Libyan FUBAR – John McCain’s Libyan “Moderate” Abdelhakim Belhadj Has Joined ISIS – Now Heads ISIS Through Libyan Dawn Construct…

Libya Banner 2

Few media outlets understand the scope of the Islamic alignment forces currently battling for control in Libya; even fewer try to report on them. A recent alarming report is now confirmed.

A man named Abdelhakim Belhadj has taken the position as head of ISIS in Libya. Abdelhakim Belhadj was critical in forming “Libya Dawn”, essentially a group of Islamic militia forces (LIFG or Libyan Islamic Fighting Groups) who fought under various banners such as Ansar al-Sharia (al-Qaeda in Libya) and the Muslim Brotherhood.

However, Abdelhakim Belhadj was also supported by the U.S. and more specifically Senator’s Graham and McCain in the lead up to the current crisis which no-one will call a civil war because of political fear – yet that is exactly what exists. Abdelhakim Belhadj taking the position as head of ISIS in Libya now all but guarantees Libya will be an Islamist Militant State.

[Via Counter Jihad] … Major news out of Libya as the former head of the Al Qaeda-linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, and a major player in the U.S.-backed overthrow of Mummar Gaddafi, has reportedly joined the Islamic State and is leading its forces there. This according to The Blaze National Security journalist Sara Carter on twitter, and Fox News’ Catherine Herridge in a Fox News report.

Belhadj’s ties to Al Qaeda were controversial during the run up to U.S. airstrikes in support of the Libyan rebels, but this did not prevent him from maintaining a high profile at the time, including being made head of the Tripoli Military Council, a position he held until resigning to run for office in May 2012. Belhadj has a reputation for involvement in the international jihad has well, playing a role in the 2004 Madrid training bombings, and accused by investigators of being involved in the murder of two Tunisian politicians at behest of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Islamic State fighters landed in Libya back in November of 2014, and have been at work establishing training camps in the Libyan city of Derna before launching a terror offensive which included an attack on a Libyan hotel, attacks on oil field workers, and the execution of 21 Copts in a graphic video which made international headlines.

ISIS in Libya

Belhadj commanding the full Libyan Dawn group, and now proclaiming allegiance to ISIS, puts him at the top of the Islamic power group structure in Libya. So it is not coincidental that we now see reports of ISIS fighters (Belhadj’s fighters) taking control of Libyan oil fields. The oil fields are essentially the treasury for Libya – whoever controls them is in control of the larger economic output for the entire country.

Telegraph […] Libya’s National Oil Corporation has declared 11 of its oilfields non-operational, opting for a force majeure clause that exempts the state from contractual obligations.

The move came after fighters from the Islamic State-dominated city of Sirte attacked the al-Dhahra oilfield on Wednesday. They also captured facilities in Bahi and Mabruk on Tuesday. Located south of Sirte, the two fields had been shut for weeks, in part due to security concerns.

The state-run oil company has blamed Islamist-dominated authorities in Tripoli for failing to protect the oilfields, and warned that it could be forced to shut down production nationwide. (link)

As another report from TIME Magazine outlines […] The attacks came as Libya’s warring factions escalated their ongoing conflict. Forces aligned to the government in Tobruk and the rival Libya Dawn administration in Tripoli both staged air strikes on each other’s positions on Tuesday.

With Abdelhakim Belhadj declaring alignment to ISIS, and with his command of the most severe of all the Islamist groups, and with the full support of the Muslim Brotherhood, there is virtually no way for Libya to escape slipping quickly into the same clutches currently working their way through Syria and Iraq.

This puts Egypt in a very tenuous position.

    Oh, lookie there, a moderate terrorist? So McCain is sounding more like 0bama by the minute, he loves moderate Taliban.

    Just like BiBi said “the enemy of your enemy is your enemy” Morans like McLame and Linseed never seem to be on the correct side of any issue.

    McCain and Graham would have better results playing ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey!’ These BOZOS went after Monica Lewinsky harder (pardon the pun) than Radical Muslim Jihadists!!! Tell me we don’t need a third party.

    Islam is Islam is Islam. Islam is as Islam does.

    Even relative moderates Abdullah of Jordan and Sisi of Egypt are still Islamists and jail those who disrespect Islam.

      Furthermore, today’s moderate Islamist leader/group is tomorrow’s dictator/terrorist group. Depends on the wind and weather. Elections don’t mean a darn thing in Islamist countries. Assassinations and coups are the most frequent means of regime change in Islam.

    While I don’t believe it was McCain’s nor Graham’s intent to be traitors, in their stupidity, arrogance and ineptitude their actions have become traitorous–absolutely AGAINST the interests of the United States and her freedom-loving citizens. Except for a few stand-up patriots, our nation is being governed by idiots.

    Many of us are old enough to remember Khrushchev saying, “We will bury you.” Perhaps he also foresaw our giving our enemies the shovel.

    Before Khrushchev Vladimir Ilyich Lenin said: “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” It was true then ,it is true now!

      I find it hard to like or trust any politician. I am usually voting against someone. Voting is usually a lesser of two evil type of choice.

  10. This should make anyone wishing to unseat McCain comfortable and ready to take him on in a senate race….what better material for an election campaign can there be? ISIS Being the pr experts and glory hogs will gladly prop Belhadj up as one of their own and this photo can be circulated far and wide. I personally don’t think MCCain, Graham or Obama oppose ISIS….they are foaming at the mouth to oust Assad and will do it through any means. Ironically the Christian genocide didn’t start under Assad, it started under these “moderates”. Just ask the Syrian Orthodox Church leaders who they support and why. I think our state department drops supplies to Isis under the guise of air strikes. How could 1000s of air strikes we claim to have done only strengthen them? And when Jordan conducted a legitimate one, we condemned them.

    The US Gov’t always has a weak or convoluted rationale for meddling in international affairs whenever it does. But history evidences we have a really terrible knack for supporting and aiding the wrong people, our enemies, people who hate and or ultimately betray us. In the last hundred years we provided aide to and supported Hitler, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussain (we forgave him a $10 billion loan amongst other things, Ghaddafi, Karzai in afghanistan (tons of cash bribes), Saudi Arabia, Hamas to name a few. The right wing (Cheney Rumsfled and that ilk) have been especially eager to meddle when it comes to the price of oil, but I hope with the surplus of oil now they can now all take a step back. Back to the 18th Century maybe when the motto on our first coinage was “Mind Your Business”, and not “In God We Trust”. We should stop acting like the empire we revolted against, and remember what happened to them, where and what we came from, what we originially stood for and fought for.
