Last Will of Muammar Gaddafi

Translated by the BBC

Judge for yourselves the type of man who wrote these simple, sincere last requests and be heartened by his final message to his [ALL] people to "always" RESIST the forces that would oppress and enslave.

"This is my will. I, Muammar bin Mohammad bin Abdussalam bi Humayd bin Abu Manyar bin Humayd bin Nayil al Fuhsi Gaddafi, do swear that there is no other God but Allah and that Mohammad is God's Prophet, peace be upon him. I pledge that I will die as Muslim.

Should I be killed, I would like to be buried, according to Muslim rituals, in the clothes I was wearing at the time of my death and my body unwashed, in the cemetery of Sirte, next to my family and relatives.

I would like that my family, especially women and children, be treated well after my death. The Libyan people should protect its identity, achievements, history and the honourable image of its ancestors and heroes. The Libyan people should not relinquish the sacrifices of the free and best people.

I call on my supporters to continue the resistance, and fight any foreign aggressor against Libya, today, tomorrow and always.

Let the free people of the world know that we could have bargained over and sold out our cause in return for a personal secure and stable life. We received many offers to this effect but we chose to be at the vanguard of the confrontation as a badge of duty and honour.

Even if we do not win immediately, we will give a lesson to future generations that choosing to protect the nation is an honour and selling it out is the greatest betrayal that history will remember forever despite the attempts of the others to tell you otherwise."

Correspondent, Lizzy Phelan - The War on Libya is a War on AFRICA

Freedom vs Slavery
by ted Tuesday, Oct 25 2011, 1:00am

A thought provoking last testament, which prompts one to reflect on notions of SLAVERY and FREEDOM.

Leaders that reject US/NATO neo-colonialism and Imperialism are immediately portrayed as somehow evil or comical and targeted for assassination -- only a blind fool could not see through the transparent US/NATO criminal pursuit of Gaddafi and his sons.

Nevertheless, the Libyan will to FREEDOM lives on and will no doubt become manifest in due course -- who could tolerate living under the barbaric, fundamentalist Sharia law for any length of time?

But that is one nation's struggle against the forces of slavery and oppression.

In contrast to the lucidity of Africans are the SLAVE masses of America and Europe who imagine they are free; the Corporate media via Televisions and 'home entertainment units' constantly inform the masses that they are free, when DISPARITY and EQUITY CLEARLY tell the REAL story.

It is true; the most pathetic and tragic slaves of all are those that imagine they are free! Compare the multi-million dollar incomes of Bankers and Corporate CEOs/directors with average Americans and the TRUTH stares you in the face.

While sociopathic types like Hillary Clinton and reprehensible puppets like Obama praise ARMED UPRISINGS in other regions of the world THAT MESSAGE IS LOST on the SLAVE population of America.

Could anyone JUSTIFY why some US incomes exceed others by tens of millions of dollars? I think not, it's a matter of constant persuasion by (CORPORATE) media barrage that accustoms Western masses to abject S-L-A-V-E-R-Y!

It is better to have lived as a fighting Lion and die fighting, than live like an American, shit-eating, whipped dog!

You want equality and freedom? Then ARM yourselves, ERADICATE the criminal minority that have subjected you and TAKE what is RIGHTFULLY YOURS.

Restore your LEGAL SYSTEMS and your government to REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY -- and FOREVER guard against all forms of physical and psychological slavery and oppression!
