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.
Libya is on the brink of civil war as the battle for control of the country intensifies. (ABC)

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Islamic community group that planned to present a peace prize to the son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi has withdrawn his nomination after his support for the violent suppression of demonstrations in his homeland.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!
