Gadhafi warns Switzerland of Al-Qaeda attacks

Robert Spencer reports that Libyan dictator Muamar Gadhafi has warned Switzerland over possible attacks against it by al-Qaeda.
Therein lies the assumption that all acts of jihadist terrorism must be a response to some kind of provocation (real or imagined) from non-Muslims: after all, the apologists keep telling us "defensive" jihad is quite alright, caliph or no caliph.

The Fraggle-haired dictator also quips "I don't think anyone in the Muslim world will from now on authorise the construction of a church." This is ironic, of course, since 1.) it's not like the Muslim world has welcomed churches or freedom of worship with open arms up to now, and 2.) restrictions on building non-Muslim houses of worship are enshrined in the Pact of Umar, which has provided a far-reaching precedent for oppressing non-Muslims in a variety of ways. For that matter, the minaret ban does not restrict worship or the construction of mosques.
I'm not really bothered by the fact that Gadhafi said this - it's what I'd expect him to say. I'm more bothered by the fact that Swiss foreign minister Micheline Calmy-Rey said almost the same thing as Gadhafi.

The Swiss elites are Islamopandering. There is a great fear of Islam in Europe which is accompanied by a great contempt of Jews.
