Regular readers of this blog know all too well the Islamist exploits of Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the international Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader and top strategist. As I reported recently on CBN News (click on the viewer below to watch), Qaradawi believes the day of a new Islamic Caliphate is dawning, thanks to the so-called Arab Spring.
He made this view abundantly clear recently in a meeting with leaders of the Brotherhood's Palestinian branch, Hamas. Here's more, from IPT News:
A Hamas delegation headed by the self-proclaimed Prime Minister of Gaza met Yusuf al Qaradawi, the highly influential Muslim Brotherhood theologian, in Qatar Saturday. In the love fest which followed, as reported on Qaradawi's website, "His Eminence also gave the people of Gaza and Palestine the good news that victory is near and at the door."
Along with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, the delegation included Yehya Al-Sinwar, a top security strategist, and his deputy Rawhi Mushtaha, recently released from long terms in Israeli prison as part of the prisoner swap. They invited Qaradawi to visit Gaza, where he could broadcast over Hamas's media outlet, al Aqsa TV. They also prayed that God would extend the Sheikh's life to allow him to pray alongside them in Jerusalem's Al Aqsa Mosque.
