Aisha Khadafy repeatedly set fire to have in fits of rage

It sounds par for the course - the spoiled daughter of a dictator showing a lack of gratitude. Aisha Khadafy, Colonel Khadafy's lawyer daughter should watch it, though, as she's persona non grata around the world. She's recently been kicked out of her Algerian safe-house as she repeatedly kept setting fire to it in fits of anger.

The beautiful -- if spoiled and impudent daughter of Colonel Moammar Khadafy, Aisha Khadafy has worn out her welcome with her host nation of Algeria.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The bleached blonde 37-year-old has an arrest warrant against her after fleeing Libya when her father was deposed and then killed two years ago.

Western-educated, Aisha Khadafy has been pronounced the "Claudia Schiffer of North Africa." Things haven't been going that well for her recently. She was left widowed in the bombing raids which destroyed Khadafy's regime, leaving her as a single mother.
Khadafy's only biological daughter, she spoke out in support of her father throughout the civil war.
"He is my remedy against pain and my fortress against grief," she said.

Aisha also spoke up for Saddam Hussein following the Iraq War. "When you have an occupying army coming from abroad, raping your women and killing your own people, it is only legitimate that you fight them," she said at the time.

In 2006 she married her cousin Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi, an army colonel with whom she had three children. Qahsi was killed during a bombing raid on one of Gaddafi's compounds.
Arriving in neighboring Algeria with other family members, she and her relatives were given a presidential residence in the south of the country.

Formerly a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, it has emerged that Aisha was once so angry at her father that she kept vandalizing furniture and attacking guards.

"She ended up blaming Algeria for many of her problems, and also began starting fires in the house," said a government source in Algiers.

"Shelves in the library went up in flames, as she regularly attacked army personnel looking after her safety."

The situation became untenable when she destroyed a portrait of Algerian president Abdul Aziz Bouteflika last year, Algerian newspaper Ennahar reported.

Aisha being was summarily kicked out of the country, and eventually found sanctuary with Oman, Britain's closest ally in the Gulf.

Aisha, Khadafy's widow, Safia, and sons Mohammad and Hannibal, as well as their children, has all been living there since October 2012.

Since Khadafy's demise, there have been fears that family members will revive his legacy, and return to the blighted North African country to try and gain power again.
