Dictator’s Son: Pope Should Convert to Islam Immediately
The son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi says the Pope should convert to Islam.
Tripoli - The elder son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has called on Pope Benedict XVI to convert to Islam immediately, dismissing last week’s apology from the pontiff for offending Muslims.
“If this person were really someone reasonable, he would not agree to remain at his post one minute, but would convert to Islam immediately,” Mohammed Gaddafi told an awards ceremony on Monday evening for an international competition to memorise the Qur’an.
“We say to the pope - whether you apologise or not is irrelevant, as apologies make no difference to us.”
Gaddafi junior also hit out at “those Muslims who look for comfort in the words of a non-Muslim”.
He said Muslims “should not look for charity from the infidel… but should fight Islam’s enemies who attack the faith and the Prophet Muhammad”.
