Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on Friday expressed support for the Palestinian people under Hamas rule. A report released in the Libyan press announced that Tripoli would continue to assist the Palestinian people in their just struggle to establish a state. During a meeting between the Libyan leader and exiled Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Gaddafi asserted that his country did not recognize either Israel or the Palestinian Authority, but rather, would only accept a one-state solution that would combine the two entities. Gaddafi had previously presented his one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, though it never received any popular support. The plan consisted of the establishment of a single, democratic nation extending from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. The country was to be called Isratine. Just on Thursday, the Breaking the Ice peace mission, which consisted of a multi-national, multi-cultural group of people, was refused entry into Libya because of its Israeli participants. The group was told "Israel does not exist as a country, it is Palestine. We don't allow occupiers into our country." Breaking the Ice was established as a group that brings together people from many different countries and cultures, in hopes of bridging gaps between them through a rigorous trek across the Sahara Desert.
