Qatar and Saudi Arabia have ignited a “time bomb” by funding the global spread of radical Islam, according to a former commander of British forces in Iraq.

General Jonathan Shaw, who retired as Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff in 2012, told The Telegraph that Qatar and Saudi Arabia were primarily responsible for the rise of the extremist Islam that inspires Isil terrorists. ****(What he is not telling you is: the isis/isil/daesh was created by the European and American forces as a paramilitary, inside in these groups are all mercenaries well paid by either private army/companies or by the government. Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the front its like laundering money for drugs it just changed the object remember who created Al Qaeda so that they could get rid of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. The General is well aware of this and tries to cover the unrecoverable mistakes of his country and allies that they have done in the middle east and north Africa.)

The two Gulf states have spent billions of dollars on promoting a militant and proselytising interpretation of their faith derived from Abdul Wahhab, an eighteenth century scholar, and based on the Salaf, or the original followers of the Prophet.

But the rulers of both countries are now more threatened by their creation than Britain or America, argued Gen Shaw. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has vowed to topple the Qatari and Saudi regimes, viewing both as corrupt outposts of decadence and sin.

So Qatar and Saudi Arabia have every reason to lead an ideological struggle against Isil, said Gen Shaw. On its own, he added, the West’s military offensive against the terrorist movement was likely to prove “futile”.

“This is a time bomb that, under the guise of education, Wahhabi Salafism is igniting under the world really. And it is funded by Saudi and Qatari money and that must stop,” said Gen Shaw. “And the question then is ‘does bombing people over there really tackle that?’ I don’t think so. I’d far rather see a much stronger handle on the ideological battle rather than the physical battle.”

Gen Shaw, 57, retired from the Army after a 31-year career that saw him lead a platoon of paratroopers in the Battle of Mount Longdon, the bloodiest clash of the Falklands War, and oversee Britain’s withdrawal from Basra in southern Iraq. As Assistant Chief of the Defence Staff, he specialised in counter-terrorism and security policy.

All this has made him acutely aware of the limitations of what force can achieve. He believes that Isil can only be defeated by political and ideological means. Western air strikes in Iraq and Syria will, in his view, achieve nothing except temporary tactical success.

When it comes to waging that ideological struggle, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are pivotal. “The root problem is that those two countries are the only two countries in the world where Wahhabi Salafism is the state religion – and Isil is a violent expression of Wahabist Salafism,” said Gen Shaw.

“The primary threat of Isil is not to us in the West: it’s to Saudi Arabia and also to the other Gulf states.”

Both Qatar and Saudi Arabia are playing small parts in the air campaign against Isil, contributing two and four jet fighters respectively. But Gen Shaw said they “should be in the forefront” and, above all, leading an ideological counter-revolution against Isil.

The British and American air campaign would not “stop the support of people in Qatar and Saudi Arabia for this kind of activity,” added Gen Shaw. “It’s missing the point. It might, if it works, solve the immediate tactical problem. It’s not addressing the fundamental problem of Wahhabi Salafism as a culture and a creed, which has got out of control and is still the ideological basis of Isil – and which will continue to exist even if we stop their advance in Iraq.”

Gen Shaw said the Government’s approach towards Isil was fundamentally mistaken. “People are still treating this as a military problem, which is in my view to misconceive the problem,” he added. “My systemic worry is that we’re repeating the mistakes that we made in Afghanistan and Iraq: putting the military far too up front and centre in our response to the threat without addressing the fundamental political question and the causes. The danger is that yet again we’re taking a symptomatic treatment not a causal one.”

Gen Shaw said that Isil’s main focus was on toppling the established regimes of the Middle East, not striking Western targets. He questioned whether Isil’s murder of two British and two American hostages was sufficient justification for the campaign.

“Isil made their big incursion into Iraq in June. The West did nothing, despite thousands of people being killed,” said Gen Shaw. “What’s changed in the last month? Beheadings on TV of Westerners. And that has led us to suddenly change our policy and suddenly launch air attacks.”

He believes that Isil might have murdered the hostages in order to provoke a military response from America and Britain which could then be portrayed as a Christian assault on Islam. “What possible advantage is there to Isil of bringing us into this campaign?” asked Gen Shaw. “Answer: to unite the Muslim world against the Christian world. We played into their hands. We’ve done what they wanted us to do.”

However, Gen Shaw’s analysis is open to question. Even if they had the will, the rulers of Saudi Arabia and Qatar may be incapable of leading an ideological struggle against Isil. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is 91 and only sporadically active. His chosen successor, Crown Prince Salman, is 78 and already believed to be declining into senility. The kingdom’s ossified leadership is likely to be paralysed for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile in Qatar, the new Emir, Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, is only 34 in a region that respects age. Whether this Harrow and Sandhurst-educated ruler has the personal authority to lead an ideological counter-revolution within Islam is doubtful.

Given that Saudi Arabia and Qatar almost certainly cannot do what Gen Shaw believes to be necessary, the West may have no option except to take military action against Isil with the aim of reducing, if not eliminating, the terrorist threat.

“I just have a horrible feeling that we’re making things worse. We’re entering into this in a way we just don’t understand,” said Gen Shaw. “I’m against the principle of us attacking without a clear political plan.”

ISIS Controlling Sirte TV

by JoanneM

Obama was shamed into declaring his fight against ISIS in Iraq because so many foreign nations have stepped forward to help, yet he and the world continue to turn a blind eye to the infiltration of ISIS into Libya. ISIS fully intends to take over all the natural resources of Libya and if this is not bad enough, Obama has secretly offered to recognize them as the legitimate government if they take control of all the oil fields.

The Libyan army still strapped by an asinine UN embargo for weapons continuing since the NATO 2011 war, does its best to try and contain these radical Islamic groups filtering into Libya weekly with the help of Turkey, Qatar and Obama (under the table). The only airport left in Tripoli, Mitiga, the old Wheelus Airforce base is under the control of Abdulhakim Belhaj, a well known al Qaeda leader and founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) receives weapons and mercenaries regularly into that airport via Libyan airlines flying in from Turkey. Turkish airlines is bringing mercenaries into Misurata airport also as the city of Misurata is fully under the control of the terrorist group calling themselves “Libya Dawn”. Most of the radical Islamic militias (gangs) roaming Libya have joined with ISIS to attempt to steal Libya from the Libyans and turn it into their own Islamic training and funding ground.

Libya is fast becoming the “head of the snake” for ISIS, and as the Libyan Tribes continue to say: This is VERY DANGEROUS FOR THE WORLD!

Libya vs Goldman Sachs – the secret memo

Libya vs Goldman Sachs – the secret memo

There are recruitment adverts out at the Libyan Investment Authority. Libya’s sovereign wealth fund, seeking to regain direction after the country’s revolution, has employed consultants for a few key roles. There’s the CEO. And the CFO. And the chief investment officer.

And the head of risk, the head of internal audit, and the chief operating officer.

Oh, and the deputy CEO. And the head of legal.

There are revamps, and then there’s the LIA. Founded by Muammar Gaddafi’s second son, Saif Al Islam Gaddafi, in 2006, the fund has already gone through more drama and upheaval than most of its sovereign wealth peers have endured in their combined history. 

Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif


Waves of executives and managers have come and gone, foreign banks and fund managers have sold it extraordinary duds that soured during the financial crisis, the country has undergone painful revolution during which Saif was jailed and his father killed, its funds have been frozen by the UN (and remain so, at the fund’s own insistence, today) and at the end of it all it finds itself with a glut of legacy headaches and an empty management bench. Now, as it seeks to move forward, it must also look back. This year it has launched litigation against some of the biggest names in global banking, seeking to recover billions of dollars for deals those banks put the LIA into during the Gaddafi regime. And no matter how much Libyan executives seek to paint themselves as a breath of fresh air, correcting the sins of the past, they must inevitably face scrutiny for just what their role in the bad old days really was.

Transgressions of the past

AbdulMagid Breish, the chairman and acting CEO of the LIA, is an urbane and confident presence. He is absolutely fluent in English, while his thick glasses and swept-back hair give him something of the appearance of a mid-career Henry Kissinger. 

LIA AbdulMagid Breish

chairman and acting CEO
of the LIA

Breish has plenty of ideas for the future, but this year he’s been in the news for taking on the transgressions of the past, launching litigation to claim more than $2.5 billion from Goldman Sachs and Société Générale for instruments those banks sold to the LIA between 2007 and 2009. Today, flanked by a lawyer who never feels a need to rein him in, Breish is adamant the LIA is in the right on both cases. On Goldman – a case that rests on demonstrating that Goldman abused the trust it had built with the fledgling and somewhat wide-eyed sovereign fund, selling structures that its officials could not understand – he says: “It was very clear and evident that there was a breach in trust. They abused that confidence that was built, and the inexperience of individuals.

“I wouldn’t say it was a con job, but it was very near to it, where people were taken on holidays and bought gifts and things. The trust element was there and they totally took advantage of it and sold LIA complicated transactions with complicated documents that they couldn’t understand, at a moment when the whole world was going south, and they knew that.”

Goldman Sachs, which has applied for summary dismissal of the case before trial, tells Euromoney: “We think the claims are without merit, and we will defend them vigorously.”

The Société Générale case is less about mis-selling and more about over $58 million of payments the French bank made to a third party called Leinada, a Panama-registered vehicle owned by a man called Walid Al-Giahmi who was close to the Gaddafi regime – payments that the lawsuit describes as bribes.

“Then, SocGen did not disclose how much was being paid. They did not disclose the identity. It was like pulling teeth. Only months and months later we found out what was going on. SocGen itself was one of the prime banks in the world, at the forefront of derivatives trading. They bring in a party who is not even literate in financial affairs to advise them on structures and derivatives? Hard to understand.”

Société Générale tells Euromoney the allegations are unsubstantiated and says it “works occasionally with financial intermediaries in countries where it does not have local teams in place”.

A spokesman for Leinada told the Financial Times in March that “[the LIA] case is without merit”.

One can’t fault the LIA for boldness, but some are puzzled that this claim should be heading for court at all. The LIA’s legal representatives in the cases are Enyo Law, specifically partner Simon Twigden, who is considered a lawyer of the highest calibre; but look what he and his client are up against: the most powerful bank in the US and all its Wall Street legal advisers (although, these being London-heard cases, both Goldman and Société Générale are being represented by Herbert Smith). Many observers think the Goldman litigation in particular has no realistic chance of success. Did the LIA try to negotiate first?

The secret memo

New details emerge of
Libya’s claim against
Goldman Sachs

“I personally did not have any discussions with Goldman Sachs,” says Breish. Why, then, is litigation better than engagement? “We’ve been preparing ourselves for some time,” he says. “We’ve been analysing our documents, reviewing our strategy, talking to our legal counsel, and a lot of this has come out and about in the market. If Goldman Sachs wanted to come and talk, they had ample time to do so. It wasn’t as if we were working under cover: people knew what was going on.”

Indeed, Euromoney reported the LIA’s intention to sue both Goldman and Société Générale back in April 2013. (Interestingly, the third institution that then-CEO Mohsen Derregia named at that time, Millennium Capital, no longer appears to be on the LIA hit list, although Breish says “we are looking at around another five and investigating the documentation”.)

With Société Générale, he goes further, saying that he did write to the bank’s chairman before going to court, “inviting him to establish a direct line to sit and discuss this. I’m ready to meet with him and talk to him about this and see if we can settle some issues.” He says he didn’t hear back for two months. “And when we pressed their office I received an answer which was composed of half a page which didn’t say anything really: not even a willingness to meet, just ‘we’ve done nothing wrong’.”

Breish adds: “I find it perplexing that people at that level don’t even seem to think of their reputational risk.”

And how realistic is it that the LIA can win in court?

“Our objective is to regain all the money that we lost that belongs to the Libyan people,” Breish says. “That is what we will do. We feel very strongly about the principle of it, and we’re ready to go until the very end: it doesn’t really matter how much it is going to cost.”

But is that really what it’s about? Is litigation, Euromoney asks, also about sending a message, not just to international banks but to Libyans as well?

“Definitely. There’s a whole new message being sent.”

Gaddafi-era headaches 

Libyan plot thickens for
Goldman with Palladyne
‘money-laundering’ suit

For Goldman in particular, Gaddafi-era headaches go well beyond the LIA litigation. Its subsequent attempts to make amends for its losses have now put it in hot water with the US Department of Justice. In the end, the efforts to make things right might hurt Goldman much more than the original mistakes did.A confidential memo dated March 9 2010, prepared by Goldman Sachs for the Libyan Investment Authority and seen by Euromoney, sheds light on Goldman’s negotiations to move on from those disastrous trades.

The memo, titled ‘Unwind of trades and collateralized bond obligation transaction’, outlines a proposed deal whereby Goldman would pay $50 million, agree to unwind its trades, and pay additional expenses of up to $2 million, in order to draw a line under the deals from 2008 that would mutually release and discharge liability (which, the document says, carried an initial premium of $1.3 billion between them but by then were worth just $25 million). But this is not a straight compensation deal from Goldman to the Libyan fund.

It also involves a special-purpose vehicle called Tiber Bond Investment Ltd, a Cayman Islands entity. And another party is a group referred to as the ‘investment adviser’ in the memo – Palladyne International Asset Management. Under the terms outlined in the memo, the LIA would instruct Goldman to pay the amount directly to Tiber. Tiber would then issue a limited recourse note to LIA as its sole investor. Libya would then buy a $5 billion unlisted 6% note due 2030 at a price of 74%, meaning it would put $3.7 billion (74% of $5 billion) into Tiber, which would invest it in a portfolio of dollar-denominated investment-grade and high-yield bonds under Palladyne’s management.

Regular readers of Euromoney’s online edition will be familiar with Palladyne, an institution that first came to public light when a leaked internal LIA document drawing on a KPMG audit referred to it as having received $300 million from the LIA and having lost 17% of it in less than two years, despite having been paid $19 million in fees. (It also received $200 million apiece from two other Libyan institutions.)

Palladyne then turned up in another lawsuit earlier this year. Filed in a US District Court in Connecticut on behalf of a former Palladyne employee called Dan Friedman, and compiled by the noted ex-Jones Day international litigator Alan Kaufman, who has something of the bearing and charisma of George C Scott, it shows a boisterous turn of phrase. It describes Palladyne as “a kickback and money-laundering operation for the former dictatorial Gaddafi regime in Libya, operating under the public pretence of a hedge fund”.

The claim goes into some detail about Palladyne’s provenance: Dutch-incorporated, headquartered in Amsterdam, and run by Ismael Abudher, who is the son-in-law of Shukri Ghanem.

LIA Shukri Ghanam
Shukri Ghanem (c) former
head of Libya’s National
Oil Company

Ghanem was head of Libya’s National Oil Company (and a former Libyan prime minister) whose oil revenues fed the LIA, until the revolution; he was found dead in the river Danube in Vienna in April 2012. Palladyne calls the claims “entirely untrue and ludicrous”, presenting them as bad blood from a bitter former employee. In turn, Kaufman tells Euromoney: “We investigated this for 18 months on four continents before filing, and are fully confident that we will prove these claims.”

The case claims that Palladyne had absolutely no investment capability, which raises the question why it was initially entrusted with $700 million of Libyan money. One person familiar with the matter says: “the $300 million [from the LIA] was given to Palladyne without a single piece of paper to document it or explain their investment plans”.

It also raises the question of why such an institution should be appointed as the broker to resolve Goldman’s problems with the LIA, or why it would be entrusted with a new portfolio intended to hold $3.7 billion of assets. “At the time they were appointed investment adviser, they had already lost more than 17% of the money they had been given in a short period of time including the rising market that followed the 2008 crash,” says a source familiar with the matter.

“The whole thing is just ludicrous. The LIA, which has already lost money through Palladyne, is solving the problem by investing 10 times more money with Palladyne. Justice [the DoJ] looks at this, and says: ‘This is nuts, there is no innocent explanation for this and no business terms that could explain it’.”

The Goldman memo suggests the bank knew how this looked – paying $50 million to an institution with allegedly no capability to do anything with it but receive it – because it appears to try to head off some gnarly complications from the outset.

The memo specifically refers to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in a bullet point in a section about payments, saying that GSI (Goldman Sachs International) “will only accept this instruction” (to pay the money to the SPV) if the LIA delivers that payment instruction, and to the satisfaction of FCPA representations by LIA as set out in the terms of a separate letter. Euromoney has not seen this additional letter.

The memo also specifically points out that although Goldman did preliminary due diligence on Palladyne, it “did not provide a basis for Goldman to determine that Palladyne” is an “appropriate” investment adviser, or about the “services” rendered by Palladyne to the LIA. Finally it insists that both the LIA and Palladyne are responsible for determining whether the transaction is suitable for them, and that they “cannot rely on Goldman for any determination” as to whether it’s a good idea.

This section proceeds to sever Goldman from whatever happens to that money next. It is saying, in essence: now you’re on your own, and you decide whether or not it’s a good deal. And in aggregate, the memo infers: for our $52 million of payments, we will be released of all liability from our old trades. It’s odd, though, that only $2 million of that appears to go to the LIA, when the liability in the recent lawsuit against Goldman is put at more than $1 billion.

A lawyer familiar with the matter is puzzled as to why the memo goes into such great detail about what will happen to the money after it is transferred to Palladyne. “It should be none of Goldman’s business,” he says. “They should care less about what the LIA is going to do. You don’t care if it goes to pay for ice cream cones for every person in Bangladesh. If I’m unwinding my trades that I did for you, and giving a little cash to you, that’s the end of it: a release of liability. All of the detail about Tiber would never have been in a settlement and liability release.”

Euromoney understands that this was the fifth proposal that Palladyne, Goldman and the LIA (two sets of lawyers, Nabarro and the Libyan firm Bakhnug, are also mentioned) had discussed, and the last, following considerable negotiation.

The battle for the Libyan
Investment Authority

It is understood that events were then overtaken by revolution and that the payment was never made, although this commonly accepted version of events is slightly problematic: the memo, which suggests an arrangement approaching finality, is dated March 2010, and the first street protests in Benghazi did not get under way until February 2011. But Palladyne itself, in a rare communication with the outside world, cites this version to Euromoney. “Our expertise in finance and asset management was sought several years ago in the negotiation of a potential resolution between the LIA and Goldman Sachs,” a spokesperson says. “That process was halted with the rise of the Arab Spring in Libya in 2011.” Euromoney offered to come to Amsterdam to see for ourselves what Palladyne actually is. Palladyne declined, but sent a statement claiming it had “a team of around 30 professionals working with a wide variety of clients”.The lawsuit by Palladyne’s former employee specifically mentions the Goldman negotiations. “Defendant Abudher was inserted directly into the Goldman-LIA dispute by his father-in-law, and Abudher immediately proceeded to propose five distinctive ways for Goldman to ‘make right’ with the LIA, with the coincidence that under each option, Palladyne would be the asset ‘manager’ and collect fees and payments,” the suit alleges. Because no legitimate bank, fund or investment company would partner with Palladyne, the complaint says: “Abudher’s proposals were a transparent effort by his father-in-law to take a major loss for Libya and turn it into profit for the Ghanem-Abudher family.”

The suit openly refers to “an alleged attempt to launder a bribe to Libya” and says that funnelling the alleged bribe of $50 million through Palladyne would “show ‘good faith’ by Goldman that it would undertake to rectify the losses”.

Breish agrees with the claim’s depiction of Palladyne as a front. “It is an accurate description,” he says. “No investment capability.” He says the LIA now wants its money back. This is likely to be the next litigation we see. “Our lawyers are looking at this also,” he says. “It’s the same story: funds being assigned to someone who’s been close to the regime.” That is likely to mean going through the Dutch courts, and there might be a queue: Palladyne was raided by the Dutch Openbaar Ministerie (public prosecution service) and Fiscal Information and Investigation Service in simultaneous actions on June 21, 2013. The officers conducting the raid were heavily armed.

There is another point of view. One former LIA employee says: “At the time for us Palladyne was a legitimate counterparty. It was supposed to be a mixed portfolio, though they seemed to keep most of it in cash, and charged us 3%.” And since Goldman apparently didn’t make the payment, its sins do not look particularly egregious. But under the FCPA, even the discussion of a payment is enough for a penalty, if that payment can be construed as a bribe.

Whatever the outcome of the litigation battles, the LIA is attempting to move on from the controversies of the Gaddafi-era past.

As for Breish, lets not forget he used to work for the previous government and was well rewarded for his services, he helped to topple the Jamahirya so he could get all the funds of Libya into his pockets…. you can google him, he has a twin nationality which is an English passport also the Libyan passport worked with MI6 and was in bed with the UAE… need I say more?

I never thought it will come a day that I would see all Western News Media GROOMING a terrorist as a good man and politician for Libya. It seems to me that the west are copying the policy of Israel when after 1945 they went to Palestine, with the blessings of the English and the Zionists to thank them blew up the Hotel David and blamed it onto the Palestinians. On July 22, 1946, the southwestern corner of the hotel was bombed in a terrorist attack by the militant Zionist group the Irgun. 91 people died and 45 people were injured. An earlier attempt by the Irgun to attack the hotel was foiled when the Haganah learned of it and warned the British authorities.[2] On May 4, 1948, when the British flag was lowered, the building became a Jewish stronghold. At the end of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, the hotel found itself overlooking “no-man’s land” on the armistice line that divided Jerusalem into Israeli and Jordanian territory. It was purchased by the Dan Hotels chain in 1958. The film Exodus was shot at the hotel in 1960. When East Jerusalem was annexed by Israel following the 1967 Six-Day War, the hotel was expanded, with two additional floors.

Here is one of those terrorists:  Menakhem Vol’fovich Begin; 16 August 1913 – 9 March 1992) he was the leader of the Zionist militant group Irgun, the Revisionist breakaway from the larger Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah. He proclaimed a revolt, on 1 February 1944, against the British mandatory government, which was opposed by the Jewish Agency. As head of the Irgun, he targeted the British in Palestine.[1] During his leadership Irgun targeted the Arabs in the Deir Yassin massacre and in 1977 he was elected prime minister.

So now the Zionist propaganda internet newspapers are doing the same thing again in Libya, Let me remind you who ABDELHAKIM BELHAJ IS: Abdul Hakim Alkhoal de Belhaj graduate of civil engineering and after graduating immediately traveled to Afghanistan for jihad in 1988 participants in the Afghan jihad at the time and remained there for several years he joined the group the Libyan Islamic Fighting since the beginning of its establishment (any of the founders) at the beginning of the nineties, but After opening the cable left Afghanistan and traveled to twenty-two States, notably or rather most stay: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Sudan. He returned to Libya in 1994 and began to rearrange the group and trained mountain green for processing for jihad against the system, but the system is pre-empted the group multiplying training centers in 1995 and killed her prince Abdul Rahman Hattab and could Abdelhakim Belhadj to leave Libya and return to Afghanistan, known Abdul Hakim Belhaj Throughout his jihadist as ( Abdullah Sadiq). Was chosen Abdel Hakim Belhaj (Abdullah Sadiq) emir of the Libyan Fighting Group in the rearrangement of the ranks of the group in Afghanistan, and Abu Hazim was chosen as his deputy, Abu Mundhir al-Saadi as a legitimate administrator, Khalid Al-Sharif as a security administrator.Belhadj now occupies a large role in Libya’s new leadership in Tripoli Military Council which is fully controlled at Mitiga airport, where they are on the way import and export of arms and the entry of a large group of al-Qaeda members and leaders of his colleagues in Afghanistan.

And his close friends are: Abdul Hakim al Haseidi a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, one of the city of Derna, too, has left Libya in 1995 to settle its place in Afghanistan, before returning to stability in Libya, al Haseidi battalion commander «Martyrs of Abu Salim» Battalion, the largest in  Derna east of the country, and was seen as one of the most prominent leaders in the field. Despite his background and demanding permanent jihadist b «Arbitration Sharia» stepping cautiously al Haseidi the work towards closer political Mahmoud Jibril, one of the symbols of the liberal trend in the country. The former leader of the Libyan group condemns the attack on the U.S. embassy, ​​and says that «the American ambassador helped us during and after the revolution, and  this act must be punished. Mustafa Khalifa al-Saadi, who holds a master’s degree in Islamic Studies from Pakistan in 1999 and a member of Scholars Libya, collaborator and member of the Fatwa and preacher in several mosques in Tripoli and the throwing many seminars inflammatory and lessons, and accused of involvement with al-Qaeda, and that the latter Abu Salim prison from 2004 to 2010, until he was released on August 20, 2011, to take over now as Minister of the so-called care of the families of martyrs and missing persons. And last but not least is: friend Ghaithi was a cadre of Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and confidant of bin Laden and a friend of Abdul Hakim Belhadj, was commissioned by the government functions to secure the border have been given large sums of money to spend to establish a private army, and therefore outside the scope of the General Staff and outside the budget of the Ministry of Defense and outside the control of the ministries of defense and interior, He accused by the defense minister of trying to assassinate the minister on the grounds that the Minister issued a decree for his dismissal from office.
Some Libyans living in the eastern regions The punitive ideas in fact spread over a wider range of that only Nhzareth between radical Islamic groups, regarding them as the fact that the United States failed in recognizing the wake attack Benghazi in September of the past, stressing not all extremists belonging to particular groups, which may create an opportunity for recruitment. On February 15 last, Dr. Awad Barasi Vice Chairman Minister said that after the appointment of the Minister of Awqaf government will open the door to dialogue with militants in Libya by clerics and imams inside and outside the country, there is no way to resolve only peaceful means and dialogue.

This is a quote of these terrorists who were brought by NATO, F.U.K.U.S AND ISRAEL and now they are trying to polish them into politicians: “Libya is a nation of Islam and Jihad. The light of Islam will shine forth from it despite the noses of everyone. The weapons are here and the Mujahideen from every corner of the earth are here with us and we have all the weaponry – that was prohibited before – with us now. We will not hesitate to use it against anyone who touches the land of Libya and that is the end of this discussion.”

Abdul Hakim Alkhoal de Belhaj

Historical leader of Al Qaeda in Libya, Abdel Hakim Belhadj, is now the military governor of “liberated” Tripoli and in charge of organizing the army of the “new Libya”. In the 80s, the CIA instigated Awatha al-Zuwawi to create an agency in Libya to recruit mercenaries for the jihad against the Soviets in Afghanistan. As from 1986, recruits were trained in the Salman al-Farisi Libyan camp in Pakistan, under the authority of anti-Communist billionaire Osama bin Laden. When bin Laden moved to Sudan, the Libyan jihadists followed him there, and regrouped in a compound of their own. In 1994, Osama bin Laden dispatched Libyan jihadists back to their country to kill Muammar Gaddafi and reverse the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. All across “liberated” Cyrenaica, Al-Qaeda men have been spreading terror, resorting to massacre and torture; they have specialized in slitting the throats of Gaddafi sympathizers, eye-plucking and cutting off the breasts of immodest women. The lawyer for the Libyan Jamahiriya, Marcel Ceccaldi, has accused NATO of “complicity in war crimes.”

Belhaj and his gangs did this to the Libyans: While Belhaj claims that now he is a politician and does not give orders to massacres or the killing, beheading, kidnapping and rapping, here are some horrific Videos and  Pictures of his gang affiliates from 2011 till today:

Libya’s Abdulhakim Belhadj: “We are working to find a solution to end this crisis”

Four years of revolution have not left Libya the way its people were expecting. Huge political division and armed conflict are tearing the country apart. Lives have been lost and Libya’s resources wasted. It’s a situation that’s worrying the international community, particularly Libya’s neighbouring North African countries.

We discussed the goings-on in Libya with politician, military leader and president of the nationalist Islamist Al-Watan (‘Homeland’) Party, Abdulhakim Belhadj.

Belhadj’s backround lies in Salafi-Jihadism. He fought in Afghanistan and was later imprisoned in the US and Libya for establishing the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. Belhadj also participated in the downfall of the capital Tripoli during the 2011 uprising.

He now introduces himself as a politician and a moderate Islamist, calling for discussion and rejecting terrorism.

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim, euronews: “First of all, what is the current situation in Libya?”

Abdulhakim Belhadj: “The problem right now in Libya is totally political. This issue has resulted in Libya being divided into two parliaments: the ‘Libyan Parliament’ and the ‘National Congress’. This means there are two legislative bodies, two governments and even two armies.

“But, the reality we are witnessing on the ground plays the main role in what is happening in Libya these days.”

euronews: “So, you’re saying this conflict began as a political struggle, but turned into an armed conflict? Who started the battle? And how did it begin?”

Abdulhakim Belhadj: “It started when the retired General Khalifa Haftar came back onto the scene. He took part in a military coup on the ruling General National Congress (GNC), before forming the current parliament in Tobruk.

“So, General Haftar is the person who sparked this war. He contended that he was against terrorist organisations and groups working outside the boundaries of the law. But I would describe this general as an outlaw, because he began this war and failed to find a solution to the Libyan crisis.”

euronews: “Some reports say forces loyal to you started a war in the streets after you extended your control over Tripoli airport. They suggest you are the cause of this internal fighting. So, are you part of this armed conflict?”

Abdulhakim Belhadj “No, of course this is not true. And people observing the situation in Libya know who Abdulhakim Belhadj is. I resigned the presidency of the Tripoli Military Council, which comprised more than 23,000 fighters and my goal is not to cling on to this scene or position. Neither did I order any fighter to do so.

“I now lead a political party – the Al-Watan Party – and our main loyalty lies with the nation. We want to address the Libya question and put the interests of the country and its citizens first. This affiliation is now leading us to gather for discussion with all the Libyan factions.” ****(Here is how he created his political party: “In Tripoli, the military governor of Tripoli, the member of the Al Qaeda(= It’s Parent’s are CIA + MOSSAD) Abdelhakim Belhadj has funded the party ‘Hizb El Watan “with money from the Libyan people. It uses its influence to support this party. It uses the meeting rooms and hotels for meetings and gain the confidence of the Libyans.” So by stealing the money of the Libyan people he has changed his ways? really? Does a leopard changes his spots?)

euronews: “Do you accuse certain countries of being behind General Khalifa Haftar?”

Abdelhakim Belhadj: “Yes, certainly. And they don’t deny that. The United Arab Emirates, for example. We hoped they would offer support for the stability of Libya, that they would help to restore security and establish Libyan institutions. But we notice now that the UAE sends aircraft, weapons, ammunition and armour to those who are killing the Libyan people.” ***(Both Belhaj and Haftar are fighting for power plus they are financed by the same players the only difference Haftar is not that of a fanatic and UAE decided to bet on him. But all players meaning FUKUS, QATAR, TURKEY, UAE, SAUDI ARABIA are financing both.)

euronews: “If these countries are, as you say, supporting General Khalifa Haftar, which nations are supporting you?”

Abdulhakim Belhadj: “I want to reiterate that I am not one of those people who is armed, who is walking around with weapons. But, I can say that those who are leading the scene now and are carrying out the orders of the GNC are those who have had legitimacy from the beginning.

“For example, the military forces operating under the name of Fajr Libya – or Libyan Dawn – are valid. It has been in operation since the era of former Defence Minister Abdullah al-Thani, who gave the group authority. It took orders from Chief of Staff Abdul Salam Jadallah.” ****(They stopped being valid after the election of June 2014 when they lost the elections and now they are illegitimate and not internationally recognized, Lets not forget that Hassi is also a terrorist belongs to the HMS terrorist group and he presents himself as the prime minister of Tripoli…..)

euronews: “What is preventing you from meeting your opponents to negotiate an end to the crisis?”

Abdelhakim Belhadj: “We support this and we are calling for talks. We have sat down several times with international organisations, such as the United Nations, and we have introduced many initiatives to try to reach a solution. But, we don’t think that what the UN did recently at the conference in Geneva was effective.

“With due respect to all the international organisations supporting a resolution to this conflict, I would like to say: some of those who are invited to conferences such as the one in Geneva are far removed from what is influencing politics in Libya, especially the current ground operations.”

euronews: “As we understand, you are saying that you are just a political man, but what we do know is that you are in fact now ruling the city of Tripoli.”

Abdulhakim Belhadj: “That’s not completely true. Our only comment on the confusing scene in Libya is as follows: due to a series of weak governments in our country following the uprising of February 17, 2011, plans to develop security and military institutions have not been carried out. So, Libya is awash with militia groups and armed entities, which do not have the official support needed to legitimise them.

“So, the scene remains as it is now. Divisions and conflicts have occurred because some political groups have allowed armed entities to increase their control on state institutions in Tripoli.”

euronews: “Are you now a fighter under the guise of a politician?”

Abdulhakim Belhadj: “I stand with my brothers, who are seeking to find a solution to the Libyan crisis regardless of their political affiliation. Because, democracy means accepting the principle that people have different points of view. We have taken this on board.

“But, what I would like to confirm here is this: today we are working to find a solution to end this crisis – a crisis we do not want to continue or to be repeated.”

euronews: “Your background lies in salafi-jihadism. You fought in Afghanistan and were imprisoned in the US, then in Libyan jails because you established the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. You also participated in the downfall of Tripoli during the 2011 uprising. But now you introduce yourself as a politician and a moderate Islamist, calling for discussion and rejecting terrorism. What is the secret behind this drastic change?”

Abdulhakim Belhadj: “You are going back to our roots and the war we fought against the Muammar Gaddafi dictatorship. That battle was linked to the spatial and temporal conditions at the time.

“Because we were fighting a dictatorial regime in Libya, it was necessary for us to use weapons in order to save the Libyan people from Gaddafi’s rule.

“This was the role of the Group in the past, but I would like to clearly affirm that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group has been terminated. It ceased to exist at the downfall of the Gaddafi regime.”

euronews: “You accused the British government of involvement in the torture you were subjected to at the hands of Libyan intelligence officials. Are you still filing legal action against them?”

Abdelhakim Belhadj: “Yes. I was tortured in Libyan prisons by Libyan intelligence officials, with the help of British intelligence. We discovered evidence of this after entering the security headquarters in Tripoli during the revolution. We found documents proving that the British Intelligence Agency MI-6 were involved, as well as some other people who handed me over to the Gaddafi regime.

“They put me at the mercy of a regime that does not respect human rights, and I would ask the British government to acknowledge this. It is proved by letters, which are signed by British agents. I ask them simply for an apology, then I will drop the matter.”
