Jatuhkan Pemimpin UMNO Baru Kita Tahu Jumlah Harta Mereka

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 09:33 AM PST

Rakyat perlu menjatuhkan pemimpin Umno untuk membolehkan rakyat mengetahui harta kekayaan mereka, gesa seorang pemimpin PAS di Kerdau malam tadi.

"(Tun) Dr Mahathir Mohamad, (Datuk Seri) Najib Tun Razak dan (Tan Sri) Muhyiddin Yassin, kita kena jatuhkan baru kita tahu jumlah harta mereka," kata Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam, Khalid Samad.

Pemimpin PAS bersuara lantang itu berkata demikian dalam ceramahnya membantu calon PAS, Hasanuddin Salim di Kerdau malam tadi.

Beliau menambah, mereka (pemimpin Umno) takut apa yang berlaku kepada Presiden Tunisia Zine El Abidine Ben Ali dan Presiden Mesir Hosni Mubarak kerana setelah jatuh, rakyat baru tahu harta kekayaan mereka.

Ceramah Khalid di Desa Murni, Kerdau diadakan bersebelahan dengan ceramah Barisan Nasisonal (BN) yang menurut beberapa ahli

PAS, ceramah BN itu tidak lain tidak bukan sekadar mahu menganggu ceramah PAS.

Hanya beberapa kerat sahaja yang berada di kawasan ceramah BN walaupun disediakan sate, mi dan nasi briyani manakala ceramah

Khalid yang juga Ahli Jawatankuasa PAS Pusat dihadiri sekitar 400 hingga 500 orang.

Umno ganggu ceramah PAS

"Umno cuma nak ganggu ceramah PAS kerana mereka takut kepada kita di Kerdau," kata Khalid secara berseloroh.

Khalid juga menjelaskan betapa pentingnya PAS menang di Kerdau dalam pilihan raya kecil kali ini.

"Kita perlu menang di sini untuk membolehkan kita menjawab tohmahan-tohmahan yang dikeluarkan kepada Pakatan Rakyat.

"Kerajaan (Pakatan Rakyat) yang hendak kita buat dengan PKR dan DAP adalah kerajaan anti rasuah, bukan seperti Umno yang menipu rakyat," katanya.

Dalam ceramah tersebut, Khalid menyelar sikap isteri Perdana Menteri, Rosmah Mansor yang berbelanja besar dan membeli pakaian- pakaian mahal di luar negeri.

Beliau mengaitkan Rosmah dengan Imelda Marcos (isteri Presiden Filipina, Ferdinand Marcos) dan Leila Ben Ali (isteri Presiden Tunisia), yang membeli pakaian-pakaian mahal di Perancis dan Itali dengan menggunakan wang rakyat.

Pilihan raya umum Kerdau esok menyaksikan calon BN Syed Ibrahim Syed Ahmad menentang Hasanuddin dari PAS, dengan jumlah pengundi 8,999 orang.

The vehicle I am owning is a 10 years old Proton Wira. The insurance company said it is probably 13K in value. I also have 4 bicycles (1 adult, 3 for kids) and the estimated total value is RM1000.

I don't own any stocks and I keep my Income Tax record up to date and paid my taxes.

The purchase of my property has become news, but it simply reaffirmed that I lead an honest life.

Nurul Anak Papa Ku - Shahnon Ahmad

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 12:30 AM PST

1. Saya tidak tahu apa-apa mengenai kewujudan novel ini sehingga ditunjukkan oleh tuan kedai selepas ditanya mengenai novel SHIT.


2. Diterbitkan oleh Pustaka Jiwa Merdeka, cetakan pertama tahun 1999.

3. Novel ini ditulis pada ketika negara sedang heboh dengan kes penahanan DS Anwar Ibrahim atas tuduhan liwat (episod 1) pada zaman pemerintahan Tun Mahathir.

4. Rakyat yang tidak berpuas hati dengan tuduhan dan tangkapan itu telah berkumpul menyatakan bantahan. Kalau masih ingat antara laungan dan pekikan yang popular pada masa itu adalah, Reformasi! Reformasi! Reformasi!

5. Menaikkan bulu roma juga bila mengingatkan detik itu. Perkataan reformasi seolah menjadi duri yang mencucuk-cucuk daging pemerintah ketika itu setiap kali dilaungkan rakyat, penyokong DS Anwar Ibrahim. Sehingga mereka (kerajaan) menghantar apa sahaja yang mereka punya, untuk memaksa gerombolan-gerombolan manusia itu bersurai.

6. Untuk yang agak-agak lupa suasana dan jalan cerita waktu itu boleh google kembali.

7. Novel Nurul Anak Papa Ku ini lahir daripada sensitiviti seorang sasterawan terhadap perjalanan politik tanah airnya. Pak Shahnon memang terkenal dengan tulisan-tulisannya yang kontrovesi yang melibatkan tokoh-tokoh dalam lapangan politik negara. Siapa boleh lupa dengan SHIT? Satu lagi karya yang lahir pada zaman pemerintahan Tun Mahathir. Begitu juga dengan Sutan Baginda. Novelet yang mengisahkan hal orang politik yang sanggup berbuat apa sahaja untuk kepentingan politik mereka. Begitu juga dengan cerpen-cerpen beliau yang terhimpun di dalam antologi MahaMaha. Dan beberapa karya beliau yang lain.

8. Seperti yang diketahui, Pak Shahnon pernah terlibat dengan sebuah parti politik negara, PAS. Bahkan sempat menjadi ahli parlimen di Sik, kampungnya sendiri, beberapa ketika sebelum beliau diserang penyakit Myasthenia Gravis. Yang mana akibat dari penyakit ini telah melumpuhkan segala aktiviti beliau termasuklah dalam bidang sastera yang mana telah menyekat kreativiti beliau dari berkarya.

9. Ok. Sebelum tersasar jauh, novel Nurul Anak Papa Ku ini mengisahkan mengenai Nurul. Atau lebih tepat, Nurul Izzah Binti Anwar. Puteri sulung DS Anwar Ibrahim. Semasa papanya ditangkap, Nurul masih lagi bergelar seorang pelajar di salah satu universiti tempatan. Tangkapan ke atas papanya itu telah merubah diri dan peribadi seorang Nurul Izzah.

10. Peristiwa papanya ditahan dan kemudian disumbatkan ke dalam lokap telah menukarkan wajah anak gadis ini yang sangat pemalu, lemah lembut menjadi seorang yang agresif dan terkehadapan dalam memperjuangkan keadilan ke atas papanya. Peristiwa itu telah membawa Nurul berkeliling negara berjumpa setiap rakyat yang inginkan kezaliman ke atas DS Anwar Ibrahim dihentikan dan kerajaan yang ada pada ketika itu digulingkan.

11. Novel ini mendalami perasaan dan gejolak jiwa Nurul yang terpaksa mengetepikan kemanisan zaman remaja demi menuntut keadilan bersama rakyat terhadap papanya.

12. Kini, hasil dari kejadian belasan tahun yang lampau, Nurul Izzah telah menjadi ahli parlimen Lembah Pantai di bawah naungan Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) yang mana beliau telah menewaskan lawannya, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil pada pilihanraya umum 8 Mac 2008 yang lalu.

13. Novel ini turut dimuatkan sepucuk surat istimewa daripada DS Anwar Ibrahim ketika dalam tahanan yang dialamatkan kepada penulis novel SHIT yakni Pak Shahnon sendiri selepas beliau (Pak Shahnon) mengirim senaskhah novel SHIT itu kepada DS untuk dibaca di dalam penjara.

14. Sebenarnya agak sukar juga untuk membaca surat DS Anwar Ibrahim ini. Sukar itu mungkin kerana tulisannya 'sangat cantik' atau mungkin kerana tekanan yang dilalui di dalam lokap bersebelahan tandas di penjara Sg Buloh itu telah menghilangkan seni menulis tulisan ruminya. Atau mungkin sahaja memang begitu tulisan DS.

15. Novel ini boleh didapati di kedai-kedai buku terpakai. Jangan cari di MPH atau Popular, kerana memang tak akan ada. Harganya bergantung kepada tuan kedai. Mungkin kalau mood tuan kedai baik, buku ini boleh dibeli dengan harga serendah RM 2 sahaja.

*16. Selepas kes liwat episod 1 itu selesai dengan pembebasan DS Anwar Ibrahim ketika zaman Pak Lah, kini episod 2-nya dalam proses penggambaran. Kes liwat DS Anwar Ibrahim episod 2 sedang berlangsung di mahkamah yakni ketika negara di bawah pemerintah DS Najib Razak. Tetapi kali ini belum lagi terdengar pekikan-pekikan Reformasi! dan sebagainya. Mungkin belum lagi. Kita tunggu kalau-kalau ada sasterawan yang mahu berkreativiti pula dengan kes liwat episod 2 ini selepas Pak Shahnon. Barangkali boleh letak judul 'Raja Harith (anak Nurul Izzah) Cucu Papa Ku'.

Kerdau: Ahli UMNO Dari FELDA Jengka 22 & 23 Sertai PAS

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 07:00 AM PST

PAS dapat lonjakan politik di Kerdau

PAS terus mendapat lonjakan politik dengan penyertaan ahli-ahli Umno dari kawasan Felda Jengka 22 dan Jengka 23.

Dalam satu majlis bersama Persatuan Anak Peneroka Feda Kebangsaan (Anak) di Jengka 23, PAS menerima kemasukan 18 orang keahlian baru yang kebanyakannya ahli Umno yang kecewa dengan pretasi Barisan Nasional selama ini.

Dalam majlis tersebut, borang keahlian PAS mereka diserahkan kepada Pengarah Pilihanraya PAS PRK Kerdau, Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.

Sementara itu, PAS terus mendapat sokongan daripada penghuni di Jengka 22 apabila 30 ahli baru yang kebanyakannya bekas ahli Umno juga mengambil keputusan menyertai perjuangan PAS.

Dalam pada itu, Ketua Pemuda PAS Pusat, Nasruddin Hasan Tantawi dalam satu mesej di Twitter mengumumkan bahawa Anak menerima 176 penyertaan ahli baru dari Felda Jengka 23, 22, 25, 16 dan 18 semasa Majlis Pelancaran Anak di Felda Jengka 23, malam tadi.

Perkembangan terbaru ini menggambarkan harapan baik bagi PAS untuk pilihan raya kecil Kerdau kali ini.

Hari ini, dijangkakan akan berlaku lebih ramai kemasukan ahli baru di beberapa peti undi lagi.

Namun, Tuan Ibrahim, yang juga Naib Presiden PAS mengingatkan para petugas PAS untuk PRK Kerdau untuk berwaspada dengan strategi akhir yang digunakan oleh BN bagi mengugut pengundi dengan pelbagai tawaran kewangan yang telah dan akan diumumkan.


SO SILLY SULAIMAN – EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS!

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 06:48 AM PST


We can predict one notable absentee from Taib's pre-election political rally at the recently completed Borneo Convention Centre (just one of the major building contracts he awarded to his family company and put in the hands of his own sister Raziah).  The absentee will be his own son and Federal MP, Sulaiman Taib.  But Sarawak Report can perform a public service by reassuring people that the rumours that Sulaiman is dead are untrue.
In what can only be described as a stupid stunt, Sulaiman Taib has posted a picture of himself on Facebook, posing as 'Death' rests a symbolic hand on his shoulder! 

The Chief Minister's younger son, who likes to be called Rahman when in North America, appears to have been responding to the widespread rumours that have been flying around Kuching for months that he is indeed dead! Judging from the sweat shirt worn by the skeleton figure, Sarawak Report can suggest to curious constituents, concerned to know his whereabouts, that he is in Canada!
In the Facebook posting, which can be accessed by 1,591 facebook friends, Sulaiman acknowledges the waves of speculation about his state of health and possible demise, which have carried on since he dramatically dropped from public view well over a year ago. However, he airily dismisses such concerns.  In one entry dated February 15th he declares:
 "Yes, I am healthy and still alive. (Stupid people listening to and spreading rumours. Please!! Get a life!!!)"
Comunicating only by Facebook!
Get a life?
The 42 year old, who is the Federal MP for Kota Samarahan, a seat he inherited from his father the Chief Minister in 2006, clearly thinks that constituents who are wondering where he is should 'get a life'!  In his Facebook entry he says he lives in Ottawa, Canada and makes no obvious mention of his political responsibilities back in Sarawak on the other side of the globe.  Instead, the entries focus on pictures of his jet-set lifestyle and leisure activities.  There are plenty snowy scenes, but little sign of sunny Sarawak! 
Stupid people or stupid Sulaiman?
Sulaiman has been also spotted in London in recent months, including dining in Soho in September with his sisters
Rahman with Jamilah, Hanifah and Aunt Zaleha enjoying a dinner in Soho 22nd Septmeber 2010
and Aunt.  Not long after he was photographed entering the Hyde Park apartment building used by his family in advance of a family get together that included Taib last October. So Sulaiman is definitely getting around the place. However, he has made not a single appearance in the Federal Parliament Building in KL for well over a year when he resigned his position as Deputy Tourism Minister.  Neither has he been seen in Kuching, even missing his father's recent wedding.  
Nevertheless, he retains his position and continues to be paid as Kota Samarahan's MP!  In fact, all his constituency duties have long since been delegated to Idris Buang, a political secretary of his father and none of the people who elected him to help them with their problems have seen a whisker of him!  If Sulaiman was being paid to work in an office or a shop, his boss would legitimately be able to ask why if he is not at his desk.  His constituents have an equal right to ask the same thing without being told to "get a life"!
Photographs for his facebook but no news for the rest of us!
Plenty of complaints but no explanations! 
In the absence of his use of any of the normal official means of communication, Sulaiman has chosen to rely on the informal channel of his selected Facebook friends to pass his comments to the outside world.  He has been using this means to post gossipy chat and photographs, as well as to complain that speculation about him is wrong.  However, few of these friends appear to have been passing on the messages to the bemused public, hence Sarawak Report's decision to publish some of his remarks.
In particular Sulaiman has been condemning those in Kuching who have concluded he must be seriously ill to have so suddenly neglected his duties and he has used his "wall" to deliver them a number of little lectures on the subject of truthfulness!
These are some of the more recent excerpts from his recent Facebook posts.
"If the truth always prevails, then why are there so many people lying these days?"Rahman Taib
"Honesty has diminished a lot in the world. Sad, but true".Rahman Taib
 "Life is short. Be truthful, honest and kind in every way. These attributes will benefit your current and afterlife".Rahman Taib 
Time for an honest open statement from Rahman Taib and his Dad?
We therefore wonder why the son of the Chief Minister does not take a little of his own advice and present the truth of the situation publicly through the proper channels?  With all the media at his disposal he could do it with as little effort as posting such facile comments on his Facebook Wall?   So, what is the truth Sulaiman Taib?  You are by choice an elected public figure and therefore people have a right to know.
Serious politician or wealthy playboy?
If on the other hand the absentee MP has decided to opt for a private life instead, then why not resign his public office and allow a by-election to take place in his neglected constituency?  His father could call it now and it would give a useful indicator of where the wind in blowing in the run up to the much delayed state election!
Cry for help?
However, Sulaiman's clear sense of unjust treatment indicates that maybe he has found himself unable to do any of these obvious things.  At the risk of being accused of more unfounded speculation Sarawak Report concludes that Sulaiman seems clearly in a predicament that he feels is not of his own making.  Could it be that he has displeased his draconian Papa and been banished out of sight? 
As near as Rahman gets to an explanation of his absence!
In yet another posting that clearly refers to his bizarre circumstances, Sulaiman calls on the rest of us to withold our questions and our judgement until we know all the facts of the case!
"Judge only when you know ALL the facts and criticize only when you are ABSOLUTELY perfect".  Rahman Taib
Such a complaint begs the request that the person who can present these facts should therefore get on and do so! Tell us all the facts so we can make our judgement Sulaiman Taib.  It is your failure to do so that is being criticised at the moment and rightly so! 
The truth? Let's hear it!
To think that this was the man whom the Taib was so recently preparing to 'inherit' his role as Chief Minister and to think that Taib has so recently declared that he still can find no one else in BN who is capable to succeed him!  the gathering at the Borneo Convention promises to be a pretty dull and desperate event – unless, of course, Sulaiman surprises everyone and turns up after all!

PRK Merlimau: Kempen PAS Berjaya

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 06:00 AM PST

Sepanjang kempen Pilihan Raya Kecil Dun Merlimau, PAS berjaya menyampaikan mesej perjuangan PAS dan Pakatan Rakyat walaupun terdapat beberapa kekangan dan halangan.

Walaupun beberapa insiden yang tidak diingini berlaku seperti cermin kereta dipecah, poster dan risalah berunsur fitnah, tayar kereta dipancit dan gangguan ceramah oleh budak-budak upahan.

Cara kempen calon PAS mendahului calon Umno. Malah pendekatan calon PAS ditiru pula oleh Umno seperti pemberian bunga kepada wanita. Calon PAS membangkitkan masalah pengangkutan awam, maka terus pendududk Merlimau mendapat khidmat MARA Liner. Banyak rungutan yang sudah disampaikan kepada beliau sepanjang berkempen. Rupa-rupanya banyak masalah di Dun Merlimau yang masih terlindung di sebalik slogan yang indah.

Alhamdulillah pengundi di Dun Merlimau merupakan masyarakat yang terbuka dan boleh berubah walaupun di luar nampak berwajah Umno.

Peluang ini memberi kesempatan kepada PAS untuk menerangkan dasar PAS yang berteraskan Islam kepada penduduk Dun Merlimau dengan secara dekat. Mungkin selama ini mereka menganggap PAS adalah parti yang pelik di kalangan mereka.

PAS cukup bergembira sambutan pengundi Cina dan India kepada calon PAS sehingga menimbulkan keresahan kepada Umno. Orang bukan Islam sudah tidak gerun kepada PAS, walaupun berbagai tohmahan dan fitnah dilemparkan kepada PAS.

PAS menyeru supaya pengundi Dun Merlimau memilih Haji Yuhaizad Abdullah untuk menambah suara pembangkang di Dewan Undangan negeri Melaka.

Lelaki Dibuang Bawah Pelepah Sawit Lepas Ditetak

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 04:13 AM PST

Kulim: Seorang lelaki berusia 31 tahun yang cedera parah di kepala, badan dan tangan akibat ditetak sebelum dia dibuang di bawah longgokan pelepah sawit, dalam satu kejadian samun di Lunas, dekat sini, kelmarin. Gambar fail.

Berikutan kejadian itu, mangsa menahan kesakitan kira-kira dua jam berikutan kesukaran menemuinya di bawah timbunan pelepah sawit dalam kejadian jam 2.30 petang.

Difahamkan, mangsa kerugian RM700 selepas disamun sekumpulan lima lelaki sebelum dia ditetak dan disorokkan di bawah timbunan pelepah sawit.

Bagaimanapun, motosikal milik mangsa Honda EX5 tidak dilarikan sekali gus menjadi petunjuk kepada orang ramai untuk mencari mangsa.

Pengerusi Pertubuhan Prihatin Kebaktian Masyarakat Kulim (PPKM) iaitu badan bukan kerajaan di sini, Khor Eng Khim berkata, seorang saksi menemui motosikal di ladang sawit itu sebelum menghubungi pihaknya.

Katanya, sejurus menerima panggilan itu, PPKM ke tempat kejadian dan menghubungi polis sambil mencari mangsa.

Menurutnya, seorang ahli PPKM ternampak tompokan darah sebelum mereka bersama polis meneruskan operasi mencari dan menemui pakaian mangsa di lokasi kejadian.

"Ketika mencari mangsa di tempat tompokan darah dan baju itu, kami terdengar suara orang meminta tolong," katanya.

"Suara itu dikenal pasti dari bawah longgokan pelepah sawit berkenaan dan ketika ditemui mangsa berlumuran darah sebelum dibawa ke Hospital Kulim untuk mendapat rawatan lanjut," katanya.

Sementara itu, Ketua Polis Daerah Kulim, Superintendan Ghuzlan Saleh ketika dihubungi mengesahkan kejadian dan berkata, polis menjejaki lima lelaki yang disyaki terbabit dalam kejadian itu. -hm


Guru-guru Lain Beri Sokongan Moral Kepada Guru Cabul Yang Terlampau Ini?

Posted: 05 Mar 2011 05:00 AM PST

Ketua guru disiplin di sebuah sekolah menengah di Pandan Indah, Ampang, dihadapkan ke Mahkamah Majistret, di sini, semalam atas 11 pertuduhan mencabul 11 pelajar perempuan berusia 15 dan 16 tahun, bulan lalu.

Ismazi@Megat Ismazi Ismail, 48, bagaimanapun mengaku tidak bersalah terhadap tuduhan yang dibacakan di hadapan Majistret Azaraorni Abd Rahman. Mengikut pertuduhan, Ismazi didakwa mencabul kehormatan dengan meletakkan tangannya di atas dada semua pelajar itu di dalam bilik guru disiplin antara jam 7.30 pagi hingga 8.30 pagi, 25 Februari lalu.

Dia didakwa mengikut Seksyen 354 Kanun Keseksaan (Akta 574) yang membawa hukuman penjara maksimum 10 tahun atau denda atau sebat atau mana-mana dua hukuman berkenaan jika disabit kesalahan.

Ketika pertuduhan dibacakan, isteri tertuduh menekup muka sambil ditenangkan seorang rakan perempuannya.

Terdahulu, Timbalan Pendakwa Raya, Jaizah Jaafar Sidek menawarkan jaminan RM1,500 dengan seorang penjamin dikenakan terhadap tertuduh bagi setiap pertuduhan dengan mengambil kira keseriusan kes.

Bagaimanapun, peguam Amir Asree Meor Nordin yang mewakili tertuduh memohon wang jaminan itu dikurangkan kepada RM800 untuk setiap pertuduhan kerana jumlah yang ditawarkan pendakwaan adalah tinggi memandangkan anak guamnya penanggung tunggal keluarga dan perlu menyara empat anak yang masih bersekolah kerana isterinya tidak bekerja.

"Tambahan pula, sejak dia ditangkap pada 25 Februari lalu, berita mengenainya tersebar sehingga menyebabkan reputasi dan maruahnya sebagai penjawat awam tercalar kerana tertuduh berkhidmat sebagai guru selama 23 tahun.

"Rakan tertuduh yang rata-ratanya guru di sekolah sama turut hadir sebagai tanda sokongan moral terhadap tertuduh," katanya.

Azaraorni membenarkan tertuduh diikat jamin RM11,000 bagi semua pertuduhan dan menetapkan 25 Mac ini untuk sebutan semula kes. Isteri tertuduh membayar wang jaminan itu. Harian Metro pada 28 Februari lalu melaporkan gara-gara mahu menjadi 'doktor', seorang guru disiplin sebuah sekolah menengah diberkas polis selepas didakwa mencabul 11 pelajar perempuan. Difahamkan, guru lelaki itu mahu melakukan pemeriksaan mengenai tahap kesihatan semua pelajar terbabit terlebih dahulu sebelum merotan mereka kerana gagal hadir perhimpunan sekolah. Sumber berkata, dia mendakwa bimbang tahap kesihatan pelajar berkenaan akan menyebabkan mereka pengsan atau mengalami masalah jika dirotan membuta tuli.

Ulasan GB

Yang anehnya, kisah guru cabul ini mendapat sokongan moral dari guru-guru lain. Agaknya guru-guru itu semua sekepala dengan si pencabiul yang seorang itu, suka meraba murid-murid? Dan suka anak-anak mereka kena raba?

Eight killed in Libyan fresh clashes

Fresh clashes between anti-government protesters and forces loyal to Libyan ruler Moammar Gaddafi have left at least eight people dead and 21 injured.

The clashes took place on Saturday in the oil town of Ras Lanuf, Dr. Ahmad Burtima said.

"We have eight dead people after the fighting in Ras Lanuf and 21 injured. Two or three of them were moved to Benghazi hospital in a critical situation," Dr. Burtima told AFP at a hospital in the town of Ajdabiya.

On Friday, Tripoli residents demanding Gaddafi's downfall held rallies after the Friday prayers in the capital, where pro-Gaddafi forces used teargas to disperse them.

Meanwhile, the regime's troops kept a heavy military presence on main roads around the capital, where pro-Gaddafi forces have been searching cars at numerous checkpoints.

In the Libyan city of Benghazi, which is under the protesters' control, a massive rally was also held after the Friday prayers.

Thousands of people have been killed in the crackdown on protests by the Libyan regime in the past two weeks.

Libya's revolutionary forces have vowed to continue with their rallies until achieving victory.

Libya was formed in 1934 with Italy's colonization of Tripolitania, and Cyrenaica, the two provinces that the European country had won following a war with the Ottoman Empire.

Libya declared its independency from Italy in 1951, when King Idris formed a monarchy in the North African country.

Gaddafi, who led a military coup against King Idris, came to power and established "the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya" in 1969.
