Syrian activists are circulating what they claimed to be the first video showing former Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi as a dead corpse.

Sami al-Hamwi, a Syrian activist, who tweeted the circulated video posted on YouTube, warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to remember what has happened to the Libyan dictator. Previous posted videos on Qaddafi’s death, did not show him dead, but showed him alive when he was captured near Sirte. The initial video was filmed by a bystander in a crowd and later aired on television. Qaddafi was shown dazed, wounded and being dragged off a vehicle’s bonnet and pulled to the ground by his hair.

“Keep him alive, keep him alive!” someone shouted in the first video. Later, Qaddafi goes out of view and gunshots ring out.

In the new video, however, he was shown dead, bloody and waering nothing on the top. He was surrounded by rebels inside a van with its back doors open to transfer him to a stretcher.

The crowds in the video, anxious to see Qaddafi’s slain body, were rowdy and it was not so clear to hear what people were saying, except for “Allahu Akbar” (God is great).

The new video was abruptly circulated in less than two weeks prior Libya’s election which took place on July 7.


What do you think? Will Assad face the same fate as Qaddafi? Tell us your thoughts below.

First of all, this shows Arabs are non-civilized and barbaric. Your insensitivity and lack of respect for human life is so evident by showing this photo at your site. For years you bow and worship these dictators as people in many Arabic countries are doing even today and then you show such great disrespect for them and human life. Shame on Arab culture and way of life. Assad is a dictator true but he is at least independent-minded and is a man unlike the Sheikhs that kiss the arse of Western leaders.
