 Gaddaffi: Swiss minaret ban invite to attack Europe -from jihadwatch

Gaddafi: Swiss minaret ban invitation to attack Europe
Not a single church is allowed in Saudi Arabia. Islamic law forbids churches from ever being taller than a mosque. Throughout the Islamic world, churches crumble as they are rarely allowed to make proper repairs without official permission. Yet one European nation bans minarets… not mosques mind you, just minarets, and it is an invitation to all-out-war against all Europeans. How amazingly reasonable. How amazingly fair-minded. Behold the Islamo-supremacist world-view.

Ynet: According to Libyan leader, al Qaeda militants are now saying, ‘We warned you that they were our enemies… Come and join us for jihad against Europe’

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said the Swiss referendum banning the building of new minarets was an invitation for al-Qaeda to launch attacks in Europe, the official news agency JANA reported on Sunday.

“They pretend they are ‘fighting al-Qaeda and terrorism’ whereas in fact they have just rendered it the greatest service,” he said, referring to Switzerland with disdain as “the mafia of the world.”

On November 29, more than 57% of Swiss voters approved a rightwing motion to ban minarets on mosques, a decision that has sparked an international backlash and charges of intolerance.

“Al-Qaeda militants are now saying: ‘We warned you that they were our enemies… Look at what they are doing in Europe. Come and join us for a jihad (holy war) against Europe,’” Gaddafi said.

The Libyan leader, speaking at an academic ceremony on Saturday in Zliten, 160 km east of Tripoli, said Muslim countries now had an argument not to allow the building of new churches.

“I don’t think anyone in the Muslim world will from now on authorize the construction of a church,” Gaddafi said.

He warned Switzerland of the economic fallout of a rift with the Muslim world. “You must think of your interests. You need gas, ports, the sea, solar energy, investments,” Gaddafi said.

Tripoli’s own relations with Bern have been strained by the brief detention in July 2008 in Geneva of Gaddafi’s son Hannibal and daughter-in-law after two servants had complained of mistreatment.

Two Swiss businessmen have since been held in the North African country.

Now Saudi Arabia joins the outcry!


Hypocrisy: Saudi Arabia, the country that won't allow churches or synagogues, calls for boycott of Switzerland over minaret ban
That is, it is hypocrisy from a Western point of view. As far as the Saudis are concerned, Islam is the truth, its truth is self-evident, and therefore the Swiss are obligated to accommodate it in a way that the Saudis are not obligated to accommodate non-Muslim religious observance.

"Saudi Arabia calls to boycott Swiss over minaret ban," by Roee Nahmias for Ynet News, December 8 (thanks to Fjordman):

A number of religious figures in Saudi Arabia called to boycott Switzerland and withdraw all Muslim deposits from bank accounts in the country in protest against the Swiss referendum that banned building new minarets. The UAE-based newspaper al-Bayan reported that religious moderator Khaled al-Shamrani called for afar-reaching boycott on all good and products originating in Switzerland. He also called upon Muslims to avoid traveling to the country. Religious figure Ahmed al-Hassan called wealthy Muslims to withdraw their deposits from Swiss banks.
