Jacob Rothschild's villa on Corfu. Britain's Business Secretary Lord Mandelson reportedly stayed on Deripaska's yacht because there was no place for him at the Rothschild mansion.
Why has Muammar Gaddafi, the mercurial dictator of Libya, invested in Zionist-run companies with the likes of Nat Rothschild, Oleg Deripaska, and Marc Rich? Is Gaddafi truly the pro-Arab strongman he pretends to be - or is his image all just a facade?
Gaddafi business partner Oleg Deripaska
If we follow the money we find that Gaddafi, said to be "Libya's last Jew", is a close business partner with the biggest Jewish/Israeli oligarchs of Russia and Europe. These odd connections may explain Vladimir Putin's criticism of the allied military intervention against the Madman of Tripoli, calling it a "crusade" to defend the people of Libya from Gaddafi's guns. Putin is a close friend of Oleg Deripaska, owner of RusAl, the metal giant in which Gaddafi is invested. Why would an Arab leader, who claims to be an anti-Zionist, invest billions of dollars in Zionist-owned companies?

GADDAFI'S BILLIONS IN SWEDISH ALUMINUM
It has now been revealed that Muammar Gaddafi of Libya has at least 1 billion Euros invested in Sweden, some of it in a Russian-owned aluminum company named Kubal, which is owned by Oleg Deripaska, one of Russia's wealthiest oligarchs. Swedish public radio (SR) reported on March 22 that Kubal of Sundsvall is one of the Swedish companies that Gaddafi's Libyan Investment Authority is invested in.
Svenska Dagbladet reported on March 21 that Gaddafi owns 1.5 percent of Kubal, which is actually called Kubikenborg Aluminium. Kubal is Sweden's only aluminum smelter and is owned by the Russian steel company Rusal. Gadaffi has about 1.5 percent ownership stake in Rusal, which is controlled by the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.
Dejan Lucic of the former Yugoslavia has posted an article entitled "The Rothschild Octopus" by Vlada Sindjelic that explains how the Rothschild family and Oleg Deripaska have colonized Montenegro and acquired its most valuable mineral assets. Sindjelic claims that Deripaska is a Khazar (Ashkenazi Jew from Khazaria):
An important role in the colonization of Montenegro was played by Oleg Deripaska, a Khazar multimillionaire from Russia. Nathaniel Rothschild himself has boasted of having excellent relations with him. As one of Rothschild branches, Deripaska’s company Rusal bought KAP (The Aluminium Plant Podgorica). Through its affiliate Salamon, it took over the bauxite mine in Niksic. It should be mentioned that Rusal and Glencore often act together. The Austrian company Strabag, in which Deripaska has a lare part, has bought over the Crnagoraput company. Tourist premises are being purchased as well as attractive pieces of seaside land, building land...
Gaddafi's investment in Kubal and Rusal is most likely a result of the Gaddafi family's close connection with Nathaniel "Nat" Rothschild (see below). As the New York Times reported in its 9 March 2007 article entitled "The Man Who May Become the Richest Rothschild": "Mr. Rothschild is a principal adviser to Oleg Deripaska, one of the richest oligarchs in Russia and the owner of the aluminum giant Rusal, which recently merged with two other companies to create the world’s largest aluminum company."

Nat Rothschild is a shadow director at Rusal, where Israeli/South African Ivan Glasenberg sits on the board of directors. Glasenberg, who has worked for Marc Rich since 1984, has been CEO of Glencore since 2002. Two of Glencore's Israeli/Belgian metal traders came to New York in 1999 to create an international trading division at Hugo Neu, the Rothschild/Mossad-linked metal trading company that managed the destruction in Asian smelters of the steel (evidence) from the World Trade Center.

Why has Gaddafi, who claims to be opposed to Israel, invested untold billions of dollars from Libya's oil fund with Jewish and Israeli oligarchs who support Israel's Mossad? Is he really crazy or is it all an act?
THE MILITARY INTERVENTION
The intervention by French, British and U.S. military forces comes too late for many people in Libya, especially those who have been killed and wounded by forces loyal to the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The rebels in Libya have been strenuously calling for support from the United Nations and the Western democracies since their revolt against Gaddafi began. In this video a Libyan civilian points out that the weapons being used by Gaddafi against his people came from Western democracies. "All the world - the Americans, the French, Italy - all the world helped Gaddafi. Gave him guns, from all the world. For what, oil?"
Why were Western democracies selling weapons to the dictator who, they all agreed, had bombed PanAm 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988? Why were they supporting a terrorist? How much sense does it make for Western democracies to arm a tyrant who has bombed their planes and civilians? What was Gaddafi doing for them to earn such treatment?
DID GADDAFI FUND SARKOZY ELECTION?
President Nicolas Sarkozy was on very friendly terms with Muammar Gaddafi until the Libyan dictator began his violent attacks on pro-democracy rebels. Sarkozy then began to support the Libyan revolutionaries and led the call for military intervention. Saif Gaddafi, the dictator's son, claims that Libyan money funded Sarkozy's 2007 presidential campaign.
Saif Gaddafi, the son of the Libyan dictator, said in a recent interview with EuroNews that Muammar Gaddafi had funded the election campaign of Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France. Gaddafi's claims were made in response to a question about Sarkozy's call for a no-fly zone in Libya.
"GIVE US BACK OUR MONEY"
Gaddafi’s son, who has lied to the press before, had been asked for his opinion of Sarkozy, who has recognized the revolutionary national council of the rebels based in Benghazi and called for military intervention in Libya:
Sarkozy must first give back the money he took from Libya to finance his electoral campaign. We funded it and we have all the details and are ready to reveal everything. The first thing we want this clown to do is to give the money back to the Libyan people. He was given assistance so that he could help them. But he’s disappointed us: Give us back our money. We have all the bank details and documents for the transfer operations and we will make everything public soon.
Nicolas Sarkozy's former presidential election campaign head has rejected claims by Muammar Gaddafi's son that they received funding from Libya. French Interior Minister Claude Gueant, the president's chief adviser for four years, told French radio station Europe 1 that if the Libyans had such incriminating material about Sarkozy's campaign funding, instead of "saying it all the time, they should just go ahead and do it".
PLAYING THE AL-QAEDA CARD
This Islamist card proved to be quite a handy tool for most Arab dictators and for the west as well; whenever things ran unexpectedly out of hand or when danger of political unrest or domestic opposition loomed...
- Dr. Ashraf Ezzat, "ARAB UPRISINGS: Time to Quit Playing al Qaeda’s Card"
"It is obvious now that this issue is run by al-Qaeda."
- Muammar Gaddafi on the popular uprising in Libya.
“One of our biggest concerns is Libya descending into chaos and becoming a giant Somalia...It's right now not something that we see in the offing, but many of the al-Qaeda activists in Afghanistan and later in Iraq came from Libya and came from eastern Libya, which is now the so-called free area of Libya.”
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Senate Foreign Relations Committee, 2 March 2011
"Clinton's Biggest Fear: Al Qaeda Rising In Libya"
"Al Qaeda commander calls for Islamic rule in Libya"
The Washington Times published an article on March 13 about the "top Libyan al Qaeda commander" urging Libyans to overthrow Col. Gaddafi’s regime and establish Islamic rule. The video and translation were provided to the U.S. press by the Israeli disinformation outfit "SITE Intelligence Group" headed by Mossadnik Rita Katz. The image is said to be Abu Yahya al-Libi, an official in al Qaeda's Shariah Committee, addressing Libyans in a video speech released on jihadist forums on Saturday, March 12, 2011. (AP Photo/SITE Intelligence Group)
Mossad's Rita Katz runs SITE Intelligence Group, an Israeli Mossad disinformation source that lets one "Monitor Jihadist Threats & Trends", for only $29.99 per month. I discovered that several entries in the U.S. Public Records Index for the Israeli agents Rita and Ari M. Katz had been pulled from the index, which is extremely unusual. The purged public records for Rita and Ari Katz in Potomac and Gaithersburg, Maryland, are found at the bottom of this article.
As U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Paris to discuss possible responses to the anti-Gaddafi revolt in Libya, notice how the controlled media seeks to frame the choice facing Western leaders in Libya. Clinton says she fears Al Qaeda coming to power in Libya while the Israeli disinfo outfit "SITE Intelligence Group" provides a video supposedly showing a "top Libyan al Qaeda commander" calling for Islamic rule in Libya. The choice is made easy: Either Libya becomes a terror state run by Al Qaeda or we accept the continued dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi. The Washington Times article, entitled "Al Qaeda commander calls for Islamic rule in Libya", included this plug for the brutal dictator: "Col. Gadhafi also has helped the United States track al Qaeda and other terrorist suspects in the region."
While the U.S. and NATO allies dally and dither about the need to have a legal basis to impose a no-fly zone to prevent Gaddafi from using aircraft to kill Libyan rebels, we should recall that they had absolutely no problem imposing no-fly zones in Iraq and the former Yugoslavia without any such legal basis. Why are they now suddenly so circumspect and slow to act in Libya?
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, secretary general of NATO, said the organisation has agreed to do nothing to support the rebels in Libya. NATO's position is reported to be a victory for the U.S. and Germany, which are opposed to any military intervention. The European Union's foreign policy chief Baroness Ashton of Britain warned EU leadersagainst backing a no-fly zone over Libya.
The following article sheds some light on why Zionist-controlled politicians dither on the crisis in Libya and reveals some of Gaddafi's most powerful allies -- and they include the Rothschild family and their state of Israel.
* * * * *
GADDAFI THE JEW
Muammar Gaddafi is a Jew, according to his Israeli relatives. This would explain his close connections to the Rothschild family and the Mossad.
During a discussion on Israel Radio they just dropped this little tidbit. There is a Jew left in Libya. His name is Muammar Gadhafi.
- "You won't believe this...Gadhafi's mother was Jewish", Carl in Jerusalem, 22 February 2011
Of his early life little is known, and even less is certain. He was born, it is said, in Sirte, a desert town, the son of a goatherd. Other versions suggest that his real father may have been French, and his mother Jewish.
- "Colonel Gaddafi is turning into a mellow megolamaniac"(comments), The Telegraph, 13 June 2009
Colonel Gaddafi's close ties to the Rothschild family and the Mossad make complete sense when we consider the fact that he is a Jew, the son of a Jewish mother, according to a report aired on Israeli television. How much oil money has the brutal Libyan dictator secretly stashed away in Israeli banks?
When an Arab journalist told me that Muammar Gaddafi was Jewish and that his mother's relative lived in Israel and had been on Israeli television, I thought it must be some kind of joke. But it's not. Here is the Israeli program in which his second cousin and another relative explain that the "Madman of Libya" is actually a Jew. According to the relatives' testimony on this show, there is no question that Gaddafi is a Jew under Jewish - and Israeli law. Gaddafi's Jewish blood explains his very close connection to the Rothschilds and their preferred intelligence agency - the Mossad. Now it all makes sense. This is also what my Algerian friends have been saying for years about the rulers of Algeria; both Libya and Algeria are oil-rich Jewish dictatorships that oppress the people and steal the wealth.
An Israeli television program in which Gaddafi's Jewish roots are discussed, by his second cousin in Israel. "With a Jewish Grandma, and a Jewish Mother, Gaddafi may seek refuge in Israel", according to Israel Insider.
The Israeli television program discusses Gaddafi's Jewish mother and grandmother. This is how Israel Insider explains the connection:
Israel’s Channel 2 News last year interviewed two Israeli women of Libyan origin who claimed to be relatives of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Israel Today's Ryan Jones reminds us.
The older of the two interviewees, Guita Brown, claimed that she is Gaddafi’s second cousin: her grandmother was the sister of Gaddafi’s grandmother. The younger of the two women, Rachel Saada, Brown's granddaughter , explained in more detail: “The story goes that Gaddafi’s grandmother, a Jewess, was married to a Jewish man at first. But he treated her badly, so she ran away and married a Muslim sheikh. Their child was the mother of Gaddafi.” While Gaddafi’s grandmother converted to Islam when she married the sheikh, according to Jewish religious law (and common sense), she was ethnically still Jewish. And that makes Gaddafi's mother a Jewess. And if Gaddafi's mother is a Jewess, what does that make Gaddafi?
At that point in the news report, the anchor exclaimed, “So, the point is that Gaddafi doesn’t just have Jewish relatives, he is Jewish!”
That may come in handy. According to Israel's Law of Return, anyone with a Jewish grandparent is entitled to become a citizen, no questions asked.
GADDAFI'S CLOSE TIES TO THE ROTHSCHILDS
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who is seen as the Libyan dictator's most likely successor, was also a guest of billionaire financiers Jacob and Nat Rothschild at their Corfu villa where the Business Secretary stayed a week...days before it emerged that the Lockerbie bomber was to be freed.

- "Gadhafi's stolen billions stashed in London" Daily Telegraph, 25 February 2011
The evidence indicates that Muammar Qaddafi, who controls the largest oil reserves in Africa, works closely with the Rothschild family and the Mossad. This makes complete sense, if, as the Israeli television program reported, Qaddafi is actually a Jew.
"Fighter aircraft were bombing civilians on the streets of Tripoli, this is unprecedented violence."
- Ali al-Essawi, Libyan Ambassador to India, 22 February 2011
Gaddafi’s youngest son Khamis was reportedly bringing mercenaries from African countries to fight against anti-regime protestors. Identity cards from Guinea, Niger, Chad, Mauritania and Sudan were found on individuals wearing Libyan uniforms and killed in the eastern city of Benghazi and other locations.
- Using Mercenaries to Quell Libya Revolution
A video image of one of Qaddafi's mercenaries who was killed...
...while other suspected African mercenaries stand in a room in a court in Benghazi as they are held by anti-Qaddafi protesters, February 24, 2011.
The Qaddafi family is closely tied to and invested with the Rothschild family, which raises the question: Is Muammar Qaddafi, the brutal and mercurial Libyan dictator, working with Israel's Mossad? The evidence suggests that he is. We need to remember that the Mossad works hand-in-hand with the Rothschild family, which controls global mining and oil production operations. Libya has the largest proven reserves of oil in Africa and exports about 1.5 million barrels per day and has important refineries that supply essential petroleum products to Europe.
Major pipelines of Libya - Green lines are oil, red are gas
Let's look at the evidence that Qaddafi is working with the Rothschild family and their intelligence agency, the Mossad.
First, Libya invested a reported $500 million into Allen Stanford's money laundering operation that was exposed two years ago this month to be a scam in which some $8 billion disappeared. Stanford's operation, based in Antigua and Houston, was one in which senior Mossadniks were both investors and recipients of investments from Allen Stanford. The Israeli venture capital funds which received millions of dollars from Stanford are all closely linked to the Mossad. Yair Shamir, the son of the infamous terrorist leader Yitzchak Shamir, was one of the investors in Stanford's "bank" in Antigua.
Yair Shamir (inset), the son of the notorious Zionist terrorist Yitzchak Shamir, is chairman and managing partner of the Catalyst Fund, a Mossad venture capital fund that received tens of millions of dollars from the Allen Stanford money-laundering operation. Shamir was also an investor in the Stanford bank.
Qaddafi invested the $500 million in Stanford's operation three weeks before the fund collapsed owing investors some $8 billion. The Stanford bank was reportedly a Mossad money-laundering operation funded with illegal drug profits. Libya, however, has never made a claim for the lost $500 million. Why would Qaddafi invest half a billion dollars in a Mossad-linked scam and not ask for the money back?
Secondly, there is the Rothschild connection to Qaddafi, through his son Saif. As the Daily Mail reported on February 24:
The friendship of oddball financier Nat Rothschild, 39, scion of one of Europe’s most distinguished Jewish families, with Colonel Gaddafi’s epicene son, Saif, is remarkable. Colonel Gaddafi confiscated all Jewish property in Libya when he came to power. All debts to Jews were cancelled and emigration legally prohibited. But in 2004 – the year Tony Blair befriended the Libyan madman – Gaddafi said he would discuss compensating Jews stripped of their possessions. It’s said Saif – who hoped to succeed his father – was behind these moves. A sop to Nat Rothschild?
Nat Rothschild works closely with the Qaddafi family.
GADHAFI MONEY STASHED IN ROTHSCHILD BANKS
The Daily Telegraph published an article entitled "Gadhafi's stolen billions stashed in London" that points out the Gadhafi family ties with the Rothschilds:
This was painfully revealed when Saif, a supposed friend of the West, spoke on Libyan television this week. Saif took the awkward manner of an international plutocrat, forced only by circumstances out of his usual exalted milieu of Blairs, Deripaskas, Mandelsons and Rothschilds, to address Libya's "little people"...Swinging London is but one hub of Gadhafi Inc. - a useful networking site where the Rothschilds were able to point Saif Gadhafi to investment opportunities in marina complexes in Montenegro.
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of the Libyan dictator
In a profile piece on Saif Gaddafi, The Observer provides more detailsabout the Gaddafi family's close ties to the Rothschild family:
Saif is an acquaintance of Lord Mandelson and met the former Labour minister at a Corfu villa [of Jacob Rothschild] the week before it was announced that the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, would be released from a Scottish prison. The two men met again when they were guests at Lord Rothschild's mansion in Buckinghamshire.
Rothschild's son and heir, Nat, also a close friend of Mandelson, held a party in New York attended by Saif in 2008. Saif in turn invited Nat Rothschild to his 37th birthday party in Montenegro, where the financier is investing in a luxury resort.
Saif Gaddafi met with Lord Mandelson (left) and Jacob (4th Baron) Rothschild (center) at Rothschild's villa in Corfu in August 2009, one week before it was announced that the "Lockerbie bomber" would be released from prison. Rothschild's father (Victor, the 3rd Baron Rothschild) worked in British intelligence during World War II in disinformation and espionage. Victor is alleged to have been a Soviet spy, which led him to state in December 1986, "I am not, and never have been, a Soviet agent."
Then there is the fact that Tony Blair serves as an adviser to Muammar Qaddafi. But who is Blair serving? It is well known that Blair is a Zionist-controlled politician who has sacrificed hundreds of British lives in the criminal fraud known as the "War on Terror". The Daily Mail reported in July 2010 that Blair had secret talks with Qaddafi in Tripoli:
Tony Blair was flown to Libya for secret talks with Colonel Gaddafi just days after denying he was an adviser to the dictator. Mr Blair was 'entertained as a brother', a senior Libyan government source has revealed. He told the Daily Mail that the former prime minister had offered Gaddafi, with whom he is on first-name terms, 'a great deal of invaluable advice'.
Mr Blair is said to be on first-name terms with the Libyan dictator and was treated like a 'brother' on his visit, according to the Daily Mail (U.K.)...
...although Britain officially blamed Qaddafi for the terror bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie. "There was, however, nothing remotely real or convincing (let alone any kind of pattern) in the case against Megrahi", Paul Foot concluded in his special report Lockerbie: The Flight from Justice about the flawed process that convicted Abdelbasset Ali Mohamed Al Megrahi, an official in Libyan intelligence, for the bombing.
Tony Blair is just one of the many Zionist-controlled politicians who have embraced the madman of Tripoli. Silvio Berlusconi of Italy, for example, who is very close to Qaddafi, was given the "Distinguished Statesman Award" by the Anti-Defamation League of the B'nai B'rith in September 2003. If Qaddafi were really the terrorist behind Pan Am 103, would Berlusconi and all these other Zionist-controlled western leaders be allowed to embrace him as a friend?
Lastly, there is the claim made by Victor Ostrovsky in his books about the Mossad that Israeli agents based in Tripoli had sent messages that appeared to have been sent by Qaddafi's government. These counterfeit messages were picked up by American intelligence and were used to build their case against Libya. If Mossad was running such sophisticated intelligence operations in Libya in the 1980s it is more than likely that their penetration of Qaddafi's government had deepened in the 25 years since. The evidence strongly indicates that is the case.
SARAH IN TRIPOLI
The revolt and bloodshed in Libya will certainly lead to the end of the 42-year-old regime of Col. Muammar al-Gaddafi and his thugs. There is very little television footage coming from Libya, but the BBC Newhour program (of February 20) had an excellent telephone interview with a young Libyan woman named Sarah, in Tripoli. This is a very powerful and moving interview that helps one understand what is really happening in Libya. The interview with "Sarah in Tripoli" begins shortly after minute 26 and 30 seconds into the program. One can use the time button and begin listening at 26:30.
The interview can be heard on the BBC World Service website here:
Col. Muammar al-Gaddafi has been dictator of oil-rich Libya since 1969
Gaddafi and Silvio Berlusconi of Italy are quite close. Libya has many investments in Italy, the Guardian reported, "These include a stake of about 2% in Fiat, 7.5% of Juventus football club, a 2% stake in – and joint venture with – Italian aerospace and defence group Finmeccanica and 7.5% in UniCredit, the bank."
Britain's Tony Blair, who is controlled by Zionist money, was quite willing to embrace the madman of Libya - the same Arab tyrant who is said to have been behind the terror bombing over Lockerbie. How much sense does this make?
