“We will stay, we will resist and we will not give in. Strike with your missiles, two, three, 10 or 100 years,"
“our backs to the wall”, Gaddafi said on June 22, 2011 that the battle will continue!
Colonel Muammar Gaddafi said on Wednesday evening in an audio tape broadcast on Libyan state television that he was “his back to the wall”, that he did not fear death and that the battle against the "crusader" West will continue “to the beyond”.
“We will resist and the battle will continue to the beyond, until you are wiped out. But we will not be finished”, said Muammar Gaddafi in homage to his comrade Kweildi al-Hamidi, several members of whose family were killed on Monday in Nato raids on his residence (*).
"There’s no longer any agreement after you killed our children and our grandchildren (…) We have our backs to the wall. You (the West) can move back," he added. "We are not frightened. We are not trying to live or escape," he said, denouncing a crusade against a Muslim country targeting civilians and children. (*)
"By what right you are targeting the politicians and their families?", denounced Colonel Gaddafi, in a deep voice.
He said the office of Kweildi al-Hamidi, in Tripoli was bombed four times.
"They sought him because he is a hero. When they have not found him in his office, they wanted to kill him in his house, he said.
He urged the UN to send investigators to the bombed residence of Mr. Hamidi to check that it is a civil and not a military site as NATO says.
He also promised to build a monument, "the highest in North Africa", to the glory of Khaleda, four years, the granddaughter of Mr. Hamidi, killed in the raid, according to the authorities in Tripoli.
"We will stay, we will resist and we will not give in. Strike with your missiles, two, three, 10 or 100 years", insisted Colonel Gaddafi.
"Honor to the Hamidi family and to us glory," he said.
(*) On Monday NATO led an air strike in Sorman, 70 km west of Tripoli, aiming a residence of Kweildi al-Hamidi, an influential politician and old companion of leader Muammar Gaddafi – one of the officers who were with him during the Revolution of 1 September 1969 – killing 15 people.
Several members of Hamidi’s family were killed in the raid, including three children.
NATO has admitted having led a "precision strike" (sic) to a " high-level command and control centre" (resic).
