Another Great Sign of Islamic “Democracy”: Former Libyan PM “Drowned” to Death in Austria’s Danube

By Debbie Schlussel

When the Mossad isn’t doing the assassinations, nobody cares. Because, per usual, when Jews aren’t the perpetrators–but Muslims are–the life isn’t worth the outrage and lack of political football against Israel.

And so it goes with Shokri Ghanem, Libya’s former Prime Minister and Oil Minister.  Don’t believe the hype that he committed suicide. He was definitely assassinated.  The question is by whom?  The man, for a long time part of the Qaddafi government and a confidant of Qaddafi son, Seif Al-Islam Qaddafi, later backed the Libyan rebels–you know, the savage “democrats” we helped bring to power not long after engineering a no-nukes treaty with Qaddafi, which he kept (and then we betrayed him).  Either way–whether Ghanem was murdered by the Libyan rebel “democrats” as I believe and as it seems he was, or by the Qaddafi loyalists, who seem to have taken their marbles and gone home–the fact that the man was apparently murdered in Austria should tell you a lot about the long arm of Islam and Islamic assassins.  That arm stretches, as we know, into U.S. borders.

Did Libyan Rebels Murder Shokri Ghanem, Former Qaddafi Ally, in Austria’s Danube?

Austrian police said Libya’s former oil chief and prime minister, whose body was found in the River Danube in Vienna on Sunday, had drowned, but it was unclear whether he killed himself or was the victim of an accident or foul play. . . .

Mr Ghanem defected from the Gaddafi regime during the Nato-backed armed uprising in May 2011, eventually finding his way to Europe. Libya’s interim authorities had issued a warrant for his arrest. . . .

Libyan investigators say Mr Ghanem played a key role in skimming the country’s oil profits to benefit the Gaddafi family, acting as a dealmaker between Tripoli and companies in Europe and the Arabian Peninsula. . . .

He was last seen alive by his family on Saturday night. Passers-by spotted his body floating 20 meters from the shore on Sunday morning, not far from his home, according to Austrian media.

I don’t believe for a second that this guy went on a Saturday Night swim alone in the Danube. Who does that? Certainly and especially not a guy in his position.

While there is some speculation that someone with whom he skimmed oil profits for the Qaddafis was trying to silence him, I doubt it. I think it’s more likely that it was the rebels getting revenge. The first ones they kill are the turncoat useful idiots.

And if he lived here, we’d find him drowned somewhere in the Detroit River.

Again, since this isn’t a Mossad hit, no one cares or will condemn it. And there will be no incompetent Inspector Clouseau-esque police chiefs getting accolades from the Wall Street Journal for their non-existent “investigations.”

The bloodbaths of newly-liberated, “democratic,” “Springtime” Arabia continue without outrage. Because, hey, if the Jews didn’t do it, it doesn’t count. Right?

On the other hand, if they keep killing each other, I’m happy to let allah sort it out. Still, we should have supported both Mubarak and Qaddafi. That we supported the rebels was absolutely unconscionable and helped further destabilize the Middle East and Muslim world in favor of our enemies.

“He was definitely assassinated.”
That would imply that you have a shred of evidence.
The word you want is “possibly”.
Try it out.

    Grow up. The suicide is unbelieveable, and the man is dead. 99% probable assasinated.

    Occam's Tool on April 30, 2012 at 4:27 pm

      Do you know what ‘definitely’ means?
      And 99%? The Austrian police (those well-known Islamophiles) have found no evidence of foul play, pending toxicology reports. And he had a heart condition, according to his own family.
      I’m quite grown up – I think it’s possibly an assassination. Possibly.

      London Spy on April 30, 2012 at 4:31 pm

        The Austrian police are Islamophiles. Sorry I misspelled assassination, but those police ARE Islamophiles. You really don’t know much, do you?

        Occam's Tool on April 30, 2012 at 11:27 pm

          OT, the daft London Spy has his Contrarianism going on. He enjoys working harder to believe, well, the opposite of Occam’s Razor!

          I’m always happy to be informed and educated. I’m not aware of Islamophilia among the Austrian police. Please provide links, facts, whatever, and I will read them.

        “Pending toxicology reports?” One, pending tox reports means no data. (I’m an MD, and suicide eval is part of my specialty).

        Two, I could poison you in a few untraceable ways if I put my mind to it. I don’t normally, but i have all the data I need.

    The Austrians have been appeasers for years just like the French if there is no problem for Austria there is no problem. Should let either GSG9 or KSK investigate those boys are pros.

“the Libyan rebels–you know, the savage “democrats” we helped bring to power not long after engineering a no-nukes treaty with Qaddafi, which he kept (and then we betrayed him).”

Lesson written in blood: Give up your nuclear/WMD leverage, and cut a deal with the U.S or the E.U.; your family will be murdered and you will be violated and beaten to death in public.

It would appear that Kim Jong un, Bashar al-Assad and others have learned their lesson well. By actively throwing a “bastard” like Qaddafi to the mob we have insured a catastrophe.
Fundamental rule of diplomacy: you keep your word even (especially) with “bastards.”

DS, I to think someone killed Mr. Ghanem, I don’t think he just decided to take a swim in the Danube River in Austria and commit suicide from there, there probably was a “hit-piece” on him as you mentioned in this article and none of us can’t prove it right now because we none of us don’t have any facts to exactly back up who exactly killed Shokri Ghanem.

And yes we should’ve stayed out of Libya a year ago and let them sort out their issues over there. But Obama along with some Republicans and some conservative commentators where all “gung-ho” and said that we should overthrow Ghaddafi and let the rebels take over Libya and bring democracy. Well now the so-called democracy in Libya are the Muslim Brotherhood who’s taking over the country and is going to impose islamic-dogmatic legislative policies on the folks in that country like what’s happening in Egypt right now!

Well, at least he wasn’t beheaded.

Little Al on April 30, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Mr. Shokri Ghanem probably listened to this and got carried away: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CTYymbbEL4

I think I read a British paper recently that said that Qaddafi loyalists took over Timbuktu. Lots of strange things going on in Africa from the aftermath of The Arab Spring.

If he drowned in Detroit, it would prolly have been The Smiley Face Killer(s) or a Mooooslim sect of the (maybe) phenomena.

Of course I do not believe he drowned on his own.

A BC student recently drowned here in Boston. Just like (for the lack of a better name) the Smiley Face Killer(s) M.O.

It’s amazing how many college men drown in abundance in states like Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan. We have our share in Mass. No one cares ‘cuz they’re men.

And unlike if done like the Mossad, no one seems to care that these men seem to be drowning at a super-high ratio. Most are written off as accidents or death by misadventure. I’m not so sure.

Swimming in Austria’s Danube this time of the year is a rather chilly exercise… Especially during the night (when temperatures drop)… And, while there are those “arctic plungers” types who seem to like that sort of thing I very much doubt that Shokri Ghanem is among them…

After all, unlike the Fins (for example) the Libyans do not have a tradition of going pretty much immediately from the steaming hot sauna into the freezing cold water…

IOW, my bet is on this having been a (not very smart) assassination…

Regarding the assasination of Qadaffi’s PM Ghanem in the Austrian Danube. Is it no surprise that Assad will not step down. As I said in a previous comment he is the canary in the coal mine protecting his minority Shia Allewites, and adjunctively Syrian Christians, Armenians who support his regime from certain genocide and as demonstrated by the murder of Ghanem where would he go?
This is not to lionize this monster who mskes no differentiation between civilian and military targets whatsover by emulating his father Hassad’s own massacre of an entire town where the muslim brotherhood was strong.
If Israel retaliated against daily rocket attacks from Gaza with the same ruthless force that Assad uses with repeated impunity Gaza would be wiped off the map by now.
Ironically, The only haven Assad would find safety is guess where. Yep, Israel.
Israel has learned the hard way that good fences make good neighbors. Only Jew haters and wacko’s can condemn Israel for taking protective measures that are inconvenient to a hostile population of snipers, suicide bombers and stone throwers who were bottle fed on Jew hatred. These same “Palistinians” would be cannon fodder in Syria today.
As I mentioned previously,if all the Jews in Israel were “raptured” off the planet tomorrow what would Hamas and Hezbollah do? Slaughter one another of course. Beam us up Scotty!

    Whoops. That was Haffez not Hassad eh?

    Ron Wolf aka "Columbo" on May 1, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Dear Debbie,

Ron Wolf is right. The alawites are protecting their turf from the biggest gangsters on Earth; “Our allies the Saudis” They precipitated the demise of Kaddhafi and the Demise of Saddam Hussein. I know the vast majorit of Americans will disagree with me but I must be honest with them and tell them getting rid of Saddam was a big mistake. The Saudis bambouzled Bush ito the costly war and then the Iranians came with their threat against the Saudis and aalienating the USA. It turned out that Saddam was a blessing in disguise and we did not realize that at the time. I am not a fan of Saddam but I must be honest with my co-citizens and tell them that getting rid of him was a mistake.

Thanks obummer.

Strange Debbie that no attention to the Jerusalem Post
Summit where former Mossad, Shin Bet, and assorted
self-haters condemn the Israeli Government for
fomenting a war with Iran.

C: You should ask Carolyn Glick about why she appeared on stage with those self-haters, just like she was a negotiator in the murderous Oslo accords. As for me, I don’t pay attention to their conferences. DS
