Lizzie Phelan has given a report that confirms an earlier report
that was given by Mathaba Libya Coordinator and also a young member of the Libyan Army: Misrata has been
liberated by loyalist volunteers of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and the Libyan Defence Forces.
says, in her report, that this has been confirmed also by Dr.
Moussa Ibrahim, the honest Jamahiriya media spokesperson.
Earlier reports had been circulated and reached pub.mathaba.net but not passed for publication as unverified claims
that "hundreds" of U.S. soldiers had entered Misrata and were reports meant
to create confusion.
Reports in NATO media outlets as always claiming that the tebels (terrorist rebels) are about to "liberate" Tripoli when they are in complete disarray, were also designed to create confusion however they have no effect on Libya but are aimed at the foreign supporters of the tebels.
Chinese media too has echoed these reports, we assume because the Chinese media often simply echoes western media in their reports without checking of facts. After China allowed the F-UK-USA alliance to enter African sovereign air space and massacre Libyans, almost 2 million Chinese have been affected adversely.

While the journalists suffering from cabin fever in Tripoli’s Rixos hotel, publish their dreams that imperialism’s lackies (the rebels/rats "tebels") have taken Zawiya, Ghuriyan and Sorman, they are ignoring a decisive moment in the crisis.
That is the liberation of the hitherto rebel-held area of Misratah. Last night the Libyan army moved into the centre of the city and now the rebels are trapped between Misratah and Tawergha. 75 per cent of the city has been secured including the port, which was a lifeline for the rebels to receive shipments of arms and other supplies, as well as being a key transport route for them.
Leaders of Libyan tribes hold a press conference
This was confirmed today by government spokesman Dr Moussa Ibrahim and at a press conference by tribal leaders of up to 200 Libyan tribes. This includes the leaders of four of the largest Libyan tribes which make up half the Libyan population: Wafalla, Tarhouna, Zlitan, Washafana. They have all given the allegiance of their tribes to the leader Muammar Gaddafi.
The tribal leaders also confirmed that Zawiya, Ghuriyan and Sorman, are secure, in contrast to claims by foreign reporters in Tripoli and Djerba (Tunisia) that they have been taken by the rebels. There are pockets of rebels in these areas, but they are isolated and surrounded by the Libyan army and Libyan tribes. But of course, the claims of some mainstream journalists who have next to no knowledge of Libya will determine the orientalist public opinion of the west. These claims stand in stark contradiction to the reports of the Libyan tribes adhwho of course know their land with great intimacy.
Leader of the Tawergha tribe
It is clear that these claims were designed to try and boost the
moral of the rebels which just goes from one disaster to another, and
also to try and create panic amongst the Libyan population. Also, they
have been desperately trying to secure some victory before August 17th
(17 day of Ramadan), a very important date in the Islamic calendar. This
was the date of Prophet Muhammad’s victory in the Battle of Badr.
However, all the best efforts of the international press to create
confusion and panic on the ground and Libya are always swiftly turned
around by a speech by Leader Muammar Gaddafi. This was delivered last
night by telephone to supporters that had flocked to Green Square. He
reasserted his calls for the Libyan people to remain steadfast in
defeating NATO’s allies on the ground and NATO itself.
So the media war goes on. And in case anyone is still actually
watching Al Jazeera, which has been at the centre of the conspiracy
against Libya, here Press TV’s Afshin Rattansi screens footage of an Al
Jazeera editorial meeting with the Emir of Qatar and none other than
Israel’s Tzipi Livni.
From 9 mins and 11 secs:
Just to clear up some more crap coming out in the international
press: The interior minister Nassr al-Mabrouk which the western press is
claiming has “defected” is ***live*** right now (3.05 am Libyan Time)
on Libya’s most popular talk show saying he left because he had to go
for an operation and he is still 100 per cent with Gaddafi.
Finally, we are still waiting for absolute confirmation of reports
that rebel commander Khalifa Hefter has been captured by pro-Gaddafi
forces. This would obviously plunge the rebels into further disarray
following the assassination of other the former top rebel commander Abd
al Fatah Younis by Al Qaeda (which runs throughout the rebel ranks).
Hefter was living in Virginia for 20 years working as a CIA agent, right
up until the crisis began when he swiftly returned to Libya to join the
Mathaba: Note to the gullible western tell-lie-vision watchers. What has been going on since March when NATO started to bomb Libya, is that tebels under massive air support of NATO which carries out massive bombings of towns in order to drive out the citizens and the Libyan defence forces, move in for a few hours along with western journalists and take some photo shots to show they have "liberated" that particular town. Those reports then make it to prime time tell-lie-vision news. But:
What the western "news" media editor's do not allow to be shown to you after that is the proofs that always just hours later, the tebels flee again as the Libyan defence forces and population move back in, their houses having been ransacked by the tebels. If you want to have an idea of the level of support for Qaddafi within Libya, but also to just get a clear picture of what is going on there, and to see what you are never shown on tell-lie-vision, just take a look at www.bit.ly/LibyaTruth
The reason NATO cannot win this war without dropping nukes on the entire population, is because it is the majority of the population that makes up the self-governing direct democracy "Jamahiriya" as well as the defence forces. A cursory look at Libyan history and unity against foreign invaders will show that NATO has no option but to withdraw, or continue massacres that are hour by hour increasing the level of support not only within Libya and Africa, but now worldwide, for the Libyan Jamahiriya and its direct participatory democracy.
