Tears And Joy As Egyptian Christians Killed In Libya Laid To Rest


Tears mixed with joy on Tuesday as the remains of 20 Christians were laid to rest in Egypt’s Minya province more than three years after they were kidnapped and beheaded in Libya in an attack that provoked rare Egyptian air strikes.

The return of the bodies of 20 Egyptian Copts has brought families in rural Egypt a chance for some closure after years in mourning with little hope of having the bodies of their loved ones being recovered for burial.

“Everyone stood beside the martyr that belongs to him and cried a little, but they were tears of longing, nothing more,” said Bishri Ibrahim, father of Kerolos, one of the victims, at the funeral service at a church in the village of al-Our in Minya province, where they were all laid to rest.

“But we are happy and joyful that they have returned to the village. This is a blessing for the country and to all Copts all over the world,” he added.

Thirteen of the 21 Libya victims came from al-Our, a rural town of around 10,000 people south of Cairo.

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi ordered the Church, named The Church of the Martyrs of Faith and Homeland, to be built soon after the incident and dedicated in their memory.

Sisi also ordered a wave of air strikes on the Islamic State’s militant bases in Libya.

The remains of the victims, who were flown from Libya about a private jet to Cairo on Monday night, were placed inside cylinder-shaped containers covered in velvet cloth with the names of each victim and interred under the church altar.

Families said the burial place would be opened as a shrine for visitors.

The victims had been among the many poor Egyptians who risked their lives to find work in the lawless chaos of Libya following the downfall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and civil war.

A video posted by Islamic State in January 2015 showed 21 people — 20 Egyptian Copts and one Ghanaian Christian — lined up on a Libyan beach in orange jumpsuits before they were executed.

“I wanted to see Milad come back from Libya on his feet after his struggle and hard work to earn a living in a harsh life abroad,” 55-year-old Zaki Hanna, the father of one of the victims.

“But thanks be to God, he died a hero, did not beg anyone to spare his life and he and his brothers, the martyrs, did not abandon their faith or homeland.”

Bashir Estephanos, whose two younger brothers were killed by Islamic State in Libya, said all Christians in al-Our village had been praying for the past three years for the bodies of the “martyrs” to be found.

Libyan authorities recovered the bodies in October after the area where they were buried was recaptured from the militant Islamist group.

“Our prayers were answered, so thanks be to God from the bottom of our hearts,” he said, speaking before the bodies arrived in the village.

The head of the Coptic Church in Egypt, Pope Tawadros II, was at the airport to receive the remains when they arrived in Cairo on Monday night.

ዝምታው አይብቃንም እንዴ?! | European Governments Complicit in Horrific Abuse Of Refugees and Migrants

Posted by addisethiopia on December 13, 2017

ዝምታው ይብቃ!

የቅርብ ዘመዶቻችን ሊሆኑ ይችላሉ! አዎ! በክርስቶስ ወንድሞቻችንና እህቶቻችን ናቸው

እርኩሶቹ የዔሳው እና የእስማኤል ዘሮች የያዕቆብ ዘር በሆኑት ክርስቲያኖች ላይ እየፈጸሙት ያለውን አሰቃቂ በደል ሁላችንም እያየን ነው። ከዚህ የበለጠ ማስረጃ አለን? በአገራችን እርስበርስ ሲያባሉን፣ ባሕር ማዶ ደግሞ እየበሉን ነው። በፍርድ ቀን፡ አላየንም፣ አልሰማንም፣ አላወቅንም ማለት ፈጽሞ አይችላም፤ ሁሉም ነገር ተቀርጿልና።

ወደ አውሮፓ ማስገባት የፈለጉት በጥባጮቹን አረቦችና ሙስሊሞች ብቻ ነው፤ ክርስቲያን አፍሪቃውያኑን ያው በዚህ መልክ ይመነጥራሉ፣ የባርነቱንና የግርፊያውን ስዕል ደግሞ እንደ ማስፈራሪያ እየተጠቀሙ አፍሪቃውያኑ ወደ አውሮፓ እንዳያመሩ ይሻሉ፤ ሁለት ወፍ በአንድ ድንጋይ! እርጉም የዲያብሎስ ልጆች

ለመሆኑ፡ በአገራችንOil Libya” የተሰኘው ቤንዚን ማደያ እስካሁን አልተዘጋምን? ይህ ትልቅ ቅሌት ነው! እንደ አባቶቻችን „አረብ አረቡን በለው ወገቡን!“ ብለን ወደ መንገድ የምንወጣበት ዘመን ላይ እንገኛለን እኮ!

Not only are European governments aware of the “systematic abuse” and “appalling conditions” that migrants are exposed to by Libyan authorities, they are also involved in these crimes, Amnesty International has claimed in a recent report.

In an attempt to contain the influx of sea-borne migrants and refugees, the EU member states “actively” contribute to “a sophisticated system of abuse and exploitation of refugees and migrants by the Libyan Coast Guard, detention authorities and smugglers”, Amnesty International said on Tuesday.

Tortured. Raped. Sold.
Rescued? No.

Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants trapped in Libya are at the mercy of Libyan authorities, militias, armed groups and smugglers, often working seamlessly together for financial gain,” said Amnesty’s Europe Director, John Dalhuisen. An estimated 20,000 people are currently kept in “these overcrowded, unsanitary detention centers,” where “torture is rife,” the group reports.

Held in detention for three months, a man from Gambia told Amnesty about the suffering he endured: “In the center they don’t give food. They beat me with a rubber hose, because they want money to release me. They call the family while beating [you] so the family send money”.

Another man, from Nigeria, named “Victor”, described the fear he felt before setting off from Libya. “I had heard stories of Libyans arresting people at sea and taking them to prison, and from there asking them to call their families to make them send money; and stories of people who had died in the sea. But I feared Libya more; in Libya they treat anyone with a dark skin as an animal…”.

People are tortured.
People are raped.
People are sold.

The EU is “complicit in these abuses”, Amnesty claims, singling out Italy. The EU governments provide support to Libya, train and equip the country’s coastguard with boats and other assistance, and clamp down on rescue efforts by the NGOs, Amnesty reports, in ‘Libya’s Dark Web of Collusion’.

By supporting Libyan authorities in trapping people in Libya, without requiring the Libyan authorities to tackle the endemic abuse of refugees and migrants or to even recognize that refugees exist, European governments have shown where their true priorities lie: namely, the closure of the central Mediterranean route, with scant regard to the suffering caused”, Dalhuisen charged.

The European policies have proved efficient, resulting in a significant drop of sea crossings compared to last year’s figures and even to the first six months of 2017, Amnesty reports. While nearly 84,000 migrants arrived in Italy by sea in the first half of the year, some 33,288 disembarked there between July and November.

Meanwhile, 3,091 didn’t make it to the shore, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) statistics estimate.

Amnesty has urged the EU to “realize the horrific consequences of their policies of containment, recognize their unlawful nature, and reset their co-operation with Libya”, as well as to “enable people to get to Europe through legal pathways”.

The North African nation, ravaged by civil war, has turned into a launch pad for those fleeing persecution, war and poverty and making a perilous journey to Europe. The IOM identified more than 400,000 refugees in Libya, Amnesty says.

Newly Released Photos Show Horrific Massive Slavery Being Done in Africa by Islamic Racists


Horrific photos are coming from Africa, showing true slavery and exhibiting the horrific form of degradation of human life. These photos are from the African news source, Modern Ghana:

As we read from the African report from Modern Ghana:

Libyan authorities in Tripoli has launched an investigation into the alleged trafficking and sale of some African immigrants into slavery by an unknown militant group in the North African Nation.

In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tripoli copied the Head of Affairs in Ghana, Salah AL. Koy said, reports making rounds some on media networks and social media are yet to be confirmed.

Earlier last week, some horrific images and videos surfaced on social media followed by a report on CNN where some African immigrants were subject to various forms of abuses, chained and sold into slavery in the North African state.

However, the statement expressed its rejection and denunciation of such inhumane which are contrary to the culture and heritage of the Libyan people.

The ministry also confirms that what has been published in the media in this regard is under investigation by the concerned Libyan authorities.

And if these allegations are proved, all those involved will be punished and will confirm the investigation, prosecutions and legal punishment of all those involved in these heinous crimes.

In addition, the ministry expresses its full explicit commitment to the provisions of the United Nations in this regard and affirms its commitment to implement its national laws and legislation which criminalize human trafficking, slavery, and servitude”, the statement said.

Head of Affairs at the Libyan Embassy in Ghana, Salah AL. Kony assured the Libyan State government commitment to hunting down the perpetrators of the inhumane acts of prosecution. He also called on the Ghanaian media and the general public to assist them adequate information in that regard.

Meanwhile, Government of Ghana and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration is yet to comment on this issue.

Here’s How The International Criminal Court Has Become A Racist Farce


The International Criminal Court is a perfect example of how a necessary and well intentioned institution can become corrupt, farcical and useless when controlled by unipolar forces.

I am not here to claim that each of the nine cases involved innocent men. To put it mildly, none of the accused were angels. But since 1998, the world has seen an explosion of war crimes, almost all of which have flaunted the will of the United Nations and spat upon both the letter and spirit of the UN Charter.

One can look to the NATO led illegal war on Yugoslavia, the bombing of civilians in Afghanistan and Pakistan by western forces, George Bush and Tony Blair’s disaster in Iraq, Hillary Clinton’s pet project in Libya, the fascist war against civilians in Donbass and the American, Turkish, British, French and Belgian invasion and bombings of Syria, all of which run contrary to international law.

No one at the ICC has seriously looked into any of these war crimes, although they were vastly more devastating than anything which has recently occurred in sub-Saharan Africa.

What’s more is that the United States refuses to participate in the ICC and if a superpower isn’t part of the ICC, it’s a bit like trying to sell tickets to an official Rolling Stones concert without the presence of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.

There’s frankly more than a hint of racism to the ICC. It seems that the only non-black people to be tried in an international tribunal in recent memory have been Serbian men, who have their own separate court set up in The Hague, one which has ignored most crimes committed by Croatian, Bosnian and Albanian war criminals.

So if you are a black African or a Serb, then do not commit war crimes. But if you are anything else, the ICC and sister tribunals have more or less given you a get out of genocide free card. This has not gone unnoticed in Africa. Burundi and South Africa have withdrawn their support of the ICC and most recently, The Gambia has done so as well.

Sheriff Bojang, the Gambian information minister singled out Tony Blair’s war crime in Iraq being totally ignored by the ICC as reason enough for the poor African state to leave the ICC. Britain after all, is a full participant in the ICC, but Tony Blair continues to enjoy his freedom and to paraphrase the premise of George Galloway’s film on Blair, the former Prime Minister has made a ‘killing’ in the aftermath of his killings in Iraq and elsewhere.

The ICC’s uneven allocation of justice raises many questions. Whilst a war crime anywhere ought to be treated with utter seriousness, I cannot blame African countries for increasingly seeing the ICC as an organisation whose reach doesn’t go beyond Africa. Unipolarity in the world cannot coexist with international justice. The sooner people realise this, the better.

Libya’s Slave Auctions And African Genocide: What Hillary Knew

Posted by addisethiopia on November 16, 2017

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in “liberated” Libya, but CNN’s crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.

Though CNN’s footage and accompanying report is shocking, such practices have been quietly documented for years, and clear warnings were issued starting in early 2011 that Libya’s black as well as migrant population would be the first to fall victim at the hands of the Islamist Libyan rebels that NATO’s war empowered. From the outset critics of Western intervention in Libya loudly sounded the alarm of a genocide against black Libyans in progress committed by the very rebels the US, UK, France, and Gulf allies were arming – a fact so well-known that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was personally briefed and warned on the matter.

The Dangerous Myth of Gaddafi’s “African Mercenaries”

Among the foremost of these early critics at the time, Maximilian Forte, Associate Professor at Montreal’s Concordia University, published a 2012 book which exhaustively documented racially motivated crimes which came early and often during the armed uprising. His book, Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa, contains essential summary context laying out the role that international media played in 2011 and after, including CNN itself, in fueling the xenophobic campaign to scapegoat Libya’s over one million strong black population as “pro-Gaddafi mercenaries”.

According to Professor Forte:

Racial fear and xenophobia were at the very crux of the first public calls for Western military intervention, and were the basis for the first utterance of the need for a “no-fly zone” … The myth of the “African mercenary” was useful for the Libyan opposition, the NTC [National Transitional Council] and the militias, to insist that this was a war between “Gaddafi and the Libyan people,” as if he had no domestic support at all…

As Patrick Cockburn explained, the insurgents’ “explanation for the large pro-Gaddafi forces was that they were all mercenaries, mostly from black Africa, whose only motive was money.”

Gaddafi’s ‘pan-Africanist’ policies such as aggressive support for the creation of the African Union (in 2002), and a relatively open immigration policy allowing for the influx of sub-Saharan African migrants to work on Gaddafi’s massive building projects, stirred resentment and discontent within broader Arab Libyan society in the decade leading up to the 2011 war. This was the historical background which set the stage for the anti-Gaddafi rebels’ extraordinary claim that sub-Saharan “foreign mercenaries” were being used en masse by Gaddafi to target protesters (later proven false).

And these historic ethnic and racial dynamics were well understood by the US government long before official support to Libyan militant groups began – militants which were not only shown to have al-Qaeda links, but which declared “open season” on all black Libyans and migrant workers during the revolution. As the CIA’s own historical analysis of Libya’s internal dynamics spells out:

QADHAFI in 1998 adopted a decade-long pan-African policy that enabled large numbers of sub-Saharan migrants to enter Libya without visas to work in the construction and agricultural industries. Although sub-Saharan Africans provided a cheap labor source, they were poorly treated and were subjected to periodic mass expulsions. By the mid-2000s, domestic animosity toward African migrants

Similar to later developments in Syria, the media would uncritically echo whatever the “freedom fighting” rebels would feed it, thus this black foreign mercenary trope became an unquestioned reality spread from rebel propagandists to the Western public. Libyan opposition members even began claiming to be victims of wild attacks by roving bands of machete-wielding pro-Gaddafi blacks wearing tell-tale yellow hard hats – a symbol which also falsely began to be associated with “Gaddafi’s savage mercenaries” – resulting in subsequent mass arrests and executions of innocent black migrant construction workers.

CNN Spread the “Black Mercenary” Lie

The end result would of course be the widespread targeting and scapegoating of an entire ethnic population within Libya. This is demonstrated, for example, in the most well-known example of Tawergha, an entire town of 30,000 black and “dark-skinned” Libyans which vanished by August 2011 after its takeover by NATO-backed NTC Misratan brigades.

But it is important to remember that CNN itself at the time regularly promoted the false “black mercenary” narrative which helped fuel and excuse such atrocities, even though it is now much belatedly investigating and decrying Libya’s current migrant slave auctions, while leaving out the essential context which enabled such horrors in the first place. For example, the following February 2011 CNN reporting relied on unnamed opposition sources during the earliest days of the conflict to say:

Residents said hundreds of mercenaries from sub-Saharan Africa had been killed or captured while fighting for Gadhafi, but much of the army appears to have gone over to anti-government forces.

And a separate CNN article from the same month – though acknowledging that no CNN journalists were even inside the country – still uncritically reported:

Clashes broke out between a large crowd of demonstrators and people who appeared to be African mercenaries in the center of the city, according to an activist.

Yet another broadcast segment from February 2011 – the clip of which appears to have since been deleted from CNN’s site (but which is available on YouTube), asks the question: in Libya “just who is doing the dirty work?” – while answering that Gaddafi imported Chadian and Sudanese mercenaries to crack down on civilian protesters.

And those few examples are but a tiny sampling of CNN’s consistent spreading the dangerous myth throughout the early stages of the conflict – to say nothing of how ubiquitous the false rebel claims became among mainstream media generally.

US-backed Rebels and Ethnic Genocide

One of the few international correspondents to actually report the truth in real time while writing from inside Libya was The Independent’s (UK) Patrick Cockburn. In an August 2011 story he wrote as if attempting to warn the world about the future war crimes to come at the hands of the US-backed rebels:

The rotting bodies of 30 men, almost all black and many handcuffed, slaughtered as they lay on stretchers and even in an ambulance in central Tripoli, are an ominous foretaste of what might be Libya’s future. The incoming regime makes pious statements about taking no revenge on pro-Gaddafi forces, but this stops short of protecting those who can be labelled mercenaries. Any Libyan with a black skin accused of fighting for the old regime may have a poor chance of survival.

Subsequent stories of widespread torture and executions of black Libyans included a 2012 report in UK media which involved anti-Gaddafi “revolutionaries” filming themselves torturing black prisoners, making them eat the former Libyan national flag.

If reporters like Cockburn and even prominent human rights organizations (see Human Rights Watch, September 2011, Libya: Stop Arbitrary Arrests of Black Africans) understood what was happening months prior to height of NATO’s military campaign in support of the rebels, which ended in the brutal torture and field execution of Gaddafi, then what did one of the prime US architects of the war, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton know and when did she know it?

What Hillary Knew

The answer lies in a March 27, 2011, intelligence brief on Libya published by WikiLeaks. The brief, which was made public in 2015 as part of a large batch of Hillary emails released by the State Department, was sent by long time close adviser to the Clinton family and Hillary’s personal intelligence gatherer, Sidney Blumenthal, and contains clear reference to rebels summarily executing “all foreign mercenaries” – which had already become the common euphemism for black Libyans then being targeted by the US-supported rebels.

Citing a rebel commander source “speaking in strict confidence” Blumenthal reports to Hillary:

Under attack from allied Air and Naval forces, the Libyan Army troops have begun to desert to the rebel side in increasing numbers. The rebels are making an effort to greet these troops as fellow Libyans, in an effort to encourage additional defections.

Source Comment: Speaking in strict confidence, one rebel commander stated that his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting…

Hillary Emails show UK, French, Egyptian special forces were secretly in Libya providing arms to “protestors” https://t.co/SyRhaYeLGI

WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 25, 2016

And further interesting is that the line immediately following the acknowledgement of war crimes against “foreign mercenaries” indicates that a long time CIA supported Libyan exile was then taking command of the very militants committing those summary executions.

The email continues:

At the same time Colonel Khalifa Haftar has reportedly joined the rebel command structure, in an effort to help organization the rebel forces.

Khalifa Haftar has since 2011 become a mainstay in Libya’s post-Gaddafi chaos, heading up one of the three to four governments (at any given time) claiming authority in the war-torn country. Haftar has been widely acknowledged as the “CIA’s man” during his two decade long exile in the US, as a BBC profile explained: “His proximity to the CIA’s headquarters in Langley hinted at a close relationship with US intelligence services, who gave their backing to several attempts to assassinate Gaddafi.”

CIA’s Khalifa Haftar and Mass Executions

Meanwhile, Haftar is currently being eyed by international prosecutors for continuing to commit war crimes in Libya. One month ago The Guardian reported, “Ex-CIA asset Khalifa Haftar, due to meet Italian officials in Rome, ordered soldiers to kill prisoners, according to legal experts.” The Guardian cites video evidence which proves he continues to be “complicit in calling for extrajudicial killings.”

And yesterday Al Jazeera reported that a formal suit has been filed against Haftar at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for “carrying out mass executions and torture.” Another recent Guardian report which details torture and rape being carried out against prisoners held under Haftar’s militia alliance, includes the following eyewitness account of the torture of African migrant detainees:

There was a black man, a migrant. In the evening, they threw him into one of our cells: ‘You rape this guy, otherwise, you’re dead!’”

Then Secretary of State Clinton understood in early 2011 what was happening concerning the rebel genocidal targeting of black Libyans and African migrants, yet pushed to arm the rebels and overthrow Gaddafi anyway. She was given the intelligence brief which gave evidence this was happening on March 27, 2011. But even without such a classified intelligence report personally delivered to her, such war crimes were so well known that a full month prior on February 28, 2011, Al Jazeera could publish the following story entitled, African Migrants Targetted in Libya:

As nations evacuate their citizens from the violence gripping Libya, many African migrant workers are targeted because they are suspected of being mercenaries hired by Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader.

Dozens of workers from sub-Saharan Africa are feared killed, and hundreds are in hiding, as angry mobs of anti-government protesters hunt down “black African mercenaries,” according to witnesses.

“No Regrets”

But even years later, as such race-based war crimes have now been exhaustively documented, Hillary has consistently indicated that she has no regrets. Though her beloved Libyan rebels, legitimized and empowered through broad support from the West, were literally killing people based on the color of their skin, not a single one has ever been convicted in a court of law or punished for their crimes.

Moreover, Hillary has never so much as hinted at the problem, though her public stature would allow her a world-wide platform to speak against atrocities at any time, possibly preventing further crimes. Instead, she has simply chosen to conclude her role in the tragic story of Libya with her crazed and gleeful declaration of “we came, we saw, he died.”

My Note: Another perfect example of the Esau & Ishmael alliance for the endless African and Christian genocide. They will all burn in hell! Shame on those Africans who, in any manner, collaborate with these demonic evils!

Eritrean Refugee: “It’s Better to Die in the Sea Than to Stay in Libya”

Posted by addisethiopia on July 10, 2017

Migrants Are Being Sold At Open Slave Markets In Libya

  • It is better to die than stay in Libya:’ Libya’s Slave Markets Remind Us of Flaws in EU Migration Plans
  • Migrants from West Africa are being openly traded in “public slave markets” across Libya.

I was horrified when I read the International Organization for Migration (IOM) report last week on sub-Saharan Africans being sold and bought in open markets in Libya—but I was not surprised.

During a recent visit to Italy, I spoke with dozens of men and women from East and West Africa who recently arrived in Sicily from Libya. They recounted extreme acts of cruelty at the hands of human smugglers, members of the Libyan coastguard, state-run detention center workers and locals.

I was sold twice,” a young man from Guinea told me on the tiny island of Lampedusa, just days after he arrived by boat from Libya. “I was sold to an Arab man who forced me to work and told me to call my family so they would send money. He sold me to another Arab man who forced me to work for him, too.” The young man was only able to leave once his family sent enough money to free him.

The slave trade affects women, too. A young woman from Nigeria told me: “As a female, you can’t walk alone in the street. Even if they don’t shoot you, [if] you’re black, they’ll just take you and sell you.” One man, also from Guinea, said that women are more expensive to buy than men.

Women also face shocking levels of sexual abuse. A United Nations official told me that of the migrants and asylum seekers in Libya, “almost every woman” has been sexually abused.

In this context, it is astounding that the European Union is working hard to keep people off its shores, even if it means leaving them in Libya. As outlined in a declaration in Malta in February, EU heads of state have promised to train and equip the Libyan coastguard and are hoping to “ensure [there are] adequate reception capacities and conditions in Libya for migrants.”

With summer weather approaching—bringing better conditions for crossing the Mediterranean—the EU and its member states are working with a sense of urgency that is palpable.

Training the Libyan coastguard is a welcome move if it contributes to saving lives and treating those rescued with humanity and respect. But the question of what happens after they are rescued is key: People are currently taken to detention centers where they are held in inhuman conditions.

Describing such centers, asylum seekers and migrants told me they had been beaten and forced to ask their relatives for money, that sometimes those who could not pay were shot, and that they were hardly fed at all. In addition, the collusion between smugglers and people running some detention centres is no secret.

Absent from the EU plan is what happens to people who fled their homes because of violence or persecution. Many of those arriving in Italy via Libya are in this category, among them Eritreans, Somalis, Sudanese, and people fleeing other countries because it is unsafe for them, often because of their political activities or sexual orientation.

The EU is focused on increasing the number of people returning from Libya to their country of origin, but there does not seem to be any consideration for those who cannot do so safely.

Despite the ongoing chaos and violence in Libya there is an absence—with very few exceptions—of international staff, including those from the EU, the U.N., and humanitarian organizations on the ground. As such, the idea that the situation for migrants and asylum seekers will dramatically improve in the coming months is utterly unrealistic.

One Eritrean man told me that “it’s better to die in the sea than to stay in Libya.” Smugglers had chained him to the ground by the ankles for three days when he was unable to pay the money they demanded. It is little surprise that for people like him, risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean seems like the only option.

Smugglers Kill At Least 22 African Migrants On Libya Beach After Refusing To Board Their Boat Due To Bad Weather

Posted by addisethiopia on March 10, 2017

People-smugglers have killed 22 African migrants on a beach in western Libya, a security source said on Wednesday.

The migrants were set to embark from Sabrata beach, 70km west of Tripoli, in a perilous attempt to cross the Mediterranean, the source said.

They were killed after refusing to board their boat due to bad weather, the source added.

The Libyan Red Crescent confirmed the killings had taken place over the weekend, but was unable to provide further details.

The Geneva-based International Organisation for Migration said on Tuesday it had heard reports of the deaths.

“There seems to have been an exchange of fire between the smugglers, which resulted in the death of 22 migrants,” it said.

African lives have no value on the people smuggling route. This is the worst form of xenophobia/Afrophobia and yet receives minimal attention.

‘Habesha’ Christian Migrants Kidnapped by Isis in Libya Kept as Sex Slaves After Forced Conversion to Islam

Posted by addisethiopia on July 2, 2016

Know islam, no peace.

No islam, know peace.

SexJihad

Captives were beaten and threatened with death unless they converted – then the sexual abuse would begin.

Christian migrants in Libya hoping to reach Europe have detailed the persecution they have faced at the hands of Islamic State including starvation, beatings, sexual slavery and forced conversion to Islam.

Amal, a 21-year-old Eritrean woman, described how she was raped by different men and was finally assigned as a “wife” to one IS fighter who also raped her after she was kidnapped near Benghazi in July 2015.

The young woman described how she and a group of 71 people she was travelling with were deprived of food for up to three days at a time over a period of months.

“They took [the Christians] to Tripoli and kept us underground – we didn’t see the sun for nine months. We were 11 women from Eritrea,” she said. “Sometimes we didn’t eat for three days. Other times they would give us one meal a day, half a piece of bread.”

Amal also described how the captives were pressured into converting into Islam under threat of death and were beaten with hoses or sticks. “Sometimes they would frighten us with their guns, or threaten to slaughter us with their knives,” she explained. After women agreed to convert the sexual violence and rape would begin.

In another case, in 2015 Adam, 28, a man from Ethiopia living in Benghazi with his wife, was abducted by IS simply because he was a Christian.

“They kept me in a prison for one and half months. Then one of them felt sorry for me after I told him I have a family and he helped me memorize the Quran so they would let me go… They killed many people,” he explained. Adam said he was was eventually able to escape after seven months in captivity.

According to the International Organisation for Immigration (IOM), most foreign nationals residing in Libya originate from Niger, Egypt, Chad, Ghana and Sudan. The majority of those transiting through the country and then crossing to Italy by boat are from Eritrea, Nigeria, Gambia, Somalia and Côte d’Ivoire. The main transit point for people from West Africa entering Libya is the south-western city of Sabha.

Those entering via Sudan from Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia come through Kufra, and then travel on to Ajdabiya in the north eastern part of the country. Most boats heading to Europe depart from north-western Libya. Before departure, foreign nationals are held in houses and farms until more people are gathered for the journey.
