Libya: Four Protesters Killed, 20 Wounded in Benghazi in Demonstrations Against Armed Groups
22/09/2012 05:11:00
Demonstrators in Benghazi as they stormed the headquarters of Ansar al-Sharia base in the city forcing the brigade to abandon site on Friday night.

Benghazi—Four protesters killed in Benghazi Friday night and over 20 wounded when demonstrators moved against armed groups in the city stormed a number of bases occupied by militias in the city.

The targeting of these bases by protesters followed a huge demonstration in downtown Benghazi demanding of dismissing the armed groups and the activation of the police force and army.

Among the armed groups’ headquarters that were controlled by the protestors is that of the Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia, suspected of involvement in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

The other armed groups whose bases were stormed by civilian protesters is the Rafallah Al Sahati and the 17 February Brigade of Benghazi.

In a speech via radio, the President of the National Congress Mohamed Magarief called on the protesters and the armed groups not to resort to violence.

He called on portesters to differentiate between the unofficial militias and the real revolutionary brigades which helped secure the city and authorized to do so by the government.

The Libyan public have been demanding the dismissal of the large number of armed groups which emerged since the collapse of the Gaddafi regime last year.

These armed groups have become a threat to security and stability in the country.

Thank you, Benghazi! The American news outlets are lit across the board. Thousands, soon millions, of Americans are defending Libyans and speaking out against the stereotyping of Muslims.

Thank you for helping those of us who understand what you're going through to defend you!

Comment:
" Congressional Republicans criticized the administration over what they called its failure to anticipate the problems in Libya. Some Republican lawmakers have moved to cut off aid to Libya as a result.

But one powerful Republican, Senator John McCain, counseled against such a move, citing the pro-American sentiments of some of the demonstrators who confronted Ansar al-Sharia on Friday.

“These brave people in Libya are friends of America,” he said. “They want our help and need our help. And we must continue to provide it to them, which is exactly what Chris Stevens would have wanted.” "
Comment:
what a surprise! who organized this?
Comment:
I am so proud that ordinary Libyans have shown the world that they are not supporting thugs who claim to be doing the Lords work by hate, threats, crime and murder. These evil men are not men of God but the very opposite.

Libyans have once again shown the world they will be free and they will not be dictated to ever again by evil men with guns. Bravo.
Comment:
All of our respect and condolences are with the courageous and righteous people of Benghazi and Libya. America and the world is with you as you stand strong against evil and the blasphemy of terrorism.

Our friends, the Libyan people, who's respect and regard for Chris Stevens will never be forgotten.

Be well and please stand strong. We stand with you.
Comment:
I am saying a prayer this evening for the people that fought and lost their lives for the freedom of Libyan citizens. They did not die a coward's death like these thug terrorist criminals running around. They fought and died for a worthy cause. Freedom is sometimes misused; however, it is a VERY important ingredient to a country's success. I am proud of the Libyan citizens who died today so that freedom can grow stronger in Libya.

9/11 ("false flag" attack planned by Bush & co.)
7/7 "false flag" in London (Blair seals the Pact with Bush)
The War in Iraq
The next expansion of the territory of Israel.
The future collapse of the World financial system

All these are not individual events but instead
part of the Zionist Plan.

Once again, the next US presidential election will be fixed.
Mitt Romney will be elected even though Barack Obama
will have received more votes in the 2012 election.
The political assassination will be perpetrated by Bush hiding behind Crossroads GPS, the most influential group of Neocons.

The Neocons will have Mitt Romney elected to first use him and then let him fall easy prey. All blames and responsibilities will fall on the new Mormon president for the events already planned.

The new World War of Religion is already a done deal behind the backs of all people which will be forced to fight for their own Countries in their obligation as citizens

This next War will be the excuse to completely abolish the concept of Equality and all human rights associated with it

For this reason, the conflict, whichever mask it may wear,
must be redefined from the start:
pro or against Equality.

....................

First in history, this worldwide crisis was provoked through
a terror event (9/11) plotted by a US president, George Bush.
This was to destabilize the equilibrium of all Countries
and trigger a chain of events almost unavoidable
all of them part of the same Plan.

Many simultaneous rebellions stirred up in Arab Countries
will benefit in the end only the State of Israel
with the expansion of its territory
while...
in Europe and in the US, the financial resources "like magic" will disappear through bailouts, tax cuts and elaborated emergency maneuvers which will be ruled only to appear beneficial for those Countries but instead appositely designed for their collapse
(except for England that will push Europe over the precipice).

It is closer than you think

Stock markets and Treasury bonds will ...... "freeze",
the old economy will get to .... "the last stop"
and the Internet will have ... "its plug pulled".

Massive poverty will bring chaos and anarchy
while the lack of effective governments will set the stage for one
World Tyranny

It will be just from chaos that one voice will rise
with the promise to fix all and everyone.
That will be the forked tongue of the
New World Order

Comment:
I don't know if the Libyan people realize that ordinary Americans and people all over the world are kind of amazed by them. First, they overthrew a tyrant and establish a young democracy that seems to be working. Then, average citizens risked their lives trying to save the lives of the US ambassador and three others. Now, ordinary Libyans are standing up to armed groups that threaten the freedom and safety that Libyans fought so hard for.

Those of us who are not Libyans are now seeing why Ambassador Stevens loved and respected the Libyan people so much.

Hopefully, Libya and its people will very soon see all of the peace and prosperity that it deserves.
Comment:
These are the steps that Libyan needs to take to avoid becoming Afghanistan or Pakistan. The Saudi Arabians and Qataris are doing their best to make this country Afghanistan but BRAVO the Couragious Libyans. Hit these Saudis and Qatari's in their faces and tell them to spread this hate in their own countries.
Comment:
Chris Stevens a great Lybia friend ...he was very furious on demanding freedom for Lybian people, let him be blessed forever....a statue of Chris Stevens to be erected in Benghazi center as remembrances to this grandiose Lybia friend and as warning to all of Lybia enemies that the spirit of freedom of people of Lybia will never die out but will live forever for centuries and centuries to come.

Comment:
I am so impressed with the Libyan people. First you got rid of the oppressive dictator, then you held successful free and fair elections in near record time, and now you are getting rid of those who would want to subject you to another kind of dictatorship.

The Libyan people are awesome.

May the martyrs who gave their lives for freedom rest in peace.

Comment:
May God bless the people of Libya for their courage and in pursuit of democracy. I hope they will inspire others to voice their convictions and values. It is no wonder that Ambassador Stevens loved the people of Libya.
Comment:
After living in Libya for 5 years pre revolution, there is only one thing I can say, and that is, do not under estimate the Libya People. Their achievement has been mammoth so far, and their struggle huge. Give them the hope their deserve and watch them create a great country. God be with them.
Comment:
PREMATURE EUPHORIA !

Please read the article before you comment.

There is no prove that the Ansar al-Sharia group is guilty. Quote: " ... is suspected of involvement in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi." Suspected! But four people had to die, 20 were wounded.

The State did not and could not prevent violence and distruction, was helpless against a blood-thirsty mob, dispite calls from the President of the National Congress "... not to resort to violence." The presence of security forces is not mentioned. They probably didn't even try.

This chaotic picture, which is not new to us, is excactly what we don't want to see. What we want to see is the rule of law and order.

When the Libyans have it, we can celebrate.
