With the death toll in one of the most devastating humanitarian crisis continuing to climb, many are pointing to the fall of Muammar Qaddafi, and the destabilization of Libya, as a factor in the deaths of nearly 900 individuals in the Mediterranean Sea.
It sank on Sunday morning. Packed with migrants fleeing the African continent, a ship capsized off the shores of Tripoli, killing hundreds. Estimates suggest as many as 900 people lost their lives over to the incident.
As high as that number may be, it only accounts for half of those killed trying to cross the Mediterranean so far this year. Before the weekend’s shipwreck, another 900 had already died since the beginning of 2015. That’s a sharp rise when looking at the first four months of 2014, when only 90 had perished making similar crossings.
Muammar Al Gaddafi wrote in his book ISRATiN follow: There is no enmity between Arabs and Jews. In fact, the Jews are Adnanite cousins to the Arabs on the father’s side, who was a descendant of Abraham, peace by upon him. When the Jews were persecuted, their Arab brothers invited them to live alongside them in the town of al-Medina.

How Might the ARRF be Organized? Establishing the right command and control architecture is the first step towards the achievement of our aim and we have a number of successful models to choose from. However, our particular security environment would suggest that an organization modelled along the following lines would be appropriate:

It would be pointless in an article such as this to go into detail regarding the long list of African problems. Think of a problem that affects the human condition and you will find it in Africa. Wars of aggression, civil wars, famine, disease, natural disasters, ethnic cleansing, political instability, corruption and much more – we have it all. Africa is the world’s most warridden continent, with thousands of casualties each year through tribal or factional conflicts and arms proliferation adding to the continent’s woes. Last year, it was possible to count eleven major conflicts taking place on the continent with dozens of smaller conflagrations: more than on any other continent. Together these conflicts have produced over eight million refugees. We have a lot of help from the more affluent nations in trying to remedy many of these problems and for much of that we are grateful.
Assistance from governments and NGOs is extremely valuable and without it who knows how many more would have died. However, this assistance is generally given as a reaction to events and does not provide the long-term fix that Africa really needs. That long-term fix we Africans require is peace and security across the whole of our continent and for all of our people. We have to ensure that peace in Africa becomes the norm and that war and related instability become the unusual. Without peace and security our people will never
