Naomi Litvin: Gadhafi on dissolving Switzerland, his sons, Israel, and the African refugees: His interview with Der Spiegel
my anti-.ly URL shortener awareness list which draws attention to the infiltration of Libyan sharia law into the world wide web. Coincidentally, in a rare media interview, Gadhafi waxes eloquently about his views on various topics. I am directly quoting the interview from Der Spiegel below.
picked up in Muammar Gadhafi's private jet and whisked off to the 'undeclared enemy' country of Libya. Once there, of course, they couldn't get their passports stamped, since Israelis are banned from entering Libya. But they enjoyed a gala dinner and schmooze which included Libya's ambassador to Jordan, who joined them from Amman. They all pow-wowed inside a giant Bedouin tent. On their return to Israel, the Arab Israeli's encountered some tzuris.
SPIEGEL Interview with Libyan Leader Moammar Gadhafi
SPIEGEL: Mr. Gadhafi, for years you repeatedly got into shouting matches with the Western world before making your peace with arch-enemy America four years ago. Now you have declared a holy war on tiny Switzerland, of all countries. Why?
Gadhafi: Switzerland is one country among many; sometimes you have trouble with one country, sometimes with another. We never had difficulties with Switzerland before. We used to appreciate it as a holiday destination. We used to appreciate its companies and its watches. But then Switzerland began to treat us badly. For example, the minaret issue and the publishing of nasty portrayals of the Prophet. It was necessary to draw a line with the Swiss. That is what I did in my speech in Benghazi to mark the Prophet's birthday.
