Orly Weinerman, Saif Gaddafi's Israeli Lover, Pleads For Help From Tony Blair
The Times of Israel reported that Weinerman late Monday wrote on her Facebook page, that “for a long time I have had trouble falling asleep at night, revealing my anxiety among good friends and between the living room walls. But now, with injustice displayed proudly on the world stage, I challenge you to lend me a hand and save another victim from hatred, prejudice and moral corruption.” 

= Libyan Islamists and the security forces: Iraq 2.0?
IN THIS particular case, analogy with Iraq is helpful, for it is clear that the post-Gaddafi Libyan security forces are being built up in much the same way as the new Iraqi security apparatus was created and developed following the fall of Saddam’s regime.
That is, facing a situation of chaos caused by competing militias, the post-Gaddafi Libyan government has understandably pursued a policy of trying to build up the new security forces as quickly as possible – an approach that was also adopted by the United States in Iraq.
= SIRTE - Flash back Tombs of Muammar Gaddafi's relatives desecrated
Four tombs have been destroyed. According to reports to Ennahar those are the graves of Muammar Gaddafi's mother, his uncle and two other relatives who were buried in the yard of the house. The tomb of Gaddafi's mother has been damaged the most.

Ultraconservative Salafists Destroy Sufi Landmarks in Libya
TRIPOLI—Salafists—ultraconservative Muslims—behind the recent wave of sectarian bombings and the destruction of historic mosques and shrines—say they aim to rid Libya of all Sufi landmarks by the end of the year. Now they are turning their attention to women, posting flyers at universities and private schools, insisting male and female students be segregated. 
The flyers and Salafist websites—some headquartered in Saudi Arabia—chillingly warn female students on Libyan campuses to avoid tight-fitting clothes, insisting that they must cover up and wear the hijab. The surging attacks on Libya’s Sufi mosques and libraries—the most brazen came on Aug. 25 when a well-known Tripoli mosque was bulldozed—have been encouraged by a prominent Saudi imam. 
Sheik Muhammad Al-Madkhalee has issued a fatwa praising the desecration of Sufi graves and urging Libyan Salafists to do more to clear the North African country of any taint of Sufi worship.
Smuggled Tramadol shipment seized at Egyptian border

The Libyan Market caught fire at around 6am last Wednesday having been doused in petrol and other flammable liquids and set alight.
When firefighters arrived to try and extinguish the flames, they were twice fired upon by the arsonists, who fled in a white saloon car with tinted windows.
The market had previously been attacked by an rocket-propelled grenade. [LibyaHerald]
Hurray for robbery: "Libyan economy the fastest growing in the world" 

In a country that is ruled by Western-backed terrorists and armed gangs since the NATO powers overthrew the free Jamahiriya government, in a country where former leaders are imprisoned, tortured and tried in kangaroo courts, the following article is supposed to be "good news".

The greedy bankrupt Western countries now seek to rob the formerly sovereign country as much as possible while making "lucrative" (oil) deals with its puppet government -  however, will there still be a portion of every Libyan oil sale credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens? 
Will electricity, education and medical treatments still be free for everyone? 
Will all newlyweds still receive $60,000 dinar (U.S. $50,000) from the NATO-installed "government" to buy their first apartment in order to start a family? 
Will that government still subsidize 50 percent of the price of a person's new car? 
Will there still be no interests on loans? 
Will the price of petrol still be $0.14 per liter? 
Will Libya still have no external debt?
This all was the case under the revolutionary leadership of Muammar Qaddafi who made Libya the most prosperous country of Africa and more prosperous than Russia, Brazil and Saudi Arabia...  - WM

The story of the revolution Brother leader Muammar Gaddafi in 1969
 “True democracy exists only through the direct participation of the people.” 
Moammar Al-Gaddafi

September 1, 1969
Moammar Al-Gaddafi and a group of army officers overthrew king Idris's government and changed Libya's official name from The Kingdom of Libya to The Libyan Arab Republic which to be governed by The Revolutionary Command Council lead by Moammar Al-Gadhafi. A temporary constitution was declared to replace the Kingdom's constitution which was adopted December 25, 1951 and updated October 7, 1963. The change happened in a peaceful way. The day is celebrated every year as The Revolution Anniversary. The Libyan Revolution was supported by most of the Libyan people and huge demonstrations were held next day and continued for days.
Dorda - Libya's Ex PM update - Ongoing Hell
Universally known as an honourable man, now injured while in custody. And facing numerous appearances in kangaroo like courts.
From Wikipedia: Abuzed Omar Dorda (Arabic: أبو زيد عمر دوردة‎) (born 4 April 1944) was General Secretary of the People's Committee (Prime Minister) of Libya from 7 October 1990 to 29 January 1994, and as Libya's Permanent Representative to the United Nations from 1997 to 2003.

14 current & former military officials have been assassinated in #Benghazi this year #Libya
On Friday, a bomb was found that the Sidi Hussein blood bank centre with the message o “Al-Fatah –a gift from martyr, Issam Fitouri, 30 August 2012”.  The reference to “Al Fatah” (the Opening) which was Qaddafi’s description for his 1969 “revolution”  was seen as confirmation of pro-[ Libya] Qaddafi activity.

On Wednesday, security forces in the city reportedly uncovered large quantities of weapons and ammunition in one of the city’s public markets
On Monday, an armed group attacked the Criminal Investigation Department’s premises in the city. There were no casualties and two of the attackers were detained.
As a result a state of high alert was declared in the city by the deputy interior minister responsible for eastern Libya, Wanis Al-Sharif.

The attack on Wednesday in which an air force colonel, Mahmud Berrhouma, was shot in the legs is, however, seen to have been an attempt at common theft.  The assailant was apparently after his car.

What was the purpose of their visit? 
Did they all travel to Thessaloniki for health issues? How many of them were wounded? Why was Qatar paying for the treatment of the Libyan "rebels" untill November 2011? Whatever the answers, Greek Hotels and Hospitals can hardly be expected to welcome any Libyans untill at least half of the ammount is paid and one of the immediate consequences is that 14 big Hotels in Thessaloniki have left their employees unpaid for two to five months.

Under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, ratified by Libya, the Libyan authorities must ensure the freedom of everyone either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to practice their religion or belief in worship, observance, practice, and teaching.
They are under a specific duty under this treaty to ensure that members of religious minorities can profess their religion in public in community with others. This means that all places of worship and religious importance should be protected when under threat.

"Libya has concentrated on resumption of production of existing facilities and oil and gas output has reached pre-war levels. However the return of International Oil Companies (IOC) to resume exploration is taking longer then expected, due to the security concerns. IOCs are now returning to Libya but with smaller budgets and fewer staff. It is obvious that they are carrying out preparatory work whilst waiting to see developments."

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi called for the UN security council to be democratised in order to enhance the prospects of world peace and told the summit that he will demand a seat for the African Union.

"The security council is terrorism. It does not represent us and it is monopolised by a few countries, which represents a danger toward international peace," he argued.
The Egyptian Embassy in Tripoli has negotiated the release of 19 Egyptians detained in Libya, diplomatic sources told state run MENA on Thursday.

Fifteen of the detainees have already been released, and only four more remain to be released this evening or tomorrow morning.

Earlier today, dozens from the Salam village in Fayoum protested yesterday in front of the Foreign Ministry, demanding the release and return of their relatives detained in Libya. They have begun a sit-in until their demands are met.

"One of the detainees who was released from Ain Zara Prison visited us two days ago," said Saeed Hassan, a protester. "He told us that Abu Salim police in Tripoli had arrested about 200 Egyptians, including 90 from our village, and asked them to tell the Egyptian government to hand over Ahmed Qadhaf al-Dam, who resides in Egypt, in exchange for their release."
= SHOT IN BENGHAZI  -  Air force commander shot in Benghazi hit-and-run attack
Air force commander Mahmoud Berrhouma has been shot in both legs, in what appears to have been a hit-and-run attack by an armed robber.

The incident happened on Monday afternoon in the Garyounis district of Benghazi.

“The man came up to Mahmoud, told him to hand over his car keys and then shot him in the legs”, Berrhouma’s brother said.

“He stole the car and left my brother in a pool of blood”.

In the past few months Benghazi has witnessed a series of attacks on senior military personnel with links to the previous regime. [LibyaHerald]
MURDER IN BENGHAZI  - Shahjahan Mia was an extremly poor Bangladeshi whose only aim was to find work somewhere — anywhere. That aim brought him from Comilla, a town some 50 kilometres east of the capital, Dhaka where he lived with his parents and his wife, to Libya — illegally as it happened. But not for long. Within a week of arriving earlier this month, he was dead —  stabbed when he and his two friends were attacked.
The circumstances of his death are unknown yet.
According to Saief Ul-Haque, a Bangladeshi agent was paid $1,000 to organise travel to Libya and jobs for the three. They arrived in Libya on August 11 and headed for Benghazi.  It was there, on 18 August, that he was stabbed in the back after returning from work, and died.

MISRATA PRISONS: Mohammed Al-Koor, who runs one Misrata prison containing 700 Libyans "Gaddafi supporters", had to move prisoners from cells visible from high buildings nearby, after Misrata snipers started killing inmates through the bars.
MISRATA GANGS: A group of ‘freedom fighters’ told  how they had ransacked the town, setting fire to buildings and attacking anyone they found. These men told how they repeatedly kicked a heavily-pregnant Tawergan woman in the stomach. One said: ‘The woman was shouting as we kicked her: “I could be your mother.”
‘I told her my mother is not a black b***h,’ he added.

Tawergans  have now been placed in ‘refugee camps’, which are, in effect, little more than prisons.
The people in these camps do not dare leave: Misrata militias scour the country for anyone from Tawerga and regularly kidnap and torture black Libyans suspected of helping Gaddafi.
And even in the camps, fortified with barbed wire and watched by armed guards, the refugees are not safe from the marauding militias.

= ZLITAN, TRIPOLIDestruction of graves :  Lunatic "fighters" screaming "Allah Akbar" #shame

At sunrise on Saturday, suspected Libyan adherents of the rigid Salafi school of Islam brought bulldozers into the center of Tripoli and flattened the expansive, centuries-old Sidi Al-Sha'ab shrine. Uniformed members of at least two separate government security divisions that answer to the Interior Ministry barricaded the busy seafront road where the religious complex was located and allowed the daylong demolition to continue, according to witnesses.

That destruction followed vandalism Friday night at Libya's most revered Sufi mosque in Zlitan, west of the capital, and the burning of an adjoining library that housed hundreds of theological treatises dedicated to the mystical branch of Islam that historically has been practiced across much of North Afric
New Libya :   burning of books and the destruction of graves #NoFuture

.Salafists have destroyed almost 30 graves at an historic madrassa in central Tripoli, in the latest spate of religiously-motivated violence to hit Libya.
The Othman Pasha madrassa, named after its Turkish founder, was attacked by scores of armed men in the early hours of this morning, who used automatic drills to dig up the graves and looted several historic texts from the school’s library.
The madrassa also serves as a boarding school.
They came around 2am. There were about 200 of them and they were heavily armed”, one of the madrassa’s staff told .
They destroyed all the graves except two, and we think they will come back for those. There are around 30 graves, in which Othman Pasha and his family are buried”.
The man, who asked not to be named, said the Salafists were intending to take all the books from the madrassa’s library, but were persuaded not to by dismayed members of staff.
“They took about half of the books”, he said.
The Salafists also cut down a tree in the middle of the school after accusing people there of worshiping it.

= Libya is awash with "militias" –
The NTC tried to deal with the problem by bringing the militias under its rule. In September 2011, it created the Supreme Security Committee (SSC), a patchwork of various militia groups thought to number around 100,000. It also attempted to establish control over the Libyan National Shield, a group formed by militias from the east, Zintan and Misrata to preserve "the ideals of the revolution".
In return for maintaining order around the country, the members of both groups were paid a salary that surpassed the average Libyan's wage, thus providing an incentive to continue fighting on the side of the state.

Libyans protest Islamists' destruction of shrines [AP]
Libyan activists and civil society groups on Monday urged the newly-elected parliament to intervene to protect the national heritage after Islamist hardliners destroyed shrines across the country.
= Libyan Graves
Last week, millions of Muslims worldwide celebrated one of Islam’s two annual celebrations, Eid al-Fitr, which follows their completion of fasting the month of Ramadan. For Muslims, Eid is a time for visiting family and friends, and a time for feeling joy and solidarity. 
During these celebrations, Muslims often feel a heightened sense of belonging to a historically-rooted community and an increased affinity for their heritage.
These positive feelings were brought to an abrupt end Sunday morning as news spread that a series of coordinated attacks against a number of Libyan sites that are part of its religious heritage.
The reports were consistent: the sites targeted included tombs of Muslim scholars and sages, and the perpetrators were members of radical Salafi groups — with state security forces either complacently standing by or complicit participants in the attacks.
= Libya Officials Seem Helpless as Sufi Shrines Are Vandalized
In addition, there are an unknown number of militant Islamists who took up arms against Colonel Qaddafi, some of whom had fought in Iraq or Afghanistan and may favor vigilante action against Sufi deviations from Muslim orthodoxy. There are also Salafis, who favor a strict and puritanical interpretation of Islam and scoff at Sufi practices. In Libya, the Salafis have generally shunned politics and even the revolt against Colonel Qaddafi — earning them some enmity from the militants as well.

Education had been part of the Libyan Jamahiriya since its beginning. In his famous Five Points speech, in which he outlines his ideology of “Islamic Socialism,” Gadhafi emphasized the importance of education alongside democracy and welfare in the then new Libyan state.
These early reforms included creating a department of education, making primary education free and compulsory for both genders and expanding higher education,including scholarships to study abroad.
The reforms led to the doubling of literacy rates for both men and women, and Libya became the most educated society in Africa by a wide margin.
They backfired for the regime, however, when those students returned from abroad to join in the revolution. Besides providing important manpower to the rebels, engineering students designed makeshift weapons for the protest, using the degrees they received from Gadhafi's programs.
