#Gaddafi's Sons Sought Religious Ruling Against Protesters from Saudi Clerics

and were denied, reports Reuters Africa:

DUBAI, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Sons of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have failed to persuade prominent Saudi clerics to issue religious rulings against a revolt that is threatening to bring down the veteran leader, Al Arabiya television said on Monday.

The Saudi-owned channel said on its website that Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam had contacted one cleric, Salman al-Awda, and Saadi Gaddafi had reached out to a second, Ayedh al-Garni, but both rejected their calls.

"You are killing the Libyan people. Turn to God because you are wronging them. Protect Libyan blood, you are killing old people and children. Fear God," Garni said he told Saadi.

Garni made the remarks on air on Sunday, the website said, adding Awda gave the same message to Saif al-Islam.

There are protests planned in Saudi Arabia on March 10 and March 20. Robert Fisk, of The Independent, thinks the "end game" is Saudi Arabia. We'll see.

Saadi Gaddafi spoke the truism in his interview with ABC's Amanpour the other day:

"It's fever. It's going to spread everywhere. No one can stop it. That is my personal opinion, and the chaos will be everywhere. ... They think it's about freedom. I love freedom. You love freedom, but it's powerful, this earthquake. No one can control it."

We'll see soon enough.

Kli, I'm hoarding anything physical, not just PM. Now the West is eager to mess up Libya, I am afraid they will get their wish - a mess.
