We need a statement from HA urgently for any updates regarding Imam Musa Sadr. Are there any planned press conference or speech by Sayed Nasrallah?

well,maybe the silence however distasteful for us,maybe part of the plan to first get the Imam free and safe.the same was done for the Hezballah officers freed recently from egypt.

Why don't you tell us where you got it from, or when/where is was taken. No honest person should be afraid of giving context.

Yeah I agree, where did it come from? In today's world, everyone has to come around the table and sit and talk. Discuss. Negotiate. That's what happens in politics. Doesn't mean they are friends. I'm not really a lover for the IRI but to be fair, this picture could be in any context. And Insha'Allah, I hope that Sayyed Musa is alive, what an impact that would make...he is not just for Lebanon, but for everyone who's a lover of Ahlul-Bayt; I hope more news comes out about this and we separate the truth from the propaganda IA

Qaddafi hinted Musa Sadr abduction

http://presstv.com/detail/167457.html

Exclusive footage reportedly discloses Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi's 'confessions' about the missing Shia cleric, Imam Moussa al-Sadr's presence in Libya.

The Lebanese satellite television station, al-Manar, says it has footage of Libya's Gaddafi in which the embattled ruler has confessed to Sadr's presence in the crisis-hit North African state.

“This person (Imam Moussa) disappeared and nobody knows how. I wish we knew who's responsible for the issue. On one hand we missed him and on the other Libya's image has been tarnished; namely, we invited him and he accepted. He came to Libya and vanished. Someone seeks to disrepute Libya,” Gaddafi is quoted as saying in the video recording more than 25 years ago.

Iran following up on Musa Sadr case

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/167541.html

Mon Feb 28, 2011

gholami20110228163238997.jpg

The Iranian Foreign Ministry says it is following up on the case of Lebanese Shia leader Imam Moussa al-Sadr, who went missing in Libya in 1978.

"Imam Moussa al-Sadr is known as a great character in the Muslim world and we merely hope that his fate will be determined," Deputy Foreign Minister Hassan Qashqavi said on Monday.

He made the remarks after Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi reportedly confessed in a video to Sadr's presence in the crisis-hit North African country, IRNA reported.

It is widely believed in Sadr, the founder of the Lebanon's Amal movement, was kidnapped on the orders of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in August 1978. Accompanied by two of his companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin, Sadr was scheduled to meet with officials from the Gaddafi regime.

At the time, Libyan authorities claimed that the influential cleric and his colleagues had caught a flight to Rome. However, Italian officials said the three men were never onboard the plane. In 2008, the government in Beirut issued an arrest warrant for Gaddafi over Sadr's disappearance. Born in the holy city of Qom in 1929, Sadr went to Lebanon to work for the civil rights of Shias in the southern city of Tyre in 1959.

Most of Sadr's followers are convinced that Gaddafi ordered his assassination in a dispute over Libyan payments to Lebanese groups, but the Imam's family argues he could still be alive in a Libyan prison.

Pardon my ignorance, but who exactly is Musa al-Sadr? Could he possibly be related to Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (ra) by any chance? :unsure:

yes they are related.i think Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr is either the father or uncle of Sayyed Muqtada al-Sadr.

Imam Musa al-Sadr's father is Grand Ayatollah Sadr al-Din al-Sadr.

Imam Sadr orginally was from tyre.he went to iran to study and returned to lebanon to lead the shia and started the movement for the deprived.he restored confidence and hope in the then impoverished shia population in lebanon.after rallying for shia rights while holding on to national unity and co-existence,he was kidnapped in 1978 by qaddafi when the Imam was visiting libya.the Imam refused to participate in the lebanese civil war that started in 1975.

Imam Musa al-Sadr (HA) is cousins with Shahid Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (qas) and Shahid Sayyed Muhammad Muhammad Sadeq al-Sadr (ra)

Shahid Sayyed Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (qas) is the father in law of Sayyed Moqtada al-Sadr (HA) who is the son of Shahid Sayyed Muhammad Muhammad Sadeq al-Sadr (ra)

Libyan Minister Impersonated As Imam Sadr in Rome, Then Assassinated

Local Editor

Libyan Leader Muammar Al Gadhafi's lies are only exposed more as more stories related to his statements surface, out of which are those related to the abduction of Sayyed Moussa Sadr.

In this context, Najib Mohammad Aghribil, the nephew of Libyan Minister commissioned to Lebanon revealed that on the 1st eve of the civil war, his Uncle Saleh Zayed Abdel Karim impersonated as Sayyed Moussa Al Sadr traveled to Roma to fabricate evidence that lead to a conclusion that Imam Moussa Sadr had left Libya to Rome, but he was liquidated by his (Gadhafi's) personal assistant.

Aghrabil also said that four years to the disappearance of Imam Moussa, particularly in the summer of 1982, right before the "Israeli" invasion to Lebanon, the security office of Gadhafi ordered Abdel Karim to impersonate as Imam Moussa Sadr and travel to Rome.

Aghrabil added "My uncle, in one of his meetings with a security general, who was his friend, said that the security office has given him an easy mission in Rome but he did not want to execute it even though it was easy. But he reiterated he is forced to accomplish the mission. Only days after he left Tripoli, Saleh ZAyed Abdel Karim returned but in a coffin.

"Gadhafi's wife, Safiyah, a few generals and officers came to console us, after an officer had called and said that my uncle died in Rome," Aghrabil sad adding "but only two hours after the coffin was brought home, sudden unease came up as one of Abdel Karim's sons entered the house and said he got information that assures his father was assassinated in Rome rather than simply died. He said they had found a fake bear, eyeglasses, and a religious outfit in his father's room in the hotel he stayed at in Rome."

He continued "We tried to open the coffin, but it was a locked iron box. We tried again to open the steely box but when the security men heard the clatter they entered the room, prevented us from opening the coffin and forced us to bury it."

Aghrabil said he believes the Libyan regime tried to fabricate evidence implying that Imam Sadr left Libya. "The regime has its methods and strategies that you can never even think of. But obviously, in the case of Imam Moussa Sadr, the Libyan regime was very confused," he concluded.

found on the net thought I'd share.

Iran renews pledge on Sadr's fate

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/168391.html

Sat Mar 5, 2011 7:40PM

moghimi20110305182438467.jpg

Iran's Foreign Minister vows to pursue the fate of Lebanese Shia leader Imam Moussa al-Sadr, who went missing in Libya more than three decades ago with “every means” at its disposal.

In a Thursday meeting with the relatives of the Shia cleric, Ali Akbar Salehi said Tehran has tasked the Foreign Ministry with “pursuing the issue…through international human rights organizations,” the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The renowned Shia cleric and two of his companions went missing during an official visit to Libya in August 1978.

The case has been a long-standing sore issue in Lebanon, where authorities blame Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi and his aides for the disappearance of the three.

In 2008, the Lebanese government issued an arrest warrant for Gaddafi over Sadr's disappearance.

Gaddafi's rule has been seriously undermined in recent weeks in the face of massive anti-government protests in the oil-rich country.

Salehi stressed that Tehran would use “every means” at its disposal to determine the fate of the Iranian-born cleric.

Committee formed to pursue Imam al-Sadr’s fate: MP

Tehran Times Political Desk

TEHRAN - MP Kazem Jalali announced on Tuesday that the Majlis National Security Committee has formed a special committee to pursue the case of Imam Musa al-Sadr, an Iranian-born Shia cleric who mysteriously disappeared in Libya in 1978.

Taking to reporters, Jalali said the decision was made at the committee’s meeting on Tuesday.

Jalali, who is the rapporteur of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, added, “Given the relevant documentation, it is obvious that the bloodthirsty regime of (Libyan leader Muammar) Gaddafi abducted Imam Musa al-Sadr and jailed him. He is alive and we are pursuing the release of Imam Musa al-Sadr.”

In August 1978, al-Sadr departed for Libya with two companions to meet officials of Qadhafi’s government. They were never heard from again, and many believe they met with foul play at the hands of Qadhafi.

In August 2008, Lebanon issued an arrest warrant for Qadhafi and 11 other Libyan officials, charging them with kidnapping al-Sadr. Qadhafi was also indicted for “inciting the abduction” of the senior cleric.

Libya has denied responsibility, claiming that al-Sadr and his companions left Libya for Italy in 1978. However, many believe that al-Sadr is still alive and is being held in a secret jail in Libya.

Hezbollah has also said Libya is first and foremost responsible for al-Sadr’s disappearance.

I sincerely hope that Imam Musa Sadr is found alive and well but I'm still a little skeptical about this report. If he is in fact alive, then why are we only hearing about it now? You would think that after decades of sitting in prison, at some point somebody would have seen him and mentioned it as they've done now. What benefit would Gaddafi get by keeping him alive for all these years?

Libya, NATO's fresh prey

Mon Feb 28, 2011 8:5AM

By Hassan Hanizadeh

The views expressed in this article are those of the author and not necessarily those of Press TV.

The deplorable situation in Libya and the brutal killing of people at the hands of the country's dictator raises a question: Why has the West, including the United States, remained tight-lipped in the face of Muammar Ghaddafi's atrocities?

Two quite different eras can be distinguished during Ghaddafi's 42-year rule over Libya.

The first era spanned 1969 through 2003 when Ghaddafi had a completely anti-American stance.

In 1969, Colonel Ghaddafi toppled former Libyan monarch Idris Al-Sanussi in a military coup, introducing a new literature into the Arab world's political structure.

At that time, the Arab world desperately needed such a literature as it was suffering from the scars of the June 1967 war in which Arab countries had been defeated.

Ghaddafi was well aware that Arab nations needed anti-Zionist and anti-imperialist mottos in the early 1970's, so he introduced a series of radical slogans then.

His popularity reached its zenith in the 1970's following the death of former Egyptian Leader Jamal Abdul Nasser, though Arab analysts are still doubtful about the nature of Ghaddafi's coup.

Ghaddafi was, in fact, working towards the interests of the US and Israel without offering any solution to the Palestinian crisis.

One of Ghaddafi's plans in the late 70's was to settle Palestinian refugees in South Lebanon permanently.

In a meeting with Leader of the Lebanese Shias Imam Musa Sadr in August 1978, Ghaddafi put forward the idea of settling Palestinians in South Lebanon, which was rejected outright by the Lebanese leader.

That infuriated Colonel Ghaddafi as Imam Musa Sadr believed Palestinian refugees should return to their homeland.

One of the reasons behind Ghaddafi's abduction of Imam Musa Sadr was his opposition to the suspicious schemes orchestrated by the Libyan dictator to create a new homeland for Palestinians.

On the domestic front, Ghaddafi banned any political activity outside popular committees and imposed a heavy security atmosphere on the Libyan society.

Cracking down on Libyan political elite, assassinating national and Islamic figures opposing the Libyan regime and allocating billions of dollars annually to hunt for the opposition were part of Ghaddafi's domestic policies.

On the regional front, Ghaddafi never offered any remarkable assistance to the Palestinian people to counter Israel, but rather gave the thumbs down to any solution which would lead to Israel's isolation in the international community.

Colonel Ghaddafi has been the most controversial leader in the Arab world over the past four decades because of his contradictory and lop-sided policies.

His war of words with Arab leaders in the Arab League meetings was always front-page news in Western media.

The second era in Ghaddafi's rule began when US forces invaded Iraq.

In 2003 a little while after the overthrow of former Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein, the Libyan ruler changed tack and adopted a totally different policy.

In a U-turn, Ghaddafi changed his policies and gave in to the West, including the US.

He handed over all his nuclear arms and weapons of mass destruction to the US, and paid a hefty compensation to Washington and Paris for two air accidents involving a Pan -American and an Air France plane.

Ghaddafi also called on the West, including the US, to leave his regime alone in exchange for receiving cheap oil and top-secret information from Libya on Islamic movements in the region.

In the meantime, Libyan political elite spoke out against Ghaddafi's unbalanced policies and his submission to the West.

But the Libyan autocrat put thousands of local opposition supporters in his horrendous jails as he believed a top priority was to protect the Libyan regime.

Now in the face of the popular revolution in Libya, Ghaddafi is committing heinous crimes against the Libyan people instead of obeying the nation's will.

But why has the West given the Libyan dictator a free hand to kill his own people?

It is believed that because of the geo-strategic importance of Libya and the existence of oil wells off the Mediterranean coast, the US is trying to include Libya in Article 7 of the UN Charter by adopting a resolution at the world body.

Although the UN Security Council has, in Resolution 1970, imposed a series of sanctions against Ghaddafi and his family, the world body also seems to be planning other anti-Libya resolutions in the future.

Article 7 allows for the US and NATO member states to occupy Libya militarily under the pretext of maintaining peace in the region and in North Africa, and helping the Libyan nation.

The US and NATO's possible occupation of Libya will be for them to get their hands on the African nation's oil resources.

Libya's oil reserves are estimated at 42 billion barrels. Libya's oil is of very high quality on the one hand, and the country is located near Europe on the other, making the African nation economically important to the US and Europe.

Therefore, the West is mostly seeking to plunder Libya's oil wealth rather than caring about the Libyan people, and that is why the US and Europe have given the Libyan dictator a free rein to clamp down on the people.

Sister you are on the right track.

That's the central idea of why he kidnapped him.

Back then the PLO and Shiites, had a fierce civil war of those regions.

Shiites told Palestinians 100,000x, not to launch missiles and attacks from Lebanese soils.

Did they listen? Not at all....they launched attacks against Israel from those areas, and then Israel dropped bombs on women, children, and old men, thanks to these selfish Palestinian refugees.

And Qaddafi was so pathetic, he took their side over the Shiites.

Since the shah's time in Iran, people know this guy is a fraud.

He preaches socialism but lives like a king and pays for lavish parties for himself as well as his sons abroad.

Qaddafi's idea was to give Palestine to the occupiers and move all the Palestinians to Lebanon. He was wrong. Kidnapping Imam Musa Sadr was one of the most heinous things that he did.

Just to make sure nobody misunderstands us, Imam Musa Sadr wanted the Palestinians to live in their homeland, Palestine, not because he didn't want them in Lebanon, but because it is their right for Palestinians to live in their homeland Palestine.

Praying that our people find Imam Musa Sadr HA and free him from captivity.

'Imam Moussa Sadr definitely alive'

Wed Aug 31, 2011 10:21AM GMT

A senior member of the Lebanese Amal Movement has expressed confidence that Shia cleric Imam Moussa al-Sadr, who went missing in Libya more than three decades ago, is still alive.

“We have been in contact with Libyan opposition and revolutionaries during recent years, and they emphasized that Imam Moussa Sadr is alive… but believed he has been frequently transferred to different prisons in Libya,” said Khalil Hamdan in the Iranian city of Qom on Wednesday.

He stressed the significance of following up Sadr's case “with patience and precision,” and stated, “Based on the latest information, we believe that he is definitely alive,” Mehr news agency reported.

The top Amal official expressed hope that the cleric would be released in the near future thanks to further efforts by Iranian and Lebanese officials and his family.

Sadr, the founder of the Amal Movement, went missing during an official visit to the Libyan capital Tripoli in August 1978.

It is widely believed that the popular and highly revered Lebanese Shia cleric of Iranian descent was kidnapped on the orders of senior Libyan officials.

Accompanied by two of his companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin, the top Shia cleric was scheduled to meet with Libyan officials.

In 2008, the Beirut government issued an arrest warrant for Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi over Sadr's disappearance.

Who is doing the transferring? The whole country has collapsed. The dictator is missing.

Is he speculating? Does he have inside information? Wishful thinking?

They're in contact with the NTC in Libya, lol most of Qaddafi's previous government defected to the revolution, they've put together a commission and will get to the bottom of it inshallah.
