This news video was posted to Youtube on March 3rd. According to the video, Israel recruited 50,000 African mercenaries and charged $200 dollars a day for each.

Quotes from the video:
"Israel authorized a security firm to send mercenaries to Libya to crush anti-government protesters there.
Israel decided to recruit African mercenaries to fight against anti-government protesters in Libya.
The revelation comes a few days after the United States demanded immunity for the foreign mercenaries in the international criminal court."

If this is true, which I have no indication that it is not. Then, doesn't it mean that Israel and the U.S. are complicit? WTH is going on???

Interesting, but some other sources would be useful, Press TV is an Iranian station and whatever it says about Israel should be taken with a pinch of salt. Still, if its true then it sheds a whole new light as to what is going on in Libya.

That doesn't sound good. Not at all! One can only think, why, Israël, why? Looks like the friendship with the U.S. is over.

I agree and am looking for other sources. Understand I'm not advocating the source at all... just wanted to get ATS help to determine it's legitimacy.

Did you miss the quote: "The revelation comes a few days after the United States demanded immunity for the foreign mercenaries in the international criminal court."? Seems the U.S. has a part in this as well.

Or this was all staged so we could invade Libya for a needed resource?

As I sit back and look at the situation I can't help but to think that the US gambled on the anti-government protesters winning and decided not to back Gadafi but, now he is showing strong signs of holding power so they had to act fast to support him in the only way they could come up with they're partners. Since they went on record supporting the protesters and now the UN is on they're side they had to find someone to go do they're dirty work. If they wanted to crush the opposition it would be done and over...look how quick Saddam went down.

ETA if we really cared about unarmed protesters being killed why is there no mention of Bahrain and what's going on there...those are truly unarmed protesters being slaughtered...

Veterans Today Story on this published 3/3/2011: GORDON DUFF: ISRAEL INTERVENES IN LIBYA…FOR GADDAFI! 50,000 MERCENARIES TO BE DEPLOYED AGAINST REBELS Al Qaeda Fighters Included in Israeli Force


In a move that surprises all but Middle East experts, Israel has promised Libya’s dictator of over 40 years, Colonel Gaddafi, 50,000 troops to aid in crushing rebels set on overthrowing his his murderous rule. According to news sources inside Israel, “troops” are being hired across Africa, Uganda, Sudan, Chad and the Central Africa Republic, including Al Qaeda fighters, to be deployed against demonstrators and rebel forces currently involved in heavy fighting in a two week old attempt to overthrow the Libyan ruler that has left thousands dead.

In the last 72 hours, rebel leaders have been in contact with Britain and the United States, nations that have promised aid and have positioned forces in the Mediterranean for a decisive strike against Gaddafi. Additional US Marines have been sent to reinforce assault teams on the USS Kearsarge, a helicopter assault ship now stationed off Tripoli awaiting orders to begin operations.

Watch the video! The english language bar at the bottom shows the footage is about Israeli settlements, not this silly ass story about Israel support Gaddafy.

I found a legitimate source, thought it only states what happened in court.


African mercenaries hired by the Gaddafi regime to kill Libyan protesters would be immune from prosecution for war crimes due to a clause in this weekend's UN resolution that was demanded by the United States.


This means that mercenaries from countries such as Algeria, Ethiopia and Tunisia – which have all been named by rebel Libyan diplomats to the UN as being among the countries involved – would escape prosecution even if they were captured, because their nations are not members of the court.


many of the attacks were in fact carried out by foreign mercenaries hired by Colonel Gaddafi. And the US insisted that the UN resolution was worded so that no one from an outside country that is not a member of the ICC could be prosecuted for their actions in Libya.
