Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi blasted 'Israel' at a special African Union summit on Monday for causing all the woes facing Africa.Gaddafi said all sorts of other things at this summit. At JANA, Gaddafi's own news agency, these remarks are covered in an article called "Chaired By Leader of the Revolution, Chairman of the African Union Proceedings of the AU Summit for Resolution of Conflicts in Africa Kicks Off in Tripoli...13th Addendum."

'Israel' is "behind all of Africa's conflicts," Kadhafi told some 30 African leaders gathered at Tripoli airport for a summit focused on solving the continent's trouble spots, including Sudan's Darfur and Somalia.

"As African brothers we must find solutions to stop the superpowers who are pillaging our continent," he said.

"The Iranian people expressed their total confidence in you by their brilliant choice and I am confident that the friendly relations and cooperation between the two countries will further develop in accordance with the two nations' interests," Bozize said in his message. [...]

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel repeated their calls for tougher sanctions against Iran in a Monday meeting in Berlin.
"We are sorry to see their [Merkel and Sarkozy's] remarks [on Iran's nuclear program], instead of being based on legal grounds, they [the remarks] show how under the influence of the aggressive policies of the Zionist leaders they are," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi said on Tuesday.
