Libya S.O.S. resistance news 24.  May 2012.
"Nature Strikes back" about Saif al Islam as artist :Saif al Islam Gaddafi as artist. His association with The Desert is Not Silent, a touring exhibition of Libyan antiquities and contemporary art was occasionally mentioned but nobody had picked up on the fact that a substantial number of works in that exhibition wereactually painted by Saif al Islam himself. 
The Desert is Not Silent was most recently shown in Moscow in 2010 but was launched in London in 2002. It was a huge, champagne flowing affair in a specially constructed tent (sound familiar?) in Kensington packed with a bizarre and uneasy mix of politicians,.diplomats, academics, spooks, fixers, journalists and a few tokens from the art world. 
Painted in 2000, part of the catalogue text for this read:
Libya was as strong as a rock against which the arrogance of the neo-crusaders was broken. In this tragedy of the new world order the leader becomes the 'unique eagle'.
16h/ A souvenir photo of NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen in Libya, a visit of contempt towards the victims of this unjust war against the Libyan. Thousands of children, women and men killed by bombs and weapons of NATO.

14h/ Result of U.S.-NATO war on Libya: Corruption, torture, chaos
The regime that NATO and the Pentagon brought to Libya denies human rights, breeds corruption and is leading the country toward increasing chaos day by day.

Others who had never been injured were nevertheless sent abroad “for medical treatment.”

What was with concessions of NATO lands?
What an irony!
Western European countries and USA didn't pay to Libya 200 billion dollars for the Libyan oil they got.
That's why they waged the war on Libyan people - bombed it with mini nukes and aerosol bombs to Stone Age and now like a final touch here comes the stoning as a punishment for those who don't like the newly arrived "democracy"!
The EU and US owe Libya over 200 BILLION$ for Libyan oil.
Also, oil concessions for western oil companies are due to expire in 2012., andGaddafi said that if they don’t pay he would give the new concessions to Russian and Chinese oil companies.

17h/ Tripoli - A number of " Rights movements and NGOs" demonstrated at the National Transitional Council’s HQ in Tripoli yesterday in opposition to Law No. 36 that freezes the assets of certain individuals and companies.

Now the US State Department attorney who drafted UNSCRs 731, 748 and 883 that imposed the Lockerbie sanctions claims the case against the two accused was “so full of holes it was like Swiss cheese” and says the CIA effectively made him lie to the UN Security Council.
14h/ Tunisia sets terms for extradition of ex-Libyan PM
TUNIS, Tunisia –  Libya's former prime minister will only be extradited to his country if his life isn't in danger there and he can be guaranteed a fair trial, Tunisia's presidential spokesman said Wednesday
13h/ Libya’s Invisible Forces
You won't learn much about Janzour from the Libyan media. Although Libyan journalists have filmed interviews at the camp, their reporting has yet to be broadcast, and no one is quite sure why. The journalists speak of different priorities—the country is preparing for elections—but those in the camp blame pressure from the Misrata militia or racism: Most of the refugees are black. Lack of coverage means lack of interest. Nobody in power feels any urgency to help them.
And thus the Tawerghans remain, semi-invisible, in limbo, like so many other things in Libya, where power is still held by a Transitional National Council and a provisional government; where elections are scheduled for June; where decisions are suspended "until we have a government" and would-be investors hang around the lobby of the Radisson, drinking mint tea and waiting to see what will happen next.

00h/ NYT Admits Lockerbie Case Flaws
Exclusive: Even in death, Libyan Ali al-Megrahi is dubbed “the Lockerbie bomber,” a depiction that proved useful last year in rallying public support for “regime change” in Libya.

“It’s our obligation to provide services for them,” he said. “We are one country, one people and we must make sure that we learn how to live together again.”

22h/ Justice in Libya: Investigating NATO?
Accepting that the ICC should investigate NATO crimes, the question becomes can they?
There is no legal barrier to investigating citizens of those NATO states involved in Libya which are also signatories to the Rome Statute. A more controversial question, however, emerges with citizens of NATO members who are not members of the ICC, most obviously the United States.
21h/ Could the #ICC prosecute Americans for civilian deaths in #Libya ?
"With international criminal justice featuring almost daily in the media and in the demands of the oppressed and violated, expectations that justice is evenly and fairly achieved will only increase.
No self-respecting human rights advocate can argue that serious violations of international law by Western powers – whether it be the fire-bombing of Dresden in WWII, NATO’s bombing of Serbia in 1999 or the US and UK’s role in torture and rendition cases – should have escaped investigation or accountability.
Anyone who truly believes in the project of international criminal justice has to readily admit to these serious gaps in the project – not in order to concede that the project is fundamentally flawed but because only by recognizing these shortcomings can the project be furthered, the playing field be made equal, and international justice be impartial and universal."

18h/ #NATO #Chicago today: and Thank you Julia S. for comment:
I have watched in horror the laughing Hollywood approach to the NATO summit in Chicago. Michelle Obama & Hillary Clinton with their usual grotesque open mouths screeching like school girls at their first party.
All of this death and destruction is nothing to them.
They are condemned to hell forever; we all know that.
Rasmussen looks like Frankenstein on speed and they are all evil witches.
We can only hope Allah comes forth soon to pronounce justice on their evil pact of eternal war and destruction for their own profit.
All people of entire world and especially Middle East suffer over them.

17h/ RUMORS ABOUT HUMAN ORGAN TRAFFICKING IN MISURATA PRISON!Prisoners are having their organs illegally removed and sold to physicians from India for sale elsewhere!
There is reportedly a palace where there is a lab and medical equipment brought by said Indian physicians. It is said that this information leaked to human rights organizations and Libyan civil society institutions, but when trying to publish it they were threaten.
Reported by (someone who calls "Gaddafi Son") on the Green Mountain Resistance site.

Could it be that the Jannat Resort is the "palace" implicated in this organ trafficking allegation?
A survivor from Misurata relates the following story:
"And I remember that there is a summer resort called Jannat (means Heaven) because any prisoner who was taken there was considered doomed."
We don't know...As we said, these are rumors, but they are only too easily believed since we've seen the share monstrosity of Misurata thugs and their love for blood and money.
Organ trafficking is a lucrative business and countries where there is an armed conflict and no law or security, are paradise for those vultures.
Libyan Prisoners: Human Organ Trafficking ?

SHOCKING: interview with a man who has been tortured for months in Misurata’s jails
15h/ Libya’s rebels are without a cause
In a country awash with weapons, the lack of momentum has left the center dangerously devoid of tools and authority for establishing itself
In the absence of a state criminal justice system, these groups rounded up 5,000 prisoners, and held them without trial.
Government reluctance has been met with violence. Amid allegations of fraud, the government limited paid medical trips abroad for the war wounded, and canceled one-off payments to rebels after at least 20 times as many would-be recipients registered as the number of fighters.
Gun markets have surfaced in southern Tunisia, and Sinai’s bedouin careen along mountain tracks with formerly Libyan anti-aircraft guns mounted on trucks. Libya’s own turmoil could yet acquire continental proportions.
However, with such riches to distribute among such a small population, the vultures are many.

He was convicted in January 2001 for the murder of the 270 Lockerbie victims, a verdict described by the United Nations trial observer as ‘incomprehensible’.''

15h/ THE HAGUEA lawyer for Moamer Kadhafi's son Seif al-Islam said Friday he doubted Libya was able or willing to try his client, as he asked the International Criminal Court to report the matter to the UN.
Xavier-Jean Keita, the defence lawyer appointed by the ICC, said in papers before the Hague-based court that despite several requests to meet Seif, Libyan authorities so far have not cooperated.

"Either they are stonewalling because they are concerned about what he might say to his council... or, they simply do not have the capacity to implement the visit," Keita said.

"Either conclusion undermines their assertation that they are either willing or able to conduct proceedings against Mr Seif al-Islam."

14h/ Libya: Just another Nato casualty
A year after the Western powers tried to make up for lost ground in the Arab uprisings by tipping the balance of the Benghazi-led revolt, Libya is in the lawless grip of rival warlords and armed conflict between militias as the West-installed National Transitional Council passes laws clamping down on freedom of speech, gives legal immunity to former rebels and disqualifies election candidates critical of the new order.
These are the political forces Nato played a role in bringing to power.
