Syria conflict: Cleric Qaradawi urges Sunnis to join rebels

An influential cleric has called on Sunni Muslims from around the Middle East to go to Syria to join the battle against President Bashar al-Assad.

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian Islamist based in Qatar, told a rally in Doha that every Sunni capable of fighting should support the rebels.

He also claimed Iran and the Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah, Mr Assad's main allies, wanted to exterminate Sunnis.

His call came as fighting continued for the control of the key town of Qusair.

Rebel-held parts of Qusair, which is situated between Homs and the Lebanese border, are effectively blockaded by government forces and Hezbollah fighters, reports the BBC's Jim Muir in Beirut.

Conditions inside Qusair are said to be dire, especially for civilians and wounded trapped there, our correspondent adds.

Some civilians trying to flee are reported to have been killed. Activists said an entire family of seven were executed at Dabaa, just to the north of Qusair. The report could not be independently verified.

Reinforcements from the Free Syrian Army are reported to have managed to break through from the north-east to support the embattled rebel fighters.

Some Lebanese Sunnis have also crossed into Syria to fight alongside the rebels, who are drawn largely from Syria's majority Sunni community.'Party of Satan'

Addressing a solidarity rally for Syria in Qatar's capital on Friday evening, Sheikh Qaradawi urged Sunnis throughout the region to follow suit and join the battle.

"Every Muslim trained to fight and capable of doing that [must] make himself available," he said.

"Iran is pushing forward arms and men, so why do we stand idle?"

Sheikh Qaradawi, who has about 60 million followers for his religious programme on al-Jazeera TV, also denounced Hezbollah, whose name means the "Party of God" in Arabic, as the "Party of Satan".

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah declared a week ago that the group had sent fighters to Syria to assist forces loyal to President Assad, and vowed to fight to the end to defeat the rebellion and defend Lebanon from jihadist extremists.

"The leader of the Party of Satan comes to fight the Sunnis... Now we know what the Iranians want... They want continued massacres to kill Sunnis," Sheikh Qaradawi told the rally.

Our correspondent says the call was a clear sign of how rising sectarianism between Sunnis and Shia threatens to tear the region apart.

The cleric used to be an advocate of rapprochement with the Shia and defended Hezbollah against other Sunni authorities.

Now, he said he regretted that, because he realised that there was no common ground between the two, because the Iranians, especially hardliners, just wanted to "devour" the Sunnis.

The fierce fighting in Qusair and other parts of Syria has raised concerns about the prospects of a peace conference proposed by the United States and Russia.

On Friday, diplomats told the Guardian newspaper that the negotiations on a political solution to the conflict were almost certain not to take place in Geneva in early June as scheduled. They remained hopeful that they would go ahead, probably in July or August.

The main opposition alliance, the National Coalition, has ruled out taking part while civilians are being killed and "in the light of Hezbollah and Iran's militia's invasion of Syria".

US Secretary of State John Kerry meanwhile criticised Russia for agreeing to supply the Syrian military with advanced S-300 missile defence system.

"Whether it's an old contract or not, it has a profoundly negative impact on the balance of interests and the stability of the region," he said.

Russia has itself criticised the European Union's decision to allow its arms embargo on Syria to expire on Saturday to allow weapons to be sent to the opposition.

More than 80,000 people have been killed and 1.5 million have fled Syria since the uprising against Mr Assad began in 2011, according to the UN.

Yeaaah, HizbulShaytan, they love to say that, but Al-Qaeda is Al-Zaqqum.

If we pay close attention, what Qaradawi has done is declare war on Shi'ism. Sunnis have never in their history ever been so bumped up about anything, not even the Brits or Israel.

True, but I don't think Qardawi is the leader of FSA? I see Aroor more better?

The biggest irony of the whole situation is how Hamas and Israel have ended up aligned on the same side. These people would rather live under the boot of an oppressive zionist regime than alongside the Shi'a. The same countries funding the rebels in Syria were happy to distance themselves from the Palestinian cause while the only support (physical and financial) came from the people they're declaring jihad on now.

If this isn't nasb, I don't know what is.

The biggest irony of the whole situation is how Hamas and Israel have ended up aligned on the same side.

Both are now being funded by Qatar, which has trade relations with Israel and is looking to improve ties. The question will be how much Hamas will be expected to 'compromise' with the Israelis in order to keep the Qataris happy.

Once they do, that will be game over for the Palestinians, since the PLO have already sold out.

The more i hear their leaders speak the more I realize why we should respect and follow our religious leaders. No one declared war on sunniism when Saddam killed just as many Shias. No one encouraged killing Sunnis in Iraq when Al-Qaeda was killing civilians nonstop. Shias in pakistan have never bombed a single Sunni Masjid.

If our leaders do say anything they think before they speak. Just look at Nasarallahs reasoning. And look at how Sistani handled Iraq.

Obviously Qardawi dosn't get his religion from the Ahlul Bayt and the difference between those that do and do not is evident now. One side is the sensational hot head sell outs. They lack reason and wisdom and have no value at all for human life. They bomb and behead and ally themselves with American interest. If Qardawi really wanted too stop the suffering in Syria there were other more effective ways. In his position he could have easliy reached out to other. Obviously he lacks foresight and aql and has no idea about what he's doing

Yes supporting dictators like Assad? Oh it is okay because Assad is fighting Takfiris and Wahabis.

Many here make the distinction between wahabis and sunnis very subjectively, it is ridiculous.

For those who say FSA is pro-Israel and Hamas is siding with israel, that is a joke.

Hamas and Gaza's resistance to Israel is by far the greatest, not even comparable to that of Hizb or any group.

But again, anyone who doesn't side with Hizb is of course automatically an Mossad agent.

This is nothing but a repeat of history as "clerics" like this munafiq Qaradawi have been recycled through out history by corrupt khilaphats/kingdoms in the region. This time the dog is barking for Qatar.

Any way I wonder how these sunnis think that Qatar is looking out for their interests - that overweight dictator didn't even respect his own "father" and stormed his palace, what does he think hes going to do with them when he gets the things he wants?

Why do these people have signs reading 'i am umar' lol

The "i am umar" idiocy is some thing these people have picked up from their sunni-arab chauvinistic financiers. They commonly say stupid things like - we are going to crush the majoos the way that Umar did. (majoos being the pre-islamic iranians, and a derogatory term for shias today). They are constantly bragging about how "brave" umar was, and how they are going to re-live his savagery on shias and use his image to instill fear in them as they claim we hate him because he destroyed pre-islamic iran.

It goes deeper than that. Indonesians have a history of extreme violence, rape, ethnic cleansing, racism etc. In terms of savagery, Indonesia is on par with Nazi Germany.

See the following article: http://www.counterpu...e-in-indonesia/

Here are two excerpts:

In those days, I managed to smuggle myself into East Timor, on several occasions. In places like Ermera, the Indonesian military was known to arrive unexpected, arrest all men and then rape all females, from babies to grandmothers in their 80’s. Once my work to expose the horror of occupation was discovered, I got detained and tortured, and my films confiscated.

...

In a gendered analysis of the Killings, Saskia Wieringa found that in Indonesia’s sexually repressed society, the alleged brazen sexual transgressions of the Gerwani women were both arousing and infuriating to the young, often religious [sunni], men who comprised the majority of the killers. The forms that violence against women took bear out this argument. A document received by the human rights group, Tapol is particularly illuminating: a female PKI member was ordered to strip and had her “body and honor” burned before she was hacked to death; a newlywed Gerwani member was raped multiple times by an Ansor group and then was “slit open from her breasts to her vulva”; a woman nine months pregnant, was killed, then had her stomach cut open and her child butchered; another Gerwani leader was impaled through her vagina with a sharpened bamboo pole. These extremes of violence, reflect the dehumanization caused by the Gerwani myth, and also a reassertion of male power and control over female sexuality, eliminating those who would challenge it.

So this is a symptom of a larger problem, and it seems that Umar is their role model, inspired by Sunnism.

Hi Greg,

Do you think Sunnis care?

I think that they used to. I can remember 20 to 30 years ago reading a book published by the Islamic opposition in Syria (definitely a predominantly Sunni group), and in it, among a wide variety of issues, they complained about Iran's close cooperation with the Syrian regime. Oddly enough, they spoke admiringly of the Islamic Republic, and were entreating the Khomeini government to change its stance. This was during the Iran-Iraq war, and they expressed some understanding of the logic behind Iran's position, but they argued that Iran should follow a more principled position, rather than a more narrow strategic calculation. They certainly didn't buy into Saddam Hussein's nonsense about "protecting Arabism against the Persian menace", and they actually agreed with Hafez al-Assad's position that Saddam's war was a war of aggression against a friendly (even fraternal) power.

They complained about the domination of Nussairis in the Syrian army and government, and pointed out their heterodox beliefs, but they drew a distinction between Nussairis and the orthodox Shi’a. And they also recognized that the Nussairis (despite their beliefs) were (like the Christians and Druze) part of the fabric of Syrian society, and they never advocated anything like ethnic cleansing.

Furthermore, they echoed the famous Syrian Sunni alim, Rashid Ridha, in lamenting the fact that Shi’a ulama have historically been able to garner far greater prestige and respect than their Sunni counterparts and admitted that this was somewhat justified by the fact that so many Sunni ulema tend to simply echo the party line as dictated by their respective governments.

And just so that you know that this book wasn’t just a propaganda piece written to reassure everyone of how pacific they were in their attitude to foreign powers, they were quite contemptuous of the Zionist collaborationist regimes of Egypt under Sadat and the Hashemite government in Jordan, and they were even more condemnatory of the Wahabi monarchs of the Gulf.

Unfortunately, this desired cooperation between Sunnis and the Shi’a seems to have been swallowed up in recent days by the groups fanning the flames of ethnic/religious hatred. (sorry for the long winded reply)

Yes I agree they were like this, but I feel like today they are willing to sacrifice their own interests and morals in order have their sectarian or tribal fix. In other words, the Sunnis today don't really care if Israel benefits. They don't care if they become homeless, have their wives and children be forced into prostitution ... as long as they can give the Shias or Alawis a smack, it's all worth it.

How can the Shias, who form only 15% of the Muslims, seek to exterminate the Sunnis, who form 85% of the Muslims?

Only idiots or ignorents will believe this.

The Arab world needs a hero to rise and restore the the family. Ive never seen so much evil as bad as sectarian religion.

That is the good thong about the Syrian regime. They are proudly Arab, they tolerate all religious minorities, and although it's an Arab-nationalistic regime, they aren't racist towards Iranians. The only thing Syria was lacking was political freedom, which is nowhere to be found in the Arab world.

What is more believable?

1) USA + Israel + Sunni + Satan + Dajjal.

Or,

2) USA + Israel + Sunni + (ma'azAllah) Allah + Mahdi?

No in fact it is pretty obvious because US and IL can't be on the good side.

Look up the Kurdish insurgency in Syria and you'll understand why.

It was in 1962 that a lot of Kurds were stripped on Syrian citizenship. Bashar in 2011 only gave citizenship to a minority of them. And you can't oppress people and expect they don't rebel.

Look up the Kurdish insurgency in Syria and you'll understand why.

Bashar has denied Kurds as well the majority of the population from their basic rights.

All of top generals in the army and intelliegence that have the real control are Allawaits, and that are favored in everything in Syria.

Rami makloof (Alawait), bashar's in law, control most of the Syrian economy.

The regime is not only extremely oppressive but also extremely sectarian and favours its own sect.

Alawites have been Sunnified during the al-Assad dynasty. No one here is sectarian except for Jahbat al-Nusra and its low-life supporters. And Bashar might not even be Alawite:

Mister Joseph Qaradawi almost as much as IS the Emir of Qatar, as Qaradawi has been set upon a puffy cushion in the court of the Qartari Emir nearly all his life and does his bidding, as does Al-Jazeera television.

A little heard bit of trivia in our own country is that here, Joseph Qaradawi and the Emir of Qatar have quasi secretly channeled most of the funding going into the so-called 9 11 Mosque, the Islamic center opening behind the site of the 9 11 World Trade Center attacks, which is now nearly complete, and as the so called united states of America has managed to keep hush hush the whole way through. The very same Islamic center behind which God Had Seen Fit to have wedged a portion of one of the two takfiri baby killer driven flights into the North and South towers which very recently appeared in America's newspapers.

Mister Joseph Qaradawi urges people to go to hell.
