Aref Nayed Says Arab-Egyptian Response is Firm Against Neo-Ottoman Colonisers – Al Marsad

Dr. Aref Ali Nayed, head of the Ihya Libya (Reviving Libya) movement, said in statements to Al-Youm7 that the Arab-Egyptian response to the delusional Ottoman sultan who pointed at the map of Libya with arrogance, audacity, and provocation has been firm and momentous.

(Libya, 20 June 2020) – In statements to Al-Youm7 today, Dr Aref Ali Nayed confirmed that the Arab-Egyptian response is resounding to the neo-Ottoman soldiers who are currently in Tripoli, to their new Janissary terrorist mercenaries, to their deputy tax collectors (Miri), and to their brokers who rushed to Tripoli to make their brethren stamp their fake contracts to take away Libya’s future fortunes—stealing their past and present fortunes.

He pointed out that President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s messages are heartfelt, sincere, and clear. “President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi spoke out and the honorable Libyan tribes spoke out welcoming his full and comprehensive speech. Statements and positions of support will surely follow from all over Libya,” he said.

“Let all Libyans be humble to God and the homeland, stick to the current lines under an immediate ceasefire, and sit together as reconciled and united brothers to remove all foreign powers from Libya, without exception. Let them dismantle all militias in favor of one army and one police and prepare for direct presidential and parliamentary elections to renew legitimacy and regain Libyan sovereignty for the dignified Libyan people,” added Nayed.

Nayed pointed out that today in Sidi Barrani, the illusions of those who have mistaken forbearance for weakness, patience for hesitation, and pursuit-of-peace for defeat, have all fallen apart. “Long live Libya, long live Egypt, and long live the Arab nation in solidarity and unity before the insatiable greed of the neo-Ottomans and other colonizers,” stated Nayed.

He pointed out that Libya is a founding member of the League of Arab States (LAS) and an inherent participant in the Arab Joint Defense System, and thus it is not surprising for its brothers to hurry to its rescue from a Turkish invasion, and a Turkish-Iranian alliance.

“It is high time for Libya to be represented in the LAS and all countries by representatives of the Libyan Parliament, the only electoral legitimacy in Libya, and the government endorsed by it of Abdullah al-Thini.”

It is noteworthy that President El-Sisi stressed Egypt’s full readiness to provide support to the Libyan people, adding: “In Egypt, we have great respect and appreciation for Libya and its people. We have not interfered in your affairs and have always been ready to provide support for the sake of Libya’s stability. We have no interest other than your security and stability. Crossing Sirte and al-Jufra is a red line and only the people of Libya will defend it. We are ready to help and support this.”

President El-Sisi added, during his inspection of the western military region, “Libya is a great country and its people are honorable and brave warriors. We assert that the forces that have reached the current lines, whether from the eastern or western region, are all Libyans. We are talking to the Libyan people not to one side against another and assert that crossing Sirte and al-Jufra is a red line.” warned el-Sisi.
