Mai jos veți citi testamentul lăsat de liderul libian Muammar Gaddafi înaintea uciderii sale.
Fiindcă penultimul paragraf din testamentul colonelului Gaddafi se adresează tuturor oamenilor liberi care trăiesc în această lume, am considerat nimerită publicarea traducerii în limba engleză a acestui document. Respectivul paragraf l-am boldat.
The last will of Muammar Gaddafi
Here is the English translation:
"This is my will. I, Muammar bin Mohammad bin Abdussalam bi
Humayd bin Abu Manyar bin Humayd bin Nayil al Fuhsi Gaddafi, do swear
that there is no other God but Allah and that Mohammad is God's Prophet,
peace be upon him. I pledge that I will die as Muslim.
Should I be killed, I would like to be buried, according to
Muslim rituals, in the clothes I was wearing at the time of my death and
my body unwashed, in the cemetery of Sirte, next to my family and
I would like that my family, especially women and children,
be treated well after my death. The Libyan people should protect its
identity, achievements, history and the honourable image of its
ancestors and heroes. The Libyan people should not relinquish the
sacrifices of the free and best people.
I call on my supporters to continue the resistance, and fight any foreign aggressor against Libya, today, tomorrow and always.
Let the free people of the world know that we could have
bargained over and sold out our cause in return for a personal secure
and stable life. We received many offers to this effect but we chose to
be at the vanguard of the confrontation as a badge of duty and honour.
Even if we do not win immediately, we will give a lesson to
future generations that choosing to protect the nation is an honour and
selling it out is the greatest betrayal that history will remember
forever despite the attempts of the others to tell you otherwise."
