Gaddafi: Nukes for Palestinians, but not for Iran

Monday, October 26, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

Eccentric Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi told Sky News in an interview aired on Monday that the Palestinians and all other Arab states in the Middle East should have nuclear weapons, but agreed that atomic bombs in the hands of the Iranians was a bad idea.

Gaddafi said that the Palestinians in particular deserve nuclear weapons, since their direct opponents, the Israelis, are believe to have nuclear weapons.

"If we don't want this situation...we'll have to disarm the Israelis from their nuclear weapons capabilities," concluded Gaddafi.

The flamboyant dictator went on to say he does not necessarily believe Iran is planning to build nuclear weapons, but that if it was, "then all of us, including [Lybia], will be against them."
