LIBYA - Collapse of the System
Ash-Shura / The Counsel
[Koran Sura 42]
And whoso defendeth himself after he hath suffered wrong -
for such, there is no way (of blame) against them. (41)
The way (of blame) is only against those who oppress mankind, and
wrongfully rebel in the earth. For such there is a painful doom. (42)
وَلَمَنِ ٱنتَصَرَ بَعۡدَ ظُلۡمِهِۦ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ مَا عَلَيۡہِم مِّن سَبِيلٍ -٤١
إِنَّمَا ٱلسَّبِيلُ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ يَظۡلِمُونَ ٱلنَّاسَ وَيَبۡغُونَ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ بِغَيۡرِ ٱلۡحَقِّۚ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ لَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ۬ -٤٢

Summary of News on February 22, 2011:
Defiant Gaddafi speech shows he would rather die "a martyr"

opinion on violence in Libya as follows: "The Qadhafi government's
use of deadly force against its own people should mean the end of
the regime itself. It's beyond depictable, and I hope we are wit-
nessing its last hours in power. Libyans should have the opportunity
to choose leaders who respect their basic rights." The White House
like the Department of State offer condolences for the victims of
Libyan naval ship floating in the waters of Malta, possibly intending
to defect like the pilots of two military jets the day before. Pilots
