Moussa Ibrahim was interviewed via phone by Al Rai TV Friday 16.09.11.
A summary of the key points of his message follows:
>>All attempts aimed at penetrating our defenses have failed. We have the ability to continue fighting for months, although the attacks and bombings by NATO are fierce and beyond belief.
>>Qatar does not want its citizens to regard the NTC as extremists. They repeatedly state that Mahmoud Jibril and members of the NTC are liberals backed by France and Britain. Qatar is a strong ally of the armed gangs that destroy and kill in the name of religion.
>>Algeria has come under attack due to the fact that it is a major economic power in Africa and has vast resources. Algeria is also strongly anti-imperialistic and pursues a humanitarian form of governance and diplomacy. Algeria has refused to cooperate with NATO.
>>Although there are many differences between NATO countries, they share common ground when it comes to dividing the spoils of Libya for their personal gain.
>>There is an imperialist conspiracy against Libya, Algeria and any nation with a thriving economy and vast natural resources.
>>The aim of the imperialists is the recolonization of Africa.
>>He cautioned against accepting media reports that create despair or confusion about the situation in Libya.
Moussa Ibrahim has issued a statement warning people NOT to go the Anti NATO march on the 18th of September as it is a trap set by NATO to massacre as much of the resistance as possible.. This before the UN General Assembly which may call for a halt to the no-fly zone. – A.I.
>>He stated that any messages to the people will come through Al Rai TV.
MOUSSA IBRAHIM’S MESSAGE: FROM STOP THE WAR IN LIBYA. WE DEMAND IT [UNEDITED – SLIGHTLY MORE DETAIL BUT FAR FROM COMPLETE]
Al Rai – What comments do you have on the visit of Sarcozy, Cameron and Levy to Libya?
MI – This visit has many meanings. First of all, it was carried out under tight security in Tripoli because they came in military planes and were surrounded by military defence, and they moved from M’eteega Airport to the hotel where they made their conference using helicopters because they know perfectly that the Libyan fighters and moujahidin are found everywhere in the city. As we said earlier, they came to collect the fruits of their seeds. They are afraid of the race of USA and other NATO nations toward the Libyan cake as they see it, so they hurried to Tripoli to make their deals with the traitors, and to guarantee their grasp over the Libyan oil first, then the Libyan rebuilding, and there they are talking about rebuilding the country they destroyed, with the infrastructure, the schools, the hospitals, the houses, the factories with the Libyan money, so they are gaining when they are destroying, and they are gaining when they are rebuilding and they are certainly not rebuilding the country. Also, every colonial country has its men and agents. The role of these countries is to enforce the position of their agents, and to present political figures which are considered to turn in their orbit. For these reasons, I assure you and all the free people in Libya and the world, the war is far from finished, and we are still able to resist and win. I know what I am talking about and I know why we will win. So I am asking all the honourable people of Tripoli to engage in civil disobedience. Stop going to work. Delay this project whose goal is to remove the independence and identity of Libya for years. This negative resistance and civil disobedience will help our fighters composed of young volunteers and the Libyan army in Zawya, Zliten, Sorman, Sibrata, Jufra and Ghat, to continue in their fight and to rearrange themselves, in preparation for the march very soon. So, this visit made by Sarkozy and Cameron is an announcement for the start of this colonial project. For this reason, the country sovereignty and freedom is in danger, and every Libyan citizen has a sacred role and a compulsory duty of carrying on his own duty on his personal level by not complying with the colonialists and the traitors. I would like to reassure the Libyans that the armed gangs are now weak, divided, large groups of them have given up fighting, large groups have left Libya with many spoils, and other groups have stopped fighting because of too much blood shed. We have many thousands who are fighting for the country. We have the ammunition, we have the money, we have the heart of the people, we have the national legitimacy, religious legitimacy, the moral legitimacy, the cultural legitimacy, and we have no other road but victory, with the will of Allah. But the people have to stand for the honor, the jihad, and the civil disobedience and negative resistance, so they can help us to go on forward and bury this colonial project against the Arabism and Islam in Tripoli, so we can protect Algeria from falling, because I assure you, after Libya, they will come to Algeria, Syria, and finally Saudi Arabia.
Al Rai – All those who are calling us wish you victory. Also, the Arabs from the other countries wonder how you are doing inside Libya and are wondering whether you need any help. Do you need any kind of humanitarian help from the Arab countries?
MI- If you could see the wonderful sights I am having about the people here, you would feel very reassured both you and all the viewers. There are thousands of young volunteers, who are fighting on different fronts, and we welcome anyone who would like to stand by our side, and I can give you the information and the ways to contact us so you can inform those who want to contact us according to worked plan. However, I ask our Arab brothers to help us from their country by standing in front of their government and demand them to stand by the Libyan legitimate government and to bury this colonial project, to demand the sheikhs to stand by our sides…
