find difficult to understand And I never mentioned ISIS in my post that got you up on your high horse never mind endorse them In thinking about possible Libyan resistance to foreign intervention they did not really spring to mind as they are probably weaker than most of the other armed groupings in the country And it is unlikely that they would take part in a broad resistance to foreign occupation as the other groups in Libya as in Syria really dislike them and have fought them on a pretty much regular basis The Abu Salim Martyrs Brigade and others for example expelled them from Derna I don t support ISIS in Iraq or Syria today though I can understand that many Sunnis in Iraq look on it as protection from Shiite ethnic cleansing and even Kurdish but I did support the armed Iraqi resistance

is it Going A report from ISIS controlled Sirte MISRATA Libya Behind dark curtains in a hidden alleyway for three days the family and friends of Milad Aburgeeba gathered to mourn for the man whose crucifixion last month in a public square offers a glimpse of the brutality of life and death in Islamic State controlled Sirte Milad was 41 He was married two years ago and only a year ago he became a father to a wonderful child Ibrahim Milad s cousin told Middle East Eye Then some IS men took him one morning from his home and accused him of spying And then they crucified him In the aftermath of the 2011 Libyan revolution the home city and final bastion of long time Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had slipped into a lawless power vacuum from which the Islamist militant group Ansar al Sharia emerged to restore order Despite Ansar al Sharia being blamed for the killing of Chris Stevens the American ambassador in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi in 2012 many in Sirte had initially viewed the group positively After the revolution in 2011 our city was abandoned by everyone It was as if Sirte alone was paying for its history We were tarnished said Ibrahim who eventually fled Sirte to Misrata with his family last August The only people who helped us were the men of Ansar al Sharia They were Salafis and extremists but they helped us They patrolled the streets and carried food water and aid for our children in the schools But that changed in March last year when Ansar al Sharia s local leaders publicly declared their allegiance to IS Black flags began appearing everywhere and there were parades of pickups through the city said Mohammed another of Milad s cousins They began to loot houses and abduct people and banned women from leaving the house and forced the girls to marry their soldiers Residents passing through checkpoints originally set up in and around the city by Ansar al Sharia for the purpose of checking documents now faced the threat of kidnapping and extortion by IS s balaclava clad foot soldiers On his mobile phone Mohammed showed MEE an image of a hooded body hanging from metal bars which he said showed the crucifixion of his cousin on 16 January Milad was a good man and he wanted to chase them out he said He had fought in the revolution and was a member of the Sirte Security Council He was one of first to report that among IS ranks there were also former men of Gaddafi so they punished him They killed him on his wedding anniversary In Misrata the number of people displaced from the east of the country is growing every day with about 5 000 families already seeking refuge in the city Fertile ground for jihadists At a warehouse set up by the local authorities to distribute food and medicine people queue from early morning until late afternoon for dates and milk One man who gave his name only as Hafed told MEE he was too afraid to talk about what was happening in Sirte There are many families left there who cannot run away including some of my relatives and if IS sees my face or reads my surname they could take revenge on them he said Hafed said that years of instability and violence had made IS more attractive to some young men The pain of the situation is not for men like me who have already lived some of our lives The real pain is for the men born in the 1990s like my son who are the most fertile ground for the jihadists Near to the warehouse MEE met a young man on crutches who described how he was kidnapped at an IS checkpoint while driving a fuel tanker We were driving along the road from the desert south of Sirte when we were stopped by armed men in balaclavas We immediately knew they were IS men said Saeed who declined to give his real name Saeed and his colleagues were taken to a prison where he said his captors were mostly Sudanese and Nigerians We realised they needed us because we represented a chance to get a ransom and they also kidnapped us because they needed the fuel he said But we were very scared Every day they came into the cell and there were questions about Islam and if we gave the wrong answers they would hit us We heard them kill a person in the cell next to ours I distinctly remember his screams After a month we were freed for a ransom They released us all and they also returned the bodies of three young soldiers from Misrata killed in Sirte Saeed is unsure who paid the ransom but believes his release may have been secured as part of a deal struck by the military authorities in Misrata to retrieve the soldiers bodies Today in Sirte smoking is prohibited women are obliged to be completely veiled and mobile phones are banned Leaving the house in the evenings is forbidden And since the local power station was destroyed communication with the outside world for those still inside the city has become almost impossible There was no food and now there is no more fuel Our beloved Sirte has become a ghost town said Mohammed But for many it is easier to stay succumb and be quiet because they have nowhere else to go Here we are crying for Milad but we are lucky because we are safe from those murderers See more at http www middleeasteye net news fr

Arabian Peninsula http www buzzfeed com borzoudaraga ya xb7re3BgwM A very useful article on post war libya It covers the economy the three Libyan governments ISIS and resistance to ISIS and has a photograph of some of the Special Forces arrived from the US Into this mess Islamist extremists started to seize territory gathering strength and eventually coalescing to form the Libyan branch of ISIS which declared itself in late 2015 and has since consolidated its power in Benghazi Derna Sirte and Bin Jawad Foreign fighters have joined them swelling ISIS s ranks to 5 000 with Libya providing an alternative destination for recruits unable to make their way to Syria or Iraq They are drawn by Libya s lawlessness and the world s largest supply of loose weapons a result of the bungled failure to secure the country after Qaddafi s death ISIS is now our top enemy said Ahmed Omran spokesman for the Reaction Force the most powerful security authority in Tripoli They re the most evil criminals we ve dealt with Even members of the Reaction Force many of whom themselves lean toward puritanical Salafi Islam have been stunned by ISIS s extremism They use very young people 16 year olds said Omran almost drifting into a trance as he described what the Reaction Force had learned about ISIS It s not the bearded guy with traditional clothes at the mosque ISIS is the guy who comes and sits next to you and smokes shisha and drinks tea and suddenly blows himself up It s the guy working out alongside you at the gym They get recruited by the internet this is what we re finding It s a very strange ideology Last edited by C Flower Today at 07 17 PM We cannot withdraw our cards from the game Were we as silent and mute as stones our very passivity would be an act Jean Paul Sartre Reply
