Oh Allah. Take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people…do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.

So said Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi in a sermon on Al-Jazeera TV in January 2009. As the Anti-Defamation League notes in a helpful overview of Qaradawi’s life and dubious achievements, he has a “long record of inciting violence against Jews and Israel”—and, one should add, against others as well.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi was born in Egypt in 1926 and joined the Muslim Brotherhood as a student in 1942. He graduated from Al-Azhar University in 1953. From 1949 to 1961 he was arrested several times for his activities in the Brotherhood, and in 1961 he moved to Qatar where he lives to this day.

By now Qaradawi is one of the most influential theologians of the Sunni Muslim world. His weekly sermon on Al-Jazeera, “Sharia and Life,” has a worldwide audience of about 60 million. In 1999 he founded the website IslamOnline, which, as the ADL describes it, “contains articles and religious rulings which support violence against non-Muslims, as well as anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and anti-American content.” And Qaradawi’s more than 40 books have been translated into many languages and disseminated throughout the world.

Qaradawi also has a vast institutional empire. Despite having been banned from the U.S. since 1999, he is chairman—in absentia—of the Michigan-based Islamic American University; founder and president of the Qatar-based International Association of Muslim Scholars; chairman and president of the Dublin-based European Council for Fatwa and Research; and president of the Saudi-based Union of Good, a “charity” organization that funnels money to Hamas and has been on the U.S. State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations since 2008.

That Qaradawi, a relentless rabble-rouser and inciter to mass murder, has amassed so much honor, prestige, and influence is not, to put it mildly, encouraging.

Do you think that you could maybe make it easier for readers to see all 10 of these hatemongers? I got as far as #2 and then there were no more prompts to continue reading Mr. Hornick's article.

It appears to me to be a classic case of following Muhammad, and worshiping my god of the Kaabba. I bet this opens up individuals to Demon possession. The hate is the give away.

"In Qaradawi’s case, the line between “theologian” and “homicidal maniac”—or perhaps “genocidal maniac”—is a thin one."

Charmed, I'm sure.

Quite a vivid description.

You are up against a predictably oddball expression of race-based political correctness when comes to perceptions of this type of Islam within the West. Not least of this is the idea that any religion NOT Christian is a-okay. Even better if you can tie in colonialism, although in real history, it is the linguistically-Aramaic and Hebrew who have been colonized by men with names like Qaradawi.

To show how typically oddball, a gay female editor put out an "entirely Muslim/Arabic" issue of an online magazine in response to an open letter by yet another female writer in that general community about the inadvisability of Muslims insisting on that "Ground Zero" mosque.

The editor ignored the giant ape in the room that conclusively shows her rights and safety as a gay woman in much of the Middle East would be about zero.

Nevertheless this moron can "see racism" in J.R.R. Tolkien: "Tolkien’s Southrons and Easterlings were pretty much Africans and Middle Easterners with the VINs filed off."

This moron can write this: "Misogyny in the West is coming up and it’s a gross, miserable, chthonic thing swirling at our feet."

Islam is in a PC memory hole while the naughty West is under a microscope with context stripped away. Israel suffers from the same context having been stripped away until Jews are portrayed as having landed in Palestine like the Normandy invasion.

This is what Jewish identity has as allies and enemies, morons, with not a lot in between. In a world like that, reality is a meaningless concept. Qaradawi has been pronounced "innocent" far in advance of anything he actually does and so what he does is irrelevant.

Mr. Obvious [Hornick], proves once and for all that water is indeed wet. Next up, night follows day, and his triumphant conclusion, sun rises in east.
