Libya bans Palestinians, Syrians and Sudanese from entry
(Reuters) / 6 January 2015
Libya’s official government has banned Palestinians, Syrians and Sudanese from entry because their countries are undermining the oil producing nation’s security, the interior minister said.
The government of Prime Minister Abdullah Al Thinni runs only a rump state in eastern Libya after a rival group seized Tripoli in the summer, setting ups its own parliament and a government not recognised by world powers.
Thinni’s government would therefore only be able to enforce the ban at the eastern airports of Tobruk and Labraq and the land crossing with Egypt. The country’s crossing to Tunisia and airports in Misrata and Tripoli-Mitiga are out of its control.
“We’ve decided to ban nationals from Sudan, Syria and Palestine after the intelligence services and police established that some Arab countries are involved in undermining Libya’s security and sovereignty,” Thinni’s interior minister, Omar Al Sanki, told Reuters late on Monday.
Thinni’s main military partner, former army general Khalifa Haftar **(and a CIA AGENT), has repeatedly accused Sudanese, Palestinians and Syrians of having joined Ansar Al Sharia and other Islamist groups which are battling pro-government forces in the eastern city of Benghazi.
In September, Thinni said Sudan had attempted to airlift weapons and ammunition to the new Tripoli rulers.Khartoum denied this, saying the weapons were meant for a joint border force under a bilateral agreement.
BRITAIN IS A TWO FACED BITCH AND SHE CAN DENY TILL HELL FREEZES OVER SHE FINANCES BOTH SIDES!
Britain denies supporting any party in Libya confirms lack of recognition of the government of Hassi
Rusaifa news: renewed Britain to warn of the deterioration of the security and political situation in Libya, at the time in which it stressed that it does not recognize the General National Conference (outgoing), or the government of what is called “National Salvation”, headed by Omar Hassi, in the Libyan capital Tripoli. ****(That is a blatant lie, Internationally recognized is the GNC unless Britain is not in that group which I doubt it, lying does not help the situation and especially when the Ambassador in his twitter line said that “Badi (Libyan Dawn) is fighting for the freedom of his country” Lets not forget who Badi is! He is the one who ATTACKED the international airport of Tripoli and destroyed it completely killing dozens of innocent people on his wake… he is responsible for the massacre of Gargour killing over 70 innocent protesters and injured thousands…. he has raped, killed and tortured thousands of people and Ambassador Aaron who by the way is a Jew descendent says that this psychopath is fighting for the freedom and democracy of Libya? Aaron also mention that Hafter (Libyan Dignity) is also fighting for the freedom of Libya, lets not forget who Hafter is: He is a CIA agent trained and financed by them betrayed his country too many times he is the one who helped NATO to destroy Libya and topple the Jamahiryia government so that he could come to power, his sons robbed Libyan banks took over millions of dollars and guess who covered all this mess under the rag? The American Embassy together with the Ambassador Deborah Jones. Both countries never mentioned the massacres Hefter did, nor did they tell you he has tortured thousands POW nor did they tell you that he destroyed a whole village in Benghazi killing innocent people just because he thought there were some fanatics in that village. So you see Britain does what is best for her divide and conquer.)
Quoted CNN statement of the British Foreign and distributed by the British ambassador to Libya, Michael Aaron, saying: “The United Kingdom does not have any official contacts or meetings of any kind, with the government in Tripoli, also does not have any British military delegation visited.” ****(Again that is a lie Aaron is on a daily contact with both Libyan Dawn and Libyan Dignity, What Britain DOES NOT want is the Libyan Tribes to take control as they know once the tribes take control it’s the end of Britain and America..)
While the British ambassador stressed that his country “did not provide military support to any of the sides in Libya”, ****(again Aaron is lying here, his country has provided military support and intelligence support so that the Libyan Dawn remains in Tripoli which the Brits want the Muslim Brotherhood in power so they will do everything in their power to make it happen) he expressed his country’s deep concern about the “deteriorating political and security situation in Libya, in the wake of the attack on the Crescent oil region, and subsequent strikes on Misrata.” *****(Britain is concerned? what a hypocrite, she was, one of the countries who decided to destroy Libya from the start, what did they expect it would happen? Their plan from the beginning is to divide Libya into 3 pieces they want to install the Muslim brotherhood which its roots is in Misrata, its the Misrata Dawn which blew up the Crescent oil region and Britain is worried; really?)
Said Aaron said that “Britain believes that the solution in Libya can not be militarily, also calls on all Libyans to the removal of their personal differences aside and work peacefully together, to support the United Nations process in order to find a solution acceptable to all parties,” according to the reported statement. ****(I suggest that Mr. Aaron and Britain’s foreign ministry should stay out of our business and let us deal with the mess that Britain, France and America left after the destruction they did in Libya just because Qaddafi wouldn’t play with their rules. JUST TO SHOW HOW BRITAIN AND AMERICA DO NOT ASSIST THE MISURATI LIBYAN DAWN HERE IS A VIDEO)
“Turkey condemns Libyan threat to shoot down any Turkish plane.”
Turkish Airline has been bringing inside Libya full of ARMS &
Turkey has condemned a threat by an internationally recognized Libyan army to shoot down any Turkish plane, civilian or military, that penetrates into Libyan airspace. *****(It’s about time…. the Turkish airline together with Qatar has been landing in Libya since the end of the war in 2011 assisting the rebels/betrayers/terrorists in Libya by giving them arms, financing them and importing mercenaries, causing the escalation of Militias fighting and in the crossfire innocent civilians are being killed. Taking in consideration that America and its allies want this chaos in Libya so later on to divide Libya into three pieces. Finally the government in Tobruk is waking up from their lethargic sleep and stepping up to the demands of the Libyan civilians. So Turkey can drown in its own shit together with Qatar and America. Keep on complaining see if any Libyan will care other than DAASH, ISIS IN DERNA, LIBYAN DAWN, LIBYAN SUNRISE AND LIBYAN DIGNITY.)
A statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that the “irresponsible” statement that is in violation of the international law is “absolutely unacceptable.” ****(The audacity of the Turks leaves me speechless! What is absolutely unacceptable is that Turkey is assisting to all the Libyan psychopaths which I mentioned before together with the mercenaries, arms and money that Qatar and Turkey airlines import into Libya. They go against the UN embargo but who gives a damn to the UN when QATAR AND TURKEY are doing the bidding of Uncle Sam and the Elite families.)
“We strongly condemn this kind of hostile behavior that target our country,” Ankara said. ****(Oh poor Turkey!! She is so innocent from all charges! She never helped Libyan Dawn! or Al Qaeda, or Sharia or Muslim Brotherhood or the group in Derna Isis.)
In the time since country’s dictator Moammar Gaddafi’s overthrow, rival militias widely believed to be backed by regional powers have fought for control of Libya. An alliance of Islamist and other militias captured the capital Tripoli last year and revived an earlier government and parliament.
The Tripoli government accuses Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates of backing its rivals in Tobruk, including by carrying out airstrikes. The Tobruk government says Turkey and Qatar back Islamist militias.
A Libyan warplane from forces loyal to the internationally recognized government bombed a Greek-operated oil tanker anchored offshore on Sunday, killing two crewmen in an escalation of a battle between the country’s rival factions.
Shortly after the attack, Turkish Airlines, the only foreign airline still flying to Libya, has suspended its flights to Misrata over concerns about worsening security in the country. ****(Misrata is the nest of the Libyan Dawn so pardon me if I do not believe the Turkish airline)
Turkey’s flag carrier cancelled its İstanbul – Misrata flights on Sunday, and suspended all Misrata flights, but had not yet taken a decision on other flights to Libya. Turkish Airlines also flies to Benghazi, Tripoli and Sebha in Libya.
Three years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is mired in a power struggle between two rival factions of former rebels who have established competing governments, both claiming legitimacy and control of vast oil resources. ****(The Tobruk government is the legal government chosen by the people the government in Tripoli is the hand of Turkey and Qatar had they not assisted them with full armament, finance, logistics etc they would not be able to control Tripoli. Do not forget that Qatar and Turkey are for the Muslim Brotherhood and Isis.)
Ankara said that it is obvious that the statement is made by “certain segments” who conduct air strikes, causing civilian casualties, destroy the country’s infrastructure and violate both international law and human rights. ****(Is Turkey talking about Human rights really??? Should we take a look at Turkey and its Human rights violation… Breaking International law by supplying arms, mercenaries, money, logistics and training in Syria and Libya. What about the Human rights of the Kurds in Turkey? the Armenians? When a country wants to criticize another country its best that first they look at their own back yard.)Turkey also doled out a criticism to the international community for turning a blind eye to “those air strikes” which in turn “encouraged” those who made that “irresponsible statement.” ****(I am speechless! What an impertinence from Turkey who is encouraging whom?)
It noted that a number of civilian flights from Turkey to Libya help address the humanitarian and economic needs of Libyan people at this difficult times.
Turkey said it has launched necessary diplomatic initiatives and already contacted the UN’s point man to Libya.
24 reasons ISIS are wrong: Muslim scholars blast Islamic State

A large group of Islamic theologians addressed the head of the Islamic State in an open letter, articulately accusing the movement of practices that have nothing to do with Islam, even rejecting the extremists’ right to call themselves jihadists.
Over a hundred Muslim scholars and clergymen from all over the world have released on Wednesday an address to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, accusing the self-proclaimed caliph and his army of heinous war crimes and violation of fundamental principles of Islam, illiterate use of Islamic scripture torn from the context and perversion of the rules of morality and Sharia law.
“Who gave you authority over the ummah [Muslim people]?” the letter questions. “Was it your group? If this is the case, then a group of no more than several thousand has appointed itself the ruler of over a billion-and-a-half Muslims. This attitude is based upon a corrupt circular logic that says: ‘Only we are Muslims, and we decide who the caliph is, we have chosen one and so whoever does not accept our caliph is not a Muslim,’” the document said.
The letter has been published in two languages, Arabic and English, on a specially-created website. Though the document goes into in-depth analyses of the nuances and exegesis of Islamic texts, the general message is combined on the very first page of the address, outlined in 24 essentials downtrodden by the militants of the Islamic State – according to the authors of the letter.
The absolute majority of the essentials detailed in the letter – 20 out of 24 – have to do with acts forbidden in modern Islam. They deal with many aspects of noble human life: prohibiting such acts as killing of the innocent, prisoners and emissaries (journalists included), denying women and children their rights, the re-introduction of slavery, torture, disfiguring the dead and destroying graves, harming or mistreatingbelievers of other religions of the Scripture, starting armed insurrection, declaring caliphate“without consensus from all Muslims,” as well as issuing fatwas (legal rulings, interpretations of the Islamic law) without proper religious education,mastery of the Arabic language,“oversimplify[ing] Sharia matters” and even “ignoring the reality of contemporary times.”
As the authors of the letter observe, all of those interdictions have been ruthlessly violated by the leadership and members of the Islamic State.
In particular, the document stresses the unprecedented number of people executed by the Islamic State militants for their beliefs.
“You have killed many innocents who were neither combatants nor armed, just because they disagree with your opinion,” the letter said, denying the Islamic State the right to call the faithful to jihad. “There is no such thing as offensive, aggressive jihad just because people have different religions or opinions.”

“Jihad is a noble concept in Islam,” told VICE News the national director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Nihad Awad. “It is the right to defend oneself and one’s country. But people cannot take it into their own hands. As an act of aggression, it is a violation,” he said.
“They claim to be jihadists, but they are not.I urge everyone not to refer to them as jihadists,” Awad added.
The letter specifically focused attention on POWs being executed by the Islamic State in their thousands in Iraq and Syria.

“You have killed many prisoners,”the document states, addressing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his men, “including the 1,700 captives atCamp Speicher in Tikrit in June, 2014; the 200 captives at the Sha’er gas field in July, 2014; the 700 captives of the Sha’etat tribe in Deir el-Zor (600 of whom were unarmed civilians); the 250 captives at the Tabqah air base in Al-Raqqah in August, 2014; Kurdish and Lebanese soldiers, and many untold others whom God knows. These are heinous war crimes,” the address states.

The children who died in IS attacks or were used in combat were added to the list of shameful IS deeds.
“In your schools some children are tortured and coerced into doing your bidding and others are being executed,” the letter says. “These are crimes against innocents who are so young they are not even morally ACCOUNTABLE.”
The letter also calls attention to frivolous handling of the holy texts and intentionally-selective citation of certain passages in order to legitimize atrocities perpetrated by the IS.
“It is not permissible to quote a verse, or part of a verse, without thoroughly considering and comprehending everything that the [Koran] and Hadith relate about that point,” the letter notes.
“It is known that all religions forbid the killing of emissaries,” the letter said. “Journalists — if they are honest and of course not spies — are emissaries of truth, because their job is to expose the truth to people in general.”

The slavery that returned to the Middle East with the rise of the Islamic State was not ignored in the document either.
Despite Islam’s consensus taking decision to abolish slavery over a century ago, “Islamic State militants have captured women from minority communities and forced them to marry fighters or sold them into slavery.”

The most effective ideological critics of the IS should come from within the Muslim community, shared Nihad Awad, who believes that the open letter is “intended for a conservative audience” and is “very convincing.”
“People should know that what ISIS is doing is not Islam,” Muzammil Siddiqi, the chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America, which facilitated publication of the letter, told VICE News. “It’s important that a large number of scholars are speaking up and saying this is wrong.”
