news24 reported 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.
That is about as likely as Osama accepting Christ as his personal saviour."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.
Why on earth would he do something that stupid. He is the head of a major church which truly is a Religion of Peace; why would he want to embrace a faith with no central religious authority, and where people politically try to stir up trouble in the streets to get themselves more power."We say to the pope - whether you apologise or not is irrelevant, as apologies make no difference to us."
Then why ask for them? Is Islam so weak that it can be insulted by a cartoon or a 700 year old quotation.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".
Actually they should let the Prophet worry about defending himself, and they should battle the internal struggle that has them so fearful that someone will insult their faith that they respond violently to a question about whether they really are a Religion of Peace
