Skip to comments.Sheikh Qaradawi: The Caliphate in Iraq is Invalid
Posted on 08/28/2014 2:44:39 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, who is the head of the Muslim Scholars Association and who serves as spiritual mentor for the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, attacked the Islamic Caliphate State established by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in large parts of Syria and Iraq. In an interview with a Turkish news agency, Qaradawi said that the caliphate is meaningless as it does not meet the requirements as dictated by Islam.
It should be noted that Sheikh Qaradawi supports Hamas, operates a jihad against Israel, and in the past has made rulings permitting suicide bombings ...

Can he do the same regarding the presidency here in the US?
Get out the popcorn.
Al Zaraharwi has also made similar edicts. There is an ongoing power struggle right now to figure out who will lead the Sunni Jihadists.
By the way, where is Mooki?
Who knew a ‘legal’ wrangle could throw a spanner in the works
Yuh. Gotta get right with Sharia. THEN you can commit genocide and rape toddlers before you hang them. Well, do over.
Studied Arabic, and I don’t even want to try to pronounce that name. Sounds like a car trying to start.
Further proof that the Middle East is first and foremost a tribal society.
go figure. it looks pretty authentic to me
Infringement on his territory; dang straight it is invalid.
Talk about aiming low! You're best role model is a lying illiterate murdering thieving pedophile!
RE: Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, who is the head of the Muslim Scholars Association and who serves as spiritual mentor for the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas
His pronouncement are just as INVALID based on the organization he mentors.
“I am a better class of Jihadi than you al-Baghdadi - Take that!”
This makes the case for a ground invasion even stronger. It’s about time somebody came and took those kids off of that.
Sure. Evil spider religion establishes absolute dictatorship and murders all unbelievers that aren’t sold for slaves. What part of Sharia does that fall short of?
He did not get his baksheesh from Bagdhadi. (Probably gold, $500 Euro notes, and some young boys.)
Once he has his baksheesh, he will pledge lifelong loyalty to the Caliph of the Islamic State.
Anybody who draws the biggest crowd is the HMFIC under Islam.
There is no “Pope.” Anybody can call himself a mullah.
Equivalent would be a cat-fight between Himmler and Eichmann as to who is more blood-thirsty.
Agreed ,you have two different jihadists competing for what passes a legitimacy in the region & the Shiek is losing support cause the Israelis won’t roll over & play dead. Instead they will shoot back with effect, while ISIS is having a great time hacking off the heads of little kids & impaling them on sharpened sticks like they have done in Mosul Iraq. WE will be going back to war in the Middle East but this time let us play cowboys & muslims instead of PC hand wringers .

Is it possible, that they “don’t have a plan” also?
IS commits atrocities on camera, and the pics circulate. Officialdom distances itself from IS. Atrocities continue off-camera.
Sounds like a plan to me.
Firstly i don’t care what that sheikh thinks. Secondly, any US administration, to stop Islamic State, AQ, etc.. could’ve seriously stated or made initial moves to blow up mecca, medina, and any other Islamic related mosques, shrines and so on if AQ, IS, Iranian mullahs, et al continued with their overt & covert international thuggery. No one doubts the devastation the US military can bring. It would’ve put Islamists, muslims & any other related grps in their place. Then, encouraged a more sane dialogue & actions by Islamic scholars & co. Instead all we’ve seen is accommodation, appeasement and facilitation of various Islamic grps & their never ending, outrageous demands abroad & in the US. In the end it’ll either come down to the US taking actions per those initially stated above, or the Islamists will do to the West what the US just doesn’t want to do to the Islamists & the muslim world. 12 yrs ago people could be fooled by those (east & west) who wanted to windowdress ‘Islamic’ matters but increasingly not. Btw, same goes for US allies & western countries such as France & UK.
Blow up Mecca. Then there won’t be any Islam to deal with, just a bunch of lost souls to be turned on to the glories of Festivus and Scientology.
Oh i think the concept of islam will remain even if mecca was blown up. But it’ll considerably rein in the muslim world allowing for follow up actions to change islam as we know it. The follow up actions will be just as important if not more.
No Mecca: No Islam. I wrote this on “View From the Right” a few years back and I still stand behind it.
HOW ISLAMAND THE EVER-PRESENT THREAT IT POSES TO HUMANITYCOULD BE BROUGHT TO AN END IN ONE, SIMPLE STEP
Your commenter James P. writes:
Muslim refusal to engage in rational debate, engage in self-examination, or permit humorous attacks on their religion are not weaknesses. They are mighty strengths! They are not Islams brittle glass jaw; they are its bulging biceps! These attributes generate fear in their enemies, and cause their enemies to seek to avoid provoking Muslims and to appease Muslims when they are angry.
I agree that these attributes of Islam have proven to be a great advantage to it as a war religion for 1,400 years. However, we are now seeing before our eyes a paradigm shift that may bring about the end of Islam in the present generation. Samuel Huntington spoke of Islams bloody borders, but until the modern era, the true scope of the horror was only realized by the victims living on those borders who were under constant attack (the ultimately unsuccessful and now condemned counter-jihad we call the Crusades being the notable exception). Five hundred or a thousand miles from Islams bloody borders, it was always difficult to make people understand the existential threat Islam presented to all non-Muslim societies. After its early rampant break out period, when seen in the context of each generation, Islam appeared to be merely biting off one more small slice of territory at a time. And on it marched, generation after generation, always moving forward, rarely being pushed back, impervious to self-examination or reformation, as deadly in our modern times as it was at the beginning.
That is changing now, because today the entire world sees Islams true face revealed when Muslims go into these insane rages after perceived insults to Mohammed. Their ingrained lack of introspection means that Muslims can easily be provoked into going beyond the stealth-mode they normally follow beyond Islams bloody borders, waking up the world to the existential threat Islam poses to all non-Muslim societies. Down the centuries, the West has often had appeasers and accommodationists as leaders, men who were willing to cut short-term local deals that over time always led to incremental Islamic advances. And these weak Western leaders were the only men who mattered, era by era. Today, as a contrast, average citizens around the world are beginning to understand how to push Islams automatic rage buttons, and this changes the former equation in a fundamental way. As you mentioned, videos released by lone, non-state actors at the right time could be used to torpedo the next sell-out by Western appeasers, such as over the inclusion of Turkey in the EU.
Another fundamental difference today from prior centuries is that millions of people understand that Islam has another tremendous weakness, another glass jaw, and that is their worship of the black moon rock in Mecca as Islams literal god-head. This black rock enshrined in the corner of the Kaaba is essential to Islam in a way that nothing in Judaism or Christianity is. The Cross lives in the hearts of Christians, and Christianity would not be destroyed if Jerusalem or Rome were destroyed. But that physical black rock in Mecca is the hard drive of Islam. Muslims believe that it contains all of the sins of all of the observant followers of the Prophet since the time of Mohammed, as sort of an Islamic Doomsday Book. Two of the Five Pillars of Islam involve the physical worship of that black moon rock. One is the Hajj to Mecca where pilgrims walk in a circle around the rock, and the other is the five-time daily prayer performed in its direction. (The other three pillars are ephemeral: the Shahada conversion prayer, the tithe, and observing Ramadan.) A religion that is impervious to change or self-examination (which James P says are strengths) cannot suddenly be reduced to The Three Pillars of Islam after 1,400 unbroken years as the Five Pillars of Islam.
In ancient Islamic history, the black moon rock was once stolen by a competing tribe, but after a brief time it was found. Islam carried on because nobody outside of a very small circle of imams even knew the rock was missing before it was replaced. But if Mecca was suddenly turned into a giant crater, there would be no way to conceal the fact from the world at large, including every Muslim. Today, observant Muslims believe that if every infidel nation fired every rocket and bomb at Mecca, Allah would turn them back or stop them in mid-flight. It is impossible for observant Muslims to believe that the Infidels could destroy the Kaaba, which is literally the physical manifestation on earth of their greatest God.
The Crusaders were only able to retake Jerusalem for a short time, and never got close to taking Mecca (assuming that they even understood its importance to Islam and had some notion of taking it). It was not within their power to threaten this source of Islams power and mystique, even if they had desired to do so. In all eras before modern mass communications, even if a Crusader commando team had made it to Mecca, it would not have changed anything, because the leading Muslim clerics would have replaced the black rock and rebuilt the Kaaba, and nobody would have ever known, in the same way that nobody at the time knew that the black rock had once been stolen and carried off.
Today, the entire world would know in the same hour that Mecca had been destroyed. This would destroy Islam as surely as the Aztec and Inca religions and empires were destroyed when the Spanish conquistadors captured and executed the living Gods at the center of the Aztec and Inca belief systems. If there is no Mecca, there is no Islam. There can be no Islam with three instead of five pillars, the two physical pillars having been destroyed by the Gods of the Infidels. Allahu Akbar means our God is greatest. This cannot be so if the Infidel God destroys the physical god-head of Islam, which is the black moon rock at the Kaaba in Mecca.
I have no expectation that any American president would order the destruction of Mecca, even if American cities had been destroyed with nuclear bombs sent from a Muslim country with a clear return address. However, not all nations are as hamstrung by self-doubt and political correctness as we are. Russia, India, and Israel, I am sure, have Mecca on their target list. If Moscow, New Delhi, or Tel Aviv were destroyed by an Islamic bomb, I believe that Mecca would be wiped off the planet Earth the same day, even the same hour.
And that would spell the end of Islam, after its unparalleled 1,400-year reign of terror.
No Mecca, no Islam, as long as the world witnesses Meccas physical annihilation. There will follow a period of madness, with many Muslims committing mass suicide and mass terror, but more of them will become atheists or convert to Christianity (the stronger horse). In all cases, Islam as we know it will be finished. After fourteen centuries, the steady mantra Our God is greatest cannot become We used to believe that our God was the greatest, but it was proven to be weaker, if not a fraud. The glass jaw of Islam, its inability to self-examine or reform in any way, will prove to be its Achilles heel. The 1,400-year run of murder and madness will at last come to an end. After sixty generations, we may be the one to witness its ultimate destruction and collapse.
is this real or just what he says in English and then something else in some other language?
That’s really good. A keyword there is strength. The muslim world resents & fears western strength but equally admires & respects it. They know as we do that we have the strength. The fact we don’t demonstrate that strength in a holistic way against them is viewed as a major weakness by them.
Sounds like a plan. No worries about starting WW III. That’s already well underway.
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Nine years old was the age of consent back in the 7th Century. If you didn’t break ‘em in young back then, they were likely to contract Cholera, or Typhus, or the Black Plague or something, and then you can’t get any more fun out of a chick. Besides, it wasn’t like you could be sure the girl would be available once the next barbarian horde went through town. So Mo had to slam her down and do the deed as soon as her bones were strong enough that he wasn’t liable to break anything important.
Don't assume old Moe didn't Lester her in many other ways from 6 on!
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Lestering is greatly maligned. It’s really very therapeutic and healthy for children who are going to be vaginally penetrated when they are nine. It gets them used to contact with men, so as to avoid traumatizing them on their wedding night. Besides, while you see a six-year-old who’s been forced to felate a fifty-year-old profit, the profit knew that he was giving her a healthy drink. While you see an eight-year-old being bent over for anal, the profit saw that she needed an enema for her constipation, and was only too happy to oblige, and her father no doubt thanked him.
So in order to make proper use of his young putative bride, the profit had to lester her until she was nine, and then git ‘er done at that tender age, lest she be carried off by a barbarian horde other than his own before their sacred marriage vows could be consum-ate-it.
