Famed Egyptian-Born Suni Cleric Issues Fatwa Calling For Gaddafi Death

Posted on February 22, 2011


The Egyptian-born influential Suni Muslim cleric, Yusuf al-Qaradawi has issued a fatwa encouraging Libyan soldiers to kill Muammar Gaddafi.

The West accuses the cleric of supporting “terrorism” because he sanctioned Palestinian suicide attacks in Israel. Britain and the United States have refused to grant him entry visas.

The cleric, spiritual leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and longtime resident of Qatar, heads the International Union for Muslim Scholars.
