Gaddafi forces accused of massacre as battles rage
In an interview with Le Journal du Dimanche published Sunday, Libya's leader for 42 years Muammer Gaddafi said that he was embroiled in a fight against Islamist terrorism and expressed dismay at the absence of support from abroad.
"I am surprised that nobody understands that this is a fight against terrorism," Gaddafi told le Journal du Dimanche.
"Our security services cooperate. We have helped you a lot these past few years. So why is it that when we are in a fight against terrorism here in Libya no one helps us in return?"
Western leaders have denounced what they call Gaddafi's brutal response to the uprising, and the International Criminal Court said he and his inner circle face investigation for alleged targeting of civilians by his security forces.
Gaddafi said Islamic holy war would engulf the Mediterranean if the insurrection in Libya, inspired by revolts that toppled despots in nearby Egypt and Tunisia, succeeded.
"There would be Islamic jihad in front of you, in the Mediterranean," he said. "(Osama) bin Laden's people would come to impose ransoms on land and sea. We will go back to the time of Red Beard, of pirates, Ottomans imposing ransoms on boats."
Gaddafi added that his government was "doing well" despite the turmoil and warned Europe against an influx of Libyan migrants to its shores if his foes drove him from power.
In comments to British newspaper The Sunday Times, Gaddafi repeated that he had no intention of going into exile.
"Does anybody leave his own homeland? Why should I leave Libya?", he said, laughing.
He also denied that his forces had bombed civilian areas.

Gaddafi, formerly public enemy #1 in the '80s, when he sponsored international terrorism and advised the west to convert to Islam, now finds himself supplanted by a new generation of fanatics.
File that under the heading, “It takes one to know one.”
From this can we infer that the "statute of limitations" has run out for Castro; else he, too, by the same criteria, would be facing a similar investigation?
If the fight in Libya is against radical islam, then I have to say I support Gaddafi.
I wonder when he will figure out he has to attack the source of all this mischief, their mosque garrisons? Feature him admitting and bombing the root of the problem, the Mosques.../s
Terror today springs from the White House, and the imam there.
THE most powerful muslim in the world sits in the presidents chair....joy...huh?
Worst part is he is consolidating their efforts, to our demise.
I agree with you.
Barach Hussein Obama said nothing at all when the Basij were slaughtering less jihadist oriented Iranian dissidents recently, but actively supports the the more jihadist Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt, and now this more Islamic putsch in Libya. Saudi Arabia and other *relatively* quiet Arab regimes are being undermined as well, just as the union and UN useful idiots provide distractions here.
Lest we forget our own not insignificant Fifth Column:
I can think of at least two reasons.
Taken from shariah4america:
The White Masjid
Have you ever wondered what America would look like under Shariah? The ongoing campaign to bring the US and indeed the entire world under the authority of Islam has compelled sincere Muslims to draw up realistic plans for changes that are likely to occur once all obstacles in the way of implementing the Shariah are removed.
One of the primary targets for immediate reconstruction in the US is the White House; originally designed by Irish architect James Hoban, this building holds significant symbolic value in representing centuries of repression under man-made law.
Unlike the British burning of Washington, one of the practical proposals for the redevelopment of the White House under Islam will be to see it converted into a flourishing mosque.
Mosques or Masjids are taken to be one of the most important buildings in Islam, acting as places of (Islamic) worship, centres of learning, places where the ill are treated and even locations where crucial decisions are made regarding domestic and international government policies; mosques also act as an opportunity for non-Muslims to learn more about Islam and even embrace this superior way of life.
With the absence of the Shariah worldwide, mosques are unfortunately a far cry from their glorious past, and hence the conversion of the White House into one will undoubtedly help restore the iconic status that this building has in the Shariah.
