The Murder of Gadhafi

Western leaders did their best to exercise restraint while reacting to news about the murder of M. Gadhafi. Jubilant, they withheld smiles and promptly switched to comments on the future of Libya, which revolved around the key idea that having the embattled country revert to normalcy would be a major challenge for its now triumphant […]

Mu’ummar Qaddafi: Post-mortem

OR Note: For the first time we’ve published this text in April 2011. No one could imagine at that time that Muammar Gaddafi would survive 6 months of violent man-hunt and furious battles for Tripoli, Sirte, Ben Walid and dozens of other heroic Libyan cities. Today, when a dark page of Libyan history is opening […]

The Apogee of Drama in Libya

The situation in Libya, in whose sands the much-vaunted NATO machine has been stalled for seven months and not only has failed to defeat the Bedouins but has decided to pull out by mid-October, has undermined the faith of the West in its ability to overthrow Muammar Gadhafi jointly with the rebels and bring “others” […]

Libyan ‘Inspiration’

Last week the US Senator John McCain while on visit in Libya astonished us with the following statement: “We believe very strongly that the people of Libya today are inspiring the people in Tehran, in Damascus, and even in Beijing and Moscow…” We can speak neither for Tehran and Damascus nor for Beijing. But in […]

Gadhafi and the “Lion of the Desert”

Libya’s government has been forcibly overthrown. But as in previous years, events are being held there this week to commemorate Libya’s national hero, the man to whom, paradoxically, both the new leaders and their deposed opponent, Muammar Gadhafi, compare themselves. Eighty years ago—on September 16, 1931—in Soluk (a town south of Benghazi in the eastern […]

Revolt In Libya a Message to Chavez

The Libyan rebels’ August 23 attack on the Venezuelan embassy and compound in Tripoli went largely unreported, though fatalities were narrowly averted as Venezuelan ambassador Afif Tajeldine and the embassy staff moved to a safer location at the last moment and left Libya shortly thereafter. It transpired in the wake of the incident that Venezuela’s […]

The Arab Spring Grows Into Muslim Turmoil

Informational warfare launched by the West in the Muslim world could not but result in the Arab youth betraying their traditional values and taking to the streets to express their protest. It is absolutely evident that these protests were orchestrated from overseas. This became particularly clear in the final stage of the armed confrontation in […]

Libya on the Brink

The fall of M. Gadhafi’s regime will come as a huge success of the globalization forces seeking to establish a new world order. The proportions of the campaign the West launched in Libya and the level of sophistication of the technologies employed were impressive regardless of the accompanying political assessments – altogether they combined into […]

What Is Going On in Tripoli?

After 6-months-long failing attempts to overthrow Gaddafi by the hands of ‘Libyan rebels’ and to weaken his regime by permanent bombings, the ‘democratic’ powers have put their last ace on table. On Saturday evening August 20, 2011 they have launched a large-scale special land operation in Tripoli with the support of NATO aviation. British SAS, […]

Libya and the End of Western Illusions

Just under half of Europeans still support the war against Libya. Their position is based on erroneous information. They still believe, in fact, that in February the “Gaddafi regime” crushed the protests in Benghazi with brutal force and bombed civilian districts in Tripoli, while the Colonel himself was warning of “rivers of blood” if his […]
