A comment on Ben Galbone's response to a speech
by the leader of the Libyan Jews in the United Kingdom

If the analysis by Sheik Mohammed Ben Galbone, The Chairman of the Libyan Constitutional Union, in his response letter to the head of the Libyan Jewish Community in the UK (which was published both in Arabic and in English in Al-Hayat newspaper, 9th Jan 06, and subsequently shown on this website, links below) is wholly or partly correct, the implications for the concerned parties and various stake holders are both great and grave. The analysis and weight of evidence provide more than just a strong argument or a hypothesis. The cited supporting evidence is overwhelming and terrifying (to us the Libyans) in the extreme. Given the nature and complexities of the case and the convoluted measures taken to conceal engineered scheme as naturally expected developments in a typical third world country, the analysis is as close as it can be to a straight and ugly series of facts laid bare.
According to the analysis in Sheik Ben Galbone’s letter, it transpires that the disastrous political events in Libya since the discovery of oil in the early sixties could well be engineered steps in a kind of an open conspiracy to eventually prepare the country for exploitation by the Zionist movement to meet its economic needs and further fulfil its political aspirations in the area. The 1969 coup d’Etat, it now seems decidedly plausible, was no more than a step in the series of contrived wrecking rounds to ruin the country’s economy, its infrastructure and its international reputation and prepare the ground for full exploitation. Put plainly the plan was, when it became clear that Libya’s desert hid vast amounts of oil, it was decided to make it ready for eventual take over as a resource. The process began by confusing its weak governments in the mid sixties, paint them and the society as anti-Semitic and facilitate mass exodus of the Libyan Jewish families with nothing more than a little possessions in a small suitcase and twenty pounds. The more drastic phase began with facilitating the crowning of the Colonel and letting him loose to reign supreme experimenting with weird ideas, squander the oil returns on completely worthless projects and demonise the population to strip away all traces of future sympathy and respect by the outside world.
There will not be many observers who never suspected that Libya’s mess is abnormal even for a consequence of a coup d’Etat. But it is still painful to suddenly now watch a live play of an open conspiracy for our country with the code revealed. It is as if the foreign language of a horror movie is suddenly switched to a comprehensible speak adding much to the impact of the frightening scenes.
The painted scene of the conspiracy feels painful for many reasons. The coup and subsequent disastrous years now appear much worse than once suspected and stretching Gaddafi’s time in power is a key element of the plan. The thwarted many attempts to dislodge Gaddafi from power suddenly include different possibilities to merely an efficient secret service surveillance that applied absolutely the precautionary principle. Outside the country, the systematic containment and eventual haemorrhaging of the energy of the Libyan opposition over the past 25 years could now be explained with greater simplicity that also explained the why part of the question. Along the way in haemorrhaging process, opportunities and manpower were wasted and the value of the Libyan Constitution as an opposition armour has been savagely compromised (alas by the help of many of the opposition notable figures).

Regrettably, the institutions of the biggest power on earth in our time, have been so completely recruited in the scheming of an unscrupulous and ruinous journey for Libya with the deliberate intent to wreck it and lay ready for taking.

At this point, in the light of what we now understand from the analysis in Sheik Ben Galbone’s article, it is reasonable to suggest that concerned parties will (should) find it difficult to avoid taking clear stands. Most must think that something should be done to divert this evil plan or at least slow it down a bit in the hope that the wind of international events may become in our favour. It is not expected that Colonel Gaddafi will be moved by the realisation that the 1969 coup d’Etat was no more than a planned step in a series of contrived wrecking rounds to bring the country to its knees. No change is anticipated here.
However, the rest of the Libya opposition and the Libya Jews come to mind as parties with potential influence and certainly with major interest in the case. If past experiences are taken as indicators, the former party will probably find plenty of time to debate various aspects of the issue (after several years of time delay of course) to invent alternative understandings and definition of key aspects. The syndrome of “not invented here” will divert attention away from the case. There is little hope of any other course of action remotely relevant to taking the case forward and perhaps making it at least a little difficult for scheme to advance further at its present speed.
However, the Libyan Jews are a party to the Libyan case now in a distinctive and unique new way. In addition to suffering the loss of a country, home and normal living like the rest of us, they, it is now obvious, were deliberately expropriated to build a case of mal treatment and anti-Semitism against the old Libyan government. Whatever loyalties the Libyan Jews may entertain, it will presumably be difficult for their leaders not to ask some hard questions. Unlike any other community or grouping of Libyan origin, they are the only party who at present have the ears of just about everyone who matters in this case. The choice of whether to continue accepting being (inadvertently) an element of the plot or, as invited in Sheik Ben Galbone’s letter, join forces with the Libyan Constitutional Union and press for an enquiry into the case to expose its hideous origins and shame those who cruelly engineered it and save the country’s independence, must be a difficult one.
One is talking about a country and a home in the grips of merciless planners who will not relent and nothing else matter, not even it seems, the Libyan Jews. This should overcome any inhibitions of becoming involved as Libyans with a clear stand to save the country while there is a little chance left (very little).
