Colonel Gaddafi - Jihad Against Switzerland - February 27th 2010, 10:22 PM

This is a pretty interesting and rather funny story, especially the comments from the people in this article. To summarize, Gaddafi, the leader of Lybia, was irate that back in 2008, Switzerland arrested one of his sons because they suspected him physical abuse towards servants and his wife. In 2009, Switzerland had a 57.5% vote against minarets. Gaddafi used this in part of his rant by saying the Swiss are infidels and called for a jihad against the Swiss. He then shut off oil supplies to Switzerland, removed money from Swiss bank accounts but more importantly, he prevented Swiss business people from leaving Lybia to go back to Switzerland. After 19 months of being detained, one finally got released recently while the other still has a 4 month sentence. Gaddafi then barred people from 25 European countries from entering Lybia.

According to Yasar Ozdemir, a member of the Zurich-based Swiss Federation of Muslim Association, "it did not shock us, as he often says such nonsense".

I think Yasar Ozdemir hit the nail on the head there to be honest. Expecting Colonel Gaddafi to say anything which makes much sense these days is a pretty vain hope...
