Libya's dispute with Switzerland was intensified Thursday after Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi called for 'jihad' against the European nation "with all means" due to its referendum to ban minarets.
"Any Muslim in any part of the world who works with Switzerland is an apostate, is against (the Prophet) Mohammad, God and the Koran," Gaddafi said. "The masses of Muslims must go to all airports in the Islamic world and prevent any Swiss plane landing, to all harbors and prevent any Swiss ships docking, inspect all shops and markets to stop any Swiss goods being sold."
Libya's feud with Switzerland stems from a 2008 incident in which Gaddafi's son, Hannibal, was arrested in Geneva over accusations that he had abused his domestic servants.
Switzerland did not comment on Gaddafi's remarks.
