    During his visit to Rome in August 2010 Colonel Muammar Gaddafi spoke at a ceremony in Rome and warned
    , “We don’t know what will happen, what will be the reaction of the white and Christian Europeans faced with this influx of starving and ignorant Africans.” We are fortunate in that we live in a society where we can easily dismiss this as a racist statement. That is because we have heard it before from far-right and fascist groups in the UK and Europe.

    Although Gaddafi styled himself as a fellow “Brother” to black Africans and was even bestowed the ceremonial title of Africa’s King of Kings by the West Africa Conference of Chiefs, Kings and Sultans, he presided over a society where some of the worst forms of racial prejudice and racist attitudes and practices towards black Africans and others became normalised and part of the mainstream. In 2000 about 5,200 Ghanaians fled Libya after racist violence against blacks that left more than 135 dead and many more seriously injured. George Auther, one of the victims, was quoted as saying, “The problem is, the Libyans don’t like blacks.”

    There have since been many reported cases of racist violence against black Africans in Libya. On 16 February 2010 the UN Human Rights Council issued a written statement asking Libya to “end its practices of racial discrimination against black Africans, particularly its racial persecution of two million black African migrant workers.”

    The state of Israel does not support Kadafi but some corporations which fear a takeover by radical Islamists connected with AQIM.

    Kadafi himself is no true "Arab" as far as many Israelis are concerned.

    The Roots of the Libyan Revolution can be traced to Kadafi's own divide and rule tactics which has resulted in the suppression of the majority tribe, the Warfallah.

    "The Warfalah tribe is one of the tribes opposed to the government. The link between it and the government was almost severed after the regime discovered the existence of an organization led by officers from that tribe within the armed forces. As a result, a large number of them were arrested and some were executed. That led to major confrontations.

    A 1995 Africa Confidential report on Moammar el Gadaffi's [sic] political and ethnic alliances in Libya reports the following:

    Except for Sanoussi (and his cousin, Jalloud), few key figures belong to major ethnic groups other than Gadaffi's Gadadfa. Gadaffi has gradually prised out those from other major groups. Leaders in the Revolutionary Committee movement are from smaller, 'subject' tribes or else have no strong ethnic affiliation (4 Aug. 1995, 4)."
