U.S. Helps “Rebels” Murdering Black Libyans
July 11, 2011


*By Colin Benjamin*

*Misrata Ethnically Cleansed of Blacks Says Wall Street Journal…*

The implication is bewildering. Could it be true the Libyan “rebels”—who
we’re told are fighting to protect innocent civilians—are now committing
mass murder, lynching and terrorizing Black Libyans and African migrant

Sadly, the evidence is mounting that this awful truth is exactly the case in
Libya—right now. Ironically, we know this, partly, because of reporting done
by the conservative *Wall Street
in an article on June 21. Where the hell is the
*New York Times*, CNN and all those, supposedly, “liberal” news
organizations on a story of such macabre magnitude?

*The Wall Street Journal* story, reports that the “rebels” who’re,
supposedly, fighting to save the Libyan people, have unleashed a wave of
racial violence against Black Libyans, and, other Africans who find
themselves caught in the war zone. Apparently, these “liberators” are busy
trying to “ethnically cleanse” Black Libyans from towns like Tawergha, which
is heavily populated by Black Libyans, having already completed the deed in
Misrata, which is Libya’s third largest city.

They’re also attacking African migrant workers in the country. It’s now
clear these “rebels” have mercenary kill-units sporting slogans like “the
brigade for purging slaves, black skin.”

*The Wall Street Journal* piece also quotes rebel commander Ibrahim
al-Halbous saying “They (Black Libyans) should pack up. Tawergha no longer
exists, only Misrata.”

Isn’t this a clear declaration of their intent to exterminate Black Libyans
in Tawergha and destroy that city? It’s reported by *The Journal* that
Colonel Muhammar al-Quathafi was distrustful of the powerful White Libyan
merchant families in Misrata. With good reason, it seems. All Black Libyans,
who were living in Misrata, have now, apparently, been “purged” from

Is the slaughter of Blacks by these “rebels” acceptable to the Western
“international community?” Where is the outrage from The New York Times
editorial page, which this week was still urging NATO to continue
bombardment? Is there any concern for these civilians who’re been attacked
by these terroristic thugs? The lie that Libya hired African mercenaries to
attack Libyans has now been exposed as a farce and cover story to justify
the slaughter of Black civilians.

Isn’t the protection of civilians the justification we were given by NATO,
President Obama and French President Nicholas Sarkozy for their targeting of
Colonel Quathafi and the current bombing campaign?

Results of the Libya bombing requested by the Libyan rebels

Let’s talk about the French president, who initiated this latest episode of
imperial meddling. This week, we hear the schizophrenic Sarkozy has been
arming these violent insurrectionists in violation of United Nations

This little man tells the world Quathafi is evil. Yet, it wasn’t so long ago
he pretended to be on friendly terms with Quathafi. He even, apparently,
accepted largess from the Libyan government to finance his 2007 presidential
campaign. It’s alleged he hasn’t given back this money. Some say Sarkozy is
seeking to boost his fledgling poll numbers against right-wing presidential
candidate Marine Le Pen for France’s upcoming 2012 elections. Is Sarkozy
also seeking to clear his debt?

We were first told NATO was only bombing to implement a no-fly zone to
protect civilians. However, over time the language has shifted to regime
change. Western interlopers have rejected the cease fire plans of the
African Union. Ironically, following the recent African Union meeting this
week in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, the “rebels” have now accepted the AU
peace plan. It call’s for an internationally-monitored ceasefire,
negotiations, and democratic elections.


Not surprisingly *The New York Times* has not covered the news since it does
not deem it “fit to print.” Hillary Clinton and Sarkozy haven’t uttered a
word about the Libyans’ accepting the AU
So whose war in Libya really is it? Can you imagine if the fate of Black
humanity was left to the tender mercies and the discretion of the editorial
writers of *The New York Times*?

France’s arming of the “rebels” has been called “a very crude violation of
U.N. Security Council Resolution 1970,” by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei
Lavrov. Resolution 1970, enacted last February, imposed an arms embargo in
the Libyan conflict–Resolution 1973 placed the no-fly zone.

France may also be in violation of European Union (EU) laws regarding arms
trading. The Obama White House is again backing France’s unilateral decision
to arm these insurrectionists. This development is inexplicable, since,
overwhelming evidence shows these “rebels” are the same terrorists
highlighted in the Sinjar Records, which I wrote about months ago.


This important report has been virtually ignored by the media, which is
alarming, given, its damning findings. The Sinjar Records are a cache of
files seized on the battlefield in Iraq in 2007. They contain sensitive
information on the demographics, and vital statistics, of those who were
fighting—against America—in the Iraq War. The Sinjar Records were analyzed
at West Point Military Academy by Colonel Joseph Felter and Brian Fishman.

One of the study’s most chilling findings was this observation: “Libya
contributed far more fighters per capita than any other
nationality…including Saudi Arabia.” And the report, specifically, links the
Benghazi and Darnah areas—which is where these Libyan “rebels” hail from—as
“the most common cities that these fighters called home.” Question: why is
America supporting these racist terrorists seeking to overthrow Libya’s


Those who deem themselves the moral voices and will of the “international
community” tell us they’re dropping bombs on Tripoli to stop Colonel
Quathafi from the killing of innocents. Since when did Western imperialists
care so much about people in Africa?

Oil, and colonial geopolitics, is at work here. These are the same people
who’ve impoverished Africa and the other non-white nations of the world. And
now we’re supposed to trust what they tell us about Colonel Quathafi? I
don’t think so. For those who had any doubts be thankful to *The Wall Street
Journal* for breaking the solidarity of silence among major media about the
ethnic cleansing of Black Libyans.

Journalist I.F. Stone once said “All governments lie.” So, it shouldn’t be
shocking to us the Obama White House also engages in lying, to achieve their
peculiar political objectives. It’s part of the Machiavellian political
concept of retaining power. But what’s ironic is America’s first Black
president is now, inadvertently, helping racists—who’re killing Africans—to
attain power in Libya.

President Obama says Colonel Quathafi must go. Mr. President, its NATO and
Western imperialism that must go.
