Jeg orker ikke rigtig Libyen. Må jeg tilstå. Men Bernard-Henri Lévy er dybt engageret i Libyen-krigen. Her skriver han om den:
Libya Wins One for Freedom
Aug 22, 2011 – Bernard-Henri Lévy
Bernard-Henri Lévy pays homage to Sarkozy’s gamble, the U.S. and European airmen—and above all the Libyan rebels, who have written a new page in the history of their country.
We’ve heard it all!
They were getting bogged down in this war.
The insurgents were disorganized, undisciplined, lightweights.

Is Bernard-Henri Lévy having the best week ever?
By Joshua Keating – August 22, 2011
Last spring, it seemed like everyone was hating on French philosopher/public intellectual/serial chest-hair exhibitionist Bernard-Henri Lévy. It was bad enough that he had helped push President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government into an intervention in Libya that appeared to be settling into an endless quagmire. Then in May, he was pilloried for going on record to defend his friend Dominique Strauss-Kahn from sexual assault charges that he compared to a lynching and the Dreyfus Affair. Some even went as far as to wonder whether the Libya invasion would have happened if the Strauss-Kahn affair, and the damage to BHL’s reputation that ensued, had come first.

Han skulle ellers være blevet kidnappet af “oprørere”. En anden af Gaddfi’s sønner skulle være undsluppet husarrest, skriver The New York Times. Men det er sket efter denne artikel blev skrevet:
Diana West – August 23, 2011
With non-Constitutionally-US-supported anti-Qadaffi forces taking Tripoli yesterday, it looks as if — to be as delicate as a NATO commander — the “flickers” of Al Qaeda and Hezbollah have won. In franker words, America’s jihadist allies, a significant presence among the Libyan “rebels,” are now rising to power in Libya. In more startling terms, the same people who fought with al Qaeda against Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan (and committed unreported atrocities in Libya), are now, thanks to the US taxpayer, very likely about to run or at least help run a state with the ninth largest oil reserves in the world.
But don’t worry. Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman was in Benghazi all weekend, making sure everything works out all right.

The New Libyan Zabibah-stan, Made Safe for Sharia?
Andrew Bostom – August 23, 2011
Zabibah-prominent* Libyan “rebel” spokesperson Mustafa Abduljalil, born in 1952 in Al Baida, one of the first cities to rise against Gaddafi, studied law and Islamic jurisprudence in Benghazi before embarking on a legal career that culminated in his appointment in 2007 as Qaddafi’s “minister of justice.” A Wikileaks memo from 1/27/2010 revealed,
In the course of the discussion of the Criminal Code, Abduljalil abruptly changed the subject from freedom of speech to the “Libyan people’s concern about the U.S. government’s support for Israel.”He averred that Libya cares deeply about Muslims everywhere, and about Muslim countries. In his view, the root cause of terrorism stems from the perception that Europe and the U.S. are against Muslims.

Libyan Draft Constitution: Sharia is ‘Principal Source of Legislation’
Lachlan Markay – August 22, 2011
The dust has not yet settled over the Libyan capital of Tripoli since rebels took control over the weekend. But already, a draft constitutional charter for the transitional state has appeared online (embedded below). It is just a draft, mind you, and gauging its authenticity at this point is difficult. There is also no way to know whether this draft or something similar will emerge as the final governing document for a new Libyan regime.
