In a 2 week survey i did on my Blog, Omar Al Mukhtar from Libya won as the most favorite Arab hero in the 20th Century with 29% of the votes.
To tell you the truth i too believe he is the best. The reason for that is that he was a normal man who lived with his head high and died the same way. Never giving in, no matter what the odds were, he believed Libya was his land and it is duty as a Libyan and a Muslim to go out for Jihad against the invaders (Italians).
One of my favorite movies was Omar Al Mukhtar by the late director Mustafa Al Akkad. That was a great movie!
