Yusuf Speaking

Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, has enormous clout in the Arab world. He is as close as one can be to an Islamic pope. In the West, he is often (falsely) portrayed as a “moderate”, some even try to sell him as some kind of “reformer”. In reality he is anything but, as we can see here:

Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi Calls for Jihad of Self-Sacrifice and for Rejecting the Political Process

He called on Muslims to wage jihad of self-sacrifice, adding that those who are unable to do so should to take up other forms of jihad. He also criticized the Arab leaders for stubbornly clinging to the political process in general and to Arab peace initiatives specifically, which he claimed had achieved minimal results. Al-Qaradhawi praised Turkey for its contribution in the Gaza flotilla, and Mauritania for severing its ties with Israel.

“We Must Revive What… Hassan Al-Bana Called ‘the Death Industry'”

During a May 19-20, 2010 visit to Mauritania, Sheikh Al-Qaradhawi called upon Muslims to sacrifice themselves in order to achieve their rights: “We must revive what the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Al-Bana, called ‘the death industry’ in his article from the 1940s. The ummah today is in need of self-sacrifice for the sake of [achieving] rights, and thus victory will be attained.” He added that pressure should be exerted to liberate Palestine and that “the inertia that has harmed everyone can change if the ummah finds the men who excel at dying for the sake of Allah.”

The Palestinians Wage Jihad With Both with Their Money and Their Blood, So We Must at Least Help with Money

In a Friday sermon on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of the Nakba, Al-Qaradhawi called for jihad in order to return Palestine to the Palestinians: “The right of the Muslims to Palestine and [other lands] will be [realized] only by force. We can only realize our rights through resistance… We must stand beside our brothers, the mujahideen. I call [on the Muslims] to set forth on jihad, and on all the factions to fight the enemy together as one. There is no room for division and disagreement; we must work together, especially since the war [now] encompasses all levels – military, political, economic, cultural, and religious.” Al-Qaradhawi stressed that he himself was praying to Allah to “help him fight the Zionists and cause loss of life among them, and that he be hit by a bullet that will separate his head from his body.” He stressed that “the best death a Muslim can hope for is not death in bed, but as a shahid on the battlefield for the sake of Allah.” Read it all, from MEMRI

Obama “Concerned” that Al-Qaeda Is Racist After Africans Are Killed in Bombings

Obama said in 2007 that preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.   Genocide in Iraq didn’t bother him, but suddenly after the African attacks last week President Obama is concerned that Al-Qaeda is racist. (Gateway Pundit)

Syrian Academic Living in France: In the West, Animals and Homosexuals Have More Rights than Arabs

“This is the West that is responsible for starving all of Palestine, not only for the freedom flotilla massacre. It cannot be expected to condemn the Zionists’ aggression against those who stand in solidarity with Palestine – when it is the one who handed Palestine over to the Zionists and who for 70 years has labored to permanently establish those perverts’ foothold on Arab-Islamic land.

  1. [He added that pressure should be exerted to liberate Palestine and that “the inertia that has harmed everyone can change if the ummah finds the men who excel at dying for the sake of Allah.”]

    Why are they in such a rush? When God is ready, He will give them the chance to die for allah en masse. Yousef might not want to be at the head of the queue, but the rest just need to take a number and wait their turn.
