Travel in Libya is dangerous as that is where War Criminal Abu Minyar (“colonel"Muammar Gaddaffi) has sent tens of thousands to death and deported the Libyan national population and stolen trillions of dinar and other currencies to support his terrorism. The slandering of Bulgarian health care workers as guilty for spreading aids/hiv is another recent fraud and heinous crime that this backwards dictator has perpetrated, and other countries should be considered instead of this brutally abused Arab/African land. ( My brother was among the 270 murdered in the Pan Am Bombing of 1988)

I do encourage travel to libya where any tourist from any nationality will meet warm-hearted hospitality and unmatch friendship.

Dear All,
I am living in Libya from last 29 years and I have seen all ups and down in this country. I have never face any inscurity or harrasment from Government, Libyan employees/ authorities etc.
The country is safe to work, travel and respect foreigners. Tell me which country does not have such incidents mentioned in your remarks and intentially provocated.Here nobody will harm you unless you provoke them.
Before commenting such things one should visit the place and see how people behave and deal with you.

I am surprised what people think about my country? We libyans always welcome foreigners and deal with them very politely.
I invite this person to come and see first what is libya and how people welcome them.
