‘The Islamist groups are bringing them into the camps and turning them into soldiers. They give them money, tell them about Allah and heaven and the many white virgins waiting for you there.’
Mr Gaddaf al-Dam also claims that militias loyal to ISIS in Libya are likely to be in possession of more than 6,000 barrels of uranium that was at one time under the guard of the government’s army in the desert outside the south-western town of Sabha.
ISIS are already known to have got their hands on mustard gas and deadly nerve agent sarin. Uranium ore or ‘yellowcake’ is the foundation material for making fuel for nuclear weapons. But yellowcake would require ‘extensive processing’ before it could be used for weapons purposes.
Gaddaf al-Dam sier at mange libyere angrer på revolusjonen og vil ønske dem velkommen tilbake. Han sier at hans avdøde fetter Gaddafi «made mistakes» men insisterer på at Libya nå er tusen gang verre.
‘We have to be part of the solution. People want us back’, he said.
‘In Libya the social bond is bigger than the political. And we were not a political party we were a social structure, the biggest tribe.’
The pro-Gaddafis represent two million people, one third of the population, he claims.
Gaddaf al-Dams allierte håper han vil bli den neste presidenten i Libya. Han vil ha en fredsforhandlingskonferanse som også skal ha plass til islamister og jihadister fra IS.
«Let the mafia sit together», he said.
