    Asharq Al-Awsat ^ | February 19, 2018 | Abdul Sattar Hatita
    As part of its exclusive series on Libya during the rule of late leader Moammar al-Gaddafi, Asharq Al-Awsat examines the regime’s ties with local and foreign powers, including its attempts to finance western presidential campaigns, particularly in France, the United States and Ukraine. Witnesses from the former regime said that Tripoli had spent some 50 million euros in 2007 to fund the campaign of French presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy. Lebanese businessman Ziad Takeieddine, who was present at Sarkozy’s meetings with Gaddafi revealed that the “figures were much higher than that.” Tripoli also pumped 5 million dollars in the presidential campaign...

    I like to wait for the dust to clear before opining on events.  Not everyone does. The bodies of the victims of the Parkland shooting weren't cold before democrats clawed their way to the front of TV cameras. A nice touch. Of course, obama had to be heard. Left wing news outlets leaped at the report that Cruz was a member of a white nationalist group. https://twitter.com/Salon/status/964268928066351104Time: Accused Parkland Shooter Nikolas Cruz Was a Member of white supremacist group Republic of Florida. Just one problem. He is not a member of the Republic of Florida. Local law enforcement sources have...

    With each passing week, those who are paying attention are becoming increasingly aware of the trouble that is brewing on Israel's northern border. With the recent escalation with Syria, in which an Israel F-16 was shot down and Israel responded by taking out 8 Syrian and 4 Iranian positions just 32 miles to her north, plus the increasing pressure on Israel from Turkey, Vatican City and those who would delight in seeing the Jewish people wiped from the face of the earth. Now would be a very good time to check your vertical alignment. Events heralding the soon return of...

    Republican Rep. Jim Jordan accused key Clinton allies of helping craft a second anti-Trump dossier and accused them of “rigging the game,” Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.” Jordan was asked about a possible second dossier and said Clinton operatives Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer had paid Christopher Steele to do opposition research, but then told Steele which specific details to include. “The names we keep hearing are Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer — people who have been around the Clintons as being a part of this. But I also think it’s kind of interesting because what it looks like is,...

    The time for pious American lectures is over. North Korea North Korea seeks respect on the cheap — and attention and cash — that it cannot win the old-fashioned way by the long, hard work of achieving a dynamic economy or an influential culture. Over the last quarter-century, it has proved that feigned madness and the road to nuclear weapons (Pakistan is another good example) provide a shortcut to all three goals: It is now feared, in the news, and likely to receive another round of Western danegeld. Setting off a bomb (as opposed to merely bragging that it soon...
  • WATCH: African migrants tortured, auctioned by human traffickers in Libya

    A video showing migrants being tortured by human traffickers in Libya went viral on social media following a report by CNN showing footage of migrants being sold as slaves there. The last two scenes of the video shows migrants being subjected to unprecedented torture and brutality. A migrant who was completely stripped of his clothes cries out in pain as the trafficker burns a plastic bottle and drips hot plastic on his body. The migrants body shows several scars and burns. Another stands on his head using insulting language telling him to look up at the camera. The second video...

    Libya today is far from what it was under Colonel Ghaddaffi. In those days it was a strong sovereign state with ample wealth derived from oil. . . . Failed government policies in many sub-Saharan countries have led to great poverty for the masses and a sense on hopelessness in the youth. . . Is it any surprise that black Africans are being enslaved and sold in Libya and elsewhere in the Arab worls? Under the Jammeh regime women especially were being taken to Kuwait or one of the other Arab states and sold into semi-slavery. Freedom publicized a few...

    Utterly destroying and eradicating radical Islamic terrorists has always been a top priority for President Donald Trump, and it appears another country feels the same way. Cockpit footage from the Libyan Air Force Dassault Mirage F1 fighter jet shows a slew of massive missile strikes on terrorists near the port city of Sirte. The three and a half minute cockpit footage begins with the aircraft flying over a beautiful beach. Things got bad for a group of Islamic State terrorists who were positioned alongside the shore. To be more specific, fighter jet blew the terrorists to smithereens.

    Strategic Culture ^ | 12-24-2017 | Finian Cunningham
    Fighting terrorism is now morphing into clamping down on human migration, as far as the European Union is concerned. France’s President Emmanuel Macron is leading the charge, claiming at a conference in Paris last week that terrorism and human trafficking are part of the same problem, requiring the deployment of a military force spread across Africa. The melding of the two concepts provokes serious legal and moral questions. But so desperate, it seems, is the EU to halt illegal migration into the bloc that it is moving to militarize the problem in Africa – under the guise of “fighting terrorism”....

    British diplomat Rebecca Dykes, working at the UK embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, was found dead along the side of a road early Saturday morning. Authorities are saying Dykes was murdered after finding her dead body tossed to the side of a major roadway over the weekend.

Forensics suggests she died at 4:00 am Saturday morning. British ambassador Hugo Shorter issued the following statement.  The whole embassy is deeply shocked, saddened by this news. My thoughts...

    The former top IT official to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, pleaded the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination — 90 times — in a federal court-ordered deposition on Oct. 24. John Bentel, the former Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat, the office that handles information technology for the Office of the Secretary of State, was ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to answer questions under oath to the lawyers at the government watchdog group Judicial Watch. In his Aug. 19 order, Judge Sullivan wrote, “The Court is persuaded that Mr. Bentel should be deposed because...

    On Thursday United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres sent the Security Council a letter nominating as the new head of the UN's mission to Libya a former prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, Salam Fayyad -- who was described in the letter as "Salam Fayyad (Palestine)." America's new ambassador, Nikki Haley, said no. Having thus blocked Fayyad's appointment, Haley then put out a statement explaining why: For too long the UN has been unfairly biased in favor of the Palestinian Authority to the detriment of our allies in Israel. The United States does not currently recognize a Palestinian state or support...

    The Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to fully enforce a ban on travel to the United States by residents of six mostly Muslim countries. The justices, with two dissenting votes, said Monday that the policy can take full effect even as legal challenges against it make their way through the courts. The action suggests the high court could uphold the latest version of the ban that Trump announced in September. The ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. Lower courts had said people from those nations with a claim of a “bona fide”...

    Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara called Wednesday for "all urgent measures" to end migrant slave trading in Libya as he opened an Europe-Africa summit meant to focus on long-term economic growth and stability. The slavery revelations are casting a shadow over the Abidjan summit, which both sides hope will launch a deeper partnership to create jobs for Africa's exploding population while reducing mass migration and terrorism. "Given this wretched drama which recalls the worst hours of human history, I would like to appeal to our sense of responsibility to take all urgent measures to put an end to that practice...

    A federal jury on Tuesday convicted Libyan terrorist Ahmed Abu Khattala on terrorism charges related to the 2012 attacks on U.S. government facilities in Benghazi, but acquitted him of murder, the most serious charge he faced, reported The Hill. Abu Khattala, 46, was convicted on four counts, including conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. At the same time, he was also acquitted of 14 other charges. He faces up to 60 years in prison. Abu Khattala, a leader of the terrorist organization Ansar al-Sharia, was captured by American forces in Libya in June of 2014, and has previously denied...

    Monday, November 27, 2017 How Obama Brought Back Muslim Enslavement of Black People Posted by Daniel Greenfield America’s first black president didn’t bring “Hope” to America, but he did bring slave auctions to Africa. After Obama “liberated” Libya for the Islamist rebels, Arab Muslims sell black slaves for a few hundred dollars at slave auctions. While leftists tear down the statues of slave owners from centuries ago, it was the left that brought back the sale of black men as property. Slavery was always one of Barack Obama’s favorite subjects. It was a favorite subject because it provided him with...

    The removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored, says Tom Gross It is not surprising, given the sheer scale of the Holocaust and its sadism, that it has dominated contemporary discourse among Jews and others. But, while the extermination of European Jews has rightfully (though belatedly) generated a great deal of study and research, the removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored. This ignorance extends to policy-makers at the highest level. Some journalists and politicians I have spoken to have expressed surprise when I even mentioned that Jews...
