Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi is the most influential Sunni Islamist in the world. In 2003, he issued a fatwa calling for the killing of American troops in Iraq. Now the Barack Hussein Obama administration has turned to al-Qaradawi to mediate secret negotiations between the United States and the Taliban.
al-Qaradawi says that Islam must dominate the world, under a global caliphate governed by sharia. He maintains that Islam will conquer Europe and America. He says that the conquering will be done via a da’ wah, a mission to spread Islam. However, the da’ wah will not spread a set of spiritual principles or beliefs. Rather it works incrementally to impose a social system with its own authoritarian legal code, covering all aspects of life and instituting a caste system in which women and non-Muslims are subjugated.
Da’ wah uses pressure, such as political campaigns, infiltration of the media, control of the education system, to advance the acceptance of Islamic principles, and to limit the principles of free speech and economic liberty that are found in competing systems, such as is western civilization. To maintain that da’ wah is non-violent is foolish, suggesting that the mission of da’ wah is to rationalize terrorism as divinely mandated self-defense.
al-Qaradawi publicly praises Hamas’ mass-murder attacks and suicide bombings. “They are not suicide operations,” he stated. “These are heroic martyrdom operations. The martyr operations is the greatest of all sorts of jihad in the cause of Allah.”
In 2009, al-Qaradawi prayed that Allah would kill all Jews: “Oh Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people. Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers and kill them, down to the very last one.”
After thousands of young Americans died to protect the United States from jihadist terror, President Obama seeks to end the Afghanistan war by asking a-Qaradawi to help him strike a deal that will install the Taliban as part of the sharia state we have been building in Afghanistan. And this mediation includes the release of Mohammed Fazl, a ‘high-risk detainee’ and a senior commander of the Taliban army, held at the Guantanamo Bay military prison. The Obama administration will also agree to the lifting of UN sanctions against the Taliban. Further, it will recognize the Taliban as a legitimate political party. In return, the Taliban will pretend to forswear violence, to sever ties with al-Qaeda, and to cooperate with the rival Karzai regime.
So now the shameless President Barack Hussein Obama has “reached out” to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi to mediate with the Taliban. Is there nothing Obama won’t do?
But that’s just my opinion.
