(Newser) – Muammar Gadhafi shot off his infamously intemperate mouth at Barack Obama yesterday, berating the candidate for saying Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel, and suggesting that he might have an inferiority complex because of his African origins.
Either the candidate is ignorant of international politics, the Libyan leader said, or it was "a campaign lie,” the BBC reports.

A third possibility, he added, is that Obama may have said it because he fears being assassinated by Israeli agents—the same people he said assassinated JFK. “We fear that Obama will feel that, because he is black with an inferiority complex, this will make him behave worse than the whites,” he said. “This will be a tragedy. We will tell him to be proud of himself as a black, and feel that all Africa is behind him.”
