The deck was stacked in Libya for the victory of Mahmud Jibril. His coalition comprised more than 60--yes, sixty--parties. 2) it is identified in the West as "liberal" and "secular" when Jibril himself--former mentor of Sayf Al-Islam Al-Qadhdhafi--specifically denied that his coalition is secular and said that one of its main planks is the commitment to Islamic law. That is being ignored in the Western press to promote the headline of "liberal victory" in Libya. 3) Who was behind the unification of the more than 60 parties? 4) the electoral law (combination of voting for parties and single candidates--to weaken the Islamists) produced the desirable outcome. 5) typical in Arab countries where elections take place, not a single report in the press about external funding. It is undemocratic to speak of external funding in Arab elections.
