Video: Hamas leader slobbers all over “moderate” cleric Qaradawi

posted at 9:25 am on July 19, 2007 by Allahpundit

I’m posting this more for me than for you because I want it in the archives and at my fingertips the next time some shameless stooge from our media describes Qaradawi as a “moderate” per his condemnation of the 9/11 attacks. They’ve done it before (scroll all the way down) and they’ll do it again, notwithstanding his contempt for Jewish “Christkillers,” his nuance towards killing gays, and of course his notorious support for suicide bombing. They couldn’t have done it without him, says Meshaal:

[I]n his unequivocal fatwa, the sheik, may Allah reward him, considered martyrdom operations to be the most noble level of Jihad. That was unparalleled support for the people of Palestine, because, brothers and sisters, you cannot imagine how difficult it is psychologically for a young Palestinian man or woman to sacrifice themselves or what is most dear to them, only to encounter a conflict in their minds and hearts as to whether they are on the path of righteousness, or whether they are committing a religious violation.

There follows a short discussion of just how much worse than the Holocaust Israel’s treatment of Palestinians is. Click the image to watch.

It’s a shame Ken Livingstone wasn’t able to attend the press conference with his buds.

Well “moderate” is a relative term.

She is moderately pregnant.

“…you cannot imagine how difficult it is pychologically for a young Palestinian man…” to blow himself up expecting 72 virgins in Heaven and instead find himself in hell with 72 horny pigman demons.

Maybe this “moderate” will be next to lead the DNC in prayer

A genocide such as the Holocaust involves a population decline for the victims. For example, Poland’s Jewish population went from at least 3,000,000 to about 25,000 during the Holocaust. Gaza’s population has gone from 80,000 in 1948 to well over a million today – some say 1.5 million. Maybe al Qaradawi is confusing genocide with population explosion.

But I guess poulation explosion does have two meanings in the territories, so maybe genocide does too.

Yah, it’s totally tough for somebody to commit mass murder and then spend eternity in hell because he believed a demon possessed, mass murdering, plagerizing, pedophile. Tough indeed.

What about the Palestinians’ treatment of the Palestinians?

Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Lesbianism is not as bad as homosexuality, in practical terms.

Heh, in this sense he’s not that different from Western men. But seriously, it’s interesting to me how these radical preachy muslims can make exceptions for their own personal desires in the face of ‘what Allah says’…

It’s amazing how in one breath, he’ll say that the cause is just because of problems on Earth due to Humans. He’ll say they fight because they are being oppressed by humans on this earth, and it is the only way for them to get justice as humans for being oppressed by humans. It’s fine to say that they do it because they don’t have any other way of being heard politically, and they have no hope.

But then he says that they commit martyrdom ‘for Allah’. My question is is the killing of innocent people to end oppression on Earth from mortal people, or is it to advance Allah?

If it is the later, it would seem that Allah himself should be capable of fighting his battles and not need or want people to kill themselves while taking out other innocent Creations. But alas, I know reason isn’t encouraged in the Koran, or by ‘leaders’ in the Muslim world.

Just goes to prove that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.

They’re just following Muhammed’s lead. Isn’t that why muslims go apeshit over the Satanic Verses—because it hints that Muhammad made pronouncements to cover his own twisted personal life.

Hmmm…didn’t the prophet Muhammad make pronouncements that covered his own twisted personal life? Isn’t that why muslims hate the Satanic Verses?

Zach on July 19, 2007 at 12:52 PM

Sure did Zach. Child-bride Aisha noticed Muhammad’s revelations of convenience:

“It seems to me that your Lord hastens to satisfy your desire” – Aisha to Muhammad – 8th book Sahih Muslim

Well then, tell the rest of the islamafascist world to stop telling the ‘youths’ to STOP THE KILLING. Themselves and others.
Easy. Done. no more psychological difficulties.

encounter a conflict in their minds and hearts

CONFLICT? YOU PUT IT THERE, in your schools and lectures. It IS a SPIRITUAL VIOLATION.
Islam isn’t a spiritual religion, it’s a forced government of death squads.

Yet people keep saying, when are the moderates goingto speak up against these atrocities? Well a “moderate” spoke. Still waiting for one against the problem.

Neither of them ever donned a suicide bomb but encourages others to do so, does that make them “Chicken Hawks?”
