Qatari Muslim Cleric Hate

Influential Islamic Cleric Calls on Muslims to Kill Jews
By Amihai Zippor

(IHC News, 1 March 2006) Speaking on Qatari television, highly influential Muslim cleric, Sheikh Yousef al-Karadawi called for the killing of Jews “in the name of Islam.”

“Everything will be on our side and against Jews on [Judgment Day],” al-Karadawi said.

“At that time, even the stones and the trees will speak, with or without words, and say: 'Oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there's a Jew behind me, come and kill him. They will point to the Jews,” he said.

He added that if Palestinians were not up to the job of destroying the invaders (Israel), other Muslims would complete it.

Al-Karadawi is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that spans Middle Eastern countries and calls for secular regimes in states like Egypt and Jordan to be replaced with Islamic law.

The terrorist organization Hamas is closely aligned with the Brotherhood and uses similar incitement and hatred against Israel and Jews in its founding charter.

Though Hamas says its war is with Israel and not with Jews in particular, its connections with the Brotherhood and the blatant antisemitic language found in its charter and in speeches by its leaders prove otherwise.

While Hamas has tried to moderate the way in which it presents its philosophy to the world, Israeli leaders have warned the international community not to be fooled by its new “political correctness.”

Like the Muslim Brotherhood, which assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat after he signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, the goal of Hamas is the same: the eradication of the State of Israel and a new Islamic state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.


Cleric Calls for ‘Day of Anger’ Against Pope's Remarks

A highly influential Muslim cleric is calling on Muslims to mark this coming Friday as a “day of anger,” to protest comments made by Pope Benedict XVI last week, which Muslims found offensive to Islam.

Sheikh Yousuf Al-‘Qara’dawi, the Qatar-based cleric who heads the World Union of Muslim Clerics, said that Friday should be a day of “rational anger.”
However, speaking on a program broadcast on the Qatar-based satellite channel Al-Jazeera, he urged “peaceful, not rash anger,” and asked Muslims not to target churches or places of worship.

He also called on Arab and Muslim ambassadors to the Vatican to submit protests in writing.

During a speech last Tuesday, the pope cited a medieval text which said that Muhammad’s teachings brought the world evil, comments that sparked angry protests throughout the Arab world.

Gunmen shot and killed an elderly Italian nun in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Sunday, in what many perceive as a possible angry retaliation to the pope’s remarks.

The nun, said to be in her 70s, was shot outside a nursing school and children’s hospital where she had taught for several years.

On Sunday, the pope apologized and said the views he cited did not reflect his own opinions. He said he was “deeply sorry” for the reactions in some countries to certain passages of his speech.

The apology was received with mixed feelings among Muslims. While some Muslims accepted the apology, others said it seemed that he regretted the angry reactions his comments caused, and not the actual comments.

Al-Qara’dawi said this was not considered an apology, as long as his comments still stood.

Al-Qara’dawi, 80, has been described as the leading and most influential cleric in the Muslim world.
