BBC Realize 4 years too late that Gaddafi was good for Libya – publishing piece on the “messiah of Africa”

 

When Muammar Gaddafi was toppled in 2011, there were scenes of jubilation in Libya. But Jake Wallis Simons didn’t have to go far in Ghana to find those who have fond memories of the executed Libyan leader, and are still mourning his loss.

One recent Sunday afternoon, amid the yellow dust, sunshine and traffic fumes of Accra, I met a man who told me that Colonel Gaddafi was the messiah.

The man’s name was Karim Mohamed, an ebullient 45-year-old tailor who had spent three years living and working in Libya before the fall of Gaddafi.

He was married with three children, and lived in a six-bedroom house that he had built himself using the money he had earned in Libya.

“In Libya, everybody was happy,” he told me. “In America, there are people sleeping under bridges. In Libya, never. There was no discrimination, no problems, nothing. The work was good and so was the money. My life is all thanks to Gaddafi. He was the messiah of Africa.”

Karim was far from unusual in this part of Ghana. As we talked, two other men sauntered over to join the conversation, and turned out to share his passion for the late Libyan dictator.

 

Editor’s comment: NOW, 4 years later, BBC publish a piece that vindicates Gaddafi. Something we in the alternative knew all along, while establishment supporters like BBC were busy cheering on those who were advocating for his dethronement.

“Gaddafi was a nice guy,” said Mustafa Abdel Momin, a cheerful, 35-year-old construction worker who had worked in Libya for seven years. “He never cheated anybody. He was perfect. The best.”

“What was the point of killing him?” added Eliyas Yahya, the local imam, who had a round hat, a pointed beard and a very loud voice. “You kill someone to solve the problem and now the problem is worse. Why kill Gaddafi?”

    The problem isn’t worse. It’s completely fixed. The lifestyle they had before, the riches that belonged to others, the example Libya was to the world, the banking system printing debt free money, and building water pipelines to poorer areas.

    All these problems have gone, Libya is how they want it, poor and broken.

    Gaddafi had nothing to do with Lockerbie, which was a CIA black op. The Libyans didn’t shoot PC Yvonne Fletcher. The bullet that killed her is still being held by the Met because it doesn’t match any of the Kalashnikovs that the Libyans had. It’s from a Heckler and Koch. From the trajectory of the bullet it’s clear that the shot wasn’t fired from the Libyan Bureau but another building altogether. Gaddafi made a big mistake in listening to the British and freeing the terrorists from jail in Bengazi in 2010. The British used the opportunity to smuggle arms over the Egyptian border to Bengazi. The terrorist army that resulted was supported by the RAF. It is well known that Gaddafi turned the poorest country in Africa into the richest. Not a bad guy at all in a dirty world like this one!

      The late Joe Vialls did an excellent article on the PC Yvonne Fletcher shooting. He incidentally also tore the Soham murders of the two little girls to pieces as well. He pointed the finger at the far more likely culprits in USAF base Lakenheath. The media even disclosed that Huntly had previously been charged with rape. He had but it was statutory rape. He had consensual sex when a teenager himself with his fifteen year old girlfriend, with whom in her words he was in love, hardly a heinous crime. I won’t go on anyway as it won’t change things. After reading the article I can only say that I very much doubt the official version of events.

    It’s getting dirtier by the day….the crime lords are named and shamed we just need a mass arrest. It will come about and they will ultimately take the full blame for all the evil they have carried out. Common law will be very much the take over of law and order. Justice will be done.
