Recollections of My Life: Col. Mu'ummar Qaddafi, The Leader of the Revolution. April 5, 2011.
In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful...
For 40 years, or was it longer, I can't remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools, and when they were hungry, I gave them food. I even made Benghazi into farmland from the desert, I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Reagan, when he killed my adopted orphaned daughter, he was trying to kill me, instead he killed that poor innocent child. Then I helped my brothers and sisters from Africa with money for the African Union.
I did all I could to help people understand the concept of real democracy, where people's committees ran our country. But that was never enough, as some told me, even people who had 10 room homes, new suits and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish as they were they wanted more. They told Americans and other visitors, that they needed "democracy" and "freedom" never realizing it was a cut throat system, where the biggest dog eats the rest, but they were enchanted with those words, never realizing that in America, there was no free medicine, no free hospitals, no free housing, no free education and no free food, except when people had to beg or go to long lines to get soup.
No, no matter what I did, it was never enough for some, but for others, they knew I was the son of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we've had since Salah-al-Deen, when he claimed the Suez Canal for his people, as I claimed Libya, for my people, it was his footsteps I tried to follow, to keep my people free from colonial domination - from thieves who would steal from us.
Now, I am under attack by the biggest force in military history, my little African son, Obama wants to kill me, to take away the freedom of our country, to take away our free housing, our free medicine, our free education, our free food, and replace it with American style thievery, called "capitalism," but all of us in the Third World know what that means, it means corporations run the countries, run the world, and the people suffer. So, there is no alternative for me, I must make my stand, and if Allah wishes, I shall die by following His path, the path that has made our country rich with farmland, with food and health, and even allowed us to help our African and Arab brothers and sisters to work here with us, in the Libyan Jamahiriya.
I do not wish to die, but if it comes to that, to save this land, my people, all the thousands who are all my children, then so be it.
Let this testament be my voice to the world, that I stood up to crusader attacks of NATO, stood up to cruelty, stood up to betrayal, stood up to the West and its colonialist ambitions, and that I stood with my African brothers, my true Arab and Muslim brothers, as a beacon of light. When others were building castles, I lived in a modest house, and in a tent. I never forgot my youth in Sirte, I did not spend our national treasury foolishly, and like Salah-al-Deen, our great Muslim leader, who rescued Jerusalem for Islam, I took little for myself...
In the West, some have called me "mad", "crazy", but they know the truth yet continue to lie, they know that our land is independent and free, not in the colonial grip, that my vision, my path, is, and has been clear and for my people and that I will fight to my last breath to keep us free, may Allah almighty help us to remain faithful and free.

The Most Important Moral Lesson
of the 21st Century Is Known by Few!
By J. Speer-Williams
The non-reporting of this story is a prime example of the deception designed to darken our souls with apathy and ignorance an arrogant ignorance at that.
Once Upon a Time
Not so long ago, in a far away land there lived a benign ruler of a diverse people, a people who had little history of being a territorially distinct nation. For many of the people in this country, their nation-state allegiances ended at the boundaries of their particular tribe.
The kindly ruler’s problems were exacerbated by the sheer size of his country a whopping 1,760,000 square kilometers and its disparate and aggressively autonomous tribal groupings were of no help either. How could anyone form these huge cultural differences into one cohesive nation?
In this hot dry land of mostly desert waste was the additional problem of food, which was always at a premium. More important yet was water, which was as valuable as gold.
How could the head of such a country become a benign ruler of a people who had no sense of national unity and no willingness to come together as one people, one nation?
It is said that when the right man meets the right opportunity, miracles will occur.
Such a man appeared: his name was Muammar Gaddafi.
The opportunity was oil lots of it.
The country? It was Libya, in northern Africa on the Mediterranean Sea.
If anyone knows of a national leader who shared the wealth of his country’s resources with the people of his nation more than Colonial Gaddafi did, please tell me who that man is or was.
For years, the banker owned and controlled press demonized Muammar Gaddafi; but what he accomplished for his people during that time period seems to be that of storybook legend.
It has been said, that Colonel Gaddafi was never happier than when he was in the desert, amongst his people, and was always traveling with his Bedouin tent. He was truly a man of his people.
And by operating his country outside the tight financial orbit controlled and owned by the pathological and morbid International Banking and Monetary Cartel, Gaddafi made his country and its people the richest in Africa. As a result, however, he made some very powerful enemies enemies who will not tolerate any nation to stand on its own and be economically independent.
It was, however, his plan to exchange his nation's oil for gold (or a gold-backed currency), instead of the inflated US reserve currency that probably prompted his brutal killing.
Such men as Muammar Gaddafi only come our way once in a century, proof of which is how he stood up to the most potent, anti-life power on earth.
But in time, the wolves circled and eliminated him, then blackened his name in history.
This short piece is my humble effort to give a great man a better eulogy.
Gaddafi's government had its own wholly-owned central bank that issued loans to its people free of interest, as riba (usury) was not permitted in Libya at that time. This was, of course, serious sacrilege to the usurers of Earth and it peoples.
Beyond the nomadic Bedouin and Tuareg tribes, most Libyan families owned both a house and a car. Again, Colonel Gaddafi had to be eliminated as the banking cartel considers middle classes anywhere as threats to their power.
Before the fifty-plus daily US/NATO bombings of Libya, and its defenseless civilian populations began, Muammar Gaddafi's government gave everyone free healthcare and education. Libyans enjoyed a literacy rate of over eighty percent.
Literacy and an education that teaches critical thinking was also a threat to the power structure. Had Colonel Gaddafi followed the American model of governmentally forced stimulus-response education, he might have bought himself a few more years of life.
Before the bombings, largely of American origin, life expectancy in Libya was seventy-five years, the highest in Africa, and about ten percent above the world average.
Preceding the US-led air attacks, there was little to no unemployment in Libya.
Note: The United States of America has long been under the heavy control of the International Banking/Monetary Cartel; and as a result, today, we have, at least, 92 million unemployed citizens.
One of the biggest lies ever promoted by the corporate press is "War is good for the economy."
War destroys economies due to the extensive debt-based usury lending involved. Strong economies are made by producing in abundance needed and wanted goods and services that are sold at home and around the world.
Production, not destruction, builds a healthy economy.
Libya was a nation that had the highest gross domestic product in Africa, with less than five percent of its population classified as poor.
Libya, a hot, dry, dusty country, long suffered with a lack of clean water. Under the leadership of Muammar Gaddafi, however, the world’s largest infrastructure project was completed. It was a man-made, underground river that provided clean drinking water to seventy percent of the Libyan people, and held the potential of turning vast wastelands into farmlands that is, until US/NATO bombs destroyed its pumping stations, thus destroying the entire project.
In 1991, at the gala opening of the Man-made River Project, the good Colonel Gaddafi spoke to the invited dignitaries and assembled crowd:
"After this achievement, American threats against Libya will double. The United States will make excuses [but] the real reason is to stop this achievement, to keep the people of Libya oppressed."
The Colonel's words were prophetic.
After American super bombers laid waste to Libya's water and electricity, the bombers destroyed the country’s main food supply.
For many decades, beginning in the summer, thousands of camels made a three-month journey from the grass- lands of Libya to metropolitan markets.
Amid the horrifying wailing and whimpering from thousands of camels and herdsmen being mindlessly and thoroughly slaughtered, the US/NATO bombs fell until animal and human flesh were ready to rot in the hot Libyan deserts.
For months and years the American mainstream media had demonized Muammar Gaddafi, often saying the goal was to bring democracy to Libya by removing their dictator.
So how did the US government justify the barbarity of butchering thousands of camels, while people were starving all over the rest of Africa?
Perhaps you heard the absurd answer from your own television set:
The camels were carrying weaponry to support those loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.Sadly many Americans were happy with that answer never realizing that certainly, during the dark of nights, Libyan troops could have quickly transported their weapons all over their country in a matter of days, not months.
Death and destruction of all life forms are the hallmarks of the military forces controlled by the foreign Banking and Monetary Cartel.
The awful destruction of the once free and independent Libya should serve us as a moral lesson, representative of our atrocities in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, where hundreds of millions of people have been killed, injured, or made homeless in a radioactive hotbed of chaotic waste, with no known way of cleaning it up.
For no military tactical or strategic reasons, depleting uranium (DU) has been employed in all of our bombings in the Middle East.
But still, the Western press calls our insane international crimes against humanity humanitarian interventions.
I now ask my brothers and sisters in America and Europe to join with me in a prayer that the US/NATO axis of evil destruction desist from any more such humanitarian interventions.
