Libyan House Of Representatives Grants Egypt Right To Military Intervention

Click to see full-size image

On July 13th, the Libyan House of Representatives (based in Tobruk) granted the Egyptian armed forces the right to intervene in the country’s ongoing conflict to protect Libyan and Egyptian national security.

The decision allows Egypt to intervene if the Egyptian armed forces see an imminent threat to the security of the two countries.

The parliament announced that it welcomes the statement made by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi regarding military intervention in Libya, and called for concerted efforts between the two brotherly countries to ensure the defeat of invading occupiers and to preserve national security and stability in the region.

The statement added: “Confronting invaders guarantees the independence of the Libyan national decision, and protects the sovereignty and unity of Libya, as well as the wealth and resources of the Libyan people from the ambitions of the colonial invaders.”

The Libyan parliament stressed that maintaining a fair distribution of wealth and oil revenues and protecting it from armed militias is a legitimate demand made by all Libyan people.

Finally, the statement said that the decision was made because of “blatant Turkish military intervention in Libya, in cooperation with armed militias that are controlling the west of the country under a de facto authority.”

The occupation, the statement said, can only be stopped through concerted efforts between Arab countries.

Hours later, the Supreme Council of Sheikhs said that it supported the statement by the HoR.

At the end of June, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said his country was ready to help the Libyan tribes (most of which support Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA)) in the fight against foreign interference by training and arming them.

On July 11th, al-Sisi also stated that any direct Egyptian intervention in Libya now has legitimacy under international law. According to him, the “red line” for the advancement of troops is the city of Sirte, located about 900 kilometers from the border with Egypt, and the province of Jufra.

On the ground there are currently no clashes, and it is obvious that heavy diplomatic discussions are on-going before a potential push by the GNA and its Turkish support on Sirte.

    Libya can send them a golden engraved invitation, but Egypt can not act without US and Israeli permission as Sisi is their man and Egypt lives on western, UAE and Saudi aid.

            You are the Muslim

        • guest

          Hello there, you are part of the new cache of CIA and NSA trolls that have been recruited to pretend to be Muslims and plant divisive anti-Shia, anti-Russia, anti-Iran and anti China posts and try to befriend Muslims and other people. Your tactics and agenda are very transparent as is your daily defence of Zionism. You fool no one but yourself.

          • The Objective

            Is that all you got to say? Disprove my CIA propaganda then, and provide proofs. I can proof the points I made.

    • The Objective

      They don’t have to. If they are doing this in the interest of the Muslim world, Allah will bless their efforts and their dead will be in aljanna. I wish I were in the Turkish military. This is the kind of battle I’d like to take part in. And I won’t return home until victory or death. There are many willing Muslims ready to fight and die to restore or support Islamic governments like in Libya, Turkey, Qatar, Yemen, and Egypt. Not only the Syrian mercenaries. Turkey should start looking farther than Syria.

          They are too stupid to see it.

          • The Objective

            Like it or not, there is a group of Sunnis who are fiercer than the Shiites against the west. For starters, look at the Taliban.

          • guest

            The CIA created them, just like you.

          • The Objective

            And the CIA has bee fighting them for nearly two decades now, in America’s longest war. What kind of a master-servant relationship is that?

        • The Objective

          Not all Sunnis. Get your facts straight.

          • Lone Ranger

            Every wahabi.
            Whether they are aware of it or not.
            Look at the past 20 years…

          • The Objective

            Why are non-muslims so unaware of the struggle going on in the Islamic world? You think every Sunni is in Western pockets simply because of the devils ruling Saudi Arabia and the UAE? Who listens to Saudi Arabia today? How many Sunni Muslims are helping them in Yemen. We want the Saudi monarchy overthrown. Plus that of the other gulf Arab states except for Qatar and maybe Oman. They devils know this. A large majority of Sunni scholars around the world oppose Saudi and other gulf Arab governments. These zionist-imposed dictators know Sunnis are a greater threat to their rule than Shiites. Why? Because they can simply play the sectarian card and convince their oppressed citizens to oppose Iran based on Shi’ism. With other Sunnis like the Taliban, Turks, Qataris, Yemenis, and Libyans, the sectarian card won’t work. That is the reason these governments are now collaborating with Assad to stop Turkey. If Turkey succeeds in gaining sympathy of the Sunni Muslim world, Saudi Arabia will be in deep shit. Forget this bullshit about Erdogan being controlled by the west. He’s not in their full control. The only edge they use to influence Erdogan’s decisions is to threaten sanctions. It appears the Turkish government is preparing for this eventuality. They are forging ties with Muslim countries around the world, not just Libya, Qatar, Taliban, and Yemen.
            I pray that God strengthens Turkey, guide them to the right part and other Muslims to undertake the process of forming a military Islamic alliance even with just a handful of Muslim countries where an attack on one will be an attack on all.
            Muslims must overlook the economic benefits of trading with the western world. Then their sanctions will have zero effect. There is China to trade with for God’s sake. Why rely on the US dollar when there is a country that we can partner with for all technological needs? We know the west will never help us. Turkey should keep trying to lobby Muslim governments towards a trade alliance first, and then military alliance. With Pakistan in that alliance the US wouldn’t dare use nukes on any member country. Pakistan should transfer nuclear tech to countries like Turkey who are willing to fight in defense of Islam – unlike Shiite Iran that is all bark and no bite.
            The only way out for the Muslim world is the formation of an economic and military alliance, the education of the Muslim population, and a sustained effort towards trade and technology cooperation with China.

          • The Objective

            Are you aware of what Trump said about two years ago? He said the Saudi monarchy wouldn’t survive for two weeks if America were to withdraw it’s military support.
            Does this statement sound like every Saudi Arabian is in support of the kingdom?
            I just pray that the arms embargo on Iran should be lifted. Just like pompeo rightly said, all hell will break loose if Iran were allowed to sell or transfer weapons legally. Iran can then openly arm the houthis without breaking the law and whoever interdicts their arm shipment is subject to the same treatment in the parsian gulf. That’s when the Saudi monarchy will either end the war on Yemen’s term or be overthrown.

        You wish you were part of the Turkish army?? So you aspire to be part of uselessness, and incompetence? They think that antiaircraft systems switch on themselves…. So you must think that Erdogougoun and his family are there for the grater good of the Muslim word…….You must be the rite material for enlisting in that army after all!!!

  • The Objective

    May Allah cause Libya to be the downfall of El-Sisi. The goat fucker is responsible for the death of thousands of Egyptian civilians in 2012/13.
    It is Erdogan’s opportunity to get Egypt bogged down in Libya. Erdogan has the support of millions of Egyptians. A war that further weakens the Egyptian military is good for the Egyptian people. The Egyptian military so dominates everything in Egypt that civilians can never hope to rule in peace.
    Turkey shouldn’t back down. You have the support of much of the Sunni Muslim world. And our prayers will be with you.
    Turkey should deploy enough forces and equipment to take on Egypt on Libyan soil. Invading Egypt isn’t necessary. Their economy is far weaker than Turkey’s as is their industrial base. Turkey may have to deploy the S400 too. May God help the good guys.
    Down with dictators!

      • guest

        lol

  • The Objective

    There is need for an Islamic alliance of sort. Turkey should make greater efforts towards this – something like an Islamic NATO. The following countries can be good candidates: Turkey, Pakistan, Malaysia, Qatar, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Chad, and Indonesia. This cannot be achieved in a few years. There’s need to first educate enough Muslim preachers in these countries, educate women and men regarding Islam, groom Muslim politicians and military leaders. This can take a decade or more, but it’ll bear fruit in the end.
    And educated Islamic ummah cannot be suppressed by any tyrant. If we want solve the current situation of Muslims around the world, teach many the fundamental Islam. People like Sisi and his thugs in the military will be done away with quickly. There are already millions of Egyptians that’ll join our camp.

  • The Objective

    I like Erdogan and will always pray for him despite not being in his country. Because he seems to have accurately diagnosed the problems of the Islamic world. Muslims suffer from lack of Islamic knowledge. Adequate knowledge leads to many pious people in the society. Many pious people leads to Allah’s help for that society and the emergence of pious leaders. Pious Muslim leaders are better at understanding and dealing with the enemies of Islam, and they always win in the end as history shows. That’s what the Muslim world needs. Islamic Knowledge!
    Turkey is currently doing a good job rehabilitating mosques and support Muslim efforts around the world. But here is how Turkey can do it better:
    Build large Islamic universities in Turkey and Qatar for training international and local scholars, teachers, and preachers. Grant easy access for thousands from select countries as I listed in one comment below. This mustn’t be a western-style institution. There shouldn’t be a need for prior education certificates. An oral test and assessment is enough. Organize missions in theses countries with the help of theses scholars. Build local elementary and high schools in these countries with the help of the local scholars. Students can pay and that should take care of the running costs for these schools. Sponsor Islamic local FM channels magazines and newspapers. These are all revenue-generating investments.
    Do this consistently for a decade and see what the result will be.

  • Traiano Welcome

    This is what I said would happen last month, on these forums. This is what I meant!

    It’s on, like Donkey Kong!

  • Fog of War

    However, isn’t the GNA approved by the UN, doesn’t that also include Russia and China ? What if Egypt is being setup to walk straight into a trap ? We all know who would love Egypt to be destroyed .

    • The Objective

      It’s not a trap. Russia will backstab any country for economic or military gain. I used to think Russia is a counterweight to western aggression. Now I see they are just another Imperial power, only a lot weaker than their western counterparts. Thy aren’t likely to make any loyal allies in the middle East or anywhere. No wonder the Soviet Union broke up. If Sisi falls in Egypt, Russia can kiss its stay good bye. They are not helping the Egyptians or Libyans or Syrians. They are just looking for tools to grow their dominance and it seems taking on weaker countries in the middle East is an easy way to do so. If Russia continues along this line it’ll lose Iran, Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Turkey. Cos it doesn’t look like Sisi, Assad, or Haftar will survive the current Islamic awakening sweeping their countries, though with some western meddling.

      • Neurasth

        You sound like a zionist. Always bitching and casting shade on the Russians. Its their favorite tactic. What do you mean Assad wont survive the “Islamic Awakening”? Where have you beens ince 2011? Just look at the map. There’s no “Islamic Awakening” there any longer and its certainly dead in the pit.

        • The Objective

          Are you sure? Do you know how many million Syrians oppose Assad. Why doesn’t he agree to a free and fair election monitored by the UN even when his buddies (Russia, China, and Iran) were the ones who proposed that solution in 2015? Cos he’s sure of losing any nationwide free and fair election in Syria. Forget the shady one he held in 2014. Everyone knows that wasn’t inclusive.
          What about the Americans siezing the oilfields and occupying a large chunk of his country? You think they’ll leave without a war and without Assad bowing to them? What about Turkey? All these people are in Libya for one reason: to force Assad to hold a nationwide election that is free and fair with most Syrians taking part. Turkey said it’ll hand Idlib to any elected government in Syria. Europe and the US will lift sanctions if such election were to occur and a clear winner emerges.
          America has a fixed position in Syria: either an elected government or a break up of Syria.
          Turkey has a softer stance: either an elected and inclusive government in Damascus or you don’t get Idlib back. But Turkey doesn’t favour a breakup. It means Turkey will have little option than pull out of Syria if the US were to leave, cos Turkey prefers a united Syria ruled by Assad than a broken Syria with Kurdistan. This is where America and Turkey differ.
          Looking objectively at the situation I’ll say both the US and Turkey have good reasons to be in Syria. The US has committed uncountable crimes against humanity, but it is not always wrong. If the US is pushing for a government elected by Syrians, then I support that move. Iran should settle its scores with Israel man-to-man, not using Hezbollah and endangering the civilians of Lebanon. It has missiles that can reach any point in Israel – then why use proxies. If you don’t have the balls to fight the Israelis, as you seem not to, then surrender and let other countries who don’t claim to fight Israel have some peace. Lebanon is currently going through hell because of Iran. All for what? Proxy war! Iraq is in danger of another civil war. All for what? Proxy war! Syria is ruined. All for what? Proxy war! And don’t tell me the US started the war in Syria. Iran started it when they used a weak Syria as arms transfer route for Hezbollah. Israel and the US decided to break this route, hence the war in Syria.

          • Fog of War

            ” If the US is pushing for a government elected by Syrians, then I support that move. ”

            Yes, the US is pushing for a ” democratic ” ” free ” government and ” popular” elections. Do you know why ? If not, look at every other ” free ” democracy in the world and observe how they are totally under the control of ZioAmerica and Israhell. Is that what you want for Syria ? Democracy is one the easiest systems to infiltrate and subvert. Why do you think they push on every people in the world ?

          • The Objective

            Unlike the other replies I got on this thread, yours make a lot more sense. Maybe not every people can be governed by democracy.

          • Fog of War

            Although, its not even about the people. Democracies are inherently designed to be corruptible and easily ((( subverted ))). All elections do is divide the population in perpetual political ” combat ” and cause national paralysis. “Democracy ” is the last thing I would wish on any civilization that wants to survive.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Arsehole, you think you are so smart you dumb Jew cunt posting from a small Zionist college in the US backwater. I even know your home address. I had you figured out from get go and your agenda.

          • The Objective

            If you think I don’t know what I am talking about then say it with proofs. When people resort to insults, it means they have nothing meaningful to say. To get such a strong reaction from you I must have touched a raw nerve.
            So which of my points do you disagree with? Say it and ask for proof and I’ll provide.
            You don’t just want to admit that Iran is acting cowardly. You also don’t want to admit that Russia is one bitch of a prostitute. See my example of Russia’s hypocrisy and treachery below:

            Regarding Syria, there are two camps for or against Iran. One for, another against Iran.
            Pro-Iran Camp: (Iran, China, Russia, Hezbollah and PMU)

            Anti-Iran Camp (Israel, America, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, etc.)
            Note that Russia appears in both camps. It allows Israel bomb Iran. Iran is trying to strengthen Syria to be better defended. Russia claims the same.

            It’s a similar case of Russian prostitution in Libya. Russia is laying mines in civilian areas. Russia printed billions of “counterfeit” Libyan currency to support Haftar. Now shop owners in Libya are rejecting the currency.

            Putin is getting it wrong. His country is under some tough sanctions by both Europe and America. Turkey is one of Russia’s top trading partners. Russia will soon invoke the anger of the Islamic world far worse than the US has if it doesn’t check its choice of fighting Turkey.
            For those who aren’t aware, Erdogan is gaining love and support of Muslims faster than any single Muslim leader in the world. See the Twitter uproar about the hagia Sofia mosque. As of last year, Turkey has an active presence in at least 10 Muslim countries.

            So my friend, I am not claiming to be smart. I am telling you what is taking shape currently. Russia is making a big mistake. Turkey will soon dominate the Sunni Muslim world. Russia will suddenly find itself in an unfavourable position in the Muslim world as most Sunnis are in favour of Turkey’s policies for reviving Islam.
            I think Russia is a more dangerous threat to the Sunni Muslim world than the US an Europe
