Libyan Leader Muammar al-Qaddafi gave a lecture on Islam to more than 100 young Italian women on Sunday night, encouraging them to convert and telling them it was false that Islam discriminated against women.
Qaddafi, in Rome for the United Nations World Summit on Food Security, told the women that Christ came for the Jews, but that Mohammed came for everyone, according to Italian press reports.
Libyan officials used an agency that provides hostesses for conferences to advertise for Italian women between the ages of 18 and 35 to attend the talk, held at the Libyan embassy in Italy. The women were told to dress modestly, with no miniskirts and no plunging necklines.
At the end of the lecture Qaddafi gave each woman a copy of the Koran, and took their names, telling them they would be invited for a vacation in Libya.
