Rumor: Gaddafi threatened to kill thousands of Libyan Palestinians

A Hamas news source in Damascus is claiming that Moammar Gaddafi threatened to kill tens of thousands of Palestinian Arabs in Libya because of his anger at the perceived support that Hamas and Islamic Jihad were giving the uprising.

According to the story, Gaddafi also threatened to cut off funds for Gaza development projects that Libya is underwriting.

The story goes on the claim that the PA instructed its people to not speak publicly about the Libyan revolution, saying it is an internal Libyan matter.

Of course, Libya already was discriminating against its Palestinian Arab population.
