We have compiled the following reports, citing their original sources, that expose secret agreements made by the NTC for Israel, France and possibly Iran, to have military bases on Libyan soil. We also challenge Hezbollah’s legitimacy as a credible revolutionary movement against imperialism and Zionism.
An Israeli military base in Libya near the border with Algeria
19 May, 2011
According to a document written in Hebrew, an agreement has been signed between Israel and the National Transitional Council (CNT) in Benghazi, Libya, concerning the creation of a Zionist military base in the Jebel Akhdar region, for a period of thirty years in case they come to power
The document contains the word “Israel Defence Forces”, received by a Ukrainian officer, and reveals the contents of the agreement signed between Israel and the National Transition Council of Libya in Benghazi, which consists of creating a military base on the Libyan border, while Israel supported the Libyan opposition by providing weapons, making pressure on European countries to recognize the CNT and training the members of the opposition in order to prepare a strong army.
The intensification of NATO air strikes against the pro-Gaddafi forces to force him to withdraw is part of the strategy.
The document in question has raised many doubts, according to observers, as it is written from left to right. No reaction from the Libyan opposition in Benghazi to confirm or deny these reports.
In case the information is confirmed, Algeria would be most affected by the presence of Zionists on the borders with Libya and this will allow the organization of the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat, now called al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) to have more weapons to carry out its criminal operations in the region, after its activities had been extended to drugs and weapons trafficking. The terrorist organization will find an environment conducive to business in the shadow of the Zionist presence; especially that Algeria is the country most hostile to the Zionist entity.

The following report supports the assertion regarding the presence of Hezbollah in Libya (Misrata) during NATO’s war of aggression. If it is true that Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iran supported NATO, Al Qaeda and Israel, this would utterly destroy any credibility they have as the “Axis of Resistance” to imperialism and Zionism.
Iran Has Several Military Bases in Libya (Caution on this as the source is Al Arabiya)
February 27, 2011
In an interview today on the Al Arabyia news network, an informed source within the Revolutionary Guards Corps revealed that Iran has several military bases in Libya.
The source, who requested anonymity due to his sensitive position within the Guards, elaborated further that the Iranian military bases are located mostly along Libya’s borders with the African countries of Chad and Niger. From there, he said, the Guards actively smuggle arms and supply logistical assistance to rebellious groups in the African countries.
According to this source, Guards enter Libya under the guise of oil company employees. Most of these companies are under the control of the Revolutionary Guards.
It is important to note that Nigerian officials recently confiscated an Iranian arms shipment destined for Gambia. The weapons included mortars, rockets, and shells for anti-aircraft guns and were hidden in containers marked building materials. Nigerian officials have accused a suspected member of the Guards and a Nigerian of illegally importing arms and have set the trial for later this year.
If Iran actually had bases established in Libya under the cover of oil companies, (as early as 2006) why would Iran support the NATO war against a government Al Arabiya alleges they had friendly relations with?
If there were contracts between Iran and the Jamahiriya, then Iran certainly betrayed the people of Libya by supporting the forces that destroyed their country, claiming hundreds of thousands of lives.
As in Iraq, we are going to divide the country: Useful areas of Libya will be secured but the rest of the country will be delivered to instability. It is spectacular to see how the Western powers want to print a situation of permanent war in Libya. For a year, information from the installation of a military base in the country western North Africa, is broadcast repeatedly and knowingly. And by dint of repeating things, we finally admit as stringent as they are. Because they arrived on NATO tanks, so indebted, the new Libyan leaders were persuaded by the possibility of a military base on their soil without worrying about the reaction of people and immediate neighbors including Algeria with which their countries sharing nearly a thousand kilometers of borders.
Ads proliferate and collide leaving predict the roar of engines at our southern borders. In its edition yesterday, Brother Arabic Ennahar reported that French experts are currently in Libya and exploring the possibility of creating a French military base in the country. This database is built according to the same source, around Sirte and Lahnout Rass, two regions rich in hydrocarbons. The French delegation arrived on August 27, Libya. In response to this information, a senior official of the Libyan army argued that the French mission was limited to military training and a contribution to improve the situation after the war. Originally it was NATO to who wanted a place in Libya for a portion of its military arsenal. On January 27, the French newspaper Mediapart one line, taking the TV “Russia Al Youm” reported that NATO intends to create this military base in Benghazi or Tripoli. The same source states that this request was made by the Americans. Pentagon military doctrine based on the principle of the long war, does not clutter of detail when it comes to search for oil. A few days after this announcement about NATO, the media reported the installation of an Israeli military base. The information was released by the Libyan official television channel Al Jamahiriya published by the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot.
Both media have quoted a confidential document relating signing of an agreement between the National Transitional Council (NTC) and Israel for the installation of a military base in the Jebel Akhdar (Green Mountain), near the Algerian border . As a neighboring country and neighbor, Algeria was the first country to be worried by a possible outcome of these projects military base. As military experts including Swedes, have suggested that the first mission of this foundation is to protect Libya against any foreign aggression. But what is foreign threats Algeria to Libya? In fact, the course of the project is to create a situation of constant tension in the region and maintain a division inside the heart of the Libyan society.
First, to regional tensions with neighboring Algeria, it will be fueled by the omnipresent threat border by a Western army. A presence that irritates the highest point in Algeria makes the national sovereignty, an immutable principle. As for the internal division, it will be maintained by creating a rivalry between the pros and cons, the foreign military presence on Libyan soil. For some of the Libyans, the existence of any military base on its territory will be synonymous with weakness and a lack of sovereignty. So, it will lead to the creation of two areas in Libya: on area which will be secured, that where there are fields and oil sites, useful resources. The other region, the rest of the country will be delivered to instability, terrorist attacks, rebel groups and the explosions. The Libya will be the copy of the Iraq. Today, Baghdad awash bombs and explosions while Kirkuk, the oil-rich North, flowers in total security. So goes the world.

The Daily Star
April 14, 2011
BEIRUT: Hezbollah denied Thursday allegations by a Libyan official that some of its members were fighting alongside insurgents in the city of Misrata in Libya, Hezbollah said in a statement.
“Hezbollah denies such accusations and considers them as baseless,” Hezbollah’s public relations office said in the statement.
Libyan Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim said Wednesday that elements of the powerful Lebanese party were fighting alongside the insurgents in Misrata, 200 kilometers east of Tripoli.
“The snipers in Misrata are elements of Hezbollah. This is not an anecdote, it’s real,” he declared, adding that Western intelligence agencies were aware of the participation of Hezbollah in the events in Misrata.
Kaim also accused Qatar of providing rebels in the east of the country with French-made Milan anti-tank missiles.
“Qatar sent French Milan missiles to the rebels in Benghazi,” the eastern city that serves as their base, Kaim told a news conference, adding that 20 Qatari experts were also in the city to train some 700 rebels.

Hezbollah Supports the War Against Libya
UN Security Council resolution 1973 was proposed by France, Lebanon, and the United Kingdom.
Nasrallah is a treacherous, cunning, double-dealing fanatic. In his own words, hear how he supported the Arab spring knowing damn well these were U.S., Qatar, Saudi and Israeli destabilisations. He ignores the loss of life and catastrophic devastating outcome of the regime change agenda.
