Response To M. el-Jahmi

Dear Sir,

The more I read your recent exchange regarding Mr. Ibrahim Sahhad, the more convinced I become that your intention is to mislead, rather than clarify. Your core assumption is that Sahhad and others are trying to "reconcile" with the regime. Such an assumption is not based on a direct quote from Sahhad, as one would expect from a genuine inquirer, but rather it is based in its totality on the quotes of someone else. I fail to understand how it is possible to pass a judgement on someone, (a favorite hobby of Libyans by the way), for the interpretations and sayings of another person (Ahad Abna' Al-Mahjar)?
Quoting Ahad Abna' Al-Mahjar exactly changes nothing and in fact posting such quotes a thousand times will never mean that Sahhad made the remarks Ahad Abna' Al-Mahjar claims he did. You should take the issue with Ahad Abna' Al-Mahjar directly since these were his words. If you are interested in exploring Mr. Sahhad's views, you need only contact Mr. Sahhad directly to clarify his position on the issue. What you seem so adamant about doing, however, is attacking and attempting to discredit Mr. Sahhad and perhaps the Libyan opposition at large.

Let's assume for the sake of argument that Mr. Sahhad said what Ahad Abna' Al-Mahjjar purported him to have said. Does this not contradict the facts on the ground? If the goal was to reconcile with Qaddafi's regime, why was there a need for Sahhad and others in the NFSL to refuse dialogue with Qaddafi over the years? Why was there a need to resign from their positions and lead a life on the run for the cause of fighting Qaddafi and his thugs? Why was there a need to lose loved ones at home and abroad gunned down by Qaddafi's agents? Why was there a need to create the NFSL to begin with? These are elementary questions, to which the answers seem quite obvious, that is in case you are interested in pursuing the truth.

Um Abdallah
