Sydney Sheik wants to die.
But before he dies, he wants aid. Or money. Democracy. Or something:
Sheikh Zuway says the international community needs to do more.
“People here, they did not hear anything about Australia … they are a good people, yet why they did not do anything? Why didn’t they send us some aid, some[one] very high up [in] responsibility? he said.

A PROMINENT Islamic community group that planned to present a peace prize to the son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi has withdrawn his nomination after his support for the violent suppression of demonstrations in his homeland.
(Prominent? Â What makes a group of Â bludgers prominent?)
Keysar Trad, from the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, confirmed his organisation had intended to award Saif al-Islam Gaddafi its Champion of Cultural Inclusion prize for 2011.
He had been nominated by members of the Libyan community in Australia for his work freeing political prisoners detained for opposing his father’s regime and securing the release of Bulgarian nurses wrongly accused of infecting children with HIV.
Hmm, what a racket that was. His father created a problem that only his favorite son could solve? How slick!
“He was seen as a progressive; he had worked to improve relations with the West, but he had us all fooled,” Mr Trad told The Australian. “Honestly, we are all shocked. What he is doing in Libya is completely unacceptable.
“A worthy recipient of this award would have defected on the first day and criticised what his father’s regime is doing. Anything short of that is not good enough.”
Saif, 38, is Colonel Gaddafi’s second son and is regarded as a key political adviser.
Saif has been very active supporting the global jihad for many years. That SOB has a lot of blood on his hands….
In recent interviews he has denied the death of civilians , but at the same time has been filmed telling supporters his father’s regime would provide them with weapons to help quell the uprising.
The Islamic Friendship Association is yet to confer the prize on a new recipient, which is awarded for those who help resolve conflict through dialogue.

Amnesia under fire:
London, 4 March (AKI) – Libyan medical teams have told Amnesty International how they came under fire from pro-Gaddafi security forces on Thursday while carrying out their medical work.
For all I care they can shoot them all. Amnesia has never done anything useful in the counter jihad.
Thanks to Aussie we have a whole dossier on Trad:
