Libyan rebels celebrate at a checkpoint after a deal is made with the elders of Bani Walid

July 5, 2012

Nearly three million Libyans have registered to vote in the country’s first multi-party election in 60 years, set for Saturday.  They will choose among 1400 candidates for a 200-seat National Assembly that will form a temporary government and draft a constitution, leading to another election next year.

Nine months ago, Libyans were celebrating in a square in central Tripoli. They renamed it Martyrs’ Square, in memory of the fighters who died in the revolution that ended 42 years of rule by Moammar Gadhafi.

Today, the square is busy with traffic and decorated with campaign posters for Saturday’s election.

Tripoli cafes are buzzing about the election.  Student Amin Siyala is home for the summer from school in Britain.

“Stuff hasn’t become suddenly a lot better. That’s just truth right now. But obviously we know it will get better because there still needs to be time for the elections to happen and for a new government to come and bring change,” Siyala said.

Not far away, at a more traditional cafe next to a Roman ruin, several older men also want to talk politics. Mohammed al-Hadi bin-Noba says many Libyans don’t really understand what they are voting for. But he says in a way that doesn’t matter. “The election is of secondary importance compared with the blood that has been spilled to make the revolution a success,” he said.

There are still concerns about security, amid tribal clashes, fighting among militias formed for the revolution, and regional disputes about power sharing. An Amnesty International report this week says those problems must be brought under control.

British analyst Anthony Skinner, at the Maplecroft risk assessment firm, shares the concern, but he told VOA via Skype the overall trajectory in Libya is positive.

“It’s inevitable that these various groups will want to ensure that their interests are protected. And they will continue to jockey for power. And unfortunately because of the level of armament and because the various militias have not been absorbed into the military, this will translate into further gun battles, I expect,” Skinner said.

But the problems are far from the minds of this family having a day out in Tripoli.

Dr. Mohammed Reda Mangoos and his wife Naima Al-Taher are excited about the vote, and the doctor remembers Libya’s last free election in 1952. “That day, I was about six years old. I still remember, like a dream. There was voting in my city. I still remember, like a dream. Now, we are proud to see this again,” Mangoos said.

“It’s enough for us that we see all the posters of the candidates all around, colors and faces from all kinds of personalities. It used to be just one picture of one man filled the whole area. You didn’t see anyone but Gadhafi,” Al-Taher said.

There are more than 140 parties and small factions campaigning for the election, and hundreds of independent candidates. Islamists are expected to do well, as is a secular group of officials who were involved in last year’s transition. But Libyans from all walks of life say the country will plot a moderate course regardless of who is elected.

October 31, 2011

Libya’s provisional leaders named an engineer as its new prime minister Monday, taking the first step toward assembling a new transitional government after the killing of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi and the formal end to the uprising that ended his nearly 42 years in power.

Libya’s Transitional National Council said Monday that its members voted to name as prime minister Abdel Rahim el-Keeb, whom officials described as an electronics engineer and Qaddafi critic who spent most of his career abroad. For the purposes of Libyan politics, however, Mr. Keeb is considered a resident of the western city of Tripoli, the capital, offering regional balance to the interim president, Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, who is from the east.

Mr. Keeb did not play any conspicuous role in the revolt against Colonel Qaddafi, but leaders of the revolt from Tripoli, the Western mountains and the coastal city of Misurata cheered his selection. He succeeds Mahmoud Jibril, who announced his resignation after the capture of Tripoli. Anti-Qaddafi forces from Misurata had led a drive to oust Mr. Jibril, in part because he had worked for about five years as head of an economic development office under Mr. Qaddafi.

Mr. Keeb “starts with a clean slate,” said Mohamed Benrasali, a spokesman for the local council governing Misurata. “He will not be troubled by his past, unlike Mr. Jibril.”

Under a “constitutional declaration” issued by the Transitional National Council, Mr. Keeb is expected to form a cabinet that will run the government until the election of a national assembly in about eight months. He was named on the same day that NATO’s general secretary, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, visited Tripoli to mark the last day of the organization’s mission here, which formally ended Monday at midnight. “We acted to protect you,” Mr. Rasmussen said in speech at the Rixos Hotel, once the hub of Colonel Qaddafi’s propaganda machine. “Together we succeeded. Libya is finally free.”

File:Mustafa Abdul Jalil.jpg

Sunday October 23, 2011     1:35 PM

Libya’s transitional leader declared his country’s liberation Sunday after an 8-month civil war and set out plans for the future with an Islamist tone. The announcement was clouded, however, by international pressure to explain how ousted dictator Moammar Gadhafi had been captured alive days earlier, then ended up dead from a gunshot to his head shortly afterward.

Gadhafi’s death in circumstances that are still unclear, and the gruesome spectacle of his body laid out as a trophy in a commercial freezer and on public view, are testing the new Libyan leaders’ commitment to the rule of law. Even at the ceremony to declare liberation, two speakers in positions of authority essentially said Gadhafi got what he deserved.

But transitional government leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, who made the keynote speech, did not mention the events surrounding Gadhafi’s end and called on his people to eschew hatred.

“You should only embrace honesty, patience, and mercy,” Abdul-Jalil told the crowd at the declaration ceremony in the eastern city of Benghazi, the birthplace of the uprising against Gadhafi. He urged Libyans to reconcile their differences.

And he laid out a vision for the post-Gadhafi future with an Islamist tint, saying Islamic Sharia law would be the “basic source” of legislation and existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified. In a gesture that showed his own piety, he urged Libyans not to express their joy by firing guns in the air, but rather to chant “Allahu Akbar,” or God is Great. He then stepped aside from the podium and knelt to offer a brief prayer of thanks.

Using Sharia as the main source of legislation is stipulated in the constitution of neighboring Egypt. Still, Egyptian laws remain largely secular as Sharia does not cover all aspects of modern day life.

The uprising against Gadhafi erupted in February as part of anti-government revolts spreading across the Middle East. Neighboring Tunisia, which put the so-called Arab Spring in motion with mass protests nearly a year ago, has taken the biggest step on the path to democracy, voting for a new assembly Sunday in its first truly free elections. Egypt, which has struggled with continued unrest, is next with parliamentary elections slated for November.

Libya’s struggle has been the bloodiest so far in the region. Mass protests quickly turned into a civil war that killed thousands and paralyzed the country for the past eight months. Gadhafi’s hometown of Sirte was the last loyalist stronghold to fall last week, but Gadhafi’s son and one-time heir apparent, Seif al-Islam, apparently escaped with some of his supporters.

Abdul-Jalil paid tribute to the Gulf Cooperation Council, a six-nation alliance led by Saudi Arabia, the Arab League and the European Union. NATO, which aided the anti-Gadhafi fighters with airstrikes, performed its task with “efficiency and professionalism,” he added.

President Barack Obama congratulated Libyans on the declaration.

“After four decades of brutal dictatorship and eight months of deadly conflict, the Libyan people can now celebrate their freedom and the beginning of a new era of promise,” he said.

People stand in line to see the body of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in Misrata.

Oct 22, 2011     7:43 AM ET

Libya’s interim rulers say they will declare the liberation of Libya on Sunday, three days after deposed dictator Moammar Gadhafi was killed.

Officials from the governing National Transitional Council (NTC) said the announcement would be made in the eastern city of Benghazi, the revolution’s birthplace, a day later than originally planned. No reason was given for the 24-hour delay.

In a separate development, interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said Libyans should be allowed to vote within eight months to elect a national council that would draft a new constitution and form an interim government.

Jibril made that announcement Saturday as he attended the World Economic Forum in Jordan. He also said he expects to step down on Saturday, reiterating a promise he made earlier in the month.

Meanwhile, the BBC reported an NTC official as saying Saturday that Gadhafi’s body has undergone a post-mortem examination and will be handed over to his surviving family. However, Al Jazeera reported NTC officials as saying earlier that no autopsy would be needed, despite questions still swirling around official accounts of his death.

The UN human rights office says it’s concerned he was summarily executed after his capture Thursday on the outskirts of his hometown Sirte, two months after he was driven from power and into hiding.

In one cellphone video recording the chaos that followed Gadhafi’s capture, he is seen wiping blood away from his head. There seems to be no wound in that video. In a second video, there is a bullet wound in the same spot on his head, raising speculation he was shot execution-style.

P.O.V.:

NTC leaders have said Gadhafi, 69, was shot in the head when he was “caught in the crossfire” between his supporters and new regime fighters soon after he was pulled from a culvert where he had been hiding.

The CBC’s Derek Stoffel, reporting from Tripoli Saturday, said amateur video taken by opposition fighters is raising red flags for human rights groups, but “Libyans mostly don’t care how he died.”

“I’ve been speaking to many here who say after 42 years of his rule he deserved what he got, although there are some who say they would have liked ot have seen a trial for the crimes he carried out against the Libyan people,” Stoffel said.

Lineups to see body

Omar Turbi, an American advisor to the National Transitional Council, says Libyans are looking forward, not backward.

“The feeling is everybody’s happy. there are no considerations for legal ramifications [regarding] how he died because of all the vengeance and all the built-up feelings toward Gadhafi. It doesn’t matter how he died. It’s the end of an era that has been a horrible history of Libya,” Turbi said.

Opposition forces stepped up the search for Gadhafi after they swept into Tripoli and seized control of most of the oil-rich North African nation.

Their campaign was stalled by fierce resistance by Gadhafi loyalists in Sirte, Bani Walid and pockets in the south.

Gadhafi’s body had become somewhat of a tourist attraction. It was being held in a freezer in a shopping mall in Misrata, east of Tripoli, as the debate continues over what to do with his remains.

People crowded into long lines to get a chance to view the body, which was laid out on a mattress.

The body of Gadhafi’s son, Mutassim, had been moved from another location in Misrata and placed next to his dead father, along with the body of Abu Bakr Younis Jabr, who led Gadhafi’s armed forces. They, too, were killed near Sirte.

Mohamed Sayeh, a senior member of the NTC, on Friday said Moammar Gadhafi’s body will be buried according to Islamic tradition, but the funeral will not be public.

October 20, 2011      1405 GMT

For 42 years, Moammar Gadhafi ruled Libya with an iron fist, a mercurial leader who inspired fear in Libya and beyond.

But for the past two months he has been on the run, hunted by rebels who made a lightning advance into Tripoli. The rebels overran Gadhafi’s compound and scoured the country for signs of the leader.

He stayed out of sight for two months, broadcasting occasional defiant messages by radio and television, but on Thursday, Libya erupted in celebratory gunfire and the honking of horns at unconfirmed reports that he had been killed.

The country’s new information minister, Mahmoud Shamman, told CNN that Gadhafi was killed in an attack Thursday. Shamman said the NTC’s chairman or prime minister would officially confirm the death later in the day.

Gadhafi’s death would be a dramatic end to the career of the strongman who came to power in a bloodless coup against King Idris in 1969, when he was just an army captain.

By the end of his rule this year, Gadhafi claimed to be “King of Kings,” a title he had a gathering of tribal leaders grant him in 2008.

The fighting that dislodged Gadhafi started with anti-government demonstrations in February and escalated into a nationwide civil war. The protests started days after the fall of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, whom Gadhafi had supported. That month, Gadhafi vowed to never leave Libya and to “die as a martyr at the end.”

For months, rebel fighters — in control of the eastern city of Benghazi and other areas — had been trying to move closer toward Tripoli, in the west. Over the summer they cut off some key supply routes for Gadhafi, bringing them closest yet to their goal, and by August 21, they had broken through into the capital.

The following morning, raucous rebel supporters packed the city’s Green Square, the same place where the longtime leader’s supporters had gathered for months to voice their loyalty. The next day, Gadhafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound was being ransacked.

When Gadhafi assumed power, he fashioned himself as an Arab nationalist. The United States tried to work with him at first, but quickly found out that his brand of nationalism included opposition to the West.

By 1972 he was urging Muslims to fight Western powers, including the United States and Great Britain, and backing black militants in the United States as he pursued a leadership position in the Arab world. His “Green Book,” first published in 1975, envisioned a radically simple system of “People’s Conferences” that would replace political structures from tribes to parliaments.

Arab leaders largely shunned him, seeing him more as a “buffoon” and a “clown” than a potential pan-Arab leader, said Dirk J. Vandewalle, a Libya expert at Dartmouth University.

That rejection from Arab and African leaders, combined with his growing anti-Western sentiment, left him to turn to terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s, Vandewalle said.

In 1986, Libya was implicated in the fatal bombing at a West Berlin nightclub that left one American service member dead, prompting then-U.S. President Ronald Reagan to dub the Libyan leader the “mad dog of the Middle East.” Reagan ordered the United States to bomb Libya and imposed economic sanctions against the North African country.

Two years later, Libya was implicated in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland.

Years later, Gadhafi appeared to moderate and seek rapprochement with the West. In 1999, he turned over suspects in the Lockerbie bombing, and in 2003 the country agreed to eliminate weapons of mass destruction.

In the years before the current rebellion started, Gadhafi even hired a public relations firm to burnish his global image as a statesman and a reformer. Starting in 2006, the leader spent about $3 million a year to execute a public relations strategy that included paying think-tank analysts and former government officials to take a free trip to Libya for lectures, discussions and personal meetings with Gadhafi.

In 2009, he addressed the U.N. General Assembly for the first and only time. In his 96-minute ramble, he denounced the Security Council as a “terror council,” suggested the H1N1 swine-flu virus was a military tool and called for renewed investigations into the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Earlier this year, as people around the Middle East and North Africa began to challenge their leaders in the so-called Arab Spring movement, Gadhafi found himself a target. But while longtime Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was ousted after a few weeks, and even after the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi fell to the rebels, Gadhafi fought on and blamed outsiders, “armed gangs” and others for the violence.

In the end, the Libyan leader sealed his reputation with his crackdown on protesters and attacks against rebels and civilians alike.

International leaders accused Gadhafi’s regime of committing human rights violations and killing civilians. The U.N. Security Council subsequently issued a no-fly zone over Libya and approved “all necessary measures” short of invasion to protect civilians. Officials in the Gadhafi regime, in turn, repeatedly accused NATO of killing civilians in airstrikes.

In April, Gadhafi wrote a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama, urging him to end the NATO bombing of his war-torn country. Gadhafi asked Obama to stop what he called the “unjust war against a small people of a developing country,” adding that those in the opposition are terrorists and members of al Qaeda.

The NATO operations continued, however. In June, the International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for Gadhafi, his son Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, and his brother-in-law Abdullah al-Sanussi. The warrants are “for crimes against humanity,” including murder and persecution, “allegedly committed across Libya” from February 15 through “at least” February 28, “through the state apparatus and security forces,” the court said in a statement.

However, the National Transitional Council now governing Libya never promised to hand Gadhafi over to the ICC to stand trial.

The vice chairman of Libya’s National Transitional Council confirmed that ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi had been killed on Friday and said the interim government would announce the liberation of Libya “within hours.”

That would be a landmark announcement, after which the interim government has said it would begin the transition to democracy in the North African state ruled by Gaddafi with an iron fist for 42 years until August.

“We announce to the world that Muammar Gaddafi has been killed at the hands of the revolutionaries,” Abdul Hafiz Ghoga told a news conference in Benghazi. “We will announce the liberation of Libya within hours, maybe sooner.”

Belhadj spoke last week to Al Jazeera

August 29th, 2011 – 22:08

For U.S. intelligence services, the man who led the rebel assault on Tripoli, and is now the de facto military governor of the capital, is an old acquaintance. The CIA had tracked down the accused jihadist, and eventually captured him in Malaysia in 2003. The agency is believed to have then transferred him, in total silence, to a “top secret” prison in Bangkok.

At that time, Abdel Hakim Belhadj, identified under the name of Abu Abdallah al-Sadek, born May 1, 1966, was already known for his long history as a jihad operative. This career began in 1988 in Afghanistan, like many other Islamist activists.

However if the CIA wanted him, it’s first because he was one of the founders, and even the “emir” of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a small highly radical organization, which prior to Sept. 11 had two secret training camps in Afghanistan. The CIA was extremely interested in one of them, Shahid Cheikh Abu Yahya, about 19 miles north of Kabul, where the LIFG welcomed volunteers who had links with Al Qaeda.

Osama Bin Laden’s organization had many Libyans among its leading members, including Abu al-Laith al-Libi, one of Al-Qaeda’s military chiefs who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008. In 2007, the LIFG was given the seal of approval by Ayman al Zawahiri, then Al-Qaeda’s number two, and current successor of Bin Laden at the helm of the network. The LIFG then called on Libyans to rebel against Gaddafi, the U.S. and the other “infidels” of the West.

After Afghanistan, Belhadj traveled to Pakistan and Iraq. In Iraq, where the Libyans are the second most numerous group of Islamist volunteers after the Saudis, he was said to be close to Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, Al-Qaeda’s chief in that country until his death in 2006. In Bangkok, in 2004, after having long been questioned and possibly tortured by the CIA, he was handed over to the Libyan secret services.

From jail to uprising

In 2009, the Libyan regime, under the direction of Saif al-Islam, Gaddafi’s son and heir apparent, initiated an unexpected policy of reconciliation with the LIFG. The leaders of the group then published a 417-page document called “the corrective studies” (in French “les études correctrices”), in which they stated that holy war against Gaddafi was outlawed, since it was only allowed in Muslim countries that had been invaded (Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine).

The document may have been a way to avoid further torture. Nevertheless, it eventually allowed Belhadj to get out of prison — and he didn’t keep his word for long. Indeed, he joined the rebel forces and took the lead of the movement in western Libya to lead them to victory in Tripoli.

Has Belhadj distanced himself from Al-Qaeda? It’s a thorny question when considering that the man has already perjured himself twice. It’s difficult not to see him involved in the recent murder of former Ministry of Interior Abdul Fatah Younis who had rejoined the rebels. According to a Libyan expert, the explanation is rather clear. “Younis used to lead the special forces and he conducted a merciless battle against the LIFG between 1990 and 1995 in eastern Libya.”

It is thus no accident that former members of the LIFG now hold the most important military jobs: Belhadj in Tripoli, Ismail al-Salabi in Benghazi, Abdel Hakim al-Assadi in Derna. Among the members of the Libyan National Transitional Council, one can find Ali Salabi. In 2009, on behalf of Saif al-Islam, he was the one who handled negotiations on the release of LIFG prisoners in exchange for them renoucing armed operations. Events in Libya have come full circle indeed!

Eman al-Obeidi addresses journalists in Tripoli's Rixos Hotel in March
2 June 2011 Last updated at 18:30 ET

Eman al-Obeidi, the Libyan woman who
claimed to have been raped by supporters of Col Muammar Gaddafi, has been
deported from Qatar to eastern Libya, UN officials say.

A spokesman for the Libyan rebels said she had arrived in the city of
Benghazi and was “welcome to stay”.

Ms Obeidi had sought refuge in Qatar after arriving there from Tunisia.

The reason for her deportation is not clear. The UN says it runs contrary to
international law.

“She is a recognised refugee and we don’t consider there is any good reason
for her deportation,” Sybella Wilkes of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) told the
Associated Press.

Human Right Watch (HRW)
also protested against the move
.

“Forcibly returning a refugee who survived gang rape not only violates
international law, but is cruel and could trigger further trauma,” said HRW’s
Bill Frelick.

“All eyes are now on the authorities in eastern Libya, who should allow
al-Obeidi to leave the country.”

A witness quoted by HRW said Qatari officials had taken Ms Obeidi from her
hotel room on Wednesday night and forced her and her visiting parents to board a
flight on Thursday to Benghazi.

Benghazi is the stronghold of rebel forces who are trying to oust Col
Gaddafi.

Rebel spokesman Jalal el-Gallal told AP: “She is welcome to stay, this is her
country.”

Dragged awayUS state department spokesman Mark Toner said Washington was “monitoring the
situation”.

In March, Ms Obeidi rushed into Tripoli’s Rixos Hotel where foreign
correspondents are based and shouted out her story of being stopped at a
checkpoint, dragged away and gang raped by soldiers.

As reporters recorded her story, government minders grabbed her and dragged
her away.

She vanished for several days before turning up in Tunisia.

Ms Obeidi said she had escaped with the help of defecting military
officers.
