The Truth About Libya 
by Stephen GoodsonColonel Muammar Gadaffi is frequently referred to in the media as a"mad dictator" and "bloody tyrant", but do these allegations accordwith the facts?Libya consists of over 15O tribes, with the two main groups, theMeghabra living in Tripolitania in the west and the Wafallah living inCyrenaica in the east. Previous attempts to unite these tribes by theTurkish (1855-1911) and ltalian (1911-43) colonial rulers failed andthe country was split in two for administrative purposes.Oil was discovered in Libya in 1959, but King ldris of the Senussitribe allowed most of the oil profits to be siphoned into the coffers of the oil companies. The coup d'etat on 1 September 1969 led byColonel Gadaffi had countrywide support. He subsequently married awoman from the royal Barqa tribe and adroitly unified the nation.By retaining Libya's oil wealth for the benefit of all its people, Gadaffihad created a socialist paradise. There is no unemployment, Libyahas the highest GDP in Africa, less than 5% of the population isclassified as poor and it has fewer people living below the povertydatum line than for example in Holland. Life expectancy is 75 yearsand is the highest in Africa and I0% above the world average.With the exception of the nomadic Bedouin and Tuareg tribes, mostLibyan families possess a house and a car. There is free health careand education and not surprisingly Libya has a literacy rate of 82%.
Last year Gadaffi distributed $500 to each man, woman and child (population 6.5 million).
 Libya has a tolerable human rights record and stands at 61 on theInternational Incarceration Index, comparable with countries incentral Europe (the lower the rating, the lower the standing - the USA
 
occupies the no.1 spot!). There is hardly any crime and only rebelsand traitors are dealt with harshly. Anyone who has read Gadaffi's little Green Book will realize that heis a thoughtful and enlightened leader. Libya has been accused of having committed numerous acts of terrorism in the past, but many of these have been perpetrated by foreign intelligence agencies as falseflag operations - theLockerbiebombing being a prime example.The CIA and MI6 and their frontmen have been stoking up dissent inthe east of the country for almost 30 years. Libya producesexceptionally high quality light crude oil and its production cost of $1a barrel, compared to the current price of $115, is the lowest in theworld.Riba (usury) is not permitted. The Central bank of Libya is a wholly-owned by the Libyan Government and is run as a state bank, issuingall government loans free of interest. This is in contrast to theexploitative fractional reserve banking system of the West. The no-flyzone and the bombing of Libya have nothing to do with the protectionof civilians. It is an act of war a blatant and crude attempt by the oilcorporations and international bankers to steal the wealth of Libya. . ..FULL TEXT ---CAVEAT: Mr. Goodson's account needs verification. We believe thisis the same Stephen Goodson who is the leader of the Abolition of Income Tax and Usury Party, and who "back in 2003. . . unseated mining boss Brian Gilbertson from the Bank's board" in South Africa.[

The conflict in Libya is not a revolution
, but a counter-revolution.The struggle "is fundamentally a battle between Pan-African forceson the one hand, who are dedicated to the realization of Qaddafi'svision of a united Africa, and reactionary racist Libyan Arab forceswho reject Qaddafi's vision of Libya as part of a united Africa." . . .Thousands of Indians, Egyptians, Chinese, Filipinos, Turks,Germans, English, Italians, Malaysians, Koreans and a host of other nationalities are lining up at the borders and the airport to leaveLibya. It begs the question: What were they doing in Libya in the firstplace? Unemployment figures, according to the Western media and Al Jazeera, are at 30%. If this is so, then why all these foreignworkers?. . . Qaddafi committed some "cardinal sins." He dared to challengetheir reactionary and feudal notions of Islam. He has upheld the ideathat every Muslim is a ruler (Caliph) and does not need the Ulema tointerpret the Quran for them. He has questioned the Islam of theMuslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda from a Quranic/theologicalperspective and is one of the few political leaders equipped to do so.--Gerald A. Perreira, "
