Libyan Post Company burns $279M worth of Gaddafi stamps over ‘glorification’


by Linda Housman

January 2, 2013 – On December 25, the Libyan General Post Company burned all postage stamps that carried the image of Muammar Gaddafi or an image of his work or projects. The burned stamps, according to Saudi Gazette website 259,434,634 in total, were worth 341 million Libyan dinars, equaling $279 million. They were destroyed as a part of an ongoing so-called cleansing process by the occupation forces with the intent to rid the country of measures to “glorify” the Leader of the Al-Fateh Revolution and his achievements.

In a similar method of mind control in May last year, a law ridiculously titled “Criminalizing the glorification of the Tyrant”, was passed by the NATO-installed Libyan government. The law (Law 37) criminalized “any glorification of Muammar Gaddafi, his ideas, his regime and his sons” (Article 1) as well as “any publishing of news, propaganda or rumours which harm the February 17 Revolution” (Article 2). Article 3 declared that “Any rule which contravenes this law shall be overturned”. Violation of the Law, which eventually was revoked after lawyers and human rights groups strongly disapproved it in the media, could have been subject to a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Now let us assume just for the sake of the argument that the images of Muammar Gaddafi or his achievements on the postage stamps are nothing but an expression of plain glorification of the man and his projects and works. To be more specific, projects like the Great Man-Made River, which made Libya a source of agricultural abudance, capable of producing adequate food and water to supply its own needs and to share with neighbouring countries, and works like the Green Book which include definitions such as:

Democracy is the power of the people, not only the expression of the people. We declare that power belongs to the people. It is exercised directly, without intermediary or representatives in the popular congresses and the people’s committees.


We are liberated from any feudalism. The land is nobody’s property. Each person has the right to exploit it and to benefit from it by labour, agriculture or animal-keeping, throughout one’s life, that of one’s heirs, and within the limits of personal effort and the satisfaction of needs.

Let us assume for the sake of the argument that the images are not in any way affiliated with a sense of proudness, gratitude or solidarity the Libyans may have experienced during four decades of Gaddafi’s leadership which made Libya the most prosperous country of the African continent. Doing so we will encounter numerous other expressions of plain glorification across the globe that haven’t been burnt or otherwise eliminated so far. Among them are:

Blatant glorification of Zionism during the 2012 London Olympics:


Glorification of white-bearded man Santa, not without reason an anagram of Satan:


Overwhelming glorification of the Illuminati through occult symbols in corporate logos:


More glorification of the Illuminati through hidden symbols in American animated sitcom The Simpsons:


Another The Simpsons cartoon: glorification of Nazi Germany?


Glorification of a reptile either swallowing or giving birth to a human baby:



The American dollar: Glorification of Freemasonry, the Illuminati and the New World Order:



Glorification of Occultism in pop music and sports:


Glorification of Dutch Queen Beatrix a.k.a. Bilderberg Bea, who currently holds the third position in the Bilderberg Group hierarchy:


Once again, in this Orwellian world in which war is peace, slavery is freedom and ignorance is strength, the “glorification” of a great man whose mission it was to support the march of the Revolution towards complete popular authority and consolidation of the People’s Society where only the people control leadership, authority, wealth, and arms to realize the Society of Freedom appears to be something that should be banished or should carry a sentence of life imprisonment, while the “glorification” of the evil powers is not only widely accepted but also widely promoted.

Let’s get out of that world for a while, and enjoy the great postage stamps of the Libyan Jamahiriya and the great Libyan music in the videos below.
