AJC On Air: David Harris show

Summary: The AJC weekly radio messages are broadcast on the CBS radio network, before The Osgood File. All AJC radio commentaries since 2001 are available at The full text of this week’s commentary follows: The situation in Libya is alarming. Muammar Qaddafi is holding on for dear life, while taking the lives of hundreds of his countrymen who’ve protested his dictatorial rule. The reports are horrific – mass murder, execution-style killings, and rapes. The world’s response has been inadequate. Governments are asking Qaddafi to respect the rights of his citizens, as if that’ll somehow do the trick. More is needed. Qaddafi must be told that he and his henchmen will be hunted down and held responsible in a court of law for the rivers of blood and widespread mayhem. And get this. Qaddafi’s Libya is on the UN Human Rights Council. No joke. This is a travesty. If the UN General Assembly acts, Libya can be removed. But will it act? Only if the democratic countries take a tough stand. The world is watching. Meanwhile, the Libyan people continue to be brutalized before the world’s eyes. AJC will not be silent.
