It was no accident that terrorist President Gaddafi of Libya referred incessantly to Obama as his son or "our son". On June 11, 2008, Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, in a speech broadcast on Al-Jazeera, spoke glowingly of Obama. According to a translation provided by MEMRI, Gaddafi said, "His name is Obama. All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man. They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency."
After his incitement to violence and insane diatribe, Gaddafi headed to the Libyan mission for more than an hour and was visited by limelight-loving radical Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan was his only visitor.
Farrakhan has a special relationship with Obama's pastor of twenty years, Jeremiah Wright.
Anti-Semitic firebrand Louis Farrakhan labeled Obama "the hope of the entire world" and compared him to the founder of the Nation of Islam, the group Farrakhan heads (Associated Press, February 25).
Is it any wonder that Obama made that America bashing speech today at the UN? His contempt for America is rivaled only by his hatred for the Jewish people and their homeland.

"We are content and happy if Obama can stay forever as the president," Gaddafi said during a rambling, 95-minute speech
He demanded that European countries pay African nations $7.7 trillion for colonizing the continent in the past. If the Europeans don't pay, he suggested, the Africans will go get the money themselves. (ABC)
the Libyan meandered from decrying the U.N. Security Council as a "terror council" because it gives big powers the right to veto resolutions, to accusing capitalist countries of making viruses, to calling for the end of a treaty that bans mines, which he called defensive weapons.
"It should not be called the Security Council. It should be called the terror council," he said. He added that its powers should be given to the General Assembly, which includes all 192 U.N. members, and that it should implement what the larger assembly decides.
Col. Gadhafi also said the U.N. headquarters should be transferred from New York, that the U.S. decision to invade Iraq was "the mother of all evils" and should be investigated, and that an "Israeli," Jack Ruby, killed Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin of President John F. Kennedy.
Nonetheless, he professed admiration for President Obama, who spoke immediately before him.(Washington Times)
Was this taken after Obama sanctioned the release of Libyan terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi (on compassionate grounds)? Megrahi is the only Muslim terrorist convicted in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 that killed 270 people when the jetliner blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland, more than two decades ago.
UPDATE9/23: Is America going to sanction this evil? Over at NRO:
Michael hits the nail on the head . . . and then comes this: The Obama administration has notified Congress of the State Department's intention to contribute $400,000 to foundations run by Muammar Qaddafi's two children — $200,000 each for daughter Aisha and son Saif. Saif, you may recall, is the son who escorted the Lockerbie terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi home to a hero's welcome in Libya after President Obama sternly "warned" Qaddafi that there was to be no hero's welcome.
Illinois Republican congressman Mark Steven Kirk (House Appropriations Subcommittee on State/Foreign Operations) has sent Obama a letter asking him to rescind the funding.
Could somebody please tell this president that this is not just Annenberg Foundation cash he's passing out to his personal terrorist pals like Bill Ayers but American taxpayer dollars he's doling out to the terrorist tyrant behind the murder — in just that one incident — of 270 people, including 189 Americans.
Just 40 months to go. God help us.
