Of course this is a masterpiece of the historical film arts. For four generations the same regions have seen exploitation and conflict as western nations as vassals of banking interests export CONQUEST! Many of the thought control BUZZWORDS fall apart after this object lesson. First the Bush era lie they hate us for our freedoms. No they hate you because you not only murdered the people, you stole the resources and took their land and freedoms. We see why returning soldiers do not speak of their time in 'combat.' How could you confess these actions to your loved ones. We see why suicide is so prevalent among veterans. How do you cope with the guilt? We see the all pervasive lie that we're the 'good' guys and they're the 'bad' guys.

Deceptive propagandists are the enemies of human kind. God says were all sinners. Our leaders claim we are morally righteous saints. One is lying. I put my faith in God because he has witnessed the realities in the film. It is an object lesson in foreign relations and negotiation as well as moral courage. We are at an apex of human destiny. We can continue these false paradigms forever or break free. We have choice. If we break free from the greed and exploitation, we can find true and lasting peace among nations and peoples. It can start by changing the channel. I offer one here at the Cafe. You can see the difference. Christ said the truth sets us free. Why would we choose to be a slave?



Lion of the Desert is a 1981 Libyan historical action film starring Anthony Quinn as Libyan tribal leader Omar Mukhtar, a Bedouin leader fighting the Italian army in the years leading up to World War II and Oliver Reed as Italian General Rodolfo Graziani, who attempted to defeat Mukhtar. It was directed by Moustapha Akkad and funded by the government under Muammar Gaddafi.[1] Released in May 1981, the film was liked by critics and audiences[citation needed] but performed poorly financially, bringing in just $1 million net worldwide.


In 1929, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (Rod Steiger) is still faced with the 20-year long war waged by patriots in Libya to combat Italian colonization and the establishment of "The Fourth Shore"—the rebirth of a Roman Empire in Africa. Mussolini appoints General Rodolfo Graziani (Oliver Reed) as his sixth governor to Libya, confident that the eminently accredited soldier can crush the rebellion and restore the dissipated glories of Imperial Rome. Omar Mukhtar (Anthony Quinn) leads the resistance to the fascists. A teacher by profession, guerrilla by obligation, Mukhtar had committed himself to a war that cannot be won in his own lifetime. Graziani controls Libya with the might of the Italian Army. Tanks and aircraft are used in the desert for the first time. The Italians also committed atrocities: killing of prisoners of war, destruction of crops, and imprisoning populations in concentration camps behind barbed wire.

Despite their bravery, the Libyan Arabs and Berbers suffered heavy losses, their relatively primitive weaponry was no match for mechanised warfare; despite all this, they continued to fight, and managed to keep the Italians from achieving complete victory for 20 years. Graziani was only able to achieve victory through deceit, deception, violation of the laws of war and human rights, and by the use of tanks and aircraft.

Despite their lack of modern weaponry, Graziani recognised the skill of his adversary in waging guerrilla warfare. In one scene, Mukhtar refuses to kill a defenseless young officer, instead giving him the Italian flag to return with. Mukhtar says that Islam forbids him to kill captured soldiers and demands that he only fight for his homeland, and that Muslims are taught to hate war itself.

In the end, Mukhtar is captured and tried as a rebel. His lawyer states that since Mukhtar had never accepted Italian rule, he cannot be tried as a rebel, and instead must be treated as a prisoner of war (which would save him from being hanged). The judge rejects this, and the film ends with Mukthar being publicly executed by hanging.
