25.000 Jews lived in Libya in the 1930-ties, many of them were slaughtered. Many years ago, the last Jew left Libya for Israel or Italy.
During the 1930s about 25,000 Jews lived in Libya but their number dwindled dramatically due to persecution by Italy and Germany during World War II and a series of state-sponsored pogroms after Libya became independent. The last Jew in Libya immigrated to Italy several years ago.
In Israel, where according to some estimates there are up to 100,000 Jews of Libyan descent, news of the uprising caught many off guard.

Some weeks ago I meet a young Jewish lady who is of Libyan origin.
She told me that the genocide of Jews in Fascist controlled Libya is almost forgotten. Her mother lost her entire family.
God of the Bible has not forgotten. Inside the mind of the mad ruler of Libya, there is neither soundness, nor reason. The blood of the Jews slaughtered has given God the reason to cripple the dictator. Colonel Gaddafi is one of the most mad World leader of our time.
Praise Jesus the Messiah who holds the key to the eternity of this man. May he repent, and be found in the Kingdom of Heaven.
The ultimate forgiveness found on Earth, is Messianic Jews who have forgiven the Nazi-butchers who slaughtered all their closest relatives. Only by the strength that comes from Jesus the Messiah, such forgiveness is possible.
The Jewish lady of Libyan origin Jesus brought in front of me, accepted a New Testament in Hebrew.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
