Prominent Islamic scholar Al-Omrani kidnapped and murdered in Tripoli Libya
Sheikh Nadir Al-Omrani, was kidnapped on October 6. On a video made by Tripoli's Criminal Investigation Board (CIB) a man named Haitham Al-Zintani is shown confessing his role in the abduction and murder of Al-Omrani.
|An article in the Libya Observer on the October 6 abduction claims that two cars intercepted Al-Omrani as he was on his way to morning prayer in an area of Tripoli. Omrani is an Islamic scholar and member of the Council of Researches and Islamic Studies at the Libyan Fatwa House in Tripoli. He is an associate of the Grand Mufti of Libya Sadiq al-Ghariani. Al Ghariani is a strong opponent of Khalifa Haftar the commander of the Libyan National Army(GNA) of the House of Representatives(HoR) government. However, he is also opposed to the UN-backed Government of National Accord(GNA). Abdullah al-Jaadi of the Council of Researches said that two groups could benefit from the abduction of the Sheikh, the Islamic State or the Dignity Operation of Khalifa Hafar in Tripoli.|
A cornerstone of Madkhalist discourse is unquestioning loyalty to governments, even those that use extreme and unjustified violence against their subjects. Unlike other Islamist groups which often oppose dictatorial government in the Middle East, the Madkhalist movement is openly supportive of such regimes. Madkhalists argue that the governments of Arab countries rule by divine right, otherwise God would not have allowed them to take power..Madkhali is now quite old. I enclose a video describing him attending a prayer at a mosque in Saudi Arabia.
