Moussa Ibrahim Statement 20th October 2012
Sunday October 21, 2012 04:59 by An Draighneán Donn
Khamis is Alive!
Anti-imperialists around the world are in high spirits, after hearing that General Khamis al-Gaddafi (Gaddafi's youngest son) and Moussa Ibrahim are alive, and in good health.
Translation of the Statement:
In the Name of God, the Great, and in the name of Fatah the Great.
Salute to all of you, freedom fighters of Libya. I am Dr. Moussa Ibrahim and I am talking to you today, after watching the country under the criminals of NATO. I am here to say that we still have power, we are still strong, with God's help, and we trust our selves that our duty is to bring safety to our country, after all these killings and stealings, that brought the rats of NATO into our country.
But today, after all the false news that is being spread, via BBC, Al Arabyia, etc., I have to tell you that all this is just to take the world's eye off what is really happening, and what the NATO fighters are doing to our families in Bani Walid. Its obvious from photos and videos that people in Bani Walid - men, women and children, are being killed by aircraft attacks on their homes, and by all these criminals from Misrata that carry guns.
And this is all happening because the Nato rats are threatening the people of the Jamahyryia to not stand by people of Bani Walid.
They talk about Moussa Ibrahim and Khamis Al Gaddafi. We are outside Libya, we are not even in a place near Bani Walid. They are hitting Bani Walid. They know that Bani Walid is a big tribe. Bani Walid is geographically a very important place, and it's tribe has a strong meaning for the country. They are afraid of what is going to happen between the tribes of Libya. What is happening now to Bani Walid has nothing to do with the regime. This is clash between tribes.
After what happened to our leader, Al Gaddafi and Saif Al Islam, the channels of the BBC, Al Arabyia, Al Jazeera, etc. are spreading false news about Khamis Al Gaddafi and Moussa Ibrahim and other people.
But our families are still in Bani Walid and, with God's help, we will be back to them.
But shame on you. Shame on you Libyans. Whether this is about Muammar Al Gaddafi or not, shame on you, a Libyan city is being attacked and cut to pieces. It's men, women and children are being massacred, and you are just idly watching.
You have to think that this is not about policy. You have to think this is about the dignity of Libyans. Those people who attack Bani Walid have no dignity. They have no brothers, they have no feeling of their nationality.
They lied about us, they said that we killed. They are the ones who killed people, yet they claimed that we had killed children. In fact, it was they who killed children.
They said we were stealing, when, in fact, it is they who have stolen. They have handed our nation over to demonic Western imperialist rule.
Muammar Al Gaddafi was the man who cared about Libya. He was for the best of Libya. Yes, there were problems, but these problems were being resolved by peaceful dialogue.
But, these traitors sold our nation.
Please Libyans, stand by Bani Walid. Help Bani Walid. History will remain forever. History will write that Bani Walid was cut to pieces, its people massacred, and the Western tribes just watched.
I have to give many thanks the thousands of people who contacted me on Face Book, or via Paltalk, twitter or by telephone. But my life is not worth more than other men, who were martyred on this day, the 20th of October 2011. My life is not more valuable than the lives of those who remain in enemy prison camps.
Muammar al Gaddafi is my leader. Libya is my country still, and NATO is my enemy.
Thank you very much, and I hope that we will meet soon on our land that has been betrayed. Thank you and let God guide you!
