44 NATIONS attack Mu’ammar al-Qathafi
Message from an Information Warrior, Truth Defender, Angel Supporter and Conscience Caller from the belly of the beast
Greetings to all,
Get out your handkerchiefs, some of ya’ll:
The Libyan people–the girls, boys, men, women and the tribes–are very politically astute. Remember: The literacy rate in Libya is 90%. They are absolutely clear about their history, and the significance of “The Revolution,” that is, the revolution brought by Gaddafi, who is still referred to as, “Leader of The Revolution” by the Libyan people.
They are not un-educated, un-refined tribal people who can be easily manipulated against each other from outside. This is the mistake that the France, Britain, and the U.S. either did not know, or they did know and simply didn’t care, choosing to see if they could simply bludgeon the people into submission.
They know that one-million of their people were killed by the Italians. And that fact is in their blood. It is in no way possible that they will give in to force, because, in their minds, that would be a betrayal of those Libyans who lost their lives to the Italians, as well as a betrayal to the man who brought them a progressive society, Muahmmar Gaddafi.
I’ve been trying to decide which of the two demon-inspired vicious wars have been worse, Vietnam or this Libyan war. Vietnam still comes out “on top” in the category of horrifying, genocidal oppression–a “distinction,” of course, we all hope that no country, in the future, will have the misfortune of having.
A word on the traitors: It is pure fact that, had the traitors [called “rebels”] not eagerly conspired with NATO, there would be no war at this moment. I’ve sent enough material to you for you to know what this is about: money and power. Part of the problem, as I have learned by working with people in the Jamahiriya and the mathaba that are very close to Gaddafi, is that he is too trusting.
They love him, but are frustrated that he has this habit of trusting. Everyone in Libya very well knew that Bengazi was the center of trouble for Libya. But the most that Gaddafi did was keep an eye on them. In fact, this is another proof that he has not been some “brutal dictator,” otherwise he would have emptied Bengazi of those Al-Qaeda and jihadist elements that he knew were there.
Years ago, the U.S. normalized relations with him and began calling him a “friend” of the U.S. Well, we all know what THAT means! It means nothing. You’re a friend to the U.S. for as long as you appear to be of some use. When he agreed to normalize relations, he also agreed to cease certain military development.
He was warned directly by Minister Louis Farakhan, and I remember when that happened, because I was sitting at The Final Call building when Minister Farakhan returned from Libya after having sat with Gaddafi to warn him of what was in store for him in the future, if he really believed the U.S. overtures of peace.
What most people do not understand is this: Although Gaddafi is an Arab Socialist, he does practice Islam, though not fanatically. It is instinctive, in Islam, to follow the “sunna,” or the practice of the Prophet Muhammad. During Prophet Muhammad’s battles, whenever the enemy would sue for peace, the Prophet would immediately agree, and stop battling.
His “sahaba,” i.e., companions, or followers, would become upset with him and say, “Oh Holy Prophet of Islam! You know that the enemy is suing for peace only so that they can re-group and attack us later!” But, he would ignore them.
That is what Gaddafi follows. It’s sad that his country has become attacked, in part due to his following his belief: an enemy sued for peace, and he immediately drop his defences, contrary to what Minister Farakhan had told him (Incidentally, I’m not a follower of Farakhan’s, but the man has been on target at many times throughout his leadership of the NOI).
A measure of the level of Gaddafi’s belief in religion can be seen in two incidents. During this war, the news media was trying to dig up every kind of possible dirt they could. They found nothing. In one article, they interviewed one of his Bulgarian nurses. They pressed and pressed and pressed, virtually directly asking her if he “fooled around.”
The woman actually laughed and said, “Gaddafi?! Ha! He’s a prude?” When asked, “But why does he have beautiful women as his nurses,” she answered, “for the same reason that he likes flowers and other beautiful things.”
Another incident once occurred in Italy. He was in a hotel with some aides. A group of young fashion models walked by. He had his aides stop them. He asked them to come to a “party” that he was having in the hotel later that night.
They all went to the party. When they got there, he handed each one of them a copy of the Holy Qur’an, and began reading it to them, and explaining the verses. In other words, he taught a class. They were stuck, of course, because he was a head of state and they wanted to give him that respect. But, it was not the kind of party they’d expected. During the class, he softly suggested that they consider another profession that was “more pious.” LOL!!!
Anyway, the members of the Jamahiriya–and this is just me sharing information, just ‘case I like to DO that–are frustrated with him, because of his trusting nature. But they say, “Well…we love him ANYWAY!” It’s all very fascinating to learn about this stuff. I’d known about Gaddafi many years ago, when I used to read Muhammad Speaks Newspaper, Gaddafi’s Green Book, and other information about Libya. But, I’d not been connected with the Libyan scene for decades. So, it is very interesting (though extremely sad and deeply frustrating) to be involved, and to learn.
One of the most frustrating things it the absolutely complete media blackout. We are in an information prison. It is SO astonishing. Every report sounds as if it’s written by the same individual. And you can’t get any perspective. You’re told one side of this, and that’s it.
This is truly new. It just blows me away. It’s why I, along with others, have contributed tons of work at mathaba.net. It’s fulfilling because the work is being done by Christians, Muslims, ATHEISTS, revolutionaries, etc., etc., and just people who deplore injustice. Do check out the articles at mathaba.net, and please inform people about the work there. (Register at www.mathaba.org and login to the Mathaba Committees forum if you wish to help out).
Those of you who feel this, in your heart, please continue to pray that the suffering of the Libyan people under racist, imperialist aggression will soon come to an end. Thank you.
19 SEPTEMBER 2005:
The Meeting of the Brother Leader with European & American Writers, Men of Letters &Parliamentarians Affiliated with the Global Green Auditorium
” I welcome you in Libya, and thank you for coming. I had appealed to professors in the world, and to thinkers, politicians, parliamentarians, and members of social, economic and political research centers, asking them to come to the Jamahiriya, enter the Green auditorium, learn lessons and see for themselves the applications of direct popular democracy. In fact the appeal was heeded by members of the Russian Duma, professors from Russian Universities and thinkers whom we met.
They came to the Green Auditorium, where we had a meeting like the present meeting. Now you honor us with your presence and by responding to the appeal. For which I thank you. . The fact that you have come from such remote regions indicates that you are earnest in the pursuit of knowledge and in seeking the truth.
This is required. We must seek the truth without preconceived racial, religious or other notions. It is my belief that the Green Book, which represents a guide for the struggle of peoples to achieve direct popular democracy and popular socialism the object of a preconceived racist, irrational position on the part of a number of societies which are governed by dictatorial, arbitrary governments. . Such a position is, of, course, unscientific and irrational. It is due to political reasons or disputes among states, such as antagonism to Alagathafi regarding the cause of liberation and such.
Taking a hostile position on the Third Universal Theory is the policy of rulers and governments, but you breached that embargo. Here you are in Libya and in the Green Auditorium. This is the difference between scholar and an intellectual, free of racist complexes, who comes to seek the truth and judges it subsequently, having seen it for himself and rulers who take hostile, colonialist, racist positions in total contradiction with logic, science and impartiality.
Regrettably, it is the position of arbitrary governments to prevent people from reading the Green Book. It is our belief that the contents of the Green Book will chart the definitive road for the world towards democracy and the solution of the socio-economic problem through the establishment of the direct, popular democracy of the masses, i.e. the system of the masses, and of popular socialism. However, failure to study the Green Book will cause peoples to flounder, take a long road and lose a lot of time to arrive at this solution.
They will attain this solution with the Green Book or without it, because it is inevitable. The mass opposition is becoming more broadly based and growing in magnitude. It used to be individual and natural, but has now become a broad, mass opposition. It looks like a pyramid whose base grows wider and wider until it becomes a horizontal line.
The march of the masses towards power and the elimination of oppression and exploitation will not stop halfway, but will surely reach its destination. It cannot be static, which means continuous, ceaseless movement. This is inevitable; the picture before us shows that the base of the pyramid continues to widen until the pyramid becomes a horizontal line, and then all the masses assume power, and acquire their share of wealth. The question of power and wealth is very clear before us now in the world.
The power is in the hands of the government not the people, and the people everywhere is ruled by a government. Such hateful terms as ‘the government’ and ‘the people’, the ‘governor’ and the ‘governed’ are unashamedly taking their place; there is no shame anywhere in the world. Now there is talk of the ‘governor’ and the ‘governed’ and the one who is responsible. In other words, there is one who is responsible and one who is not, and he who is not responsible is a slave.
It is well known, even in the slavery system, that a slave is not responsible, but his master is responsible. Now, there is talk of responsible officials, but who are they? They mean the rulers. Fine, are the people responsible? They say “no”; they don’t say “You are responsible,” but they say “The ruler is responsible….the one who is responsible official of this state…those who are responsible officials of that state.” However, the rest are not responsible, because they are slaves, and, indeed, when one is a slave, one is not responsible; the term “responsibility” is never ascribed to a slave, but to his master, and this is the reason behind the expression extant in the world today.
It is said “I met a number of Italian responsible officials….I met a number of Indian responsible officials….I met a number of responsible officials of this state….I met the first responsible official of this state…..I met a responsible official from that state …..I met a responsible official from the other state…” These are masters who are responsible….When someone refers to a responsible official, it means he has met one of the rulers or the prime ruler, etc. However, the others are not responsible because they are citizens, i.e. slaves, hence the expressions “responsible officials” and “responsible official”.
Someone who is responsible for managing the affairs of the slaves. They are his slaves, and he is responsible for them. This is the truth we uncover when we remove the present camouflage. The truth is that the citizens are now slaves everywhere in the world, and there is someone in charge of them, who is the government. They exchange courtesies, cables, congratulations and such, and say: ‘Government and people, ruler and ruled’ which means that the people is not the government but is governed “I thank your government and people for your warm hospitality…..I thank the government and the people for hosting the conference.”
This is an abhorrent expression, because it is an autocratic expression, because it devoid of equality and robs the people of sovereignty and dignity and ascribes everything to the government and the responsible official. You can see this being practiced without shame, as the forces ensconced on the throne of authority in the world are the forces that have the resources that enable them to be defiant and to brag and insult.
It is the dictatorial theory that is prevailing in the world now and is called modern democracy or representative democracy, but it is not democracy. It consists of politicians and businessmen who are the capitalists who own the wealth. It is this wealth that that enables then to put whoever they want in power. Therefore there is an alliance between those who have the financial power and those who have the political power, while the people are deprived of this political potential and this economic potential.
For example, they, esp. in the Western countries, speak of freedom of the press, and say that the press is free. This is deception, distortion and false. This absolutely untrue, since there is no free press and the poor cannot publish a newspaper. A newspaper is published by a corporation, and the rich own the newspapers. These newspapers are founded by this class to serve its interests. Hence, they are guided, controlled, forced to pursue a certain policy and are not free.
To be free is to follow any direction and say anything, but these papers were by certain forces to serve their interests. Therefore they are servile and in the pay of their masters. It is also said that there are elections and that the people elected representatives. This is a distortion of the truth, and the people are innocent of this. It is the corporations and the rich who create the representatives, as a poor person can’t become a member of the Congress, the Parliament or the House of Lords in any state.
A poor person can’t become a member of parliament, publish a newspaper or become a ruler. These are the monopoly of political-economic duo, the capitalists and the politicians created by the capitalists to be in their service. The politicians are ruled by the capitalists who made them; this is clear.
It is said that President So&So is supported by the oil companies, for example, which means he was made by the oil companies and became president to serve their interests. Sometimes, it is said that President So & So is against the oil companies and favors the iron and steel industry, because those companies managed to get him to the presidency to serve them.
It is then said that the oil companies are unlucky, because the winner is supported by the iron and steel companies, and sometimes the opposite is said. Any other economic activity that possesses an effective financial power can create a president, a congress, a parliament or a government biased in its favor to serve its interests. This capitalist class owns the press, which is falsely said to be free, when it is not; it is the slave of the capitalist who owns it. This press generates publicity and influences public opinion in favor of one candidate or another
In actual fact, everything they say to you and to us and to the world about there being democracies and freedoms is not true. On the contrary, all societies now, esp. Western societies, are dangerously dictatorial. Why? The current ruling parties are not real parties made up of citizens, of ordinary people. They are a political force that enjoys economic support and has all the means. They control the army, the police, the press and capital, and beyond that, they control the power of decision-making.
In other words, this is one of the most hideous dictatorships, which does not leave a breathing space for any kind of freedom. Peoples everywhere are discovering this truth year after year. One finds that those who go to the ballot boxes in the past years were seventy percent, for example, only to become fifty percent in the following year and, later, thirty percent. Nowadays, in the elections held in some states, the turnout in certain constituencies was down to three percent, and, at most, reached, ten percent. This is a rejection of the system by the ordinary citizen, because it is an arbitrary, dictatorial, useless system…
It exploits the citizen to bestow legitimacy on the dictators, the capitalists and the exploiters Thus, this is the sole function of the citizen; he is told, “Bestow legitimacy on this dictator! All we want from you to take this paper and put it here,” so that they can acquire legitimacy, because without elections no one can claim the presidency or the premiership, since he will be asked, “Who appointed you?”
Nowadays, people do not participate in appointing the president or the prime minister, but it is necessary to claim that he was elected president. So, they address the people and ask them to stand in queues on a certain date , and place the ballot papers in designated boxes, The citizen handles this paper just as he handles a piece of toilet paper which he puts in the waste basket or in the garbage after using. This is exactly how he puts this paper in this box, the garbage box or the ballot box.
Some go as if going to the market or for a walk on the beach. He is told, “There are elections today,” so he says, “Fine, we’ll kill an hour or two by taking a paper and putting it in the ballot box,” just as if he was going to the zoo, the beach or a café; that’s what it has come to.,. The majority now knows this and do not go. In the third world, it is well known that the citizen who votes has been paid the price.
If there are elections, it means votes are bought; “Take a dollar and put your ballot in the box.” It is, in other words a process of buying and selling… Someone would say to himself, “Since there are elections today, I can put a paper in the ballot box and receive a dollar in return, instead of staying at home and not getting anything.” The buying of votes is well known now. Those who do not have money cannot contest the elections.
We, the owners of companies who want this president to serve our interests, cover these costs and claim that we contributed to his campaign. It is silly for the candidate himself to come and vote for himself and says, “I have nominated myself…” This is one of the farces of the theory of representation. If the people are present why should we have representatives for them?
What is the justification for removing the people deliberately and bringing those who represent them? It is said, “Where shall we bring the people, since this hall can only accommodate a hundred people?
Since the people number a hundred million, let them elect a hundred people to represent them in this hall, because this hall is too small for all the people, and can only hold a hundred people.”
Therefore the people can meet a hundred a time until all one hundred people everywhere are covered. Why settle for this hall only? Let’s build a thousand such halls, where the people can meet in congresses and decide what they want. Then the secretaries of these congresses can meet and bring with them the decisions of these congresses, in which all the people, men and women, were represented, and agree to issue these decisions taken by the people and drafted in these meetings. Sometimes, there is confusion.
At times we would be talking with someone and refer to people’s congresses and direct popular democracy, and he says, “We have parliaments just like you.” No, I want to explain the major difference between parliaments and congresses, congresses are bodies elected by the people, while congresses are made up of the people themselves. Thus, when we speak of a parliament we mean a body elected by the people, but when we speak of a congress we mean the people, all the people. For instance, in the Jamahiry (mass) system in Libya, the people’s congresses comprise all the people, adult men and women who are legally accountable, and they are the ones who rule.
The people’s congress is like the Congress, while in a certain country there is one Congress, there are 400 Congresses in Libya, reflecting the number of the population, and all the people are present in 400 Congresses. Imagine!! In one country there is one parliament and you come to Libya and find 400 parliaments. Why is that?
Because all the people are members of these four hundred parliaments. Hence, whatever is decided is decided by the people and not by the representatives of the people. Naturally, in the name of representation, the people were separated and slowly excluded from governance and its management, toe replaced by another means which, as already indicated, is adapted by money and such.
The danger does not, in fact, lie in the exclusion of democracy inside the country, and that the regime is dictatorial and arbitrary, etc., and that the citizen does not have self-determination, but in the fact that t his clique that rules on behalf of the people, be they representatives or government, and that were made in the manner we have already explained, does not pose a threat to itself but to the world and to world peace.
The danger is that one individual can decide to declare war or peace, to destroy the world or not to destroy it, and to invade or not to invade. The danger is that these Hitler-like governments threaten us and threaten our lives. They threaten our peace and security just as Hitler posed a threat, because he had the mightiest force at the time. He was one individual governing by himself, who began with a gang, a minister of propaganda and a minister of defense, and eventually imperiled world peace and posed a real threat.
Now there are individuals who have bombs, missiles, planes and chemical and bacteriological weapons. This is very serious, because these weapons of mass destruction are controlled by a group of individuals. People everywhere demonstrated against the war. They wanted peace, not war. However, the war broke out, the forces were moved and the children died. Where is the democracy then? Don’t the people who are against the war have representatives?
If the representatives had represented the people they would have objected to the war, but they supported the rulers, therefore they do not represent the people. Hence, representation is a fraud. It has been proven that the representative does not represent the people. The representatives do not act on behalf of the people, which have been proven. In general, they are all haunted by the crisis, the crisis of governance, democracy and the economic system.
Even when you meet many presidents, they do not tell you that they are alright. They know they are experiencing a very grave crisis. They tell you,” we do not know the tools we need. Politics is in a crisis. We do not know how to relate to the citizens or how to manage our affairs. . The economy is rejected, .politics is rejected and all the current processes are rejected by the ordinary citizen. The masses express their aspirations, their desires and their views, like the “ Seattle masses”, in isolation from their representatives and their governments.
Millions, heeding no borders, march to raise their voice, stats their views and express their rejection. The rulers are being pursues everywhere by demonstrations, while the workers are organizing strikes and demanding their rights. As for the economy ,the crisis has been exacerbated and has endangered the entire capitalist system of production, which has prompted them to seek solutions to save themselves, which is, indeed, evident , What is positive is that the company that used to be owned by one person in Europe, the U.S. or Canada has now become a public company. This, as we have already stated is an inevitable solution.
What is stated in the Green Book is inevitable. Without reading the Green Book, then with the passage of time and through struggle we will arrive at this solution. On the economic front, the major capitalist companies have begun to go public in spite of them, otherwise they would face death. The workers have begun to demand their right, which means they are preventing the owner of the company from profiting at their expense, whereas he founded that company to exploit them, reap profits and accumulate capital.
This has led automatically to a solution, as the workers themselves became shareholders in the company. If you go to the stock market, you will find the shares of this company are publicly traded, the same company that used to be owned by one individual may be now owned by a million shareholders. This means that socialism is a solution that imposes itself, and it has not failed or is dying as they say. On the contrary, it is capitalism that is dying; it is dying everyday…
Holding on to it is an exercise in futility and a waste of time. It is like keeping a person on life support systems. What is the use of clinging to the life-support systems if the patient is clinically dead? This is exactly the case of capitalism and the theory of representation. Holding on to them is like keeping someone alive on life-support systems.
Now, privately held companies are beginning to become public companies, and in the final analysis, you will find that only the popular socialism, which was addressed in the second chapter of the Green Book, will prevail. However, now they call it popular capitalism as Thatcher called it, since they do not like the term “socialism”. Whether you call it popular capitalism or popular socialism does not matter. Even in Libya it is possible to speak of popular capitalism; what matters is that the people own the capital, which means socialism…
This leaves the political problem as representation of the people is still espoused. Generally speaking the political problem has not been solved yet, and the political crisis still persists. We have seen that the peoples and the parliaments that they claim were elected by the people are not on the same page. There is a grave crisis experienced by the world today, which is the crisis of Iraq.
It is a war of devastation and genocide and it is a threat to peace and a waste of the world resources, ad the oil is being burned everyday, it is a war t which the peoples rejected, and the parliaments endorsed. Then what is the use of convening another parliament for these peoples, and holding another election for such a parliament as long as the parliament does not represent the people? We should abolish the parliament and uphold the will of the people. But how do we allow the people to govern?
It is very clear that the people can govern through the people’s congresses and the people’s committees. Instead of having one Congress or one parliament, there will be a thousand congresses or a thousand parliaments accommodating all the people. The structures within we are working now are so obsolete that they can no longer accommodate the new realities. The peoples are marching towards power and want to govern.
The old structure of the government and the parliament is crumbling before this new reality. All the people will enter this structure, which is too narrow for a government and a parliament. So this structure will break up and should break up. Even the wealth was monopolized in a structure confined to a handful of capitalists. Now, all the peoples want their share of the wealth, and all will gain access to the structure, and therefore the old structure of individual capitalism will break up.
A single individual used to own a company and enlist the labor of a million workers to increase his profits by exploiting them and robbing their efforts. This structure will break up, because the million want their share in this company. All of these are practical, material proofs of the validity the Green Book theory, the third universal theory…
We are reassured to know that there is a solution set down in a book, the Green Book. If we study this book and if the people learnt it, we will arrive quickly at a solution and spare ourselves this prolonged suffering. However, if we fail to study it, we will certainly arrive at the solution prescribed by the Green Book, but through suffering, after traveling a long road and paying a heavy price. Now the U.N. Security Council, whose meetings used to be open only to 15 members, finds itself compelled to allow states non-members to attend the debates.
The most recent recommendation was made this month at a summit meeting of the U.N. General Assembly. Naturally, they did not agree to expand the Security Council with the addition of new members, and maintained its present size, but they recommended that the Security Council continue to allow the participation of the largest possible number of non-member states in its meetings, because the world will no longer allow 15 members to decide its fate, and war and peace,… They said,” This is true.
We will allow a number of non-member states to speak in every meeting… This shows that even the old structure of the Security Council is beginning to break up now, because everyone wants to gain access to this structure, and this is only the beginning. A hall like this can only accommodate on hundred, but there are a thousand people outside who want to come in. . . . Fine, we will let in ten of you, then twenty, then thirty, because we want to solve the problem of those who are outside the hall. For if they came in they would smash the premises, break the windows, and cause such confusion that we would not be able to work.
Once the one thousand come in and destroy the hall, a new hall will be built to accommodate a thousand. This is what is happening, which means that the old structures will crumble before the new challenges posed by the masses.
Colonial Gadhafi asked Libyan women not to marry defeated Arab men. “My father is right. I am disappointed in the Arabs. Were not they the first to impose sanctions on my country? They did not support us in the difficult times. As an optimist, I hope that the Arab world will evolve and will follow ‘The Guide’ in the path of harmony that he has opened-up….other governments should make use of his wisdom….”
When questioned as to the relationship with her father: “he spends alot of time with us. My relationship with him is strange.Sometimes I feel it is the relationship between governor and governed, sometimes it is that of a generous friend In all cases it is the best remedy for my sorrows and meloncholy….”
|The Leader of the Revolution Speaks to the Supreme Council of Judicial Bodies and to the Chiefs of Judicial Bodie|
In his meeting with the members of the Supreme Council of Judicial Bodies in the Great Jamahiriya, the leader of the revolution made an important speech. In it, he called upon the Libyan people to annul all exceptional courts like the Special People’s Court. He also appealed to the people to abrogate the penal laws enacted by the Revolutionary Command Council before the establishment of the sovereignty of the Masses, and to return to the normal penal code and procedure.
He also demanded that a definitive investigation in the case of the Abi Selim Prison be expeditiously carried out. He appealed for the cessation of any action such as arrest without warrant or extra-judicial punishment, should they exist.
He said that no detainee or prisoner should be denied the right to see his family or meet with his attorney. He/she must have the right to choose his own counsel from outside the ranks of the People’s Counsel. Prisoners must continue to have the right to family visits outside prison on special social occasions.
The Leader of the Revolution appealed to the Libyan people to swiftly ratify the anti-torture conventions. He strongly deplored the conduct of governments that have not done so. He condemned the countries that oppress detainees and those that allow such acts to be conducted, by their police forces or prison authorities, with impunity.
The Leader expressed his heartfelt regret that some governments carry out such acts against their own citizens and against foreigners alike. That sad fact was stressed in the reports of Amnesty International that he put before those present in the meeting. He called upon the Popular Justice Committees in Libya to cooperate with Amnesty International and other human rights organizations. He commended the efforts made by those organizations. He demanded that Libya, by virtue of being the first state of the masses in the whole world, play a pioneering role on the world level in the defense of human rights.
The following was mentioned in his speech:
In the name of God.
In meeting with this elite group of jurists in the Jamahiriya, my purpose was to address certain subjects that need reflection. In the early days of the revolution, certain legislation was made in response to the needs of that stage. All politicians and jurists are aware that a revolution must be accompanied by certain harsh measures. Those measures must be time-bound and of exceptional nature, like wartime legislation. Such measures cannot be permanent or else they would constitute a denial of justice. They must be reconsidered. It was our hope that Libya with its revolution would become a model of freedom, popular democracy, and the state free from oppression and injustice. However, with the measures I mentioned above, Libya became another conventional state, even a dictatorial or police state. This is deeply regrettable. We are not like that nor do we want to be like that.
It so happens that we are in the Third World, in a region that is branded as backward. It was difficult for the world to distinguish between what happened here and any other Coup d’état that took place in Sudan, Iraq, Mali, Indonesia, or Argentina. All the events of the last year were purely superficial. They brought all sorts of oppression and injustice. This is perfectly normal since military generals carry out this kind of action in those countries. For us in Libya, it would be unfair to have us in this list. We are not generals who led a Coup. We led a popular revolution for which we used the army. This means we had a doctrine and an ideology. The Libyan revolution was a correction of the events in the Third World. Yes there was a military action accompanied by some injustice. Nevertheless at a very early stage, the power was returned to the people. The popular committees were established and they put before the peoples’ congresses their draft laws and policies. We, the leaders of the revolution, are witnessing the people creating their own committees and entities that are conducting the business of the society of the masses. There is no way for us to enact a law that runs counter to the will of the people. But some of the measures that were supposed to be temporary, somehow, continued to live with us. For example, the People’s Court was established at the beginning of the revolution. In each and every Third World country, when there is a revolution or a Coup, they establish a court named the “Revolution Court”. Its judges are military men and generals. That was the case in Syria, Iraq, and even in Egypt at the beginning of its revolution. For us, even the name would not stand. As we said, our movement was a correction of all the events that happened in other Third World countries. We called it the “People’s Court” because the Revolution was a People’s Revolution. The People’s Court was made up of a military man, a member of the police, a member of the clergy, and the civilian man of law. We could have composed it of young officers like all such courts in the Third World. But its composition was meant to ensure that it was a People’s Court. Anyway, this court continued with us until the year 2000. This should not have happened. Why should we have a special court when we are not in a state of war, anarchy, or upheaval? Human rights organizations and Amnesty International address this question and justifiably. The statute of the court was amended four times. This is proof that it is no longer fit for the new stage.
The People’s Court was supposed to try the officials of the monarchy who exercised power before the revolution. After their trial, the court should have ceased to exist. Unfortunately, this was not the case. We started amending it and giving it additional powers. I was amazed to see that someone who sold his farm was referred to the People’s Court. Why? Because his farm was given to him by the state and selling it was a violation of the law. Another person slammed his car into a lamp post, and he too was referred to the People’s Court! Supposedly because the lamp post is public property and running into it is a violation of the law. This is a farce. It is laughable. Could the People’s Court be asked to look into such petty things? Its statute was modified four times in order for it to be able to deal with these new cases that are not within its jurisdiction. My hope is that you would draft a law to put before the popular conference in order to put an end to the existence of the People’s Court. Its mandate and jurisdiction should be transferred to regular courts.
We are not the United States. They say they were subjected to a terrorist attack. They enacted special laws, created special courts, reestablished a ministry of the interior, they have Guantánamo and extra judicial measures. They say: “we are at a world war against terrorism; therefore, we must have special measures”. We are not like America. We are not at war. We don’t need special measures to face an outside enemy or to win a war. Why should we have these special measures in a calm and stable country like ours? There is no power struggle in our country. Power is in the hand of the people. Our men and women make the laws, make the decisions, determine the policy of the country, and set its budget. We have no civil war. We have no external war. We have no power struggle. Our society is homogeneous linguistically, religiously, and ethnically. It is a blessing from God that we have such a calm, stable, and content society. Why should we resort to exceptional measures? Because China did? Because Iraq did? Because Syria did? Because I don’t know who did? They have their problems. The US did that, and so did Britain because they are in a state of war. They are scared and terrified. Their fear makes them overreact to the smallest of emergencies and resort to exceptional measure. We don’t have that. Even if America enacts all sorts of exceptional measures, we will not do the same. Every society has its own circumstances. We are a coherent, stable, and calm society that has absolutely no problems. Why should we resort to exceptional measures? Just by way of imitation? Long ago people joked that Arab communists carried their umbrellas in Aden when it snowed in Moscow. Because communists mimicked what happened in Russia, even if they had never seen snow in their lives!
What I need to say is that the People’s Court is no longer necessary. It’s supposed to have ended. We appreciate the efforts of its founders, and its efforts to hold to account those who exploited the Libyan people from October 1951to 1969. We should start a normal stage with regular procedures. In 1969, the Revolutionary Command Council adopted the law on the protection of the revolution. That was justifiable at that time. Today, after the establishment of the people’s power, we can no longer talk about the defense of the revolution. We could only talk about the protection of the power of the people and the maintenance of the system of the masses which constitutes the basis of our state. The law was necessary at the time of its adoption. Things were fluid and unpredictable. There used to be five American military bases and a number of British ones. Cyrenaica was completely occupied by the British. There were twenty thousand Italian settlers who controlled all economic activity in Libya. The remnants of the old regime were still active inside and outside the country. It was possible for all those to conspire against the revolution. Therefore it was necessary to adopt a law on the protection of the revolution that provides for severe punishments for any attempts against it. After a while Libya achieved independence and ended the military, economic, and settler colonialism. The revolutionary command council ceased to exist. It was replaced by the people’s power. The republic was replaced by the Jamahiriya. There is no longer a justification for the existence of that law or for us to continue to invoke it. There are other laws that should be sufficient to protect our system of popular direct democracy without resort to any special or exceptional measures.
The establishment of the people’s court led to the establishment of the office of the special prosecutor for the security of the revolution. Now we have regular court system and regular offices of prosecutors so why should we need to continue to have that special office? It would have been possible at the time of the revolution, for us not to enact any special laws or provide for any special punishments. It could have been assumed that the old laws came to an end with the beginning of the revolutionary era. We could have run the country without those laws. However, I thought it was necessary for us to enact a law to protect the revolution and a new status. By their very nature, exceptional measures create fear and result in oppression. All Third World countries that established special courts, military courts, and adopted oppressive laws were not spared conflicts and upheaval. They never achieved stability. Those laws did not provide the solution. The real solution lies in a change in the nature of the people and the society. Normally, in every society there is a struggle for power, either among individuals, political parties, tribes, families, or social classes. The solution cannot be found in laws. To provide a radical solution for the problem, there is a need to end the power struggle. Not to frighten those who struggle for it. The struggle for power comes to an end when all the people exercise power, like the situation in Libya now. All adult Libyan men and woman, exercise power, and therefore there is no struggle for it. Anyone with an opinion can express it in the People’s Congresses and try to persuade others of it. The Office of the Special Prosecutor is no longer necessary.
There is another law that criminalizes partisanship. There is no objection to the idea itself. My personal objection is to the severe punishments included in it. There is also the fact that with the establishment of the power of the people no such act could take place. If somebody suggests that a political party be established, what would be the use of it? Nobody will join it in a country where the people run their own affairs in direct democracy. Parties and partisanship are completely outdated. They belong in museums. This is the era of the masses. The world is full of parties that have never solved the problems of their societies. If I establish a party, people would think that it is simply lust for power and wealth. People will ask themselves if they should vote for us so that we can rule them and monopolize power and wealth. The ruling party in any country benefits only its members. Even within the party itself, the members charge its central committee of usurping the power of the party and monopolizing its money and that is shows total disregard to the members of the party. Then the central committee itself accuses the politburo of dictatorship and monopoly. So in the final analysis the party is made up of no more than five people who are the members of the politburo. Even the politburo itself usually accuses the chairman of the party of dictatorship and of showing no regard to the politburo. This is what happened with Brezhnev, Gorbachev and Suharto. So what parties are they talking about?
The parties do nothing. When people have grievances, they take to the street and the members of the parties are nowhere to be found. People opposed to the war in Iraq, the unemployed, and the poor go out on the street to demonstrate. Violence spreads, and the parties do nothing. People will not establish a party in this day and age. Our people exercise power by themselves. Why should they hand over their power to a party or to a group of people to control them? Take the example of Lebanon. It is made up of many communities. Its political system is sectarian. The president must be Christian and the Prime Minister must be a Sunni Muslim. And the minister of the interior must be a Druze. In the seventies or the eighties a general whose name I don’t remember moved the army, went to the radio station, and broadcast a statement saying that the army has seized power in Lebanon. But nothing changed the following morning. The parliament remained with its sectarian composition unchanged. The general was not even tried. They just asked him what you think you’re doing. The communal and sectarian system is the basis of the government. Can you turn a Christian into a Muslim or a Muslim into a Christian? Nobody in Lebanon could possibly think of a military Coup because all communities are represented in the parliament and in the cabinet. Here we have our People’s Congresses and popular committees. What do we do with parties? They have no role in our system. Therefore, there is no need to give any importance to partisanship. It could be resisted or we could impose severe punishments for it. But in fact, partisanship is over in the whole world. This old model of political parties can no longer express the new reality. All old models like the rule of an individual, a party, or a family, have come to and end. We should not be talking about parties but rather about securing the fabric of the social institutions. All actions, conduct, and behavior must make sure that this fabric is unharmed. This is the very basis of all the constitutions of the world including those that claim to be democratic. Look at the French constitution for instance. It talks about the rights of the human being and the citizen. In order for these rights to be respected, the constitution must be preserved. All actions of the French citizens must not run counter to the constitution. If you infringe the constitution, you are in a collision course with the society and the whole establishment, you can be tried, imprisoned, and be faced with severe punishments. Like they say, the constitution must be preserved; we say that the purpose of all actions must be the protection of the Jamahiriya, the system of the masses and the power of the people. No one is allowed to infringe upon the social establishment. There is also the principle of the people’s sovereignty. That sovereignty is inherent in the people and nobody can exercise without their consent. No one can claim sovereignty for themselves. All the constitutions of the world state that sovereignty belongs to the people and it is exercised through their representatives. Why should it be exercised through representatives? The people can exercise their sovereignty directly. Why should they be denied that right in favor of a small group of representatives? In our system this is a sacrosanct principle. Anyone who challenges it challenges the very fabric of our society and does harm to our social institutions. Therefore, they must be punished to the full extent of the law. Everywhere in the world, people have the freedom to do what they wish, without doing harm to the society. The same applies here. If one attacks the Jamahiriya and the power of the people, he is attacking the whole social institution. This is an indisputable fact. The democratic constitution of the federal republic of Germany, states the Germans have the right of assembly, without need for prior notification, provided it is calm and unarmed. Public assembly requires prior notification. This clearly means that certain actions can only be carried out in accordance with the law in Germany, and other democratic countries. Same applies in France. No anti-republican group would be allowed to organize there. Now In certain Muslim countries, some people start organizing and following certain rituals. This runs counter to the law. They claim that their brand of Islam is better than ours. They change even the rules of prayer. They do not pray at home or in the mosque. They go and pray in public squares. This is undermining the whole religious system of the society. There is no provision in Islam for adopting this unusual form of prayer. If somebody wishes to fast for 40 days, it’s his choice. Nobody will prevent him from doing so or fasting his whole life if he so wishes. But, to start a party or an organization, and to start advocating this idea is an attack on the foundations of religion. It is unacceptable anywhere in the world. Not in France, not in Switzerland, and definitely not in Libya. French law states that it is forbidden to display religious symbols in public schools; no cross, no Star of David, and no Muslim head cover. They say you are free to exercise your faith at home or in a house of worship. It is not acceptable to create distinction among communities in the same society. You must be seen to be French only not followers of one Religion or the other. France is not a mosque or a Church. France is a secular state. When asked why the head cover was banned, the answer was: “At school, you must be seen only as a teacher. To be seen as a follower of a certain religion could put you against the followers of another religion.” In public institutions people must be seen as French, they must keep their faith to themselves, and exercise it in houses of worship. Otherwise, the country will be divided on religious basis. For us in Libya, we are all Sunni Muslims. Why should anybody adopt new rituals, new thought, or new distinguishing marks? This is unacceptable, it undermines the whole society. Anyone can stand on a street corner and preach good behavior and pious conduct. But what is the purpose of gathering a secret underground group? Is it to undermine the whole society? This is totally unacceptable, everywhere in the world.
Under the constitution, Germans have the right to form organizations. It also provides for a prohibition of organizations whose purposes are unlawful or against the system of government or destroys the harmony of the society. This is included in the German constitution. Can anyone accuse Germany of being an authoritarian or dictatorial state? There is a consensus on the German system of government and its institutions. No one is allowed to attempt to undermine them. If you call for the establishment of revolutionary committees to rule Germany or to hand over the power to the people, you are undermining the society and committing an unlawful act. There is another article that is very clear. Anyone who abuses the freedom of expression with the purpose of undermining the basic democratic system shall be stripped of those fundamental rights. Even a phone call, if used to jeopardize what they consider a free democratic system, will lead to legal accountability and a denial of constitutional rights. What I mean to say is even in the countries that are considered modern and democratic; there are laws to protect the social institutions and the fabric of the society. A society is like a structure built on pillars. No one has the right to tear down one of the pillars because that will bring down the whole structure. No pretext, religious, political, economic or ideological would permit tampering with the basic structure of the institution. In Germany, the confidentiality of contacts, correspondence and phone calls is guaranteed. However, if any of them is used to fight against the basic free democratic system, that guarantee is annulled. One is stripped of those fundamental rights. That means that his phone is tapped. You could use your phone for any purpose you like; harass people, use foul language or even steal. But if you attack the social institutions, the right to privacy is annulled. Even your pets will be tapped. The right to property is also conditional upon respect for the basic free democratic system. If your house, store, vehicle or farm is used for the purpose of harming the social institution or the system of government, you would lose it. In the Western countries suspects have an electronic homing device implanted in their bodies. They are under surveillance every minute of the day because their activities threaten the society. Even the multi-party system has to observe those rules. The court can rule that any party is unconstitutional and ban its activities if its program is a threat to the free democratic system or to the existence of the republic. Therefore, no one can establish a political party in Germany if it is incompatible with its basic system. A call to regulate or change the party system in Germany would be accused of dictatorship. They say we have a democratic and constitutional order. These are two sides of the same coin. The society and its institutions are sacrosanct and cannot be tampered with. The laws are there to protect the society and its order. The order we have in Libya is the Jamahiriya of the people’s power. The faith is Islam and the doctrine is popular socialism. These are the pillars of the society. It is forbidden to attempt to shake or undermine them.
In Germany you cannot establish a political party at whim. Haidar in Austria for instance, he established a party and was immediately told that his was a right wing, fascist party and that it would not be allowed to reach power. In France the same thing happened. So, while they speak of the freedom to form parties, they maintain that the parties that disrupt the established order are not allowed to come into existence. The system is free and democratic, but to attempt to destroy it and build something different in its place is not allowed. I have the German constitution in front of me. There is another article that deals with the freedom of worship. That freedom is guaranteed as long as it is compatible with public order and morality. In Switzerland it is forbidden to exercise a faith that runs counter to the public order and morality. In Switzerland where people seek asylum, measures are taken to protect the public order, social peace and to prevent the Church from infringing upon people’s rights. The Church in Switzerland cannot detract from the rights of the people or criticize the order of the State. Can someone call for German to be the sole official language in Switzerland? Of course not, because the constitution stipulates that the official languages are French, Italian and German. No archdiocese could be established on Swiss territory without the approval of the federation. The federal government lays down the rules that regulate radio and television and other mass media. The task of the media is to educate and entertain the viewers while taking into account the specific characteristics of the country and the special needs of the cantons. No radio station or newspaper can operate if it does not take the specific character of Switzerland into account. Switzerland is made up of four peoples that united together. German, French, Italian and Flemish peoples make up the country. It is forbidden to start a radio station that calls for the independence of the French or German part. The media in Switzerland must observe the public order and the character of the society. The freedom and independence of the media are guaranteed within the limits set in the article I just cited. Even in Switzerland, there are limits on the media.
Citizens in Switzerland have the right to form political parties or associations provided that none of their goals or methods is illegal or constitute a threat to the state. The laws and regulations stipulate the measures necessary to deter the violation of these provisions. The Swiss constitution speaks of deterring anyone who might threaten the state. A Swiss citizen cannot receive anything from a foreign country. They cannot receive gifts, decorations or money. As a citizen of a state, it is forbidden to visit certain states. You have all heard of the case of Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi; an Arab-American who is currently on trial. He is likely to be sentenced to one hundred years in jail because he visited Libya a number of times. A Swiss citizen cannot be deprived of his political rights unless he threatens the social institution. Some fools from the Third World go to seek asylum in Switzerland then proceed to demand things that are unheard of in that country. Of course they deport him immediately. He labors under the illusion that they will allow him to undermine Swiss institutions.
A special birthday message to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, also to the Muslim community at large, from an African American elder in the United States of America, on behalf of Black People in America
Happy Birthday, Brother Leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi!!I extend this Happy Birthday to you on behalf of all African-Americans [except, of course, Barack Obama] who, whether you know it, or believe it or not, are rooting for you!! In the black barber shops and beauty shops, away from the ear-shot of their white American oppressors, they are on the edge of their seats, praying and agonizing over you, just as we prayed and agonized over the Vietnamese, until they finally, after 20 long hard years, won their war against the U.S. genocidal maniacs; praying to God that you will succeed in defending your country against the genocidal maniacs of the North Atrocities Terrorist Organization, just as the Vietnamese people won their war against the genocidal maniacs of the U.S. government!
You have not lost anything! You have not “lost” any children! You have millions of children all over the planet. Your children will never die!
And you will never die. Remember: Your name will go down in human history for all eternity! You will be written about for as long as human beings inhabit the earth. But the names of your oppressors will not be known. They will be called only be their collective name: The Rats. Yes, indeed, in the history books of tomorrow, when the students reach the chapter on the subject of NATO, Western countries, and the U.S., that chapter will be titled, The Rats.
Barack Obama’s name will go down also, for as long as humans inhabit the earth. His name will go down as the most shameful black man in world history — the man of African descent who rained bombs on Mother Africa, his ancestral home. So, when his picture is shown in the history books, that picture will evoke hatred from the students. It will evoke SHAME in black people, as they ponder over the utterly unbelievable fact that a descendant of Africa sold his soul to serve his white masters of Europe and the U.S., and became the only man in all human history to bomb Africa in the most intense, cruel, vicious, and genocidal manner that has ever occurred. One wonders if he suffers from a typical disease that some black people, whether high or low, suffer: self-hatred in the face of what they perceive as the “superior” white nations. Why else would he unleash such a furious war against African people?!
No songs will be sung for Barack Obama! No prayers will be said for his soul, except by the very righteous saints and monks, God bless them. But, for you, songs will be sung in all lands of the earth. Prayers will rise up to the heavens daily. In fact, I call on all men, women, and children who support our beloved Brother Leader Colonel Gaddafi, to write and sing songs to him now, not before he leaves this earth!! Now is the time to write and sing songs to, and for, Colonel Gaddafi! Sing them in your villages and cities and towns and places of worship!
I am not a Muslim. But it is very easy for me to see that you, Colonel Gaddafi, are a Mujjahid! You are a Reformer within this Age, and nobody can doubt it. Maybe there exist other such Reformers. But you are also as Reformer, somewhere near the top of the list! You elevated yourself above and far beyond the petty tribalism of Arab nationality. In your love and your humanity and your sympathy, you embraced your suffering black African brethren, while your Arab brothers looked on in shock, wondering why you would extend your love, protection, and support of all kinds, including trillions of dollars, to black Africans.
And the answer is that you believe in the sayings of your Prophet, whom you call Rasulallah!! You believe in his Farewell Message, in which he stated that a red is no better than a white; a white is no better than a black. We are all equal, except to the degree of our righteousness!
How sad it is that the Arabs wonder at your love for black people! They have forgotten, tragically, the love that Rasulallah had for Bilal. They have forgotten the love that he had for Zaid. They have forgotten that he was nursed by a Black woman.
When they deride and despise black Africans, they deride and despise their Prophet!!! When the Bengazi gangsters lynch a black African, they lynch their Prophet Muhammad.
How amazing it is that, despite sometimes being rejected, you have remained a lover of those who despise you. This is astonishing! But, again, it is your love for Rasulallah, Prophet Muhammad, that created you in this manner.
Were the Muslim world to practice Islam as you know it, the world religion today would, without a doubt, be Islam. Because, everyone would be so attracted to it, due to your example.
I call on real Muslims, who can see; who have asked themselves the question, “Who are the Imams of this age?” I will not answer that question for you. But, I will say this: How many times in Muslim history have the mujjahids been murdered by “Muslims” themselves? How many times in Muslim history have the mujjahids and saints and reformers been ridiculed, while they were alive?
If you cannot see the Great Reforms that Colonel Gaddafi has made in this world, then I cannot answer the above question for you. If you cannot see how Gaddafi helped to break the back of Apartheid in South Africa, as Nelson Mandella himself admitted, then I cannot answer the question for you. If you cannot see how he transformed Libya into an oasis, with a man-made water supply that stands as a wonder of the world, then I cannot answer that question for you.
If you cannot see how, at this moment, he has stood up against the most powerful and most vicious military command in history, I cannot answer that question for you. If you are not familiar with the projects that he has done for the African and other people around the entire globe, I cannot answer that for you.
But, if you can see. If you fully understand what he has been responsible for in his short 69 years on this earth, then perhaps you will be able to answer the question yourselves.
Who is a Mujadid today? Does the mujjahid have long beards (the “bearded ones,” as Gaddafi calls them)? Do they walk with their eyes half-closed, feigning piety and wisdom? Do they spend their days and nights in prayer and food? Perhaps. I do not know.
But were I a Muslim, I would have to give serious consideration, in my mind, heart and soul, to the status of this man who is alive and walks with us. It is one thing to recognize a Mujahid hundreds of years after he has gone. But it is quite another thing to recognize one now; to lend him your support now. He needs your help. The time is crucial. The time he needs your help is now. Right now!! Give him a real birthday present of material help against NATO
I am glad that I have given him honors, and that I pray for him throughout the day. What will the Africans and Arabs do? What will the world do?
I hope that they will come to his aide. But, if they do not; and if they allow the NATO rats to destroy him and Libya, it will not change the power and status of Colonel Gaddafi. In the history books of tomorrow, the only reason he might not be mentioned is because his influence will be seen as so large as to require his life and works to be compiled in 100 encycolopedias! The Encyclopedias of Brother Leader Colonel Muamar Gaddafi!!
The white nations bankers army NATO continues to ignore all demands by the African Union to cease hostilities against Libya, it’s barbaric mission to assassinate Africa’s King of Kings under the guise of “protecting civilians” long exposed to the world
(Mathaba) Cracks are increasing within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), dubbed the Northern Atrocities Terrorist Organization by its detractors, due to it’s failure to observe any laws in its all-out efforts to destroy Libya. So far NATOhas succeeded only in strengthening support for the popular Muammar Qaddafi, who was already Africa’s best known and most loved hero due to his having handed power to the people of Libya in 1977 after only eight years in power after seizing it from a corrupt monarchy, as well as his massive endeavours for African independence, wealth and development over the years.The former colonial powers, Britain and France, with the help of the United States of America, all three with dictatorship regimes which were opposed by the majority of voters but came into power and have embarked upon a war against Africa without any approval by parliament nor congress, have been waging a 96-day long bombing of Libya with already around 5,000 bombing missions.Had any African state launched just one single bombing mission, let alone five thousand, against any white nation, no doubt the uproar would have been deafening, however the white nations media have been mute for over 3 months, although thousands of civilians have already been killed including dozens of babies and small children, from NATO bombs.Only in the last few days, have the white nations’ media started to mention civilian casualties, and only because NATO itself was finally forced into admitting the fact.The killing of 3 baby grandchildren of Muammar Qaddafi, all aged under 2 years of age and one just 4 months old, by a direct bombing of his house on May 1st in an attempt to kill him, which also took the life of his youngest son, was conveniently ignored by the white nations media networks, because the US conveniently announced the “killing of Bin Laden” just half an hour later.
Since then NATO has continued relentless bombing raids on the houses surrounding the area, as the elder Qaddafi has refused to cower and run or seek shelter, and remained in his home, where African heads of state such as South Africa’s Zuma have visited him to wish him well, and Russian Chess experts have come and played chess with him.
NATO originally believed, as evidenced by pronouncements of the British dictator Prime Sinister Cameron, that the efforts to murder Qaddafi would take “at most two days”. 96 days later, NATO is now forced to try to win public opinion and funding for a war to last “at least until the end of September.”
September is when people from around the world will converge on Libya for one of the World People’s Conferences on Crimes Against Humanity, an event that is expected to be held in 8 locations around the world simultaneously and continue for at least one month uninterrupted.
It is also the month when Libya will celebrate the 43rd year of its freedom, and another significant event will take place, which the US and EU have already attempted to prevent by seizing billion of its billion start up assets fund: the inauguration of the African Monetary Fund, African Central Bank, and African Investment Bank.
These financial institutions, backed by gold and not mere electrons or pieces of smelly American paper, are set to give Africa its long awaited economic freedom to say good bye to the so-called International Monetary Fund (IMF) known by its African detractors as the “International Mercenary Force” and also the World Bank, which is a private institution of elite banksters.
The war against Libya also prevented the United Nations from awarding Muammar Qaddafi an exceptional recognition, which had been slated to be presented in March this year, for his contributions to human rights and freedoms. Libya is the first state in the world to ratify the Green Charter on Human Rights and Freedoms, which is the most advanced human rights document to date.
Meanwhile, cracks continue to appear in Europe where participants in the bombing mission have questioned their ability to sustain it long-term, and NATO allies not currently taking part have been reluctant to offer support.
At the same time, the fame of Qaddafi has grown exponentially outside Africa with hundreds of Facebook pages springing up in his support, and millions having discovered The Green Book which contains the solutions to the problem of democracy, economics and also puts forward suggestions for the social basis of a “Third Universal Theory” which puts people first.
Whilst known by every man, woman and child across even the remotest of African villages, Muammar Qaddafi was virtually unknown by a young generation around the world outside Africa, because unlike in Africa where the bush telegraph functions effectively mouth to mouth, non-Africans have been wearing walkmans, Ipods and glued to TV screens for decades.
All that is starting to change, after the short-lived euphoria for an Australian hacker by the name Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, who was exposed as being financed by New World Order advocate George Soros, caught the imagination of many young whites who identified with Assange as victimised for exposing governments as oppressive and secretive.
Although Assange now sits since 6 months under luxury house arrest in a mansion in England, fighting extradition to Sweden on forced-sex charges, the rise of WikiLeaks, although suspiciously encouraged by the same banker-elite “new world order” media that are attempting to block any coverage of Qaddafi, showed that a young generation can still care about current issues.
Whether they can be motivated to action, and moreover overcome an environmental racism and actually listen to Qaddafi, an African, Arab and Muslim, and realise that Qaddafi and the Green Charter Movement have the solution to their own problems no matter their religion or position, remains to be seen.
So far the signs are encouraging, with already The Green Book ideas on democracy taking hold, with the formation of several People’s Conferences around the world.
This lends analysts to believe, that coupled with the events later this year where millions may converge on Libya to rebuild the nation in solidarity and as atonement for what their governments have done, in the largest ever solidarity movement in history, this may turn around the world from war and toward peace, by showing what true love of fellow humans, and noble values and ideals can achieve.
Already suggestions have been put forward for People’s Committees of various vocations and skills, such as cooks, engineers, electricians, and other fields of expertise, who may converge on Libya after September in order to undertake the organised reconstruction and building of a new “Jamahiriya” (state of the self-governing people), with daily hard work and celebrations and popular entertainment and enjoyment of good food in the evenings.
Other spontaneous reactions to the atrocious massacres of civilians in Libya by bombs dropped from 10km high in the air, and missiles fired from ships far out at sea, as well as from pilot-less drone aircraft that are remote-controlled by computer operators in the USA, in the world’s most cowardly ever war against a defenceless nation, have included “visualization” and prayers.
Those who have read the Green Charter and agree with the rights and freedoms it proclaims, have also registered their support by signing up to the independent social media network, Mathaba dot info, to engage in the Mathaba social concept of “Meeting And Talking/Typing/Texting Helping All Become Aware”, showing that there is no need to rely upon U.S. networks such as Facebook.
A great many initiatives to highlight some of the many videos which show the truth about Libya have taken place by Internet users around the world, and there have been calls for all “Warriors, Builders, Angels and Callers” to do more to engage in the now growing options at their disposal to bring about required positive change in the world.

TRIPOLI (mathaba) – Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Thursday he was against NATO intervention in Libya but had to go along with it, an admission that he had been pressured because of closet skeletons regarding corruption and sexual improprieties, exposing the fragility of the alliance trying to murder Muammar Qaddafi.Muammar Qaddafi, leader of the International Green March of the Worldwide Revolutionary Committees Movement, who holds no government decision-making position within Libya, resigned from government after handing power to the people on March 2nd, 1977 after less than 8 years in power, having seized it from a corrupt Italian-installed king on 1st September 1969.In recent years, Muammar, whose supporters say he can never be killed as he resides within the hearts of countless millions of downtrodden in the world, was also crowned King of Kings of Africa by hundreds of traditional leaders, because of his service to Africa where he successfully campaigned for the creation of a Great African Unionas a step toward the United States of Africa.The current war in Libya was hatched by an outside conspiracy hatched between England and France, in a decision taken to murder the revolutionary leader due to his speech given at the United Nationsin New York on 23rd September 2009, in which he called for the UN to be democratized and moved to another location, as well as for the so-called Security Council to be abolished.Islamist Al-Qaida extremists, released from prisons by Seif-al-Islam al-Qaddafi over the heads of the People’s Committees, joined with officials that had been also been appointed by Seif-al-Islam bypassing the Basic People’s Conferences, including the Justice Minister who was subsequently placed under investigation for corruption, and other Libyans who had wrongfully been restored Libyan citizenship by the intervention of British-educated Seif, and who had recently returned from the United States and Britain, took control of Libya’s second largest city, Benghazi, with the coordination of French and British intelligence.During the past decade the Libyan revolutionary leader of the world wide international green march had been restricted by imperialist double-agents surrounding him, including Musa Kusa and Nouri ElMesmari, who also joined the conspiracy at the outset of the war on Libya, according to Mathaba sources who spoke to the Leader.The Leader had requested the Pakistani revolutionary committee during a visit in recent years, while his minders were at a distance out of ear-shot, to “tell the world that I have not changed, I am still a revolutionary, but I am imprisoned.”Speculation is rife among the historic and pure international revolutionary movement of Muammar Qaddafi that his son Seif-al-Islam was among those who were part of an agreement to restrict his freedom. Seif-al-Islam had befriended the global elite and is being accused of reactionism by the revolutionary movement of Muammar Qaddafi.NATO war-planes have been bombing Libya under the pretence of a U.N. mandate to “protect civilians”, but the alliance is under mounting strain because of the cost of the operation and the failure, after more than three months, to produce a decisive outcome.NATO has succeeded, in fulfilment of George Orwell’s “War is Peace, Ignorance is Strength, Slavery is Freedom” futuristic New World Order prediction, to murder Libyan babies, including 3 from the Qaddafi family, and tens of thousands of Libyan defence forces and civilians.The organisation, dubbed the Narcissistic Arrogant Terrorist Organization, which is the collection of white European and North American military forces, is being led by the former colonialist nations which once again are bankrupt after depleting the resources stolen from Africa which had artificially boosted the capitalist economy for the past century.Already the bankrupt NATO countries have stolen more than million ( billion) from Libya and plan to steal 144 tons of gold for which mercenaries and spies masked as journalists, humanitarians and experts, have been dispatched.As a result of the blatant false pretences of destroying all Libyan infrastructure, including by the use of depleted Uranium and the planned of use of nuclear weapons, in order to “protect civilians from Qaddafi”, 1.7 million Libyans — around one third of the entire population — came out in the world’s largest ever march on July 1st, shouting slogans against NATO and in support of Muammar Qaddafi.Because NATO has continued to bomb Africa’s most wealthy and strongest defence, with its longest coastline on the North of Africa, people around the world are now planning a “Ten Million Man Woman And Child International Green March”, to show support for the man who gave freedom and dignity to a nation and an entire continent, where his name is known by every child in the remotest of African villages.
“I was against this measure (to bomb Libya),” Berlusconi said. “I had my hands tied by the vote of the parliament of my country. But I was against and I am against this intervention which will end in a way that no-one knows.”
However, observers note that Berlusconi only made this pronouncement after 111 days of non-stop bombing failed to kill Muammar Qaddafi, who refused to leave Tripoli, in spite of several direct hits on his humble abode. They note that Italy now realizes it will have to pay tons of gold for any future oil supplies from Libya, upon which it depends, because Libyans are now solidly united behind their Leader.
Many of the alliance bombing missions over Libya take off from military airbases in Italy as it is the closest point of NATO to Libya, and the operational command is being carried out by a Canadian war criminal from NATO’s Italy headquarters.
There was no suggestion following Berlusconi’s comments that Rome would withdraw the use of the bases in spite of mounting calls to do so. But Defence Minister Ignazio La Russa said that the cost to Italy of the Libya operation would fall from 142 million euros in the first half of the year to less than 60 million euros in the second half as part of general defence spending cuts.
He said after a cabinet meeting on Thursday the aircraft carrier Garibaldi with three aircraft on board had been withdrawn, and their tasks would be taken on by land-based aircraft. in oil and gas projects.
Meanwhile, the U.S.-subservient South Korea Moon Sectarian U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had the gall to “urge Gaddafi — who has dismissed rebels trying to end his four-decade rule as criminals and vermin — to listen to the will of the people.”
Which part of the “Two Million Man Woman And Child Green March” does Ban Ki-Moon fail to understand?
“We are far from reaching an agreement to reach an end to the conflict but the negotiating process is ongoing,” the U.N. Secretary General told reporters in Geneva. “He (Gaddafi) has to listen much more attentively and seriously what would be the best for the future of the Libyan people.”
Future World People’s Conferences on Crimes Against Humanity are likely to set up a World People’s Tribunal to try the South Korean for his failure to carry out his duty for peace as head of an organisation that claims within its charter to conduct that role, because he refused to send fact-finding missions to Libya and conduct a proper research of the false allegations of the white colonial powers.
Further, the United Nations has prevented the African Union Peace & Security Council from performing its mandated role, and has ignored all calls from Muammar Qaddafi for a cease-fire and end to the bombing of Libyans by NATO.
The terrorists trying to advance towards the capital, Tripoli, launched offensives on two fronts on Wednesday and made “significant gains” according to foreign media that have been pushing this same line since the outset of the war, now couched by the added phrase “but analysts said the advances were not yet enough to shift the military balance against Qaddafi.”
In the Western Mountains Southwest of Tripoli, the same NATO media that failed to report the largest march in history on Friday 1st July, reporting from the comfort of their Rixos Hotel claim that “fighters pushed pro-Gaddafi forces out of the village of Al-Qawalish, clearing the way for them to try to seize control of the main highway heading north to the capital.”
Anti-Gaddafi terrorists received a “fresh diplomatic boost” when China sent a senior diplomat to meet the rebel leadership in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.
The visit by Chen Xiaodong, China’s foreign ministry chief for North African affairs, was the second official meeting between China and Libyan opposition leaders in less than a month.
“China believes that the present situation cannot go on and a political resolution to find a way out of the Libyan crisis must be found as soon as possible,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at a regular news briefing in Beijing.
There were reports this week that Gaddafi — under pressure from the five-month-old uprising against his rule, sanctions and the NATO bombing campaign — was seeking a deal under which he would step down.
His government has denied any such negotiations are under way, and NATO’s chief, another individual facing the upcoming war crimes tribunal said he had no confirmation that Gaddafi was looking for a deal to relinquish power.
Libya experts point out that this is something rather hard to do since he gave up all governing powers in 1977, and gave instructions to the international revolutionary committees movement that contain the green print for democracy.
A Libyan official told Reuters on Wednesday there were signs a solution to the conflict could be found by early August, when the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins. However, he did not say what that solution might involve.
In response to the almost 2 million historic largest march in history which took place in Tripoli on Friday 1st, a few hundred mostly foreign Tunisians and Egyptians took to the streets in Benghazi and Misrata on Wednesday night, in a protest against Gaddafi, waving U.S., European, Islamist and monarchist flags and calling for the end to the life of Muammar Qaddafi.

LIBYA : GREAT MAN MADE RIVER reason for NATO attack
BREAKING NEWS- IMPORTANT- NATO are targeting the pipe factory of the Great Man Made River in the city of Brega, where pipes are manufactured to compensate for damaged pipes of the river, THE ONLY SOURCE OF DRINKING WATER and irrigation for 4.5 MILLION the people of Libya!!! IMMINENT HUMANITARIAN DISASTER!!!!! ALERT!!!ALERT!!!!
July 22 2011. A date for humanity to remember. NATO hit the Libyan water supply pipeline. It will take months to repair. Then on Saturday they hit the pipeline factory producing pipes to repair it.
Sine when is the water supply pipeline itself a legitimate target?
The Libyan leader Moammar Al Gaddafi informed members of the Security Council in his message that the alliance decided to carry out mass murder against the Libyan people by targeting their only drinking water source, where billions were invested and without it life stops in Libya. He wondered what’s the relation between this factory and the protection of civilians that NATO claims it is carrying out?
Muammer Al Gaddafi Visiting The Project
Mu’ammar al-Qathafi himself oversaw the construction of this huge project, brick by brick!
A unique Libyan project, the “Great Man Made River” has brought water from under the Sahara Desert and made it available to various historically parched areas which can now be cultivated and developed into a breadbasket for the region. The US-led international banking consortium is of course poised to seize this most valuable asset now that it is coming to fruition. Wars will be fought over access to water throughout the Arab land in coming years. Control of water could become even more decisive than petroleum reserves in decades to come.
Schematic map of the project. Designed in five phases, which eventually combine to form an integrated system, it is an estimated 25 years from completion.
Gaddafi-Central Bank used billion, without interest rates, to build the Great Man-Made River with three parallel pipelines running oil, gas and water supplying 70% of the people (4.5 of its 6 million) with clean drinking and irrigation water. This provides adequate crops for the people and would be a competitive exporter of vegetables with ISRAEL and Egypt.
– Approximately 500,000 pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipes have been manufactured to date.
– Approximately 500,000 pipes transported to date. Pipe transportation is continuous process and the work goes on day and night, distance traveled by the transporters is equivalent to the sun and back.
– Over 3,700 km of haul roads was constructed alongside the pipe line trench
to enable the heavy truck — trailers to deliver pipe to the installation site Phase I Total Length 1,600 Km.
Phase II Total Length 2,155 Km.
– Volume of Trench Excavation 250 Million Cubic Meter.
– The amount of aggregate used in the project : 30,000,000 Ton.
Enough to Build 20 pyramids the size of the great pyramid of Khoufu.
– Total Weight of Cement used 7.0 Million Tones.
– Total Length of Pre-Stressing Wire 6.0 Million Kilometers
This would circle the Earth 280 times. http://libyanpeoplesbureau.com/manmaderiver.html
Since when is a water pipes factory in al-Brega a legitimate target to impose a no-fly zone to protect civilians? Sine when is the water supply pipeline itself a legitimate target?
