Libyan Students Protest Ban on Swiss Minarets

Ad Feedback

Hundreds of student protesters in Libya are joining their leader's call for jihad against Switzerland.

The group marched to the Swiss Embassy in Tripoli on Monday in support of Moammar Gadhafi's call for a "holy war."

Gadhafi is calling for jihad, because Swiss voters recently banned the building of new minarets. Those are the tower-like structures on mosques.

Libya's official news agency reported Gadhafi saying, "Those who destroy God's mosques deserve to be attacked through jihad, and if Switzerland was on our borders, we would fight it."

In the meantime, Swiss nationalist lawmaker Oskar Freysinger has suggested Switzerland call on the U.N. Security Council to condemn Gadhafi's remarks.

"This man has declared war on Switzerland. If Hitler had done the same, everybody would have protested. But with this guy, we just accept it," Freysinger declared.
