I saw a TV news report showing the weapons the revolutionaries use and I was shocked to know that those heroes’ real weapon is faith only because all their weapons are extremely old in a way you can’t imagine. Some of the weapons go back to the WWII , their air defense system is manual and so the least thing the rich Arab countries can do is to give some more advanced weapons. I am not even asking the NATO and the States now.
Yesterday was historical day in the League of Arab states as the Arab countries have backed up a Non fly zone over Libya and will started to talk with the Libyan TNC. I do not recall that the LAS in its history has backed a revolutionary movement against a despot !! Of course the move to open a dialogue means a recognition to the TNC especially with the decision of league earlier to suspend the official membership of Libya following with the resignation of the Libyan delegation as well. France and EU have recognized the TNC and next week Hilary Clinton will talk to the TNC when it comes to the region. “She will pay Egypt a visit as well”
Tahrir square or rather LAS HQ witnessed a protest from Egyptian and Libyan activists and protesters. The Egyptians are still organizing medical aid conveys as far I know.
Meanwhile Qaddafi’s troops are advancing in certain areas ,we do not feel good for this. The revolution is now considered a civil war which is untrue , Libyans are not fighting each other , the Libyans are fighting a bloody dictator for God sake who brought mercenaries !!
Speaking about LAS and mercenaries , I wonder what were the positions of Algeria and Syria officially from this !!? There are strong rumors that Al Assad’s regime and the generals of Algeria have sent their pilots to aid Qaddafi against the revolution for political reasons before financial reasons with no doubt. The rumor in Syria is enforced with a funeral of some pilot believed to be downed in Libya. The Syrians are extremely angry for this.
Qaddafi and his sons are for sure angry from the Arabs so it was not a big surprise to find Seif Al Islam saying “Toz Fi El Arab” or as in the nearest English translation “Screw the Arabs , their stations and their league”
In the end of the day we found out that Al Jazeera Cameraman Ali Hassan Al-Jaber was killed. The 56 years old Qatari cameraman and also documentary filmmaker was killed in ambush , he was shot twice. The Al Jazeera crew was ambushed in its way back to Benghazi after an assignment in some hot zone.
The attack is dangerous because it means that Qaddafi’s units are still there near Benghazi. It is worth to mention that the people of Benghazi made a hero funeral to Al-Jaber in his way to Qatar , they even encircled Al Jazeera office to protect it.
Here is a moment Al Jazeera announced the death of Al-Jabar.
Ali Al Dafiri read the news and was emotional “in fact he still is”. Al-Jabar is the first fallen Non-Libyan reporter to be killed in the revolution that turned in to a war of freedom. Strangely according to Al Jazeera’s director general Wadah Khanfar Al-Jabar was not assigned but he wanted to go. According to Al Jazeera correspondent at Benghazi for days they felt that they were being followed. This means that Benghazi still got Qaddafi spies. Through all day long the official Libyan TV kept attacking Al Jazeera.
The Guardian and Washington Post reporters are still missing and the CNN crew in West had its share from trouble with Qaddafi troops.
There are dangerous and alarming news about the Egyptians in Libya , there are reports coming that the madman is torturing and executing many Egyptians. According to the ministry of foreign affairs 172,830 Egyptians have been repatriated so far and came back home. We have already not less than 1,500,000 Egyptian there. More countries are kindly sending planes and ship to evacuate all Egyptians from Libya but according to the latest reports the number of those who are crossing borders to Tunisia is decreasing. There are fears that either Qaddafi’s troops are using the foreign expats whether Egyptians or Asians being used as human shields or as in our case rumors of torture and execution. “Qaddafi is a sick man , he could actually believe in his sick trouble delusional mind that Egyptians and Tunisians are behind this revolution.
There are strong rumors that the Egyptian army will interfere in any way or another , already it is now beyond the Mirror because we got news from UPS “what is this provoking sentence from Stratfor say about Libya’s wealth and how Egypt sees it as a target !!? Is this Stratfor or Seif Al Islam Qaddaf !!? “ and also from inside Egypt. I will speculate anything because the fact that the Egyptian army is on alert is not a new thing , the army has been on alert since January 28th. Of course if the madman started a genocide against our Egyptian expats the Egyptian army will have to act in a way or another.
If you think about it the NATO and the States are thinking twice before engaging in any military action considering the costs and also the fact that the Arab people and Libyan people in particular will not welcome any Western military intervention especially now , thus the best option is to let the Arabs and Libyans solve it themselves. Egyptian army is the strongest in North Africa and it is the nearest too , right next door so yeah just think about. We do not want to be stuck in another Yemen so I hope our commanders to know what they are doing especially in this very critical time.
I hope that the AFC takes more official steps like for instance ordering the Nile sat to stop airing the Qaddafi official TV and radio channels on Nile Sat and at least help the TNC to get an official TV Channel. The Qaddafi’s intelligence in Tripoli has technically f*cked up our Nile Sat with all these channels that have been jammed !! You got Al Jazeera bouquet , Al Arabiya and MBC bouquet , Al Hurra bouquet including lousy Mehawr. “Oh yes I have not seen that NDP channel for weeks now and I feel more than great , I can live without it”
