They did confide in Islam, and that conspiracy and betrayal was carried out by the ousted "Muslim" leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, a Sunni who is responsible for atrocities toward fellow Muslims. In fact, the International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants in June 2011 for Gaddafi, his son Saif al-Islam, and his brother-in-law Abdullah al-Senussi for crimes against humanity.
This is the same Islamic leader who has allowed Libya to become a transit and destination country for men and women from sub-Saharan Africa and Asia used for trafficking purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. This is the same Libya that in 2007, Iran and Libya signed cooperation agreements in economic and cultural arenas. They also established joint investment funds to develop opportunities throughout Africa as well as Latin America. And it was in January 2010 that Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki visited Tripoli to discuss a “new chapter” in Iran-Libya economic relations.
So, Khamenei supports the creation of a new Islamic civilization without Western influence, and he also supports Arab uprisings such as the one that occurred in Libya, and he supported the Gaddafi regime. In other words, support a vicious dictator; support his removal from power and elimination, then support another leader who takes his place with the same religious ideology. Western influence is not the problem. The problem is the unstable and nonsensical approach of Islamic leaders like Khamenei. Maybe adopting a less Islamic approach to govern Libya will produce a nation that can transform itself from 42 years of suppressive Islamic rule.
