Union Headed by al-Qaradawi Urges 'Day of Rage' for Syria Rebels

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A Sunni Muslim union headed by influential cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi on Friday called for a "Day of Rage and Support" for rebels fighting Syrian regime troops backed by a Shiite axis.

The Association of Muslim Scholars urged its millions of supporters to demonstrate, stage peaceful sit-ins, make speeches and pray for the Syrian rebels on Friday, June 14.

The Qatar-based group strongly condemned "the horrific crimes... committed by the Syrian regime, with support from Iran and its tails in Lebanon, in Qusayr," the town rebels were ousted from on Wednesday.

Syria's 26-month civil war erupted after forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, who belongs to the Alawite offshoot of Shiite Islam, waged a bloody crackdown on democracy protests.

The conflict pitting regime forces backed by Hizbullah, including jihadists linked to al-Qaida, has killed at least 94,000 people.

On Thursday, the grand mufti of Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia urged governments and fellow clerics to punish Hizbullah for its intervention in the war.

Mind you he said peaceful sit-ins, but the overall event "a day of Rage and support". Peaceful rage, as in where you hit yourself on the head.

It took Europe 30 years of savage warfare to stop their destructive sectarian war. I hope Muslims do not make the same senseless exercise. And to all sides using religion as cover: whether qardawi or nasrallah. Please shut up and mind your business.

Say no to drugs. I think after reading your post we need to make sure that FT and Mowaten can no longer purchase glue from the store or other inhalants.

Wish all clerics hide behind their religious robes and let the nations run without the rhetoric of religious zealots.
The civilians are brain washed twice by the religious clerics:
To maintain the religion
To transform the religion into political entity.
That is double dose of brainwashing and time for them to retire,
You can not carry the holly book and the gun.....they are contradictory elements.
