To Um Abdallah|
You should be posing your questions and concerns to Mr. Sahad, because he
should publicly address what Ahad Abna' Al-Mahjar wrote. Until such time,
Mr. Sahad remains responsible for these comments, because as you have
illustrated it brings into light many contradictions and as a seasoned
politician Mr. Sahad should be aware of the cost of flip-flopping.
When it comes to Gadafi I see the situation as Black and White; President
Bush stated it correctly "either you are with us or against us". The speedy
fall of Sadam has erased the fears that the popularity of Gadafi will rise
as a result of an Iraqi resistance. So in the beginning of the war a
segment of Libyans sent conciliatory messages to Gadafi and after the speedy
fall of Sadam they changed their tone.
I have no interest in discrediting Mr. Sahad and I can assure you the Libyan
issue is much bigger than one man or a group.
