Atheists count too

- Wynberg

ETHICS, morals, IS, Boko Haram?

Where does Cllr Yagyah Adams (Letters, September 10) think the world would be (probably better) if atheists did not have conscience­s and did not live by society’s expectatio­ns and regard for other’s well being? One does not need a belief in the unbelievab­le. Sally Leslie “that Islam should become the religion of Europe and gave them copies of the Koran, after he lectured them for an hour on the freedoms enjoyed by women in Libya”.

Europe and the West did not listen and feared Gaddafi’s introducti­on of a gold dinar for Africa. Thus the West decided that killing Gaddafi was easier.

While Gaddafi was a son of a b***h of note, the notion of Africa shaking off the economic shackles was not to be tolerated by the imperial West. By killing Gaddafi, the scene was set for the current migration chaos in Europe.

Until his end, Gaddafi did not give up. In the months leading up to the military interventi­on on Libya, he called on African and Muslim nations to join together to create this new currency that would rival the dollar and euro. They would sell oil and other resources around the world only for gold dinars.
