16, 2011 "Tripoli Post" -- At a press conference on Wednesday near the
United Nations headquarters in New York, Minister Louis Farrakhan,
leader of the Nation of Islam expressed support for Libyan leader
Muammar Al Qathafi and condemned the NATO-led bombing of Libya,
UN-sanctioned military strikes and operations against the North African
Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark also addressed the press and called for an end to the strikes and the war on Libya.
Minister Louis Farrakhan lambasted the U.N., the U.S., and the "coalition of demons" that he said makes up NATO. He accused them of trying to assassinate Muammar Al Qathafi, the third time they have tried to do it, he said, and promote regime change in Libya.
Farrakhan said the United Nations and its 15-member Security Council, who he referred to as "the terror council," have no legitimate right to exist for passing the resolution that has allowed NATO to take military action in Libya.
The Muslim clergyman said he was at the conference to discuss the current state of affairs in Libya, and the actions taken by the UN with respect to the UN Resolution 1973. He said he was addressing his remarks to the United Nations and all those who have joined in destroying the Libyan leader, Muammar Al Qathafi and the Libyan Jamahiriyah.
Requesting justification for such an action by the UN Security Council, against Al Qathafi, he asked that if the resolution was taken to protect the civilian population of Libya from the so-called evil intentions of the leader in Libya, why then is NATO, under the auspices of the Security Council forgetting about humanitarian concerns and now using Resolution 1973 as a pretext to assassinate Muammar Al Qathafi and create regime change.
He went on to ask the UN why it is fostering, through NATO, armed rebellion to create civil war, knowing that in a civil war, the humanitarian concerns go out the window.
He said the actions of NATO, along with the US, Qatar, Canada, Britain, France and Italy and members of the Arab League engaging in the errant behavior are creating conditions that will ultimately bring about the destruction of the UN and all those engaged in this action, blinded by arrogance and the sense of power of these nations that they can do what they will.
