Imam, a former military official, murdered in Benghazi
[Libya Herald] An Imam, also a former senior military official from Benina Air Force base, was murdered today in Benghazi when an bomb exploded beneath his car.

Musta Faraj Al-Fitouri was killed instantly when the device went kaboom!, spokesperson for Benghazi Joint Security Room (BJSR) Abdullah Zaidi told the Libya Herald. The incident happened in Benghazi's Sal Mani district.

Fitouri, who retired in 1988, was an expert in arming military bases with appropriate weapons, Zaidi said. Since retiring, he had become an Imam at a mosque in the Fabri district of Benghazi.

#2  No. In this case it's part of an overall objective by Ansar al Sharia to carve out an independent state in the vacuum created by a "Responsibility to Protect" doctrine that was neither responsible nor protective.

Ansar al Sharia is doing what what the Sandanistas, ZANU-PF, NPA, Shining Path, the Kurds, et cetera, have been doing for decades.

But that's considering history. Posting rote drivel is much easier.

#1  You ever get the impression that Moslems just don't have the basic character for governing any other way than "I keel you !" ?

It may have something to do with the character of Islam itself.
