Israel Intervenes in Libya... for Gaddafi

50,000 mercenaries to be deployed against rebels; Al Qaeda Fighters Included in Israeli Force.

(CINCINNATI) - In a move that surprises all but Middle East experts, Israel has promised Libya’s dictator of over 40 years, Colonel Gaddafi, 50,000 troops to aid in crushing rebels set on overthrowing his his murderous rule. According to news sources inside Israel, “troops” are being hired across Africa, Uganda, Sudan, Chad and the Central Africa Republic, including Al Qaeda fighters, to be deployed against demonstrators and rebel forces currently involved in heavy fighting in a two week old attempt to overthrow the Libyan ruler that has left thousands dead.

In the last 72 hours, rebel leaders have been in contact with Britain and the United States, nations that have promised aid and have positioned forces in the Mediterranean for a decisive strike against Gaddafi. Additional US Marines have been sent to reinforce assault teams on the USS Kearsarge, a helicopter assault ship now stationed off Tripoli awaiting orders to begin operations.

Libyan airspace is currently open as are her ports, slated for the scheduled influx of military support from Israel, a clear violation of UN sanctions.

Oil exports from rebel held areas have resumed though oil prices continue to spike, threatening the American economy.

Though Israeli advisors and intelligence personnel have been on the ground in Tripoli for some time, there are questions as to whether the Gaddafi’s regime can hold on until substantial aid arrives, particularly in light of increasing pressure for a US strike, widely called for, bringing Gaddafi’s rule to an abrupt end. Sources in the region tell us;

“Israeli military advisors have been “in place” since the first and Mossad teams who have long used Libya as a base of operations in Africa are working to “decapitate” rebel leadership.”

With American and British forces at the ready and a possible strike eminent, the American military community has expressed concerns about the potential of another “Somalia” disaster. Though American amphibious forces may represent a credible threat to Gaddafi, the actual potential for any American ground deployment in Libya is remote. However, an air action against command and control centers in Libya is much more likely.

Support for such a strike has been growing across the Middle East after initial concerns about US involvement in the oil rich nation.


Despite his outward image as an Arab nationalist leader, Gaddafi has maintained close ties with Israel since his takeover of Libya in a military coup in 1969. That friendship, “strange bedfellows,” has finally come to light, one of the many “closeted partnerships” between Israel and Middle Eastern dictators that were exposed by Wikileaks.

Gaddafi, a Marxist, was himself the subject of a coup planned by British SAS founder David Sterling early on. Sterling was shocked when ordered to stand down, being told that Gaddafi was, though a communist, under the protection of both the United States and Israel.

Though, for decades, the western press has depicted Gadaffi as a staunch enemy of Israel and Zionism, the two nations have shared covert projects that can be traced as far back as the early 1970s. A consortium of “rogue” states, Iran under the Shah, apartheid South Africa, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Gaddafi’s Libya and Israel sold arms, developed weapons technologies and operated a network of spies, particularly inside the United States, keeping the Soviet Union abreast of NATO military and intelligence secrets and defense plans.

Of the original “Axis of Evil,” only Libya and Israel remain.


Libya, in partnership with Israel and the former apartheid regime in South Africa, began developing chemical and germ warfare capabilities. These WMDs were used by the South African forces in Angola and elsewhere, thousands died. Libya funded one of the largest chemical and biological weapons programs in the world, rivaling the former Soviet Union in size, a program thought to be in place as late as 2004. During the same period, a year after the American invasion of Iraq to end a WMD program now proven non-existent, Libya, with Israeli help, developed a nuclear capability and is said to control several “Hiroshima” style weapons, uranium based fission devices.

As part of this combined program, South Africa built 10 nuclear weapons at their Pelindaba facility between 1975 and 1980.

The three nations performed one successful weapons test, an 18.2 kiloton uranium weapon on September 22, 1979 on Prince Edward Island in the seas north of Antarctica. This test was observed and verified by both US and Soviet nuclear intelligence services and a “weapons signature” was developed. South Africa ended its program in 1990, shipping 6 of the remaining weapons to the US for dismantling. Three were sold and then transferred to British control and eventually shipped to Oman but disappeared in transit.

One of these weapons exploded in North Korea in 2009, their only successful nuclear test. Two are missing.

In March, 2004, we are told by informed sources in Britain, Prime Minister Tony Blair made an “emergency” flight to Libya to meet with the Libyan leader, assuring him he would not be facing the fate of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, who had been captured only a few months before by American forces and was awaiting trial.

It is believed that one of the subjects discussed by Blair was the “possibility” that Libya possessed the two missing weapons from South Africa, weapons Britain had failed to recover.

Blair left that meeting with a $200 million oil contract for Royal Dutch Shell and an undisclosed long term agreement between Libya and BAE Systems, a British defense contracting firm. There were no reports of what Gaddafi offered Blair in return. Some claims were made that Libya had agreed to end its nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs but these reports, though widely circulated, are both unsubstantiated and unverified.

Now Libya is threatening its population with chemical and biological weapons with more possibly on the way from Israel.

Blair has remained an ardent supporter and defacto spokesman for the Libyan “strongman” since being forced to leave office in 2007.


This could be the first face-off between the US and Israel in the region since the USS Liberty attack in 1967. During that “incident,” Israeli air and sea forces attacked a lightly armed American naval vessel killing or wounding 201 of 296 crew members. American sailors repulsed Israeli attempt to seize the vessel and its crew. USS Liberty survivor, Phil Tourney reports that Israel surveillance planes had tracked the clearly marked American vessel for several hours before the attack Tourney describes as “murderous.”

USS Liberty, torpedoed, rocketed, napalmed, bombed, strafed, proud and afloat.

“Israel still has a life raft from the Liberty, one they had strafed from gunboats who were also firing on fire and rescue personnel, on display in Tel Aviv as a “war trophy.”

Though the crew of the USS Liberty is the most decorated in US Naval history, until recently all were sworn to secrecy and threatened with imprisonment for revealing the details of the Israeli assault.


President Obama used his first United Nations Security Council veto to stop a move toward citing Israel for humanitarian violations against its Palestinian population. In fact, the United States has vetoed UN resolutions calling for humanitarian reforms by Israel and has done so dozens of times.

Now Israel has become militarily involved in Libya, directly against US policy and UN prohibitions and has done so, oddly protected in these acts by the United States and its “ever so reliable” Security Council veto of any move to modify Israeli behavior.

Libyan civilians may well, in days to come, be facing Israeli weaponry and even troops, as have the people of Gaza.

Now American Marines may well be facing that same fate.

So we at war with 50,000 Isrialay troops in Libia??

Stephen March 21, 2011 6:40 pm (Pacific time)

Seem just like yesterday when President Jefferson sent our Marines to "the shores of Tripoli." Not much has changed I guess. So if the tyrant Leader pulls back from getting his armour and troops exposed to jets and missiles, and the rebels have no one to train and arm them and attack whomever, then what a waste. Seems that "troops on the ground" will be needed someday. I read that Obama had a big list of coalition members for this war attack, but recall Bush had twice as many, and 17 more UN Resolutions. Ummmm... Politics sure get a lot of people killed!

Western forces implementing UN Sec Council Resolution 1973 and Israeli policy, as being implemented by the deployment of 50,000 black African mercs, are not at all in conflict. There are no bombing raids by western air forces on Ghaddafi targets at all, save a minimum necessary to be sacrificed for the nightly news, where we saw a motley collection of a tank, a supply truck, a mobile anti aircraft unit and some buses in convoy, all destroyed. My own feeling is that these vehicles were put into position and the drivers of them walked away pending some well aimed ordnance from the air. Of the vehicles in the convoy the buses were just on fire, they didn't look disintegrated like the tank was, considering that air to ground missiles supposedly took the busses out in the same way they took the tank out, and the military is very much into overkill. I would say that the supposed rebel irregulars doing excited victory gestures at the scene were likely Ghaddafi's men dressed as rebel irregulars. How do we know that they weren't a bunch of Mossad guys looking like Arabs setting up a movie set ? In support of the thesis that there is no conflict between western and Israeli policy on the ground in Libya, we see Anita McNaught of Aljazeera currently in Tripoli, bemusedly reporting, at night, a number of times already, into the camera that there is nothing going on except anti aircraft fire, the tracers of which arc the sky, aimed at no one knows what. Why are these gunners firing away like that at nothing ? Because Ghaddafi told them to. Why would he do that ? He knows the charade of UN Sec Resolution 1973 is for his benefit too, and so is playing his part for the tv theatrics, as both Israel and the western powers want dictatorships in all the Arab countries, the better thus to serve Israeli and western interests, as ever. True, both Israel and the west were caught out by the successful spontaneous uprisings in Tunis and Egypt, but have quietly vowed that the remaining dominos will remain standing ! Israel and the western powers mean to deliver Benghazi back to Ghaddafi from the rebels, but the difficulty for the western powers, always operating from high minded principles, ahem, will be how to keep their western publics from waking up to this carefully crafted ruse of actually delivering Benghazi back to Ghaddafi while themselves looking noble in defeat. And that's where the honorable profession of mass media journalism comes in. No irony there, of course.

And for whom was this monitoring for? So the US could feed intel back the Arab states, so to protect the interests of US Oil companies? Isn't that the REAL secret...........................

B=Dog March 17, 2011 7:23 pm (Pacific time)

Does the 100% disability include brain activity?? Israel ASSISTING Libya with 50,000 troops? Libya and Israel are enemies.

What was the USS Liberty (a SIGINT ship) doing off the coast of Israel during the Six Day War??

Could someone please explain that story for me??

Editor: The U.S. ship was off the coast monitoring the war because Israel was regarded as an 'ally' at the time.

Awww, you're offended. May I remind you as you forgot in your derangement that your article was about American lives in danger (as my question said, do you have any Israeli atrocities against US since 1967) but hey, mix in all the deaths since it's all about hating Israel anyhow. It goes along with the magic dust that automatically makes every Muslim hired by Qadaffi an Israeli agent as you allege in your first paragraph. After all, you say "Israel promised" so the magic dust comes out and makes every Qadaffi goon Israeli. I guess all those Somalians we fought were Israeli agents too. Go ahead, jump the shark and say the Somalians that killed Marines were Israeli agents. What's another lie to you anyhow?

Editor: We don't lie around here.

This is one of the funniest stories I have read in a while. I appreciate your service to our country and your comedy of twisting the truth for your convenience. Really, Israel is going to send 1% of their population to Libya to protect a man who they have no relations with? And do you have anything involving US and Israel since 1967. I mean, a lot of us on the internet have that being twice our lifetimes. Please show some current Israeli atrocities (excluding the American flag-burning Rachel Corrie).

Editor: Why don't you watch your mouth when you refer to the Martyr Rachel Corrie, what do you say?  Do you think her death wasn't important?  For God's sake she was like a saint from her childhood, when she dreamed of saving children.  What about Tom Hurndall?  What about the 1400 murdered during Cast Lead?  What about the refugees and the ongoing land theft?  Netanyahu is like the anti-Christ.  There is nothing to justify what Israel has done.
