It's amazing how many quotes from history's villains make so much sense about what is wrong with the world and who the real enemies of humanity are.

(Disclaimer- I'm not promoting these dictators. I'm just asking you to read what they had/have to say and notice that very often, it is the enemies of the international bankers that end up as the bad guys when history is recorded).


Man’s freedom is lacking if somebody else controls what he needs, for need may result in man’s enslavement of man.

Israel is a colonialist-imperialist phenomenon. There is no such thing as an Israeli people. Before 1948, world geography knew of no state such as Israel. Israel is the result of an invasion, of aggression.

Today there is a divide that we must acknowledge, and we must know who is deepening it. Perhaps it is colonialism—the enemy of Islam, the enemy of the Arabs, the enemy of the Persians—that is deepening it.… They have divided Islam into two Islams, and there came to be Shi'ite Islam and Sunni Islam. Are we Muslims, or are we Shi'ites and Sunnis?! For whose benefit is this? It is for the benefit of the "other" that we are speaking about, for the benefit of the enemy, for the benefit of colonialism

^Divide and Conquer.

9) Americans are good people. They have no aggressions against us and they like us as we like them. They must know I don't hate them. I love them.… I hear it is a complex society inside. Many Americans don't know about the outside world. The majority have no concern and no information about other people. They could not even find Africa on a map. I think Americans are good, but America will be taken over and destroyed from the inside by the Zionist lobby. The Americans do not see this. They are getting decadent. Zionists will use this to destroy them.

The above quote was from 1986, just look at America today, Gaddafi knew his stuff, he knew the truth. That quote to me is utterly terrifying in its accuracy of where America is in the 21st century. He was right, and he died being an enemy of the Zionists and the international bankers.

History however, will record him as an evil, mass murdering dictator.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad-

If the Europeans are telling the truth in their claim that they have killed six million Jews in the Holocaust during the World War II - which seems they are right in their claim because they insist on it and arrest and imprison those who oppose it, why should the Palestinian nation pay for the crime? Why have they come to the very heart of the Islamic world and are committing crimes against the dear Palestine using their bombs, rockets, missiles and sanctions. [...] The same European countries have imposed the illegally-established Zionist regime on the oppressed nation of Palestine. If you have committed the crimes so give a piece of your land somewhere in Europe or America and Canada or Alaska to them to set up their own state there.

Boy, does he have a point!

Some Western powers admit that they have killed a large part of Jewish population in Europe and founded the occupied regime in order to put right the wrong they had committed.

With deference to all nations and followers of divine religions, we are asking if this atrocity is true, then why the people of the region should pay for it by occupation of Palestinian lands and unending suppression of Palestinian people, by homelessness of millions of Palestinians, by destruction of their cities and rural areas and agricultural lands.

Why should they pay by fire, bullets and imposition of forces? And why should they pay by tolerating occupation of Islamic lands? Are the consequences of the establishment of this regime less than the Holocaust you are claiming? If there are doubts regarding the Holocaust, there is really no doubt regarding Palestinian disaster and Holocaust. The Holocaust in Palestine has persisted for more than sixty years.

The bullying powers use different excuses to prevent transfer of science and technology and progress of the nations of our region.

They regard our advancement as a threat to the corrupt Zionist regime. They do not allow the countries of the region to tread on the path to progress and advancement. They even oppose indigenous technologies in the Islamic countries and interpret any scientific advancement as a threat to the security of Qods occupier regime

Why shouldn't Iran have nuclear power? Why shouldn't they have the right to use their oil reserves for sale to other nations rather than domestic consumption because they aren't allowed nuclear energy?

If one knows history, they would see that before the 1979 revolution, when Iran had a puppet dictator, America was keen for Iran to have nuclear energy. They saw domestic consumption of oil as wasteful, hence nuclear energy would allow for the sale of more oil and more profit.

The quote also ties in to Africa, the richest continent on the planet, yet the people starve, can't get water and suffer horrendous wars. This happens because the West sets up conflict, use puppet dictators to keep the people of Africa from ever claiming the resources and riches that are rightfully theirs.

As long as TPTB are getting a good deal on the oil or gold, then they don't care how badly the people of that nation suffer. Which makes the notion of invading a country on humanitarian grounds, such as in Libya, truly sickening policy. On the one hand, they will fund a ruthless dictatorship, as in Mubarek's Egypt, yet invade another country based on humanitarian grounds and a 'right to protect.' It's disgusting!


In a letter to George W Bush, Ahmadinejad questions US foreign policy-

Can one be a follower of Jesus Christ... and have countries attacked? The lives, reputations and possessions of people destroyed and on the slight chance of the presence of a few criminals in a village, city, or convoy for example, the entire village, city or convoy set ablaze.

Or because of the possibility of the existence of WMDs in one country, it is occupied, around one hundred thousand people killed, its water sources, agriculture and industry destroyed, close to 180,000 foreign troops put on the ground, sanctity of private homes of citizens broken, and the country pushed back perhaps fifty years. At what price?... On the pretext of the existence of WMDs, this great tragedy came to engulf both the peoples of the occupied and the occupying country. Later it was revealed that no WMDs existed to begin with.

Who is the real enemy of humanity?

Don’t Latin Americans have the right to ask why their elected governments are being opposed and coup leaders supported? Poverty and hardship in large parts of Africa are preventing this from happening. Don’t they have the right to ask why their enormous wealth – including minerals – is being looted, despite the fact that they need it more than others?

^Ties in with the Africa question, where millions suffer needlessly as the land is 'looted' and the wealth that should belong to the African people is taken from them.

Those who oppose the Zionists and the international bankers become the bad guys, I'm not saying Gaddafi was a saint, but any crimes he committed pale in comparison to what the likes of Bush haved forced upon the world.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

Its not so much as history from the other side of but a collection of quotes from would be jailers and masters of humanity upset at their lack of power, playing one of the oldest cards in the political playbook of blaming the Jews for everything.

And to answer your question " Who is the real enemy of humanity? "

The people who you quoted in your post.

Care to explain how Gaddafi is worse than George Bush?

What did Gaddafi do, can you provide evidence?

Don't you think Iran's leader has a point about what Israel does to the Palestinians, or do you just turn a blind eye to everything they have to say?
