Libyan journalist Meftah Buzeid shot dead in Benghazi

(Libya) In yet another fine example about how Muslims use religion in which to stifle debate, discussion and criticism, a leading outspoken critic of Islamic terrorists inside Libya, 50-year-old Meftah Buzeid chief editor of the Brnieq newspaper, was murdered while driving down a main street in the eastern city of Benghazi. The daily al-Wasat quoted a medical official as saying that Abu Zeid was shot three times in the head and abdomen.

Journalist Meftah Buzeid murdered Sunday
In an interview with the Libyan al-Ahrar TV network broadcast late Sunday, Meftah Buzeid said that he had met with General Khalifa Hifter who is leading an offensive against Islamic militants in the city, and warned of a civil war if the parliament remained in place. Another paper, London-based al-Quds al-Arabi, had quoted him three days ago as saying that he received a warning to leave the country in 24 hours.

His newspaper last week carried a front-page picture of Gen Hifter, and the editor, who was also a human rights activist, later said militiamen halted a shipment of the last issue on its way from Benghazi to the capital Tripoli.

Yup, way to go, Islamic terrorists, silence anybody who exposes your intolerant behaviour for the world to see.
