"The oppressor is always watching for that leader," Louis Farrakhan explained, "They know that the people will never be free until they produce a leader with the vision to create the revolution and see it through to its ultimate end."
~ Muammar Al Qadhafi is more than just the Leader of the Libyan people.
~ More than the Leader of the struggling Arab Nation.
~ More than the symbol of hope and freedom for the oppressed of Africa, Asia and Latin America.
These are not just mere words or idle praises because, unlike many of this century's heads of state who have laid claim to the mantle of 'revolutionary leader', Muammar Al Qadhafi's ACTIONS and LIFE have earned him the title of Leader of the World Revolution.
In the desert heaven and earth meet. It was in the desert that God spoke to Moses.
From an early age he appeared to be different from other children. He was serious, even taciturn; yet his stern countenance was always tempered with an inquisitive smile. He was an only son to a family who lived in the desert, far from the city and its demands and benefits. Young Muammar seldom played with his cousins; rather he was always lost in thought about one thing or another. (Gadafi, Voice from the Desert, Mirella Bianco, Page 4.)
"It was difficult in terms of the circumstances and the environment under which I lived. Bedouin life is mobile; the strictness of upbringing therefore comes from the severity of these circumstances. But socially I was free. We were Bedouins enjoying full freedom and we lived amongst nature and everything was absolutely pure, in its true self, in front of us.
We lived on the land and there was nothing between us and the sky."
"Bedouin society made me discover the natural laws, natural relationships, life in its true nature and what suffering was like before life knew oppression and exploitation. This had enabled me to discover the truths that I have presented in the Green Book. It gave me a chance which has never been given to anybody else in my position. I have known and lived life in its very primitive stages."Because of that early life, a very simple life, I have lived life in its various stages right up to this modern age of imperialism when life became very complicated, very abnormal and unnatural. I had a general idea how to make the masses free, how to make man happy. After that, things started to get clearer." ('Heart to Heart With Qadhafi', New Africa, Feb. 1983.)
Single-minded and self-determined Muammar Qadhafi dedicated himself to the overthrow of the corrupt regime of King Idris and the establishment of the new society on the principles of justice, equality and a fair distribution of wealth.
Mirella Bianco after interviewing Col. Qadhafi's childhood friends and close family members wrote:
"It is in the desert that one must seek out the very essence of Qadhafi's nature, of the spirituality, of the mysticism which have greater weight than any of his aspirations, and which influence even his political action...
“It is precisely this concept of liberty, the intangible freedom of desert people, ~ a freedom entirely one's own and yet a submission to God, and God alone, ~ which underlies all the choices, decisions and actions taken by Qadhafi; even, and perhaps essentially, those of a political nature.
“To his way of thinking, there is no salvation for mankind or for the nations unless they believe in God and cling to those moral values which no coercion can enforce, and which can arise only from faith." (Gadafi, Voice from the Desert, Mirella Bianco, P.4.)
On September 1st, 1969 the months of planning and the years of dedication and discipline came to fruition.
Not a military coup d'etat it was the beginning of a revolution the ramifications of which were to reach every part of the globe and touch the lives of all peoples.
"I am leaving you, I say to you: My brother Muammar Qadhafi is the representative of Arab nationalism, of the Arab revolution and Arab unity. My dear brothers, may God watch over you for the well-being of the Arab people. May you go from victory to victory, for your victories are the victories of the Arab people."
Today, many years after the formation of the first revolutionary committee, the organization of the Free Unionist Officers and 1st of September 1969, Muammar Qadhafi still holds to these sublime values and lives them as the Leader of the World Revolution.
"If Kirkegaard was right,
and purity of heartis to will one thing and one thing only,then Qadhafiwas the purest-hearted military conspirator
ever to seize control of a nation.
He did not drink or smoke,
there are no tales of youthful passion;
he appeared to have no personal life at all."
This purity of heart, single-mindedness, courage, dedication and self-determination are the cherished aspects of a revolutionary life and they can be seen in abundance in the life of the Leader Muammar Qadhafi.
"It is not like writing an ordinary book. It was simply an attempt to explain the dialectic which exists between Marxism and capitalism. The world has reached a political and economic impasse, and humanity simply cannot accept this impasse and accept to die. There must be a way out. That way out is this new theory". ('Heart to Heart With Qadhafi', New Africa, Feb. 1983.)
"Humanity now urgently needs a cry of justice which would return it to its senses and to its Creator...
We need to go back to God and turn away from evil...
Atomic bombs, missiles, biological weapons and aggression can only be the making of the Devil.
The ideology we propose to the world is humanitarian but not made by men, nor is it a philosophy, but it is based on truth....
This is God’s law, always one, immortal, and unchangeable, a universal religion of truth which belongs to all mankind.
The Third Theory offers an alternative to capitalist materialism and communist atheism and calls for the return of mankind to the Kingdom of God. Mankind was never in greater need to rearm itself with faith than it is now.
We all know that all the philosophies and ideologies have failed to disprove the existence of God, and as the truth of His existence is self-evident, it is quite clear that society must be reorganized in every country of the world in accordance with the will of God and the precepts of His Prophets."
This is the world historical mission
of the son of the desert
to return to the natural precepts
which alone can guarantee human fulfillment
and establish justice in the society.
As such Muammar Qadhafi's message covers the political, economic, social and philosophical dimensions of life.
"Finally, the era of the masses, which follows the age of the republics, excites the feelings and dazzles the eyes... The Third Universal Theory heralds emancipation from the fetters of injustice, despotism, exploitation and economic and political hegemony, for the purpose of establishing a society of all the people where all are free and have equal share in authority, wealth and arms. Freedom will then triumph definitively and universally." ~ The Green Book, Muammar Al Qadhafi
Both the Prophet and Qadhafi
are Bedouins of a similar desert background.
They both share, therefore, a common love
for freedom, physical endurance, and an ideal of equality in society.
They are both given to meditation, and share the belief
that no real change in society could occur without a spiritual transformation.
Both share a feeling of urgency
in having to convey their vision of the universe to others.
They are both teachers
with unshakable certainty in the rightness of their convictions.
They both possess unusual courage,
and an indomitable determination to pursue their mission.
Finally, they are products of similar moments
of transition and change in human history.
"It was hard to credit that this was the man President Reagan had condemned as the world's number one terrorist.
Colonel Muammar Al Qadhafi was simple and charming sitting by the bonfire outside his tent when I arrived to interview him.
He told me: 'I see the press as being the messengers between me and the world to tell them the truth.'"
Muammar Qadhafi's "crime" is actively working to build a better world for all humanity and outlining in his Green Book a way by which the masses on every continent can take power, wealth and arms into their hands.
"I am a revolutionary in struggle. One doesn't become tired when one is engaged in struggle. The struggle will continue. I will continue."
Muammar Qadhafi's inspiration, vision and lifehave earned him the title ofLEADER OF THE WORLD REVOLUTION.
