Has Libya been called a different name?



The ancient name Libya originally denoted the whole of North Africa west of the Nile and all the way to the Atlantic coast. And then the Greeks used it to refer to the whole of Africa, before it was named Africa by the Romans.

However, the name Libya came to be used for the political country we know now around 1934 by the Italians.

Then on the 24th of December 1951 Libya was declared as the United Kingdom of Libya by the British, who installed king Idris.

Then on the 1st of September 1969 Colonel Mua'mmar al-Qaddafi renamed,

first: Aljamhouriyah Alarabiyyah Allibiyyah (Libyan Arab Republic),

then: the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya - which is still current.

The name Jamahiriya is also spelt as Jamahiriyyah, Jamahiria, or Aljamahiria.

These are the the main four names that are known to have been used for Libya.

Why did the US declare war on Libya?

The United States hasn't declared war on anyone since December 8, 1941. All the armed conflicts since then have not been officially "wars", although you're just as dead in a "police action" or "counterinsurgency mission" or "humanitarian operation" or "kinetic military activity" as you would be in a declared war.

The Unite Nations declared a "no-fly zone" over Libya to prevent the air forces from attacking rebels. This may or may not have been a good idea. The air forces of the USA, Britain, and France have fired missiles at anti-aircraft sites and have shot down Libyan combat aircraft.

Arabic is the official language. Berber, Italian and English are understood in all the big cities.

The main language used in both written and spoken expression in Libya is Arabic.

Arabic, Italian and English are all widely understood in Libya's major cities.

Answer

The main language spoken in Libya is Arabic, which is also the official language. Tamazight (i.e. Berber languages), which do not have official status, are spoken by Libyan Berbers. Berber speakers live above all in the Jebel Nafusa region (Tripolitania), the town of Zuwara on the coast, and the city-oases of Ghadames, Ghat and Awjila. In addition, Tuaregs speak Tamahaq, the only known Northern Tamasheq language. Italian and English are sometimes spoken in the big cities, although Italian speakers are mainly among the older generation.

Answer

The official language of Libya is Arabic, but many of the people speak English as a second language. Some older people still speak Italian. Some people (about 4%) also speak various Berber dialects, although Muammar al-Gaddafi, the dictator of Libya from 1969 to 2011, persecuted people who used the Berber languages.
