Libyan Despot Moammer Khadafy Warns West: If I Go Down, Illegal African Immigrants Will Swarm Europe

Corky Siemaszko, Daily News (New York), March 7, 2011

Libyan leader Moammer Khadafy played the race card Monday, warning Europe that if he falls they will be deluged by hordes of illegal African immigrants.

“There are millions of blacks who could come to the Mediterranean to cross to France and Italy, and Libya plays a role in security in the Mediterranean,” he told the France 24 television station.

“Libya may become the Somalia of North Africa, of the Mediterranean,” Khadafy’s son, Seif, added. “You will see the pirates in Sicily, in Crete, in Lampedusa. You will see millions of illegal immigrants. The terror will be next door.”

The blaring bigotry came as Khadafy’s forces drew a line in the sand around the despot’s hometown of Surt and launched a fierce counter-attack against rebels trying to topple him.
