Al Qaradawi - "We Are Fighting In The Name Of Religion, In The Name Of Islam, Which Makes This Jihad An Individual Duty"

Ken Livingstone considers this man to be a moderate Muslim whilst labelling those who protest against his Nazi reminiscent hate speeches as bigots. Well, now you can judge for yourself, watch the video and decide. Is Qaradawi a moderate and if he isn't, then are you a bigot? (don't worry if you're confused, I've never found anything the Mayor has said to make much sense)

Transcript (click the picture to watch the video):

Following are excerpts from a program with Sheik Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, aired on Qatar TV on February 25, 2006.

Yousef Al-Qaradhawi: Our war with the Jews is over land, brothers. We must understand this. If they had not plundered our land, there wouldn't be a war between us.


We are fighting them in the name of Islam, because Islam commands us to fight whoever plunders our land, and occupies our country. All the school of Islamic jurisprudence - the Sunni, the Shiite, the Ibadhiya - and all the ancient and modern schools of jurisprudence - agree that any invader, who occupies even an inch of land of the Muslims, must face resistance. The Muslims of that country must carry out the resistance, and the rest of the Muslims must help them. If the people of that country are incapable or reluctant, we must fight to defend the land of Islam, even if the local [Muslims] give it up.

They must not allow anyone to take a single piece of land away from Islam. That is what we are fighting the Jews for. We are fighting them... Our religion commands us... We are fighting in the name of religion, in the name of Islam, which makes this Jihad an individual duty, in which the entire nation takes part, and whoever is killed in this [Jihad] is a martyr. This is why I ruled that martyrdom operations are permitted, because he commits martyrdom for the sake of Allah, and sacrifices his soul for the sake of Allah.

We do not disassociate Islam from the war. On the contrary, disassociating Islam from the war is the reason for our defeat. We are fighting in the name of Islam.


They fight us with Judaism, so we should fight them with Islam. They fight us with the Torah, so we should fight them with the Koran. If they say "the Temple," we should say "the Al-Aqsa Mosque." If they say: "We glorify the Sabbath," we should say: "We glorify the Friday." This is how it should be. Religion must lead the war. This is the only way we can win.


Everything will be on our side and against Jews on [Judgment Day], 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. It says "servant of Allah," not "servant of desires," "servant of women," "servant of the bottle," "servant of Marxism," or "servant of liberalism"... It said servant of Allah."

When the Muslims, the Arabs, and the Palestinians enter a war, they do it to worship Allah. They enter it as Muslims. The hadith says: "Oh Muslim." It says "oh Muslim," not "oh Palestinian, Jordanian, Syrian, or Arab nationalist." No, it says: "Oh Muslim." When we enter [a war] under the banner of Islam, and under the banner of serving Allah, we will be victorious.

Ken's such a twat. Got no sympathy for his suspension.

Qaradhawi is repungant, and so is Ken through association. And keep on posting! Don't know how busy you are recently but it would be nice to see you "out & about"

I tend to lurk around these two mostly

Great fun. Lot's of arguments.

Could always to do with a bit of ideological back up, especially when lefties attack!


i visit harrys place a bit, never checked out pickled politics, i'll be sure to check it out


for example the following site, which I am sure you must already have:

Oh and Jonz, I love you darling BUT a twat is something I identify with and is really not such a bad thing, unless of course you're gay... But even so... Let's try to think up some especially male handles, like 'prick' or something... for these assholes, shall we?


Pleaaase continue with your good work. I really enjoy your site and rely on it for the latest news from places near and far.

btw, Juanita, if you want to leave a link to any story, just leave it on any comments section and hopefully I'll pick it up


Read the latest post on Harry's Place re: Ken Livingstone and anti-Semitism. There's nothing new about him seeing Zionists behind everything and, ethically, he's not that different from Galloway, it's just that unGorgeous George is a lot more ambitious.
