Gaddafi rounds up attractive women to convert

Not only attractive women but those over 5’7 and between 18 and 35 years old:

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, in Rome for a U.N. food summit, spent several hours in the company of 200 Italian women recruited by an agency and tried to convert them to Islam, Italian media reported on Monday.
“Seeking 500 attractive girls between 18 and 35 years old, at least 1.70 meters (5 foot, 7 inches) tall, well-dressed but not in mini-skirts or low cut dresses,” read the ad by the Hostessweb agency and quoted in Italy’s Corriere dell Sera newspaper in its story.


They were told they would receive 60 euros and “some Libyan gifts.” They thought it was a party but it turned out to be a recruitment to Islam. He talked for two hours without offering them refreshments and the gifts they received were the Koran and a book of Gaddafi sayings.
So, shortage of attractive women in Libya? Or new strategic mission field?

Hmm… sounds like deceptive advertising to me.
Reminds me of a popular method of street evangelism I’ve heard tell of. You approach people in public and ask if they will participate in a survey you are taking. But really you’re not collecting survey data at all. The questions in the cleverly arranged “survey” start off very general, then move into questions about religion, and finally lead the respondant to an invitation to recieve Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior.
Is the gospel of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ so weak & powerless that we must resort to deliberate deception in order to “get our foot in the door” to gain an audience for the life changing message of salvation by grace alone, throug faith alone, because of Christ alone?
I, for one, don’t believe that the truth of our message relieves us from the ethical obligation of being circumspect and upright (yes, even truthful) in our presentation of the gospel.

This is hilarious – I take it Gaddafi is tired of his own wives or mistresses. (Seriously, I don’t about his personal life, but this is ridiculous.)

My guess is that this is some kind of internal propaganda for Libya.

I agree with Alicia…this is hilarious. Gaddafi is really desperate for women! He only got 200 and he wanted 500…that says something….many women weren’t anxious to spend an afternoon with an old dude in robes, and were smart enough to ignore the ad. He not only wanted “attractive” women, he specified height and required clothing. No thanks.

I think it is also unbelievable that anyone would agree to “party” with a man who is not only a dictator but a lunatic. Don’t care how much money or presents were offered. Then again, I’m 54, 5 ft 3 inches, and moderately attractive, so I would never make a good “trophy wife.”

All I know is, if I lived in New Jersey and I thought my daughters might be reading an ad about a man in green robes throwing a tea in Hoboken…

I understand that although none of the women converted, 25 did buy time-share condos in Tripoli.
