Al Fateh Resists White and Arab Supremacists: Imperialism will be buried in Africa

The North Atlantic tribes, under the banner of NATO, and their Arab flunkies are lining up for a

showdown in Sirte. Muammar Qaddafi and the Al Fateh revolutionary forces remain defiant and

have issued statements saying that they will never surrender. Their extraordinary resistance has

most certainly earned them a place in the history of modern warfare. Nowhere in modern history

have an army of 100,000 and a population of 6.5 million been able to resist such an

overwhelming and murderous invasion for so long. As I write NATO’s forces have surrounded

the small desert town of Bani Walid. Talks between the rebels and residents of the town have

broken down and the people of Al-Fateh have decided to stand and fight against all odds.

UN Resolution 1973 which authorized a ‘no fly zone’ was, without regard for international law,

which is not difficult since there is no international law, immediately turned into a regime change

operation. Under the pretext of protecting civilians, NATO has murdered thousands of Libyans

and other African civilians and now, as I write, they have surrounded the people of the small

desert town of Bani Walid to commit more murder. This war, under the banner of the UN, has

once and for all exposed this organization’s fraudulent and criminal nature. On the one hand

they have declared 2011 as the ‘International Year of People of African Descent’. It is more

aptly designated as the ‘International Year for the Destruction of Africa’.

Many in Libya, stunned after the fall of Tripoli, and the sheer criminality and barbarism of this

invasion, are only now regrouping and switching to guerilla war mode. There is no choice. Even

if Qaddafi were to leave Libya or be killed, this battle would continue because it is about much

more than one man, Muammar Qaddafi and the Libyan nation. The ideas of Muammar Qaddafi

and the Al Fateh revolution are not restricted to the geographical space known as Libya. The

ideology of the Third Universal Theory, as outlined in The Green Book, and the vision of a

United States of Africa has taken deep root in Africa and throughout the world. In fact, this

attack on Libya and Africa has only served to re-energize and galvanize revolutionary

Pan-African forces and other revolutionary movements worldwide.

The imperialists reckoned that this invasion, which was planned months ahead and launched in

February this year, would be over by March –a walk in the park so to speak. They needed it to

be swift for a number of reasons. Africa was on the brink of adopting Qaddafi’s idea of a single

currency in the form of an African gold dinar. This would have replaced European currencies as

the preferred trading currency for Africa’s resources including its vast oil and gold reserves.

In addition, Qaddafi had amassed the necessary funds for the establishment of three African

Banks –the African Monetary Fund (AMF) to be situated in Cameroon, The Central African

Bank to be situated in Nigeria and the African Investment Bank to be established in Libya. It

was this move, more than even Libya’s vast oil wealth that made Qaddafi and the Al Fateh

revolution a target for this invasion. Africa was on the brink of a huge and empowering

breakthrough, which, as far as the Western capitals were concerned, had to be prevented at

any cost.

‘The Babylon system is a vampire, sucking the blood of the sufferer…’

Bob Marley

On top of all this, the US and Europe are in deep economic crisis. They cannot afford to be

engaged in yet another costly and prolonged war. They have frantically introduced bail outs to

hold back the inevitable collapse of capitalism over the past years, however, these measures

were only a stop gap and they are now running out of time and ideas. Certainly, a carve-up of

Libya’s vast oil wealth as soon as possible is an attractive prospect, and the removal of

revolutionary Libya as an obstacle to the West’s re-colonization of the African continent has also

become a priority, since the continued plunder of African and ‘Third World’ resources remains a

non-negotiable ingredient for global capitalism’s survival.

The fact is that the contemporary global political economy could not have come into being

without the North Atlantic Tribes plunder of African resources and trade in captured Africans

over the past centuries. The unpaid labor of captured Africans laid the foundation for the

material basis of capitalist development. I have outlined in previous articles the extent of Africa’s

resources and the necessity of unhindered access to them if the Western capitals are to

continue on their current path of world domination. Qaddafi was an obstacle to this and

therefore has to be crushed at any cost.

‘Imperialism will be buried in Africa’

When the leaders of the North Atlantic Tribes, assisted by what Webster Tarpley has referred to

as the ‘rebel rabble’ in Benghazi, staged an incident in February 2011 as a pretext for a full

scale invasion, they did not envisage that this war would still be raging in September, and that

seven months on, NATO, the most sophisticated military machine known to humankind, could

have been prevented by an army of 100,000 and a population of 6.5 million people from

securing full control of Libya. The command structure and organization of the Al Fateh

revolutionary forces remains intact and they are not surrendering. Regardless of the outcome of

NATO’s invasion, this promises to be a protracted battle. Sooner or later, NATO will be

defeated, and as the great Pan-African leader, Sekou Toure predicted,
“Imperialism will be

buried in Africa”.

This war will inevitably spill over into other parts of Africa such as Chad, Niger and Mali. Over

the years, thousands of fighters from liberation movements in these countries benefited from the

support of the Al Fateh revolution.

The situation is a complex one. For example, in 2009 in Chad, an armed movement almost

succeeded in toppling President Idris Deby, who was only saved because the French stepped in

and bombed rebel positions. Deby, on the orders of the French, has now recognized the

National Transitional Council (NTC) or Council of Shame, as they are referred to in Libya. This

is the same Deby who received assistance from Qaddafi in the war of liberation he and others

waged against the French surrogate, Hisne Habre in the 80s and 90s. Qaddafi assisted Deby in

his war of liberation and many years later, was also able to mediate between Deby and the

Union of Resistance Forces that almost toppled Deby. The point is that Qaddafi’s influence and

long history in Africa is complex. Liberation movements throughout the continent look to him as

a source of strength and revolutionary guidance, and in many cases he has relationships with

Heads of State and the forces that oppose them. That is why he is called upon to mediate in

many conflicts in Africa because he is respected and listened to by all sides.

Africa’s political and social reality is an extremely complex and difficult one. As in Iraq, the West

is now mired in a prolonged and age old battle of which they have little understanding, and as

Frederick Douglas warned:
“a little knowledge is a dangerous thing”. Once again they have

launched a war that has opened a can of worms and that will inevitably reach deep into the

recesses of ancient issues and conflicts – right back in fact into the earliest Arab incursions into

North Africa.

The war in Libya is being fought on many realms - religious, ideological, racial and tribal. Throw

into this mix a long and painful history of Western colonialism, domination, deception and

destruction, colonial borders drawn up separating tribes and nations, and the resulting web of

intertwined and complex political deals and compromises up and down the continent, in the

midst of the chaos and mistrust caused by Africa’s plight and you have an explosive situation for

which there is no quick fix or swift outcome.

Beyond their plans to subjugate and plunder, NATO has little concern about the outcome for

Libya and Africa. Even with the battle raging and no one side able to declare full control of the

entire country, the imperialists and their Arab and African flunkies met in Paris to carve up

Libya’s wealth, in a disgusting display of the greed that drives them. Merkel, who had not

supported the invasion snuck in, tail between her legs, to beg for a slice of the pie and Russia

hurried to recognize the NTC in order to get at least a piece of the action.

The Nature of the Beast

There are many lessons here for any nation-state who thinks that they can perform a balancing

act between seeking their right to self-determination and establishing détente with the West. At

an international conference hosted by the World Mathaba in Tripoli many years ago, in

reference to Africa’s battle with the West, the Hon Minister Louis Farrakhan warned us,
“that we

are dealing with the beast and you cannot appeal to the beast, since the beast has no heart and

no ability to reason”.

Libya had tried to do just that – reason with the beast. Qaddafi had set out to bury all hostilities

with the West in order to focus on Libya’s national development which had suffered after almost

a decade of unjust sanctions. No one understands more than Qaddafi how constant conflict with

the West can hinder a nation from realizing its revolutionary goals and objectives. He needed to

get the sanctions off Libya’s back in order to proceed with not only Libya’s national development

but also to raise the huge amount of capital needed to back the Pan-African project.

Qaddafi even voluntarily gave up his program for the development of nuclear weapons and

urged all other countries, including Russia and the US, to do the same. Saif Qaddafi, in a recent

interview, has admitted that there are many Libyans who blame him for this invasion, claiming

that his ideas of tolerance and relationship building with the West were naïe and dangerous. It

seems that some in Libya were so convinced that they had entered into a new phase of déente

with the West, that even Libya’s military was not upgraded as it should have been. The money

was instead earmarked for development projects in Libya and throughout Africa.

We have all seen the footage flashed across our TV screens of Qaddafi being embraced by

Blair, Berlusconi, Sarkozy etc. In the African and Arab traditions, a person’s handshake and

word counts for something. Qaddafi clearly did not understand the nature of this beast. After all,

unlike the Africans in America and other parts of the Diaspora, his contact with them has been

limited. It is no accident that the greatest exploration of White supremacy and the bizarre

psychology that underlies it is best articulated by the Afrocentric scholars in the US. Where

better to understand the Beast than from its very belly? For a scholarly and insightful account of

what drives White supremacy and their continued blood thirsty domination of this planet, one

should refer to the works of Drs Bobby E. Wright, Frances Cress Welsing and Marimba Ani

among others.

For his part, Saif himself has said that he accepts the criticism and agrees that his approach

was naïe. It was he who pushed for the release of many former Al Qaeda operatives from

prison, in a move consistent with the idea of restorative justice. They were released with the

understanding that they would air their ideological differences not through violent means, but

through the democratic institutions set up for political deliberation in Libya –the People’s

Committees and People’s Congresses. This was an attempt to reintegrate these Libyans,

known as the ‘returnees’ or ‘Afghanis’, back into Libyan society. One of those released,

Abdelhakim Belhaj, has now been appointed by the NTC as Tripoli’s new security chief. Belhaj

is one of Al Qaeda’s top military commanders, sent back to Libya from Afghanistan by the US.

‘In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends’

Dr Martin Luther King

Although many worldwide have come out clearly in support of Muammar Qaddafi and the Al

Fateh revolution, one of the hardest things to bear over the past months has been to watch

some cower in the face of this imperialist onslaught, either by ‘jumping ship’ or remaining silent.

Betrayal is always hard to bear, but especially because it highlights one of the reasons why the

imperialists are able to knock us off, one at a time.

Some progressive and revolutionary movements have failed to openly defend the shared goals

and objectives they agreed to as members of the World Mathaba. In doing so, they have

allowed Libya to be singled out for punishment and destruction by imperialist forces. They were

happy to receive whatever assistance they could get, but remain shamefully silent when Libya

needs defending. There is an African saying in the Caribbean –
“ingratitude is worse than


The Palestinian organizations are a tragic example. During the long years of the Palestinian

struggle, every faction of the PLO had an office in Tripoli, from the pro-Syrian Al Saiqa to the

Marxist oriented Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and every group in between. To

date, not one of these organizations have raised their voice against this invasion of Libya,

despite accepting millions of dollars of assistance when their backs were up against the wall.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, without even knowing what was happening on

the ground in Libya, jumped the gun with an opportunistic condemnation of the Al Fateh

revolution, while failing to utter a word on what is taking place in Syria.

Muammar Qaddafi’s revolutionary politics is grounded in the Islamic injunction, that
“one must

want for others what one wants for oneself”.

He therefore saw it as the duty of liberated zones to extend assistance to all those struggling for

freedom and self-determination. During the past forty-two years, the Al Fateh revolution never

compromised this principle, even when changing conditions and situations both at the regional

and global level, forced Libya to adapt its strategies and tactics. Despite the immense pressure

put on this small nation-state, Al Fateh helped all.

What set the World Mathaba aside from other revolutionary and progressive internationals was

that it neither restricted its membership to a particular ideological orientation nor limited its

assistance to a specific region or to movements and organizations that were of geo-political

significance to Libya. As a result, the World Mathaba brought together forces spanning the

entire progressive ideological spectrum, including Indigenous movements throughout the world,

assisting all of them in their struggles, without demanding any adherence to the precepts of the

Libyan revolution.

This truly pluralist outlook was proof that assistance provided by Libya transcended Libya’s

national interest, and was given in accordance with what Qaddafi truly believed to be their duty

before God. The gains made by many members as a direct result of the assistance they

received from the World Mathaba, and the potential for future victories, shaped the extreme

hostility of imperialist forces and their desperate actions against Libya over the years to this sad

day, when they have been forced to pay the ultimate price.

While the AU has refused to officially recognize the NTC, it is tragic that 20 African governments

could have been pressured into accepting the NTC as the legitimate government in Libya, even

while there is still fierce resistance being waged against NATO and the NTC throughout the


This, after all Qaddafi and Libya has done for Africa, and knowing that the NTC are declared

Arab supremacists, who under NATO’s cover have hunted down and murdered thousands of

Black Libyans and African migrant workers.

These African governments must be aware that Libya’s ex-Minister of Justice, Mustafa Jalil,

leader of the Transitional Council, and other Libyan officials who have defected to the rebels,

were among those who condoned brutal attacks on Africans in a series of incidents a few years

ago, when Nigerians and Ghanaians were being attacked in the streets of Tripoli. This was an

attempt to embarrass Qaddafi and tarnish his Pan-African credentials, thereby undermining

Libya’s Pan-African project.

Jalil is known by revolutionary and progressive organizations throughout Africa as a racist. His

so-called Transitional National Council, in accordance with their Arab supremacist mindset,

rejects Libya’s African identity. It is bewildering and unfathomable to me that African leaders

could have gone to the Imperialist Carve-up Conference in Paris and sat in a room with White

and Arab supremacists while they plotted the looting of Libya now and inevitably, the

re-colonization of Africa –one nation-state at a time. But what else can we expect from these

neo-colonial flunkies?

In a recent article, African commentator, Reason Wafawarova observed with disgust:

“The current African Union is a bunch of cowardly bucolic boofheads totally mesmerised by

Western donor funding. They look pretty scared as they seem all determined to avoid angering

the Westerners. What an unthinking lot of hopeless traitors!

It is just as good that they are no longer called the Organization of African Unity - that fiery club

founded by strong characters like Kwame Nkrumah, Haile Selassie, Muammar Qaddafi, Milton

Obote, Kenneth Kaunda, Julius Nyerere, Jomo Kenyatta, and Gamal Abdel Nasser, later to be

Al Fateh will never die: Don’t mourn – Organize

This September, revolutionary and progressive forces worldwide salute the astounding

achievements and victories of the Al Fateh revolution and the historical and unprecedented

resistance of the Libyan revolutionary forces in confronting NATO’s killing machine. While it is

necessary to identify the traitors and the unprincipled amongst us so that we know them for

future reference, it is important not to lose sight of the incredible resistance that has formed

itself into a cohesive global movement in the space of a few months. The revolutionary

governments of Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Zimbabwe have been in the vanguard of a

global movement of the courageous and steadfast. From governments to progressive and

revolutionary organizations and individuals, there has been a resounding resistance and an

outpouring of solidarity and support for Muammar Qaddafi, the courageous Libyan armed

forces, including the popular militias, and the Libyan people.

We say to hell with the Transitional National Council –known as the Council of Shame. Imagine

you have invited the enemies of Africa, Islam and oppressed humanity into Libya, and now,

hiding behind NATO’s bombs, you dare to challenge Muammar Qaddafi and the Al Fateh

revolutionary leadership to a final showdown in Sirte. What you have done will come back to

haunt you.

The look on the faces of people in Tripoli tells its own story. Libyans walked to this year’s Eid

prayers in stony silence, stunned by the new and bizarre reality of the occupation of their land

by NATO and Al Qaeda terrorists.

Lyse Doucet of the BBC, finally, after seven long months, gave a moment’s interview to a

Qaddafi supporter. He was standing in a clinic in the Bousalim district of Tripoli, surrounded by

debris. Bousalim suffered heavy NATO air strikes since it is a well known Qaddafi stronghold.

Many civilians lost their lives. The man told Lyse Doucet that the whole of Bousalim supported

Qaddafi. He stated that if the rebels were ushering in a democracy then why can’t Bousalim fly

whatever flag they wanted. Lyse Doucet replied that the National Transitional Council had

promised that there would be no revenge killings. At this point the man laughed out loud and

told Doucet that his neighbours had already been rounded up and taken away. Under the

banner of NATO and the United Nations, Libya has been turned into a killing field.

Blood on their Hands

The corporate media have been accessories to this invasion, and I deliberately use the word

accessories, because BBC, CNN and Al Jazeera have most definitely relinquished their right to

name themselves news organizations. They have in fact been contracted as ‘weapons of mass

deception’, consciously collaborating with NATO to present a fictitious version of events. They

have fought this war alongside NATO –‘embedded’ (in bed with) NATO all the way. Their

agitation and propaganda (agit/prop) techniques have been a major weapon in NATO’s armor

and there can be no doubt that they are accomplices to the war crimes committed in Libya.

They all have blood on their hands.

Al Jazeera has been the most rabid because, like BBC and CNN, they too dance to the tune of

their master, the Emir of Qatar, who has championed this invasion of Libya. It is no secret that

Libya is crawling with Qatari troops.

George Orwell, 1984

The Psych-ops aspect of this war reached whole new levels of deception. Investigative

journalist, Webster Tarpley has cited irrefutable evidence that a set of Tripoli’s Green Square

was constructed in Doha and people dressed as Libyan rebels were filmed taking over Green

Square. This was the fake footage zoomed into living rooms all over the world. The zone we

have entered is a frightening one, however, the enemy’s Psych-ops is a lot less effective in the

age of the internet. While we must note those media organizations that have been totally

compromised so that their crimes can be catalogued for future reference, we must also

acknowledge the huge and impressive fight back staged by truth warriors all over the globe.

The media lies have been countered with a powerful campaign on the worldwide web. Serbian

hackers went to war with anti-Qaddafi sites, closing them down as quickly as they appeared.

Pakistani websites carried information on the fake Green Square constructed in Doha. Rappers

posted videos calling Qaddafi an African hero. Minister Louis Farrakhan’s powerful

presentations are all available on the net, allowing people to tune out of the mainstream lies,

and articles are everywhere detailing the truth. Independent news sources such as Pan-African

Newswire, Black Agenda Report, Final Call, Modern Ghana, The Nigerian Voice, Ethiopia.org,

Pravda, Mathaba News Agency, Centre for Research on Globalization, New Dawn Magazine,

San Francisco Bay View and many others have been in the vanguard of providing a

counter-attack to the corporate media’s campaign of lies and deception.

On this, the 42nd anniversary of the Al Fateh revolution, the International Movement of

Revolutionary Committees is calling on all truth warriors to continue to mobilize and organize in

whatever ways are available to you because, despite what the deceivers are saying, this battle

has only just begun. Thanks again to the age of internet, Qaddafi himself was able to issue a

statement recently addressing his supporters throughout the world. In it he stated:

“While we fight to defend our nation, you fight on the battle field of truth, for the pen is mightier

than the sword. Some of you arrived to our western border, but had to return... the way is clear,

but NATO will not allow for peace. They fear the example of the Great Jamahiriya. They can

destroy our physical achievements but they cannot destroy the truth. The more they try the

more we will be victorious. Victory is with the people, never with the oppressors.

Prepare traps for the invaders. You must defend your corners.”

In a recent article titled
‘Message From A Black African: Our Brother Muammar Qaddafi Treated

All Equal And Now They Are After Him’,
Mbarika Kazingizi has called on

us to put aside any and all differences we may have and unite to defeat NATO:

“We cannot start to think about these things (our differences) now that the fight is going on. We

have to ACT now. Unite the Pan-Africanists, Rastafarians, African traditional Apostles,

Farrakhan's African-American Muslims and North African Muslims, to Speak with One Voice on

this issue - condemn NATO and fight back together NOW. Malcolm X followers, Black Panthers,

Ni'abhingi warriors, all youths must rally together.”

As sad and bitter as we may feel at the continued attempts to murder Muammar Qaddafi, the

mass murder of so many Libyans and at the destruction of Libya, this is not a time to mourn but

rather a time to organize as never before, on a global level. Let us make Sekou Toure’s

prediction a reality.

You can kill the man, you can exterminate the revolutionary forces, but you can’t kill an

idea whose time has come…

And finally this September, we salute Muammar Qaddafi’s greatest contribution to the world –the revolutionary ideology known as The Third Universal Theory. It took a revolutionary thinker

like Qaddafi, who was not conceptually incarcerated by the reductionism of Marxism and

liberalism, to go beyond the parameters of European political theory.

Qaddafi discarded the false divide between religion and political science, the secular and the

sacred, faith and reason, and was thereby able to articulate a paradigm that is holistic/

integralist, reflecting a total reality –an African reality. Quite simply, secular European discourse

is unable to comprehend and advance ideology such as the Third Universal Theory, precisely

invites us to finally reject and move beyond the vulgar economism and materialism of the

Eurocentric ideologies of Marxism and liberal capitalism, which were thrust upon Africa and the

‘Third World’ as part of the imperialist project.

willing to die. NATO can invade with their Arab flunkies and roll back some of Al Fateh’s

material gains but they can never kill the revolutionary consciousness that has taken root. It is

Surah Al Fateh, Ayah: 1, Al Qu’ran

Forty-two years ago this September, a 27 year old army captain, Muammar Qaddafi, led a small

group of revolutionaries, including Abdul Salam Jaloud, Mustapha Karoubi, Kweldi Hemidi and

Abubakar Jaber Younis, in a bloodless coup against the corrupt regime of King Idris, ushering in

what became known as the Al Fateh revolution, named after the Qu’ranic surah Al Fateh (The


And this revolution did indeed herald a victory over the repression, poverty, ignorance and

backwardness that had stalked this land throughout King Idris’s nineteen year reign. In recent

months, facts and figures have been provided in articles written by people from every corner of

the globe, cataloging the outstanding achievements of the Al Fateh revolution. The brilliant

Guyanese economist, Dr Rawle Farley, offers an in-depth account of the visionary leadership

and outstanding economic achievements of this revolution in his excellent work titled,

The Exceptional Third World Economy’.

Suffice to say, under the leadership of this revolutionary council, Libya went from being one of

the poorest nations in the world to being one of the most developed – economically, politically

and morally. Libya is one of a handful of ‘Third World’ nations that can proudly claim to have

actually thrown off the yoke of colonialism and neo-colonialism. They have no foreign masters.

Muammar Qaddafi and the Libyan revolutionary forces dance to nobody’s tune.

It is these Free Unionist Officers, 42 years later and now in their 70s, who are being hunted

down like animals by NATO and their hirelings, forced to watch their nation destroyed. It is an

ugly display of the barbarism which rules this world. For revolutionaries the world over this is a

particularly devastating and horrifying phase, in what is a long and protracted struggle that will

take us all the way to the final conflict on this earth. However, we are not helpless, even in the

face of the immense power of the North Atlantic tribes. Their continued domination of this earth

is not a given. Like all Empires they will fall. We must together gather our strength, inspired by

Libya’s resistance, and continue to organize and mobilize in whatever ways are available to us.

As the Brother Leader said ‘we must defend from our corner’.

There can be no doubt that the Western Empire is on the verge of total collapse. The speed at

which White supremacy disintegrates will directly correlate with our ability to organize

international revolutionary opposition to the evil they are perpetrating in Libya and worldwide. If

history has taught us anything then it has taught us that the strength of White supremacy lies in

its ability to unite across class, nation-state and ideologies when it comes to furthering their

sinister agenda. Tony Blair from Britain's Labour Party had no difficulty uniting with George

Bush from the US Republican Party to attack Iraq, though the two ostensibly adhere to different

political ideologies. It has been so for centuries. Despite the fact that the Dutch, French,

Spanish and English were actually at war with each other in Europe, they were able to fully

unite when it came to putting down the uprisings and revolutions of captured Africans on their

plantations in the Caribbean.

Let us now take heed of the Brother Leader's message and unite and organize once and for all

to realize our objective - to deal a final and decisive blow to imperialism and neo-colonialism.

Let us put aside our differences in order to deal with the primary contradictions that we face.

The power of the people united is not a cliché or an empty slogan - it is ours - if only we can

make the psychological transition necessary to possess the power.

We can be sure that long after the likes of Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy and Jalil are forgotten,

the history books will still tell the story of the courageous Bedouin, who stood up for all of

oppressed humanity, and in the year 2011 was targeted for extermination by one of the most

powerful and barbaric ‘Coalition of Demons’ in human history. If freedom fighters all over the

world stand up with him as he and his noble forces resist, dealing NATO a decisive blow in

Africa, such an historic event will be remembered for all time. We are the makers of history –the power is in our hands.

This September we say to you Brother Leader –May Allah be with you and protect you and

know that the revolutionary gains and the ideology of the Al Fateh revolution will live forever!
