Brother Leader Comes to Georgetown

Talk about a political comeback.   Wasn’t it just a few years ago that Libya’s President Gaddafi was Public Enemy #1?  In the same group as Bin Laden and Co?  But tomorrow, Brother Leader will give a talk on the Washington DC campus of Georgetown University.  Well, sort of.   The talk will be virtual:

Muammar Al-Qaddafi, the Leader of the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Great Jamahiriya, will address the Georgetown University community and other guests via satellite in the ICC Auditorium. He will discuss his vision for a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, as outlined in his ‘White Book,’ and take questions from the audience.

All questions must be submitted via email in advance to ccasevents@georgetown.edu. THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING QUESTIONS IS 5:00PM FRIDAY, JANUARY 16.

And fortunately  if anyone is interested in brushing up on their ideology:

Lecture will be in Arabic; simultaneous translation will be provided via headset.

Copies of the ‘White Book’ will be available at the lecture.

This event is made possible by the generous support of Exxon Mobil.

Big ups to whatever Hoya is responsible for securing this talk.
