Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on Thursday said that US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's recent strong statements in support of Israel are the result of his fear of being assassinated by Israel's Mossad spy agency.
Gaddafi claimed in remarks to Reuters that the Mossad was behind the assassination of former US President John F. Kennedy, who was killed because he was about to "look into Israel's nuclear program."
According to Gaddafi, Obama does not want to suffer a similar fate, and so is doing his best to appease the Jews and Israel with strong statements of support. The Libyan leader said this weakness will be a underlying theme if Obama becomes president due to his inferiority complex over being America's first black president.
Gaddafi is renowned for his wild accusations and bizarre polices and governing style, all of which have made him an international pariah.
