hope and Army with the tribes .. 22/01/2015
The Libyan Tribes with the LIBYAN ARMY and the ‘tenderly’ forces of Ibrahim al-Jdharan (RED VALLEY & THE OIL GUARD INSTALLATIONS SERVICES), the Zintan former Brigades, Mu’ammar al-Qathafi’s PDF, and Hftar’s ‘dignity’...
They are all united in Libya, to rid Libya of the WAHABI / BROTHERHOOD
and their gangs of KHARIJITES….
and they are all subordinate to General Abdel Razek Nazdarwi:
the General Staff Chief of all Operations. It is considered now ONE LIBYAN ARMY.
A number of cities and tribes Libyan, announce their withdrawal from the ‘Supreme Council of the tribes’..and they are demanding the re-structuring of the formation of the ‘Supreme Council of the Libyan tribes and cities’.
Sheikhs and notables tribes Ajeelat announce their withdrawal
from ‘the Supreme Council of The Libyan tribes and cities’.
Sheikhs and notables ‘Tribe of Ma’dan’, and the sheikhs and notables of the ‘Tribe Khuwailed’ at Zaltan, announce their withdrawal from the ‘Supreme Council of the Libyan tribes and cities’.
Sheikhs and notables tribes of Tarhouna announce their withdrawal from the ‘Supreme Council of The Libyan tribes and cities’.
Replies from the Liberal:
Read the reasons for withdrawals from the ‘Supreme Council of the Libyan tribes and Cities’:
Deviation of the Council for the purpose and goal, which was established for him, where he had specific targets on 05/05/2011.
But recently began to exploit the name of the Council, including the use of the tribal name with the Libyan Army, during the “Airport War”, when the Zintan Brigades fought the Tripoli-MISURATA Brotherhood Militias, and was forced into a ‘treaty’ which was immediately broken by the Brotherhood Militias, who not only took the Airport from the Libyan Army, but all of TRIPOLI (setting-up their own Brotherhood controlled ‘government’).
Zintan is recognising ‘The Tribal Council’; and In another statement, the Council endorsed Hftar’s forces who joined the Libyan Army, and called JSK to
join him, and all the other forces who do NOT endorse NATO or the ‘Muslim’ Brotherhood.
This is contrary to what was established by ‘the tribes and cities Council’ (who stand only for a GREAT JAMAHIRIYA) apart from the Military Council of the Tribes and Cities (who endorse the ‘MAJLIS al-Nuwaab’ government at Tobruk and Casablanca under Abdullah Thani bending).
So many of the ‘Libyan tribes and cities’ (predominently with BANI WALID, first of the ‘LEAVING’), have decided to withdraw from it; and they, then to form another entity (the ‘Supreme Military Council of the tribes and Rishvana’
led by General Omar Tntosh), to achieve the goals which were deviated by the Board path.
LIBYA RAT NEWS:
Disagreement between the ‘organization DAASH’ (the Islamic state) and “Al Qaeda” in Libya on the recent postponement of allegiance to Baghdadi, and warns of a sheikhs “state” of clashes between the two, as what has occured in Syria and Iraq ..
(Oh God, your family, unjust oppressors and got us out of them unharmed.)
The Libyan military intelligence:
suspicious movements of strange packages on the Central Bank of Libya’s headquarters in Tripoli
I learned from the news agency of ‘the Libyan Army, sources of military intelligence’, that
‘Libya, on Thursday, was spotted suspicious movements of Wahabi-style groups hovering around the Central Bank of Libya’s headquarters in Tripoli;
and they have been monitored by continuous monitoring.
Noted the same sources, that this information, which is monitored by the elements deployed in the capital, comes at a time when feelings of fear increase with Libyans, on the remainder of their wealth and their money, and their assets ,especially what is still present in the ‘Central Bank of Libya’ in Tripoli, of a strategic stockpile of different currencies, bonds and bank gold bullion and precious silver .
Libyan intelligence sources said the fear that the organization “Daash” has been robbing on this stock, as happened in the Iraqi city of Mosul, when the armed groups of this organization robbed banks and looted the city’s funds and balances, to finance terrorist operations at home and abroad.
We stressed that, what is happening today in Libya, is not far from where it sees militias ‘Dawn Libya’ and armed gangs and militias Wahabi, are all allied in hijacking commercial banks.
and, they have looted funds that represent salaries and balances of citizens (as in the recent robberies at the ‘Republic Bank’ subsidiary in the Street “Alsreem” market on Tuesday,
and also, as happened by the robbery on the banks of the city of Sirte, which looted of all of its assets.

al-Qathafi Warns of economic sanstions on Bonn, concerning Plant Fire,
If West Germany was responsible for damage to Libya’s Pharmaceuticals facility.
16 March 1990|KIM MURPHY | TIMES STAFF WRITER
— Libyan leader Muammar al-Qathafi threatened Thursday to impose a blockade on West German manufactured goods, if that country helped to instigate a fire, at a ‘controversial’ Pharmaceuticals plant near Tripoli. He also, angrily denied that Libya had been producing any what-so-ever chemical weapons at the facility.
Although al-Qathafi stopped short of directly accusing West Germany of a role in the crippling fire. Hundreds of Libyan demonstrators massed outside the West German Embassy in Tripoli on Thursday, declaring that West German intelligence agents were responsible.
Asked whether the plant turned out ‘chemical weapons’, al-Qathafi repeated his country’s denials.
“If Libya could manufacture them, it would not have hesitated,” he said in a statement broadcast by Tripoli Radio. “However, Libya on its own, and by its own efforts, would need another 20 years to produce a ‘chemical bomb’ (even IF we desired to do so; but we do not).”
‘Reportedly’ al-Qathafi offered a multimillion-dollar contract “to anyone who could build a chemical factory for Libya.” (Shows the nonsense of this accusation; as al-Qathafi is not involved in financing projects from abroad in Libya. He has no authority in Libya, under the GREAT JAMAHIRIYA, to do so.)
al-Qathafi pointedly did not mention the extent of the damage from the Wednesday morning industrial fire at the plant near Rabta, about 60 miles southwest of Tripoli, where U.S. officials of the American CIA, have been spreading the false propaganda that the plant has produced deadly mustard gas and nerve gas ‘since last year’.
FALSELY ACCUSING LIBYA, the U.S. and Arab authorities said there are ‘indications that the plant, which Libya insists is used only to manufacture pharmaceuticals, was heavily damaged by fire, and Libya’s official news agency ‘Jana’ reported, “Most of the factory has been destroyed.”
On Wednesday, the Jana news agency had accused Israel and the United States of sabotaging the plant, but al-Qathafi’s subsequent statement targeted only West Germany. After more than 1,000 Libyan demonstrators marched outside the West German Embassy, a diplomatic source in Tripoli said the Libyans accused West German intelligence agents faking details about the plant’s design to the United States, implying that U.S. agents could then have sabotaged the plant.
“If the investigation under way confirms the involvement of West German intelligence in an action inside Libya, the economic presence of Germany will be eliminated from Libya,” al-Qathafi warned.
Demonstrators outside the embassy carried signs proclaiming “Germans Are Spies and Liars,” “Germans Out” and “Germany Down, al-Qathafi’s Our Leader,” prompting the Foreign Ministry in Bonn to summon a Libyan diplomat and complain about harassment of West German diplomats. Bonn’s embassy in Tripoli delivered a response denying any complicity in the fire.
“The accusation lacks reality, and . . . any suggestion that any German citizen or West German intelligence was involved (is) pure invention,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman said in Bonn.
Israel and the United States have also denied any involvement. U.S. officials acknowledged that Israel has both the capability and the motive to destroy the plant but said they had no information to link Israel to the incident.
U.S. officials said they have received credible reports that Libyan authorities arrested several suspects Wednesday on suspicion of involvement in the fire.
The U.S. government has made no secret of its opposition to the plant, and one U.S. official responded privately Thursday to news of the fire with the happy observation that “the ‘Force’ is with us.”
Official Washington reaction, however, was much more neutral.
“We don’t know the origins of the fire,” White House Press Secretary Marlin Fitzwater told reporters in Washington. “We don’t know if it was sabotage. We don’t have any idea who did it. . . . Somebody could have knocked over a kerosene lamp or something.”
In fact, “a lot of people” in the intelligence agencies believe that the fire was caused by an industrial accident, said one Administration official privy to intelligence reports on the issue. “They have had at least two” accidents in the past, the official noted, adding that “it would be consistent with the pattern.”
