1HIS IS JERY MOJIAC:
In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful...
For 40 years, or was it longer, I can't remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools,
and when they were hungry, I gave them Iood. I even made Benghazi into Iarmland Irom the desert, I
stood up to attacks Irom 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
Irom AIrica with money Ior the AIrican Union.
I did all I could to help people Understand the concept oI 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 Iurniture, were never satisIied, as selIish as they were they wanted more. They told Americans and
other visitors, that they needed "democracy" and "Ireedom" 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 Iree medicine, no Iree hospitals, no Iree housing, no Iree education and no Iree
Iood, except when people had to beg or go to long lines to get soup.
No, no matter what I did, it was never enough Ior some, but Ior others, they knew I was the son oI Gamal
Abdel Nasser, the only true Arab and Muslim leader we've had since Salah-al-Deen, when he claimed the
Suez Canal Ior his people, as I claimed Libya, Ior my people, it was his Iootsteps I tried to Iollow, to keep
my people Iree Irom colonial domination - Irom thieves who would steal Irom us.
Now, I am under attack by the biggest Iorce in military history, my little AIrican son, Obama wants to kill
me, to take away the Ireedom oI our country, to take away our Iree housing, our Iree medicine, our Iree
education, our Iree Iood, and replace it with American style thievery, called "capitalism¨, but all oI us in
the Third World know what that means, it means corporations run the countries, run the world, and the
So, there is no alternative Ior me, I must make my stand, and iI Allah wishes, I shall die by Iollowing His
path, the path that has made our country rich with Iarmland, with Iood and health, and even allowed us to
help our AIrican and Arab brothers and sisters.
I do not wish to die, but iI 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 oI NATO, stood up to
cruelty, stoop up to betrayal, stood up to the West and its colonialist ambitions, and that I stood with my
AIrican brothers, my true Arab and Muslim brothers, as a beacon oI light.
When others were building castles, I lived in a modest house, and in a tent. I never Iorgot my youth in
Sirte, I did not spend our national treasury Ioolishly, and like Salah-al-Deen, our great Muslim leader,
who rescued Jerusalem Ior Islam, I took little Ior myselI...
In the West, some have called me "mad", "crazy", but they know the truth yet continue to lie, they know
that our land is independent and Iree, not in the colonial grip, that my vision, my path, is, and has been
clear and Ior my people and that I will Iight to my last breath to keep us Iree, may Allah almighty help us
to remain IaithIul and Iree.
