Husien Al-Jedik: Another Libyan Martyr|
He was 25 years old, died in front of his family. Husien Souf Salem
Al-Jedik, the nephew of the late Khalil Al-Jedik, from Baniwalid Libya,
murdered by Gaddafi's agents in front of his house in cold blood on Sept.
13, 2002. The Gaddafi family escalated their attack and pressure on the city
of Benwalid recently for unknown reasons.
After the destruction of the grave of Mohammad Al-Zubidi, and detention of
scores of youth, The Gaddafi clan decided to destroy the houses of the
relatives of the slain officers of 1993, Jabhatul-Ingad attempted coup.
They sent bulldozers and heavy machines to Al-Jedik family houses in the
Al-Dhahra district of Baniwalid. This was faced with some resistance from
the local population. Husien Al-Jadik was there and when he refused to evict
his family home the fascist regime shot him in front of his mother and
siblings. He succumbed to his death immediately in a hail of bullets, may
Allah bless his soul and accept him in the heavens.
Husien was a brave young Libyan man. He stood strongly in the face of
Gaddafi' terror campaign. In 1996, Gaddafi tried relentlessly to persuade
the Baniwalid residents to carryout the killing of their children on his
behalf, and assigned The Brigadier Ali Alfaituri, to implement his orders.
This puppet forced hundreds of people to a series of gatherings. During one
of these meetings he started to despise the Officers by calling them names
and saying disgusting lies to minimize their status in the eyes of the
audience. Husien walked onto the stage towards this traitor, Ali Al-faituri,
and slapped him on the face. He spent one year in prison.
Brothers and sisters, the resilient town of Baniwalid has been under
constant terror since 1993, which has intensified recently. Some families,
as Al-Jedik and Al-Aihurie, have suffered enormous loss of their beloved
ones. Many families have been exiled and the Gaddafi regime has threatened
any other Libyan towns who dare to help them.
I Plead to all of you Libyan fellows, show some sympathy to those family in
anyway you like. I beg to stop at least the unrealistic appreciation to this
terrorist regime for releasing few Libyan hostages. We should act above the
regionalism mentality, and show some support to those families. This
psychopath thug does not spare anyone of us.
I was surprised at the silence of a lot of Libyan organizations such as human
rights groups and opposition parties. I could not hear the voice of
Jabhatul-Ingad, the group that Khalil and Ramadan belonged to. I am amazed
at the silence of a lot of good Libyan writers regarding the unfolding
tragedy of our beloved Baniwalid. I think the terrorist Gaddafi, has played
very well the "divide and rule" games. Brothers and sisters let us prove he
is wrong at least by praying together, May Allah help our beloved Libya and
accept Husien in his heavens.
