Post-Gaddafi Libya and the New South Africa 2012

What is being described in this article is so similar to the South African situation. (See my previous article Libya Predicting South Africa's Future).

In South Africa we also saw how the World, with the help of the media, forced South Africa into handing over the country to a terrorist organisation and then step aside, leaving the terrorists to murder white South Africans like flies.

Just in the past 72 hours at least 48 whites were murdered.

The difference between Libya and South Africa is that the media is waking up and splashing the human rights violations all over the news, while in South Africa they prefer blindness.

The media and the World do not have the guts or the decency to admit that they had made a grave mistake, as they now also did in Libya. While NATO was attacking Libya the media were cheering them on. When Qaddafi was executed the World and the media cheered and got drunk in the streets.

It was shocking how even white South Africans were so blinded by the media that even they supported NATO and even they cheered when Qaddafi was executed.

What goes around, comes around. Blacks in South Africa were cheering NATO and the execution of Qaddafi and now? Now blacks are being rounded up and executed by the rebels. Are SA blacks still cheering the criminal rebels that ousted Gaddafi?

South Africans have been suffering under the ANC Regime since 1994 and the World has remained quiet, by choice. The media is silent, for otherwise it would be an admission of guilt. The World has been trying to paint the New South Africa as a miraculous success where they had forced us to hand over the reigns to a terrorist organisation in the name of so-called democracy.

If the New South Africa is the World's definition of a peaceful transition and democracy then we can understand why the media and the citizens of the World are cheering the revolutions to the north, and we can understand why we are headed for World War 3.

When the New SA erupts in full-scale revolution next year will the World still support it, will South Africans still be cheering?

When we read in articles like the one below we get a glimpse of the New South Africa within the next year or two.

Op-Ed: Human rights in post-Gaddafi Libya no longer on Western agenda:

Tripoli - Western governments sent in NATO to either oust Col. Gaddafi, or to protect civilians, depending on how one interprets events. With Gaddafi in his grave though there is little interest in protecting civilians from the new breed of rebel vigilantes.

Amidst growing evidence of human rights abuses conducted by former NTC rebel fighters who now roam the country acting as vigilantes, Western governments concern over the safety of civilians appears to have waned. With Col. Gaddafi in his grave, the west apparently feels that the civilians that needed protecting from their dictator, are now to be left to the lawless devices of the rebels NATO supported.

Al Qaeda flags fly in Behghazi and women are to become an oppressed group under sharia law, but as long as Western interests are met, the governments that were so keen to oust Gaddafi have no care about the new régime they plan to deal with. This of course is hardly surprising as the West picks and chooses which governments with which it will deal, happily bowing down to the might of Saudi oil. The U.S. remains largely silent over the continued oppression of the opposition to the al-Khalifa régime in Bahrain. RT cites an interesting statement by Brian Becker of the ANSWER coalition who believes Libyan domestic policies will have no bearing on business as usual. He takes the example of Saudi Arabia, saying it is
"a dictatorship and not a democratic state, yet America is a big ally and a big supporter of Saudi Arabia. That just shows that we really don’t care if we’re working with democracies or we’re working with dictatorships. What we care about is our interests in the region."
Although several hundred pro-Gaddafi prisoners were released from prisons this weekend many blacks remain behind bars. Additionally the Libyan blacks from Tawergha are now displaced refugees living in fear. According to Libya 360 "there are about 27,000 Tawarghis scattered between Tripoli and Benghazi." They cannot return home due to the permanent threat from Misratans. Abdulkarim Rahman said
“Not only do they call us Gaddafists, they hate us for the colour of our skin. All blacks in Libya are going through very hard times lately.”
Hundreds of refugees walked to Tripoli to protest against the way they are treated. One woman told Libya 360 that women from the refugee camps have been abducted and raped by Misratans, who have also taken men away.There are more accounts of vigilantism towards Tawerghans here. Fred Abrahams of Human Rights Watch says
“There was a military action that caused this dramatic transition in Libya, [now] there is a responsibility to make sure the transition works. That means that the United Nations and governments that were active in the NATO campaign, Arab states, like Qatar, all of them have to be engaged in helping Libya.”(RT)
However helping to protect Libyan civilians takes second place to Western companies helping themselves to the spoils that war inevitably brings.
