Washington’s Al Qaeda Ally Now Leading ISIS in Libya | #Libya #AlqAEDA #ISIS #Gaddafi #Saif

Washington’s Al Qaeda Ally Now Leading ISIS in Libya | #Libya #AlqAEDA #ISIS #Gaddafi #Saif | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
The revelations that US ally Abdelhakim Belhadj is now leading ISIS in Libya should come as no surprise to those who have followed US policy in that country, and throughout the region. It illustrates for the umpteenth time that Washington has provided aid and comfort to precisely those forces it claims to be fighting around the world.

According to recent reports, Abdelhakim Belhadj has now firmly ensconced himself as the organizational commander of the ISIS presence inside Libya. The information comes from an unnamed US intelligence official who has confirmed that Belhadj is supporting and coordinating the efforts of the ISIS training centers in eastern Libya around the city of Derna, an area long known as a hotbed of jihadi militancy.

While it may not seem to be a major story – Al Qaeda terrorist turns ISIS commander – the reality is that since 2011 the US and its NATO allies have held up Belhadj as a “freedom fighter.” They portrayed him as a man who courageously led his fellow freedom-lovers against the “tyrannical despot” Gaddafi whose security forces at one time captured and imprisoned many members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), including Belhadj.

The Horrors of Wall Street’s ‘New Libya’ | New Eastern Outlook

The Horrors of Wall Street’s ‘New Libya’ | New Eastern Outlook | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
The world, including the US press, is looking on in horror at recent events in Libya. Libya is now a center of human trafficking, with human beings packed into ships bound for Europe. Libyans are so desperate to escape their country, now wrecked with civil war and astounding levels of poverty, they are risking their lives. Ships filled with desperate human beings have crashed, and a number of corpses have washed up on Libya’s beaches.

Furthermore, the Islamic State organization, which has been terrorizing and murdering people in Iraq and Syria, is moving into action on the African continent. Libyan Christians are being executed by ISIS fighters.

400,000 people in Libya are declared by Human Rights Watch to be “internally displaced.” In 2014 alone, over 250 journalists, religious and political leaders, and judges have been assassinated.

In Yemen, and Middle East, U.S. Needs to Learn When to Quit

In Yemen, and Middle East, U.S. Needs to Learn When to Quit | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Six years before the Arab Spring, a group of rural highlanders in Yemen called the Houthis rose up against an autocratic government and its foreign patrons to demand their rights.

Fast forward to 2015, and the Houthis are still fighting to redress their domestic grievances, but within a much-altered region where geopolitical rivalries between two global axes have come to a dangerous boil.

While the American instinct may be to back up its Gulf allies, Washington would be a lot wiser to rein in Saudi involvement in this civil war.

Last week, the Saudi-led coalition of mainly Gulf Cooperation Council states and other monarchies launched airstrikes against Yemen in an aggressive bid to maintain their primacy in this fast-changing Middle East. But they cannot expect to achiev
