Qadaffi Was Nationalist Hero, Not Villain

By Peter Papaherakles

On October 20, one of the last remaining populist world leaders, Muammar Qadaffi, allegedly was cut down by globalist thugs. The murderers patted themselves on the back for their achievement. What crimes did Qadaffi (and Saddam Hussein before him) commit except having been in charge of countries with an abundance of quality oil? Was it that they refused to succumb to the usury racket, or that they were outspoken about Israel’s bullying of the Palestinians?

Hussein was accused of having weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), but the WMDs were non-existent. Qadaffi’s alleged crimes were  ambiguous. Some cite the bombing of a German discotheque and the bombing of Flight 103. Subsequent investigations showed the allegations were unfounded.

In the disco case, the trial revealed that at least two of the five suspects were Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Mossad agents, and the other three were protected by United States intelligence agencies. In the Lockerbie bombing, a witness publicly recanted his testimony, admitting that he was paid $4 million to lie at the trial.

Qadaffi’s home was bombed by the U.S. Air Force in 1986, killing 30 civilians, including his daughter. In more recent North Atlantic Treaty Organization attempts on his life, one of his sons and three granddaughters were killed.

Most Americans are not aware how good the Libyans had it under Qadaffi.


In his 42 years of serving Libya as “the brother leader of the revolution,” he took it from being the poorest country in the world to having the highest standard of living in all of Africa—and ahead of Russia, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. Education was free; the government would even pay for studies abroad.

Healthcare was free for all Libyans. Electricity was also free for everyone; the price of gasoline was 14¢ a gallon. A loaf of bread cost less than half a cent.

If someone bought a new car, the state would pay half the cost. Newlyweds received $50,000 toward the purchase of a home, and those wishing to engage in farming got free land, a free house, free equipment, livestock and seeds. A portion of Libyan oil sales was credited directly to the bank accounts of all citizens. If a university graduate was unable to find employment after graduation, the state would pay the average salary of the profession until employment was found.

Even more amazing were Libya’s banking policies, which might explain why it was targeted: All bank loans were interest free. The central bank was state owned and was not controlled by the Rothschilds. Money was interest free and as a result, Libya had zero national debt, not a penny owed to anyone. Not only did Libya have no national debt, but it had a $150 billion surplus. Literacy rates went from 20% to 83%.

Another reason Libya was attacked was that Qadaffi broke rule No. 1 in the global power establishment: He was working to change payment for oil away from the U.S. dollar. That is the one thing the U.S. can never allow, because the dollar is the international reserve currency for the purchase of oil.

No, Qadaffi was not the dictator we have been led to believe, nor was he a terrorist. The only terror he spread was in the banking headquarters of the global establishment.
