Anti-Israel Cleric Elected to Head Group of Muslim Scholars

(Algemeiner) John Rossomando - Moroccan cleric Ahmed al-Raissouni, who says that Israel's destruction is a duty for "the entire Muslim Ummah," was elected on Wednesday to head the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group which has a long history of supporting terrorism and is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. He succeeds IUMS founder Yusuf Qaradawi, 93, the Muslim Brotherhood's most influential religious scholar, who stepped down last weekend. Qaradawi is best known for his endorsement of Palestinian suicide bombings and for encouraging Muslims to move to Europe and America to Islamize them. Egypt, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain classify the IUMS as a terrorist organization for its role in trying to destabilize those countries. The IUMS counts Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh as a member.
