Name The term ''Berber'' comes from the el, βάρβαρος ( ) meaning 'barbarian'. The Romans also used the word to refer to their neighbours to the north, in Germania (roughly the area that is Germany today), as well as to Celts, Iberians, Gauls, Goths, and Thracians. Among the oldest written attestations of the word ''Berber'' is its use as an ethnonym in a document from the 1st century AD ''Periplus of the Erythraean Sea''.

Justice And Construction Party
The Justice and Construction Party (JCP) or Justice and Development Party ( ar, حزب العدالة والبناء, ') is a political party in Libya associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. It was officially founded on 3 March 2012 in Tripoli. Emad al-Banani of Misrata is the head of the party, and Mohamed Gaair is its Spokesperson, spokesman. While it finished second in the election of 2014, it is believed to have attracted enough independents to have become the majority, and infighting in the National Forces Alliance has allowed the Brotherhood's political arm to gradually consolidate control over Libya. The party backed the election of Nouri Abusahmain, a Berbers, Berber and moderate Islamist, over the secular candidates, who were defeated. This gave the Brotherhood a strong position so that once Ali Zeidan was ousted from politics over his mishandling of ''MV Morning Glory, Morning Glory'' oil shipments, the Brotherhood had a speaker-president, Abusahmain, with so much auth ...
