Response To Dr. Sulaiman al-Faitouri's Article

Ref.: Article by Dr Sulieman Al-Faitouri (December 29th, 2005)

Dear Sir

The recent article by Dr Sulieman Al-Faitouri (Dec. 29th) went beyond the boundaries of normal political debate. It was a cheap personal attack on Sheik Ben Ghalbone, a man with a long history of complete commitment to the Libyan case. I cannot imagine why Dr Faitouri found it in himself to write in such an inappropriate (actually disgusting) style about an honourable man who spent the last 24 years serving the Libyan case and correcting the damage done to its history.
It is quite reasonable to assume that the writer composed his article in an excited and pointless support of Sayyid Emir Mohammed al-Sanousi. The writer was gravely misinformed, does not know his client well and, deliberately or otherwise, is determined to destroy his aspirations for good.
I will not give the writer the satisfaction of correcting his information. I will of course join the decent commentators who immediately wrote to condemn the article.
I have had the pleasure and indeed the honour of knowing and accompanying Sheik Ben Ghalbone since the mid-seventies. The writer was critically wrong on numerous counts and his vulgar language must be rejected in the strongest terms. This standard has no place in our political debate. It should be rejected by all.
