Muslim Brotherhood Leader Sheikh Qaradawi supports Obama’s strike in Syria: “Allah pits the oppressors one against the other”

Further proof that Obama’s Syrian military intervention will employ the US army to aid the global jihad and assist in the brutal resurrection of the global caliphate.

Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi is one of the most influential clerics in Sunni Islam. He currently serves as president of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFW), and is a highly influential spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. Qaradawi has twice (in 1976 and 2004) turned down opportunities to serve as the Brotherhood’s highest-ranking leader. His preference, he explains, is to avoid tying himself to “any movement which might constrain my actions, even if this is the Muslim Brotherhood under whose umbrella I grew and which I so defended.” (Source: DTN)

Send this video to your Congressmen. Teach, educate the badly misinformed. The media is merely a PR political organization for the most dangerous President (and his party) in American history. We must take our freedom and future into our own hands and right this ship before it hits the iceberg.

“Leading Sunni Scholar Qaradhawi in Favor of U.S. Strike on Syria: Muslims Cannot Do It, So Let the Oppressors Fight One Another” MEMRI, September 6, 2013 (thanks to Jihadwatch)

Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered by leading Sunni scholar Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi, which aired on Qatar TV on September 6, 2013:

Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: If only we could be the ones to retaliate against those people [the Syrian regime]. I wish there were an Islamic power capable of punishing these people. If only there was an Islamic power capable of drawing the line for the oppressors, and imposing upon them the punishment they deserve.

We do not have such power, however, so if they are punished by others, it is better than nothing. Allah pits the oppressors one against the other. The ancients used to say: “Oh Allah, keep the oppressors busy with one another, and let us emerge from among them intact.” We do not pity those people when they are attacked by whoever strikes them, because they deserve to be attacked, just like they attacked the Muslims.


More on Qaradawi:

During the 2007 Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) trial (which examined evidence of HLF’s fundraising on behalf of Hamas), the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 of HLF’s “unindicted co-conspirators” and “joint venturers.” Among HLF’s unindicted co-conspirators were many individuals affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and/or Hamas, including Qaradawi, Omar Ahmad, Abdurahman Alamoudi, Abdallah Azzam, Jamal Badawi, Mohammad Jaghlit, Mousa Abu Marzook, Abdel Aziz Rantisi, and Ahmed Yassin. Among the organizations named on the list were the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Hamas, INFOCOM, the Islamic Association for Palestine, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Arab Youth Association, the United Association for Studies and Research, and the North American Islamic Trust.

In a January 2009 speech that aired on Al Jazeera, Qaradawi said:

“Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hands of the believers.”

At a January 2009 “Gaza Victory Rally” in Qatar, Qaradawi declared:

“The only thing that I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life with martyrdom. Praise be to Allah…. [Allah] will not allow these people [Jews] to continue to spread corruption in the land. We wait for the revenge of Allah to descend upon them, and Allah willing, it will be by our own hands.”

Qaradawi then besought the deity not to “spare a single one of them.” “Oh Allah,” he said, “count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.”

In a February 2010 interview with BBC Arabic, Qaradawi reaffirmed his support for suicide bombings:

“I supported martyrdom operations. This is a necessary thing, as I told them in London. Give the Palestinians tanks, airplanes, and missiles, and they won’t carry out martyrdom operations. They are forced to turn themselves into human bombs, in order to defend their land, their honor, and their homeland.”

On another occasion in 2010, Qaradawi made it clear that every Muslim had a duty to obey the commandments of the Prophet Muhammad, regardless of how brutal or barbaric they might be: “If you believe that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, then you must obey him—for he does not command except that which is good. So, even if he tells you to kill, you must.”

In an October 2010 interview with Al-Jazeera, Qaradawi was asked whether Muslims should try to acquire atomic weapons “to terrorize their enemies.” He replied that such an objective was permissible, saying he was “happy” that Pakistan already possessed such a weapon. According to Qaradawi, the procurement of such agents of mass destruction was in compliance with Koranic verses urging Muslims “to terrorize thereby the enemy of God and your enemy.”

Also in late 2010, Qaradawi stated: “We must irrigate [the] tree of freedom with our blood. We must not leave the Palestinians alone.” Every Muslim, he elaborated, “must play his part to help our brothers in Palestine until they obtain their right. Not one inch of the Land of Islam must remain in the grasp of infidels and occupiers.”

Qaradawi has also been outspoken about such topics as apopstasy, rape, and homosexuality. For example:

  • According to Qaradawi, Islam’s practice of executing apostates has served to ensure Islam’s survival since the 15th century: “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment Islam wouldn’t exist today.”
  • When asked if female rape victims should be punished under Islam, Qaradawi replied: “To be absolved from guilt, the raped woman must have shown some sort of good conduct…. Since Islam addresses women to maintain their modesty, as not to open the door for evil…. [F]or a rape victim to be absolved from guilt, she must not be the one that opens … her dignity for deflowering.”
  • In 2004 Qaradawi wrote a fatwa that presented burning or stoning as acceptable penalties for those who practice homosexuality, adding: “While such punishments may seem cruel, they have been suggested to maintain the purity of the Islamic society and to keep it clean of perverted elements.”

Due to his support for Palestinian terrorism, Qaradawi has been barred from entering the United States since 1999. In February 2008, the United Kingdom also denied his visa on grounds that “[t]he UK will not tolerate the presence of those who seek to justify any act of terrorist violence..
