Gaddafi: Europe will ‘turn black’ unless EU pays Libya £4bn a year, by Nick Squires in 2010. Story idea from Steve Sailer.
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.
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”.
Can’t say he didn’t warn us. A year later, with help from Western air forces, Gaddafi’s government was overthrown and he was sodomized to death.
Now Africans pour across the Mediterranean to Europe, and there are slave markets in Libya.
