Libya is Divided ,Libya isn't One Country

I BEEN TO LIBYA MANY TIMES BEFORE AND AFTER THE FEBRUARY 17 REVOLUTION , THERE IS A HUGE GAP BETWEEN WHAT IS GOING ON GROUND INSIDE LIBYA  AND  WHAT  MEDIA  OR EVEN THOSE WHO TALKS ABOUT LIBYA IN NEWS & THOSE PEOPLE WHO PUBLISHING FANCY COLORED  MAPS & DIAGRAMS  , ANALYZING  SITUATION IN LIBYA .

To understand Libyan situation now& what will happened in near future , we have to know some points connected with EL-Ghaddifi’s Era :

AlGaddifi’s Strategy to Control & Destroy Libya

First important issue we have to know that Libya are based on TRIBAL SYSTEM

1-     Libya has been always  a parted into  two sides { Eastern part  { Tubruk , Derna ,Albayda ,Benghazi , Qaminis ,Ajdabiya ,} and West part { Misratah ,Alkhums ,Tripoli .Zuwarah,Alzawya }

2-     In between east and west parts of Libya  Alghaddifi has given { Surt , Ras lanuf , alburayqah } a special case cities .

3-     AlGaddifi’s strategy.  he was working hard to turn Surt City into being a new Libyan capital  which will allow him to hold tight command of both east and west of Libya , he had given SURT’s people a lot of money and power not because most of them belongs to The tribe of Qadhafi . But also he had given them  high ranks in army ,police . Government & secret service. He never trusted anyone out of his relatives or his tribe .

it was known well in Ghaddifi days that if any Libyan needs to win a government tenders , or any international companies would like to win international tenders must have a connections with Surt’s people

4-     Both “Ras Lanuf & Alburayqah” were the oil & Gas main spot , was controlled by Alghaddifi family non a single oil parallel can go out of Libya till they knows about it ,   

5-     Ghaddifi been working hard to increase the hate between East & West Libya . and he succeeded well in that matter which it been seen after the  17’s of February revolution . each city has established its own armed forces

For ex :

1-     The Shield of Libya - This militia is one of Muslim Brotherhood arms, based in the city of Misurata.

2-     Troops Battalion Tripoli -A militia affiliated with Islamic trends , one of the Muslim Brotherhood arms

For more information can be referred to my article Published on November 19, 2017 { https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/fake-democracy-arab-spring-libya-after-feb-17-2011-sherif-omar/}

The main result of any revolution that people has to be united to win their rights of good living and equal rights. But in Libya it was opposite each city or area has declared war against other area. Most of these armed clashes are based on what Ghaddifi seeded inside the Libyans in his era, each city wants to control oil and gas sources. Wants to control other city by force.

Years after  the Libyan’s revolution armed clashes still going on , yet in 2019 Libya still divided into two governments  but with a major change the national Libyan army led by Gen.Hafter had controlled the eastern part of Libya , and now waging a war against so called “National Accord Government led by Al - Seraj  in western part of Libya  .

In conclusion:

No matter what UN or Western world governments wants to solve the Libyan issue .its so hard because no one knows or even care to understand the hate between East and west Libya As I mentioned before Libya based on tribal system  in order to solve that problem . it is a must to gather the tribes at one issue { Libya First } . the Libyans has to think of their country only not to think about their tribal prides or even their own cities external hate to other cities .  

to be followed ...........
