Gaddafi’s son aims for comeback in Libya

Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, is preparing a comeback in Libyan politics after spending six years in prison, the Guardian reported on Wednesday. He claims to be leading a military campaign against terrorist groups around Tripoli.

According to a spokesman for Gaddafi, he is inside Libya. “Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi is committed to his word, which he gave to all Libyans in 2011, when he said that he will remain in Libya to defend its territory or die a martyr for it,” he explained in a written statement supplied through a US contact. “The forces who fought in Sabratha against [Daesh], the gangs of illegal immigrants and the oil-smuggling mafias were mainly members of the tribes who support Saif Al-Islam, and those who were part of the former Libyan army, also loyal to Saif Gaddafi.”

Gaddafi, who studied in the London School of Economics, is known as a moderniser, said the Guardian. He is currently accused of ordering the killing of protesters during the 2011 revolution, which ousted his father. However, it is unclear whether Gaddafi himself has actually fought against terror groups because most of the latest battles were carried out among tribal militants who fought to control smuggling routes.

Monitors of the situation in Libya are not sure whether he would be able to mobilise enough supporters to be a real threat to Tripoli.

    What a typical racist and stupid Zio Guardian article; labelling falsely the great late Pres. Gaddafi a ‘dictator’, whilst ignoring the most vicious murder of Pres. Gaddafi by TERRORIST NATO/ISrael! So, why is this media parotting such a Zionist article against one of the greatest Palestinian freedom defender, Pres. al-Gaddafi? Is this media being infiltrated by MOSSAD agents?!

      BRAVO Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi!

      Why the ZioNa*i NATO/CIA-MOSSAD-MI6 agents raped/tortured and murdered one of the greatest Arab-African Independence leader, the late pro-Russia and Anti-Western/ISrael Imperialism, President Col. Muammar al-Gaddaf?!

      President Gaddafi’s great contribution in founding the African Union in 2002, and later on, influencing it further towards greater African Unity under pan-Africanism movement that include the gradual setting up of a single gold-backed African currency by 2028 (especially Petro-gold based currency) and the planned contribution of Libyan Government under President Gaddafi to the creation of the African Investment Bank, the African Monetary Fund and the African Central Bank – in order to challenge the IMF and World Bank – were also regarded as massive threats to ZNWO (thus is why $30 billion Libyan Government asset was then frozen by the evil Obama robber regime just before the murderous Terrorist NATO’s invasion.).

      And. also, which has deceived the world so cunningly, is that actually the Arab Spring began in December 2010 – right after the very important Five-party Arab Summit in mid 2010 as led by President Gaddafi, towards strengthening Arab/Islamic Unity and the strengthening of the Arab World’s relationship with Russia under President Gaddafi-led Arab League – thus the evil ZNWO (ZioNazi New World Order) under CIA/MOSSAD, then created the Arab Spring, in December 2010!

      From the Arab Spring, among the great leaders toppled from the Five-party Arab Summit are the late President Ali Abdullah Saleh (including the suspected savage attempt by CIA/MOSSAD to murder him in 2011, by a bomb planted in his Residence; and now murdered by the MOSSAD-infiltrated Houthi’s movement), President Ghaddafi (murdered so savagely by NATO and sodomized by MOSSAD agents) and Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak.See –
