Anti-Colonel Moammar Gaddafi Graffiti: A Photo Gallery Of Libyan Racism And Rebellion
COLONEL Moammar Gaddafi is not dead. He says he and his forces will fight a guerilla war. Is he now the rebel? All around Tripoli and other parts of Libya no longer under his control graffiti festoons the walls. The message is simple: Gaddafi is a monkey-skinned, Nazi, rat, bald-headed Jew. Well, so says the fascists who have overthrown the nutcase. We’ve compiled a gallery of the graffiti. What’s your favourite..?
In this Tuesday, July 5, 2011 photo, a caricature of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi seen on the wall in the rebel-held Benghazi, Libya, Tuesday, July 5, 2011. The graffiti, in Arabic, reads, "the people have spoken," and "dedicated to the February 7 youth." Moammar Gadhafi is loved in Libya's rebel capital _ as a subject for street artists to mock. Caricatures of the embattled Libyan leader dot walls and buildings across Benghazi in renderings that range from crude sketches to elaborate satire such as Gadhafi being knocked around by a rebel-colored boot or depicted with a Nazi swastika.
