Libya: compensation for Libyan Jews

Qaddafi's son Sayf al-Islam said Libya is open to the idea of compensating exiled Libyan Jews.
"We're not thinking now of establishing contacts or relations with Israel because it's not on the agenda and no one has requested it of us. But we can in the future open the file of compensation for Jews for their seized funds or assets," he told Qatari newspapers in an interview during a two-day visit.

"It is a responsibility to invite Libyan Jews, including from Israel ... to return to Libya, their ancestral land, and to abandon the land they acquired from the Palestinians," he added.
The first part isn't new news ... in January, his daddy made the same overture.
