After eight years of blackmail, intimidation, haggling and wrangling with Libya’s clownish dictator Muammar Gaddafi over the release of 5 Bulgarian nurses, falsely accused of infecting Libyan children with the aids-virus and sentenced to death, Gaddafi’s victims are -finally- on their way home. The EU has caved in and finally agreed to pay the jiziyah, the tribute that Europe -somehow- always paid to the Bey’s of Tunis, while Thomas Jefferson, one of the greatest US presidents, is famously on record with “Millions for defense, not one cent for tribute”-and had America’s first Navy built instead, which shot up Tripoli and Algiers 200 years ago, in order to stop the ‘Algeriennes’ from pirate raids on American merchant ships and enslaving their crews.

“The aircraft of the French republic has taken off from Libya bound for Sofia with the five Bulgarian nurses and the doctor of Palestinian origin on board,” the French presidency said in a statement.
“The French President, Mr Nicolas Sarkozy, and the President of the European Commission, Mr Jose Manuel Barroso, welcome the agreement that has at last allowed this release and the return to Bulgaria of the nurses held for more than eight years, and of the Palestinian doctor,” the statement said.
Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry confirmed the medics had left Libya.
“They have left their airport in Libya and are now flying … We expect in them in Sofia,” Deputy Foreign Minister Feim Chaushev told Reuters.
The medics, who spent over eight years in Libyan jail, were accompanied by EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner and France’s First Lady Cecilia Sarkozy, Chaushev said. The two were in Tripoli to help release the medics, who say they are innocent.
The French statement also welcomed the setting up of improved health care for children suffering from AIDS in Libya.
Libya lifted death sentences against the medics last week and commuted them to terms of life imprisonment.
* Appeasement, cowardice and paying a huge ransom, to get these wrongly accused nurses released from Gaddafi’s jail, the man behind Lockerbie and the La Belle Disco in Berlin-, will not pacify this Libyan terrorist. On the contrary: Get ready for the next attack!
The EU, once again, caves in to a criminal bully and pays millions, many millions in ransom, to Gaddafi to release 5 wretched nurses falsely accused and imprisoned for 8 years. Appeasement is not the way to deal with terror.
When Reagan bombed Gaddafi the little desert rat showed respect. Gaddafi knows he can play with the European dhimmis. They always submit…
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, […..] Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST.- TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE…. Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant … While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”
-John Quincy Adams, from The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam
CNN’s Robin Oakley (appears to be a male) reports:
‘With the release of the Bulgarian nurses all hurdles have been removed to do business as usual with Libya, which has significant oil and gas….blablablahhh….
The 30-second sound-blib made it sound as if Lockerbie and the
La Belle Disco never happened, as if the Bulgarian nurses brought it all upon themselves and, of course, finally, the inevitable ‘if we don’t do it, who will’- BLiar, who represented himself, seemed most concerned to get a piece of the action for British firms since the Italians already had a headstart….
