An Israeli news site called Walla, citing a report on Intelligence Online, reported that Aisha, who escaped Libya for Algeria in August, had confided to friends that Israel might be the only place in the world where she would feel safe.
Presumably, since Israel has no diplomatic ties with Libya, residing there would prevent the new regime in Tripoli from trying to extradite her and put her on trial – the fate of her brother, Saif al-Islam.
Reportedly, Aisha is fearful that her hosts in Algeria will succumb to pressure from Libya to deport her back to her native country.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Aisha’s attorney Nick Kaufman is an Israeli and a former official with Israel’s Ministry of Justice. Kaufman was retained by Aisha and her brother Saadi to determine if the brutal killing of their father constituted a “war crime.”
