US blocks Russia's draft statement in UN on peaceful resolution of Bani Walid violence — RT #Libya #UN #Alqaeda | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"The United States has blocked a draft statement, proposed by Russia, on the resolution of violence in the Libyan town of Bani Walid, which has been under siege for weeks. The statement called for a peaceful solution to the conflict.
Russia’s envoy to the UN, Vitaly Churkin said the move “can't be serious,” reminding the American delegation of the deadly attack in Benghazi that claimed the lives of four US diplomats in September.
“Blocking a draft statement that called to solve the country’s political problems without violence is very strange,” Churkin said. “This is a case when it is difficult to explain the US delegation’s actions in rational terms.”
The statement drafted by Russia on Bani Walid called on the Libyan authorities “to take urgent steps to resolve the conflict by peaceful means and to preserve the rights of all Libyan citizens.” It also expressed concern about the significant escalation of violence in and around the city of Bani Walid in recent days.

UNSMIL - United Nations Support Mission in Libya.

" New York, 21 October 2012 - The Secretary-General is alarmed by the fighting in and around the Libyan city of Bani Walid, and in particular the reports indicating growing civilian casualties due to indiscriminate shelling.

The Secretary-General reminds all parties of their obligations under international humanitarian law and calls on all the Libyan authorities and those in Bani Walid to begin immediately a process to resolve the Bani Walid stand-off peacefully.

The Secretary-General is of the firm conviction that the Libyan authorities must be able to extend Libyan sovereignty and state control and services throughout the territory of Libya. In their historic July elections, the Libyan people put their trust in the Libyan state, and the Secretary-General urges all Libyans to work together to strengthen the legitimacy and effectiveness of state institutions across the country.

While the nato junta in Libya are reeling and shocked by the defiance and strength of the resistance, they and their nato masters have been putting out quite pathetic psychological white-ops reports of the supposed capture of Moussa Ibrahim, former Jamahirya press spokesperson, and Khamis Gaddafi, who has been reported captured and killed innumerable times.

How US Ambassador Chris Stevens May Have Been Linked To Jihadist Rebels In Syria #Libya #US #UN #Stevens #Obama

How US Ambassador Chris Stevens May Have Been Linked To Jihadist Rebels In Syria #Libya #US #UN #Stevens #Obama | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"The official position is that the US has refused to allow heavy weapons into Syria.
But there's growing evidence that U.S. agents—particularly murdered ambassador Chris Stevens—were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to jihadist Syrian rebels.
In March 2011 Stevens became the official U.S. liaison to the al-Qaeda-linked Libyan opposition, working directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group—a group that has now disbanded, with some fighters reportedly participating in the attack that took Stevens' life.
In November 2011 The Telegraph reported that Belhadj, acting as head of the Tripoli Military Council, "met with Free Syrian Army [FSA] leaders in Istanbul and on the border with Turkey" in an effort by the new Libyan government to provide money and weapons to the growing insurgency in Syria.
Last month The Times of London reported that a Libyan ship "carrying the largest consignment of weapons for Syria … has docked in Turkey." The shipment reportedly weighed 400 tons and included SA-7 surface-to-air anti-craft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades.
Those heavy weapons are most likely from Muammar Gaddafi's stock of about 20,000 portable heat-seeking missiles—the bulk of them SA-7s—that the Libyan leader obtained from the former Eastern bloc.

Confusion rife as Libyan army storms town of Bani Walid #Libya #Banialide #Misrata #Alqaeda #GNC #HumanRights

Confusion rife as Libyan army storms town of Bani Walid #Libya #Banialide #Misrata #Alqaeda #GNC #HumanRights | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Libyan army units have launched a full-scale assault against the town of Bani Walid, accusing it of being controlled by supporters of the former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Fierce fighting has raged in the town for two days, with the army reporting 44 wounded and five dead. There are no reliable casualty figures from inside Bani Walid itself.

"We started to enter Bani Walid, we are not far away from the centre," said army spokesman Mohammed al-Gandus. "There was a big battle between Bani Walid people and our army."

Army commanders on Thursday night portrayed the fighting as the final battle against Gaddafi hardliners, who they say have made the town their home, fearing arrest and execution if they are captured.

"A lot of people who supported Gaddafi are hiding now in Bani Walid. We have a list of names," said Gandus. "They are fighting very well because they know they are going to die soon."

There were conflicting claims about the battle last night, with army units claiming to have captured the airport and main hospital, leaving defending forces controlling only the town centre.

"The airport has been captured and we are fighting around a large porcelain factory," said Gandus. (...)

Land Destroyer: Dead US Ambassador Documented Creation of Benghazi Terror Emirate #Libya #Stevens #UN #US #QATAR | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Late US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens documented the transformation of Benghazi, Libya into overt base of operations for Al Qaeda.
by Tony Cartalucci
"I have met with these brave fighters, and they are not Al-Qaeda. To the contrary: They are Libyan patriots who want to liberate their nation. We should help them do it." - Senator John McCain in Benghazi, Libya April 22, 2011.

October 20, 2012 - The Washington Times, in an article titled, "Ambassador Stevens warned of Islamic extremism before Benghazi attack," reported:
Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, in a diplomatic cable from Libya last June, cited the apparent rise of “Islamic extremism” and the spotting of “the Al Qaeda flag” over buildings outside the city of Benghazi, where he and three other Americans were ultimately killed in an attack on Sept. 11.
The Washington Times would quote Stevens as writing:
"A number of local contacts agreed, noting that Islamic extremism appears to be on the rise in eastern Libya and that the Al Qaeda flag has been spotted several times flying over government buildings and training facilities” in a small Libyan city about 100 miles east of Benghazi."

While all of this is depicted by the Western media as a recent revelation made only after the death of Ambassador Stevens, journalists around the world had documented and warned of the dangers of arming "pro-democracy protesters" who were clearly militant extremists, actively carrying out terrorism for at least three decades in the Cyrenaica (eastern Libya) region. These warning came just as NATO bombs began to fall on Libya in 2011, and were reiterated many times before the bombing concluded. (...) "

Libia: caos total a un año del asesinato de Muammar Al Gaddafi ~ WEBGUERRILLERO | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

" La inestabilidad política y social se extiende como un reguero de pólvora en Libia. Poco queda de las promesas realizadas por el Consejo Nacional de Transición (CNT), que el 20 de octubre del año pasado asesinó al líder Muammar Al Gaddafi, con el apoyo militar de la Organización del Tratado para el Atlántico Norte (Otan), que durante ocho meses bombardeó de forma masiva el país del norte de África.
La crisis en Libia se profundizó todavía más con el asesinato del embajador estadounidense, Chris Stevens, durante un ataque armado al consulado norteamericano en la ciudad de Bengasi sobre el cual han quedado muchas dudas.
Con la muerte del diplomático, que fue uno de los principales impulsores de los grupos mercenarios que derrocaron a Gaddafi, los enfrentamientos se potenciaron en varias ciudades libias, mostrando que la supuesta paz prometida por el CNT está muy lejos de llegar. (...) "
