Dr. Jamila al-Mahmoudi, Gaddafi’s bodyguard, commented on the recent appearance of the late Libyan son, Saif al-Islam, during an interview with journalist Robert F. Worth, for the New York Times, published today, Friday.
Dr. Jamila al-Mahmoudi, the former guard of Gaddafi, addressed her speech to Saif al-Islam, in a post on Facebook, and said: “Yassif al-Islam, you are the son of the leader Muammar Gaddafi, the owner of the largest national project..why do you come out after ten years with faint pictures and through an American or Western window.”
Gaddafi’s bodyguard: “The frustration continues”
And Gaddafi’s guard continued: “You are our son. Why don’t you speak directly with us? The Libyan media, no matter how we disagree with them, remains more profound and professional than the owners of foreign agendas that promote your evil name with your pictures that say that you are a gang leader fugitive from justice..and you are the prisoner number glory.. Unfortunately The frustration continues.”
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi in the latest appearance
In his first meeting with a foreign journalist in a decade, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi spoke about his years in captivity, and hinted at a bid for Libya’s presidency.
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi appeared in a photo published by the newspaper, wearing a black bay-style cloak with gold-colored edges, “as if he was indeed a head of state”, and a scarf elegantly wrapped around his head.
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi said: I deliberately appeared in this mysterious way because the Libyans you have to return to them step by step like a “strip dancer” and you have to play with their minds.
He added: The fighters who arrested me 10 years ago have been freed from the “illusion of revolution” and have finally realized that I can be a “strong ally to them.”
Saif al-Islam boasted about Gaddafi: “My father stopped riding his horse after the American bombing of Tripoli in 1986 and returned to his composure and riding his horse after the Lockerbie bombings.”

Saif al-Islam claimed in the interview with the New York Times that most of the ideas that gained popularity in the West, such as elections, have their origins in the Green Book – the philosophical book written by Muammar Gaddafi in 1975, in which he presents his ideas about regimes.
“Saif al-Islam lacks maturity”
American journalist Robert Worth, who conducted the interview with Saif al-Islam, said that the latter is the same person who lacks maturity as he was ten years ago.
He added that Saif al-Islam did not learn anything from the long years he spent in the wilderness and did not understand anything about the suffering experienced by the Libyans. Rather, it seems that he does not care.
He noted that Saif al-Islam has mastered the “dog whistling” policy pursued by Trump with his followers thirsty for violence.
And newspaper reports said weeks ago that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, is looking forward to the highest position in his country, and wants to run for the presidency in the December elections, a decade after his father was overthrown and killed.
And the British newspaper (thetimes) reported that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi began communicating with Western and other diplomats in the context of his quest to return to public life.
However, it remains unclear whether he will be allowed to run, as the new election law currently being drafted may disqualify him from participating.
48-year-old Saif al-Islam Gaddafi was captured and imprisoned by gunmen in 2011.
He was released after six years under an amnesty agreement. Since then, he has been in hiding. He still faces an arrest warrant in Libya.
According to The Times, he is also wanted by the International Criminal Court. Many of his brothers are still in prison, both in Libya and abroad.
The sources who spoke with the Times said that the ICC warrant could be withdrawn, but that Gaddafi is likely to run for office even if he is not.
