Libya and “The Arab Spring”: Neoliberalism, “Regime Change” and NATO’s “Humanitarian Wars”

by Michel Chossudovsky, Finian Cunningham and Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya – November 2011 – GlobalResearch

 

INTRODUCTION

First in Global Research’s Interactive Reader Series, we bring to the attention of our readers a collection of Global Research articles on the “Arab Spring”, covering recent developments in several countries across the Middle East and North Africa region. The Interactive Reader is a collection of previously published articles on Global Research. Its objective is to provide an overview as well as a comparative understanding of country-level experiences of the upheavals.

This selection of articles is intended to dispel the notion that the “Arab Spring” is just a pro-democracy movement spreading spontaneously from country to country, opening the way to a meaningful change in the political and economic landscape. The term “Arab Spring” is itself a Western-imposed term conjured up by people who appear to have little understanding of the complexities and realities of the region.

The double-standards of the U.S. and the European Union have become visible during the course of these tumultuous events. Both the US and the EU have kept silent about the brutal repression of unarmed civilian protesters in the Persian Gulf sheikhdoms, such as Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, while, by contrast, the Western powers have vehemently pushed for conflict with Libya and Syria.

America is no “role model” of democratization for the Arab World, comprising some 22 countries with a combined population of 300 million. US military presence imposed on Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and other Arab countries over decades, coupled with Washington-inspired “free market” reforms, are the root cause of state violence.

Washington’s agenda for Egypt and Tunisia was to hijack the protest movement; what prevails in Egypt is the maintenance of a de facto military regime. In Tunisia, following the October 2011 parliamentary elections, the neoliberal policy framework remains unscathed.

From Washington’s standpoint, regime replacement no longer requires the installation of authoritarian military rulers, as in the heyday of US imperialism. Regime change can be implemented by co-opting political parties, financing civil society groups, infiltrating the protest movement, and by manipulating national elections.

The ultimate objective is to sustain the interests of foreign powers and to uphold the “Washington consensus” of the IMF/World Bank economic agenda that has served to impoverish millions throughout the Arab World and beyond.

Moreover, Western powers have used “Political Islam” –including the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda-affiliated groups– to pursue their hegemonic objectives. Covert operations are launched to weaken the secular state, foment sectarian violence and create social divisions throughout the Arab World.

In Libya, the “pro-democracy” rebels were led by Al Qaeda affiliated paramilitary brigades under the supervision of NATO Special Forces. The much-vaunted “Liberation” of Tripoli was carried out by former members of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG)****(The leader of LIFG is Abdulhakim Belhaj MI6 asset and very close friend of the Late Ambassador Stevens, Hillary Clinton, Senator McCain and last but not least the UN representative in Libya “King Bernandino Leon” who gives orders and demands that the HoR international recognized government sits down and talk negotiations with the terrorist GNC holding captive the capital of Tripoli; which are: MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, LIBYAN DAWN/FAJR, SUNRISE, ISIS/DAESH, AL SHARAIA, AND ALL OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS. I ask you had your country been in situation like Libya would they sit down and negotiate with TERRORISTS?)

Destabilization of sovereign states through “regime change” is closely coordinated with military planning.

War preparations to attack Syria and Iran have been in an advanced state of readiness for several years. The road to Tehran goes through Damascus. A US/NATO-sponsored war on Iran would involve, as a first step, a destabilization campaign (“regime change”) including covert intelligence operations in support of rebel forces directed against the Syrian government.

A “humanitarian war” under the logo of “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P), as seen in Libya, is on the Western powers’ agenda for Syria. Such a venture would also contribute to the ongoing destabilization of Lebanon.

Were a military campaign to be waged against Syria, Israel would be directly or indirectly involved in military and intelligence operations. The hitherto covert role of Saudi Arabia and Turkey in destabilizing Syria would also emerge as open aggression towards long-time regional rival Iran.

A war on Syria could quite possibly ignite a conflagration across the entire Middle East and North Africa, with repercussions on a global scale: Iran’s historic allies, Russia and China, will be pitted against the US and NATO powers; and religious schisms across the region could vent into an explosion of internecine conflicts; also proxy wars currently being waged in East Africa by Western powers could escalate with untold human suffering in an already famine-hit region.

War plans directed against Syria are coordinated with those pertaining to Iran.

Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons programme is the pretext and the justification. Tehran is also identified as a “State sponsor of terrorism”, for allegedly supporting the Al Qaeda network.

In recent developments, what is unfolding is an integrated attack plan on Iran led by the US, with the participation of the United Kingdom and Israel.

The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the World simultaneously.

Militarization at the global level is instrumented through the US military’s Unified Command structure: the entire planet is divided up into geographic Combatant Commands under the control of the Pentagon.

The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. According to (former) NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, the Pentagon’s military road-map consists of a sequence of war theaters : “[The] five-year campaign plan [includes]… a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.”

What this collection of essays demonstrates is that Western intervention in this pivotal world region is far from the benign rhetoric frequently spouted in Washington, London, Paris and Berlin, espousing universal human rights and democratic freedoms. Rather, we are witnessing a neo-imperialist intervention that is self-serving, expedient and ultimately setting the world on a path of incalculable destruction.

Libyan war was a False Flag, There was no Revolution


Libyan war was a False Flag, There was no Revolution

by JoanneM

The below article by Dr. Corsi outlines the lies and how the illegal war that was waged against Libya EVEN after Ghadafi offered to step down, Obama and Clinton went ahead with the destruction of a peaceful, sovereign nation. Clinton and Obama are War Criminals, this has now been proven by the Pentagon tapes and testimony of Generals and Admirals.

Admirals, generals: Pentagon tapes indict Hillary

Hillary Clinton and President Obama discuss the Libya crisis at White House press conference in 2012 – “photo below”

obamahillary

NEW YORK – Recordings of top Pentagon officials in 2011 strongly criticizing Hillary Clinton for leading a State Department “march to war” against Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi in 2011 and for working with the Muslim Brotherhood confirm the conclusions of the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, according to members who spoke to WND.

CCB members said the recordings revealed by the Washington Times provide additional evidence to support the group’s interim report concluding the Obama administration “changed sides” in Libya, rejecting an effort by Gadhafi to abdicate and choosing instead to arm al-Qaida-affiliated militia seeking to forcibly oust the dictator.

Last week, WND reported retired Adm. James Lyons’ conclusion the Obama administration could have ousted Gadhafi peacefully by accepting a deal brokered in March 2011 by retired Rear Adm. Chuck Kubic with AFRICOM in Germany.

“The release of the Pentagon secret tapes by the Washington Times today validates the CCB interim report that the Libyan war was totally unnecessary, since it now has been validated that Gadhafi was willing to abdicate and that he had no intention of causing a humanitarian crisis, as promoted by Hillary’s State Department,” said Lyons, a former four-star admiral who served as the commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific and a founding member of the CCB.

The CCB – comprised of 17 retired admirals and generals; former intelligence agents; active anti-terrorist experts; media specialists; and former congressmen – has been conducting its own investigation and working behind the scenes for the past year-and-a-half to ensure Congress uncovers the truth of what happened in Benghazi and holds people accountable.

“It is long past time that the Obama administration and especially his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton come clean about why they were so determined to turn on Gadhafi – our ally in the war against al-Qaida – and instead chose to arm and support al-Qaida militias fighting to overthrow him,” said Clare Lopez, a former career operations officer with the CIA and currently vice president for research at the Washington-based Center for Security Policy.

Lopez said it’s “critical to note that Gadhafi was actively engaged with Department of Defense officials to arrange discussions about his possible abdication and exile when that promising development was squashed by the Obama White House.”

“The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi has been asking ‘Why?’ for well over a year now,” she said. “It is time the American people and the families of those who fought and gave their lives at Benghazi in September 2012 were told why those brave Americans had to die at all, much less die alone with no effort made to save them.”

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, another CCB founding member, told WND in an email that the Washington Times disclosure puts additional pressure on Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to subpoena Clinton and other key Obama administration officials to testify soon in public before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

“Delays by Gowdy are unnecessary at this time,” Vallely insisted. “Gowdy can press forward now as he does have sufficient intelligence and documents to call all witnesses and issue subpoenas as necessary.”

“Additional delays will only give the obstructionists in the Obama White House, the State Department and the Democrats in Congress time to thwart the efforts of the select committee,” Vallely said. “Gowdy needs to call immediately former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Obama administration CIA Director General David Petraeus and former director of both the CIA and the Department of Defense Leon Panetta, as well as General Dempsey, the current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.”

Retired Air Force Gen. Thomas McInerney, also a founding member of the CCB, was equally disturbed over the content of the Pentagon recordings revealed by the Washington Times.

“It becomes obvious these Pentagon tapes reveal a starting point by the Obama administration to start switching sides by taking down Gadhafi when all informed analysts knew that Benghazi was the incubator for radical Islam in sending suicide bombers to Iraq to kill American troops,” McInerney said.

“Why the administration wanted to do this is bewildering, but the evidence continues to grow,” McInerney added, citing as evidence President Obama’s enthusiastic support for former President Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in his country, as well as the Obama administration determination to exchange five Muslim “high value targets” from Guantanamo for U.S. Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by Taliban-affiliated radicals in Afghanistan after he allegedly deserted his unit.

The disclosure of the Pentagon recordings also prompted CCB members to comment on the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood on the Obama administration.

“The war in Libya was a manufactured war produced in part by the influence the Muslim Brotherhood exerted on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with the Muslim Brotherhood penetrating her office through the influence of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s longtime deputy chief of staff, who transferred to the State Department to serve as Clinton’s aide,” Lopez added.

WND has reported extensively Abedin’s family origins in the Muslim Brotherhood and her work for a dozen years as an assistant editor for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs. The organization was founded by her late father and directed by her mother with the full backing of the Muslim World League, an Islamic organization in the Saudi holy city of Mecca founded by Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

“Remember that Huma Abedin’s family’s Saudi ‘godfather’ is Abdullah Omar Nasseef, the founder of Rabita Trust, an al-Qaida funding institution that was shut down after 9/11. These were the connections advising our secretary of state – it’s called an influence operation,” Lopez said.

Lopez said that also during that time, among the closest advisers to John Brennan, now head of the CIA, and Dennis McDonough, currently White House chief of staff, when they were on the National Security Council was the son of the Sudanese grand mufti, Imam Mohamed Magid, the president of the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Islamic Society of North America, ISNA.

ISNA was listed by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial, which convicted the organization and its leaders of funding the terrorist organization Hamas, Lopez noted.

Magid, imam at All Dulles Area Muslim Society, near Washington, D.C., is a member of the board of advisers to the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism working group.

Setting the Record Straight – Omar Al Hassi is a Terrorist


Setting the Record Straight – Omar Al Hassi is a Terrorist

by JoanneM

The ramblings of the mass media outlets about what is happening in Libya are just that – ramblings. The shades of gray that are put out as reality are meant to do nothing but confuse the world about the real truth of what has happened to and in Libya.

Lets start at the beginning, Libya did NOT have a revolution, it was a false flag operation set up by the US CIA to overthrow the stable Libyan government and to assassinate Moammer Ghadafi. In order to overthrow Libya the CIA had to enlist Libyans that were against the Ghadafi government. These Libyans were in the great MINORITY, perhaps 5% of the population at the most. Most of these Libyans were living in exile because they were radical Islamists and the Ghadafi government did not allow radical Islamists in Libya.

The truth is that Ghadafi had stepped down from power as was required by the US in the treaty that was signed in 2006 with Condoleeza Rice.

The Libyan people considered Ghadafi their “Brother Leader”, they had great respect and love for this man, which by the way is their RIGHT. In January 2011, the US Department of Defense proclaimed Ghadafi as their best ally in the war against terror. By a huge majority, some 90%+, the Libyan people are moderate Muslims, they do not like or respect radical Islamists and they would tell you that these people are rubbish and that they are not Muslims.

In order to break Libya, the CIA had to enlist huge numbers of mercenaries because they found few Libyans inside Libya who would join the fight to overthrow the government that was giving them a good life. The Libyans had free medical, free education, 44 cents a gallon gas, $47,000 gift upon marriage, $5000 gift for each child born, a new condo for 10% of your salary (after 20 years it was yours), store houses of free food if you were hungry or poor, women were free and were emancipated by Ghadafi in the 1970’s, Libya was the most progressive Islamic country in the world.

So, the CIA, joined hands with those Libyans that were radical Islamists and who wanted to turn Libyan into a Sharia state. Of course there were not enough radical Libyans to overthrow 90% of Libya so the CIA began to filter in hundreds of thousands of psychopathic Islamic terrorist paid mercenaries from all over the world. Many of these terrorists had been fighting American soldiers in Afghanistan one day and the next day they were being armed, funded and trained by the CIA and their black water mercenaries to help destroy the sovereign nation of Libya. Chris Stevens (x CIA) the now dead Ambassador to Libya was the chief gun runner to the Al Qaeda “so called” rebel mercenaries. Early in the NATO war, Obama signed an order sending the CIA into Libya to aid the “so called rebels”. It was not a secret to anyone that these rebels were radical Islamic jihadist mercenaries from all over the world. Early in 2011, Ghadafi stated that it was Al Qaeda that was infiltrating Libya fighting with the support of NATO and the US, it was public knowledge. But that did not stop Obama.

The rest is history, but suffice it to say, everything you read about Libya and Ghadafi was a lie intended to allow Clinton and Obama to blow up Libya, her people and assassinate their leader.

What is happening in Libya today? Well, lets start by saying that after NATO flew some 60,000 sorties, using depleted uranium and FAE (fuel air explosives), violating every international rule of engagement for war; Libya is in shambles, a failed state with over a trillion dollars worth of infrastructure destroyed. Obama brags about only spending 1 billion to blow up Libya, but the real cost is over many billions and that came out of the Libyan coffers that were in the FED bank accounts and were stolen from Libya. Of the 6.5 million total population before NATO, 500,000 were killed, over 2 million live in exile, 1 million are homeless, 2 million live in terror with no hope and 40,000 are illegally imprisoned with thousands already tortured to death. There is no rule of law now in Libya.

NATO and the US left behind all the radical Islamic psychopaths and had them set up a puppet government that represented about 5% of the Libyans. This government was not a democracy; it created no security and used armed gangs, now referred to as militias, to control and kill. This government stole Libya blind and left her people suffering. This my friends was the GNC – the General National Congress, Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton’s creation, made up of Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Ansar Al Sharia, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and any other fringe radical group made up of psychopathic terrorists.

As usual with these kind of vermin, they began to fight amongst themselves, they all wanted power, they all wanted control. In the end, they could not agree on anything and could not write a constitution as was a requirement by the west for their government. The GNC was formally disbanded in February of 2014 but stayed on temporarily until the election which took place in June of 2014. No matter how much these criminals threatened the Libyan people at gun point, those that could vote did and much to their anger, the radical Muslim Brotherhood and others were voted out of office. Of course the ploy that the GNC was for democracy was a lie and they were not about to stand for the Libyan people to have a voice or lose any of their power. As soon as the legitimately elected people came to Tripoli to be sworn in to the government they were all threatened at gun point, some of their homes were burned, families were kidnapped, etc. Consequently, these duly elected Libyans had to set up a new government in Tobruk, it was either that or die trying in Tripoli.

The world now, including the UN and the US have formally recognized the House of Representatives in Tobruk as the legitimate government in Libya. But that is not the end of the story.

The sorry pieces of trash in Tripoli refuse to leave and give Libya to the Libyan people. They maintain their control over Tripoli by force of terror. The world that was full of cries for the innocent Libyans under Ghadafi watches this horror in deafening silence. Even worse, the UN acts like they there are (2) governments that must meet and discuss reconciliation. Why should the Libyans who have suffered greatly under the hands of these tyrants ever negotiate with them? The Libyans will never ever allow this kind of trash to stay in their country and any person who has ever met a real Libyan would know that fact. Even still the US Ambassador to Libya, Deborah Jones, continues her support of the GNC and Misurata (home of Terrorist gangs known as Libya Dawn). The Great tribes of Libya will not meet with her because she is openly supporting the terrorism in their country. How is it that the US, who claims to promote democracy, refuses to accept the democratically elected government in Tobruk, all the while continuing to support and have dialogue with the non existent government of the GNC made up of radical Islamists that are hated by all the Libyan people?

Even worse the old puppet GNC is led by a man named Omar Al Hassi, himself a world renowned criminal terrorist. (see his photo below)

Omar Al Hassi along with Abdulhakem Belhaj, another “world renowned” terrorist and Al Qaeda leader, were the founders of the Islamic Armed Movement, better known as H.M.S. This man Al Hassi is a known terrorist and yet the UN and the US continue to speak with him like he deserves some kind of respect. This is the exact reason Libya is not stable and the huge majority of her people are in exile.

The shocking truth is that Obama supports this radical GNC gang and has offered them recognition as the legitimate government in Libya if they will take over the oil fields. To that end, the US is continuing to arm these radicals in Libya quietly in the background. The UN has an embargo against arms into Libya and yet the US willfully looks the other way while Qatar and Turkey fly in arms and mercenaries to the radical Islamists every week.

The legitimate Libyan army that is fighting to cleanse these radical Islamist gangs from their country is openly embargoed from receiving any aid or help from countries willing to step up and help stop the flow of these radical psychopaths. These countries know that Libya has training camps set up by the CIA to train ISIS and other radical groups. They know the good people of Libya need help to put an end to the radical rats nest now festering in Libya. This mess is effecting the entire world, it seems only Obama, Turkey and Qatar are supporting these illegal activities in Libya.

Is it any wonder why Libya is upside down?

The sad truth is that this is the way Obama and Clinton want Libya, they do not care a wig about the Libyan people, they care that Libya has huge resources and is the gateway to Africa, the 128+ mass graves now in Libya make no difference to them – it is just acceptable collateral damage.

Obama and his minions will learn that the Libyan people will never accept mercenaries and radical Islamic rubbish to rule their country, they will fight and they will win in the end. The fallacy of the Zionists criminals is that they do not understand an 8000 year old tribal system and the strength it infuses in its people. There are many countries in this world who are willing to step up and help Libya, many of them are her neighbors, they know the facts and their time of hiding in the shadows is coming to an end.

 

 

WHO WILL PAY THE DAMAGES DONE TO LIBYA? “NATO Leaders Guilty Under US Code of Providing Material Support to Terrorists”


NATO Leaders Guilty Under US Code of Providing Material Support to Terrorists

This article is by Tony Cartalucci posted in “Infowars” but before I post the article my question to the International community is WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THE DAMAGES DONE BY NATO LEADERS AND THE TREE SUPER POWERS WHICH IS FRANCE, UNITED KINGDOM AND U.S.A. KNOWN TO ALL LIBYANS AS F.U.K.U.S?

Will these countries PAY compensation for the DESTRUCTION OF A WHOLE LIBYAN NATION? Will these countries together with NATO be HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY THE ICC? Will these countries compensate the MOTHERS that lost their infants? The Genocide of BLACK LIBYANS BY THE THOUSANDS? Will these countries compensate for GENERATIONS TO COME FOR THE 60.000 SORTIES WITH DEPLETED URANIUM BOMBED IN OUR COUNTRY, YOU HAVE ONLY TO TAKE A LOOK AT IRAQ’S DEFORMED CHILDREN? Will these countries compensate LIBYA’S INFRASTRUCTURE WHICH WAS DESTROYED BY THEIR GREED TO TOPPLE THE JAMAHIRYA GOVERNMENT AND MURDER IN COLD BLOOD THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY? When Will these countries pay for all the terror they have brought to smaller nations just because we want to be INDEPENDENT FROM THE ROTHSCHILD’S BANKING SYSTEM AND FROM THE CORPORATIONS WHO WANT TO STEAL OUR RESOURCES?

Libyan Rebels Listed by US State Department as Terrorists

“Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).”-USC S 2339B. Providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations

In March 2011, the London Telegraph reported that Libya’s rebels had direct ties to Al Qaeda and that both leaders and fighters had spent time in both Iraq and Afghanistan combating US troops. The article titled, “Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links” featured Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, who had been captured by the US after fighting Americans in Afghanistan, returned to Libya, and released under a bargain for Hasidi and his Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) militants to abandon extremism and become productive members of society. Quite obviously, and with the US, UK, and NATO’s help, Hasidi and his men went back on this bargain and are now sowing murder and mayhem across Libya.

The New York Time more recently reported in an article titled, “Exiled Islamists Watch Rebellion Unfold at Home” that LIFG has “renounced Al Qaeda and are part of the mosaic of rebel fighters united under the umbrella of the Transitional National Council, the opposition leadership that the United States formally recognized as Libya’s legitimate government.” Of course, “renouncement” is exactly what these very same men did to be released from Qaddafi’s prisons in the first place before immediately taking up arms and laying waste to the nation. The New York Times also notes that exiled LIFG leader Abu Sohaib, currently being harbored in London, is unable to return to Libya because he and LIFG is a listed terrorist across the Middle East and throughout most of Europe, including the UK. His LIFG fighters are noted as having “combat experience in Iraq or Afghanistan,” and that they are part of the “social fabric of eastern Libya,” namely Benghazi, Tobruk, and Darnah in a region often referred to as Cyrenaica.

An apt summary of the report can be found at Tarpley.net. (click image to enlarge)

To get a clearer picture of just how much of the “social fabric of eastern Libya” these Al Qaeda LIFG fighters make up, a study from West Point US Military Academy indicates that this region produced more foreign fighters per capita found in Iraq than any other nation including Saudi Arabia. The vast majority of these fighters came from Darnah and Benghazi, the latter being the epicenter of the current Libyan rebellion. The report, explained in detail by geopolitical analyst Dr. Webster Tarpley, proves just how understated the New York Times article is in portraying these terrorists as “part of the social fabric of eastern Libya.” The facts prove quite clearly that terrorism is the social fabric of eastern Libya.

Just this week, the UK Independent provided its readership with a watered down headline that reads, “Rebel military chief says he was tortured by CIA.” The article indicates that the current rebel leader, Abdulhakim Belhaj (aka Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi) is in fact an LIFG founding member, with combat experience in Afghanistan against the Russians, omits that he was also involved in fighting US troops there in 2001, but does mention that he was held by the CIA, then the Libyan government before taking command of NATO-backed rebels in Libya. The Daily Beast reports in an article titled, “Libya’s Powerful Islamist Leader,” that Belhaj was in fact, face-to-face with Osama Bin Laden back in the 1980′s, and that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) is listed by both the U.S. State Department and the British Home Office as an international terrorist organization.

NATO Leaders Guilty Under US Code of Providing Material Support to Terrorists LIFGlisted

 

Image: A screenshot taken directly from the US State Department website showing the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) clearly listed as a foreign terrorist organization. This is important, as US Code prohibits providing material support to listed terrorist organizations. With revelations of Al Qaeda and LIFG fighters leading the Libyan rebellion with NATO-members’ full military, financial, and diplomatic support, attempts are being made to plea ignorance as to the true nature of the rebels. Listed below LIFG, is MEK, an Iraqi/Iranian group also being armed and supported by the US. (click on image to enlarge) ****(as we already know by the revelations of Clinton’s & Obama’s on Benghazigate scandal, the late Stevens was working with the leader of LIFG who is non other than Abdulhakim Belhaj together they moved arms – money – jihadists – sex slaves women and children from Libya to the border of Turkey – Syria were they were met by CIA people who then took over from there. I will let your imagination to make your own conclusions on who murdered the late Stevens it was not the Sharaia or Lifg they would not bite the hand that feeds them.)

With the corporate media’s help, Belhaj/al-Hasidi and his men are being portrayed as reformed terrorists despite the fact that they are still LIFG fighters and LIFG itself is still listed as an international terrorist organization. And while many will applaud the corporate media for coming forward with this information, it should be noted that Pepe Escobar first broke this story on Russia Today, and the US and British propaganda outlets have merely been forced to address the growing public awareness of who these “pro-democracy” rebels really are and what role the US and British governments have had in betraying their people by providing material support for men who literally killed US and UK troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan over the 10 year “War on Terror.”

According to US Code Section 2339A & 2339B, the leaders of NATO, along with the US, UK, and French governments, are clearly guilty of providing a listed terrorist organization with material support in the most egregious, overt case since the code was written. The staggering scale of training, arming, and providing air support for Libyan Islamic Fighting Group militants, listed by the US State Department itself as a terrorist organization, all done criminally under the guise of “international law” rubber stamped by the contrived UN and bolstered with support from the equally contrived International Criminal Court, may be partially why more people are unable to understand the scope of criminality involved in NATO’s intervention in Libya.

A similar situation exists within Iran, where another terrorist organization, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) are being covertly armed and aided in fighting the Iranian government. US policy makers are fully aware that organizations like LIFG and MEK have US blood on their hands. In fact, their only concern is how using such organizations will appear publicly and how such perceptions might threaten their agendas. In the Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution report, “Which Path to Persia?” we can see clearly the thought process that goes on behind supporting terrorist organizations. Brookings’ only concern is how to remove MEK terrorists from the US State Department list (listed just below LIFG) so they can be supported more overtly in a Libyan-style military intervention.

“Potential Ethnic Proxies,” page 117-118 (page 130-131 of the PDF): ”Perhaps the most prominent (and certainly the most controversial) opposition group that has attracted attention as a potential U.S. proxy is the NCRI (National Council of Resistance of Iran), the political movement established by the MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq). Critics believe the group to be undemocratic and unpopular, and indeed anti-American.

In contrast, the group’s champions contend that the movement’s long-standing opposition to the Iranian regime and record of successful attacks on and intelligence-gathering operations against the regime make it worthy of U.S. support. They also argue that the group is no longer anti-American and question the merit of earlier accusations. Raymond Tanter, one of the group’s supporters in the United States, contends that the MEK and the NCRI are allies for regime change in Tehran and also act as a useful proxy for gathering intelligence. The MEK’s greatest intelligence coup was the provision of intelligence in 2002 that led to the discovery of a secret site in Iran for enriching uranium.

Despite its defenders’ claims, the MEK remains on the U.S. government list of foreign terrorist organizations. In the 1970s, the group killed three U.S. officers and three civilian contractors in Iran. During the 1979-1980 hostage crisis, the group praised the decision to take America hostages and Elaine Sciolino reported that while group leaders publicly condemned the 9/11 attacks, within the group celebrations were widespread.

Undeniably, the group has conducted terrorist attacks–often excused by the MEK’s advocates because they are directed against the Iranian government. For example, in 1981, the group bombed the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party, which was then the clerical leadership’s main political organization, killing an estimated 70 senior officials. More recently, the group has claimed credit for over a dozen mortar attacks, assassinations, and other assaults on Iranian civilian and military targets between 1998 and 2001. At the very least, to work more closely with the group (at least in an overt manner), Washington would need to remove it from the list of foreign terrorist organizations.”

US policy makers, working directly for Wall Street and London corporate-financier interests, clearly have no qualms over using or supporting terrorism, with perception management being their only concern. We see this diabolical methodology, precisely articulated in “Which Path to Persia?” now being executed across Libya verbatim. It looks as if there was not enough time to get LIFG off various international lists of terrorist organizations as Brookings had hoped to do with MEK, and instead a concerted effort by the corporate-media and NATO members is being made to downplay the reality that the US, British, French and Qatari governments are openly sponsoring terrorism. Look for similar narratives as seen in Libya to be used in both Syria and Iran – with militant terrorists portrayed as hapless protesters being oppressed by a brutal government, before a full-scale military insurrection followed by a US led military intervention.

U.S. Allies Back ISIS Islamic Terrorists


U.S. Allies Back ISIS Islamic Terrorists

A German minister says that U.S. ally Qatar funds ISIS.

The Times of Israel reported Wednesday:

A Free Syrian Army commander, arrested last month by the Islamist militia Al-Nusra Front, told his captors he collaborated with Israel in return for medical and military support, in a video released this week.Read more: Syrian rebel commander says he collaborated with Israel.

In a video uploaded to YouTube Monday … Sharif As-Safouri, the commander of the Free Syrian Army’s Al-Haramein Battalion, admitted to having entered Israel five times to meet with Israeli officers who later provided him with Soviet anti-tank weapons and light arms. Safouri was abducted by the al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Nusra Front in the Quneitra area, near the Israeli border, on July 22.

“The [opposition] factions would receive support and send the injured in [to Israel] on condition that the Israeli fence area is secured. No person was allowed to come near the fence without prior coordination with Israel authorities,” Safouri said in the video.

In the edited confession video, in which Safouri seems physically unharmed, he says that at first he met with an Israeli officer named Ashraf at the border and was given an Israeli cellular phone. He later met with another officer named Younis and with the two men’s commander, Abu Daoud. In total, Safouri said he entered Israel five times for meetings that took place in Tiberias.

Following the meetings, Israel began providing Safouri and his men with “basic medical support and clothes” as well as weapons, which included 30 Russian [rifles], 10 RPG launchers with 47 rockets, and 48,000 5.56 millimeter bullets.

Also on Wednesday, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency – a 97-year old Jewish wire servicereported:

A senior employee of the Dutch Justice Ministry said the jihadist group ISIS was created by Zionists seeking to give Islam a bad reputation.

Yasmina Haifi, a project leader at the ministry’s National Cyber Security Center, made the assertion Wednesday on Twitter, the De Telegraaf daily reported.

“ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s part of a plan by Zionists who are deliberately trying to blacken Islam’s name,” wrote Haifi ….

In March, Haaretz reported:

The Syrian opposition is willing to give up claims to the Golan Heights in return for cash and Israeli military aid against President Bashar Assad, a top opposition official told Al Arab newspaper, according to a report in Al Alam.

The Western-backed militant groups want Israel to enforce a no-fly zone over parts of southern Syria to protect rebel bases from air strikes by Assad’s forces, according to the report.

World Net Daily reports that the U.S. trained Islamic jihadis – who would later join ISIS – in Jordan.

The Jerusalem Post reports that an ISIS fighter says that Turkey funds the terrorist group. Turkey is a member of NATO and – at least until very recently – a close U.S. ally.

A former high-level Al Qaeda commander has repeatedly alleged that ISIS works for the CIA.

In June, investment adviser Jim Willie alleged:

The [Isis] troops that are working there [in Syria and Iraq] are Langley [i.e. CIA] troops. They’re trained, funded, and armed by Langley.

What I’m hearing… the U.S. military – Pentagon regulars –  and you have to be careful when you refer to U.S. military anymore. What kind of U.S. military? Is it the Pentagon U.S. Army, or is it the Langley military, which has unmarked uniforms and 10′s of thousands of mercenaries?

They’re about to encounter each other in Iraq. The U.S. military Pentagon regulars evacuated Iraq, and what filled the vacuum was the Langley mercenaries, trained for Syria, that migrated South and announced their new agenda.

If and when the Pentagon regulars encounter the Langley mercenaries in Iraq, Obama’s going to get a house call, because U.S. military will be fighting U.S. military. Pentagon vs. Langley.

While we don’t know which – if any – of the above-described allegations are true, two things are certain:

Why would the U.S. and its allies back ISIS, when they are barbarian Islamic terrorists?  Well – assuming it’s true – oil and gas could be the explanation.

After all, there is evidence that the U.S. and her allies have wanted to break up the nations of Iraq and Syria for decades.  And ISIS has done so.

In any event – whether or not it’s true of ISIS – it’s well-documented that the U.S., Saudis and Israelis have been backing the world’s most dangerous and radical Muslim terrorists for decades. And see this.

And anyone who looks at the battle against ISIS as a religious war is being played.
