Salam, I've heard a lot of theories about Libya over the years especially since Ghaddafi's fall.

However many seem like conspiracy theories that people love to believe, Insha'Ala will run it by you guys, give me your thoughts on it and is there any or some element of truth to it ?

THIS IS WHY GADDAFI IS DEAD! His gold dinar would have shut down the fake economies of the Rothschilds around the world and give the power back to the people.


1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.

2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.

3. Home considered a human right in Libya – Gaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Gaddafi’s father has
died while him, his wife and his mother are still living in a tent.

4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 Dinar (US$ 50,000 ) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.

5. Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25% of Libyans are literate. Today the figure is 83%.

6. Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipment, seeds and livestock to kick- start their farms – all for free.

7. If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya, the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free but they get US $2, 300/mth accommodation and car allowance.

8. In Libyan, if a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidized 50% of the price.

9. The price of petrol in Libya is $0. 14 per liter.

10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – now frozen globally.

11. If a Libyan is unable to get employment after graduation the state would pay the average salary of the profession as if he or she is employed until
employment is found.

12. A portion of Libyan oil sale is, credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens.

13. A mother who gave birth to a child receive US $5 ,000

14. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $ 0.15

15. 25% of Libyans have a university degree

16. Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Man-Made River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country. U.S. Military Intervention in Libya Aimed to Squelch Gold-Backed African Dinar

If all that was true there would not have been a rebellion...!

(1) Half true...., electricity I believe was susidised but not free.

(2) False

(3) False.

(4) ?.... I remember from a Shaykh Hamza Yusuf lecture years ago, that Libya had one of the highest unmarried population amongst the youth, and due to the fact it was financially very difficult to start a family (pay for the wedding purchase a property)......but I also read somewhere that Gaddafis government was paying young couples $10,000 after they got married, if it is true then it was probably a more recent measure from the government. But $50,000 dollar figure is a clear lie

(5) True...Education and Medical treatment were free, and literacy was 83%.

(6) False...There was talk of building a city in the desert , were the population would be encouraged to move, I don't know how true that was.

(7) False.

(8) False.

(9) Half True... Like all petrol pruducing countries Petrol was very cheap but I think it was higher then $0.14

(10) TRUE...Libya had reserves of $150 Billion and was completely financially independent.

(11) False.

(12) False.

(13) ?

(14) Half True....Essential food were subsidised but I think 40 loaves for 0.15, is an exaggeration.

(15) True...But about the same amount were unemployed.

(16) True...massive Irrigation project one of Gaddafis vanity projects.

Usually in Dictatorships individuals who work for the regime get certain privileges, so I presume..most of the benefits mentioned were for those select individuals closely associated with the regime. And Allah knows best.

When the rebellion first kicked of, I remember a sister from Benghazi speak on the Radio, about how young men who prayed Fajr in the Masjid were routinely rounded up, interrogated and tortured. Young men who prayed Fajr were considered potential Islamists who might represent a threat to the regime.

If anyone who has actually, seen Gaddafi give an interview in English, what was patently clear was that the guy was not altogether mentally, he came across as a paranoid crackpot but at same time charismatic, with delusions of grandeur very strange individual, as far as leaders go over the last 100 years he stands alone in his own category he was one of a kind, and his famous "Green Book" got more veneration from the regime then the Quran.... , Only other political figure who gives similar performances on Television to Gaddafi is Pakistans MQM leader Altaf Hussain, who I am sure is certifiably insane.

At The time of the Arab Spring, Libya from a financial perspective, was seen as the greatest gain for the West, they could deplete it of its reserves, Make it financially dependent by giving it loads of Loans...and Charge billions of dollars for never ending construction and civil engineering projects.

And Egypt was seen as the greatest Loss because of the popularity of the Muslim Brothehood...Strange how things worked out.

Incidentally Iraq in the 1980,s was classified as a near developed country by the U.N. it was in the same category as, Malaysia and Portugal, and it had one best Medical and Education systems in the Middle East.
