She is elegant, well educated; smart enough to cope with any international community, and above all, Ayesha Gaddafi [some say Aisha Gaddafi or Ayesha Qattafi], the only daughter of ‘former’ Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi is truly possess an extremely seducing quality. People in today’s media or those angry mobs on the streets of Libya may call her “sexy woman” or “diva of luxury”, but reality is Ayesha is possibly one of the finest Arab daughters in today’s world, who has unimaginable courage and brilliance. A young woman, born in 1976, has accomplished so much in international arena, including lately courageously facing the most adverse days of her loving father. People may brand me as Gaddafi fanatic or wrongly fan of Ayesha – but the total reality is, Ayesha Gaddafi really deserves admiration from everyone, especially women, for showing to the world, when sons of a father mostly try hiding in holes during his bad times, the only daughter never did the same thing. She stood up and fought and still is fighting. Even in recent past, Ayesha Gaddafi was seen as the most potential successor to her father, in if that even turned true, she would be the only Muslim female head of the government in the Arab world.

Ayesha being trained in the Libyan army got promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General, which she is holding till date. She has been the goodwill ambassador of the United Nations, philanthropist, humanitarian and a lawyer by profession. She was appointed as the United Nations Development Program National ‎Goodwill Ambassador for Libya on July 24, 2009, primarily to address the issues of HIV/AIDS, poverty and women’s rights in Libya, all of which are culturally sensitive topics in the country. In February 2011 the United Nations stripped Ayesha of her role as a goodwill ambassador. She was placed under a travel ban on February 26, 2011, under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1970. This resolution by UNSC as well as her exclusion from being the goodwill ambassador was politically motivated, as United States and NATO were jointly supporting the anti-Gaddafi rebels in Libya and they were wholeheartedly looking for ouster of Muammar al-Gaddafi from the leadership in Libya.

Goodwill Ambassador is a collective term sometimes used as a substitute honorific title or a title of honor for an Ambassador of Goodwill; but, most appropriately for a generic recognition, it is a job position or description that is usually indicated following the name of the individual recognized in the position. Goodwill ambassadors generally deliver goodwill or promote ideals from one entity to another, or to a population. Ayesha has served as a mediator on behalf of the government with European Union corporations.

In 2000 after sanctions were imposed on Iraq, Ayesha Gaddafi arrived in Baghdad with a delegation of 69 officials. Shortly before the invasion of Iraq in 2003, she met with Saddam Hussein. In 2011, she strongly protested the policies of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. President Barack Obama, calling for a mediation of the Libyan Civil War through an international organization which would exclude them. She vehemently opposed the anti-Saddam offensives of President George W Bush in Iraq and Ayesha had been consistently a supporter of Democrats in United States.

After the recently NATO bomb attack on the compound of Muammar al-Gaddafi, Ayesha sued NATO over the bombing of a building in Gaddafi’s compound that allegedly killed her brother, Saif al-Arab Muammar al-Gaddafi, and her own infant daughter among the three grandchildren of her father’s who were killed. See video here. She claims the attack was illegal, as it was a civilian building. Ms. Gaddafi’s lawyers filed the petitions in Brussels and Paris in June 2011.

However, on 27 July it was reported that Belgian prosecutors declined to investigate the war crimes complaint filed by al-Gaddafi against NATO [whose headquarters are in Belgium], saying that their country’s universal competence law [requiring a connection between the complaint and Belgium] does not apply in the case. Ayesha Gaddafi’s husband, Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi, whom she married in 2006, was also killed by anti-Gaddafi rebels on 26th July 2011. See Ayesha Gaddafi’s wedding video here, and here. When Muammar al-Gaddafi’s compound in Libya was occupied by the rebels, Ayesha Gaddafi’s house also became a target of attack and looting. Personal belongings and valuable of Ms. Ayesha were looted by the rebels. Some of the rebels drank and danced at the living room in the house and few of them went to her personal bedroom and had sex with a few Nigerian women they brought from Benghazi. While having sex with the Nigerian hookers, the rebels were making abusive words on Ayesha Gaddafi. At least 90 Nigerian girls were captured from several whore houses in Benghazi by the rebels, who are later forced to give sexual comfort to members of the anti-Gaddafi forces in Libya. Watch videos of rebels storming into compound of Muammar al-Gaddafi and his daughter Ayesha Gaddafi here and here. See the video of her personal bathroom inside her luxurious house here. Here is another video showing the house of Ayesha Gaddafi.

Here is the video of Ayesha Gaddafi giving lecture to the people asking them to support her father. And after the rebels starting getting stronger, when media continued to claim that Ayesha has already left Libya for another country, she gave a video statement saying she did not flee Libya.

But, now the question is, where is Ayesha Gaddafi? Some unconfirmed reports say, she has been brutally raped and murdered inside the compound by some of the rebel members in Libya and after murdering, her dead body was set on fire. No one can ever confirm this news. If she is alive, then the million dollar question remains unanswered – will this iron woman of the Arab world will retain the dignity and honor of her father? Or she will face the gallows being accused of “crime against humanity”?

Finally, I would like to ask a straight question to those big “bosses” sitting at NATO, United Nations and the UNSC. As Ayesha Gaddafi was the United Nations goodwill ambassador up to 2011, how the Westerners suddenly labeled her as a ‘murdered’ only after revoking her position? I am sure; those big “bosses” are also feeling shy of making such huge hypocrisy with the world just for the sake of serving the purpose of United States and some oil-monger countries. If you can accuse Muammar al-Gaddafi for torturing prisoners in prison, why not also accuse American presidents for notoriety at Guantanamo Bay Detention Centers? Or, whatever United States does is legal and anything others do is illegal? We clearly understand why White House and the entire forces and allies of America are continuing aggression in Arab and Muslim nations. They want to capture the Muslim world and put them under the feet of the Westerners. Shall we at all allow it to finally happen?

Muammar Gaddafi’s female bodyguards claim rape

  • Women say they were used by Gaddafi and regime
  • Blackmailed into joining guard over fake charges
  • “passed on, like used objects, to one of his sons”

FIVE women who were part of Muammar Gaddafi’s elite team of female bodyguards have reportedly claimed they were raped by the deposed Libyan leader.

According to the Sunday Times of Malta, the former bodyguards told a Benghazi-based psychologist they were raped and abused by Gaddafi and his sons, before being tossed aside once the men became “bored” with them.

The details are reportedly being collected by psychologist Seham Sergewa for possible use by the International Criminal Court, which has issued a warrant for the arrest of Gaddafi and his top associates, including son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, for suspected war crimes.

One of the women reportedly said she was blackmailed into joining Gaddafi’s female bodyguard unit after the regime fabricated a story that her brother was caught smuggling drugs into Libya, and he would be imprisoned unless she agreed to join the brigade.

“A pattern emerged in the stories,” the Sunday Times of Malta says.

“The women would be first raped by the dictator and then passed on, like used objects, to one of his sons and eventually to high-ranking officials for more abuse before eventually being let go.”

The psychologist, Sergewa, has also been investigating claims of systematic rape said to have been committed by pro-Gaddafi soldiers during the conflict.

Since the early 1970s, and until recently, Gaddafi was always surrounded by his female bodyguards, known as his Amazonian guard. They wore camouflage outfits, nail polish and heavy mascara.

The cadre of 30 women pledged oaths of loyalty to him, including a vow of virginity, according to reports.

The women shadowed, and at times took bullets for, Gaddafi; in 1998, one died and two were injured when the Libyan dictator was attacked.

In June, Gaddafi loyalists revealed they were training female soldiers as part of their plan to combat the Libyan rebels.

The Guardian newspaper reported that 500 women of all ages had graduated from a program designed to teach pro-Gaddafi females how to use weapons.

“Libyan women are now joining the armed forces against NATO. We are training them. Their main role is defending homes. We have no plan to send them to the front line. They are not trained for that, and our army is very effective,” Moussa Ibrahim, a government spokesman, told The Guardian.

“We are going to make sure that every mother, the symbol of love and creation, is a bomb, a killing machine,” Moussa said.
