Leading From Behind in Libya's Aftermath: Sharia Law and Al-Qaeda's Flag | Death and Taxes
So the reason Obama states for overthrowing Gaddafi is because of human rights? I wonder how women in Libya will feel about their rights under Sharia law?(In Libya) For the last 42 years things were decided from the top down, and now the populace — many of whom have never voted — are faced with a challenge.
This has led to what is making “leading from behind” suddenly seem like a sticky strategy. Fundamental changes have occurred since Gaddafi’s death eight days ago. Sharīʿah law is now in place, which means discrimination against women, Islamic banking law, which prohibits banks from earning interest, and a host of other measures large and small.
“Any law that violates sharia is null and void legally,” said interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil on Sunday. He then cited an example of restrictions on polygamy, which, for his evil, Gaddafi’s regime is responsible for passing.
Al-Qaeda’s flag is now flying next to the Libyan one at the courthouse in Benghazi where the revolution began. (There are multiple pictures that support this claim.) The flag’s message, “There is no God but Allah,” is definitively not copacetic with the American government.Yahoo news reports that “Libya’s Islamists are a rising force in the country’s political arena, some of whom, such as Abdelhakim Belhaj, the founder of the Al-Qaeda linked but now-disbanded Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), are expected to hold prominent positions.”
Oh my god an Al Qaeda flag! This must mean that the new government will become just some extreme form of Sharia law!

the CIA, Saddam and other members of the Baath party collaborated to bring about the coup, murdering perhaps 5,000 people in the process. The United States went on to help Saddam win the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s.
In early 1963, Saddam had more important things to worry about than his outstanding bill at the Andiana Cafe. On February 8, a military coup in Baghdad, in which the Baath Party played a leading role, overthrew Qassim. Support for the conspirators was limited. In the first hours of fighting, they had only nine tanks under their control. The Baath Party had just 850 active members. But Qassim ignored warnings about the impending coup. What tipped the balance against him was the involvement of the United States.
these things and your pic and other pics founded in internet are not smth new which can suprise us at all.
Prison Planet.com » Al-Qaeda Commander Ordered Sharia Law In Libya
So much for democracy, "by the people" in Libya.However, the move to implement Sharia law was not a decision made by the NTC, reports Israeli intelligence source DebkaFile, it was ordered by Abdel Hakim Belhaj, the former Al-Qaeda commander whose Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, with the aid of NATO’s bombing campaign, now controls strategic areas of the country.
It was generally believed in Tripoli that the strongmen ruling the capital, Abdel Hakim Belhaj, ex-al Qaeda, and Ismail and Ali al-Sallabi, heads of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, only granted Abdul-Jalil’s wish for a big liberation rally in Benghazi after he agreed to declare the new Libya a Sharia state.
But after the grand celebration is over, DEBKAfile’s sources report, the transitional leader will be little more than a figurehead. Even now, he is confined in Benghazi by the three strongmen, who control most parts of the capital, and have not given him permission to move the seat of the interim government to Tripoli.
