احذروا مكائد القذافي

  • 0:01 - 0:09
    Peace be upon you. In recent days, events have been speeding up
  • 0:09 - 0:13
    and the regime has suffered some consecutive defeats
  • 0:13 - 0:18
    but they are still divorced from reality, living a fantasy
  • 0:18 - 0:24
    imagining they can turn back the wheel of time
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    still not understanding that people can say "No" to them
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    I mean, they are still bewildered
  • 0:31 - 0:40
    Everyone who knows anything in politics knows this regime is finished
  • 0:40 - 0:46
    If you bet on them, for your own interest, you're going to loose
  • 0:46 - 0:50
    by every measure
  • 0:50 - 0:56
    Even the international powers, that study their interests at each step, have abandoned them
  • 0:56 - 1:02
    It has become shameful to have a relationship with this regime
  • 1:02 - 1:07
    What I still can't understand is those people who are still defending the regime
  • 1:07 - 1:11
    The problem is, these people are free to think, they live outside Libya
  • 1:11 - 1:17
    and they try to find excuses, they lie and say this is a "crusader war" or whatever
  • 1:17 - 1:24
    What "crusader war"? He was about to burn Benghazi.
  • 1:24 - 1:33
    Then, when countries came and stopped this, you tell me "it's a crusader war"?
  • 1:33 - 1:39
    OK, so what is it he is doing? What do you call it?
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    There is no power or strength but in God.
  • 1:41 - 1:46
    To be honest I can't comprehend this, I can't understand those who are saying this.
  • 1:46 - 1:53
    It is bewildering.
  • 1:53 - 2:02
    Just quickly, I want to ask a question to all Libyans listening.
  • 2:02 - 2:10
    Who doesn't have a relative, or friend who was murdered in what is called April 7?
  • 2:10 - 2:15
    From '76 up to the mid-80's in the universities
  • 2:15 - 2:25
    Hangings in universities. Who? Who doesn't have a friend or relative who dissappeared at that time?
  • 2:25 - 2:36
    Who doesn't have a friend or relative who was killed in Chad? A pointless war, where in the end he said
  • 2:36 - 2:38
    "Here's Ozu, take it," and nothing happened.
  • 2:38 - 2:42
    Who of us doesn't know someone killed in Uganda, or disappeared in Uganda?
  • 2:42 - 2:47
    Or who was wounded and so was thrown into the sea?
  • 2:47 - 2:50
    Who among us doesn't have relatives who were injected with aids?
  • 2:50 - 3:07
    And those responsible were sentenced first to death then to life imprisonment, then released.
  • 3:07 - 3:10
    It's a farce.
  • 3:10 - 3:19
    The incident of the stadium. Youth who were cheering on a team, and as they were cheering
  • 3:19 - 3:22
    they were shot at with live ammunition.
  • 3:22 - 3:24
    And when you go to take the body of your son
  • 3:24 - 3:27
    you have to sign to say he was a criminal.
  • 3:27 - 3:36
    In 1984, in May, I remember this. They broadcast the executions and hangings at Iftar time
  • 3:36 - 3:49
    You go to break your fast, and they're showing people - martyrs Godwilling - on the gallows
  • 3:49 - 3:52
    and the humiliation of them, and worse than that
  • 3:52 - 3:55
    that the hangings and executions took place in their areas
  • 3:55 - 3:59
    where they were born, in front of their families and their children
  • 3:59 - 4:05
    the destruction of homes, each village in Libya has homes unjustly destroyed
  • 4:05 - 4:08
    the stealing of people's money and property.
  • 4:08 - 4:15
    Brothers, I can't comprehend. When we are close to getting rid of this tyrant
  • 4:15 - 4:20
    we find there are people still standing by him.
  • 4:20 - 4:24
    No one who has been forced into the compulsory military training
  • 4:24 - 4:28
    who has been tortured and dehumanized
  • 4:28 - 4:37
    as they say, break their pride so no one can think of doing anything
  • 4:37 - 4:46
    The terror at the checkpoints, at the borders, the invasions of homes and the rapes
  • 4:46 - 4:50
    Brothers, we are not in a country. I swear to you we are not in a country.
  • 4:50 - 5:03
    What has happened in Libya happens only in Israel. And Israel doesn't do this to their own people.
  • 5:03 - 5:08
    They do it to those they think they're in conflict with.
  • 5:08 - 5:12
    What I'm saying, and especially to those intellectuals abroad
  • 5:12 - 5:18
    who say they are educated and are still excusing and defending the regime.
  • 5:18 - 5:22
    Yesterday one of them sent me an email, saying this is a crusader war.
  • 5:22 - 5:27
    Crusader war? When he was going to burn Benghazi, why didn't you speak then?
  • 5:27 - 5:34
    Crusader war? All your friend has to do is step down. Go and stop the bloodletting.
  • 5:34 - 5:38
    If he was human, and felt anything, he would go to save the bloodletting.
  • 5:38 - 5:50
    The other thing I still can't understand, you who have people in the army, call them, tell them to stop
  • 5:50 - 6:03
    This is wrong, that young men should be led astray and be isolated, to burn in tanks so he can stay in power
  • 6:03 - 6:05
    The owner of the farm, like Libya is his farm
  • 6:05 - 6:09
    with people in it he doesn't consider people, he considers them rats, not even human.
  • 6:09 - 6:20
    And young men die for him. If even a fly were to die for him I'd say it's too much.
  • 6:20 - 6:28
    So please, keep calling, a thousand times to save even one person.
  • 6:28 - 6:32
    If you save even one, it would be like you've saved all humanity.
  • 6:32 - 6:37
    Let's all cooperate on this.
  • 6:38 - 6:46
    Look, the more the noose tightens around the regime
  • 6:46 - 6:49
    the more violent their response will be
  • 6:49 - 6:52
    and the more dirty tactics they will use
  • 6:52 - 6:58
    now we hear them stirring up tribalism, to light a tribal war
  • 6:58 - 7:01
    and he will do everything you can imagine
  • 7:01 - 7:03
    When you want to understand how they think
  • 7:03 - 7:06
    imagine there's a devil in front of you and imagines what he will be prepared to do
  • 7:06 - 7:15
    Now I expect him to take soldiers in civilian clothes and ask them to go to an area
  • 7:15 - 7:20
    and make it seem like it's a war between two civilian sides, between pro-Gaddafi and anti-Gaddafi
  • 7:20 - 7:31
    make it seem like a tribal war, a civil war, to derail the revolution and move it out of it's target
  • 7:31 - 7:39
    so our efforts abroad should be focused on two things
  • 7:39 - 7:45
    both in liberated areas and areas still not liberated
  • 7:45 - 7:50
    We can't let this chance go. We must carry on raising awareness
  • 7:50 - 7:57
    because in the end he is going. If they reach an agreement, his plane will carry ten or fifteen
  • 7:57 - 8:03
    and the others will stay. The Libyans will stay, and will live together on this earth and he will go.
  • 8:03 - 8:10
    There is no discussion about this. So we don't want any kind of his traps remaining.
  • 8:10 - 8:16
    We need to keep the contacts going so the revolution is not derailed from its goals
  • 8:16 - 8:25
    which are setting up a democratic country, freeing the land totally, a country of insititutions and law
  • 8:25 - 8:31
    and social justice, a Libya for all. Law, that's it.
  • 8:31 - 8:41
    Racial or tribal labelling must end. Our origins should be geographic - from this city or that.
  • 8:41 - 8:45
    We don't have a loyalty other than to this country.
  • 8:45 - 8:49
    We will be victorious and we will be rid of this mentality.
  • 8:49 - 8:56
    In Libya or abroad, we have to work for Libya because we will live in it, and it is our children's future
  • 8:56 - 9:00
    We must think about this and work for this.
  • 9:00 - 9:03
    Don't say I have no role or no part to play.
  • 9:03 - 9:11
    Don't just try and give up. Keep going. Because when we're all working from abroad
  • 9:11 - 9:18
    and keeping the pressure on those who have people in the army
  • 9:18 - 9:24
    we will be victorious and we will make his chances dwindle
  • 9:24 - 9:32
    Because as the ring tightens he will be more...
  • 9:32 - 9:39
    as they say the dancing of the slaughtered
  • 9:39 - 9:46
    So we ask God to protect Libya, and that we can do something to help.
  • 9:46 - 9:49
    We ask God to protect our terrorized children
  • 9:49 - 9:55
    who have been cut off from their education and from everything, and are in constant terror
  • 9:55 - 10:01
    God protect them and terrorize those who terrorized them
  • 10:03 - 10:06
    But victory is near God willing
  • 10:06 - 10:10
    All this doesn't break the people's will
  • 10:10 - 10:15
    Especially when their cause is just in God's eyes, to lift injustice from the people
  • 10:15 - 10:18
    and to create a country of justice and equality
  • 10:18 - 10:22
    God willing we will be victorious and our will can't be broken
  • 10:22 - 10:33
    God willing the Libyan people will bind their wounds and live in peace and unity
