council as the legitimate government of Syria

    Despite the lack of coverage by western corporate media the carnage continues in the failed state of Libya as various factions of CIA-supported terrorists vie for control of Libyan resources that they can sell to NATO nations for a piece of the action in the booty from this mass theft of the wealth owned by Libya's people in Gaddafi's Libya.

    Genocide of Black African workers, murder and rape are the consequence of NATO's "humanitarian" intervention. The resistance refuses to let the dream of democracy die and fights on for jamahiriya and the Green Revolution that Gaddafi championed.

  22. A Short List of HUMAN RIGHTS in the NEW LIBIYA


  23. Political repression in 'free' Libya

    The imperialist media heralded the July 7 elections in Libya as proof of a new, democratic state. They scarcely noted, if they did at all, that by the NTC’s own admission nearly 40 percent of eligible voters boycotted the elections.

    Additionally, all members of the former government who did not defect to the side of imperialism were prevented from running for office. Scores of Libyans were excluded from the list of eligible voters because of their support for the Jamahiriya government.

    Earlier this year, the NTC proposed a “glorification law,” which made praising the Gaddafi government or criticizing the anti-Gaddafi uprising an offense punishable by up to life imprisonment.

    While the law was nullified in June, its effects remain. Teachers in Libyan schools are afraid to discuss the last 42 years of their country’s history for fear of reprisal, and there are reports that history textbooks have been censored in accordance with the law.

    The reality unfolding in Libya is yet another illustration of the “freedom” and “democracy” that U.S. and NATO bombs deliver.

      ‘Public criticism of the thuwwar [revolutionaries], who are widely hailed as heroes, is uncommon.

      Even officials, activists, journalists, lawyers and victims of human rights violations who privately acknowledge the prevailing lawlessness and abuses committed by the thuwwar do not raise their concerns in public, fearing reprisals. Their fears are justified.’

      During a visit to Libya in May and June, Amnesty International found that hundreds of armed militias continue to act above the law, many refusing to disarm or join the national army or police force.

      The Libyan-Irish building a post-Gadafy country *

      Libyans constitute one of the biggest Arab communities in Ireland.

      Since the 1960s, Libyans have come to Ireland for professional or educational reasons, and many have stayed on, often marrying Irish citizens.

      A significant proportion of the Libyan community in Ireland sought political asylum here from the 1990s on.

      Several Libyans with connections to Ireland played prominent roles in last year’s uprising.

      These include Mehdi al-Harati, commander of the Tripoli Brigade, one of the main rebel units that led the advance on the Libyan capital in August.

      The men who served under al-Harati included several from Ireland who left jobs as engineers and doctors to join the revolution.

      Many others with Irish links, some with dual citizenship, fought in some of the fiercest battles of the war, treated the wounded at front-line hospitals or ferried humanitarian aid to some of the worst-affected areas. Now, a year after the uprising began, many Libyan-Irish are helping mould post-Gadafy Libya.

      Some work as ministers or interim government officials; others are setting up political parties as Libya’s nascent democracy takes shape; still more are trying to demobilise the militias that emerged during last year’s conflict. Many others are helping with reconstruction work and helping the revival of the country’s economy.

    4. Some work as ministers or interim government officials; others are setting up political parties as Libya’s nascent democracy takes shape:

      Coordinated by al-Harati and his Irish-born brother-in-law, Husan al-Najar, a building contractor from Dublin,
      the Tripoli brigade rapidly recruited a core of English-speaking Libyan exiles from Ireland, Canada, the UK and the US.

      Libyan-Irish Mehdi al-Harati, ex-cmdr of Tripoli Brigade, is leading 6,000-strong Liwa al-Umma brigade in #Syria. More in tmrw's @IrishTimes

      Mustafa Abdel Jalil:
      ''The Libyans are being cleansed by Gaddafi's air force,''
      said Mustafa Abdel Jalil, head of the rebel national council.

      ''We asked for a no-fly zone to be imposed from day one.


    2. ought to raise more questions, for anyone who is a free thinker and values the importance of skepticism.

      Organ trafficking in Misratah is standard practice, as this man who has been interviewed and filmed explaining that he was locked in jail Misuratah, then went to the hospital, then released him. I felt so much pain and did not know what was wrong so I went to the doctor and saw that he was missing a kidney. Misuratah
      He asked what had happened in the hospital, but was told that they had not touched his kidneys until he managed to tell someone the truth. There is a line direct air traffic between Misurata and Malta.

  33. What is happening in Libya is not a revolution but a bloodshed. Innocent people are taken during the day and at night and thrown into jail for no reason. This is not a revolution but is a crime against humanity to destroy our country, there is no such thing called the 17 of February revolution in Libya, it is only killing people according to Al-Qaida methods.

    We have direct eyewitnesses to prove to anyone that one person was cooked in a pan until he passed out in hot water but this is just a tiny fraction of the daily torture and the killing and the kidnapping of people for no reason.

    American soldiers are still in Libya today training the thugs on how to torture and kill people in jails, and under direct orders from cretin countries such as the state of Qatar and the NATO states.

    We urge and demand from all international groups and organizations of the human rights to interfere in time to save our people and to stop the killing by the thousands for no reason and to put themselves in our shoes and see how does it feel when your son or father is dead and we demand an immediate intervention.

    We invite all of you out there to join us on September 1st of 2012 to aid us in stopping the killing machines in Libya and to stop bloodshed. Enough is enough.

      Libyan official: U.S. drones seeking jihadists in Libya

      A senior Libyan official told CNN that the U.S. is flying surveillance missions with drones over suspected jihadist training camps in eastern Libya because of concerns over rising activity by al Qaeda and like-minded groups in the region but said that to the best of his knowledge, they had not been used to fire missiles at militant training camps in the area.

      The official said that one militant commander operating in Derna, Abdulbasit Azuz, had complained that a drone strike had targeted his training camp in the east of Libya. Last month, there were reports of explosions outside the Derna area in the vicinity of the camps, according to a different source.

      The CIA's covert drone strike program is rarely publicly acknowledged. It has been widely reported that drones have been deployed to target militants in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.

      The U.S. flew drones for a while after the NATO intervention in Libya to monitor chemical and biological sites, US military officials tell CNN. But the officials would not comment on whether drone flights were ongoing.

      Such are the conditions of Libya’s approximately 80,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) post the revolution.

      The refugees comprise Libyans ethnically cleansed from towns and cities due to their perceived support for former dictator Muammar Gaddafi, and those who have fled the continued fighting between rival militias across the country.

      Economic and transitional migrants, and those seeking political asylum from neighbouring countries are amongst the 80,000 being held in 25-30 detention centres and refugee camps run by the government, militias, the army and the police.

  39. No democracy can function without an open media.

    Yet the National Transitional Council has passed laws prohibiting free speech, article 37 says that Libyans can be jailed for “Speech that glorifies Kaddafi, insults Islam, insults the revolution, and lowers the moral of Libyan citizens”.1

    News Anchors who stopped going to work in protest have been forced to return to work at gunpoint and report news that they don’t agree with.

    The Libyan television stations broadcast through NileStat have been taken over by the NTC, Qatar, and western media outlets.2 A fair election with 3,000 candidates is impossible without free media and an open public discourse.


    Aside from the restrictions on media there have also been severe restrictions placed on who can qualify for office.
    The NTC reserves the right to arbitrarily deny any candidate.3

    Additional requirements include: members of local councils, leaders of the people’s congresses, people’s committees and related groups.

    The people’s congress was open to all Libyans as the foundation of their system of direct democracy, 4 so denying participation to members of the people’s congress basically denies all politically active people in Libya.

    Anyone who had taken part in protest against the revolution is also restricted.
    Considering the massive pro-Gaddafi demonstrations in Tripoli, Sabah, Al Ajaylat, Ziltan, Zawiya, Azizia, Sirte, and elsewhere 5 this eliminates millions of Libyans from eligibility.

    Libyan journalists in exile have also been targeted and even killed, says ANHRI.

    "It seems that President Qaddafi, after he overthrew press freedom in Libya, has started to focus his attention and experience toward prosecuting Arab journalists outside his country.

    Thus, we all have to stand by these journalists, in order to preserve what is left of press freedom in the Arab world," ANHRI says.

  41. On August 8 a so-called transformation of power took place in Libya where the NATO-installed National Transitional Council (NTC) "handed over power" to a body named the General National Congress (GNC).

    However, with the country still being ruled by numerous rival armed gangs it isn't clear at all who is going to transfer which power and to whom they are going to transfer it.

    The NATO-backed GNC has a mandate that will expire in June 2013 and during this time it has to appoint(!) a new government and to draft, ratify and adopt a new constitution which should pave the way for the next Western-style elections.


    The people who elected this puppet GNC are the same criminals, terrorists, extremists and other filth that sought to overthrow the free democratic Jamahiriya government since its establishment.....

  53. Political parties were allowed to contest just 80 of the seats.

    Libya is no longer admired for its high standard of living in Africa, but rather feared for its Jihadis, torturers and sham politics.

  54. Also contentious are the roles longstanding exiles and former regime officials should be allowed to play in the transition and in the future;

    These include the choice between various strands of conservative and Islamist political thought on the role of Islam .secularism enjoys little support outside an elite group of former exiles.

    as well as whether there should be a centralized, decentralized or federal system.


  55. With British backing, Idris as-Senussi proclaimed an independent Emirate of Cyrenaica in 1949.



    Idras did nothing to stop NWO pedophiles from raiding Libya for sex slaves.
    A threat to his kingdom was his failure to produce a surviving male heir to succeed to the throne.

    In 1956, Idris designated his brother's son, Hasan as-Senussi, as crown prince.


  56. 2011 / 2012
    A conference of about 3,000 delegates in Benghazi installed Ahmed al-Senussi, a great nephew of Libya's former king, as head of the new Cyrenaica Provincial Council. [3] 




    Sheikh Ahmed Zubair al-Senussi is a relative of the late king and was the longest-serving political prisoner during the Qaddafi regime.

    towards greater autonomy for Cyrenaica



  57. Since the NTC was a self-appointed body,
    it was not surprising that members of the old elites would select one another to lead it, given the close links the former elites had maintained while in exile.

    The family of Mohamed Montasir (NTC member for Misrata) played a similar role in Misrata. 

    Abderrahmane Suweihli, from a family that historically rivaled the Montasirs in Misrata, has contested Jibril’s leadership and established himself as an alternative candidate for prime minister.2

     Jalal and Salwa al-Dagheili (defense minister in the NTC’s ‘executive bureau’ until the formation of a transitional government in November and NTC member for legal and women’s issues, respectively) come from a family that was closely associated with the Sanusi

    so was the family of NTC member Ahmed al-Abbar.

    The list goes on.3


  58. Members of the non-aristocratic Libyan intelligentsia and business community, long exiled in the West,
    also featured prominently, such as the executive bureau’s Information Minister Mahmoud Shammam or Oil and Finance Minister Ali Tarhouni.

    “Mahmud Shammam, a well-known Libyan expatriate journalist who edits Foreign Policy’s Arabic edition.” Foreign policy is a division of the Washington Post http://www.foreignpolicy.com/about_us

    Libya TV started broadcasting from Doha on 30 March. Its founder, seasoned media man Mahmud Shammam, calls it "a voice for free Libya."


  59. Several major developments shed light on the continued absence of centralized control.

    The first was the assassination of Abdelfattah Younes on July 28. :

    Even at the seat of the NTC in Benghazi,
    the command structures remained split between the defecting units of the former army, headed by Maj. Gen. Abdelfattah Younes and later Suleiman Mahmoud;
    a coalition of revolutionary brigades (Tajammu Saraya al-Thuwwar) loosely linked with the NTC,
    and controlled by a diverse group of former officers in the monarchy’s army,
    businessmen and Islamists;

    as well as brigades that acted outside both frameworks.29


  60. The general's friendship with Gaddafi dated from 1969 when he joined a group of fresh-faced army officers in deposing Libya's king.


    Soldiers loyal to Jalil from the 17 Brigade, Benghazi's elite unit, had surrounded Younis's house in the late afternoon.

    Then in the evening, Jalil said at the press conference that "with regret" he had to announce the death of general Younis.

    Jalil had initially said the body of Younis had vanished, but it was paraded, together with those of a colonel and major killed with him, before mourners in Benghazi's Tahrir Square.

    Hours before his death was made public, Younis was rumoured to have been arrested and detained in Benghazi by members of the NTC over links he had supposedly kept with the regime.

  61. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jul/29/abdel-fatah-younis-death-libya

    Mohammed Agoury told the Associated Press that he had been present when rebels from the February 17 Martyrs' Brigade came to Younis's operations room and took him away for questioning.

    In an accusation that reflected growing rifts in the rebel movement, Agoury said the group had killed Younis and dumped his body outside Benghazi.

    Another account, reported by the rebels' Radio Misrata, said Younis had been killed after being attacked in a Benghazi hotel room, where he had been installed by the authorities after being summoned back to the rebel capital on Thursday for questioning.

    The report said Younis and two aides were dragged from the room by gunmen and later found burned and riddled with bullets on a city street.
    It said the identities of the gunmen were unknown. Neither Agoury's nor the radio station's report could be confirmed.

  63. Mohamed Eljarh : the Supreme Security Committee that is viewed by many to be the armed wing of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya

    Ali al-Sallabi, an influential Islamist scholar closely affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, has repeatedly directed fierce attacks in the media against leading NTC representatives, including Mahmoud Jibril.

    His brother Ismail is one among several key leaders of revolutionary brigades in Benghazi and has also called for the NTC’s cabinet to step down.

    Another brother, Usama, has attacked former members of the regime on the NTC during sermons attended by thousands in Benghazi.5

    (Reuters) - A car belonging to an Egyptian diplomat was blown up near his home in the eastern Libyan city Benghazi on Monday, a day after deadly bomb attacks in the capital Tripoli blamed on supporters of deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    A homemade device exploded under the vehicle of the Egyptian consulate's first secretary Abdelhamid Rifai in one of the city's most affluent neighborhoods but no one was hurt, security sources told Reuters.



    There have been 14 successful assassinations of former regime officers in Benghazi so far this year, as well as a significant number of failed attempts.

  68. The following report describes how 32 people were arrested after government spooks monitoring a conversation between “Gaddafi loyalists” in a chat room identified them.

    They were allegedly discussing the recent twin blasts in Tripoli.

    This conversation purportedly occurred on Paltalk.

    Many similar discussions have taken place on this service over the past few months.
    Not one was ever genuine.

    Paltalk is an American owned and operated social chat room. It earned notoriety in April of 2011 when a SANA report divulged that the US based chat room was responsible for the dissemination of propaganda against Syria.

    It stretches all credibility that the Libyan Resistance would use an enemy operated chat room to share their stories with a global audience knowing that they are being tracked and traced.

    The Libyan Resistance do not use chat rooms or other unsecured channels of communication. Neither do they broadcast their activity.

    Libya’s newly imposed so-called General National Congress (GNC) met yesterday after taking a break for the end of the fasting month of Ramadan and the Eid holidays.

    The GNC members were quickly brought down to earth with a bang as they were met at the GNC entrance by demonstrations, including by the families of those that were killed by the Eid car bomb on Sunday which targeted the occupation regime forces. Some demonstrators had attempted to forcibly enter the GNC building.

    Not only that, but at least two members of the media were taken away for ‘questioning’ when a scuffle broke out following the unexpected departure of Congress speaker Mohammed Magarief, a long-time terrorist who lived in the USA and received funding for many decades from the CIA in order to fund terrorism in Libya.

    After meeting for a couple of hours, GNC head, the long-term terrorist Mohammed Magarief left in a hurry and the media were informed that he was to attend a meeting of Libya’s National Security Council.

    #Libya: Timing of Senussi handover, considering reported quid pro quo ($200 million) and PM campaigns, worth investigating. No coincidences.

    RT @GihanTadreft #ICC ordered #Libya to handover #Senussi to the international court #news
    The regime has said it wants to convict Senoussi for Abu Salim prison alleged massacre in spite of the fact that no massacre has ever been shown to have taken place at the prison.

  89. On Sunday 11/13/2011, the heads of Misurata Militia Abdullah Naker and Zintan’s militia Abdulrahman Souweli formed an alliance to overturn any new government which does not assign them the positions of defense minister and head of the army
    Indeed, when the new interim government of Libya, headed by Abdurrahim al-Keib was unveiled, on Tuesday 11/22/2011, Mr Keib gave the post of defence minister to Osama al-Juwali, the local military commander of the western town of Zintan
    and The interior ministry went to Fawzi Abdelal, one of the Misrata rebel leaders, whose fighters captured Muammar Gaddafi in October, exactly as they demanded.

  90. On 4 octobre 2012 :

    Abushagur nominated Omar al-Aswad as interior minister
    while Abdelsalam Jadallah al-Obeidi was named as defence minister.
    From Benghazi, a former military officer, Obeidi defected early in last year's uprising against Muammar Gaddafi.


  91. Obeida Ibn al-Jarah brigade

    One of those accused of involvement in Yunis’ slaying, Salem Obeidi,

    is being held at the prison. He is said to come from Derna.

    Bukatif said that the Obeida Ibn al-Jarah brigade, which an NTC member mentioned earlier as a potential culprit, was not part of the rebel body

    Abu Obeida al-Jarrah Brigade was in charge of internal security in Benghazi, essentially operating as a secret police force.

    It was also reported last night that two other men connected to the killing were also being held at the prison. On Wednesday, however, only Obeidi appeared at a military court in Benghazi at the start of his trial on murder charges. 
    According to military prosecution spokesman Sulaiman Al-Ramali, sixteen others, mostly soldiers, are also accused but have not yet been caught.

    The tribal elders and leaders of the Werfella people of the deceased Younis insist on a fellow Werfella tribesman taking up his position, succeeding their fallen hero as commander-in-chief of the NTC's nascent army.

  92. And when instead they turned their guns on the United States mission, American security officers and the Libyan authorities did not call for help from any formal military or police force — there is none to speak of — but turned to the leader of another autonomous militia with its own Islamist ties.


    “We had to coordinate everything,” said that militia leader, Fawzi Bukatef, recalling the first phone call about the attack that he received from the mission’s security team.

    The Libyan government, he said, “was absent.”

    Fawzi Bukatef ,leader of “the Martyrs of the Feb. 17 Revolution Brigade.” This is a local Libyan militia led by Fawzi Abu Kataf, who has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    -Wissam Buhmeid, the commander of the Tripoli government-sanctioned Libya's Shield Brigade, effectively a police force for Benghazi, maintained that it was anger over the Mohamed video which made the guards abandon their post.

    -“Now, the big question is: What is the next step? And it’s not clear,” said Fawzi Wanis al-Gaddafi, the head of Benghazi’s Supreme Security Committee, a loose coalition of militias under ostensible Interior Ministry control, who, according to Gaddafi, number more than 16,000 fighters.
    -On paper, the various militias fell under the umbrella of the Union of Revolutionary Forces, which answered to the rebels’ minister for defence

  93. Libyan "new" proposed govt: 13 of 23 ministers incl PM AbuShaqur, ministers/deputies from fmr govt / exec office

    The government said on Monday it was replacing the civilian leaders of February 17 and another powerful Benghazi militia that operates its own jail, Rafallah al-Sahati.

    The leaders of the two militias, among the most powerful men in the country, are to be replaced with uniformed army colonels, putting their forces fully under the army chain of command.


    Members of the new national congress, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the continuing investigation, acknowledged with frustration on Tuesday that Ansar al-Shariah members had not been questioned and remain at large.

    Privately, militia leaders complain that detaining Ansar al-Shariah’s leaders and fighters could mean a bloody clash within their own close-knit community.

    Ansar al-Shariah
    Abushagur said on Sept. 20 that eight Libyan nationals had been arrested in connection with the killing of the four Americans and that Ansar al-Shariah, an Islamist militia, was one of the groups thought to be involved.

    Following the protests, the group and another militia, the Abu Selim brigade, said they had disbanded and vacated their bases in Derna, east of Benghazi.

    Nevertheless, Ansar al-Sharia and other Islamist militias have bases elsewhere in eastern Libya, notably around the coastal city of Derna, known across the region as a major recruitment centre for fighters who joined the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.

    Many of the groups, most of which either have Islamist links or tribal or regional ties, played a key role in last year’s uprising against Muammar Qaddafi.

  94. The NFA, led by wartime rebel prime minister Mahmoud Jibril, has 39 out of the 80 party seats in the 200-member assembly.
    The remaining 120 seats are in the hands of independents.


    Mahmoud Jibril has claimed that an international intelligence agency orchestrated the killing of Muammar Qaddafi and not Libyan revolutionaries as previously thought.

    Jibril’s comments are likely to generate controversy amongst Misratans already suspicious of the NFA leader, whom they accuse of being too close to Bani Walid.

    Jibril hails from the Warfallah tribe, whose seat is Bani Walid, where Shaban was captured in July.


    He/Shaban had been dispatched to the western town after two prominent journalists were taken hostage there. He was shot and allegedly suffered severe torture whilst in custody, and died from his wounds on Tuesday in a hospital in Paris.

  99. 'Gaddafi’s regime looks like a beacon of light compared to the current govt'

    RT: The siege of Bani Walid started because the government wants to arrest the suspected murderers of the man who's thought to have captured Colonel Gaddafi. The town failed to hand them over – but is the siege an appropriate response?

    Patrick Henningsen: Not in a civilized, normally formed country.

    But as we know, Libya is anything but civilized and formed in a normal, organic fashion.

    The ruling party in Libya right now is an amateur government.

    It’s an artificial creation of the west in the post-Gaddafi regime change plan.

    So this gives you an indication of how they’re governing in this country and certainly there is no stability in Libya compared to before the NATO bombing and destruction of their country.  

    RT: The residents of Bani Walid are appealing to the UN for help.

    Is that a good move?

    PH: I don’t think they’re going to get much help from the UN, seeing as how the Untied Nations is the co-architect of this post-Gaddafi Libya.

    They’re half responsible for this sort of fraud that was imposed by the UN resolution in 1973, which was starting with the no-fly zone which turned into a bombing zone and a free-for-all for NATO countries.

    It doesn’t surprise me that the UN will be ineffectual because I can’t see one instance over the whole globe – over the whole geopolitical spectrum worldwide – where the UN has done anything of any value in the last decade or two.

    They’re a complete failure and they’re controlled by their number one funder, which is the United States, and its ‘Mini me’ – Britain.

    The Libyan government remains weak and riven by factions that led to the dismissal Sunday of the prime minister by the General National Congress.
    Mustafa Abushagur was fired on a 125-44 vote after he submitted 10 names for top government posts.

    Most of those names belonged to members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Abushagur’s own party, the National Front of Salvation of Libya, while there were no nominations from the National Forces Alliance, the secular group that won most of the votes in July’s parliamentary elections.


    Islamic groups, namely the Muslim Brothers Ihkwan Al-Muslimin and Salafiya formations like the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG),
    have become increasingly important for the political processes in Cyrenaica and Libya

    Mustafa A.G. Abushagur (born 1951), an anti-Qaddafi academic has lived in the United States since 1975. He is a professor of electrical engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and founding president of RIT in Dubai. After the murder of Qaddafi, Abushagur was made deputy prime minister in the US-created transitional government. He became the so-called “first elected prime minister of Libya” on September 12, 2012.


    The Muslim Brothers rely on a high degree of organisation and on foreign support from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Turkey and exile communities in the United Kingdom.

    They can also adapt to the conservative understanding of Islam in the Libyan society.
    Thus they have gained significant influence in the NTC and they are already dominating several political fields such as defence and law

  102. 10 oct 2012 “I said to him,‘Don’t run because if you win bad things will happen’” such Bosidra, Islamist scholar, warned Jibril against running for PM..




    @KatalystProds @HodaAH Mohamed Bo Sidra one of the longest held prisoners in #Libya he is an Islamist, was adviser to #MAJ during ##TNC era.


    2. Egypt’s Muslim Brothers: Egypt has always been sensitive to what happens in Libya, with which it shares a long land border, and contiguous seas. Now, however, with the Muslim Brothers taking electoral power in Egypt, the momentum which began in early 2011 from Cairo by the Brothers to support their colleagues in Libya

    (and particularly NTC Chairman Jalil) has been compounded.

    There is reason to believe that the Egyptian Armed Forces may oppose this extension of the Muslim Brothers network into Libya, but at present the military itself in Egypt is under siege and has more important pressures with which to contend.

    In the meantime, the porous Egypt-Libya border means that a free flow of weapons and cadres can occur (including a flow of weapons from Libyan stockpiles to Egyptian supporters of the Brothers).

    Most of those names belonged to members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Abushagur’s own party, the National Front of Salvation of Libya,

    March 17, 2011 “It’s just a matter of time,” Mohammed Bosidra says, “It’s not a problem, and this government will be recognized by all countries, even in the West.”
    For Bosidra, a lawyer who is close to the Islamists and who was imprisoned for twenty years, radical Muslims are the only force capable of preventing the formation of a cabinet.

    But Abdul Hakim al-Hisasady, the voice of Libya’s Islamists, has given his go-ahead.


    Suleiman Abdul-Qadair, the general guide of the Muslim Brotherhood [MB] in Libya
    Abdul-Qadir added: “As for us, we are part of the heroic Libyan people who continue to write heroic epics for freedom and dignity, after so many people have been killed and honors violated, let alone all this destruction and devastation caused by this regime, led by Gaddafi, against the helpless Libyan people

    New Libyan PM has strong India links Released: 17/10/2012 Libya's new Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, a career diplomat has strong India connections.

    62-year old Zeidan shot into prominence when he was sent to work in Libyan embassy in India in the late 1970s alongside the Ambassador Mohamed Yousef el-Magariaf, Al Jazeera reported.

    For more news and information visit: http://libyabusiness.tv/news/video/libyan-oil-corp-denies-its-agoco-unit-cut-output Copyright © Libya Business TV Limited

    Both Zeidan and el-Magariaf hit the headlines when they defected in 1980 to form the National Front for the Salvation of Libya.

    Zeidan a local council member of the city of Tripoli and a member of Libya's National Assembly was elected the new Prime Minister in a televised count, just a week after the last PM was dismissed in a vote of no-confidence.

    The career diplomat shot into prominence as the revolt against late former dictator Muammar Gaddafi gained ground.

    Then based in exile in Geneva, Zeidan played a prominent role in seeking support for the rebels from the west.

  107. Ali Zeidan, a representative of the council who is based in Europe

    Ali Zeidan doesn't live in Libya he is based in Munich and he worked for oil company having business in Iraq.

    Ali Zeidan, a Europe-based envoy (appointed by who ?) for the Libyan National Transitional Council, and Mansour Sayfal-Naser, a member of the Libyan Human Rights League !!, speak to the Associated Press in Paris, Monday March, 21, 2011.



    Hanan Ghosheh ,May 8, 2011 
    The interim government continues to face hurdles in securing international recognition.

    It has established diplomatic ties with a number of countries, but has been officially acknowledged by only France, Italy, Qatar and Kuwait.

    The United States and Britain have been more cautious in their approach. While both nations are participating in the UN-sanctioned military strikes and have increased their engagement with the council by sending diplomatic emissaries to Benghazi and pledging "non-lethal assistance", they have stopped short of formal recognition.

    So what are they waiting for?

    According to Mr Zeidan, the hesitation stems from domestic political constraints.

    The US president, Barack Obama, has begun his re-election campaign, while Prime Minister David Cameron presides over a delicate coalition.

    They are already smarting from experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan, so a misstep in Libya could prove costly to their parties and careers.

    But in the long run, "they have no other choice", Mr Zeidan said. "It is just a matter of time."
    Hanan D Ghosheh is a Libyan American activist who has launched several petitions in favour of US support for the Libyan opposition

    Zeidan is indeed a spokesperson of Benghazi terrorists. And he is the same Zeidan who, on March 23rd, stated: "In future oil agreements, we will remember those who helpd us" (by bombing more!).

    3. Mr. Ali Al Issawi ( Essawi) (center in Foto above)

    A political and education Libyan who was born in the city of Benghazi in 1966.
    Has a PhD in pivatisation obtained from the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest Romania.
    He occupied the position of Minister of Economy, Trade and Investment in Libya, and was the youngest minister to fill such a post.

    Before taking the ministerial position, he founded the Centre for Export Development in 2006 and became the first Director General for it. He also assumed the position of Director General for the Ownership expansion program (privatization fund) in 2005.

     Ali Al Issawi, former ambassador to India and one of the first Libyan diplomats to have raised the banner of revolt against Muammar Gaddafi since 20th of February , is the rebels' choice to reach out to the world. 

  110. The money invested abroad can now, in effect, be stolen and used to pay the Halliburtons of the world for repairing the water treatment plants, building new hospitals in a privatized healthcare system, setting up a fee-based education system, and so forth, privatizing everything in sight as well as giving their own economies a shot in the arm.

    With its austerity program, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) can now move to turn Libya from a creditor nation that once loaned money to other countries into a debtor nation with an impoverished population..

    Control of Libya’s high-quality oil and access to more of it.

    Providing a gateway to all of Africa, Libya is a strategic asset for the Pentagon’s AFRICOM program.

    For a variety of reasons, water is now becoming a precious commodity throughout the world.

    Under a privatization plan, water will now be sold to the people of Libya, and possibly bottled for sale in other parts of the world.


  111. Control of Libya’s high-quality oil and access to more of it.


    2010 The European Union is heavily dependent on Russia to meet its vast and growing demand for oil and gas supplies. Given Russia's massive hydrocarbon resources and geographical proximity, EU-Russia interdependence is likely to endure for many years. However, expanding energy cooperation with North African oil and gas producers – Algeria, Egypt, and Libya is certain to reduce Europe's vulnerability and improve its energy security. This essay examines the emerging energy partnership between the European Union and North African states.
    The geopolitics of energy: Europe and North Africa

  112. Control of Libya’s high-quality oil and access to more of it.

    Abdeljalil Mohamed Mayuf, spokesman of Arabian Gulf Oil Company,said:

    Dr Mayuf, you have spent more than two decades working in the Libyan oil industry.


    Abdeljalil Mohamed Mayuf: I started working for AGOCO in the early nineties.
    In Qaddafi’s Libya the oil sector was under very strict control of the state.

    But AGOCO supported the revolution from the start by providing moral and financial help to the rebels.

    We gave them food, transportation, shelter. From the start we were the revolution’s driving force.

    The »AGOCO revolution«?
    You may say that. We have made everything possible for the revolution to succeed, including most of the financial assistance needed.

    We were selling oil already in March, even earlier, from February 21, from the very beginning.

    Did it take long to find buyers?

    Not really. People were willing to help us.
    From all over the world – traders from America, Switzerland, other countries.
    We still work with them today because now we are importing oil products to the country, not only selling oil

    An »oil trader from Switzerland« – do you mean Glencore? Yes, Glencore, and Dutch company Vitol.


    The first Vitol shipment of diesel, benzine and gas was delivered to Benghazi on credit.

    But Libyan oil officials say that they could not afford to pay off the bill before the second shipment was delivered.
    So Qatar stepped in with another loan in May.


  113. Control of Libya’s high-quality oil and access to more of it.

    11/10/2012 Plans to radically enhance the size and power the National Oil Company in Benghazi have been put on hold following protests from employees based in Tripoli.

    The move would have effectively given the Benghazi branch full powers to run the oil sector in eastern Libya, where some 80 per cent of the country’s oil production is located

    NOC Workers Union in Tripoli complained that the move represented an unacceptable shift towards federalism in Libya by creating separate NOCs in the east and west.


    Moving on to the future Libya: what role, do you think, will the NOC play in the national oil sector?

    Abdeljalil Mohamed Mayuf : Actually, I don’t see the NOC playing any role at all.

    In fact just two months ago we’ve petitioned the Transitional Council to abolish the NOC and, instead, create a Ministry of Oil and Gas.

    The Most Powerful Person In Libya

  120. The GNC regime said the existence of resistance forces in Bani Walid is a threat to the pro-U.S. government in Tripoli. Interim GNC President Mohammed Magarief claims that forces loyal to the former government have “infiltrated the organs of the state, maybe even its leadership, and are plotting” against the NATO-backed counterrevolution “with the help of others who are abroad.”

    Magarief denied allegations that the attacks against Bani Walid were based on tribal conflicts.

    That an area perceived as a stronghold of Gadhafi supporters has been placed under siege clearly illustrates the major fear of the U.S. and its surrogates — that the resistance to the GNC regime will escalate and take on an anti-imperialist character.

    The GNC regime has failed to rein in the militias, which terrorize the population and engage in all types of corruption. Unemployment and poverty are escalating, and the imperialist states that instigated and financed the overthrow of Gadhafi and the destruction of the state are primarily concerned with the theft of oil from Libya, which has the largest known reserves on the continent.
