I am neither a historian, decent author or a journalist and the chances are, unless there is a link or reference to somewhere else, the perpetrator is your's truly-Renaud Sarda.

I am a Zionist and a proud Sephardi Jew who will fly the Israeli flag, and defend whatever Israel does.

7:56pm: Al Jazeera Arabic is speaking to a political activist in Tripoli, who tells us there are airstrikes "all over Tripoli".
There is death, fear - and women are crying everywhere. The strikes are concentrated against areas that sent large number of protestors to the streets and there are cars full of foreign fighters firing on people.
He says at least 250 people were killed in the past 24 hours alone and is calling for international help. He tells us Tripoli is "under siege by foreign fighters" - that water and electricity have been cut and there is a shortage of food and medical supplies. "It is a genocide," he says.
And it's not just one source in the Middle East.
Twitter is ablaze with reports that 250 or more were killed in Tripoli after warplanes, helicopters and other military forces unleashed attacks on protesters.
Several jets landed unexpectedly in Malta, reportedly piloted by defectors who refused to follow orders to bomb civilians.
