Wait, there is one more thing. We say we love Nelson Mandela, right? When Mandela visited Gadhafi, he was quoted as saying “Those who object to my visiting Libya have no morals, and I will not join them because I have morals. Qadhafi is my friend. He helped us at a time when we were alone. And the ones who are stopping us from coming here were helping our enemies at that time."
Gadhafi wasn’t perfect but who is? When analyzing his life, I think about a few tweets that Minister Farrakhan posted on Aug. 30. He tweeted“There is no leader in this world who was or is loved by all. Allah puts on His Scale the weight of our good and our evil. This is how He judges and He is judging today.”
There is much more good that Gadhafi did, but the question is do you really care?
