I am a Libyan who has lived half of his life in Libya, and the other half abroad, and I would just like to remind some of the Libyans that things were not always bad like nowadays. The revolution in its begining was a good thing for the country , before that we were controlled by the Italians and really did'nt have much rights compared to the Italians living in Libya. Libya even won awards such as Aviation awards in the late seventies for the punctuality of Libyan Arab Airlines, this was the time when Major Jalloud was the prime Minister and some sort of system was going on unlike nowadays.
I hear fellow Libyans say that "modeer" of that "sharikah" was the "baw-wab" of that "sharikah" last year or that "ameen" of education was the executioner a decade ago. I am sure there are a lot of well established good people in Libya and if the Ministers were educated people who had power to make changes, Libya would truly be the bride of the Mediterranean. I myself don't really care about the chair (korsy), but I do care about Libya and as a citizen (if this means anything) would like to express some suggestions.
Let us look at Lebanon, the war they had was devestating and we all know how bad it was and you know what the government after the war told their people lving abroad. They said: come back to Lebanon and rebuild its success like you have built yours abraod..... and look at Lebenon now. Good for you Lebanon!!!! I hope you can be an example for us Libyans.
A couple of months ago I saw on Dr. Ibrahim's page an e-mail from what the e-mail says by Seif al-Islam al-Qadhafi, and I hear all those rumours that him or his brother al-Saadi will be the next leader. A suggestion for both of them is to promote free thinking and to surround themselves with credible people. I see people like this fellow Fathi Lagha, who is best freinds with Seif, driving around in his long hair on his motorcycle in Gargaresh with this guy in the back waving a 9-millimeter gun like the cowboys in western movies. Come'on, give me a break. Libya is one disaster now that one wants to deal with, and every year I go back to Libya I find it worse than before.
Rabbik yester alaina.
