Some rebel groups claim that this is their reason for fighting... maybe we should think twice about supporting another rebel group that we really only have a mutual dislike for an opponent. Just a thought.
Qaddafi* is famously vague about his upbringing. There have been claims from him being of Berber origin to him having been born out of wedlock to a Jewish mother and Italian father. If there is any truth to these rumors about Gadhafi's* origin this, it could be pretty huge.
