Background: More than 250 delegates from political youth movements in 50 countries have been attending a four-day conference in the Libyan capital, Tripoli.
Opening the conference on Sunday (13 May), Libyan leader, Col. Muammar Gaddafi, described Islam as a religion that could guide "Third World" nations in their efforts to steer a middle course between the ideologies of East and West.
He said Islam could guide the world as a whole, since it was a doctrine which did not discriminate between religions, races, languages or colours.
Col. Gaddafi said his "International Third Theory" was the only way for people to put an end to exploitation by capitalism and enslavement by Communism.
