The Vice Chief of the questionable Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC), Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, was attacked during his visit to the University of Benghazi by angry students.

The speculation about this attack in the Libyan city of Benghazi spread quickly and wide. What is really behind the attack – or even the better question: Who was behind this attack in Libya?

The fact is that Mr. Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, the Vice Chief of the dubious Libyan National Transitional Council, has been attacked while his visit of the University of Benghazi; despite or because of the fact that he was accompanied by armed bodyguards.

But this should really not be the only explanation of the attack on the Vice Chief of this Libyan National Transition Council by angry students. Maybe this is just an outcry of students against the strange developments in their country, Libya.

Regardless of the motives behind the deed, it is indeed directed against the questionable Libyan Transitional Council.

Another explanation about the motives of this attack could be that Salafists (Salafiyah / Salafis) and other Islamistic movements are behind this attack on Mr. Ghoga. Why? Because Mr. Ghoga was one of the few members of this dubious National Transitional Council (NTC) within Libya, who are against the mixing of religion and politics.

In contrast, many seem, especially in Benghazi, to want a return to the Islamic Sharia, the anchoring of Islam as state religion of Libya in the new Constitution and, of course, a legislation in accordance with Sharia. Another possibility is that the students at the University of Benghazi wanted to blow off steam, and also wanted to make clear, that they have a lot of criticism for the Transitional Council.

Five months after the dubious Libyan Transitional Council has begun their work within Libya, the primary care mechanisms are still not operating in Benghazi. In contrast, disappears in a strange way a lot of money into the ranks of the Libyan Transitional Council. Not to mention, that a lot of people consider Mr. Abdel Hafiz Ghoga as a traitor.

Even in 2009, Ghoga praised the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi (Qaddafi) and worked willfully for the finally murdered leader. Mr. Ghoga was among the first people who have changes the sides, but truly not because he had the welfare of the Libyans on his mind. Just for “benefits”, of course.

So there could be different motivations behind the act at the University of Benghazi. Whether the truth is coming to light is debatable. Even more questionable is whether the Western media will report about this – with the truth in mind and for its readers and viewers. If they are not convinced that this truth is good for propaganda purpose they might not use it for their (questionable) stories. The attack itself is more spectacular than a possible explanation.

Of course, it seems that they stick to the speculations and do not forget about, to mention, that some protesters within Benghazi also shouted “Islam, Islam”. According to some questionable sources, at least 3,000 people have called for the introduction of the Islamic Sharia law in Libya. But finally, they are purchased protesters by the Chairman of the questionable Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC), Mustafa Abdul Jalil. This dubious leader announced in October, 2011, that the future rights in Libya will mainly be based on the Sharia. Maybe that would be an explanation for the missing amounts in Libya – but this is pure speculation.

A sad fact is that Libya is regressing. Introduce the sharia as the main source of legislation, clearly shows the direction in which Libya will evolve. Libya returns to the religious middle Ages and won`t ask its people anymore about their wishes and imaginations for the country. Or at least less questions about their wishes for their personal life.

Is it really lawful to speak about a “liberated Libya”? Not at all.

Although the announcements and the use of Belhadschs in Tripoli should be already worrying enough, they further foment the uncertainty by calling the Gaddafi-loyalists a danger.

Sure, the Pro-Gaddafi people are a threat to the Islamistic group, which easily has gained power with the huge support and weapons of NATO.

The Islamization of Libya is becoming increasingly clear. Similar trends are also expected in Egypt or to fear, even if it is still denied. The Salafists and Muslim Brotherhood have won the majority in the Egyptian elections. Even the Ennahda party in Tunisia, which sells themselves as a relatively liberal party, is finally an Islamist party.

The Tunisian party of Ennahda has developed and organized themselves so well in short time, that they were quickly able to be financially supported by Qatar. One can even expect that Qatari money will also flow (or already flows) to Egypt. It is no secret that also Qatar was behind the events (bombing) in Libya and the murder of the former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

Will North Africa become an enclave of Qatar, too?
