Libya: Gaddafi’s Last Speech – Pricking The Conscience of The West
~ by Muammar Gaddafi, April 17, 2011 ~
In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful.
rescuedFor 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
I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Ronald 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 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.
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, stoop 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.
NOTE: After President Muammar Gaddafi was successfully eliminated by some western coalition, Libya has never known peace. Isn’t the west wasting Africa?
