The Islamic movement paid tribute to Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the senior leaders of the "Muslim Brotherhood" and the head of the instigators against Israel. "Dedicated his life to the defense of Islam"


Senior officials in the Ra'am party and the southern faction of the Islamic movement paid tribute to Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the leaders of the "Muslim Brotherhood" and the greatest instigator against Israel, after he died during Rosh Hashanah.

In the obituary issued by the southern faction of the Islamic movement affiliated with the Ra'am party, and published by the journalist Suleiman Maswade, it is written that "Al Qaradawi dedicated his life to protecting the religion of Islam and Muslims."

Al Qaradawi, was one of the greatest instigators against Israel, supported the suicide attacks of the terrorist organization Hamas, and issued a FATWA ruling that "every Jew is a legitimate target for the "resistance".

The "Muslim Brotherhood" movement, with which al-Qaradawi was identified and was considered its spiritual leader, was declared a terrorist organization in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Reports And Clips On Al-Qaradawi From The MEMRI Archives
Media reported today that the Qatar-based Egyptian cleric Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, who heads the International Union of Muslim Scholars and is considered a spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, has been removed from Interpol's "wanted" list and that all international arrest warrants against him have been dropped.[1]
MEMRI has published numerous reports on Al-Qaradawi over the years – for example, on his 2006 justification of killing Israeli women and children in suicide operations, his 2005 praise for jihad and martyrdom, his view, expressed in 2004, that Jews should be excluded from interfaith dialogue, his May 2013 wish for personally dying as a martyr, and his fatwa calling for abducting and killing American civilians in Iraq.
He is also known for making virulent and specifically anti-Semitic statements. In January 2008, he said on Al-Jazeera TV that Allah had imposed Hitler upon the Jews to punish them, and called for a second Holocaust, saying, "Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers" – i.e. the Muslims (see MEMRI TV Clip Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler Upon The Jews To Punish Them – "Allah Willing, The Next Time Will Be At The Hand Of The Believers").
