Following are excerpts from an address delivered by Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi, Chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on February 21, 2011:
Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: The truth is that I do not want to say anything to Al-Qadhafi, because one should only address people who are reasonable. People who are not reasonable should not be addressed. That man is no longer reasonable. He has been crazy for a long time.
Among the signs of his madness, as we have seen, he wanted to be a philosopher, and come up with theories, like Marx and Mao Tsetung... He invented the Third Theory...
We have seen his peculiar behavior. He has become the laughing stock of every Arab summit. He's the joker. He travels all over the world in his colorful clothes, carrying his tent with him all over the globe, no matter the cost, in which he hosts his visitors...
This man is not even worthy of me addressing him. I thought that his son had a grain of sense or belief in him. He is called Seif Al-Islam ["Sword of Islam"), but he is one of the swords of pre-Islamic ignorance.
I hereby issue a fatwa to the officers and soldiers who can kill Mu'ammar Al-Qadhafi: Whoever among them can fire a bullet at him, thus relieving the country and the people of him, should do so. This man wants to annihilate the people, so I am protecting the people.

This is the middle eastern version of Alice’s Wonderland!
The Chairman of an Islamic scholars union orders what can only be termed a “hit’ on the leader of a neighboring nation who is involved in an insurrection (civil war?).
Neither seem to be normal mentally, at least to most westerners. This would make for a terrific opera, especially the depiction of Gaddafi’s all-girl entourage in garish uniforms!
We will be seeing the name Qaradawi in the headlines a lot more in the coming years. He is the next Khomeini. Iran wasn’t ever able to capitalize on Khomeini’s charisma to build a single Muslim empire in the Mid East because it is Persian and Shiite, whereas most Middle Easterners are Arab and Sunni. Qaradawi, as an Arab and a Sunni, won’t have Khomeini’s problem. Here’s an impression of Qaradawi from Rubin Reports (http://rubinreports.blogspot.com/search?q=qaradawi):
Qaradawi, though some in the West view him as a moderate, supports the straight Islamist line: anti-American, anti-Western, wipe Israel off the map, foment Jihad, stone homosexuals, in short the works.
One of Qaradawi’s initiatives has been urging Muslims to settle in the West, of which he said, that powerful West, which has come to rule the world, should not be left to the influence of the Jews alone. He contends that the three major threats Muslims face are Zionism, internal integration, and globalization. To survive, he argues, Muslims must fight the Zionists, Crusaders, idolators, and Communists.
Make no mistake, Qaradawi is not some fossilized Islamic ideologue. He is brilliant and innovative, tactically flexible and strategically sophisticated. He is subtle enough to sell himself as a moderate to those who don’t understand the implications of his words or look beneath the surface of his presentation.
What is his view of both the Mubarak regime and the young, Facebook-flourishing liberals who made the revolution? As he said in 2004: Some Arab and Muslim secularists are following the U.S. government by advocating the kind of reform that will disarm the nation from the elements of strength that are holding our people together.
Have no doubt. It is Qaradawi, not bin Ladin, who is the most dangerous revolutinary Islamist in the world and he is about to unleash the full force of his power and persuasion on Egypt.
Who are you going to bet on being more influential, a Google executive and an unorganized band of well-intentioned liberal Egyptians or the world champion radical Islamist cleric?

This is scary. A Fatwa I agree with.
The neat thing about these ladies in uniform are the little olive drab shoulder bags they carry to keep vows of chastity in.
So who are they? They are Gadaffi’s version of “hareem.”I mean Gadaffi has more than a passing resemblence to Hugh Hefner and his Play Boy Mansion.
No wonder the Muslim Brotherhood is out to kick his butt.Empowering women like this flies directly in the face of Sharia and the Islamic culture of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Kill Gadaffi! Kill him now!!( sarc.)
I kinda want to root for Gadaffi.
Here is a good lowdown on the virgin body guards.
Nice to see that Slick Willie's Civility Institute is already having an impact.
