Help stop the massacres in Libya

This is from the superb UN Watch, which fights hypocrisy and prejudice at the United Nations. Please support their cause by clicking on the link at the bottom.

The Middle East is aflame, yet nowhere is human life being trampled with more brutality, more victims, and more secrecy than in Libya. In the past few days, hundreds of peaceful protesters and innocent bystanders were deliberately shot and killed by government snipers and foreign mercenaries.

Artillery and helicopter gunships were used against crowds. Thugs armed with hammers and swords attacked families in their homes. Women and children in the city of Benghazi were seen jumping off a bridge to escape.

Unlike the situations in Egypt and Bahrain, in Libya there is no TV coverage, no reporters, no Internet, and limited telephone connections. The regime is trying to hide its crimes from the world, to prevent international pressure.

The silence of the world powers is deafening. We cannot allow this massacre to continue. Mohamed Eljahmi and other Libyan human rights defenders are pleading for our help.

Stand up for innocent victims: Urge the U.S., the European Union, and the U.N. not to turn a blind eye to this bloodbath.

Good news is that BP and Shell have both taken action to end their cooperation with the Ghadaffi regime.

Only the dregs of the dregs of the worst scum visiting this blog, can mark down a plea to stop the Libyan megalomaniac mass-murderer massacring hundreds of innocent people.

Well I would have expected more of a reaction, especially from those who are usually so quick to advocate for Arabs (but apparently only against Jews, not their dictators). Why am I surprised?

Well more news on this. Ghaddafi is now using Libyan Air Force jets to fire on civilians in Tripoli.

According to Israel Matzav:

..the crews of those Libyan jets and helicopters (two each) that landed in Malta around 5:30 local time on Monday have asked for asylum. The pilots asked for asylum because they did not want to shoot at their own people anymore. There was a French passenger on one of the jets according to someone in Malta. There are seven people on the aircraft in all. Their escape was not planned and they did not have permission to land.
