Moussa Ibrahim (born 7 December 1974) is a Libyan political figure who rose to international attention in 2011 as Muammar Gaddafi's Information Minister and official spokesman, serving in this role until the government was toppled in 2011.

Moussa Ibrahim held frequent press conferences in the course of the rebel insugency, denouncing rebels and the NATO-led military intervention, often in defiant and impassioned tones. His status and whereabouts remained unknown following the overthrow of the Gaddafi government, although there were several claims and subsequent refutations of his capture.[1]

Eventually, in late 2014, it was discovered he was in Egypt before he was deported and fled to Serbia.[2]

Video link to London

In January 2015 Moussa Ibrahim spoke publicly in English for the first time via video link to a Committee Room in Parliament in London in a speech titled "Libya: NATO's untold story":

"This is a political and moral appeal to each and every one of you. I address your hearts and minds."

Dr Ibrahim declared he also spoke on behalf of the Libyan Popular National Movement, which was founded in early 2012 as the political body of the majority of Libyans who support the Jamahiriya:

"We are Green Libyans, we support Brother Leader Muammar Gaddafi, and we make a peaceful initiative to reclaim our country from Al Qaeda and NATO's gangs."

The illegal war on Libya was a full blown media war, Dr Ibrahim stressed. Throughout the conflict, the racist lie of Black African mercenaries was used to demonise the Jamahiriya:

"But not a single African soldier was captured during eight months of war. Meanwhile NATO's rebel terrorists were eager to pose with darker skinned Libyans whom they forced to eat the green flag of the Libyan Jamahiriya.

Other media lies included the "10,000 peaceful protesters who were killed by Gaddafi's forces", which was the basis of UNSC Resolution 1970 and 1973 and of US President Obama's hypocritical statement that "if we had waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world."

However, Dr Ibrahim emphasised:

"Even (former chairman of the NATO-rebels' Transitional National Council) Mustafa Abdul Jalil admitted that only eight protesters were killed before the NATO intervention, not 10,000."[3]

RT interview

"Our mistake - Libya had no International alliance"

On 5 October 2019, Moussa Ibrahim gave his first international media interview since 2011 with Russia Today's Afshin Rattansi in Berlin:

"In 2011 my country was under attack by the global centre of imperialist capitalism, aiming to stop the Libyan project for African unity. Our mistake was Libya had no International alliance."[4]

Comments

Sheila Coombes on Facebook:

"Lies of Libyan intervention destroyed a wealthy nation at peace. So many of those lies have been exposed, including claims by Susan Rice at the UN that thousands of Libyan women were mass raped by Libyan soldiers issued with Viagra by Gaddafi - not one has been reported to medics, not one name or one case of such an incident has been recorded yet Ms. Rice went on to lie about the situation in Syria too.
"Gaddafi's former Press Secretary Moussa Ibrahim, in hiding for many years, can now speak openly in public and is interviewed here by Afshin Rattansi."[5]

RedBryn on Youtube:

"It's inspiring to see how brother Moussa has managed to maintain such calm, balance, and dignity in the wake of such destruction brought to his country by NATO and their Salafist proxies. His assessment of the situation is dialectically sound and concise. Respect to him, and long live the memory of Muammar Gaddafi: salute!"[6]

Chris Williamson on Twitter:

"Interesting interview with Moussa Ibrahim on @Underground_RT about the situation in Libya."[7]
