Open letter to: Mr
Michael Porter, Harvard Business Professor
I would like to
introduce myself to you as a normal and ordinary citizen of Libya. I feel I
have been offended and robbed by your association and partnership with the
dictator Gathaffi and his family.
I and millions of
my countrymen strongly believe that Gathaffi, his sons, tribe and cronies and
henchmen are criminal and illegitimate people as well as thieves of the Libyan
Your "Spin" or
interview with the BusinessWeek is the reason for writing to you this simple
message. Also, it is your justification for assisting a known criminal and
fraudster and I quote " [Despite the fact we are talking] about a ruler and
his son, in a sense, decision-making is widely distributed in this country.
People [consider Libya] a dictatorship, but it really doesn't work that way.
That is another reason for optimism."
• On the night on
31st August 1969, Gathaffi and a number military officers overthrown the
"Legitimate" government of Libya and appointed himself absolute ruler of Libya
by force. This act by Gathaffi and his acinfoplices is a "TREASON" and violated
the Libyan constitution and laws. No doubt in our minds of Gathaffi's
• To tighten his
grip on the unarmed Libyan people, Gathaffi and his criminal gangsters started
a terror campaign against the Libyans. Many Libyans were jailed and tortured
and murdered or as Gathaffi would like to say "Liquidated". Students were
tortured and hanged in their universities and in the public squares all over
Libya. Libyan dissidents were hunted and murdered in London, Rome, Athens,
Cairo, USA, Europe and all over the world.
• Well known
Libyan dissidents such as Mr Mansour Al Kykhia, Mr Matar and Mr Izzat El
Magaref have been kidnapped from neibouring Egypt and taken to Libya.
• Gathaffi was
responsible for the downing of Pan AM plane, the French UTA plane and the
Libyan Arab airplane which was shutdown over Tripoli. Many innocent people
died needlessly by criminal Gathafi.
confessed on the National Libyan TV to the massacre of Abu Saleem prison in
Tripoli where 1200 prisoners were machine gunned on the orders of Gathaffi
himself. The massacre was carried out by Abdalla Senussi, Gathafi's
brother-in-law and the chief of Gathaffi's Security Apparatus.
These are few
facts about the terror conducted by this criminal dictator against the Libyan
people and humanity at large as many people from all nationalities. The
decision for these crimes and everything else in Libya is Gathaffi's only.
Dictators by nature are selfish and rule absolutely.
For the last 38
years of Gathaffi's terror rule, the Libyan people have been deprived from
their freedom and the basic human rights. They have been deprived from proper
education, medical care and housing. He reduced the Libyan people to slaves
and subjected them to his sick psychopathic moods. He forced his laughable
green book theories on them. He formed criminal follower called them the
Revolutionary infomittees who are basically bunch criminals, henchmen and hit
The Libyan have
been struggling against Gathaffi and his criminal regime for a long time now
and they will not rest until they regain their country back and establish a
free democratic state ruled by patriotic Libyans elected through the ballot
box under the rule of law and the Libyan constitution and will never allow
criminals to rule them again.
We will pursue
countries and individuals who assist this criminal dictator and his family or
regime in the international courts to recover any monies and funds gained from
their services to Gathafi. We will treat this as an extension to criminal
activities and illegitimate gains.
Finally, I wish to
remind you that economic theories and modules will not work under
dictatorships. Good economy requires proper laws and regulations for it to
work and this is missing in Libya's Gathaffi. He has been ruling Libya through
"Organised Chaos" and "Crisis Management". Gathaffi will not survive in a
"Real" free state or proper market economy that would empower the individuals.
I and many Libyans
are very disappointed to see someone like Professor Michael Porter to work for
a Mafia Family or worse and insult our intelligence by justifying his
employment with criminal Gathafi for the sake of few millions dollars without
any consideration for any ethics or respect of the victims of Gathaffi.
