    Default Qaddafi Calls for Jihad on Switzerland !

    TRIPOLI, Libya — Libya's leader called for a jihad, or holy war, against Switzerland on Thurday because of its ban on mosque minarets — escalating a long-running diplomatic feud between the two countries.

    Muammar Qaddafi also urged Muslims everywhere to boycott Swiss products and to bar Swiss planes and ships from the airports or seaports of Muslim nations.



    "Those who destroy God's mosques deserve to be attacked through jihad, and if Switzerland was on our borders, we would fight it," Qaddafi was quoted by Libya's official news agency JANA as saying. He spoke before a gathering marking the birthday of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad in the Libyan city of Benghazi.

    Swiss Foreign Ministry spokesman Lars Knuchel declined to comment on Qaddafi's call for a holy war against the neutral Alpine republic.

    In November, Swiss voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on minarets, in a controversial decision that put Switzerland at the forefront of a European backlash against a growing Muslim population.

    Muslim groups in Switzerland and abroad condemned the vote as biased and anti-Islamic and business groups warned that the decision could damage relations with Muslim nations and wealthy Islamic investors who bank, travel and shop there.

    Any Muslims who deal with Switzerland are "apostates," Qaddafi added.

    Muslims comprise about 6 percent of Switzerland's 7.5 million people. Many are refugees from the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s and about one in 10 actively practices the religion, the government says.

    Anxieties about growing Muslim minorities have rippled across Europe in recent years, leading to legal changes in some countries. France has banned headscarves in schools and is considering legislation to ban head-to-toe coverings for women. Some German states have introduced bans on head scarves for Muslim women teaching in public schools.

    But the Swiss ban on minarets was one of the most extreme reactions.

    Relations between Libya and Switzerland turned icy after Qaddafi's son, Hannibal, and his wife were arrested in a luxury hotel in Geneva in 2008 for allegedly beating up their servants.

    Qaddafi was released after two days, but Libya retaliated by recalling diplomats from Switzerland, taking its money out of Swiss vaults and interrupting oil shipments to the Swiss.

    In 2009, former Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz apologized in Libya and agreed to possible compensation claims. But Switzerland backed out of the deal after two Swiss businessman were blocked from leaving Libya. One left earlier this week after more than 19 months in the Swiss Embassy in Tripoli. The other has been convicted of violating residency laws and remains in Libyan custody.

    Earlier this month, Tripoli responded to a Swiss travel ban on Qaddafi, his family and ministers by banning citizens of 25 European countries from traveling to Libya.

    The visa restrictions threatened lucrative work for Europeans in Libya's booming oil and gas industries, but mediation from Italy and Spain has eased the constraints.

    Go for it Muammar. Switzerland only has a population of 7.5 million. Easy.

    Oh, btw. There are some pretty high mountains around it and absolutely everyone is armed to the teeth.

    Have fun.

    MoMo is still alive? I thought that lunatic had already croaked. Why would he declare war on Switzerland of all places?

    Why doesn't the rest of the world just stop any dealings with Libya? That would take care of this guy pretty quickly. Seriously... There is enough oil and gas elsewhere to get through the 6 months it would take for the fine people of Libya to overthrow this fine leader when the world stops playing nice in the sand-box.

    Just think!! If Hannibal had been successful in sacking Rome some 2000+ years ago, Carthage/Libya could have been a "Super-power." It may even be relevant today. Does Qaddafi have any elephants in his army? If so, look out Switzerland.

    I actually noticed how quiet he's been since 9/11. Pretty sure he tucked his head in the sand and decided he wasn't going to do ANYTHING to bring US attention to him. What we did to Saddam probably didn't help him sleep at night either. I was against the timing of Iraq, and it's been the mess I thought it would be in the first place, but one of the few good things that have come out of it is the clear message sent to idiots like this guy.

    So now he picks on...Switzerland. LOL. What, have Swiss banks started cooperating more on terrorist investigations recently? If they have, there's your answer...

    You are pretty bad off when you pick a fight with a country that even Hitler didn't try to take over.

    I mean what do the Swiss do besides make cakes for Little Debbies and hot chocolate?

    Qaddafi is not wrong in his disgust of the decision. It's pretty shameful.

    Europe is gonna get very ugly in time - the amount of hate aimed at Muslims if frightening.

    It was pretty disgusting when he welcomed the Lockerbie bomber back home as a frigging hero, too.

    It's also pretty disgusting how silent the peace-loving Muslims of the free world are whenever the radical minorities of their religion commit acts of terror.

    And it's damned disgusting when the brave people in the oppressed Muslim countries dare to speak out against their insane leaders, are killed and imprisoned and tortured, and our pussified president, who is afraid to treat a terrorist who attempts to carry out an act of terror on our soil like a frigging terrorist, refuses to offer any tangible support at all.

    The whole world is going to get pretty ugly and bloody in short time.

    Well the people voted. Who are we to tell the Swiss about what is right and wrong? To me its right that Iran shouldn't be allowed to have nuclear energy. So does that give Israel the right to start a war with them? Or does Iran and any other country have the right to possess nuclear arms?

    The way I look at it, the people of Switzerland voted for this. No different than any other country when they create their own laws. If the Islamic people there don't like it, they can get the hell out.

    Just like how all the US Celebrities were going to move to Canada if GW Bush won in 2004.

    I do agree Europe will be an interesting place to watch in the upcoming years. They will be number 1 on the radical Islam list due to the laws they are passing. I remember about 10 years ago, Pat Buchanan wrote a book called "The Death of the West" and he talked about how Europe was going to have issues by having a large Islamic minority group. The birth rate of these migrants are a lot like the Hispanic community in the States. The difference is that Hispanics come from a Christian background and have similar morals and beliefs with the American population. However that is not the case in Europe and the Islamic minority groups.

    Its going to get ugly.for both sides
