First, I want to thank Dr. Igneiwa for his dedication and devotion to Libya by providing this web site to be a forum for all Libyans to express their opinions freely. Second, thanks are due to sister Haila for her thoughtful letters. However, I would ask her not to waste her talent on the likes of Abu Musab, our responses to their diatribe only help elevate them. They are not worthy of our time or energy. Our thoughts should be directed toward constructive debate as to how we can help end the oppression of our people in and outside of Libya.
I suggest that Libyans living outside Libya, irrespective of their whereabouts, create and maintain open channels with government officials (British, American, German, etc.) and civic organizations to keep them informed of the crimes committed against our people, and how these organizations could help bring an end to what is taking place in Libya.
Libyan Americans should initiate and maintain close ties with their state and federal representatives, to educate them about conditions in Libya, and to convince them that removal of Gaddafi from power will contribute to regional/global stability and prosperity. The United States, being the only superpower, has a moral obligation to isolate and discredit regimes such as Gaddafi's, and to force them into adaptation or complete change. Libyan Americans should use their presence in the United States to bring about change in Libya, it takes hard, consistent effort by all of us, but it can be done. If we are efficiently organized, we can create favorable American policies toward Libya. It has been done by many other nationals, and we can do the same.
