Libya's president to defend Islam in TV series

(Al Arabiya) From "King of Kings" to "Imam of Muslims," Muammar Gaddafi has given himself many titles but it seems his latest title is script writer as Libya's president works on a TV series to tackle Islamophobia, press reports said Tuesday.

The series will start off in the Arab world and move to Europe and Asia and will show the audience the types of problems Arabs face and defend Islam from continuous attacks, the London-based Asharq al-Awsat reported.

The focus will be on oppression, dictatorship and the relationship between the people and the regimes as well as the strong ties between Muslims and Christians in the Arab world.

The script will be adapted to TV by Syrian writer Fadel Affash and directed by Syrian director Ziad al-Rayes and is expected to air next year during the holy month of Ramadan, when TV ratings soar as people live a less active life style.

Although this is the first time an Arab leader writes a script for TV, this is not the first time Gaddafi has showcased his writing skills.

In 1975, Gaddafi published his now renowned "Green Book," which presents his views on democracy and outlines his idea of Islamic Socialism. The book rejects the modern form of democracy and instead promotes the concept of direct democracy based on the formation of popular committees.
