Mme Ulstein, who originates from Algeria and lived for several years in Libya in the 1980’s states: “Many don’t know the truth about Gaddafi’s Libya. It was the richest country in Africa and Gaddafi was not trying to kill his people. These were media lies and we all know it.”
She says: “In Libya under Muammar Gaddafi, education was free for everyone, grants were given to those who wished to study abroad, health care was free, gasoline and other necessities subsidized Each family had their own car, living a healthy life comparing to the other countries. It’s thanks to the Libyan people that the tourism went so well in Tunisia.”
“Gaddafi was supporting the African states, he was giving a big hand to Nelson Mandela in South Africa. He helped the Palestinians in Israel. He was a revolutionary person. He was against unfairness, against discrimination based on color. He was for equality and justice. But the West completely demonized him.”
The Herland Report Scandinavian news site and TV channel on YouTube has millions of readers/viewers yearly, featuring leading free thinkers, intellectuals, authors and activists on foreign policy, Western cultural decay, religion, values and the need for international justice and respect for national sovereignty.
The Herland Report believes in freedom of speech and its editorial policy resides above the traditional Left vs Right paradigm which we believe has lost its relevance and ability to describe the current driving forces in Western politics.
We regularly feature a variety of opinion and analysis from a number of commentators from across the political spectrum, free from the censoring political correctness that now permeate Western media.
The Herland Report is founded and hosted by Hanne Nabintu Herland, a Scandinavian historian of comparative religions, bestselling author, commentator and TV producer, known from the media for sharp analysis and fearless speech.
Herland has for many years written extensively in leading newspapers on a variety of issues and appeared as a guest on a variety of TV shows. She was born and raised in Africa, has lived in Europe. South America and in the Middle East, and travelled extensively in Asia.
