Dear brother Dr. Ibrahim and fellow Libyans,
I have some comments on the letter of "engineer from Tripoli" who stated that he visits Libya every year and finds the country at the top edge of high technology and freedom !!. I wonder how many people will believe this. Either that he does not reside outside Libya and therefore does not know how many people in the outside world are living in a free environment without interference or being arrested or called stray dogs because of difference in opinion or adherence to the Islamic rulers or obviously he defends the regime.
What kind of technology is the engineer talking about ? did you visit the laboratories in the engineering faculty at al-Fateh university ? do you know what kind and how old is the equipment they have ? do you know what level of research if at all is conducted at this and other faculties ? do you know that thousands of students were enrolled this year and previous few years without adequate qualifications to the faculties of Medicine , pharmacy and others because "the Leader" ordered that any student be allowed to enter any faculty he or she wants ? did you think for a minute that there are no means to accommodate all these students ? the result is full lecture rooms and more than half of the students are left out. Is this what you call modern and advanced education ?
It seems obvious that you are one of the people who benefited from the revolution and I would not be surprised if you are Hanibal or "Hamdi" who called during the ANN program about Libya and identified himself as a student from the engineering faculty. We heard enough from you about Libyan people governing themselves, Libyans do not accept this any more, they know what's right and what's wrong because everything is so clear to everybody.
Can you talk about teachers and employees who did not get their salaries for months while the millions are being spent for Africa and for the leader's trips there ? Can you talk about the money spent by the leader's family in England, Spain, Austria and elsewhere ? Can somebody in the "People's committees" discuss the oil imports ? If you believe in freedom, why don't you let anybody speak up and raises his voice and expresses his ideas and let the Libyan people decide what's best for them ?
I wish also to congratulate the Libyan groups for their meeting hoping they forget all the previous experiences and focus on the future for a better Libya inshaalah.
