Michael Totten » Who Are the Libyan Rebels? Allah saved us, he sent us French and British and American planes like angels

Michael Totten » Who Are the Libyan Rebels?

On the ground w/ rebels in Libya,
About the Islamists—there are radical elements amongst the rebels, to be sure, but they are a minority, and they’re all grateful to the West at the moment. You would be amazed to see the number of people around here waving Western flags and thanking the West, especially France.

In Benghazi, every person I’ve met so far has insisted on showing me the bridge in town where the Qaddafi troops arrived and started firing—and that bridge is actually inside Benghazi—saying he would cleanse the city “street by street, and house by house.” They all say, "Allah saved us, he sent us French and British and American planes like angels“, Alhamdulillah.”
