Col Muammar Gaddafi has warned that Europe runs the risk of turning "black" unless the EU pays Libya at least 5 billion (£4.1 billion) a year to block the arrival of illegal immigrants from Africa.
Muammar Gaddafi returns to Tripoli after his controversial visit to Italy
His remarks, made during a controversial three day visit to Italy, were condemned as "unacceptable blackmail" by Italian MPs, who likened the demand to the protection money that mafia gangs demand from businesses.
Speaking at a ceremony in Rome while standing next to Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's prime minister, Col Gaddafi, 67, said that unless his request for money was met, Europe would otherwise become "another Africa" as a result of the "advance of millions of immigrants".
"Tomorrow Europe might no longer be European and even black as there are millions who want to come in," he said.
"We don't know if Europe will remain an advanced and united continent or if it will be destroyed, as happened with the barbarian invasions".
Tens of thousands of desperate African refugees and economic migrants have reached Italian soil by boat from the North African coast, although the influx has been stemmed by the Libyan navy in the last year under an accord with the Berlusconi government.
An MP from the opposition Italy of Values party, Silvana Mura, accused the Libyan leader of holding Europe to ransom, demanding mafia-style protection money in return for a promise to safeguard the continent from unchecked immigration.
Another opposition MP, Luigi de Magistris, accused the Libyan regime of keeping tens of thousands of African migrants in "concentration camps" in the desert.

Somebody...anybo0dy...bomb this moronic bastard into reality!
BTW, Mexico is doing the same to the USA.
I mean, better that the free people of the west make key decisons concerning the future of societies with all the facts on the table.
Seems Gaddafi has forgotten about the bomb that landed close enough to his tent to make him lose bowel control, maybe he’s after an encore.
Lots of Mohammedans coming across that border and they're not asylum seekers.
Since he was able to flim-flam the British into releasing the Lockerbie bomber he now thinks any threat he makes will be obeyed. But one never knows, the EU is in such a PC trance they may take him up on the offer.
Actually sounds like a bargain to me.
Maybe we could interest him in our southern border as well.
This effort failed for many reasons. The willing assimilation into the culture of the new countries being prominent. As Europe has abandoned its cultural roots the future is questionable.
For once, he has said something useful, something that Euro politicians are afraid to say.
Reagan stepped on this clown like the cockroach he is. Obama kisses his rear end.
Something that most do not recognize is all of Africa is behind this man at the UN. He was voted king of kings by all the despots in Africa. IF he needs to do something at the UN, or Africa wants something he has 83 votes for 83 nations. Now, although he is not black, his Islamic nation is in Africa and his Islamic connections tie the middle east to Africa.
All of Africa? Most f’d up place on the planet with the most incompetent racists going. So if he means flood the place and he wants blackmail cash, screw him. He and they will flood it anyway cuzz they want a better life.
Its really too bad they cant figure out how to tie their own shoes as they could have their own “America” for the bountiful resources. Truly a visionless people, since the beginning of time. But, if you want a genocide? They can cook one up on a moments notice!
For him and his threat? EU would be further ahead investing the same money into tomohawks.
There is always another side to the history the left uses to beat Americans over the head with.
“Seems Gaddafi has forgotten about the bomb that landed close enough to his tent to make him lose bowel control, maybe hes after an encore.”
I blame Reagan. He should have authorized a second pass.
Let’s also not forget that the BIG immigration law of 1924 explicitly limited immigration from Southern and Eastern Europe. The Chinese exclusion act and Gentleman’s Agreement with Japan were passed earlier. Interestingly enough, Mexican immigrants were all but allowed free passage over the southern border, with the 1930s being the first time that action was taken against illegals from Mexico (due to the depression).
He remembers WHO bombed him and he KNOWS who is president now.
Europe is on their own.
A night on FR is as good as a semester of history in any JC in the country.
Reagan stepped on this clown like the cockroach he is.
I’m trying without success to find the Archie quote about how “Ronnie creamed Gaddafi” It was hilarious.
Never ever buy a home with a active home owners association.
You sign away your basic property rights the day you do
Give an inch and they will take a mile. Never fails.
Never leave a live enemy behind you.
You’re right, Reagan should have authorized a second pass. :)
It’d be nice if someone in Europe would carry it to him now but probably not much hope for that and Zer0 is useless.
From '01 to '09 Gaddafi was up front and center and apologizing while giving up nuclear secrets.
What has changed lately?
“Another opposition MP, Luigi de Magistris, accused the Libyan regime of keeping tens of thousands of African migrants in “concentration camps” in the desert.”
Fine, have Italy take them to a 5 star hotel in Rome.
As for the rest, Gaddafi is begging for a James Bond type
Since he was able to flim-flam the British into releasing the Lockerbie bomber he now thinks any threat he makes will be obeyed.
************************************************************Give an inch and they will take a mile. Never fails.
I just don't know... could it be OBAMA?
While Reagan was President, Gaddafi had Pan Am 103 blown up.
Momar learning Chicago Style Blackmail from the one? Over seas Community Organizing?? This guy needs a bullet in the brain......
The attack lasted about ten minutes. Several targets were hit and destroyed, but some civilian and diplomatic sites in Tripoli were struck as well, and the French embassy was reportedly only narrowly missed, when a number of bombs missed their intended targets.
Reagan warned that "if necessary, we shall do it again.
I have to wonder if France and others now have second thoughts about refusing the use of their air space? They went easy on Gaddafi 25 years ago, now that Reagan is not around he is up to his old tricks.
Yeah, I was always kinda miffed we missed him back in the 80’s.
He also lost a child in that deal... You'd think he'd have learned by now to shut his ancient pie hole...
lulz, I suppose the EU will have to turn black... =.=
We tried to once already. "Missed him by that much."
But I don’t see why Gaddafi should solve Europe’s immigration problems. Why should he bother to stop the Africans from invading Europe? It makes no difference to him. Yeah, he’s a jerk, but there is no incentive for him to protect Europe from barbarian hordes. They should be doing that themselves.
“His remarks, made during a controversial three day visit to Italy, were condemned as “unacceptable blackmail....”
Wondering what blackmail IS acceptable?
The new Batman villian, ButtonHead (or Clown Face), can’t decide yet.
A couple members of his family who lost more than their bowels left the Gadfly Guy bitter.
GW had to show the Gadman that the U.S.A. means business by invading Afghanistan and Iraq.
This caused the Camel Carresser to give up his yellow cake.
Now that the Baggy Bedoin has all of Subsaharan Africa on his side, he can claim the title Geriatric Gaddafi.
"The little island of Lampedusa, halfway between Libya and Sicily, has made international news as a prime transit site for illegal immigrants hoping to enter Europe from Africa, the Middle East and Asia. A secret agreement between the Libyan and Italian governments in 2004 obliged Libya to take in returned refugees and resulted in the deportation of many people from Lampedusa to Libya in 2004 and 2005. The European Parliament did not endorse this.
In 2006 it was reported that illegal immigrants from Africa still commonly pay smugglers in Libya for a transit to Lampedusa. From there they are transferred by the Italian government to reception centers in mainland Italy and eventually released; their deportation orders are not enforced. The illegal immigration into Italy's territory is a major issue in recent times, with parties who campaign with the issue as part of their promises."
While Reagan was President he also had Gaddafi blown up. Leveled his palace. Unfortuantely Gaddafi escaped But you never heard of him again for 10 years after that.
Gaddafi was bombed in 1986. He had Pan AM 103 blown up in retaliation in 1988.
