Tripoli Eyewitnesses 3/22/11
Witnesses in Tunisia, March 22 2011
(This is a few days after the No Fly Zone started to get enforced. )
Here is the first video of a Libyan man in Tunisa:
We are coming to Tunisia to talk about what is happening in Tripoli. We are far from Tripoli, 800 km. We are masked because we are afraid, even if we are far - 800km; can you imagine how the Libyans in Tripoli can live in fear ? I will speak of what is happening :
He is has been bombing 3 days continuously Alzintan, Alzawiya…Gaddafi took out the bodies from the hospital to assemble them, to show the media that these are victims of the coalition. Zintan is destroyed. I hope my God takes his soul and kills him. Alzawiya is destroyed.
He is using people from 3 districts in Tripoli for the media. He is giving them money and drugs to show on the media that he has supporters. He put these people from these districts in the hospitality centers facing the Hotel Richard. The foreign media is staying in the Hotel Richard. He is taking reporters while hiding their eyes to some places, and telling them this is Alzawiya or Tajoura. The people facing the Hotel Richard who are in the hospitality centers - he is using them to stand in front of the media to show that he has supporters. He is a big liar and a big manipulator.
Here is the second video
The woman in the video is saying:
To people who are saying “No foreign military in Libya!”: Well maybe they are right to a point, but Gaddafi is challenging the whole world. He is saying, “I am the supreme power !” We need the coalition to cut the wings of this butcher criminal. If the coallition doesn’t do that, who will?
In all his speeches he is challenging the world and the Supreme Power, and threatening the Libyans. What you are seeing in his media (“info mercials”) are people he is paying money and giving drugs to. He calls them the defenders of the Libyan land. They have nothing to do with this name; those people are bought by Gaddafi. He uses them for the media as supporters. He is a big liar. These supporters that you see on the media are liars like him and bought by him.
People of the world, you should know that he is a manipulator and a liar. We appeal to the whole world, and especially France, to save us from this tyrant.
They are horrible crimes committed by him, things that the mind cannot imagine, horrifying things.
Moammar qirdaffi , the criminal, the butcher, who doesn’t fear God. We are appealing to the Arab world to come and help us struggle against this tyrant. God is with all of the Libyan people and the revolutionaries. We want justice, freedom, and to get rid of this criminal and butcher.
