My parents lived in Libya for 10 years before they decided to move to Jordan for good in 1979. Here’s a story that happened to my mom that involved Qadafi.
My Mom used to go to the Benghazi University ( I don’t know it’s name) , she was sitting in a lecture hall attending a seminar of some sort. All of a sudden Gaddafi walks in with his entourage and starts lecturing them about something . My mom at the time was pregnant with me. You know how pregnant women go to the bathroom a lot, so my mom stood up to go to the bathroom, all of a sudden Gaddafi stops talking and then points at my mom and says ” Inti, wain ray7a, ug3ody” , then he signalled to his guards to block the doors and to not let anybody out, my mom was kind of scared, so she sat down promptly and he continued lecturing. Every once in a while he would pull out a camera from his pocket (when people are clapping) and he would start snapping pictures of the crowd.
How bizarre, eh? This story happened in 1976. No wonder my family left, it seemed he was getting weirder and weirder by the second.
My mom told me amazing things about how beautiful Lybia was and the beach. I can’t remember anything since I was 2 when my parents left, but I see the pictures and it looked very pretty.
