Col. Muammar Gaddafi as we all know was found by the NTC and while they claimed he was killed in a firefight, videos that quickly surfaced all over the internet showed the truth. We were told that NATO forces bombed the cars that were fleeing and both Gaddafi and his son were able to hide in some local drainage pipes and were called out by the NTC. It showed Gaddafi being dragged and beaten while profusely bleeding for a while before taking a final death shot and putting him out of his misery.
Since the killing in October 2011, there has been many reasons surface as to why he was killed and the most popular reason has been the human rights issues that are extremely popular in the region among the Arab Spring countries. We watched our local politicians laughing about the killing and most people probably just figured it was the right thing to do for whatever reason.
The deal with Libya to save Italy
The thing about it is that Gaddafi actually had a special relationship with Italy’s prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.
On 30 August 2008, the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi signed a historic cooperation treaty in Benghazi. Under its terms, Italy would pay $5 billion to Libya as compensation for its former military occupation. In exchange, Libya would take measures to combat illegal immigration coming from its shores and boost investment in Italian companies. The treaty was ratified by the Italian government in 6 February 2009, and by Libya on 2 March, during a visit to Tripoli by Berlusconi. In June Gaddafi made his first visit to Rome, where he met Prime Minister Berlusconi, Italian President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano and Senate’s Speaker Renato Schifani.
Gaddafi also took part in the G8 summit in L’Aquila in July as Chairman of the African Union. During the summit a warm handshake between US President Barack Obama and Muammar Gaddafi took place (the first time the Libyan leader had been greeted by a serving US president). Later, at the summit’s official dinner hosted by President Giorgio Napolitano, US and Libyan leaders upset protocol by sitting next to Italian Prime Minister and G8 host Berlusconi. (According to protocol, Gaddafi should have sat three places away from Berlusconi
Berlusconi had several meetings with Gaddafi about this growing problem and Gaddafi had agreed to help curb all of the illegal immigration coming through the Italian borders.
The common wisdom among Italians is that Berlusconi has so much money he doesn’t need to resort to corruption. It could be true. The real corruption involved in Italian politics comes out of the Vatican — and no German accuser wants to tackle that one. But the media campaign against him, generally emanating out of Germany, has provoked a rightist backlash by Berlusconi and his followers.
Human right’s watch on the Libya-Italy situation
Intolerance towards migrants and minorities in Europe is widespread. Polling data from 2010 shows that a majority in eight EU states shared the view that there are too many immigrants, with as many as half concluding the same of Muslims.
Fears about loss of culture, terrorism, crime, and competition for economic resources all help explain rising intolerance in Europe. Europe’s current economic and financial crisis and resulting austerity is likely to exacerbate the intolerance.
Europe’s Muslims and Roma experience persistent hostility and discrimination across the region, as an EU Fundamental Rights Agency survey from 2009 showed. Undocumented African migrants face significant problems, including discrimination and violence. While individual attacks are common in the region, in some cases this has spilled over into mob violence, including in Italy (against African migrants and Roma), in Greece (against migrants), and in Eastern Europe (against Roma).
European governments have responded in ways that are deeply corrosive of respect for universal rights. Rather than emphasizing that Europe’s history has been shaped by migration, pointing to the many contributions made by minorities and migrants and forcefully condemning racism and intolerance, they have played on these fears.
Cultural and religious practices can of course violate human rights, and those who engage in discriminatory or abusive conduct must be held to account. But what is happening in Europe goes far beyond concern with the conduct of specific individuals.
The response has included blaming marginalized communities for the conduct of a handful of people (as with Roma in Italy); seeking to close Europe’s borders at the EU and national levels; restrictive and abusive asylum procedures and abusive migrant detention conditions (notably in Greece), with unaccompanied migrant children at particular risk; and in the name of integration, telling migrants (even second or third generation) that they must embrace majority culture, and if they do not, face sanction, or leave (in Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and elsewhere).
The destruction of the west by design
There are arguments from all ends, none of which make sense to , but the only legitimate argument that is actually legit is the mere fact that there was a reason that borders were created, there is a reason that cultures are highly differentiated, there is a reason for different languages, and as hard as it may sound to many is the fact that illegal immigration or mass illegal non assimilating immigration is for nothing other than destruction of the west by design. Multiculturalism does not and cannot work.
It forces locals to flee, it forces people to be tolerant, it is nothing less than full blown destruction, almost as if the tickets were bought and paid for first hand. I don’t have to explain it as it is going on everywhere in the west now since the last 2 elections of the left wingers.
Gaddafi was directly being a pain in the ass for leftists in the European Union that are for massive immigration. So coincidentally, just 3 years later NATO forces bombed the hell out of him and his family and turned him over to the newly created NTC that took over the reigns of Libya since the slaughter. Why was Gaddafi killed?
