A repeating pattern when dealing with the Musulman:
Blair pressed on prisoner exchange deal
THERE were renewed calls today for Prime Minister Tony Blair to explain fully a prisoner exchange deal with the Libyans, amid claims that the Lockerbie bomber was central to the agreement.
Number 10 has denied claims that Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, serving life in a Scottish jail for the 1988 outrage, is included in the memorandum struck last month.
First Minister Alex Salmond said he wanted an answer “forthwith” to a letter he had written protesting to the Prime Minister about the deal.
Mr Salmond suggested the arrangement could lead to the transfer of Megrahi and complained Scotland was not consulted in advance.
Sources close to the agreement made on May 29 were today reported to have said the Lockerbie bomber was the “whole point” of the talks in Libya.
The source said: “Megrahi was the whole point of the talks as far as the Libyans are concerned.
“It was made perfectly clear to the British officials involved in the talks that the whole aim for them was to get Megrahi back.”
Responding to the claim, a spokesman for the First Minister said: “We believe that the Prime Minister must answer the substantive questions from the First Minister in very earliest course.”
Here you can watch ‘injection’- the real life story of the accused nurses in Gaddafi’s jail:
Injection is the real-life story of six health care workers falsely accused and jailed by an Arab dictator, the deplorable conditions that led to their arrest, and the simple solution that might have prevented not only this injustice, but millions of needless infections.
In Libya in 1999, five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor were arrested and convicted of infecting over four hundred Libyan children with HIV in a Benghazi hospital. Libyan dictator Moammar Khadaffi proclaimed before the trial that the nurses conspired with the American CIA and the Israeli Mossad to maliciously infect the children
The practice of taking hostage’s and then bartering for something they want is a time honored tradition in islam, and considered business as usual.It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what an appropriate response should be if your intent is to dissuade them from this proud part of the islamic culture.
Gaddafi Goes for the Shakedown
News of the reformation of Libyan strongman “Colonel” Muammar Gaddafi (He of the Many Spellings) may have been premature. He now says he’ll release the doctor and nurses ludicrously convicted of injecting children with AIDS, if the EU and the US compensate the “victims’ families,” and release the terrorist convicted of the Lockerbie bombing: Bulgaria: Qaddafi Wants Money and Lockerbie Attacker for Nurses’ Release. Muammar Qaddafi has officially stated his conditions for the release of the five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor sentenced to death in Libya, a website of the Libyan opposition claims.
Cited by the Bulgarian national radio, the site claims that Qaddafi has sent an official note to the EU country members and the US, requesting compensations for the families of the HIV-infected children and the release of the terrorist from Lockerbie.
In his note Qaddafi admitted that there were problems in his country’s health system. He vowed that if Bulgaria pardons Libya’s debt, then Libya would offer the Balkan country options to take part in programs for fixing Libya’s health system.
But chances are good that Gaddafi will get his way:
Libya, BP to sign $900m oil deal
Libya announced on Tuesday it will sign a $900-million exploration deal with British energy giant BP, which London says plans to return the North African country after a 33-year absence.
“We are going to sign with BP an oil-exploration and -prospecting accord on Libyan territory worth $900-million,” said the head of Libya’s National Oil Corporation, Shokri Ghanem.
The announcement came ahead of a visit to the oil-rich nation by British Prime Minister Tony Blair who is starting a tour of Africa before he leaves office next month.
“BP will be announcing that they’re going back into Libya,” a spokesperson for Blair said, confirming that the outgoing premier was due to hold talks with Libyan leader Moammar Gadaffi.
There has not yet been any official confirmation from BP itself.
The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries member is the African continent’s second-largest oil producer at 1,7-million barrels per day. It also has natural-gas reserves estimated at 1 314-billion cubic metres.
The Financial Times reported in January last year that BP had entered negotiations over a multibillion-dollar gas-exploration and -development agreement in Libya.
It said discussions involved a liquefied-natural-gas project that could supply the North American or European markets.
Libya is seeking massive investment to boost its energy sector, whose development was stunted under United Nations sanctions imposed after a United States airliner was downed in 1988 by a bomb over the Scottish town of Lockerbie, killing 270 people. — Sapa-AFP
