"Please UN, Save Libya"

Moammar Gadhafi
"Look Europe, look America, here is Moammar Gadhafi! Look you Arabs, look at the Libyan people. Here Moammar Gadhafi is among the crowds, among the youth. These are the Libyan people! This is the fruit of the revolution. The youth are enthusiastic. They want the revolution. They want dignity and glory.

"You must dance, sing, and prepare yourself ... this spirit you have is stronger than any other attempt by the foreigners and the enemies to destroy us.

"Feel at ease in the squares and the streets. Live the life of dignity. Moammar Gadhafi is one of you. Dance, sing, rejoice!" Moammar Gadhafi, King of Kings

"After the Friday prayers, the youth came out into the street and shouted, 'Down with Gadhafi, long live Libya'. The security forces met us with gunfire and tear gas."

"We're getting accounts from people coming over that the journey is terrifying, that they're being harassed on the way, they are being robbed of all their possessions, they're coming with just the clothes off their backs. Libyans in particular are being hindered, particularly if you are coming from further inside the country." UNHCR spokeswoman Melissa Fleming

"They are gathering all the bodies and they are taking them to the desert or somewhere. No one knows where are the bodies of the victims.
"Gadhafi has the choice between being killed or commit suicide. He might seek to send some of his family members abroad but I believe he prefers to die in Libya because of his narcissistic character - he wants to act like a hero.
"Send a clear message. Otherwise I think he will continue his killings and today you will have thousands of people killed in Tripoli. It is time to stop this." Ibrahim Dabbashi, Libyan deputy UN ambassador.
"`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
