Up to 7,000 held in Libyan prisons, U.N. says

October 14, 2011 Comments off

Do you think this sort of thing could not or would not happen here in the U.S.? Time will tell – The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.

Up to 7,000 prisoners are held in dozens of makeshift detention centers in Libya more than two months after rebel forces toppled Muammar Gaddafi, amid serious allegations and some evidence of torture, the United Nations said on Friday.

Transitional authorities lack a clear system for screening and registering detainees, thus opening the door to ill-treatment, Mona Rishmawi, a senior official of the U.N. human rights office, told a briefing after a weeklong visit to Libya.

Prisoners include people arrested at checkpoints without identity papers, suspected mercenaries from several regions, pro-Gaddafi fighters captured on the battlefield or people whose names appeared on lists of people to be rounded up, she said.

“There are thousands of people who are being held, we are talking about a large number. It could be up to 7,000,” said Rishmawi, who is in charge of the office’s rule of law branch.

“The majority of these people have not gone through a (judicial) process. This of course is a recipe for abuse. There are indications of very serious issues going on.”

In all, there are believed to be 67 makeshift detention centers across Libya, compared with a few central prisons during the 42-year-rule of Gaddafi, she added.

The International Committee of the Red Cross has visited at least 40 Libyan prison facilities, ICRC spokesman Steven Anderson told Reuters on Friday. Its confidential findings about conditions are shared only with detaining authorities.

Amnesty International issued a report on Wednesday saying Libya’s new rulers were in danger of repeating human rights abuses commonplace under Gaddafi. The NTC said it would look into the report.


Hanny Megally, head of the U.N. human rights office’s Asia, Pacific, Middle East and North Africa branch, led the mission to Libya. They met ministers of the National Transitional Council, as well as activists and lawyers, and visited some prisons but did not speak with inmates.

“…We actually believe that the situation in the prisons is that there is ill-treatment, there are allegations and evidence of torture. Yes, I can say that,” Rishmawi said. – Reuters

More than 43 million worldwide forced from homes, U.N. says

June 20, 2011 Comments off

(CNN) — The number of people forced from their homes worldwide has risen to 43.7 million, the highest level in 15 years, according to a U.N. refugee agency report released Monday.

That’s up from 43.3 million people a year earlier, said UNHCR’s 2010 Global Trends report, which was released to coincide with World Refugee Day.

Of those displaced, the report classified 15.4 million people as refugees forced to flee their country and 27.5 million as displaced persons within their own country, forced to leave their home because of conflict or natural disaster, the report said.

The release of the annual report comes amid ireports of people fleeing conflict in Syria, Sudan and Libya. In recent days, thousands have begun fleeing to refugee camps set up along the Syria-Turkey border to accommodate those attempting to escape a Syrian military crackdown on anti-government demonstrators.

“Four-fifths of world refugees are in the developing world, and it is the developing world that needs international solidarity to cope with this challenge,” Antonio Guterres, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said Monday.

A woman, who identified herself as Nour, said she fled to the camps because she believed she would die if she stayed in Syria.

“I come here. This circumstance is so difficult,” she said. “I am pregnant. I cannot bear such things. “

The report said 10.5 million of the world’s refugees are under the care of the United Nations, and another 4.82 million are registered with the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.


Christ is the only hope out of this world destined for destruction. Yahweh is the only One that can effect the escape from what is destined to those left behind. She provided the only hope and the escape for those found worthy.

2 Samuel 22:2-4 “He said: The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my mountain where I seek refuge. My shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold, my refuge, and my Savior, You save me from violence. I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,and I was saved from my enemies.”

To be taken to a stronghold by deliverance on to the Mountain of Mother Israel, where refuge from the coming horrendous violence will be provided. With Yahweh, no one can touch us, because our Mother is Israel upon Mount Zion.

White House to Congress: We Don’t Need Your Authorization On Libya

June 16, 2011 Comments off

WASHINGTON — The White House finally made its case to Congress on why it doesn’t need lawmakers’ approval to forge ahead with military operations in Libya: Because we’re not at war.

Senior administration officials said Wednesday that the fact that the U.S. is only playing a support role in the NATO-led military effort in Libya — that is, no U.S. troops on the ground and no potential for casualties — and only plans to be involved for a short time means Obama doesn’t need congressional authorization per the War Powers Act to proceed.

“We are confident that we’re operating consistent with the resolution,” an administration official said on a conference call with reporters. “That doesn’t mean that we don’t want the full, ongoing consultation with Congress or authorization as we move forward, but that doesn’t go to our legal position under the statute itself, and we’re confident of that.”

The call came hours before the White House submitted a detailed, 32-page report to Congress that maps out the administration’s legal justification for Obama continuing to call the shots on Libya without congressional approval.


Satan’s long reign is finally coming to its end this side of Armageddon. His last ditch effort will prove as futile as his past tries to rule over mankind. He has found the human race more rebellious than he can manage, and more of rebels than his own self and family of demons / converts to Yahweh’s Throne of Authority. Mankind in general is non-manageable, just as they were before the great flood swept them all away except for Yahweh’s small remnant.

Watch as it unfolds…recognize the signs. Remember and you will know when it occurs, why it is happening.

Previously shared by this ministry in April 2011: Presently the E.U. is raising its head to become further involved in Libya. As it continues to move forward with strides, the USA will fall farther into oblivion.

Germany splits from EU family over Libya

March 19, 2011 Comments off

When the European debt problem fast-tracked into a genuine crisis, Germany stood apart. Chancellor Angela Merkel was highly reluctant to bail out effectively bankrupt Greece, a country German voters considered the author of its own misfortune.

German reluctance to side with its European Union partners was on display again when it abstained from the United Nations Security Council vote to establish a no-fly zone over Libya and use “all necessary measures” to protect civilians.

Germany’s stands show that the EU, in spite of its efforts to act as a single economic and political unit on the international stage, is still a divided force. Germany may be the EU’s economic and industrial juggernaut, but it was France and Britain that stole the diplomatic show as the Libyan civil war turned increasingly bloody.

Italy, another EU heavyweight, had been wishy-washy about stopping Moammar Gadhafi’s assault against his own people. Italy and Libya have strong business ties and Italy occupied Libya between 1911 and 1943. Libya’s collapse could deliver a flood of refugees to Italy, which lies due north of Tripoli, the Libyan capital, but Rome finally got on board and offered air bases for the enforcement of the no-fly zone.

Germany’s stand on bailing out profligate EU states during the debt crisis indicates that it is willing to split from the EU family when it feels strongly about an issue. While Germany ultimately endorsed the rescue effort for Greece in May, and Ireland six months later, it was done reluctantly and with strict demands that debt-soaked countries do all they can to fix their own financial messes instead of relying on German taxpayers for handouts.

Still, Germany’s reluctance to endorse a no-fly zone over Libya came as something of a surprise, given the remarks made by Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle in January, when Germany began a two-year stint as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council. “Germany will be a reliable, responsible and engaged partner,” he said. “We will do our part to ensure that the world continues to see the council as the central body for peace and security in the world.”


The Image of the Beast is Rising Up. Although split, the success of this intervention will bolster the E.U. to become a dominator of the world.

Revelation 13:10-14 The Beast from the Earth
“11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon. 12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. 13 He also performs great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth before people. 14 He deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that he is permitted to perform on behalf of the beast,”

One came out of the sea, and the other out of the earth.

The beast that came up from the earth is the United States. Old Rome fell to the sword of its day. It has arisen out of the sea. It is a monster. The Leviathan.

Obama Fiddles While Fukushima Burns

March 16, 2011 Comments off

History tells us that Nero fiddled while Rome burned, but Barack Obama is providing the famous emperor with some serious competition when it comes to going AWOL while America and the world face crises the likes of which haven’t been experienced in decades.

Even as the situation at the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant continues to worsen by the hour, and as radiation surges across the Pacific towards the U.S. west coast while Americans panic buy supplies of potassium iodide, President Obama seems remarkably sanguine about the whole affair.

While protests and civil wars rage in Libya and Bahrain, Obama is keeping himself busy by videotaping his NCAA tournament picks, hitting the golf course for the 61st time in his presidency, and partying with lawmakers during a Chicago Bulls vs. Charlotte Bobcats game.

The most energy Obama could bother to devote to what is fast coming one of the biggest nuclear disasters in history was to make an empty statement about how people could donate to, while labeling the NCAA exercise a “great diversion.”

While Japan begs the United States for help to rescue the dire situation at Fukushima, Obama seems more concerned about dressing up nicely to please the media elite at the annual Gridiron Dinner.


The USA is involved in a covert plan to prevent Christ from taking possession of this planet for his Millennial Rule, and if people knew there would be chaos. The hope extended from Christ and Yahweh is what keeps many people sane. This will play out like it did with ancient Egypt; the government back then, and all of the Egyptian people knew it was Yahweh bringing the plagues as punishment. That’s why Mother said the nations would have to know the threat comes from Her side of this conflict. And Yahweh noted that the kings of this planet would plot against Her Plan to take back possession of the earth. That means they have to know what is going on, and Satan is the one that gives counsel to his generals.

Farrakhan: Mideast uprisings will come to US

February 28, 2011 Comments off

Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan predicted on Sunday that America faces imminent uprisings that mirror those in the Middle East.

“What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt … Libya, in Bahrain … what you see happening there … you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door,” Farrakhan said in a booming voice, thousands of followers cheering in his wake.

Farrakhan also called on President Barack Obama to allow protesters to march, urging the president not to attack innocent people when they do.

The controversial minster spoke to a packed house at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont as part of the 81st annual celebration of Saviours’ Day, which marks the birth of the faith’s founder, W. Fard Muhammad.

The keynote address, titled “God will send saviours,” capped a weekend of workshops focused on health, preparing for natural disasters and unidentified flying objects. The Nation of Islam believes in a UFO called “the wheel” or “the Mother Plane.”


Years back, the Light of Life ministry encouraged people to move out of the cities and if necessary, to form communes and pool their resources. What is happening now is the reason that was suggested. Soon, this nation will shut down on the day to day working population level and military law will become the norm. People will become virtual prisoners in their homes as lines of communication with the outside world are cut. You will receive broadcasts of governmental warnings to all people that tell you what you are to do and not to do until order is restored. If you are in a city, you will not be able to get out. What will later transpire, is the birth of the new world order of Satan’s design. Freedom will become a thing of the past until the LOZ come back to crush the nations on this planet and execute all of the evil people. Be prepared for what is just ahead. In one hour things can change.

Unrest in the Middle East and North Africa – country by country

February 19, 2011 Comments off

(CNN) – Two months ago, a Tunisian fruit vendor struck a match that started a fire that has spread throughout the much of North Africa and the Middle East. Muhammad Bouazizi’s self-immolation prompted anti-government protests that toppled regimes in Tunisia and Egypt. Here are the latest developments, including the roots of the unrest, as well as a look at previous events in affected countries.

Friday developments:


Tens of thousands of Libyans took to the streets Friday to air their discontent with four decades of Moammar Gadhafi, the longest-ruling non-royalty head of state in the world, witnesses said. At least 20 people were killed and 200 were injured in the northern Mediterranean city of Benghazi, Libya’s second largest, said a medical source in Benghazi, who was not identified for security reasons. CNN was unable to independently verify the information. U.S. President Barack Obama condemned the outbreak of violence in Libya.

Roots of unrest:

Protests in Libya, ruled by Gadhafi since a 1969 coup, began in January when demonstrators, fed up with delays, broke into a housing project the government was building and occupied it. Gadhafi’s government responded with a $24 billion fund for housing and development. A month later, more demonstrations were sparked when police detained relatives of those killed in an alleged 1996 massacre at the Abu Salim prison, according to Human Rights Watch. High unemployment has also fueled the protests, as have anti-Gadhafi groups


Four people were killed in the center of Bahrain’s capital Friday, where shots were fired after demonstrators gathered, an ambulance worker in Manama told CNN. U.S. President Barack Obama condemned the violence. The new protests came a day after a violent police and military crackdown left four dead and scores wounded. What seemed like thousands of people – some chanting anti-government slogans – marched in the town of Sitra to attend the funerals of three of the four people killed Thursday. Two other people died during disturbances earlier in the week. The tiny island nation is a U.S. ally and houses the headquarters of the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet.

Roots of unrest:

Protesters initially took to the streets of Manama on Monday to demand reform and the introduction of a constitutional monarchy. But some are now calling for the removal of the royal family, which has led the Persian Gulf island state since the 18th century. Young members of the country’s Shiite Muslim majority have staged violent protests in recent years to complain about discrimination, unemployment and corruption, issues they say the country’s Sunni rulers have done little to address. The Bahrain Center for Human Rights says authorities launched a clampdown on dissent in late 2010. It accused the government of torturing some human rights activists.

At Least 24 Dead as Libya Uprisings Grow

February 19, 2011 Comments off

Protests are once again surging in Libya, where the opposition has declared a “day of rage” against Moammar Gadhafi, the long-serving military dictator of the nation. Protesters are said to have stormed one of the nation’s prisons and freed a number of political prisoners.

But as is all too common in these growing protests across the region, the military has been using live ammunition in an attempt to crush the rising dissent. The death toll, according to human rights groups, is at least 24, and is likely to rise in the days and weeks ahead.

Gadhafi has been amongst Africa’s most colorful dictators, and has had a less amenable relationship with the US historically than most of the region’s other dictators. This is owing largely to his decision to nationalize the Libyan oil holdings of American investors when he seized control of the nation.
