Libyan Ambassador:

Khaddafi Hired People To Kill Me
 
   The New York-based Libyan deputy ambassador to the United Nations, who recently defected from Moammar Khaddafi’s government, claims he has information Khaddafi hired assassins to kill him.
 
   “We have even information that he has already hired some people to kill us,” stated Ibrahim O.A. Dabbashi, deputy UN ambassador for the so-called transitional Libyan government.
 
   Dabbashi was referring to himself and to Libyan Ambassador Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgham, who works with him out of the Libyan mission in New York.
 
   Dabbashi made the charges in an interview on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” this reporter’s radio program on New York’s WABC Radio.
 
   “I am, and Ambassador Shalgham, both of us, are almost on a daily basis criticized on the regime’s TV with all kinds of threats,” Dabbashi said.
 
   “But really we don’t pay any much attention to these kinds of threats,” he said.
 
   Asked if Khaddafi has terrorist cells or capabilities in New York, the deputy ambassador replied, “Well, you know, usually it is not difficult for a criminal to kill someone.”
 
   Dabashi continued: “Certainly he can buy people to do the job. He has a lot of money outside.”
 
   Dabashi said he has known Khaddafi for years. He called the Libyan leader a “madman” who could use chemical weapons on his own people.
 

   “I think he may take desperate action inside Libya,” Dabashi said. “Let’s say if he has chemical arms, he may use it against the Libyan people. This is a madman. He is enjoying killing the people. I am saying that because I know the guy.”

 

Hamas Launches Rockets While It Still Can

 

   A surprising factor in the decision by Hamas in recent days to escalate its rocket attacks against Israel is the declining technical capabilities of some of its stored projectiles, according to sources close to the Islamist terror group.
 
   The sources said Hamas possesses a significant number of short- and medium-range rockets that have been in storage for a long period of time. The rockets are getting closer to losing their explosive and operational capabilities, the sources said.
 
   “Some missiles and rockets need to be shot now so they will not lose their technical capability,” said one of the sources.
 

   The sources said the rockets’ pending expiration was not a main factor in the recent escalation of attacks against Israeli civilians, but it did impact Hamas’s decision to fire more than 160 rockets in the last 2 weeks.
