Gaddafi to Baraka Hussein Abu Oumama: “Stop the Bombings… And Good Luck in the Elections”
Colonel Gaddafi sent a letter to his
Muslim friend President Baraka Hussein Abu Oumama yesterday. The Libyan leader asked Baraka to stop the bombings. He also wished him good luck in the elections.
The Daily Mail reported:
Despite claiming that Libya had been hurt more ‘morally’ than ‘physically’ by the NATO-backed campaign, Gaddafi called on Obama to end the war against ‘a small people of a developing country.’
Bizarrely, in a seeming denial of the country’s current rebellion, the letter is signed ‘Mu’aumer Qaddaffi, Leader of the Revolution.’
The letter, composed in formal but stilted English, states: ‘Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama, your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato (NATO) would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair.
‘Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame.’
A later section says the NATO action should be called off in the interests of ‘serving world peace … Friendship between our peoples … and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror.
Gaddafi also wished Obama good luck in the elections.
