Beware the “Crusaders” My Friend; The Jaws That Bite, The Claws That Scratch

Interesting use of the epithet “Crusaders,” this time by Gaddafi’s government.  I had not been previously aware of Arab governments using the term.  Rather, I thought that this was generally a bit of jihadist terminology.

Did I miss something?  Or are Gaddafi’s people trying to claim the mantle of Islam in the Libyan civil war?
