    This Qaradawy is a top adviser to the Muslim Brotherhood and the emir of Qatar. Though he is as radical as can be, he styles himself an expert on "Islamic democracy." He's issued fatwas permitting the killing of unborn Jews, Americans in Iraq, and even the killing of Muslim intellectuals as apostates. His definition of democracy is a state in which people are "free" to follow Hanbali sharia, as prescribed by the 12th century extremist cleric Ibn Taymiyyah. "There are those who maintain that democracy is the rule of the people, but we want the rule of Allah." (Speech given Friday, June 4, 2004; as reported by Dr. Shaker Al-Nabulsi) What people don't talk about is that the relatively liberal Caliph Al Mamun had the founder of the Hanbali school of Sunna, Ibn Hanbal, jailed (800s) for being too extremist; and that Abdul Wahhab was condemned in his own era (1700s) as a heretic by his own brother, as well as the Mufti of Mecca. Beware of anything connected with this Qaradawy.
