The Palestinian Jihad Islami escalated its attacks on a dozen Israel towns and villages Saturday, firing up to 100 rockets on the second day of their revenge for Israel’s targeted killing of Zuheir al-Qaisi, head of the Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza, before he could carry out his second terrorist attack from Sinai. The volleys Saturday, March 10, included Grad multiple rocket launchers mounted on vehicles and SA-7 anti-air rockets, the Russian version of the American Stinger, smuggled from Libya. [DEBKAfile]
NATO and U.S.-backed rebel forces in Libya are reportedly engaging in systematic attacks against the black population in what some analysts have called war crimes and even genocide, sparking condemnation worldwide from human-rights groups and officials. Reports and photographic evidence indicate that numerous atrocities including mass executions have taken place even in recent weeks. Many black victims were found with their hands bound behind their backs and bullets through their skulls.
Fifty Libyan Muslim Brotherhood mercenaries arrived in the Gaza Strip from Tripoli last month – in time to take part in the Jihad Islami’s last missile offensive against Israel starting Oct. 29, DEBKAfile‘s military sources report. They arrived at the wheels of minivans on which were mounted the new Grad multiple rocket-launchers which Palestinian terrorists fired for the first time last month. These mobile rocket-launchers were last seen on the Libyan battlefield in use against Muammar Qaddafi’s army.
The 50 mercenaries did not bother to paint over the Libyan national colors or replace the trucks’ Libyan license plates. Jihad Islami fighters kept them sequestered away from awkward questions about who sent them.
Gazan sources report the Libyan mercenaries left Tripoli on October 10 aboard two buses which drove them via Benghazi to Tobruk. They then entered Egypt as tourists.
On Oct. 21, the day Muammar Qaddafi was killed, they crossed the Suez Canal into the Sinai Peninsula. [DEBKAfile, today (more)]
Anyone who cared to dig through the graveyards of Sudan already knew that Muslims mattered more than Africans to us. The sky full of jets that we dispatched to bomb Yugoslavia on behalf of Muslim terrorists never clouded the skies of Khartoum. But they did show up to bomb Tripoli so that Islamist thugs could begin torturing and murdering Africans. Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield), Remembering Muslim Colonialism on September 11
It’s official (or “half-official,” in the US at least, now that the nice third “Arab Spring” job is almost done):
“A [US] defense official familiar with jihadist strategy said Islamists likely will emerge in power from the turmoil expected after the demise of the Gadhafi regime and the West will be partly to blame.
“We’re helping pave the way for them” through NATO airstrikes and other support, he said.
About 1,000 jihadists are operating covertly in Libya, Noman Benotman, a former Libyan al Qaeda member, told The Washington Times in March.”**
“Celebration, man!” Another war victory against the US with much help from the US itself (Kosovo style)!
Btw, does anyone remember which state promoted the UN Security Council resolution for a “no-fly zone” in Libya in the beginning? I think I do: Lebanon. The unofficial province of Iran. In other words, Hezbollah (the Lebanese “Party of God”).

Here are three things Americans need to know about the Libyan “rebels” the U.S. government isn’t telling us.
One: The inspiration of the Libyan war is as much anti-Western as it is anti-Gadhafi.
The “Day of Rage” that kick-started the Libyan war on Feb. 17 marked the fifth anniversary of violent protests in Benghazi, which included an assault on the Italian consulate during which at least 11 were killed. […]
Two: The anti-Gadhafi, anti-Western forces that NATO power has brought to apparent victory through an air war and not-so-secret deployment of special forces (so far costing U.S. taxpayers $1 billion) include jihadist forces the U.S. and NATO allies have been fighting for the past decade in Iraq and Afghanistan. Continue reading “Libyan Freedom”: Some more details about William Hague’s, Daphne Caruana Galizia’s and a few others’ allies in toppling Gaddafi
Like the late Iraqi ruler, [Gaddafi] detests Al Qaeda. But expedience is the rule. Qaddafi would argue that NATO, like the Americans in Iraq, left him very few choices for surviving and therefore pushed him into the arms of the Islamist extremists.
But meanwhile, Al Qaeda has established a presence in the ranks of Qaddafi’s enemies.
Washington, London, Paris and NATO refuse to acknowledge that Mustafa Muhammad Abdul Jalil‘s National Transitional Council in Benghazi has a covert Al Qaeda component. They prefer to believe this fervent Muslim when he pledges to follow the path of “Islam Wassat” (Islam of the Golden Mean) in ruling Libya after he is ensconced in Tripoli.
Like all people who only have the best intentions, these days “the only real journalist in Malta,” Daphne Caruana Galizia, must be as happy as she hasn’t been since the death of Osama bin Laden (Al Qaeda). Finally Gaddafi seems to have left Tripoli, and now, as “Dee says” on Ms Caruana Galizia’s blog, “the mad dog and his cubs” have yet only to be “smok[ed] out” from a few more “filthy cellar[s]” in which they might be hiding now and in the near future. And since everybody else, in a great historical moment like this, just should not worry all that much, but first of all be happy and full of solidarity, another member of Daphne’s blog ummah, “A. Charles,” recommends from the comment section of one of Daphne’s recent posts: “The next thing which people of goodwill should do is to celebrate this victory in Valletta on Saturday.” (Should only, and otherwise be strongly ashamed and hide well, because we have a real liberal democracy here at the time, while under Mintoff that thing would still have been far more compulsory.) Continue reading Celebrating the victory of “Libyan freedom” (Daphne Caruana Galizia) in Tripoli (Libya) and in Valletta (Malta)
IN a knee jerk reflexive action, western pundits have a habit of applauding without understanding the players involved. While surely the average Joe or Jane are thrilled with Qadafi’s ouster, they have every reason to be afraid-very afraid-of the backers behind the ‘rebels’. These so called opponents are Islamic to their core. In fact, their backers have already posted a framework for a new Libyan Constitution. Guess what? Sharia is its CORE doctrinal law.
Not to be a spoil sport, but the pre-jubilation of many Jeffersonian Democrats, when the Shah was ousted, was decidedly premature and is eerily similar to the upheavels we are witnessing. History DOES repeat itself. Continue reading On occasion of Malta’s recognition of the Libyan “transitional council as Libyan government” and Iran’s simultaneous congratulations to the “rebels”…
An al Qaeda branch known as the Al-jamaa Al-islamiya Al-Mokatila is widely believed to be closely associated with rebel leader Mustafa Abdul Jalil and suspected of murdering the rebel commander Maj. Gen. Abdel-Fattah Younis on his behalf. This confirms Muammar Qaddafi’s long-held allegations that al Qaeda is part of rebel ranks. Still, Paris and London […]
