A couple of days ago, Magic Martin sent me a 90 second clip of Muslim Brotherhood principle, Al-Qaradawi (sp) explaining that without the ‘Death for Apostasy’ laws, Islam would have failed with the death of Mohamed, as people would never stay in this religion otherwise.
Truly a stunning admission.
I have been attempting to get a good translation of this, but meanwhile, a friend of ours managed to do one of most of it here. I am working on creating what will be a more thorough version of it nonetheless but for the moment, please check this version out.
Also, please have a look at Andrew Bostom’s archive on Apostasy and its importance here.
Who he is:
Yusuf al-Qaradawi is an Egyptian-born fundamentalist cleric and a prominent leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. The MB was suppressed by the Egyptian establishment for decades, so Sheikh Qaradawi lived in exile in Qatar for almost fifty years, until February 2011, when the Arab Spring enabled him to return to Egypt in triumph.
