Libya's Gaddafi wants Arabs to fight against Israel
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who has accused Arab leaders of a "cowardly" response to Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, urged them to let their citizens join Palestinian fighters as volunteers, state media said on Friday.

"I call on Arabs to open the door for volunteers to fight alongside the Palestinians," said Gaddafi in a one-line statement carried by state news agency Jana.

A day after Israeli offensive on Gaza began on Dec. 27, Gaddafi assailed Arab leaders for failing to back the Palestinians living there beyond offering humanitarian aid or discussing a possible Arab summit.
