Sheikh Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood's Ideological Guide

(Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center) Sheikh Dr. Yusuf Abdallah al-Qaradawi, whom many consider the supreme religious and ideological authority for the Muslim Brotherhood, has returned to Egypt. His popular program "Life and Islamic Law" is viewed by tens of millions of Muslims on Al-Jazeera TV. In 2003 Qaradawi issued a fatwa declaring that "Islam will return to Europe as a victorious conqueror after having been expelled twice. This time it will not be conquest by the sword, but by preaching and spreading [Islamic] ideology." "The future belongs to Islam....The spread of Islam until it conquers the entire world and includes both the East and West marks the beginning of the return of the Islamic Caliphate." Qaradawi enthusiastically supports Palestinian terrorism, including suicide bombing attacks targeting the civilian Israeli population, and issued fatwas calling for jihad against Israel and the Jews. He regards all of "Palestine" as Muslim territory, strongly opposes the existence of the State of Israel and rejects the peace treaties signed with it.
