Gaddafi to Palestinians: Revolt Against Israel; Wants Boats Around Israel Until Demands Met

The Reuters website reports today (February 14, 2011) that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said yesterday that Palestinian refugees should mass peacefully on the borders of Israel until it gives in to their demands.

"Fleets of boats should take Palestinians... and wait by the Palestinian shores until the problem is resolved," Gaddafi was shown saying on state television. He added, "This is a time of popular revolutions," in an obvious reference to the recent huge Mideast protests in Egypt and Tunisia.

His speech yesterday marked the birthday of the Prophet Mohamed -- a holy day in the Islamic calendar.

Gaddafi concluded his speech by saying, "All Arab states which have relations with Israel are cowardly regimes."
