Libya is located in northern Africa, next to Egypt. It has a rich and complex history dating back thousands of years.

Quick history

The region has been inhabited by many groups of people including the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Vandals, and Byzantines. In the 7th century, Arab Muslims conquered Libya.

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Libya was under Ottoman rule and, after its collapse, Italy colonised it in 1911. Libyan nationalists didn’t like the Italians.

Libya was a battleground for the Allies and Axis powers during WW2.


Libya gained independence in 1951 as the Kingdom Of Libya, with King Idris as the head of state. However, in 1969, a military coup led by Muammar Gaddafi overthrew King Idris, establishing a somewhat socialist government and renaming the country the Libyan Arab Republic.

Gaddafi ruled Libya for more than four decades, from 1969 until his (Western-backed) assassination in 2011.

He was a threat to the United States—and the West in general—because he couldn’t be controlled by them.

Which meant that Libya needed America to bring them some democracy!

Gaddafi refused to do the bidding of the Rothschild-centered global banking cartel.
