Every Single Lies & Truths are Your Choice


The international media, influenced by the Americans, has successfully painted Gaddafi as a hard-core dictator, tyrant or whatever you want to call him. However, the media as usual has also failed to show the kind, giving Gaddafi we never heard of. Gaddafi unlike most dictators   has managed to show his humane side, the very side we dream of seeing in other dictators. 
I consider Libyans lucky to a certain extent and one wonders with the new democratic rule they cry for will it improve or worsen life for them. Yes, Gaddafi has spent millions of Libya`s money on personal ventures but is the average Libyan poor? We know others who take a country and destroy it until you feel like there is no hope of restoring this country… looting some prefer to call it. Did Gaddafi loot Libya in any way? 

Now let us get to the unknown facts about the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi: 


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, equipments, 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 irrigationproject, known as the Great Man-Made River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country.

what is FAMILY means to You...???

Read slowly and then look at ourselves.... read even slower when you reach the'FAMILY' column below  

F A M I L Y 

I ran into a stranger as he passed by, 
'Oh excuse me please' was my reply.

He said, 'Please excuse me too; 
I wasn't watching for you.' 

We were very polite, this stranger and I. 
We went on our way and we said goodbye. 

But at home a different story is told, 
How we treat our loved ones, young and old. 

Later that day, cooking the evening meal, 
My son stood beside me very still.

When I turned, I nearly knocked him down. 
'Move out of the way,' I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken. 
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken. 

While I lay awake in bed, 
God's still small voice came to me and said,

'While dealing with a stranger, 
common courtesy you use, 
but the family you love, you seem to abuse. 

Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.

Those are the flowers he brought for you. 
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue. 

He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise, 
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.' 

By this time, I felt very small, 
And now my tears began to fall. 

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
'Wake up, little one, wake up,' I said. 

'Are these the flowers you picked for me?' 
He smiled, 'I found 'em, out by the tree. 

I picked 'em because they're pretty like you. 
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue .' 

I said, 'Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today; 
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.' 
He said, 'Oh, Mom, that's okay. 
I love you anyway.'

I said, 'Son, I love you too, 
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.' 

Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company 
that we are working for could easily replace us in 
a matter of days. 
But the family we left behind will feel the loss 
for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more 
into work than into our own family, 
an unwise investment indeed, 
don't you think?
So what is behind the story? 

Do you know what the word FAMILY means?
