Libyan human rights activist Salwa Bugaighis has been shot dead by assailants at her home in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on June 25, AFP reported. “Unknown hooded men wearing military uniforms attacked Mrs Bugaighis in her home and opened fire on her,” a security official said. She was taken to hospital in critical condition, where she died shortly afterwards. Her husband, who was in the family home at the time of the attack, has since been reported as missing. Bugaighis, a lawyer, played an active part in Libya’s 2011 revolution. She was a member of the National Transitional Council, the rebellion’s political wing, and vice president of a preparatory committee for national dialogue.
So far the mainstream media perception of who Salwa Bugaighis really was.
All dressed up as a Western woman, she and her older sister Iman became one of the Libyan on-the-ground puppets to the West that were lying to the media about what was really happening in the country in early 2011. She was among the ones calling for a no-fly zone that the U.S. and NATO countries interpreted as a license to indiscriminately bomb Libya for more than seven months, causing hundreds of thousands of casualties. Apparently, someone who asks the Western imperialist countries to invade or bomb their own soil, is considered to be a human rights activist.
The father of Salwa Bugaighis reportedly was a politician during the reign of pro-Western king Idris Senussi, and had to resign after Gaddafi and his Free Officer’s Movement overthrew the monarchy in 1969. It is not excluded that the Bugaighis family for this reason kept holding a grudge against the Jamahiriya which no longer had political figures other than the Libyan people themselves.
In 2012 it once again became crystal clear whose agenda Mrs Bugaighis was serving, when she was flown to the United States to receive an award from Hillary “We came, we saw, he died” Clintons NGO Vital Voices Global Partnership.
Nowadays Salwa Bugaighis is widely praised for “giving her life for a free Libya”. The sad truth however is that she betrayed her country by collaborating with the West and by being part of those who helped bringing hell upon Libya.
Mrs Bugaighis’ niece, who goes by the significant Twitter name “life sucks.”, quite aptly summarized the problem in the mindset of those who still believe “February 17” was a sincere revolution, when she reacted to her aunt’s death by tweeting:
