MEDIA ADVISORY, April 8, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Thirty-Nine years to the day the February 2011 uprising erupted in Libya, Idi Amin and Moammar Gadhafi began a friendship that was based on the Arab-Israeli Conflict. In late March 2011, Tamale Mirundi, the spokesperson for Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni is reported to have stated that Moammar Gadhafi is welcome to seek refuge in Uganda which comes as no surprise to people in the know, because Moammar Gadhafi has had ties to Uganda since 1972.
Margaret Akulia's book series titled Idi Amin and Moammar Gadhafi, Lessons from the Story delves into the history of Moammar Gadhafi and his relationship with Idi Amin. It reveals intimate details and lets readers see the relationships, conversations, and events that cut to the core of the Libyan conflict and Moammar Gadhafi's violent reluctance to lose control of Libya. The series also provides historical insights into the African Union and Arab League and the reasons these organizations should have spearheaded an intervention in Libya's crisis instead of remaining on the sidelines.
Idi Amin ruled the East African country of Uganda from January 25, 1971 to April 11, 1979 and left a controversial and conflicted legacy, as depicted in various movies including "The Last King of Scotland" starring Oscar-winning film star Forest Whitaker and "Raid on Entebbe," a 1977 TV movie based on the hostage-rescue mission undertaken by the Israeli Elite Special Forces in 1976, to rescue Israeli hostages held by pro-Palestinian hijackers at Entebbe Airport in Uganda, East Africa. In 1979, a combined force of the Tanzania Peoples' Defence Force and Ugandan exiles operating through Tanzania ousted Idi Amin from power in Uganda and Moammar Gadhafi whisked him out of Uganda in a special Libyan plane as recounted by Jaffar Amin who is acutely aware of the spiritual dimension to the Arab-Israeli Conflict.
Winning that Conflict might be one of the reasons Moammar Gadhafi is "fighting to the death" to hang onto Libya's vast oil resources because Africa is like an ongoing game of chess. Some strategic well-planned moves will win you a kingdom and others can result in rebellion and an overthrow of the status quo. Sometimes Moammar Gadhafi seems to be on the losing side of that game of chess but what will happen if he wins?
