“Any Muslim in any part of the world who works with Switzerland is an apostate, is against Muhammad, God and the Koran.”

02/26/2010 Libya (BBC News)-A top UN official has condemned as “inadmissible” Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s call for a jihad, or holy war, against Switzerland .

“Such declarations on the part of the head of state are inadmissible in international relations,” said Sergei Ordzhonikidze, the UN chief in Geneva .
