Españoles abandonados por Exteriores en Libia

Trinidad Jiménez García-Herrera.

Copio de El Confidencial Digital, Españoles abandonados por Exteriores en Libia.

-- Repsol hizo de embajada improvisada: la energética presidida por Antoni Brufau es al compañía que más trabajadores españoles tiene desplegados en Libia.

Fue la primera en reaccionar para sacar a todos sus empleados del país.

Mientras, Luis Francisco García Cerezo, el embajador español en Libia, argumentaba que no era necesaria una evacuación al considerar los disturbios poco graves.

Sin embargo, en el primer avión fletado por Repsol el pasado 22 de febrero regresaron 61 españoles.

Entre ellos había trabajadores de otras compañías (Sacyr, Cobra y Exxon), dos becarios del Icex, tres monjas de la Caridad y 25 miembros de la embajada española.

La delegación diplomática española abandonaba el país mientras el embajador y la ministra seguían insistiendo en que el resto de españoles se mantuvieran en sus domicilios y hoteles y aumentaran la precaución.

Pero que no fueran al aeropuerto.

--Zapatero reaccionó tarde: el fin de semana del 18 al 20 de febrero, la situación en las calles de Trípoli y del resto de ciudades libias comenzó a descontrolarse.

Empezaron los tiroteos y las primeras muertes.

Los españoles que estaban en el país recuerdan que el ambiente era “muy tenso”.

La embajada española en Trípoli ya había comenzado a recibir un aluvión de solicitudes para abandonar el país, solicitando el apoyo de la diplomacia.

Sin embargo, el primer gabinete de crisis convocado por el Gobierno no llegó hasta el martes 22, cuando la situación se agravó con el duro discurso pronunciado por Gadafi encendió aún más la chispa de la rebelión en Bengasi, la ciudad donde más españoles residen y trabajan de toda Libia.

Zapatero convocó al Palacio de La Moncloa a la Comisión Delegada del Ejecutivo para Situaciones de Crisis, formada por Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, Elena Salgado, Manuel Chaves, Trinidad Jiménez, Carmen Chacón, Ramón Jáuregui, Enrique Serrano (director de Gabinete de Presidencia), el general Félix Sanz Roldán (director del Centro Nacional de Inteligencia) y Antonio Camacho (secretario de Estado de Seguridad).

Pese a todo, los temas principales fueron las revueltas de Egipto y Túnez, y el flujo migratorio que supondría para Europa las revueltas del Magreb.

De los españoles atrapados en el aeropuerto de Trípoli, nada.

--Los vecinos europeos movieron ‘ficha’ pronto: Francia, Alemania, Reino Unido, Italia, Portugal… la práctica totalidad de los países europeos organizaron rápidamente operaciones para repatriar a sus ciudadanos.

En España, Trinidad Jiménez alegó que la Unión Europea estaba organizando las evacuaciones.

Pero lo cierto es que fue una labor que pusieron en marcha los socios.

Todos, menos España.

De hecho, algunos de los primeros en volver a España fueron trasladados a la Península por un avión fletado por Portugal.

-- Un funcionario para evacuarlos a todos: Cuando el resto de países estaban enviando vuelos chárter para traer de vuelta a sus ciudadanos, la embajada española reaccionó enviando un funcionario al aeropuerto de Trípoli para coordinar e informar a los españoles que aparecían por allí buscando vuelos de salida para salir del país.

Y lo que se les decía, según el testimonio de los repatriados, era “buscaos un vuelo comercial”.

-- Sin plan de evacuación: lo más grave, según los españoles que vivieron estos tensos momentos, no fue que España no pusiera en marcha en los primeros momentos un plan de evacuación, sino que ni siquiera existía.

Según confirmaron fuentes diplomáticas, no había ningún plan de evacuación elaborado pese a que el Magreb lleva meses en plena ebullición.

Lo ocurrido en Túnez y Egipto no preocupó a la embajada española en Libia hasta que Gadafi salió a dar su discurso, en el que prometió dar “caza como a ratas” a los que encabezaban las revueltas. Sólo en ese momento, España comenzó a replantearse sus opciones.

-- La primera evacuación oficial, una semana después de los disturbios: la primera operación de evacuación de españoles organizada por Exteriores no llegó hasta el pasado 24 de febrero, cuando el Gobierno envió un avión de la Fuerza Aérea española –un Boeing 707- enviado a Trípoli.

En este avión se evacuaban a 124 personas, de las que 40 son españoles.

Iban acompañados de cuatro miembros de los Grupos de Operaciones Especiales de la Policía Nacional.

Los chinos, camino de Libia



La Marina del ejército popular de liberación chino ha enviado a su fragata Xuzhou, del tipo 054A (clase Jiangkai II), desde el Índico, donde está desplegada contra la piratería somalí, a la costa de Libia para proporcionar apoyo y protección a la evacuación de los ciudadanos de la República Popular de China allí residentes.

Se estima que apenas 6.300 de los cerca de 30.000 chinos que hay en Libia han sido ya evacuados.

Se planea evacuar 15.000.

Según la agencia de noticias Xinhua, la evacuación se está relizando empleando aviones fletados para ese porpósito, las rutas por tierra a Egipto y Túnez, y buques mercantes chinos y griegos.

Bahrain’s king orders political prisoners free


El rey de Baréin ha ordenado este martes la liberación de algunos presos políticos, accediendo así a una demanda planteada por la oposición como gesto de buena voluntad en el intento de entablar conversaciones con los opositores a fin de acabar con las protestas que han entrado ya en su segunda semana.

En una breve declaración difundida a través de la agencia oficial de noticias de Baréin, el rey anunció que había ordenado la liberación de "varios presos" y la conclusión de "varios procesos" seguidos militantes chiítas.

La Unión Europea "reflexiona" sobre la respuesta a las "turbulencias" en el norte de África



- Ok, so what do you do when there’s a war?

- We open a file; we have a meeting; we write a press release in wich we communicate our heartfelt regret.

- And if the war continues?

- In that case, we play hardball; we form a committee, and sometimes even a committee and we request the beligerants to end the carnage.

- And if the war continues?

- Then we send a recommendation, not a request. Do you see the nuance? I’m not afraid to send one, a real recommendation.

Piratas somalíes asesinan a cuatro norteamericanos


In the Name of Allah. Why terrorists do what they do, in their own words.


Vin Sback, In the Name of Allah, Why terrorists do what they do, in their own words :

"I am one of the servants of Allah. We do our duty of fighting for the sake of the religion of Allah. It is also our duty to send a call to all the people of the world to enjoy this great light and to embrace Islam and experience the happiness in Islam. Our primary mission is nothing but the furthering of this religion." - Osama bin Laden, May 1998

Aside from pursuing mass murder plots against innocent populations in every corner of the planet, Islamic terrorists have one other thing in common:

They credit their motivation and success to religion.

This distinguishes Islamic terrorism from mere criminal activity, and it is part of what makes Islam so very, very different from other religions.

Many people would prefer to bury their heads in the sand or look for ways to recast Islamic terror to fit their own political agenda, but the fact is that violent Muslims are quite explicit about the religious certainty that compels and justifies their actions.

The teachings and history of Islam that explain the violence are discussed elsewhere on this site. Here we just want to show that, as far as Islamic terrorists are concerned, their acts are done specifically in the name of Allah and for the cause of Islam and Islamic rule... across the globe.

Afghanistan

"In the name of Allah the Avenger, I swear on the holy book to perform my sacred duty as a soldier of Islam in this Jihad to restore to this world the light of divine justice... Allah demands no less. For to die in the cause is to be sent immediately to paradise."

A Taliban official, explaining why the group is violent.

Algeria

“But the coming Islamic caliphate country will not rise except at the hands of the fighting sect who raises the flag of Allah and Jihad.”

Statement from the Salafi terrorist group, one of several fundamentalist cells responsible for the slaughter of 150,000 men women and children in the 1990’s.

"Our Jihad consists of killing and dispersing all those who fight against Allah and his Prophet."

"Throat-slitting and murder until the power is Allah's!"

Both quotes from leaders of the Armed Islamic Group (GIA). The first spoken by Sid Ahmed Mourad, the second from Abdelkader Hattab.

Chechnya

“True resistance is helped by Allah the Supreme and the battles are for His just cause”

Abu Hafs, Mujahideen and one of the region’s most prolific killer

Egypt

"Allah is our objective, the Quran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, Jihad is our way, and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations."

Credo of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has spawned attacks and numerous subsidiary terrorist organizations

India

“Democracy is among the menaces we inherited from an alien government. It is part of the system we are fighting against… It is not possible to work within a democracy and establish an Islamic system… If Allah gives us a chance, we will try to bring in the pure concept of an Islamic Caliphate.''

"The notion of the sovereignty of the people is anti-Islamic. Only Allah is sovereign.''

Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the leader of the Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist organization.

Yes! We - the terrorists of India – THE INDIAN MUJAHIDEEN, - the militia of Islam whose each and every Mujahid belongs to this very soil of India - have returned, to execute the compulsion of Allah:

"Fight them (the disbelievers), Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and give you victory over them and He will heal the hearts of those who believe." (Qur'an 9:14).

Here we begin ... raising the illustrious banner of Jihad against the Hindus and all those who fight and resist us...

All Praise and Glory be to Allah, Who Alone Helps His slaves, Who Alone Fulfils His Promise, and Who Alone Defeats the enemy....

While hoping for the Help and Victory from Allah we declare that such and more severe attacks shall continue irrespective of what the blamers blame us for.

The hosts (of the Kafir) will all be routed and will turn and flee. [Qur’an 54: 45].

We ask Allah to forgive us and Have Mercy on us and Aid us to conquer the unbelievers and Guide us to raise His Word and degrade His enemies with His Will Alone.

And peace be upon His Messenger, and all those who follow the Guidance.

The Indian Mujahideen, claiming credit for a brutal series of bombings that left dozens of civilians dead and hundreds more in agony.

Iran

“Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those who say this are witless. Islam says: 'Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter their armies.'”

The Ayatollah Khomeini

Indonesia

“Keep on fighting for the application of Islamic law. If this state and nation wants to become great, safe, and at peace then it has to return to Islam one hundred percent without bargaining. If not, then it will be destroyed.”

Abu Bakar Bashir, spiritual leader of the Indonesian Mujahideen

Iraq (Sunni)

“There is no doubt that Allah commanded us to strike the Kuffar (unbelievers), kill them, and fight them by all means necessary to achieve the goal. The servants of Allah who perform Jihad to elevate the word (laws) of Allah, are permitted to use any and all means necessary to strike the active unbeliever combatants for the purpose of killing them, snatch their souls from their body, cleanse the earth from their abomination, and lift their trial and persecution of the servants of Allah. The goal must be pursued even if the means to accomplish it affect both the intended active fighters and unintended passive ones such as women, children and any other passive category specified by our jurisprudence.”

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Sunni terrorist known for cutting captives’ throats

Iraq (Shia)

“My motivation is a sense of duty toward my religious faith to fight against any hostile enemy of Islam.”

Abu Deraa, Shitte terrorist known for drilling into captive’s heads

Iraq (al-Qaeda)

"We are defending Islam and its sanctity”

Woman training to be a suicide bomber

Israel

“The Islamic Resistance Movement: Islam is its way. It is from Islam that it derives its ideas, concepts, and perceptions concerning the universe, life, and man, and it refers to Islam's judgment in all its actions. It is from Islam that it seeks direction so as to guide its steps. “

The covenant of the bloody Hamas terrorist organization (Islamic Resistance Movement)

Jordan

“Terrorism is a badge of honour on our chests until Judgement Day. In the name of Allah, we’re pursuing the path of jihad until we uproot you, exterminate your state until the rule of the king vanishes. We follow the steps of the Prophet (Muhammad)... Allah is our Lord; you have none."

Hassan al-Smeik, leader of the cell that plotted a chemical weapons attack intended to kill 80,000 Jordanians

Lebanon

“We are… linked to the Muslims of the whole world by the solid doctrinal and religious connection of Islam, whose message God wanted to be fulfilled by the Seal of the Prophets, i.e., Muhammad”

From the charter of the Hezbollah terrorist group, which has kidnapped, tortured and killed numerous non-Muslims.

The Netherlands

"What moved me to do what I did was purely my faith. I was motivated by the law that commands me to cut off the head of anyone who insults Allah and his Prophet."

Mohammed Bouyeri, explaining in court why he stabbed Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh to death. (Bouyeri was holding a Qur'an at the time).

Pakistan

"I will go back to wage jihad. I pray Allah fulfils my desire of embracing martyrdom next time,"

Hizbul Mujahideen cadre, when asked why he kills the Indian people

"With regard to Osama and Al-Zawahiri, I never met them, but I have the utmost love and respect for them, because of their enmity towards the Jews and the Christians. The Muslims must be harsh towards the infidels and compassionate among themselves. These two men reflect this Koranic verse... We place our trust in Allah. Soon, we will witness the miracles of Jihad."

By'atullah Mahsoud, the Emir of the Pakistani Taliban

"Our whole struggle is for the enforcement of Sharia law"

Muslim Khan, Spokesperson for the Pakistani Taliban, responsible for hundreds of bombings, shootings and abductions.

The Philippines

“We may be small in number, but we have plenty fighting with us--the angels and the hand of Allah. We dream of an entire Islamic world, and we will achieve it. Allah is with us."

Abu Sayyaf terrorist group leader, Khadaffy Janjalani, responsible for church bombings and beheadings.

Saudi Arabia

"One of the greatest virtues in Islam is jihad for the sake of God. Ramadan is the month of jihad and battles, and most Muslim battles took place during the blessed month. This is your season, o people of jihad. Jihad during the fasting month of Ramadan has a great taste -- for what better way to break your fast than to kill infidels and relish the sound of the weeping of the despicable tyrants and infidels."

Saudi-based terrorist magazine, al-Jihad

Somalia

"And your brothers of the Mujahideen Movement are on their way, going forth in Jihad against the occupiers and disbelievers so that the word of Allah is the highest and there is no more fitnah on earth and the religion is solely for Allah."

Deadly Somali terrorist group calling itself, Youth Islamic Movement

"Know that I am doing this martyrdom operation only for the sake of Allah and for his religion."

A 21-year-old member of al-Shabaab and former British college student who murdered 20 Africans.

Spain

"Allah, may he be praised, said… ‘Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from where they have driven you out; for internal strife [Fitna] is worse than killing.’"

The Qur’anic verse quoted by the Abu Hafs Al-Masri Brigades in explaining the murder of 202 Madrid train commuters

Islamic Jihad leader, Abu Ayman

Thailand

“….Martyrs, how glorious we will be if we fall as warriors of our land. When Martyrs are killed, they are not dead but alive next to Allah. They will watch and listen to every piece of news to see if their children will follow in their footsteps….”

Berjihad di Pattani, “calls for a holy war to liberate Pattani from ‘colonists’. It is liberal in employing metaphoric references and verses from the Quran. ...a significant and clear articulation of the radical religious dimension of the conflict in south Thailand used within the context of Malay-Muslim resentment of the central government. It engages in Takdir (the labeling of fellow Muslims as infidels) and makes direct calls for Martyrs to attack fellow Muslims perceived to be collaborating with the “occupation”, or the Jahili (people of the ignorance). It views the practice of religious obligations of these “hypocrite” Muslims as a disguise hiding hearts filled with fury and hatred against Islam…”

Turkey

“The Koran says: ‘Fight them until evil disappears and all religion becomes Allah's [religion].' The suicide activists who blow themselves up are carrying out the Koran's commandment.’"

Ali Osman Zor, Great East Islamic Raiders Front terrorist organization

United Kingdom

“Our religion is Islam - obedience to the one true God, Allah, and following the footsteps of the final prophet and messenger Muhammad... This is how our ethical stances are dictated. “

Mohammad Sidique Khan, London subway bomber, explaining his motives on a pre-recorded video tape.

"Know that, I did what I did for the pleasure of Allah alone."

From the will of Bilal Abdulla, a Glasgow suicide bomber.

"We are doing this in order to gain the pleasure of our Lord and Allah loves us to die and kill in his path. Anyone who tries to deny this, then read the Koran and you will not be able to deny this because this is the words in the Koran and the words of our the messenger of Allah, prayers and peace upon him."

"We love to die in the path of Allah... On top of this is to punish and to humiliate the Kuffar [non-believer]"

"Thank God Allah accepted my duas [prayers] yeah, and provided me a means to do this."

From the farewell videos of those convicted in the plot to kill thousands of airline passengers over the Atlantic in 2006.

United States

"I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but love for Allah instead. I live only to serve Allah by obeying all of Allah’s commandments, of which I am aware by reading and learning the contents of the Koran.”

Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar, explaining (in his words) “reasons for premeditating and attempting to murder citizens and residents of the United States of America.” He also quoted 141 verses from the Qur'an.

"We, Muslims, are content with God's book, the Quran, to fight you with. God has granted us to fight... In God's book, He ordered us to fight you everywhere we find you... We ask to be near to God, we fight you and destroy you and terrorize you. The Jihad in God's cause is a great duty in our religion.”

The "9/11 Shura Council" - 9/11 planners held at Guantanamo Bay - in a March 2009 letter.

"I wasn't insane or post traumatic nor was I forced to do this Act... [it was] justified according to Islamic Laws and the Islamic Religion. Jihad to fight those who wage war on Islam and Muslims."

Abdulhakim Muhammad, explaining why he gunned down an unarmed soldier outside a recruiting station in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Uzbekistan

"We have declared a jihad to create a religious government in Uzbekistan”

Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan leader, Tahir Yuldeshev

Yemen

"In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious the Most Merciful... Praise is to Allah, the glory granter to Islam with His victory and the disgracer of the unbelief with his Might... and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger who said:

'I have been inspired between the hands of the hour until Allah alone is worshiped and my sustenance has been made under the shade of my spear, and disgrace and humiliation has been prescribed for the one who disobeys my command.'"

al-Qaeda al-Jihad in Yemen taking credit for a brutal suicide attack and quoting the words of Muhammad to explain why.

September 11th Attacks

"We killed them outside their land, praise be to Allah. Today, we kill them in the midst of their own home.

O Allah, revive an entire nation by our deaths. O Allah, I sacrifice myself for your sake, accept me as a martyr. O Allah, I sacrifice myself for your sake, accept me as a martyr. O Allah, I sacrifice myself for your sake, accept me as a martyr.

To the Garden of Eden, our first house. We shall meet in the eternal Paradise with the prophets, honest people, martyrs and righteous people. They are the best of companions. Praise be to Allah. Allah's peace, mercy and blessings be upon you. "

Ahmad al-Haznawi, Flight 93 Hijacker

"Those 19 brothers who left us made efforts and offered their lives for the cause of Allah. Allah has favored them with this conquest, which we are enjoying now"

Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda's Number Two, explaining the motives for the plot.

"Be cheerful, for you have only moments between you and your eternity, after which a happy and satisfying life begins...

"Remember: it is a raid for the sake of Allah. Recite the prayer. As you take the seat, recite the prayer. Mention Allah a lot. When the hijacking begins, "Shout Allah is great because this shout strikes terrors in the hearts of the infidels

"And the moment of death should be accompanied by the basic statement of belief recited by all Muslims at the call to prayer. Seconds before the target, your last words should be, 'there is no god but Allah. Mohammed is his messenger!."

Written instructions to the hijackers.

"Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!"

Last words from the cockpit of Flight 93.

Reunión de Ministros de Interior en Roma mañana


Los ministros de interior de la unión Europea se reunirán en Roma el miércoles para discutir la adopción de medidas cautelares para tratar de evitar una posible avalancha de emigrantes africanos.

El colapso del régimen del coronel Gaddafi podría dar lugar a una oleada de refugiados e inmigrantes ilegales hacia Europa.

Funcionarios de Bruselas creen que, si se derrumba el régimen de Gaddafi, unos 750.000 refugiados podría tratar de cruzar el Mediterráneo hacia el sur de Europa.

Los libios elevan la cifra hasta dos millones, con un gran número de inmigrantes ilegales subsaharianos intentando aprovechando la oportunidad de utilizar un país sin ley como puerta de entrada a Europa.

La Unión Europea y el gobierno de Libia firmaron un acuerdo el año pasado, que ha ayudado a combatir el flujo de inmigrantes ilegales en los últimos meses.

Gadafi ha amenazado con retirar las patrullas fronterizas y costeras, advirtiendo que "Europa dará la bienvenida a los negros" si cesa la cooperación sobre la inmigración que ahora presta Libia.

¿Por qué Baréin? || Why Bahrain?


En julio de 1995 fue reactivada la quinta flota de los Estados Unidos de América, que dirige las operaciones en el Golfo Pérsico, Mar Rojo y el Mar Arábigo.

Su sede se encuentra en la NSA Bahrein, en Manama, Baréin.

Irán no quiere que los Estados Unidos tengan una base allí y la proporción de chiítas y de sunitas entre los musulmanes de Baréin es de aproximadamente un 33 % de sunníes y un 66 % de chiítas...

La población chiíta es la que protesta.

By July 1995, the U.S. 5th Fleet was reactivated, and it now directs operations in the Persian Gulf, Red Sea, and Arabian Sea.

Its headquarters are at NSA Bahrain located in Manama, Bahrain.

The Shia are rebelling.
