The latest revisions of Sunni Muslim cleric Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi are an important development. He stood up and said: “For years I have called for bringing Islamic doctrines together. I traveled to Iran during the days of former president Mohammed Khatami. But they have fooled me, and many others like me. They used to say that they (too) want to unite the different doctrines."
Sheikh Qaradawi admitted his mistake saying: “I defended the so-called Nasrallah and his party, the party of tyranny... in front of clerics in Saudi Arabia. It seems that the clerics of Saudi Arabia were more mature than me.”

We've gone through dialectic battles with all of Iran's allies, Hezbollah and Syria's regime. We've fought battles with their intellectuals and preachers because we know the essence of these regimes, their aims and the details of their activity. We know that the majority of people who followed the path of these evil groups were deceived. We know that they followed them out of good intents but as you know, the road to hell is has a lot of good intentions. Sheikh Qaradawi himself believed many illusions just like many clerics who engaged in politics with plenty of enthusiasm and with little political knowledge.SHOW MORE
