There is no doubt that Muammar Gaddafi was a scoundrel and a tyrant. But when he was in power, Libya was not the hotbed of jihad that it is now.

In a statement aired on Khalifa Haftar-owned TV channel “Libya Al-Hadat”, a group of tribesmen from Jawazi tribe said they are monitoring “Italy’s endeavors to set up a colonial base in Libya” and they are ready to raise “the flag of Jihad” against what they called “the fascist colonial state of Italy.”
“We are ready for Jihad alongside other honorable tribes against Allah’s enemies.” They claimed.

They said despite presence of an UAE base in eastern Libya and the military aid he receives from the UAE, Egypt and France, the warlord accuses his opponents with fake charges such as loyalty to Qatar, Turkey and Italy to stir up public opinion.
A military source said Haftar is seeking with the help of his foreign allies (UAE, Egypt and France) to control the Libyan army, oil resources and the Central Bank of Libya, but he has failed so far due to foreign refusal….
