EU Hesitates to Widen War on Islamic State After Libya Bomb
1/7/16

European leaders are tentatively planning to send peacekeeping troops to back up the future government, the product of a power-sharing arrangement struck in December between two delegates of rival regimes on opposite sides of the oil-rich state. It is meant to be up and running within a week or two.
“The most likely scenario is that it will be a Libyan government which will intervene with the help of a foreign coalition,” said Arturo Varvelli, an analyst at the Milan-based Institute for the Study of International Politics. “No one wants to put boots on the ground, so any foreign coalition will be limited to small units for training and some special forces, there is too much anarchy out there.

EU Pledges 100 Million Euros to Aid Libya's Unity Government
1/8/16

The European Union's foreign policy chief has unveiled a 100 million euro ($109 million) aid package for Libya's fledgling unity government one day after an attack by a suicide bomber killed at least 60 policemen.

Federica Mogherini announced the aid deal Friday at a joint press conference with Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj in Tunis, the capital of neighboring Tunisia, where the unity government is temporarily based.

IS Foothold in Libya Threatens Europe, West Africa
1/8/16

Having a foothold in Libya could prove a significant boost to IS, both as a propaganda tool and in operational terms.

"It says, we can have a presence wherever we choose,” Widdershoven told VOA. “It is not up to NATO, Washington, or London or Brussels. If you want us out of Iraq, we will go to Libya, and if you come to Libya, we can move to Egypt or back to Iraq."

The closeness to Europe adds to the group's claims of an expanding caliphate.

A security official blamed "terrorists" for the attack.

"Howitzers were used in the attacks," said Captain Adnan al-Baba, a spokesman for a Libyan anti-terrorism squad.

He said for such guns to hit with precision "someone on the inside must supply the terrorists" with specific coordinates otherwise "it is impossible to target the power station".

The Council also urged Libyan parties to work swiftly towards the formation of the Government of National Accord "that will work for the benefit of all Libyans and the finalisation of interim security arrangements necessary for stabilizing Libya."

Underlining the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, the Council stressed that those responsible for these killings should be held accountable, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions to cooperate actively with all relevant authorities in this regard.

Islamic State in Libya: The power of propaganda
1/10/16

“We have Daesh [the Arabic acronym for IS] in our town, for sure,” said a senior official from al-Khoms - just 115km from Tripoli - who spoke to Middle East Eye on condition of anonymity. “They are small in number, but it’s like a snowball. They are targeting our youth now, and this is how they become strong.”

He said that propaganda DVDs were being surreptitiously distributed among young people.

“I have watched this film and it is like a promotional video designed to brainwash 15- to 25-year-olds. Believe me, if you see it, you can understand why people join Daesh,” he said. “I think they used professional psychologists because they know exactly how to affect the minds of young men.

A look at the source...

The Libya Herald

The Libya Herald first appeared on 17 February 2012 – the first anniversary of the Libyan Revolution. Since then, it has become a favourite go-to source on news about Libya, for many in Libya and around the world, regularly attracting millions of hits.

Our aim is to cover every aspect of society in Libya: politics, business, sport, culture, education, construction and infrastructure, health issues, social stories, opinions, jobs, events etc. Encouraged by growing interest in Libya, we printed our first publication the Libya Herald Supplement ‘Libya’s Investment Needs 2013’ in November 2012.

The movie, starring Newton native John Krasinski and Toby Stephens, will be released by Paramount Pictures on Jan. 15, less than a month before the Iowa caucus, an inopportune time for Clinton’s campaign, Jacobson said.

“This takes an issue that is not good for her out of her control and pushes it out into popular culture, which is much worse for her than having it discussed on cable news,” Jacobson said.

Re: Libya Updates 6/12/17
Who said Gaddafi had to go?
11/17/11

The overthrow of Gaddafi & Co was far from being a straightforward revolution against tyranny, but the West’s latest military intervention can’t be debunked as being simply about oil. Presented by the National Transitional Council (NTC) and cheered on by the Western media as an integral part of the Arab Spring, and thus supposedly of a kind with the upheavals in Tunisia and Egypt, the Libyan drama is rather an addition to the list of Western or Western-backed wars against hostile, ‘defiant’, insufficiently ‘compliant’, or ‘rogue’ regimes: Afghanistan I (v. the Communist regime, 1979-92), Iraq I (1990-91), the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (over Kosovo, 1999), Afghanistan II (v. the Taliban regime, 2001) and Iraq II (2003), to which we might, with qualifications, add the military interventions in Panama (1989-90), Sierra Leone (2000) and the Ivory Coast (2011). An older series of events we might bear in mind includes the Bay of Pigs (1961), the intervention by Western mercenaries in the Congo (1964), the British-assisted palace coup in Oman in 1970 and – last but not least – three abortive plots, farmed out to David Stirling and sundry other mercenaries under the initially benevolent eye of Western intelligence services, to overthrow the Gaddafi regime between 1971 and 1973 in an episode known as the Hilton Assignment.

At the same time, the story of Libya in 2011 gives rise to several different debates. The first of these, over the pros and cons of the military intervention, has tended to eclipse the others. But numerous states in Africa and Asia and no doubt Latin America as well (Cuba and Venezuela spring to mind) may wish to consider why the Jamahiriyya, despite mending its fences with Washington and London in 2003-4 and dealing reasonably with Paris and Rome, should have proved so vulnerable to their sudden hostility. And the Libyan war should also prompt us to examine what the actions of the Western powers in relation to Africa and Asia, and the Arab world in particular, are doing to democratic principles and the idea of the rule of law.

IS tried last week to seize export terminals in the so-called "oil crescent" of northern Libya, killing 56 people in two suicide bombings in Zliten and Ras Lanouf, east of Tripoli.

Libyan presidency council backs General Haftar
1/12/16

Haftar is, however, well known to have been against the new national unity government. Libya Herald noted that the statement was the strongest one of support yet and that it had been released on Monday to condemn recent heavy weaponry attacks in Benghazi against a major power station (the main source of electricity for the city and much of the wider area), a camp for displaced Tawerghans and a local factory. The statement said the attacks were ''failed attempts by the so-called Islamic State and "dark powers" '' and praised the sacrifices of LNA soldiers. It said that the army would be given the highest possible support once the UN Security Council revokes the arms embargo. Haftar, head of the armed forces of Tobruk, is at the very last wary of the agreement, as many observers have noted.
