So they are - in fact churches and Christian monasteries can be found throughout Saudi Arabia and all other Middle-Eastern countries. I agree the Libyan leader is annoyed, but Switzerland is a small place, already has several hundred mosques, and construction of any more minarets (currently there are already 4 in the entire country) presents an architectural difficulty rather than make a religious statement.
On Professor Khan of Pakistan: he did sell technology to others, as these 2 books and review from Foreign Affairs make clear >
Nuclear Black Markets: Pakistan, A. Q. Khan, and the Rise of Proliferation Networks -- A Net Assessment. International Institute for Strategic Studies, 2007.
Shopping for Bombs: Nuclear Proliferation, Global Insecurity, and the Rise and Fall of the A. Q. Khan Network. By Gordon Corera. Oxford University Press, 2006.
The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) has provided a great service with this analysis of the nuclear network masterminded by A. Q. Khan, the man former CIA Director George Tenet described as "at least as dangerous as Osama bin Laden." For almost two decades, Khan's network -- based in Africa, Asia, and Europe -- sold nuclear enrichment technology, nuclear weapon design information, and expertise to Iran, Iraq, Libya, and North Korea, while effectively bypassing the export control regime. Equally valuable is this report's examination of the efforts to halt the illicit nuclear trade. What remains worrisome is the degree to which global proliferation networks and nuclear black markets continue to function as instruments of state policy or as the new favored business model for nuclear entrepreneurs. Gordon Corera's book complements the IISS study, offering a detailed historical context of Pakistan's nuclear program and the central role A. Q. Khan played in its development. Corera explores how Khan and his confederates constructed and maintained the network, demonstrates the immense difficulty the U.S. intelligence community had in detecting and monitoring it over decades, and illuminates the great problems involved in mustering the political will necessary to stop Khan's network when Islamabad was a major ally in the war on terror.
>but he had no choice in the matter, if he wanted to generate funding for his own country's acquisition of nuclear weapons. Of his 4 clients, btw, North Korea did manage to build nuclear weapons and Iran is well on its way to doing so. The 2 who decided to abandon their nuclear ambitions, Iraq and Libya, are the ones who've suffered most by endless sanctions, travel bans, bombardments, and other penalties. Nobody is attacking North Korea now, and Iran has obviously noticed.
