A retired Libyan general has said he wants to cleanse Libya of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist radicals.

Khalifa Haftar blamed them for widespread lawlessness in the country.

He told Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper the he had arrested 40 people who had allegedly been helped and given fake passports by the Brotherhood.

The operation, dubbed Al-Karama (dignity), was launched because the "Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is the driving forces behind extremists arriving in Libya."

"This opened the eyes of Libyans," he added.

Haftar said the offensive had been in the planning for two years. It started in the eastern city of Benghazi on Friday and swept into Tripoli where the General National Congress or parliament was occupied on Sunday.

Gunmen loyal to the general set fire to an annex of the parliament before withdrawing to the airport.

He was joined on Monday by Colonel Wanis Abu Khamada, a respected commander of an elite army unit.

Muslim brotherhood


MUSLIM BROTHRHOOD—SAYYID QUTB quote--Sayyid Qutb agreed with al-Banna that a complete religious, political, social, economic and cultural system could only be achieved though an Islamic State. “Setting up the Kingdom of God on earth and eliminating the kingdom of man means taking power from the hands of its human usurpers and restoring it to God alone.”unquote-- . Muslim Brotherhood and most extremist Muslim believe in Sayyid Qutb 100 percent. in fact, based on Al Quran, his teaching is against Allah’s laws. He already deceived Muslim Brotherhood and Extremist Muslim around the world and then create violence and disaster. . all love

Muslim brotherhood


EXTREMIST MUSLIM believe in Idols that Allah alone . They have taken their priests and their scholars (Ayyib Qutb, Al Qardawi, Al Zawahri, Osma Bin laden, Muslim & Bukhari etc ) for their Lords besides God QS.9:31. Follow (O men!) the revelation given unto you from your Lord, and follow not, as friends, or protectors, other than Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition.QS 7;3-4 . Extremist Muslim never give up to create Islamic state, and impose Syariah laws to others with makes the rule of Allah will be a official laws. It means those who does not follow the official law will put to Jail. Syariah law according to extremist Muslim Scholars..Their beliefs in Allah and also beliefs in idols like; Scholar Ayyib Qutb,Muslim and Bukhari cs. They associate Allah with idol of Muslim and Bukhari..for they become sinful Syrik. Idol Muslim and Bukhari command people to kill innocent people who do not follow their beliefs,like; they kill blasphemy, Gay, apostasy, infidel Ahmadiyah.All love

Expel agents of Saudi-Egyptian imperialism from Libya


Agents of Egyptian and Saudi imperialist terrorism are not welcome in Libya. Be content with spreading destruction in Egypt-Saudi Arabia and stop trying to export the filth to Libya. Pro-Egyptian terrorists who try to burn down the Libyan parliament should be repatriate to live with the terror sponsors in the halls of government in Cairo. Libya will not be subjugated by Saudi-Egyptian genocidal imperialist tyrants.

Noble and decent leadership like Gen. Haftar should be a relief to all Libyans.


Libyans suffered for forty years under the mental case Kadafi. Now they had to deal with the Muslim brotherhood terrorists who kidnapped and murdered both Libyans and Egyptians. Finally the Libyans have hope these men will rid Libya from its Muslim brotherhood cancer... My best wishes to all Libyans, you deserve a better country free of terrorists.

Jihad Elnafs (Swlf Dtruggle)


I fought for Libyans freedom during the uprising. I support my brothers Freedom Fighters for their Jihad Elnafs against Islamist terrorists who hijacked Islam. It is the duty of every Muslim to go after those criminals to protect Islam.
