I heard recently that there were Jewish people living in Libya. I decided to search for stories using a google news search "libya jewish".

stopped using google a long time ago when they REFUSED to show results that Jerusalem as Israel’s and refused to show results that showed land that belogned to the Jews after the treaty- they only showed results which claimed it belogned to palestinians- as well their ‘results’ pages were very anti semetic- Just another typical liberal big business
