Gaddafi lectures 500 Italian Women on Islam
Colonel Muammar Gaddafi invited hundreds of attractive Italian “hostesses” to a villa in Rome last night for an evening at which he urged them to convert to Islam and told them Christianity was based on a fraud, Italian reports said today.
The Libyan leader is in Italy to attend a United Nations summit on world food security. Reports said that Colonel Gaddafi’s aides phoned an agency which provides elegantly dressed young women to act as hospitality staff at events.
The agency was asked to send 500 women to the residence of Hafed Gaddur, the Libyan ambassador in Rome, where Colonel Gaddafi is staying, over a series of evenings during the three day summit.
The agency advertised for “500 pleasing girls between 18 and 35 years of age, at least one metre 70 high.” The women were asked to dress elegantly but soberly, with both miniskirts and cleavage-revealing decolletage firmly banned.
Those who replied were offered €60 (£53) to attend an evening at the villa for an “exchange of opinions” and to “receive a Libyan gift”, which turned out to be a copy of the Koran. They were given nothing to eat or drink, however.
Not the first time Gaddafi has done something so outrageously bizarre. He is well known for his antics, storming out of Arab league conferences, lashing out at Arab leaders, his 40 ‘all-female’ virgin guards, his lame attempt at literature known as the ‘Green book’, setting up a tent in Paris hotel and the list carries on. Earlier this year he was in Italy, Libya’s old colonialist master, again with his massive tent and picture of Libyan Hero Sidi Omar al-Mukhtar stuck on his chest, and now this.
Hardly the best person to lecture anybody on Islam, with 40 year history of human right violations, tyranny and brutal dictatorship. What we see here is not just an ageing Gaddafi but a shameless Muslim leader.
“Convert to Islam. Jesus was sent to the Jews, not for you. Mohammed, on the other hand, was sent for all human beings,” he reportedly said. “Whoever goes in a different direction than Mohammed is wrong. God’s religion is Islam, and whoever follows a different one, in the end, will lose,” Colonel Gaddafi added, according to La Stampa. Source
