HOLOCAUST IN LIBYA


"As many as a quarter of Libya's people died, many of disease and starvation in concentration camps, during three decades of Italian ... colonial rule."
(The Arab uprisings: Endgame in Tripoli The Economist)

"Italy ruled Libya from 1911 to 1943 ...

"During this period ten of thousands of Libyans died, many of them in the concentration camps built by Italians or by chemical bombs."

(European colonial memory on sell: Italian-Libyan agreements and ...)

"Italy 'occupied' Libya, erecting concentration camps dedicated to killing Libyans, lagers-gulags, setting an example for those in Germany and Russia, killing and destroying at will.

"More than 100,00 people ended in the primal concentration camps where many thousands died in squalid condition, chiefly through starvation or disease, perhaps one third of the Cyrenaican population."

(Libya Payback: The Price Of Colonialism By Gaither Stewart)

In 1960, Libya's income per person was $35 per year.

In 1966, "On the outskirts of Tripoli, Benghazi and Tobruk have grown up squalid Bidonvilles where thousands of Bedouins, attracted from the desert by the lure of the city, live in houses made of shipping crates and lift vans, vainly waiting for wealth to come to them." (Libya: Peanuts to Prosperity - TIME )

Gaddafi changed things, giving Libyans free housing, schooling and health care.

BUT, after the 1969 coup, Gaddafi closed American and British bases and partially nationalized foreign oil and commercial interests in Libya.

The Anglo-American-Israelis have always wanted Gaddafi toppled.

Now they seem to be organising a new holocaust.

Thank you Aangirfan. There are some brave souls that are prepared to voice opinions contrary to the barrage of ‘evil tyrant’ stories levelled at the man.

We mere ‘people’ will never know the true story of that fractious nation. Yet another pit stop on the road to perdition.

I can only imagine what it would be like under the "Jersey Shores, South Beach" crew in charge of Libya. Alexander Rothstein is alright says Glenn Beck of Fox News, he is just taking a bad rap.

Great stuff, I didnt know about the Libyan holocaust, shame to me! Im curious to find out the ethnicity of those behind the Libyan genocide/concentration camps/Italian colonizatin of Libya. Many Italian Jews among them maybe? That wouldnt surprise me at all.

This is an Arab video about Arab traitors. No Gaddafi here. I just tend to feel like there are bigger fish to fry, as far as evil dictators go! Why all the brouhaha over Gaddafi? Muslim Arab writers are falling over each other to write something about bad ol' Gaddafi. Even Hasan Nesrallah. But even if we don't know as insiders, could Gaddafi be worse than those Arab pig leaders? I don't think so.
