Italian politicians rip visiting Qaddafi's appeal for Islam
Catholic World News - August 30, 2010
A visit to Italy by Muammar Qaddafi has sparked criticism from critics who objected to the Libyan leader’s staged plea for Italians to convert to Islam.
Upon arriving in Rome on August 30, Qaddafi distributed copies of the Qu’ran to a group of women who had been recruited to meet him at the airport, and delivered an address encouraging them to consider Islam. Rocco Buttiglione, a leader of the Christian Democratic party, commented that a Christian leader would never be allowed to make a similar appeal in a predominantly Muslim country.

"A leader of the Christian Democratic party, commented that a Christian leader would never be allowed to make a similar appeal in a predominantly Muslim country." Absolutely true and it is high time that the Vatican and the bishops become less naive and more aware of some of the plans of many Muslims, plans demonstrated openly by a tyrant, M. Qaddafi. Do we want St. Peter's Basilica to become a Muslim museum just like Hagia Sophia in Istanbul today?
