Rebel's barbaric behavior In Libya

Not being reported by the media is the rebel activity-taking place in Libya concerning blacks. It is being reported that Gaddafi is using black mercenaries to fight the rebels. reports bystanders, including women and children are leaping to their deaths from high bridges as they try to escape battle-hardened mercenaries from neighboring countries like Chad.

AND IN RETALIATION Libyan rebels are going after blacks where they live with a vengeance despite the fact that they are not all mercenaries but common laborers.

Frontpagemagazine reports beatings, beheadings, and executions are taking place as the rebels gather to watch and yell Allah Akbar. Videos have immerged showing the savagery of the rebel treatment of the blacks, including the hanging of blood covered men up side down as crowds of hundreds gather and cheer. Another video shows an alleged black being mercilessly beaten.

The LA times reports that hundreds of blacks that are not mercenaries have been caught up in the melee. Thousands have fled the country or are hiding from the Libyan rebels. Thousands have lost their homes and all their possessions.

As they pour out of Libya and Tunisia they head for the tiny island of Lampedusa. To prevent the overloaded boats from capsizing, young males on board have been throwing the women overboard, most of whom apparently drowned

The deeply rooted racism that Arabs have for blacks has been exacerbated. says, “From the seventh century to the twentieth, it is estimated 14 million black Africans were violently enslaved and transported under harsh conditions to countries around the Islamic world. Due to the blackness of the slave’s skin combined with his menial work and chattel status, Africans became synonymous in Arab eyes with inferiority and even something less than human

The word Arabs use for blacks is abeed, which means slave. Many Arabs feel Africans are only fit for slavery.

One black Libyan made the following plea for help from the UN:

“We are under attack by local people who are saying that we are mercenaries killing people. Let me say that they did not want to see black people. There is racism. We need help,” cried one refugee to UNHCR staff in Libya.

“Please, please, please, where is the humanity? Where is the United Nations? I am crying. I need help. Our home was burnt down. Ten Somalis were killed in Libya in the last seven days. Why is nobody concerned about the Somali migrants in Libya? We are victims of racism and ruthless exploitation.”

Much of this brutal behavior has not been reported because Gaddafi has shut down much of the media including Internet providers, social networking sites and the signals of western news channels.

So, these are the people the United States is spending millions on to. . . what is it again? Help them get rid of a cruel dictator and replace it with . . . .what exactly? These are the men whom John McCain says are his heroes after his recent trip to Libya.

Betcha he didn’t see any Libyan rebels stringing up innocent blacks and beating them to death as the crowd cheered.

      It is difficult to understand how the world population can be so cruel and indifferent. We choose our friends based on what we know at the time. Learning new things later can make one question their original judgement.

      Giving McCain the benefit of the doubt, I would guess he did not know about this when he called them his heroes. John McCain is a good person and would not tolerate this behavior.

      Poolman, that is the POINT. We rush in to Libya without having any idea what we are getting into. McCain makes a cursory visit sees young men fighting for something and immediately decides they are heroic. Our leaders absolutely must start studying Islam, Arabs, and the entire l7th century gang over there, before they commit our men to die defending . . . .what? Bush, Obama, all of them have no idea what they are up against. That's how I see it after studying that culture for over 2 years.

      I agree, he is a kind man and he meant well, but what damage has he done out of ignorance?

      I missed a lot of the other side of this argument, so thank you for filling me in, I will now go and do some research on the subject.

      My bet is the rebels have a lot to answer for.
