I Am Booking My Next Vacation in Libya

If this is how Libyans receive convicted terrorists and mass murderers, then just imagine how they treat the paying tourists?

A crowd of thousands, many waving Scottish flags, gathered at Tripoli airport to welcome Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi as he stepped down from Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s private jet to the strains of patriotic music.

He had changed from a white tracksuit and baseball cap into a dark suit and tie during the flight and was leaning on a gold-rimmed walking stick as he emerged from the aircraft to be hugged by Colonel Gaddafi’s son. He was then taken in a motorcade to the city centre, where the main square was lit up in green and blue in preparation for a celebration that included a feast and laser show. The pan-Arab television channel Al-Jazeera reported that al-Megrahi’s car was held up along the way by the throng.

Also, mental note: if I’m ever going to murder someone, I’ll make sure I do it in Scotland. That way, I’ll only go to jail for 0.03 years. I think that works out to 12 days in prison per murder victim, which is what Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi received for killing 270 people.

    The majority of Muslims are peaceful, Stan.

    If the the majority of adherents to any of the major world religions acted out violence, we’d all be seriously f****d. (As it is, we’re only somewhat screwed).

    That said, the Libyans’ red-carpet greeting for a convicted terrorist and mass murderer blew my mind. Disgusting.

    A slap in the face to all Western societies. If this is what the future of Western Civility and compassion looks like, the Islamist may yet attain the global caliphate predicted by Mawdudi in 1948.

    I thought it was a joke at the begining but it turns out to be true, something that made me dissapointed even if I am not westerner. I think the truth about the case is lost!

    Even though he is dying,he should not be trusted and he should still be monitored.
