Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
Commemorating The Social Individual takes a look at one aspect of the life of Ma’amar Ghadafi.
Until the turn of the 21st century, the fabric of Libya inherently detested Africans.
One major incident altered the racism against Africans – the attempted assassination of Ma’amar Ghadafi, in which he sustained serious leg wounds.
In need of urgent medical attention, and with prevailing sanctions by the United Nations and western countries, Ma’amar’s options were tremendously reduced.
In his despondency, a suggestion was proffered which he accepted.
Ma’amar travelled to the city of Enugu in Nigeria, the most populous and prosperous nation of Africans.
There, at the hands of Igbos, he received expert medical care.
On his return to Libya, Ma’amar made a declaration: All Africans are one.
It was an affirmation there was no difference between an Arab and an African.
The aim was two-fold:
a) To check anti-African sentiments among Libyans – though this effect was temporary, as anti-African riots erupted a couple of years later – and
b) To encourage the integration of Africans into Libyan society.
Libya became a destination of choice for many Africans, regardless of belief system.
Many Africans from Niger, Nigeria, Sudan, and so on, arrived Libya in search of greener pastures.
Ma’amar had enabled the free movement of Africans into and within Libya, which endeared him to Africans.
Unlike some leaders, the support Ma’amar commanded in Africa was not limited to fellow heads of state.
Ma’amar had a bond with many ordinary Africans, the same Africans referred to, condescendingly, in some writings as Ghadafi’s Africans.
Those are Africans proud to be African and delighted to recognise the freedom championed by Ma’amar in Africa.
This is the Africa the freedom-loving invaders attempted to exploit to justify their illegal invasions; remember: Niger supplies nuclear material to Al-Qaedah.
Following the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, two western terrorists George Bush and Tony Blair turned their anarchist capabilities to Libya.
They insisted on the destruction of missiles possessed by Libya.
I pondered the reasons. I comprehended the reasons, from my perspective.
That was when the <a title="THE ARROGATION OF THE IGNORANT TO THE MOST NOBLE" href="https://iamummsulaim.wordpress.com/2013/04/18/the-arrogation-of-the-ignorant-to-the-most-noble/" target="_blank">principle for efficient evasion of the tyrant king</a> emerged.
Ma’amar merely made his nation less palatable to the invading tyrant kings.
Concerned, I thought he might make himself and his nation more vulnerable.
Those beasts will attack you no matter what you do. Stop destroying those weapons.
They ought to lead the way and destroy their weapons of mass destruction.
The west continues to dictate who can belong to the club of mass murders.
Only those murderers approved by the west are welcome.
Incidentally, the invading armies, this time the United States and France, returned in 2011 for humanitarian purposes. Indeed!
Here we go again, I thought.
<strong>Is being human not a prerequisite for embarking on humanitarian activities?</strong>
The humanitarian gestures were the bombing of civilian premises, housing women and children, contrived as Ma’amar’s hideout.
Very humanitarian! Too much déjà vu!
The end saw the brutal assassination of Ma’amar after which some Arab publicists mocked his appearance.
To all of those individuals:
Your modernist appearance – western suits and flimsy dresses – and education failed to eliminate the racist in you.
The bedu, who preferred his tent, even in foreign travels, and addressed his hosts in Arabic, even though he was fluent in English, realised his error and successfully turned his racism to an appreciation of Africans.
The end of racism saw an end to one sin, for racism is against Islam.
Ma’amar left this world, hopefully, with one less sin.
To those individuals, worry more about your sins and the state of your affairs at the time of your death.
And should you declare yourself a secularist, socialist, or communist, you are farther from Islam.
In that case, fastened to your neck are not just your minor sins, but also the most destructive sin of all, kufr.
The splendid humour is the invading secularists are not impressed with Libya’s new-found democracy.
Someone ought to have given the French President a backhand slap on the lips, for his belated awakening to reality!
The west prefer democracy sisi-style or pervert-style. The only democracy recognised by the west are those that provide the west with a rectum relationship.
Democracy is rectum-crazy.
Democracy through violence is indeed a demonstration of craze .
Ma’amar Ghadafi, may Allah forgive you your sins and grant you Jannah al-Firdaus. Aameen.
Farewell, Ma’amar. We will meet in the next life, In Sha Allah.
 "Demonstration of craze", was coined by Fela Anikulapo Kuti, a renowned Nigerian artiste, in reference to the insanity carried out under the flag of democracy.
