Text size Aa Aa

The son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has said he and his father will never surrender.
Saif-al-Islam, the most prominent of Gaddafi’s children, insisted Libya would crush the rebellion and warned the West not to take sides.
“The French or the Europeans, they should talk to the Libyan people. Two days ago you have seen thousands of people marching in the squares and the streets. You saw them early in the morning. This is the real picture of Libya. Those are the real Libyans. If you want to support the militia, do it. But I tell you from now. You going to lose, we will win. And we are not afraid of the American fleet, NATO, France, Europeans. This is our country, we live here, we die here. We will never ever surrender to those terrorists.’‘
Saif al-Islam went on to say: ‘‘The Libyan people, they will never ever welcome NATO, we will never ever welcome the Americans here. Libya is not a piece of cake. We are not a Mickey Mouse.’‘
