Meet­ing between Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, Hamas and Yusuf Qaradawi in Gaza

A senior mem­ber of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood’s Guid­ance Bureau in Egypt expressed sup­port for Hamas dur­ing a visit to Gaza on Wednesday.

Abder­rah­man Al-Bar, who is vis­it­ing Gaza with a del­e­ga­tion headed by rad­i­cal Mus­lim Broth­er­hood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Inter­na­tional Union of Mus­lim Schol­ars (IUMS), deliv­ered the greet­ings of Moham­mad Badie, the Gen­eral Guide of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, to Hamas leaders.

I report to you the greet­ings of the Gen­eral Guide of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and all of his broth­ers and our broth­ers in Egypt,” Al-Bar said. “They are all yearn­ing to be in this meet­ing and they are behind you with food and supply.”

Al-Bar also expressed his “over­whelm­ing hap­pi­ness to be in the com­pany of the Mujahid Imam, Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi,” and to “meet our broth­ers and beloved ones and the sym­bol of Jihad in this time.” 

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh described Qaradawi as “The Sheik of the Arab spring” and sug­gested that his visit a step toward the lib­er­at­ing all Pales­tin­ian land from the Israelis. The visit is “a first step towards Al-Quds, a first step towards Al-Aqsa, a first step towards Pales­tine — all Pales­tine,” he said.  

Dur­ing the meet­ing with Hamas, Dr. Salah Sul­tan, an anti-Semitic media per­son­al­ity and head of the Jerusalem com­mit­tee of the IUMS, said, “We hope, with the Will of God almighty, that this sig­nif­i­cant visit announces the inau­gu­ra­tion of a project to lib­er­ate al-Quds [Jerusalem] and Palestine.”

Qaradawi, who recently boy­cotted an inter­faith con­fer­ence in Doha because he refuses to dia­logue with Jews, report­edly said yes­ter­day, “This land has never once been a Jew­ish land. Pales­tine is for the Arab Islamic nation.”

OnIslam Publishes E-Book Denying Jewish Connection To Holy Land

An Egypt-based web­site that pro­vides reli­gious guid­ance to Mus­lims world­wide has released an e-book called “Time­line of Jerusalem (Al-Quds)” that denies any con­nec­tion between Jerusalem and Jews and depicts Israel as a state cre­ated through eth­nic cleansing.onislam-ebook

The e-book is avail­able on OnIslam.net, which is affil­i­ated with rad­i­cal Mus­lim Broth­er­hood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

Released in March 2013, the e-book con­tains three chap­ters: “Early His­tory,” “Cre­ation of Israel,” and “Sys­tem­atic Judaiza­tion of Al-Quds.” In the “Early His­tory” sec­tion, the book­let describes the Hebrew inva­sion of the Land of Canaan as “geno­ci­dal mas­sacres against the native Canaan­ite tribes.”

Sim­i­larly, in the sec­tion titled “Cre­ation of Israel,” Israel’s estab­lish­ment is char­ac­ter­ized as “a wave of geno­ci­dal mas­sacres against Pales­tini­ans. Many noto­ri­ous mas­sacres were cold-bloodedly com­mit­ted in Pales­tin­ian cities, such as Dir Yasin, Tan­tura, and Dawaymeh.”

The sec­tion on the “Sys­tem­atic Judaiza­tion of Al-Quds” describes Jew­ish vis­its to the Tem­ple Mount as provo­ca­tions by “Talmudic-minded set­tlers, who con­duct Tal­mu­dic rit­u­als and call for the demo­li­tion of Islamic shrines in Jerusalem.”

The author of the e-book, Khalid Amayreh, a Hebron-based Pales­tin­ian jour­nal­ist with ties to Hamas, attempts to estab­lish an exclu­sively Arab and Pales­tin­ian his­tor­i­cal iden­tity for Jerusalem’s ancient occu­pants. Amayreh pre­vi­ously pro­duced an e-book titled, “The Nazis of our time: The creep­ing Israeli geno­cide against the Palestinians.”

OnIs­lam fre­quently fea­tures arti­cles on Qaradawi and pub­lishes fat­was express­ing sup­port for “mar­tyr­dom oper­a­tions,” or sui­cide bomb­ings against Israel. The site also includes arti­cles and reli­gious rul­ings sup­port­ing vio­lence against homo­sex­u­als, as well as anti-Semitic and anti-Israel content.

For exam­ple, a March 2013 fatwa by Maher al-Huli, the head of the fatwa depart­ment in the Pales­tine Schol­ars Asso­ci­a­tion, was pub­lished on the web­site, rul­ing that non-Palestinian Mus­lims should not travel to visit the Al Aqsa mosque “while it remains cap­tive by the state of the Jews.” The web­site also has a por­tal ded­i­cated to the issue of homo­sex­u­al­ity, which con­tains sev­eral arti­cles denounc­ing homo­sex­u­al­ity as “sex­ual per­ver­sions” that “spread cor­rup­tion on earth.”

Qaradawi On Doha Interfaith Conference: Keep Jews Out!

Rad­i­cal Mus­lim Broth­er­hood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi derided the 10th annual Doha inter­faith con­fer­ence held in Qatar last week for includ­ing Jews.qaradawi-doha

Dur­ing his April 26 Fri­day ser­mon at the Omar Bin al-Khattab Mosque in Doha, Qaradawi said he decided to boy­cott the con­fer­ence because he can­not dia­logue with Jews. “…I can­not be with [sic] a con­fer­ence that includes the oppres­sor Jews,” Qaradawi said.

No way I will put my hand in their hands,” Qaradawi added. “Their hands are soiled with blood. Their hands are the hands of killing, the hands of tyranny and the hands of injus­tice. I can­not con­t­a­m­i­nate my hands by putting it in their hands.”

Qaradawi ini­tially announced his inten­tion to boy­cott the con­fer­ence in an inter­view with the Qatari daily news­pa­per Al-Arab on April 22. “I decided to not par­tic­i­pate, so that I would not sit with the Jews on one plat­form… the Jews are usurp­ing Pales­tine and al-Aqsa Mosque and destroy­ing the houses of God…” Qaradawi told Al-Arab reporter.

In the same inter­view, Qaradawi crit­i­cized all efforts to have a dia­logue with other reli­gious groups, claim­ing they are useless.

Qaradawi pre­vi­ously declined to par­tic­i­pate in the 8th annual Doha con­fer­ence in 2011. In a state­ment released by Qaradawi’s office at that time, he report­edly said, “How can we con­duct a dia­logue in a time when they seize lands, shed blood, burn farms, and demol­ish houses? Palestine’s conun­drum has to be resolved first before we sit together at the same table.”

Qaradawi, who heads The Inter­na­tional Union of Mus­lim Schol­ars, has gar­nered world­wide appeal through a wide net­work of asso­ci­a­tions and by mak­ing use of var­i­ous media out­lets. Through his speeches and writ­ings, Qaradawi has demon­strated con­sis­tent sup­port of ter­ror­ist groups that seek to under­mine a peace­ful res­o­lu­tion of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
