Syria’s Basher Assad should be nervous right now…

Both the New York Times and Al Jazeera are reporting that Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi (or Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi according to the NYT or however it is spelled) is dead after being wounded in the battle for his hometown of Sirte.

Al Jazeera reports:

Abdul Hakim Belhaj, an NTC military chief, has confirmed that Muammar Gaddafi has died of his wounds after being captured near Sirte… The body of the former Libyan leader was taken to a location which is being kept secret for security reasons, an NTC official said… “Gaddafi’s body is with our unit in a car and we are taking the body to a secret place for security reasons,” Mohamed Abdel Kafi, an NTC official in the city of Misrata, told Reuters.

Abdul Hakim Belhaj, the leader of the Tripoli military council and the highest ranking military officer in Libya’s interim government, confirmed on Al-Jazeera TV that Gaddafi had been killed and that his forces had his body. As news spread of Gaddafi’s death in the capital, Tripoli, car horns blared as many celebrated in the streets. The interim government is now expected to call elections within the next eight months.

Meanwhile back in Syria, protests are turning into armed resistance as the Assad regime deals with an economic meltdown. Could Basher Assad be next? Stay tuned!

And what does this mean for the Jews? It’s hard to know right now. One can assume that the financial support provided by Gaddafi to anti-Israel terrorist organizations and entities is going to dry up, at least in the short run, as the Libyans focus on rebuilding their country. It is however unlikely that Libyan attitudes toward Israel and Jews are going to change dramatically after decades of government propaganda and brainwashing. We have already seen how the Arab Spring is able to topple dictators but it cannot remove deep seated hatred.

More Gaddafi is dead photos released by liveleak. Not gonna show them here though. We have to keep everything family friendly!

  • Jesus H. Christ Wendy!!! Couldn’t you find more graphic images? OK, I get it, Gaddafi’s dead. This is good news for the people of Libya, bad news for my appetite.

  • I like the images. Well, “like” in the sense of artistic appreciation. I think I’ll go eat something now.

  • The world wanted an end to Gaddafi’s rule. Now what? Gaddafi has finally fallen on his own sword. Is the Arab world pleased?
    One battle is over. Gaddafi is gone. But the multiple battles are going to start. Conflicts between NATO’s men and the fighters and their supporters on the ground, and conflicts between the foreign forces that have spent billions in the war on Gaddafi:
    The vacuum created by Gaddafi’s departure is now filled by a sharp polarisation between the rival Libyan camps between pro-Gaddafi and anti Gaddafi Libyans
    It is a contest between an independent Libyan economic nationalism and one dominated as we see in all Arab lands by the West. Will the west allow this?
    These conflicts are part of the wider scene in the region, which is characterised by polarisation between the internal dynamics of the revolution and the foreign powers’ logic of containment and calculated economic control and political domination as we see in KSA
    These foreign powers’ strategy is to change the old players with new ones. The neo-colonisation game rules are intact. The West will as usual initiate proxy wars manned via allied local elites, thus packing the same wine in a new bottle as they have been doing in Tunisia and Egypt.
    In the end the people of Libya are the losers. The masses should never support a regime change that is backed by Western powers as it does not create the necessary change from the point of independent economic nationalism.

  • Looks like the new Libya isn’t much different than the old Libya. I have no sympathy for Gaddafi and his sons, he who lives by the sword… but I am looking forward to the institution of law and order in Libya.

  • i dont think there will be any change in libya the fall of gaddaf will rise the conflict of interest amongst libyan,nato an the west

  • I wonder how you’ll be crowing when the THOUSANDS of shoulder -fired rockets and the chemical weapons that are missing wind up being used against America and Israel.

    Obama and Hillary and Soros and Malley learned NOTHING from when we armed the mujahadeen against the soviets in the 70’s.

    This is going to bite us in the ass JUST LIKE BIN LADEN AND 9/11 and you “progressive” fools are screaming about the “arab spring”.

    It’s the WORLDS WINTER, and you helped bring it.


    Still proud of yourselves?

  • Another victim of the jew world order! We need to get our act together and send the jews to the GAS!
