That's why I was saying that I don't remember these problems under Gaddafi.
Sure .. there were other problems with him ...
But Christians weren't being persecuted at the hands of extremists.
And the local muslim population wasn't afraid of the extremists.
At least, i don't remember any of that happening while he was in charge.
Yes - things were all hunky dory under Gaddafiduck - no problem that the Libyans were oppressed and terrified of him - so long as Christians weren't
The local moderate Muslim population wasn't afraid of the extremists - because sometimes it takes a brutal dictatorship to keep everyone in line
I've been trying to read up on this - seems only conservative news sites are putting out this story - outside of the recent attack on a mosque (which
was carried by mostly everyone) - it comes with a variety of different details - all alleging torture. Alleging...
FrontPage (with it's infamous Jihad Watch) has the story of course, along with a variety of Christian papers, some Jewish papers, a few Egyptian
papers, and of course - Fox News (which is just so very fond of Jihad Spotting it's own self)
Now - I know how this sounds - so just allow me a moment before you leap on the liberal MSM (and me) and cry foul
It just may be that the story is true - but unverifiable. Most good news people wait until they can confirm something before it becomes a real story -
it just might start turning up in a few days everywhere. If it is a real story - and not propaganda - then, good for Fox - what a scoop! :-)
Whether it does make the mainstream news or not - I have to wonder why you are so upset that nobody seems to care as much about this as you think they
should. Why do you assume they don't? It's just barely a story outside of ATS
I would be interested to know what you wanted to hear?
Having said all that Flyers - I personally only have one response to (the things alleged in) this story:
I don't doubt for one moment that it's true. If there's one thing we can expect from religious or ideological extremists - it is exactly this sort of
And so it goes...
