In Libya, A Father And Son’s Brief War
Mabruk immigrated to the U.S. when he was a teenager. He then married and raised his children in Pennsylvania.
But outrage over what was happening in Libya drew him back to his home country. And so he took his middle son, 21-year-old Malik, to fight in the western mountains.
They had only a few weeks of training when they joined other rebels to take the town of Bir al-Ghanem from Gadhafi loyalists this past weekend.
It was their first battle — and their last. Mabruk and Malik did not survive it.
God bless them both.
