Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi's History Lesson Update*

In yesterday's NY Times, David Kirkpatrick's report, After Long Exile, Sunni Cleric Takes Role in Egypt, claimed that in his speech Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi "... struck themes of democracy and pluralism, long hallmarks of his writing and preaching." has published an extensive compilation of videos and translations of this speech and others and I invite you to look at their site. In the meantime, here is the Sheik's history lesson: how the Dhimmi Jews turned against their compassionate Moslem protectors, aspire to conquer the world and must now be punished. Pay special attention to his adoring audience.

*Jeffrey Goldberg quotes from a paper about Qaradawi by Dave Rich and Mark Gardner in Dissent should help to convince that his intentions towards Jews are not pure. 


  1. With all the internal problems Egypt has to deal with, your would think they could give it a break.

    This baffle's me. Ghomin is reported as the big, progressive, pro-democracy hero.

    From Wael Ghonim's Twitter Feed @Ghonim

    "I loved Sheikh Qaradawi Khutbah today. Was truly inspired when he said: Today I'm going to address both Muslims and Christians. Respect! 1:11 PM Feb 18th via web "


  2. And yet Wael Ghonim was turned away from Qaradawi's pulpit on Friday! How can one account for such cringing words after that public disgrace and dismissal?

  3. I'm just your average British/atheist/pro-Israel kind o' bloke that's had it up to here with all this antisemitic, islamofascist babble. A quick question for you: I have an unused 10-year British/EU passport. If I mailed it to Mossad, do you think they'd do me the honor of eradicating this Qaradawi lunatic?
