Egyptian media is reporting on the arrival of Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi in Cairo. According to a report on Youm7:
Nov 24, 2011 00:11 Prominent Muslim Scholar Yusuf al-Qaradawi arrived at Cairo Airport Wednesday to follow the incidents in Tahrir Square. Demonstrators have clashed with security forces for the past five days. Qaradawi was accompanied by the head of the Karama Organization for Human Rights, Abdel Rahman Naaniny.
Qaradawis last known public appearance in Egypt was in February when he gave a sermon urging support for Hamas to a large crowd in Cairos Tahrir Square.
Qaradawi, a virulent anti-Semite is often referred to here as the most important leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood, an acknowledgement of his role as the de facto spiritual leader of the movement. In 2004, Qaradawi turned down the offer to lead the Egyptian Brotherhood after the death of the Supreme Guide. Based in Qatar, Sheikh Qaradawi has reportedly amassed substantial wealth through his role as Shariah adviser to many important Islamic banks and funds. He is also considered to be the spiritual guide for Hamas and his fatwas in support of suicide bombings against Israeli citizens were instrumental in the development of the phenomenon. A recent post has discussed a video compilation of Qaradawis extremist statements.
Qaradawi recently criticized Egypts ruling military council, calling for quick elections.
This filthy koranimal is the one who recently said that it wants to kill Jews(News flash!).
Now Egypt is going to the Islamic extremists. Nice work US administration.
Egypt’s very own ayatollah arrives to assert control over the “revolution”
all you females ululating in Tahrir must cover yourselves and obtain male chaperones...immediately
Iran had a revolution......then six months later had another revolution that brought the Ayatollah to power.
Iran has Egypt on the same track.

Gee, he wouldn't have anything to do with the purchase of a chunk of Barclays bank right around the time people were looking for Barclays to buy Lehman brothers and an election was in the balance, would he?
