Isi artikelSomething is out of kilter with Muammar Qaddafi's claims that Libya's revolution is an al-Qaeda plot. These jihadis enthusiastically back the NATO-led bombing campaign. Not since Western governments first armed the anti-Soviet mujahideen in the 1980s have Western and jihadi groups seemed so aligned. To a man, they proclaim their differences from al-Qaeda, insisting that from the first they have waged a local struggle against a tyrannical ruler, not a global struggle targeting the West. In the mid-1990s they formed the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which for five years waged a guerrilla war in the hills above Darna, a coastal town north-east of Benghazi. Though many fled to Afghanistan after Colonel Qaddafi's counter-insurgency, most kept their distance from al-Qaeda. In Darna, councillors struggle to explain why the town has sent so many jihadists to foreign wars. The city prided itself on its reputation as an intellectual hub, before the colonel smothered Libya's chattering classes.
