Libyan leader calls for jihad against Switzerland

Libyan leader calls for jihad against Switzerland

Libya's leader has called on all Muslims to launch a jihad, or holy war, against Switzerland for banning minarets.
Libya's official news agency JANA quoted Libya leader Moammar Gadhafi as saying, "Those who destroy God's mosques deserve to be attacked through jihad."
Gadhafi also called for a boycott of Swiss goods.
Swiss Foreign Ministry spokesman Lars Knuchel declined to comment on Gadhafi's call for a holy war against the neutral Alpine republic.
In November, Swiss voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on minarets, or mosque towers.
The controversial decision that put Switzerland at the forefront of a European backlash against a growing Muslim population.
