Ex-Leader of Islamic Fundamentalist Group is New Military Commander of Tripoli
The former chief of the terrorist Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), Abdelhakim Belhadj, who led the "rebel" onslaught on Tripoli and on Muammar Gaddafi’s Bab al-Aziziyah compound, is now leader of the newly established Tripoli Military Council.
As reported last Thursday by the Algerian daily El Khabar, Belhadj had been arrested, in 2004, by the CIA in Malaysia for terrorist activities and later handed over to Libya. In March 2010, Belhadj was released by Saif al Islam Gaddafi, son of the Libyan leader, following a national amnesty which benefited hundreds of Libyan Islamists. Belhadj’s group who, according to the Libyan authorities, was linked to the Al Qaeda terrorist network, was granted amnesty on the promise that it had renounced violence.
NATO are bringing death and destruction to a prosperous and peacefull country, they are actively participing in the destruction of an established Government and the reasons for doing so are clearly sinister. Why should NATO get to decide such things? Is it not up to the people of Libya to oppose the regime if they believe it is out of control?
///////////// I can not found the words and i do not be able to explain what going on in Libya. ,, It's War ,, the dictator is killing his people !!?? he sent the tanks and all kind of military heave upon to the streets thousand and thousand of people have been killed .
but in the end of the day there's No more Gaddafi in Libya No more dictator in Libya and libya will be free and democracy country and we will build our country again .

Why do Libyans have better education than we do , because Ghaddfi made it free for his people , unlike our goverments who charge extortion on education !
ghaddafi isnt killiing his supporters , he needs them , why would he murder them!
Precisely. After everything Gaddafi has done for Libya I find it extremely hard to believe a substantial number of people would turn again him. It also doesn't make sense that he would just open fire on protesting civilians knowing that it would spark mass outrage. We have terrorists leading the rebels who are being backed by western influences. NATO bombings have killed thousands of people and destroyed critical infrastructure, they have a lot of blood on their hands too. There are clearly a huge number of people that support Gaddafi, yet with a few sketchy excuses, NATO decides to take direct action by aiding and abetting the deconstruction of a productive and efficient Government followed by the rebuilding of a government and banking system under elite influence.
I read in your post from your friend from libya who said he was killing the civilians , which they have not proved in any case yet, it;s all just hearsay.
Wenzel also noted that the uprising looked like a “major oil and money play, with the true disaffected rebels being used as puppets and cover” while the transfer of control over money and oil supplies takes place. And other analysts agreed.
A popular blog called The Economic Collapse used sarcasm to express suspicions about the strange rebel announcement. “Perhaps when this conflict is over those rebels can become time management consultants. They sure do get a lot done,” joked the piece, entitled “Wow That Was Fast! Libyan Rebels Have Already Established A New Central Bank Of Libya.”
