The Islamist Plot: The Untold Story of the Libyan Rebellion
National Review / John Rosenthal


In conjunction with American, French, and other NATO forces, British forces thus intervened in Libya in support of a rebellion whose methods the British courts had found to constitute terrorism.Nowadays, it is common for Western commentators to bemoan the fact that the “Arab Spring” has been followed by an “Islamist Winter.” But, when viewed in conjunction with all the other evidence of the Islamist roots of the Libyan rebellion, the existence of the LIFG plan leaves little room for doubt: Whatever may have transpired in the rest of the Arab world, the uprising in Libya was the realization not of democratic aspirations, but of the longstanding ambitions of Islamic extremists. It was an “Islamist Spring” that paved the way for today’s “Islamist Winter.”
