Situation in Libya, the Jews of Libya, and Civil War

Reposted from Rabbi Kaufman 

Jewish Libyan group: Bloodshed greater than reported


There is interesting background information on the Jewish community of Libya and also some history of modern Libya in the article. The author is clearly not a believer that the popular uprising in Libya is a democratic one, but instead is part of a civil war between tribes with the opposition being "Political Islamists." Where have we heard this story before???


Again, we can only hope that democratic reforms and not a new and potentially worse type of tyranny are in the offing should the horrible dictatorship fall.
