Shiekh Qaradawi supports western block against Syria

Yusuf Qaradawi has issued a fatwa that allows Syrians to call for UN-backed intervention in their country’s affairs.

“We were among those who called for revolution,” says the sheikh in an interview with the Financial Times posted Thursday, acknowledging his important role “before, after and in the future”.

It is worthy to mention that Sheikh Qaradawi, who declared his support for the Arab world revolutions and uprisings against dictator regimes, has been criticized for playing down the peaceful revolution in Bahrain, where he supports Gulf Arab states’ line (Peninsula Shield), saying that the popular protests were sectarian and had links with Iran, the claims which have been denied recently by the commission inquiry of the Bahraini Monarchy.
